Task Description: This is my animation on How Does A Guitar Make Sound? This is my extension project finished.

Thank You Writing! Athletics Day Highlights.

 Walt: using descriptive language.


Here's some of the highlights from the Year 6 Boys. All credits to Mr Goodwin.



Dear Teachers, Parents and Helpers, Thank You for giving up your time and helping us with Athletics Day. It was an great day but it wouldn’t happen with you guys. I hope you enjoy this writing for you!

Athletics day is when the whole school comes together to compete and play sports. Everyone comes to school in their house colours. I was in Hokule’a (Green). The whole school gets put into their Years. I was in the Year 6 girls. Every Time we finish an activity Mr Jacobsen blows the bugle for the 5’s up and that means we have to change and move on to the next activity. If we come 1st, 2nd, 3rd and sometimes 4th in one of the activities we get to compete in the eastern zone. We compete against different people from other schools.


My favorite part of the day was Sprints! After morning tea time all the Year 6 girls had to go and line up for Sprints. I had lot’s of butterflies in my stomach and I did not know what to do. We were put into lines and we had to race the person in whichever line we were in. Overall I came 3rd in the 100m race and I was super happy!  

Next year my goal is to came 1st, 2nd or 3rd in next year’s activities. I am also hoping to get a better result in next year's athletics especially shot put, sprints, discus and javelin. I also want to get into more
sports next year so I can get better and better at sports.

It was an awesome day at athletics. I learned that when you are positive in sports you’ll get a good result, and that is what I learnt at athletics. I’d like to say another big thank you to all the parents and supporters. This could’ve not happen with you!

Times Tables Maths Test!

This is just a screenshot of what I did in my Times Tables Maths Test.


Musical Madness!


Walt: use adjectives to improve our descriptive writing.
WALT: use exciting language in a recount

Screen Shot 2017-10-11 at 2.39.29 PM.png


Have you ever seen your teacher sing before? Well today at our school Immersion Assembly, lot’s of music was happening in the hall! I’m looking forward to how the term is going to be!

This term our school topic is based on Music, and it is called Musical Madness! Team 1,2 and 3 was all about how music changes our feelings and how different beats can make up one song. Team 5’s crazy act was all about different beats to music! The Assembly was hilarious but my all time favorite act was Team 3’s little movie they made a mini Songs in Real Life video. It was an incredible video that  made me laugh the till the end.  



Finally it was Team 4’s turn! Team 4’s movie was a little car pool party! All the teachers from Team 4 were having fun singing in the car enjoying the music (but some of the music was boring because they were old school). The little movie was like a commercial for our school music. It was kind of like the commercial’s that Apple does for there music. This Term our Team is looking at making our own music, and even making instruments!



Since the Term is all about music I am dying to learn to play the Guitar! I also want to learn to play the drums and I think our Team Leader Mr Somerville will teach us because he is fantastic at playing the drums! Those are the instruments that I want to play but I’m also hoping to learn to play the piano along with other instruments too.

Overall I think that the Term will be awesome! I love music and I’m sure other people in the school do. I think that school and music goes together because her in Pt England we make up songs and sing to other songs too! In fact we already got school song already up called Musical Madness! I think that Term 4 will be great!

Today I went to AUT with mum! But let me go back to the start. Today I had to wake up early @ 5:00 am. I was so tired because I don't really wake up early. I'm a sleeper! Anyways me and my mum woke up early and got ready. I packed lunch, My Chromebook (So I can do some learning there + So I'm not bored) and Earphones. Today I went to AUT with mum! But let me go back to the start. Today I had to wake up early @ 5:00 am. I was so tired because I don't really wake up early. I'm a sleeper! Anyways me and my mum woke up early and got ready. I packed lunch, My Chromebook (So I can do some                                                                                             learning there + So I'm not bored) and                                                                                                                                                               Earphones. 
After that me and my mum walked from home all the way to the Pamure Bus Stop. When we went inside the bus it was a bit crowded there. The bus kept on moving on and on and lot's of people almost lost there balance. Then we came to our destination. Me and my mum head off the bus and head to AUT. First we arrive in the Library. My mum goes on a computer and continues of with her study. Well I was just on my Chromebook chilling with my head phones on. I thought that the Library was a good start to the day for the students so they can re-fresh there minds and focus on there
Study. Just like us at school! Everyday we also start silent
reading so we can be focused on work!







Our next stop was going to my mums lecture (Pasty). My mum was the only one there and it was a very quiet room. I was again just chilling and going on my Chromebook and video chatting with my friends. I had a little giggle but my mum told me to stop it. I looked out the window and I saw an amazing view. I forgot that we were on very high above ground. When I looked down I was very surprised because I've never been that high above ground ever since I went to the Sky Tower! I really enjoyed looking out the window that was one of my best bit's there.



After that me and my mum was hungry! So we decided to go look around and we saw a mini station with food. I saw lot's of people coming because the food was delicious. It was only 5$ for 1 and then you can come back for seconds for free! Me and my mum ate Curry (I love Curry!), Rice and lettuce with a bit of sauce. It was DELICIOUS! I really enjoyed eat the food. After a long time of studying me and my mum went to the parents room. This room is just for the parents who study in AUT to come with here kids and just relax. They also have a computer in case there students want to do there work! I was there and I slept for a pretty long time my mum did too! I thought that it was great @ AUT! I really enjoyed the trip! Anyways hope you enjoyed my trip to AUT!

Holiday Blogging - Stick Figures (Extra Task)

Walt: Create an animation
Task Description: Today's task is all about Stick Figures. This is a extra task from the Team 4 Holiday Blogging Challenge. Our task was to create a animation of a Stick Figure. I decided to make animation of a Stick Figure swimming. I used a site called Toonator to create my animation. I then recorded my animation using Screencastify.

Holiday Blogging - Stick Figures! (Task 3)

Walt: Draw Stick Figures.
For today's Team 4 blogging challenge we are learning about Stick Figures. A Stick Figure is a very simple drawing of and person and an animal. Stick Figures a five straight lines and four curved lines. So it has a few lines, curves and dots. On this photo above I drew nine Stick figures. I drew some Stick Figures doing Sport, Running, Doing the splits and a few more. One of the tips I used was for the legs. When drawing a Stick Figure you always need to make your legs a little bit longer because it is actually how us humans look like our legs are a little but longer then our body. But don't make it too long all else it will just look weird. Another tip I used was for the face. You can make your face a circle or another shape. But you should use a Oval as your face. Why..Well that's how us humans face looks like an Oval. Those were just some of the tips and tricks I used for the Stick Figures.

Task Description: This is the 3rd task for our Team 4 Holiday Blogging challenge. I had to read a text on Wikipedia about Stick Figures. I then watched a video on how to draw a Stick Figure and tips and tricks on it. I then practiced a little bit on different actions on a Stick Figure. I then drew nine Stick Figures. I also had to share the tips I used to create the Stick Figures so other people can try!

Here are the results!

So our first question was which of these TV shows belong to New Zealand. The three that were right was Shortland Street, Tagata Pasifika and Police Ten 7! Most people voted for Shortland Street. I was so surprised when people thought that That's So Raven and Fuller House was made from New Zealand because that was way off!
Our second question was What is your Favorite Movie. Two people voted for blue. I don't even know what movie that is. One voted for ghost. Two voted for Fast and Furious. One voted for the Emoji Move and another voted for ANY, and the last vote was Star Wars and I know that's my teachers favorite movie because I sent it to him!


Our Next question was What's the best food you ever had in your life. I was super surprised because I thought some people would vote for Mc Donalds but KFC was the one and I know because it's "Finger Licken Good!". But the one the was the most which 75% was Everything. But a few people did vote for the good old Chicken.
The Last question was What is your favorite sport. 12.5% voted for Basketball which is a great sport. But Rugby beat it by 25%, and 62.5% voted for Netball. I know why most people voted for Netball because I mostly sent it to girls!

Happy School Holidays/Term 3 Reflection!


HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

Hello Viewers! Happy Holidays! Today I am so excited because it's the start of the school holidays. I will still be finishing off work because I have a lot of work from Maths to catch up on so in the holidays you will be seeing a lot of Maths presentations going on. Anyways I thought that Term 3 was AWESOME! We finally got to go on a trip to Star Wars some of us got to make rockets and fly them and lot's more fun things that happen in Term 3. I think that Term 3 was one of my favorite terms. When I found out that our theme was Guardians of the Galaxy I hardly knew ANYTHING about space. I did not even know that there were even 8 planets in the solar system. Once we did a quick quiz about space to see how well some of us know about space. One of the questions were how many planets are in the solar system and I thought that there were 10. When we looked at the results it said 1% voted for 10, and that was a pretty embarrassing moment! Term 3 really helped me learn more about space and other things like the sun! I can't wait to blog this holiday. I am going to be participating in the Team 4 blogging challenge. I hope everyone has a very happy holiday! Goodbye!

3rd Paideia Seminar Reflection





On Tuesday the year 5&6 extension group had their 3rd Paideia Seminar. A Paideia Seminar is when we all come together and discuss a statement that is given to us by our teachers. Our statement for the paideia seminar was: Is being civilised a good thing!


I think being civilised is a bad and good thing and it’s like somewhere in the middle. Being civilised can be like a bad thing to some people because you can lose your identity and your ancestors ways. For example back in the days in like the islands they used to use wood to heat their food. Nowadays people use stoves and other technology. The good thing is that we need a change in our lives. We need forks and knives instead of using your hands which can spread germs and other things.


During the Paideia Seminar I think I did a little less talking then I did in the 2nd Paideia Seminar. I did my best and I did tried to encourage others to speak but other people spoke over those ones who needed to speak. I think the people who did less talking last time has improved Paikea provided good information about our group. I think it was really hard linking to each others idea's for me and challenging other people. I think that I should've talked a little bit more about the statement because I hardly talked about Is being civilised such a good thing. I also thought that I should've just said what I felt inside of me about the statement and our planet.

I was too scared to say what I really felt about  being civilised. Next time I think I should ask people if they can clarify what they're talking about because I think that I talked less last time is because I did not get some of the things other people were talking about. The other thing I would like to do is share my information I had already had because during the seminar I made up what I was saying instead of using the information that I had already. This is my reflection about our 3rd Paideia Seminar!

The first thing we had to write was the Introduction, Before the Race, During the Race, After The Race and Conclusion. I then posted this on my blog with a photo from the event and here it is!

Rubric score for Extension!

Rubric Score Reflection:

After reading the rubric I found out that my score was 27. I thought that the scores were fair because the people in my group scored around 20 to 27. I think that being the leader of my group helped me improve my score by taking idea’s from the people in my group and making a great project. I scored a 5 in my performance contribution to the production. My goal for that is to stay there and help others get a 5 too! For Collaboration I think that we did well but I think that we should work harder together at a team so that we could get a 5. In the paideia seminar I contributed a lot. My goal for that is to not just encourage the people that are not in my group but to encourage the people in my group because two of them only got a 2 in the paideia seminar. Now I’ve learnt the things that I need to improve at and how I did in the rubric!

We are making 5 picture books from each group. We have to go to each others blog and read each others piece of writing. After we've chosen the story there will be the writers, the illustrators and the designers! Then that will be the end of our project!

Measuring our Feet!

Walt: Understand Measurement

Task Description: Today for Maths Pongs did a topic about Measurement. We had to place our feet on our Maths book and draw an outline of it. It was really funny. We then took a ruler a measured our foot. Mine was 21 cm it might not be the proper measurement but that's all we can do. After that I had to walk beside Naomi ( My Partner ) and counted every time I steeped. If you don't get me look at the photo on the left. Anyways from my side of the whole thing she was about a 7 of my feet. After that I did all the maths up here on this photo as you can see. I added a photo of the foot I drew and put and example of what we did on the left. Hope you enjoy!

How to remember the Planets in the Solar System!

Walt: understand information collected from multiple sources.


Task Description: This week Room 7 Literacy had to make a little rhyme that will help you remember the order of the 8 planets in the solar system. This week we are focusing on Pluto that used to be a planet but now scientists discovered that it was not a planet. So some people can say,"Well it's a planet in my heart"! Well you have to get used to Pluto not being a planet. Anyways I used google to help me find some words. Since Pluto ain't a planet anymore it was kind of hard finding the words but I managed and came up with My Very Educated Mother Just served us Nougat, and if you can see the first letter of each word has the first letters of each planet. For Example: My Very stand for Mercury and Venus. I then added a photo of the solar system without Pluto. I hope this helps you remember each planet in the solar system. Stay tuned for my next post

Solar System!

Walt: understand information collected from multiple sources.



Task Description: Today Room 7 Literacy had to complete a activity about the Solar System. This is my finish look. To start off We had to find images on Explore. Explore is just like Google but when you have an drive there's presentations, Docs and Google draw. At the top of each subject it should say tools then when you click it, it is let's you type up what you want. Anyways going back to the images we had to place all the planets in order starting from the Sun all the way to Neptune. This is not the real size of what the planet is but I tried my best. I then added all the names of the planets just to show you guys the name of each one! I hope you enjoy. Stay tuned for my next blog-post.
