Square numbers to 100 and their matching square roots

In Maths we have been learning………..

Square numbers to 100 and their matching square roots.
This is part of our Number Knowledge.
It is important to just know these as we can use this knowledge in other areas of maths.

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

Here is an image of my Square Root Chart that can be found in my Maths book.

My next  step in Maths is to use this new knowledge to help me solve problems in a variety of other areas of Maths.

Election writing: I would mach for Labour

WALT: Write an effective argument for our chosen political party.

Let's do this, have you heard that before? I think that Labour has the best policies for health.
I am going to show you what polices that i would vote for: Ending HIV, Funding mobile devices for students and Building a new hospital in Dunedin.

First policy i will explain is to aim to end HIV in NZ by 2025.

Labour plan to end HIV in New Zealand by 2025 by getting better health care, why?
So that New Zealand can be a healthy country and so that it can get rid of the disease and maybe other disease too.

Labour has another good policy about funding mobile devices for students.

Labour also wanted to fund mobile divides to students at school, so people like families and students don't have to buy their own devices because they might not have enough money.

As well as funding devices for students labour also wants to build a new hospital  in dunedin.

Labour really wants to build a new hospital in dunedin, the hospital might need to be broken or its just that dunedin needs another hospital, the hospital that they have probably doesn't have enough room for people.

In my next paragraph i will be talking about the policy that i disagree with from another party.

National wants to allow DHBs to fluoridate drinking water, don’t know what Fluoridate is its in toothpaste and apparently helps with cavities, well NEWS FLASH it doesn't its also not good for our bodies.

In this i have been showing you what policies i would vote for and i think that labour has the best health policies.

I think that labour is the best party to vote for. Why? they have the best policies in health. Today i have talked about: Ending HIV in nz, Funding mobile devices for students and Building a new hospital in Dunedin.

Let's do this, but can we really?

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 Draft letter

Here is my reflection on the letter writing that we have done.
One thing that I found challenging about writing formal letters was to not use text langusage and make sure that the punctuation is right and it sounds formal.

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

I can recognise and understand a variety of grammatical constructions and some rhetorical patterns

In this unit I learnt that a Preposition is a word governing a noun or pronoun and expressing a relation to another word or element in the clause, E.g The man on the platform’and ‘She arrived after dinner’,

A grammatical construction is to with parts of speech.

In parts of speech, I already knew what a Noun, Adverb, Adjective, Pronoun and Adjective is.

The ones I didn’t know were Conjunction and Preposition.

Term 2 book review

                                      Anne Frank´s Dairy

                                                      By Anne frank 

This dairy is about this young girl named Anne frank she lived with her parents, Otto Frank and her mother Edith Frank she had a sister Margot Frank.
Her dairy is about her life in the world war ii and how she tried to survive.She and her family went into hiding because her family was a Jew,so that meant she was a Jew.The Nazis where trying to find all the Jews a kill them because apparently in those days everyone thought that the Jews where bad.

As well as the Frank family there are four other Jews in the Secret Annex in the house : Hermann and Auguste van Pels with their son Peter, and Fritz Pfeffer. Four of Otto's employees help them be in the hiding and make sure no one finds out about the annex.
The door to the annex is disguised as a book case.
If you want to find out if they get found and if she and her family survived you are gonna have to read her dairy.
I think this book is very interesting because after reading her dairy you would probably want to find out more about her and her family and who survived and you died.
I think people sould read this book its so interesting and good to read if you are bored.
