market day

Today was our market day. The year 6's had the hall from 10:30-11:00. We had the hall because it was our day to sell the products we have been making. In my previous blog post I told you all about the process and now I'll tell you about the day........
I had 15 of my lolli-pops and they all sold out!They were $1 each but a few were 60c. This is a photo of my finished product and packaging!

My lollipop packaging

In class we are focusing on a new inquiry called designed to sell. We had to first think of a food product and make sure it met the criteria. like it needs to be kept up to 3 days and we can't work in groups bigger than 2. I chose as my product lollipops because I found it an interesting product and I like them.

For the first week we had to find out an ingredients list we will use, find out the cost of our ingredients, then bring in a few samples for some class members to taste test. We got them to fill out a form and review our product. We made changes if we had to.

For the next two weeks of homework we were focusing on advertising and packaging. We had to focus on creating a logo, brand,company name and package that best suited our product. I trialled a few and decided on a pig mould and making a pig wrapper out of tissue paper. This is the package for my lollipop with the logo on the belly.(My company name is lolly-licious. This is the final copy of what they a will look like!!)It has the ingredients and info on the tag/paper.

Pizza Persuasive

In class we went  to Pipi's pizza and for homework we had to design a new type of pizza flavour. Then in class we had to write some persuasive writing on our pizza to try and convince someone to buy it. After we had finished that, we had to put our writing on a Voki. This is the Voki I did saying my persuasive writing.         This is the picture of the pizza I wrote the Persuasive writing on!

My Story-Board-That

In class we have been learning about using speech marks and correctly using apostrophes. We had to create a Story-Board-That that included correct punctuation. My Story-Board-That is about a mum and her 2 kids going to a shop then the little girl is very naughty and gets told off!

Calendar Art

In school we have been making calendar art. We did Zen-tangling for our art, first we learnt to zentangle then we chose an animal outline, then we printed it or drew our animal. Next we used patterns like poke root, hollibaugh, zander, mist, crescent moon, florz, tipple, and static to fill our animal. Then we stuck it on coloured paper and went over it in black pen.
This is mine.
It's a sheep!

Strawberry Diorama

For our field to table inquiry we have been learning about strawberries. We visited Scott's Strawberry Farm to record information. When we had collected all our information we had to choose  way to share it, I chose to do a model/diorama.  These are the pictures of mine.

Geometric Patterns

Geometric Patterns

In maths we have been learning about 2D and 3D shapes, angles and degrees.  In class we made some Geometric patterns. The Tools we needed were: A ruler, our sheet of paper with the circle on it, a protractor and a sharp pencil, (if we wanted to colour it in then colouring pencils.)We had to find the middle of our circle and draw a straight line from the top to the bottom and from 1 side to the other. Then line up the middle of our protractor on the dot in the middle of the circle. Since we knew that 360 degrees was the whole circle then we split that into how many sides we wanted our circle to have. I chose to challenge myself and did 36 sides so every 10 degrees I drew a line. I haven't finished yet!!!
