The week end

On the weekend I heard a big noise
my mum was yelling at the top of her voice
I am coming soon Mum .
She is annoying, some times very annoying.
but the thing that I hate the most is when my mum yells.
So I fell a sleep again. Jaap, my brother,again yelled " Rhys! Wake up. I have found a new game
and it is called From The Depths". It is a ship war game.
So now I am awake. I get up and and I say to my brother," Get off the computer. It's my turn 
or I will tell Mum.Then he gets off and I do my mathletics. Soon I stop doing mathletics
and I play my game called Trials Evolution Gold Edition. I played that for half an hour.

Term 1 Week 7

This week I have been learning about place value in maths.  For this we spent some time on the mat for a while working things out together but when we got used to the strategy we went on to individual work.  the task we needed to do was fill out this evidence form and screen record our self while doing the task.  We needed to explain what we were doing so that we had a full understanding of this strategy. There were different levels of difficulty lvl1,lvl2,lvl3 and level 4.  Level 1 started with tens, level 2 with hundreds, level 3 with thousands and level 4 with ten thousands and decimals. We got a number and then we had to add 1,10,100,1000 or tenth more and less.  I understand this strategy a lot more now.  This is one of the few learning that I actually enjoy!
