Roald Dahl GMM

My Reflection
I was learning to describe the characters in a story. We have been reading George's Marvellous Medicine.  I thought of some words to describe the antagonistic grandma. 

I found this work easy because Roald Dahl has explained the characters really really well.

My next step is to do this with the protagonist George.

   Science should be a primary school subject

Science should be a primary school subject because 
If children knew more about science earlier than they would have a head start in intermediate. 
Science is biology, the study of life meaning students would know more about themselves.
Science experiments add more fun and less boring.
Students would know more about the world. Weather and all those other ones I can’t quite remember…
Some people think they should keep science for intermediate. RUBBISH! Whoever plans subjects quite possibly thinks that science is dangerous. It is NOT! 99.9% of science experiments are A.fun and B.safe. I hope I have convinced you that science is awesome and definitely should be a primary school subject.  ☺☺☺☺☺☺☺☺☺☺☺☺☺☺☺☺☺

My reflection 
I have been learning to write a persuasive speech. A persuasive speech needs to have an introduction, a point of view, 3 reasons to back up your point of view and a conclusion. I think I did a good job because I had more than 3 reasons to back me up. I found it easy because I already knew what I was going to write. My next step is to write another speech with a different subject.

Daffodil diamante poem

My reflection
I was learning to write a diamante poem describing a daffodil.  I found this work interesting because it's difficulty varied from easy to hard.  The easy part was writing it, the hard was thinking of the verbs and adjectives. My next step is to make an antonym diamante poem.

This is my volcano art. We used ONLY warm colours. We used drag to make the sky and sponge to make the ground. My next step is to use cold colours for something else.

Wish You Were Here Art


We were learning to draw a self portrait. I didn't like it because I hate drawing people. (

Comparing Fractions

My reflection

I was learning to compare the fractions 3/4 and 6/7. I found it easy because of the strategy we were learning. You multiply the numerator with the other fraction's denominator. My step is to compare a improper fraction with a proper fraction.

My special place

My reflection
I was learning to add detail to my writing using my five senses.  One thing that worked well for me was being  in my special place to get ideas.  One thing that I could do better next time is the image. Overall I think it was pretty good.

Comparing characters

My reflection
I was making a Venn diagram about Jesse and Leslie from bridge to Terabithia. I found it tricky because there weren't many personal things they had. My next step is to see which one I relate to the most.
