Underwater Art

Underwater art:
This is our art that we did with Lynley
First we got a white piece of paper, got 2 colours, and painted one half one colour and the other half another. Then we painted patterns on both sides. After that we found a water animal to trace on to our colourful paper I chose a turtle, then we cut out our animal and glue it onto an black price of paper and put some effects on them. On the background we put on, bubbles, seaweed, the top of the sea and maybe some effects in the bubbles. Here is my piece of art.

Writing sample

I'm Ouch! That hurt me I think I broke a bone. Not again, always getting hit, thrown and bitten by dogs!!! Such a hard life for me, I just hate it.


People think I'm gross, and they think I'm a toy!!! But I'm just a skeleton! Some people even think I'm interesting and take me back to their labs and examine me with a magnifying glass, but I still think it is not fun at all.


I hate being a skeleton just living on a clump of sand. It's like being your dog's  chew toy but living on the sand. I'm always getting washed up by the beach I've come from many different animals. Like Deer, Fish, Horses, Dolphins and Crocodiles. People don't you get it. I'm just a skeleton!!!


Can you please just treat me how you would treat a human, like being cared for or getting treated properly and not getting called gross. That's all I want to be treated like. All I want is to have a proper house to live in just for me!!! Just my on little house. What if you were me what would you feel like?
