Olympic Artwork

In term three we were working on a piece for the Olympics, this piece has many different subjects like maths, writing, art and our heads on our chosen athlete.   

For the maths we did a tessellation (a tessellation is a repeated pattern that has no gaps or overlaps).  For the tessellation we used a 3.8 triangle, as you can see I made hexagons and squares out of just using that single polygon (shape).  

We also wrote the three Olympic values respect, excellence and friendship, we chose to put these on our poster because they were related to the Olympics, and without these there will be huge fights during the game.    

We did different similes (a simile is a comparison using like or as), and metaphors (a metaphor is a direct comparison not using like or as)  in the speech bubbles and thought clouds. Can you guess which one is which?

The paper we used was slightly smaller than A3, we cut off about 4cm.  We had to use specific vocabulary that you would normally hear or see in the Olympics.

I enjoyed collaborating with other people and sharing ideas.  Now this piece is laminated and hanging above Room 10’s tables
