NZ Parliament

Parliament

This term we have been learning about Parliament. We have looked at the difference between government and parliament, NZ parliament, who is in government, how our government works and we compared democracy to dictatorship.

Three things that I learned are NZ parliament are:

  • In dictatorship you can not chose you own movies and if you criticize the leader you will be put in jail.
  • I learnt that a lot of debating happens in the house and John Key sits in the fourth seat on the right.
  • It's not just one party in the house it is other parties too.

Here is the link to my compare and contrast map explaining the difference between democracy and dictatorship. my compare and contrast map

extended abstract


I can take action to improve the water cycle in Canterbury In this project I was working with Jacinta and we decided to create…A story book

Here is a link what we made.Our book!

In this project we decided that our success criteria were:  
A good Children’s Story needs...
Why is this important?
Theme and plot
It needs a plot and title or the reader will get confused and stop reading.
A point, lesson and promotion
There needs to be a point to the story and a lesson so when the person has finished reading they have learn’t something
Story structure
It will need structure to it as well because or there won’t be the main part of the story.
Characters
Make up your own characters to make the story more interesting!
Setting
It needs a setting. It could be in 1905 at war or the year 3000 in the future!
Overall our project met/do not meet this criteria because...It has a good theme and plot (going to the beach).  it has a good point/lesson/promotion (not to litter in our waterways) story structure introduction (meet kate and amy) problem (rubbish everywhere) and solution (they picked the rubbish up) characters (amy and kate) setting (beach, home, bedroom, walkway)

Student Led Conference

The things I enjoyed most about my SLC were:
Getting great feedback and reaction from my dad.


What went well and why?
Showing him my test result and what it means because i was a bit hesitant about mucking up.


What were the challenges you faced when preparing and presenting your SLC?
Because i'm new I had to delete some slides and think up a way to make specific slides work and still sound professional at the same time.


What changes would you make for next time and why?

Make the Whole thing a bit longer because i finished it early and had to give my dad a tour of my class to kill time.
