For science we are trying to figure out away to manipulate plants into growing in winter and we have chose to change one thing in the way they grow. So what we are doing is keeping the pots they grow in the same the place the grow the same how many seeds go in each pot and what type of seeds go in it and lastly we are keeping how much water we pt in there the same.

Sea Turtle Writing

Description: This term our writing has been around sea turtles, first we watched a video so we could learn about sea turtles then we made a plan, so we knew what we were going to write about, then we started our drafts.

Image:



Here is my writing

Sea turtles have been around for 150, 000, 000 every 20 years females lay 1000 eggs on the beach they bury them high up on the beach so that the tide doesn't wash them away, out of 1000 eggs 800 hatch 400 make it to the water the other 400 get killed by crabs and seabirds because they can’t look after themselves, 200 make it to maturing age and 20 lay eggs 2 survive pollution that's a 96% chance of surviving.


Growing up. It’s not easy when you're a sea turtle you have no friends your on your own you die it’s over you didn’t help repopulate another turtle dead.


Babies. As small as the palm of your hand came from the size of a dinner table not fast enough to run away from the deadly predators of the sea, scared and lonely.

Sea turtles must have a hard life, I for sure wouldn’t want to be one.

SportsStart Portfolio Sample

Description: Twice a week the teachers take us down to the courts to something called sports start where we learn lots of good skills for playing things like netball and basket ball there are two main games that we play, color rounders and rainbow strike.

Color Rounders:
First you have 4 hula hoops set up in a circle with a ball in each hoop and a bat in one, there are 8 people playing in each game 4 people stand in each hula hoop and the others are fielders they stand in between each hoop. One of the fielder bowls to the person with the bat once they have hit the ball, everybody in the hoop run around in circles until the fielder get the ball, as the people in the hoops run around one person count how many hoops they got, once every body has had a go at batting you switch roles.

Rainbow Strike:
First split into two teams one fielding one batting, (this game must be played on a court with three thirds) one of the fielders bowl and the first one in line on the batting team bats, if it lands in the first third that's 1 point if it lands in the second third that 2 points and if it lands in last third that's 3 points, once everybody has batted switch roles.


Gateways:
One of the games is called gateways and in gateways there are a whole bunch of cones on the court making lots of little gateways and in each gateway there is a type of throwing device.
There could either be a ring or a mini bean bag, once you have thrown the device 10 times back and fourth you switch partners and gateways.

 -Bella M

Evaluation: Thanks for the feedback Bella I will work on that next time, I think that my skills in batting and catching have improved a lot since we started sports start I think I could work on batting and aiming.
