City Trip

What was interesting?

The Art Gallery was very interesting because when we were going up the stairs we looked up at the ceiling and and there were chairs and tables on the ceiling hanging down and there were light tubes in the middle of them.

The Museum was also interesting because we got to learn about the olden days and what they used (they used a drill with to pieces of wood, the stick had a piece of Ponamo on the end of it to drill)

Reading ( AVAILLL )

Something that i have enjoyed so far in AVAILL is.... That we got to watch movies as well as doing learning.So what you can see here is my work for AVAILLL, you had to read the subtitles and the last word of the sentence.The tricky part of this was when Mr Rule/Mr Reed skipped the part where it had the word.                                                                                                                                                                       

Integrated Learning

I have presented my narrative using story book creater.

I worked with Emma.

My narrative showed empathy by Gracie helping Anna by knowing how she felt.

The thing I enjoyed most about this learning was getting to create this story.

Something I learnt about Myths and Legends was that there are so many ways to create the story.

Art Attack

Isla M's 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 pastel.

With Mrs Marsh I learned about  foreground, mid ground and background in landscapes.

  • I learned about the mid ground ,foreground and background.
  • Rivers, mountains, grasses and flakes bushes.
  • I used dark on foreground and light on background and a mix in mid ground.
  • I enjoyed using different colored pastel on my art.
  • Doing small mountains and a big flake bush in the foreground.
  • Sketching was a bit hard for me but I did it any way and coloring was the easy part.


  • I would like to do water color next time because I want to add some water colors in my art picture
  • I would like to get better at showing lots of stuff in the background and mid ground.



My learning goal is to split numbers into tens and ones.

I have learned to use this strategy to answer my questions easier.     E.G: 34+42=76 because 3+4=7 and 4+2=6 so it is 76

My next step is to try more harder questions using this strategy.

Integrated Topic

WALT: Design a floor plan for an area in our school.

I learned: To measure areas by foot.

Here is an example of my learning: The netball court the length was 85 and the width was 58.

Next time I will: Use a good measure tape and do it that way.


WALT: Throw, strike and kick large balls.

I learned: To kick the ball on the side of my foot.

Here is an example of my learning: I showed my skills of striking and a game of rounders.

Next time I will: Try harder and use different skills.

Cross Country

WALT run 1 5 km for Cross Country

I learned that it is quite hard to run that distance but I got through by trying my best.

I achieved my goal because I tried not to stop running.

Next time I will try and get first second or third.
