Our trip to the art gallery.

Have you ever seen sculptures, furniture and art?
Well the year fives from Pt England school had a chance to visit the Ackland art gallery.  
When we reached the art gallery we had some wonderful people waiting for us. Then they  introduce themselves and told us there names, it was Charlotte, Linda and Mandy. When the clock stricted to ten  the doors opened wide.

Afterwards we started exploring. The first room we went to was called the victorian art.  Inside the victorian art Linda informed  us what we had to do. We had to admire a picture called the The Fortune Teller and explain what was happening in the picture. After that we had to draw what happens next. My story was that when the girl is about to get married there was this form that slips out of the man's pocket and when she reads it she finds out the truth and then it was of with his head.

Soon after we visited another room.  So then we admired another art it had a lot of colors. Linda explained us what we had to do. She said that each colour represents something so we had to find out what it represents. She also gave us some clues for example she gently tapped the ground with her fingers  and then we had to found out what the sound sounded like.  

Later that time we went outside for morning tea. Morning tea was great but the awful part was that we had to walk on so much stairs it was  terrifying!  After we finished our lunch we had nothing to play on suddenly we had some kids from class ten and nine using the stairs as slides it was awesome.

Later the parent helpers got their chance to take us exploring the art gallery.  The first room we went to was the lego room. We made so much crafts and we also got to go to the learning center that is where we got to play with the toys. Maybe next time  you might get a chance to go to the art gallery. If you do I hope you have fun exploring art.

Birds can fly. They fly high. Some fly miles across the sky. In the spring birds build nests. Not to rest in.
They build nests for their eggs, for thier young. Some birds bring twigs and leaves, bits of string. What a neast!

Day and night mother bird and father bird watch there eggs. They keep them safe and warm. Soon chip chip the eggs crack. And out slip babby birds. They have no feathers. They can not fly. But they are hungry. They can eat. Oh my what do the baibies eat? Worm and grubs, beetles and bugs and tiny insect eggs. They can eat ever so much- caterrpillars, grasshoppers, ants and flies and such. Soon the young birds grow feathers. They have lessons to learn.They must learn to mind mothers,and find their food.Some take a turn at learning to swim. And most birds learn to fly.Some birds fly far. Some fly so far we cannot see how they find their way. For they fly hundreds of miles through pathless sky. Some birds catch their food as they fly. They snap up moths and other insects going by. They have beaks that can snap shut fast. Many birds like grain and seeds. They have short,sharp for pecking. They crack seeds open or swallow foods whole. Fruits and berries are the foods some birds need. They swallow the berries. Then they  scateer the seeds.
