My Movie

Today I made a movie. I made this with my friend Jaxson. Thanks to Mrs Moala for letting us use some students in her class. Unfortunately We didn’t have enough time to film Jaxson’s part of the script or use his music. I hope you like our video.

The Sphinx

Throughout this term Year 5&6 extension has been learning all about archaeology. We had to find an archaeological site like The Great Pyramids Of Giza, Pompeii and many others. I chose to draw The Sphinx. I found doing the head challenging but I persevered and made it to the end. The easiest part was the background. The background was easy because I just used lines and the paint bucket. I hope you like this drawing.
