Tech: Last Day

Today was the last day for Tech. My art work is almost finished I need to do a lot of work on my art work since the 2-3 lessons I have been away.

What was the process of making the art work.
First at the beginning of art lesson we had to draw a few of our cultural patterns and pictures. 
The patterns and pictures were to be divided into 5 squares or space.
After that step we had to transfer our pictures and patterns on to wooden block. 
Then we had to carve out the pieces that are not important or the patterns that you done need. Then we had to add a paint to it. My first paint was yellow. Everyone start on yellow.
Then I carved out small pieces of yellow that was sticking pieces that I didn't need. 
I kept do this step over and over again. However I had to have different colours after carving everytime.

Explanation - How Children Learn at School

How Children Learn at School

“Did you know that everybody on earth learns? They learn at different times, different places they even learn different things”. A child’s learning process begins when they start following role models or people around them.

A child starts their learning by observing the things people do around them children are great observers they spark curiosity and experiment with new things. To help them learn about more the things they want to learn.

Children explore the world and the role plays people around them do. For example, a child sees a police officer and as soon as he get home or to school he dresses up like a police officer and pretend to be like them.

A child have the ability to learn numerous things and they take risk to research about something they want to learn about.

A natural process of a child’s learning journey begins when they start following or doing the things people or role models  around them do.

This week we were revising to write an explanation text. First I had to find a partner to work with. My partner was Sanujan. After that we had had to to write an explanation on a piece of paper about How Children Learn at School. Then we had to find another pair and give each other Feedback and feedforward.

1. ( Feedback ) - HI Sanujan and Joshua. Well done on writing a really good explanation.
2. ( Feedforward ) - Maybe next time you could write simple sentences.
