Orion's Hangi Instructions

Hi I am Orion. Today I taught kotuku about hangi, this is the story.
First we put rocks in a fire to make
them hot. Then we dug a hole and 
put the hot rocks in the hole and put
vegetables and meat in the hole. Then we put wet sacks in  the hole and put dirt on the top of the hangi and wait. As we wait there are people called
steam patrol. They make sure that
no steam gets out of the hole.
5 hours later the food is served. Yum!

One Square Metre

The class made a 10,000cm square because we are working on area. Some of us didn't think that it would be 10,000 square cm blocks. We also had a black piece of paper which is 30cm x 30cm and the area of it was 900 square cm.

Castles Completed

Both teams worked feverishly to complete their castles, and here are the finished products. After our accurate measuring, we worked out the area of the square towers using the formula for finding area. Area = length x width.
The formula for finding the area of the whole circular castle is pi x radius squared.

And the winner be announced soon.

Netball game

On Thursday at netball practice, I was chosen to play G.A 'goal attack for Saturday's game.
Before the game on Saturday Mum made me shoot 100 hoops but I didn't get them all in.
We played against Broadgreen Intermediate . I was really nervous. The final score was 10 all.
I shot nine of the ten goals which was pretty good.
Our team is called Mapuana, we have players from Mapua and Mahana.
When I got home Dad said I did well and it must have been "because I did all that practice".
