Today our class had a geometry kesson. Our problem was very confusing. I had two partners and there name's are Mateaki and Sam. Our problem was called Carries Cubs. This is the Sheet that we worked on.

           Carries Cubes
Walt: identify classes of two- and three-dimensional shapes by their geometric properties.

Carrie has glued some cubes together to make a large solid cube with nine small cubes showing on a face.
She paints the large cube red.

This is the answers that we got.
How many of the original small cubes have:
  1. three faces painted red

  1. two faces painted red

  1. one face painted red

  1. no faces painted red

To solve it we drew the dots over the pattern to get the answer.

Vist to the childhood centre

Today my class had the chance to visit Glenbrae kids it was very awesome because of Miamis two nephew's named Trevor and Tarzan. We had lots of wars with the toys and we also drove the trolley around the centre. Then we sat on the mat and had a war with Miamis partner.

At the end we had a little play, then it was time to go. Miami and I said goodbye to them then we departed.

Abstract Painting

My Artist: Morris Louis
Born: November 28, 1912 - Baltimore, Maryland
Died: September 7, 1962 -Washington

What did he do:
Morris Louis became one of the leading figures of Color Field painting, along with his contemporaries Kenneth Noland and Helen Frankenthaler. In his short yet prolific career, most of which he spent in Baltimore and Washington, D.C., Louis continually experimented with method and medium, manipulating large canvases in creative ways to control the flow and stain of his acrylic paints. His mature style, characterised by layered veils and rivulets of poured acrylic paint on untreated canvases, makes his paintings some of the most iconic works of Color Field painting.

This was 2 of his painting that he drawed.
This is what he called Veil Paintings of his own.

Birthday Party

As it was heading on to 9:00pm the party was just about to begin. The funny thing was  that I didn't know it was my birthday. I was so surprised that when I got there and came in,  they came so fast at me with the biggest surprise that I could ever hear in my life.

After that everyone sang the happy birthday song, it was very special and I knew that I was never going to forget the moment. Soon after they had finished, they brought out a massive cake just so I could blow the candles out. After that it was time to wait for a few minutes so that the mothers could finish preparing the food for people to eat.

Next after everyone finished we waited until desert, so in the meantime we had to just play on the family’s PS4, the game that we were playing was called Black Ops 3(BO3), it was a game of shooting and violence, but it was very fun and challenging at the same time.

Finally after the mum’s had finished preparing the dessert they brought it out to the middle of the table for everyone to come and grab a refreshment. Shortly after everyone had one or two it was time to give the birthday boy there presents, the presents that I got was very interesting and fun at the same time.

As soon as it was coming to the end of the party we all came and sat down for the last remarks. Firstly we had to do a little prayer before everyone had to sadly leave. As we were packing up our aunty siad if we wanted to finish off the night by watching a movie
