We are learning to ...
- play the chime bars to go up and down the scale 
- explore the differences between high and low sounds and soft and loud sounds 
- sing songs in time with the music. 
We know when we have done this when...

  • we can play up the scale, and down the scale in time to the song
  • we can keep in time with the music
  • we can say whether the sounds are high or low
  • we can play loudly or softly
  • we can sing in time with the music

Term 2 Reading 2014

I am learning to listen to and interact with other group members when discussing issues that arise in different text forms.

Mrs Small: What do you like best about reading?

Hannah: I like asking questions to find out more about the story. I like reading chapter books. 

My place in Christchurch

A Place that is important to me in Christchurch..
My church because my nana goes to the same one. 
Bridge of Remembrance is also important because my great grandpa died in the war.

Art Attack Term 2

My drawing of still life at the workshop by Mr Shaskey.

We are learning to ...
  • plan a drawing using the elements of line, tone, texture, colour, form, shape, and space
  • use the techniques of sketching, using the correct brush strokes, colour mixing, texturing, and applying a black border.
  • communicate and interpret my idea of a kowhaiwhai pattern.

Student comment: I like my painting because I likes where I put the colours.
