Introduction To Decimals

WALT: Solve problems whole numbers and fractions.
I learned from this decimals presentation that you have to know what a decimal is before you really start. What is a decimal? A decimal is similar to a fraction to that it is not a whole number. It is a part of a number. We use it most often when we are talking about money. $ 13.45 How would you read this number?

My Special Places

Image result for pt england school

In this explanation writing I will be telling you about the 3 special places in my community. I live in Glen Innes.

Firstly, Pt England School is my favourite part of the community because I have been in Pt England for 6 years, I have learnt that the school is a safe place that uses digital learning objects. You learn many things that will help you with your education and your future. The school is run by a principal that has leadership, courage and aroha for his students and teachers, his name is Mr Burt known as Russell Burt. The teachers that teach in Pt England school has the knowledge that can help students with their subjects.

Secondly, the Glen Innes shopping center is a place, where people can perform in the weekends, and also to go meet your friends there for shopping. Glen Innes is a place to be when you feel lonely. The food, the furniture, the shops are filled with amazing things you can see but not steal without paying.

Finally, the cemetery’s around Glen Innes is a place where you can go and visit your loved one’s once again. I normally go there with my family to visit my grandma and grandpa, because they are the most loyal people I know that passed. My grandpa has been the king of our family because not only he helped with the poor but he helped his family a lot. My grandma is the special lady that comforts us, that will love us no matter what. That is the reason why I love going to the cemetery to visit loved ones and ones i know by spirit.  

Glen Innes is the best community to live in, because it is filled with love, strength and kindness, and it is not a place where you can start drama.

The story of Tinirau & Kae

This is a post about special Maori people and places. These were some places and peoples that I had to expose.

Team 5's waiting trip to Polyfest.

  • What is polyfest?
Firstly polyfest is another word for Polynesian festival. The Asb Polyfest is the largest Maori and pacific island cultural festival of it’s kind in the world. The Asb Polyfest features traditional music, dance, costume and speech and is now recognised as an important showcase of New Zealand’s diverse culture and a celebration of youth performances. Asb polyfest first started in 1976.

  • Activities and stages?
Students will compete on five stages, performing traditional items from the following cultures - Cook Islands, Maori, Niuean, Samoan, Tongan. There was a diversity stage featuring performances from a range of cultural groups including Fijian, Tokelau, Chinese, Korean. There also was activities, like when there’s a kitchen fire you can not put water in or on it because it would make it bigger. There are 2 ways you can put fire out. 1) Wet a piece of cloth then just throw it on top of the fire. 2) put salt into the pot.

  • My favourite Part of the day?
When we went to watch the Diversity stage. Their movements were sharp and pretty fast. They were incredible. Also it was cool walking around with a group I like to call the best group.

  • Something I learned?
I learned that Polyfest is about having pride, confidence and knowledge into your culture. Overall all the stages and activities we went to was fun, amazing, interesting. That was my second time going Polyfest but first time going with schools.
