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!

Holiday Blogging - Going to AUT!

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. I really enjoyed this activity because I got to draw on paper and do digital drawing! This was one of my favorite activity's! Stay tuned for more blog posts like this one.

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!

But if you want to answer the form here's a Link.
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!
