Scientific writing

Kia ora

We are learning how to read and write scientific reports. We have been doing experiments and writing about them. This is a reading activity we did. We had to be able to match a title for a report with a wondering question.

Freezing Water.
What will happen when you mix vinegar and baking soda?
Floating and Sinking.
What will happen to an ice cube if you take it out of the freezer?
Kitchen Chemistry.
Which materials make the best insulators?
Disappearing Water.
What happens when you put a container of water into a freezer?
Keep Your Cool.
What will happen to a puddle of water on a hot day?
Ice Cube Experiment.

Mothers' Day

We have been learning how to get a better score for vocabulary when we write by using similes and metaphors. We had to write using a hook as well. Here is my work.

“ Happy Mothers’ Day!!” I shouted. I snuck into Mum’s room like a mouse. We made yummy pancakes with golden syrup. We had a busy day. We rode the motorbikes down the farm. I was a cheetah chasing my brother through the lush green grass. We rode the push bikes down the hill.

Later, we went to Kerikeri. Zaedyn gave Mum a love heart and a ring. I gave her my super hero mum poem and a kiss. Dad yelled, “HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!!”  We had roast for dinner and pork chops. I had to do everything and do you know why? Because it was Mothers’ Day.

Venn diagram

Walt: create Venn Diagrams.

Kia ora, We have been learning how to create a Venn diagram which compares and contrasts two different animals. Our teachers think that learning about Venn diagrams will help us get better at using compare and contrast vocabulary and then we will be able to write more interesting reports about things. Our teachers say it is good to be able to notice what is the same and different about things. I chose to compare and contrast.

Multapication task

This week we have been focusing on multiplication . On Monday we started off easy then got harder and harder. We do this everyday except the weekends and Friday because miss H has gone away. I am proud of my score. My next step is to get a high a score. I am struggling on my fractions like 3/7 = -/49 I'm struggling because I find multiplication hard. 

To work these fractions out you have to times the top number by a number to give you the answer of the number on the top of the other fraction. This is the same for the bottom number.
