It’s been a short but intensely busy fortnight back! Students reflected on their approaches to learning and set SMART goals, which they shared in their 3 way conferences. It was a challenging and in-depth process but the students persevered and were very principled about how they see themselves as learners and where they needed to improve. Thank you for attending the conferences and being a part of the support to help the students achieve their goals.
The students spent time planning, drafting, revising, editing and posting on our student class blog. They also responded to posts from their classmates. This was part of the How We Express Ourselves summative assessment task (making quality posts and responding appropriately to another post). Please spend some time looking at the students’ posts.

Students have been busy planning which learning engagements to share for their walk through assembly. They practiced and spoke confidently to a broad audience consisting of peers and adults. Students were engaged in explaining the process of their learning
In Math we started to look at addition and subtraction strategies. Students completed a pre-assessment task showing their prior knowledge. In the weeks coming we will learn and practice the following – compensating, split and jump strategy. More about these strategies in another blogpost.
