Reflection, Translation and Rotation Artwork

- represent and describe the results of reflection, rotation, and translation on shapes or patterns;

Our Learning Journey

We learnt the meaning of reflection, translation and rotation. Then used different shapes to demonstrate our understanding of the language. Next we made a small artwork to show our understanding.

After that we looked at different Siapo patterns and discussed the different features represented in them. We observed a variety of different cultural artworks. Then we had to draft  our  own possible patterns and shapes to represent our culture. 

Finally we made our own artwork.
