Sport With Sha








WALT: Shoot a ball correctly
My comment:
The most challenging thing was keeping my arm straight and pointing them at the hoop.
My next steps will be practicing going in for my rebound faster because I wait to see if the shot goes in. But I think I have a good technique to shoot.

Maths Problem Solving


WALT:  Apply a suitable strategy to solve a problem.

We were focusing on underlining the question and finding the important things for the problem.

Description: In maths I have been working on problem solving using think tanks and we have been learning how to be successful problem solvers.

320+40+80+160= 600
Because 20+40=60 so thats 360+80=440 so then we add the 60 so thats 500 then + the 100 that = 600.
To work this out I rounded the tens in my head. 
My comment: I think that I have improved my problem solving and if I take my time and find the best way to solve problems.

Buddy comment: I think Grace is a very quick problem solver and she always gets the answer straight away at the start By Laken.

I thought to myself is my smile on "CHECK" am I looking up and doing the right actions "CHECK" perfect. I put all of my energy into my performance.When I was dancing my skirt was flicking side to side my hands were moving and grooving It was the perfect dance. Jacqui agreed and said the hand jive looked the best. 
Then there is a second black out, Oh what it's over all ready but it was so fun man that went fast but we all had a ball.
