Nga Tae

 We started by singing the colours song on our blog
 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oLu-PEA42FQ&feature=youtu.be
Then in buddy time we shared the big book T-shirts. We thought we could use this book as inspiration for our learning so we made collage T-shirts. Rosie taught us how to say “This is my blue T-shirt” in Te Reo.

Success Criteria
ü  For the collage:
o   Small pieces of paper, the same colour
o   The white paper is all covered
o   Flappy edges glued down
ü  We know at least 4 colours in Te Reo
ü  We can say the colours correctly 

How I am going

I helped create the t-shirt collage

Reflection

I really like: making the t-shirts because you get it create it.

I think I need to practice: learning the Maori words.

Something that really helped me was: when we sang the colours song.

I am a scientist

We have been learning to think like scientists this term. Learning all about plants has helped us to become scientists. We have been asking lots of questions and trying to answer them. We found out that plants breathe and drink water. We found the best way to germinate a seed – seeds need water to germinate but the plant needs water, soil and sun to grow well.
WALT: investigate
         Ask questions
         Make predictions (think about what is going to happen)
         Observe and record what happens    
Use what we have observed to make conclusions
WALT share our ideas

Task
Show my science learning using play dough, drawing and labelling what we can see, classifying the plants and completing the plant life cycle activity.

Success Criteria:
I can ask questions
I think about what might happen
I look closely (observe)
I share my ideas

How I am going

Reflection

I really like: learning how to classify plants.

I think I need to practice: drawing the pictures of the plants with more detail.

Something that really helped me was: when Kerri showed us all the parts of the plants like the leaves, stems, flowers and seeds.

Sasha's best reading.

WALT: make predictions about what I read

Task
Create a ‘movenote’ or a show me on the ipad to share your learning. Take a photo of the book you are reading and record your predicitons about the story. Then record yourself reading a page or 2. Were your predicitons correct? Did you have to change them as you read?
Remember to show your learning, check the success criteria… Have you reached your goal?

Success Criteria:
  • I use the title, the blurb and the pictures to make predications.
  • I use what I have already read to make predications.
  • I have included a picture of the book I am reading.
  • I read in a clear voice.

Reflection

I really like: having a guess at what the story might be about.

I think I need to practice: using what I have already read to make a guess about what comes next.

Something that really helped me was: seeing what happens in the first bit of the story because it helps me have a guess at what comes next.

Sasha shows excellent a

We are learning all about Panekiretanga (excellence) as our value this term. We can show excellence in our learning and in our play. We can show excellence at school and at home... we can show excellence anywhere!

We think excellence is:
  • Giving it your your best shot and never giving up
  • If you don’t succeed, try and try again
  • Keep on practising
  • Do some thinking, then ask for help when you don’t know what to do
  • We all have our own excellence, and it can be different for different things
  • We need to encourage others – we show excellence in the way we talk.
  • We use our manners and share, including other people in our games – we show excellence in our play
WALT: show Panekiretanga (excellence) in our learning. 

Task
Show excellence in the classroom:



  1. Using the discovery equipment explore, experiment and try something new. 
  2. We love to try all the discovery activities and work
    together to play collaboratively.
  3. During buddy time work as a team to complete the T-shirt collage with no gaps, thumb size pieces of paper.
    High 5 and Ci7cus learning together
  4. Use your i-time card and follow during maths. Give every activity your best shot and don't give up!
We practise our learning with the teacher and by ourselves.
We never give up!
Remember to show excellence by encouraging and including others and trying your very best.

Success Criteria:
  • I tried my very best
  • I kept on practising even when it was tricky
  • I encouraged others (excellence in my talk)
  • I used my manners, shared and I included other people in my games (excellence in my play)
