Gathering Data
I can gather information using my 5 senses
I can gather information to make a prediction
I can use my information to draw conclusions
I can share my findings using evidence I have gathered

Task: Make a poster/video (no longer than 30 seconds) about on example of   
energy. i.e. States of matter, Potential and Kinetic energy, Newtons Cradle or forms of energy like Radiation, Convection, Conduction.

The y means go for gold and the pink is pink for think!!!

What makes a good video:
- clear voices
- different camera angles
- Still camera skills
- mute background noise
- mixture of still and moving images

Newton Cradle

WALT: Inform 

Description: We had to write about what a Newton's Cradle is. (its really fun to write about a Newton's Cradle)  

Here is my Writing!!!

How dose a Newton’s Cradle work? 

A Newton’s Cradle work’s like this there are 5 ball’s 
and they hanging from some sting. So you drop the 
first ball that you picked up.

The energy go’s through the ball and the next ball and
the next ball until it hit’s the end ball. While they are
going back and forward it is making a clicking noise.

When you pick the firstball up it is called potential energy.
When you have drop it is called kinetic energy. 

Here are to diagram’s!!!

Evaluation: I think I did a really good job but a think I could work on adding more detail.

Feedback: I think you're writing was good. I think you could of  improved more detail.-Zara 

More Feedback: I think you done a great job saying why it moves and how it moves and what makes it move. - Inara

Reading Sample Mnemonic

WALT: Rote Learning

Today we had to make a Mnemonic. Mnemonic are when you have a word and let's say the word small/ Sophie made a little lie.

Here is my Mnemonic!!!

Purpose: We are doing a Mnemonic because we are trying to spell our spelling words in a strategy. (it's really fun)

Process: We first learnt what a Mnemonic was, then we put our spelling word's in our book, then we made the mnemonic and then I put it in to publish state. Then we put them on our blog.

Learning: I learnt how spell word in a really really fun way.

Evaluation: I think I could work on making the words stand-out. But I like my pictures.

Feedback: Wow Sophie the pictures really make it more exciting and make the reader want to read more.Your mnemonic is really awesome but you need to make the words stand out because at the moment the pictures are brighter and bigger.
