On Friday I had buddy program. In our group we played bowling and donkey. The first activity we did was bowling with group one, then we played donkey. After we had group one we had group two, My favorite activity was definitely donkey because everyone took part and played fairly. I thought I showed the care value of Excellence because I was the only one in my group who took part with helping the kids, I also thought I showed the leadership trait of Integrity because I played fairly and honestly with the children.

On Thursday I had PALS, Riley and I were doing PALS. The first thing we did was get the sound box and set up, we didn't have to put chairs across the hall because fidget spinner club as stopped. Riley and I started setting up but we couldn't find the key to the box so we asked Mr Hilary, it turned out that we had a boy's look when we looked. So at 1:00 we started doing jump jam. When it was time to pack up we left the long one going because the other PALS didn't turn up. I thought that I showed the care value of active thinking because we put the long jump jam on because the others didn't turn up, I also thought I showed the leadership trait of  trustworthy because I turned up on time to my duty.

Yesterday I had PALS, Riley and I did jump jam as the field was closed. At the start we couldn't find the sound box, but then Mr M brought it to us. During jump jam we got on stage and did the moves with the video. After we had finished we kept on a video that went for ever because the people who were meant to be after us didn't show up. I thought I showed active thinking because I said to Riley that since the others didn't show up we would play the long video, I also thought I showed the leadership trait of resilience because when we couldn't find the sound box we felt like giving up but we kept pushing.

Today I had kapa haka. The first thing we did was sing a song called " the shark song". then after we had perfected that song we practiced hallelujah, this was harder because when we were singing the second verse of hallelujah we were in the wrong key. After kapa haka I thought I showed the care value of respect because I listened to the teacher, I also think I showed the leadership trait of goal focused because I didn't get distracted and focused on the speaker. 

Integers and Decimals

Maths - Integers and Decimals


In Maths we have been learning to find the common multiples and factors of numbers.




We have been solving equations for square roots, factors and multiples of numbers.
  1. Readability
  2. Accuracy
  3. Relevance
  4. Quality of language/ information.


This document shows the evidence that I have collected as I have completed the tasks.

My Next Step: Is to use this knowledge further by applying it to problem solving tasks and questions that I will solve in Maths.

Know the equivalent decimal and percentage forms for everyday fractions.

Know the equivalent decimal and percentage forms for everyday fractions.


In Maths we have been learning:
  • To convert between fractions, decimals , percentages and vice versa.




Here are the IXL screenshots that show evidence of my learning.  








The most challenging part about this unit of learning was turning fractions into decimals because at first I didn't get it but then Mr M showed me a simple way to do it .

My next learning step in Maths is to apply  this knowledge to help me solve a range of increasingly more complicated maths problems.

Yesterday I had PALS, Riley and I were doing jump jam. First of all the computer was playing up so we dicided to play Simon says. Mr Muller got the computer to work so we did jump jam for the last 10 minutes. During the 10 minutes we were handing out POZIS. After we had finished our duty I thought that I showed the care value of active thinking because when the computer wasn't working we problem solved and played Simon says. I also think I showed the leadership trait of active thinker because we thought of different ways to fix the computer.
