Term 3 Week 8B-Passion Project

Hi readers,

 

This week I will be telling you what I am up to in my passion project.IMG_1730

So far I have finished all my filming, I have edited it on Corel now I am up to doing a voiceover over all of my film, I have to do a voiceover because the sound on my computer isn’t good at all. The voiceover is going to be the hardest part because there is so much editing and talking involved. But I am just going to do it in little parts because if I recorded it all in one go I might get to the end and be going really well and stuff up on one word and redo the whole voiceover. I have made a script so I kind of know what to say when I’m doing the actual voiceover but it is going to be hard knowing when to talk and at the right time. Even though I have a script I might want to change the word.

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!

Term 3 Week 6B- Reading/ Preparation for book week

  2. Who used to read it to you the most? Why? I read it to myself quite a few times, I got the book when I was 8 or 9 so I was very capable of reading to myself and also because I absolutely love her and hurdles.
  3. What age were you when you first heard the book / story? Well I was in a local ”TARGET” and we were at the cash register, and I saw the book on the shelf, [ it was in early December only 2-3 weeks from Christmas] and I begged and begged mum for it but she said no, wait till Christmas. And on Christmas I got it, I read it that day, when I was 8-9.
  4. Who is your favourite character and why? Obvious my favourite/ only character is Sally, she is just so inspirational and she never gives up.
  5. How did the book make you feel? It made we want to go outside get some hurdles and run till my legs would break off, I was just so inspired by her and I wanted to be just like her and I copied the things she did and said in the book.

Term 3 Week 6B- Passion project

Hey there,

This week I am giving you an update on how my passion project is coming along, I will be telling you what has challenged me, what I have enjoyed and where I am at.

I just started my film tonight, I had all my ingredients [which I made my mum get] and I put them in there bowls. I was all ready to film,[ I didn’t think the watchers would really want to see me putting the ingredients in] on the recipe it didn’t say how much food die I had to put in that was my first mistake too much food die. Second mistake, the second mistake I made was instead of putting 3 teaspoon of water in I put 3 table spoons, and that made the mixture really wet. The mixture is meant to be dampish so you can make a ball but not wet. The third mistake I made was blow drying all the mixture, which stunk out the whole kitchen.

The best part of the experience was went I put the wet mixture under the tap, it fizzed and popped just as it should, I also have a good idea now, to put glitter in to make the bath bomb really shiny when it is fizzing away in the bath.

So now I am up to, filming another time and trying to get it right, I know what to do and now what not to do. I hope you enjoyed my explanation of me making bath bombs and stuffing up 3 times.

Switzerland’s Culture

WIN_20160815_095638 This week we had shared our countries culture that most of us finished, my country was Switzerland, and now I will be comparing some things and telling you some things about Switzerland.

What are the differences? well Switzerland are very big with there timing and there work, there work is very praiseworthy, and with there timing they are very precise. In Australia know one really likes to be late and everyone tries not to be late, but in Switzerland it is extremely rude.

What are the similarities? Majority of Switzerland’s  religion is Roman Catholic but a lot of them stayed Catholic, and a lot of people in Australia are Catholic, also with all the other different religions.

If you lived in this country what would you find most interesting and challenging? If I lived in Switzerland I would find the timing most interesting, because they seem very precise and it is very, very rude to be late. I would also find the timing and the work very challenging because there work tends to be very praiseworthy.

 

Term 3 Week 4B-Learning Post

Hello there,

This is a learning post, so I will telling you about the normal subjects that I do every week in class with my homeroom teacher [majority of the time].

English- Marmalade-Bread-Butter-Knife-Plate……. these were the ingredients that my teacher brought in to help our class make a procedural text. I was chosen to write down all the instructions that the class gave to my teacher, and I literally had to write down every single word that they said, ex- um… like… At the end of all the instructions we ended up having 13 instructions, the bread all torn apart, and marmalade absolutely smothered all over the plate, so we kind of understood that you need to put in lots and lots of detail to a procedural text.

 

Maths- Today in maths I was really happy because we had maths groups, and I had chosen Mrs. Stafford’s group and we were working with multiplying really high numbers using the trading and carrying strategy, where you put the numbers on top of each other, well I learnt how to do that with multiplying three and two digit numbers. I was really proud of myself, because I got most of my answers correct except for this one that I forgot to trade and my teacher helped me, and explained it really clearly.

 

Inquiry-In inquiry we were working on our shot list for when we go on our excursion and film for the ”Bellarine and Geelong Tourism” Capturewe had to write what type of shot we wanted like, mid shot, if we wanted a GoPro and all those types of shots. Then we had to write how long we needed for each shot/place, next we had to write the places that we were thinking of going to and then finally what we would actually be doing in the shot. It was just kind of like a small plan for all of our filming and things.

Thanks for reading readers.

Term 3 Week 4B- Reading Log

Hi there,

This week I will be……Developing a Narrative: Choose a fiction book you have read recently. Think about the stages of this narrative – its Orientation, the Complication and the Resolution. What happened in each stage?

I have just finished reading a book called ”The girl on the train” It introduces the main characters, and there normal daily things especially what Rachel does because she is the main character. Then it gets into how she is so jealous of Meagan and Scott because they are the most perfect couple, and Meagan is so beautiful and skinny and Rachel used to be like that when she was married to Tom. Then one day Meagan is with another man not her darling Scott, but this other man. Then it goes on to how Rachel keeps on calling leaving notes and voicemails to Tom and Anna, soon later Meagan goes missing, of course Rachel’s first guess is Meagan has been kidnapped be mystery man, but after the police discover that it was not him, they move straight to Scott Meagan’s husband because in 95% of the time it was the husband, the boyfriend or the lover/affair guy. Rachel becomes very close with Scott after telling him that Meagan had someone else and that Rachel loves/loved some else. After a while Scott gets angry and he realizes that they will never find Meagan, and was Rachel just making it all up for attention because she had no one in her life to love but herself. Then all these memories come back to Rachel the night she was out [ drunk] Rachel went missing, she had fell over and Tom came and picked her up, but when her memory comes back Tom didn’t pick her up. Tom got into a car with Meagan, after all her memories come back she realizes that her dear Tom must of been the one who killed Meagan [she wouldn’t be missing for that long, would she?] Rachel goes to confront Tom, and he admits of course, but also holds her hostage. Tom nearly killed Rachel but she protected herself and ended up killing him, the police finds the body, because Tom told Rachel, not knowing that she would live to see the light of day again.

 

Thanks for reading those LONG stages, I hope you got an understanding of the book.

 

 

Term 3 Week 4B- Passion project/ iproject

Hello there readers,

this week I will be working a bit more on my plan of attack for my iproject.

Teachers explanation-

This fortnight you need to have a confirmed idea/project. You are now require to make a Plan of Attack for your project.

What to do, When to do it, and How to do it.

So right now, I will be confirming, that for my iproject I will be making bath bombs.

My Plan- I’m thinking that I will first film and talk about the ingredients for the Bath bombs, so I will make them and of course I will have a few trials and errors. I will probably try the bath bombs on 3 different occasions, with lots of different colours because they are really quite easy to make. I’m hoping I might be able to start in week 6A, I would love to start next week but unfortunately I can’t because I am away. You only really an oven, some ingredients to make the bath bombs, and a cupping thing that makes the bath bombs really round. By my second or third time I am hoping to be really good at them, good enough to make one for the whole class, and I will use quite a few colourful colours, to make the bath bombs look really pretty and colourful. I might use my sister to be my helper if I am aloud to, I am going to get a lot of film so I have much to work with instead of very little.
