Fractions Maths Portfolio Sample

This term in maths we have been learning about fractions. I have been learning about improper fractions, proper fractions, mixed fractions and how to convert improper fractions into mixed fractions. We got given a rich task to....  

 Here is my working out. 

I first got all the amounts I needed, then I saw that 2/4 was the same as half of 300 and half of 300 is 150 and half of 150 is 75. Then I did 5 divided 300 and that was 60 and so 1/5 of 300 is 60 and 1/4 of 300 is 75. Then I did 10 divided by 300 and that was 30. Then I doubled 30 because there were 2/10 and that was 60.

Evaluation: I think that I did a good job but next time I good explain a bit more and when I got stuck I keep on going.

Feedback/Feedforward: Great job sophie I think you did great but next time you could show your working a bit more so that if I wanted to work it out i could come here to get help-Bella M

Sunday, 8 May 2016


Today I worked on my mixed, proper and improper fractions. I did three quizzes and I got ten out of ten on them.

I think that I don't need to work on this anymore because I can do it without  thinking about it.


Last week we did a Spelling test and we had to write 300 words but we did it in two days so on the first day we did 150 words and on the 2nd day we did 150 words as well. On the first half of the test I got 5 wrong and on the second half 13 wrong. The second half is harder.

I think that I need to practice some words but I think I did well overall.


Last week we did a handwriting test. We got given a poem and I piece of paper and we had five minters write it. The poem had to be fast, accurate and legible. After 5 minters were over we choose what level we were on and if we got more than 40 you were on level 4 and if you got more than 30 you were on level 3 and it kept going down. Then we choose what our goal would be and my goal was on placement. Here is my test.

I think I did a good job overall but next time I could be a bit faster to get it done and to work on my placement.

Bayan Tree Art

Last term we did some art with Anna. First we looked at some picture of a Bayan tree and a Bayan trees has the roots hanging branches instead  of under the earth. Then we drew the Bayan tree in pencil. After we did the pencil we painted black paint over top of the pencil. Then we coloured in the gaps with pastel and we blended two or three colours together. We made a sunset with three colours. Then we used different blues to make the water and made a shadow.

I really liked my art but next time I could make the gaps bigger because it took awhile to colour in.
