We have been incredibly lucky with the warm sunny weather this week. Our swimming skills are progressing each day, over the last week we have all improved our swimming strokes and breathing technique. We have 6 more lessons with the Hilton Brown instructors and we are excited to see how much more we can improve in this time.

Each week our class has a 45 minute music lesson with Ms Alexander. These lessons are packed with singing, rhythm, composing and playing music. We are currently learning how to compose an Ostinato, this is a continually repeated rhythm. Our Ostinatos are five beats, composed using three different notes, we select our three notes from the notes A,G,E,D,C. We are learning how to record these notes using musical notation on a Stave.
This video gives you a quick glimpse into what we fit into one music lesson.

We have spent the first few weeks of the term finding out about what it means to be a learner. We have enquired into how an effective learner behaves and the strategies we can take to be successful learners. Key to all of this was developing our knowledge of the Learning Pit and understanding that if we are learning then we will feel challenged, frustrated, confused, excited and curious.
We created this video to share at our first Team Assembly, sadly technical issues prevented us from sharing it but we hope to share it at an Assembly soon.
