WALT
·    To compose and create a rap (with beat if possible) about bullying
How did you go about achieving this?
Dania and I have made a rap with a chorus. It was hard to find rhyming words that match each other perfectly. I'm very excited because on Monday Dania and I get to preform at the whole school assembly.
What resources were used to help you?
We used several websites and images, Dania found a rhyming website quite useful.
Did you go through the process on your own or collaborate with other people?
I did it with Dania, and Jordyn helped a little bit.
How did you find the process?
Its really fun! I hope we can make our own rap about what we want next time!
What did you enjoy most about the process of creating a rap?
I enjoyed finding rhyming words and trying to create a beat.

What might be your next step?
To actually find a really good matching beat and eventually rap it together.

Our Rap:

`  
(1st verse)
It ain’t cool
To come to school
Trembling and crying
And you’re not even sighing
I get to class
before you push me to the grass
Your a bully
you don’t understand fully
You make me feel sad   
When I haven’t done nothing bad
Why do you think you’re so cool?
When in reality you’re a fool!


(Chorus)
I try to say “hi” but you
Make me cry
Acting all tough and powerful
When really your so sourful
I wonder why you waste your time
Trying to look like a prime!
Don’t blurt what
might hurt
I have to fake the flu
Instead of seeing you


(2nd verse)
I have to go hide
Before you stroll the streets in pride
I scream in fear
Before you hear
You like to hurt me
I make sure my parents don’t see
I just want a break from you
All you say is; Boo who.
What’s the fun in coming to school
When all I see is you acting cool
I just want to have fun
I guess you won


(Chorus)
I try to say “hi” but you
Make me cry
Acting all tough and powerful
When really your so sourful
I wonder why you waste your time
Trying to look like a prime!
Don’t blurt what
might hurt
I have to fake the flu
Instead of seeing you






Maths - Multiplication & Division

Division

WALT: Solve division problems with remainders.
We had to do remainders and write a word story explaining how we do it etc...

19/2=
18/2 is 9 so it would be 2r1 because there are 2 9's in 18 and its 19/2 and there is one left over so  the answer is 2r1.






Multiplication

WALT: Multiply with large numbers.
We got given a FIO (Figure it out) book with an activity with a bird and we had to multiply large numbers to find the answer.


etc..  20 x 200= 4000
20 x 20 is 400 but because we want 20 x 200 we add the other 0 to make it 20 x 200 and then we add another 0 for the 400 to make it 400 0.












Measurement - Perimeter

I.A.L.T find the perimeter and area of shapes.

The perimeter is the distance around the outside of a shape. To find the Perimeter you add the measurements together.

Reading towards the 40 book challenge.








Reading a book every week starting off with the genres and work my way to the free books.
I choose books I’ll enjoy so I want to keep reading them. Each night I read for at least 30 minutes. I’m starting to read different types of books.
I need to work on reading books that are Biography, Classical, Graphic, Mystery, Science and Short stories.

Reading

My goal is to use grammatically correct structures.



WALT use grammatically correct structures.

  1. Complete this main idea chart.
Read the text and record key words/phrases that answer these questions:

What? Grandpa Sid invented peace because Baron Von Spanner invented war.

Using Quill helps others and I to get correct grammar, spelling and punctuation. Quill has taught me a lot about grammar, as before I started I wasn't doing half the grammar right.
