Hi, and welcome to another one of my posts. Today we will be discussing scientific evidence that proves where most peoples eyes are drawn to in photographs! I really do sound like a reporter, don’t I? It has been a while since I have most likely bored or entertained you, (what ever your perspective), with my blog posts. Good to have you back anyway. Back to the point! Like I said in my dramatic news report, today we will be discussing scientific evidence that proves where most humans eyes are drawn to in photographs! Although my news report may seem a little false, the rule of thirds is not! The photos below show my favourite destinations in the school ground.
The pic on the right shows my favourite place now. I mean, who doesn’t like a garden next to the playground! But if you look at the picture, what is the first thing that captures your eye? Me too! Sadly I can’t read your mind, which is just… tragic. I’d love to have a superpower! But it is scientifically proven (look at the photo on the left,) that most of the time, where the lines in the picture intersect is were the viewers eyes are! How cool. You really do learn something everyday! For example, yesterday I discovered that Donald Trumps hair is REAL!!! I mean, how much gel does he put in it?!? It looks like corn!
I hope this post has been entertaining! But for now, its time to say, see ya later alligator! Don’t forget the toilet paper! Seriously, don’t though, I can’t imagine using tissues!
Ok, when it comes to singers and songwriters, Sia has to be one of my favourites! I mean, I know she covers her face with bananas but you have to admit she has a REALLY good voice. This week we have been practicing a performance for one of Sia’s greatest songs. It’s called ‘Titanium’ and it resembles strength, courage and resilience. At the end of the week we performed Sia’s hit ‘Titanium’ to the school and the parents that joined us at assembly. Maths is one of weaknesses, so one time I was learning about how to measure the area of triangles and other shapes. I found it really difficult. My mind was exploding but I kept calm, because what’s throwing a tantrum in front of the class going to help you understand? As other people tried to explain it to me in different ways and in different words, it started to make sense. The point is that, I learnt how to measure the area of a triangle, and I didn’t give up. It was called being resilient. I found this image on the web. I think it sends out an important message.
Press this ping to view ‘Titanium’ by David Guetta and sung by Sia:
Picture story books are one of my favourite types of genres, but what if you reread your favourite picture story book and looked for the theme or the secret message the author has left for you. Today I read a book called “The Boy on the Page.” This book is about a boy who landed in a page and lived the rest of his life there. He started to wonder why he was there, and he jumped out of the page to have a look. He found himself back with his family and people and things that he cared for. The theme in this book is:
No matter what you do, it will always com back to you. If you’re mean, that is all you will get in return. If you are kind, you will get nothing but kindness back. This is called karma.
Tip about writing the theme: if it helps, start the sentence with ‘The author wants us to understand that…’
