Things are getting pretty exciting with production practice starting to get underway. Here's a few things to look out for over the coming week.
- In art recently, we've been looking at doing a picture with an object in the foreground, an object in the background and a horizon line. We've also been practicing observational drawing using a pencil.
- In maths, we're just finishing off a unit on time, from this week onwards we'll be looking at filling some gaps in the students' numeracy skills. I'll post some resources and home learning ideas later on in the week. Revising how to read a clock and getting your child to work out how long they spend doing various activities would be excellent home learning follow up.
- In writing, we'll be looking at doing a fictional recount following on from the non-fictional holiday recount we're finishing off currently. We'll be looking at describing an imaginary worst day ever. You could brainstorm some ideas with your child to help them think of funny unfortunate events they could include in their piece.
- We've been beavering away at learning the actions for a haka called Utaina and a waiata called E Te Ariki. You could get your child to perform what they remember of the pieces and show you the actions. It's a work in progress, but by this stage your child should be able to remember most of the words and at least some of the actions.
