On Friday we had a Cultural Festival night at Glenbrae which started at 6:00pm.We had several of different dances like; Tongan boys dance, Bollywood, Tongan girls, Samoan girls, Recyling Group, Kapa Haka, Samoan Sasa, Richie and Alex showing us their Niuean group, Cook Island group, Room 4 and their poi dance and the sounds of Glen Brae(drums).

I was so nervous but also excited because my group, the Tongan boys was up next.We were performing a traditional dance called the Toli Lou Siale dance.When we started our performance i was so nervous but when my mum came up and started dancing  beside me, i had become confident.At the end of our performance i was so releaved because the dance was over.

After the performance i was hungry so James and Bono bought me a sausage which was very nice. At the end of the night i was so exhausted and tired.My favourite performance of the night was the Niuean group because they were loud and clear and everyone could hear them.

Feild Hockey Session

Today we had a feild hockey session, we started by playing two rounds off stuck in the mud.Afterthat we played a game where we dribble the the ball with our sticks in a square, and while you are doing that you go around tackling others ball so that it goes out of the square, once there ball goes out of the square they are out and they stand and wait until there one more person standing.We played two rounds of that game, but then we moved on to making our own moves with the stick and the ball.Afterthat we moved on to playing numbers hockey, where we split into two teams, the blue team and the pink team.We played that for a while  but the blue team won and finished our session with that game.

When we got there we had our morning tea.After morning tea we had 1 hour of playtime, there was a flyingfox and also a park.The boys decided to start a game of Bullrush.When time ran out we had to finish our game and quickly line up in our classrooms so that we can go inside.

When we got inside, we were introduced to our instructor for the day,  Tim.Afterthat we went into this room to learn some facts and information about the solar system.As soon as we finished, I said thank you to Tim, then we had some time to explore around the foyer.The foyer had some pretty interesting  things in it.

Afterthat we were invited into a huge room, where we watched a movie called wonders of the universe, the movie was very interesting.When the movie was finished, Tim told us that this was the end of the trip, so then we got inside the bus and headed back to school.

At the end of the day, i learnt alot about the solar system and also i was exhausted.

Maths Problem

Marilyn needs to fertilise her front lawn. It measures 20 metres by 35 metres. Each bag of the fertiliser that she plans to use covers approximately 200m2. How many bags should she buy?3 1/2
Remember: length X width
20 x 30=600
20 x 5=100
600 + 100=700

700 ÷ 2=350 Today i solved this word problem using place value pationing which is a stage six strategy.
My next goal is to solve my problems using rounding and compensating.
