16th blog post

Hi guys and welcome back to my blogger. This week on my blogger I will be sharing my PBL reflection. PBL stands for Project Based Learning. For our PBL we had to chose something related about the Olympics to learn about. I choose Artistic gymnastics. I made a slide all about Artistic gymnastics. After we did our project we had to do a reflection. The last few weeks I have enjoyed learning about artistic gymnastics and slideshows and models.
Here is my reflection.

Project Topic: Gymnastics

Photo/Screenshot of Project (insert below)

Finish these starters
  • Something I enjoyed about my project was that we got to learn h           because...

  • The most challenging thing about my project was... making the bars                because… I had to make circles and they kept breaking every time I kept trying to make them.

  • The main skill I got better at was...making the bars   I got better at it by...trying hard and unfortunately I got there.

  • Something interesting I learnt was...  That the boy’s only have six events and the girls have four events.                    

  • What I would most like to change about my project is...That the bars went crooked and they didn’t swing       because… I used cardboard instead of string.

  • I would like to do my next PBL about… Bmx because My brother is really good at it and I would like to learn heaps of facts about them.

Choose three learning muscles and explain how you used them during your PBL.
Trying to Manage my distractions when everyone kept going past it and knocking it over.

Managing distractions because everyone was knocking it over.

Hi guys and welcome back to my blog I am blogging about all types of graphs. This week in Rimu we have been learning about all type's of graphs. Line graphs can also be used to compare changes of the same thing over time for more than one group. Pie chart are best to use when you are trying to compare parts of a whole. They probably do not show changes over time. Bar graph are used to compare things between different groups or to track change times. I had so much fun making a stem and leaf graph with tape and then we had to rip it up.

10th blog post

On the two week holidays. My mum, Sam, Me, Lucas and Mason. Went to the movies to watch the BFG  (stands for the Big, Friendly, Giant.) and Finding Dory. On the first week of the holidays we watched the BFG and the second week we watched Finding Dory. The  BFG  was a really cool kids movie. Close to the end of the movie all Sophie had to say was the BFG and the BFG came straight away to Sophie. Sophie got to live with the queen and she never had to live in an orphanage again.  Close to the start of finding Dory, Dory was playing hide and go seek with her parents Dory started to count to ten. And this is what she said,
"One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, one, ready or not here I come" said Dory. Dory was a cute little fish who lost her parents when she was a little baby fish.

Here is a photo of the movies that I saw!

Hi and welcome back to my blog I am blogging about my learning task my favorite learning task is my writing task. My writing is when we had to do a free choice writing. I am proud of my writing because it is about the wonderful nature.

As you look into the sun all you can see all the wonderful things. A little pond full of amazing spring water as you dip your hand into the gleaming water so clear that you pick it up you won’t even see it. All you can see is the shining sun glittering on the clear spring water. It is so bright that all you can see is gleaming spring water splashing in to a pond full of shining spring water all around the little pond is a hole bunch of flowers. The water fountain is like steps but the spring water slips down like a fish swimming down a slide.The flowers look like a colourful array of fruit all all piled up like a bundle of envelopes. The flowers are all bundled up with a living organism of the kind plants. There are a colour of intermediate of the sky or sea on a sunny day. There are gleaming solid mineral material forming part of the surface of the earth and other similar planets.

The last eight weeks we have been doing passion project. A passion project is something you've always wanted to do. My passion project was singing because at home I've made like eleven songs. Here is a video of me singing some of my songs.
                                                      Hope you enjoy the video    

Here is my passion project reflection.  A passion project reflection is piece of paper that has questions on it. I filled mine out I filled six questions it was really easy filling them out. 
Passion Projects Reflection

Please answer all of the following questions

Describe your passion project. What was your learning in it? What were you trying to produce? Making songs. I was trying to produce a song book.

How far did you get with your passion project? What would have helped you to get further?  I finished my passion project. Someone to record me on a iPad.

What was the most challenging part of your passion project? Trying to make four songs.

What was surprising about your passion project? Finally finishing the song.

Did you follow your plan well? Why or why not? I followed it really good.

Which learning muscles did you use the most while you were working on your passion project? How did you use each one? Managing distractions. Because when I was trying to record myself in the trusted space everyone kept opening the door.

Which learning muscles did you find difficult to stretch during passion project time? Planning.

Include a picture/embedded link to your passion project

If you were allowed to pick a new passion project, what would you choose and why?        Art
rite part of passion projects?            Making songs.

Next I am going to show you my passion project diary. A passion project diary is a diary that you write what you going to do today for your passion project.

Passion project Diary:

Looked at the learning steps plan.

Next I am going to show you what a passion project is. It was really fun filling it out. We also did this when we first started passion projects.

For your passion project, you are allowed to learn and share your learning about any topic you like.

What do you want to do? Be as specific as you can. Writing songs about the nature.

Why is this a good topic for me? Because I like singing my own songs!

What will it sound like when it is finished/how will it be presented? It will sound like nature, It will represent nature!
