Portugal post

Ola every body

Yes we are in Portugal oh if you don’t know Ola means hello in Portuguese

Now who is Ferdinand Magellan? Well I know it sounds strange but I‚Ķ I‚Ķ I did research :(. Ferdinand was raced in Portugal in 1480 he became a really good sailor and naval officer then, he was selected by king Charles 1 of Spain to search for a westward way to the Maluku island. Commanding a fleet of five vessels he headed south through the Atlantic Ocean to Patagonia, passing through the Strait of Magellan into a body of water he named the “peaceful sea” (the modern Pacific Ocean). Despite a series of storms and mutinies, the expedition reached the Spice Islands in 1521 and returned home via the Indian Ocean to complete the first circuit of the globe. Magellan did not complete the entire voyage, as he was killed during the Battle of Mactan in the Philippines in 1521.

The Magellanic penguin is named after him, as he was the first European to note it.

For our amaze them project we need to complete a script  for our videos on You-Tube.

 

Promote our idea for a workshop with junior school.

 

Find a date to run our workshop.

 

Communicate with the junior school teachers and staff.

 

Research other drawing techniques to teach the junior school children.

Drawing tools (pencils erasers etc).

 

Plan all the steps and mini workshops we are planing to do.

 

PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE!

 

Research facts and different species of dinosaur and the ones that most appeal to younger children.

 

Before we do the workshops we need to create You-Tube drawing tutorials and see if they appeal to people and if they are popular so we can get feedback on how we should conduct our videos/workshops.

 

For our final product we as the Cretaceous Crayons would love an array of followers on our You-Tube and lots of different people learning to do things they thought they never could and the children down at junior school to find a new light on the world and so they can enjoy art because earth without art is just eh…

Week Three: Reading Log

The character from my book (The Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents) is Keith- the stupid looking kid.  Keith is a boy who is an orphan. He loves playing musical instruments but every one just thinks he is.. well just Keith! No super powers, no amazing past, just plain Keith.  Keith created an epic plan to get out of the rat catchers basement and poison the rat catcher (number 1) but I think that there is more to Keith then meets the eye.

Positive: Thinks of great plans, awesome guy, brave at times

Negative: Shy, boring, quiet

Interesting: Curious and mysterious character
