functions and for loops in code

Image result for for loopImage result for function

In extension today we are looking at functions and for loops in code, today I am going to be explaining what a function and for loop. for example a function is a piece of code that you can easily call over and over again. it includes the specific steps performed in the function. A loop is a repetitive action or command typically created with programming loops, or runs a block of code over and over for a set number times.also a for loop called also be used in dance moves like the whip and nae nae every time you repeat the dance move it is called a for loop.

How to save money

How to save Money: By Naomi penu

DO you know how to save money? Why is money so important to us? Do you want to learn how to save money? If so, you’ve come to the right place.

Firstly, you can start by using less power and less water usage. By using less power and water it saves you from paying a lot of money for the bills. This means you can make a limit of how long you can go on social media or how long you have a shower.

You can also save money by sticking to a budget.  For example you can have a limit on what you want to buy and how much you want to spend. Also sticking to a budget means you can’t spend over the amount you put down, Because you put it there for a reason. But don’t spend it on things you don’t need only spend it on the things you need.

Lastly you can get a savings account. You can have one spending account and one savings account by having a savings account you can put money in, BUT DON’T TAKE IT OUT! You can spend it but only for a good reason.

These are my points on how to save money and if you follow these steps then you might be able to save money. If these points helped you i would be really happy but if they don’t…. I’m just a kid!

task description: this task is an explanation writing task. we had to explain to the reader what we were going to do and also use some good connectives as well. this task was also about how to save money and it was really hard, for a person who usually spends all there allowance.

My visual Mihi

This is my visual mihi. what is a visual mihi? well a visual mihi is what you like and where you come from. A mihi is just the same thing but you say it a visual mihi is where you can see/draw your mihi.  My first one is my culture and my culture is Tongan and I didn't  do all of them because I have heaps. the second one is my family and I put them there because they are very special to me. the third one is about god and jesus because I believe in god so of course I would put the cross in and gods name. the fourth one, mostly everyone loves it.... FOOD! I put it there cause without it I wouldn't be living right now. but overall all of the things I put on represents me and what I believe in.

Me , Hinerangi and Bethan's swift playground work

Bethan’s review of commands and functions:
Commands and functions are very important things in code that lets start with commands. Commands are the instructions we use to control anything we want on the computer, ipad, or even your mobile phone but in our case we were using a little character called Byte. To control Byte we had to make him follow our commands when we put in more than one we made a sequence. A sequence is a group of commands put together to make a set of instructions. Functions are a group of commands put together to make one command so before we we had turn right we only had turnleft so that was when we added them together three times and created turnright.

Naomi’s review on the commands and functions:
My experience on swift playground was very easy on commands. But when we pasted commands we went to functions but I know functions are supposed to be helpful but it was kind of tricky. The only reason why it was tricky was because we were kind of used to commands and the function just messed up the code so we had to find a code that included the functions and our commands.But overall it was fun and had a lot of thinking involved.

Hinerangi’s review on code commands and functions:
These type of codings especially commands and functions was very hard but at the same time it was a bit easy. The commands and functions on swift playground can be a bit hard but it is very important that you understand it which is what myself and my teammates need to improve on. Command means a type of instruction which tells specifically what a computer, tablet and a phone needs to do. Overall it was awesome and fun especially having to work as a team / group, as well as having everyone communicating in these types of code.

first post for 2018

Image resultwelcome to 2018 and to start off the great year I learnt a lot in Maths and literacy. I have 6 lovely teachers in our team. in literacy we learnt the the real meaning of the treaty of Waitangi. but also we read a story called the wave and we had to answer a variety of questions but I did not quite finish it. In maths we learnt squared roots and    and we did a problem solving thing that evolved us using four 4's and using equations to get the numbers 1-20. if you do not know what I am talking about I am so sorry it is because i thought it was something fun to share But I couldn't explain it properly.    That is some of the stuff I learnt this week.


Task description:
this is all about the start of the year and what I have learnt so far. it has been a great start of the year and this is my first post for 2018. I learnt a whole lot and I think that I am getting the hang of being in the intermediate block.

Day 1 bonus activity SLJ

Bonus Activity: In Flanders Fields

As the new century dawned, New Zealanders settled into a period of relative calm. The calm lasted for about 15 years but came to a sudden end in 1914 when World War I erupted in Europe. The war lasted for almost five years and claimed the lives of 18,000 New Zealanders.

It also claimed the lives of thousands of men and women from countries around the world. Every year, we remember these brave men and women on ANZAC Day (25 April). Many people go to a special Anzac Day ceremony where they read a special poem that was written for the fallen soldiers. The poem is called ‘In Flanders Fields’ by John McCrae.

Read the poem. On your blog, tell us what you think of the poem. Do you like it? How does it make you feel?

It makes me feel very lucky to live in a beautiful, safe country like New Zealand. It also makes me feel sad for those who died in the war and for their families. I think that we are very lucky that they went to war and fought for our freedom. What do you think?

I think that the poem was good and meaningful it makes me feel very lucky that we have people brave enough to risk their lives for us. but also it makes me feel sad because of all the people risking their lives for us and I think their family's would have been sad that their loved one has pasted but have pasted for a good reason.
Task description: This is my bonus task and it is about anzac and about this poem. The poem is about the people who risked their lives for us and I have all the information in the paragraph that I just wrote.
