Maths Maintenance

WALT: Multiply or divide a number by 10, 100 and 1,000 to solve problems.

Example: Whats 130 x 100 = ???

Well all you do is keep the number you had then  you add the zero's from 100 and then you have your answer it is 13,000

But if it is a decimal point like 0.8 you take away the decimal point and you also put the 0 in front and that makes it into a hole number like 80 and thats your answer. 

But if its a problem like 1.58 all you do is take away the decimal point.

Fox Writing

WALT: Write to infer meaning
Purpose: to place one of the characters in a new context  and writing an anecdote about them.

- something they do (actions)
- something they say (words)
- infer what the character is like from the clues given.

My comment:
I think I used actions words well to add detailed I think I left clues for the reader to infer.

Fox writing.
As Magpie waddled in disgrace thinking how could she trust that iniquitous fox. Suddenly Magpie stopped to take a seat on the scorching rock, hearing the sun sizzle on her broken shredded wing. Then the a thought pops into her mind she thinks of riding on dogs soft golden skin dashing through the forest with wind blowing in her face she really missed dog. Then suddenly there is a husky cry fading through the air of the words “Magpie where are you”? Footsteps get closer and closer then..... Dog and Magpie meet in forgiveness.

Integrity Advert

WALT: Demonstrate the value of Integrity (ngakau tapatahi)


  • The advert shows the audience what integrity looks like
  • The example realistically shows integrity in action
  • People of all ages can easily relate to the message
  • People who watch the Ad feel inspired to ‘live with integrity’
Technical Skills
  • Storyboard/planning is detailed
  • Camera angles help to communicate the message
  • Camera is steady
  • Dialogue/talking is clear
  • Editing includes titles etc
  • Background music/sound effects add to the message

My comment: I think I demonstrated what integrity looks like and our movie relates to what our message is. And I think my use of sound effects adds the spice to the movie. I think I could work on using different camera angles to help get a different effect. I think I am a on the  second ring of the target.
