Te Reo

Every Monday afternoon the people that want to go to kapa haka will go  to kapa haka while we do Et Reo with Elly and troy. There is a Maori song by Stan walker called aotearoa and the people in Et Reo learn it. Me fletcger and Jacob made up a game with Maori words here is the game and what you have to do to win and gain points.

Feedback/feed forward:
I think that you could add a little bit more detail.
You did really well at making up the game.

Evaluation: I think it was really hard to actually win the game and i am most proud of making the game.


Description: Every Thursday we go to room 14 for Japanese. We do Japanese with Kelly and when we are not doing Japanese we are with nick. In Japanese we were practicing for the big day when we went to I.P.U and had a tour of the school and do some activitys involving Japanese. We were a few weeks away when Kelly said that she was going to chose five special people and tell them that they were going to get up in front of every one and tell them our introductions and explain why we are here.

Feedback: I lik how you explained what you are doing in Japanese
Feedforward: You could add more about what you did in I.P.U.
Evaluation: I found getting up in front of lots of people really hard and I'm glad I did.

The moon

Description: Today is the last day of science about studying about the moon with Nic. In the past few weeks we have been studying about the moon. Like learning about blood moons and stuff. The first week we were with Nic we made a video about what we think we know about the moon. And today we made a video to improve on our last video about the moon.

Turtle writing

Description: In class for the last two of weeks in writing we have been collecting information from reliable sources and the video Elly shared with us to write a post about a turtles life like maturity, hatching and the percentage of what survives. The first week I did not look at a web page turtle live for a lot longer than us and give baby a lot and this is how they have lived for over fifteen million year and were around the time of the dinosaurs age they have evolved is lots of way if you conpered the two you wound not think there are the same animal the oldest turtle is 185.

sea turtle eggs are leathery and the size of a pin pong ball 800 out of 1000 will hatch that a twenty% chance that is won't make it out of its eggs 400 out of the 800 will not make it to the water from ether being brutally murder by sea gulls or wondering the wrong way onto the road and get themselves run over 200 will make it to deep water because of sallow predators and the currents. pollution is one of the top killers for sea turtles turtle the age of 3 to 5 or 20 to 50 can have baby and this is how sea turtles live.

 have lived for 15 million years turtles have hard shells to protect them from predators they are among the oldest primitive of reptiles having evolved millions of years ago turtles spend most of there life under the water they have adopted aquatic life with webbed feet or flippers and a streamline body but this dose stop twenty making it to adults and two getting to breeding age there is a new species of giant tortes found in the Galapagos.

feedback:  You did really well explaining how sea turtles live.

feedfoword: You could add a little more information next time you write about an article.

Research skills with Suzanne. (Bookapedia.)

Skill 1

Skimming and Scanning

WALT: Create criteria to evaluate sources

In bookapedia we have been learning to skim and scan with Suzanne. The way we did that was that she gave us an article about a very fast Japanese train. Here is a picture I took about the article.

1. It hovers 10cm above the ground.
2. 375 mph.
3. 2018.
4. 111 miles.
5. Kazuyo Sejima

A good source:
-has a good reputation, be from a trusted expert
-not ask you for private information or have virus warnings
-contain the keywords/information you are looking for

Skill 2


WALT: Persist to find information to gain a wider perspective


You wouldn't want to be a Roman gladiator because you have to fight to the death and if you chose not to be a Roman gladiator you go into slavery wick you would normally die from after a few years. If you become a gladiator and you win your first fight you go on to fight harder people until you die or the run out of people to fight you wich only happens once with Ceaser. And after your dead they just threw your body in a pit and leave it there.

Skill 3:
TITLE: Notetaking
WALT: Organize our notes to make connections and find gaps

Feedback: I like that you have been taking a lot of photos to show me a better image in my head.
Feedforward: next time you can you could check your writing because I found a few spelling mistakes and gaps. 

Shaiv :)

Evaluation: I think I did really well at focusing on the W.A.L.T and understanding it so that I can get the best out of my learning and I can see if it is a good website the criteria above will show you what I mean. I also think I am getting better at skimming and scanning because I can et the most information out of it the quickest and this will help me because I can do an essay and get my facts to the best they possibly can be.
