Description: In maths we have been working on statistics. I have been working with Bridget. At first the teachers did this thing when there is one main question and different answers, and then we did more of those and then we had to make our own. Bridget and I did it a what do we expect in Poutama. We had to start again because our questions weren't the best but we did a really good job on our second try!

Here is the slide that our questions are on and at the bottom is votes!

Market day in maori

Description: In ET Reo we have been focusing on having a conversation in maori. what I mean is not just a normal conversation in maori and conversation that you would have with someone who wants to buy your product. So a conversation like *Hi. how are you?. how much is your product?* and things like that but in Māori. So Bridget and I have been writing a script and practicing it and then recording it on puppet pals. It took us a while to get a good recording but we finally got one.

Here it is!

PreP post

Description: In term 3 we started to work on our PreP. Im working with Bridget and Caitlin and we decided to do clay sushi. We chose this because we all love Japan and we all love sushi (apart from Caitlin). We wanted to do clay at first but then we thought pom pom's would be better, but then we thought that the pom pom's would fall apart, so ten we went back to clay and made 41 sushis! On the day of market day we only had 31 to sell because some of the sushis got ruined by the p.v.a glue we put on them to keep the paint from falling off. But we did sell all 31 and made $30.50. We have a slide from the start of PreP to the last day. Here it is.


Description: In Elly's class for writing we have been working on persuasive writing or "adds" what I mean by adds is T.V commercials. We had to make a T.V commercial about a small box. We could make this box anything we wanted. I worked with Yassmine and we decided to make the small box be a wishing box. A wishing box is a box that you can wish for anything and it will come alive!!!!

This is our add!

Risk taking leason

Description: Today in school all of the year 6's became teachers. All of the year 6's have been doing some risks. We have been doing risks like dancing with the other gender putting your hand in a box with random things in it etc... I wasn't here for when the 6's did there risk but they told me what they did and how they overcame it. Today we gave the year 5's a sheet of paper with different risks on it and they had to number off the risks from 1-9 1 was the most riskiest thing and 9 was the least riskiest thing. Then we gave them another sheet of paper asking what could help them overcome there number 1 risk.

This is some feedback from the year 5's we helped

Thank you you for coaching us for the risk. I like how you helped us with risks. But next time you could explain the sheet a bit more.

Isabella LEE:
Thank you for being my coach for the risk taking stuff. I have not had much experience with my risks but you guys have helped me do my work and next term I really can't wait but I will probably fail. Bye bye

Ruby Mainwaring
Thank you for being my coach I have learnt a lot and will be excited for the next time we do this. I think you were very good at explaining and coaching how to do the task. Next time maybe you could work on sharing the ideas and sharing the jobs with eachother.

This is also a photo of us working

Self Portraits Portfolio Sample

Description: At the start of the term we started to do some art. We first drew on our piece of paper some patterns that represent us. Then we started to experiment with colours/ Paint, dye etc... Then after we made our practice we started to do a real copy and that was really fun. I didn't like my first copy so I put in the bin and thats why its not on my slide but I really liked my second copy/ actual copy. After doing the experiments and finishing our real thing, we started to practice drawing our selfs. I only had two tries and I really liked my second try so I kept that one. We had to shade and make everything little thing detailed. I cut out my drawing and put it on my other art, and then I took a photo of it and now its on my slide for everyone to see. I hope you like it!

ET Reo Portfolio Sample

Description: This term in poutama we have been doing ET Reo. Half of the people in Poutama go to kapa haka and the other half stay behind and do ET Reo. In ET Reo we have been learning Whakatauki. Whakatauki are maori proverbs. We learn't two of them. The first one was: He aha te mea nui o te ao? He tangata! He tangata! He tangata! This means: What is the most important thing in the world?
It is people! It is people! It is people! Our task was to make something for both. For the first one we had to make people (ourselves) and colour them in and then the teachers put them up in P2 with the quote. The second one was: Nāu te rourou, nāku te rourou ka ora ai te iwi (ngā tamariki) This means: With your food basket and my food basket the people (the children) will thrive. We made weaving baskets for this one. First we did one on paper and that was quite easy. Then we made one on actual flax. That was harder. My first try with the the flax was horrible and it broke but then I tried a different style and it worked.

This is my drawing that I drew of me.

Feedback/Feedforward: I think that your picture you drew of you looks amazing! maybe next time you could add some shading to make it look even better.-Devin

Evaluation: Thanks Devin. I also think I did a good job and I think that I should do some shading too. But I also want to make the head a bit more round next time too.
