This is a DLO about democracy and what it means. When I made this DLO I learnt a lot about what democracy means and also I learnt how the government works just a little bit more. I worked with Fraidoon, Daniel, Aj, Eric, Oh Hsen and Cj.

New Zealand Prime Minister

This is a DLO I made about the Prime Minister David Lange who was an amazing Prime Minister who stood up for New Zealand and what he believed was right for the country. I had a lot of fun researching about David and what wonders he brought to the country. I made this DLO with help from Eric, Aj, Cj, Daniel, Oh Hsen and Fraidoon

This is a jigsaw I made about the political parties I made this jigsaw with the help of Eric, Aj, Cj, Daniel, Oh Hsen and Fraidoon. When I was learning about the parties I found out a lot about how the election takes place and to me it's really interesting yet very confusing.

World E-Book Day

Today is world e-book day and to celebrate I read an e-book called okay for now. This book is about a boy named Doug Swieteck who is a baseballer who got a baseball cap from Joe Pepitone that was signed on the inside of his cap so nobody could even see that it was truly Joe's hat in the first place. If you want to see what other turn of events happen in this book you can find this book in the tamaki college overdrive library which is home to many books and you are sure to find what you are looking for.

Fantasy conventions: The princess bride

This week we have been doing a film study on the movie Princess Bride and we learnt a lot of things about how movies are made and the different aspects of movies but I decided to make a DLO on fantasy conventions which is a rule that most fantasy movies follow and it is what makes a fantasy movie, a fantasy movie.

Scale Drawing Enlargment

This week I have been working on a scale drawing enlargement. This is when I choose a drawing and put a grid over it, then double the size of the grid on another paper and use the squares as a guide to help you draw. The ratio in this case is 1:2 because I doubled it In this drawing, I drew the Excalibur from the game Warframe.

Tamaki Overdrive

This is a book about a cat and he is watching the thunder clan and the river clan fight for land. After a long fought battle the river clan was victorious and the thunder clan retreated. As the river clan went to celebrate there win a grey cat lay there in the field staring at the night sky. A tortoise shell cat emerges and the grey cat asks if there warriors are okay which they were luckily. This is a book I found in the Tamaki overdrive which is Tamaki colleges own online library. We were exploring the new books that tamaki overdrive have and the thing I enjoy about this is that we can read any book that we want without the hassle of visiting the library.

Kiwi Can taking risks

Today at Kiwi Can we learnt about taking and to start the session we did an energise which was bip bop bounce it's hard to explain but basically you have to say bang when he says bounce and if you say bounce if he only says bip or bip bop than you are out and you can also get out for being to slow. We also did an activity which was called hand soccer in this activity we played soccer with our hands except that everyone had to touch the ball before you could score and you could only use hands instead of feet we took risks by relying on each other and passing the ball around and there was a risk that the other team could get the ball and score for themselves

2 Word Sentence

This is a DLO I made about two word sentences. Two word sentences only have two words well obviously but one of those words is a subject and the other word is a verb so you can turn any compound or complex sentence into a two word sentence as well but you may need other sentences so it can make sense.

Year 8 college experience

Today the year 8’s went to tamaki college to learn about what it is like at college before we started we did the usual tech but we did out first session with mr grundy about making glass panes and then we had our morning tea after that we went to maths with Mr Jones and played battleships then we went to science with Stoddard and learnt about static electricity and how negative and positive charges can attract and detract, when there are two opposite charges they attract and when there are two of the same charge they try and get away from each other we had an example of this when Lyndon was touching static electricity his hair was starting to stick up. When that was finished we had Sub Way for lunch which was delicious and then went to English with Mr Stevenson where we had to memorise 10 words and get the corresponding pictures and finally we went to PE Mr Moyes and we played turbo touch.
