Wananga II Reflection Post (Aka Reflection Day)

( About my week )
Wananga this week was okay. I don't remember much from Monday and Tuesday nor Wednesday but I remember Thursday and today. Yesterday we had 3 people come in and talk to our whole house (Tiekie) and give us a rundown of things. The first person who came in was one of our librarians, she talked about how the system for getting books outworked and that if needed we could come to them to possibly get new books out for the school. The next person that came in was a teacher of our school who worked for the juniour student council. She talked about some of the opportunities that we could partake in within the school.
And the last person was a lady who worked with many other kids on cyber safety and how to use their blog and gain viewers for their blog.

( About my book )
But apart from that we also did some silent reading. For the last past 2 weeks, I've been reading the graphic novel Alex Rider. Which is about a boy who was on a mission to find out more about his father, while trying to find out information about his father he encounters Scorpia a group his father was in, there he learned that his father was an assassin and that his father was shot from the enemy group of Scorpia, which Alex had soon got involved in after being assigned to kill one of their people and being tricked with bulletproof glass. Only realizing there was glass thereafter he'd fired the gun to take the target down. After he got caught he got stuck into another problem which involved a vaccine that could kill people with the press of a button.

this is what I've managed to get up to so far within the book, but I'm really enjoying the book and its plot, and after I finish the book I'm currently reading on it, I might also read the next one after that. (I left out a few things within the book so some spoilers are left out in case people wish to read Alex Rider)

Book - Scorpia: The Graphic Novel

Dilution Painting II Art

Subject matter




What does my painting depict?

The subject matter of my painting is a painting of Iron Man

How did I create the different tones?

I used diluted white acrylic paint to make a  thin wash.  I brushed this on the painting paper with the black gesso. This created a grey tone. To make lighter, grey tones, I added second and third layers of wash. I also did a bit of outlining in normal black and white paint to make it neater.

How did you compose your subject matter? 

Iron Man is centred in the picture space 

Is your subject matter symbolic or does it express an idea?

My subject matter isn't symbolic. But it represents the marvel series.

How did you paint the highlights? 

Is the negative space important in your painting? 

With white washed paint and plain white paint. Washed paint to smooth it out and normal white paint to add more light to it.

Yes so it can make the character stand out more.

Zeus II Social Studies

Its the start of term 4 which means we have a new topic in Social Studies, in social studies for the topic of this term we started looking at deities/gods and where they're from. For this, we had the Maori deity and had to find out what their job or what they were known as. Once we found that out we had to find the Ancient Greek, Ancient Roman, and Hindu deity of that element that we found from the Maori deity.

After that, we had to pick a deity/god from the list we just made and make a poster about said deity/god
For this I picked Zeus.

I enjoyed doing this topic, in total this took 3 days, 2 days for the god finding because the first day we did it, it was a Wednesday and on Wednesday class hours are shorter, the next day was Thursday where I finished my god finding and picked one, that's where I began to put down my notes so I could then transport it to my poster, and today Friday I finished off the last part of my notes and made the poster.
