Bar Graph vs Line Graph

Bar Graph: A bar graph is a chart that uses bars to show comparisons between different categories of data.

Line Graph: A graph that uses points connected by lines to show how something changes in value (as time goes by, or as something else happens). Based on one set data.

Below is a list of different types of graphs.  Cut and paste them into the column you think they belong in.

Eating fractions of pie, pizza and cake
This task is about adding and subtracting fractions.
a) Petra ate two-fifths (2/5 ) of a pizza and Sarah ate one-fifth (1/5 ).  Show how to work out how much pizza they ate altogether.
Answer: 3 2+1=3 so 3
b) Lima and Paul each had the same sized cake.  Lima ate four-fifths (4/5 ) of his cake and Paul ate three-fifths ( ) of his cake.  Show how to work out how much cake they ate altogether.
⅘ + ⅕  = 1 whole + 2 more ⅕ = 1 hole and ⅖
Answer: 1 hole and ⅖
c) Bill ate one-fifth (1/5) of a whole apple pie.  Show how to work out how much pie was left.
So the pie is cut into 5 bit’s and Bill feast’s on 1 of those 5 bit’s so the question is 5 - 1 = 4 so the answer is 4
                                                                                                           Answer: 4
d) Andrew started with one and a half pizzas (1 1/2 ) and ate three-quarters (3/4 ) of a whole pizza.  Show how to work out how much pizza is left.
So there is a whole pizza and Andrew eats ¾ of it so the whole pizza in quarters is 4 so 4 - 3= 1 quarter
Answer:1 quarter

Martatiki workshop (weaving)

On Tuesday the 17th of June we did some activities.  There were three activities to chose from and I chose Rukau,weaving and fitness.  They  were  all different we got to chose out of some others too but I chose these your limit was three.  I am going to talk about weaving which was one of  my ones from my list.

Weaving was the hardest thing that I had to do.  We had to be paired up with a buddy I was paired up with Josh from room 11 ( I am from room 10 and my name is curtis.)My favorite one is Rakau because we got to teach the teachers that were trying to teach us the song when half of us already knew it.

Fitness was the last thing that I did and It was full of games.  (But obviously included with  fitness.)  We played this game that was when we had to grab any type of ball and throw it in the air and our buddy had to catch it.   My buddy was Laim also from room 11.  It was about when the god of the sea threw his eyes out into the sky and we played heaps of other games and  I got muddy.  But after a while we had to go back to class.

Kapha Haka Day Letter

Dear Mr Gifkins,

I am writing to you to tell you how much I appreciated Kapa Haka. It was an incredible learning experience for the students and for me. I think we need to something like it every year.

I hope you agree with me because everyone LOVED it so they hope you for the best of luck to vote for another kapa haka day.  Maybe some people wasn’t interested but now that they saw the performance they might see how it actually worked and now chooses now that they want to be in it.  Also with the people that liked it they could be better at it next time and they could maybe teach the new people.

So when they teach them they can learn to be better next year.  They can learn the songs and then next year when the new people are still learning they can help them by singing a little louder than they did last time for the little one’s because they are still learning.  

I hope you understand Because that was EPIC with the kapa haka going this year.
