Advice for yr7

The school rule is that you wear different shoes and socks depending on a season and girls have to have their hairs up because of the nits(for yourself). You bring your PE shirt to school everyday and you wear your shorts inside your skirts/shorts. Don't wear a wrong earrings and don't wear nail polish to school. Don't forget your hat on summer and don't spin them. Don't be crazy in front of our class because there is Mr Diver's office. Don't bring your cellphones, get changed in the class, use the rimu toilets. Hate Totara

Our Movie Challenge

Last week, our class and room 41 did a movie challenge together. Everyone worked in a group of 6, and we had to make a movie about drugs and alcohol. Each group had to include two girls and a cookie pad somehow in the movie and of course drugs and alcohol. Now I am going to make a reflection about our movie. Our movie was about a new boy in a school meeting some friends and getting into the wrong path. Our sound quality was good overall, but I had to talk way more loudly. The camera was still and nice but we needed some various angles to support our story flow. The boys' acting skill was so good and they didn't look at the camera. Our editing skill was pretty good. They didn't interrupt the watcher's focus on the movie. The poem didn't really make sense and we didn't have the voiceover to cover it. The message in the movie was overally good although it was quiet a bit cliche. Our teamwork didn't work out that well because the girls were a lot out during the script making.

Multiply trick

Today our class watched a simple maths trick video. It said that you can multiply by drawing lines. First, if you have an equation that is 16 by 11, you first take the 1 from 16 so draw one line horizontally in the middle and take the 6 from 16 and draw 6 lines by 1 line leaving some space between the two. Next, for the 11, draw one line the opposite way from 16. Then draw another line leaving the space between them. After that, you have to divide it to 3 sections. Draw the dots where the lines meet across and then draw a semicircle on the far left dot and far right dots. Add the numbers of the dots section by section. So it would be one on the left side and 7 in the middle and 6 on right. The answer would be 176.

Here is what I did.
