This week we are learning to ask questions to help my understanding and others maths thinking. My class got spilt into two groups, and one group was in the ground, while the other group was doing rotations. We got given this equation, and we had to find out what A and B is, and how we came up with that question. The next page shows how my group worked out one of the questions. Please visit Samoa's blog to read more from her!

Wow what a great way to spend our Monday afternoon! The team sent to teach us all about healthy living were awesome!
We had a team of 4 Vodafone Warriors lead us through a very informative session. The headings of the 3 areas they covered were: Nutrition, Sleep and Hydration. Three very important parts of our daily life. If we do a good job looking after what and when we eat, drink and sleep we will be in top shape for our learning and more!
The style of teaching used quick fun quizzes after every short talk on these areas. Chanting our team names was the way we identified which group would answer first. 'Warriors' and 'Nate is the best' were the two chants.
No doubt Room 3 will swing into gear to tell you more detail about our great afternoon with the Vodafone Warriors here at Pt England School.
Special thanks to Tohu Harris, Nathaniel Roache and...can you name the rest of the team. Leave their names in the comments section to win a prize!

It was an awesome time for all our year 7 and 8 students. Learning valuable lessons for life right now and into the future!
Here are some gems from the show:
How can we achieve the goals we set ourselves? Have you set yourself a goal? Do it!
ASK - don't be afraid to ask for help. It's the best thing to do when you're stuck. People WANT to help you! BELIEVE IN YOURSELF - having the confidence to give things a go is another key to achieving our goals!
Through play, song and dance Maio and Levi entertained and taught us. Likely a message we've heard from our own families, teachers and friends. However it's always good to hear again. Maybe for some of us we haven't had it said enough.
Our boys had the privilege of spending some up front - close and personal time with these two talented young men. They got to have some real talk about being Pasifika, Maori and Kiwi boys who CAN achieve what they want to.
Thank you Covenant Events - Levi and Maio for this wonderful experience. No doubt other Manaiakalani schools will be keen to have you visit them too!
Malo lava le faasoa ma taumafai auā fanau a le Pasifika ma Aotearoa.
