1. Make sure you read the questions in full before attempting to answer them.
2. Highlight the important parts of the question.
3. Make sure you show all working.
I did all of this. Some may be wrong but I really did try my best. I found the question on slide number four. How I solved it was by...
Taking the information and using it. Like this;

This would have been really helpful if we had a presentation this week. But I've already finished it and now I just needed to post this.

### Extension trip to Hidden Figures

WALT: Write a review or reflection about school trips right after they have happened.

On the 8th of March the year 7 & 8 Extension group went to see Hidden Figures. We went because one of our teacher's sister, paid for our trip . That week I learnt that back then in the 60's mathematician were called computers. I also learnt when the first computer had help from Dorothy Vaughan. It was called IBM. The extension group is very thankful for that great day so thank you to Mr Vogt's sister. Here's a brief explanation of the movie. It's about three incredible women who work for NASA. They all helped astronauts go to space.

### Why do we need to drink water?

WALT: Use the' Title-Introduction-Information-Conclusion (TIIC) structure to write an explanation.

Why do we need to drink water?  I ask myself that question all the time. Then I answer that question with… to keep hydrated.  But that isn’t the only answer.  I’m gonna tell you about how drinking water can help you.

Keeping hydrated is one of the number one things of drinking water. When you’re dehydrated you lose fluids.  You could lose those fluids from diarrhea, vomiting, sweating or exercise.  Headaches can bug you and can be painful.  With water, headaches can be prevented and cured with water.

Water is so helpful for everything; from washing cars to have a relaxing time in the pool.  We know that we use water to wash off dirt on the outside of our bodies. But did you know that is can also clean the inside of our bodies. Water cleanses the toxins and digestive systems. When you're choking and drink a glass, the choking stops. That is because it goes through your mouth and to where the choking is happening. It pushes the food down into your stomach.

Don’t take water for granted. There are places in the world where water is hard to get. If you have great supply of water, use it wisely.

This writing was from many weeks ago but here it is now. It took a while for me to get it done but its here now. I learnt that when writing a explanation is that you need TIIC. That means Title, Introduction, Information and Conclusion.
