Neil Armstrong

Walt: Gather, evaluate and synthesise information across a range of texts.

Our task was to evaluate and synthesise information that we gathered from different websites. We needed to check out different websites to see if the information we gathered was true or false. Afterwards, we had to gather photo's and video's to explain the process, when Neil was inspired to becoming the first man on the moon.

Immersion Assembly - Term 3

Walt: Write about the Immersion Assembly that took place in our school hall.

What impact does the moon have on Earth? We humans have not been looking after our natural resources that we have on our planet. Our theme for this term is called “Guardians of the Galaxy!” We’re not only learning about our planet, but are focusing on other things that is beyond earth and the atmosphere in space.

Once we entered the hall for our immersion assembly. Suddenly, the lights turned off and all we could see were the southern lights that was glowing on the ceiling. The colours were bright, we were all fascinated by the different colours. It felt like we were all in space. Then the drone flew all over the hall.

Mr Burt and Mrs Nua was pretending to be like aliens and invade our world. But then, Mr Jacobsen and Mr Somerville came in to save us from the aliens. They both used laser staff to terminate the alien's. There are lot’s of things that happens in space like, galaxies, universe, gravity, milky way, constellations, black holes and an aurora. The stars in outer space shine just like matariki stars and they are really 

One of my main highlights was watching Team 1’s movie about how the moon and sun rotate around our planet. They are learning about how both the sun and moon affect our planet and what is the main purpose of them even existing?

My other favourite highlight about the assembly was watching the Team 3's movie. They were talking about our daily lives and talking about how time runs in the galaxy, also how it affects us. I really enjoyed watching the movies and Team 5's acting that they put together, all by themselves.

Mrs Judd's Extension Work!

See if you can solve these word problems. Show how you worked it out!! (use brackets to expand numbers)

1. It rained 1.35 inches on Saturday and 1.98 inches on Sunday. How much did it rain on Saturday and Sunday combined?

1.35 + 1.98 = 3.33
(10 + 10 = 20) + (0.3 + 0.9 = 1.2) + (.5 + .8 = 1.3) 


2. There were 7.6 litres of water in Jacob's bathtub. Then 2.9 litres drained out. How much water is left in the bathtub?

7.6 - 2.9 = 4.7
(0.7 - 0.2 = 0.5) + (.6 - .9 = 0.3)


3. A carpenter bought a piece of wood that was 6.15 meters long. Then he sawed 2.14 meters off the end. How long is the piece of wood now?

6.15 - 2.14 = 4.01
(60 - 20 = 40) + (0.1 - 0.1 = 0) + (.5 - .4 = .1)


4. A chef bought 4.2 kilograms of almonds and 7.8 kilograms of pecans. How many kilograms of nuts did the chef buy in all?

4.2 + 7.8 = 12
(40 + 70 = 110) + (0.2 + 0.8 = 1)


5. It snowed 8.9 inches on Monday and 3.9 inches on Tuesday. How much did it snow on Monday and Tuesday combined?

8.9 + 3.9 = 12.8
(80 + 30 = 110) + (0.9 + 0.9 = 1.8)


6. It rained 0.97 cm on Monday. On Tuesday, it rained 0.4 cm less than on Monday. How much did it rain on Tuesday? READ CAREFULLY-THIS ONE WILL TRY AND TRICK YOU!
0.97 - 0.4 = 1.05
(0 - 0 = 0) + (0.9 - 0.4 = 0.5) + .7


7. Omar spent Saturday picking berries at a berry farm. In the morning, he picked 3.61 kg of berries. In the afternoon, he picked 2.4 kgs. How many pounds of berries did Omar pick in all?

3.61 + 2.4 = 6.01
(30 + 20 = 50) + (0.6 + 0.4 = 1) + .1


8. A bee colony produced 0.91 pounds of honey, but bears ate 0.9 pounds of it. How much honey remains?
0.91 - 0.9 = 0.01
(0 - 0 = 0) + (0.9 - 0.9 = 0) + .9


9. Oscar bought 5.87 pounds of melon and 3.18 pounds of cherries. How much fruit did he buy in all?
5.87 + 3.18 = 9.05
(50 + 30 = 80) + (0.8 + 0.1 = 0.9) + (.7 + .8 = 1.5)


10. Vince mixed 0.8 grams of salt into a pot of soup he was cooking. Before he served the soup, Vince added 0.25 grams of salt. How much salt did Vince put into the soup in all?
0.8 + 0.25 = 1.05
(0 + 0 = 0) + (0.8 + 0.2 = 1) + .5

Persuasive Writing - Introduction

Walt: Plan out a piece of persuasive writing

Our task was to watch the video called "Persuasive Writing." We needed to learn more about hooking our audience and wanting them to read more, about what we have to say to them. We had to use the language features on what we need in a persuasive writing. Afterwards, we needed to chose which question sounds better, more interesting and will hook our audiences.

Persuasive Writing - Brainstorm

Walt: Plan out a piece of writing
Our task was to make a copy of the google drawing and to complete it. We needed to include the 5 why's on what we would like to change at home, school, classroom, community and the entire world. We had to think critically about what we want to say, that would affect other people to listen to what you need to say.

Persuasive Writing - Reasons

Walt: Plan out a persuasive piece of writing
Our task was to create some reasons by using the google drawing that Mrs llaoa has created. We had to make our reasons, we had to make a counter argument about what others would say about your reasons. It took a lot of thinking to use and what we wanted to talk about.
