Learner dispositions

I think that I am a self directed learner because I know where to work so I get my work done

Time: I allways finish my work on time

Choices: I allways try to sit in a good place but sometimes my friends follow me.

To be able to move to being a self agent learner I must allways be ready for my day

Time: I must allways finish my priority sand specials in the time given. 

Choices: I must allways sit next to drivers.

This is what I am going to do to move to being a self agent learner:

Stats sharp shooting

Statistics WALT calculate the mean, median, mode and range for a set of data. 

TASK Elly and Troy want to find out once and for all: which Activity Group has the overall best score, (mean) which Activity Group has the highest middle number, (median) what score was the most common, (mode) which activity group has the highest range. (range) In everyday life people collect data to look for trends and make decisions. In order to analyse the information, we need to understand the different ways to lOOK at the data. 
Success Criteria you will know you are successful when: calculate the mean by adding up all the data (9 + 4 + 4 + 5 + 8 = 30) then divide the total by how many numbers there were (9, 4, 4, 5, 8 = 5 numbers so 30 ÷ 5 = 6). calculate the median by ordering all numbers from smallest to biggest then selecting the middle number (4, 4, 5, 8, 9 = 5 is the middle number). If there are 6 numbers e.g. 4, 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, then the median is halfway = 5.5. calculate the mode by identifying which number occurs most often (4, 4, 5, 8, 9 = 4 because there are two of them). You can have more than one mode. calculate the range by finding the difference between the highest and lowest numbers (9 - 4 = 5).

Air rifle Data:44,41,33

 My difference in range is 44 and 33

My median number is 41

My mean is about 39

My groups mean number is almost 36

My groups median is 32

My groups range is 7 and 36

My groups mode is 21 23 and 46

I know I got all mine right because I calculated it about three times


WALT: present
Success Criteria:
Know your stuff 
Loud clear voice
Share the main points
Make eye contact
Make sure every member participates

Self assessment: i think we did well but we did not do an important question wich is why do glow worms

I used a loud clear voice

I shared the main points

Made eye contact and we made sure  every member participates.

In catch me if you can I have been practising using quick sharp movement to get free for a pass. So that means getting away from the defender and hopefully closer to the goal.

Milania 5 takes long way home

Milania's intrepid outing began when mum Kamilla took her and two friends, plus Kamilla's 19-year-old niece Danielle, to watch a movie at the Auckland waterfront on a recent busy Sunday.
"We'd been at the Lantern Festival and I'd heard there was a kid's movie on at the Wynyard Quarter. So I decided to take the children to see it."
With the three children and Danielle, Kamilla went to an information centre on the waterfront to ask about the film.
"They were only about a metre behind me. I thought Milania was just an arm's reach away." But setting out for Princes Wharf, Kamilla realised Milania was missing.
"I asked the others if they knew where she was; but they didn't. So we started frantically looking." But Milania was nowhere to be seen.
Security staff reviewed CCTV footage, which revealed Milania had looked away at the moment the others went into the centre and it showed her looking around, confused, and scootering off in the opposite direction.
Kamilla called the rest of Milania's family and they came immediately to join the search. After about an hour, the police were called.
One of the officers asked if there was any chance of Milania having gone home. Kamilla thought it unlikely but went with an officer to their home almost 7km away.
"I left the other children with my friend, and drove home in the car. The officer said it was time for us to alert the media and get a helicopter out. That really hit me hard."
They arrived at the family home, but Milania was nowhere to be seen. As they were driving back, a policewoman saw a small child four doors from the home, sitting on a footpath.
"She asked me 'is that her'," said Kamilla. And it was and she was very tired and quiet, but calm. The first thing she said to me was 'you lost me Mum'!
Milania explained she'd lost sight of the group and thought they must have headed home. "So she decided to scooter home to find us. She had to cross some of Auckland's busiest streets all by herself."
Milania's journey is all the more remarkable as she has been to the Wynyard Quarter only two or three times this summer.
Asked if she was scared or sad during her epic journey, Milania responded: "I cried, but just a little."
1) Do you think Milania did the right thing? No I don't think she did the right thing. What could she have done instead? She should just have waited outside the info centre or she could have gone back inside the info centre and checked again and then asked an adult for help. 2) What are some potential dangers that Milania faced? Cars could have hit her, she could have got kidnaped and she could have got run over. 3) Define Frantically and what is another word for it that you could use. You could use desperately.
