3 Facts about this artist are…
  1. Georgia O’keeffe is known for her beautiful paintings of flowers
  2. Georgia’s eyesight became bad in 1972 and died in 1986
  3. Her spouse ( Alfred Stieglitz ) accidentally showed Georgia’s paintings in his gallery. She got upset by she forgave him.

Here are three examples of her flower paintings

Flower - Lily
Colours - Gold, Green, White, Black
Background -Black
Details - Background is Black and the flower which makes the flower stand out. The middle gold but stands out from the white.
Flower - Poppy
Colours -Black, White and Red
Background -White
Details - Petals off the edge of the picture.The middle of the flower stands is the focus of the painting
Flower - Petunias
Colours -Purple, White and Green
Background -
Details -  Petals are cut off on the edge of the page. Background makes the flowers stand out.

I like petunias best because the middle flower is the focus of the painting and she has also cropped out the edge of the flowers.
I have decided to draw a Blue Morning Glory because it is a beautiful flower and the edge of the petals have overlapped of the painting.  
to make it like a Georgia O’Keefe flower I will overlap some petals outside of the painting.

This week we are learning about Georgia O'keefe. We are doing this because we are drawing flowers and we want to make it look like Georgia O'keefe's flowers. I learnt that Georgia Okeefe's flower paintings are based on the middle of the flower and most of them have overlapping petals.

Chunuk Bair Poem - Personal Connections

At night we climbed a ridge

from the beach up to where

the Turks stood over us.

Finally we were equal warriors,

cresting like a wave,

not washed against a fiery cliff.

We held our ground for two days.

At daybreak, their leader –

a great man with a pocketwatch

and a whip – rose up.

His men surged towards us,

firing from their motherland,

and we fell like rain.

When the snow came,

we left our dead behind.

I went to camp and we owned it for 2 days.

In the morning I climbed up a rock near a beach in Samoa.

As I was standing in the water at a beach, the waves were coming forward like the Turkish people did.

Making ANZAc biscuits

Making ANZAC biscuits
Today Room 9 made ANZAC biscuits. The night before our teacher went to the supermarket and bought some ingredients. We were separated into 4 groups and were given jobs to do. Before we started cooking we had to wash our hands so that germs won’t get into the mixture. Our jobs were Measuring, Mixing dry ingredients, Mixing wet ingredients, Washing the trays, scooping the mixture onto the tray and taking photos. First we measured in the dried ingredients which were ½ cup flour, ½ cup sugar ( brown sugar),
¾ cup of rolled oats and ¾ desiccated coconut. The smell of the coconut smelled delightful and made me hungry. Jasmine ( the dry ingredients mixer ) mixed the dry ingredients until it was all combined. As we were mixing we could see the other groups getting on to with their ingredients.
Inotia and I mixed the wet ingredients which were 1 tablespoon of golden syrup and 100 grams of butter ( melted ).  We had to mix the golden syrup and butter in a separate bowl then added the wet mixture to the dry. We all  had turns mixing while Nazella, our photographer was taking photos of our group cooking. Our tray greaser, Irys greased a tray with the leftover butter we used. Inotia and I helped out with the scooping. We made 16 biscuits so that everyone in our group got 2 biscuits each. We used different sizes of spoons to get a good shape. Other groups got creative a used different shapes rather than just round biscuits. We heated the oven to 180 degrees celsius and placed the tray of biscuits into the oven to bake for 15 minutes. During Kiwi Can we let the biscuits cool down so they won’t fall apart when we cut into them. Mr Wong cut up the big biscuits and put sixteen biscuits on each plate. We all got a paper towel and got biscuits from our plate. We got on with our work as we ate. The biscuit was very crispy on the outside and soft in the middle. I could really taste the coconut and the sugar. I enjoyed making and eating ANZAC biscuits.
