Writing: Information 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 finding information about weta that was't to complicated.

Maths: Tapawha Hangai

I am learning to solve addition and subtraction problems by exchanging ones for tens and tens for hundreds (decomposition) leading to a written algorithm.

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


Something I found hard was learning to get it right and solve problems with a different strategy.


Learner Qualities: Empathise

I am learning how to show empathy.

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

I can show empathy by putting myself in others shoes. (e.g If someone is really mad I could stay away from them and think how they are feeling).

Reading: Putakitaki

I am learning to make connections between the text and my prior knowledge.

I'll know I can do this when I can share what I already know about a topic prior to reading and make connections throughout the text.

Something I learned was Cloze and Comprehension because I took time to think about my answers.


Art Attack: 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 learned was mixing the colours to make the sky look moody (e.g I did dark blue then white pastel over it.)

Calendar Art

This is my calendar art!
My bird is a Ruru (Morepork)

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.



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
