On Tuesday and Wednesday we had kauri Athletics.
A few challenges I faced were... the sprint races because I pulled a muscle but I did get in the finals, another challenge for me was the high jump and long jump.

My favourite event on the day was... the house sprints.

something I am proud of is...the house sprints and long jump.


In term 2 we did 2 dance routines, a hip hop routine and a cha cha routine. To combine different moves in the hip hop routine to treasure by Bruno Mars, and can't stop the feeling by Justin timberlake to the cha cha.

I loved it! I actually became a great dancer. the only problem was we had to dance with boys in the cha cha.

my favourite was the Hip hop routine it was really fun to dance to. I found the cha cha really challenging.

AVAILLL (reading)


In term 4, we are now doing AVAILLL instead of reading. We are still doing SML though.

Something I enjoyed is that we get to watch movies, and read subtitles at the same time. I like the activity's that we do.

I think we should still do AVAILLL because it is eduacational.

It teach's kids spelling, it teach's them reading and kids love it!

Integrated learning presentation

I have presented my narrative using story book maker online.
I worked by myself.
My narrative showed empathy by... the characters helping each other and welcoming each other.
The thing I enjoyed most about this learning was… I got to choose what I wanted to do it about.
Something I learnt about Myths and Legends was... that it can be true or made up.

                                use a variety of verbs and adjectives to make my writing more interesting, and
                                precise nouns

                            to complete all the set blogs for this term
                            to do a ‘Can Do’ blog about an achievement, some other learning or something I'm proud of

Art Attack


For art attack my goal was to produce a piece of art related to our local landscape using either paint,
water colour or pastel.
With Mrs Marsh I learned about foreground, midground and background in landscapes.
With Mr Forman I learned about colour and complementary colours.
With Mr Rule I looked at the different landscape features of Canterbury and Banks Peninsula.


  • we used these techniques in pastel mix the colours and fill in all the white on the page.
  • I was proud of my art because I tried my best and I mixed the pastel colours.
  • I enjoyed mixing the colours and doing the lessons they were interesting.
  • we included features such as trees, flax, birds, mountains, hills and buildings.
  • I found it difficult to find the right colours for my art, and I found it hard to colour in with out mixing colours that I didn't want to mix. 
  • I found it easy to draw the outline of the drawing.
  • in the teachers lessons with Mrs marsh I found out that, you can make a drawing look real with only using 3 tones, and that there is a foreground, midground, horizon and background.


  • next time I would like to use watercolour
  • I would like to get better at drawing the foreground, midground, horizon and background.
