Semester 1 Goals

What I want to learn:

I would like to improve on reading out loud more fluently so I can read out loud as well as I can in my head this will help me when I’m reading  to others so I’m not stopping and starting as often. I also would like to learn my times tables more fluently so I can answer them quicker so I don’t have to stop and start to count them. I would also like to improve on the words I use in my personal writing so my writing is more interesting for others to read so they do not get bored. I would also like to learn some spelling words so people can read my writing and understand it more.

List examples of things I could do that would show I am trying to meet my goal:

trying to meet my goal:To meet my reading goal I can read out loud to practice I could also start with bit easier books so it is not as hard to start off with. To meet my maths goal I can work on times tables slowly but regally and not focus on them all at once do them one by one. To meet my writing goal I can write down my interesting words when I come across them to add to my writing. To meet my spelling goal I can pick out the words in my writing that I keep getting wrong and make a note of them to practice at home.

How I learn and behave:

I want to work on sharing my idea’s more so I can have an input and feel as if I’ve contributed. I also want to work on confidence in my ideas so I don’t doubt myself in what I think and just give it a go. I also want to work on not rushing near the end of time we have to write and amount of words so my work is neater.

List examples of things I could do that would show I am trying to meet my goal:

To share my idea’s more I can just give it a go and try my best. To have more confidence I can practice so I have more chance of getting it right and to  just try what I think and if it’s wrong just try again. To work on not rushing I can take my time to do it neatly but not so neat and not take as much time writing the whole thing.

letter to Caitlyn

I’m Amelia,

I’m going to tell a bit about myself:

I’m 11 years old and turning 12 this year. I have a younger sister Lilliana and a puppy called Mali who is a miniature schnauzer. I do ballet once week swimming a netball competitions. At school I play the flute which this is my third year leaning.

My favourite book is Harry Potter my favourite two books are the Prisoner of Azkaban and the Half-blood Prince.

On the holidays we went camping at the beach with my cousins and family as well as grandparents we leave after New Year’s so we have Christmas at home. We have lots of fun swimming playing crafting and mucking around. The water was wonderful and warm and small waves came in when ships came though. We spent nearly every day at the beach seeming how close we were.

While we were down there we went with two of my other cousins surfing at another beach. The water was much rougher so it was easier to surf. I learnt that it’s a practice makes perfect sport.

On the second last day of school me and one of my other cousins and my sister went to go and get our ears pierced it didn’t hurt as much as I thought but it still hurt a bit. We were all very happy once it was done and got ice cream as a treat afterwards.

I hope you enjoyed learning about me and what I did on my holidays I’m really looking forward to this year as a new year 5/6.

From Amelia.

GIST

 

In our classroom we have been learning the summarizing stradgy GIST.First we predict by scaning the page. Then we find the key words in the first paragraph the we write this in 20 words or less this is the GIST.After that we find key words in the second pharagraph and combine this with our first GIST together we do this in 20 words. Finally we find key words  in our third pharagraph and comine this with the first two GISTs in 20 words. Repeat if nessesary.
