Attitude Talks with Tony!


Today Team 5 had a special guest come over to the street! It was Tony from Attitude Talks. Tony came to talk about who you are? and are we normal? During the talk it came to a bit when he talked about what is our personality. Tony asked us what kind of animal are we? Are we a Otter - The entertainer like the class clown. Or are you are Lion - The leader like the prefect of you school or house captain. There is also the Golden Retriever - The Peacemaker who is kind and loyal, and the last personality is the Beaver - Hard worker and can get things done on time. But each of the personality's has a weakness. None of them are stronger then the other. Tony then said to choose which animal we think is the closest to us. I thought that I am the Otter because I like making people laugh and feel happy but my weakness is that I can get bored straight away. Tony also talked about what makes us who we are. The three main things that makes us who we are is our Genes, Environment and the Choices we make. Then there comes the things we do. We should dump dumb thoughts and try something new. We also have to Do the right thing and Help Others. I thought that bringing Tony in was amazing I got to learn new things about myself and a little inside to Tony's life.

Task Description: This was a little task that was from Term 1. I am going to be finishing off my work from Term 1 and this is one of them. Tony is a guy who does Attitude Talks to intermediate kids around NZ. We were very lucky to have Tony and we had a little talk about Who am I? and Making the right Choices? This is just a description of what I've learnt from Tony. I hope you enjoy! SORRY I couldn't find any photo's.

Making 3D Clay Shapes!


Yesterday Room 4 Maths made 3D shapes out of clay. We used clay, water, a plastic wooden knife, plastic ruler and paper. The shape me and Naomi (my partner) decided to make was a hexagonal prism which is a 3D shape. We made these shapes for our young ones who are struggling to find real life 3D shapes. So we decided to step in and help them out by making them. We used a template to make the shape perfect. The shape is based on a hexagon. When we go to present our creations we have to ask them questions these are my questions: How much faces does it have? How many Edges does it have? Does it have 12 vertices.. How do you know?

How Can We Save Money?

Money’s everywhere! People use it to travel, buy things and sometimes donate to the poor or charity. But everyone has struggled with it. I believe that everyone should start saving up money for there future and that starts with you. Yes you! I am going to be explaining to you 3 different ways on how we can save our money for good so keep reading!

One way you can save money is by Sticking to a budget. Everyday people are spending there money no matter how big it costs. Sometimes you just need to stick an budget! When I say budget I mean a good budget like around $20 or $25. Sticking to a tight budget can help the big spenders save their money and can help them buy more useful stuff besides things that they want. Well your sticking to a budget be thoughtful with what you want because you might have 60 pairs of expensive shoes and you can’t afford lunch for your family!

Another way of saving money is Buying what you need not what you want! This one is important because it’s one of the best ways you can save up! Sometimes buying the things we want is not really useful then the things we need. No one really needs stuff like jewelry, Tv’s, Phone or stuff that is trending. I believe that people should use their money wisely and  stop buying stuff that are what you want unless what you want is useful. It’s up to you if you buy what you want. I’m not forcing you to but it’s a good way.

The last way to save money is by using a piggy bank. This is one of my favourite ways! Using a piggy bank is also very helpful just like the other idea’s. Is very easy to do but sometimes hard. Why you think? People don’t just put money straight into there piggy bank. Sometimes they want to spend it on lollies or drinks or something else. See It’s kind of hard! If you keep putting money the money you get in you piggy bank it will increase faster. Using a piggy bank really helps because you can save it for the future and and other important things.

Well you’ve seen my three idea’s. When you Stick to a budget, Buy what need and use a piggy bank you will feel comfortable with money and not have any problems with paying bills and food. Don’t go overboard and become a cheapskate!! Don’t spend your money everyday! It’s just the little thing you have to think about with your money. Question yourself Is the thing your buying useful? Do you really need it? I hope this will help you when you if you want to save money. Remember be Smart with your money!

Task Description: Since testing is coming up we had to do a practice explanation writing. if you don't know what explanation writing is it's just explaining a topic or a question in a writing form. We had to know the order and structure of an explanation writing in order to get it right. I found this task quite easy because I already had lot's of idea's in my head. We had to use connectives to make our writing flow well and not get mucked up!
