Walt: find and summarise information by choosing the most important information and linking it back to the topic.

I was able to summarise the most important information and link it back to the topic.  I had to find the most important piece of information from a document of ANZAC and choose which piece of information and estimate between wether it is important and relates to the topic or wether it is a good piece of information.
Next time I will :

  • Remember to link the information back to the topic.
  • Choose the most important piece of information.
  • Find and summarise the information in my own words.

I was able to experiment with new word to suit the writing purpose.  I had look for some different and more interesting words and change some of the poems because they didn't make sense.

Camp MERC Certificate

I got this certificate for completing outdoor activities in the environment.
At camp I learnt how to look after myself and be organised.  It was tricky to get up on the giants ladder because every time I look down I felt a tingle in my back.  It was also tricky when I was abseiling because It made me feel like a was going to fall. I enjoyed rock climbing because with rock climbing you had to think where you were going to go  and what are you going to grab. I also enjoyed canoeing because you had to be organised and be in time with the person in front of you.  If I could I would change having to do sailing to surfing because I was really looking forward to surfing and also because everyone who did surfing said that it was so fun.

Next time I will try and be more confident in rock climbing because I didn't make it all the way to the top.

Reading-New Vocabulary

WALT:actively seek to extend my knowledge of new vocabulary.

My Reflection

I was able to actively seek new words and expand my word knowledge.  I had to find words in the book I'm reading for SSR (Sustain ,Silent ,Reading) and if I wasn't sure about a word I would write it down in my sheet and find out what it means and find a synonym.

Next time I will  have my post-it notes ready so I can write down my words and transfer it onto the computer and I will look for new words when I am doing my 45 letter sounds.

House Captain speech

Today I stood up in front of my house group Rata and gave a speech about being their house captain for 2017.  I demonstrated resilience by having a go and trying by best to be confident by sharing my speech in front of my house group and 3 other house groups .
