Maths- Use graphs, tables, and rules to describe linear relationships found in number and spatial patterns.

WALT use graphs, tables, and rules to describe linear relationships found in number and spatial patterns.

Tina and Tom were twins. Tina saves and Tom spends. Tom found a $20 note on Sunday evening and spent $2 a day starting on Monday. Coincidentally, Tina started work that Monday and gets $2.50 a day. How long would it be before Tina has more money than Tom?

This is how I worked it out:

I think that the answer is five days, because as you can see on my table I have circled Friday, which is when Tina first had more money than Tom. To form my answer, I drew up a table with the days of the week and the twin's names. After that I counted up in $2.50 on Tina's row and then counted down by $2 on Tom's row. After that I had to find which was the first day Tina had more money than Tom, which was Friday. So that's how I got my answer, five days.

Distinction Evidence ( Radio Station )

When the lunch bell rang I went into the radio station room and started to write down the songs and different articles onto the script, while I was waiting for my friend. Then she arrived and helped me decide which songs and which news articles to talk about. After that I got the song ready we were going to play first. 

Then we started, we started by introducing ourselves and talking about what we were going to talk about during the show. Then we played a song, I have the job to press enter to start playing the song while I or someone else introduces it. 

After the song we talked about stuff that was happening at school, for example we talked about the teacher only day on Monday and read out the people who had achieved there Bronze or Silver C.A.R.E certificates. Then we played another song.

After the song we read out an article from a kids news website. It was called Hair, it was about all the different things your hair can do and what it has in it. Then we played the last song which was 'Greece Lighting' sung by the High School Dropouts.

After that we went out and played outside for the last few minutes of lunch time.

Distinction Evidence ( Technology )

I was really excited for Woodworks that week because it was our second time doing it and I was almost finished my plan. When we got off the bus to Lincoln School, I went and put my bag down outside the Woodworks Room and grabbed out my pencil case. Then I went inside and sat down, Mr Bowers the Woodworks teacher, talked to us about what we were going to do. He told us that we would finish our final plan, then we would show him and he would ask if anyone else was creating a box with the same measurements, after that cut out the wood for us. 

So then we carried on with our plans. We had to make four different designs. So I designed four different speaker boxes then I had a look at them and decided which one I should do, I decided to do the one that kind of looked like it had three different shapes in one. It also has a hole in the top where you can put your phone. There is a drawing of it below.          
After I drew up my final plan, with measurements. I showed Mr Bowers. He had a look at it then asked everyone if they had the same plan, only one person did. Then he cut out the wood for us. First he cut out the front and back pieces of wood and drew up the square in the middle where the hole is going to be. Then he used this machine to cut out the hole. After that he cut up the wood for the rest of the box and showed us how to put it together. So me and my friend assembled our boxes, it was actually really fun assembling them. Right after we finished putting them together it was time to pack up. So everyone helped pack up the class, then we all went outside and onto the bus.

Distinction Evidence ( PALS )

At morning tea time we had a PALS meeting with all of the PALS. Mr Muller and Mr Forman reminded us that we need to wear our orange vests so if anyone wanted to play with the PALS they would be able to see us. He also told us about the skipping ropes, that they were in the back room next to the Music Room. After the meeting we asked Mr Forman if we could use the skipping ropes at lunch time, he said that we could and he would show us where they were. When we went into the room there were buckets with skipping ropes in them and one hook with ropes hanging on it. He grabbed off one pile of skipping ropes and told us that there were ten ropes per pile and we had to knot them together. So when we knew all the stuff and where all the skipping ropes go we went back outside to play at lunch. 

At lunch time me and one of the other PALS went to grab the skipping ropes, we grabbed two red,  two blue and two purple, then we grabbed some cones. We took them to the court and lay them on the ground. I put all the skipping ropes out and the other person in my group put down the cones. Then the two other PALS came and brought all the bright orange vests with them. Then I went around and invited heaps of people to come and play with the skipping ropes. After that we got out the long purple skipping ropes and let people skip with them while we held the handles. 

After about twenty minutes we asked everyone to put the skipping ropes back so we could pack them up. We packed up the skipping ropes by picking them up and knotting them. Then putting them back on the hook in the back room. After that we put our vests away and went back inside because the lunch bell rang. 

Distinction Evidence ( Radio Station )

At eating time before lunch, my friends asked me if I could help them out with radio station. They wanted me there so we could do our body percussion, which is basically stomping, clapping, clicking and slapping. Here is a video of someone doing a body percussion. They also wanted me to be there so I could help them out a bit.

So when the bell rang I went into the radio station room so we could get ready to start radio station. They started by introducing themselves and talking about what was coming up on the show. Then they played a song, it was Story of my Life.

After the song they started talking again and that's when I realized that they had there microphones off the whole time, so I told them that they needed to turn them on and restart. So they did and they introduced themselves again and they decided to do a different song, which was Impossible by James Arthur.

Then they started talking about some stuff happening around the school like dates of things like the open day and sausage sizzles. Then they played another song.

After the song they read out some news from the news article, one article was called "BANNED" and another was called "Puppy Shaming" the puppy shaming one was funny because there were photos of all these dogs that had done bad stuff, those naughty dogs.

Then they finished up and played the last song, then we went outside to play for the last five minutes of lunchtime.

Distinction Evidence ( Peer Mediation )

When I got to Peer Mediation, the other Peer Mediator came and we both put on our vests and grabbed the iPad. After that we went outside and onto the field, to start walking around it. We were walking around the field for a long time, then my friend came up to us and asked when we were finished. I told her that we would finish at ten past one and I could play with her then. 

After that we carried on walking around field for ten more minutes, there were absolutely no problems. Which was pretty good, because then everyone was playing nicely together. I really like Peer Mediation because you get to be a role model for the students at Oaklands and solve any problems that they have. 

When Peer Mediation was finished we went inside to put our vests away and the iPad, then I went outside to play with my friend. 

Distinction Evidence ( Technology )

On the bus to technology, I sat next to two of my friends and I was sitting in the middle. We started talking about art and drawing. Then we started talking about different movies. For example we were asking each other if we had seen a movie. My friends told me about all of these great movies that I haven't seen yet, that I probably will soon. Then we got off the bus and went to design in the school hall.

 It was our last session before we move on to the next class. Since I have finished my box I got to make whatever I wanted. So I decided to make a present for my uncle, because it's his birthday soon. So I decided to create a box. So I drew up the net for the box and cut it out. After that I folded it up and glued it together. Then I decorated it with green paper and glued some of the Rabbitohs logos on it, because it's his favourite rugby league team. I stuck a different logo on each side. Then I decided to make another box. Out of popsicle sticks. I stuck heaps of popsicle sticks together to make five sides, then I glued them all together. 

After I made the two boxes it was time to get back on the bus, so I hopped onto the bus with my boxes and we drove back to school. 

Distinction Evidence ( Radio Station )

When we started eating lunch Reia and I went into the radio station room with our lunch. Then we went through the script and wrote down the songs, news and so on. Then Mr Mcallum came in to teach us how to use the equipment. So he taught Reia how to use the sound machine and taught me what to do with the laptop.

Then we started, Reia started by introducing us and saying what was coming up on the show. Then I introduced the next song, which was "Hey Brother" by Avicii. After the song we read some news from the school news letter, like how there was going to be a school Open Day the next day. Then we played another's song which was "Story of my Life" by One Direction. Then I read out some news from this news booklet, it was the weirdest flavoured Jellybeans. There was black pepper, baby wipes, dirt, grass, dog food and boogers. It was really gross. Then we played the song "Love is Easy" by McFly. When the song was finished we put another song on which was "Aotearoa" by Stan Walker. After that Reia read out an article about the minions in Waipara, in Waipara they made the three minions out of tyres, old drum kits and much more. It was amazing. Then we playing the last song of the afternoon, which was "Happy" by Pharrel Williams. Then we finished, we turned off the microphones and went outside to play for the last 4 minutes of lunchtime.

Distinction Evidence ( Communication Team )

When I got to Communication Team in room eleven. Miss Patten asked me if I could go get the EOTC camera so we could upload the photos onto the computer. So I went and got it, then we got the chip out and put it into the computer. Then we opened up the app called iPhotos and tried to upload the photos onto that. When it didn't work we tryed on iMovie, but then that didn't work so we just decided to do it another time. Then we got the EOTC camera and room elevens camera for assembly.

At assembly I started with room elevens camera and my friend started with the EOTC camera. We took photos of people with the awards, people talking and videoed some of the presentations. Then they started doing the bronze certificates, for the Kakano Team. Then the Kauri Team, my name was called, I was nervous, but excited, I walked up and got my certificate, then my friend came up. We had to get someone to take our place while we were up the front because then we wouldn't get any photos of some of the Kauri Team with their bronze certificates. Then we came back down and swapped the cameras. So I had the EOTC camera. Then we took a few more photos of the assembly. Then when it finished we have the EOTC camera back to the office and gave the room eleven camera back to Miss Patten. After that we went back to class.

Distinction Evidence ( Peer Mediation )

Before Peer Mediation started, the other Peer Mediator came and asked me to find someone to fill in for them. So I asked my two friends and they said that they would help out. So we went to get our vests on and grab an iPad. 

Then we went outside and onto the field to start Peer Mediation. We walked around the field a few times, then a girl from the Kakano Team come up to us and said that a girl was being mean to her. We got her and the other girl and we sat down to try and solve the problem. It was just that on girl wanted to play with the other but didn't want to play the game, so they started arguing about it. 

We carried on walking around the field, then we finished Peer Mediation and. went back inside to put our stuff away. 

Distinction Evidence ( PALS )

When the bell rang for the end of lunch I went to find my group for PALS. I couldn't find them so I asked some of my friends to help me get some gear out of the P.E shed for the Kakano Team. So they helped me grab some hula hoops, skipping, ropes and stilts.

After that we went out onto the courts and saw that the rest of my group had set up the cones and we waiting for us, so we put down all the gear so the kids could play with it. It was really fun playing with the hula hoops and learning how to walk on stilts. My friend taught me how to use them. So we played tag on the stilts and it was really fun trying to tag the other person while trying not to fall off. 

When the bell was almost going to ring we grabbed all of the stuff and put it back in the P.E shed then the bell rang so we went back to class.

Distinction Evidence ( Technology )

When we got to Technology I got off the bus and walked to my Technology class. After that I started on my box, I was making a bowling and I was almost finished. All I had to do was make a few signs and glue some stuff on.

 I asked my friend to help me make a few bowling balls out of tinfoil. So she helped me and I glued them onto the shelf. Then I created some signs and stuck them on too. After that I decided to create a wooden box. ( out of popsicle sticks ) So I made five sides, one for the bottom. It was really fun making both my boxes. The bowling alley I made looks really realistic and I spent a lot of time and effort into it. 

When we got back on the bus back to school I brought my boxes with me and then I got to take them home. 

Distinction Evidence ( Radio Station )

At lunch time I was sitting down eating my lunch with my friend, Mr Mcallum, the music teacher walked in.

 The previous day we had seen some people do radio station and really wanted to do it. So we asked him if we could join radio station. He said we might be able to and he'll check the roster. He also asked us if we could meet him in the music room after eating time. So when eating time was finished we went to the music room and waited for him. 

When he came in, he grabbed the roster and sat down next to us. There was a free spot and he asked us if we were free that day. Luckily both of us were so we went on radio station that day. Then my friend asked if we could have a script so we both could have an idea of what to talk about. So we went down to the room where they do radio station and grabbed a script.

 After that we went over to the deck outside our class and starting practicing the script. We were really excited even though we were doing it the week after. Then after a long time of practicing the bell rang so we went outside our class and lined up. 

Distinction Evidence ( Communication Team )

Before Communication Team started my friend asked me if I had anything on at lunchtime I said yes and that I have Communication Team on. She asked me if she could join, so I told her she would have to ask Miss Patten.

 So we went to room eleven and she asked Miss Patten if she could join Communication Team. Then we went and got an iPad and went around the school taking photos of people playing in the hot weather, the collage that I made is below. It was really fun taking photos of people playing football, on the elastics, netball, around the world and talking on the Oaklands School radio station. 

We silently went into the room where they do radio station and took some photos of what they were doing. Then they asked us if we would like to play a game on the radio. We played a game called challenge. Basically you have to talk about a certain topic without pausing for more than three seconds, saying um or arrgghh, going off topic or repeating something that they have already said. So the topic was radio station. It's a really hard game to play but I enjoyed it. After doing that I want to join radio station.
