This week for maths we learnt about Tessellations and how to create them using shapes or cutouts.
I created my cutout tessellation by having one square piece of cardboard and cut through the shape and added it to the opposite end of where I cut it out and it ended up like this;
After that, I copied it onto my sheet with a pencil then coloured it in!

This is my cut out tessellation;

This is also my normal shape tessellation;

Quick wright - Powerless animation

Powerless animation

This week for writing we watched an animation called powerless.
We had a criteria for level 3 writing. This is the criteria;
Use a very short sentence. 
Start your sentence with an AAWWUBBIS (Opener sentence)
Ly start – Start a sentence with a ly adverb.
Em – dash. A dash is used to set off information in a sentence with dramatic flair.
The subject sentence. Start your sentence with the subject. (Interrupter)
The colours is a key for the writing
I used this criteria to create this piece of writing so here's mine;
When night reaches a small unstable house surrounded by large pine trees, tiny strange looking fairies lurking in the trees creep out into the dark.
When one fairy reaches the house, it begins to see an old rustic robot in front of an old man. He quickly flew through the twisted chimney and into the intake pipe on top of the head. The eyes awakened. They began to turn a bright green and the gears and gauges sprang into life. It only wanted one thing. To save its friend.
The aged robot crept out of the door and into the woods. As the old door creaked, the old man woke up and noticed the door was open. The robot continued to, slowly step by step, walk into the woods. There the old man found the robot trying and trying hard to pull a large log up. Under the log, he found a red fairy struggling to get out. The old man quickly ran to the log and pulled as well. When they eventually pulled the log over, the green fairy flew back out of the intake pipe and started to fly away.
The old man then started to walk away - disappointed, colourless. The fairies soon noticed and felt sad. They can see how hard he worked on the useless machine. He only wanted one thing. A power source. And that was what the fairies did. Suddenly they span around in a circle creating bright blue sparkles. Now the robot was alive…

Character vignette - Long living

Our class made a piece of writing by looking at a picture and jot down all the things we noticed I went for a sad story called long living this is it.

Long living

I stood there. With my shoulder blades leaning the wire like laying a blanket on a washing line. I can see them, those big kids talking on the bridge, but they can’t see me. I just stayed where I was. They don’t care. A voice then spoke it sounded familiar. ‘You’re useless,’ then I knew that was just me. ‘I don’t care what anyone says to me, they’ll always be right,’ I mouthed to myself.

As I kept on cursing to myself, every once in awhile I felt the chance. The chance where I can stand up to my brother and all his friends. I could see the dead, wasteland-like leaves blow though the cold air and the skeletal trees lurching over the land. It was God. Until just when I was ready to stand up, it stopped. Like no-one cares about me. Every sudden move I make, I feel like it disturbs the whole environment.

While the brown leaves obscured my new sneakers, it reminded me of dad. Where is he when I need him. He told my older brother to look after me but he didn’t he chooses social more than his family.
I don’t want anything or anyone to put me down. I’m like a rabbit buried alive in its burrow. But then. I finally dig out from my imprisonment exposed to all my surroundings.
‘Who cares what they think of me!’ I said almost shouting it out but I didn’t want to carry it too far.

I’m going to go up to them and correct my brother. He needs to think about family not friends. ‘Who cares if I get embarrassed!’ I said. ‘I’m ready.’

My calendar art

Every year each class made different calendar art. This year in room 2 we made zentangle animals.
Zentangle got its name 'zen' because it's supposed to be a calm type of art.

Here's my owl I made;

Circular nonsense

Our maths project was all about learning the diagonals of a shape.
A diagonal is from one corner of a shape to another corner.
Here is all the diagonals of a pentagon: As you can see it looks like a five point star because there are five corners so a ten sided decagon will make a ten point star by connecting all the diagonals

You might be thinking what about a circle? A circle has infinite diagonals, but you can actually make any point star with a circle for example you can create a ten point star by doing this;

A circle is a 360o  angle so if you want a ten point star you have to;
Divide 360 by 10 = 36 now use the protractor and measure the angle of 36 degrees starting from a line drawn from the of the circle. Each time you measure 36 degrees draw a new line and then measure the degrees again.

This is my 18 point star some parts got messed up but it was pretty hard to make;
