Start of Summer holidays

The summer holidays have began and me and my family had decided to go somewhere as usual. We were packing our stuff for the trip like water bottles, food, and things that weren't necessary. Once everything was packed we left. We were on our way fine until the car broke down when we went up a steep hill just about to enter the country side. That's when my dad checked the car and found out the water pump was broken a little. We added as much water as possible and left. Once we left we well we couldn't make it because the water pump would brake down soon enough so we turned back around and stopped at botanic gardens just when the car broke down and we had a picnic there until the sun set down. Then we added as much water as possible again and left and we just made it in time home. And the car is totally broken, we had it since we came to New Zealand in 2002. RIP rest in peace 2002-2015.


This is how it looks like but except it's a grey colour.

Short holiday recount

Year 6s have gone on camp to kawau island for 4 days and 3 nights. Lucky for me I get to stay home with my parents and my big sister. I’m glad I at least have my big sister with me so we can have fun since it’s the holiday’s for her.


I woke up in the morning as usual walking through the hallway into the living room. But something wasn't right. It was Tuesday and I was supposed to meet my dad and he would tell me to go wash my face as usual. That's when I remembered it was camp and I had decided to stay home with my sister and my parents not as usual.


Well I decided to stay home for a reason because since the year 6s when to camp and they were having fun lots of fun I decided to have fun by myself at home with my sister. But then my sister had to go to tuition so then I ended up staying home on my Chromebook playing sky chase and that was kind of boring. But her tuition started at 4:00 o’clock so I gotted to spend some time with her.


So then I ended up staying home by myself for 4 days but at least I had my parents with me and I did watch a few movies and well played a game and then I helped my dad cook the pizza and then put it in the oven and while I was waiting I went back on my Chromebook and played a game and then helped him cut the pizza.

Well that was my story and I guess it was fun staying at home watching movies and playing games and spending time with my parent’s. And my favourite part about staying home was when I helped my dad with cooking the pizza.


The year 6s are on camp at kawau island for 4 days and 3 nights. I was glad because I could spend sometime with my sister. But then I ended up staying home what to do it's a CATASTROPHE!!!!!

Maths Problem Solving: Week 3 Term 4

WALT: Find a fraction of a number

Here is another Maths Problem Solving presentation that I made. This
Presentation is about fractions again but except we had to simplify for example
42 - 21 = 21 21 over 42. Simplify: 21 divide by 7 = 3  42 divide by 7 = 6
So: 3 over 6  3 divide by 3 = 1 6 divide by 3 = 2 so the answer is 1/2.

Maths Problem Solving: Week 2 Term 4

WALT: Find a fraction of a number

This Week for our maths problem solving presentation we did fractions again. Fraction's
is sort of like splitting but your not. Here is an example 5/6 of 18 =? Here is
how I got the answer 18 divide by 6 = 3 x 5 = 15 so your answer is 15.

Maths Problem Solving Week 1: Term 4

WALT: Find a fraction of a number

Today in this presentation I learnt about fractions. Fractions is like splitting
numbers into half but it's more different. For example 1/2 of 50 it actually
easy because the answer is 25 because what is half of 50? 25. Another different
example is 2/4 of 20? This is much more different then 1/2 of 50. Here is how I
solved 2/4 of 20. 20 divide by 4 = 5 x 2 = 10 so 10 is your anwser.

Adaptation

The action or process of adapting or being adapted


Adaptation means like when you adapt something for example you give birth or maybe there is a child without parents and you adapt them it's sort of like giving birth but it's just that your not giving birth your adapting. Another example is adaptation but adaptation of an animal. Animals adaptation is when surviving in it's environment. A polar bear is one of the best at surviving because in the winter when it's snowing it's hard to see them because there so white in other word's camouflage.

Fear factor

Just today this morning we did something crazy and man believe me it was crazy but then sooner on it is was just another one off our teacher’s tricks.


This morning I came into room 6 literacy as usual. But nothing was normal we did something weird today we had our own fear factor. But then I remembered last time when I did this challenge the teacher brang out lollies instead of gross and revolting creatures and food. Then Mr Goodwin told us when he picked four students that you will be drinking and eating swamp water and frog eggs I was disgusted by hearing that.

Just then he went to go get the swamp water and frog eggs but once he brang it out everybody started yelling out EWWWWWWW!!!!!!! And then they started saying it’s tuna it’s tuna but it didn't look like tuna to me then that's when it hit me. I knew it was a trick by looking at it and once he brang it I was right. He didn’t tell the four contestants that what it was he just gave it to them and once he said go they all started eating well only two ate slowly. And at the end one of the boys won the competition.

Once I heard that we were writing about fear factor I knew that he was going to get us fake food but then he said that you are eating swamp water and frog eggs for this competition. Then he said that it was real then I thought he was telling us the truth but once he brang it out I found out that it was fake.   

San Diego zoo introduction

This morning we took a very very unusual tour in our very own classroom. We went on a heck of a tour visiting new creatures that we didn't even knew and we found out facts about them like what do they eat what are they good at and how much off them are left in this world. Would it be better taking a tour in your classroom or in the outside world?     









Today we wrote about taking a tour but in our own classroom we took a tour online. And if you read the introduction it doesn't say that we took a tour in our own classroom online. Online we visited a place with creatures we didn't even know well some off them we did know about anyway we learnt facts about them and what they eat it was a great experience.

Blood moon

Just A few days ago me and my family except for my sister she was at her tuition went somewhere. We first had to pick my sister off course because she finished early that day. Her tuition usually finishes at 5 pm but instead she finished at 12:00 am. After we picked her up we went to a beach and stayed there for quiet a while like maybe 1 hour. After that we just went to more places to find a place to have a picnic. Just when we found the place we had our picnic and played a few games and spend time talking and after that we left to the beach we came in the first place. We stayed there until 11 O'clock that's when we saw the blood moon appear but it looked a little yellow strange.
This is what a total eclipse looks like.  This is the total eclipse of October 27, 2004 via Fred Espenak of NASA, otherwise known as Mr. Eclipse.  Visit Fred's page here.
Sorry I couldn't find the 2015 blood moon and as you can see on the bottom left corner it says 2004.

Today I have just found an american one cent also known as a penny. This is how it began my big sister hajira was going to her tuition for 9 days. We paid $400 dollars for her tuition and this morning I came with my dad to drop her off at west lake girls high school. While we dropped her off we drove back home and on the way we stopped at Michael Joseph savage Memorial park. We used to visit there many time's when I was a child. Anyway In the water I was looking for anything interesting and then I came upon a small penny. I had just told my dad I think I found 10 cents of new Zealand but once I got it out all I found in my hand was a american one cent. It also said E Pluribus Unum Out of many, one ( the motto of the US )

Anyway we had to wait and then once ever single boy had there Drinks and lollies and all that stuff we played a movie.

Egg friend race

WALT: Think about my purpose and reader by planning my recount

On monday Room 6 had an egg race. It was kind of weird because why would a teacher give us eggs and tell us weird things like take care of them.

This morning the most weirdest thing happened. Our teacher Mr Goodwin said he was giving us little friends. At first I thought he was crazy but he also said they were very gentle and you must take care of them.

Then all of a sudden everybody's starts talking saying it’s an egg it’s an egg. Then Mr Goodwin reaches out for his cupboard and gets out eggs and a bunch of spoons. He handed us each one egg for two partners. Then told us to draw faces on the egg and name them if you want. I knew exactly what we were doing.

That's when we lined up outside and started walking. I didn't know where we were walking until we came to the court and started walking to the senior playground. Then our teacher Mr Goodwin handed one spoon to me and my partner. Everybody gotted a spoon and that’s when he told us one of your partners have to stand at the end of the playground and you have to walk to them with your egg in your spoon.   

I thought the egg friend race was fun and enjoyable too. I liked the part when one of the girls took the risk by going rock climbing and holding the egg with one hand. At the end when she got to the top she dropped it. It was funny too because a few people dropped their egg and even one girl dropped it and it cracked open on the ground and the egg spilled all over.

Market Day Recount

Market day recount

WALT: Write an interesting and detailed recount.
Last Friday we had our market day. Our market day is we buy other people's products with our pts. Pts is our money it stand for Pt England we can also bank it. Anyway at the market day we made our products in our business groups using the material we borrowed from our business teacher. I remember using the hot glue to make my product it stung me badly on my finger it felt like hot boiling lava.  

We have our market day because it’s for fun. It’s kind of useless using pts for nothing you get the idea, anyway we have business groups for a reason. It’s for our products it’s where we make it without our business group’s we can’t buy anything at the market day because there is nothing to sell so that’s why we have business groups and a market day. In my business group I made rubber band guns it was easy to make but the peg on the rubber band gun was easy to be broken.


Setting up was kind of hard because we didn't have enough space. Plus next to us was the crossbow group and they took most of the space. But we were lucky at least we setted up the cups so they can shoot them down with the rubber band gun. And we also had a chance to put 2 pt in a cup and who ever shot it down would win it but we didn't know where to get 2 pt.

At the market day it was hard to choose what to buy like candles or loom bands or cakes and all those other stuff. Because they were to expensive and I had 10 pt and I spended 6 pt and 50 pieces on loom bands I was left with a little money but thanks to my partner Zack who was selling my rubber band guns I had more money than I had in the first place.

Selling at the market day was easy but it was hard to get there attention even though we made signs it was still hard. Plus the rubber band gun in the first place costed 1pt and 50 pieces it was too expensive for them so we changed the price to 1 pt. And then we had customers coming and going one by one buying. But the problem was we only made 12 rubber band guns that we got sold out quickly and we ended up with 18 pt.

My thoughts about the market day is that it was fun, but everything was too expensive like loom bands for 6 pt when some people only had 10 pt I think they should have made the price a little cheaper because they would be left with only 3 pt once they buy it.   

Here is a recount that I made about our market day last Friday. Our task was to write a peace of writing explaining what is our market day why are we having a market day what did I make with my business group to sell Setting up our group and conclusion.

Adam Trade fair recount

This Term our topic is Trade and enterprise. Enterprising means having or showing initiative and resourcefulness. For example the year 7 and 8 are seeing what they can do with twenty dollars. If I had twenty dollars I would save it up, it’s much better,soon you will have a lot of money plus you can buy anything you want, thats showing initiative and  resourcefulness.

This Term the year 5 and 6 have held a trade fair. Our trade fair is sort of like a fair it’s just that we make and sell. At the trade fair we took orders from people so that when they go away next time we can get it ready for them. At the trade fair we had a table set out and some people even started to yell out to get their product. And some people even setted a fun game for people to win a prize that was my favourite part about the trade fair.


We had to choose our business groups for the trade fair. We called it business groups because we crafted and made it’s sort of like a job. We were lucky to choose our business groups, out of 6 groups Homeware, Toys, Kitchen, Jewelry, Custom stationery and Music, I chose toys. In toy’s I made a rubber band gun. With the rubber band gun we made a shooting range, the aim was to shoot all the cups down.

At the trade fair I enjoyed the experience even though I didn't get to go shopping or buy anything I still enjoyed it. My favourite part at the trade fair was when people came in to have a try at the shooting range. Next to my business group was the tin pin bowling group. It was sort of like we were enemies because people mostly came to their business group because they were hearing that if you get them all down your name goes down in the raffle ticket draw.     


We were sort of lucky because we gotted to have another trade fair in week 8. But we only got 2 weeks left until the next trade fair. But so far me and my partner zack have catched up with making our rubber band gun. And I hope at the next trade fair I can get more orders.














Here is a peace of writing that I have made about the trade fair. Our task was to write what our product was what happened what were our stories what group we were in and what the trade fair was. My favourite part about this writing is when I talked about our group next to us tin pin bowling.

Maths Problem Solving Week 4: Term 3

WALT: Add and subtract decimals.

Today for this problem solving presentation We subtracted decimals but in a harder way.
For example 3.1 - 1.7 =? Now first we subtract 3 by 1 that equals 2. Subtract
1 by 7 that will equal nothing.1.7 + 1.4 = 3.1  1.7 + .3 = 2.   .2 + 1.1 = 3.1
And that is how is how you solve it.

Maths Teacher Lesson Week 3: Term 3

WALT: Add and Subtract Decimals

Today for Teacher lesson we focused on subtracting decimals.
But today we learnt how to subtract decimals that wasn't possible to subtract.
For example 3.1 - 1.7 =? Now first we subtract 3 by 1 that equals 2. Subtract
1 by 7 that will equal nothing.1.7 + 1.4 = 3.1  1.7 + .3 = 2.   .2 + 1.1 = 3.1
And that is how is how you solve it.

Disgusting Non delicious Jaffas Chocolate

Disgusting Non delicious Jaffas Chocolate

Jaffas. If Mum would serve that for dessert I would say no to that.

Dairy milk Jaffas is a new chocolate with small little orange chocolates inside it. On the packet it shows the small orange chocolates that are mixed with dairy milk chocolate.

I thought of the product needed to be arrested under law for selling to people disgusting chocolate. It looked delicious in the first place but once you put it in you mouth and it starts to melt you can taste the orange mixed with chocolate. It smelt like nothing as I thought that it had no smell it might taste nice but once again it tasted non delicious. As I felt it it quickly started
to melt in my hands yet it was quite hot in the classroom It felt like I was in the Sahara desert.

The taste of it might taste disgusting but if I would to change the product and add something new I would change the jaffas to a strawberry flavour. The reason why I would change the flavour to strawberry is because It has sweetness in it and the flavour is much bitter than orange.
I would not recommend the product because of all the small orange chocolates. I like the dairy milk chocolate because it’s a usual and normal chocolate that just taste normal. I think that I’d recommend it as a no because orange flavored chocolates is not someone's type of chocolate.

Bean bags for hire 3pt Whole day

Bean bags for hire

Bean bags are the most comfortable and luxurious chair to sit on.

During class time the bean bags are available for hire to sit on. Instead of sitting on the hard uncomfortable floor or on a chair, you will be able to sit on the relaxing bean bag to settle back and do your work.

The bean bags are filled with soft expensive beans and covered in a rubber skin. They can be sliced into the shape of your choice. You can choose to sit on the bean bag, or use it to lean back on and relax quietly.

The bean bags come in two magnificent different colours. A blue one like the ocean, and a green one like a lake full of ducks. It’s your choice which one you want to sit on and relax.

The price is 3pt. You pay once at the beginning of the day when the sun is awake and then you can use the beanbag for the rest of the day for sitting on and relaxing.

Remember for 3pt you can sit at a beanbag during class all day.

Today we wrote about a advertisement about bean bags. For this task we had to 
persuaded people to buy it make them interested in it. We wrote Instead of sitting on hard
floor you can sit on the comfortable bean bag.

If I had a million dollars

WALT: Write effective paragraphs using juicy words.
If I had a million Dollars at the Mall?
                                                                                                   

Why would having a million dollars at the mall be fun? Having a million dollars at the mall will be a tremendous amount of fun because you get to buy anything you want including electronic devices, shoes, games and other stuff, and you don’t have to check the prices.

In toy world I would buy the whole set of Lego. I would buy Lego because you can
create your own tower, cars, ships and other stuff. You can even make
a huge city and have a collection of all the Lego sets in toy world.


If I had a million dollars in JB Hifi I would buy a Wii u. I would
buy a Wii u because it has a touch screen you can play with friends
online and challenge them on games. Also because you can
play with your family.


If I had a million dollars I would go to the movies . Another thing
I would do at the movies is watching anything I want.
The best part is that you can eat popcorn and other food too.

It would be fun buying stuff at the mall with a million dollars, however
it wouldn't be a good use of money spending on these things. If
I had a million dollars I would donate it to world vision for those
who are poor and homeless.


Our task was to write a peace of writing about if we had a million dollars at the mall.
Also we thought of what we could buy at the malls stores like the warehouse, EB games
footlocker and other stores. One of my favourite shopping centers at the mall is JB Hifi.
I love JB Hifi because it has all the games you want for your console.

Jungle run

                                                                                     














Today we played our board game Jungle run. First one to the end was
the winner. In the game we had some rules. My favourite rule was
if you move 2 squares you go back two squares. The steps were if
you landed on a icon you have to follow what it said. Here is a link of the
rules.
