Anzac day

My Reflection
Walt:Find and summarize information by choosing the most important information.

I was able to use a google doc to help me get the Anzac day facts to put on my slide.

Next we gathered all the main facts into one slide and for extra facts we put them in the other slide.

I found lots of facts by looking at each paragraph and surprised the main idea in the paragraph.

Camp Merc acrostic poem.

Walt:edit and revise my Camp Merc writing for clarity and impact in response and feedback.

Learning Reflection.
I found this activity easy because I have done lots of acrostic poems before.I did make changes to my poem after getting my feedback from Thomas and Reuben. I made some spelling mistakes and I corrected them because Reuben spotted them.

Next time when I do my writing I am going to get a red pen and edit I will underline my spelling mistakes I will check for the red lines under the incorrect spelling.

My Kennings Poem

Walt: distinguish between relevant and irrelevant ideas for my Kennings Poem.

I was able to :

  • Use lots of detail.
  • Only use ideas that related to me.
  • Use relevant ideas.
  • Not use irrelevant ideas.
  • Edit my work to make my writing more about me,eg Dirt bike rider/Dirt bike extraordinaire.
Next time I could put more year 6 WOW words in my Kennings Poem like extraordinaire.


Walt : display data on histogram, tally chart.
Walt : interpret information from histograms and tally marks eg. medium, mode, range, mean.

I was able to use these scores to make my histogram.
  • The range for the first name scores is 4 to 20.
  • The range for the last name is 2 to 21.
  • The range for the full name is 9 to 31.
I really liked this activity I would like do do this again but do it about something different.
At the start it was a little tricky because I had to count up all the numbers.

Walt: Use different spelling patterns and strategies to increase my word knowledge.

There are 45 letters sounds in the English language.  Sometimes these sounds are made by one letter and sometimes they are a made by a group of letters together.  Learning these letter sounds will help me spell unknown tricky words and increase my word knowledge.
