Food Graphs

In Inquiry, we learnt about the 5 food groups which are vegetable, fruit, grains, protein and dairy. Me and Lila did a DLO to show what we learnt about it. Something I found interesting was broccoli has more vitamins than meat.

Ponamu ponamu

In Reading one task we have been doing is visualising.  When you visualise, you have to read the text and make a mental picture of what you have read.  We read the book Pounamu Pounamu by Witi Ihimaera.  After we read the book we had to draw a picture in the story.  The funny part I heard in the book is that Granny has one eye on the cards and her other eye rolls around and looks at Miss Heta’s cards. 

Flow chart

In Writing we have been learning about procedural texts.  I chose to write about how to make an egg  Mcmuffin.  Using my writing, I made a flowchart and the shapes I used were oval, diamond and square. Flowcharts can help to make a process easier to understand.  The interesting part about making a McMuffin is that you have to fry it 3 times.

Split Strategy

In Maths we have been learning split strategy.  When you use split strategy, you split the question and the number has to be 3 digits or 2 digits.  The most interesting part about split strategy is that you can learn by mistakes.

Basketball lists.

Today my class did some lists of some sports people eat and what they cant do in the game and the sport I chose was basketball because I play basketball at home. The best food for basketball players to eat is fruits, vegetables, bread, pasta, and rice.
