What’s the difference in goals..
The two learning goals are short term goals (1 term) and a long term goal (1 year or longer).short term goals are steps to achieve your long term goal.

Learning Behaviour…

Don’t get distracted at my table and on the floor. This is a long term goal that will go till the end of the year.

Three steps…

1. To not fiddle with things
2. Not to talk to others
3. Sit at the front facing Mrs.Westerman or the white board.

Marvellous Maths…

My maths goal is to learn all my multiplication and division sums up to 12 off by heart. This is a long term goal which will go for 2 terms.

Three short steps.

1. Practise on times tables me and other websites/apps for 5 minutes every night.
2. To concentrate on the times table cheats when we do a specific time table.
3. To speak the pattern so I hear it in my sleep.

Excellent English…

My English goal is to improve when I read aloud. This is a long term goal which will go for about 2 terms.

Three easy short steps…

1.to read louder.
2.use good character expressions.
3.read to my mum and dad.

Im shooting for my goals. Literally.





Bridge Builder

In this investigation we had to roll our newspapers into cylinders.

The next step was to construct it so it could hold 10 cars.

This was the criteria:

-bridge has to be 65cm tall and 125cm wide

-has to hold ten cars.

My group (Jake, Oli and me) passed the criteria.

Marvellous Maths. Super Subtraction.

For the past Two weeks I have been learning about super subtraction. I have learnt 5 strategies about super subtraction.

– Jump strategy -Counting on or counting back on a number line.

– Regrouping- algorithms and Flip Flop.

– Space Invaders- Place value target and make next 10/100/1000.

Making Zero- taking away to get to zero exactly.

– Subtraction and Addition family- Add to get the answer.

My New Learning: I would use the mental way of the Jump strategy counting back.
