Today is the first day of the holidays and I really think that I might not do a lot of activities during the holidays. I'm hoping to spend good quality time with my family. Even if we might not get to go out, I don't care I just want to spend time with my family.

What happened today at school.

Today at school, we finished off some maths work and I had entered my team movie.Our movie was about 'When friends begin, they never end' and I made a movie about it. When school was nearly finished the class had to clean up and everyone went home to start their holidays.

Book Review

Title: The Haunting Of Nadia Author: Julia Jarman
Date started: /07/2013   Date finished: 31/07/2013
What was the book about?
What I have been reading is about a girl named Nadia. She is a girl that does not believe in Jenny Greenteeth. Jenny Greenteeth is known for taking naughty children into the pond and eating them. At the disco Nadia goes dressed as Jenny and her best friend Jamie tries to talk her out of it but she can’t. That night Nadia’s brother goes to a birthday party dressed as a Pirate and when the party was over Nadia went with Jamie to the disco and Nadia’s mum went to pick her brother up and he wasn’t there. Nadia starts looking for him then she hears her brothers voice, at the pond. Nadia calle’s him when her brother was going to jump into the pond, just as he jump Nadia jumped in after him to get him. Nadia couldn’t see much because the pond was disgusting and slimy, and Nadia feels something so she pulls. Just then Nadia saved her brothers life and her mum came and calls for the ambulance. A few weeks later the government digs up the pond and fills it in with dirt. But is Jenny Greenteeth still alive?.

Maths Problems.

Every hour I used 50 ml of sunblock to protect me from the sun. How much sunblock did I use for the 6 hours I was at the fair?

50 ml x 6 = ?
300 ml of sunblock was used at the fair because,

5 x 6 = 30, but it was 50 x 6 = 300.

Fraction Problems.

I have learnt how to use multiplication and division to solve a fraction problem.

E.g - Five people share an apple pie equally. Each person gets 1/5 of the pie.
25 slices of apples are put on top of the pie, which are also spread evenly amongst the slices of pie.
How many apple slices does each person get?

Answer: Each person gets 5 apple slices on each piece of pie.
5 divided by 25 = 5            5 x 5=25
