CARE Values

I know how to show my CARE values in the classroom. I think we have CARE values at Oaklands school because we need to learn to use them. I think the most important classroom CARE value is be aware of others.

Integrated learning

WALT  describe ideas about school design. The school idea I am presenting is a device room. I am presenting this by making a model. I think the school should use this idea because it will have solar panels and it won't waste power.


At Star fish swim school I learnt how to do survival back stroke. The most challenging thing I did was doing Butterfly. The thing I was most proud of was moving to another lane.

Persuasive Writing

We are learning to write persuasively. Some places I would find persuasive writing are stories, blog posts and letters.

Reading-The BFG

I would use the word clever to describe Sophie. I think Roald Dahl wrote  this story because its a great story for children.

BFG review

The BFG by Roald Dahl. My favourite part in the BFG is when the queen finds Sophie on her window sill. My favourite character was the BFG because his language is Gobblefunk. I  don't think they should change anything. I think Roald Dahl wrote this book because it is funny and good for children.

Strand maths

We have learnt how to measure different objects. Three units of measurement I know are grams, meters and kilometers.

Visual art

Last week I created a collage showing an ocean habitat. The three animals I chose were a seal, dolphin and an anemone. The feature I was most proud of was my seal.

writing goal

My writing goal is to learn more interesting words.
Something I will do to achieve this is to read more books.

Reading-Our class Novel

As a class we read the novel Best Mate by Michael Morpurgo. The best thing about this book was that Patrick saved Best Mate and his family from drowning in the canal. A question I have for the author is "Why doesn't he remember Best Mate?" I am feeling happy to start reading the BFG.

Integrated learning term 2

Our new focus is on animals and habitats. A question I have is ... Why do animals have tails?

Reading food labels

We can use food labels to make healthy choices by... Reading the ingredients so you know what is in the product or food.
