Today I had Garden to Table and I was on cooking,I was parred up with another year 8 then we got some of the year 1's to do some cooking. Then we started to make a pumpkin and spinach fritter, we started by showing them how to cut with the knife, after that we told them to not touch the electric fry pan then we started to grate everything together then we mixed them and also we showed them what to do when pouring things into the electric fry pan. after we cooked it all then we took it around some different classrooms to share with everyone in the different classes.

The Leadership Quality I used was Collaborate.

I showed leadership By Making sure the kids didn't Cut/Burn them self.

Visual Arts

Visual Art: WALT: Apply knowledge about shapes and patterns derived from nature into an original artwork

For Visual Art the SOLO level I achieved was: Extended abstract because I used all the different techniques.
I techniques I used in my art work to achieve this level were:
Moving water colours,Glazing and Shading.

Here is a photo of my artwork:

My next step in visual art is to use the different techniques more effectively.

Using a range of multiplicative strategies

In Maths we have been learning to use a range of multiplicative strategies when operating with whole numbers.

The strategies we have been learning are:

- Estimate the reasonableness of large problems like 1 788 – 891. Could 497 be right?
- Use multiplication to solve addition and subtraction problems eg.
  64 – 48 = as (8 x 8) – (6 x 8) = 2 x 8= 16
- Use doubling / halving, trebling/ thirding and adjusting to solve multiplication problems,
 eg.  12 x 50 solved as 4 x 150= 600
- Use an algorithm to solve multiplication problems.
- Solve problems using simple cube numbers .
- Use an algorithm to solve division problems.

Here is a link to my Multiplicative Strategies Assessment which shows that I know why and how I use particular strategies. This doc also has screenshots to show which IXL activities I have completed as part of my learning.Link to assessment task

My next step in my Maths Learning is to start measurement
