Listening post

Description: Hi today we have been making videos about listening. We chose busy listening and active listening. Busy listening is when you multitask, like listening to a story and taking your shoes of at the same time. 


Big idea: The learning behind this was to create a video about two types of listening. Everyone has a group but some people didn't listen and formed the wrong types of groups! 

Feedback/Feedforward: I think that it is good that you where clear and you had active listening and busy listening across the whole screen and it was there for the whole time. I think you should make sure next time you get the whole group in the video so it make it looks like someone else in the video.jake

Evaluation: The video was quick and easy but it was hard to get the post right. I learnt that thirty seconds is hard to fit a video in because it's a short time. Next time I'll try to follow jake's feedback.

Treaty of waitangi eportfolio

The Description: In Poutama we are making a post for Waitangi Day. My group has been using Minecraft to recreate William Hobsons landing. We did not have to build a marae because jack had one already.

Big idea: I learnt that that the treaty has faults and they are the differences of governance and sovereignty. The teachers had set us the task of making something about the treaty. My group was aiming for a multi stage. What do you think we got?

Feedback/Feedforward:I think you did good on your post and you have done a good description. I think you could put a video or something to show what you now about Waitangi Day  .jake 

Evaluation: I found that it was challenging to get the build finished in time because the ship had to be ready in three weeks. I did not have Minecraft so my iPad was for research on the Waitangi treaty.

This weekend is waitangi treaty so in P4 we had to have some waitangi questions. Here are my questions:
Why did the Europeans sign a treaty with the Māori Chiefs but not the aboriginals in Australia?

Did māori intend to sell their land?

What are the differences between the māori and English versions of the treaty?

One word

In P4 we are having to find a word. My word is learning. Here is the criteria: Your word needs to:
relate to all areas of your life e.g. school/home/sports/academic/social etc
be something that will challenge you this year
be positive
be something that you can action daily
be an attitude / a way of thinking
I chose this word because last year I got distracted too easily. This year it's not happening at all.
