Term 4 Review

Maths - in maths I have been working on my times tables and I feel pretty good about them but I could be better.

Writing - I still find writing difficult - I struggle putting what is in my head on to the paper.

Reading - I have bought some new books called Bad Guys which I loved and this has helped me become more interested in reading.

Spelling - this term I have rocketed through the list of spelling - this is because I have been practising heaps.

Other stuff - this term I entered the Amazing Race at Hamilton Gardens.  My team mates were Boston, Leah, Zara, Breea, Nancy, Josh, Ava - and we were called the Pirongia Rebels and our team all had painted moutaches on our faces!  We had to complete obstacle courses, puzzles, quizzes, and other games within a certain time limit.  It was fun.


Technology

This term for technology we had to find a need and fill it!  After lots of thinking I came up with the idea of making a sun shade for electronic devices so you could use your cellhone, ipad or laptop outside without any gleer or shade on your screen.  I did lots of brainstorming with my family to get lots of ideas on how to make a sun shade - firstly for a cellphone, then ipad and laptop.  In the end the idea I went with was to make a lightwweight, easy to use and carry, sunshade made of paper and a cardboard box.  It worked pretty good and we used a magnetic strip to hold the device in place.

Cyber Safety


                                                      Protect your Password like Family

Me and Caleb found a picture and we had to make a caption to do with cyber safety.  This is it above. We learnt that you should never give out your passwords to anyone.

Production

For production we had choices for what group we wanted to be in - they included Africa, Fantasy, an Underwater scene, and Korea.  I choose Africa because its my favourite country.  We auditioned for what animal we wanted to be with Mrs Strathan.  I auditioned to be a meerkat  and I got in.  We practised 3 times a week. Being a meerkat meant we had to scamper and look around at the audience.  My costume was made out of a onesie.  Being in the production was better than what I thought.  I was quite nervous but after we finished I felt pretty good.

Science

In science this term we had to choose a topic and we had to research it.  I started with 'Why did the Ice Age Beasts die out?'  My second topic was 'Why can the Thailand Walking Catfish survive out of water?'  My third topic was 'How can chameleon's change colour?'

I researched all these topics using the internet.  I googled them for information, and watched videos on you tube.  My favourite topic was the chameleon changing colour because it was quite fascinating how their skin is actually white and see through, and their body blends in with its surroundings.  They change colour so predators can't get them.  Not all chameleon can change colour - there are some smaller species that can not.
