iproject (term 3) week 1-2

WIN_20160310_201938This team I think I am just going to make bracelets but instead of making the same one every time I am going to be trying heaps of different designs because last time that got a bit boring. I think I would also like to make my own bracelet. I already know the basis to making a bracelet but would like to extend my knowledge.

Maths

In maths we have a project were we have to make a short film about a 3D shape with a story line. It has to include a 2D net of the shape. A 2D net of a 3D shape is were you take apart a 3D shape and connect the 2D shapes in a way that if you fold it back up you get the shape you started with. it also has to include how many faces, edges and vertices your shape has.

Inquiry

This week in inquiry we made mystery film. I have an other post on that so if you want to know more about that look at that post. 😉

English\masterclass

In masterclass I went to the Guerue session. In the Guerue session we looked at ways we can publish our writing and things we can use. 😉 Using these ways I think I should have no trouble getting my message across to the audience.

My learning so far this year

  • What have you been learning about in Inquiry?  So far in inquiry I have learnt about photography, film and we have also started audio. In photography I have learnt lot of rules I will put my power point in another  post when I workout how. in film I have learnt how to make a film and an interesting fact about film making is that 60% is prep, now that’s a lot. in audio I have learnt about all the different types of microphones like the shot gun mic it is used to aim the sound in the direction of what you are filming so you don’t get all the noise from the camera crew.
  • What have you been learning about in English?

In English I have learnt how to write a seed in more depth. I have learnt how to use commas and how they can change the meaning of a sentence.

What have you been learning about in Maths?

in maths I have learnt about roman numerals, e.g. I=1  V=5   X=10. you have to put the bigger number at the start unless you are writing say 4 were there is another letter that means one more than the number you are writing so you would wright IV

What have you been learning about in your specialists subjects?

In music I have been learning how to play keyboard. I am not very good but I found G. In drama we have been learning about improvisation and theater sports.

I love to read. I read a bit too long sometimes but in the end I manage to put my book down. I enjoy reading history books, fantasy, school stories and Roald Dahl (if that counts as a genre). I go off and on what I like out of those, at the moment I am enjoying history books from around the 1500.

Setting Analysis: Write about the setting found in one of the books you read this week. Use adjectives to describe it. Have you ever been in a similar setting? When and why?

 

This week I started a new book. It is called Elizabeth and is about princes Elizabeth.This book is set in 1544 and is written in diary form. Elizabeth has been banished to a country house at Hatfield. From the description Hatfield seemed like a nice place but her banishment has just been lifted and they moved back to Hampton court. they haven’t been at court long but I picture it as a massive pales with a pretty big quad in the middle.51CXrzT0EwL[1]

138434-ml-869640Plot Analysis: Write about a brief plot outline on one of the books you have read this week. If you haven’t finished a book this week record the events so far and then predict how the book might end.

My book is Lady Jane Grey a Tudor girl from the 15th century. King Henry v111 has died and her cousin Edward is crowned King. She is pushed around as her parents please to try to get her closer to the throne. her parents forced her marry The fourth son of the duke of Northumberland. that is what I have read so far but from another book I know that she becomes a queen for 2 days then gets executed.

what surprises me about this story is that she would hate to be queen from the other book I read it seemed like she was the one who tried to become queen just so she would be queen. from that book I thought she was just nuts, her parents did a good job of hiding what they did.

Character Analysis: Write about a character from one of the books you read this week. Include personality aspects, physical attributes, what you liked/ didn’t like about them as well as an event this character was involved in.

Physical attributes

My book is written in diary form so I don’t know what she looks like. The main character is called Lady Jane Grey. The story is set in the 15th century. I imagine that she wears long pretty dresses made of maybe velvet with some gold on them. She probably wears expensive jewelry and possibly a real fur coat. This is because she comes from a very rich family. It doesn’t have a description of her looks because it is a diary.

Personality

Lady Jane Grey is usually kind but sometimes she has a hot temper. Her parents want her to be Queen but she doesn’t want to, when her mum hears her say she doen’t want to marry her cousin and become Queen, she doesn’t speak to her for a whole week which must be pretty hard for her. Also she hates her parents because they treat her very harshly and when she is sent to live with other people (witch happens a lot) she notices how much nicer they are.

 

what I did and didn’t like about my character

I like how she doesn’t complain about anything even when her parents try to make her queen. I don’t like it how she just hates her parents and cant talk to them about anything.

 

an event she was involved in

well her dad is a duchess and her cousin is King so she is involved in lots of roil events. She doesn’t know this yet but she is more involved than she wants to be.
