Email Etiquette

Today for cyber smart we were learning the tips of how to write a etiquette email. First we watched a video explaining what could happen if we post bad things online. After we had to make a DLO with tips of how to make a etiquette email. I have learnt that if you need to get straight to the point of writing your email you need to, use short paragraphs or bullets to stay organised.

Animation- Winter and Summer Solstice

This is my animation that I have made with Sylis and Tiava. In this animation we had to explain what the summer and winter solstice is and how the seasons work. A new thing that I learnt while making this was that the summer solstice is the longest day in the year and the winter solstice is the shortest day in a year.

Legend Of The Seven Stars


For the Matariki Study Lyric and I have completed our second challenge which was the learning about the legends of the seven stars. First we had to watch a video about the legends of the seven stars and then answer question that we were given. Lyric and I learnt a lot of new things. We learnt the names of the seven stars and we also learnt who they had visit in the video. The photo in our DLO is Papa-Tu-A-Nuku the grandmother of the seven stars. The information below of the DLO shows you the reference of the video so you know where we got our information from.

Lohri

For this task I had to find out about different ways people celebrate winter solstice. I worked with Sylis and Tiava to make a DLO of a celebration we found interesting. We choose India. Did you know that India lights fires signaling the end of winter solstice?

P.B.S Blackout Day

Today it was the P.B.S blackout day. We had to dress in black if you were supporting the All Black and Red if you were supporting the Lions. We had  an assembly singing Tu Tera Mina Iwi. We also watched a video about the Lions tour this year and we said in our loudest voices GO  ALL BLACKS! After that the boys from our school Kapa Haka group did the All Blacks haka while my class was holding up the All Blacks names and Jersey number. Next we went outside and created All Blacks with our whole school while Mr Wong flew a drone above recording what we created. Next our whole school made a circle around the court passing the rugby ball saying All Blacks but I was saying Lions. Next our class took a photo with the new Panmure Bridge logo.

Soft Plastics Recycling

Today Mrs. Caroline had a talk to our class about soft plastics recycling. We learnt about the crunch test. The crunch test is when you crunch something into a ball. If you make a ball it is soft plastic and if it doesn't make a ball it is not soft plastic. We also learnt that New Zealanders throw away 1.6 billion plastic bags are thrown away each year which means New Zealanders throw away 4.6 million plastic bags away every day.

Dance

Today for music we were continuing on making our dance moves. Ofa, Fraidon, Josh S and I we working together to make our dance moves. We also had to chose a song that our group was going to do with our dance moves. We also had to choose a music. The music we choose had to suit our dance moves. So if we are doing our moves our music can't be a ballerina song because it doesn't suit. The music had to be at the same speed and beat as our music. My favourite move we did was our staircase move.

Worm Farms

For inquiry we changed teachers so we were working with Mrs Kirkpatrick. It was fun We read 3 articles about France, New York/ San Francisco, and Sydney. I was really amazed how France  banned supermarkets to donate all there left over food to charity's. In the article we read about France it says supermarkets cannot make food rot on purpose. We were writing words on the board that were the most interesting and then we had to pick one to do a DLO about.

Shopping Spree

For this maths problem Miki,Shannon and I had to use Highest Common Factor or H.C.F to work out the question and then the problems were division problems. Which made it relatively easy to work them out but not only did we have to find out the price but also how much of a difference it is between the original price so it was also a subtraction problem.

Summary: Mataio

We had a learning conversation about a book we read. Our group had to write a summary about the facts. To do this we had to negotiate the 20 most important words Then we chose the 6 most important words. After that we used those 6 words in sentences to summaries the information.

Perspectives

For reading we had to find the positive and negative outcomes of recycling. We were split into two groups boys and girls. We had to form our own point of view. We read two articles about recycling. One of the articles was telling you the good things about recycling and the bad things. My opinion was recycling is good because we are not throwing the rubbish we recycled into landfills which is not good for our evviorment.

Kilikiti

This week it is Samoan language week. We had two choices it was either Kilikiti (Cricket in Samoa) or Tatau ( A Tattoo from Samoa). I chose Kilikiti. Kilikiti was a game introduced from missionaries. In Kilikiti it has the same rules as Cricket but you can have 10 to 20 people in a team. The Samoan people say it is more than a sport it is like a celebration.

Maths Problem

Today for maths we were looking at BEDMAS which stands for Bracets, Exponents, Division and Multiplication, Addition and Subtraction. We were given four equations of BEDMAS to solve out. It was pretty easy for me. After that we were told to make a DLO of either the equation we had to solve out or make a DLO about what BEDMAS is. Ofa and I did a DLO of the equation that we were given. It was hard at the start to solve out the equation but we got help from Mrs Kirkpatrick (teacher).
