We got set an extra special task today. We have to write a story about one of our grandparents or great grandparents, or great great great grandparents, someone older than our parents but in our family, and draw a picture, and we get to show it to Mr Tong’s dad when he comes. I am so excited. I will be working very hard on mine.

Today was good. We got to write all the positive things we could think of about the other kids in our class and put it at their animal for them to read later. We didn’t put our names on it so it was all anonymous. It felt good to write so many nice things about people. It was also really nice reading all the nice comments from other people. Somebody wrote for Joshua – You are not an animal, you are a person. I think it was Harnimun. Looks like he’s not so bad after all.

They are all amazing. I am so impressed to see so many talented young artists out there.

Joshua was feeling better today. I am glad. We got told an old tale today in class. The story was about how there are two animals inside each of us. One is good and one is bad. And they battle each other all day long. The one that wins is the one that you feed. We then had to draw a picture of what we thought the two animals inside us were and feed the one we wanted to. I drew two monkeys, Joshua drew two cats, Tarni drew two fairies. They weren’t animals but the teacher said it was okay anyway. Joshua was a bit upset she hadn’t followed instructions. But not as upset as he was with Elcob. Elcob didn’t draw anything. He’s so naughty. I can’t believe he didn’t do his work. You have to do your work otherwise you won’t get to do your work.

Lens flare

9 Nov

My favourite tool in PhotoShop has got to be lens flare. Just do a couple of these on coloured background and you’ve got an awesome space feel. Then

add whatever effects you like, for example smudge stick or ink outline, for an even cooler image. I love you lens flare.

We got to paint today. We’re doing stuff about our homes. We got to paint a picture of our homes and write about our homes today. It was cool. And then at the end of the day our teacher read us a story about his home when he was our age that he had written, and even showed us some pictures. It was so cool. Mr Tong comes from Earth from a place called China. That’s so incredible. He’s lived here for 20 years. 20 years is like forever! He must be so old. I bet he’s been alive longer than anybody else I have ever met. Joshua also had a really interesting picture and stories. He got to write about his old planet because he has just moved here. He’s the only Hippopotati at school so his stuff was so different from everyone elses. It was awesome!
