Maths Portfolio sample

Description: This Term we have been working on multiplication and division, we have been working on questions that are not easy to solve. I am in Elly B for maths and we have been using the box methed.

Big Idea:

FeedBack/FeedForward: I think that you have done a really good job on explaining how the box method works and I agree that the box method is a very useful tool to help solve hard questions. I think that you should keep working at this goal so you are out of the pit. Georgia :)

Evaluation: I think that the box methed is really helping me to solve hard eqations but I still think that I need to work on the box methed a bit more because I am not 100 percent sure yet how to use the box methed properly. I think that I am being put in the learning pit for maths but that is good because I know that when I get out I will know how to use the box methed so then I can solve the eqations on my own.

Bella and I were going to be making a wearable art dress but then we relised that we weren't as passionernite about wearable arts and that we liked making hairstyles and trying them out more so thats what we are doing. Bella and I are going to be starting a Youtube channel for people who want to try new hairstyles out and because it seems like it is going to be really fun.We have done lots of reasearch on cool hairstyles and here are some of the photos that gave us inspration...

Bid Idea: We are going to be designing our own hairstyles for daily bases or for special ecashions.We are making a youtube channel to show other kids or adults how to do cool hairstyles.

Feedback/Feedforward: I think you did a good job on plaining out when you are gonna do peoples hairstyles. Next time you could say what what type of hairstyles you will be doing. -Zara

Evaluation: I think that Bella and I have used our time wisly but I stil think that we need a little more before we go ahead and make the video because we may mess up so I need a little more practise on doing hairstyles.

Writing WIth Rebecca

Description: In our writing class with Rebecca we had this picture given to us to give us imsperation for our story. We glued the photo into our books and started writing the settings and what the animals on the picture were thinking of.My goal is to stick to the main point. The first day of writing Katie and I worked together to get us started on our story and told each other what we need to work on for next time... I hope you enjoy

Great Job Hannah you have used lots of complex sentences which makes your writing very interisting. You have also added lots of detail to your writing. Next time you could maybe add more describing words to add impact. Great job. Hannah K

Evaluation: I think that I did a great job on my story but I think that next time I need to be more organised because I did a lot of editing, and I think that I could add a few more paragrahs.

Wearble Arts

Description: This term we have been working on wearable arts. Our theme is Ora, Ora means Life. We work on our Wearable arts every Friday. We will be showing our amazing costumes of on the 21 of September. I wan't my dress to be the calm sky and then I will start twirling getting faster and faster so my layers under neath will look like a storm.

What: I have been working on my dress. It is made out of all types blue fabrics.
Now What: I need to start working on my head dress. It is going to be made with these little black storkss and and a black headband with screwed up plastic bags so then it looks like a cloud.

1) The materials that I used to create my garment were: different types of blue fabrices,cut up rubbish bags ,wool and some elastic.

2) The most challenging thing about production for me was: making the under skirt becasue I had to not on all the plastic bags on to the lastic making sure I dont have to much or I have just enough.

3) One way I demonstrated a growth mindset during production was: I didn't give up I just carried on because I new when I was finished I would be very proud.
4) Something I am really proud of about production was: how I shaped the dress and how I made it look like a windy day.
5) Our school vision is to create agency, creativity and excellence. I showed this by: being creative in my design and  I showed angency by working on my art by myself and when I finished it I went and helped others with there art, I showed excellce by trying my hardest in my art and I put all my energy into it every day.

Thick & Thin

Description: This term we have been doing tic tac toes, we do them when we aren't in a workshop, depending on what goal we are. We can choose any activity thats on the tic tac toe board, So I chose Thick and thin questions. That is when you can ask a question and it will have a longer and more detailed answer but when you ask a thin question it may just be two or three words and not as detailed.

Reading Portfolio Sample Term 3 Tic Tac Toes

Description: This term we have been doing tic tac toes, we do them when we aren't in a workshop, depending on what goal we are. We choose any tic tac toe that has something to with our goal. My goal is Questioning . I think I have been doing well at Questioning on the book or text that I am reading. I know I am getting better at Questioning  because after I read something I can easily come up with some questions to ask about the book or text that i have just read.

Big Idea: We had to  pick a tic tac toe and I chose Reverse it up. Reverse it up is when it is somthing you cant do and we based it on a computer. I chose to do 20 question. Here they are:

Evaluation:  I think that it was quite challenging for me finding the questions for what a computer can't do but I thought that when I had my first two or 3 done I was sort of getting the hang of it. So I think that I did a good job making my questions detailed.

I like how you put a bit of humor in you statements of how computers cant do the things that normal humans can do. but maybe next time you could push the limits and really put yourself in the pit ant try and go for forty or thirty a computer can't statements. Devin
