SEA TURTLES!

This term our writing has been around sea turtles, first we watched a video so we could learn about sea turtles then we made a plan, so we knew what we were going to write about, then we started our drafts.
here is the video that we watched to inspire us

here is my writing:
Sea turtles…
Today we are going to be talking about sea turtles! Sea turtles have been around for 150 million years!! They have been alive since dinos infact they are connected to dino’s!


Okay so let’s start with eggs.The female sea turtles are ables to start laying eggs and 20 years old.They lay them on a beach in a hole that they dig!They lay around 1000 eggs at a time!But 800/1000 hatch!And only 400 make it to the water! THe cause of that are crabs seabirds and pollution!The eggs are about the size of a ping pong ball!


Now shall we talk about growing up.sea turtles have a very hard life.Infact so hard that only 2 out of 1000 eggs that the female lay make it to breeding age!(That’s a 96% that they will make it)
I sure wouldn’t like to be a sea turtle!

ET REO SAMPLE 2016

Description:Every Monday the students who choose not to go to Kapa Haka go to ET REO were we learn about the maori language.At the moment we are learning about foods and objects you would have on a dinner table here is a picture that tells us what they are in maori

We have also been learning a song all in Maori by Stan Walker.We thought it would be easier to learn it if we knew what it means so two people got one line of the song and using the Maori dictionary we found out what it meant.

Then we were given a task to create something to help us remember the table words in Maori.I made flash cards with Sophie B,Tabitha C,Charlotte H and Rebecca O!Here is a photo of our flash card...



Feed forward/Feed forward:I think you are doing really well learning the song and I think your getting better every day.

Evaluation:I think I have done great at learning the table foods but I could work on trying a bit harder on the song and even if I get some of the lyrics wrong I am learning!

JAPANESE AND DRAMA SAMPLE 2016

description:Every Thursday the year sixes split up into two groups and for the first half of the afternoon one group goes to drama with Nic and one group goes to Japanese with Kelly.

Japanese:

In Japanese with  Kelly Sensai we have been learning about the Japanese language.I have learnt how to introduce myself  in Japanese and how to ask how people are doing a reply basically i have learnt how to start a conversation.At the moment we are learning about body parts and how to say that some part of my body is sore in a reply to how are you.Next Wednesday we are going IPU (International pacific university)
and we will be seeing real Japanese people who will teach us about what it is like and japan and hopefully we will be able to start a conversation with them!
Here is a slide were we keep all our work...


evaluation:Learning a new language is very hard and I think I have done pretty well and have picked it up well to but maybe I could try a bit harder!

Feedback/Feed forward: I think that you have done so well in Japanese this term learning the new language but next time I think that you could do some home work on it to get better.

Drama:

In drama we have been learning to always stay focused and in character even in the hardest of time at the moment we are doing a silent movie about a myth we are doing a stars myth.

evaluation:I think I am doing well but maybe I could get my giggling under control!

Feedback/Feed forward: I think that drama is fun and you have been getting better at acting but when you grow up and you want to be an actress then you are going to need to work on your giggling problem.

sports start sample 2016

Description:In poutama we have been doing a sports program called Sports Start were we learn all the skill for playing sport.Today we have played 2 games.
gateways!
One of the games is called gateways and in gateways there are a whole bunch of cones on the court making lots of little gateways and in each gateway there is a type of throwing device.There could either be a ring or a mini bean bag.Here is a video of me showing you how the game works with Katie O'Brien


  Color Rounders!
The next game we played was called color rounders.In color rounders what you do is you have 4  hula hoops set up in a circle and a bat next to one of the hoops.There are 8 people playing in each game.Three are fielders, 4 stand in the hoops and one will have the bat.The person holding the bat and the people standing in the hoop are one team the fielders are another .

So one of the fielders will bowl the ball to the person holding the bat and then they will try to  hit it as far away as the possibly can and the fielders will run as fast as they can to get the ball and put it in the one of hoop while the people standing in the hoop and the person holding the bat will run around every hoop counting how many time they go past a hoop and once the fielders get the ball into one of the hoops they have to stop running and there will be a different batter.

And then once everyone has had a turn batting the people standing in the hoop and the fielders will swap over and then you do it all over again and the team that go around the most hoops win!
Here is a video of me playing the game!...

Feedback/Feed forward: I think you did a good job at gateways and showing how to play. I think that in color rounders you did such a good job at showing how to play. Next time you could do some more challenging passes to each other in gateways so others can see what type of passes you can do.- Aria

Evaluation:I think I did well but maybe I could be a bit more into it and really try my very hardest but I think overall I have been practicing all the skills and I am getting really good at it!-Myself
