Birthdays Now and Then

WALT: To compare and contrast birthdays.

I was able to find the difference between 1967 birthdays and 2017 birthdays.

Next time I will  use the internet to see what games they used to entertain children at parties.

WALT:  use a wide range of advanced punctuation correctly


I was able to identify what parts of my writing was speaking so I know when to use my quotation marks.

Next time I will... read the sentence correctly and use the speech marks correctly.

Bridge To Terabithia

WALT: make justified predictions from the scanning of the cover, title and blurb

I was able to find the similarities and differences. I could find the key words in the blurb and make a strong enough prediction to what will happen in the story.

Next time I will:

  • Look for key words that will help me make my prediction make more sence
  • Improve my infrience skills

Anzac Day

WALT: to find and summarise information by choosing the most important information in a text and linking it back to the topic.

I was able to:
use my reading skills to help me find the main and important facts in each paragraph. I had to fins the important information and link it to Anzac. The facts that I find need to be the 6 most relevant, they need to be put in my own words.

Next time I will:

  • find more relevant ideas
  • put the ideas into my own words which mean the exactly the same
