Week 1: Starting to think about science: Gathering and Interpreting Data.
Today I have placed myself at unistructural for gathering data because if I get shown how I can observe experiments. For inferencing I put myself at unistructural because I have an idea what it means but I’m not sure if it's correct.

Week 2: Balloon Rocket experiment
Today in the balloon rocket experiment I thought my observations and  inferences were multistructural because they were in all  the right places but they might not be connected to each other.  My goal for next time is to start connecting my ideas to each other, put them in the right places, so that my observations and inferences are accurate and make sense and maybe back  myself a bit more cause I keep on thinking it wasn't going to work.

Responsible citizen reflection

This term we learned about how to be a responsible citizen. When we first started I thought that on the rubric I was unistructural because I picked up rubbish sometimes.

I think that I have definitely learnt a lot. I’m definitely much more of a responsible citizen now than I was, because I pick up rubbish way more often than I used to , return others property when I borrowed it , wear my hat everyday and be a helpful bystander,  a good role model and I always do my school work and jobs. I would say that on the rubric I'm now relational because I used different strategies to be a responsible citizen and I know when and why to use them.

My project helps the community know how to take care of a young dog . Sadly yesterday I wasn't here so I missed out on talking and telling them about how to be a responsible pet owner.  My challenges were deciding how to present my learning and finishing on time.

Overall I am very proud of my learning - this is a valuable thing to learn in life.

Responsible citizen

Responsible citizen 
Are you a responsible citizen? If you are then you will know the  important qualities a responsible citizen needs. One of the important qualities are following rules and laws. If we didn't have rules or laws the world would be a dangerous place,  people would threaten to kill and start to lose their family and friends. So this quality is important because it keeps us safe and brings our community close together.
Another important quality is trustworthy because if people aren't trustworthy we wouldn't be able to have banks because people wouldn't trust the government to keep their money safe. People couldn't work by themselves, because they might not do their own job. That’s why this quality is important because people can have some freedom and be by themselves.
Caring about people, nature and the environment is also another important quality because if we didn't have this quality rubbish would be everywhere and trees would get ruined by th…

Going hard out at gymnastics

On a shining summer afternoon,  even when I'm tired and sore, I still love going to gymnastics. I pop on my tight fluorescent leotard and head to the gym. We run around in crazily different ways and stretch our muscles so we can do some awesome skills and drills. We flip,  jump,  leap, tumble, balance, everything.  When my muscles are in pain, I know I worked hard because my legs feel like they're choking.

I am a brightly coloured party van

I am a brightly coloured party van,
with laughter
and joy.

I am a classroom,
full with children
giggling and working .

I am a forest,
with heaps of
different quirky trees.

I am a lemon ,
because sometimes I can be sweet
but sometimes I can be sour.

I am pizza,
with crazily different toppings
and every bite tastes different.

I am a tie -dyed t-shirt,
colourful, bright and messy
with a little bit of sparkly glitter .

Ko Olivia ahau.
I am Olivia .
