Jo May

I’ve heard the name Jo May from somewhere, But I can’t remember where from! Oh thats right she is an New Zealand Artist is Waipu near Whangarei in Northland. Jo mays originals are painted with pure white silk and she has been painting on silk now since 2000. Jo May loves painting and she is a really famous artist.

Jo May carefully does a design and then starts painting it, But she makes sure that her pictures are nicely detailed first. Most or the pictures that she draws mean something to her which is pretty amazing. Because when I paint my pictures don’t really mean anything to me but now I have meaning for my pictures.

My class has researched Jo May and now we are having a go at trying to paint like her. I have designed a picture from her painting and now I have to do my final touch. I really love doing Jo May painting and learning facts about her. One day I hope I become at artist at painting.

In these pictures you can see that Jo May has contrasting colours and colours that stand out. Jo May has used cool colours and a bit or cold colours in these pictures. She mainly paints her pictures with her hands but she didn’t use her hands for these one’s.  She uses squiggly lines and some straight lines. Also the most colours she use are blue, red and gold kind of.

Alex Lee only wants to use the bathroom but the doorway is glowing, It's rumbling inside and there's smoke all down the hall.

He was in the boys bathroom minding his own business when he smelled it.
He sniffed.
He made a face.
It was disgusting. Terrible. A nose bomb. It was the worst smell Alex Lee had ever smelled. Worse than the bottom of a locker at the end of the yer.Worse than anything he had ever smelled in or out of the bathroom.
Alex sniffed again. What did it smell like?

Rip Current

Swimming alone in a rip current with no adult is a bad idea. Why? Well because if you get taken out by rips then you might not know what to do. Keep reading and you will find out what some important information about what rips is, also what to do when you are caught in a rip.

If your wondering on how to avoid a rip then here's some information for you. To avoid a rip, you should be swimming between the red and yellow flags because it is the safest area to swim. If you have no adult then stay out of the ocean.

If a line or foam /seaweed or debris is moving towards seaward then it’s a sign that's telling you that there's a rip. Also in the ocean there will be a area that will have a notable colour in the water. You will see that there’s a break in the incoming wave pattern.

If you get caught into a rip the first thing you would think of is to try and stand up, If you can’t stand you put your hand up high and reach for the sun until something see’s your in trouble. But if you're at a beach with no lifeguards anywhere around then you should at least lay on your back and float like a starfish until you are taken out of the rip.

The best thing is to make sure you swim between the red and yellow flags and  if you're in doubt stay out. Don’t ever get into water until your parents are watching you and making sure you’re safe. Make sure you swim between the flags and DON’T EVER GO TO THE BEACH WITHOUT AN ADULT.
