Wonder Kindness Poem


Walt: use new words to suit my acrostic poem.

I was able to use new words I have never used before in my acrostic poem.  I had to look in a thesaurus to find different words.  My news words that I have used are highlighted so you can see my new words.

Next time I will choose new words and use them in a different piece of writing.

Diabetes Research




Walt : locate, select and evaluate text for speciļ¬c information including internet sources

My Reflection
I was able to go onto this website Diabetes for kids and answer these questions:

  • What is diabetes?
  • What are the symptoms?
  • How do you live with it?
I had to find the answers to these questions from the internet because I did not know much about diabetes but I now know a little bit more about diabetes.

Next time I will...
  • Use internet sources to research more things e.g science learning and more

Ghost Maths/ How to use a calculator accurately



Walt:Use a calculator accurately.


Reflection
I was able to use a calculator accurately and learn some tips on this website 5 Tips on how to use a calculator accurately, 

I found it hard to use the calculator because I kept pressing the wrong numbers and had to restart my whole equation but then I found out that if I click CE ( clear error ) and click space again it will take me back to my number that I first put in e.g 15+14 then I clicked CE and then I click the plus button and then it took me back to 15 and then i put in 15.


Next time I will...

  • Use my knowledge in how to use a calculator accurately.


Speeches 2017

Walt: deliberately choose words to create an effect on the audience.

Reflection:
I was able to choose persuasive and emotive words e.g Cruel,because,hurt,so would you… to make the audience think deeper about why animal and pet abuse and cruelty is WRONG.

Next time I will…

  • Choose different words that will create a different effect on the audience
  • Choose more persuasive words to put throughout  my speech
