My ingrid Banwell art reflection

My Ingrid Banwell Art Reflection

How well did I include the elements of Ingrid Banwell’s work?
I included some plants in my border and I did a double border.

Something I really like about my art is the colours I used in the frame and in my picture and I like my traffic light

Something I would improve if I could is colour in neatly and take my time. And do not rush it otherwise it will be ugly.

My speech reflection

Tuesday 28 September

Learning intention: To write an interesting speech and present it to the class.
 How well did I do my speech?
My speech topic was interesting because the audience sat and listened to me. My voice was loud enough because everyone was quiet. I stood still and relaxed because I was not shy. The hardest part of my speech was making eye contact. I am proud of getting it over and done with. Next time I will make eye contact with the class when I do another speech.
