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.
