Hangi Poster

W.A.L.T: Create a Poster
We had to make a poster. Our question was: How Does A Hangi Cook Our Food?
Science Behind the It: The rocks get the heat from the fire. The rocks release the heat from them and starts cooking the food. The sacks are the insulator that go over top. If there is a hole in the sacks the food will get cold. It is called the insulator. When you put the rocks in the fire the fire heats the rocks up. It is called Conduction because two objects are jammed together. Conduction is the transfer of energy through matter from particle to particle. For example, a spoon in a cup of hot soup becomes warmer because the heat from the soup is conducted along the spoon.







Smarty Goals

W.A.L.T: Set Smart Goals
On Monday I got my report and in my report it had all the things I needed to work on and the things I have achieved.

My writing goal is to: My next goal is to put similes, metaphors, onamatopoiea, and imagery to support meaning and enhance impact.
The reason I have decided to focus on this goal is because: My teacher has given me feedfoward in my report.

I will accomplish my goal by: Practicing my writing and putting those things in it. My main thing I will be practicing metaphors.


My reading goal is to: My main goal is to compare and contrast a variety of different texts.
The reason I have decided to focus on this goal is because... My teacher has given me feed forward so I have something to achieve.

I will accomplish my goal by: Scanning different books and comparing them. To make connections.

My maths goal is to: My next goal is to make choices between a range of strategies to solve specific problems.
The reason I have decided to focus on this goal is because: My maths teacher has said that I need to work on that because I have not done that well.

I will accomplish my goal by: Practicing and learning new strategies and when I know them I can use them in maths workshops. To work out questions I do not know with the faster strategies.

Personal Goal: I want to get better at working in a team because I do not listen to the other people's ideas in a group that I am working in.

I want to accomplish these goals by the end of Term 3.
