Finding The Phases Of The Moon



WALT: accurately identify and organise the phases of the moon

My Reflection

I was able to read the description of the phases and match the text to the images of the moon and then recheck my words and images with my friends. The link between Matariki and the moon is Winter Solstice, the shortest day of the year. The second reason was Matariki comes after the second New moon after Winter Solstice

Next time I will first read through the description first before just guessing were everything goes and just placing things everywhere.

Queen's Birthday



WALT: understand passing on messages is important so we can understand why we celebrate

Learning Reflection

I was able to find a group of three and find the real meaning of Queen's Birthday and post it into a slide show. I needed to find who, what, when, how about the queen's Birthday. I think it is very important to pass the message correctly without any incorrect information otherwise the next people who read it will think that is correct, but actually is not true.

Next time I will read the information from the internet and put into my words that relate to the purpose  even more clearly than I have done in this slideshow

Multiplication Strategies



WALT: use a variety of multiplication strategies to solve problems

I was able to use place value partitioning, rounding and compensating and doubling and halving to solve all multiplication problems. I am now much more confident with my maths.

Next time I will try to solve harder problems in multiplication.
