Yay its the last term of year 6! This year has been sooooo much fun. These passion projects have made it even more fun. Well this is my last one! I wonder what will happen next year. Well enough of that let me explain my Passion project.
Ok so this term I thought I would bake a cake. My cake is going to be veryyyyyyy tasty and sickly at the same time. Comment on this post if you want some, haha just kidding. I want to make my cake massive because this is the last passion project. I am choosing cooking because I think it is sooo much fun getting lots of different ingredients and making one big tasty, spongy cake. On the holidays I loveeeeee making pancakes because of cooking. When my mum sometimes wasn’t home I would even make dinner. I think going through all of the ingredients in the pantry is so fun because you have to be very careful you don’t pick the wrong thing. But do you know what the best bit is…. licking the bowl hehe. Any way I hope my cake to have lots of different layers and be very pretty on the outside.
Now this term I have some goals:
1- I want to get my passion project done earlier so I don’t have to stress over it.
2- I want to use lots of different angles so my passion project doesn’t make everyone yawn.
3- This is probably my biggest goal, I have been using movie maker to edit but I want to use premier pro this term and challenge myself a bit more. Anyway, if I mess it up it doesn’t matter because I can either start again or have a laugh!
What do I intend to create- I want to show everybody how to make a nice yummy tall cake without me speaking. Everyone should know how to make a cake and if you don’t why not learn of my film. Since my cake is going to be big not everyone has to follow all my decoration parts thye can just stop at the oven stage but if you want to make the same cake as me. Writing this I just had an idea, maybe I can use icing pens.
What technologies do I intend to learn about- I want to start learning more about premier pro because I don’t know too much about it so I can have a fiddle around.
Who is your project for- My project is mainly for people that want to learn to make a cake and for maybe inspiration on ideas to decorate. I want my cake to make me feel happy and my audience to also feel happy.
What are you mostly looking forward to- Well being honest, eating the cake. But um maybe filming because I get to make the cake then lick the bowl then eat it. And I might bring some in for my teacher. (I don’t know if I am allowed to say her name).
Anyways the passion project should be really fun and I am really looking forward to it! Btw (by the way) the picture down below is not what my cake will look like!
I finished filming and editing last week. My dad helped me film my passion project. I filmed my whole passion project on the same day. I really like my passion project because I got to film everything I like doing. I edited on Movie maker because it was quite simple and it was easier to use. I didn’t really use my script because we just used what we thought was better. My passion project was better this term because I had it sorted.
This is my 1 1/2 passion project blog post. The reason why it is called 1 1/2 is because I actually haven’t done much since my last blog post. On Tuesday my Mum and I are going to go and film. We have a few snippets of the film but we are going to actually film the whole thing on Tuesday.
My factoural film is going to be about The Great Ocean Road. I have found out a lot the great ocean road and how it all started.
The main topic that I think I might do is all about how it started, why it started and the views. I have done this becaysue I am very interested in all the facts about how the 3000 returned soliders built the geat ocean road for a permement memorial for those who died in woeld war 1 It took around 13 year for them to build it and they only got about 61 pence which is 30 c and day.
I think story is important because the people that fourt for us built the great ocean road and it is a memorial for those who died fir us wich is very important. Some of the soldiers actually died whilst making and building the great ocean road. Their are clifts all through The Graet Ocean Road so the soliders would risk their lives to hang off the cifts so they could chip away the rock.
Here are the facts that I found out whilst researching The Great Ocean Road:
- The great ocean road is 243 km long.
- The great ocean road starts at Torquay and ends at Allansford.
- The soldiers who returned from war made the great ocean road.
- The road was carved by pick and shovel.
- The soldiers that made the great ocean road would have to hang off cliffs and probably died for some of them.
- You can also walk the great ocean road for diabetes.
- Approximately 3000 people returned from war and helped to build the great ocean road. It took 13 year to make from 1919 to 1932.
- The reason why the Barwon heads sky diving is on the great ocean road is because it was originally going to start at Barwon heads.
- On the 26th of November 1932, the road officially opened.
- Some people illegally some people set up campsites and made people pay to come and use the great ocean road.
- One dollar is 61 pence and the workers got 18 pence a day which now days is 30c.
- The great ocean was originally going to end at Warrnambool.
- The great ocean road is a permanent memorial for those who died by fighting in world war 1
- Construction began in September 1919 using a large labour force of some 3000 returned soldiers from world war 1.
- The soldiers were chosen to build the great ocean road because they couldn’t get other jobs because they were crippled.
At the moment in project maths we were set a challenge! Our challenge was to find a solution to add all the numbers up to 100 up – E.G 1+2+3… and so on. A School boy named Carl Frederish Gaussa in the 17 hundreads answered the question by the time the teacher walked about 10 metres without knowing the teacher would ask that question, since it was in the 17 hundreads he had no caculater. WOW. We had to work with some different strategies and we had to work it out. It was not as easy as it sounded. It took us 1 session to finally get our answer (8/8/17).
So, what I did was I used a calculator but that was not at all fast. On the calculator, we could only put 30 numbers on at the time. The answer Sienna and I got was 14,162 but somehow that was wrong. The real answer was 5050. Then what I did, as another strategy was I used long addition, which took a long, time but go my brain working more than using a calculator. I split it up in sections of 1+2+3 until I reached ten and my answer from 1- 10 was which equals 55. I did that again with the teens so 11+12+13… 20 and then I add that up until I get my answer, which was 135. I then added on that to my other number 55 and the equals 190 and I did that and kept going until I got to 100.
Some other people used blocks, which showed us how, work some things out faster but I seriously do not know how that helped.
The different mathematics that I used were long addition, calculator, adding, blocks 9 I had a go but I didn’t really understand them) and my last one I had to use was subtraction because when I got things wrong I had to subtract them.
The most challenging thing was properly being confused by doing my long addition strategy because I had to add up my numbers in each brackets then add up the totals out of all, which was really quite confusing.
I have learnt how to add up long addition a lot better and how to add up brackets better but this task has been fun, I really enjoyed it.
Term three is here and we are doing passion projects again. I am doing mine on exercise. Lets hope its better than my last one !!!
I have had to prepare for my passion project how I will film, where I will film, when I will film and how to get some of the things in my passion project to work such as making the dog drop the ball. I have also already done my shot list so I pretty much ready to film.
I do not have many different shots in my film but the shots I will be using are M.S aka Mid Shot, C.U aka Close Up, E.C.U aka Extreme Close Up, L.A aka Low Angle and last Dolly. I think these shots will suit my projects because I feel like they look good with the things that I will be filming, e.g a M.S of a lady bug is not good because you can hardly see it but a C.U you can with the finest detail.
My next step will probably be filming because I have done everything else. I just need to find a time to do it/film it so I will probably do it next week some time. I need to sort out who will be filming with me because I can’t A- film on my own and B- I can’t go to some of these place by myself.
The purpose of my project is to make everyone big, small, skinny or jubby do exercise. I am also trying to say that you do exercise because it fun not because you need to lose weight. Running and walking is one of my passions so I want everyone to give it a go. Put some music on and out you go
My project is for basically everyone because everyone can run if they get them selves out the door and actually try to enjoy it. I am really looking forward to just making my passion project my own and not anybody elses. ITS MINE!
shotlist pp term 3-r1prfg
Yay, Term 2 is nearly over. But that means we have to write our reflections. So here is mine!!!
Passion Projects- This term as home learning we had to create a film about a passion that we have. I chose the ocean. But we lost our go pro in the ocean when we were filming. So I had to choose another topic. I chose sport. When I next do my passion project I want to make sure my footage is not bumpy. My passion project was also terribly boring so I want to change that. I think passion projects were really fun because we could see what other people passions are. All of the passion projects were different so I thought that was entertaining as well.
Writing- In writing this semester I am really improving on how long my stories are. My writing Is also starting to get les boring. I have loved thinking for ideas because I can choose what ever I want. We also got some cards that we have used in RVE so we could think of more ideas. I also really enjoy doing my seed because I could get all of my writing down!
Sport- I have ABSOLUTELY loved sport this term. We could choose a sport to play. I chose Netball. We got to vs other schools which was really good. I loved sport. Their was an A team and then their was just other teams. I was in the A team. I loved playing netball because I could play with girls at this school that I have never played with before. We also started a girls football team. The girls football team is really fun. At the moment we are just training but in term 3 we will go to another school and play them.
P.E- This term in P.E we have done lots of filming. To be honest P.E wasn’t that fun the term because we had to focus on one skill and film it. I did the over arm through. The over arm through was fun but I wish we could do the drop punt as well as over arm through but we had to choose one of them.
T.E.D- This term we have started TED talks. My topic is dogs being locked in hot cars. I and no idea of what my topic was going to be but then I thought of animal cruelty. I think TED is really fun because we can write a 3-4 min about a topic that we like. We can put down anything that we thought would make people feel a bit guilty. I have finished my story clip. Our story clips are our ted talks recorder from our voices and we have pictures as well.
Goals for term 3- My term three goals are
.Get 5 published writing pieces done.
. Make all my writing neat
. Do all my home work.
This is my last bog post for my passion project term 2. The term is nearly over and we have all finished our passion projects. As you would know if you raed my last passion project post I had to find another topic to do my passion project on. I chose sport. I actually won’t be getting feedback until tomorrow but I will share what I got from my family. Ok so my parents think that I have done a really good job by actually getting it done because I had to do it on the last week because of struggles we had. My dad said that I should of had photos. The reason why I didn’t have photos was because I did my project on movie maker and that photos stood that sae for about 5 seconds and I didn’t know how to change that.
My project did NOT turn out the way I had planned it to. My topic was at first the ocean. Now I am doing sport. So no I did not plan it to be like that. I think that I have done my whole film well like every body else but I really like how all of my scenes are not all the same sport at the same time. I have a little bit of netball and a bit of other sports but it is not all in the one spot for that same sport. Next time I think I can improve on all my footage and my angle because since my passion project was last minute I had to get all my footage of USBs and phones. I learnt through the process that bad things will take their turn but I just need to steer it my way. Putting it in different words I mean when something happens you need to get right back up and give it another try. I think next time I will not leave my passion project so far into the term. Here Is My Finished Passion Project
(I will put my passion project up tomorrow because I didn’t know how to put it on but I tried)
So in our passion projects everyone is up to date but someone is not… ME. I’m not up to date. But I have an excuse. Long story short. But I have time so I will explain it for you. So have you ever been to the ocean to film with a go pro? Well that was my last time. It was a big surf that day and we were filming my 6th scene. My dad decided to see if it would float so he put it down in the ocean. We look back on it now and that was a bad idea. The go pro sank down down DOWN. A big wave came in and crashed it onto shore. Then the ocean sucked it back up to the never ending ocean. So we lost our footage. I have been thing constantly about my topic now. My mind has said to me Puppy, No sport, No Puppy, no sport. Guess what I chose. Well I chose sport. What I am doing at the moment is I am getting a bundle of photos and videos of the sport that I play. Not just sport though. I have videos of me motor bike riding so to me that is a sport. On the weekend my mum is going to film me playing netball so I can add that as well. I have planned out a few things along the track. I am going to use movie maker I am going to use movie maker and editor. I am using my parents phone to film because it will be easier because then we don’t have it on 3 phones. The skills I will use will be changing the colour, slow mo and I will also be adding music. The music I want to add is 30 second [How far i’ll go]. The things that I will try new are the app I am using because I have never used it before. The things that I will be adding into mu video aka the order thing that I am doing. Don’t ask what it is because it is a surprise. The thing that I think I will learn is how to use the app because I have never heard of it or used it as I said before.
Today I completed card two of problem solving. The problem was very easy. You had to draw a map on how you can get to a meeting and back. You had to use directions such as North, South, East and West. The instructions gave us the ways to go. I made a rule that 2 grids equals 1 km. I really liked this activity not only because it was easy but because it was different. We usually had to do a lot of maths but this was just a map. I think that we should have gotten a harder question because we didn’t have to use our brain for this which I think the point is to learn. I liked this though because I thought it was very creative. It also gave me a little break from thinking a lot!
