Operations using fractions, percentages, decimals and integers.

In Maths we have been learning to: Understand operations using fractions, percentages, decimals and integers.


Here is some evidence of my learning.


Here are screenshots for all 6 IXL activities that I have completed.


Extended Abstract assessment task answer sheet and the activity sheet.


Something that challenged me during this unit of learning was Solve percentage problems where the percentage is unknown because it took me longer to figure out how to do it and complete it./

My next step is to continue to apply these strategies to real life/ problem solving situations.

Reading - Evaluate Texts

In reading we have been learning to….make decisions about the usefulness of the text for purpose, by using a variety of criteria to evaluate.


Here is a link to our online modelling book


We have been evaluating texts against the following four criteria:
  1. Readability
  2. Accuracy
  3. Relevance
  4. Status


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 and evaluate texts as I read them, checking for readability, accuracy, relevance and quality of language/ information

Key Leadership role Distinction #3

On Wednesday the heads and deputys went to student council and everyone else who got voted to be there classes representives. The meeting took place at 12:35 in the hall foyer set up in a circle with chairs.
We started off by Anneke calling out each class to see if they were here.
Next we talked about an ice cream day that we are planning.
Then Mrs Trotter asked if we had the prices of the ice creams and asked if the year 4 and 5 students had made posters to say that there was an ice cream day happening and if the year 6's had made order forms for the ice cream day.
That was basically all we talked about until it was 12:50 which is when student council finishes.

I showed respect by contributing to the group discussion positively.

I was also being trustworthy by showing up on time and not being late.
