### Problem Solving-Week 7

WALT: Multiply and Divide decimals numbers.

In Problem Solving this week I have learnt about dividing decimal numbers. I have already learnt different ways to solve this sort of questions, and tried to find the right one that I can use every time. My buddy who helped me (Presayus) also did a question and I think that she has some very good solutions.

### Problem Solving-Week 6

WALT: Multiply and divide decimal numbers.

In maths Problem Solving this week, I learnt that it is very very important to look at the last number before answering. I had to do a whole lot of decimals question and the way that I worked it out was by looking at the number on the right. For example: 1893-546=?, before I answer I am going to look at the last two numbers. So 13-16=7, after that we solve the rest of the question. The end result would be 1347. So all I'm saying is to always look at the number on the right.

### What Am I?

WALT: Use our inferencing skills to find meaning in the text.

Here is my poem that sounds like something but is something else. I wrote this with the help of Rosalina. Hope you like it and guess it right.

For a little writing/reading activity, we wrote poems that explained something when it sounded like something else. We paired up and wrote a poem that was like an example that we saw. I tried this to some people and they guessed it in the end. I hope that you can try to guess it and get it right

### Team Four's Trade Fair

WALT: Use language that paints a picture in the mind of our reader.

This Terms topic is Trade and Enterprise and in team four we have our own business’, money and online banking accounts. Some of us have a job, which we had to write an application for. Because of all of this, we (team four) had our very own trade fair to advertise and sell our own products, I will tell you about this later in my writing.

Our topic Trade and Enterprise, focuses on the two important words. I thought about the words Trade and Enterprise and what they mean during the trade fair. In the Trade Fair, we had to take orders from  our customers, make orders for our product, gain interest from our customers, explain what the product was and say what they would have to trade for the product.

In our six business’ which are Toys, Kitchen, Custom Stationery, Jewellery, Musical Instruments and Homeware we had to prepare for the Trade Fair. I am in Toys, we had to take orders unlike the business Kitchen. We prepared in week one, two and three by making order forms, making example products and getting the price sorted. My product is squishy balls which sold very successfully at the Trade Fair.

At the Trade Fair we had turns with our work buddy, one of us had to go trading well the other had to stay at the stall. Our turns lasted for half of the whole time. I was the first to go trading with my earned 10 PT and I bought a lot of stuff, but I forgot to buy three things. They were an orange candle, mini loom band headphones and some food. At the our stall, my partner was supposed to be making orders but she gave two squishy balls from hand.

From all of this, I have learnt to always make more orders than we had in the Trade Fair or make it online. I cannot wait till week eight when we have our market. At the market we will give the orders to people and trading our products and giving by hand like my partner.  If you want to know what PT and Pieces are, click on the words.

In writing this week, we had a really good writing session. Each paragraph we had to write and in between them, we all came to the mat and our teacher talked to us. It was a really good season and I hope to do it next time.

### Vocabulary

WALT: Learn and use new Vocabulary.

This week, our teacher gave us a little test and this was included. We learnt about new Vocabulary like employer and salary. Even our teacher learnt something new about Salary and Wages. I hope to learn more about things like this in the future.

### Maths Teacher Lesson-Week 4

WALT: Work with decimals.

In Maths Teacher Lesson this week I have learnt to add when subtracting. For example: 3.364 - 5.597=?. When adding, you will take the second number and round it to the nearest whole number. Look underneath to see the whole solution.

### Auxiliary Verbs - Ms Tito

WALA(we are learning about): Auxiliary verbs and using them in sentences.

This week with Ms Tito, we have learnt about the Auxiliary Verbs. The verbs that we learnt were the basic, am, will, have and was. The Auxiliary Verbs are another word for helping verb, the help explain what is happening. I hope I will learn more of these in the future.

### Problem Solving-Week 5

WALT: Multiply and divide whole numbers.

This week in Problem Solving I have learnt to divid and multiple in whole numbers. If you were to do this, you would have to know you multiplication and division. For example: 67 x 34 = 1828. I know the answer because I know my multiplication and I could solve it fast. So all I have to do know is to find other ways to solve question like these.

### Maths Teacher Lesson-Week 3

WALT: Subtract decimals.

In Maths Teacher Lesson this week, I have learnt an easier way to subtract decimals. The way is to split the numbers into their place values and then subtract from there. For example: 16.63-8.51=8.12. This is the way I worked it out is by this. This is the some times the way I find the answer to subtraction questions.

### Maths Teacher Lesson-Week 2

WALT: Add and Subtract.

This week in Maths teacher lesson always to look at the number on the right before answering. The reason why to do this is so that you know if the number is going to end up in the next column. For example: 273+183=?. The way that I solve this is by doing this, 3+3=6, 170+180=350 then add the other hundred. The answer that I ended up with in the end is, 456. So my advice for you is to use this way to solve addition and subtraction questions.

### New Cadbury Gem

WALT: Use language that paints a picture in the mind of our reader.

The new Cadbury Jaffa’s Chocolate is a win win in my book of chocolate.

The Cadbury Jaffa’s Chocolate is a basic milk chocolate with Jaffa's inside. It’s the shape of a  square like a normal chocolate. Cadbury Jaffa’s Chocolate king size is \$3.50 at the supermarket.

When I first saw the Jaffa’s Chocolate, I thought it was going to have to much orange in it and it was bumpy so I thought it was going to be to crunchy. But it only had a pinch of orange in it and the bumpiness made no difference but it was a tiny bit crunchy . The taste of the chocolate was semi-sweet and perfect, so it was too rich and not too bitter. The chocolate smelt like the Cadbury milk chocolate and it felt like every other chocolate because of the shape. The Cadbury Jaffa’s Chocolate is in my top five of Chocolate’ s, so in my opinion it is delicious!
I think they could improve by cutting the Jaffa’s into smaller pieces and then putting it into the chocolate.  It would make it easier to eat it and easier to store in little containers. Except from that, I think that it is great the way it is.

I recommend the new Cadbury Jaffa’s Chocolate because it taste, smells, looks great. So if you think milk chocolate and orange together makes a great mix, this is the chocolate for you. If you do think that or do not think that, I think that you should still taste it.

In Writing this week, I have learnt about and how to paint a picture in the readers head. I have learnt different ways to say things. For example: I went to the shop and bought bread. I could change this a lot, I walked down to the shop (not in a hurry) to buy some fresh wheat meal bread. As you can see I have given you more information and changed it up a little bit. If you could image a person walking to the shop, then I have reached my goal. But if yiu did not, I have not reached my goal.

### Advice Blog-Fitness Watch

WALT: Think critically about what we read.

In Reading this week, I have learnt how to make decisions when it comes to advertisements. I have learnt to always look at the custom reviews. Once I looked at the ad for the product and it made it look great. Then I looked at the reviews and I thought again about the product. So my advice for you is to look at the reviews before buying something.

### Superb Window Cleaners

WALT: Put our self into the text.

Task: You are offering advice to someone who is looking at buying one of the two watches. You will need to review the watches and explain why you would suggest buying one or the other. Remember to use FREE TO USE images.

In reading we have been learning about putting our self into the text. So we are trying to get the message from the text (well that's what I have done). My message from this text is to keep my widows clean and window cleaning would be an awesome job. It would be very dangerous job but if you are careful I think you will be okay. If you have not notice, this is not real.

### Maths Teacher Lesson-Week 2

WALT: Add and subtract.

Last week in maths teacher lesson, we learnt how to add and subtract. We mostly looked at decimals and then we made them into fractions. For example; 2.4. The way I solve the question is by doing this; there is 2 and there 4/10, so if we add those together, it would equal to 2 and 4/10. So 2.4 in fractions would equal to 2 and 4/10's.

### PT's and Pieces

WALT: Write two paragraphs about PT's and Pieces.

This term our topic is trade and enterprise. So in team four, we have our own money that we can earn and spend. Instead of cent, we have pieces and instead of dollars, we have Pt's. We can earn pieces and Pt's by sitting up in class, cleaning up, doing jobs, coming to school and by lots of other things too. Everybody has a bank account (kids one) of their own where they keep there money of course. There are lots of ways we can spend our money, we could hire a bean bag or something else, we can also buy things at the auction that we have most weeks. We can also get a fine for either 3 PT's or 5 PT's. For example; you can get a fine for not being at school, not giving the right amount of money in the auction, standing up at eating time when a teacher has not said anything and loads more.

We also have six business's that we are all in. There is Toys, Kitchen, Custom Stationary, Homeware, Jewels and Accessory's and Musical Instruments. In these business's we have projects that we work on and then we can sell it at the market where everybody in our team can buy it. We have a teacher and a group of students in each business. Our team also have partners of two or three in those business's who make the projects. My project that I am working on is squishy balls made from balloons and flour.

It is only the start of the term and this has been really cool. So when we get into the middle of the term I might even have more than my goal. I wonder how much money I will have at the end of the term. Well until then, I should focus on my project.

### Biodiversity Animation

WALT: Create an animation with detail about biodiversity.

Last term in extension, I learnt about a bit about biodiversity. Our task was to create an animation that has detail about biodiversity. I have learnt what biodiversity is and what it means to our planet. I have made this animation to show what it is, what it is about, how we can help, how it is important to our planet and compare and contrast.

### Maths Problem Solving-Week 3

WALT: Add and subtract decimals.

Start Writing Here: In Problem Solving I have been learning how to solve questions on my own. I have learnt that sometimes it is okay to solve questions with the simple solution. For example; 0.87-0.64=?. The simple way to work this out is by spiting them and then subtracting. It looks like this 0.8-0.6=0.2 and then we do 0.07-0.04=0.03. Once I have done this I will have the answer, 0.2+0.03=0.23. So the answer would be 0.23.

### Bean Bags for Hire-3pt Whole Day

WALT:pursued the reader to agree with our message.

Bean bags are like a squishy comfortable cushion to relax on.

During class time the bean bags are available for hire to sit on for the whole day. Instead of sitting on the tough stiff floor or on a flat plastic chair, you will be able to sit on the comfortable squishy bean bag to do your work.

The bean bags are filled with soft beans which make it comfy and are covered in a rubber skin (which is not very rough so it is still comfy). They can be moulded into the shape of your choice. You can choose to sit on the bean bag, or use it to lean back to be relax, or you could use it as a soft chair or cushion.

The bean bags come in two different colors and sizes. A big dark lime green one, and a smaller daylight blue one. It’s your choice which one you want to sit or lean on, .

The price to hire the bean bag is 3pt. You pay once at the beginning of the day and then you can enjoy relaxing in the beanbag for the rest of the day.

Remember for 3pt you can enjoy working on the bean bag during class the whole day.

(These are not the real ones)

In reading this week, we had to re crafted a piece of writing about hiring bean bags in our class. I have learnt that whenever you are writing another sentence, you should always look back and read it again of the paragraph. I have use Thesaurus to get better words to re craft. This is supposed to be an advertisement in our class so we had to write like we writing a real advertisement.
