Math With Mr Tafea

Yesterday, We had a reliever in our class. One of the things we learnt about was fractions, and simplifying them. Firstly he said the simplest fraction could be 1/2. So he wrote up 1/2 + 1/3 = ....
We had to figure it out. I realised if you times the denominators , which would be 2 x 3 = 6, you have a new denominator. /6. Then I thought , and how many sixths make up 1/2 . That would be 3/6. Then I thought again, How much is 1/3 in sixths , that is 2/6 . So then I added 2/6 + 3/6 = 5/6. And that is how I worked out my answer.

Poetry Workshop Part 2

Last week Thursday , I went to my last session in the poetry workshop. First thing we had to do was write 3 adjectives and 3 verbs about ourselves. Next step was to write a poem using the 6 words we listed. Here is my work from part 2 poetry workshop lesson.
I am Anika!

A Learner,

I am a thoughtful thinker who thinks,
I am a silent sleeper who sleeps,
I enjoy eating wicked wings when I can,
I luckily learn what I can everyday,
I am a successful Samoan living her life,
I am a heart-warming happy chappy smiling.

Poetry Workshop

Two weeks ago on Thursday, A bunch of students went to a poetry workshop in the break out room. We learnt about different poems and language we could use. Here is one of my poems I wrote about my church.
Our Church Ways 🙏💕

💕🙏 I see my Pastor as I walk through my church doors,
I see smiles as we sing our church songs,
I see my family as I quietly take a seat,
I see the little children coloring crazily on their study, Activity books,
I see the ladies & men holding little baskets for the offerings,
I see the bibles in people’s helpful hand’s as I scan my enormous eyes around,
I see my shoes as I tilt my head down a bit to pray,
I see new friendly families being welcomed to a seat,
I see Ngola & her niece trying to get Ngola’s naughty nephew asleep,

I see everyone leaving because church is officially over. 🙏💕
