Reading tasks

Last week in Te Ngahere, My reading group ‘aqua’ was learning to answer inference questions. We read a book called ‘The shattering breakthrough’.
After we read the book we did a follow up task and we had to answer the questions that were on the sheet.

My Reflection

On Monday week 8 in Te Ngahere in our writing time we were learning to evidence our learning. First we went into our goal setting presentation and looked at our writing goals. We had to link our writing that had the goal we had set on our slide and if all of our goals were evidenced we had to show the teacher and if the teacher says that you are done you could finish off your other writing!

Maths goals

Last week in Te Ngahere, we got given a IKAN sheet for stage 7 and 8 in maths, the WALT was to Identify what we have achieved in maths and our next learning steps. We  had to choose 3 maths goals that we found difficult. Then we had to write our goals onto our goal setting slide. We had to make a google drawing and write our maths goals onto it and set an example on our google drawing to show how to use the goal we are learning.

Koru and Kowhaiwhai Patterns

On Term 2 Te Ngahere, Te Maunga and some students family members did some koru and kowhaiwhai art. We drew koru and kowhaiwhai patterns to represent our whanau and hang on the wall of our school Whare. Firstly, we practised on a scrap piece of paper with a crayon. Then we showed our teachers. This time, we had to draw some Koru and Kowhaiwhai patterns on a good piece of paper with a pencil. On our good piece of paper, we had to make sure our koru were the symmetrical. After our good piece of paper, we had to draw super good koru and kowhaiwhai pattern to represent our family. We used pencil first and after we showed the teacher it was good to go. Next step was to paint over and after the paint had dried, we had to outline the koru and kowhaiwhai with a vivid. We learnt how to draw koru and kowhaiwhai patterns.

My Learning

On Monday Te Ngahere created our own google drawing called My Learning (to talk about our learning). We had to show our parents what/how we were learning in all subjects including art In SLC (Student Led Conferences) on Tuesday. My mum really liked my Learning and my blog, she thought they were really cool. I really liked it at SLC! My mum also said that SLC were better than interviews!!

Visiting the Treaty Grounds

Last week on Tuesday the whole of Paihia school went to visit the Waitangi Treaty Grounds. The Junior children had to leave before us seniors and that was pretty early, They left at half past nine and the seniors left at twelve o’clock. When we got to the treaty grounds we were so tired from the long walk. We did loads of activities at the treaty grounds. There was: Planting, playing games, weaving and much more. Next time I go I would want to do those things again!
