Term 2 Reflection

This term has been a good term. It will be the last ever term 2 I will have as a year 8. This term our topic has been art alive and all this term we have been painting and doing artwork. I liked hanging around with my friends in my class and other classes as well.

When I leave this Intermediate for college I will be both happy and sad because most of my friends will be going to other schools. This term I liked the topic because I like drawing. I liked this term and I think that next term will be if not the same then better.

My Special Place

My special place is my dads truck because it has taken me all around the north island of new zealand and I like riding in it. Another reason why I like the truck is because I like looking out the window at the view as we ride past the mountains and sites like the big L&P bottle in paeroa and the big dog shed in Tirau. Thats just another reason why the truck is my special place but one more reason is that whenever i'm hungry I can just ask my dad to pull over and get something to eat and whenever I ask my attempt is usually successful.

The artist that I have decided to paint my artwork in is Henri matisse. The reason I choose to do my painting in the style of matisse is because I like the style of fauvism. Fauvism uses bright bold colours and I liked that idea so I chose it. The colours red, blue and green usually come into Henri matisse artwork and when I saw his paintings I wanted to copy or try to copy in that style. Originally I was going to paint my work in the style of Claude Monet but once I actually started painting, my use of mostly bright colours made me change to Henri Matisse.

The Tesseract

The year was 5012. In a town called Vissurge lived a man who hid with a sniper rifle, killing anyone who came into sight. No one knew where or why this man hid. Afraid of being killed, all the citizens ran and got out of Vissurge. His aim like every other villain. To get within reach and eventually take hold of the most powerful weapon imaginable. The Tesseract.

The army was called in to hunt down this man but no one could find him. Then suddenly the ground started shaking and every building in the city fell to the ground. The mysterious sniper man was killed. A new enemy to the public armed with only a powerful Sledge hammer came to his world from outer space in search of the Tesseract. The only thing keeping his world from being destroyed. His leader demanded that the Tesseract had to be returned at once, but after a couple of months it didn't show. That’s why he sent down his strongest and mightiest warrior “Thor”. He searched high and low, day after day, with no luck. Then suddenly a strike of hope. A blue laser shot up into the sky. Thor knew straight away who the person was who had stuffed it up. “The only reason the weapon did that was because someone had used it wrong” Thor mumbled with a determined look on his face.

While jumping, leaping and sprinting towards the blue checkpoint, he was stopped 10 metres short by his own blood brother from the same world and army. Spongebob. “What are you doing!” Thor angrily shouted. “Stopping you from taking what's mine!” Spongebob said with an evil grin. Spongebob struck Thor with the Tesseract instantly killing him. Spongebob thought it was all over, so he ran. He ran continuously day and night till the point that he started flying.

The leader that no one knew his name flew down right in front of Spongebob and the Tesseract. Spongebob shot at him but he summoned a force field saying him from being struck. He jumped up and hooked Spongebob in the face knocking him down, the leader picked up the Tesseract while he could and killed Spongebob, although he thought. The Tesseract along with the leader returned to their world saving it from self destruction.

“I shall return” Spongebob said.
