Kia ora welcome to my forst blog post of 2018. These past two weeks have been fun and busy . We have already done so much work that I get to share with you.
For maths we have done lots of work sheets focusing on using algorithms. We have done 4 digit by 4 digit subtraction with borrowing, 2 digit by 2 digit multiplaction, 2 digit by 1 digit multiplacation, Adding deciamls, Subtarcting decimals and short divison. My favourite one was 2 digit by 2 digit multiplacation and Adding decimals. We also have started to do a basic facts test every morning. We have 100 mixed basic facts to complete in 5 minutes. My highest that I got was 100/100 in 1:27.
For the next six weeks we are doing Poetry Anthology. I have already completed all 3 of my Acrostic Poems. I did one on the Beach one callled Tropical and one called Summer. My favourite one is Tropical because it has lots of descriptive words. What one was your favourite? One thing that I struggled with was trying to find some words to start the sentence off so I went to a dictonary and found some words that helped me.
For art we had to do a digital collage on us. We were not allowed to get photos off the internet they had to be photos of you or photos, you or your parents have taken. I really enjoyed doing this but the one thing that was hard was trying to fit all of my pictures into one google drawing. I completed it in the end and here is the finsihed product.

For the past 2 weeks we have had to write a report on either the Eyes, Heart or Pancreas. Ella and I decided to do the Pancreas . We had to do alot of research and I found out so much information. Here is the finished product hope you like it.
Ella and Mya
The Pancreas Is a large gland behind the stomach and next to the small intestine. Your pancreas does 2 main jobs such as breaks down food that has left the stomach and also releases insulin into your bloodstream and help regulate blood sugar levels. Do you know that you could live without your pancreas but you will need to be on a lot of pills.
The Pancreas regulates your blood sugar levels. If your Pancreas doesn’t function normally you could become a diabetic. Diabetes is a disease that is caused because your Pancreas is unable to regulate the insulin that your body produces. Insulin regulates many metabolic process cells with needed energy and is important for your overall health. Type 1 Diabetes is most known to need Insulin. Insulin helps keep your blood sugar levels down. If you don’t take Insulin or eat too much food and do not do enough exercise and you have type 1 diabetes and your sugar levels are over 240 they are too high. When your sugar levels are too high the process of you feeling very ill comes along slowly and eventually you will pass out. As soon as you feel ill you need to ring the ambulance or inject yourself with insulin.
If you smoke cigarettes it doubles the risk of getting Pancreatic Cancer. If you get diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer the treatment includes surgically removing the pancreas , radiation and chemotherapy but otherwise than that there is no other treatment and if it doesn’t work you will eventually die. There is no symptons in the early stages but when it gets to the later stages the symptoms are loss of appetite and loss of weight. Eventually you will not be able to feed yourself and people will have to feed you. To know if you have Pancreatic Cancer it moves to the liver and enlarges it and makes lots of pain and loss of appetite. Pancreatic Cancer is very dramatic and a sad time for the person that has it and people that know them.
The Pancreas is an important part of the body that regulates blood sugar levels . Some people can live without the Pancreas but it is an organ that can help keep your body healthy.
