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

Term 2 Reading 2014

I am learning to read silently, clarify unfamiliar words or phrases, question others about the story, summarise the text in my own words and find the important information in what I read and to reflect upon what I read.

Mrs Small: What do you like best about reading?

Teri: I can really get a picture in my mind and all the books we read are really good.

My place in Christchurch

A Place that is important to me in Christchurch..
The Botanic Gardens because of the fountains and I used to be able to go paddling in it.


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 am proud of my art work because I think it looks really good. I used korus, mountains and the sea in my design.
