My favourite event on the day was shot put because I came 2nd in shot put.

Something I am proud of is coming 2nd in shot put but I am sad because I can not go to zones for shot put.

Art Attack Blog, Week 5, term 3

For art attack my goal was to produce a piece of art related to our local landscape using either paint, water colour or pastel. I did paint
With Mr Rule I looked at the different landscape features of Canterbury and Banks Peninsula.

I enjoyed painting because we learnt to do dry brush. I found it difficult because I had to mix colours to make the correct colour. I included a tree to make make it look a bit more realistic.
