SLJ How Good is your Memory?

I completed the summer learning journey tasl called how good is your memory.

First I watched some short videos explaining what a mnemonic is, and an example of one. A mnemonic is a short phrase to help remembera hard word, for example: said, Susan Always Is Dopey.

Then, I took a video of myself showing that I learnt the mnemonic, my mnemonic helps remember the colours of the rainbow, ROYG G.BIV.

I enjoyed this task becuase it helper me remeber the order of the rainbow.


SLJ Smart Chips

I completed the summer learning journey activity called smart chips.

First I listened to the christmas carol called a pukeko in a ponga tree, also known as “the twelve days of christmas.”

Then I used smart chips to fill in the missing parts of the song, For example : On the first day of christmas my true love gave to me, a … in a ponga tree, “pukeko” would fill in the gaps. I completed the whole task.

I enjoyed this task because I got to learn a new christmas song in Te Reo maori. I think that I did a good job at memorising the order of the song.

SLJ Mars Rover

For the summer learning journey I designed my own mars rover.

I needed to use shapes and tools to create my mars rover, I decided to name it WALL-I because I got insporation from the movie WALL-E. I added different types of things to my rover including wheels, test tubes and cameras for eyes. A fact about my rover is that the box inside the body is used to test things that it can find on mars.

I enjoyed this activity becuase it was fun learning about mars. I think I could try and expand my learning and try to learn about more thing in space.

SLJ Cool Character

For the summer learning journey I created my own character using materials from outside.

I went out into my backyard and collwcted some materials to assemble my character. I used items like flowers and leaves to make this.

I made a fairy and her name is Blossom. I used a sunflower for her T-shirt, white flowers for her skirt, and leaves for her wings.

I enjoyed this activity becuase I got ot spend time outside looking for items to create my own character.
