Inquiry :)

About inquiry: I'm in the lovely Graduation inquiry with Troy ( the best teacher in the world! ) And I am in the photo booth group with Rileigh-Kaye. With a giant piece of cardboard, PVA glue, 12 and a half printed graffiti paper and that's how we created the photo booth background!
We used blue paint and white paint but it's yet to be finished.... The photo booth frame. Inspired by the Instagram frame on the website.... That was Troys great idea!!!! Here it is

Reflection: We have made a lot of improvement. We have added features to the Instagram frame, cut and perfected the graffiti background. Then we made a photo booth sign indicating where the photo booth will stand.

< This is the finished frame and the background behind it.

< this is the photo booth sign made by Rileigh and myself.
How will this benefit/effect others? It will benefit and effect others in a good way because we are preparing one of the most special years for RSS's year 6's. Also, the props and background represent how we are young and fun so it gives us a bit of freedom.

What would you add/take away? I would love to add one of those arrows that flash and direct    passing people to where the photo booth is. But, I wouldn't mind taking off the finger prints but unfortunately we had to add them because there were already big black smudges!

When did you think your work would be done? I personally thought it would have been done round the middle of inquiry but we bearly got it finished on the last day. But Rileigh-Kaye and I are very proud of what we have done!

Bloom Questions 2- Buddy

#1 Create a character that could be Ash's best friend? I think my buddy (  Thomas ) could be Ash's best friend because Thomas could easily out run a lion, but, if it could not be Thomas it would have to be different of Ash. Nerdy, weak, asks less questions. Otherwise, I think ash can just chill with Ranan.

#2 Tell me another time when a person told you about a friend dying? That has never happened to me before.

#3 What do you think Ash was feeling when the Moran told his story? I think Ash could of felt a but emotional. Sad mainly. But I'm thinking that he was quite curious about what happened with the lion and his friend plus why did the lion attack? 

How would have you handled the situation when sempuku's friend died? It would have been sad and unfortunate that someone had died by Ash's worst nightmare.... The lion! And since you only just met the Moran people so it wouldn't of been terribly tear worthy.

Bloom Questions - Buddy

#1 Tell me another time you got attacked by an animal? I haven't really been attacked but since my dog, yogi, is a puppy he gets rough and starts having a fit if he doesn't get what he wants ( he is basicaly like a toddler ) so he bites.

#2 What would have happened if Ranan missed the shot at the baboon? Well, if it had missed the baboon could launch itself at Ash or Ranan and cause serious injuries or even death!

#3 Why did Ranan come back to save Ash? He didn't really leave him. He just went out a few metres away to find a rock to through at the baboon. But I'm taking it that Ranan did kinda ditch Ash but at least he made up for it by conquering the beastly baboon.

#4 Why do you think Ash didn't want to sleep in the hut? Okay, so there is one OVIOUS reason..... The hut is made out of poo so why would you want to sleep in there, and there was another man sleeping on the same mattress as home and his dad and another man is the same room also.

I think I am a Self Agentic learner because ( Troy said so ) and I am always trying my best and that I always get the job done in time but up to standard of the big boss ( troy )

The goal that I am currently working on is I consciously seek the cognitive wobble to enhance my learning. 

The things I need to do to achieve this goal are focusing on who my blockers and drivers are but also making sure I don't go off track around friends or classmates that will distract me, and to attempt to get myself deeper into the cognitive wobble. :D
