Maths - Measurement

Can find perimeters, areas and volumes of simple shapes. This is my learning goal because it is in my to be achieved box of my AsTTle learning pathway or it is a goal from the Year 6 (5,7 ) standard.

I learnt about perimeter and area.

Perimeter is the distance AROUND the shape. To find the perimeter of a shape you add together all of the sides.

Area is the units INSIDE the shape. To find the area you need to multiply length x height.


The rectangle is 6cm by 4cm.

Perimeter = 6+6=12 and 4+4=8 so 12+8=20cm

Area = 6x4=24cm squared

Writing/the jealous Griffon

WALT:I can use a text structure that is appropriate to the purpose.  

                              The jealous Griffin

Once upon a time there lived a Griffin in the jungle. One day Lion and Elephant got new devices for BYOD to school. When the 9:00 bell rang for school Mr Owl said “come in class”. Griffin got a little bit jealous about It because he didn’t have one. So when everyone went out for lunch time Griffin quickly took the two devices and hid them in his desk. When lion and elephant went to the cupboard to get their devices they  were not there. So they went home and told their parents that they lost their devices. The next morning Hippopotamus brought her new bike to school . She asked Griffin “do you like my bike?”. So when hippo went outside for lunch Griffin quickly went to the bike stand and hid hippo’s bike in a bush. When the school bell rang hippo went to get her bike but it wasn’t there. So hippo went home and told her parents that her bike was lost. The next morning Lion’s, Elephant’s and Hippo’s parents came and told the principal that Lion and Elephants devices and Hippo’s bike were stolen. Griffin saw that her friends parents were talking about where their things were. So Griffin came into the office and said it was me I hid your stuff. The principal asked where did you hide  their things. So Griffin took them to Lion and Elephants devices. After that Griffin took them to where he had hidden the bike. Then Griffin forgot which bush had the bike, so Hippo guessed which bush  and she got it right. Then the principal said “why did you steal their things” “because I was jealous” “I am really sorry can you forgive me guys” . They said “yes”. So when someone got a cool thing Griffin never stole a thing again.

Learning Plan Review

Multicultural Week

WHAT: I was involved in a range of learning experiences for Multicultural week.

I did lots of fun activities and learned about different countries. I got to have a Henna design on my hand. It was a NZ fern. I enjoyed learning about Israel and I learnt that their are more people in Israel then NZ. When I saw the Russian alphabet it was a little hard to read. I learnt that the dead sea in Israel helps your skin. I enjoyed the activities we did on Friday. The fact I was most fascinated by was that one building that was made out of wood without any nails that won't fall down. A question I have is how did did the Russians have the idea to build the wooden church with no nails.
