Matariki

Matariki is a one of the most special Maori celebrations in the whole of the world. Matarki is a Maori New Year. It is about a mother and its six daughters. The word Matariki means the yes of god.  These are names of the seven sisters, Matariki, Tupu A Nuku, Tupu A Rangi, Waiti, Waita, Waipuna Rangi and Ururangi e. I work collaboratively to do this task with Jericho, Mojtaba and Oscar. I found this task every exciting because today we are celebrating Matariki.

M&M's Presentation

Last week our focus was on M&M's. Our teachers put us into groups of 4 to 6 then we had to work collaboratively to complete this task. I found this task very interesting because I never really pay attention to the history about M&M's. The hardest thing I found about this task was finding the percentage of how much M&M's were in a 45g packet. The easiest thing to me was making the pie chart and the bar graph because it gave me the percentages and what colour had the most in the packet. In our packet we found that most of our packet contained more yellow than any other colour. Another interesting thing I found was that the red M&M's were removed for a decade due to cancer reasons.

HIIT Training

Today at HIIT we had changed the exercise we have been doing and are now doing exercises to do with our strength. The exercises we had to do were push ups, sit ups and pull ups. Before we started we did some warm up exercises. When we finished our warm up exercises we got straight into the exercises we had to do for HIIT. For me the exercise I struggled the most on was the pull ups in the first round but I got use to it later on in the 2 and 3 round. From these exercises I learnt how to do a pull up properly and a push up properly.

Tech Reflection - Pewter Casting

Today we had tech. In pewter casting some people were still finishing there designs and some people are on to the second which is using sand paper to make there designs look shiny. All I have to do is to start polishing my design with the sand paper. When you shine you have to use different sand papers because they have different grip on it. You had to start with roughly 100 to 120 then you go to 400, 800, 1200 and then you have to keep doing this process until you can kind of see your own reflection on the pewter (A type of metal).

KiwiCan

This week for Kiwican with Miss Lily and Mr Matt (Our Kiwican Tutors) we had changed our topic from integrity to accountability. At Kiwican we learn about values and the theme and topic that is chosen. For this term we are learning about integrity and accountability. Accountability means when you take owner ship for your own actions and integrity means doing the right thing when no one is looking. Accountability can be used in Panmure Bridge School when you do something wrong and owning up and not blaming anyone else and integrity can be shown when you turn up to school early with your P.E uniform or bringing your device at school fully charged. After learning about our themes and topics we played a game called two truths and one lie. Then we did GKQ, in this activity we had to answers random questions that our kiwican tutors gave.

Fractions Of An Amount

For maths today we solved fraction equations. First we solved the first three with our teacher (Ms Kirkpatrick) then we could choose if we would stay on the mat or go work by yourself. Fraidoon and I chose to stay on the mat because we still didn't quite get what we had to do. We did 5 more then we had to do the last 2 by ourselves. I think this task was bit hard at first but it got easy at the end.

Kiwisport

Yesterday we had our third session of Kiwi sport with Haymish. We learnt how to side step to get away from our defenders but we also learnt how to spin to get away from our defenders to. We were learning these skills while playing different styles of rippa rugby games. I found these activities good because even tho I play Rippa rugby, I have know learnt how to side step and spin of both legs.
