Manaiakalani Film Festival!

Yesterday our whole school went to the Maniakalani Film Festival at Hoyts Cinemas. First of all we all needed to be seated, waiting for the movies to start. Once the movies started, I was thrilled to see the lights turn off and the speakers piercing loud. Afterwards the dramatic sounds have finished, the performers introduced themselves and their movie. 

Therefore everyone's movies were fascinating but it was time to go. It felt like half an hour but it was literally one hour!

πŸ“‘ Vocabulary Testing πŸ“‘

Today I attended a vocabulary test for the year 7's. We had twenty-five minutes maximum to accomplish the test. Within five to ten minutes I completed about ten to fifteen questions. They just showed one sentence with a year seven vocabulary word and think of something similar to compare it. In the mean time, twenty-five minutes was up and the miscellaneous collected the sheets and booklets to hand to our teacher. Therefore we finished testing and headed back to class.

πŸ“– Testing Day πŸ“–

On Thursday Room 12 had to do an assessment, about divisions, multiplication, addition, subtraction and spelling. We all had to complete one sheet within 2 minutes. When I had finished each sheet and had time left over, I checked my work for any errors. Afterwards when testing was over, the scores were revealed and I saw my name highlighted in green. I looked at every maths sheet and I scored one wrong. I realized I looked through all tests but apparently not. Even worst it was from multiplication, I felt apprehensive at my work even when I lost a mark.

πŸ”§Week 1 Nobel Pineda TechnicraftπŸ”§

I was finally back at Technicraft. I was quite dismayed for being away that long.

First thing I did was to create my own takeaway box and design it with my own thoughts. Once I had completed my plan, Mr Pineda  provided me with  a piece of paper with a three dimensional shape.

After I put all my ideas and methods are on a sheet, I had to colour it in. Then I  showed it to Mr Pineda and he handed out ten points. Eventually, it was time to pack up and if you clean the classroom your points will be increased by two. I enjoyed Ttechnicraft, but it was time to go.

Colour Combination

Firstly grab a cardboard and find a circle object with a diameter of 10 cm. Afterwards cut out your circle and make holes in each of your circles. Find the centre point, measure 1 cm on either side of the circle and poke a nail into it. Also cut out 1 metre length of string for this process to work. Lastly  colour half of each side red, green or blue.

Then put the string through the holes and spin them to create changing colours.

Learn 3D Shapes

Today at Technicraft I attended a graphics class and had a lesson on  3-dimensional shapes. Mr Pineda our instructor  reviewed  how to cut 3-dimensional shapes. Afterwards, I had to design my  first 3 dimensional shape.. Once you complete your 3-dimensional shape you gain points for yourself. The harder the cutting, folding, and gluing the pieces together, the more points you will receive.

Graphics With Nobel Pineda

Yesterday at Technicraft we were with Nobel Pineda our teacher. He informed us how to draw and sketch our names for art. Afterwards when most year 7's were done, they had to move onto the next task: naming a restaurant, names for your products and ingredients.

All I was focusing on was points. When you achieve something Mr Pineda will add up your points on a score board. The most points will win a prize or just nothing, it depends.

Furthermore drawing was enjoyable but studying on chrome was more effective!
