Ice-cream!

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.

Have you ever been stuck on a mysterious island? As you can see the image at the top looks like someone needs desperate help! If you like to see the story of how I got stuck, But managed to use some technology of my own! Please check this link out!

Task Description: Today the Room 7 literacy got to write a story of there own on how they survived in a island. But as part of this term's topic focus (technology) in our writing we had to include the kinds of technology we used to make homes or even eat food. We also had to include good vocab in our writing so it could stand out! We then buddy checked our writing with another in order to make our writing more sense. We then created out own DLO that goes with our story. You can see mine's on the very top below my WALT. If you would like to read my story please click the link in my writing on top. Enjoy!

Maths Problem Solving!

Walt: understand fractions. 

Task Description: This is a new maths problem from week one! This is overdue work but I will still be explaining how I created this. To start off we always read the problem on the side. Sometimes the problems that we have relates to the things that our teacher (Mr Goodwin) talks about. So we get the knowledge from when we have mat time with our teacher. Then I write down on my maths book how I solved it - How I got the answer. So I take a photo and place it on my presentation. After I re-write how I solved again but in letters. Overall I got the hang of it and was pretty "easy"!

Now That's Thinking!

Walt: Use exciting language!



Writing:


Stepping into the hall I heard bright music, instead the music I heard was about idea’s and thinking! Then I started to look around. There I see Mr Burt using like 3 or 4 netbooks. Wow! From there I sat down still amazed by all the chromebooks Mr Burt had and from there I knew that it is going to be an exciting assembly!

As I was sitting down I see Mr Burt standing in front of our new and extraordinary theme! Yes and it was called Now that's thinking! I started to think about what are the other teams doing that goes with our new topic? We started off with a CRAZY story about Pt England and how they developed different kinds of netbooks. Teams 1-3 were all focusing on the same creative topic with kites, each team had their own movie to represent why there making interesting kites. Well Team 5’s topic was a Bob the builder theme. They were looking at fixing things around there area as we saw from there funny act!

Finally Team 4 my fabulous team are focusing on What kinds of technology the maori used before Pakeha arrived in New Zealand? It kinds of sounds boring to some people but it actually sounds cool and interesting to me! Our movie was kind of like a discussion that our teachers had and came up with hilarious idea’s. They talked about technology in the past like how one of their old phones could not even text! Which was really boring! But they finally came up with one idea after their creative discussion.

As part of Team 4’s topic I am hoping that we actually get to create the things that the maori used as technolgy. I have learnt only a little about the waka’s but I would really love to learn more. I also hope I get to learn about what the other teams are doing, especially the kites!

Overall I think that it is going to be a FANTASTIC term! Thinking about the new term topic makes me think more creatively into things! I also think that  team 4 are going to have so much fun learning about What kinds of technology the maori used before Pakeha arrived in New Zealand? I also can’t wait to see Teams 1 - 3’s amazing kite and the new things Team 5 will be doing to their block, I can’t wait for this extraordinary term.

Task Description: Finally the holidays have ended and we have started off with an fresh start. This terms topic for Pt England school is "Now thats Thinking". Here is my writing I have done. I structured it by talking about every bit well most of the bits that happened. Well team 4 is learning about What kinds of technology did the Maori use before pakeha arrived in New Zealand. I checked my writing carefully to help it stand out! Then I added shots from the day and added them to my writing. I hope you enjoy my piece of writing. Please visit my blog to find out more about Team 4's topic for the term!

This book is about a lovely girl named Iris who wants to be the best rapper and the best ukulele player in the whole entire universe with her bestie Sidney fellow master of the musical universe! There writing a wrap musical about werewolves and vampires! So all they have to do is win the talent show at the mall with the piece. Suddenly life becomes really hard at the point of Iris.

Hanging out in our clean garage!


New Clean Garage!!

Here is a Photo of me and my brother just chilling in our new clean and comfortable garage with my sister and dad in the background. In my previous blog post I was talking about how filthy and yucky it was before. After having a few arrangements it is now a new "home" I would say. I might as well sleep here well if I can. Again it was hard work getting the garage clean and beautiful again. Now I'm just going to take the time to chill in here! 

The Garage Clean out!

The new garage!
All the rubbish


The Garage Clean out:

Today me and my family decided that it was time. It was time to clean up our nasty dirty old garage! Yep that's right we have not cleaned that stinky garage in a while! I remember how many times my mum would say,"I'm going to clean the garage tomorrow or next week". Then that day came but still we did not clean it! As we were preparing I decided to look at how filthy it was. After that my dad started to drag all the bags and clothes out first. I had to walk all the way to the front of the house so I could place all the bags there. After like about 45 minutes the garage was clean like how it used to be. I was happy because I could sleep in there now! It was hard work. Me my mum, dad and sister were doing most of the work. Well my brother was on my Chromebook watching movies. I told him he better thank us for doing the garage, but nothing came out of his mouth. What a naughty boy! Anyways it took a lot of time to suck it in because it was too disgusting!

What is an Estuary?

Tamaki Estuary

What is an Estuary?

As part of the theme for this term Te Taiao o Tamaki we've gathered alot of information like talking about Native trees. Then adding on Native birds and Native bug then the lucky last Ecosystems! So far I've learnt tuns of things like parts of the bugs. But now the last is the estuary's. An estuary is like a tidal mouth of a large river, where the tide meets the stream. For example lets say there polluted water and fresh clean water are on like different sides but there like a middle bit. In that bit all the water meet there and it gets mixed up. So its like well kind of a reunion!

Ambassadors trip to M.I.T!


On a lovely Friday morning the ambassadors got to take a trip to present at M.I.T in Otara. M.I.T is hardworking place where you study. My own mum use to study at M.I.T and I'm sure that she learnt a lot! Anyways the ambassadors got to go on a Tamaki College van to M.I.T and to be honest it smelled like teenagers! So the first thing I said when I hoped in the van was,"Where's the air conditioning?". Well I could not find it. We hoped in the van and Mr Sommerville drove the car but we were missing something. Aha! Music was what we needed. So we sang, chatted and laughed the whole way. Especially when Mr Sommerville was singing! Anyway as we got there we went back to ambassador mode and walked inside the AMAZING building. There we met Mrs Burt who was preparing her stuff. Then after setting up the computers and stuff we presented. I kind of messed up at first but I managed to handle it. As I started speaking I can the that the audience were very respectful and happy. After we finished presenting we said our thank you's. We also got to have delicious treats in a plastic bag and just some water to cool us down. Then we hopped back in the van chatting about the amazing treat we had! As we stopped by at school I already started eating my lollies man I was so hungry! I really enjoyed the trip to M.I.T it was fantastic. Be sure to visit them It's wonderful!

Paidea Seminar discussion!


Maori Tribe photo

Yesterday the whole of the Yr 5&6 extension group had a big discussion about pollution. But before I head straight to that I will be talking about the Yr 5&6 extension group and how it all begin. I am one of the people who were chosen to be in the Yr 5&6 extension group. At the moment me have been learning pollution and how it affects people. During the term how we were learning about pollution we got to choose our own group which talks about the perspective on why we should care about these people or animals. The group names were the Caretakers, Birds/eels, Children, Maori tribe and the Conservationist. I chose the Maori tribe along with 3 others. Why did I chose the Maori tribe? I chose the Maori tribe because I like looking at the way of pollution by a cultural perspective. After all that we begin studying about our groups. I had to study the way the cultural people work with there rubbish but the point of view I'm looking at mostly are how are the Maori people super connected to the land. After finishing the research we begin our big discussion. So yesterday the extension group had a big argument about pollution of there point of view. The rules were every time you talk about something by your perspective you have get to eat one candy. So the argument started of by the Bird/Eels perspective and went one and on. But one thing was that the teachers had to kind of back off because there not the ones talking we are. So the discussion went on and on until all lollies were gone! I got to talk about how pollution is affected by the cultural perspective. I really enjoyed the big discussion.       

Snacking on insects!


Walt: Engage the reader by using interesting vocabulary.


Have you ever ate live or dead crickets before?  Well...as promised today was the day where the class was going to scream, and yes scream but quietly! We are having our own fear factor yes fear factor.


I was so excited but at the same time disgusted. So we started off by sitting in small groups. So I moved with excitement into a group. The Mrs Stickland begin handing out the small but edible crickets, and some mud she took out of her garden and added icing sugar (It was actually nutella).

After all the excitement Mrs Stickland counted the class down. “3 2 1… Go”, said Mrs Stickland. At first everyone paused then I took a cricket dipped it in nutella and I munched it up. It was so a…. Horrifying. I could not take it that I ran to the toilet and wash my mouth thorley. Some of us a 16 crickets! But I ate 2 which was enough for me and my lungs! Please do not do this unless you are a daredevil!

Task Description: Yesterday the class was very luck or should I say cursed? to eat yummy small edible crickets. Yes that's right had our very own fear factor. Here is a story I wrote about the experience we had with those DISGUSTING! crickets. Hope you enjoy

Insect vs spider!

 Walt: write narrative using descriptive language.
Story:

Once in a creepy Monday morning in a garden there lived an insect. It was called the Lady bug stinger. It is a very polite bug…. well sometimes. It is just like the bee and has a stinger! It likes to chill on bright colored flowers in the garden.

Moving on the the Lady bug stinger was just chilling on the bright coloured flowers until the spider caught its prey. The spider is called the Fraud striped spider. It is very viscous and always goes on shifts to find its prey. Well this is its day. The Lady bug stinger jumps from flower to flower without knowing the spider is following.

Suddenly it stops and turns around to look at the Fraud striped spider. The Fraud spider stands right in front of the Lady bug stinger. The Lady bug stinger tries to make itself look like a bodybuilder. It starts to make itself look like it is doing kungfu! The spider heart starts beating. The the insect makes a big sting on the spider's abdomen. With in a second the spider runs away with his fear of the Lady bug stinger. Never to be seen again.

Task Description: Here is a story that I made about my made up insect and spider. I had to create a story about the too of these viscous spiders. At the top I also made up my own poster about the story, and on it says Who will win? Which gives the reader of the story a hint of whats going to happen. I also had to choose a setting where my story is set so I chose the garden because that's where most bugs live in right? Anyways I finish this of by adding a interesting ending to my story. Hope you enjoy!

Amelia Food web

Walt: make connections across multiple texts.



This is my made up food web. If you don't know what a food web is well let me explain. A food web is kind of like a puzzle. So for an example do you see the bird in the top right corner if you can see I've pointed the arrow to the worm which means the bird eats the worm, and as you can see the worm likes eating dirt so the arrow points to the dirt. As you can see I've made connections to each of these images. Now that's what you call a food web. I also added my own spider and insect to my food web but the rest is just a bird, worm and a bee and what they eat. 

Task Description: Since our topic for this amazing term is Te Taio o Tamaki ( The environment of Tamaki ) which means looking after our land. My Literacy class is main focus is about the trees, plants, birds and insects. These are the main things we are focusing on. At the moment our focus is on insects. Today I made up my own food web. To make this food web we conducted research about the insect and what a food web is. After that we found out all about food webs we decided to make our own! This is my food web. I've also added my own spider and insect I made. Read the top for more information.

Amelia Problem Solving

Walt: Solve multiplication problems



Task Description: Here is my problem solving that I have been working on at the moment. Here it was pretty tricky for me to understand but I suddenly got the hang of it, and it became very easy. I am just finishing off work for my teacher which was okay for me because I have spare time. Overall I got the hang of this maths trick and how to solve it. If you don't know how I do this well let me tell you. First I read the problem on the side then write it in my maths book. Then I take a picture of it and then write down on the bottom how I solved it. It's just as simple as that! It's pretty hard to understand but trust me you'll get the hang of it.  

The Fraud Striped spider!

 Walt: make connections across multiple texts



This is my vicious fraud spider and it is called the fraud striped spider. As I said it is vicious. It’s behavior is over the top when it comes to hunting its prey. So do not give it anger management classes. The fraud spider always goes on shifts because it cares about its prey. It is very fast and kind of scary so

WATCH OUT!

Opinions on Weta's

Walt: Make connections across multiple texts


Task Description: Here is a presentation I made. It talks about other people including myself on the opinions on wetas. This was a really cool task to do because it had included myself on what my opinion was about wetas. I think that in the presentation more people liked wetas then to dislike it.

Ambassadors take a trip to N4L!!!


On a wonderful but kind of cold Tuesday the ambassadors got ready to go on a trip to a big and famous building called N4L. N4L stands for Network for learning. They are the people who help the schools network which is really cool! So this is an example of one of the things they do. So N4L has a big screen that shows if there wifi is going down. If it is going down they have to make a solution to fix it and if the WiFi is ready to go and okay GREAT! We had to get to N4L by taxi to the city. The N4L building is set in Parnell. Anyways, as we were driving we were so excited. Then we got out of the taxi and I said goodbye. As I got out I was so stunned by the amazing building. Of course I can't afford something like that! After seeing the building we saw a beautiful lady. Her name was Mrs Stuart. She sent us to a room that is filled with like coding. It was a really quiet room. I started looking around and I saw a lot of people working with, like straight up focus. Then we went to have food! Oh my gosh the food was so delicious. I had quiche which was so amazing and fizzy too! I know I was very lucky. Then after food we had our presentation. I loved the audience at N4L they were so polite and were very funny. I wish I could go there again. After the presentation we gave to them they gave us gifts like the gift card you see  in the picture. We also got to see a car stacker. I would just like to say a BIG BIG thank you to the wonderful people of N4L you guys are amazing!

Amelia - Create you own bug! Lady Bug Stinger

Lady Bug Stinger:

This is my made up insect. It is called Lady Bug stinger! The lady bug stinger is very polite. There just like bee's well kind of. Are you asking why there just like bee's. The Lady bug stinger just like to chill of beautiful bright colored flowers. Like bee's right. If you try to disturb its relaxation time it will totally sting you with its two stingers at the top of its head. So back off! The Lady bug stinger also has a horn as the tip of his bottom. But that's not that bad then the STINGER. In many ways the Lady bug stinger is polite, but do not get on her bad side!

Cicadas


This is a Dog-day Cicada. Which is part of the extreme family of the Cicada.



Who has heard a Cicada before? Well I am hearing one right now. Sometimes Cicadas can be annoying but there are interesting things about it. So the Cicadas are a SUPER family. You want to know why? Because there is a life cycle of Cicadas. I never thought that there would be a life cycle of a Cicada! One thing I've heard is that the Cicada lives under ground for 17 years! I know. The scientific name for the Cicada is Cicadidae. Very interesting. Did you know that Cicadas spend most of there time sucking xylum to get to the juices. (Xylum are like the veins of trees) So they are definitely tree vampires! Of course they make extreme noises in fact it sounds like a song! Hope you have enjoyed the interesting things about Cicada's.

What's my number!



(This is just a late post)

Amelia Bike Saftey

Walt: Present information in a interesting way.



Recount:

Who has rode on a and on a awesome bike track before? Well I have. Well you better read more to find out what happens!

So Mr Goodwin chose 5 kids from his Literacy class including me to have a bit of a lesson with our new bike track/Bikes at our school! So we had a little talk then we packed all our gear which was the, Tripod, The camera and the Go pro so as the iPad. Then we walked over to the shed were the bikes were. Well we were walking over to the shed I was holding the iPad so I can look at my reflection. I was so excited.

After that we sat down on the grass and started to have a little talk about things that can help us ride safely. One of the things that I actually did not know was that you have to wear shoes, and yes I mean closed shoes not sandals. One of the other things we talked about was our helmet. Your helmet is there for you to protect your brain, and it's not just there to protect you head from getting your head smash on the ground. It's there to protect your brain from concussions!

After all the bla, bla, bla we finally got to ride on the bike track! But before that we had to just learn a little about the breaks. After that it was the time of my life! I started riding and kind of had a little race with the others. I'm really competitive though. It was really fun!

Overall I really loved the bike track it was really cool. One thing guys make sure that when you are riding a bike leave enough space in the middle so that you don't crash like my friends did! By the way no line got hurt and no one cried but they did giggle a lot of times.

Presentation:


Task Description: Here as you can see I have a double blog post. At the top I have written a recount about riding on the bike track. But what I'm going to talk about mostly is this presentation right here! Can you you see? We I was lucky enough to ride on the new school bike track with the new school bikes. In this presentation I talk about riding safely and at the end I give you little tips. I also used images to show you what I am talking about, and don't worry I have used image attribution on the last slide! Take care and when you ride a bike read my safety presentation!
