Student Summit Preparation 2018

For the past two weeks a part of our class have been preparing for an event called 'Student Summit'. We will be meeting at Hornby High School, and presenting online websites and showing people how to use them. There are any different people teaching different things, and I am the leader of the 'PiktoChart DLO Group'. We are teaching people how to make blogs exciting with PiktoChart, and we have prepared a whole slideshow presentation to present at the event. I can't show you the slideshow yet, because the Student Summit hasn't happened yet! After tomorrow (when the Student Summit is on), I will be able to show pictures of the event, and the slideshow. Comment if you went or a going to Student Summit! Thanks!

A l g e b r a - Maths!

Today I learned more about algebra and worked out algebra math problems. I learned that if a letter was next to a number, it means to multiply it. I worked out worded problems and average equations.
Here is an example of an algebra problem to give you an idea of what it looks like. Have you learned about algebra yet? Comment below if you think I should improve anything within my post. Thanks!

YMS Speech Competition!

On Wednesday, we had our school speech comp, and I placed third.
We prepared our speeches for 4 weeks, reviewing videos, researching, and testing. We worked on iSPACE, and we worked on correct punctuation and punctuation. It took a while for our whole class to research different speeches, but in the end, we improved.

Here is my speech, it is about how suicide should be prevented.

I got lost during orienteering...

On Wednesday we went to spencer park, and did teamwork activities for the William Pike Challenge.
We arrived at spencer park, with Rangi Ruru Girl's school. My favourite activity was when all of my group had pipes and we had to get a marble across the field. Later on we had to pick partners to go orienteering with and I went with my friend Jedi, and then Jacob joined our group. We read the map wrong a detoured from the group - the instructor had to run around the forest to come and get us, which I found pretty funny. Overall I had a good time and I hope we get to do something like this again.
The photo below is a group photo with the Year 7/8s of my school and the Year 8's of Rangi Ruru.

The 'Hoatzin'

This week my reading group and I have been studying one of the birds of the Amazon named the 'Hoatzin', (Pronounced 'Hot zin'.) and one of my tasks was to do/create something on what I read about this bird. I chose to create a DLO based on what I read, and I found it hard to match a good color background with the pictures I included. If there is anything I can add or improve my DLO please let me know in the comments. Thanks, Happy Blogging!

Algebra - Maths :)

Maths! This week we have been doing revisions with our maths and one of the things we did was algebra. Firstly I found the equations really easy but they started to get hard. I tried by best to complete my work this week. I chose to do a DLO on algebra to teach you guys how to do it. I hope you learn something from this DLO, it is below.

Term 2 Reflection

Hi guys, today for our school, it is the very last day of Term 2 and because of this all of our class did an 'End of Term Reflection'. I talked about how I found some parts of the term difficult and how I improved. For this we had to write at least 200 words, and I found this hard because at first I thought we just had to write a couple of sentences.

If you would like to see my reflection click the link below:
