Narrative: The Three Little Pigs (v2)


Reflection
I was learning to write a narrative about The Three Little Pigs and make a second version on Google Slides. I found it interesting yet difficult to keep within the story. I didn't like having to delete the parts that were actually going to be part of the story, but I realised those parts were not part of the story. I liked changing the narrative into my story.

Biosphere



The biosphere is the small portion of the atmosphere where all living things (mushrooms, flowers, trees, cats, dogs, fish, birds etc.) reside. Some trees provide fruit, while a large tree can supply a day's supply of oxygen for four people.
The water tank is for many applications such as drinking.
There are five basic and immediate needs and they are air (need air to breathe, you run short of breath if you work too hard, you can survive up to 15 minutes without air, if you are breathless within over 15 minutes you will not recover, either you get a heart problem or you drown), a shelter (shelters usually neither get so hot you will get hyperthermia nor get so cold you will get hypothermia and eventually you will pass out, you can survive up to a few hours without a shelter), food (fruits and vegetables keep you healthy, you can survive up to a few weeks without any food), water (keep you hydrated, you can survive up to a few days without any drinks) and sleep (headaches begin a day without sleep, memories are impaired three days without sleep and hallucinations ensue and there is a significant loss of attention six days without any sleep).

Reflection:
I have been learning to make biosphere plans on my slideshow and draw the things we need to survive, also the computer was used to search up what the list of five basic and immediate needs are and find out about them. In your mind, you'll have to think of the five needs to survive yourself.
I found drawing the things that we need to survive interesting yet a bit tricky.

Sunken Treasure Chest Net

For the treasure chest net, you need a rectangular prism and a semicylinder.The net for a rectangular prism is two squares and four rectangles.The net for a semicylinder is one rectangle, a little wider rectangle (you need to curve it into the curved side of a semicircle or hemisphere) and two semicircles.
You need the wide side of the rectangular prism and the wide side of the semicylinder about the same length.Then you need cellar tape to connect one wide side of the rectangular prism to one wide side of the semicylinder.
Reflection:It was getting difficult to make it without a protractor, but not so difficult with a protractor. On the other hand, it was really hard to do the tabs.
However, I enjoyed making a paper treasure chest.

Highlights of Term 4



Highlights of EPS Term 4
When I visited Farm Cove, the extremely big school, I was extremely interested in gaming (I could make games like I make projects on Scratch), science (I could test chemistry experiments), technology (I could make electronics but I have to be careful), art (I could find other ways to draw/paint something and make it better) and maths (I could answer complex maths equations).
Farm Cove School also had a vending machine that I will try because the machine contained Up&Go Caramel for $2 during morning tea or lunch, and a hall that features some of the nations such as the United States of America (USA), People's Republic of China (PRC) and other flags that usually remind me of the creations of Elm Park School such as the astronaut project that also featured a few nations of the Cold War space race such as the United States of America, the Union of ☭Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR), the United Kingdom (UK) and so on.
I am looking forward to Farm Cove next year.

When I went swimming, I enjoyed even though it was a little cold. I followed all the teachers' instructions and Water Netball. Winning Water Netball was one of the best things.
I enjoyed playing Toilet Flush because I was a tagger every single time I played Toilet Flush. I was pretty fast and tagged people often.

When I heard about the book called Between Two Ends, I was interested in the adventures of Yeats, the twelve-year-old boy who was warned about mysteries, especially dangerous mysteries but had to venture through the mysteries and save Shaharazad and Yeats' family. I found it a mysterious story of danger that Yeats had to get over.  I found the end of Between Two Ends satisfying.


Reflection
I was learning to write all about the highlights of Term 4 of Year 6, especially Farm Cove, a school bigger than Elm Park, and I am looking forward to Farm Cove next year (2017) It was neither easy nor hard to highlight the events.

Auckland Lansdcape Painting


My landscape


















We were learning how to paint a landscäpe using different techniques. To paint the sky, I had to sweep the brush from side to side. To paint the sea, I had to use a sponge. I used cardboard to paint the grass (optional)

Landing a Job (Junior Journal 300)

I was the narrator in a play called Landing a Job, shown on Junior Journal 300. It was about a parrot who doesn't like being the pirate's parrot.
My success criteria was speaking with a loud clear voice so the actors and audiences could hear me.

Trip to Pakuranga Intermediate

Last Wednesday (17 August 2016) We went to Pakuranga Intermediate. We went by bus.
We got to go to a cooking class. We made mouse traps.
We had to grate the cheese and put it in a bowl. Then we had to mix in with some tomato sauce. Then we had to melt it under the grill. I didn't taste the mouse trap. Mrs. Murray ate it for me.

Y6 T3 W1 recount APOCALYPSE
July 25 was the first day of Term 3. I also
July 26 was the first Cross Country day of Term 3, but we just had to walk.
July 27 was Bike Skills Day. I had fun because I was pedalling fast, but I ended up with near misses or minor crashes.
July 28 was the next Cross Country, first time we had to run to exercise. But I was tired because it was tiring to run.
July 29 was the deadline for Week 1.

Grid Value Portrait

GRID VALUE PORTRAIT



*metaphor

I was learning about values in art.
Value means how light or dark something is.
We looked at art by Chuck Close.
His art was a bitmap.*

The first thing we had to do was taking a line for a walk.
We had to fill the spaces with light and dark patterns.
When the lines are close together they become darker.
But on the other hand, when the lines are farther apart they become lighter.
The hardest part about doing this art was the complicated bits because I wanted to draw patterns that didn't match the value.
But I couldn't finish my grid portrait.

Diary post (Term 1 Week 10) (pixel art)

Since the 1st of April, I have done pixel art I can even do at home.
I needed to create a spreadsheet and resize its columns to about the same size as a square.
When I go to Google Images and search for pixel art, I need to locate the pixels carefully that resemble the sprite.
I have shared this spreadsheet with about 42 people, including my cousins, who I shared the spreadsheet with first.
Teryn held the first comment and approved this spreadsheet.
I held the second comment which tells you about the sprites I added.
Quinn held the third comment which was a reply to me and a request to do a Sonic the Hedgehog sprite which I have paused, even though Teryn had the original comment.
If the spreadsheet is shared with you, you can comment on the spreadsheet but you cannot edit unless you ask permission.
We are doing pixel art on a spreadsheet in Room 20 due to the similarity of the grid portraits and the similarity of doing pixel art on a bitmap painting program, such as Microsoft Paint.
I think pixel art would be inspiring for teachers.
We will be making blog backgrounds using pixel art.

This Year: Basic Facts Test Results

Term 1 Week 7

Cryptarithms

A cryptarithm is a type of mathematical puzzle in which most if not all digits in a mathematical expression, such as a sum, are substituted by letters or other symbols.

In a typical puzzle, there is a one-to-one correspondence between the numbers and letters or symbols replacing them.

I enjoy the easy and medium ones. 
For example, 5 + 5 + 5 = 15,  based on a + a + a = ba and 9aa + aa + aa = bac.

Writing Explanation - Raptors




Reflection
I was learning to write an explanation to explain about the book Birds of Prey, a book about raptors. I found using technical words easy to do but I found the conclusion tricky because I wasn't sure how to do the conclusion. I found putting it in order a little easy. Extraneous facts weren't necessary for my explanation. Next try I will try not to add extraneous things.
If I didn't like this subject it would be a bit harder to do.

Making Connections The Dream Guitar


Reflection
I find it difficult to write this reflection because it is too complex for me.  I find it difficult to think about what is happening to them and what is happening to me at one time.

Peer Mediator Video


reflection:
I was learning to solve a problem a peer mediator sees. 
I found it good to be Person 1 of the problem, but better to be the mediator.
I learned that mediators help me with problems.

Reflection
I was learning how to use the statistical inquiry cycle.
I had to ask a question or think of a question.
Then I had to make a Google Forms document to collect information.
Then I had to make a graph from the results.
Finally I had to analyse data.
I found it easy to do this because I had created the form.
