Grass hopper tennis

WALT: improve our small ball skills like catching, throwing, and hitting.

Description: We have been participating in a tennis programme with Big John (John Salisbury) from Tennis Manawatu. He has taught us some tennis skills that help with controlling and hitting the ball
Why? To reflect on how we are going with the tennis skills we have learnt. We will share this during our Student Led Conference.
When? Week 8
Who? The World

Task: complete the rubric with targets to show your reflection. Make a comment to the questions below?

What are you most proud of and why?
I'm most proud of being able to do a temple throw in grass hopper tennis because I never new what it was and I didn't know how to do it and then I found out I'm pretty good at it.

What challenged you the most and Why?
That would probably be cut the cheese because I never really have been able to do it because of the way it was invented.

Next time, what is a goal you can work towards?
Maybe getting heaps of practice on cut the cheese.

Here's a pic of me doing grass hopper tennis.

 Walt Inform
use a range of verbs (evaporate, melt, etc.) i think i did an ok job on that

use a variety of specific vocabulary (matter, solid, liquid, gas) i dont really know about that one

add significant detail to describe each part (examples, diagram, giff) i did a great job on that
vary sentence starters yes now i think i did a good job on that
organise my ideas into at least 5 paragraphs i dont think i did any of that at all

I'm going to talk about insulation. Have you ever seen a house being made and wondered why they put pink candy floss in the walls? Well those wondering days are over because I am going to tell you why.

The cotton candy ( not real candy, it's actually pink batts ) that they put in houses helps keep the house warm in winter and cold in summer, its called insulation. Insulation is something that keeps warmth or coldness in our clothes houses and other stuff, Insulation also helps live so we can carry on with life. Houses in the olden days didn't have pink bats and in a home when you've got the fire going the heat travels up through the roof so the had grass roofs or houses made of mud. Crazy right?but it's actually really clever because when dried is a good insulator because it keep warmth in on cold day and coldness in on a hot day. 

Do you know how space men keep warm in space? In the space mans space suit there is a cooling chamber and a warming chamber. From the chambers there are tubes going all over the space mans body. The tubes carry warm and cold liquid to keep the space man warm. 

Seals yous'e a different type of insulation and so do other Atlantic animal. This insulation is called blubber. Blubber is a strong layer of fat that atracts the sun to keep the seals warm. If we didn't have insulation we wouldn't be here, Because we would of died of hunger and being dehydrated or frozen to death.

feedback: well done but you can do better. better luck next time amy
