Peace Week 2017

I have been learning about Peace Week.
Peace Week is an annual tradition organised by The Peace Foundation every year. You can learn more about The Peace Foundation by following this LINK.

As a way to learn about Peace Week I did three different Peace Week activities.

With Miss Brennan we created a poster to help promote peace and Peace Week.
With Mrs Baker we made hand print doves and wrote messages of peace on them.
With Mr Horn we looked at the symbols of peace such as the dove and created origami doves.

Here is an example of one of my activities

Student Led Conference

My highlight at my student led conference was I got to show my dad what we have been doing in the year 4 hub because he did not know everything that the year 4 hub does.

I am most proud of sharing my writing because my dad said that I had amazing handwriting.

I think my parents enjoyed my learning because they like it when I showed them what we were leaning about.

Next time I would like to talk more slowly.


My learning  goal this term is to order and sequence the ideas in a text.

I can do this by putting ideas from the text in order they happened in.

This photo shows my learning.

Procedural Writing

WALHT write a procedure.

Something I learned about writing a procedure is how to make good instructions by having everything you need in a list.

Something I would like to do better is use more verbs  in my writing.

Here is  my learning.

WALHT Display data in a bar graph.
Something I learned was how to do a bar graph .
Here is a photo of my learning.
My next step is to remember to leave a gap between my numbers.


We are doing  hip hop and salsa in dance.
I enjoyed hip hop because I really like all of the dance moves.
I learned how to do salsa.


WALHT add a twist to our writing.
Here is my poem;

I didn't BUT I did
I didn't  see a flying unicorn
I didn't see a talking pig
I didn't see a chocolate house
BUT I did see 3 movie

I didn't eat a cow brain
I didn't eat a dog
I didn't eat cat meat
BUT I did eat pizza

I didn't go to Mars
I didn't go to the sun
I didn't go to Pluto
BUT I did do baking

Next time I would like to make my writing more interesting by using more creative words.

This is my example It's so fluffy I am going to die.
Next time I would like to use more ANZAC ideas in my poetry.
