In Reading we have been selecting goals to help us better understand the text. We have also been writing about our reading once a week. A good reading response has a sentence about your goal, an explanation and an example from the text.

In Writing we are working on our personal narratives, we are learning how to describe the characters and our settings. We have worked on using lots of detail and descriptive words, and created character sketches.

Last week in Maths we set stretch goals. Stretch goals:
– Give you something to work towards and something to celebrate when you achieve them!
– Give you a challenge!
– Give you confidence and put the pressure on (in a good way)!
– Make you want to work harder!
We placed our stretch goals on the Problem Solving Continuum and thought about what skill we would like to be working on by week 4 of term 3 this year.

Our central idea is:
When people express themselves through the arts there can be different interpretations.
We are inquiring into different artists, forms of art and feelings, nature, culture, beliefs and values expressed through the arts.
