Team building recount

The day arrived, when the yr 8’s left to go camp, and the year 7’s stayed at school. The year 8’s left and all the year 7’s were jumping with joy. The  year 7’s got to do team building! What is team building? Well it is 3 days of absolute fun! It pretty much is working together as a team and trying to get to know other people better. We had 6 groups and a score board. I was in the Blue Dogs (the blue team). There were a variety of activities but I am going to talk about 1 thing, how we failed at SLIME!

It was our first day doing team building and we had to do our rotations. It was our first thing to do. What was it? We were making SLIME!  Slimy, gooey, messy, those are all the words that explained what we were doing, and making. Slimy, gooey stuff that spilled everywhere, It was sticky, it was runny and it was gross!  We spilled it everywhere, not just on the table but also on the floor!

Some of us made slime and some of us didn’t, but it was because of the glue. We followed all of the instructions. But we still failed. We wondered why? But that's when we realized that the glue  that we used was the wrong one. So we wasted most of the ingredients to try and help, but the more we put in ingredients the more of a clean up we had to do later. everything was on the floor My group had to stay and clean up. That was my least favourite thing about the whole 3 days. But it was actually fun.

Overall I would say that I had a fun time. It was also kind of funny how much mess 1 group can make in 30 mins. Everything spilled on the ground and mostly everywhere but we all had fun and all worked as a team and cleaned up the mess that we made. So from my perspective I think that it was fun,it was a good way to spend time with our friends and I would definitely do it again!

Maths today!

Maths:


Fractions Finale

What is ½ the same as? 2/4

What is ⅓ the same as? 2/6

What is 2/4 the same as? 1/2

What is ⅙ the same as? 2/12


I want to add ½ with ¼. First I change ½ to  2/4  then I add the other quarter to make 3/4

⅓ + ⅙. ⅓ = 5/6 

¼ + ⅛.  ¼ = 9/8

How can I change ⅔ into sixths ( 4/6)?


How can I change ⅔ into twelfths ( 5/12)


⅓ + ¼ = 7/12

⅓ = 2/6  ¼ =2/8


⅓ + ⅕ = 8/15

⅓ = 2/6  ⅕ = 2/10

⅙ + ⅛ = 14/48

⅙ = 2/12   ⅛ =2/16



⅓ + 1/7 = 10/21

¼ + ⅕ =9/20

⅓ + ⅖ =8/15

1/10 + 1/100=110/1000

1/10 + 1/1000= 101/1000

Fia Fia term 1

Fia Fia? what is Fia Fia? well fia fia is a cultural festival that pt England school has every second year. fia fia is a great way to boost other peoples confidence. it is also a great way to represent your culture and your style of dancing. Theres a variety of groups to perform in, and you can choose which one you want to be in. you can chose 1-3 groups.

On Thursday last term, we held our annual fia fia. I was in the kapa haka group, and we performed first. we performed 4 items. on thursday it was also the last day of the term and it was a great way to end term 1 2018. everybodys performance was amazing but i couldn't stay for the whole entire thing, because it was raining.  but fortunately i could watch it from home on the live stream that they were streaming from the night. we held our fia fia on our school grounds, we put the stage on the field. overall I personally loved fia fia night because i got to see all the other groups perform.

3D clay shapes


yesterday room 4 made 3D shapes out of clay. the ingredients we used was clay, water, a wooden knife and a plastic ruler to get the faces smooth. Me and my partner (Amelia) made a 3D hexagon, we wanted to make a complex shape so we chose a hexagon. everybody else made a cube and a 3D circle. the reason why we were making the shapes were because our school is running out of maths equipment and we thought it would be fun to make some of the 3D shapes. Questions for the little kids: how many faces does this shape have? dow you know what shape this is? how many vertices and edges does this shape have? This hexagonal prism and it has 8 faces 18 edges and 12 vertices.
