Learning Post- Term 4 Week 4B

Hello readers,

This week I will be doing my weekly ”Learning Post”.

Writing- Today in writing, two groups had a conference. Unfortunately it wasn’t my group; so I just worked on a seed, but then I couldn’t think of an idea so I was very stuck for a while. I asked Mr W [Jr.] to help me think of an idea and he said I just needed to look back at my  other seeds and then I would get an idea. Sure enough I went past one of my pieces called ”Sun” an I decided to do a piece about Space, because the sun has a link to space. Now when I am stuck for ideas I will definitely know what to do, look through all my old pieces, then I will have an idea.

Inquiry- This week our first draft for our zoo film was due on Tuesday. I remembered to do mine so I was proud of myself and what I had actually achieved. In first period we got into a massive group and the teachers discussed our task. We had to get our film up and then with the piece of paper they handed us we had to write our name on it and then go around giving feedback on that persons paper, and tick certain boxes that the film included. I accidentally put the wrong film in, it was pretty much the same it just didn’t have the music, and it was funny because the only bad feedback I got was add music. When we got to go back and edit our films and improve with the feedback, I got my other film and then made it perfect. When it was perfect we were aloud to put it into the final draft for our teachers to go over on, on Friday. I rendered my final copy and put it into the K-Drive ready for my teacher to access.

Maths- Lately in maths we have been working on Algebra, at first I found it very, very difficult but I asked my dad to help me get better at it. But this week we did this harder thing in Algebra with two mystery numbers, which I have also found slightly confusing, but slowly managing to figure out. I want to completely know how to do it, so… I am going to do some more with my genius dad.

Thanks readers.

Learning Post Term 4 week 3A

Hey there,

Today I will just be doing my weekly learning post.Image result for angles

Maths- Yesterday in maths we got a test result back on one of our angles tests. I knew I wouldn’t have gone well with the measuring side of it because I had never used a protractor before. Then we were to go sign up in maths group in the thing we needed to improve the most, and mine was measuring [for a maths lesson at the end of the day] Finally the end of the day came, it was time for maths groups, Miss T explained it really well. Once I had done a few practices, I was pro.

Inquiry-Today in inquiry we continued on working on our zoo films. I was lucky enough to finish my whole voice over, the unfortunate thing is…………….. none of my photos or videos from the zoo were going into Corel. [The program/website that we edit videos on] I tried to make them into Mp-4 but it wasn’t working. I am going to work at school tomorrow and try and get them in Corel, but if I can’t I will be able to ask one of my peers or a teacher.

Writing- Today in writing it was my groups turn for our fortnightly conference. I had one piece of writing in the folder called sorry, so I was going to be conferencing that writing piece. First a few other people in the conference group read out loud their own writing pieces, then it was turn for mine.I read my piece aloud, [Sorry] it was a bit of a dark piece, it was about a older girl running over a younger girl in the middle of the street, at night. I got all my comments about everything that my peers liked, then it was time for the most important bit, the construction, i just needed to explain kind of who the girl was and go a bit deeper with what she was doing. So in the last 30mins of writing I completed that piece, ready for a conference in 2wks.

Thanks readers. ;]

Learning Post- Term 4 week 2B

Hey readers,

Inquiry-On Monday all of the year 6’s went to the Melbourne Zoo, very early in the morning. It was all for our animal talks, one of the main instructions about the talk is to have a piece to camera in your film [talking to the camera with a video of you] and we also had to have our own videos and things of our animal instead of getting it off the internet. I really enjoyed the experience of going and seeing all the animals and I think it will be really good that we are creating this talk.win_20161013_172827

Maths-Today in maths all the year 6’s started our problem solving again, I managed to write down both of my questions quite speedily, so I was able to go straight onto the questions. I worked with my friend Ellie, and we managed to get the first answer quite quickly, I feel like the more we talk about the question the more I understand what I have to do to get the answer. [Stratergising]  And for the second question I wasn’t able to complete until I got home, this question was really quite hard, but I knew I had to do one thing to know where I had to go.

Thanks readers, this week I was not able to do writing because I was away.

#Planning// iproject// Term 4 week 2B

Hi there Readers,

Emily and I have decided that we will now most likely be making cake pops instead of our first idea, but we will still be keeping the ashotlists-ppmazing drink. We have also be discussing and planning catching up over a few of the next weekends so we can film, and things like that. We have also started talking about our shotlist that we must create for the film to have some flow. A shotlist is where you basically script your whole film and plan what you are going to do throughout your film, and you usually also write down what type of shots you are planning on doing. The shots might be a P.T.C which is where you talk to the camera about what you are doing or something about your ideas. You could do many, any shots, but there is one that I thought might be very cool for Emily and I’s project is, an overhead shot, it is basically a birds eye view, so it would see us in the kitchen from above, like a giant looking down at us [but not a giant.

Thanks readers, that is one of my weekly iproject posts for you;]

#Description // iproject post // #1

Hi readers,

This week we are starting our third iproject, except for this one we can work with a partner which makes it more fun. I am working with jjjcapturely, and we are thinking of baking something delicious, we went onto a website and came up with an amazing ”Choc chip cookie inside a pretzel”. And of course you have to have a drink so we are making a very cool ”Caramel Milkshake” [in the recipe it says add vodka but we are not going to] I am very excited because I have never actually made either of these delicious things, I don’t quite know how it will turn out, but I am praying that it works the first time because really who wants to do it more than once. It will be a bit difficult going to each others houses and organising it, but we will make it work. FOR FOOD!!! We are thinking of catching up on two different occasions, one for the actual cooking and two, for making the film/video and editing. Thanks readers ;]
