Tenths and Hundredths

WALT: recognize and understand tenths and hundredths.

This week my maths group Calculators and I have been learning about tenths and hundredths. In this task we also had to write the decimal, fraction and mixed number. With the matching one we had to draw a line from the number on the right to it's name on the left. 

Instructions on how to play my scratch game

How to play my scratch game:
1. To move your space craft use the arrow keys.
2.As there are enemies you need to get rid of them so to do that you use the space bar to shoot.
3. If you are hit/touched by the enemy then you restart.

Your score is always set to 0 so each time you hit an enemy then you get 1 point. If you are touched by them then your score is set to 0 again then you have to play to gain more points.

What I've read about space traveling

The challenges of making my scratch game

The challenges that I had for my scratch game was to shoot the bullet out of my space ship, getting the right co-ordinates right and making my enemies vanish when my bullets hits them. Those were my challenges. How I solved them: I solved my problem by watching a video of how to shoot bullets from our space ship. Click here to see the video. Well those were my challenges and out of al of them shooting them was the hardest. Also if you want to see my scratch game click HERE and see what my friends and I have done.

Talofa Bloggers

Today our class is focusing on our Key Competencies. Our aim was to stay on task and see how much progress we make for maths in one maths block. This should set the standard for how much work we complete each time we have numeracy.

Here is my maths work I have completed today.

What I found out about space

This is what I learnt about space and what and exo-brake is. Everything I have learnt about it is right above and to me it is quit interesting. The photos above show you the exo-brake being launched and how the make it. I hope this is interesting to you and I hope you like it.

3 days without the year 8's

For the past 2 days the year 8's have been off at camp and the year 7's, a couple of year 8's and I have been back at school doing some great activities like: making truffles, relays/races of stacking cups up and putting them pack down and so much more.

One the first day we all got in our team groups and they were Munchies, Churries and Fobalicious and then after that we had did our chant and I thought that Churries chant was the best. We had lovely teachers who ran different stations and they are Mrs Judd, Whaea Kelly and Mr Slade. They stations were paper work and posters, marshmallow buildings using past sticks.

The second day the munchies and I moved onto team building with Mrs Judd and Mose. What we had to do was to build that tallest tower or building using marshmallows and pasta. Sadly no one had got any points because people had gotten frustrated and wrecked their tower/building. After that was the cup challenge where we had to stack cups using an elastic rubber band and some strings. When that was finish the stacking cup challenge was last before we moved onto making truffles with Whaea Kelly. After lunch was great because we got to play soccer, tag and netball after lunch. Well it was just yesterday that we did that stuff.
