Quick Writing

 Today we were focusing around narratives writing because next term in week 3 we will be writing about narratives. We used the narrative criteria. The 1st sentence is about who the main character is. Then the 2nd is about where he/she lives. The 3rd is about sentence describes the characters talent. The 4th sentence is about the problem. The 5th  sentence is about how the character felt and then the last sentence is about how the problem is solved. I worked collaboratively with charlize and Sakae. I think we will do really well and good in our writing assessments. 


Today for maths as a class we played Quizizz. We did a basic facts challenge. We had to answer 20 questions with multiple choices. We were competing between our class to see who gets all the questions right and who is the fastest. I really enjoyed playing this game and it really helps me with my basic facts.

Think Board

Mrs. Anderson's maths group has been learning about plusing decimals. This is a think board of my learning on how to solve the question 4.2 + 3.6. I have shown what strategy I used. I used a diagram to show my thinking, A word story, And other similar questions to the number problem.

Last term me and Mishaan taught a group of juniors how to play shark attack. The juniors were very easy to teach they stopped and listened to us they did everything that we said. Me and Mishaan joined in with the juniors and we all had a great day.

Read Theory

Every week LS2 does read theory. Read theory is a reading site that helps you whith your reading. You have to read the text then answer the questions. Today on my first story I got 100% that means I got all the questions right. I like doing read theory because it helps me with my reading and it also helps me achieve my goals.

LS2 have been using sketch notes so that we can record our learning in our ways using pictures, words or even numbers. Sketch notes helps us make a learning story in our own words. Sketch notes also help us to make connection. One interesting fact that I learnt about sketch notes is that it doesn't have to be perfect because only I need to understand it. Our first attempt at sketch notes was about question because we already knew about the topic. Our second topic was athletes  

Cross Country Training

For the past few weeks we have been doing cross country training. LS1 and LS2 have been working hard to get more fit for the semi finals. Who ever comes 1st, 2nd, or 3rd you go to the inter schools final. For the training we have to run from the court down the path around by the hill and through LS2 and the library then to the court.This week we had to do 5 laps. We had to pace ourselves so we can get fit for the semi finals.
