Author Bias

                                                                  My Reflection
Was to to identify bias in articles and explain reasons why it might occur. I found it hard to find a good article to write about for the author's bias.
My Next Step:
Is to identify author's bias and explain reasons for why it may appear in a text.

Character description

                                                                                  My Grandparents
They are kind,clever,caring,friendly,polite,funny.   They speak Nuien and Maori.  They like to go to different places and travel.  They are as quiet as a mouse and joyful.  They look old, wrinkly and happy.  They are people who are kind,loving and thoughtful. 

                                                                            My Reflection
I was learning to write a character description of my Grandparent. First I had to watch a video, look at pictures and think about my and other Grandparents. I had to think of words to describe them and a dialogue, a simile, a metaphor and also what kind of person they are. I found it tricky because I didn't know what these words mean.
My Next step:
Is to write a description based on a real life person.

Term 4 Week 2

                                                    Egg Drop
On Friday it was... FANTASTIC FRIDAY!!!!  I was so excited that I also got my favourite activity which was cool science .

First we got different materials like news paper,2 straws,a balloon and a plastic bag (which the stuff was in).  

Next, we got the egg and we had to try and make a strong but soft material that will make the egg not crack when  we dropped so what we did was that we cut the balloon open and stuck it together with tape and carefully got wrote Bob on it and drew eyes and a mouth .

Then, we started to wrap the news paper carefully around him and taped it on the sides then got the plastic bag and put the  news paper in side the plastic bag we tied the handles and taped it like everything else just in case then we just used the straws for antennas.

The Experiment begins we all droped our eggs and hoped they didn't crack so  I recoreded what happenned we unwraped it carefully and...IT CRACKED!! We didn't see the little hole and thats what caused it to crack.

                                                      In concluesion
It was really fun and I wanted to do more but I have to wait till Friday again!

Fact or Opinion?

                                                                               My Reflection
Is to find the authors fact or opinion in 2 articles we had to Find the 1,2 and 3 opinions plus the connections in the article.  I found it hard to find the opinion in the atricles till they came  around to my partner and I.

                                               My Next Step
Is to Identify the difference between a fact or opinion.

Probability with Yahtzee

                                                                     My Reflection 
I was learning about probability.  We had to play the game Yahtzee and talk about which combinations were most likely and least likely. I found it tricky because the game was difficult because you keep getting a full house which was annoying and because if you keep getting the same thing over and over again it made it even harder to get a Yahtzee or a large or small straight .

My Next Step

Is to use probability in a different situation.

Finding Non-fiction Texts

                                                                     My Reflection
Was to Find the Five W's in 3 articles Who,what, where, when, why.  We had to find a Sport, News and our own choice of article on Kiwi Kids news  and write all of the answers for the 5  W's and a summasry in our own words which was tricky.
                                         My Next Step
Is to write Another article with the 5 W's again and with more information for my summary .

Term 4 Week 1

What I did in the Holidays!!!!

  • Movies
  • Otara  
  • Oathu
  • Cousin's house
"YAAAAAAAY! Its the Holidays!" I shouted on Friday when I got home and saw the Kittens which were so cute! Then I realised my Nana and papa were coming back from Australia  on Saturday at midnight which meant I couldn't see them  only on Monday  which was okay .   On Monday we went to my Nana's house and I was so  happy and tired so I went to sleep for a while and woke up at 1:00 and I went to go play with my toys till we got presents!!! I got some clothes, lipbam and hair ties but I got another one with more clothes and lollipops with the Frozen peoples face's on them.

On Tuesday I went to the Movies and watched born to dance at 2:00 which took 4 hours to watch because  we came to early so we got some thing to eat like sushi, and a drink and the movie was on so everyone be quite  its about to start and it was 2hours which was okay because it  was awesome and funny one person that I realised was Stan walker but in the movie he was put in jail then he got out but I don't want to spoil the movie for you.

On Wednesday I went to my Cousin's house and saw them there parent's weren't home so we  waited a while for them and then they got there present's and me and my cousin Jessie went to her room and played then drew lots of pictures till we had to go but I didn't want to so I tried to hide but they said I had to go so I did about 10 waves to them and I was up against the window say goodbye to them 3 times .

On Thursday and Friday I went to Otahu and Otara to buy a few stuff for the Pacific festivil but I did buy some taro .  We went to some places to look for the stuff we wanted but they were all gone before we got there so my nana said why didn't we come here first and I laughed because nana looked every where else but not here so we brought a table cloth and had something to ea so we didn't do much.

                                      In Concluesion
I think the Holidays was stressful for me because I had to go back and forth for a while back my Holiday was still FUN!!!
