Liars, The Truth App

In Room 6 we have been reading a book called Liars, The Truth App by Jack Heath. One of the activities that we made around the book was a book review. What I found hard while making this post was finding a good picture of the book. My favourite thing we got to do while making this post was making a cool background colour. Here is my book review post.

Dear Future Self

In writing we have been learning to write a letter to our future self. Our piece of writing had to include what activities and people are important in your life,what are your current likes and dislikes,who are your best friends,where do you see yourself in 5 years, what do you think you will be doing, our goals we created yesterday, something you are looking forward to this year and something you are nervous for this year. Hopefully I have included all of these bullet points to my writing but if not then please tell me what I have left out. Here is my letter to my Future Self!


Dear Sophie, 5/2/20
I really do feel like 2020 is going to be a good year
and I really want to do well academically. New class,
new teacher and no big brother! I am pretty excited.


I’ve decided to try out two different sports this year:
basketball and soccer. But I don’t know if my Mum will
allow me to play them along with netball and swimming.
I have been practising a lot of soccer at home so soccer
might be a possibility. I few of the year 6’s from
Room 5 have moved up so I have more friends now.
Tahlia, is still a good friend, while Zoe and Haylee
I have gotten better friends with and Leah’s
been nice this year too. Dad and I always joke
about Mum when we are driving to swimming and
it’s nice to have someone to talk to about anything.
Mum’s has also been very helpful with swimming
and netball too.

I would love to have a Pavlova for dessert tonight
but that might be asking for a bit much. I have
gone off strawberries a bit because I find them
sour instead of juicy these days and I have tried
bananas I find them yummy! It’s good that we
buy them now because the bananas are good
energy for my swimming. I quite like stylish
stationery now but hopefully I am not turning
into a girly girl! But I still love playing with the
dogs and going on the farm, especially when I get
to help feed the calves!


I have a few new best friends and am happy with
all of my friendships even though sometimes they
get a bit dramatic. One of my best friends would
have to be Zoe Oates, she is really nice and always
cheers me up when I am down! Haylee Rae is another
and she is really helpful and funny! Tahlia Fridd would
have to be one of my best friends because she is really
hilarious to watch and is very competitive.

In the future I would love to go to Saint Margaret's
high school where I would board in Christchurch. It
would be great because I could bike or walk to my
Nana’s house on the weekends and then in the holidays
I could go back to the farm at Nelson Creek. It would
be great to go to Jelly Park after school to practise my
swimming too.

The thing that I am really looking forward to this
year would have to be the soccer tournament because
I would love to get a place because I am always in the
not good team. I just hope my practise has paid off!
The cricket tournament sounds cool too even though I
don’t really know how to play I wanted to try something
new. The thing I am dreading this year would have to be
is just being a year 7! I don’t get picked for certain
things and because I am young and short I don’t get
picked for the west coast netball teams! It’s like I'm
being underestimated. 

My reading goal this year is to finish reading plus see readers. For my writing goal I want to be able to write short stories and not long ones. For my maths goal I want to be able to answer fractions questions fluently. For my personal goal I want to be able to get medals for my swimming. For my social goal I want to be able to break and make new friendships without any drama.



Technology

This week was Room 6's first technology since the holidays and it was great. Since some of us were year 6's last year we were new to all the topics and places At the start of the day we were all divided into two different groups. My group went to Digital first which was where we learnt about the programming of games and the Electric Garden. While the other group was lucky enough to have woodwork in the morning. Next was the afternoon session. My group went to science where we learnt to make vanilla ice cream and we also learnt how chemicals react to each other. The other group then went to Digital like us and learnt the same things. Here the link to one of the things our group made in Digital! Technology

The Final Post

Here I am for my 60th and last Summer Learning Journey post for Day 5 Week 4 Activity 3 year 6-8. The Summer Learning has sadly come to an end and for this last post I was told to write a conclusion about the SLJ which had to include my favourite post, the post I disliked doing most, 3 things I learnt and what the SLJ Team could improve on next year. What I found hard while making this post was trying to figure out what I learnt. Here is my last SLJ post!

The Quote

This is my 59th Summer Learning Journey post for Day 5 Week 4 Activity 2 year 6-8. For this task I was told to go on a website that had 25 different quotes that kids should hear. Then I had to pick my favourite quote and I had to put it in a text box in front of a picture that shows what the quote means and then I had to write at the bottom of the page why I picked the quote. What I found hard while making this post was trying to find a good picture to be the background. Here is my post about The Quote!

The Royal Family Dance Crew

Here is another Summer Learning Journey post for Day 5 Week 4 Activity 1 year 6-8. For this task I was told to watch a video of The Royal Family Dance Crew at the 2019 Mega Crew Division. Then I had to write what I liked and disliked about their dance and what they need to improve on. What I found hard while making this post was trying to get a good picture of the dance crew. Here is my post about The Royal Family Dance Crew!

Graffiti Art

This is another Summer Learning Journey post for Day 4 Week 4 Activity 3 year 6-8. For this task I was told to go on a website to look at graffiti art from the 2011 Christchurch earthquakes and take a screenshot of two different ones that I liked. Then I had to write down the differences and similarities
between the two. What I found hard while making this post was trying to find some good pictures. Here is my post about Graffiti Art.
