Lions In The Garden (The Book That I Choose)


Today we used the Tamaki College website called Tamaki College Overdrive. I found my favorite book series, the book I have read today is called Lions In The Garden, this book was written by Chelsea Luna. So far this book has been interesting and gave me Ideas!... 

Kiwi Can Session

Today we had our Kiwi Can session with Mr Malu and Mrs Latoia. We talked about taking risks. The word risk defines the word chance. Our warm up game was called  Bip Bop Bounce. We had to split up into two group so the boys had their own circle and the girls had their own.  The  rules for this game is that if the person in the middle of the circle  said to any person in the circle "bip bop bounce"... then that person has to say "bang" before that person ever said "bounce" to stay safe from loosing. The other warm up game was called Hand Soccer. This game was very fun and hard at the same time because you had to use you hand to touch or hit the ball and also trying to hit the ball into the goal was harder than I thought! because there were a whole lot of people in the way. These activities were just like excising and they were fun.

Life At Panmure Bridge School (CARE award activity)


Today I have created a collage showcasing life at Panmure bridge school as part of the CARE awards for this school. I found this activity fun and exciting. 

Learning To Use Synonyms

This morning Mrs Anderson's writing group created a poster showing examples of synonyms. A synonym is a word meaning the same but a more powerful word than the boring word that everyone uses.  I also found out that it was hard using new words that I didn't know of and how to spell. We used google dictionary to find these words. Using new words were better and it made the sentence more powerful. This was a very fun activity trying to find another word meaning the same but more powerful and a word that we didn't know of.

Dance Practice


Today and yesterday we practiced our dance for the production at the end of the term. We were split in to three groups. The songs we did were Footloose, I see red and Staying alive. I was put in the Footloose group. We started off slowly, then practiced doing it super fast because the song had a fast beat. We all tried our hardest to do the dance super fast. When we finished, our teachers  called us down to reveal our dances to the class. We tried this very fast, twice. When we finished revealing our fast dance we got a round of  applause. We quickly sat down and carried on watching other peoples dances. This was a rewindable activity because we were able to go back to the video from yesterday to help us today.

The Diffrence Between 'A' And 'An'

Today we were learning when to use 'A' and when to use 'An' before a word. If a word begins with a vowel which is A-E-I-O-U or silent 'H' (Eg; Hour or Honor), we use 'an'. We use  the letter 'A' for all other words except for the letters in the vowels. The photo shows the sentences we wrote to practice using the letter 'A' and the word 'An'.

Scott looked in the old mirror. Someone looked back at him. The little boy in the old mirror looked a bit similar to Scott. “Come on,” cried the boy, “Or we’ll be late,”. Scott took one step forward and he felt himself getting sucked into the mirror. Scott looked around in a strange way. He was unbelievably in a humongous arena. There he was in front of a tall man. The man walked towards him and gave him his shield, sword and helmet. Right there in front of him was a weird looking man wearing such strange clothes. The man ran up to Scott with his sword and tried to cut off Scott's little head covered with blond hair. Scott stode up for himself he ran up close to the weird looking gladiator and tried to stab him with his sword, but he had missed because the sword was too heavy. He’d dropped the sword and landed on the gladiators biggest toe. The man started shouting and hopping around, suddenly his helmet slammed shut! The humongous gladiator ran out of the arena and screamed “Ouuuuuuuchhhh!”  

What happened in the middle?
Next came the lion who stared at the boy. The lion started snapping at the boy and ran after him. Scott reached out to scare the lion. As he scared the lion the lion ran out of the arena. The emperor's flicked a coin to Scott.

What happened at the end?
As Scott took his armor of the sunlight made the shield gleam like the old mirror did. As he saw his reflection, he felt himself getting sucked into the shield. And back into his room he went. Scott looked into the mirror again and saw nothing but himself.

Eel

Strange Arch, stone walls, statues

What happened in the beginning?
Dad, Carla and Rob helped Dad get ready for  SCUBA diving. Dad was going to search for the lost city of Atlantis. “Can we dive with you?” Asked Rob. “Ok” cried Dad.  “But you must stay close to me”. They searched and searched but there was no sign of the lost city of Atlantis. When they got back to the boat Rob said to Carla “wasn’t it spooky down there? I thought someone was following us.” “You’re just chicken,” cried Carla. “I wasn’t scared at all,”. Carla and Rob wanted to find out about Atlantis. “Go to the Museum in the town” said Dad “and ask someone there.”
Carla and Rob went to the Museum. “Can you tell us the legend of the lost city of Atlantis?” cried Carla. The man said that Atlantis was once on land but the people of the city were bad. Their god made a huge earthquake and the city sank under the sea. “Did all the people drown?” asked Carla. “No” said the man. “The legend says they lived on in their underwater city but sometimes they come up to the town. They are strange people with gills on their necks, just like fish. But beware, bad things happened to people who search for Atlantis!”

What happened in the middle?
“That was a spooky story,” said Rob. “Maybe it’s not safe to dive.” “I’m not scared,” said Carla. “It’s just a story!”. Suddenly Rob grabbed her arm. “Look at that strange women. Maybe she’s from the lost city and she’s got that scarf to hide the gills on her neck!” “Rubbish!”  cried Carla. They went back to find Dad. He was getting ready to dive again. “I’ll come with you,” said Carla. “But Rob thinks the stories about Atlantis are true and he’s scared. “I’m not scared. I’ll come too!” shouted Rob.
They dived again.

What happened at the end?
This time Rob saw an eel coming towards him. Rob looked at Carla and waved at her. The eel snapped at her. She swam as fast as she could to get away from the eel. When the eel swam away they saw strange buildings, statues, Arches and stone walls. “I think this is the lost city!” cried Rob. Carla and Rob looked up they saw a big stone head. When the stone head came sinking down it had hit Carla’s arm. They swam up to the boat. Carla and Rob had explained everything to Dad. Dad had said “Stay on the boat i’ll dive to see if it really is,” When Dad had dived he had seen nothing. The lost city of Atlantis has disappeared.

Lunch Times At Panmure Bridge School

Lunch Times At Panmure Bridge School
Let me tell you something about lunchtimes at PBS. As soon as everyone hears the bell ring as loud as it can, kids run around their class rooms like crazy people, and also grab their lunches as fast as they can like they haven’t eaten in years. All I  hear is little kids screaming like there was no tomorrow. I see a lot of kids getting excited and walking around on the field telling forbidden secrets. I always see kids running around the playgrounds playing tag. As soon as the bell rings to tell us ‘lunchtime is over,’ every walks as slow as a bunch of turtles back to their rooms. “You know what?, lunchtime is my favorite time to play at school!


Today I have created a story describing what lunch time is like at Panmure Bridge School. Lunch time is the longest play time at school. This means that you get more time to play out doors with your friends. The most challenging thing was that when we started our writing session with Mrs. Anderson was that we had only 4 mins to get all our words down. After we finished writing I worked with my partner to change somethings and add in others because some of her writing didn't make sense.

How Maui Slowed The Sun (Te Ra The Sun).


I have created a comic on how Maui slowed Te Ra the sun using story board that. I found it hard finding the scene (Back-round/Settings) and also trying to find what each brother would say to one another. I found it interesting using story board that.

Duffy Show

SashaToday after lunch time my matariki group went to the Duffy show. When we had arrived we heard a lot of singing but the song we all heard was how far i'll go in moana. We quickly sat down and started taking part of the singing. When everyone arrived they soon started the show. During the show I was learning new things... This show helped me understand why reading is important. The characters in the show were Global hero, Zane, Duffy, Bush fire, Cyclone and the Austrian women. Thanks to this show I learnt something new!

Keep New Zealand Beautiful! (Winter Learning Journey Activity)

Dawn breaks on Day #7 – the final day of my Great Kiwi Road Trip. I wake up early, ready to make the long trek back to Auckland. Along the way, Curious Kiwi stops at two beautiful places, Taupo and Rotorua, for you to get out and walk around.

List of what I can do to keep my neighbourhood beautiful;

  • Pick up any rubbish that is on the ground even though it isn't mine
  • Make sure eveyone doesn't throw their rubbish on the ground
  • Help younger children understand why it is important to not throw any rubbish on the ground by creating posters/signs that have pictures of children putting rubbish into the bin.

Day #4 Swimming With The Sharks (The Winter Learning Journey Activity)

For this Winter learning Journey  activity I will pretend that by the end of day #3, I will have seen a lot of the north island of  New Zealand. I have enjoyed it and I am excited for the next phase of my journey-the ferry trip across the Cook Strait from the bottom of the north island to the top of the south island. I will be spending the next 2 days exploring the south island before I head back up to Auckland, via Wellington (the capital of New Zealand).

Why We Have To Ban Fishermen From Fishing At Farewell Spit;

Over these past few months  fishermen have caught dolphins in  humungous nets while fishing in the Farewell spit oceans. I think that we should ban fishermen from fishing at Farewell spit because of what has happened to dolphins and other types of fishes.

The Winter learning journey

For the winter learning journey activity,
I have to imagine that I will start the day by traveling 63km north up state high way 1 from Dunedin to a place called "Shag Point". I have to write a short poem about native Aotearoa to see what would happen next.
Being The First To Arrive In New Zealand (poem);

As Suspicious I was...
I quickly took my life jacket of.
I was wondering around trying to find help
but  no one seemed care so I  quickly took cover and tried to find my friends but I could find them because I was the only person there out of all of my friends.
As it started to rain I found a piece of shelter.
No one seemed to notice me.
As cold as I was lying on a piece of cardboard waiting patiently for someone to help until one of my friends finally arrived. As happy I was standing under the piece of shelter with my friends.
