Knowledge Math Test

Description: Last week we did a knowledge test for maths. I got a higher score than the one at the start of the year and got 38% and on the last one I got 22%. There was 10 minutes and 50 questions that we had to try answer. I did a stage 6 test.

Evaluation: I think I had a big improvment on my test and I definetly got better with division from getting it a knowlegde.

Seed 2 Table portfolio sample

I think that my group did really well at staying on task and respecting with the parents that helped and we had good manners. I think it was good that everyone was eating at least more than a few mouthfuls of everything even if we didn't like it as much as others or had never eaten it but gave it a go.

Feedback/Feedforward: I think that we did really well with our Sience and going through the days and watering them with weird things, and i dont think this needs anything more i think that its really good:) -Katie O

Evalation: I think some of them will work like the water and diswashing liquid will work and it was hard to come up with what to water with them.

Fractions portfolio post

Description: In the last few days in maths we did a lego math rich task. We have had to try figure out what each one added up to. We had to split 300 into 1/5 1/4 1/10 and 2/10. We struggled to get the idea of it but once we had help and had it explained we got it.

Feedback/feed forward: I think you should show this the question next time about the pixels 

Evaluation: I think I did well at explaining and showing how I got the question but next time I think I should try and make it more clear.

Global warming

Global warming comes by co2 ch4 n2o. This is caused by green house gases. We can stop this by stop cutting trees down and using less greenhouse gas, also whenever you leave the house remember to turn lights off.

Evaluation: I think I did well at getting all the information about the global warming and how it works.

Writing Metaphor

Description: Today in writing I wrote a metaphor, a metaphor is a sentence that you compare something with something else. eg. an elephant and a lizard. I wrote when my dog has a bath she smells like a rose.

Evaluation: I think I did my metaphor well but next time I think I could maybe do it less simple.

The Moon

Description: Today in Reading I watched a video on the moon and got some photos that explained what the moon is and how it works. People sent a rocket up to space to see what is happening in space and it went to the moon.

Evaluation: I think it is cool how they see what is happening in space and how the moon works.

Weather Inquiry portfolio sample

Description: We have done Weather inquiry for 3 weeks. We had to come up with an experiment and a question that we wanted to learn off and know more about for weather inquiry. I chose to do a cloud in a bottle for my experiment and I chose to learn more about how clouds float.

Feedback/feedforward: Cool experiment Ruby! I like how you presented it by giving the instructions to the viewer. I wonder next time, if you double the size of the water and the amount of matches, if you will make bigger clouds?

Evaluation: I agree with Scott and think it may be bigger if you double everthing.

Sunday, 8 May 2016


Description: Last week we did handwriting and vote if we were a 1 a 2 a3 or a 4 I thought I got a 3 because I thought it was mostly legible fast and mostly accurate.


Evaluation: I think I did well at writing fast and think I was 3 because I got it done just in time, and I think I was a 3 for legible because I had a most of my words in the right form and spacings but some weren't. With accurate I think I was a 3 as well because I had nearly all the capitals and full stops in the right space and all my spelling was right. Overall I think I was a 3.


Description: Last week in Poutama we did a spelling test and I have got two words wrong which are jumped and Saturday. But I now know how to spell them. 

Evaluation: I think I did well at my spelling test and I think I could have gone slower and taken my time and maybe I would have got the words that I didn't get right maybe get them right.
