Science Works!

August1

Hi Everyone,

On Tuesday on the 23rd of July all of Level 4 went on excursion to the one and only Science works!!

We did heaps of stuff like watch the lighting show! Did you know that if you stand under a tree during a storm, you will properly get electrocuted?!

We also got to watch a Science Show where we learnt about Liquid Nitrogen, like it’s so cold, if you touch it you’ll get burnt!

Have you been to Science Works?

What did you do there?

Did you have fun?

4AP ‘Snow Falling’ and ‘Grazed Knee’

Learning Intention: use a picture prompt to write a descriptive text.

4AP were given two images to use to inspire them to write a ‘powerful paragraph’.

We used Lane Clark’s AuthorThink process to get our work ready to publish. This included getting feedback from peers, their teacher and self editing. We then published our work in a class book and are now publishing online.

Descriptions about the following image of falling snow can be found at http://56steps.global2.vic.edu.au/english/4va/

Description about the following image of falling a grazed knee can be found at http://56steps.global2.vic.edu.au/english/4mp/
 

We would like to ask readers to give us some feedback!

Preferably two pieces of warm feedback (what they did well) and one piece of cool feedback (what could they do to further improve it in regards to the learning intention).

For example,

I like the way you tried to use very specific and sophisticated descriptive words like ’serene’ instead of a more general descriptive word like ‘quiet’. You also used figurative language reall well to help describe the movement of the snow and it helped me visualise what it looked like.

You could have improved your paragraph further by focusing even more on the description of what you could and less on the story and what was happening.

 

Constructive Feedback

June24

Hey Everybody,

This term in Media we have been learning to give constructive feedback.

What is constructive feedback?

Constructive feedback is where you give other people feedback in a nice, kind and positive way.

What are some examples of Constructive feedback?

I really enjoyed your video. My favorite part was when they showed what the bully looked like. One thing you could do next time is film in a quieter area because in some parts it was hard to hear. Other than that, I really liked it.

What are some examples of just feedback?

That video was boring! 

That video was good!

Why is this feedback bad?

This feedback is bad because it is not stating why it was good or boring and with the boring one it is mean. 

Is this better?

Your video was really good because it showed how many children get cyber bullied each year. One area of improvement is to speak a bit louder or move to a quieter area. Be sides that, it was a great video!

Why is it good to give constructive feedback?

How does constructive feedback help us?

Have you learnt about giving feedback and constructive feedback in  your school?
