Creative Writing - Script

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 "The Epic Handball Game"

I am learning to write an information report.

I'll know I can do this when I can plan and write an information reports with a title, topic sentence, and a group of facts about a subject.

Next time I will try and write more sentences in each paragraph.

Something I learned was to learn new words

Maths Tapawha Hangai

I am learning to solve addition and subtraction problems by exchanging ones for tens, and tens for hundreds (decompoosition), leading to a written algorithm.

Something I found hard was solving questions with big numbers.

Art Attack: Don Binney

I am learning to create art inspired by Don Binney.

I'll know I can do this when I have created a landscape with a foreground, middle, and background.

My bird and my background are coloured using pastels and natural colours.

Next time I will cover the white spaces more.

Learner Qualities

I am learning how to empathise.

I'll know I can do this when I can identify a variety of ways I can show empathy to others.                       
One way I showed empathy was by helping people.

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
