Question 1:


Show your working and answer here: I think that the answer is 1/15 this is a photo of my working
out.

Question 2:
Show your working and answers here:
2a: $2 because then the children get two each and they might get one of each colour then they can swap

2b:$3 because then they can get three and they might get two of one colour and the one another colour.


2c:$6 because then they get two each and it has a higher chance of getting two of the same colour.


Question 3:


Show your working and answer here: For the first question i think it is 16 because you just need to times it by four which equals 16.


For the second question i think that it is 400 because there are 4 tiles and then u just times it by one hundred.

Technology merit post 5

Today at Technology my group C we had finished in foods so we went to wood work, Today was also the day that I had Canterbury swimming so I had to leave at 10:10, In wood work we are making speakers and we get to choose what color they are and what shape, since we moved to wood work that means that our time for mandarin has changed now it is at 9:30-10:00 after that we went back to wood work and we started planning fro our speakers. Then it was time for me to go to Canterbury swimming. The care value that I showed was respect because I was respecting the mandarin teachers when they were talking to us.

Term 1 Novel Study




Term 1 Novel Study


This term I have been reading and studying the novel See ya Simon By: David Hill
I found this novel Interesting and exciting because I learnt about muscular dystrophy and what he has to do about it and how he feels around other kids knowing that he has this disease


During the novel I had to complete two major assessment tasks. The first is an Explain Map which shows the consequences of a major event in the book. The second was a Describe++ Map (Inference map) which shows I how I have connected prior knowledge and other experiences to what I have been reading to make an inference.


National Standard this covers

  • Year 7/8  Standard
    • using several pieces of information to make inferences
      using their prior knowledge, along with information in the text, to interpret abstract ideas, complex plots, and sophisticated themes
    • I can use a range of strategies, such as inferring, to work out more complex words.
