Today I investigated painting, I painted a scene of grass and the sky in the back ground.

 

What sort of ideas/new learning did you discover?

I didn’t discover anything new, but when I cleaned my paint brush with water made the paint go watery and ti wet my artwork.

 

How could you develop your idea?

I could develop my idea by painting a painting that has a more complicated because most of the scene is quite easy.

 

Are there any new questions you have?

There isn’t any new questions I have because painting is quite easy.

 

What would you do differently next time?

Next time I would make the painting more harder and I would dry the paint brush after I wash it so there’s going to be no water on my artwork.

 

I didn’t get to take any photos because I had to clean the table and after I lost my artwork.

 

 

BTN and blogging

  • What is inclusivity? What do you think some of the features of an inclusive policy might be?

I think that inclusivity means that stuff are included in something. I think in a  inclusive policy is laws that you follow.

 

  • What is equality?

Equality is when you share things out equally to each other.

 

  • What is equity?

Equity means that when everyone of you would have to get the same thing. Like in the picture the equity is everyone get to have the same thing. In the picture the dad didn’t need anything to stand on and he already could see the view. While the littlest boy need to see the view with two crate so everyone got to see the baseball cricket game.

 

  • What is the difference between equality and equity and how do each contribute to inclusion (or exclusion)?

     

The difference between equality and equity is equality is when you guys share the same amount of things but one of you might not be able to have much rights even though you guys share the thing. And equity is when you guys are all equal and no one has more powers than the other one even though one of you might not get it.

 

  • Does including all people equally necessarily mean including all people equitably?

     

Yes, because everyone should have equal amount of rights as the other people.

 

  • What is an example of a practice you could employ in the school to increase inclusivity?

I don’t really know but when my friends and I play handball people comes up to us and ask if they could play, and we always let them play when though they are tough to win.

 

 

Investigation reflection week 2

What did you investigate today?

Today I investigated how to make an arm knit scarf, this activity was in the art room which is next to the old canteen.

 

What sort of ideas/new learning did you discover?

I learnt that making an arm knit scarf is really hard to do because the art room was very noisy when I was doing it so we couldn’t hear what the lady was saying.

 

How could you develop you idea?

I could develop my idea by going on Youtube to find a better video that is easier to make

 

Are there any new questions you have?

There isn’t any questions that I have.

 

What would you do differently next time?

Next time I would try and find a quieter spot to do this task because I couldn’t hear the last that was teaching us how to do it.

Here is my evidence:

What advice does she give to potential young authors?

The advice that she give was how long your book is it still going to take time to finish. You got to keep trying as many times even though you have fail many times.

Investigation reflection week 3

Today we had to continue on with the same activity that we did last week last week I started making arm knitting scarf, and this week I have done lots.

I discover that knitting a scarf needs patient  because if you rush it, it wouldn’t  become good looking. So have to have patients to be able to finish this task.

I could develop my idea by finding more ways of knitting a scarf

I don’t have any new question for this task because it’s really easy to make but takes lots of time

I wouldn’t do anything differently next time because my scarf looks really good already, but I’m sure that by next week I’ll be finish with the scarf.

 

Take a look at what I’ve done today:
