a moment in time

I see a bright rainbow while it is raining and the sun is out at the same time.
I see rain and puddles on the ground.  
I hear splashing on the ground and in the puddles.
I hear the smooth wind blowing the rain to the side.
I feel rain on my umbrella.
I feel rain dripping from the umbrella to my hand.
I think the rainbow will be gone soon.
I wonder when the rain will come again?

My Learning Goals

Today we looked through our reports from last year. We identified a next step (goal) for reading, writing and maths. Here are my goals:

Maths: My next step is to use 'tidy tys' when adding and subtracting e.g. 185-7 as- (185-5)-2

To achieve this goal I will: try my hardest.

Reading: My next step is to persevere when self-correcting words which I am unsure of.

To achieve this goal I will: chunk the words up like hard-est and chu-nk.

Writing: MY next step is to write for different purposes using a range of genres such as explanations and instructions.

To achieve this goal I will: try to do my extra hardest on my goal.

We also looked at our STAR results.
  • Word recognition I got 8 out of 10.
  • Sentence comprehension I got 10 out of 10.
  • Paragraph comprehension I got 10 out of 15.
  • Vocabulary I got 9 out of 10.

I am going to focus on: Paragraph comprehension

To improve in this area I will: practice practice and more practice until I get 10 out of 10 in Paragraph comprehension.

Active Listening

We are learning about different types of listening. There are 3 main types of listening that we learnt about. Busy Listening - When the person listening is busy doing something. They are too busy to concentrate on what is being said. Me Too Listening - When the person listening has a story that they feel is more important than the person talking so they interrupt and share their story instead of listening. Active Listening - When the person listening looks at the person talking, concentrates, gives non-verbal feedback (e.g. nodding) and asks questions about the story. To learn about the different types of listening, we watched this video:


 As a class we created our own video to help us understand the different types.
After practising each type of listening, we realised…

  • Busy listening makes us feel like you’re not listening to us. We found it really hard to keep talking. 
  • Me too listening makes us feel frustrated and sad that you think your story is more important. 
  • Active listening makes us feel valued. We know you are listening because you are looking, nodding, asking questions. 

 As a class we are all trying to get better at being active listeners.


In music with Jenny we are learning to play in a band. We are all learning different instruments and we are working on our rhythm. Check out our videos:

Van Gogh Styled Art

We are learning to paint like Van Gogh. We have read lots of books and watched some tutorials. We've experimented with painting our portraits and now we have had a go at painting sunflowers.

Our paintings needs to have
  • short brush strokes
  • bright colours
  • positive & negative images (Main object with a complementing background)
We watched this video before starting to help us with our painting.
I am proud of the shapes of my sunflowers.
The most challenging part was drawing it.
If I were to do it again I would like it to brighter.
