Math testing

In maths we did three tests stage four stage five and stage six. Troy said that stage six was going to be hard. He was right it was hard I only got 28 out of 50 only one person got to stage seven I wonder how hard that would be. We did the test again with a buddy. Pink is what we need to work on and yellow is what we got right.

This is stage four

This is stage five

This is stage six
Big idea:
I am learning to write numbers between 1 and 10 million.

Stuck movie

 Monday, we watched a really funny movie about 2 people who get stuck on an escalator. Have you seen it?


We think that we can relate the message in this movie to our learning...Its like being stuck in our learning, we need to ask for help and we need to look for ways to solve the problem ourselves. We thought it would be fun to make our own movie to get this message across. We had 2 groups of criteria for our movie...

Criteria: (Content)
  • Video - 30 seconds long, time is limited. 
  • Scenario - Show someone being stuck and not using the ability to act. 
  • Clear Message - Short sharp clip. Can the watcher get the point of your video?
  • Unique - Coming up with something funny that gets a laugh from others. 
  • Time Passing - Do you need to show time passing in your clip to emphasise your message. 

Criteria: (Movie)
  • Light - Make sure the sun isn’t creating a hard to see clip. 
  • Voice Volume - Needs to be louder than other background volume eg Noise, Kids.
  • Frame - What’s in the frame to make your message obvious. 
  • Steady Hands - Make sure the camera is still. 
  • Individual Clips - Don’t do one continuous shot of 30 seconds. Make a range of short clips and join together. 

Swimming smart goals

The last few weeks we have been doing swimming in our school pool. We are practicing for our school swimming sports in week six

My two goals for our pool is have a hard kick and look at the ground when I swim. To do this I must kick from my knees and always keep my eyes down.

My swimming sports goal is to swim a whole length of the pool in freestyle. To do this I have to remember my togs, listen to Troy's feedback and make sure I am focussed on my goals.
