Term 2 Reading 2014

I am learning to read silently, clarify unfamiliar words or phrases, question others about the story, summarise the text in my own words and find the important information in what I read and to reflect upon what I read.

Mrs Small: What do you like about reading?

Lillian: Reading with the group and talking about it. I like all sorts of books.

My place in Christchurch

A Place that is important to me in Christchurch..
The park at Patterson Terrace because it is lots of fun and I meet my friends Claudia and Gabby there.

My drawing of still life at the workshop by Mr Shaskey.

We are learning to ...

  • plan a drawing using the elements of line, tone, texture, colour, form, shape, and space
  • use the techniques of sketching, using the correct brush strokes, colour mixing, texturing, and applying a black border.
  • communicate and interpret my idea of a kowhaiwhai pattern.
