Letter Writing

In Writing we have been learning to: Write a formal letter.

We have followed the writing process and have planned and drafted a formal letter.

Here is a link to our online Modelling book. 
This shows the process that we have followed.

Here is the letter that I have written ( Link the draft of your letter here)

Here is my reflection on the letter writing we have done.

One thing that I found challenging about writing formal letters was figiring out what words to use so that the letter was a formal letter not an informal letter.

My next step is: look for more opportunities to put my letter writing knowledge into practice in the future.

Maths - Convert between metric units, using whole numbers and commonly used decimals

WALT Convert between metric units, using whole numbers and commonly used decimals.

I have found this goal interesting because it is different to the other parts of math you have to actually do physical activities, I really enjoyed this aspect of it. Overall an enjoyable challenge for my maths.

Here are the links to my work
Task 1 (I can calculate speed)
Task 2 (How fast can you run 1km)
Task 3 (Speed of my throw or kick)
Task 4 (How fast can you sprint)

My next step is to use this knowlodge in my generel life.

Maths - Integers and Decimals

In Maths we have been learning to….find the common multiples and factors of numbers.

We have been solving equations for square roots, factors and multiples of numbers.
  1. Readability
  2. Accuracy
  3. Relevance
  4. Quality of language/ information.

My Next Step: Is to use this knowledge further by applying it to problem solving tasks and questions that I will solve in Maths.

I can describe the cultural narrative of the Southwest Zone

Librarian distiction #10

This week at librarian Johanna and I started of by putting away all the books then we went around the library looking to see if there were any books out of place after that Mr Hillary came into the library. He made a comment about the video of a guy with an American accent reading books that Mrs Ward set up for younger students. He said that the librarians should record a video themselves Johanna Mrs Ward and I thought that was a great idea. Mrs Ward said we could have a meeting some day soon regarding Mr Hillary's comment.

The care value I showed was respect because I respected Mr Hillarys comment and acted on on.

The leadership trait I showed was trustworthy because I turned up to my duty like I said I would to Mrs Ward.

Audition distinction #10

This week I voluntered to judge the talent show audition with Maddy we had three people to judge they were all year twos the first person to audition did a dance to "Beat it - Micheal Jackson" all I am going to say was that it was intersting and very long the secound person was doing jokes I have got to admit they were pretty funny he was the best of the lot but there wasn't really much compettion. The last one to perform was another boy doing gymnastics his perform went on for like 15 secounds so he got marked down for that all he did was a rollie pollie, cartwhell and rolled around the floor like a sausuage overall I bthink they all did pretty good considering how young they are.

The care value I showed was respect because I respected they are younger than us and not as capable.

The leadership trait  I showed was active thinker because I thought really hard about the scores we were giving out.

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.
