is three races a short, medium and long I only did the short
race. Me my mum my brother and my sister and two of
my sisters friends. We all had to tape our shoes on. I lined

mum but then...OH NO I got stuck I had to call my mum.

the fire mens hose to wash of then I lined up to get a little
bag of goodies. I had fun and felt tired.

Seeing Ourselves!

Today Room 13 went to the Corbans Art Centre to learn about portrait painting. We meet Joy and Ann-Sophie who taught us about sketching and painting self-portraits. We learnt about painting a 'Bust' self-portrait, a bust portrait is a portrait from your head to your shoulders. We really enjoyed going and found it to be a lot of fun.

We learnt....
- that your face is more than just one colour
- how to blend colors
- how to use smiley faces and two tear drops to draw a nose
- that our face is an egg shape, not a circle, square or an oval
- how to draw eyes using smiley faces and eyelashes
- how to paint
- that we need to take our time and enjoy the art
- how to sketch using charcoal
All in all we learnt how to do better portraits of ourselves.
