Why Is It So Important To Keep Oral Storytelling Alive?

It is important that we remember to pass down the  storytelling of Maori people and keeping it alive because it can keep the Maori language alive.

How Maui Slowed The Sun

For this terms reading our focus is myths and legends. For today's task Sylis and I created a comic strip using StoryBoard That. We had read a story about How Maui Slowed The Sun. After reading the story I had made a comic strip that summarizes one of the scenes in the book. I chose the scene when Maui and his brothers are catching the sun. 

Ordering Fractions

For maths today we were doing an ordering fractions activity. There was only 3 questions so it was really easy.

Agree To Disagree

Today some people were chosen to show Ms Apelu (Visitor) how we work in LS2. We were discussing about plastic. Mia, Oh Sen, Zane and Nazella and myself all had to agree to disagree. We had three sections. The first section says important ideas, the next said 4 very important ideas and the last said 3 vital ideas. We all agreed that this was were it should go.


People Power

Today for maths we had solve out a maths problem that had percentages in it. Ofa and I were struggling at first but when Mrs Kirkpatrick showed us how to use a very amazing strategie that our group all used. This strategie included multiplication and division skills. I learnt that in Asia there a 3,672 people living there. This country has the most population out of all the countries I have been doing percentages about.


Today we had our Orienteering Inter schools for the year 5,6,7,8. This event was held at Pt England school. Panmure Bridge School did a very good job with following the map correctly. We had all shown our hard work we do at orienteering practice at school. Before the event we learnt how to face the map. This really helped us because it was easy to know where we were going. The challenging thing for all of us was the mud and puddles. Thank you to Mrs Kirkpatrick, Mrs Latoya, Mrs Spooner, for transport and to Mrs Kirkpatrick for looking after us. 

Tamaki Wrap

On Tuesday a group of Ladies from Glen Ines came to our school to talk about soft plastic recycling It. It was really cool we had to cut rubbish that they have collected like chippie packets and and left over lollies wrappers. In thie first station it said 1 week of New Zealand rubbish can fill up a whole rugby stadium like Eden Park. The next station we were cutting pieces of rubbish to fill up the turtle. The next station we had to cut fabric to design things that are good like a metal pen that you can use forever you just need to refill the ink when it runs out instead of a plastic pen that when the ink runs out you would throw it in the rubbish. The last station was what we wanted our environment to look like in the future and now.
