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.

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.

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

Ghost-Jason Reynolds

WALT: to make a prediction based on the cover and blurb of Ghost by Jason Reynolds.

I was able to read the blurb and look at the cover to predict what might happen in the story.

Next time I will…

  • Make a better predictions from just looking at the cover and reading the blurb.


Walt: understand that people celebrate in different ways.

I was able to search on the internet and understand the different dances.

Next time I will be able to …

  • Find different dances that relate to different celebrations

Matariki Celebration - Phases of the Moon

Walt: accurately identifying and organise phases of the Moon.

I was able to identify different Moon phases and link them together and put the name and the picture together.  I learnt that waxing means to get bigger and waning means to get smaller. Matariki is linked to these Moon phases because Matariki is the day after the winter solstice.

Next time I will

  • Look up at the Moon every night to identify what phase the Moon is currently in

Mini Investigation- Easter

Walt:  understand passing on messages is important so we understand why we celebrate.

In my group had to find facts and information about Easter because some of us didn't know much about easter.

I think that Easter is very important because it celebrates Jesus Christ's resurrection. I now know more things about Easter and can pass this information on to my parents and siblings.
