Duffy Assembly!

To start off our Monday morning 18th of September 2017, we had Duffy assembly. Our duffy role model was a lady who works for the radio station, she is the one who reports the news on ZB, her name is Niva Retimanu. Niva Retimanu has been doing her radio job for 30 years, which is awesome.

Image result for Niva retimanuNiva is a fun and kind person, Niva was born in Invercargill to Samoan parents. She grew up mostly surrounded with books because she always went to the library as it was always cold.

Niva Retimanu came to our school today, she told us about her career, the importance of reading and she also read us a book called “Kiss, Kiss, Yuck Yuck”. Niva is a great role model to us. I learnt so much about her. Hopefully in the future she comes back to Glenbrae School to tell her stories to our new generation.

Niva has inspired me very much and I will definitely read lots of books.

Quiz Events ~ Week 3

In the first block we were finishing off our quiz events from last week, week 3. I had finished off 7 questions from this current event event quiz, but the main one I knew about was the one about the Labour Party.

I understood more about this question because it has been coming lately on the news. Andrew Little was stood down because of a string of poor poll results, saying the party "deserved better" and that it needed a campaign uncluttered by questions about leadership and polls.

1.Jacinda Ardern took over the leadership of the Labour Party last week after who of the following stood down?

a.Grant Robertson
b.Phil Goff
c.Andrew Little

Maths: Factors

Factor Patterns:  Page 1
1~1,
2~1,2
3~1,3
4~1,2,4
5~1,5
6~1,3,6
7~1,7

11~1,11
12~1,2,3,4,6,12

17~1,17
18~1,2,3,6,9,18
19~1,19
20~1,2,4,5,10,20

I did well for my first time working with factors, it was kinda tricky trying to understand but I was given an example and I understood it.

Aaliyahna and I have completed pages 1-3. During those pages 1-3 we were given an insider of decimals as well.

Aaliyahna and I both have completely learnt heaps about factors. I have also expanded my understanding about decimals.
