Christmas Maze

In this game, I had to listen to the words that was said. When you clicked on the right one it would tell you to click on another and will make a trial. So you basically have to go through a maze to get to a letter. Then you have to click on that letter and it will give your score. This was a very easy game for me, because I know a lot about Christmas. Next I would like to do this but with more and harder words.

This game is all about Integers. This was a very confusing game for me, because I haven't done this topic in ages. Some I got wrong and some I got right. My reliever gave me some and advice and it was to add positive with positive and to always put the positive number first. So I learnt a lot from him. Next I would like to learn more on exponents with fractional bases.

The Values of Sport

In sports, there are a lot of values but four words will mean a lot to others, or even athletes. So I’m going to tell you about the four words that mean a lot in the Commonwealth Games.

Team players are always good to have in a team. Only because their is a higher chance of winning more. You can’t win without support on your side, so that is why it is good to have a team by your side. Teamwork, can help you learn new skills, it could also encourage you to win more and you would be able to talk to someone when you are need. The best thing in teamwork, would have to be co-operation. Co-operation would help the team to bond with each other and to have faith in each other.

Doing your best in sports, is a good thing to do. Good acts would help you win and to have faith in yourself. Setting your goals in something would be a great thing to do, because you can’t expect something without planning. Respecting others in competition would have to be something to always remember. So treat others the way you would like to be treated.

Playing sports is a nail biting excitement. Laughter flying across the field, even tears. Joyful noises are always to be heard. Athletes are showing off their skills and fans are screaming their names. They’re providing entertainment for your eyes. The adrenaline rising and rising, sensational chants. Fantastic athletes, it’s just a mind blowing experience.

Fair Play
Being fair in sports is something that is always needed. Playing a game without fairness, will always be an upset game. People would start to walk away and there won’t any more fun. So that is why fairness is always needed. Being fair to others and the rules of the game, would lead to a successful game. So it’s always too good to play fair and to accept the consequences of losing. There will always be a chance of looking back and to correct the mistake you made.

Medals and awards have been given to many athletes for years. They have been rewarded for their fantastic play in sports.

How to play Rippa Rugby

How to play Rippa Rugby

Walt: write an explanation.

Rippa Rugby is a fun sport to play with your friends and family. It is a game that can be played by family and friends and it is very simple. This game is about passing the ball to your team mates and to score as much as you can in an amount of time.

Having an open space is always too good to use so it could be a better game. Like, no one can play Rippa Rugby in a small room, that’s just insane. Needing team players is just as important as knowing the rules of the game. Who plays Rippa Rugby without players? Having a referee reffing the game if always fair, because no one likes a game that has unfair players. Also you will need to have belts to stick your different coloured tags on. Also a rugby ball is needed.

Knowing how to play the game is very easy. All people have to do is to pass the ball backwards to your team mates. When you have the ball run towards your try line. Try and ignore your tags from being ripped of you. Once your tag has been ripped hand the ball over to your team mate. Then do the same thing all over again until you have scored.

Playing Rippa Rugby is a very fun game to play. Especially when everyone plays fair. It’s a game of laughter and competition, but people like the laughter part.

Graphics Technology


At technology, I visited a site that had drawing tools and effects on it, which is Sumo Paint. It was really hard to draw my fruit from the paper to the internet. The easy part was knowing where all the tools were, because I've used this earlier this year.

Scale Drawings


I learned to use scale to enlarge my drawing. I used a scale of 1cm to represent 3cm. This means that my drawing was 4 times bigger. The task was challenging because it was my first time enlarging a smaller picture. I need more practise on this topic, so I can be more confident with this. Next I would like to learn reduction of a picture.

How do you think NZ did in Commonwealth Games?


I think New Zealand did competitively well in the Commonwealth games, because they had the advantage of winning more medals, than England, Australia and India. Comparing the medal count to the population, it had a small ratio. Looking at England, Australia, and India’s population, they have big numbers, but New Zealand’s population was around 10 000. New Zealand had the opportunities to work in smaller towns and locations. But England, Australia and India would have to work in places where there are crowds of people. So New Zealand had the top medal ratio in the top 12 countries.

Walt: position fractions on the number line.

In this game I have to know the order and size of fractions on the number line. It was challenging at first, until I got the hang of it. I got 3 right and 2 wrong. As I played the game, the fractions were difficult to position on the number line. To get 100% I would like to practise more and more. I would want to do more challenging examples of positioning fractions on the number line. Next I would like to learn how to position improper fractions on the number line.

Next I would like to learn more about Algebra.
