Inquiry – Snack Holder

Today, I will be writing my term 4 reflection on our inquiry topic. This term, our inquiry topic is on building a project that would help improve Pt England’s future. My group, CARE, planned on building a snack holder. the reason why we decided to build this is because there has been a lot of leftover fruit and snacks from the school lunches. Over the past weeks we have been measuring, drawing, planning, cutting, and more. We also have been working on our DLO over the past weeks. Our DLO was about recording our progress on our project.

On the first week my group, Care, planned and was working out how we were gonna build it. On the second week, Care, decided on what the project was gonna look like. On the third week, we were working on our DLO and recorded more footage. On the fourth, our group, finished filming our intros and we planned on what equipment and materials we would need. On the fifth, we finally completed our project! We did a lot of hard work, such as sawing, drilling, sanding, and painting. On the sixth week, the final week to complete our inquiry, we have finished painting our project!

The video below will show more about our project

Room 4 Inquiry

Over the 2 weeks, Room 4 has been doing bustops and skits. We had to answer questions about how to manage anger and frustrations. The questions were “What’s the difference between react and response”, “What does our body does when it gets angry”, “What are some tools to control your anger and fustration” and more. My group, Patrick, Flynn, Maddie, and Blessing got to make a skit on what’s the difference between responding and reacting. Last week we made a skit on what our body does when it gets angry. When Room 4 did a bus stop, they reckon that our body heats up, starts to fight things, scream, have intrusive thoughts and shakes in anger. They also reckon that reacting is when your being disrespectful to the teacher when they ask you to do something and that when you respond, you do it right away in a respectful manner.

Introduction to Algebra!

My maths task was about solving puzzles, multiplying, Using symbols instead of numbers, and using BEDMAS. My highlight of this task was completing the task. My lowlight of this task is the whole task because it was hard to work out. I’m gonna work on completing tasks on time.

Here is the task!
