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 to complete the IXL maths tasks because it was very frustrating for me when I did the strategy right but have missed something out.

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

Letter Writing

In Writing we have been learning to: Write a formal letter.

We have followed the writing process and have planned and drafted a formal letter.

This shows the process that we have followed.

Here is the letter that I have written.

Here is my reflection on the letter writing that we have done.

One thing that I found challenging about writing formal letters was remembering the correct format that I have to use.

My next step is: look for more opportunities to put my letter writing knowledge into practice in the future.

Excellence Blog Post #4 Home Learning Challenges

The Home learning challenge that I chose was: Design Your Own Challenge

I chose this challenge because I have quite a passion for art and I love to do stuff art based.

For this home learning challenge I decided to paint this piece of art based on snow and kind of like a winter wonderland. What motivated me to paint this was because the season is winter right now and I love the snow so I decided to paint this to make it winter themed. I liked the way how this turned out because it looks exactly how I wanted it to look and I think I did a great job on the mountain and making it look realistic. When I look at this, it makes me feel relaxed and it reminds of the great things during the winter season such as snow.

Something I would improve in this landscape to make it better would be to maybe paint a few more things on the left side of the canvas because there's not much really to look at and maybe some things on that side would make this painting look better.

The CARE Values that I showed while painting this are Active Thinking and Community.
I showed Active Thinking by thinking creatively and having a bit of motivation to help me decide what to paint. I showed Community by keeping my space clean so its easy to manage and to keep a nice and tidy environment.

I demonstrated Leadership by showing Motivation because I had something on my mind that motivated my to paint this.

Excellence Blog Post #10 Leadership Around The School ( Getting Involved )

              Netball At Morning Tea

Today at morning tea, my friends and I were playing a game of Netball. At first we were deciding between Basketball or Netball. We included others to play in our game and we got them to vote as well. There were quite a few votes for Basketball, but the majority was Netball. So then, the next thing we did was to form 2 teams. We made it easy and said boys verse girls. Obviously I was in the girls team. 

We then started playing the game and I got the first few goals. The girls were thrashing the boys. It was Alex, Jacinta and I verses three other boys. It was a very intense game of Netball, but I enjoyed it a lot. I was exhausted at the end, but that just means I got involved positively. Something I noticed while playing was spectacular teamwork throughout this whole game, from both teams. We all had great sportsmanship and really enjoyed our time out there. It was awesome!

The CARE values that I showed were, Excellence and Community.
I showed Excellence by having fun with the game even though I wasn't a netball-er I still tried my best.
I showed Community by making sure everyone in my team had a fair go with having the ball and sharing it around.

I demonstrated leadership by showing integrity by playing fairly by the rules and being honest.

Term 2 Book Reveiw

The Dead Girls Of Hysteria Hall.

The most interesting book I've read this term is called ' The Dead Girls Of Hysteria Hall.
This story is about a girl named Delia who recently moved into a new house. Through her journey of moving into this house, she discovers something really haunted about this house and tries to convince her mum to leave. She finds out that she is trapped inside this haunted house forever with no escape. It is heard that the between the walls of this house, lies the truths about the spirits that only Delia can uncover; that may set her free. Later on through the journey of the haunted house something magical happens full of memories and madness...

I think this book is definitely one of my favorite books I've read all time because i really enjoy horror stories and I recommend this story to anyone who enjoys horror or make believe.
