W.A.L.T: adding and subtracting decimals with tenths
Description: for maths we got to work on decimals. We had to add decimals together and write down the fraction like I did here. What I did added the wholes first then added the tenths. Since 9 and 8 make 17 I take away the ten because 10 is the same as 1 whole, so I added that 1 whole with 4 wholes so I would get 5. So the answer is 5.7
Description: my groups task is to retell the story the whispering moon
There was a happy family that lived on top of a hill, in a lovely house and in that small family was little 7 year old Maraea, older brother Maki and their parents. The closest relative to them was their uncles house. One night Marea stood outside she heard the wind whistling and howling, the trees were swishing about and the moon stared into the eyes of the earth . While her older brother was telling her to hurry up he noticed that the moon was out, "never mind don't go," he told Maraea, "you might get taken like Rona," Maraea gazed up at the moon she shivered In fear. Suddenly the two children herd there father yell at them ," hurry up your mother is having the baby go to your uncles house and get the car hurry up!" Maraea and Maki rushed into the darkness. They went down the hill, when they got to the macrocarpa trees there was an awful silence. The two siblings stared at each other both of them were frightened but the both knew that they had to go get the car, so Maki raced off into the dark past the church, the graveyard, down the dark road to a near by lake. Suddenly Maraea heard a whisper in the trees.
