Choice Day- Term 3 Week 10

Hey readers,

Today I will be talking to you about what we did yesterday at choice day. So first the teachers gave us a list with 8 numbers and at the back it had a list of activity’s [Mosaic, Sewing, Knitting and so on] My number 1 was mosaic and my number 8 was Sewing, and of course I got Sewing.

The day came, and lets just say I wasn’t particularly happy with Sewing. I had a few friends doing it with me, but I really would of preferred Mosaic.

First we had to find a shape that we liked [ I chose a flower ] then I had to draw multiple flowers on the back of paper that I liked, so that I could then put them back to back and sew them. In the end I cut out 16 flowers altogether, but they were going back to back so basically there were only 8 flowers. It was a bit hard and boring cutting out 16 flowers but it was fun doing it was friends and kind of being free with how we wanted to do it.

Finally I was up to the sewing part, luckily we were doing it with a machine [ It wouldn’t of gone too well if I did it by handwin_20160916_093556]. My first attempt I just used the scrap paper because it was my first time and there was no point ruining my flowers, lets just say it didn’t work very well because the string ran out and then the whole stitching stuffed up, but then I got the hang of it.

I was excited and nervous when it came to doing my flowers because I didn’t want to ruin my hard work. But after my first flower I got the hang of it and the flowers came out really well, Mrs Watson said it was amazing for my first try and I was really proud of it.

In the end I was happy that I went to the sewing because I never would of learnt how to Sew [Probably], and I was really happy with how I went and how it turned out. Choice day was very fun.

Thanks for reading, readers I hope you enjoyed my post about Choice day because I really enjoyed telling you. :]

 

Promotion Film Reflection

Hello readers,

This term we started a promotion film, Geelong by kids for kids. First we got an email from a lady called Tracey who works at a place who promote the Geelong and the Bellarine, she asked us if we wanted to all make a film for her so that they can put it on their website. Of course we wanted to, so we all got to work, we got into small groups and wrote down a list of places where kids like us would love to go in the Geelong and Bellarine area. Once everyone had written down some great places the teachers culled it down to about 4 areas  with a few places at each. 6A- Torquay- Supa-Tramp, Skate park, Beach and park 6B- Waurn Ponds- Leisure Link, Balyang Sanctuary, 6C- Geelong- Geelong waterfront, skate park and Ferris wheel. Then we all got into a group of 6 [ 2 people from each class] so that we could use the film from each of our partners class. Finally the teachers had everything set and we were ready to go, on Tuesday 6A were the only class to go somewhere because Supa tramp was only open on Tuesday. Once they had comeback from there they saved all there film onto a computer before the film gets lost. Then on Wednesday all the classes set off to there designated places, we all went to a place for around 10-15 minutes depending on what/how big the place is/was. After a great day with all of our filming and everything sorted and completed, we had to save all of our footage on our computers, unfortunately the K-Drive was completely full. Luckily the teachers managed to get 12 USB’s for each group, so it was really easy for everyone in each group to get there footage together and ready. But before we could put all the film on an USB we had to cull and cut all of the bad footage or the last two seconds at the end of a film.

When we had cut all of our film and we were really happy with what we had, we were ready to edit on Corel, it took a very long time to get all the footage on to Corel because it is a very laggy program. When we were happy with our first draft, all the year 6’s went around to everyone’s computer and give a person some feedback so t the en of the session each year six would have five comments. Then we re-edited it with the comments that we got, finally wen we had used all the feedback and were happy with he film, we went and commented on peoples films again. When we had our sheet with all the feedback e gave it t the teachers so that they can chose a few of the best films to send off to the client.

Even if my film doesn’t get chosen, I still think it was a great experience. Here is my completed film⤵

Term 3 Week 9A- Learning Post

Hello,

My last learning post for the term :[

Maths- Today we had a maths test, it was a post test. A post test is where you have a test [ pre-test ]  that majority of the class won’t know much about. Then you learn about the things in the test for a month or two, then once your teachers are sure that you have learnt enough they give you the test again [ post-test ] and see how much you have improved and how much you pay attention in class. I thought I went really well in the test, I am so happy that I checked over it at the end, because one of my answers was wrong.

Inquiry-This week in inquiry we rendered a draft for our promotion film, and we will be sharing it with a group of people to get some feedback because that way we can make the film even better than it is. Today I went around to a few people and asked them to watch my film and give me some feedback. I am quite pleased with the feedback I got and also how I responded to it, but tomorrow I am hoping for a bit more to make my film just that bit better.

Writing-In English today my conference group had a conference. Lukas was the only person who had a piece ready to share, he had a really funny piece about Nurofen and Strepsils. After we had our conference we all went onto silent writing, the other week I was starting a seed about the Eiffel tower. I managed to finish the picture just not any writing, so today I started and finished the seed. I thought it was very descriptive and I chose good words and sentence. When I finished that we still had 20 mins so I started another seed, it was about a girl who went missing and 1 year later she turned up in a picture in her family home. I have tonnes of ides in the piece and I really like the idea of the piece.

Thanks readers, [ last post ] hope to see you again soon.

Term 3 Week 9A- Reading Log

Hey Readers,

Just letting you know this will be my last reading log for the term, seeing as next week is the last week of school [ and the week only goes for 3 days ]. Anyway, this week our challenge was to make a type of advertisement for our book, the advertisement could be a Magazine a billboard, those kinds of things. So I chose to do a magazine. I chose it because I thought it would be cool, and that I could make it like one of those teen girl magazines. [ It girl or one of those magazines ]

Here WIN_20160905_204934is my magazine that I drew……… it is a bit blurry but I will type up the words for you.

Reading, Reading, Reading

Here are some of the popular books that girls love to read. And today the book that I am reviewing is…….. QUEENIE.

QUEENIE- Rating ❌❌❌❌✖ 4/5 stars Written by Jacqueline Wilson Illustrated by Nick Sharrat

Queenie is a really sad, happy, dramatic, lets just say it is very EMOTIONAL. That’s what i enjoy about this book , it makes you feel all these different emotions.

Queenie is so descriptive, ever time a character or something is described I can just picture the person [or whatever it is that they are describing] in my head.

All in all, Queenie is a fantastic book, and I would say to all tween girls and boys to read this amazing book, it’s a ”MUST READ”!! xx Reading, Reading, Reading.

Thanks readers I hope you enjoyed my last reading blog for the term. :]
