Maths Sample.

WALT: Use our five times tables to solve mainly six, seven and eight times tables.
In maths we are learning to solve tricky times table questions like 17x6, using our simple 5 times tables. For example, if the question was 6x16 you would go, 5x16+1x16=96. So the answer is ninety -six.
We had to do a difficult maths sample to show we know how to use this strategy. Here is a photo of mine.

The success criteria is to be able to understand and use this strategy without any trouble.
I think I have achieved this because I understand the strategy and can use it easily if I need to. Peer feed back: I think you have worked hard and understand what you are doing and how to work it out. Grace's comment:)

Hot and cold!

We have writers notebooks. A writers notebook is a place were you store all your ideas, so later on you can go back, and make storys out of them. In our writers notebooks we had to make a page about hot and cold things. Here is a picture of mine.

Spelling prioritie.

I had to make a spelling pyramid out of the first five of my spelling words. A spelling pyramid is when you chose a word and you write the first letter at the top of the page. Then you write the first two letters bellow the first letter. You repeat this over again, each time adding on a letter until you get to the   whole word. Here is a photo of mine.

Learning partner pic collage.

We had to make a learning partner pic collage about what a learning partner is for. My learning partner is Grace S. Here is ours.

Math graph.

We are doing timetables. We are practising our basic facts by doing tests. The first level I passed easily and then the same for the second then I didn't get them all right so I had to stay on the same level. The next time I got them all right so I could finally go onto the next level. Here is a picture of a graph I use too record my scores.

Solid, liquid and gas

In science we are learning about solid, liquid and gas. We were given a work sheet to do. I got an amazing twenty-three out of twenty-three. Here is a picture of our difficult work sheet.

Spelling test!

The whole poutama did a spelling test in their whanu classes. There were two pages and three hundredwords that you need to know to be able to write and read. I got twelve wrong. Here are some photos of my spelling test.

I think I did well because I got more right than I thought I would. I could improve on remembering easy words because I didn't remember some words.
