Amelia Newspaper Article!

Walt: think critically about what we read.
Task Description: For today's task we got to write our own Newspaper article. Sorry I have not been posting lately, but I am still very excited to explain this task! Before writing our article and that we read a story about girl who saw a octopus and found out that it was a dirty old cloth! After reading the text we decided to make our own front-page headline! As you can see I called mine BIZARRE OCTOPUS SIGHTINGS! We also got to make up a Newspaper name I called mine "NZ DAILY NEWS" and added a little fern to the side! I then wrote my article about the story and made it look PROFESSIONAL for my audience! I then added a image to show proof (Not real) and added a link to it. Enjoy!

Walt: solving fractions. 

Task Description: This is my maths presentation from week 5! I know I'm late with maths but just stick with it. At the moment we have been learning fractions. This is just a presentation about fractions. So what I do is I read the problem then figure out the problem on paper.

Creating my own Kayak!

Walt: make connections with what we already know with what we read.


For my kayak I have chosen Slalom C1 and colored my base a light yellowish type, and my outline is a gradient smooth brown color. I decided to make my kayak a islander type, so I added coconut colored flowers to it and some orange and yellow stars to finish it off. I think I would recommend this kayak for kids around the age of 9+. Why I chose the age of 9 up is because from my perspective it’s more safer to start at an age around that time also you’ll have a better experience. It’s also recommended for it’s design too - It’s not too loud but great!

Task Description: For today's task our focus are on kayaks! This is just a task creating my own kayak and writing about so that the person reading it wants to buy the kayak. But before that I had to be an kayak expert (Not really) and read two readings which helped me understand what a kayak is and the basics and much more! We then had to create our own design of a kayak. After creating our kayak we then had to write a description for the people we think would like to buy it.

Dear Diary (Traveling)

Walt: think critically about what we read.

Task Description: This is my Dear Diary! This is kind of the same as my previous task, instead it shows how technology has changed. I had to read 3 texts in order for me to understand this activity. I had to write a diary about my trip on the plane to Samoa and a diary for Afu about his trip on the waka! ( PS: If you don't understand this please look a my previous blog-post). Overall I think this was a great task and I learned much about it! I hope you enjoy!

Travel Past vs Present!

Walt: think critically about what we read.
Task Description: For this task we are learning about how people have traveled changed through time. In order for me to understand this activity I had to read a text about sailing back in the days and try to make connections through it. In this activity it show's how me and Afu have the differences on traveling to a place. Example: I would use the plane and Afu would use like a waka to go to wherever he is voyaging to. I had to write about write about what kind vessel will I use for me and my family, How long will my journey will take, and what would I do during the trip. I had to write this down for each me and Afu on how it's going to be like. I think I learned lot's by reading just that reading but I will of course learn more from the others. Overall I think this was a great activity that I had done. Enjoy!

Have you ever eaten homemade ice cream before? Well this is our side of the story on how me made homemade ice-cream at school. We started off by writing down the ingredients and the equipment we needed to make our homemade ice-cream. Some of the ingredients included sugar, Milk, Ice Cubes and Biscuits. As we read and wrote down the things we needed to make our homemade ice-cream we felt so excited about how it is going to end up like! The whole of Room 7 participated into making our Ice-cream. After we gathered up our ingredients we started to shake the ice-cream inside two ziplock bag, It was hard work! After that Mrs Stickland said whoever is finished sit down and get ready for your biscuits. I made my ice-cream by making it look like a ice-cream sandwich. Then for the final step we opened our mouths CRUNCH!!! It was a no for me sorry! I think we messed up and somehow got the salt inside the ice-cream! But at least it was a great day.
