This week was are last week of home learning and our second last full week, I have been doing:
This week we have started a new project if you want to call it that and it is called life in numbers. You need to choose a number of some sort and then using brackets, division etc you need to have about 10 or so I think, maybe more.
This week I finished my seed called clowns. We can’t publish any more pieces and I do not think we have any more WW sessions.
It was our last week of doing our little project and it had to be rendered and put on the K-drive. Our film was not what to do at school and we rode Harry’s bike around school and doing a lot of naughty stuff.
Hi everyone this is what I have been doing at school this week.
In Math’s groups this week the first one I went to was the area one and I did not quite get it so I went to it again on Wednesday and now I get it. In problem solving it was our last week of doing it for the year and this time we got 3 questions not 2 questions and they were really hard but they were good. In project math’s we did not have it because of swimming but we had one and we did a Math’s test and it was today.
This week in writer’s work shop I conference another piece and it is called Gorilla’s and we did it with Mr. Wade.
In inquiry we have started a new project and it is whatever you want to do but you can not do trick shots. Harry H, Callen and myself are doing not what to do at school and we started filming today.
What have you needed to do to prepare for your project?
For my i-project I have had to go to bunnies and gets some wheels and wood for my frame and today my dad is getting my 2 axels for the billy cart. Have all so had to ask Dad what days he is home so he can help me.
What types have you needed to include?
I do not have any particular shots that I am going to do and it is mainly going to be a wide shot so you can see me and the Billy cart in proses. But in my film for #planning and all of that I will be doing peace to cameras.
Why? What is the next step for you?
Tonight I am starting my i-project (even though I have already started the frame) and I am going to put it all together but not the axels and wheels and then I am going to pull it about and then paint it. The resion why I will pool it about is because I will know were all of the halls are.
In maths groups this week we only had one session because on Monday we had a public holiday and on Wednesday I learnt about the perimeter of irregular shapes. In problem solving we have our last three questions and they look pretty hard from having a little look and it is due next Thursday morning.
So far this term I have done 4 published pieces and they have been Grandpa’s farm ute, World War One, 25/05/1015 and Depression. I also started a seed called clowns.
In inquiry this week we have a new project that we are working on and you could go in groups of 1 to 3 people and you sort of need to make a film about whatever you want but you can do no trick shots. Harry H, Callan and myself are doing what not to do at school.
This week has been a busy week because we have got a lot of things due and we also have causal clothes on Friday for the Aboriginal and we need to bring a gold coin or more.
What have I been doing?
In Math’s groups this week we had to have our angle project due by Wednesday and we had a little time to work on it in Math’s groups on Wednesday for half an hour and the other half an hour we had the Math’s post-test about angles. In project Math’s we are still doing algebra but we have started to do patterns.
In Writers work shop I conferenced two pieces and they are good to publish and I have already down it and they are called 25/5/1915 and Depression. Here they are:
Hopping of the boat
Dodging the Turkeys bullets
BANG, down I go
Depression is dark Black
It taste horrible
I smell the anger, why am I going through this
I see everyone staring and looking at me
I hear people talking behind my back
It is messing with my head
In Litres we do not have it this week because Mr. Wade junior is on the year 4 camp and Miss Williams is away somewhere.
In inquiry this week on Wednesday we had to have our first draft due for our Zoo film and then we got some feedback and went and fix it up and our final Zoo draft is due on Friday and we need to put it on the K drive.
Mathematics – Problem Solving
In maths groups this week I learnt about the angles and what they are called. They are acute, reflex, straight and obtuse. In project maths we are learning about algebra and I am slowly starting to get it. In problem solving on Thursday we had to hand in question 1 and 2. Miss Torney showed my book in front of the class.
English – Writers Workshop – Seeds | Drafts | Edits – Writing Log –
In writers workshop on Wednesday we did some poems with Mr Wade and I did my two about a beer bottle and depression and I put it in for conference. I also started a seed called danger in a fight.
Inquiry – Zoo Script
In inquiry this week we had to start wrapping up our first draft that is due on Tuesday and we also had to do our voice overs. And the people who lost the cameras had to do their piece to camera in the green screen.
13th November 2016
For my first reading rant I am going to write about my last book I read and it is called NED KELLY’S SECRET and the author is Sophie Masson.
In the story Ned is the second main author and the main other is a boy called Hugo and he was traveling in Victoria. He was with his Dad and they are from England and Hugo’s Dad is writing a book about the gold rush. When they first got to Australia they got ambushed by Harry Powers and later down the track Hugo helped Ned’s sister get out of trouble in a shop for touching something and that’s how Ned and Hugo met. On one of the days they were there Hugo’s dad went somewhere to learn about the gold rush and Hugo went for a ride and stopped to do something. Two of Ned’s uncle’s were going to do something with his horse but Hugo saw them and stood up to them and they started getting angry and then Ned saw them and settled his uncle’s down. After that Ned’s house was not that far away so Ned took him there and introduced Hugo to his family. Later on Hugo heard that Ned had gone to court and goal for ambushing a group of Chinese. A little while later Hugo went to see Ned in goal, he kept on bringing him food and Hugo eventually got the truth out of him. Ned did ambush the Chinese people and was Harry Powers off sider and at the start Ned was in the bush holding Harry’s horse whilst he ambushed the Hugo’s group. Whilst Ned was in goal Harry Power got caught and was hung for all of his charges for being a robber.
The book was about Ned’s life but it was more fiction as it was a bit made up. The majority of it was real.
I really like the book but it could have been a bit better if it was a bit more realistic. What I also liked was that it flowed well and didn’t jump steps so it was easy to follow. I also learnt a bit of history about Ned and how he lived.
My two favourite people in the book were Ned and Hugo because they were the main characters. I didn’t like Ned’s uncles because they were not honest and in the book it seemed like they were a bit dodgy.
I would recommend this book to people who like Australian history and adventure.
In Math’s groups this week, in one of them we did a math’s pre test and it was only a page long and it was about shapes and angles. In Problem Solving on Thursday we got section B and question 1 and 2 that are due next Thursday. In project math’s we are learning about algebra.
For Writers Workshop I finished a draft about homework and I also did a haiku called 25/4/1915
This week for inquiry we went to the Melbourne zoo for a filming excursion and the resion why we went there is because we need to make a film about an endanger animal and I choice the lion and when we went there the lions were sleeping on top of a little hill but we still got some good shots.
This term we are starting our third I-project and I am doing teaching other people how to make a Billy-cart.
What is the purpose of your project?
Last term I did a pretty week i-project and I wanted to do something good and I also wanted to build something and I want a Billy-cart so I decided to make a Billy-cart.
What is the message you are communicating?
Teaching people how to make a Billy-cart
Who is your project for?
For my class mates, my teacher Miss Torney and any other people who want to watch it.
What are you looking forward to?
Seeing what the final product is and see how it ends out I am also look ford to testing it and seeing if it is well build not week.
I did a poster on my last book I read called Friend or Foe, I have written what it is about on the poster and what I liked about it.
Sorry it is a bit blury.
