This week I finished reading my book HOlES. It had 50 chapters and 200+ pages. I was really annoyed to put the book down. I wish the author made more chapters.
in maths I have been working on triangles. We had to find the tree main triangles a equilateral, isosceles and a scalene triangle. The we had to write the points and a difination about each one. Part 2 was similar but finding the angles. For this we did flip, slide and turn 90 degrees.
lastly in literacy we have been doing a test that goes for a couple of weeks. you had to write a narrative and plan it with a story graph. Then you had to publish it. The other thing you had to do was a recipical reading.
For literacy I am still reading holes, I am up to chapter 30 and still hooked and want to read more.
in maths we have been doing carisian planes and we have to use genomatry to measure our enicials .
apart from reading holes I am reading the choose your own adventure series I love how you decide your fate. My favorite one is race forever hope everyone loves these books and hope there is more new ones to come.
This week I started researching for my Big Idea. Our topic was the first Aboriginal cricket team and the first Aboriginal Artists.
i am currently ready holes for our litriture circle in literacy I am really temped to keep reading on because the book is so interesting and I always want to know what happens next. But I know that’s part of the challenge I can’t wait to find out what happens next. In the meantime I am reading the 39 story tree house by Andy Griffiths and terry Denton I is so funny and cool it’s a great book and can’t wait to we if there will be a 52 story tree house I really recommend this book.
in Maths we have been doing pyramids and using blocks to create a view and then a partner would have to use our drawings to rebuild it. I found your drawings had to be extremely accurate Orr the person couldn’t build it. I also enjoyed the build a pyramid challenge I found it fun and challenging

It is day fifty on this new island and all they are feeding us is Vegimite toast and dirty water. I don’t know how much longer i can last. At 1:15 pm a man tried to climb the wire fence, he fell straight down with cuts and bruises.

Today was a boiling 39 degrees mum stayed asleep for the whole afternoon. But i think i have found a clue to get out. A small sign saying” this way for freedom”.
For our workshop we did finding percentages in a catalouge. We had to find 10%, 20%, 25% and 70% of prices in a catalouge. To work out 70% all you have to do is divid it by how much it was then you multiply by 7 and thats how much you save. Then it is just the same with the other percentages but by how much they are. On our catoulouge we have 4 items on each page and a different percentage. We have learnt how to work out percentages in a catalouge. We also learnt how to findhow much we saved by useing percentages.
This week I have been tiring to choose difficult spelling words for my writing. In maths I have been working on maps, changing fractions into decimals. Also we have been adding, multiplying and subtracting fractions. In literacy I we have watched a movie called RECK IT RALF and we hard to do a story graph on it. We wrote down the 6 main points of the movie and scenes where some of the characters show resilience.
When I did the footprint challenge the results were that I would take up 2 earths. Because don’t catch much public transport. I also have a big family so it meant we had a lot of food. But the good things were I don’t fly much so that cut down a little bit and I don’t have many electronics. My house is two stories but I don’t live on a big block of land. Another bad thing was we don’t have any solar panels so we have to use electricity. I walk a lot to school and to other places. That’s my global footprint.
At the soccer
The crowd goes wild
it is too intense to even sit still
the socceroos smashed Jordan 4-0
everyone was cheering and chanting
at the soccer
While it rained
I sat in my room
not knowing what to do
I played my ipad
and ate some food
while it rained
before I shut the door
I saw something weird
it was an ice cream with a beard
it had arms and legs
and a shiny rubber band
that’s what I saw
before I shut the door.
Taking a penalty
the crowd went silent
it was all up to me
I had to score
because I was
taking a penalty
At home I have been reading for 45 minutes every night and I am really enjoying it. My favourite book series is the extreme adventures I have reed all 12 of them and I hope there is still more to com. At school I am reading conspiracy 365 and It is a perfect Good fit book for me. In literacy I have been working on narratives and recounts. The latest one i have just published was a recount of a soccer match. In big idea I am investigating and researching about aeronocustics. I thinI I need to improve on reading a bit longer and try to change types of writing I do.
