Matariki Celebration - Phases of the Moon



My Refection:
I learnt that there are eight phases of the moon and I learnt what waning (it means getting smaller) and waxing meant (getting bigger).
I found this confusing because I am still learning how to figure which moon is which and I also found this amazing because I really liked learning about moons.
I hope we do this again because I really loved doing this.
Next time I will love to finish this on my first try and I would like to learn more about it.

Mini Investigation - Easter



WALT: Understand passing on messages is important.

Me and my group: Meilaniah, Sukie, Caitlin.
I liked doing this because we found a lot of amazing facts about Easter and we also found out where did the name of Easter came from. I found this really challenging because when I was researching and I didn't understand any of the words but I am hoping that we do this again.
Next time I think that I should work a little bit harder on my reading.

Next time i will try harder to understand my WALT.

10 Thing About Me



Reflection:
Walt : use advanced punctuation

We have learning how to use bullet points correctly in my 10 Things About Me slideshow.  I learnt you need to :
  • Place the bullet point in the margin.
  • Use a capital letter after the bullet point.
  • If you have written a sentence, end it with a punctuation eg. fullstop.
  • Bullet points are used to create lists.
  • Find the bullet points icon on the right hand side at top of the tool bar called bullet lists.

Next time I will try and use bullet points in more of writing.

Can you guess which of my information is true and which is a lie ?
