Music

In music with Mr McCullum I have been learning to play the ukulele.


I'll know I've been successful when I hold the ukulele correctly and can strum the cords.



Something I learned was how to play the F cord and the F minor cord.

Taiao

In Taiao I have been learning about chickens. I have learned about the parts of a chicken, some facts about chickens, the parts of an egg (which I used to make an omelet), and what a chicken needs to be happy and healthy. Something I found hard was the chickens.

Creative Writing - Scripts

We are learning to write scripts to create a play.

We know we are successful if our script has:
- multiple characters
- a setting
- character speech
- stage direction (in a different colour to the speech)

Once we have written our scripts we are creating the plays using Puppet Pals.


My play is called "Meagan's Play"
