Peace Week 2017

  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 tiki art because  there were lots of patterns and you had to get it just right.

I am most proud of sharing my monster soup because some of the instructions were really funny.

I think my parents enjoyed the rugby math game because they bet me and it was a fun game.

Next time I would like to be more confident about sharing my learning.

Writing

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

I didn’t But I did


I didn’t see a dinosaur
I didn’t see an alien
I didn’t see a tarantula  
But I did see a deer


I didn’t eat a turtle
I didn’t eat a human
I didn’t eat a monkey
But I did eat herrings

I didn’t try to blow up Mercury
I didn’t go to mars
I didn’t try to blow up Mount Everest
But I did go hunting


Next time I would like to come up with more interesting words.

Taiao Program

I have been learning to be safe around the kitchen.
We made apple crumble.
I learned the recipe of the apple crumble so I can make it at home.
A question I have is why did you choose apple crumble and how do you keep graters sharp?
