learning post | week 7A

Maths

In maths we just did revision so I got a friend to wright a random two numbers on a whiteboard and I found the highest common factor of those two numbers.

English

In masterclass Mia and I used a peace I wrote in writing and added to it so we have a new peace about fire, we have added a set and we had an idea to make it from an animal’s perspective.

inquiry

In inquiry I have been working on my ted script, the first draft is due tomorrow. My ted talk is about why family is so important.

reading log| week 7

Hello this is this weeks reading log 😉the-girl-from-snowy-river

Poetry: Choose a character, setting, event or whole book as inspiration to create a poem. Use any style you like such as free verse, rhyming, haiku or acrostic.

I am still reading the girl from snowy river,

In my book she has broken her back and just got a weal chair for her birthday, her friend just got back from war (world war 1) and has introduced her to his new “friend” who was a nurse at the war. Andy her older brother also came back from war but didn’t come home till later because he needed time to himself. before she did her back she did an amazing horse race to round up brumby’s at a brumby muster. but this poem is about the setting and from her brother Andy’s point of you.

My book is set at snowy river on “the rock farm”, Onto the poem:

It takes me a moment for me to take it all in,

the red dust, the smooth rocks, the slim river and tall trees

its nice to be back to home sweet home

no guns, bombs or trenches just the familiar home.

It’s not very good but it’s all I have. ?

 

My learning post| week 6B

English

In English this week I have been filling my writing log. the reason we keep a writing log is to keep track of what we do in our writing time. I didn’t realize how much writing I acutely did and I find writing and it is a good way of organizing what I am doing. I also edited and published my “It” peace.

Inquiry

in inquiry I have changed my topic from “camping” to “family” and I have started my script. I think I will use a story from camping as my “story” part, so I have basically just started my TED talk script.

Maths

in maths groups on Friday I did Miss Torney’s guru session. the focus was relationships between fractions decimals and percentages. We did an activity were you set 4 cards up in a square and each card has a price on it one had $100 another had $120, $150 and $200. then you had to set up arrows that had things like 50%less on one side and double on the other so you would put them between $100 and $200. Sorry some of the photo got chopped off but $100 was under $200 and $120 was under $150.WIN_20160520_151601

my learning this week| week 4B

Maths

in one of the maths groups session I learnt (re caped) how improper fractions work (+we got to use pizza ??) so for example 1  1/4  is also 5/4 it’s just a quicker way of writing it. A way off working it out is say for 5/3 you have to think 3/3 are 1 + the 2 from the rest of the 5 it would be 1 2/3

English

In English this week I worked on a peace called “It” its about a beast and someone really scared of it. The beast is called it. I didn’t describe the “It” so you can paint your own picture in your own head.

Inquiry

In inquiry this week we did the ted talk analysis sheets. we analyzed videos some we chose others the teachers chose for us. When we had analyzed the video we filled in a sheet about it.

hello hear is this weeks personal post this week ;),

This weekend (Saturday) was united week for the netball club I play for. On Friday night Mia and I hade a sleepover at Mia’s house. On Saturday morning I had to be at ammos by 8:30 and because we hadn’t planed the sleepover (other than after school on Friday) I didn’t have my netball stuff with me. we had to leave Mia’s at about 8:10 and I was still a few min’s late ;( . My game of netball was a bit of a rip-off because I only got to play 1/4  of it. After both our games were finished we just hung out at the club. 🙂

personal post| week 4B

Hi,

For my personal post this week I am going to tell you about netball, I play netball for ammos and we versed Newcomb. We won 37 to 9. They weren’t acutely that bad they just couldn’t shoot and then we got the rebounds. I got into the A team but at the start of the season I only played ½ a game but now I am playing ¾ of a game and enjoying the ¾ of the game I’m playing.
