basketball


Hey, do you know how to play basketball?
Well for the past eight week’s room 8’s math class has been going to basketball and learning skills.The skills we learnt was jump stop, how to shoot the ball behind our head’s, defending, and of course shooting.

As I was shooting the ball, I could hear my team cheering me on. As I was running, sweat was trickling down my face.As I was running i felt  my heart pounding.

Some of the skills we learnt were the bongo drums if you don’t know what they are you have to bend down and bounce the ball with two hands like your drumming bongo drums. Then  we played a game with coach Vinnie, the game is called golden child. The V dribble is a skill that’s pretty easy to learn that’s why i like it.  If you want to learn some of these skill try your best?

How to play basketball?If you want to play basketball all you will need is a ball, hoops, a coach to teach you only if you don’t know how to play and you'll need people to play with you.

Here are some skills that we have learnt so far the bongo drums, no blocking, bouncing the ball, rolling  the ball, feet n knees, arms,
golden child,games, pivot, over head pass and the V dribble.   


I really enjoyed basketball because it is awesome. I really liked the coaches.I hope i can learn more and more about basketball and i really really want to learn more skills to be better then my friends.

Solve number problems with fractions.

today we are learning to  Solve number problems with fractions.


1. Problem One:
   2/3's  of  78 = 52 
   1/3 of 78 = 26

2. Problem Two
    1/4  of  232  = 58
     4 x 58 = 232  
I worked this out by splitting 200 and 32
1/4 of 200=50
1/4 of 32=8

kutia

WALT: find and learn meanings of unknown vocabulary.

blindfold game

Wow you will never guess what room 8’s literacy class did? Well we played the blindfold game that involved rice, bowls, six paper and 20 safety pins that were in the bowl filled with rice you really should play it.

I was nervous when we first started that’s why i was waiting patiently for my turn.People where just taking the whole rice out also you're not meant to get help from your friend or someone next to you but they still helped


How to play?
You have to have six papers, six bowls, rice 20 safety pins and of course six blind folders also you have to have six kids to play only if they want to play.You have to try and get as many safety pins as you can and if you cheat you're out of the game also never take of your blind folder. If you get more than fifteen safety pins you might win a prize from miss lavakula only if your in her Literacy Class.


The first kids are Andrew Jonathon Machelle Tavake Montel and Alex. Andrew got the most out of all of them and my friend said that her funny part was when I put the whole rice out. I thought that it was pretty funny too. When it was my turn I decided to go for the bowl that had the most pins and when the timer started I put my hand on the bowl and started digging through the rice and i pulled out only 10 but when but when the timer was about to finish I grabbed one but I lost it when I was going to put it on to the paper.


Hey did you know that the game we were playing was amazing. I hope that you will find the game easier than i thought it was. I felt like i was in a dark cave and i was blind because it was pitch black.It is like the game called the chocolate game but we had to get dressed and cut the chocolate.


My favorite part was when my friend machelle scooped a handful of rice and dropped it on the piece of paper, that what most of my friend would of done so they can get more pin but they got more rice instead. Once the game finished the winner was Andrew and Flynlay
Blindfold

problem solving

WALT: solve multiplication and division number problems using more than one strategy




1. 12 divided by 2 = 6                                               19 divided by 2 = 18 r 1
    2 x 6 = 12                                                              2 x 9 = 18 + 1 = 19
                                                                             
2  30 divided by 6 = 5                                               32 divided by 6 = 5 r 2
    5 x 3 =30                                                               5 x 6 = 30 + 2 = 32

                                                                                  25 divided by 3 = 8 r 1                                                                                                                                  8 x 3 = 24 + 1 = 25  3. 24 divided by 3 = 6
    6 x 3 =24

4. 20 divided by 4 = 8

5. 20 divided by 4 = 8
   8 x 4 = 20

6. 35 divided by 5 = 7
   7 x 5 = 35
