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.
