WALT:  gather information

Description:  Kerri (cooking)- Every Wednesday we have been learning about the inquiry process while cooking different dishes from around the world. We have thought about and chosen a question that we are interested in. This is to help us find out and understand more about food and cultures from around the world. Then we started researching, gathering information, and moved through the ‘Get it, Sort it, Use it’ inquiry model.


Matrix showing what you think and what your inquiry teacher thinks.


Get It, Sort It, Use It Model 


1. What are you most proud of? I'm most proud of getting lots of get it information because I usually I would just go to one or two site's but this time I went to at least five.

2. What did you find challenging? The thing that challenged me the most was working in a team to cook.

3.  My next ‘Get It’ goal is? My next get it goal is to learn about different foods around the world. (This time I did desserts)

Cautionary Tale

W.A.L.T: To entertain 

Task: We had a choice to do Do's and Don'ts or Cautionary tale. I did a Cautionary tale.

Description: I don't know why I did a Cautionary tale. We read a book called once upon slime.Thats how we got the idea.

Here is my story!!!

If you hit and kick you would want to be hit and kick again. Bob went round the school hitting and kicking everyone even the teachers. Bob was the badest boy in school and he was the as bad as a murdering killing people. 

He always wore his P.J. He is as lazy as a sloth. All the school don't like Bob. His teacher said to Bob if you hit and kick someone again your feet and hands will be stitch together. Bob kicked someone and he got them stitch together. Now Bob was the best boy in school, but his writing was really really messing because his hands were stitch up. 

Feedback: Wow what a great story. That was very entertaining and was very interesting-Bella 

Evaluation: I think I could add a few more similes.

What If

 W.A.L.T: Entertain

Task: What if? you woke up and all the clocks were dead?

Description: We had to do a what if that our teacher told us to do. We got to make our own what if too.  

Here it is!!!

What if..........
you woke up and all the clocks in the world went dead.

I would go yo clock land and get back all the clocks, but it takes 10years that why know one gos there. Its I good thing that I don't have to go to school! YAY!!! I roll out of bed like a armadillo. I do like school so I'm going to get the clocks back.

Here is my what if!!!
What if all the Animals in the world would talk...

I would love it. I would be awesome because I could talk to my dog. ( Shes called Bella). I wonder what Bella would talk like. Would it be high or low? I want it to be true!!! I could talk to a elephant and a fox and lots and lots of animals. If it was true I would be as happy as a happy man. I would ask my dog do you like the food that we give you?

Evaluation: I think I could add so more similes and alliteration.

Feedback/Foward: WOW Sophie I like how you added lots of detail like when you said "I roll out of bed like a armadillo" because it adds lots of detail. I think you could add a bit more detail on your own one though. -Zara
