Word Problems

WALT - Use 2 different strategies to solve word problems



TASK: My task was to find out the equation for each problem and show my working out on the next slide. For example, Lucy's mum gave her $20 to buy some food for her two dogs: (Blue and Roxy) When Lucy got to the shops the shop keepers there said that everything was half price. If Lucy got $15 change, How much change would Lucy get if she brought the dogs food for the full price?

AIM for success.

Today Pt England School had an unexpected encounter. The name of that person was Mr Andrew Patterson, he came to our school to talk about the year 8's future but the year 7 had to tun in and listen too because this talk was going to happen to them next year.



The first thing that I remember that Mr Patterson was talking about was that time don't slow down for anyone, and you should make the most of your time before you pass on. There was something that Mr Patterson said "My friend counts and reminds himself of how many days he has left." I also have a saying of my own, treat every day of your life like it your last and enjoy the most of it.

Word Problems - Adding and Subtracting.

WALT -  find an appropriate strategy to solve each word problem


TASK: This week I learned how to use different strategies to solve addition and subtraction word problems, so that I'm ready for testing week. My personal think is that stage 7 is hard to understand if you don't know how to work the problems out, I also think that it's challenging for your brain to get around the strategies that the problems are trying to teach.

There are different types of plants in the world.

WALT -  Find evidence in a text Use the process of elimination to find the 'best fit' answer.



TASK: Today my group and I learned about carnivorous plants. Carnivorous plants are way different from ordinary plants, instead of getting there nutrients from the sun, soil, and water they get there's from bugs and beetles. After reading about carnivorous plants I had to fill in all the answers that were on the question sheet, I thought it was pretty easy considering how I just learned about carnivorous plants.

Musical Madness

This term's theme is MUSICAL MADNESS, And I can't wait to learn all about emotional music because this will be my last term at Pt England School before I move onto college, so I'll try my hardest before I rock it out.

The teachers from team 3 made me laugh, as well as all people of many ages. When they started lip sinking to the songs and putting some action to it, it felt like they were telling a story through movement. I think the teachers were trying to keep in mind that It has to be something with MUSICAL MADNESS and to make everybody laugh their guts out. 


Singing in the CAR? That sounds a bit weird, isn't it supposed to be singing in the shower? The teachers from team 4's made a video about carpool karaoke, they switch seats and played random music but when they started to sing and dance it looked like the teachers were going to break the car.


Finally, we've come to an end and it's time to tell you about the family full of teachers from term 5. It's a Friday night and the Mother, Father and there three adopted darters were all getting ready for the family movie night. The family was watching the lion king at first but as the movie played on the music changed, they showed different emotions just by listening to the music. When the movie was over, the family showed different expression on there faces.



Thank you for reading my recount to the end, I hope you come back and read some more.
