Problem Solving

44 x 2 = 88

Solution :
First I did 40 plus 40 that equalled 80. Then I did 4 times 2 and that equalled 8. So I added 80 and 8 then that equalled 88. And that’s how I did it.  

Problem Solving

510 + 710 = 1220

So I did 5 hundred plus 7 hundred, that equalled 120. Then I did 10 plus 10 that equalled 20. So I added 120 to 20 that equalled 1220.And that is the Answer.

Immersion Assembly

Walt: use different types of sentences to improve writing

Have you ever seen teacher’s in their pyjamas onesies in the Morning ? Because this morning team two teachers were in their pyjamas this   morning. It was a funny morning at Pt England school Assembly first day of term two, there was team two teachers’ dressed in their winnie the pooh onesies pyjamas.  

Classes seven six and eight lined up, like it was a normal assembly,
But they were wrong. At the front of the hall there was a table with marshmallow, biscuits and it had more stuff on it but I forgot what they were. By the table was Mrs Garden, Mrs Nua, Mr Jacobson and Mr Burt. They all were making mini s’more pancakes. When we sat down I saw a weird, small helicopter flying around.

P1 :

Team one’s room’s were twenty seven, twenty six, twenty five, twenty four, seventeen, eighteen, nineteen and sixteen. Soon it was team one’s turn.And they got ready to perform. It started with a short movie. After a  short while the movie was finished and the teachers started to act. It begun with Miss Berry in her payjamas sitting on the stage next to a pile of boxes and a ladder. Their acted was about Miss Berry getting a new house not for really.

P2 :

Team two’s room s’ were  fifteen, thirteen and fourteen, team two’s rooms are all year three classes. After team one’s turn, it was team two ‘s turn to go on stage. Their act started with Mrs George talking on the microphone. The act they did had healthy snacks like, Carrot sticks, mini triangle sandwich. After they gave out healthy snacks Mrs George said “ Who like’s going to the dental clinic here“ and some children put their hands up. Then she said “ NO ! We want to get rid of the dental clinic “ and then after a few seconds they were finished.  

P3 :

Team three ‘s rooms were Eleven and twelve. Which were all year three and four. Team three’s act was about there kids that actually were teachers who were bored, and it was raining outside. Soon later two minions came and the kids started to have fun. They started to have fun by playing games like, trying to throw a ball into a few boxes, playing bowling and  flying paper planes.

P4 :

Team four ‘s rooms were Six, Seven, Eight, Nine and Ten. I'm a room 6 so that means I'm in that team.Our acted was a movie, It was kind of like a video game. The main characters’ in it was Mr Somerville, Mrs Jacobson, Mr Baxensine, Mrs lavakula. But the main character was Mr Somerville, who was dressed as a superhero. In the video game Mr Somerville was jumping over blocks, ducking and smacking his enemy’s like, fish woman and a few others. But at the End fish woman won.

P5 :

After three more teams it was Mr Barks’ turn.His act had a hovercraft involved in it. Before He begun he asked Mr Somerville to be his helper.Because Mr Somerville was dressed as a superhero. It was pretty funny seeing a teacher dressed as a superhero, on a stage flying on a homemade hovercraft. But before the hovercraft could hover, it looked like a big wheel that had a minions face on the front face. First they had to attach a leaf blower.


I liked Immersion Assembly because it was full of excitement and laughter. I like this term ‘s theme and What my class it focusing on. This term ‘s theme or topic is  : Tinkering Tools and Toys. I think it’s cool tinkering with tools and toys, because we get to spend lots of time learning about tools and toys.

Making Gloop

What 's going on ?

Cornflour is made of lots of long, stringy particles.They don't dissolve in water, but they do spread themselves out.This allows the gloop to act both like slid and a liquid.When you roll the mixture in your hands or apply pressure to it, the particles join together and the mixture feels solid.But if it is left to rest or is held up and allowed to dribble, the particles slide over each other and it feels like a liquid.

The Twin Princess

BY : Alisha Khan
Once a upon a time, in a far far far away land there once lived a kingdom.The Kingdom's name was Argentina. It was a weird name, but it was a beautiful Kingdom. In the kingdom there was a King and Queen, But there was one problem the King and Queen had no children. Whenever the King and Queen went to a royal ball all the other Kings and Queen laughed at them because they had no children.On a stormy night the Queen was very stick, then so there was a ding dong form the door, so the King went to see who it was. When he returned he had two babies in his hands.When the Queen saw she fainted, after a minute or two the Queen woke up and she said What happened and then the King said Two babies and When the Queen heard two Babies she jumped up and said where are they and the King said right here and then the Queen saw the two baby. She took a good look at the Babys first and she said they are twins., and the King was overjoyed to hear that. The King and Queen had a little dance. When the King looked at them, He said they're baby girls.Afterwards the King and Queen, had a party to celebrate. Everyone in the village was invited. At the Party they also named their Daughters.The baby girls ‘s names were Down and Eve. One of the baby girls were name Down because she had yellow hair like her Father the King. On the other hand the other baby girls’ name was Eve because she had the hair as dark as her Mother the Queen.Afterwards Down and Eve went to bed and then all the fairies from the kingdom came and got to put a good spell on the twin sleeping princess.but then the Evil fairy Bloom came out of nowhere and cast an evil spell on the twin sleeping princess. Then she vanished into a gust of wind.The Evil Spell the Bloom casted on the two princess was that the two princess could never ever sing because if they do they will sleep for a thousand years and the only thing to not make the princess  sleeping for a thousand years was a fascinating diamond flower that was the only thing..Year after year day after day the twin princess grown older and so it was 21th of January, which means it was twin princess birthday. Down the younger one said lets go horse ride and Eve the older one said no lets go play hide and seek, but none of them could decide what they should do then suddenly the King and Queen spoke and they said why don’t you both go flower picking and we could have your birthday outdoors, And they all agreed. So off the two princess went to the royal garden and picked a flowers and then Suddenly Eve saw something sparkly in the sun then she talked Down and both princess walked slowly over to where the sparkingly was coming from.As they walked slowly over Down started to ask Eve, what is it and Eve said maybe it’s a priceless jewellery., and soon they were stranded in front of the fascinating diamond flower that would save them, for a thousand years. At that moment the twin princess were really eager to go home, so they ran back home and to the throne room where they meet their parents.The King was sitting on his throne and the Queen was sitting on her throne knitting a scarf for winter. Then the Queen saw what was in the princess hand, and she said where did you get that flower ? And then princess Eve said I found it in the royal garden. The Queen told the King and they immediately called, all the good fairies in the kingdom to come immediately to the Castle.Then soon the throne room was filled with fairies. Then the King asked all the fairies what to do with the fascinating diamond flower.And then one of the fairies put their hand up and said you have to make it in to a perfume and sprinkle it on the princess.So the king told the royal perfume maker to make the fascinating diamond flower.The next day the royal perfume maker came back with the perfume and sprinkled it on the twin princess. After that day fore the Royal family lived happily ever after.

What is Easter Really about

There is a lot of confusion regarding what Easter Sunday is all about. For some, Easter Sunday is about the Easter Bunny, colorfully decorated Easter eggs, and Easter egg hunts. Most people understand that Easter Sunday has something to do with the resurrection of Jesus, but are confused as to how the resurrection is related to the Easter eggs and the Easter bunny.

Biblically speaking, there is absolutely no connection between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the common modern traditions related to Easter Sunday. As a background, please read our article on the origins of Easter. Essentially, what occurred is that in order to make Christianity more attractive to non-Christians, the ancient Roman Catholic Church mixed the celebration of Jesus' resurrection with celebrations that involved spring fertility rituals. These spring fertility rituals are the source of the egg and bunny traditions.

The Bible makes it clear that Jesus was resurrected on the first day of the week, Sunday (Matthew 28:1;Mark 16:2,9;Luke 24:1;John 20:1,19). Jesus' resurrection is most worthy of being celebrated (see1 Corinthians 15). While it is appropriate for Jesus' resurrection to be celebrated on a Sunday, the day on which Jesus' resurrection is celebrated should not be referred to as Easter. Easter has nothing to do with Jesus' resurrection on a Sunday.

As a result, many Christians feel strongly that the day on which we celebrate Jesus' resurrection should not be referred to as "Easter Sunday." Rather, something like "Resurrection Sunday" would be far more appropriate and biblical. For the Christian, it is unthinkable that we would allow the silliness of Easter eggs and the Easter bunny to be the focus of the day instead of Jesus' resurrection.

By all means, celebrate Christ's resurrection on Easter Sunday. Christ's resurrection is something that should be celebrated every day, not just once a year. At the same time, if we choose to celebrate Easter Sunday, we should not allow the fun and games to distract our attention from what the day should truly be all about—the fact that Jesus was resurrected from the dead, and that His resurrection demonstrates that we can indeed be promised an eternal home in Heaven by receiving Jesus as our Savior
