term 2 reflection

In term 2 I enjoyed having visitors coming to talk to us about what they do for a living and how they became successful. The reason why I enjoyed the visitors coming was because we got free cool prizes and I won one of them, just only one. Another thing I enjoyed about term 2 this year was songwriting there is a group for the year 7’s called the songwriting group and I’m In It and I’m writing a song but It’s a pretty sad song. The reason why I enjoyed songwriting group was because I liked to sing I will usually sing everywhere and that was mainly what I did at home, sing.

This term I didn't enjoy learning fractions because I found it hard and because my least favourite subject at school is maths. Also I didn't enjoy learning word problems because I didn't understand it. It Is easier than fractions but maths is like what I said my least favourite subject so that's probably only the reason why I didn't like it.

Next term I'm going to look forward to inquiry because my great great great grandfather is Japanese and I want to talk about him. I'm looking forward to badminton because last year we had it and it was fun.

My fractions

WALT: Find fractions of a quantity

1. Matthew is a huge rugby league fan and has 28 NRL cards. One quarter of them are Melbourne Storm cards. How many of them are Melbourne Storm cards?

28 ÷ 4 = 7
1 x 7=7

There are seven Melbourne storm cards.

2. In Mark’s class there are 18 children. ⅓ of them are boys. How many boys are in Mark’s class?  

18 ÷ 3 = 6
6 x 1= 6

There are 6 boys in mark’s class

3. Luke has 32 first cousins. ¾ of them live in Auckland and the rest of them live in Wellington. How many of Luke’s cousins live in Auckland?

32  ÷ 4 = 8
8 x 3 =24

Luke has 24 cousins that live in Auckland.

News board week 9

Today is a humid weather. I can feel the wind blowing me as if I was dancing. I can hear the beautiful harmony of the birds singing in the trees. I can see some students fooling around like crazy monkeys.

My weekly reflection week 6 term 2

My highlights for this week are going to the singing and song group meeting because we got to write songs and I was happy because Mrs Carter liked my song. My second highlight for this week is meeting Clint and Teresa who came and talked about Nurses/Doctors and other medical people.

My lowlights this week was finding out that our class was not on time to class after morning tea/lunch time. Because it’s disappointing to Miss and it makes me feel bad. My other lowlight for this week is getting in trouble from Mrs Hogans because I ran inside the library too loud.

What I’m looking forward to next week is going to singing and songwriting group meeting because I want to find other lyrics for my song. Another event I’m looking forward is going to swimming for the first time.

Maths stratergy.

This week the maths strategy I have learned is:
using compensation to solve x problems

Here is an example of how to use it:
The equation is 8x9. First I’m going to do       
8x10 = 80 then take away not only one, but one from each group. So 80-8= is 72 so 8x9 =72.

The equation is 7x8. First I’m going to do
7 x 10 = 70 so 70 take away not only two but two from each group. So 70 takeaway 14 is 56 so 7x8 = 56.
