PE/Sport Blog, Week 6-7, term 3

For PE/Sport my goals were to use:
  • Positive relationships with individuals or groups.
  • Positive teamwork with your team members

So what?
  • From the rubrics below choose where you think you are on the both of the rubrics.
    • PE: Relationships with individuals and groups
    • PE: Teamwork
  • Give evidence

Here is an example we worked together and managed to win 2 games

PE: Relationships with individuals and groups

I can work in a group with anyone in my  year level or team  because I listen to what others suggest and try to carry this out.  I can give suggestions how to improve how we play

PE: Teamwork
I can interact confidently with others in a team and make individual compromises based on identifying ways to improve team outcomes.  I was able to identify ways we could improve when it felt like we were not playing as a team.  I could also listen carefully to advice from others to help us improve our game.

(don’t copy this: Write about some of the following things)
  • I will practice being positive if we are on the losing end.
  • I will participate more fully.

PE: Teamwork

I can interact with others in a team, adopting different roles to meet different demands.

I can participate and take responsibility in a team and explain my choices in terms of team outcomes.
Give repeated opportunities to practise.

PE: Relationships with individuals and groups

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, water colour 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.


  • What features you included in your art : I added a few trees in the mid ground and a few birds in the background. i added 2 bushes in the fore ground and some mountains/hills in the background
  • I used pastels to make my art look more realistic and cool.
  • I enjoyed getting to blend in the colours to make a cool pattern
(don’t copy this: Write about some of the following things)

  • I would like to try water colour if I did another landscape because i could blend the colours with all sorts of colours and shades of the colour as well

I have been learning to solve subtraction problems by using equal additions from a tidy number 

So What?
I have learned that when you have an equation like 73 - 28  = you can either add the same number to both sides, or you can subtract the same number from both sides. 
I have learned that it is easier to make one of the numbers into a tidy number as it is easier to work out the answer.

Now What?
My next step is to use this strategy independently
My next step is to use this strategy with larger numbers
