This week I have been practising making 10. We used our fingers, ten frames and playing cards.
I can quickly work out problems like this by looking at numbers that make ten.

5 + 7 + 8 + 3 + 2 =
7 + 3 = 10
8 + 2 = 10
10 + 10 + 5 = 25

Swimming Highlight

Learning intention: To be able to write about your highlight about your first time in the portable swimming pool.

My highlight was my first time in the pool at S.t Pius X School. I am a good swimmer and I’m excited and looking forward to swim.
After we changed into our togs we went straight into the court and into the swimming pool. As I got there I carefully walked on the step that goes in the pool. I got in the pool and I suddenly shivered. I walked around to get warm and jumped up and down. The coach came inside and he whistled loudly and we all froze. “Okay, we’re going to play some games” . We started off with a Simon-says game. We lined up at the corner of the pool and our coach started the game off. Some of the kids were cheating and one of us ended up winning.

After awhile the coach gave us a minute to find a space and practise our swimming. I quickly found my space and swam in it. We went out and I grabbed my towel and I headed to the girls bathroom and changed my wet clothes. I had the best time and felt fresh.

The Mana Spirit

The Mana Spirit show this morning was amazing. The teachers name was Bernard and he is a very talented man. He was very proud of what he has learnt from different cultures around the world. Bernard loves to dance and he showed us an American Indian, Maori, Hawaiian, Samoan and Hip-Hop dance. I enjoyed watching him doing the Samoan dance. It was the best show ever.

maths reflection

What I have learnt this week comes from my maths time. I learnt about multiplication and miners for example
How did I work out the answer, I made the 9 to become ten and I put down the 7 so 9x7=49 so this is how I got the answer was to make the nine to be the ten and then 10x7=70 then 70-30=49 . Wow it is like magic.

I learnt to use my 10 times table to solve other problems.
