Maths - geometry

We have been learning about shapes and position words. Position words tell us where something is or where it is going. 

We use words like: On the cushion, on the mat, In front, behind, the back of the class, around, under, beside, between, middle, on top, in, through, out, off. 
We have also learned about turns and can make full and half turns. Quarter turns were new for us and can be tricky.

Task: Pick a picture of the blocks in a pattern (dont show your buddy). Using our maths words describe how to make the pattern. Remember to give accurate clear instructions.

Success Criteria:
  • I use the correct names for shapes 
  • I use our maths postiton words
  • I  give clear instructions about position
  • I follow postion instructions

You are learning to use the correct names for your shapes and your maths position language. It can be tricky to give clear intrusions using your voice and not pointing your hands. Remember to keep on practising. Playing Simon says and learning in the playground can be a way of helping.


Whakawhanaungatanga


We have been learning all about whakawhanaungatanga and what it means. We think it is all about getting along better, including everybody and being in a team.

When we are showing Whakawhanaungatanga we will :

 
See:  people sharing and noticing other people

Hear:  kind words, encouraging words like "ka pai", "good job”, “can I help?"

Think about: about other people, listen and share.


Task: Listen to your buddy and learn some things about them. Work together to create a poster sharing what you have learned about each other. Remember to practise using encouraging words, to share ideas and to notice how you your buddy might be feeling. 

 Success Criteria:     
  • I used kind words.
  • I listened to my buddy and found out something new.
  • I shared my ideas with my buddy.
  • I show whakawhanaungatanga in and out of the playground.
My Poster

Reflection
I used kind words.
 



I listened to my buddy and found out something new.
 



I shared my ideas with my buddy.
 



I show whakawhanaungatanga in and out of the playground.
 


I show whakawhanaungatanga when: I play nicely and I care for other peolpe.

It was hard when: Saying sorry if I hurt them.


I really liked: I liked helping someone if they got hurt.

You are a kind and caring young lady. You notice when people are upset and do something to help. You use kind words in the class and in the playground, always showing whakawhanaungatanga.


My first post

My favourite to do at school is swim in the pool and when I grow up I want singer because I am really good.
I can see you love to swim Zoe and I am looking forward to you sharing your beautiful singing voice during music and singing!
