Music With Mrs Anderson

Today we had music lesson with Mrs Anderson, because Mrs Eeles is still not better to teach us music, so Mrs Anderson decided to teach us music. Everyone did wonderful job by trying to keep up with each other while their playing. We had to play a song called “When the saints go marching in”.  We played this song on an instrument called Xylophones. We had to work in two pairs first then join with another two pairs to make a group of four. I worked with Evelyn, Tiare, June, Ducati and I. After practicing the song we have to share it with other groups. Everyone did a great job and they kept playing the song in the right time which made the song sounds good. Everyone had a great time. We would like to say big thank you to Mrs Anderson for taking her time to teach us music. Everyone had a great time by playing the song with Mrs Anderson.

In my team there were Tiare, June, Courtney, Afu and me. We worked as a team and we were encouraging them to do the warm ups. After that we had a competition between two team.

For our maths me and Paige had a race between each other and I won. It was such a fun maths thing that we did because the first person to fill out there side of the half wins. This maths game helped us learn our times table and measurements. We both had really fun time by playing this game.

One of our C.A.R.E Award task was to do a Presentation on a respected Leader. Me, Tiare,Evelyn, Tim and Afu decided to do Tom Latham because we think he is a respected leader, and is a great role model.


One Wednesday we had Ukulele practice. Fine, Tim and Yvette taught us how to play Island songs. That was hard for because playing ukelele is very for me, so I played every single notes wrong. But Fine taught me step by step. SO it was little bit helpful. Then we have to play it for the music. The first part I did it right but the second was was little bit struggle.  But I still learn some things from them. I would like to say bag thank you to FIne, Tim and Yvette for taught us how to play Island song.

2x Math's DLO

Sajiha read a book with 6003 words in it in 4 weeks. In the first week she read 653 words. In the second week she read 497 words and in the third week she read 1183 words. How many more words did she read in week 4?

For this question first I added 1183, 497 and 653 which gives me 2333. Then I minus 6003 and 2333 which gives me 3670. So the answer is 3670. Sajiha read 3670 pages in week 4.

18 - 3 = 15
Third  of 15 is 5
5 x 2 = 10

Halatoa ate twice as many pancakes as Sebastian at lunchtime. Sebastian had another 3 pancakes for afternoon tea. Altogether they ate 18 pancakes. How many pancakes did Halatoa eat?

For this question first I subtract 18 and 3 which gives mes 15, than I found out that third of 15 is 5. After that I times 5 and 2 which gives me 10. 
So Halatoa ate 10 pancakes.

This activity helps me to add up in thousand and also helps me to lean how to divided. This is a easy way to learn how solve hard problems. This activity is very useful for me and helpful.

Recounts - Story Swap

Creepy old house in the woods
On July 13th 1995 there was an old looking rusty house sitting on top of a crowed bush of trees. The sun was rising down slowly as it became midnight. I didn't wanted to stay alone outside in the pitch dark. The wind blowed strongly and strongly that it strangely made the door open. I thought to my self if it was the best choice to go in side or stay outside. I said yes. I took one step inside the house and it felt like I was walking into a ghost trap. I couldn't risk the chance of getting murdered so I creeped in a dark room alone.

There were blood dripping from the celling. I rushed down stairs and saw a shadow following my movements. I turned slowly panicking like if something was gonna pop up. I realised that there was a girl all alone in the corner  holding her teddy bear screaming out ''HELP HELP''. At this moment I thought it was just a normal girl just like me. I looked at her like I was solving a crime. She was just a girl who disappeared in mid air like thin dust. I had a shock,I fainted and knock my head on the floor. I was dreaming desperately to get out of the house. Someone started to walk up to me and say follow me. I looked around but I couldn't see anything yet all I could hear is voices.

Today we write a story about an abandoned building. We have to work in a partner and we have to write the story on a piece of paper. I worked with Evelyn. The special thing in this writing was each person have to write a sentence and we have to make sure that it make sense and we use the correct punctuation. After that we have to read it loudly and we have to find all the mistakes that we made. For us it was difficult because we are not allowed to talk. But without talking we wrote a lot of sentence and it helps us to think al lot. We really enjoyed this activity because this was fun and helpful. The things that I learnt from this activity was when ever you work with partners you find all the mistakes that you have made.  Hope you really enjoyed our writing.

Holiday Reading (#2 )

New Cover

If you could design a new cover for the book what would it look like?  Draw a picture.
Post it onto your blog with the following information.
- Title : Tales From The Swamp
- Author :Kingi Mckinnon
- Type of Book : Fiction
- Why your cover is better

I think my cover is better because as you can see that I have apply some grass which is stay under that water and some bubbles. The difference between my cover and the book cover is that in the book cover they have apply lots of leaves and grass, but I just apply 11 or 12 grasses. I also think my cover is better because the real cover font is little bit hard but my font is easy to read. I think both covers are nice and colourful.

This is my new cover and I decided to d this because in my mind it says that the fonts is bad so should change it. I think you like my cover.
