Taonga time


Last week on Friday I went to room 18 to do ice hockey. Mr Barks told us the rules and about safety because our teeth might come out if you get hit. At first he told us about the first rule. There was no high stick allowed. If you do it you get sin binned. Mr Barks told us about being offside and shoulder barging. He then asked if we needed a mouthguard, cap, and a helmet, because if you don’t get any of them you will get hurt.

Next, we played and my team was good because we won lots of games at Tamaki. Mr Barks and I were one of the best, but then I kept on getting the ball and shooting it in the goal. Sometimes I missed the goal. Mr Barks is the man because when he shot long he sometimes gets it in, but then we won against the boys.

At last, it was the final. The girls were pretty good but we kept on losing so we lost. We didn’t really lose. We felt sorry for them, so we let them win.

Kane Compare and Contrast Picasso's 'The Weeping Woman' and and Daniella Hulmes 'A lazy day in paradise'.


On Monday the 14th of may we wrote about Compare and Contrast Picasso and Daniella too. The Weeping Woman look like she was sad and crying because it look like someone died. Picasso does random drawing and colourful colours it just look real because it look 3D. The technique that Picasso used was changing his drawing and making it different.

A lazy day in Paradise Daniella draw samoa patten because she married to a samoan Man. She like to draw samoa patterns and it look like it was the same one because it all seem the same because Daniella all way in the picture but she look kind of sad because she was alone. Daniella used different  technique it was special kind of brush stroke technique.

Henry Matisse and Van Gogh



We were asked to compare and contrast paintings by Van Gogh and Matisse. The paintings were called ‘Sunflowers’ and ‘La Musique’. Vincent Van Gogh used a special kind of brush stroke technique. He chopped off his ear and give it to his girlfriend but she didn't like it so she chucked it away because she was scared. Van Gogh chopped off his ear for nothing. Matisse's drawing are rough and colourful.

When I observe Vincent Van Gogh's painting,  the sunflowers look dead, burnt and sad. It looked like Vincent Van Gogh never look after his sunflowers. He used brown, yellow, and green. The background colour looks light yellow or brown.

Matisse drawings are kind of messy and his artwork looks very rough. He drew two ladies. One was with a guitar and one was sitting down. I like the background because it was like a cold shady place with the leaves.

Both paintings are opposites because one looks happy and one looks sad. La Musique is the happy painting and Sunflowers is the sad one.
