Heading to Te Oro!

On Thursday last week my class and I want to Te Oro in Glen Innes to check out everybody’s art work. I went there with my Mum and Dad because I live near to Te Oro. My Mum and Dad stayed with me for a few minutes and checked out a class who was singing and playing with sticks. After watching the performance my Mum and I went to check out our Polluted sea class we worked on with EWC 3 and saw a lot of rubbish my class and edgewater 3  had collected from home and our  class made the Blow fishes, eels and our turtle! I smiled when i saw the polluted room and even saw some bean bags from our classroom. I then said goodbye to my Mum because my Mum and Dad had to go back home.  I painted Volcano’s and helped create a Volcano art sculpture with some of my classmate. We then went to another room to made bags with Shelley and it was fun making bags with my classmate. I went to my favourite room which was the ICT room with Matthew, Thiha and Kaine and made music. I had so much fun but then I had to get find the rest of my class and my Mum and Dad because they were leaving. While going back to them I saw Julia artwork which was a very beautiful Mountain and then went to my Mum and Dad. I said goodbye to my class as I ran with my Mum and Dad to their van because it started raining and went back home.

Turning bush into Butter

This photo is an Informal photograph taken at Winiata near Taihape. It was also taken when new technology made it easier to photograph what went on in the world outside the studio. I can see one cat, two dogs and two cows in this photograph. Mum and dad are milking the house cows. The family nationality is Maori. This photo was taken by  Edward George Child. You had to burn down native bush if you wanted to get rid of it for farming. It was  hard work that went into making and running a farm but it also had a negative impact on our forests. Gone forever. The photographer show part of a forest which is still alive  and a lot of burnt trees in the background. The good and the bad.
