How did you go about achieving this?
Worked as hard as I could to get it finished
What resources were used to help you?
Device to write down our wrap.
Did you go through the process on your own or collaborate with other people?
I was collaborating with Daphne.
How did you find the process?
A little difficult because you had to find a lot of words that rhymed.
What did you enjoy most about the process of creating a rap?
Collaborating and finding words to rhyme.

What might be your next step?
Make it more interesting.


I wake up on Monday,
Pretending to be sick,
‘Cause everyday on my way to school,
You push me into the ditch.


You pass rumours around, and push me to the ground, you throw me into the school pool, you think you’re just so cool!
I’ve told the teacher many times,
But all the bully does is lie!

I have to fake the flu to get away from you.  Why do you taunt me and haunt me?

Integrated Learning - A Waste of Time


What is this for ?
We created a poster because we thought people
were putting their rubbish into the wrong bin. So we decided to show people what rubbish goes in what bin.



What we did ?
We got three posters and did three of the main rubbish bins (recycling, rubbish and fruit bin) and put what does and doesn't
go in the bin.

Multiplication and division blog post


WALT: Solve division problems that have remainders.

                                                              
 What’s the goal?
Solve division problems that have remainders.

What did I learn to do?
To divide problems that have remainders in them like 60 divided by 7. What is the solution? How many cars can I wash in an hour? I can wash one car every seven minutes, so how many 7s go into 60, 8 with a remainder of 4 minutes, so your answer is 8 r 4.

What is my next step?
To do harder division problems that have remainders.







WALT: Use multiplication and division.


What’s the goal?
Use multiplication and division.

What did I learn to do?
Every year on from one you add 4 years in human years.

What is my next step?
To be able to solve more difficult
multiplication and division problems.

Art Attack

W.A.L.T: create artist inspired artwork (Raewyn Harris)

This week it was art attack week 
and we did koru art inspired by
Raewyn Harris.

I learnt that if you put chalk on a piece of paper dye washes it away and the dye takes over.

I learnt that complementary colours are opposite each other on the colour wheel. The complementary colours I used were green and purple, and pink and yellow. 



My next step if I do another one is to add more detailed patterns and do another koru.

I am proud of what I have achieved.

Maths-Measurement

I.A.L.T find the perimeter and area of shapes 

The perimeter is the distance around the outside of a shape. To find the perimeter you add all of the measurements together.



4 cm


7 cm
p=7+4+4=15 cm

The area is the distance on the inside of a shape. To find the area of a shape you need to times the length and the width.

WALT Know what different words mean

WALT Know what different words mean

Reading Goal - Term 2

What’s my goal?
Know what different words mean

What have I learned?
That if you try hard enough to do research you can find heaps of words that mean the same thing
How to think of different words to replace other words e.g. words to use instead of said

The first is the word we were given and the second word was the word that I came up with that means the same thing.

    1. Replied - responded  
    2. Fairy - Pixie
    3. Announcement - speech
    4. Vanished - disappeared
    5. Spinning - turning
    6. Clumsy - Helpless
    7. Demanded - yelled
    8. Disappear - vanished
    9. Happily - merrily
    10. Frightened - scared

I found this easy because I know lots of different words and what they mean.

What is my next learning step?

I can use several pieces of information to make inferences (on information not directly in the text).

Dance - Term 2

I’ve enjoyed doing the dance as a whole Year 6 Hub because we haven't done an activity like this before.

I learnt how to do the Mexican wave with my hands. I found it difficult at the start, but I learnt how to do it in the second week.

I would now like to do more activities like this with the Year 6 Hub from now on.





Writing - Mother of dragons

WALT understand the purpose for writing

Mother of Dragons picture prompt
When the dragon had hatched, crawling out of its shell onto her bed, Zoya knew that her life would never be the same again.
She had brought the dragon far away from her village; away from the people who would hurt it and take it away from her. As she held it in her hands, Feeling its claws affectionately digging into her fingers through her gloves, Zoya knew exactly what she had to do. What they had to do. Together.
The dragon gazed at her. She could see the flames burning within its eyes. It was totally dependent on her, as a newborn child is to its mother. And yet, strangely, she felt dependent upon the dragon as well; dependent upon what it was and what it would become in time.
They would become inseparable.Their futures were entwined. Their adventures were only just beginning....

Zoya went to the shop and bought some dragon food. When he was eating she thought of a name, but she saw his green sleek skin and saw his flaming eyes and his little claws. Hmmmmm she thought, what's a good name for you? She thought, what about Joe? Zoya walked through her hometown with Joe in her backpack.
"ZOYA?" said her dad. She jumped thinking someone had noticed that she had a dragon in her bag, so she said,
"don't worry it won't harm anyone!" Then her dad found out about the dragon the next day when he came into her room to put washing on her bed and heard a noise in the wardrobe. He didn't tell Zoya till the next day and then told Zoya.
”I heard some noise coming from your wardrobe, so I took a look and saw the little creature. I thought it was cute, so i'm fine with you keeping it, but just for a few months!” They both kept it a secret for a few months and then told everyone and then everyone came round to see Joe. 

Joe was huge now so Zoya and her and her parents got rides on Joe around the world and they lived happily ever after.
