This term in year 6 has been a busy one. We have done ted talks, passion projects and much, much more. At the start of the term, we started our first passion project. “P.S we have to do another one next term.” I don’t have that many passions so this was really hard. I even asked my parents to help me think. They had nothing. Therefore, I just did baking. It was not the best but it was not the worst, I hope. Everyone laughed at it so it could not be the worst. I wonder what I will do next term.
Going onto the ted talks. I did mine on hope and how you should always have hope. We all had to do a story clip witch we would share with the year fives, fours and all of the year sixes. I think mine was pretty good if I may say so myself but it is all up to the audience. We get to choose if we also want to do a live talk. I think I will do one but I do not know.
In math this term, I think I did well. I even entered a math contest for next term. I think math will be something I will never understand.
In writing I have done some pieces that are published but not on the writers workshop wall. I have some good seeds in my seed book that I need to create into pieces. I am better at the writing part more that the reading like how I am a good catcher and not so good thrower.
My goals for next term are. 1keeping locker clean. 2 listen on the floor. 3 pick a better topic for passion project.
I really like this book. It is a really good book because it is a love story and is about luck. who would enjoy this book. everyone. well mainly girls but boys to. when I start to read this book and can not stop. it has fifty chapters but short ish. I also like it because it is a true story about a girl that doesn’t believe in luck well at least not the good kind. she believes in love.
In my passion project now, I am up to the editing stage. I am almost finished that. Then I have to film about the icing and then transfer that onto my laptop from my phone, Put it into moviemaker and edit that. I have found that the planning stage was a bit hard because I started late and that we were a little behind. I think the easy bit was to transfer the video because all I had to do was put the lead into my phone and my laptop agree to let my laptop go onto my phone. Then I selected the pictures and did the transfer.
We have just finished a book called boy over board by Morris gleitzman. The story genre is adventure and culture. The story is about a young boy and girl called Jamal and Bibi who live in Afghanistan. It is hard over there because there government won’t let there be schools and won’t let the girls outside without a parent. Than they moved to were Jamal and Bibi thought was Australia but it was really refugee camp. They caught a boat over to the refugee camp but not with their parents. They had lost them in a big crowd of people, and they went on separate boats. They met some people called rashida and Omar. They became close friends along the way with many similarities. Like Omar’s parents died and rashida is a girl, so she was especially close to Bibi.
This week in math, we are doing win at the fair. It is a game were you are at a far for school and you try to raise money. We had to come up with our own honeycomb board on maths 300. We had to try to make at least $300 or more. However, we had to let them get some money back as well. I put zero as the 3 top ones, 25 cents as the next to, then 50 cents for the next two, $4 and then $5 for the bottom two. We had to try this 1000 times. Then we just had to get up calculator and type in 1000 – (whatever number you got) I got 778 witch = 332. Therefore, that means that the school got $332 and the school lost $778. I think this worked out because we got over $300. but we also lost $778 witch is bad as well.
This is my 3rd post on my passion project. This is the planning phase.
In my passion project I have done my filming and on my way to uploading from my phone to my laptop.
I have faced some problems on the way like not knowing what I was going to do and panicking for when I will be filming and getting around to putting it onto my laptop.
However, to my surprise I am actually not that far behind. The way I have overcome these problems is by taking a few deep breaths and talking to my parents and waiting until the weekend to film.
Today in inquiry, we are progressing in our ted talks. We watched birke baehr. He was talking about how our food is being poisoned and how we can change it one kid at a time. He did not use anything but the remote to change their slides. He had a lot of pictures on his slide show. I think he could have had less pictures.
Today in inquiry we had our second ted talk lesson. It was in a boy called Richard Turere. He was talking about how to save lions and to make shore they do not kill that cattle. I think the massage is to never lose hope and fight for what’s right.
He got the message across to me by the pictures. He had a lot of eye-catching pictures that got me interested in what he was saying.
He had a remote with him so he could turn the slides from one to another. He didn’t have any other electronics with him witch I found very impressive because he memorized the hole thing.
I think he put the slides together well and timed it even better.
I like his way of doing his ted talk because he was very funny.
I like to read in my room because it is privet and no one comes in.
I like to whisper the words so it makes sense. It feels good when I read because when I start I cannot stop because I am hooked. I am currently hooked on this book that I am reading called Windfall. It is about this girl that does not believe in luck, well at least not the good kind. She believes in love.
Today in triple r, we watched a film about digital etiquette. Here are some words I learnt.
Netiquette = the rules online to keep us safe.
Flaming or flame wars = intending to start a fight online or cyber bullying.
Trolls = search the internet and leave bad comments.
Anonymous = you have a privet name or no name online.
Communication clearly = say what you need to say but clearly. For example if you are intending on sending a joke to someone and they take it the rong way. don’t do it in capital letters because it comes a cross as yelling.
and last but not least make shore that you send it to the right person.
Permission = get permission from a parent, teacher or guardian.
When you send a massage, you cannot take it back because it is now out there.
