Science moon

Description: We are studying science this term and I am learning about the moon and how it works. We had to measure how far the moon was from the horizon with our hands. I know that the moon affected the tides. There is some thing that I want to find out about the moon like how long does it take for the moon to go round the earth? I have a slide show that I will share with you.

Here is the slide show. It contains what I all ready know and what I want to find out.

Feedback: I love that you explained how you found out what you did. Kiana
Feed forward: maybe you could be more specific when you say we. Kiana

Evaluation: I think that I did well explaining my learning about the moon because I asked really good questions about Nic's inquiry slideshow. I enjoyed finding out how the moon affects the tides.

Japanese portfolio sample

 This term the year 6s do Japanese every Thursday with Kelly sensi. We have been learning how to count and sing in Japanese and I can count to ten which is pretty cool. It is a hard language to learn but I enjoy it because it is fun. On the 29th of June we are going to IPU ( International Pacific University ) to meet some Japanese students who go there. I am going to share a slide show with you that contains songs and numbers.

Feedback: I think that you did a nice long description.
Feed forward: I think you could explain it a bit more.

Evaluation: I think that I did good explaining the details. Next time I could say a bit more about what we are going to do there.

For E Te Reo Kayla, Naomi and I made a board game so people can learn the Maori foods and have fun at the same time. We had a list of foods. We had to cut out lots of little pieces of paper and stick them on to a squiggly path.

Hear is my board game so far. 

Here are the cards people will play with.

Feedback: I really like how you guys were a team and you added a miss a turn space. Kyan
Feed forward: next time you could add a wild card were you roll a dice and more that many spaces forwards. Kyan

Evaluation: I think that I did well explaining what we did to make it 
Next time I could put a video on of some one playing it.

This term for Bookapedia we have been doing a range of things to do with questioning,summarising and taking notes. These are some of the things that we have been doing.  

Skill 1:

TITLE: skimming and scanning

WALT: create criteria to evaluate sources


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:
TITLE: Summarising
WALT: Persist to find information to gain a wider perspective

I wouldn't want to be a.....
World war ll pilot because you have to have to leave everything and you miss your family and friends.
Also because there is a big risk of hurting or killing yourself and hurting others that you don't want to get hurt.

Skill 3:
TITLE: Notetaking
WALT: Organize our notes to make connections and find gaps
EVIDENCE: (upload hexagons)

Feedback/Feed forward: well done Harriet you've done well at your summarising. I can tell that because there is not a page full of words. Next time you could add a bit more to your other tasks so that the reader can understand what you understood about research. But other than that great job!-Bella M

Evaluation: I think that my skills for skimming and scanning have improved because I know what websites are useful and what ones not to use. I also know that watching videos helps me learn and focus on my work.It also helps me take notes and facts.
