Term 2 Reflections

My highlights for this term were learning about fractions, because Miss Leaupepe taught us a little poem to help us here it is.
When dealing with fractions divide from the bottom and times from the top.

More of my highlights from this term are having special visitors because they always bring cool prizes, but not only that when they are here they also teach us how to successful.

Other highlights that I have for this term were playing netball and only losing 3 or 4 games

My lowlights for this term was nothing because all our learning that we do in the class is fun.

What I am looking forward to playing netball because it will be our last four games for the season
