Year 8 Leadership camp part 1

Year 8s camp


At school everyone was getting ready to go camp they were taking their stuff into the hall to put into the bus. Then when the bell rang everyone went into the hall to sit down and listen to Mrs Flavelle so she could tell them which buses they were in. and when she sent them to there buses they had to take some bags with them. Then when everyone finished doing that they went into the bus and sat down .

When we started driving everyone got excited and the bus drive was 2 hours long so most of the students got bored. After that everyone started singing then a few minutes later we arrived at Kawaeranga camp but everyone thought it was gonna be dumb but it turned out good because we had our own group cabins and there were cool activities like go karts, paintball, air rifles, bmx bike track and the little train things.

expo inquiry

Expo/Inquiry
Our group came up with an awesome experiment that includes a lighter and a spray, all you had to do was light the lighter and spray the flame. And it makes a flamethrower



We had not that much ideas one of ours was setting our hand on fire without it hurting , Making paper planes and showing force and motion And Water.



Out of all of our ideas we narrowed it down to one idea which was paper planes because it was easy to explain and make.



Unfortunately it was a fail because all the work we did was all on Arthur’s chromebook and since he left the school, we had nothing to present  and so we had to try figure out another idea which was the paper planes. But then we had nowhere to sit and present our work to everyone so we didn’t get to finish it


The Next Time we can’t do it again because we will be at college and we won't be able to do an expo again, maybe we will do a expo at college if we go to the same collage, maybe.

walter fab fractions

            Fabulous Fractions
We are learning to identify the relationship between equivalent fractions.

What is 4/4 of 8?   This is the same as

What is ⅕ of 10=2

What is ⅓ of 12=4

What is 2/6 of 12=4

What is 1/13 of 26=2

What is 2/26 of 26?13


What do you notice about these fractions?



I have 2/16 of a cake at a birthday party. I keep going back for more and eat another  4/8 of a cake. What fraction of a cake have I eaten altogether?= 10/16

I have 5/20 of a cake left over from the party. Then I give 1/10 of the cake to my sisters. What fraction of a cake do I have left over? = 3 3/20


½ + 2/4 = 2/4 = ½ ½ + ½ = 1 whole  

3/6 + ⅔ = 1 1/6

⅕ + 2/10 = 4/10

⅙ + 4/12 = 6/12

⅕ + 1/15 =  4/15

1/8 + 1/72 = 10/72

1/9 + 1/18 = 3/18

⅕ + ⅙ = 11/30

1/7 + ⅕ = 12/35

fractions finale 2

Fractions Finale



I want to add ½ with ¼. First I change ½ to  then I add


⅓ + ⅙. ⅓ =  2/6 2/6 + ⅙ = 3/6

¼ + ⅛.  ¼ = 2/8 2/8 + ⅛ = ⅜


How can I change ⅔ into sixths (4 /6)? 4/6


How can I change ⅔ into twelfths ( 4/12) 4/12


⅓ + ¼ = 7/12


⅓ = 2/6   ¼ = 2/8


⅓ + ⅕ = 8/15


⅓ = 2/6   ⅕ = 2/10


⅙ + ⅛ = 16/56
⅙ = 2/12    ⅛ = 2/16


1/10 + 1/100 = 10/100


1/10 + 1/1000 = 100/1000


⅓ + 1/7 = 10/21


¼ + ⅕ = 9/20


⅓ + ⅖ = 11/15


List 5 equivalent fractions for:


¼ = 2/8


⅓ = 2/6


⅕ = 2/10


⅙ = 2/12
