I am thankful that I come to school.
I am thankful for my clothes.
I am thankful for food that I eat everyday.

I can show how to be thankful for coming to school by working hard and finishing my work in time. Also by giving some of my clothes to my family at Tonga or people that I know.

I can show that I am thankful by saying thank you to my mum and dad buying food for me and my brothers to eat.

Alex Fala's Visit

On Thursday 20th of June we had a visitor that came over to talk about how he became successful and what we can do when we grow up to be successful.

His name is Alex Fala and he is half Samoan. He lived in Wellington when he was still a young boy with his family. When he was still at primary school his mum and dad split up. As the years went on Alex was forced to go to Auckland to find a job and also go to university. After a few years he found a job that he really liked. At Alex’s job he gets to travel to lots of country and get to study there. One of Alex's favorite country is Italy because he thinks it is really amazing.   

After that Alex told us some keys how to become successful. First you have to study hard and say no to your mates if they want you to do some bad. Next you have to concentrate on what you are studying about and finish work in time.

Next when Alex finished talking to us we started to ask him some questions. Like what is your favorite thing, who inspired you and a whole lot of other things.

At the end we had a photo together with Alex and then we had to go home.

Jonny Wartman Visit

Make your own slideshow at Animoto.

On Tuesday 18th of June we had a visitor that came in to room six. He came to talk about how he became a graffiti artist.  

His name is Jonny Wartman and he was raised in Christchurch. His favorite thing that he liked to do when he was young was drawing pictures. As Jonny grew older he wanted to be a graffiti artist.

After that he told us some of his stories like how he became a graffiti artist and who inspires him also what was his favorite thing. One of his favorite countries is New Zealand because he likes  travelling around the world. Not like the other country’s if you want to travel somewhere you can just drive there. When he finished talking we asked some questions about him.

Next up we all went outside and he showed us some of his graffiti art. Before he even started he said to us “what kind of picture do you guys want me to draw”. So we have to come up with something that we all agree with. The class all agreed that he should draw a sunrise. Then he asked us if we can move back because the spray can is too strong. Next up he explained to us about the spray can like what is in it and how can you use it and how many second or minute does it takes to dry up also lots of other things. When he finished explaining it to us he started to draw the picture. First he started off with the sky and then the clouds. After that he drew the beach then the sand and the flowers and all the other things that he can think off. When he was almost finished we all clapped but he said “No it’s not finished yet” so we had to stop clapping. A few minutes later room seven was coming out of their classroom but some of them just stay and watch from the window. When he finally finish we all clapped and I can hear people saying “Jack it’s cool man I want to be like him”.  After that room seven left into their classroom and carried on with their work while room six was taking photo with Jonny. When we came back to the class it was time to go home so we have to get out bags and go home.

Maths Strategy

This week the strategy I have learned is place vlaue and compensation. 
Here is one of my equation that I haven't worked out (8x29=). 
Let's use place value to work this stategy out and then we’ll use compensation. 
First you times 8 to a tidy number in the stategy which is 20 then you plus 8 times 9. After that you add them all together and you will get the answer and the answer is 232. Here do it like this.
(8x20=160)+(8x9=72) then add them all together and the answer is 232.  

Next strategy we can use is competsation. 
First you times 8 to a tidy number which is 30. Then take away 8 times 1. When you finish you add them up and the answer is there.
Here like this.
8x30=240 take away 8x1=232
