 Design Brief
We want a decorative model that can be put on top of the shelves by the windows. The model needs to be:
  • Made from cardboard
  • A flat pack design
  • Good enough to go in a shop
We had a go at following instructions to make a flat pack Christmas Tree. We used this concept to help us to create our own flat pack using the design process.

As part of the design process we created prototypes and reflected on what worked and what didn't.

This term the value we are focusing on is Responsibility(Kawenga). I will take responsibility for my learning and deliberately enter the 'learning pit'.
The Learning Pit from Kenilworth Learning on Vimeo.
I will use my initiative, as well as, take responsibility for myself and my belongings. I don't want to get 'stuck on the escalator'!

Planet Earth & Beyond Pre Assessment

This term we are studying ‘Planet Earth and Beyond’. Part of this Inquiry includes looking at how we get shadows, as well as day and night. Over the term we will be doing different investigations to better our understanding. Below is a sample of my current thinking.

My Learning Goals

Today we looked through our reports from last year. We identified a next step (goal) for reading, writing and maths. Here are my goals:

Maths: My next step is to use my knowledge of what makes 10 to solve equations like 86+?=90

To achieve this goal I will: I will learn my number bonds to 10.

Reading: My next step is to make mature conclusions about texts.

To achieve this goal I will: I will use key information to talk about what I have read.

Writing: My next step is to edit thoroughly without being prompted.

To achieve this goal I will: When I have finished reading, I will read it out loud to check for full stops, capital letters, & spelling errors.

We also looked at our STAR results.
  • Word recognition I got 9 out of 10.
  • Sentence comprehension I got 9 out of 10.
  • Paragraph comprehension I got 0 out of 15.
  • Vocabulary I got 4 out of 10.

I am going to focus on: Paragraph Comprehension

To improve in this area I will: Use the links on our blog.

In music with Jenny we are learning to play in a band. We are all learning different instruments and we are working on our rhythm. Check out our videos:

My Reflection: jenny let us use instriments. i found it hard to chune the instrament in the rite order. 

Active Listening

We are learning about different types of listening. There are 3 main types of listening that we learnt about. Busy Listening - When the person listening is busy doing something. They are too busy to concentrate on what is being said. Me Too Listening - When the person listening has a story that they feel is more important than the person talking so they interrupt and share their story instead of listening. Active Listening - When the person listening looks at the person talking, concentrates, gives non-verbal feedback (e.g. nodding) and asks questions about the story. To learn about the different types of listening, we watched this video:


 As a class we created our own video to help us understand the different types.
After practising each type of listening, we realised…

  • Busy listening makes us feel like you’re not listening to us. We found it really hard to keep talking. 
  • Me too listening makes us feel frustrated and sad that you think your story is more important. 
  • Active listening makes us feel valued. We know you are listening because you are looking, nodding, asking questions. 

 As a class we are all trying to get better at being active listeners.

My Maths Learning

We are learning to use repeated addition to solve multiplication problems. Using the animal strips makes it easier to skip count using the number line.
