What I Have Been Learning During Maths This Week

This week I have been practicing using the tidy number strategy. I used this strategy to work out addition and subtraction maths problems.
For example 68+?=104
2+34= 36
So your answer is 36

Taking My Net-book Home

The first time taking my net-book home.
Yay! We could FINALLY take our net-books home after 2 Terms, and 4 weeks. It was now our responsibility to make sure our net-book is fully charged and ready for the next day.

I was super-duper- ultra- mega excited taking my net-book home.

I can’t wait to do more work on my net-book, and taking care of it, showing my teacher that I am a responsible person.

Being M.C. For The Day

Friday 19 August was a special day for me as well as for the whole school. We celebrated the life of the Patron Saint of our Parish and our school, St Pius X.

One of the ways we celebrated our special day was having a Talent Quest, so a bunch of kids who made it through the auditions, could show the whole school their special talents, our Heavenly Father has blessed them with.

I played a special role for the talent quest, I as well as Robertanna were the M.C.

I walked up ready to begin our Talent Show, “WHATS UP St Pius” we began with, I started talking really fast, and I knew my nerves had got the better of me, but I carried on and I was off the stage before I knew it.

“Give it up for Room 4” me and Robertanna said, as they were our first act.

The Talent Showcase went on, there were groups that sang songs, groups that did a dance routine, and a whole lot more, it was a HUGE success.

The bunch of students really did show the school that they have Talents. As for myself my talent is pretty much talking, and that was 1 of the reasons why I volunteered to be the M.C.

Friday was special and I know that the whole school enjoyed themselves as much as I did.

My Highlight

My first thought of the pool was ‘how deep is it ?’

I nervously walked into the portable swimming pool taking step, by step. I finally got in the pool and I started having fun, I knew that there was nothing to worry about. This was my highlight.

I can’t wait for our next swimming lesson on Monday.
