Procedural writing

WALHT: write a procedure.

Something I learned about  writing a procedure is you need to write instructions about what you are making.

Something I would like to do better is to add more detailed verbs in my procedural writing.

Here is my writing:

Jelly Pops

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






Student Led Conference

My highlight at my Student Led Conference was sharing my statistical poster because we got to draw what our poster was about.

I am most proud of sharing my tiki because it was beautiful and strong looking and it had awesome colours because the colours were warm colours.

I think my parents enjoyed everything because they love hearing me share about my learning.

Next time I would like to share more of my reading.




Reading

My learning goal this term is order and sequence the ideas in a text and understand correct grammatical features in a text.

I can do this by putting the ideas in the right order.

This photo shows my learning.

Dance

This week we did a dance program and we learnt two amazing new dances called salsa and hip hop, our teacher was Dean.

I enjoyed learning the moves to hip hop and salsa but my favourite was hip hop.

I learned that in salsa you have to hold hands with a boy.

Statistics

WALHT Interpret data and record our findings.
Something I learned was to record data you need to look in the book and then
write the data down on paper.
Here is a photo of my learning.
My next step is to look in different places for data.

Writing

WALHT add a twist to our writing.
Here is my poem:

I didn't see a Pegasus
I didn't see a tiger
I didn't see snow
BUT I did see my new puppy

I didn't eat a mountain
I didn't eat a river of pasta
I didn't eat 1000 ants
BUT I did eat nachos

I didn't go to china
I didn't go to a zoo
I didn't go to a castle
BUT I did go to get my puppy Winta.

Next time I would like to put more detail into my writing.


Punchy Poetry

I have been learning to create an example of onomatopoeia.
This is my example:
pop
fizz
wham
whack
Next time I would like to get more onomatopoeia ideas.

Taiao Programme

I have been learning to be safe around the kitchen.
We made apple crumble, it was delicious.
I learned the recipe to apple crumble and how to be safe around sharp knives.
A question I have is how long did you cook the apple crumble for?
