Reflection on our Exibition

On Thursday the 26th of October, we had our Exhibition. Our group’s central idea was that “Creative artists convey personal messages of peace and conflict”.

When I looked at an artwork or dance before I used to not really think about what it means. But now I look deeper to find the meaning that it holds.

Some highlights of this experience was that we became closer to a lot of people, and made some new friends. And Finally, I learnt heaps but not just from researching myself but from other groups too.

We had a great time and I think this was a worthwhile experience.

DIY soap

During the I have been experimenting on my own unique soap designs. This is a really fun activity to do at home or with friends. It’s also a great gift for your friends or family. And the best thing about it is that you can design it however you like and be as creative as you like.

Ingredients and supplies

  • Soap base (clear or not)
  • Soap colouring or food colouring (optional)
  • Sent (optional)
  • Glitter (optional)
  • Cup (microwave safe)
  • Microwave
  • Flower petals (optional)
  • Soap mold (or any container that is the shape you want)

One of the things I love about making soap is that you can make up your own unique design. I listed a few that you could do like glitter, soap colouring or flower petals, but the choices are endless! These are a few designs I did.

Sunset

This was my first soap that I have ever made. I actually forgot to add the scent.

How I did it:

  1. Heated the soap base in a cup, in the microwave.
  2. Then I poured the heated soap base into my mould.
  3. I Added red colouring and wait for it to fully dry.
  4. Then I added orange and wait for it to fully dry.
  5. Finally I added the yellow and waited for that to dry.
  6. After the soap had fully dried Take the soap out of the mould.
  7. I finished

Rainbow cake

This was my second soap that I made.

  1. Heated the soap base in a cup, in the microwave.
  2. Then I poured the heated soap base into my mould.
  3. I Added red colouring and wait for it to fully dry.
  4. Then I added orange and wait for it to fully dry.
  5. Finally I added the yellow and waited for that to dry.
  6. Finally I added the green and waited for that to dry.
  7. Finally I added the blue and waited for that to dry.
  8. Finally I added the purple and waited for that to dry.
  9. After the soap had fully dried Take the soap out of the mould.
  10. I finished

    This was super fun to make and I hope some of you will try it. What is your favourite soap I have made so far?

     

💖DIY bath bombs💖

 

Week 4

During the week I have been making bath bombs. The company that invented bath bombs are lush. Lush’s bath bombs are around nine dollars, but mine don’t cost much at all. I have been investigating and this is what I thought was the cheapest, easiest and best recipe.

 

Ingredients and Supplies:

  • 1 cup baking soda
  • 1/2 cup citric acid
  • 1/2 cup Epsom salts
  • 1 tsp. water
  • 2 tsp. essential oil
  • 3 tsp. oil (olive oil)
  • food coloring (any color you want)
  • bowl
  • whisk
  • jar
  • bath bomb mold

Steps

  1. Place all the dry ingredients and mix
  2. In a jar mix all the wet ingredients
  3. Then slowly pour the wet ingredient into the dry bowl

Tip:

Only put a drop of the wet ingredients in at a time and straight after quickly mix them. Because the dry ingredients react with liquid cause it to fizz. So if you want you bath bomb to fizz when you are actually in the bath.

So overall this DIY bath bomb recipe was really good but sometimes the bath bomb does crumble but it works really well.!

Passion Project Week 3

 

Week 3: Equipment/Resources

This week I have been researching the cheapest and best ways to make the product. So for this some of the ingredients I already have at home, For example, Cooking oil, Food colouring, Water, Salt, Sugar and a few more. Some of the ingredients I will have to buy like Soap Base, Citric acid, Beeswax and a bath bomb mould. But you need these things to make the products.

My sparkling City

 

In art we have been painting an artwork inspired by Rob Dunlavey. Some of Rob Dunlavey artworks are of cities so that what inspired us to do city ark works but the other reason is,

that the book that we have been ready in class includes a sparkling imaginary city. ” In my mind I see another city. The buildings are tall and sort of sparkle. I know it’s just my imagination, but it feels real. I think it is real.”

 

In my artwork I have made the buildings sparkle. The buildings are quite tall and it is night time.

This is my artwork.

 

Passion Project

Passion Project

This term year six are doing a Passion Project which we have to pick a topic that we are passionate about but never really experienced. For example say i really loved knitting but you have never knitted a blanket before. You could knit and design a blanket, but you would do other thing too during the seven weeks.

 

For my project I have chosen to make cheap bath and body products such as, bath bombs,lip balm and scrub, bath salts and shower scrubs. I am also going to be looking at why bath bombs fizz. I am going to try and find the cheapest and best recipes. I am really looking forward to the project.

My School Term

 

This term was the start of 2017 and we are in year 6 now. And this year we had eight new girls that are really nice.

Some of the highlights for this term were:

  • Camp
  • P.E
  • Leedership
  • Speeches
  • Novel Studies
  • Maths

And much more, but one of my favorite highlights were camp. I loved camp and I’d really like to do it again. My favorite part of camp was snorkeling because Sisi and I were partners and sisi is a great swimmer so she was just dragging me along. We also saw lots of sea life like stingrays, seahorses, crabs and a lot of fish. At the end of snorkeling we all jumped of the wharf except one person, but overall camp was really fun.  

Overall this term was excellent and I hope yours was too!

Woman of the future…

 

I am a child…

Of three children

The smile of my mum

The creative taste of my Parents

The sense of humor like my dad

 

I am all I see…

Teammates shooting goals

Loving friends helping each other

Classmates working hard

Annoying siblings attacking each other

Handballs bouncing from one square to the other

Girls leaping in dance class

 

I am all I hear…

The sound of my energetic dogs roaring like maniacs

Waves crashing into shore

Leaves of trees dancing in the wind

“Daisy” don’t fight with your siblings

 

And all I remember…

Being awarded at nationals for sport,

Driving a motorbike for the first time

First time eating waffles

First day of primary school

 

I am all I’ve been taught…

Treat people how you want to be treated

Give it your all

Believe in yourself

Always be kind

Blabber Mouth

Blabber Mouth is about a girl called Rowena who can’t speak.

screen-shot-2016-11-28-at-6-46-52-am

Two hours ago, when I walked into this school for the first time, the sun was shining, the birds were singing and, apart from a knot in my guts the size of Tasmania, life was great.

Now here I am, locked in a stationery cupboard.

Rowena wants to be friends but the other kids don’t.

Blabber Mouth is a great book and I hope you enjoy reading it.
