Comets - Find, Draw, Animate, Act


L.I To summaries
L.I To find and make examples of words

This week for our Reading session we had to skim and skan through a text Called Comet.  After reading the text we had to go in groups of 3-4 and share out words that were were unsure of and give a short definition of what the word means. Our Must Do Task was to use Find, Draw, Animate, and Act (This process that our teach Mr Wong made) for the words we were struggling on. We were given one word each and we had to either find a image of the word , Draw the word, Animate the word or Act the word. For example my word I was given was Orbit. I Act it. How I act was I had one person as the Sun and had 5 people (includes me) around the son being the orbit. I learnt that a Orbit is a Curve Path that an Object in space moves around. In

Column Method


L.I To add and subtract numbers using the column method.
L.I To check our answers using other methods.

Today for maths our Must Do Task was to go on Transum and play Basic Subtraction 4 (2 digit numbers) and 5 (3 digit numbers). After that we had to screenshots of both games and get one equation from each game and had to solve it by using the column method and then after using other methods to solve the equation out. I learnt that using the column method in maths is the method where numbers are carried and borrowed. I was a bit struggling on playing the Basic Subtraction 5 game but I stall managed to get it finish. I think for next time I should challenge myself by timing how fast I use the Column Method just to check how good I am at using the Column Method.

After that in our groups we had to write down 2 examples of a Noun , Verb , Adjective and Adverb. Soon we wrote a Poetry together in our groups using the Noun , Verb , Adjective and Adverb words we wrote down. Our writing Must Do Task was to write a Poetry by our selves using the same process we used in our groups. I learnt that a adjective is a word that describes a noun or pronoun.

Olympic - Trainning


Today for Inquiry we got moved to different groups. I got moved to Mr Orgivelles group which is Training. Our first task was to define What Physical Activity is. So we had to find images of Physical activities we know, so it could build us a picture/definition of what being active or physical activity means. We had to attribute the images we put into our slides as well so we know if we have permission to use the person who took the pictures. We also had to introduce the 3 areas of training or Physical Activity so within the same slide we had to create a slide for Strength , Endurance and Agility. We had to attribute as many images under the three areas. We were also needed to write down a definition of what Physical Activity is and list as many Olympic Sports Under the three areas/titles. I learnt that Physical Activity is any body movement that works your muscles and requires more energy than resting. Examples of Physical Activity: Walking , running ,  dancing , swimming , yoga.  I also learnt what the three areas/titles mean. So Endurance means the ability to keep doing something difficult , unpleasant , or painful for a long time. Agility means the ability to move about quickly and easily and Strength means the ability to do things that need a lot of physical or mental effort. I was struggling on attributing the images even do I have done it a lots of times. I think for next time I should list more Olympic Sports than possible under the three areas/titles because I think it is not enough.

After that we had to make a price for the things we wanted to buy. Soon we had to equal both of our prices and had to solve it by using the column method. So today for maths Mr Orgivelles groups, had to go on Transum and go on basic addition 4 (2 digit numbers) and basic addition 5 (3 did numbers). After that we had to take a screenshot of both games and solve at least one equation from each game using the Column Method.

First you have to roll the dice and for example if you get a nine you have to put it in one of the Ones, Tens and hundreds column boxes. You don't put it in any boxes, you have to think where you put it because the number has to go smallest to biggest like, 201, 403, 506, 578, 993. Our learning was to apply our Place Value Knowledge.

L.I: To find related words
Today for Reading, Ruapehu group read a text called How To Make a Non-Polluting Car. After reading the text we had to right down all the words we were struggling on a piece of paper and find out the Definition/Meaning. I learnt that Prohibited means Not Allowed for example when you go to the swimming you are Prohibited from Diving or Bombing in the Swimming Pool and also learnt words that relate to Prohibited like Banned, Forbidden or Proscribed. I was really struggling on learning what the words means. I think for next time I should write the Definition/Meaning on each word just in case someone needs more information to really get  what the words mean.
