Swimming

For two weeks our class had swimming lessons. Something I learn't was how to dive from a standing up position. Something that was challenging was taking a baggy top off without touching the bottom of the pool. Something I was proud of was learning how to dive.

WALT describe ideas about school design.
The school idea I am presenting is a silence room.
I am presenting this by making a model.
I think the school should use this idea because it would be helpful if you wanted to work in silence.

Reading the BFG

I would use the word brave to describe Sophie. I think Roald Dahl wrote this story because people would like to read it.

CARE Values

I know how to show the CARE values in the classroom. I think we have the CARE values at Oaklands School because people need to be able to work with out some one distracting them. I think the most important classroom value is use your time wisely.

BFG review


The BFG
Author Roald Dahl 
My favourite part of the book is when they go to Queen and capture the mean giants.
My Favourite character in BFG was Sophie because she gets to do some really cool things.
I think Roald Dahl wrote this book because it is exciting and funny.

Strand maths

We have learnt how to measure different objects. Three  units of measurement I know about are metres and grams and kilometres.

visual art

Last week I created a collage showing the ocean and the rocky sea shore habitat. 
The three animals I chose were yellow eyed penguin, bottle nose dolphin and a seal.
The feature I am most proud of is the bottle nose dolphin because it pops out from the poster.

My writing goal


My writing goal is to put paragraphs in my writing. Something I will do to achieve this is ask the teacher where to put the paragraphs in my writing and think about where a new ideas begins.




Reading - Our Class Novel

As a class we read the novel Best Mate by Michael Morpurgo.
The best thing about this book was when patrick jumped into the canal to save Best Mate and the other dogs.
A question I have for the Author is why are your books about animals.
I am feeling great and excited about reading the BFG.

INSTRUCTIONAL WRITING

The features of instructional writing

  1. Title
  2. Equipment
  3. Instructions
  4. Picture diagram
  In my instructional writing I found out that you need to make your writing  really clear for people to
  under stand it.
  Next time I need to remember to put my name on  published writing.

FREE WRITING

Free writing is where we get our note books and write about what ever we want to. I had been writing an adventure story but I have finished  it now. Now I am writing about what I did in the weekend.                                                                                                                                                                                          This is part of what I wrote.
In the weekend I went to starfish for my swimming lesson. Then we went to Burger king because Zach had got player of the day for touch and it was for a free burger from Burger king. I got a kids meal so did Zach and Sammy...

MY REFLECTION

I thought that the game in assembly looked really fun but hard.

CARE GOAL
