Common And Proper Nouns

Last week in Te Ngahere we were learning what the difference is between a Common and a Proper noun, so we could know when to use them in our informational report. We then had to make a google drawing, on one side we had to put Common nouns and on the other we put Proper nouns. We were allowed buddies so Cheyenne and I paired up.WALT know how to use common and Proper nouns in our writing.

Math Goals

Last week, in Te Ngahere we had to choose three maths goals from the math IKAN sheet. that we needed to learn,  ( WALT: Identify what we have achieved in maths and our next learning steps. ) We had to add these to our term 3 learning goals, we then made our goals red and if our goals were checked and if they were green we got to create a google drawing. On this google drawing we put our chosen math goals, for my maths goals I had to add an equation for subtraction, division and multiplication. Finally we got to decorate our google drawing however we would like, ( it had to have school related things though).

Here are my maths goals.

Koru And Kowhaiwhai

Last term Te Ngahere and Te Maunga created Koru and Kowhaiwhai patterns. We were learning to draw Koru and Kowhaiwhai patterns. We started on paper and used crayon to make a Koru pattern. After you had drew a Koru pattern with crayon, you got to get a piece of paper and with a pencil on your paper you had to draw Koru and Kowhaiwhai patterns. After that you got a smaller paper and you had to lightly draw your family Koru and Kowhaiwhai version. After this you showed the teacher and she would allow you to paint it, we waited overnight for the paint to dry then outlined it all with vivad. Here is my art!!!

Student Led Conferences

On Wednesday Te Ngahere ( my class, ) had SLC (  Student Led Conferences. )  We had to create a google drawing and link evidence to our reading, writing, maths, inquiry and art. We linked these so that we could show our parents what we have been doing and learning. I  liked this because us ( the students ) actually got to present our learning to our parents. I am pretty sure my mum enjoyed this aswell because we got to talk to each other about my learning.

Here is the drawing I presented to my mum.

Last week on Friday we had Maromaku. Some kids from Paihia School attended this fun event and played either rugby or netball to represent our school. I attended this event and played rugby. Some people bought money because there was a sausage sizzle and many other yummy foods that you could buy. This was a very fun and action packed event.
