Ideas Trait

This week 3A have been learning about how to use the Ideas trait in their Writers Notebooks. Writers who use the Ideas trait well produce entries that are clear, focussed and interesting. We have talked about how important it is to focus on one small moment and choose topics that we know a lot about.

Today we went outside and wrote an entry about the things we could see, hear and feel.


What are some of your ideas?

You Can Do It!

Our year has got off to a fabulous start. Everyone in 3A understands and is able to use all of the Keys To Success. These are Organisation, Getting Along, Confidence, Persistence and Resilience.

Today we learnt about Persistence and the importance of having a growth mindset. We came up with some positive ways of thinking. For example instead of thinking or saying “I can’t do this!” say “This is hard but I am going to try my best.”

We also talked about setting goals that we can work towards achieving.

These photos are of 3A interviewing a partner to find out how they are the same and how they are different. The student’s used Venn Diagrams to show their results.
