For writing we have This term we have been learning about persuasive writing. First we learnt about how to write arguments and debates. Then we learned about how to write a persuasive speech with including the correct structure language to use. Finally for the last two weeks we have been learning about how to persuade through advertisements. ~Owen
For our advertisements we got into partners and brainstormed a range of products that we would like to sell. Next we selected our targeted audience and thought about the language features we needed to include in our advertisement. ~Sophia
To be successful with creating an advertisement we had to include a slogan, a picture, an imperative (command or order), emotive language and bold bright colours and writing.~Brooke
For visual art we have been studying the work from the Swiss artist Paul Klee (clay).
The first task we did was called ‘Taking a line for a walk’. We had to start somewhere on the page and begin drawing up, down looping side to side without taking the pencil off the paper. We then had to colour in each section with bold bright colours. No neighbouring section were allowed to be the same shade of colour just like Paul Klee’s artwork. ~Britney
The artwork we are doing at the moment is called ‘smashed window’. We traced one of our hands and then we put a dot somewhere on the paper.
We then drew lines coming out from the dot. Miss Jones put glue on each of the lines. We then had to choose either two cold colours or 2 warm colours to use for our hand.
