Problem Solving

This week for maths we completed a DLO based on Problem solving.
We put in an example and explanation on how to solve it. My buddies Marieta, Chavda and I felt that it was hard to solve. We then worked it out and used the strategy given from Ms Anderson.

Basic fact Boxes Subtraction

This week we completed the 20 basic fact box made by Mr Wong. This was made to challenge us and I think its a fun way to answer math questions. I found this easy to do as we had the chance to use one of the strategies given from Ms Anderson.

Michel mulipola

This week we had a Illustrator named Michel mulipola  come in from WWE. We had a conversation about Reading, Fortinite and also a bit of influence phrases. It was great as he had amazing art work and how he was self taught. Fun fact did you know that Michel mulipola wrestles? He plays for the WWE and he is also a gamer. During our conversation we got to view photos that he has drawn. We all learnt that you can achieve anything if you take risks and go for it. A big thank you to Michel mulipola  for sharing what he does and visiting our school.

Why Are Bridges Built?

A bridge is a structure built to cross rivers without closing the way underneath.
Bridges aren't just used for racing tracks and bungee jumping.
They are used for safe transport across rivers and lakes making this faster and easier.
Before the 18th century when bridges were not invented people took punts to cross rivers.
This was a serious risk. People would drown in the process of crossing
which made this a serious problem.

In the 18th century bridges were not invented and people were not aware
of the consequences of crossing rivers.
The fastest way to get from point A to point B was to swim across.
Punts and boats were the most common choices to cross, but even so this
caused accidents and death.
The punts and boats that were commonly used were not as safe as you would think.
This sometimes caused the boats or punt to sink or break down.
It was soon obvious that they needed to invent a structure easier for people to cross from
point a to b.

Ever since bridges were commonly used transportation was safer, faster and easier for
people to cross.
Also instead of risking lives people soon noticed that more bridges should be made.
People then started requesting for more bridges because of the benefits of it.
This meant no danger risks, death and drowning. More bridges such as the beam bridge,
arch bridge and truss bridge were soon to be made.

Bridges are usually put in a gap or a valley.
The reason to this is because its a better way of transport. For example a valley.
Without a bridge you’ll need to drive down and back up to get to the other side.
All bridges are put on top of a gap rather than the bottom.
This allows us to get through from point a to b, which was a lot more faster than driving or
walking up and down
a valley.

Bridges are built for the purpose of safety, for cars to cross and a faster transport
from point a to b.  
Bridges today have saved us from what we commonly call the New Zealand disease.

This week for writing I have been focusing on an Explanation confirming why bridges
are made. During this process I used my researching skills to put in the correct amount of

Wero Vector Water Park

This week we went to Wero Vector Water Park. We did lots kayaking and swimming in the water. The gear we used was: swim shoes, Swim suit, Life jacket and a helmet. It was so fun as we went through procedures learning about types of ways you can tell if the river is safe or not. One way is to check the speed of the river using a stick. First you through the stick into the water and walk along it. If you run then that would mean the river is to fast. In the end we had the chance to jump in and go onto the ramps. We went down and under the mine waterfalls witch kept us under water for a few seconds. I really enjoyed it because we had alot of fun learning and swimming in the rough water that is a immitation of a river.

Fractions DLO

This week for maths I created a DLO on how to solve fractions. In this DLO I have explained the stratigey and have given examples.

KiwiCan / Perserverence

This week for Kiwi can our topic is  perseverance.  Perseverance is when you keep on trying to accomplish something or challenge yourself for what prepares you best. For example:
You dont want to walk to get to school but you still go anyway. Kiwi can was fun. We played invisible touch and connect. For invisible touch we put our self in 1 group each. We then started to try again and again to get a try. Even though the game was tough and one other teams were losing they still wanted to try again to win.
