Peace Week 2017

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  student Led conference was  my statistics  because I let my mum look at it .

I am most proud of sharing my maths because I finished  my SML.
I think my parents enjoyed it because I finished most of my learning.
Next time I would like to make things a bit better and be more descriptive about my learning and words.

 At Dance we are learning  to do salsa and hip hop.
I enjoyed salsa because you use your feet to do steps.
I learned that hip hop is a bit of a faster dance.

WALHT add a twist to our writing
Here is my poem

I didn't go to a play date because it was raining.
I didn't  zoom to the moon.
I didn't  know that I was going home.
But l did know that  I was moving house .

I didn't eat an ice block  because my mum said l can't .
I didn't eat a worm in my apple .
I didn't eat pop core because my dad ate it all .
But l did eat chips because I went to the movies .

I didn't see a horse because l went to Queens town .
I didn't see my sister up a tree .
I didn't see my friend because I was in the bath room.
But I did see the sea at the beach.

Next time I would like to make it funny.

Taiao Programme

I have been learning to be safe around the kitchen.
We made apple crumble it was  very yummy
I learned that when you go and get  a sharp thing  and  your friend wants to have  a go you put it down then they will pick it  up.
Something I would like to learn more about is how to mix faster in the kitchen.

The Writing Process

I am learning to
  • write a report
  • I will know that I am successful when I have
  • helped my audience to know a lot about something (how to keep safe in the sun).
  • Included many important topic words.

We were writing about sun safety. To help us develop our ideas we made a sun safety collage: we had to protect the stick figure from the sun. This helped us with our ideas for our writing.
