My Tiny House

Kia Ora bloggers! before I start with what I have done thank you for coming on my blog!
In Rimu we have been making a tiny house for maths, you could work with a buddy or by yourself I worked with my friend Abby, I have reflected on how it turned out and have taken lots of photos.

This is a photo of my Rough draft which was my favorite part overall.

These are the area and perimeter of the base, walls, and roof. we also had to do the area and perimeter of the tiny furniture.

The outside of my tiny house, this is the outside of my tiny house.

This is a picture of us working on mine and Abby's tiny house, it was very challenging gluing down the walls and furniture to the base.

This is my final version of our tiny house, it was very rewarding to see the final product and draw the final touches. I really enjoyed making tiny houses.

My reflection, this is what I think of the standard and quality of my work and what I found challenging.
  to clear up what I said in these pictures I said what I found challenging. What I found challenging was sticking the tiny furniture   down to the base and doing the same with the walls I really enjoyed making my rough draft and talking about it and what we are going to next with my friend Abby, the photo on the bottom is  how I  think I did with my slide and my tiny house.

Area and Perimeter, to involve making tiny houses with maths we had to do area and perimeter to do that you need to count and add and use your knowledge timetables.
Area:  to do area you need to use times table, Esample: for an exsample I will use a  couch it has 4 squares on the top and bottem and 2 squares on the right and left side so you have to times 4 and 2, 4 x 2 = 8 so the area is 8!
Perimeter: to do perimeter you have to use addition for an example I will use a couch again, so again there is 4 squares on the top and bottom and 2 squares on the left and right side, so you have to add 4+4+2+2, 4+4+2+2 = 12 so 12 is the perimeter!

Thank you again for coming on my blog feel free to give me some feedback in the comments below.

The Hoatzin

Kia Ora thank you all for coming on to my blog and for reading my post! in RImu ( my class ) we have been learning a lot about Birds, this week I have been learning about Hoatzin's ( pronounced watzen ).

The Hoatzin is an amazing mystical bird which is very magical it looks like something you would see in Alice in Wonderland.

The baby Hoatzins have an amazing way to escape danger like if one of their many predators try to attack company it is a tree snake, they are all born with sharp claws on their wings so the jump down into the water and swim to land the wait for the tree snake to leave.

this is the Hoatzin I made on google slides, Hoatzins are also known as the Reptile-bird, Skunk bird, or Canje Phessent.

Please feel free to comment and give me feedback and tell me what you think about the Hoatzin bird, I would love to read them, thank you all for coming on my blog thank you again, Maddison

Dart Bord Investgation

In Rimu we have been doing the dartboard investigation.

This is Hanas dartboard she only has 3 darts so you have to make all of the answers which are how many sores she can get with 3 darts to an example would be 9 + 5 + 2 = 16 another example is 9 + 9 + 9 = 27 so on and so forth, once you have done that you move on to Henri's board which you have to find three numbers that can add up to all of the numbers I got 3, 5, and 10.

This is my work.

I really liked the dartboard investigation, my favourite part was making the number combinations, the thing I found most challenging was creating henries board because it took a long time and was confusing in some parts.

My Reflection For Term 2

What Worked Well For Me: This term I think that I did really
well in my writing, we did Newspaper reports and I think I did a
really good job on it, one of my reports was the world's biggest potato.
I also did maths whizz every day this past few weeks not the whole term
though. I also finished all of my work all of this term and have gotten all
of my reward time, sometimes I had to do it at home to get it up to the best
standard but I still worked on it a lot at school, and I like doing homework
. I also think that I have done well in my maths I have learned all the angles
and how to do line angles.

What am I proud of: I am proud of my digi awards, Because
the last few years of digi awards me and Abby haven't done the
best job and always tried to have more but this year we spent a
long time just working on a few and all of them are really good standard
, in my opinion, I also think that I have learnt a lot of computer tricks like
ctrl x, ctrl m,  ctrl d. I think that is why I have done a better job on Digi awards this year
than last Year. Link To My Digi awards

How Have I shown my YMS hero Qualities: I think I showed my YMS
hero qualities when I do all of my work and know exactly what to do
when and where, and I am always in the right place in the right time but
I do sometimes listen to music. I also think that I can manage myself when I
know what to do.

What hasn't gone well for me: I think that I have done everything
really well but there is always room for improvement, I think I need to
work harder on my Tuhi Mai Tuhi Tu, I still think that I do, do a good job but
I think I can improve them a bit more and use more thoughtful in the positive,
thoughtful helpful. I also think that I do, do stander comments but not the best standard that I can do.

What has challenged me: I have been challenged with
my blog post I have been doing not the best blog post but I think that
I am getting better and now I am writing at least a
the paragraph, as well as teaching and the work, is self, I have worked through t
he challenges by asking for help and learning a bit more
about what a good blog post needs. I have also been challenged
by my maths like how to do angles and volume. I have worked through that
challenged by doing it at home and getting my dad to explain it to me and how to do it,
I have also watched some videos but I find it easier for someone to show me how to do it the telling me.

What am I going to work on next term: I am going to work
on keeping my drive clean, so then it will be easier to find everything
and it will make it look nice and it will be helpful if I need to find something in a hurry.
