Writing Portfolio Sample

Description:  In writing I have been learning about sentences. I'm in Troys writing group. I'm trying to get better at using fanboys by not using as much talking. The motivation came from the picture we were writing about. I did a news report about the picture.


Big Idea: After I finish my story I went back and added more detail and  My goal is F,A,N,B,O,Y,S What means For, And, Nor, But, Or, Yet, So. I decided to do FANBOYS as my goal because I am not using it much in my writing. Here is my story!!!

Feedback/Feedforward: Wow Sophie that is a good reason why you should not swim in the deep blue sea of fiji. I think you could improve on adding a bit more detail and fanboys but otherwise it is a really good story -Aria :)    

Evaluation: I think I did a good job but I think I could improve on using a few more fanboys.

Production Protfiolo Sample

In class we have been designing our wearable art for production and the whole school have a different theme and and we got to chose from out of africa with Kate and heroes and villains with Rebecca and Troy did elements. I chose to do heroes and villains with Rebecca. I chose to do a villains because I like them better than heroes. My main colour is dark blue and we had to do a mood board and we had to do up cycle as well. The whole schools theme is ora life.

1) The materials that I used to create my garment were: A big black rubbish bag, black & blue fake leaves, cardboard. 

2) The most challenging thing about production for me was: Cutting out the leaves and the cape.
3) One way I demonstrated a growth mindset during production was: I was really bored of cutting out leaves but I kept on going and I think it ended up cool.
4) Something I am really proud of about production was: I was proud of my cape and tail.
5) Our school vision is to inspire agency, creativity and excellence. I showed this by: I think that I was being creative and I wasn't going to do the mask but I wanted to strive for excellence.

you look great and you put a lot of effort into it and I love the mask but you could have managed your time a bit better - Bella  

Evaluation: I am happy with my garment.

Reading Portfolio Sample

Description: In class we have been doing tic tac toes which is lots of activities that are to do with our reading goal (my goal is summarizing) We go to workshops and summarizing stories that we read together. The activity that I did was waste man which is a man made out of heaps of bits of waste.

Here is my story: There is a guy called Antony Gormley and he made waste man. Antony Gormley made waste man in 2006 and it took him 6 weeks to make and the day after he burnt him. Waste man is sky high and he was made out of 30 tonnes. The waste was collected by the Thanet Waste and the local people.

Big Idea: Summarizing is when you have a long story and you shorten it to the main points. From doing this task I have learnt to summarize the key points in questions.

Feedback/Feedforward: I think this is a super summary Sophie.You have the main points.Well done.
Maybe you could use some interesting language like gentleman than guy....or provide a link to a photo of Waste man-Leanne

Evaluation: I think I covered all the main points but I think I could make it a bit shorter.
