FDescription: Today me finis, Mike and Telina made a movie on the three different types of listening. Active listening, me two listening and busy listening

Big idea: Active listening is we're your really engaged and interested in what they are saying. Me to listening is where your story is more important the the other persons story and busy listening is when the thing you're do is more important the there story And your hardly listening to there story.

Fb I like how you shared parts for the movie
FF you need to have a louder voice

Evaluation: I think we did well at acting the different listening but we definitely need to speak louder cause I could only just hear us.
I also think that I'm going really well at being an active listener.

Description: In the past two week Max and I have been making a movie on the Treaty of Waitangi. We did it to show our understanding about the treaty of Waitangi. I'm at the Waitangi Marae and Max is in the newsroom. to get our information we watched I short Movie and then asked questions. Then we read websites to answer our questions. Max and I used the information we had collected and made a movie. Enjoy

Big idea: I learnt 5 new facts about Waitangi. One of them was that it wasn't a public holiday until the 6th of Febuary 1960 and that the Maori did not really understand the English language when the treaty was sighed.

Feedback/feedforward: maybe you both could speak a little louder but I think it was good because they were clever to use the green screen. Houston

Evaluation: I think we included a range of facts but we are not relational because we have two groups of two that relate so we are briging the gap between multi and relational. Next time I will try to get relational because we came so close this time.

Waitangi Day

RDescription: We watched a video about Waitangi Day. Then we had to think up some open questions about Waitangi. An open question is one that has more than 1 answer or has a long answer. We did not want to do a closed question.



1. Why did the English do the treaty rather than take all of the land? 
Because a war would have cost a lot of lives. English and Maori. 

2. When did the English completely colonise New Zealand?

3. When did Waitangi Day become a public holiday?
6th of Febuary 1960.

4. Why did the English want New Zealand?
Because they started to have to many people and the wanted to expand there horizons. 

5. Why was it made a public holiday?
Because it's important to be FREE.

6. How many chiefs in New Zealand were there at the time when the treaty was signed and who were the key players?
There were 1840 Cheifs in New Zealand at the time the treaty was signed but only approximately 500 Chiefs signed the treaty. James Reddy Clendon, Tamati Waaka Nene, Hone Wiremu Heke Pokai, Reverend Henry Williams, James Busby, Captain William Hobson and Lord Normanby were the key players in the treaty of Waitangi.

One Word

WALT: Set Goals

Description: Today we have been learning to set goals. It had to be one word long. My word is Balance. 
Because I want to spend the same amount of time on things I'm bad at and good at. Eg writing and maths. I spend more time on maths than on writing.
