Writing Report

I am learning to write an information report.


I'll know I can do this when I can plan and write an information reports with a title, topic sentence, and a group of facts about a subject.

Something I found hard was my spelling because I had a lot of spelling mistakes.

Taiao

In Taiao I have been learning about chickens. I have learned about the parts of a chicken, some facts about chickens, the parts of an egg (which I used to make an omelette), and what a chicken needs to be happy and healthy.

Something I learned was that there are other country's that eat different  parts of chickens.

Music


In music with Mr McCullum I have been learning to play the ukulele.

I'll know I've been successful when I hold the ukulele correctly and can strum the cords.

Something I learned was the song smoke.

Learner Qualities

I am learning how to empathise

I'll know I can do this when I can identify a variety of ways I can show empathy to others.

I will empathise by helping others in need.

Reading Pangaro

I am learning to apply our prior knowledge to a text.

I'll know I can do this when I can think of ways I have connections to a text and I can use those connections to help decode unfamiliar words and ideas.

Something I enjoyed was finishing my can do's and my must do's.


Art Don Binney

I am learning to create art inspired by Don Binney. I'll know I can do this when I have created a landscape with a foreground, middle, and background.

My bird and my background are coloured using pastels and natural colours.

Something I learnt was the birds because some of them have interesting facts.

Maths Tapawha Hangai

I am learning to solve addition and subtraction problems by exchanging ones for tens, and tens for hundreds.

I'll know I can do this when I can use column adding to solve problems.


Something I enjoyed was my divides.

Creative Writing - Scripts

We are learning to write scripts to create a play.

We know we are successful if our script has:
- multiple characters
- a setting
- character speech
- stage direction (in a different colour to the speech)

Once we have written our scripts we are creating the plays using Puppet Pals.


My play is called "The Princess and Prince's Journey"


Peace Week 2017

I have been learning about Peace Week.
Peace Week is an annual tradition organised by The Peace Foundation every year. You can learn more about The Peace Foundation by following this LINK.

As a way to learn about Peace Week I did three different Peace Week activities.

With Miss Brennan we created a poster to help promote peace and Peace Week.
With Mrs Baker we made hand print doves and wrote messages of peace on them.
With Mr Horn we looked at the symbols of peace such as the dove and created origami doves.

Here is an example of one of my activities
