Phases Of The Moon Matariki

My Reflection

For this activity we had to read the sentence and put the moon name and photo where we think it goes. I found it easy and hard because the easy part was putting in the names that I knew and the hard part was putting the words I did not know where they went.  I learnt that there are eight phases to the moon. I forgot what the moon has to do to with Matariki.

Next time I could take pictures of the different phases of the moon and remember what I learnt.

Quotation Marks

My Reflection
Walt : use a wide range of advanced punctuation correctly (Term 2) Quotation marks.

I had to do a test about Quotation Marks, you had to pick A B C or D and their was only one correct answer and three incorrect answers and you had to pick the right sentence. I know how to do Quotation Marks because I know you only use them when someone is speaking in your story. I also knew what punctuation and where it should be.

Next time I could try get 10 out of 10 and try it again another time and try get them right again.

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.

10 Things you need to know about me.

Walt : use advanced punctuation

We have learning how to use bullet points correctly in my 10 Things About Me slideshow.  I learnt you need to :
  • Place the bullet point in the margin.
  • Use a capital letter after the bullet point.
  • If you have written a sentence, end it with a punctuation eg. fullstop.
  • Bullet points are used to create lists.
  • Find the bullet points icon on the right hand side at top of the tool bar called bullet lists.
  • You need to be in inside a text box to find the bullet list icon.
Next time I will try and use bullet points in more of writing.

Can you guess which of my information is true and which is a lie ?
