Problem Solving

Today in Maths I worked together with Marieta and Fui. Our answer is 20 because 2/3 of 7 = 4.6, 30 divide 3 = 10 then 10 x 2 = 20. We used fractions, divide by and time tables to solve this equation. It was very hard solving it. We used Mrs Anderson strategy to solve the problem.

Basic Facts 20

Today for Maths I have started and finished my Basic Facts 20. It was kind of easy because when we all first started I kind of did 20, but then changed it to 100 because I did the wrong box. I have learnt a lot of my subtraction than addition.

Basic Facts Boxes

Subtraction box 1
Subtraction box 2
Subtraction box 3
Subtraction box 4
Subtraction box 5
Subtraction box 6
Subtraction box 7
Subtraction box 8
Subtraction box 9
Subtraction box 10

Today for Maths I have finally finished my subtraction for Basic Facts Boxes. It was pretty hard because I did up to 100. I worked really hard to find the answer to finger the answer out.  The hardest box for me was box 10 because I had take away a lot from the big and from the small number. 

Why Do People Build Bridges

Why Do People Build Bridges?

Bridges are built for transportation, easy acces, and for boats to go under. They help us leave from point A to point B instead of: drowning, swimming and getting wet. It also allows a path way to be formed. Bridges were also made for a faster transport across rivers, lakes and the ocean.

Before vehicles and living things were built they had a punt to sit on, and a chain to pull that cost money. If you let go you get pulled back. Most people didn’t really by it so they swam. Most people made it and the others don’t. That is called a New Zealand disease. The meaning to a New Zealand disease is how people drown from getting across the water, and the water is deep or low.

As you may know bridges help a lot of people around the world. They have different shapes, materials and are in different places. A very well known bridge is the Golden Gate Bridge. It is very 2737 tall. There a different types of bridges that are built in different countries, like a suspension, truss, and an arch bridge.

Bridges used today, but bridges are built for transportation, easy acces, and for boats to go under. It helps us leave from point A to point B. It also gives us faster transportation.

This week and last week, I have being working on a explanation about Bridges. I used have 5 paragraphs including the conclusion and introduction. I have learnt a lot about bridges because I researched about bridges and types of bridges. I also added an example about the Golden Gate Bridges because that bridge is very well known in the world and in America.

Michel Mulipola

Today we had Michel Mulipola visiting our school. We also had Duffy assembly. He is a Samoan. He talked about his love of comics, WWE, Avengers/ Comics, Tekken 7, School Journey and so on. I got very inspired of the Comic Books he did. My favorite Comic is when he did the WWE, because the drawing looked very cool. My other one was the Avengers one because I love watching the movie and Avengers Infinity War. My favorite ones are Black Panther and the Flash because there super powers are very cool. He also showed us a slide show about his comic books and famous people holding the Comic Book.

Wheel Words

Today I played a game called Wheel Words. We worked together with Rotorua and my group. I found 9 words out of 40. I used 3 hints. The root word was Closeness. If you don't know the meaning to root words it means that, all of the words that was on the wheel makes up a word. On the 4 letter word I got 4/18, 5 letter words I got 2/8 and for 6 letter words I got 2/9.
