Ancient Olympics

The Olympics began over two and half thousand years ago in Ancient Greece. In those days Greece was made up of several different states including Athens, Sparta and Corinth, and they were often at war with each other. But when the games were on, they held a truce.

The greatest event was held at a place called Olympia, and this is why the games are called the Olympics. They were held once every four years in honour of Zeus, Lord of all the gods.

Eventually the ancient Olympics were abolished by the Roman Emperor, Theodosus the First, who was a Christian and didn’t like the games because they were dedicated to a pagan god. But the Olympics were always remembered as a symbol of human achievement and peace.

Geometry garden

Explain how you have used tessellation in your garden.
It used by repeated shapes and there should be no gaps Also the shaped that I used was a triangle and they were green,sliver.

Explain how you have used symmetry in your garden.
1. symmetry is an like a mirror. Also the flowers were made to look beautiful in the path way of tessellation and the flowers are symmetry they are cut by and it has four sides also if you fold it will it will look like it has two sides and that is the is rotation symmetry. Also when turn it around it will look like same.
2. A line of symmetry is just the the butterfly so there is an mirror and there is one half of an butterfly and you draw the same of the other half and that makes reflective symmetry.

My Dream bedroom

Tu tuhi

  First thing in the morning we got to split up in 2 group the first group went on the bus early in the morning also the second group went after morning tea. As they arrived we got ready to go to on our trip on the bus to tu tuhi. As we arrived there was a machine that blows smoke out.

So the whole class went to sit down and waited for Jeremy for instruction. As we were waiting we handed our backs over to the helper and the teachers . So we got up in to two lines to a room to make a dream house.

In the room we made dream houses out of shapes and pencil,glue, and vividering. As we were making our dream we had to sit down for an hour. After making the dream house we got in to two lines and walked down the hall way to the art gallery.

As we got to there we had seen an table with paint and to use the tables is that we had to put on a blind fold to cover and paint people in beside you. After painting we got to stick it on the wall. As we were sticking it on the wall we walk  into the funny we went to bus and went back to school
