Peace day is on September 21st, today is Nov 9. We have been making peace day flags since September. Along the way, I’ve learned how to sew. I’ve been making mistakes by sewing in from the TOP first.
The thing I wanted to express from my peace day flag is that peace isn’t dark and peace is having a heart. Remembrance day is coming soon so they are putting our flags along the grade 5 hallway. They might even keep it for Christmas.
The techniques I was using was sewing. I also used hot glue for things that couldn’t be sewed onto my peace flag.
I can use this skill by fixing my broken clothes. Instead of spending money to fix your old and torn up clothes, you can just fix it yourself without spending any money.
At the start, I would rate myself a 5. I would rate myself a 5 because I remember i’ve sewed before, but I am sure that I forgot. At the end, I would rate myself a 7 because I thought that I got better and we found out that I started sewing from the top instead of sewing on the bottom.
I think I would be able to use the skills I learned in the future, and I think that I can get better and reach at least a 8 when I grow up.
On April 20th, we had visual arts. Last time in visual arts. This time we did not continue doing our packages. We have all finished that and now we are learning about different famous artists.
We learned about 3 different people (I forgot what their name is). We also had to draw a famous artist’s picture or something that they have painted or drew. This week, we have been learning about Henri Matisse. He was a person that used to colour very bright paintings. Then he caught a disease so he had to sit in a wheelchair. Then he thought of making a new type of art: Cut out art I think it was called. Then we had to create one of our own cut out painting/art.
We did this by not drawing and colouring, instead we needed to cut out random things and glue it to a piece of paper. Or the things that we were cutting out doesn’t need to be random. You can have themes like rainforest or nature or random. I did random because I couldn’t think of anything else. I think we learned about it because we should know what different types of arts they created and who invented types of art. I learned a new type of art. I enjoyed cutting little small pieces out :).
