My end of term reflection

WALT: evaluate our learning honestly

What is an effective learner?
an efective learner is a learner who is always on task and who is a agentic learner.

What were the highlights for this term? Why?
My highlights were cross-country because i came second!!!

What were your greatest challenges this term?  Why?grass hopper tennis because when we play games some times i can't hit the ball properly!

How are you going towards acting with integrity? Why?  How could you improve? i am acting towards integrity by putting all the pens away when they need to be put away but i could still work on it by putting everything on the floor away that needs to be put away!!!!

What are your goals in our learner disposition wall?  Where to next?My goal on the learning disposition is to move up to self directed!! I could do this by focusing more on my learning all the time.

Science sample!

This is mine Kaylanas and Tabithas science sample and we are explaining the three states of matter!

WALT: show our understanding of how energy works. 

DESCRIPTION: Each week we have been learning about a different type of energy.  For example, States of Matter, Kinetic and Potential, Radiation, Conduction and Convection.


Gathering Data
I can gather information using my 5 senses
I can gather information to make a prediction
I can use my information to draw conclusions
I can share my findings using evidence I have gathered

Task: Make a video (no longer than 30 seconds) about on example of   
energy. i.e. States of matter, Potential and Kinetic energy, Newtons Cradle or forms of energy like Radiation, Convection, Conduction.

What makes a good video:
- clear voices
different camera angles
- Still camera skills
- mute background noise
- mixture of still and moving images
- background distractions
- music

What makes a good poster:
- clear writing
- detail
- images
- interactive

(Image Here)

Evaluation: I think I did well at explaining well  ... because i had a clear voice .... Next time i could add better Katie

Feedback/Feed Forward:  I like the way you have spoke with a loud voice  I think you could improve on still camera angles.

Kinetic and Potential Energy!


DESCRIPTION: Write an explanation about something you have learned about energy.

What? We are publishing a piece of writing.
Why?, To share on our blog and during our Student Led Conference.
When? Week 6
Who? The World

Evalution:I think i did well and i have expand well!

Kinetic is moving energy.So it is like a ball and you are holding it up in the air and it is ready to drop  that is potential energy!As you know kinetic energy is moving energy. So it is like you drop a ball it is moving!Also when the ball moves it creates heat!


                                                                       Potential energy
                                                                                    Stored energy
                                                                not moving energy

                                                            Kinetic energy
                                                                     moving energy
                                                            not stored energy

Buddy feed back and feed ford:I think that maybe if you had a little bit more time you cloud of made it  longer but you did at well explaining the difference of Kinetic & potential energy.
