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.

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. :]

 

 

 

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 – RVE country post

Hey there,

So this week I finished my second country for our RVE project, my country is Jamaica. I am going to type down some questions about the country, down below.

What are the differences between Australia and Jamaica- Well in Australia when you met someone you tend to say nice to meet you ”John” or whatever the persons name is but in Jamaica they would say there last name like nice to meet you Mrs. Smith. The Jamaicans will call them by there last name until a very good friendship is formed.

What are the similarities Between Australia and Jamaica- There greeting is also very similar to ours, instead of doing a tribal dance or WIN_20160829_195607something like that they just give each other a firm handshake with a kind smile with very good eye contact. And that is how the average Australians greet each other too.

If you lived in Jamaica what would be the interesting parts and the challenging parts- The challenging is that the majority of there food is there crops like fish, spices, vegetables, animals. They are very nature friendly so they take only what they need. I also find that interesting to because on the flip side you would be having all these amazing cuisines and you know where it is all coming from, a lot of there meals are influenced from there ancestors and the indigenous people who lived on the land way before them.

So that is my country for RVE I hope you learnt something interesting or new.

Term 3 Week 8B-Reading Post

WIN_20160829_170436HELLO!

I’m so sorry it turned out quite blurry, but that is the only way I can you. :[

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:]

Thanks for reading!:]

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!
