In music with Mr McCullum I have been learning to play the ukulele.
I'll know I've been successful when I hold the ukulele correctly and can strum the cords.

Some thing I found hard was trying to fit my fingers on the cords.

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 "Mr Horn is Handsome"

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 Conference

My highlight at my student led conference was showing my statistics poster because I had my bar graph and picture graph.

I am most proud of sharing my maths questions I got from the teacher because it was challenging.

I think my parents enjoyed race around the clock because we had to race fast to see who wins.

Next time I would like to share everything because I ran out of time.

WALHT add a twist to our writing
Here is my poem:

I didn't go to Colombia because I don't know where it is.
I did't go  to the pool because it was cold.
I didn't zoom a million miles.
But i did go fishing at the Groynes.

I didn't eat poisonous berry.
I didn't eat chocolate.
I didn't eat lemons.
But i did eat salmon.

I didn't see Sponge Bob.
I didn't see a submarine
I didn't see a million dollars
But I did see a trout.

Next time I would like to make my second 2 verses more fun by adding more detail.
