### Reflection for Maths, Week 5

During this week I have been learning to use multiplication to solve addition and subtraction problems where common factors can be found. It was quite hard for me to understand it but I managed a little with the willing help of Mrs Tui and Miss Anderson.
Here is an example.
e.g. 24 + 27 + 22 + 28 = 4 × 25

### Tweety falls down

There was a little bird named Tweety. She fell out of her nest and onto the ground. Tweety cried and cried, but no one heard her. Just then Earl the squirrel came and suggested that she should try climb the tree. Tweety tried but she couldn't get any grip on the tree. Suddenly Mat the cat came and said to Tweety she should try flapping her wings. Tweety flapped her wings and to her amazement she started to fly up into the sky. She landed safely into her nest and chirped happily. Tweety was relieved. She lived happily ever after.

#### John Chapter 21. John Chapter 21 tells us how Jesus appeared to his disciples the 3RD time.One day a few of his disciples went out fishing. Simon Peter believed that he could catch some fish, but he caught none. A man then appeared to them. Simon Peter knew it was the Lord. Jesus told them to cast the net to the right side of the boat. They as what Jesus had suggested. As they cast the net to the other side there were too many fish.As said before, this was the third time Jesus appeared to his apostles.

During Religious Education we have learned a new strand for the term. We have been learning more about Easter. Easter is a very special and important event. It is when Jesus rose again from the dead. We need to remember that Jesus is with us now and always. He is our guide through spirit.
Here is my title page for our Easter strand.

### My Holiday

During my holidays, I went to the community holiday programme. It was held in the parish hall. I was leading the games, with the willing help of Sefo and Olalini. I was Halamehi’s assistant.

After prayers, we got started. “Listen up everyone”, I yelled. “Leaders, 8 little kids for Cat & Mouse”. “Quick, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1,” I gasped. Both teams were settled. They were ready to start. “On your marks, get set, GO”, Sefo and Lini shouted. Simeone ran as fast as he could. He tried to escape from the Crazy Smurf runners. Crazy Smurfs, struggled to get him out. Both teams cheered. They chanted so loud, my ears were so sore.

Time came by. We played more games. We played Dodge ball, Jockeys and many more fun games. Both teams became true competitors. Tick Tock, went the clock. It was lunch time. Halamehi dished out the food and handed it out. “ You can play after your finish guys, I shouted. “45 minutes to play”.

Time passed quickly. “5 minuted to go guys”. The clock striked 1:30. “Everyone inside now”, I screamed at the top of my lungs. When everyone was inside, I could see sweat dripping down peoples foreheads. I said to myself, “Gross”.

Next we played more games. People got more sweaty and exhausted. As time passed, it was time to end the day. To end the day off, we said prayers. Straight after prayers, everyone walked their directions, heading for their next destinations. “Bye guys”, I yelled.
