First Brain Challenge

My Reflection
I was learning about the brain. This was the first task. I found the first part easy, the second part easy and the third part easy. My next step is to finish all the challenges in the brain inquiry

A-Z Brain Challenge

My Reflection 
I was learning about the brain. I found this hard at the start and easy when I came back to it, because I found a website which was a A-Z about the brain. My next step is to finish the other brain inquiry work.

100 word challenge Term ? Week ?

Story world
One day I got up and looked around my street. It was a beautiful day. Suddenly I saw the cat.
Now this may sound normal, but this was a cartoon cat, and it got much weirder when I touched it, and was teleported to a new land.
"Ron, Ron! You have to save my beautiful face!" Said a voice. Then I saw the boy with the glasses, and the freaky vampire thing chasing him. I did the only thing I could think of, I threw a rock at the freaky vampire thing.
"YAY I DEFEATED VOLDERMORT!!" Said the glasses boy.
"No I did!" I protested.
"LIES!" He replied.
My Reflection
I was learning to write a story with only 100 words. I think I found this hard, because this story has more than a hundred words. This was the first 100 word challenge I did, I think. My next step was paragraphs (Which I added in when I uploaded this).

Kensuke's Kingdom Interveiw

My Reflection
I was learning to read a piece of text and write a piece of text from one of the characters point of view.  I found this easy because I like writing stories in a interview style like this. My next step is to do this from another character's point of view. 


My Reflection
I was learning about tessellation. I found this work easy because it was basically a jigsaw puzzle. My next step is to learn about shape translation.

"Calvin wake up."
"Hello Calvin."
"Calvin it's father's day."
Annoyed by this sound which seemed to be determined to wake me up, I reached for my trusty tissue box of "goawayordieplz" (which is a word) only to find that the voice seemed to be in my head.
"What a strange thing, what's father's day? I shall think of this in my bed for a while longer..." I thought "Wait a bit less than a minute (but a minute for the purpose of this sentence), father's day!"
I raced to the cupboard.

At the cupboard,  my brother, my sister and I chose our presents. I chose the floppy one, Vivienne chose the one with the note that said "FRAGILE!" and Justin chose the one that looked like a DVD. We took the presents to dad. I can't remember what mine was, but Vivienne's one was a plastic tube which was apparently for wine, and Justin's was a DVD containing two movies.

In the afternoon we drove to my uncle's house because it was time for my uncle's birthday party. Our gift to him was the last book that Terry Prachet wrote. I spent most of the party reading Calvin and Hobs, a physiology comic book of which I was named after. It was an okay party, as far as parties go.

Finally, it was time to go. It wasn't that boring after all. I said goodbye and got in the car. I was tired. The drive home was as boring as this sentence. How was your weekend?

Kensuke's kingdom vocabulary challenge

My reflection
I was learning to extend my knowledge of new vocabulary ( as shown above, quite clearly). I found this tricky because I had to go back and forth from this work to the dictionary tab because I did not know how to spell the words. My next step is to define more words.

3D Shapes

My Reflection
I was learning to identify 3D shapes. I found this tricky because counting the edges and faces is difficult when you can only see one side of the shape. My next step is to identify shapes that make up object such as:  cone + cylinder = Ice cream

Term 3 Week 7

The Kapa Haka Performance   
 It was a rainy Monday morning, when we had to go to the auditorium for a Kapa Haka performance, with the Lendon Park School Kapa Haka, because we were practising for the koanga festival and they were practising for the kapa haka nationals.
Firstly, while the other school was getting ready, we sang songs. And that was an incredibly boring sentence. How about this: While the great Lendon park school kapa haka was preparing for their magnificent performance, we sang incredibly boring songs, such as the song of vanity. As you have probably guessed, I was very bored.
Secondly, our kapa haka performed. It was incredibly loud, and (not surprisingly) I was still bored. (mainly because of the fact that this was an assembly.)  The performance cycled between talking, shouting and singing. I cannot remember any of the names of the songs that they sung.
Next, the other school preformed. This was even louder than our performance (You have done the impossible Lendon park school, good job) This performance cycled between singing and shouting (And surprisingly little talking.) I was slightly less bored seeing that the assembly was very nearly over.
Finally, the assembly was over. The other school's kapa haka was much better than ours. ( Yes, it was.) Now I was not bored, seeing that it was lunch time.
