Happy Birthday Miss Ouano :):)

Not Long after free time our teacher said to me and my friend “Could you Please go and get the GIANT Cupcake out of my car? ". Me and my friend replied “Okay”, so then we went to the carpark. When we got there we found her car and we saw the GIANT Cupcake! It had blue icing with hearts and stars sprinkles. 

When we got back to class we had a shared lunch. There were lots of chips and biscuits on the table, it was filled with goodies! In our class there are 30 children, so everybody had to bring some food. Some people bought biscuits and chips, I bought Jelly and Biscuits.

When me and my friend finished putting the goodies on the table we sat down and gave out the plates and napkins. After we finished handing out our teacher Miss Ouano cut the GIANT cupcake and asked us to come up to the table. She handed out some pieces to people. Meanwhile other people were lining up to get some food from the goodie table.

People lined up one by one and chose their food. After they went up to the table, more and more people went to go get their food. My class sat down on the mat and ate. We could go get more food if we wanted to and we could get more cake. After we ate there was a big mess so some people stayed and help my teacher clean up.

I hope next term we can have another shared lunch and bring more food. I hope it will be my teachers birthday again and we can have another GIANT Cupcake! It was yummy!

Filled with Excitement Room 14 went on our class trip to Youthtown. We Had Parent Helpers one was my friend Alazae’s Dad named Tamati and the other Parent helper was my Mum named Yvette.When we got to Youthtown we put our bags in a little base room.

We were waiting for instructions and listening to Sue and Georgia. They were telling us what to do and where to go. Room 17 went to relax in the heated pool while we played with the Clay.

When I walked into the Clay Workshop there was lots of Paintings and and colourful things in there. There was colourful glass in there to put on our Clay sculptures.

Making clay was fun, We had really nice tutors to help us making it. Our first instruction was we had to get some ideas for some maori patterns from this maori book, With lots of patterns like flowers and Butterflies.

I hope on our next trip to Youthtown will be so much fun like this one was.

Andy Warhol Biography...

Andy Warhol was an American artist. He was known for his creative and colourful pop art prints. Some examples of his famous art include: Marilyn 1967 and Mao 1972. Did You that Andy Warhol’s Real Name was Andrew Warhola?

He was Born in 1928 and the country he was born in was Pittsburgh Pennsylvania USA. His Parents came from Slovakia and then they moved to New York. The Disease he had was a Chorea Disease that Attacks your heart.

When he was sick he did some things in his bed. He Collected Magazines and Pictures of Celebrities he also listened to the Radio. His Mum Gave him a Chocolate bar every time he finished a Colouring Page in his Colouring Book.

Andy went to a High school named Schenley High School. The Kids at his school did not want to be his friend because he was quiet and He had Shockingly pale skin also White-Blonde Hair. Warhol liked to Collect stuff like Pictures of Supermarket products and Autographed Photos. The University he went to was Carnegie Institute of Technology and he studied a major in pictorial design.

During the 1960’s that is when Andy started creating Pop Art. Celebrities and Supermarket products in his Art Work were Marilyn Monroe,Mao the Chinese President and Muhammad Ali. Also the Supermarket products were Brillo,Campbells Tomato Soup cans and Coca Cola

Warhol created his Art Work at The Factory which was the name of his Studio where he did his Art Work. Some People went to Andy’s Studio the People that went were People from films that he made, some were writers or Artists and also Celebrities.

He Died in 1987 and the age he was when he died was 58. I think that Andy Warhol was a skillful artist and a talented man. His artwork was always magnificent and powerful.

Partly Cloudy :)

Today Room 14 watched a short film Review named Partly Cloudy. The movie was set in the sky with clouds apart from each other. Main Characters in this movie is storks delivering things to people like cute little baby puppies and kittens also little babies.

There were some clouds is this movie that some of them were making bad things and the other ones were making good things. This movie was produced by Pixar Disney also for example Monster Inc,Toy Story and Cars Lightning Mcqueen.

The Main thing is this story is about clouds that are apart from each other and that storks are delivering things to people and the perfect clouds are making them.The main message in this story is about true friendship and that it will never end. I think the cloud Gus and the stork Peck are really going to look forward to their friendship.

I would recommend this film to my Family and Friends because I think they might want to check it out on youtube and that they will laugh . I would want people to watch this short film because they might think it is funny and that the clouds can make stuff with their hands using Lighting.
