Juggling With Mandarins | Book Review

Juggling With Mandarins

I haven't read much of this book but I already know that it is very good.
This book was recommended by Mr Wood (my teacher).

This is about a boy who's father loves soccer and is at every match of his sons. Juggling with mandarins is a metaphoric for him juggling his life how it's going up and down. 
I haven't read enough of this book to write down all about it. All I can say is that I know that this book is very good and I look forward to reading more.

Ballast Reflection T2W8 2018


Ballast is an interesting puzzle game off Maths Pickle.

Blotch is a puzzle game which you have to pick numbers. These numbers all have to work in a specific way.  

So you see the image up the top there, that is one of the ballast puzzles I have completed. You need 5 numbers. The number 1 and 5 that you see well you times those. The other numbers that are 0, 2 and 3 well those numbers have to add up to the answer of what (for example) 5 x 1 = and that's 5. 0 + 2 + 3 = also 5.     

In these the five numbers were already picked out and only 2/3 of them were supposed to work so obviously the center one and the right side one.

Blotch Puzzle T2W7 2018

This week we have been learning about Blotch. Blotch is a puzzle designed for problem solving and a lot of incorrect input.

The way to work out these puzzles may seem to question a lot of people but after time it does start to make sense. 

Here is a slide show explaining how to work Blotch........

I hope you check out this fun puzzle game and I hope I explained it well enough.

Thank you for reading my blog post.

Athletics Reflection Grey Main And Grey District 2017 T4


For the last while through the term we have been doing Athletics. I have been through four stages of the athletics but I am going to write about the first two. For the Athletics it was girls verse girls and boys verse boys and there were age groups too. Here are the 2/4 stages of the Athletics I went through:

Grey Main Athletics 

For Grey Main Athletics it was just Grey Main. No other people from other schools joined. I was in the 10 year old girls group with quite a few other girls. I wasn't their for long because I had something on but I did stay for short distance running and high jump. 

For the short distance running (i think it was 80 meters) we all lined up in our rows and when the teacher set of the gun we started running. In the end I think i got either fourth or third.

 For High Jump we lined up on either side of the jump and when the person called out a name we jumped. We had to do scissor jump for it and if we did another type it wouldn't count. I think i got either third or second place overall in that.  

Grey District

For Grey District I got in for High jump and Short distance running. For the Grey District one it was all the school kids from Greymouth that joined. 

We did the short distance running and someone jumped lines in my race so that confused me so I practically lost the race. 

For High Jump I did quite well and ended up getting first place. I'm not sure quite how high I jumped but I do know it was high up.
