A dance to remember...

 For Writing, we have been looking at Explanation Writing. Miss Tupou decided to make it a bit more fun and help us remember the structure of an Explanation, by learning a dance move for each aspect.

For Explanation Structure - we identified it as: 

Title, Orientation (General Statement), Definition (Defining the phenomenon), Processes (Sequenced Paragraphs), and Conclusion.

Here is a video of our class dance to remember the structure of an Explanation.

Fun Run Term 4!

 Hi Everyone,

Last week, GTS and Glen Innes Primary took part in the annual Fun Run event hosted by Breakfast Club and Mr Steve.

We ran a distance of 2.4km from Pakuranga Sailing Club to St Kentigern School. At the finish line we had a sausage sizzle and free bottles of water to enjoy.

Liston's Maths work for the week

Today was our first google meet call with my class, it was fun and our teacher had some learning for us to do.
For Maths this week, my groups learning goal to use patterns to find fractions and shapes of sets. After we watched the teacher tools video, Miss Tupou asked us to stay back after our call so she can continue to teach us and help us understand the strategy. After our session with her, we got some follow-up questions to answer. We had to show how we worked out each question. Here is my work.

Hope's LCS task on personal highlights in life!

 For LCS our task for that is the list down our Personal Timeline. Using google drawing I've listed 15 personal highlights that have happened in my life until now. I've listed the events and the dates but ones that I could remember and feel okay with other people knowing about my past experiences. The 15 pieces of information are ones that I had fun doing and that made me a bit more social towards people.
