Last Blog Post For 2017!!

Hay everybody today is the last day of 2017 so that means tomorrow is the first day of 2018. 2018 is going to be a new start to a new year!! This is going to be my last blog post for 2017. 2017 was a great year filled with laughter, positive energy and good times. My highlight from school had to be the manaiakalani film festival because I got to see all my friends in some of the movies that we got to make. I also loved watching and making the movies. I loved all the funny laughs and all the good times at school!! My highlights from the school holidays had to be our family celebrating Christmas together as a family. I loved having so much fun and hanging out with my family. I wish everyone has a happy new year.

Merry Christmas

Hay everybody on Monday it was Christmas!! Christmas is a time to have fun and to hang out with your family.  This Christmas we did the same as last year, if you can't remember what happened last year well here is your answer, we went to four family places. The first stop was at my nana's house (my dad's mum) to have breakfast and to open up our presents. The food was so yum and tasty, but before we had breakfast we handed our presents out and got to see what we got. I got a really cool jumper and t-shirt from my secret Santa, my siblings and I received some board games and slime for the whole lot of us to have fun. After my mum, dad and siblings went back home and got some other thing for the next stop. 



The next stop was my grandad's house (my mum's dad) to have brunch (Breakfast/lunch) once again the food was super yummy. My favorite food that I had was his pancakes!! We had chocolate sauce and maple syrup with the pancakes. This time it was different, we ate first then had a look at our presents. Opening up our presents my baby sister open there presents first. then my sister and I. I loved the present that we got because it was so thoughtful and creative. We got a karaoke machine, I love our present because we love to sing!! 

Next we went to see my aunty Sila (my dad's sister). We just hung out and sang songs. I love going to see my aunty because it is always peaceful and quite. We all wished everyone a merry Christmas and we hoped that every one would have a great new years. After that we all said good bye and left. On to the next stop.


The last stop that  went to is my aunty Ra's  (my mum's sister). We went to my aunty's house to have dinner, We had a BBQ and once again we had the yummiest food. My favorite food had to be the chicken nibbles. Once again we had a look of what we got for Christmas. My brother, my sister and I did secret Santa, I had my sister. I bought her a Nerf gun a really cool top and other super cool things. I received thoughtful and creative gifts from my brother. My favorite gift that I got from my brother is a watch. I really wanted and needed a watch because I always want to know what the time is so thank-you Ajani. After opening our present we played in our pool that we got for one of our others presents. It is massive!! Once we finished and got changed into dry clothes we settled at the table we ate the yummy and delicious food. Then it was all over and we all got some rest for other amazing day.

Water Fight!!!


On Thursday my sisters and I had a water fight!!! It was so hot inside and outside so I asked my mum if we could have a water fight and she said yes!!! So we went outside and turned on the hose. We filled up a washing bucket and added soap just for fun. Once the washing  bucket was half way we added hot water to make it warm for my little twin sisters. While my little twin sisters were playing with the warm water, Eva and I were playing with the cold water. Who remembers The best Christmas ever? Well we took the hose into the trampoline and got wet while jumping. We had so much fun. We took turns  holding the hose and wetting each other. My little sisters jumped with us for a while but then they got too cold so they went back into the warm water. We got soaking wet but it was worth it. It was a perfect way to spend a hot and summery day.

Santa Tracker

Today I have been playing Santa tracker. Santa tracker is a Christmas game that also has a Christmas count down. One of my favorite game is search for Santa, search for Santa is kind of like where's Wally. Search for Santa is fulled with fun, it can be a bit hard sometimes but lucky you get hints. There are also different maps where you can search for Santa. You don't just look for Santa but you also search for different things too like snowmans, ginger bread men, penguins and many other things. If you don't know what you've found and what you have not there will be a list at the bottom of your screen. There are other fun and enjoyably games too.  There is this one game where you can give Santa a hair cut,  dye his hair and even decorate his hair. Three more days until Christmas so I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and a Happy new year.

Milk Experiment

 As I said I will be doing the milk and food coloring experiment. All you need is milk, food coloring (your choice of color) dish washing detergent and a bowl. First, all you have to do is pour some milk into your bowl, next pour some food coloring into the same bowl. The colors that I used were pink, blue and yellow. Then all you need to do is put in some detergent and watch the colors spread around the milk. Putting in the detergent I used a small paint brush so I wouldn't put too much in. This turned out to be a huge successes. I loved watching the colors change and spread all around. 


School Holidays!!

It is the school holidays and is almost Christmas!! These holidays I will be doing an experiment!!, One of my favorite experiment that I will be doing later on today or tomorrow is the milk and food coloring experiment. I can't wait for Christmas, my family is doing secret Santa and I can't wait to see who has me. I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and a happy new year. Stay on track. Happy holidays!!!

Coding is where you can make you own games you can also play on other peoples games that they have made their self. One of the games that I played was Create our own google logo. Create your own google logo is when you can do anything.  You can change the color, you can do anything to the letters, you can even make them move.  Also even change the background. I made my own google logo, my google logo was representing out topic for this term which is musical madness. Create your own google logo was a cool game to play. I loved creating my own logo.

My Ambassador Application




This is my ambassador application for 2018. My video is about myself, my family, my school learning and why I want to be an Ambassador. I really hope I will get chosen to become an ambassador because it will help my school learning and my confidence. My confidence is not that bad but I would love to see how my confidence will evolve during the year. If I become an ambassador I would be a role model to all my little sisters. I will also help them if they want to apply. I look up to my older brother because he became an ambassador. Now it is 2017 and next year my brother is a prefect which are the leaders of our school. My brother is the perfect person to look up to because he is confident. He can be shy sometimes but he still gives it a go. Hope you enjoy my movie!!

How I Show Learn, Create and Share


This is one of my favorite blog posts that I have learnt, created and shared. In this blog post we have learnt about cloths and materials from back in the days and from nowadays. We had to research about what types of costume are appropriate for a scene in our mini production. We also had to find out when sewing was invented and who it was invented by. There are some links to some websites that we found and have shared with all of you (slide 7).

This presentation was created in extension by me, Eden, Pisirina and Makayla. The reflection is about our production that the yr 5&6 extension group preformed to the whole school. Our production was about some kids who traveled back in time. They found this weird shell and all of a sudden they went back in time. They went to the islands, to the 60's and even the future it was so cool.

Why music is so powerful to me?

Music is powerful because music is passionate to some people like to me. Music sometimes can make you cry, feel happy, angry and shocked. To me music controls my feeling. Sometimes when a sad song is played I can't hold back. I start  to cry. music sometimes even help me to concentrate. Anyways that is why music is so powerful to me.

Immersion Assembly

Welcome everybody to a new start. It’s time for term 4!! Our theme for this term is musical madness. It might of been easy to guess we are going to be learning about music!! Anyways i’m not here to talk about what the theme for this term i’m here to talk about our immersion assembly.

Walking to the hall I was so excited to be back at school. We walked in and saw teachers all dressed up with some musical instruments. Mr Burt was dressed up as Bob Marley. Anyways it was time for team 1. Team 1 played with cards, they played snap. While they were playing they put on some music. When the music was played they changed their emotions so they changed the songs again and their emotions changed again. Finally it was over, once it was over Mrs Hockley said this term we are going to be seeing how music changes our emotions. I thought that was a great idea.

Next was team 2!! Team two’s item was about making music with musical instruments. They sang a song and also played musical instruments they sang in the jungle the mighty jungle. Ms Gaston played the ukulele. Miss Peck played the tambourine. Ms Tumahai played the xylophone, and Mrs Nalder played the bongo drums. It was a great way to start off the term.

You know what i’m going to say it’s time for team 3!! Team 3 did a song story. A song story is when you say something but carries on with a song. Team three’s  item was funny and really cool. My favorite song that they used was me myself and I. My favourite part in the movies was when Miss Davis pretended she was hanging from the roof. Don’t worry it was a green screen.

Now it was time for, team 4!! Team four did carpool karaoke. It was quit funny. Anyways as they were driving music came on and the teachers started singing. As the music changed it got funnier and funnier. My favourite song was one of the rock songs Because all the teachers were really funny and crazy. Then it was over and finally I could stop laughing.

It’s time for team 5. Team 5 was the funniest item that i’ve seen. Team 5 teacher did an  act. Team 5 watched a movie the movie was lion king. Team 5 didn’t watch the whole movie they just watched the part where Simba was put up in the air while the kingdom sang a song. As the movie played on that part of the movie kept repeating and repeating. While the song kept changing and changing. The songs were sometimes funny, sad and quit even funnier. The funniest song was let it go because when Simba got put up into the air the song kept saying let it go! Some people laughed but some people were a little sad.

Anyway that was the end of the immersion assemble. I hope you enjoyed reading about the immersion assembly.

The Flight Of The Bumblebee

This morning room 10 listened to a song. The song is called the flight of the bumblebee. When room 10 listened to the flight of the bumblebee we had to draw a picture of what you think is happening during the song. Miss West gave us some ideas, those ideas were maybe when the music is getting louder the darker you use the pencil and when the music gets softer the lighter you use the pencil. Miss West also said maybe a bee is chasing someone? I decided to go with my own idea. As you can see in my photo someone is falling, as the music gets louder she gets closer to the ground. I thought someone was going to hit the ground because the music is quite scary and loud.

3rd Semminar

On Tuesday the year 5 & 6 extension had there 3rd paideia seminar. The topic was, is being civilised such a good thing? I think it is okay to be civilised because civilised means to be good mannered. I think I did a better job in this seminar that the old seminar because I agreed and piggy backed off other ideas. I think I could talk more and have more confidence in myself.

Earth's Natural Resources

Imagine that all earth's resources disappeared. How would we survive? Imagine all human and animals are thirsty!  Would we be alive.

Why are natural resource important? Well our natural resources are what we need. If you don’t get what I mean, I mean water, tree’s things that keep us alive. We need plants we need water we need tree’s. Why do we need all these thing? If we didn’t have natural resources we would be very sick.

The most important resource for me is tree’s. Why? You ask, well tree’s produce oxygen and oxygen help us to breath. As I said before if we didn’t have this natural resource we would very sick. Moving on to the next natural resource.

The next natural resource that is important is water. Water comes from many different rivers or oceans but we are going to be talking about drinking water. If we didn’t have water we would be thirsty and dehydrated. Dehydrated means we don’t have enough water in our body. Your lips would start to dry up and we do not want that to happen. That's why drinking water is important. Did you know that you could survive without any food but with water for 3 weeks? Amazing right. On to the last natural resource.

The last important natural resource I will be sharing with is soil. Do we need soil? Your answer is yes. We need soil because soil helps us grow fruit and vegetables, food! That's right food. Vegetables and fruit are healthy for you too. One more thing is that soil helps up grow tree’s also. And tree’s help us to breath.

So there you have it all the important natural resource that are my favorite. Tree’s, water and soil, all my favorite. But again what would we do if we didn’t have natural resource? Think about it.

Cyber Smart On Gmail

This afternoon we were learning about being cyber smart on Gmail. We came up with some ideas and some of them were, ask a teacher before you send an email to someone. only go on if it's something important but still ask a teacher. My favorite idea was you are only allowed on Gmail if you ask a teacher but only if you're sharing collaborative work.


Follow-up



This is my follow-up activity. it is about the water cycle.

Rubric reflection

Hmmm is my Score what I expected? My rubric score for term 2 was very amazing. I worked very hard and I didn’t get what I expected. I thought my score would be a little bit lower that I thought, but I was wrong. You might be asking why my rubric score was amazing? Well on our planning/research we worked very hard as a group and we all did our very best to research about costumes, makeup and hair. We almost got a perfect score but I think we could have pushed our group just a little more. On the forum/Panel Discussion I was so amazed because I was the only one who contributed more than my other group members. Last term I was below them and now i’m higher, if I just push myself a little more I can become louder and maybe I won’t be as shy as last time.

In the next seminar my goal would keep sharing my thoughts and my work to others and to piggyback off others.

Seminar

On Thursday the 27th of July year 5 & 6 had a seminar about different perspectives like children, school, culture, news reporters and more. We had to get into 2 or 3 groups. My buddy was my friend Pisirina. Our perspective that we talked about was school. “Get ready and start writing we don’t have much time” said Mrs lagitupu, the class answered “yes Mrs lagitupu” and started writing I did not write much but that’s because I already knew what I was going to say. Whenever it comes close to seminars we panic we don’t know what we are going to say but this term I felt more confident I knew what I was going to say and I wasn’t shy to talk.

The time has come, the seminar has started. Then we started blabbering about what we have learnt. First off as I was not hoping is the school group which was my group why am I always first!! Anyways we talked and talked until someone changed the topic. Then someone else talked and talked and talked and it went all over again until it was over.

I think I can do better next time I think I could do better because I have to talk more and get more confidence so I won't be the only one left out. Next time my goal is to encourage people to talk more.

School Tomorrow!!

I love school but today is still a holiday. At the end of term 2 I was feeling down that school was over on that day but I was still happy that I got to spend time with my family in the holidays. In the past few days I had a lot of fun with my family but it's time to go back to school and learn different things. I'm super excited to go back to school and learn more. I am also excited to see Miss West my teacher and tell her all the amazing things I did during the holidays. But I am mostly excited to see all of my friends. See you at school!!


It's time for a new term.

On Tuesday we had lots of fun, we did lots of thing but most of the things were playing outside. I woke up in the morning and went in the lounge I watched TV and got my baby sisters out from their room. I asked my mum "can I take Faith and Gene outside to have some fun" she replied "not yet it's cold outside just wait for a little bit longer" I answered "OK" then went to watch TV more. 12:00 came around and got sunnier so I asked again and luckily she said yes so I took Faith and Gene out side and had some fun. My little sister Eva and my little cousin Harmony were jumping on the trampoline while I was with my other 2 sister drawing on the ground with chalk. My little baby cousin Villy was relaxing with my big brother Ajani. We had so much fun. once we got inside we were to lazy from all of that sunshine outside.

Animal journey

Some animals woke up at 6:00am just to go on a journey. These animals names are Guppy the pug, Lizzy the goat and Ben the bee. They went for a journey  to the city, they were going to go on an animal plane ride to Cook Island. They went through  traffic jam just to get to the airport. Their flight was at 8:00 am so they had enough time to get to the airport, so they stopped for lunch. For lunch they had Mcdonalds.

After lunch the animals made their  way to the animal airport. Once they were at the airport they went to their plane and took off. Half way through the plane ride Logan and Nick the pilot said “we're going down, everyone put on you lifejackets” the plane broke down and smash into the deep ocean.

All the animal swam up and were safe. They needed to find a house to live and stay in so they tried using the broken plane parts to help them float on the water, they also tried to find small part to use as a oar. “Yay” shouted the animals “we are safe we also found things that would float” said Guppy. They started to row north and then south they didn’t know where they were going. Then nick had an idea, he tried navigating by using the clouds. He said to everybody “did you know if you look at the bottom of the clouds you could see a reflect of green if land is near”

After nick's little talk to the animals they started to look at all of the clouds then Lizzy found one cloud that had green at the bottom of it. Suddenly Lizzy shouted “there I see one” pointing to one of the clouds, “good job” said ben, all the animals shouted horay and started rowing west. Day after day night after night they found their way to land.

“At last” cried the animals “we made it” said Nick “good job to all” said logan, “come on now, let's go” said guppy so they walked off and traveled around to find somewhere to stay in. bang bang bang! Knocked logan, kiarana said  the owner of the house that logan knocked on. “What did he say” said ben “He said hi” said Guppy “what” answer Ben “he said hi” shouted Guppy again “oh sorry” Ben said to Guppy. Logan said “hello can you look after these animals they are very well taught and behaved”, “ok but you are going to be telling me what they need everyday and night” said the man, nick said “they need water pet food and meat”, “ok” answered the man “by the way” he said “yes” said the pilots “my name is riro” “ok said logan bye now see you later this is your new home for now” “bye we are going to miss you” cried the animals. “I’m never going to forget you two” cried the animal again

And that was the end of my narrative.

Planning


This is a slide that we worked on for our production.

Reflection of the production



Year 5 & 6 put on a production called Back in da Day. It was a great success. My favourite part of the production was dancing to the twist especially dancing with my greatest friends. I had two roles which were really fun. I never thought that I could perform in front of the whole school which I did. I felt really nervous I thought I couldn’t do it but I got up took a deep breath and went on stage. I think  I need to work on my pronunciation and to speak slower. This was my first ever production and loved it so much. This was the best production I think Pt England has ever done. Just wanted to say thank-you to Mrs Lagitupu and Mrs Sinclair.

Animation voice over.

You know what it was like back in the day, right? Well, do you know enough about sailing? Sailing is one of the known hobbies that you would find Maori doing. So this is what I will be talking about. Did you know when Maori arrived in Aotearoa, they only had materials that would keep them alive. One of the common materials that Maori and Islanders use is wood. Wood is very useful, if making a boat it would be possible for water to stay out of the boat if using wood. You must be thinking how sailing has changed over time? Well now our boats are faster because they have engines. Back then they only had oars and waka. A waka is a wooden boat. It uses wind to get through water and also uses oars.

CHALLENGE!!



In room 10 we did a challenge. The challenge was figure out what the answer was. This is what I did.

Problem Solving


This week, we were learning to solve fractions I found it difficult to solve some of the question. I worked with my friends Inga and Chance.

What has happened to Miss West TODAY!!

NO MISS WEST HAS VANISHED!!

Today Miss West has called in sick (NOT). Miss West is actually on a plane flying to Australia, she is so sick of teaching us 24\7. Anyways she’s probably going to see some koala bears.

After that she’s going to do some other fun things like…. Going on a cruise, meeting celebrities, going to the movies, going shopping with her friends and having the best day of her life (well, maybe not that much things but she is still probably having the best day of her life).  


THAT’S NOT FAIR, ALL WE HAVE TO DO IS WORK WORK WORK AND WORK!! (if Miss West wasn’t my teacher i’ll probably tell Mr Burt what she has been doing!) she’s probably laughing at us because we’ve been having to do work ALL DAY!!!! JOKES ON YOU WE ARE ACTUALLY DOING FUN STUFF (MAYBE).

SO HAS THIS ACTUALLY HAPPENED TO MISS WEST TO BE CONTINUED..........

Land boat designing

We are designing a land boat for the purpose of racing other students and to help us learn more of other technology. Room 10 is designing a land boat. We will be working in our reading groups.

Me and my friend Chance are thinking of what useful things we could use for our land boats. These are some of our ideas: caps from water bottles for the wheels and to make it move, water bottles for the body and so the land boat won’t get wet and straws help the land boat move.


When we finish making our land boats we will be racing our boats across the concrete near our class. It is going to be lots FUN!!

Netball GAME!!


This was my netball team (PRINCESSES) third game for netball season. It was lots of fun!!! We had another lucky WIN!

Coin Flipping Challenge



Starting the day off was totally hilarious!!


Coming into school ready to do some learning, Miss West said that “we are going to do something exciting like a challenge” The class shouted in joy. Miss West showed us what we were going to do. she placed her hand on her shoulder, also placed a  counter on her elbow and flicked it up in the air. She said use 1 hand to catch the counter when you flick it up in the air. So after Miss west stopped talking she demanded the class to form a circle outside.

The class went outside to form a circle. I walked outside and smelt the fresh air, I heard the birds tweeting happily and could see people from Pt England trying to do their work while we were playing outside. Miss west talked through the instructions one more time and we were off. We started off with one counter. If we flipped the counter in the air and caught the counter, we had to place another counter on top of the first one that we had.

The coin or counter flipping was really fun. I would really love to do this one more time just for fun. You should try this challenge because it is very very fun.

Digitsole shoes



What is that?…….


Coming into class the 2nd bell rang so we read our books from the library for 15 minutes. Then Miss called us to the mat and said “we will be doing something fun” we all shouted in joy!! Miss West told us what we will be doing which was going to be describing a product that has been invented, Miss West said just to be creative about the product (shoes). The shoes shine and shimmer. I think the shoes are made out of rubber, carbon fiber on the outside and cotton on the inside of the shoes. I think it will be comfortable to wear.


I think the shoes help people not to trip over themselves. I also think the shoes are used for bouncing up and down just for fun. How it work is you just jump like you're on a trampoline and if you trip, the shoes will repeat the same thing but it will be in reverse mode and it will help you stand up.


Time for the truth…….


The product is actually controlled by your smart phone. It counts up how many steps you take. It has self lacing laces which means it will tighten your shoes and will untighten your shoes for you. It heats up your shoes when you feet are feeling cold. It knows how old you are, how tall you are and how much your body weighs. This product is pretty cool


I think this product is a really cool thing that has been invented. It is also very interesting. I think my ideas were really cool maybe the inventors of this product should take some advice from me and make trampoline shoes. This would be very cool to bye but why spend you money on this product when you could do something like that on your phone but it is something very interesting.

Here is a website of what some other things the shoes can do.

Problem solving (week 1)



This is my problem solving for week 1. Room 10 is learning fractions and this is what me and my friends (Inga and Chance) have done.

Immersion assembly ( 1st day)

Now that’s thinking!! Excitingly coming to school I walk into the breeze and waited for my friends. Then I saw 2 of my friends (Eden and Levonah) we hugged and said what we’ve been up to in the holidays. Once we hugged we went looking for our other two friends (Pisi and Chance).


Anyways we realised we should have hid from our friends so it would be a surprise. So we went into Miss King’s class to say hi. Then we saw Chance so we went behind the whiteboard to hide, but unfortunately she FOUND US!! All we needed to do was to hide from Pisi but she was walking around the school just like us and she  spotted us is well (no!!!). So we walked around the school and finally the bell rang so we ran to class and got ready to go to immersion assembly.


Immersion assembly is when a beginning of a term is coming, also when we get to see what we will be learning about for the brand new term!! We also watch a little film that our team teachers made in the holidays. They make a movie about what we will be learning about for the rest of the term.

For this TERM which is term 2 we are going to be learning about, how technology has changed in the past and how it has changed from now. This term is going to be really FUN!!!
