Learning Post-Term 4 Week 8B

Hey readers,

Just the weekly learning Post;]

Maths- This week in Maths we continued on the garden project, I sorted out all the prices and I still have a good 3 thousand dollars left which is good. At the end of the class I was thinking about a pagola and even an egg chair, next maths session I will add up those prices and it will add up to about 8-9 thousand and I will be about right. I really enjoy this project because it is so fun especially with a budget, many boys have gone way over there budgets because they have spent it on really ridiculous like two soccer goals that cost five thousand dollars each and they expect their friends to still have money so they can get money from them. I am just trying to make my garden look really pretty and good so it will look really awesome as the final product. I have to get the correct measurements for the area of the garden I’m doing because it is apart of the criteria.

Inquiry-Today in inquiry Ellie and I finished our personal project and Emily and I also finished our iproject, Emily and I are having our feedback thing on Monday where all the class get in groups and they will watch our film and then give us constructive and positive feedback about our film. Once we have finished getting the feedback we will write a blog post about all the feedback that we got and also how much people loved and disliked our film. For Ellie and I’s personal project it is due on Friday morning but I think we have also already done that, we have a bit due this Friday but after that we don’t have anymore homework things just school related things that are quite easy and simple to do. It feels so great knowing that I have got it all done and I have a clear space in my head now, Ellie and I just need to Submit our personal projects in the submit folder which is being made tomorrow.

Writing-I got so many seeds done this week, in one of my seeds called ”Girl in the picture” I wrote so small and which meant that I got so much writing on the page. It was a really descriptive seed and it looked really good too. I also got a few other seeds done that were really descriptive and had many words which filled the page. This week I need to update the Writing log which is where you add in everything that you did that certain week, so last night I did five seeds so I put fives ticks under the seeds column and I also had a conference and I also published a piece so I put a tick under both of those columns too. The writing session today was probably like the 2 or 3 writing session because fortunately we only 11 days left [roughly] and then the year will be over.

Thanks readers, just saying this is my last learning post for this year because my teacher has been so nice and said we don’t have to do it next week because we have a few things due and we will be quite busy with our personal projects and our i projects. Thanks readers, and have a great end of year;]

Learning Post- Term 4 Week 7A

Hey readers,

Just the weekly learning post for you;]

Inquiry-This week in inquiry Ellie and I managed to finish all of our filming and all the voice overs. We re-shot the introduction and outro, because we thought we could improve a bit, the films are due next Friday on the 25th but I think Ellie and I can finish it by the end of this week if we set our minds to it. We have culled all of our footage so we literally just need to put the film in order of the voice overs and maybe just cut a bit of the film at the very ends of it. The hardest part was probably the introduction because we didn’t quite know where and how exactly to do it but we got there in the end, when we have finished our film I will put it om my blog for you guys to see.

Maths- This week in maths instead of maths groups, we stayed in our classes but just rotated to a different teacher. We went with Mrs Stafford and I really enjoyed what we did, it was a pyramid but the edges were on a 90 degree angle and you could see the outside blocks which kind of looked liked steps. We had to work out how many blocks were there altogether, I just multiplied the outsides to get the number of blocks on each level. I finished a lot quicker then the girls on my table so I decided to work with some of the boys who were at the same sage as me to figure out the harder questions.

English- This week in writing I probably had two of the most productive sessions ever, I managed to complete about 6 very long and descriptive seeds. I also managed to get three people to give me feedback on a writing piece so then I could go put it in the writing tray, Mrs Matthews had the conference with, I just needed to change a few words then I was lucky enough to publish the piece. I managed to finish publishing the piece in that writing piece, which was good.

Thanks for reading guys.

Learning Post- Term 4 Week 6B

Hey readers,

Here is my weekly Learning Post, for you.

English- This week in English/Writing, I managed to published two pieces. One was called Orangutans and it was from my zoo film, I just typed up the words on a word document and put a really emotive picture in the background of two Orangutans in a forest with half of the trees cut down. The other piece was called Sorry and it was about a woman driving in the night and how she sees a faint outline of something on the road but skids and hits it, then she soon finds out that it was a young girl. I published that piece by scrunching up a piece of paper from a notebook and then writing the date and the content of the writing on the page. My aim was to make it look like a diary entry.

Maths- This week in maths I went to the group where you would learn how to measure the perimeter of a shape, I found it quite simple and fun. It was really good because once we had learnt how to measure the perimeter properly we got a work sheet. The worksheet was quite simple but fun and there were a few trick questions that I managed to get, when we finished all the questions but q.1 we went to q.1 and then we had to get 5 class room objects, measure them with a ruler and and then add the sides to then get the whole perimeter.

Inquiry-This week in inquiry Ellie and I finished our personal project shotlist. The shotlist was quite long and it had about 12 shots, we had a lot of description, about what type of shot we are going to take, what we are talking about and also what we are filming. Next time we have inquiry Ellie and I are getting the teachers to go over our shotlist so that we will be able to tick the ”Planning” box.

Thanks readers ;]

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.

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 8B- Learning Post

Hey Readers,

Just the weekly learning post, for you ;]

Maths-This week in Maths I finished my Problem solving questions, they were both quite complicated. I worked the first question out in the time that we had during school, I was very happy and very sure of my answer, but i had no clue about the second, the only problem with the first question was that i knew the answer but I just had no clue on how to explain it. My dad is genius at maths so when I got home he helped me. I first told him what my answer was, he wrote it down with his own explanation and then he told me that I was correct. He had WIN_20160830_173931the best explanation, once he had explained it to me I wrote it out in my own words. For the second question he figured it out and then made me write it down, when i wrote it down he explained to me how the very, very complicated question worked, then again I wrote it down in my own words.

Inquiry- Yay today i finished my promotion film. I had done majority of the film on Monday but still had tonnes to do. Zoe was away yesterday and she had the Torquay film on her computer so Know-one in my group could completely finish there film. But today she was here and managed to get the rest of the film onto the USB. Finally I had all my film on the computer and I just had to add Torquay in an edit that, add the Music [to set the mood] then just mute all the videos. And luckily in the 1 and 2 period I managed to finish it.

English-Today in English we tidied up or seed book. By tidied I mean finish off the pieces that we started and never finished, add in text types and also take out the pages that just had drawings or scribbles in them. My pieces were all neat but I just had to finish the ones that I started and never got to. I was really happy and proud with what I got done in that period, I also started off a published piece and got the paper and decorated that and now just need to write.

Thanks for reading;]

Term 3 Week 7A- Learning Post

Hey Readers,

Here is my weekly learning post :]

Writing/English- Today it was my groups turn for a writing conference. I had written this piece before and was redoing from the feedback I got from the last conference and now it was already to re-conference. My writing piece is called ”how to be kind to friends” it is a procedural text, once I had read my piece the 4 people in my group gave me feedback on what they liked about it. Then I got the most important feedback like- maybe instead of having the same word in the same sentence change it so it doesn’t sound repetitive. I was really happy with my feedback, but unfortunately I didn’t have a chance to action it because the lunch bell went.

Inquiry- Today in inquiry we got into out promotion film groups and cut out all the bad and unneeded footage and photos, I had cut all our film from Supatramp. Then we had to convert it, to make it a correct file to put into an editing programme, the final step was to get an USB to put all our film onto. Except that was only a tiny bit of the footage from our whole group, we still had to convert all the footage Torquay, but then so did the people from the other classes in our group. On Thursday though we have a day where we are getting all the left over film onto the USB then we can start to film.

Math’s- Yesterday in Math’s we learnt about ordering when doing a complicated sum. E.g. 5+[6*7] How the teacher taught us was with one simple word ”BIDMAS” it stands for brackets, indices, division, multiplication, addition and subtraction except if it just addition and subtraction you can do it from just left to right like a normal sum. Once we had done a few examples with the teacher he gave us a worksheet to work out. I worked it out with my friend, some of the equations were a bit hard because we either did it the wrong way or found it hard to divide. But the BIDMAS helped us figure them out and we ended up getting all the answers correct:]

Term 3 Week 6B- Learning Post

Readers,

This week I will be doing one of the weekly blog posts ” The learning post” so here it is, this is what we did this week.

Inquiry- As you know we have a client from ” Geelong and Bellarine Tourism” and today just my class got to film because the place we went to ”Supa Tramp” was closed on Wednesday the day everyone else is going to there classes destination. Even though we went to ”Supa Tramp” yesterday we still get to go to Torquay tomorrow, In Torquay we are going to the beach, main street [ surf shops ] playground and 1 or 2 other places. Once we have got all our film done tomorrow we put it in a folder and also collect our other groups footage from the different locations. When we have got every single piece of film/photo we go onto Corel and make a film that can only be 90secs long, then the teachers will send 4 or 5 of the best one to ” Geelong and Bellarine Tourism” and the lady there will choose from them and put them on there website.

Maths- This week in maths we were focusing on ”Long/ formal division” it is a simple way to solve division questions/problems. This week I learnt how to solve long division questions and hard long division questions. [ 5-6 digits ] I went to one certain group so that I could learn the correct way of carrying in long division, the teacher made us write down 8 different long division problems and then figure them out. The first four problems had no remainders and the last four had remainders, I worked out the answers with 3 friends and I had some of those moments where you just go ” WOW I CAN’T COUNT TODAY” [does that ever happen to you?] but in the end we got all the answers and them all correct, good job girls!

 

English- In English I did two seeds one was about ”Life” I was writing about how people shouldn’t cheat and lie and take drugs because it doesn’t to anything good to you, your body and your family. I filled up about 3/4 quarters of the page with ideas that I wrote down. My second seed was inspired by my friend, she was writing down a piece called ”I didn’t mean it” something along those lines, so I wrote down the heading on my page ”Sorry” it is about this girl who was in her car at night and she hits a little kid and kills the kid and then drives off  because she didn’t want to blamed for the murder of a little kid.

Thanks for reading!
