Technological Pieces and Systems

LI to identify and adapt a piece of technology

For this I had to go into group of three people, I went into a group with Jack and Julian. Once we’d made a group we then had to think of three things that were either technological systems or technological pieces that were in your house or school, community or in the world. We then had to do B.R.A.I.N (Benefits, Risks, Alternatives, Initiatives and Next/Nothing), for benefits we had to think of all of the advantages that came with that piece of technology or technological system. For risks we had to think of everything that could cause injury from the item we chose. For alternatives we then had to think of some things that would do the same thing as the item we chose. For initiatives we had to think of all of the change we could make to the item. For next or nothing we had to decide if we could change the item or if we couldn’t.

I did this by choosing three items with my group and thinking of all of the things we could write down for B.R.A.I.N. I also used the google shapes to create the pictures of the system and pieces.

For my comments I had to include questions, a greeting and encouragement. I also had to make sure that I didn’t misspell a word in my comment or used bad punctuation. Once I finished my comment I then had to proofread it before I took it to Mr Wong for the final check.
I did this by reading the person’s blogpost so I knew what the post was about, also to make sure I wasn’t lying and making a bad comment because I didn’t know what the post was about.

Length of time to run distances

LI: to identify the units of time in order from shortest to longest, and to learn how to measure time.
For this my group (Delta) and I had to record the amount of time it took for us to run from one distance to the next. We could choose where we could run from one place to another, Delta chose three places to run even though we were supposed to only do two.
We did all of that by using place value and simple addition to work the answer out and by running as fast as we could to get the best time that we could get. For the hall the total amount of time that it would take us was 21.6 seconds because we added everyone’s time up into one big number, that also means 30.83 seconds for the netball court and 60.07 seconds for the field beside the netball court. We also added every person’s time together so they could know their total, The fastest runner was Julian.

Writing Commenting

 My LI is to write a narrative and to buddy conference to edit and check writing.
For this I had to choose a person in my writing group, once I’d found a buddy I then had to share my writing to her and she shared hers to me. After we’d shared our work to each other we then checked each other’s work. If you look down below you’ll see all of the suggestions I made to her, and if you check her blog you might find the suggestions she made to my work. Once we’d checked everything and suggested all we could we had to take a screenshot of the suggestions and blog them.
I did this by reading through her work, finding mistakes and highlighting them pressing the comment button and typing out what I wanted to suggest.

We drew pictures of the BFG, Danny from Danny the champion of the world and Gremlins. After that we put information in, we put information about Roald Dahl’s children's books, what he did in the war and who he is.

We did this by using google shapes for the characters, researching Roald Dahl and finding all of the names for the books.
