Maths Problem

Today we had to solve our own problem solving we had made with our partner. Me and Dallas had to create our own problem solving so we could use our place value strategy's to solve it. After we had done all the writing we had to record it with screencastify. The difficult thing was that other people were talking alot and I needed a clear space to record my problem. The thing I really enjoyed about this was solving my problem because we thought very hard to solve it.

Kiwi Can Reflection

Today we had our first week with kiwi can. Our Kiwi can instructors today were Mr Matt, and Mrs Lilly. For our topic today we learnt to encourage others in sport games. For our energizer today we played move if you... the point of the game was for the person in the middle to say ' move if you ' then they had to ask their question. After our energizer we were talking about what the word ' encourage ' means. We said that encourage means cheering other people on, helping others when they need help. Then for our activity we played a game called 10 second tag. For that activity we split up into three teams. Team blue, Red and green, I was in the blue team. The point of the game was to tag everyone with the ball we had without moving around only passing to one another. We had our first match against team red. Since team red wanted to start with the ball we let it to them. After a while we had won that match we got 5 players out. After that match we went to the finals. When team green and red had their match team green took it with victorious. Then we had our final match. The victory team of that match was my team, team blue. Then the other group of our class was going to have their turn at kiwi can. The fun thing about kiwi can today is that we all encouraged others to build self esteem.

Winter Olympic's comparison

For Inquiry today we have been comparing two different mascots from the winter Olympics using a venn diagram. So what we had to do was to compare the current mascot 'Soohorang' to a different winter Olympic mascot, our group decided to choose Bely Mishka. In my group there was Te pounamu, Joshua W and Me. We chose Bely Mishka because he was also one of the winter Olympic mascots. I learnt that Bely Mishka was one of the mascots in the winter Olympics in 2014 from Sochi in the city of Russia. I really enjoyed making our venn diagram because we learn't a lot about Soohorang and also from Bely Mishka.

Rugby Competition

Today I chose to go to the Rugby inter-school competition also at the competition there was a rippa rugby girls team. We went to the Dunkirk reserve across our school to compete, our games were 20 minutes long. Our first match was against Glen Taylor school. There school was really hard because they had really big people in there team. We kicked off the ball and we rushed really quickly to get it but unfortunately they got it before we could get to the 10 meter line. Most of us tried going for there legs and it only worked sometimes. 10 minutes have past then Glen Taylor had scored a try the scores were 17 - 10. Then after that match we had a bye so we were training for our next match. The next school was against Glen Innes school. Glen Innes school wasn't that hard as Glen Taylor because we kept stepping and running very fast but then one person took the ball off of us but then we got it back and we scored a try by Jullian. But before Jullian scored a try someone ran through all of us and scored. Our third game was against glen brae, Glen Brae wasn't quite hard because most of us were spreading out we made our tackles. Unfortunately they scored a try before we could chase them done. After they kicked the ball to us Lyric caught it and ran very fast to score a try and he did. The scores were 12 - 10. Our final game was against Tamaki Primary. Tamaki was a really hard school to beat because most of their team mates looked like people from college and also most of us were afraid to make the tackle because we knew that they would just ignore us and just run straight through most of us. We all had a fantastic day and thank you to Mr Oglivey, Mrs Caroline and Mrs Ally.

Today for maths I chose to play transum to help out with my times tables. The transum game I was playing today was called Tables conga. Tables conga is a game where you had to collect the right numbers that was in the 7 times tables. This was a really tricky game because their were lots of bots trying to stop me. If it touched one of them I had to start again. I had to start again nearly 4 times because I couldn't find the right number and the because of the bots trying to stop me from collecting them. The easy thing was their was bushes their to protect me from the bots trying to get me.
