Dear Term Four Me

LI: To Reflect on Personal Goals.

Dear Term One Paige.
I have had the bestest year being in room 5 with all these amazing people and my lovely teacher I have leveled up in all my subjects I have work so so very hard to do this and I’m hoping to become head girl next year I think watching Fine do all that hard work be an awesome head lader has made me think that I can do it too.Camp was also part. of this year I loved it so much it was GREAT, everyone become closer and closer everyday I loved how we are all close now. We are moving into the new classrooms they look completely different to the ones we have now! I can’t wai. I have tried very hard to ignore all distractions this year but I have to be honest if I say I ignore ALL then I’d be lying. Most of my tasks are complete and uptodate but again if I said I had completed every single task I would be lying. I have to say this has been the best year for me and I really can’t wait to see what next year has hidden for me I hope it’s a completely different year hard challenges and fun times.

This is my letter back to term one me. I am happy about all that I have done this year and I really do love being in this class and I have be friended every single one of the people in this class over the year and I'm going to sure miss the people in the class, that are moving to other school and/or going off to collage.

What is problem solving :Maths:

What is problem solving?
Problem solving, What is it?
Well problem solving is when you are looking to find an answer that's not there so then you will have the best aspect to complete your problem.
Problem solving, Do you only use it in maths?
No, You use it everywhere you go even on your way to where you are going, you use problem solving when you are looking for your lost left sock that hides all the time, You use it when you on the road and you're looking for signs to help you get to Nana's and papas house.
You are always solving problems even when you don’t know it.

Today in maths we had to write a maths paragraph on What is problem solving? we had to do this because when we do test on write about maths we don't do so well, So our teacher Mrs Anderson said "Write me a maths paragraph on What is problem solving" and we did. She then told us to find a critical friend and tell them about what you wrote. We then commented on eachothers work.

Voting For the Flag results

Today we had a school vote based on which flag we would want the flag to be changed to. Every student in our school had a chance to choose which flag they wanted. Mr. Johnston shared the results with us today. I have made a pie chart showcasing all the results with percentages. In my opinion, the results were very interesting especially the Black and White Koru which is only 4 percent out of 100. I would have expected a much higher result with that particular flag.

Choosing a New Flag For New Zealand

All the pupils in Panmure Bridge School voted for which ever flag they liked best, in the options above. We had 4 minutes to read each flag's meaning behind it independently, 3 minutes to get with a partner and talk about your reasons for why you like the flag you're going to chose, 2 minutes to find a new buddy and talk with them about it, and then 1 minute to find a group of 4 to discuss your own perspectives on each flag. We did this because we work better together. 3 of the people in our group chose the last flag in the picture, for reasons such as: I made personal connections to it, It represents multiple cultures and also because it is instantly recognized as New Zealand's. 2 of the people in our group chose the first flag for reasons such as:  I liked the design and because it's easily recognized as ours due to the Silver Fern. Although they are very alike, we still had reasons for choosing the other flag. The 3 of who chose the red flag, liked it because it represented blood, yet some of us chose the black flag because it represents our history and the night.

The flags we chose are above. The first flag is the flag that 2 of the people in our group voted for and the last flag is the one that 3 of the people in our group voted for.

The Last Baskball Session

Our Final Basketball Session went well. We did our Usually warm-up, then we went onto playing an actual Basketball Game. After the basketball game we played Golden Child. When one team shoots and tries to get it in the hoop while the other team, one person would run until the other team gets the ball into the hop and that persons would stop. Then After the person goes. If the person can gets all the way to the other side, then they are safe. When it comes up to the last person, that last person is called "Golden Child" where they run and when they pass the people who were out, that person follows them to the end. While the other team hurrys and rush to get the golden child out and while the golden child runs passed the other people they would get up and run as fast as they could to win. We played that until our time was up. I really enjoyed the basketball session. I got a shoot in the hoop and I got the chance of being Golden child. I had so much fun.

Today we had Tech I'm in Wood work with Mr Grundy, and I am making something for my mum, I find it very interesting learning how to make things out of wood. My favourite part about wood work is our teacher Mr Grundy I like because he is a bit strict for little things, but if we are good and have a good attitude and safe then he is nice and realised. The thing I don't like about it is all the wood dust because it gets all over my shoes and all in my eyes. But I'm having fun at Wood work!

Direct Speech

“Do you think schools should provide breakfast for kids?” asked Jasmine.
“Yes they should, remember when you went to school and was hunger and you were asking people for food then they made fun of you, you didn’t like it so why would they like it?” stated Paige.
“It’s not funny to be hungry and get made fun of”remarked Jasmine.
“I know so do you think they should provide breakfast in school’s? I know I think they should” Paige explained.
“Well yea because some parents can’t afford food for their family” Jasmine said.
“So we’re on an agreement?” Paige wondered.

“Yes, Yes we are,” Jasmine wept

Camp Letter

Dear Mr Grady

Thank You so much for helping look after everyone at camp. Thank you for coming along on that long three hour walk around the Cossey/Massey Track and taking photos of everyone climbing and crossing that cold lake while getting wet, also thank you for lending me you jumper (it was very warm).

Thank you so much for waking everybody up by the way you were very loud ! I cant believe you had to get up at five in the morning just to help make breakfast but I guess you got warm making breakfast like I did. I had fun being your partner for Orienteering and getting to take photos on your camera, that was awesome. We came first place out of everyone at camp because we only had one number left.

Thank you so much for coming to camp with us it was awesome.

From Paige

Five Minute's Of Camp

Five Minute’s Of Camp

Mr Grady and I had found the letter A! I had taken a photo of it as a memory when looking back at the experience at camp - especially since Mr Grady and I had beat everyone in finding all the letters! We were really good at orienteering. After I had taken the photo, Mr Grady and I were back to running. The next letter we needed to find was L. I looked at the map, L was the hardest letter to find out of all the letters, so Mr Grady had a look at the map then all of a sudden - he starts to run! He knew where to go, so I followed him. We ran past all the other orienteering. The clue was ‘on the path’. I looked everywhere on the path then I heard Mr Grady shout “Found it!” - it was on the side of the path. L was our last letter to find. We ran back to the instructor hoping we had run, amazingly, we were the first to finish!
