The Mystery Writing Portfolio Sample

Description: For Writing I am in Troys group and we watched a video about tennis ball and how they are made and we wrote a list of things down that we could relate to. When we were watching this video I wrote down some things like muffin holder and things like that. This story that we wrote about tennis balls had to have nothing with the making of it because we were trying to be as creative as possible by using the notes we got from the video and turned it into a story. We had to cross an of our notes that related back to tennis balls. Take a look at my story and the video that we had a look at...

Evaluation: I think that this is possible one my best storys but next time i think that I don;t let my story go off because when I first started this story it was going well but then I kept adding things on so then I didn't have any thing to finish it off.


 Feedback/Feedforward: I think that your story was really creative and had lots of detail but next time I think that you should have a clear mindset of your start middle and end.

Book Buddies With Yassmine

Description: This Term we have been given a choice of book for our buddy and I to read for the term. My book buddy is Yassmine and our first book that we chose was Valentine Joe because we were both hooked in to the book blurb when it said that she saw a soldier outside here window when the war had finished. The book was quiet scary because it was all about her seeing people inside there grave. Our next book that we chose is the twist of Gold and we are still reading this book. I was hooked in when Jacky one of our old teachers told me that there is a boy in her class that always reads them and thinks they are really enjoyable so I thought I give it go. This slide that is below has a little part on it that you are supposed to record what you think of the book and where you are going to read to. We have been recording this every time we had book buddies, We have had to add some more slides on the end because we started a new book. We have also got a slide that we need to put our interview on that is what we think of the book and we are sort of giving the author some feedback and feedforward about the book. Here is the book buddy slide...




Evaluation: I think that Yassmine and I have been succeeding at keeping track of the chapters we are reading everyday and we are having a talk about the book and what chapter we are up to. I think that if we do this task again we could get some help for putting the interview on the slide.

Feedback/Feedforward: Amazing description it explains a lot about you and Yassmine and what you are reading your goal really suits you and you guys are good at keeping in touch about the book and where your at. Next time you could Challenge your self more by choosing a bigger book because you guys are really good at reading and should challenge your self. - Hannah G

Rich Task

Description: Past the couple of days we have done a rich task. When we did our first rich task it was to see where we are in our maths. During the week we had to pick two workshops out of Area with Elly, Capacity with Nic and Weight with Troy. I chose Capacity with Nic and Area with Elly but I did not go to Elly's workshop because I was working with Elly indivierly while the workshop was going with Suzanne running it. Once the week had finished on Monday we did the same rich task to see how much we had improved. We put our selfs on the rubric from 1 to 4 depending on where you are. If we were on a 1 they were aiming for us to move at least to a higher stage or more.I can not remember where I put myself on the rubric because they got muddled up but I think I could have moved. Here is my before and after of my rich task sheets...







Evaluation: I think that maybe I didn't do as well as I thought I would have but I did draw some diagrams and that helped me a little bit more to work out the problems.

Feedback/Feedforward: Good Job Hannah I think you did a good job. - Gaby F

Discovery Time

Description: Today for discovery time I did some skipping, Stilts and also a little bit of making pom poms. Today I discovered that not every thing is as easy as it looks because when we were playing double douch, eli made it look so easy but when I tried I only got like 2 jumps before it stopped. Elly even tried a little bit of skipping and I have to say she is pretty good at it. When discovery time was coming to an end I had a bit of relax time and then I tried making a house of cards ( that did not work out). At the start of discovery Sophie, Eli, Atlanta, Zara, Yassmine and I all made some shelter as a challenge with only just a tarp and a rope.  I didn't get any photos of today but as you can see from last time it is pretty cool.

Discovery Time

Description: Today for discovery time I was learning all about the different ways you could create pom poms. We have changed discovery time now to only the mornings witch is sad but we still get to have fun before break. Bella, Zara, Sophie, Tabitha, Atlantas and I were all trying to make a giant pom pom with two otomans but it did not work because by the time we were at 112 we got told it was time to pack up and also it was taking for ever and if we wanted to make it properly then we would probably have to go round one thousand times or a little less. Here are some photos Marj caught live of me making pom poms...

Discovery Time Week 2

Description: Today for Discovery Time I made 1 big bow and 2 little bows but one of the little bows I gave to Tayla because she wanted to make a doll for her sister so I gave her a bow for her dolls hair. I really enjoyed making these bows because they looked really pretty and I was giving it ago. Yassmine gave me inspiration when she made a bow and gave it to me because I thought it would be fun to make one. Yassmine made the blue and white poke dot bow and I made the rest. I made 2 little bows for the doll so Tayla could make the doll the best present for her sister. Next time I might try something different so then I can discover more like making foam or something like that. Here are some Photos of my bows and of the bow that I made for Tayla's sister...
