Fractions

Last week I did a maths activity on Fractions.
This is what I did.
A) At a fancy dress party.  1/4 of 80 had costumes on.
Show how you worked out how many people had costumes on at the party :
Working out :
4 x 20 = 80
80 ÷ 4 = 20
Answer : There were 20 people in costumes at the fancy dress party.
***
B) 2/3 of the class of 24 students owned cell phones.
Show how to work out how many students owned cell phones.
Working out :
3 x 8 = 24
24 ÷ 3 = 8
1/3 of 24 = 8 and 8 doubled is 16 so 2/3 of 24 is 16.
Answer :  16 students on cell phones.
***
C) There are 180 students. 6/10 of them walk to school.
Show how to work out how many students walk to school.
Working out :
10 x 18 = 180

180 ÷ 10 = 18

The Bush

Today was the last test of testing week.
It was my writing test, this is my writing I did.

“Wow Danny, you were right.  This forest is great for hiking.”  “ I know right,  now stop being a chatterbox and lets get going.”  Danny and his friends carried on hiking through the forest,  where all the trees had birds sitting up in them,  and sticks and stones were scattered all over the paths.


While Danny and his friends got further into the forest,  they realised a funny smell.  It smelt like rotten meat and blood.  The group of friends kept going and they got to a strange place,  they all looked around and there stood a big and hairy figure,  it had blood streaming down the side of its mouth and it started to growl.  The hairy figure had something in it’s mouth,  but they couldn’t see what it was.  Danny and his friends stood where they were nice and calm,  even though they had the thought of maybe, getting eaten by a big and hairy figure.  The figure dropped what was in it’s mouth and dashed off like the speed of lightning.  One of Danny’s friends Maddie, went to see what the strange looking figure dropped out of it’s mouth. It was ... a humans finger,  Maddie screamed out in terror and ran to Danny.  Danny asked what it was and Maddie told him.  Another one of Danny’s friends decided to follow trail of blood that was leading further into the forest.  He wanted to see where it’ll lead them to.  Maddie knew what it would be, a dead body with a missing finger.  


Danny and his friends were almost there when they came up to a huge puddle of blood,  then the trail carried on.  Maddie looked around and found that there was something wrong,  she didn’t get how there was a big puddle of blood and how the trail carried on.  She knew there was someone else in the forest at the same time,  excluding the big and hairy figure she meant.  They finally got somewhere, where they could see bloody footprints and hand prints on the trees.  Danny knew that someone was definitely hurt,  but could balance properly, so the person had to lean on the trees to keep them self up.  The group of friends heard a painful scream,  it sounded like someone was in pain and really needed help.  Maddie dialed 111, but she had no signal, so they just ran up to where the scream came from, so  that they could help the person in need of help.  They got to the person and it was a girl who looked like she was either 16 or 17.  She was missing a finger and had blood all over.  Danny,  Maddie and Max all decided who would go and get help,  it was Max.  So Max left Danny and Maddie alone to keep the girl company, and to make sure nothing else would happen to her.


Max was gone for about 1 hour and a half and then returned with the ambulance.  Maddie, Max and Danny stepped back so that the ambulance people could do what they needed to do, to help the innocent girl who got attacked by a BIG AND HAIRY figure.


The girl was in hospital and was fast asleep.  Max,  Maddie and Danny were so happy they could help someone that needed their help.  When the girl awoke from her sleep she thanked them all for helping her, she was really grateful for people like them.

Testing week


This week I have been doing test on Maths, Reading and Writing and other test called Star and Gloss test.  I am so happy that testing week is over.  But the important thing for me is that I got all my tests done.  I know that I did well because I put all my effort into it and I did the best I could.  I can’t wait to receive my console, to see how much I've improved.  I hope that I've done enough to move on to the next stage, and I bet I have.
