We think peace is?

This week in Inquiry me and Avalon have being working on We think peace is for 2 days and finished it 2 days later. We decided to do Martin Luther King, jr because he is a inspiration and helped people today to have freedom. I did some drawings that is about peace and I thought about doing drawings about peace that came from my heart. It was pretty easy because I love drawing and also finding facts about a inspiration person around the world. In our google slide it had facts, drawings, 25 word summary, collage and the meaning to the Chinese symbol. We also gave some writing on some slides explaining about peace or where peace comes from. On the collage I have decided to do a hand and a light sky because it is my hand giving respect and giving my hand to god.

I have decided to do an Informal text. This was kind of easy because everyone in my Reading group worked together on some of the sentences. I have learnt more about a Formal letter because I rarely do Formal letters.

On Thursday we had inter school Netball. This was placed at the AMI courts in Glen Ines. It was really fun. We had to 2 teams for year 7/8 and 5/6. My team got 1 win against our school and a tie with Tamaki Primary for our first game. The rest of our games we lost. My position was GS because I love shooting. My partner was Tiava. Her position was GA which is Goal Attack and My position was Goal Shooter. I have learnt and experience a lot at this trip. My team had 8 players with 1 sub each round and game. Our coach was Mr Oglive and the other year 7/8 was Mrs McCLean. 

3D Design/ Tech

Today at Tech we made a 3D person or character. I have decided to do the Zombie from Minecraft because I love playing Minecraft and the reason why I chose to the Zombie is, because most people weren't going to do it. I was trying to copy a Minecraft Zombie. I have learnt, how to use the tools and to rotate and using my mouse to look around my character. We also got to have lessons to help us practice using the tools.

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.
