By Reece Cottam
I like it because it is shaped like arches and I like the roman numbers because they look really fancy. i don’t like it because the candles are opposite to each other.
By Finley Lawson
I like it because it is a game and it’s old and I like old things. It has roman numbers and it also looks fancy.
By Judah Hicks
I like it because it is not simple. I don’t like it because it is hard to play. I also like it because the numbers are all different from English numbers and they are roman numbers.
By Leo Grundy
I don’t like it because it has candles. I do like it because it has roman numbers but they are silly.
By Zoe Dempsey
I like this object because it is interesting. I like it because it is something that you don’t use now. I didn’t like this because I can’t read the numbers. I didn’t like it because it is too hard to play. It was made in the 1700’s. It was made after the romans but it still has roman numbers. I also liked it because the roman numbers are fancy.

This painting is a bold colours painting with red and black, blue and cream. The marks represent a person. An adventurous painting looking like a explorer swinging from branch to branch in a sunset. I like this painting because its fearful and cool with the moves. I don’t like this painting because its got red in. I disagree with it existing in the painting. I don’t like the painting at all mostly at all.
