WALT: Apply knowledge about shapes and patterns derived from nature into an original artwork
For Visual Art the SOLO level I achieved was: Extended Abtsract because I used all the techniques and I used shapes derived from nature.
The techniques I used in my art work to achieve this level were: Glazing, Shading and Moving watercolours.
Here is a photo of my art work:
My next step in visual art is: To do better glazing because where I used it (the shell) is not very obvious and it is hard to tell it is glazing.

Something I have learned about the structure of short stories is: They are structured like novels but are much shorter so every thing happens faster.
After reading some short stories two things I will remember when I write my own short story are to be briefer than when writing a narrative and to make an interesting plot.

We have been learning all about What makes a good leader.
We identified that good leaders show 6 main character traits. These are integrity, trustworthy, motivational, active thinking, resilient and goal focused.
The leadership trait that I think I show the most is active thinker because if something doesn't work I try something else.
The leadership trait I would most like to develop is Motivational because I would like to motivate people more.
Something NEW I have learned about leadership is the leadership traits and what they mean.
The SOLO level that I reached during this unit of learning is extended abstract because in my exposition I evaluated the effectiveness of two leaders.
(see slide 2 of the leadership modelling book for this)
My next step in learning about leadership is to apply everything that I have learned about leadership to my own leadership roles.

This is a evaluating information chart about if NZ should change their flag. To make it we had to gather information about the topic and add it to the chart. Then we had to highlight whether it was common knowledge, personal opinion, statistics or expert opinion. Finally we had to write whether each argument was strong, weak or uncertain and give a reason for our choice. I think we went well.
