Home Learning Challenge - Excellence post 7

Home learning challenge A6 Research a range of option for high school. Visit at least 3 different open nights. I visited villa maria, girls high, cashmere, riccarton and hillmortan. For Villa Maria and Christchurch Girls High I went to an open day and for Cashmere, Riccarton and Hillmortan I went to the open night. I enjoyed learning about all the different options for high school and the food at the end of the tours.

Kapahaka - Excellence post 6

On Friday I had kapakaka. It was only the girls that went to kapahaka because we were learning poi and the week before it was only the boys that went kapahaka to learn the haka. We first sang a couple of songs to warm up that they handed out the poi. We didn't have enough so matua got some practice poi out of his car. The year five and under stayed in the hall to learn the short poi actions and the year 6, 7 and 8's went into the foyer to learn the long poi actions. I showed the care value of excellence by trying my best. I showed leadership by not giving up when learning the long poi because I am not very good at it.

Leadership - Excellence post 5

On Wednesday I had student council. The Monday before it Josh and I had a meeting with Mrs Trotter about what we were going to talk about since we run it. We talked about what we can do for fundraisers, who we can fundraise for and about how the student council can promote anti bullying around the school. I showed the care value of respect by respecting everyone opinions and ideas. I showed leadership by chairing the student council.

Reason with linear proportions

WALT: Reason with linear proportions
I have been learning 3 WALTS
1.National Standard 1: Combine simple proportions to work out what parts the whole is made up in a unit of 10 like 3 yellow with 7 blue, 5 yellow with 5 blue, 4 yellow with 6 blue. Say what the fraction and percentage of each stack is for yellow and blue.
2.National Standard 2: - Combine proportions to work out what parts the whole is made up of using non-multiple of 10 like 8 yellow:5 blue:4 white with 11 yellow:11 blue:11 white (19:16:15 and 38%:32%:30%)
3. National Standard 3: - Order fractions with unlike denominators by finding a common denominator
My evidence: assessment task

My next step is: geometry test

Reading - Text Composition

In reading we have been learning to….
recognise the way words, sentences and paragraphs are put together (eg sentences that express cause and effect) and use this knowledge to understand complicated texts.

These documents show evidence of my learning during this unit:

My Next Step: Is to continue to apply this new knowledge of parts of texts, to help me make sense of increasingly complicated text types.

Kapahaka - Excellence post 3

On Friday I had kapahaka.  Once I got to the hall I took my shoes off and went and sat in my line. We sung ka waiata a couple of times then we sung some other songs to warm up. Then we sung aotearoa for the for time without seeing the lyrics. After that we learnt the lyrics to a new song. I was quite hard because usually we can see the lyrics while we sing but the projector wasn't working so we couldn't. I showed the value of community by getting to kapahaka on time. I showed leadership by not giving up when learning the new song.
