Active thinking

Intergrated Learning

W.A.L.T: I can describe the influences on making choices.

One of the big influences would be your family because your parents are responsible for you so they won't let you do things that could hurt you.
Another big influence is your friends because you want to fit in and be popular and you want your friends to appreciate you.

My next step is to be able to describe the influences without rambling on.

My self directed learning

We have been learning about Anzac Day 
I think that his poem is about all the Anzacs that died in the war and now we have to uphold what the Anzacs fought and died for.

A Lark looks like a sparrow with yellow or brown on the front.Despite What was going on around the larks they still carried on.

My next step is to think about why the author used the lark.

My information report

W.A.L.T: Be specific and use linking sentences to join our paragraphs.

Decisions- we all have to make them at some point in our life.Friends,Family,law,media,role models these are just some of the influences that help us make decisions.Some influences are good and some are bad.

Friends are a major influence in a young teenagers life.They can put peer pressure on you which is usually a bad influence.But friends can also be a good influence for example they can help you out when you have to make a decision out side of school.Friends help you with SOME of the big decisions.

Family helps you with all of he big decisions such as school,money and your life.They can help you by making sure you do the right thing.Your family knows what's best for you.Your family also has to teach you about what's right and what's wrong.

Right and wrong.(the law) is a "major" influence.Every second of every day you have to follow the law.You might have friends or family that want you to break the law.What would you do?The law stops you doing things that could hurt you or other people.

All of these influences help you make decisions.When you have to make a decision make sure you take into account all of your possible influences  
But remember the choice is up to you!!!

Visual Language

W.A.L.T:Identify several visual and verbal features in advertisements and explain the impact they have on the overall message.

The advertisement is for coke 
The target audience is kids that get pocket money or adults
The information that it gives you is nothing
The add try's to get you to by it is that it has enjoy and it has a bright red colour
The thing I would change is I would put more colour in to it to make it more appealling

My reading

W.A.L.T: Question the Authors purpose 

 I have learnt that Kenny Melrose is 12 years old and he is a tough boy
I have learnt that Charlotte Melrose is 8 and she has black curly hair
I think that the author is trying to tell the reader that Kenny is naughty and that the orphanage they live in is horrible
My next step is to think more deeply about what the author is trying to tell the reader
