Leadership in the community 3

Today (Wednesday) I attended Student Council. At Student Council today we talked about our recent meeting where we discussed having a mufti day standing up to bullying. That day was last Friday and the mufti day was called Pink Shirt Day. You needed to wear something pink to stand up to bullying as well as bringing a gold coin. This meeting today was a time to reflect on the mufti day ; how it we, how much we raised. Today at Student Council I showed the CARE values because I contributed to a group discussion and I attend regularly.

Today I went to the Library to do my duty. When I was the Library today I showed the leadership trait of being trustworthy. For my role as a Librarian I show the CARE values by attending regularly. Today in the Library we got some new books . And I got out a book called the 1 and only Ivan. It is a senior fiction book. I recommend reading this book if you are Year 7/8.

In this unit learnt… about adverbial clauses , connectives and conjunctions.

A connective is… a word that connects a sentence. These can be words like and , but , or and because.

An adverbial clause is… A word that describe the time something happened. These can be words like : before , after and yesterday.

Here is a link to a compare and contrast map of an adverbial clause and a connective.

Square numbers to 100 and their matching square roots.

In Maths we have been learning………..

Square numbers to 100 and their matching square roots.
This is part of our Number Knowledge.
It is important to just know these as we can use this knowledge in other areas of maths.

Here are the IXL screenshots that show evidence of my learning.  

Write multiplication expressions using exponents

Here is an image of my Square Root Chart that can be found in my Maths book.

My next  step in Maths is…… to use this new knowledge to help me solve problems in a variety of other areas of Maths. I would also like to do more square root activities on IXL.
