Maths Tapaono (Hexagons)

I am learning to know the symbols for improper fractions.

I'll know I can do this when I can read improper fractions and convert them to mixed numbers.

Something I learned about fractions was that you can add them together.

Reading Tora (Albatross)

I am learning to focus on reading for a set purpose (skimming & scamming).

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

Something that was challenging was trying to make my handwriting letters all look the same.

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 that was really hard was trying to fit all of the facts in the paragraphs.

Learner Qualities

I am learning how to communicate.

I'll know I can do this when I can identify a variety of ways I can communicate with others.

One way I show the communicate value is by communicating in another language like Japanese or Sign Language.

Art Attack:Don Binney

We are 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 found hard was making the brown on the bird because at one part it was dark then it was too light then it looked like a very gross brown but then it was all good.

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
