Mr Wong Math Challenge Subtraction


Today for maths Mr Wong created a addition and subtraction challenge for our maths group using his smart coding skills to finish this. This maths challenge was very fun and tricky because we used all sorts of strategies to solve it, this activity is really fun and it also exercise my brain and makes it think. All the strategies I used went with the different numbers that came after. The point of the game is to solve all the question that it ask you and get to the end the fastest.


Reading book Review


Today for reading we needed to get in to our groups and present our slideshows on the books that we'd read. We needed to explain the theme, the setting, our overall review and other parts related to the book. After we'd explained the work that we'd done our next task was to explain why we did/didn't like the book and who the main characters are as well as where the story is set.


Trip to the whitewater park


Today Panmure Bridge was lucky to be funded by Vector Wero Whitewater Park, but we were to give in $5 each to be part of this activity. There were only year 7 & 8 who had the chance to do a rafting course which was pretty amazing. Before doing anything we were to watch a safety video explaining what we need for the course and how to help someone who's in danger in the water.After that we all put on all our swim suits, helmet, life jacket, and a jacket. We also received a paddle. Soon, we got into group of 6 and each group had an instructor. In my group I had Mataio, Joseph, San Kyaw, Ofa, Freeman and Tim was our instructor, and I. Tim did a little talk about how to stay safe in the water and answered some of our questions. Then it was time for the ultimate rafting course.

Today is the last week for the HITT (High Intense Interval Training) program. We have been doing HIIT for 15 weeks. We have also have been doing HIIT twice week, we have had lots of different exercise changes and we are apart of the AUT research. This training program is based on increasing our heart rate by Pau te hau which means getting puffed. The 4 rotations we did are tap steps, push ups, star jumps and sit ups. For these rotations we did the 4 sets of each. We also had 10 - 20 seconds to do them. We got an extra 10 seconds for a little brake to regain our energy.
