Disgusting food

Purpose: Describe using our seances.

Description: We made stories about a digesting food we have had to eat to please someone or to get pudding.  The aim of this was to get us to be creative and come up with describing words to show the audience how bad this food was.

Task: A time I had to pretend I liked a particular food.

I saw the dark green skin all wrinkled and bumpy. The mushy rundown texture of the insides of this putrid veggie. It's rubbery green skin is as slippery as a waterside along with the slimy contents.
Slowly I slice through the middle of the vegetable and I nearly faint after one sniff of this bazaar aroma.
Reluctantly I place the half in my mouth and I am shocked! It was putrid, disgusting I shuddered swallowing it fast before drinking bucket loads of water to push it down.

Swimming goals

This term we have been starting swimming. The reason for this is we have swimming sports an event we have every year where all the kids do races and fun swimming things to show off their skills.
To prepare for this we have taken a video of ourselves with a buddy and watched it back so we can see what we are doing ok and what we need to work on.

Here are my three videos.

Big idea:
My goal is to work on my body position during backstroke mainly the arms. I can do this by lifting my hips so that my body is flat across the water. I would like to achieve this by school swimming sports so that I can set my next goal for the rest of the term.

Date: 13/3/15
 I think that I have really focused on my goal this term and my backstroke is a lot better.
My hips are lying flat with the water and by head is not lifted above the water. As a result my body moves through the water faster and glides better. I think that I have been really time sensitive with my goal and I have completed it within the time limit I had set for myself.

Maths test

Description:We had to do a stage 4 and 5 math test so we could find our starting point for maths.
I found out that most of the questions on my page weren't completed because of time.
I need to work on my knowledge.

Purpose: To find out what stage we will start on for maths.

Area of maths: Maths knowledge.

My test: (Below)

My goal is stage 5 how many.

I need to be able to recognize the same questions but turned around, as well as how many 10's 2's and 5's in a number. I would like to prove these by the end of next week so I can start my next goal.
I know that I can achieve this because I can now recognize where  two questions are the same.
I know I am nearly ready because I need to be able to do it in 3 seconds and I am not far off that.

Childhood Writing

Purpose: To share memories about my childhood.

Description: We wrote a story the uses Remember to start every paragraph. I tried to use a show not tell strategy to enhance my writing. Here it is.

Remember lining up behind the worn white line. The breeze cutting through our thin t-shirts. "Go" the gun fired and we set off giggling as we tripped over our own feet in the mad rush to the finish line.

Remember running past the finish line, collapsing before picking ourselves back up again prepared and fitter ready for the next activity.

That was my first race.
