Learning Terms 1 & 2

Art Attack

Today we took part in an art workshop with Neil Shaskey. 
We were learning to: sketch a portrait. 

We showed we could do this when we could:
- Draw facial features the correct shape and size.
- Position facial features correctly.
- Use shading techniques.
We really enjoyed the workshop and were proud of the art work we produced. We thought the shading was hard but we didn't give up. 





We are learning to: recall addition and subtraction facts in 3 seconds or under.
We play a game with dice. Two people roll a dice at the same time. They then have to add or subtract the numbers on the two dice. The winner gets to challenge another person in the circle.
We have noticed that we are getting faster at recalling our basic facts.
Our next step is to have a practice at home with dice or on Mathletics.


We are learning to use our knowledge of word families and blends to work out unknown words and spell words.

One game we play to help us with our reading and writing is 'Pass The Bomb'. We have cards with parts of words, word families (e.g ing) or blends (eg. bl). When the Bomb comes to you you have to say a word that has the letters on the card in it. If the Bomb goes off you have to keep the card. At the end of the game the people who don't have a card are the winner.
E.g. One card had 'bl' on it so we said words like black, blank, blast...
Our next step is to include some of the more challenging cards in the game.




CARE Values

We are learning to show the CARE value Excellence. One way we did this in Term 1 was to have a quick tidy up of the school grounds. We picked up heaps of rubbish, returned sports equipment and delivered things to lost property.
Our next step is do this by ourselves when we walk past some rubbish or sports equipment that is in the wrong place.


We are learning to play the recorder.
We can do this when we can play in time and play the correct notes.
Our next step is to practice and learn new songs.


In maths we finished our fraction ice creams.

We are learning to:
- Identify symbols for fractions.
- Say the names of fractions correctly.
- Find fractions of groups.
- Show the CARE value Excellence in our work presentation. 
Our next steps are to:
- Apply this knowledge to find fractions of larger groups of objects.
- Improve our work presentation.

We learned about ANZAC Day and wrote about some photos from the war. 

I am learning to: Write to describe.
I can do this when I can:
- Write sentences that talk about what is happening in the photo.
- Write sentences that make sense.
- Use verbs (doing words) in the right place.
- Use punctuation correctly.
- Write in detail.

I have used a dictionary. My next step is to use capitals correctly.


I am learning to: Write and Publish a poem.

I can do this when I can :

Describe myself using a range of different words including adjectives.
