AIMS || 7's boys go for GOLD!

In this weeks literacy we had an activity which had to do with the article about out 7's boys taking out 1st place in the AIMS games. We had to read the article and answer the questions with what we thought was right and wrong about what the author had written about our school. 

Manaiakalani Film festival experience

During this week Room 3 got the chance to start filming our movie for the Manaiakalani Film festival. A annual event which takes place at the cinemas showing movies that have been created from all the schools around Glenn Innes and Panmure. Here is what I thought about the experience filming Room 3's movie this year movie gave. 

Something I enjoyed was seeing everyone acting humorous, changing the tones of their voice and also the different ways we all dressed. It made the movie more interesting and also made it look like we were all real actors. 

The most challenging bit was remembering our lines and also trying to keep a straight face every time the camera was really close to our faces. Sometimes it would take over 7 goes to film one scene just because we forgot our lines. We would even laugh when the camera was pointed towards our direction making it harder to concentrate.    

If i was to film again something I would do better is dress up but wear something that would suit the topic of the film. This year I think I could've done way better with dressing up in the correct clothes. I would also take time to practice way more of my lines so that when it's time to film we can just get it over and done with. 

Being in another movie I have no ideas that I think would work but overall filming this years movie was a great experience. Being a year 8 this is my last Film festival movie so something that I learnt is to make the most of the time you have in intermediate.

During the past 2 weeks we've been focusing on Ratio and proportion word problems. We had to show the way we worked it out. Something I think i need to work on is finding more simple ways to work these word problems out. Go through my presentation to and see what we've been learning in room 5 Maths.

Multiplication Pyramid

In today's maths class we did a short warm up which taught me how to multiply big numbers. First we start with the bottom row making our way up, the numbers also get bigger. Something I need to work on is knowing my timestables without using the calculator.

Word Problems

In todays maths class we early finishers had to complete a Word problems presentation. Most of the questions I used addition to work out but some were subtraction. Somethings I need to do better is working out the problems and making them even more simple. Go through my presentation to see the word problems I solved with my buddy.

Reflecting Shapes

WALT: Rotate, Reflect and Translate shapes.

In this maths class we took a 10 question quiz about reflecting shapes. We had to answer the questions and then see what we got out of 10 my score was 4. These 2 screenshots show the 2 questions I found the easiest and the hardest. We worked on learning how to rotate clockwise and anti-clockwise and then we moved on to degrees. One thing to work on for reflecting shapes would be to look at shapes from more than one direction.
