Peace Week 2017

I have been learning about Peace Week.
Peace Week is an annual tradition organised by The Peace Foundation every year. You can learn more about The Peace Foundation by following this LINK.

As a way to learn about Peace Week I did three different Peace Week activities.

With Miss Brennan we created a poster to help promote peace and Peace Week.
With Mrs Baker we made hand print doves and wrote messages of peace on them.
With Mr Horn we looked at the symbols of peace such as the dove and created origami doves.

Here is an example of one of my activities

We are learning to write scripts to create a play.

My play is called "Alien Attack"

Student Led Conference

My highlight at my student led conference was my maths because I got to do a math game race around the clock my dad timed me on my tens.

I am most proud of is my reading because I finished  all my self  managed leaning activities.

Next time I will try to be more confident.
