Elections - Kahoot

For our last election task we had to create a Kahoot quiz with at least 10 question based on the elections. Thank you to Fraidons group for sharing their Kahoot with LS2. One of the questions we had to answer was who was the leader for the Labour party. I think learning about elections is fun and very interesting.

Critical Analysis - Goody Goody Gum Drops

This week and last week LS2 has been focusing on Food Advertising. We learnt what the spokesperson is on food items for example on Coco Pops there is a monkey mascot and on Frosties there is a Tiger mascot. We have also learnt the slogans of some food advertising. For example the slogan for Mc Donald's is I'm lov'n it. Today I have finished my critical analysis. I have based my critical analysis on Goody Goody Gum Drops. I have labeled all the visual and attractive details from the ice cream so that people could buy it. 

Term 3 Production

Panmure Bridge School is 60 years old and by celebrating this event we are dancing through the decades. Each classroom is given a song each with a specific year. In LS2 we had the 70's and 80's songs which are 'Stay'n Alive' by the Bee Gees, 'I See Red' by Split Enz and 'Footloose' by Kenny Loggins. I think dancing to old day songs is amazing because the clothes we wear and the moves we dance to. LS2 has put an effort into this dancing. Yesterday the whole school performed their dances to their families and friends. Today we will be presenting again and will put a lot of effort into it. Thank you to Zoe for all her hard work teaching us the dances.

The Princess Bride Character Introductions

In LS2 we have been doing a film study about the movie The Princess Bride. Once we watched the movie, I made a DLO about the character introductions that happen in the film. The character introductions are about the main characters who are Buttercup, Westley, Inigo, Fezzik, Vizzini and Prince Humperdink.

Kiwi Can

Today LS2 went to Kiwi Can. During Kiwi Can we played three games which was Hand Soccer, 10 down and Objects. In Hand Soccer we were first splited into two groups. We each given numbers from 1 to 13. Mr Malo had to call out two numbers and those two numbers had to try and get a goal between the two cones with their hands. It was a very challenging games because we had to use our hand to get the goal. My favourite game was Objects because it was a very creative game. In this game we were splited into four teams. Mr Malo and Mrs Latoia had to put an object in the middle and each group had to figure out anything to do with that object for example one of the objects was a hula hoop. What my group did with it was pretending it was a basketball hoop. I think LS2 could play this game again.

Election Results

This week we have been learning about the elections. Ofa, Tiava, Zane and I had created a google slides about a coalition. A coalition is when a small party joins a bigger party to form an alliance and work together to get more sets. For example Labour and Green party have come together to form alliance to help each other. Currently we do not have a prime minister because neither party has enough sets to say they win so it all depends on Winston Peters. If Winston Peters goes for National or Labour the team will win.

Cross Country

All week my classroom and I have been preparing for cross country. Cross country is a running sport where people run a course that has been set for them. While training I learned to paste myself and always stretch before racing so it prevents you from injury. Stretching helps you to loosen your muscle and help increase blood flow. On Wednesday we had our cross country at Dunkirk. We ran in order of our year group. There were the boys year group and the girls year group. I'm a year seven girl so had to run five laps around the course. While running I always remembered to paste myself. Although I was tired I still kept running until I reached the finish line. In the race I placed 1st in my group. I was very proud of myself.

Politacil Party Leaders

The group that I was working with were researching about the political party leaders. We found out about Jacinda Ardern, James  Shaw, Winston Peters, Marama Fox, David Seymour and Bill English. I found this  task very interesting because there was some information I didn't know about the political party leaders.

Kiwi Can

Today we had kiwi Can. This week our subject for Kiwi Can is taking risks. Taking Risks is basically being nervous for example: rock climbing is can be risky if you think that the harness is not tight enough when you started. Mr Malu and Miss Latoia gave us an activity. It was bip, bop, bounce, the rules are when Mr Malu says Bip, bop, bounce you had to say bang before they finished saying bip, bop, bounce.
After that we played a game called hand soccer, we had to use our hand instead of using our feet and pass the ball to each other before scoring a goal. This was working together as a team, we had lots of fun.

How To Stand Up To A Bully



Bullying is not okay. When you see someone getting bullied stand up and speak out. Today my friends Tiava, San Kyaw, Josh, Lyric and I created a animation to send a message about bullying. When you see someone getting bullied don't just stand there. If you're getting bullied stand up for yourself. Don't look down on someone unless you're going to pick them up.

Sentence Sackdown

For writing this week we have been learning about two word sentences. In a two word sentence there is a subject and a verb. We written some two word sentences on the board and then we had to choose three of them to make them into compound and complex sentences.
