Stuck Movie

On Monday, we watched a really funny movie about 2 people who get stuck on an escalator. Have you seen it?


We think that we can relate the message in this movie to our learning...Its like being stuck in our learning, we need to ask for help and we need to look for ways to solve the problem ourselves. We thought it would be fun to make our own movie to get this message across. We had 2 groups of criteria for our movie...

Criteria: (Content)
  • Video - 30 seconds long, time is limited. 
  • Scenario - Show someone being stuck and not using the ability to act. 
  • Clear Message - Short sharp clip. Can the watcher get the point of your video?
  • Unique - Coming up with something funny that gets a laugh from others. 
  • Time Passing - Do you need to show time passing in your clip to emphasise your message. 

Criteria: (Movie)

  • Light - Make sure the sun isn’t creating a hard to see clip. 
  • Voice Volume - Needs to be louder than other background volume eg Noise, Kids.
  • Frame - What’s in the frame to make your message obvious. 
  • Steady Hands - Make sure the camera is still. 
  • Individual Clips - Don’t do one continuous shot of 30 seconds. Make a range of short clips and join together. 
Here Is My Video:

Feedback/Feedforward: I think that you have done very well on your video. But next time you should talk and add her looking under the door and so on. # Livvy

This term we are doing swimming again. We had to buddy up with a buddy so they could video us showing our skills in the pool. After that we looked back at our videos and choose a goal that we would work on for this term.

Here is a link to my video:

Big Idea:
My goal is to make sure I breath on the side and do not breath in front of me for freestyle. I can help me accomplish my goal by practicing turning my head on the side in the pool. I know I have completed this goal by getting someone to take a video of me and comparing my progress with my first video. I could also go and ask Simone to give me feedback. I would like to finish this goal before the term ends.

We have just had Swimming Sports and I am very proud of myself because I know that in freestyle I breathed on the side and that made me faster than I was before.

Maths Test

Maths Test

This week we have been doing math tests. To pass the different stages we had to get over 40 right. We had only ten minutes to complete the tests. First I did stage four and I passed, then I did stage five the next day and I passed, finally I did stage six and it was really hard. Now I am on stage six. But we got to redeem ourselves the next day by buddying up with a buddy and testing them on the questions of stage six that they got wrong, The yellow on stage six is where we got some more questions right the next day when we got to redeem our selves.

Stage 4

Stage 5

 Stage 6

Big Idea: 
For stage 6 we got a second chance to answer the questions but we only can get a tick beside the question if answer the question in three seconds. After that we highlight the questions we mostly got wrong with a pink highlighter. Then that will tell us what our goal is. My goal is to Write numbers to 10 000 000, including fractions & decimals.

That Was Me Growing Up

That was me growing up

Purpose: To share memories from my childhood

We had to write a story about us growing up. I wrote about my first ballet class and making my first smoothie. It was really fun and I hope you like my story.

This is my story: 
Remember scattering a smoothie all over the floor, now knowing to be cautious? That was my first time trying to make the perfect, pink smoothie that I imagined, it was a peach, smoothie, that I spilt on the kitchen floor, I NEVER did that again!

Remember darting up the stairs of my first ballet class, as I lept for joy in the warm, humbling, vast room, I wear my favourite pink, sparkling tutu as I dance around the place? I love the feeling of leaping into the air it feels like I am strong and beautiful. 

That was me growing up!
