Trip to tokelau

LI: Imagine you are a student travelling back to your homeland Tokelau on the boat trip after you have completed your studies. Write a diary entry describing your trip back home and how you are feeling about your future.


I've just finished my studies and am on my way to tokelau. On the boat it's good, I've been really excited for the arrival to see my family. I hope to see everyone is well and safe. I last talked to them a few days before the departure and we've been out on the sea for a day now. I get a little bit sea-sick every now and then, it's a little hard when all you see is ocean. Other than that I look forward to seeing my family and being back home.


Last night's sleep was ok, it got a bit cold with the small amount of blankets and the water splashing us. Some of the people snored but it was nothing compared to the waves crashing onto the side of the boat. But it was amazing to look up at the sky and see the stars and the moon. It was so peaceful the next morning, I was a bit tired as I stayed up most of the night but the sunrise was beautiful. Anyways it's time to go now. I'll write when we get to tokelau.

maths

We have been learning about algebra and expressions and equations.
First we have to learn how to do it so it'd be easier for us.
I still need to learn how to write the expression in algebra because I can get
confused. I like that way that we're learning these subjects right now.

Yr 9 Stars camp 2018 !

My highlights of camp were pretty much everything. I had fun with all of the activities maybe except for one which was the raft building because it wasn't as easy to do. One of my favourite highlights was the confidence course because it was fun rolling around in the mud and getting through the obstacles.

My lowlights were getting sick at camp and the raft building activity. I wasn't a big fan of the raft building because one of our star mentors didn't help us through it properly. Our group also didn't really work together on it.

I think to improve the camp for the next yr 9's would be to make it a little bit longer because it's a very fun camp and I wanted to stay longer as did other yr 9 students.

Reflection on sos


Image result for poi

The tradition I chose was the 'Poi' I chose to research this because I've never known much about them and why they originally used. I found out that it was used by the men for strength and coordination needed for their wars. And by the women for flexibility in their wrists. This has managed to sustain in our society today used in kapa haka performances. When I presented I felt like i did a good job. I think it would've been better if I had props to show the class instead of using my hands.

Fractions and Percentages

Finding a fraction of a number:

To find a fraction of a number we divide the number by the number by the bottom of a fraction and multiply it by the number at the top.

eg. 3/8 of 32
1/8 or 32 is 4 so 3/8 of 32 = 4 x 3 = 12


Percentages:

Percentages as a fraction are always out of 100.

eg. 35% means 35/100

when we convert percentages to decimals we divide by 100
when we convert decimals to percentages we multiply by 100

eg. 35% = 0.35
      0.15 = 15%

Finding a percentage of a number:

If we want to find a percentage of a number, we must convert it either to a fraction or decimal

Then we use MULTIPLICATION

eg. 10% of 70 = 10/100 x 70 or 0.1 x 70 = 7
      30% of 50 = 30/100 x 50 or 0.3 x 50 = 15
