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!

African Praise Poem

My Reflection

I have been learning to write an African Praise Poem.  I found this work easy because I listened to the teacher.  The best part of this is choosing my animal.  My next step is to use alliteration.  

Term 1 Week 6

Our class has been doing some art called a pepeha. A pepeha is a piece of art or writing describing where you come from, your home , your maunga (mountain) and your awa (river).  We have all drawn our pepeha and gone along the lines with vivid, but now all we need to do is colour with pastel. I'm nearly done while others aren't even close or finished. I'm enjoying this quite a lot considering how much work there is kind of...

Term 1 Week 5

A couple of days ago me and my class started a challenge called The Blue Whale challenge.  There are twelve challenges in this, there's one that you have to make a google docs and every page is a letter.  The first page is A the next B and after that C so it kept going until you got to Z.  Every page had to start with that letter and have something to do with blue whales.  My group have done about 5 challenges which is quite good compared to other groups. I really enjoyed this challenge because you have to be creative and you can't be wrong.
