Calendar Art

This is my calendar art! My bird is a pukeko.

Learner Qualities

I am learning to empathise.

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

I can use empathy to other is including and not excluding.

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.

Next time I will have no white gaps.

Maths Tapawha

I am learning to order fractions with different denominators.

I'll know I can do this when I can explain and show the order of single fractions with different denominators from smallest to largest value.

Something I learned  was an easier way to solve problems.

Reading Toroa

I am learning to focus on reading for a set purpose( skimming and scanning). 

I'll know I can do this when I can find the key ideas and record the key ideas

Something I found hard was making full sentences with my current events.

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 "Death"

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

Student Led Confernce

My highlight at my student led conference was sharing my learning with my mum and dad.

I am most proud of sharing my math because I got to share my pyramids.

I think my parents enjoyed my tiki because my parents said, "Your tiki is really good."

Next time I would like to make a blog post to share for the student led conference.


My learning goal this term is order and sequence the ideas in a text.
I can do this by ordering the text in my reading.
This photo shows my learning.

Procedural Writing

WALHT write a procedure
Something I learned about writing a procedure is to number instructions.
Something I would like to do better is to number my steps.
Here is a photo of my learning.
