We are learning to read to self. This builds our reading stamina and helps us to get better at reading. We also have lots of fun reading!

Success Criteria

  • I read quietly
  • I concentrate on the book
  • I stay in space
  • I read the whole time
  • I get started straight away

How I am going

Read to self
Kerri thinks


I really like: Reading quietly to myself.

I think I need to practice: Staying in one spot.

Atta, I think you can read to self when you focus on your book and I know you like the quiet space to read and enjoy your book. Please remember to get started straight away rather than chatting to your friends.


We are learning to build our confidence in and around the water. We practise our swimming skills and love to show off our new tricks.

This is what I have been practising:
Safe entry into the pool (1/4 turn entry)
Kerri thinks

Submerge and blow bubbles
Kerri thinks

Float on my back (Starfish)
Kerri thinks

Float on my front (Starfish)
Kerri thinks

Pick up objects with my hand
Kerri thinks

Rocket arms on my front
Kerri thinks

Rocket arms on my back
Kerri thinks


I am really proud of: myself because I can pick up objects with my hand 

It is tricky when: I have to do rocket arms on my back

The next thing I want to learn is: doing rocket arms on my back

Atta, you are growing in confidence every time you swim and now you can pick up things off the bottom of the pool with your hand. I love the tricks you show me and now you can flip! Remember when you are floating on your back and doing rocket arms on your back you need to push your tummy up to the sky to help you float.
