Quinntons Olympic Medal Making

Olympic medals


Quinnton enjoyed making his olympic medal. In class he made made it out of clay. He put patterns in it using a stencil.He put the stencil on his round bit of clay and pushed it down to make the shape of a dinosaur.  He also has a motorbike on it. He used a stencil for this too. On his first medal he coated his medal in this stuff called plaster of paris and he waited for it to set then he pulled it out and he had a medal but he has not added the plaster to his second one yet.

Olympic medals

We used clay to make these olympic medals. We also used some materials in our classroom to make them. I like making the medals because we can customise them. We made the medals so they look like ones from the olympics. We made to be like Olympic medals.
When we customise the medal we put on anything we like. "I put some great marks on mine" - said Sam.

My week

Gnarleys Art

by Gnarley 

I made olympic torches and then I wrote about it.  First I got a big piece of paper and then I rolled it into a cone shape.  And then I put cellotape on it.  Then I painted it green and yellow and blue and red.  We put red cellophane on it for the fire.  We then let it dry and I took mine home.

Summary of the Olympics

This week we have been learning about the Olympic games.
I drew an awesome Olympic picture and I'm really proud of it. 
We were also learning about the Olympic torch.
I know that the Olympic torch gets passed around the world. 
One day I hope to carry the Olympic torch. In the olympics there are 28 sports and 10500 athletes.

Our learning by Kayden and Sam

                                       Olympic Torches


Room 4 has learning about the Olympics and we made some Olympic torches.
An olympic torch is a torch that has a flame that never goes out . To light a Olympic torch they get a mirror to reflect the sun to create fire that lights the torch. They take the torch all around Brazil and pass the flame on to the next athlete. We got paper we made stripes on them painted it, then we put red cellophane on it, to look like a flame.




Milan

I've been doing handwriting this week in class, and I have also been doing reading.
When I went to lunch and ate all of my food and then played tag with my friends Quinnton and Sam. I was very fast and I didn't get tagged. Then I went back to class and sat down on the mat and listened to my teacher she told us to go to our desks and do writing we got to write about anything we wanted. I wrote about dinosaurs they fought each other and the T-rex won.

Olympic torches by Oliver and Quinnton

Last Friday Room 4 made Olympic torches out of paper and cellophane and painted them.We decided to make these because of the Olympic games happening in Rio de Janeiro. The Olympic torch gets passed around the world until it got to Rio de Janeiro.
It was fun building the torches. When I get older I want to take the Olympic torch around the world.

Maths by Khorus supported by Bryce

Maths
Khorus is looking forward to doing maths in room 4. At the moment he is learning adding and soon he will be going to do some multiplication and this is one that Khorus knows : 4x5=20. He worked it out like this - he went (4x5) four groups of five so five plus five is ten and ten plus ten is twenty so thats four groups of five and four groups of five is 4x5 and 4x5=20.

By Khorus and Bryce

Petra's Olympic week

I liked the colouring of the Olympics.

Gnarley's blog

Room 4 
Room 4 have been making Olympic torches lately at school.
They have also been drawing Gold, Silver and Bronze Medals.
Gnarley's favourite Medal was the Gold one.
And I am going to make Vinicious and Tom out of paper.

Ava's Olympics

This week we have been learning about Olympics. We made some awesome torches just like the one that gets passed around the world. We have also been watching  videos of the torches getting passed around the world they get lit by a torch.  After the torch has travelled the world it comes to Rio de Janeiro for the Olympic Opening Ceremony. One day I wish that I could carry the Olympic Torch around, where all the countries walk in. 

In the Olympics there are 28 sports and 10500 competitors.  My favourite sport in the Olympics is girls artistic gymnastics and syncronised swimming. We were also learning about the two mascots of the Olympic games Vinicious and Tom.  Vinicious is made out of the zoo animals like birds, snakes, monkeys and crocodiles and Tom is made out of fruit like grapes, bananas, strawberries and apples.
The people who have one arm or a disability go to Toms Olympics that is called the Para Olympics. The people who have a full body go to Vinicious Olympics.
We also made some drawings about the Olympics because its almost Brooklyn Schools olympic day we will be travelling to the Rec Centre to do some awesome sports. I am so excited to carry on our Olympic work
