In this game I had to complete a crossword. It was about the sea, like crabs and all. It was really easy to do because spelling fishes names are easy. Next I would like to learn about other sea creatures.

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.

Walt: make 13 ways of showing half.

In this game I had to show 13 way of making half. It was easy because all I did was make a half that I already did, then take away one and then add one. The challenging part was to make different halves. Next I would like to learn how to make 20 ways of showing half.

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.
