Perimeter, Area and Volume.

In maths we have been learning to:
  • Deduce and use formulae to find the perimeters and areas of polygons & the volumes of prisms.
  • Find the Perimeters and areas of circles and composite shapes & the volumes of prisms, and cylinders.




Here is some evidence of my learning.


Include screen shots for all of the IXL activities that you have done









You can also find evidence of my learning in my Maths book.

Extended abstract task
Extended abstract Answer



My Next Step: Is to apply this knowledge to real life situations involving perimeter, area and volume.

Koru Games Reflections

In the Koru Games the sport I competed in was touch rugby

Our team won 4 games out of 8 and we came 9th

I found the experience to be good because we managed to work as a team and did well in our first year

In terms of working with Individuals and Groups; my solo level is Extended abstract because I can reflect on how well I work with the group and seek feedback on how I can improve.

For Teamwork; my solo level is relational because I can participate and take responsibility in a team and explain my choices in terms of team outcomes.



Individuals and groups
I need help to work in a group (with teachers or other students
I can work in a group with my friends.
I can work in a group with anyone in my  year level or team  


I can respond positively to the needs of others
I can reflect on how well I work with the group and seek feedback on how I can improve
Teamwork

I need help to interact with others.

I need help to participate in a team.
I can interact with others one to one.

I can participate in a team.
I can interact with others in a small group.

I can participate and take responsibility in a team.

I can participate and take responsibility in a team and explain my choices in terms of team outcomes.
I can participate in creating healthy teams by taking responsibility and critical action.

Reason with linear proportions Assessment task

WALT: Reason with linear proportions
I have been learning 3 WALTS
1.National Standard 1: Combine simple proportions to work out what parts the whole is made up in a unit of 10 like 3 yellow with 7 blue, 5 yellow with 5 blue, 4 yellow with 6 blue. Say what the fraction and percentage of each stack is for yellow and blue.


2.National Standard 2: - Combine proportions to work out what parts the whole is made up of using non-multiple of 10 like 8 yellow:5 blue:4 white with 11 yellow:11 blue:11 white (19:16:15 and 38%:32%:30%)


3. National Standard 3: - Order fractions with unlike denominators by finding a common denominator
My evidence: Assessment Task
My next step is: Know how to do these really well

Reading-Evaluate Texts

In reading we have been learning to apply some criteria to evaluate texts eg accuracy of information and presence of bias.




We have been evaluating texts against the following four criteria:
  1. Readability
  2. Accuracy
  3. Relevance
  4. Quality of language/ information.


These documents show evidence of my learning during this unit:

My Next Step: Is to continue to apply this new knowledge and evaluate texts as I read them, checking for readability, accuracy, relevance and quality of language/ information.

Review of term 2 book

The 78 story tree house is definitely one of my favorite books, it is about two friends that have a tree house and keeps on building up on the tree house by 13. In the book they are making a movie about their every day lives and how they are normally only one of the characters are left out ; But the evil cows come in and try to ruin the movie and try to make their own if you want to know more you have to read the book
 I would definitely give this book a 9/10 and I would recommend it to anyone that is interested.

Drama

In ARTS this term we have been learning to:
Select and use techniques and relevant technologies to develop drama practice.
Here is a link to our online modelling book.

  • During this unit of learning we:
  • Described the characteristics of silent performances.
  • Identified different techniques used in silent performances.
  • Used these techniques in a variety of different practice situations.
  • Worked in a small group to put together our own silent performance.

The most challenging part of this unit of learning was finding out what we were doing the performance about because we would not know how easy or hard it would be

The two things that I enjoyed the most were:
  1. Planning the performance
  2. Practicing the performance

The story that my group told silently was Jak stole the fidget spinner and Daniel and I tried to get it back but we let him buy from our store

Overall I think my group worked well together because we are really good friends so we know when they are getting annoyed and a little bit tired
