### Fractions

LI: Fractions decimals and percentages

LI: To understand corresponding fraction, decimals and percentages.

LI: To understand mixed number, improper and equivalent fractions.

This week for maths we had to see how fractions, decimals and percentages link up. We had to do that by using a dlo. We also had to understand mixed number, improper and equivalent fractions alos by using a dlo. The difference between Mixed fraction, improper fraction and mixed number fraction is, Proper fraction is when the numerator is lower than the denominator for example, 4/9 the numerator is lower than the denominator. Improper is when the numerator is higher than the denominator, like 14/4. Mixed number is when the improper fraction like 14/4 it can be called a different way you will need to split it up into 3 wholes 2/4 because there will be 3 wholes and 2/4 left so the answer is 2/4. Fractions have a numerator and a denominator. The numerator is the number of how much it takes up and the denominator is the number of how much it is taking up in. For example ⅔ , the numerator is the top number and the denominator is the bottom number. The numerator is taking 2 away from the 3 so that is ⅔ . Fractions, Decimals, and percentages all link up by the place value ones, tenths and hundredths.

We finished 1 compulsory task whitch was the Poem/Prose.

### Lattice and Japanese methods

LI: To learn new strategies for maths equation. This week for maths we had to learn how to use the Lattice and Japanese method. This is how you use them. This is the lattice method in solving maths equations. You have to make a square box with 9 squares in it like this. Then you have to put the multiply symbol on the top right box. Then under it is 2 more boxes. For example my equation is 43 x 33, I put my 33 under the multiply symbol boxes, I put my 3 that is ten right under the multiply symbol box, then I put my 3 that is a one under the tens box. Then I put my 4 and 3 which is the 43 on the left side of the multiply symbol. The 4 goes on the top left then the 3 goes right next to the multiply symbol. Then you add the lines going right across each box diagonally except the boxes with the maths problems in them. Then you multiply 3 to 3 which equals 9, if there is no ten then you add a zero on top and you keep repeating if there is no ten with the answer. After you did 3 x 3 you move on to the 4 x 3 and 4 x 3. Since it is 12 it has a ten you put the 1 on top instead of the zero and put the one underneath like this. Then you add it up, you have to add the numbers that are in the diagonal direction start off with the 9 all the way at the end then move to the 2 + 9 + 0 equals 11 so you move the 10 out of the 11 to the left so it is one. Then 1 + 2 + 0 and also plus the one from the right side that was coming to the left equals 4 then the final number 1 right on top, they all are 1419 that is the answer.This is how you use the japanese method, for example 28 x 23, you make 2 lines diagonally and 8 lines diagonally across from the 2 lines then for the 23 you put 2 lines going through the 2 and 8 lines and 3 lines on top. Then you circle the sides and count how many like edges there are. Then if the number is over 10 then you take away the first number and move it to the left to add to what it has for example, on one of the sides there was 24 dots that I made and I moved the 2 to the left to add to the middle circles that were 22 so I did the same moved the first number to the left to add to what was there , and the 2 that I moved from the first circle is added to the other 2 in the middle making 4. Now the 2 from the 22 is moved to the left which had 4 edges and I added it making 6 and the answer was 644

### Kiwi Can

Today for kiwi Can we learnt a new topic accountability. Accountability is Being honest and being responsible. First we played Copy me for our energiser. we played it differently we used cards to play if our group gets a card that says 3 we have to do 15 secs of fornite dances. The first group with the most cards win. After that we were talking about what do we think accountability means. Then we played another game called buddy move we had to get a partner and one partner is in front and the other at the back we all had to do it in the circle. We numbered ourselves from 1 and 2. 1 stands in the inside of the circle and 2 stands out side. When Mr Matt or miss lily says apple your partner on the outside has to crawl under the persons in the insides leg. If they say orange the person standing on the outside had to speed walk around the circle and the last person that just gets to their partner after speed walking is out. We played elimination. Banana is swapping so the person on the out side of the circle goes in side and the perosn in the inside of the circle is outside. Watermelon is when the person on the outside of the circle has to piggy bank of the person on the insides back. After that we played a quick game of GKQ master. It started off with Vayan and ended with me.GKQ master is when we have to vs other people with questions by walking around the circle. After that we went to class.

### Kiwi Sport Rippa Rugby

Today for Kiwi Sport we first started with rippa rush, during rippa rush we had to use the Skills Hamish taught us on our last session of Kiwi Sport, which was about side stepping. After that Hamish was talking to us about what we need to work on.Hamish numbered us in numbers no.1, no.2, no.3. Then we played a game sort of like Rippa rush but we had to get into 3 group one group was resting and the other 2 playing. One group was running and another group was defending. The running group had to run to the other siude of the court without getting ripped. If multipled people get over an only a few got ripped then the team gets one point. The defending team had to try defend the other team to make them not go the other side so they had to make a plan. They had to try make a wall so the running team can find it hard to get to the other side.After that we played an actual rippa game. We had to use the wall skills so it is hard for the other team to score. We had to tap and pass. We stayed in our 3 groups when we were playing.

### Kiwi Sport - Rippa Rugby

Today for kiwisport we first had to play any direction, we all put our belts on and our rips.If you get ripped you have to sides pass or backwards pass but if you have two rips you can forwards pass. After that we had to practise side stepping, their were 3 groups and 1 person form each group had to be stuck in the mud, the people that isn't stuck in the mud had to side step the perosn and they had to try rip the rippas the person stepping. After that we had to do hit and spin, it was ike side stepping but we had to pretend that we are going one direction but we step and spin the other way. You have to try not get ripped, each person had a trun being stuck in the mud. After that we played another game of any direction, but we had to try use those stepping skills. After that we had toget into two and Hamish will number us, after that we had to line up and when we do when hamish says our number we had to run behind the line and get the or if our tean doesnt get the ball then we have to try rip the other teams rip with the ball but the person with the ball had to try side step and score.

### Advantages in Retail Shopping

This week for cybersmart we were learning about the advanteges of retail shopping. Advantage means like a good point. We had to work in groups to find the advantages in shopping in retail. We had to use a padlet to write it all down here is some that was written: You can see if the quality is good or not./if the thing says what it is not then you can get your money

back /If you are looking at one thing that you don't like you can go and look at something else .

You can get somehing instead of the one./You can see if the food is expired or overdue. /You can ask the shop keeper if you could maybe get a discount on the product you want to buy. / Customers might not know if the product is worth the money. That was some of the things that we wrote down.

### Matariki Maori

Today for maori we were talking about Matariki. We watched different videos about matariki, They were A matariki Story, Matariki, and the matariki story from Toni Rolleston - Cummings, The story of matariki. Those were the video we watched. We had to do some reasearch about matariki. Then We watched a video called Maori Poi Dance - Melville Intermediate School, Whaia Ode made us watch it so she could teach the boys how to use the sticks. When we watched the videos about maatariki we larnt something. This is one of the stories. Long ago their was nothing but darkness, Ranginui the god of the sky and Papatuanuku Mother earth had children all was good til they were growing up, they wanted more space and more room that one day one of their sons were pushing them apart it was Tane Mahuta, the parent woke up but they were separated already. Ranginui the god of the sky was full of sadness so he cried making rain, but someone was sad too it was their son the god of the wind Tawhiri he felt sad for his parents, so he cried tears of lightning, he got his tears and threw it up to the heavens and they became stars and those starrs were called the stars of matariki.

### Kiwi Can

Today for kiwi Can our enigiser was when we all had to circle up one hand behind and we have one hand to try hit the ball from comming in between our legs. We played a couplpe of rounds of this. The last 5 or 6 people that were still standing was the winners. After that we talked about how we could be good role models and why should we be good role models. We should be good role models so we can inspire young kids to copy us but if we make bad choices they might copy us and think that they are doing something good. After that we had our activity, it was called the silent one. We had got into 4 groups. Miss lily would write down things on the white board for us to do when we role the dice and it lands on the number then we have to do whats written down like if it lands on 4 our group has to do a 5 second fornite dance. We all had to do this but we had to be quiet if we talk then our team is desqualified.

### Elective tasks - Inquiry

Today is the last day of Nutrition and the Digestive System. We had to blog everything we completed. I completed the Double Sequence Chart, Venn Diagram, Fishbone and Song Lyrics.

### Venus fly trap trapping mechanism - Explanation

LI: To write detailed paragraphs. This week for writing we had to learn how to do detailed paragraphs. We learnt that paragraphs first start off with a statement then a description. We had to do a remake of Mr wong's venus fly trap explanation but with detailed paragraphs. We had to do over 3 sentences for each sentence. We had to make our sentences bigger and paragraphs longer. I had got this information about venus fly traps from reading sites about Venus fly traps that were suitable for kids.

### Site review

LI: To Summarise a text using keywords. This week for reading we had to read this site which talked about the human digestive system. We had to make a review about what we think about the site. This is what I said - "So I think this is a really good site, you could find out more about the human digestive system and the organs included. People who read this site and is on a high level might get a pretty clear definition about the digestive system.

I have been using this site for more information about the digestive system and it is really helping me. This site is really good it just doesn’t talk about the main parts of the human digestive system it also talks about the other parts like your Liver, Pancreas, Salivary Glands, and rectum. When you read this it gives you a lot of information but this site is not for all levels of reading. Even though you already know the digestive system you might learn a lot more. For example the appendix, doctors used to think that the appendix was just one small piece but actually the appendix stores bacteria, not just any bacteria good bacteria, I have got this fact from the site. This site also gives fun facts about the organs too like how the small intestine has about 5 million tiny villi."

### Volume and Capacity

https://flipgrid.com/5e6881 - Flip Grid Video

LI: To Explain the difference between Volume and Capacity. This week for maths we had to make a google draw about volum and capacity. We had to pick out two square type looking objects and measure the capacity. Capacity is the Height, Width, and Depth. When we measured it we had to mulitply them up to see how many ㎤ (cm square). Then we had to do the volume. Volume is how much something takes up. We had to do water. We had measuring cups to see how many ml of water could fit in the containers we chose. Before that we had to estimate how many ml we think it is and when we measured it we have to see if our estimation was close or not. We had to make a flip grid video about us explaining our understanding of volume and capacity.
