We are learning to ...
- play the chime bars to go up and down the scale 
- explore the differences between high and low sounds and soft and loud sounds 
- sing songs in time with the music. 
We know when we have done this when...

  • we can play up the scale, and down the scale in time to the song
  • we can keep in time with the music
  • we can say whether the sounds are high or low
  • we can play loudly or softly
  • we can sing in time with the music

A Place that is important to me in Christchurch..
The airport because my dad works there. And also

Term 2 Reading 2014

I am learning to talk about the characters, setting and plot of the stories I read with my group.
I am also learning to read a little faster so that it sounds like talking.

Teacher: What is one thing that you like about reading?

Harry: We get to read lots of different stories.


My drawing of still life at the workshop by Mr Shaskey.

We are learning to ...
  • plan a drawing using the elements of line, tone, texture, colour, form, shape, and space
  • use the techniques of sketching, using the correct brush strokes, colour mixing, texturing, and applying a black border.
  • communicate and interpret my idea of a kowhaiwhai pattern.

Student comment: I liked doing the korus because I practised them at home and they look cool.
