Risk taking leason

Description: Today in school all of the year 6's became teachers. All of the year 6's have been doing some risks. We have been doing risks like dancing with the other gender putting your hand in a box with random things in it etc... I wasn't here for when the 6's did there risk but they told me what they did and how they overcame it. Today we gave the year 5's a sheet of paper with different risks on it and they had to number off the risks from 1-9 1 was the most riskiest thing and 9 was the least riskiest thing. Then we gave them another sheet of paper asking what could help them overcome there number 1 risk.

This is some feedback from the year 5's we helped

Thank you you for coaching us for the risk. I like how you helped us with risks. But next time you could explain the sheet a bit more.

Isabella LEE:
Thank you for being my coach for the risk taking stuff. I have not had much experience with my risks but you guys have helped me do my work and next term I really can't wait but I will probably fail. Bye bye

Ruby Mainwaring
Thank you for being my coach I have learnt a lot and will be excited for the next time we do this. I think you were very good at explaining and coaching how to do the task. Next time maybe you could work on sharing the ideas and sharing the jobs with eachother.

Self Portraits Portfolio Sample

Description: At the start of the term we started to do some art. We first drew on our piece of paper some patterns that represent us. Then we started to experiment with colours/ Paint, dye etc... Then after we made our practice we started to do a real copy and that was really fun. I didn't like my first copy so I put in the bin and thats why its not on my slide but I really liked my second copy/ actual copy. After doing the experiments and finishing our real thing, we started to practice drawing our selfs. I only had two tries and I really liked my second try so I kept that one. We had to shade and make everything little thing detailed. I cut out my drawing and put it on my other art, and then I took a photo of it and now its on my slide for everyone to see. I hope you like it!

ET Reo Portfolio Sample

Description: This term in poutama we have been doing ET Reo. Half of the people in Poutama go to kapa haka and the other half stay behind and do ET Reo. In ET Reo we have been learning Whakatauki. Whakatauki are maori proverbs. We learn't two of them. The first one was: He aha te mea nui o te ao? He tangata! He tangata! He tangata! This means: What is the most important thing in the world?
It is people! It is people! It is people! Our task was to make something for both. For the first one we had to make people (ourselves) and colour them in and then the teachers put them up in P2 with the quote. The second one was: Nāu te rourou, nāku te rourou ka ora ai te iwi (ngā tamariki) This means: With your food basket and my food basket the people (the children) will thrive. We made weaving baskets for this one. First we did one on paper and that was quite easy. Then we made one on actual flax. That was harder. My first try with the the flax was horrible and it broke but then I tried a different style and it worked.

This is my drawing that I drew of me.

Feedback/Feedforward: I think that your picture you drew of you looks amazing! maybe next time you could add some shading to make it look even better.-Devin

Evaluation: Thanks Devin. I also think I did a good job and I think that I should do some shading too. But I also want to make the head a bit more round next time too.

Description: At the start of the term Poutama got a maths test/rich task. I wasn't there on the day. But the week after the test (the week I was at school) we started to do workshops. We did workshops on measurement, Area and capacity. Then after all of the workshops we had the same test to see if the work shops helped and we did better. For me it was quite hard because I haven't done it before but I did all right knowing maths is not my strong point. This is my slide of my work.


Description: This term in writing Ellys group has been focusing on sentences. We practiced compound, complex,conjunction,simple and adverbial sentences. Then after we practiced those we got a slide of questions to answer about all of the types of sentences. The white slide means we have to fill out something and the blue slides are explaining something or telling us what what we need to do. This is my slide.

Evaluation: Thanks Sophie for the feedback and feedforward. I think I did I a good job with doing my sentences on the slides but I also think I could have added a bit more detail to.

Feedback/Feedforward: Nice work Katie. I like your sentences but next time you could add more detail but other wise you did a really good job. - Sophie B
