Reading - Evaluate Author's Purpose

In reading we have been learning to evaluate writer's purposes and consider how they have used structure and language to suit these purposes. (e.g.  I can make decisions about why the writer has written a piece of writing and how they have used particular structures and words to meet their purpose.)

Here is a link to our online modelling book


We have been evaluating how well an author has achieved their purpose based on:
  1. Specific Language choices made by authors.
  2. Specific Structure choices made by authors.


These documents show evidence of my learning during this unit:


My Next Step: Is to continue to apply this new knowledge and evaluate texts as I read them, checking to see that the author is meeting their intended purpose.

Band Distinction #9

Today I got to band really late because I was having trouble unlocking the classroom my guitar was in so I only got five minutes of band practice but in the time we did have we had a run threw of the song we are practing ( Believer - Imagine Dragons ) We went threw the different strumming patterns amd when to come in and out. Then at the end we had to rush to pack up because the bell rang.

The care value I showed was: clean up after yourself because at the end when we had to pack up we did it fast and neatly.

The leadership trait I showed was resilience because I kept trying to unlock the door and didn't stop even though it took like ten minutes.

Librarian Distinction #9

This week at librarian Johanna and I put away the books in a flash because there wasn't many, then we went onto the desk to get and return peoples books thats my favourite part of doing librarian duty. When the line died down I went over to the computers to check out what books I still have to read for the forty book challenge so I can finish the challange by the end of the week.


The care value I showed was: Active thinking because I was active to go and make sure I knew what books I had left to read.

The leadership trait I showed was active thinker because I was active to go and make sure I knew what books I had left to read.

Choir distinction #8

This week at choir we started of by singing a warm up song then we did a few warm up exercises.  after that we practiced doing rounds which is basically you get a very simple song such as twinkle twinkle little star and one group will start singing it then soon the other group will start while the other group is still doing there own part. Something I did well was I shared my music book with someone because they forgot theres.

The leadership trait I showed was: Trustworthy because when if I forgot my book I would relay and trust someone else will let me look at theres.

The care value I showed was: Communnity because I helped other people out when it was needed.

Librarian distiction #8

This week at librarian Johanna and I put away the books in a flash because there wasn't many, then we went onto the desk to get and return peoples books thats my favourite part of doing librarian duty. When the line died down I went over to the computers to check out what books I still have to read for the forty book challenge I saw I still needed to read historical fiction so I asked Dabok if she had any suggestions because she has already read two books form that genre she suggested a book to me so I got it out.

The care value I showed was: Active thinking because when I didnt know what book to read for historical fiction I asked someone who was more than happy to help.

The leadership trait I showed was active thinker because when I didn't know what historical fiction book to choose I asked Dabok for some help.

Know the equivalent decimal and percentage forms for everyday fractions.

In Maths we have been learning:
  • To convert between fractions, decimals , percentages and vice versa.




Here are the IXL screenshots that show evidence of my learning.  
The most challenging part about this unit of learning was remembering what the steps of finding your answer was.

My next learning step in Maths is to apply  this knowledge to help me solve a range of increasingly more complicated maths problem.

5/6 Winter sport distinction #7

This week on Friday I went to the year 5/6 winter sport hockey to help ref I am going to admit I was kinda nervous I reefed the B team because it was my first time when we got there I took the team for a warm up I took them for my hockey on a Saturday warm up none of them could keep up something I found hard when reefing was that sometimes I couldn't see who hit the ball out then some people would get angry at me

The care valueI showed was respect because I respected that some people might disagree with what I call.

The leadership trait I showed was motivational because when our team or the other team was hitting into the goal I motivated them to get in the goal even though it might not of been our team.
