Tapa Cloth During

                                     What did we do for art ?
For art we drew a Tapa cloth to create the patterns of Tonga, we used our imaginary mind to thing what we might do. For my art I dured a big flower in the middle and small flowers in the four corners. Also I did patterns in the outsides of the flower and the outsides of the paper. I used a black pencil to darken the flowers and the out lines so that it can stand out , I also shaded the flowers in so that you could see the darkness more. 
Why did we have to draw a tapa cloth ? 
The reason why we had to draw a tapa cloth because it was Tongan week.

Milk Day

Thursday 1st June 2017 is a special day,which is milk day. Milk is from cows. Milk is good for kids so that our bones can stay healthy and we can grow taller. Milk is good for our health and good for our bodies. Schools should be grateful when they have milk so I think milk is great. I feel lucky about the free milk given out to us. Milk energises us after playing.
