Maths test

Last week we did a maths test and I did a stage six test because at the start of the year I did the stage six test. This time we did a different test from the start of the year, but it was the same stage. At the start of the year I got 58% which was a good score but now that I have been practicing I got 64% on the test I just did. I did all of the questions I knew like the addition, subtraction and multiplication first. I did the harder questions second because I knew that if I focused on the questions I had to work out then I wouldn't get as many right. I have been practising so i am happy that I got more right than last time. I have improved with my maths, and I thought that I would only get one more right but I got 4 more right.

Maths portfolio sample term 2

This term in maths we have been focusing on fractions, So we were learning about proper fractions, improper fractions, mixed fractions, adding fractions, converting fractions and imagining that the fraction was the other way around to work it out. 
We were given a rich task about Lego mixels...

I knew that in 300 there were 5 sixties so, 1/5 of 300 is 60
I knew that 1/5 is the same as 2/10 so it would be 60 as well.
If 2/10 is 60 so 1/10 is 30.

Evaluation: I think I have been doing well at fractions this term but I think there are a couple things I need to work on like adding fractions, I think I did well in the rich task but I struggled a little bit.

Feedback/feedfoward Good job Aria you did well explaining how you got the answers but next time you could work on adding fraction but over all you did well.

Today for inquiry Suzanne gave us a challenge to make as many figures or shapes out of shapes from a square, the shapes you make have to be original not just the examples. I made a boat, a bat and a Christmas tree.

Bookapedia Term 2 researching skills

Title Skimming and scamming 
WALT: create criteria to evaluate sources
We had been given these articles and then asked questions so we had to skim and scam to find the answer I got 5/5


A good source:

-has a good reputation, be from a trusted expert

-not ask you for private information or have virus warnings

-contain the keywords/information you are looking for

TITLE: Summarising
WALT: Persist to find information to gain a wider perspective
We were given a question then we researched and Summed it up into 10 ideas.

Skill 3
TITLE: Notetaking
WALT: Organize our notes to make connections and find gaps

Feedback/Feedforward: I think that you need to add more of a description to the tasks. You did well at evidencing your learning.- Harriet 

Evaluation: I think I agree with Harriet I could have added more description for my tasks. I think I have done well with evidencing my learning and saying what the skill we were learning was.

This term the year 6's have been given the opportunity to learn Japanese with Kelly on a Thursday afternoon. Kelly is passionate about Japan and their language, Kelly has been to Japan twice and has learnt how to speak Japanese. We have done two sessions and we have already learnt to say and write to ten in Japanese. I have been having the nicest time learning Japanese and can't wait to learn more. Each week Kelly chooses two people who have been working hard and focused and gets them to go head to head with trying to eat as many marshmallows as they can while using chopsticks.
Here is my slide

Wow Aria you are doing so well, I think you could improve still maybe you could try speaking fluently without words infront of you, otherwise you are doing amazing.
- Tabitha C

Evaluation:  I think that I have been very focused in Japanese and making sure I am listening to the things the senseis tell us so I can remember some Japanese things. I have been excited for the trip because it is another opportunity to learn more about Japan 


Today in maths I was working on equivalent fractions, so I wrote down all if the 1/4s, 1/2s and 1/7s. I played a matching game where you have to match a fraction with one that is equivalent to the other.

Monday, 16 May 2016


Today in maths I had a workshop about equivalent fractions. We were learning about what's equivalent to a quarter and halves. We were given a task to find what is equivalent to 1/7 but I didn't get it so I write down all of the 1/4 and 1/2 equivalents.

Here is some of the other work I did.

A metaphor sentence.

Today's taskforce writing was to write a metaphor sentence. This is my sentence.

Fact or Fib

In our writing workshop we did fact or fib, fact or fib are when you ask one or two questions and someone has to guess which ones a fib or fact.
Do you think it's a fact or a fib

The moon

Today we did a second video about the earth, the moon, the sun. We did this because we had learnt some more facts about the moon, the sun and the earth work and I work with Sophie.

17/5/16 moon

The moon today is hidden behind a cloud but we could still see a little glimpse of the moon.
Here is my drawing and measurements.

This term we have been focusing on the moon and here is my slide.

Bayan tree art

Last term we did some art with Anna. We did Bayan tree art,bayan trees are the trees with the roots ubove the ground not inside the earth. First we looked at some pictures and then drew the outlines of the tree. Then we coloured it in with black paint. When they dried we coloured in the spaces in between the branches, the background and the water. Here is my art

Handwriting post

Description: Last week the teachers set us a task to write a poem, making sure it is legible and accurate while doing it in five minutes. We had to rate ourselves in 1- 5 I rated myself a four because I did over 40 words in five minutes. I didn't do it fast but I did it accurate and legible. My goal for accuracy is placement and for fast it is to finish the poem with it being perfect.

Evaluation: I think I did well because I was meeting the standard if I were to do it again I would try to get beyond the high standards.

The Moon

This term we are focusing on the moon so we made a 10-15 second movie about the moon, the sun and the earth and how they rotate. We used three different type of balls like a marble, a soft ball and a  big ball. The balls represent the moon, the sun and the earth. I made my video with Sophie.

Today in my workshop we did a fraction word find that Scott gave us. It was a very clever word find and it spelt out fractions. Here is the word find we did.


Today I have been working on mixed fractions and converting mixed fractions into proper and improper fractions. Also another thing I have been learning to do is to add fractions. I think I did well at the fractions that are upside down but I could work on converting and adding the fractions. Here is some of the work I did today.

Today we started a new passport, we are learning about fractions and ratios. Today I focused on fractions and went on a game from the passport and worked out the answers in my book. After I had a wonderful workshop with Scott.I think that I did well at getting stuck into my learning. Next time I need to work on having a sense of urgency. The work we did with Scott was to do with fractions and doing like halve of the eyes blue and 1/3 of the teeth yellow. Here are some of the work I did today! 

And here is the work I did with Scott
