I can work in a group with anyone in my  year level or team  because I listen to what others suggest and try to carry this out.  I can give suggestions how to improve how we play

PE: Teamwork
I can interact confidently with others in a team and make individual compromises based on identifying ways to improve team outcomes.  I was able to identify ways we could improve when it felt like we were not playing as a team.  I could also listen carefully to advice from others to help us improve our game.

(don’t copy this: Write about some of the following things)
  • I will practice being positive if we are on the losing end.
  • I will participate more fully.

Art Attack Blog, Week 5, term


For art attack my goal was to produce a piece of art related to our local landscape using either paint, water colour or pastel.

With Mrs Marsh I learned about foreground, mid ground and background in landscapes.
With Mr Forman I learned about colour and complementary colours.
With Mr Rule I looked at the different landscape features of Canterbury and Banks Peninsula.


  • What features I included in my art: flax and flowers in the foreground trees and pond in the mid ground and hills in the background.
  • I used paint / dry brushing
  • I am proud of completing my art
  • What I found easy was drawing the horizons


  • I would like to try water colour and pastel if I did another landscape because …I woud like to try something different.
  • I would like to get better at showing foreground, mid ground and background.
