Decimals with my group

 WALT: Work collaboratively to solve word problems

My group and I were learning about decimals, in my group was : Ana, Myztique, Bryana, Uasi, and of course myself. We had to read the word problem and solve it Keep on reading to find out more!!

For the first question was 4.26 + 7.54 + 3.90 = 15.7, the first thing we did was

 4.26 + 7.54 = 11.8 
then 11.8 + 3.90 = 15.7 so the answer is 15.7

The second question was 30.77 + 94.65 = 125.32 

         so the answer is 125.32
Next is the third question which was
9639.66 + 2332.55 - 1780.30 = 10191.91, First we added 9639.66 + 2332.55 = 11872.31 then we minus 11972.31 - 780.40 = 10191.91

Thanks for reading my blog post about decimals. Hope you enjoyed learning with me.

Our First Swimming Lesson


Today I learnt how to swim if I didn't have a swimming lesson today then one day I would be stuck in a situation in the middle of the sea and I would probably drown. Today at the swimming lesson we had to learn how to do a perfect backstroke and at the end we swam to end of the pool which free styling. When I went swimming I got so tired fast because I haven't swam in a long time. Our instructors name was Monique she was very kind to us.

Letter to Pakn save

130 Pt England Road
Pt England
Glen Innes
8 March 2018

Malo lelei manager of Pakn Save,

My name is Anna and I am a year 8 student at Pt England
School. I am writing this letter to explain why single- use plastic
bags should be banned from other supermarkets.

Single-use plastic bags are killing our native animals and
polluting our marine life. Such as birds, when birds see plastic
bags they think it’s food and eat it and they eventually die.

They are also polluting our world but mainly our water,
when people buy plastics they throw it away it floats in our water
which pollutes our water and kills our animals.

I am suggesting that you stop selling plastics bags.

Yours Sincerely,

His quest is to go on a long journey to look for his name and family and I think Jack No Name is going to be asking his family why did they abandon him. I know that he is connected to some mystery church.
