Weekly Reflection ~ Term 1 Week 4

This week has been a busy week at school.

When we went to technology. I have Mr Robinson as my teacher. We have been working on 3D drawing and printing . I am creating a container for my hair ties and my bobbie pins.  This week we had to create a drawing or doc and add ideas for what we want in our Christmas cracker. I added ideas to my drawing.









This week for reading we have been doing activity's for the water tower. I had to chose a word and create a drawing on it. Also I had to chose how it was used in the book and to show my understanding off it. I like what I did and I think it was a cool idea from Mr Wood.












For Maths we have been creating graphs. Mr B have made us focus on line graph and the 10 day weather forecast in Greymouth. I chose to create a drawing and made the title fancy and did it well. We printed them off and placed them on the wall.

Weekly Reflection ~ (Term 1, Week 2 )

This term so far has been a great term. This year I am in T1 with Mr Wood. I think he is a great teacher. This week we have been focusing on maths.

This week I we had to make a graph to ask the class. I chose the question do you chew or suck on your chocolate. I made a google form and sent it to the class. Then I got the answers and created a pie graph. I liked doing this. My Next Step Learning would be how to create your own pie graph on paper because  this time I used an online site. Here is my pie chart.







We also had a challenge Mr Wood set us. We had to get are to rocket to get to the aliens and kill the before they get to earth. We could only use the number 1 time. I found it hard but in the end I completed it. I am proud of myself for not giving  up even when it was hard.











I have also been working on fractions. I can do fractions but in the test we did I found out I need to work on how to add and subtract with different denominates. I work on some maths buddy tasks and got Mr Wood to help me as well. I think it was hard at first but then I got the hang of it. 









For some fun maths to start the term we had to do our names in block letters and work out the area and perimeter of our names. I worked out for the area to break it into squares. Then Mr Wood said the squares were 7mm so I had to take .3 of. I had to use percentages and division to help me work out the answer. I like my art and I think it is cool.
