This week in maths I learnt about the cartesian plane. The cartesian plane is a tool in maths that help you pin point a spot on a map or anything else. Here is a picture of a negative cartesian plane.
I also made a show me for the parents maths information night. The link to that is below.
Maths show me!
I am still reading the same book holes.
In daily 3 2 friends and I have created a group called the Cricket Sensations. We are a trio who sing songs about cricket. Here is our link to our page. We really enjoy making people laugh with our songs and our moves. It all started when we had to make a ballad for school. So we made it into a bigger thing. It all started with the sing Swing Young Jimmy.
At the moment I am reading a great book called Holes. I am really liking it because it draws you in. The book is about a boy who gets accused of stealing some special baseball shoes. He then goes to court and can choose to go to Camp Green Lake or kids jail. Camp green lake is in the middle of a dessert. The dessert used to be a lovely town with a glistering blue lake running through but now it is a punishment place. At Camp Green Lake you have to dig one hole a day. 5 feet wide and 5 feet deep. Stanley meets a group of boys who have been sent there to. He gets on with them at the start but not for much longer. With the book Holes I am in a literature circle with 3 other boys we are all really engaged and into the book.
On the Friday it was my birthday. I was pretty dissapointed because I had to go to school. I got a Go Pro, some mounts and some other cool things. That night I played football against Leopold. I was captain with Cooper because his birthday was on the saturday. It wasn’t a smooth night because in the under 10’s game the umpire told a kid to run behind him while he was balling it up he said run to the kid and through it over his head. Our runner went up to him and disscused it. Then after the game the umpire came to our runner and argued then mum got involved and got pushed by an angry women. But the good thing is is my team won. On the Saturday my family and I went to Forrest. we went with some other familys. We went to heaps of places as well as cool bike rides. On the Tuesday My dad and I had to go in to Melbourne for my dad’s job interview that was a fun day.
My mum, shows a lot of fruits and gifts all the time. She shows a lot of patience and she shows respect to everyone. Mum shows patience when Hunter and I don’t listen to her or do the right thing. A lot of people tell my family that I have the nicest and happiest mum. She also puts other people first and thinks about caring for other people before herself. She always is helping other people and they can always rely on her to do the right thing. She is extremely generous with both her time and money. She gives her time to the school when she organises big P&F events. My Mum also organised for our family to sponsor a child in Africa because they are a lot less fortunate than we are.
My mum said to me she needed to go down to the shops to get some new books for her home book store, so I went along with her. We hopped in the car and started to drive, then the car stopped suddenly. I couldn’t see what was wrong but mum looked worried. Then I saw a man in a blue outfit that said police on the front. He walked up to my window and looked inside. He then walked back to mum and put this thing in her mouth he then said bye. “Ready” mum said. “yes” I said.
My group have picked camp quality for our mission day project. We chose this charity because they take kids like the same age as us on fun camps, we think everyone should have fun. They take kids to amps and they also take their parents on the camp to give them a break as well.
