Factory Maths Problem

The learning intention for this maths problem was that we would use new or known strategies to work out this problem and I had a lot of fun trying out new strategies and working out this problem. I thought it was a really interesting way to present a maths equation

Saturnalia - Italy Winter Solstice

This is a DLO Fraidoon and I made about Saturnalia which is a winter solstice celebration in Italy. Countries have these celebrations because it is the marking of a new beginning in there country where they can grow new crops and harvest the grown crops.

Legend of the seven sisters

 This week we have been doing work for Matariki because it is the time of the Matariki celebration. Fraidoon and I made this DLO which has some information about The Legend of the Seven Sisters story which is a maori story about how the seven stars of Matariki came to be.

Winter Solstice animation

 This is an animation Fraidoon and I made about the Winter solstice and how the seasons work. We made this DLO for the Matariki celebration about the seven stars or nine because now they believe that there are 9 sisters. Matariki is around the time of the winter solstice so it is kind of New Zealands winter solstice celebration.

Blackout day at PBS

Today was blackout day so everyone came in either black or red clothing depending on what team they were supporting and to celebrate PBS did a lot of cool things which started at 1:30 this afternoon. First we went inside the hall to sing Tu Tere Mai. After that the kapa haka group did the haka led by AJ and they did a great job. Also we went out to the field and spelt out ALL BLACKS and Mr Wong flew a drone over us and took a photo. last but not least the whole school got into a cricle around the court and we passed a ball around to everyone.

What people think about rubbish in our school

This is a graph showing what people think about rubbish in our school it shows that a lot of people drop rubbish around our school it also shows that we need more rubbish bins and we need more and finally a lot of people are unsure whether people would listen to signs saying not to litter.

Inquiry Recycling

Today for inquiry we had to get into groups 4 and we had to negotiate without talking about how Panmure Bridge should prevent littering. The pupils in my team came up with fantastic Ideas. My favourite was the one which say have more bins in our school and we should the one which says tidy kiwi should be long like 3 three weeks. I could not believe that lots of people came up with have more bins at our school. I really had fun negotiating with my group members with out speaking and using sign language.

Fonterra Milk in Schools recycling.

Today for dance Miss Brett has been teaching us about the temp or speed of music and how it affects the dance. Dances look better when they are in sync with the music which is the point Miss Brett was trying to get across with this lesson. I really enjoyed today lesson in dance because me and Oh Hsen made a lot of progress with our dance and the moves we used. She compared rock and ballet music to a dance to see if they would fit the dance and rock was to fast while ballet was to slow.

Tech Day 5 Term 2

Today at tech we worked on our designs for our clocks we made six designs after choosing who we were making the clock for. I am making a clock for my self and out of the six designs I think the one I will most likely use is the Tri-Force from The Legend of Zelda.

Respecting cultural traditions - Summary

This week is Samoan language week, so for reading we've been learning Samoan traditions. So to help us learn more about the Samoan culture we watched a video that included Mata'afa Elia Autagavia (who gave a speech on Samoan .) Our task was to find the main idea in the video. In the video Mata'afa was talking about how students from schools performed their dances. He said that the students were doing a lot of the actions wrong. This DLO is a summary about the video. We decided to use a summary because it is more easier for us to find the main idea and we've previously used it before. The main idea is: We have to preserve the Samoan culture so people don't lose connections with their roots. It is like a flax because you pull the older leaves out to keep the plant alive. To make this DLO I worked with Daniel and Jeremiah
