Kiwi Can Reflection

Today for Kiwi Can we learnt what perseverance meant in a normal life situation. Perseverance means to never give up or get frustrated and keep trying our best. For example if you have something important to do and you don't want to do it you use perseverance by getting up and going even if you don't want to . during a activity in Kiwi Can we used perseverance to keep trying our best and to try not get frustrated because in this activity you had a invisible ball and tried to score it but if the opposing team tags you they get the ball and that is why we used perseverance in that activity.

Exponents




Today for math we have been learning exponents. You can solve them very easy if you know your times table. For example if your writing 10² then you would write 10 x 10 = 100. But if it is a cubed question then you would write it like this 10³ 10 x 10 x 10.

Image result for alfie bloom and the secrets of hexbridge castle
We have been reading for the past week we have read books we chose from the library and have been doing activities to explain what our book is about. My story is about a boy named Alfie Bloom who stays in a  big castle and has a flying bear as a pet and no one knows about it. To relax he usually goes on a ride to the clouds and comes back on his bear. So far I am writing a descriptive paragraph about Alfie Bloom by using evidence from the book to find out what kind of person he is and what he might be in the future.
