Stage 7 – Word Problems


Task description: This week during Maths, we are learning to finding the appropriate strategy to solve each word problem, solve problems that involve multiplication and division, and use equations to express a problem. My maths group worked on some stage 7 word problems. It was really fun and easy for me but my friend said it was really confusing and hard at first but I answered all the questions and showed her how I did it and that helped her a lot and she started to try and find out ways to solve them.

She was really close to giving up but I told her “Maths can sometimes be really tricky, but that doesn’t mean you give up, what I mean by this is you gotta give it a couple tries before being perfect at it and it can takes some time to solve it but the more you try the closer you’ll get,” and that seem to help her a lot which was kinda my highlight for me maths today. One thing I really love about today’s maths work is that you get to make your own question that you can give to your friends to try and figure out. 

My highlight was being able to solve all the problems really fast even though my friend was stuck on it for a bit. I had a really good maths session again and I loved how me and my friends shared our ideas with each other so I don’t have a low light from today’s maths lesson. As I said before it was a good maths lesson and I don’t have anything to work on today. After that I completed the task, and I posted it on our blog. I enjoyed this task very much, and I hope to do more like this soon. Hope you enjoyed. Please leave a comment; thank you for visiting my blog.

My quote of the day: The more you try the closer you get, no matter how many tires it takes never give up!

Word Problems

Task description: This week during Maths, we are learning to finding the appropriate strategy to solve each word problem, solve problems that involve multiplication and division, and use equations to express a problem. My highlight was being able to solve the first question even though our group was stuck on it for a bit and showing my group how I did it. I had a really good maths session and I loved how well our group shared their ideas with each other so I don’t have a low light from today’s maths lesson. As I said before it was a good maths lesson and I don’t have anything to work on today. After that I completed the task, and I posted it on our blog.

Media Detective


Task description: This week during Cybersmart, we are learning about Smart Media, and the question of, What is Media? Learn how to figure out what a piece of media is all about. Ask questions to understand who made it, why it was made, and if it’s something they can trust.

For this challenge we learned about “Smart Media”. That is, being Cybersmart when consuming or creating media. To start off, as a class we had to chat through a presentation, and watch a youtube video. After that it was time to be a “Media Detective” so get out our critical magnifying glass and have a look at these pieces of media. We are going to think about the purpose for why they have been created.

High light was being able to understand my work and learning about Smart Media, low light not being able to do faster because I got busy with other things. Some thing I can work on spending less time on the task and working faster.

After that we completed the task, we posted it on our blog. I enjoyed this task very much, and I hope to do more like this soon. Hope you enjoyed. Please leave a comment; thank you for visiting my blog.

Discussion & reflection


Task description: This week during Reading, we are learning to identify a character’s point of view, and monitor ourselves to read a novel. We are also learning to explain a point of view of a character a justify why I think this and keep up with my group. If I fall behind I catch up. After that I completed the task, and I posted it on our blog. I enjoyed this task very much, and I hope to do more like this soon. Hope you enjoyed.

Immersion assembly

Our school had an immersion assembly today, for the first day of term 3. I was super excited so I quickly decided to go to class. From class we walked to the hall in boy – girl lines, or as the teachers say BG lines. Then Mr Burt talked about lots of things, and welcomed us all back to school. After that the interesting stuff started!

Mr Burt also informed us about our theme. Our theme was ‘Fit for purpose’, so Mr Burt explained it to us. The topic for this term is fit for purpose. Which obviously has something to do with healthy eating. As usual we had our immersion assembly. We got to see all the teams performances and movies and got a look at what they were learning about.

Honestly my favourite one out of the teams was team 5. Each of the teachers had a role to play from a story they played out. Mrs Stone was a pregnant teacher, Mrs Ilaoa, Whaea Saff and Mr Moran were students and Mr Wiseman was the story teller.

My favourite out of teacher roles was Mrs Stone because I love the way she acted and played her part. My favourite movie was the Team 5 one. Team 5 did an amazing act! It was funny watching Mr Moran laying on the floor sleeping. I hope you enjoyed reading about immersion assembly and my favourite movie/act!

I liked all the movies/acts. They were all interesting and had something different. But if I had to pick a movie/act it would be the act from team 5 as it had a lot of funny moments. I loved all the movies and I am excited for the term and am ready to do loads of learning. I hope you will enjoy my blog posts this term!

I’m very excited for this term and the things that Team 5 will learn because I generally enjoy healthy eating, but exercise not so much. I look forward to everything that I’ll be learning and doing this term, and I hope you are, too ;P

Anyway this term Team 5 will be learning about how eating smart and being active have similar effects on our health. Which are is it reduces the risk of chronic diseases, known as diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, and some cancers and associated disabilities. And it also prevents weight gain and/or promotes weight loss. <3
