Parliament

This term we have been learning about Parliament. We have looked at the difference between government and parliament, NZ parliament, who is in government, how our government works and we compared democracy to dictatorship.


Three things that I learned in NZ parliament are:

  • that there are 4 buildings that make the building 
  • the speaker has to give you permission to sit in the seats in the chamber 
  • there is  a special chamber below the bee hive where they go if there is an emergency

W.A.L.T: I can find fractions, decimals, and percentages of amounts expressed as whole numbers, simple fractions, and decimals.

I learnt how to do this type of maths strategy because if I got given this without  knowing anything I would have know idea what to do.


i had trouble with percentages  because before I started I wasn't the best with them.

KORU GAMES

the activity I did was football


One of my highlights were being undefeated  because our school has never done that in a sport yet and we were the first Oaklands team to do that. My second highlight was when i crossed the ball to Jake with my left foot because I can't cross and the fact that I did it with my left foot is a highlight. 

I am proud of winning Koru Games because our school football team has never done that before. 

Some advise for next years year 7's is to play fair.
