Holiday Reading Challenge - Setting

While doing the holiday reading challenge I chose this book called Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. The cover caught my attention, but the blurb at the back made me want to read it even more. My first task for the Holiday Reading Challenge was the setting. The first setting is at 4 Privet Drive where the Dursleys' live. Then we had to write the title, Author, What type of book it was and a line from the book describing the setting.

LS1 Geometry Art

This week and last, Mr Ogilvie's groups did Geometry art. First we started with a white A3 sheet of paper with perspective lines. We then used google to search for images of 3d shapes. I drew a hexagon prism, pentagon prism, cone, square based pyramid, cylinder, cube, cuboid, and a triangle prism. Once we drew the shapes in pencil, we began to color the background using pastels. I chose the colors Blue and Yellow. After colouring the backgrounds we used a ruler to measure the floor. Then we used the checkered board patterns for the floor. We then coloured it in white and black. After that we used a vivid to go around edges of each shape. Finally, we used one more pastel to color our shapes. I had lots of fun doing this project during the past 2 weeks.
