Today at 10:20 all of my class had dance, when we arrived Dean that teacher told us to get into lines. The first dance did was the hip hop to Uptown funk, we had finished the whole dance so today was about perfecting it and adding in some little things. Then we moved onto the jive I had to partner up with Liam, we had to do the whole dance from the beginning and then go over one of the steps called over the head behind the back. After our dance time had finished I said to Ashley hat me and her had shown respect by joining in on the dance and listening to Dean.

On Friday I had garden to table, Mr McAven put us into pairs I was with Ashley and Dabok. When we were at the garden Mr McAven gave us a job to do, our job was weeding. We had to weed plant box's 16,14,18 and 20. After we had done that Mr McAven told us that if we wanted to do more we could so we did. Just before the bell rang we got given some little kids to help us the first thing we did with them was get them gloves, then we told them what to do when weeding. After about ten minutes the bell rang so we had to get the little kids back to class and wash their hands. When I was walking them back to their class I asked if they enjoyed gardening and they said yes, I felt very proud of my self for taking part in them having fun.

I can apply the strategy to problem solving questions



I can apply the strategy to problem solving questions


Please complete these two problems. You will need to explain how you got the answer.

Question 1
In our household, there are twice as many cats as humans, with sixty legs in total.

How many cats are there to be fed?
12
I got this answer by working out the ratio of cats to humans which was two to one, I then worked out the leg ratio which was eight to two I then worked out the percentage of human legs to cat legs and then applied it to the total number of sixty.



Question 2
Three men run a business together.
The proportion of the profit they each get at the end of the month is based on the proportion of the funds they have invested in the business.
The April profit is shared out so that Al gets one third, Bob gets one half and Chuck gets one sixth.
In May, Des joins the group, investing half as much as Bob invested.
What share of the profit can Des expect to get?
¼ because Bob got half so if you half that it is a quarter.

On Monday it was assembly and the choir was singing in it. When the choir was asked to come up onto the stage everyone walked on, we had a sheet of paper with the lyrics on it so if we got stuck we could look at that. The first song we were singing was How far i'll go and I thought we sang that pretty well. Our second song was Africa and that was spectacular because we had added harmonies into it so that one half of the group was singing high and the other was singing low. After we had finished I told my friend that we had sung both songs really well and that by joining choir we have shown community.

Today at lunch time I had PALS with Riley, we were doing moon hopper's and stilts. The first thing we did was go to the PE shed and get out the gear. Then we walked down to the area we were playing in and set everything up. As soon as the bell rang one little girl came running to us and followed by her was more and more little kids. Everything was going good we were handing out POZIS and having fun. When it was 10 past 1 we started to tell people that we were packing up. While we were packing up and just about to take everything back to the PE shed Anneke came over to us, she said that she wanted to help carry the stuff back so we said yes. When we were all finished I said to Riley that we showed the care value of community by helping out around the school.

Today at lunch time I had band practice. When I got there I saw that Jak was there, I walked into the radio station room and got out a stand then tuned my guitar. I helped Emily out with her drum set. Then we started to practice, we practiced can't stop the feeling. It was going alright. Mr Rule said that we would be preforming in three weeks and that made me a little bit nervous. Later on Mr Rule made only the guitars play and then I got really worried about preforming because I noticed that it wasn't that great, but that helped me want to motivate myself to keep practicing so I can get better and better.
