### Flipsnack

On Monday my class found a new site called flipsnack. It is really helpful for making things like books because once you have created a few slides you can press make it a flipbook then it will look like a real book and then you can flip the pages by either pressing the arrow or pulling the page with your mouse. To get onto this site you just search up flipsnack and then click on the site. I found this really helpful and I think I will use it instead of google slide.

### Ki-o-rahi

On Friday some of my class went to a Ki-o-Rahi tournament. Gilberthorpes, Hornby primary and South Hornby were the other schools that competed in the tournament. I enjoyed it but I was confused where the outline was because everyone kept on running way out of the circle that we were meant to be playing in. There were about 8 teams in the tournament. My team won two games drew one and lost one. If you don't know what Ki-o-Rahi is it is a game with a small ball, and the aim of the game is to try him the poles which are called po's and then bank the points that you scored by hitting the po's. If you are kioma you bank your points by getting a try and if you are tanipha you bank your points by throwing the ball at the tupue which is a barrel in the middle of the field which is being protected by two people on the other team. So Ki-o-Rahi is a confusing game but when you get the hang of it it is really fun.

### Quick math

Today my class did a maths challenge. We had to watch a video that had people singing songs very fast with math equations in them. After listening to it twice we had to write all the equations down on a whiteboard and then figure it out. This was fun and hard, it was fun because we had to work together if we were working with a partner. It was hard because we had right all the questions down quick before the next one came up. These equations involved division, multiplication, subtraction and adding.

I found this very fun.

I found this very fun.

### Maths investigation

On Tuesday my math group did an investigation called no 3 in a line. For this investigation I had to create a table on the Chromebook which is a big square with lot's of boxes in it, then I had to colour as many squares red as I could without getting three in a row. I found this easy because I didn't have to use any division, adding or subtracting but I did have to use times tables when I was doing 5 by 5 or 4 by 4, for the table that I was making on the Chromebook. This was one of the slides I did.

### QwikQure

Last week my math group did a challenge called QwikQure. This is my slide and how I worked it out

To solve this problem I used times tables. So as it said on the slide Mr Morrison would finish his quicker than Rose. After I did this slide I did a challenge. This was very fun and I enjoyed doing it.

### Ice palace

This week my class have been reading a book called ice palace.

It was written by Robert Swindells and it was written in 1977.

First, we had to write two paragraphs about the main character called Ivan and the land that he lives on. Then we started reading the book. In the book, there is a person called starjik and he has wolves that he brings to the village each night and takes one child away and they are never seen again, Then Ivan's brother gets taken so Ivan goes looking for him. If you have read this book you could comment if you liked it.
