Homework: What animal would you be?

May 24, 2012 20 comments

Now, don’t be confused here… I am not asking you what your favourite animal is! That would be very uninteresting indeed. I am asking you to think about yourself, your personality and your  behaviour and find an animal that is similar to you! IT IS NOT EASY. Believe me.

When you have thought about it deeply. Find a high quality image of the animal and create a JPEG with a description about why you and the animal are so similar. Make the description nice to read.

Here is mine:

Art reflections

During today’s Art lesson we will be looking back at some of the amazing masks that we have made.

Click on the picture to see all our outstanding designs.

We are going to add a picture of our mask to our e-portfolio. Try and answer the below questions after you add the photo of your work.

  • How was working with clay different than other media (materials)?
  • Would you do anything different if you could do it again?
  • What do you think you did well?
  • Look back at your plan – did you make any changes to your original plan? If so why?
  • What is the function of your masks?

Playing with the Moog

Google’s homepage is a fully functional Moog synthesizer at the moment. This is pretty cool! So, I gave the students the chance to play around with it this afternoon – after a very brief demonstration and explanation of what the parameters mean they were off!

Homework: Who Are You?

May 21, 2012 23 comments


You have TWO DAYS to complete this task.

Together, we will create a “Who are we?” display in the classroom. You need to prepare a visual that shows people the information about you that you think is most important.

Think about:

  • Your personality
  • Your values
  • Your culture
  • Your interests
  • Your family and friends
  • Your likes and dislikes
  • Any other things that make you interesting or unique

Make your visual:

  • Good to look at
  • Clear that it is about you
  • Show things that are not already obvious to us (VERY IMPORTANT – Don’t just tell us a whole lot of stuff we know, like “I like football”)
