Connectives and adverbial clauses


I can make links across texts by recognising connectives or adverbial clauses

In this unit learnt about connectives and adverbial clauses

Connectives are words that are used to join sentences together.

An adverbial clause gives us additional information about e.g. the time, place, or action which is described in the rest of the sentence.

Square numbers to 100 and their matching square roots

In Maths we have been learning : Square numbers to 100 and their matching square roots.
This is part of our Number Knowledge.
It is important to just know these as we can use this knowledge in other areas of maths.


Here are the IXL screenshots that show evidence of my learning.  


Here is an image of my Square Root Chart that can be found in my Maths book.


My next  step in Maths is : to use this new knowledge to help me solve problems in a variety of other areas of Maths.

Key Leadership Role #3



This week in the library, one of the other student librarians asked me, If we could switch days because she had band practice, so I said sure and we swapped. On Wednesday I went to the Library and put the books away, but it wasn't very busy so I didn't issue many books,  only return them. I also had to close the library ten minutes early because Mrs Ward had to help in the office because one of the office ladys wasn't there that day, I have shown the CARE values Excellence and Community, I also showed the leadership trait trustworthy because the other librarian could trust me that I would swap days with her.

Showing Leadership #3


This week it was the kauri cross country, It was held at westlake park,  we had to run around about 2 1/2 km, I was proud of myself even though I didn't come first, second or third but I did come 4th which I thought was a great effort. I was also glad that I didn't get disqualified because I heard that there was some boys that weren't trying there best and walking.

Showing Leadership #2


A way I have shown leadership in another area of the school is, by picking up some rubbish because  me and my friend didn't see much rubbish in the house colour bins when we looked, so we decided to pick up some rubbish, we ended up picking up around 1 1/2 hand fulls of rubbish, so then we put it into our house colour bins my friend is in miro and I am in Rata, the CARE values that we have shown are Community, We also showed the leadership trait Active Thinking because we saw that not many people were doing the activity so we contributed. 

Key Leadership Role #2

This week in the library, me and my partner could not do our duty because Mrs Ward was on a coarse, but it was lucky because one of the junior classes needed some help scanning some books so I volunteered and got to help, I had a little trouble getting into the computer though,  because I had to sign in but someone else was already signed in, but I got it sorted in the end, I have shown the CARE values excellence and active thinking, I also showed the leadership trait resilience because I didn't give up.

Home Learning Challenge #2

Showing Leadership #1

This week I have shown leadership several times around the school. One of those times was during the week I kept forgetting to do my home learning challenge and leadership blogging, so I managed to make some time in the weekend to do it. The home learning challenge that I did was A.10 Explore the cubism painting style, create your own Picasso inspired artwork and do my blog posts of participating fully in my key leadership role and also showing leadership in other areas of the school. I have shown the CARE values Excellence and Active Thinking, I have also shown the leadership trait goal focused because I knew that I had to get something done so I did it.


Key Leadership Role #1

This week I have participated fully in my key leadership role as a librarian. By helping on my my set date (Tuesday) and also later in the week when I could see that Ashley's partner was absent, so I offered to help her. She seemed relieved that she didn't have to do the job on her own, so I helped put the books away and in the second half of lunch it was my turn to scan the books. But we had one problem, we discovered that Annabelle still had her books in her book box, that was a problem because she no longer goes to our school but Mrs Ward said she will call Annabelles mum. I look forward to next Tuesday when I can do it again, I have shown the CARE values Active Thinking and Community, I have also shown the leadership trait Active Thinking because we realised that there was a problem so we found a solution.

Home Learning Challenge #1



A.10 Explore the cubism painting style, create your own Picasso inspired artwork

Cubism is a style of painting that originated with Georges Braque and Pablo Picasso between 1907 and 1914. The Cubist style sought to show the two-dimensional nature of the canvas. Cubist artists fractured their objects into geometric forms and used multiple and contrasting perspectives in a single painting.

Term 1 Book Review

Image result for a hot or cold summer 

This is one on my free choice books for the forty book challenge, this is a pick a path story which means you get choices of what you want her to do,  it's about a girl who has a mum and a dad who are divorced, and it's the school holidays and she gets the choice to go on a holiday with her mum to London, or on a beach holiday with her dad and his girlfriend and her girlfriend child Ellie.  In my opinion this is a really good book, if you want to know more you will have to read the book.

Key Leadership Role #5

The fifth and final way I have shown leadership throughout my key leadership role is by being patient with people. Because some people don't understand that they can only get out a certain amount of books at a time and they can only reserve one book at a time and this means that you have to explain this to them. But that is all part of being a librarian and I can't wait until next Tuesday. I have shown the CARE values Respect and Active Thinking.
