Numeracy Reflection T2W3 2017

Numeracy Reflection
WALT: Use a variety of strategies (compensation/ partitioning/ adjusting)

Maths Check ups: This week there has been a lot of MATHS. Not quite DLO (digital learning object) work but a bit like tests except not on paper these were called maths check ups. For the maths check ups there was, Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication, Division, Addition and Subtraction, Plus two more for division. These were all easy at the start but then got harder and harder Which made it more challenging. In my opinion the test wasn't the worst, it was a little bit hard but other wise than that it was ok. Here are some pictures of my work.

Literacy Reflection T2W3 2017

Literacy Reflection 
WALT: With increasing confidence, logically sequences explanations or arguments.
Word Work: This week for word work I have done the usual meanings, sentences and origins, except I used a slide show. For the fun activity I did backwards words, for this activity you write the word then you write backwards and it comes out with very random results which is one of the reasons why I liked doing this activity. Here is my work:

Advertisement: This week we completed some advertisement posters. For this we had to pick a book then we had to write about parts of the book like a snappy sentence then the last thing was to make a poster. I thought making this poster was a lot of fun because it's quite creative. Here are the results of my work:

Welcome Back

Welcome back to my blog. It's term 2 now after a long two weeks of holiday. This first week has been great lots of things have happened like: Miss Panther has gone and there is a new teacher called Miss Reissman. 

At assembly on Friday for good behavior I got a chocolate bar. The teacher of each class got one to give to a student. The Principal had a friend that gave her boxes of lamington chocolate and apple crumble chocolate because Cadbury is closing in New Zealand, I got the lamington chocolate.

Top Team Bonus Reflection T1W10 2017

Top Team

This week the whole school did Top Team Games. Your school might have done this and if you have you would know. Top Team is groups of people that go to different schools and set up fun activities for the kids to do. For an example there was a water game which we had to fill up a bucket of water and balance it on this stick thing and we had to try to get to the other end.

My Favorite part

My favorite activity for top team would have to be this game that was like a tunnel thing it was very hard to control but it was very fun. While we were doing this activity we kept falling over and it was quite funny. Here is a picture of some people doing it.

My Least favorite part
Despite that all of the activities were good there is always one that you would probably like the least. So my least favorite activity was the activity where we were in this sack with at least four other people, and for me it felt very crowded. I didn't hate this activity it just wasn't my favorite.
