# Learning Post- Term 4 week 2B

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.

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

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 amazing 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

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 ly, 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 ;]

# Choice Day- Term 3 Week 10

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 hand]. 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

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

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

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

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 the 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.

# 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 something 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.
