Place Value Partitioning

Kiwi Sport

Today the Senior School had its first Kiwisport session for this term.


Ben, from Auckland Badminton, taught us some badminton skills.
We used a badminton racket and a shuttle.


We learnt how to hit the shuttle using forearm hit and backhand hit.
Ben also taught us how to hold the racket using different grips.

I felt super excited because I learnt how to hold the racket correctly.

ANZAC Poem

Agonising world war
Never ending
Zooming pass them, a bullet, a bomb, a fighter plane
Australian and New Zealand soldiers fighting in WW 1

Ceremonies all around the country every 25th of April
to remember all those people who died.

Movies with my Sister

Along with my sister
Travelling on a train
A lot of fun things
Going on in my brain

I'm in the movies
Ready to eat
I’m in the movies
With cold freezing feet

Watching the movie
With a big loud cough
My feet up on the chair
Because it's so, so soft

Having a lot of fun with my sister
She's the best

Time to go home and have some rest

Solving subtraction problems using place value partitioning


This week Room 10 is working on solving addition and subtraction problems using various strategies. A group of children worked with me on solving subtraction problems using place value partitioning as the strategy. After working for two days with class, I noticed that two-thirds of the class were able to solve subtraction problems confidently. The one-third of the class who were not very confident will work me again for two more sessions.

This is how Tayjah presented her work:

WALT: solve subtraction problems using various strategies


Problems
strategy
Answer
294-167=
294-167=
I can not subtract 7 ones from 4 ones because 7 is greater than 4, so I will borrow one ten from 9 tens and add it to 4 ones and I will have 14 ones, so 14-7=7


Since I borrowed one ten from 9 tens, I am left with 8 tens, so
80-60=20


200-100=100
So 100+20+7= 127



=127
   2) 384-158=  
384-158=
I can not subtract 8 ones from 4 ones because 8 is greater than 4,  so I borrow a 10 from the 8 and its goes down to a 7 so I add the 10 to the 4 ones and the number is 14 so I have enough to take away the 8 ones so 14-8=6


Now that I have borrowed the 10 from the 80, I am now left with 7 tens so 70-50=20


300-100=200
200+20+6=


=226


After doing two subtraction problems, I feel confident solving subtraction problems using place value partitioning

Duffy Role Model Assembly

Yesterday, Glenbrea school had its Duffy Role Model Assembly. Our Role model was
Sam James Verlinden. He is also known as Sam V.  Sam V is famous as a musician, songwriter,
singer and actor.

Sam spoke to us about the importance of books and reading because he felt that these were the
things which helped him become a successful musician.


Sam studied at the Auckland University of Technology and obtained a Bachelors degree in
Communication. We had a lot of fun with  Sam


I felt so happy when Sam sang his favourite song “What have you done to me”
