Learning to use Synonyms - Maata

This morning we were learning about Synonyms. Synonyms are words that mean the same as another word but could make your sentence more interesting. Our task was to replace a word in the sentences above, the word we changed is highlighted in red. To find the synonyms we went to google dictionary and looked up the word definition and synonym, then we needed to check the word made sense in our sentence.

Tech - Stained glass

Today was our first Rotation with Mr Grundy For Hard Materials. We will be working with stained glass. Mr Grundy showed us how to cut glass safely and how to use the copper tape and the soldering iron, as we will be using this equipment later when we have designed our picture. We then began working on the design stage and had to create six options that we may be able to use. It was quite tricky coming up with a design because you need to have straight edges for when you cut the glass.
