Kiwi sport

Today the Year sevens went to kiwi sport sessions with Mr Ogilvie. When we started we had an exercise warm up in partners, All you have to do is get a partner so you could try each others knees with your hands. The next warm up game we played was just like boxing but you have to touch each others shoulders with your hands. But you need to be quick, after that we played octopus as normally but we did it with some Year 5's and Year 6's. The last game we played i did not know looked a bit interesting. You have to go to a flag or a cone but you have to stand the opposite way but in a line. When the person runs over the line you cant go past the line to get him or her you have to push someone lightly so that they can catch the person.

How to make a paperplane

How to Make a Paper Plane

Materials needed - Equipment
A-4 paper

Step 1 - Fold the paper in half

Step 2 -  Fold the top corner to meet the centers

Step 3 - Fold the down point

Step 4 - Fold the new corners

Step 5 - Fold up the point that has being covered from the previous step so that - Secure the flaps against the crease.

Step 6 -  Fold the paper in half along the original center fold. All the folds made in the previous steps should be facing outwards. The small triangular fold is now along what will later be at the bottom of the plane.

Step 7 - Create the wings. Fold both side flaps down to the bottom. That main centre folds the line so that the long edge of the wings are perfectly angled with the bottom of the airplane.

Step - 8 Angle the wings: Unfold the wings slightly so that they are perpendicular to the body of the airplane and form a flat surface next to each other.  

You're done !!! Test fly your airplane. Start with a gentle toss to see how your plane glides through the air. Experiment with more aggressive throws to see how high and far your plane will travel.
This is what your Paper Plane should look Like

 For maths our group has being working on decimals. Decimals are quite the same of the fractions but they just have different parts of numbers because the fractions has halves and decimals have points. We have being learning on how we figure out the number meaning of how we solve problems. As you can see I did 4.2 + 3.6 so I added the 8 with the line going across because 2 plus 6 equals 8. Then I did 4 plus 3 that equals 7. Then I relied to switch them around so it equals 7.8. I checked the calculator to see if I was correct and it was. This was really interesting but a lot of things I learnt new.
