This is my comment on room 8 blog.

How far can your cable car go?

This is room 5's cable car graph. The furthest cable car was Tyler his cable went 8 metres. I think the reason his cable car was the furthest was either because his balloon was big or the wind blew it so it could go fast. The shortest cable car was Fine she had 3 metres. I think the reason she had the shortest travelled cable car distance was because she hadn't taken her time or her balloon was small. The people who had the same distance were Kifi, Pace, Piripi and Miss Chapman their distance was 7 metres. I really had a lot of fun doing this activity.

The paper plane challenge by Isabella

This is room5's paper plane results. The plane that went the furthest was Piripi he had 11.16 meters. I think the reason Piripi's plane flew the furthest was because he was patient and he followed the instructions. The shortest plane was San Tat he had 2 meters. I think he got 2 meters was because he didn't follow what the paper said. My plane was 4.65. I think I did well for my first paper plane compitetion. I hope we get to do this another time.

My reflection on my origami crane

Reflecting on my Origami Crane

Please write detailed answers, as reflecting helps you build understanding with your learning.

1. Are you pleased with your origami crane? why / why not?
Yes because it actually looks like a crane.

2. What part did you find easy? why / why not?
I found folding it in halves and in quarters easy
because I have done folding before.

3. What part did you find tricky / difficult? Why / why not?
I found making it into a kite shape hard because I thought I might rip it when I had to fold it together.

4. Who / What helped you in making your Origami Crane?
Miss Paton has helped me with her step by step instructions.
Pace has helped me with the step where we had to make it in a shape of a kite.

5. What would you do differently next time? Think about folding, listening, persistence (not giving up) etc.
Next time I would need to pay more attention on what Miss Paton is doing.

The Mintie Challenge results

This is the Mintie challenge. The longest wrapper was San tat's with the total of 97cm. The shortest wrapper was Raymond's wrapper with the total of 5cm. I think the reason Raymond got 5cm was because he wasn't patient. My wrapper was 96cm so I was close to Santat's result. I think I did well with the Mintie challenge because I did this last year with Miss Paton. The people that had the same were Alazay and Tevita they had 44cm.

My results for xtramath

These are my results for xtramath.
The green means that I got them right
The yellow means I need to practise

My multiplication results

These are my results for my 9x tables. I am getting better at my 9x tables but I still need to practise. Maybe I need to practise all my times tables.
But with my 9x tables I can type fast because I nearly know it off by heart.
