Excellence Care Values 1


Last week at technology we had a switch in our Pentads so this week we did Design instead of Science. This years order is different, last years order went, Design, Woodwork, Science, Cooking and Then Textiles and then Design again and so on. But this years order goes Design, Cooking, Woodwork, Textiles, Science and so on. Design and Textiles is taught together with Mrs Scott and Mrs Paterson. All we learnt at Design was net making, which is basically what a 3d object would look like if it was folded out and we also learnt how to use the 3d modelling tool Tinkercad's beta. After that we did a general knowledge Kahoot which was challenging and I learnt a lot of things in that Kahoot. I think the Care Values I showed was Active Thinking because I had to use my brain in some of the net making challenges and the Kahoot.

Merit HLC E6

For my merit badge I did Home Learning Challenge E6 which was Research a career and present your findings.. As you can see, I used a digital presentation for the challenge and I decided to use a comic book theme for the presentation. It took me some time and I used some careers sites to help decide which career to research

Teaching Kākano Students Games

Today All the year 8 & some year 7's taught the Year 0 & 1 simple games that they could play at break. Me and Joseph T  taught our group how to play Giant's Treasure which was a Sneak up on granny & grandma's keys-esque game. It was a fun game that some of the juniors enjoyed.

WALT: Reason with linear proportions

WALT: Combine simple proportions to work out what parts the whole is made up in a unit
We learnt how to calculate percentage increase and decrease. If you want to calculate percentage increase, you have to find the percentage difference between the two numbers you are comparing and divide the difference by the original number and then times it by 100 and convert that decimal into a percentage. For example: What is the percent of decrease of 16 to 14? The way you would solve this is find the difference between the original number and the new one. 16 - 14 = 2. Divide 2 by 16 which equals 0.125. Multiply that by 100 and it equals 12.5%, So its a 12.5% decrease.
WALT: Combine proportions to work out what parts are whole is made up of using non multiples of 10.

We learnt how to calculate how much the percentage increased or decreased in number. The way I did this was I found the percentage and if it was an increase: added it onto the 100, and if it was a decrease: subtracted it from 100. …
