Risk taking lesson

Description: Today in class we had a coach that had done risk taking with the ashurst team and then today we had a coach that taught us how to fill out a form that we had to fill out and put our most riskest thing to your most not riskiest thing then we had to come up with a strategy things we need and why we chose what we chose. I chose singing in front of an audience because when I perform something I get embarresed and forget something.

Suzanne's Challenge

My nephew is going on a long flight to the UK.  He loves animals.  On the plane, he needs something that he can play with and keep him occupied in a small space.  The pieces have to be able to be stored flat in a snaplock bag that can go in his pocket.  

3 possibilities to prototype are:
Prototype 1. Fold up slot in Giraffe 
Prototype 2. Have you seen these zoo animals flap ups
Prototype 3. Tangram giraffe

I have chosen Prototype: I have chosen prototype # 1. because:
It is the easiest to fold up into a snap lock bag.

My first prototype: (This needs to be detailed enough so that someone else can make it)

Tester 1's Feedback and Recommendations:
I really liked: I liked how you tryed and never gave up 
A recommendation I have is: Next time you could make it stand up better
Based on my tester's feedback, the changes I want to make are: making it stand up.

My second prototype: (This needs to be detailed enough so that someone else can make it)

Tester 2's Feedback and Recommendations: I think this prototype is a lot better and I can see you have taken my recomendations.

ET reo portfolio post

Description: In ET reo we have been learning about Whakatauki's. A Whakatauki means proverb in english a Whakatauki is a piece of wisdom and a quote that you remember. Our first proverb was: He aha the mea nui o the ao? Which means What is the most important thing in the world and the māori thought He tangata, He tangata, He tangata. Which means the people, the people, the people. For that whakatauki we drew people, First we drew a draft the we got nice paper and and drew our draft on the good paper after that we coloured with pastel and cut out to stick on the wall.


This is my drawing:
 This is the whole class:

I like how you made your person i can guess that you drew Emily. you were very creative. -Bella.L

Evaluation: I think my piece of art is very good and I am very proud of it. Next time I think I could work on the whakatauki and work on pronouncing it better but I tried and got it right.

Calender Art portfolio post

Description: In class Nic and Troy's whanau class have been doing calendar art together, and Elly's whanau class have been doing separate calendar art to us. In my whanau class we drew a plan of things that tell a story about us then we drew a self portrait of ourselves then we drew lines around us and textured and drew in our decorations. In our draft we did not do a self portrait. We have hung the one with no self portrait and left the ones for our calendar. I told a story about how I love music, How I love nature, How I love hockey, How I love my family, How I love animals, How I am crazy and that I am from NZ. We had to show a close-up of the things that we wanted to share to show a story about our lives.

Feedback/Feedforward: I think your piece of art is very good and it tells a great story about you and I think everything is very clear. I think next time you could use more blending on your face and make your face clearer. -Bella.L

Evaluation: I agree with Bella and think that my face and eyebrows a bit clearer and more tidy. I think I can tell a good story about my life.

Writing portfolio post

Description: I am in Nics writing class and our goal is organising ideas. To organise our ideas we used our senses to plan. We got to choose a character and a setting: I chose Clucky the chicken and my setting was a chicken coop. We wrote our writing published it then chose a little piece of writing from that piece. I am very proud of what I wrote and I put lots of effort to make my one piece amazing.

You did really well writing your story having juice words but i would like some more punctuation. -Phoebe J

Evaluation: I think my snippet of writing is really good and that my planning really helped me. I think I have got better at planning already which is great. I think I could work on getting better words into the writing.
