5/6’s Expo Day

On Monday the 24th all the 5/6s presented their inquiry topic, to the 3/4s and parents. This term for my inquiry I chose to research on Tsunamis. I found out lots of information at the start of the term and later on I found lots of information about tsunamis. For my Poster and diorama I laid out materials that I could use to present and make my topic. When people came to my table I showed them, my diorama and explain how it works and read them out my explanation and some information. I used my negotiated task sections in my homework book to find out more information! In the end I enjoyed the whole thing and I learnt lots of information and I got lots of people to coming to my table. I hope they learned something new like I did.  By Camila

Term 2 Reflection

 

 

 

 

 

During term 2, all senior school students had an inquiry topic about the earth to study.

My inquiry project was about ocean waves and tsunamis. Over the term I had heaps of fun while at the same time learnt heaps of fun and interesting facts. At the end of the term we had an expo day where we shared all our information to parents and the 3/4s.

I made a poster, an explanation, a short animated movie and an ocean in a bottle:

An ocean in a bottle is an experiment that demonstrates how the waves would work in the ocean.  

 

My presentation turned out really well and I felt great

Inquiry- Earth and Beyond…

This Term, we have been working on our Inquiry projects based on our Inquiry topic, Earth and Beyond. For my topic, I chose to learn about and work on Tornadoes. I presented my project by making a poster, creating an experiment and writing an explanation on how Tornadoes are formed. On the 24th of June, the whole 5/6 Level had a learning expo in our classrooms to show off our brilliant projects to the 3 /4 classes and any parents, teachers or friends who wanted to come in and have a look around. It went really well!! I hope that lots of people enjoyed our expedition and I hope that everyone who came learnt something new that they never knew before about Earth and Beyond!!

my inquiry project

my power point

On Monday june 24 the 5/6 had an expo for our inquiry project. I did mine on dendrology which is a scientist who studies trees. I presented my power point to a few parents and 3/4s. I think that all the 5/6’s did a very good job at the expo.

Inquiry Reflection

This term, the concept of our inquiry was earth and beyond. We all got to choose a topic about earth and its features. Atmosphere really interested me! We got to make a presentation for our topic to show to parents and other classes.

 

For my presentation I did an information report for my big question “How does the Atmosphere help us”, a Glogster for my contributing questions and a poster for a diagram to show what each part of the layer in the atmosphere does to help us.

 

All of this work was then presented in a exhibition to parents and other classes. They came around to see everyone’s work and what we have learnt. When people came around to your presentation, you would have to explain to them what you did for your project. They would ask questions and leave comments for how much they liked your work.

 

This terms inquiry was a really fun and I really enjoyed presenting it to the other classes and parents!!

Inquiry Reflection

This term, the concept of our inquiry was earth and beyond. We all got to choose a topic about earth and its features.

For the topic I thought that volcanoes would be fun and interesting and fun to learn about, so I choose to study about volcanoes and make a presentation to show to parents and other classes.

I made a Glogster that answered all my small questions, I also did an explanation to answer my big question and I did a poster with pictures and diagrams.

I think that in the end my presentation turned out well and got a lot of great comments from parents, other classers and classmates.

Inquiry Expo!

On the morning of June 24th there was a Inquiry Expo. It was lots of fun presenting our work to all the parents and students. For inquiry I did volcanology. I had fun showing my project and volcano model. It was also fun helping my broken armed friend with her experiment. It was cool watching my volcano attempt to erupt. When we were trying to build and create our  posters or models I thought it was great!

Pesenting my work!

5/6’s Expo Day

On the 24th of June the 5/6s had a learning expo to present all of their inquiry learning for term2 . I was learning about ‘How the Weather Changes’. I presented a diorama based on the ‘Water Cycle’ and wrote an explanation on how it works. When someone came to my station I would show them my water cycle and then read them my explanation. I think that the day was really great because I presented very well and people were giving me warm feedback. Something I enjoyed was that the preps came to see my presentation and I taught them something new that was part of their inquiry too. I loved learning about the weather and I hope I can do something like this again soon.
