Math Skillz Finding A Percentage Of A Number

This is my slideshow of how to find a percentage of a number with the math skillz group.
First our teacher showed us the rules and how to do it quickly and then she gave us some questions to answer in this slideshow where we also need to explain how it works. :3

Grid Value Portrait

WAL about value in art ➡️ how light or dark something is.
Process: learning about Chuck Close and the art that he did ➡️ Taking a line for a walk (making a scribble on our page and filling the spaces up) to help us learn more about value in darkness➡️ measuring a grid up on our piece of paper to enlarge➡️ drawing our patterns inside the grid squares to create our self portrait.
Trickiest part: was trying to remember to fill the squares with different patterns and not just bits.
Favourite part: Scribbling to learn. 😸

Speech Planner

WAL how to create a plan for a speech using success criteria. This is my speech template that I have created to help set up my speech. i have added all the persuasive techniques and strategies to get my audience listening to my point of view. I will try to use all these techniques in my speech if possible. I found this moderately difficult because it took my a while to understand what I had to do, but once i figured it out it was easy. :D

Term 2 Week 2

This week we have been learning about the solar system and I was the least informed person on this topic.
We had a solar system scavenger hunt where you'd have a pencil and a piece of paper and on the paper were questions. You had to run around the field looking for the answers for the question and write it down.
Our team got 14 out of 18 within about 10 minutes or so and we looked for the answers for 14 - 18 the rest of the time. As it turned out our teacher, who hid the answers, forgot to put those out... 

Today we had our first netball A team game, I kind of felt sorry for them because they were their school's B team. We then beat them and everyone from our school cheered for our team. I cheered for the visiting team.
The ending score I think was 12 / 2. I was WA (Wing Attack) who's job is to get the ball forward and help the shooters, GA and GS, to get in a better position to score. I think I did fairly well but it was pretty sad because we beat them so easily and our team was the only team who knew they were B team.

Identifying bias - The Whale Rider

This is a chapter from a book our class is reading, The Whale Rider. In this, we had to identify when the character, Koro is being bias. I found this a bit tricky because I don't quite know what the word, bias means. My next step will be to investigate the topic a but first.

Peer Mediation Video

This is a video that showcases that I can solve a problem. We have been learning how to solve a problem for a while and in this video we have to use all the skills we learnt.

Whale Rider Venn Diagram

This is my whale rider venn diagram. A venn diagram lets you compare two or more people, Some people know it as a double bubble map but in my one I was comparing three people. I was comparing two people from the book our class is reading and me, The book is called The Whale Rider. I found this activity quite easy because I got an example before I had to do mine.

Term 1 Week 5

Over the last few weeks at school me and some peoples have been working on cryptarithms. Cryptarithms are a math problem..- cryptic --..codey thing. So the math problem was writing in letters. We found them fun because they were challenging and it was addicting. You need to find a pattern with the letter and then find out the numbers using that pattern.

We also started some art where you need to grid up a piece of paper and then in each square do a pattern with the darkness depending on the photo your copying. You could do lines close together to make the square look dark or lines further apart to make the square look lighter I think it will look really "cool" when we're done.

We have been reading a book called the whale rider, it is about the legend of paikea and the present we had to do a venn diagram on ourselves and the first two characters we were introduced to, Nanny Flowers and Koro Apriana. To go along with that story we also did a retelling of paikea using summarising. The legend of paikea is about a man with 70 children who he thinks will do great, but he has another son who has been rejected from his father and was jealous of his brothers hence he sabotaged the canoe all his brothers were going on. All of his brothers drowned except for one, KAHUTIA-TE-RANGI who called upon a whale, their souls became one, Kahu became Paikea like the whale, they killed Ruatapu (the jealous brother) and swam to land.

Animals in Room 20

I was learning to display an organised digital graph based on room 20's opinions. 
I found this easy and fun because we used laptops and learnt more (fingies) we could do with them.
I chose the topic "Animals in Room 20" We had to have a main/header question and then a few more relating to that question. Most people's favourite animals are the feline family and the mammal family.

First Day of School

This is my description of the first day of school in my perspective.
I found this quite hard because I could hardly remember a thing about that day. (it was about 1 and a half weeks later) My next step will be to use more adjectives and descriptive words.
