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.

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.

Group Padlet

W.A.L.T: Discuss and justify my response to a range of text.

This here is a padlet that my group and I put down our ideas/opinions about what we think if zoos are good for animals or not. We also have to find evidence in the text given to us.

My 9 sentence story

There was once a kind girl named Dezarae. Dezarae likes to walk to the shop. She buys a lot of lollies and she likes to chat with the shopkeeper and her name is Anahere.

After school Dezarae would invite Anahere over to play on her trampoline, but this time Anahere refused to play. She felt awful that she decided to make new friends, and so she did. As she walked home she saw Anahere and Anahere explained why she refused to play with her. “My family told me to make you jealous” explained Anahere. Anahere was a little happy about but Dezarae wasn’t happy at all. So Anahere and Dezrae never talked again or both Anahere and Dezarae would start to argue.

This is my 9 sentence story. This week room 1 literacy and I have been learning about simple, compound and complex sentences. Simple sentences are words that form a complete thought. Compound sentences are 2 or more sentences joined together by a coordinating conjunction. Complex sentences contain and independent clause and a dependent clause joined together by a subordinating conjunction.
Green is simple sentences
Blue is compound sentences
Red is complex sentences
