2 words 1 minute

Today we used the ‘2 words 1 minute’ challenge to write a description about the Winter Olympics. After talking in pairs about the things we knew about the winter olympics we created a list of words (vocabulary) that would help us write our description. We chose the words ‘equipment’ and ‘respect’ to help us think about what we were going to write.

We talked about ideas with a partner, then we had 1 minute to put those ideas into sentences. We had to try our best to use all the words on our vocab list. After the minute was up we had 2 minutes to reread what we had written and make changes if anything didn’t make sense or if we had words and punctuation in the wrong place. When we finished checking we had 2 more minutes to carry on writing our descriptions.

The words that are highlighted are the words that were in my word list. I made sure that I had
sentences that made sense, and I also used a word list to make my writing even better.
I need to try stay focused and pay attention to my own work.

Read Theroy - Graph

Read theory is an online reading quiz. This helps you with your reading and it is also to help you get better. Here is my graph of my progress on read theory. I have been doing read theory last year and now the start of this year. I have progressed a little bit. Because when I started I was grade 2 and now I am grade 4.

Professor Stephen Hawking

Since Stephen Hawking has sadly passed away we have created this slideshow to show our respect to him but also to show his history behind him. Our focus was to make sure we have created this with our own words and getting used to attributing images we use in any of our learning.

Let me tell you something about the winter Olympics

Let me tell you about the 2018 winter Olympics. Ninety two countries come together to verse each other. This year the Olympics were held in Pyeong Chang, in South Korea. All the athletes represent a country and they compete to get first place, second place and third place medals in their events. Athletes and coaches work together as a team to win. They all try their very best to win and train really hard so that they will achieve their goals. This was event was held between 9 and 25 February 2018.  The Olympic values they have is Excellence,Friendship and respect.

This morning we worked in pairs to write a 5 minute description of the Winter Olympics. We first sat and talked about the olympics so that we had the same ideas. After that we sat back to back and wrote a sentence each. The hard part was that we weren't allowed to talk about it. We had to read what our partners had written and carry the description on. It was a good way to make sure what we wrote made sense. Brooklyn and I changed some words and punctuation when we checked our work at the end. It was a fun way to practise new learning.
