Technology Distinction #2

On Thursday the year 7/8's travel on a bus to get to lincoln primary school to have technology.
I am in science now at the start we were talking about the prerodic table and we got to chose one element and Sophie chose copper which is Cu on the prerodic table and we watched a video on it.
Then we were learning about a fair testing.
After that we tested 6 different brands of gum aqnd we timed how long the flavour lasted and the maximum was 5 minutes.
Next we drew a grah on the times that they lasted and the spearmint, bubblemint and airwaves lasted the longest amount of time.
Then once we haad finished we could carry on with our word find.

I showed active thinking by making sure I started the timer at the same time I put the gum in.


I was also showing integrity by being fair when testing by chewing at the same speed for all of them.

Technology Distinction #1

On Thursday the year 7/8's travel on a bus to get to lincoln primary school to have technology.
It was a new pentad so I am in science now at the start we were talking about the prerodic table and how it got made.
Next he showed us some beads and had a flast and the beads were in the flast and he puled on it and they went up and didn't touch the flast until they were all out.
Then we work on our title page for our books on mine I wrote science 2017 and then I drew so bottles, a volcano and a rocket.
After that we watched some videos on different things on the pereodic table and then we learned about adtoms and how big they were.

I showed respect by not talking while the teacher was talking.


I also was being an active thinker by asking questions when I didn't know something.

WALT: Reason with linear proportions.

I have been learning 3 WALTS

1.National Standard 1: Combine simple proportions to work out what parts the whole is made up in a unit of 10 like 3 yellow with 7 blue, 5 yellow with 5 blue, 4 yellow with 6 blue.
Say what the fraction and percentage of each stack is for yellow and blue.

2.National Standard 2: - Combine proportions to work out what parts the whole is made up of using non-multiple of 10 like 8 yellow:5 blue:4 white with 11 yellow:11 blue:11 white (19:16:15 and 38%:32%:30%)

3. National Standard 3: - Order fractions with unlike denominators by finding a common denominator

My evidence: Assessment task

My next step is: Geomotry maths test.

Reading - Text Composition


In reading we have been learning to….
recognise the way words, sentences and paragraphs are put together (eg sentences that express cause and effect) and use this knowledge to understand complicated texts.


These documents show evidence of my learning during this unit:
(link your own learning for each of these activities. Please make sure your sharing settings are open)

My Next Step: Is to continue to apply this new knowledge of parts of texts, to help me make sense of increasingly complicated text types.

City Council Trip Excellence #10

Today the student leaders went to the ccc (Christchurch city council) to learn about what they actually do in our neighborhoods and to the parks and the buildings they own. Firstly There was a lady showing  us what the satche outside meant and the river. Secondly we went into the function room which is just a big room with chairs that we could sit on. Then the lady who was showing us around showed us this slide show she must have made up and it had stuff about how much water they use per day how many bins they collect from houses and stuff like that so we could see how busy they actually are. After that we meet up with someone who worked at the ccc in groups of three. I was with Anneke and Maddy and we got to chose our groups whic was good. We meet up with a guy called Daniel, he worked in costumer sevice which means he looks after people complants they have we also learnt about a app called snap, send, solve which is when you are unhappy with something such as a pot hole you take a photo and send it to the council and they will reply with what they are going to do about it. Next we then did an activity where you had a subject and some of them were...Event planning, Park designing, and Grafitti. Anneke, Maddy and I had grafitti and we had a budget of $860,000 and we spent way under beacause we didn't know what to hae more of, so we had to find ways of cleaning and getting rid of grafiti. Then we went out for lunch. After that we got the bus and went back to school.

I showed respect by listening to the Celia when she was sharing.


I showed leadership by representing Oaklands school positively in the streets.

Cross Country Excellence #9

On Friday I went to the south west zones cross county with the other people that came 1st 2nd or 3rd in the cross country for school in their event.
In the school cross country I came 1st and that means I go to zones. We had to be at school before 8:30 on Friday so we could get to the event on time and sort out where we are sitting and things like that. I kept getting more nervous as the races went on and throughout all the year groups. Finally our race came and we had to take off all our jackets, it was freezing.
We then lined up on the starting line and the horn went off. We were racing. I got puffed straight away so I was wondering if I could finish the whole race in a running pace. The race was 3km. I was so relieved went I crossed the finish line. Overall I came 7th as I found out on the sheet. Which means I get to go to Canturburys and represent Oaklands school for it!


I showed excellence by participating in the zones


I showed leadership by representing my school positively.
