Reading Progress

For the past two years I have been taught by Ms Kirkpatrick and Mrs Anderson. They are both great teachers and to help us enlarge our knowledge they provide us websites such as read theory. While I have been in Learning Space Two I have been practising my reading by using Read Theory. Today the class have gathered information from our Read Theory accounts to create a statistical graph that shows our improvement between last year and this year.

On Tuesday the 13th (which was yesterday) part of the year 5,6,7, and 8 at Panmure Bridge School went down to Dunkirk for the touch Inter Schools. There were 11 schools including us which. The schools that the year 8 yellow team (my team) verse were Tamaki Primary, Pt England, Glenn Taylor, and Stone Fields. We manage to beat Tamaki Primary 5-1. We then verse Stonefields which we won 4-2. After that we verse Glenn Taylor and unfortunately we lost 3-2. Our fourth game was against Pt England. Unfortunately we lost 3-0. After our four games we went into cross over. So since we came 3rd in our pool we got to verse the team who came 4th in their pool. Surprisingly we versed our other year 8 team. We all played our hardest, but we won 2-1. We then played for 5th and 6th against Tamaki Primary (second game against them). We won 3-2 against them. I would like to say a big thank you to Mr Ogilvie for making this happen and also for coaching and supervising us.

Book Week

This week is Book Week. For book week we were splitted into groups. After that we were to answer questions based on books such as: What is your favorite author?, Do illustrations matter? Why?, Do you read the blurb of the book? etc. After answering each questions we were to make a bar or pie graph on one of the questions. I picked the questions: How important is the cover and Why the cover is important? We used the information that people wrote on the paper to help us make our bar graph and pie chart.

Collaborative Comprehension: Battle Of The Somme

Today for reading we are learning about the Battle of the Somme. For this activity I worked with Carl , we worked collaboratively and helped each other to finished this task. I learnt that the war last 4 months/181 days and I learnt that the word catastrophic in this text means hectic or crazy. The Battle of the Somme, it was a battle between British and German but it started between French and German. French soldier order British army to help them beat German soldiers, but at the first day of the war many young British soldiers had died. The most challenging question for me was 'Explain in your own words what the British plan was?' because I need to make my own opinion.

The Ocean

The Deep Dark Ocean

Down Down Down in the deep dark ocean lives some terrifying
sea creatures. So deep some sea creatures haven’t been
discovered yet.

In the ocean there are many scary animals like:
different types of sharks, different types of whales and
many more. The most dangerous creature to roam the
seas is the shark. The most famous shark is the Megalodon shark
people say it still roams the ocean but it has been extinct for
2.6 million years.

Even tho swimming in the deep blue ocean in dangerous places
are risky it is still beautiful. In our world the ocean is very vital
because it produces the rain in our world and it also provides 50
times more oxygen to our world and it also cover 70 percent of
the earth's surface.

Did you know that there are seven oceans in our world.
They are called the: the Arctic Ocean the North
Atlantic Ocean, the South Atlantic Ocean, the
Indian Ocean, the North Pacific Ocean, the South
Pacific Ocean, the Southern/ Antarctic Ocean. These
are really important because it again provides 50
percent of our carbon dioxide and covers 70% to
71% percent of our earth's surface.

The ocean is a very vital part of this world.
It has two sides to it the beautiful side and a
very dangerous side. It is very important because
it is part of our water cycle.
