    Next term I will try to memorise more thing so that I can present better.

    I didn’t do too well. I wasn’t very enthusiastic and Ethan did most of the work.

    No because I never left my stall to get people.

    Show people the topic and show what I learnt.

    If people know about charities than they can donate in real life and leave lots of kids happy.

    I explained that you can donate resources aswell as money.

    What should I do next term better? I think something I should do better next time is to speak up because I don’t think people could hear me much.

    How well did I do today at expo? What I did well was presenting my work and sharing my ideas, but what I didn’t do well was trying hard. I knew because I didn’t have a headache.

    Do I see any patterns in what I did that was the same as others that helped me to be successful?

    What skills can I use next term that I used well today?

    What was important about the expo for you today?

    What did I explain to people today at the expo?

    1. I think I could improve on how my work looks and making it the best it can be because some of the pictures on my mood board had parts coming off and I am pretty sure that next time we have an inquiry expo there will not be any pictures hanging off.

    2. I think I did really well, I was able to answer any hard questions people threw at me ( mr. Price ) and I was able to tell them the background how it links and if I could answer my inquiry question and they all agreed with me on my answers.

    3. I did see a pattern and that was that I saw people going out and telling people come to my stand so that’s what I did

    4. I can use my skill of speaking loudly and clearly and making sure I know all my answers.

    I think next term I need to do better is get more people to come over to my table instead of staying behind the table at the expo.
    I think I was happy intell all the other kids and teachers came but I was stell confidence and I did not give up.
    I was explaining my charity we’ll not just saying my charity name and I was looking at other people work at less that what I think everyone was doing.
    Next term I will news the same skill as telling all my information and still explain all of it.
    Today at the expo the most importing thing was telling kids about my charity and teaching them.

    Expo day was a terrific success. It was great to see students sharing there learning and knowledge both with their peers, parents and teachers. Everyone should be proud of everything they have achieved.

  26. Cadence Sophie
    September 4, 2014 at 4:58 am

    I should fill in my mood board because I only had round about 18-20 pictures and I still had a little bit of space on it. I should also walk on talking more.

    I did fabulous because we answered all of the question that were given to me and I encouraged people to come to my stall.

    I saw people putting their mood boards on the wall behind them and they put put other things on the wall as well.

    Putting my things on the wall so I have a lot more space and room to put all of our stuff.

    Answering the questions because, so teachers know that we know our inquiry is about.

    I explained what my question was about on my mood board.

  27. September 4, 2014 at 4:59 am

    What should I do next term better? I think something I should do better next time is to speak up because I don’t think people could hear me much.

    How well did I do today at expo? What I did well was presenting my work and sharing my ideas, but what I didn’t do well was trying hard. I knew because I didn’t have a headache.

    Do I see any patterns in what I did that was the same as others that helped me to be successful? I did bracelets and then I saw that most of the people did it.

    What skills can I use next term that I used well today? Asking kids to my stall to ask questions.

    What was important about the expo for you today? For people in the community to come and view our inquiry work.

    What did I explain to people today at the expo? I explained about my inquiry question, my charity, my inquiry book,my compare & contrast and my moodboard.

    September 4, 2014 at 4:59 am

    What should I do next term better? Things to fix
    My pictures on my mood board because I had 12 pictures on it. I also had to put my work neatly in my book.

    How well did I do today at expo? Explain your answers
    I had a issue today at expo and it was when people took our wrist band and we couldn’t sell them to people. I did well when I spoke we’ll to people who came to our stall and Jordan was shy of speaking to people. I also put my work well with presenting my work as I showed people in that way.

    Do I see any patterns in what I did that was the same as others that helped me to be successful?
    I was successful because of how I set up my work at expo.

    It wasn’t enough time to do the rest SORRY mrs Joyce.

  29. Cara
    September 4, 2014 at 5:00 am

    I should fill in my mood board because I only had 50 pictures and I still had a little bit of space on it. I should also work on talking to the people that ask questions because I was only saying that if they donate they get a bracelet.

    I did fabulous because we answered our questions very well and we got a lot of donations from lots of people and some of them gave us the rest of there fake money so we got $24.50 all together.

    I saw people putting there mood boards up behind them so because I was up against a wall I put my mood board behind us so that we had more space on our table and we also had an idea of putting some of our bracelets up on the wall behind us as we’ll.

    Putting things up behind me so I have more space on my table and I could make bracelets to give out to people that give us questions to answer

    Answering the questions because so that teachers can see if we actually know what our inquiry question is about.

    I explained what I had on my mood board and we also included the compare and contrast and we said what side is our school is on and the side that India’s school in on and we shared our facts about India
    and we included our charity as we’ll.

    1 I should work with my partner better.

    2 I think I went really well at expo today because I explained my answers well and I can answer my question
    3 I encouraged people to my stall like other people did
    4 Encourage people to my stall.
    5 The most important part for me was explaining my thinking and about my charity.
    6 My charity, my charity started by a war in china a man named Dr.clark take action.

  31. Phoebe
    September 4, 2014 at 5:01 am

    What should I do next term better? I think next term I should be more prepeared on the questions that people ask me because at one stage I could not answer one that mrs Bradbury asked me and it was who is Syria in war with.

    How we’ll did I go today at the expo? I think that I went well because me and Harry worked well as a group because if I was having trouble answering a question he would help me and it would also be the other way round if he needed help.

    Do I see any patterns in what I did that was the same as others that helped me be successful? I saw Andrew encourageing people to come over to have a look at his stall so me and Harry did that too.

    What skills can I use next term that I used well today? I think that I could use one skill that I think I was good at to day and it is working well as a group and I can also use it on lots of other stuff and not just on the inquiry expo.

    What was important about the expo for your today? For me it was when I ran out of the braclets.

  32. Holly
    September 4, 2014 at 5:01 am

    Hi everyone,

    What should I do next term better? Things to fix
    I think that next term I could improve when I talked because we would generally had two people at our stall and then in the middle of when I was talking another few people would come and ask me what was my question and it was really annoying because I was still talking to some other people. So I think that at the next expo we have I will invite all the people that look to be coming our way and then I will tell them all about the background and the charity but if some people still come when I’m talking I’ll kindly ask them to go to the stall next to us then to come back and ask there question.

    How well did I do today at expo? Explain your answer
    I was energetic when I was trying to get heaps of people to come to our stall and donate to our charity because I would yell out too all the people near and get them to come over and find out about our save the children charity I was responsible when I was talking too all the other people and I would support the people that looked shy and uncomftorble to go and see the rest of the amazing inquiry that people have done.i tryed hard to answer the other peoples questions and when rebbeca symonds the newspaper article person came over I made shore that she had a bras let all the information we were giving out and I told her every thing I new about save the children.

    Do I see any patterns in what I did that was the same as others that helped me to be successful?
    I made sure that I asked all the people if they wanted a bracelet or any Imformation sheets and by doing that it Increeced my donations largely, I made sure that I promoted other peoples inquiry and i welcomed them to my stall and that I was telling them just about every thing I knew I also realised that I should ask the people if they have any questions to ask and that way they felt welcome an comfortable and like they’ve learned heaps.

    What skills can I use next term that I used well today?
    Make sure that I tell everyone about what I’ve learnt before they aks questions.

  33. Kane
    September 4, 2014 at 5:03 am

    I should stay at my table and not leave my partner to all the work and the talking. I did pretty well because I answered a lot of questions well. I saw people incur edge people to come to there store. I can incur edged people to come to my store. That I answered people questions very well and I enjoyed it. I explained how BOCEP is helping Sudan people to get a better education and with out a education they can’t get a job.

  34. Kate
    September 4, 2014 at 5:04 am

    What should I do better next time? I should talk slower because today I talked a bit too fast and people only got a bit of my explanation of my inquiry. The good thing is they still enjoyed it and during the expo I realised I needed to slow down so I did. Next time I need to realise to talk slower straight away.

    How did I go? I went well because I was able to answer all the questions. One that was hard was why do you think schools in Bali don’t have walls? I answered to let light in and to keep cold because in Bali they have a tropical climate which means it is hot in Bali.

    What patterns did I see that I used that was the same as others that helped me be successful? I saw that people asked others if they would like to see their stand so I tried it and we got heaps of people. Before we tried it we had hardly any people come so it really helped.

    What active learner skills did I use today that I can use next time? I was speaking up and encouraging others to donate to my charity which are great skills when presenting something so it would be great if I remember to do it next time.

    What was important in the expo for me? It was important when all of the charity cards ran out because it ment people were interested in my presentation and wanted to donate.
