My writing

                                                                My family

The important thing about my family is that they are my family and I love them. They work hard to get food and water. They keep me and my sister safe. They get the money for the device's and the house , cars, school, heater's and more. but the important thing about my family is that they are my family and I love them.

WALT: communicate a message.

Description: We have been participating in 3 different workshops around colour, compositions and fonts.  We put these skills to use in a poster sharing our knowledge about Te Reo Maori.

Why? We have noticed that our posters are too cluttered and do not communicate a  message well.

Task: Make a poster about Te Reo Maori.


Message: My message is clear and purposeful.  Everything that is on my poster relates to my message. 

Composition:  My poster is balanced. 

Font:  My font is clear, readable and suits the message.

Colour:  I have used 2-3 colours that are complementary.  My background choice makes the text pop!

Accuracy:  All of the words on my poster are spelt correctly.


What are you most proud of and why? 

The colour because suits the words.

What challenged you the most and why?

Time limit because I was trying to think what I should put on it.

Next time, what is a goal you can work towards?

Going faster and working on it more.


I think you could improve on making the colours where the poster is a little bit different to each other.

But I liked how you had it very neat in one page so you didn't have to look everywhere to read it.
