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

My Shapes 



I use the correct names for shapes


I use our maths postiton words


I give clear instructions about position


I follow position instructions




Reflection

I can: use a quarter turn and understand the maths position words.

It was hard when: we played Simon says because sometimes Kerri tricked us and it was hard then.

I really liked: making the shapes that the people say.

Kerri thinks



Jamie, what a great job you have done with this learning! You use the correct names for the shapes and use maths position words to give instructions. I am glad you enjoyed this learning and that I managed to trick you during Simon says and keep you thinking!

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 help people when the fall over, I notice when people need help.

It was hard when: when somebody else is talking and you want to talk.


I really liked: listening to people's ideas.


Kerri Thinks
 


Jamie, you show whakawhanaungatanga in and out of the classroom. You use kind words and you do notice when people need help. It can be really tricky when you have an idea that you want to share and somebody else is already talking. Remember to keep on sharing your fabulous ideas and thinking during learning times.

What I want to be when I grow up

I love to go down the pole because it makes me smile. When I grow up I want to be a artist because I like art.


I can see your smile when you go down the pole! You have created some beautiful pieces of art already this year and I am looking forward to seeing what you create throughout the year.
