Writing: Information Report

I am learning to write an information report.

I'll know I can do this when I can write a report with a title, classification, description, location and a group of facts.

Something I learned was that you have to use facts not just make up information.

Learner Qualities: Communicate

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. 

I communicate by using body language.

Reading Ruru

I am learning to find and keep track of information in longer texts.

I'll know I can do this when I can recall the details of previous chapters of the text.

Something I found hard was getting my work done.

Art Attack: Don Binney

I am learning to create a piece of art inspired by Don Binney.

I'll know I can do this when I have created a landscape with a foreground, middle, and backgrouniwikd.
My bird and my background are coloured using pastels and natural colours.

I will add more colours next time.


I am learning to solve addition problems by counting on or backwards in my head.

I'll know I can do this when I can solve addition and subtraction problems by counting on/back in my head in ones up to 100.

Something I learned was adding my ones and tens together.

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
