Fence Post: Problem

Today during maths we were to finish off tasks we did not finish either this week's tasks, or the previous weeks tasks. In this problem we needed to find out how many corner posts and regular posts would Savelina have to buy to enclose two adjacent paddocks. We found this task quite easy and hard at the same time because there were some bits that we struggled with, like writing a blurb in the DLO. Although in the end we solved it. We learnt a new word, adjacent. It means something or someone next to each other. For this activity, I worked with Jack, Sanujan, and Ofa.

Salary Problem

This week for maths we were finishing maths task that we didn't get to do before. In this task we were to solve a word problem that involves money. Mataio and I worked collaboratively to solve this. I found this task quite easy because it mostly involved addition. Maybe next time I could try and use my times tables to solve it.

Fake IPhone Messages

Today for writing we were making our own conversations using a website called IPhone Fake Text. Once we finished our conversation we were to use punctuation that we would use in a story. We also needed to make sure we didn't use TV characters and our real names. This was a different and fun activity that I really enjoyed.

Summer/Winter Juxtaposition

As I jubilate out of my bed I hear the birds carolling and chirping away.    
The bright leaves rush and gush in the breeze as they sway.

The sun peered over me like it was just waiting to give me a hug.
I say hello, stride to the kitchen, and boil the jug.

I assemble and eat my breakfast, and prepare to brush my teeth.
I then walk outside, and put up the Christmas wreath.

Then I kiss my mum goodbye and dash my way to school.
But I make sure to check my bag, because that’s the school day rule.

I struggle to wake up, as I resist to get out of my warm bed.
I was stuck in the rain yesterday, now I have a fever, and a boiling head.

I dawdle through the icy smooth floor, chuck on my uniform, and go to boil the kettle.
I felt like I slept for days, maybe I’ll even get a sleeping medal.

I chuck on my bag, and scurry my way out the door.
I need to get to school fast, because I make it back home at quarter past four!

I have half an hour left, so I need to run.

Although I forgot my lunch, looks like I need to buy a cinnamon bun
This week we our class was doing poetry. First as a whole class we read a poem called Two Day Wonder. For our task we were to write our own poem about going to school in Summer and Winter. We also had to make sure our poem had a Juxtaposition. Juxtaposition means putting two opposites side by side to make a contrast. Jack, Sanujan and I thought we could challenge ourselves by making it rhyme. I learnt what Juxtaposition means.

This week for inquiry the other task was to create a DLO on the 7 things that you can use to figure out if something is alive, we can remember the things by remembering a name, M.R.S G.R.E.N. The M is for movement, the R is for respiration, the S is for senses, G is for grow, R is for reproduction, E is for excretion and N is for nutrition. I completed this DLO with the help of Alex.

Skeletal System - Anatomy

Today for inquiry we were learning about the human skeletal system. We were to go and read about the skeletal system and then play a game. In this game we needed to assemble the bones in the right place. Our challenge was to get it in twenty six tries. My favorite part of the game was that it helped me learn more about the human body.
