A great way to learn about decimal place value and subtraction.

NZ Maths

"Decimal Cards Game
Choose a target decimal number (eg 4.825).
Deal each player 6 cards (two more cards than the number of digits in the target number).
Each player has to construct a number as close as possible to the target number. For example if a player is dealt 3, 4, 4, 5, 7, 9 the closest number they can make is 4.795.
The player whose number is closest wins a point.
The winning player chooses the number for the next round."

A great session with kiwi Olympian Rebecca Brothers, about setting goals and working to achieve them.

Image result for richie mccawThe name of my hero is Richie McCaw
Date of birth: 31 December 1980
Place of birth: Oamru New Zealand
Height: 187 cm
Weight: 107 kg
School: Otago Boys High School
University: Lincon University
Wife: Gemma Flynn Married 2017

The reason why Richie is my hero is because he has not only inspired me but hundreds of other people in New Zealand. To try there best in every thing they do especialy when it comes to rugby.
He once had the same goal that most boys in New Zealand have and that is making the All Blacks. He achieved his goal but it took a lot of hard work to get there. What I have learnt from Richie Has really helped me with my rugby learning all of his tricks from watching the All Blacks.

A animals are my favorite topic to study

A Gentoo penguin waddles over rocks, past seals at the Yankee Harbor in the South Shetland Islands, Antarctica. Legions of penguins hurl themselves into the icy waters of Antarctica, foraging to feed their young.
