Mathman - Warmup

Today for my maths warm up I played mathman. In the game I had to solve the equation given. I had to solve the fraction problems. I thought it was easy but when the levels went higher and higher it got harder.

Bethany Hamilton - Attitude Care Award

Today I have designed this poster for one of my attitude care awad task. I had to research someone who has faced some difficulties in there life but still has a positive attitude. I chose Bethany Hamilton. I learnt that she started competitive surfing at the age of 8 and she earned her first sponsorship when she was 9.

Confidence Care Award - How to stand up to bullies

Here I have made this poster about how to stand up to bullies. I have created this for my confidence care award. I don't think bullying is ok. It could hurt someones feelings and they would maybe want to transfer schools. If you see someone you can be a hero and back that person up.

Confidence care award - Teaching Mahdiya how to create a DLO

Today I was teaching Mahdiya what a Dlo is and how to create it. I did this for my confidence care award. I had to ask her questions about what she likes and what she is learning about at school.

Dance - Shapes

This morning we had dance. At dance we had to make different shapes using our bodies. We first warmed up to get our muscles loose. Then after that we watched a video that showed us what the free and bound flow is and how you make them. The free flow is when you move your body as if it was a made from rubber and the bound flow is when you move your body like a robot. Mataio and I had to make twisted, straight curved and angular shapes. We had to switch between high and low levels. A low level shape is a shape that is close to the ground and the high level shape is when you perform your shape in a high position. After that we had to combine groups and show each other our shapes that we had made. I thought Ofa and Josh's shapes were awesome and creative. My favorite part of dance is when we're making the different shapes with our partners. Dance was fantastic and I really enjoyed it.

World Of Maths

Yesterday LS1 and LS2 went to World of Maths. Charles the instructor got us into groups. Then we had to go off and play the math games. During World of Maths we used our Key Competencies, which are thinking, relating to others, using symbols, managing self and participating and contributing. My team and I collaborated and helped each other out on all the activities. When we did not have the same answer we had to negotiate. My favorite game was the word problem because we had to work hard and find the answer to the equation.

Today for writing we did similes for our language features. A simile is something that compares someone or something using the words 'like' or 'as'. For this task we had to match up the two things that go together.
