C.A.R.E Values Blog, Week 8-9, term 3

My goal is to develop the consistent use of our CARE Values towards all the people I interact with and for myself .

  • My strengths are in being a person that cares about anyone even the people that aren't my friends because nobody should deserve to be picked on.
  • I have achieved my Bronze certificate.

  • I am going to work towards my Silver Because I can be an even more caring person on the way to getting it.

Integrated Learning Presentation

I have presented my narrative using: Book creator.

I worked with: Amelia Trick-Pendle.

My narrative showed empathy by: Our superheros saved all animals from going extinct.

The thing I enjoyed most about this learning was: It could be about anything (because it was a narrative) so we could use our imagination.

Something I learnt about Myths and Legends was: Legends might be true and myths might be true as well, but sometimes neither of them are true.

Art Attack Blog, Week 5, term 3


For art attack my goal was to produce a piece of art related to our local landscape using either paint, watercolour or pastel.

With Mrs Marsh I learned about foreground, mid ground 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.

I learned with Mrs Marsh that the foreground means the front of the drawing or picture, and you have to make things in the foreground bigger than things in the background e.g. a tree in the foreground is bigger than hills in the background (it sounds crazy but it's true).

This is my art. It is a pastel drawing of the curators house at the botanical gardens.
I like it because it has lots of colour and I think it is a good drawing. It was hard because I am used to drawing Elephants, flowers and stuff like that.

My Student Led Conference

How I felt about my student led conference:  I felt scared because it was a new set-up. And I didn't like the rotations because I didn't get enough time to finish everything on time.

What was good about it: I did it.

What I might do different next time: not do highlights, C.A.R.E, Mihi or integrated topic, because I don't need them.

What was challenging: everything.

What my parents thought: I did very well because it was a hard and new set-up.

Te Reo Maori

We have been learning language about Ko Au witch means Me Myself and I.

Something I have learnt to say is: Ko Kate tenei. Koia taku mama.       Ko Isaac tenei. Koia taku Papa.

My next learning step is: To learn my Mihi off by heart.
