Another Shape
This is another block building that I have done. 2 blocks deep and 6 blocks wide, and 3 on the side.   2x6x3=36

Optimist Yachting and Kayaking Day 1

Yachting day 1 by Braeden Foster on GoAnimate

This is a GoAnimate that I made about the first day.

Reflection for Yachting and Kayaking
Something I was pleased with was how Matthew helped me when we were in the optimist yacht, because I had no idea how to sail an optimist yacht.
I really enjoyed learning how to sail a yacht and a kayak because it was a fantastic experience for me and it was awesome.

Something I found hard was to sail the yacht the correct way and not go overboard. I found this hard because sometimes we were just sitting there and not moving.
Something that made me think was why we had to put our right had on the blue tape when we had to go kayaking. This made me think because on other kayaks they don’t have the blue tape.

Something I want to get better at is to sail the yacht because I got confused doing it.

My Net


If I covered  it with gold paper I would use the following formula: h x l

5cm x 5cm = 25cm squares. 6 x 25= 150 square cm of gold paper.


The volume of my cube is length x height x width = 5cmx5cmx5cm=125cm 3.

This is a picture of 1cm cubes. If I had 4 more layers of this I could make the other cube. This shows 5 lots of 5. If I had another 4 lots like this, it would make 125 cubes all together.

Egyptian Cartouche

Try making your own Cartouche!

This is an Egyptian Cartouche. To pronounce it you say: B-R-A-D-N. When my name is spelled, Braeden. The Egyptian language is very different to the language that we use.  We use letters and they use pictures called hieroglyphics. This is my Cartouche made with pastel and dye..

Camp Kaitawa Rata Tree

This is an art work that room 20 has done. This one here is my one. I used water colours and a sharpie pen.I think it looks like a Rata Tree, do you?
 This is what a Rata Tree is meant to look like.

Camp Senses poem

I see: Glow Worms sparkling in the dark
I Hear: People cheering other people in handball
I Smell: Delicious pancakes sizling in the pan
I Taste: The scrumscious pancakes in my mouth
I Feel: The freezing water when I went kayaking
I Think: Camp Kaitawa was an amazing place.

Stop Motion Animator

This is a Stop Motion video. To do it you need to download the stop motion player. With this one here, I took three photos at once. It is a really fun thing to do in raining days, in the weekends and even in the school holidays. Mohit and I had created this one here.

Mysterious Creature

This is my report about the imaginary creature called the Chimp Dog.

Class Production

On Friday 24th May it was room 20’s turn to do an assembly item. We did a play on Gondwanaland. My part in the play was being India, this is my line. “I think I’ll float off this way, where it’s nice and warm, see ya.”
I didn’t know what the best part of the production was, because I was away when we were doing it on the day. I really wanted to do the play but I had sprained my ankle. It wasn't very nice having a sprained ankle. There were heaps of characters in the play such as kiwi's, Hedgehogs and even a stoat. My favourite one was the Monkey. I liked the Monkey’s line because it was really funny.

Its Not Easy Being A Book

Its not easy being  a book because,
I get torn and ripped, by rough human hands.
My colour fades all the time and pages get folded over and used for bookmarks.
Kids draw on me and hot coffee gets all over my pages, and I get crumbs and food on me.
I get thrown around by mean hands.
I get put in boring old bookshelves and dust gets all over me and I start to sneeze, but when I get picked to get read I get really excited.
I don’t like being a book!!!

Building a Fort

Building a Fort

“Have you ever built a fort before? I Have.” “Once  I tried to build a fort all by myself,and this is how I did it.” “I gathered up some sticks and twigs and started to build it.” “It went  ok but it kept falling down and crashing.” “I sprinted inside and yelled out to Mum, MUM CAN I HAVE SOME GLUE!!! She said yes,thank you I said a bit quieter.” “So I came back outside and glued the sticks and twigs together, it still wouldn't stay together.”
“Man it was soooo hard.” “So after a while I   gave up and did something else.” “I went to my room and wanted to play on my playstation two, but my lazy Dad was on it,so I asked him if I could have a turn on it and he said after me,and when he says after me he means tomorrow,well that sucks.” “So I decided to go on my scooter,but my little sister Riana was on it, IS THERE ANYTHING THAT I CAN DO!!! I said to myself. So then my Dad came and said to me do you want to come help me with the barbecue, and I said yes.” “Finally,about time that I got to do something that didn't involve some that was too hard.

As you can see I didn't get to build the fort.

How to round

How to Round

  1. Example: Round 6 to the nearest 10.
Options are 0 or 10 the right one is 10. Because 5 or lower is 0, Otherwise if its 6 or higher it would be 10 if you get it then here are some more.

  1. Round 74 to the nearest 10
  2. Round 48 to the nearest 10
  3. Round 21 to the nearest 10
  4. Round 89 to the nearest 10
  5. Round 38 to the nearest 10

Now lets round to the nearest 100

  1. Round 168 to the nearest 100
  2. Round 134 to the nearest 100
  3. Round 127 to the nearest 100
  4. Round 123 to the nearest 100
  5. Round 164 to the nearest 100

I hope this maths made you get better at your rounding. If your want to do more rounding go to you-tube, then type in rounding rap, then click the first one and away you go learning to do your rounding.

Mystery Person

Mystery Person

I have black, short, straight hair. I have brown eyes and light brown skin. I am sprinkled with freckles but mostly on my face. My long legs are like the sky tower. I have middle sized arms like my Dad and two twinkly feet that are very quick.
Can you guess who I am ?

Is this me?
