Political Parties

A few days ago our class was looking at political parties here in New Zealand. Nazella, Savelina, Brooklyn and I worked together to create a slide show about Helen Clark and what she did as a prime minister. We used our smart searching skills to find out facts and more about this important lady. We have done this to our best of our ability.  Fun fact about Helen Clark. She was the 5th longest prime minister to stay in parliament. She cares about people and has always has a positive smile. This was apart of the elections that are coming the Saturday.

Political Parties

Our main focus this week is political parties. Today my group Nazella Savelina Brooklyn and I made A DLO on prime Minsters and which party they support.

On the Overdrive site, there are a lot of different varieties of books you can chose from. From humour, action, science fiction and loads more.

Say It Tika Say It Right

This week is Maori language week. Vodafone and google maps have partnered up on a website called say it tika. Google maps sometimes have trouble saying Maori places here in New Zealand. I chose to do Opahi where I am from because tourist always get this place wrong. I did two other places to like Taupo and Whakamaru. Kia Kaha New Zealand keep our native language true.

Netball Prises - Runner Up

Today at assembly the girls who singed up for after school netball were finally given there certificates for coming 2nd in our grade. This was great to have came 2nd because we have had only won four games but it was all worth it in the end. I have enjoyed playing and representing Panmure Bridge School this year during the netball season. This was our netball team for 2017.

Winning The Curriculum Survey Prise!

Today at assembly I won a prise. In that prise there was lots of things that I could use to make me breakfast tomorrow morning. This was an big surprise and I didn't expect for me to win. Mr Johnston brought a green hat with all the names of people who bought back there curriculum surveys to be in the draw to win. Luckily I was that one person who won. I have never won any prise draws from any school I have been to except for prise giving two years ago. Hooray for me and the others who gave it there best. 

Tech At Tamaki College - Spaghetti Pies

This morning we had tech at Tamaki College. Savelina, Sky and I  made Spaghetti pies. The ingredients we needed was spaghetti, cheese, bacon and pastry that you have already made or store bought pastry will do. This task was semi hard because some of the pastry that we made wasn't big enough so it wouldn't fit in the muffin tray. We have had fun creating the pies and cleaning up that was fun. Next week is and adventure because we have no idea what we are making until next time.

Tamaki Library Overdrive - Mr Mingin

This afternoon we went on the Tamaki Library site so we could read books that we thought were enjoyable enough to read. As we are not going to our school library for the rest of this term this was an great opportune to read something different. This book hooked me in right away because of the introduction. I was amazed by this book. If I had to give this book an rating it would have to be a 4 out of 5 stars because the book cover was really funny. I am currently on chapter 5 and happy to keep going until I finish the book. This book I think the main character was a little girl because of the writing. Most of the writing was correct but some of it not so much. I would recommend reading this book because this is a child friendly book. 

Kiwi Can - Taking Risks

This moring we did Kiwi Can. Our topic this week was taking risks. Our Kiwi Can teachers Mr Malu and Miss Latoia talked to us about taking risks and what they meant? For our energiser we played a game called bip bop bounce. How you play this game is just like playing bang. There is someone in the middle that person will be saying bip bop bounce. That person can mix the words up however they want. Then the people playing have to say bang. But there is a catch, you have to say bang after the caller says bounce but you cant say it after they say the phrase because that may lead in elimination. After we finished our energiser we played hand soccer. The risks of playing this game is scraping your fingers on the ground falling over and trying to get a goal for your team. We all enjoyed playing this game. I saw a lot smiles and support from one another from both groups. Wacthing others have fun was fun to see.

Read Theory

This morning I did Read Theory. Read Theory helps us with our knowledge on what we read. This site has helped me on stretching the vocabulary in what I have read in a book or online. I learnt a new fact in a story I read. I learnt that there are little animals in out toothpaste called Plantimals which I think is pretty cool. This site is great for people that want to read but don't have the time to pull out a book. I have come a long way from the first time I saw this site. I can only get better at what I do. I look forward to using this site more as the year goes on.

New Tech Rotation!

Today at Tamaki College we finally started our new tech rotation for this term. We made Oreo milkshakes. Savelina, sky and I were one group. We all had job to pro fill. Savelina's job was to dry the dishes, Sky's job was to pack away the dishes and finally mine was to wash. We did a lot of measuring and mixing now this part was fun.  To finish off our milkshakes we had Mrs Heka our teacher put chocolate syrup and whipped cream. Before we could drink our delicious milkshake we had to clean up our mess that we made. If we did not clean up properly we had to clean again. Once we cleaned up properly we got to try our master pieces. I found making the milkshakes kind of confusing because of all of the different measurements but I still thought that they were yum.

Why It's Great To Be Me?

It great to be me because I am young and free. I have different opportunities than others do. We all have a bright future ahead of us and all of us are capable doing something new each day. I like exploring at new limits because you never know what you will see at the end of the rainbow until you go for it. I was working with Brooklyn to complete this word cloud. My favourite word in this would have to be dreams. Because they tell you what might happen in the future. 

Monday, 28 August 2017


Our main focus was capitalisation for writing.  This was  a really easy task to complete because I had an Idea already on what to do. This has been one of my favourite DLO's to complete so far this year. What we had to do was fix all the sentences on the right and answer them correctly.  This is example of what capitalisation looks like. So in that case this might help you in the future if you ever do something like this.  High possibility's it will.

Complete The Contraction

Today we had writing. For this task we had to complete the contraction. This was a really easy task to complete because all we had to do was write the contract word. My favourite word that I contracted was it. An example of an contraction is I will. The contraction to this word is I'll. My layout has a lot of room but that is OK. Here are some other contractions that you might like.

Dancer - Career DLO


 Yesterday I started a DLO about what I want to do in the future. When I grow up I might choose to be a dancer. Why? Because when I was about 5 years old I loved dancing. In this half detailed DLO I have put in the opportunity you will have getting a job as a dancer and more. This was really easy to complete but it was semi hard as well. One tip I would have to tell you is make sure you turn up with the right gear at all times. But dancing is not my favourite. Yeah. It is actually painting. I am not a very good artist and have no idea on what to do but I enjoy it a lot. This is my so called future. Hopefully it all goes well.

Tuesday, 15 August 2017


Through out the day I was finishing my hexaflexagon. I enjoyed crating my own designs and using my own colours. A hexaflexagon is a three sided shape that has different patterns on each side. Something I found hard about this was tring to put it together and something I found easy was choosing the colours to use. This was part of a maths project that turned out to be quite fun. My favourite side on my hexaflexagon is the on in the photo.  I hope we do this again sometime in the future.

This morning we went to tech. We were finishing our digital story about healthy living in the Tamaki area. I am nearly finish this task and soon I will be moving on. We had a reviler teacher. Her name was Miss Rose. This was not an hard task to complete because I already knew what to do. Mine is based off exercise because it is important to get exercise to keep fit. I liked working on the animated story because I could create it how I wanted to.

Kate Sheppard - Sketchnote

Yesterday Mishaan and I created this Sketchnote about Kate Sheppard and the suffrage movement.  We shared information with each other to help us with our learning. This was an easy task to complete because the Kate Sheppard DLO we did gave us an idea of what to write. Mishaan and I did four boxes each. I did the top ones and she did the bottom ones including the picture. The   answers and the questions are all based on the suffrage movement.

Rewindable Learning For Dance

Today we were practising our dance for the end of the term dance production. Our dance coach was Zoe. We were split into three groups A, B and C. In our three groups we have different moves and songs. Those songs are Staying alive, I see red and Footloose. The song we are doing is Staying alive. We have practised over and over this is called rewindable . Rewindable learning is when you can watch or practice something over and over. This was really fun in every way possible. We had our very first dance practice yesterday and we have already picked up on a lot.


On Monday I started an illustration about idiom. Idiom is a group of words known by how much its has been used. I have put in different examples about idiom. An example of idiom is "Fish out of water". Meaning you are somewhere where you don't belong. This has been one of my favourite illustrations to do so far.  I have enjoyed creating my own illustration using my own words. This was not hard to do but it was not easy trying to find the right idioms. The site I used to find my idioms is from Your dictionary

Kate Sheppard

Yesterday afternoon Mishaan and I started this DLO about Kate Sheppard the leader of the suffrage movement. In our DLO you will find out different information about this powerful women. We have made this to the best of or ability. With the help of our teacher we got this done. We didn't know anything about this lady until we had a group conversation about who she is and what she did. Coming into this group as a newbie I think I have learnt a lot about this one person who changed the world with just her voice. The suffrage movement was a group of women that wanted the right to vote in the elections. This a sudden success. This is what we have done so far. Because you never know you might learn something yourself.

Digi Tech

Today at tech we went at Tamaki college. We have one more week of digi tech until we move on to our next activity. Our main focus was on healthy living in the Tamaki community. We had to make a movie on scratch to explain what healthy living is. I chose to do laziness. I am making a movie on why being lazy is not a good idea. I am still working on getting my movie done but I am almost finish. I have learnt the different parts and things I can do on scratch. The easy thing to do was pick the characters because I already knew what to choose. The hard thing to do was to choose the right background to fit my theme. This was a fun task to do.

My Personal Passion

This afternoon I created a DLO on my personal passion. What is my personal passion? Well my personal passion is actually netball. I have been a fan of netball since 2010 and have loved it ever since. I have been in the netball inter-schools since 2013. If you where wondering who my favourite netball player was it is Maria Tutaia. This is for my Excellence and Innovation C.A.R.E award. I have just recently started played a new position which is goal shoot. I really never saw myself as a shooter because I always thought I wouldn't get it in the goal. This task was not difficult at all because I am writing about myself and who know me better than me?

Why Is It So Important To Keep Oral Storytelling Alive?

Sky and I have been working on why it is so important to keep our oral storytelling alive. We both found this task challenging because  not being able to make a 25 word summary. We got around our mistake by making a 27 word summary. We learnt that Maori storytelling just has to be read by our culture but from any one around the world. This is what we got up to.

How Maui Slowed The Sun.

This afternoon Sky and  I were working on  storyboard that to finish our comic strip about how 'Maui slowed the sun.' As you might already know this is an Maori myth passed on from generations. We have used our own words in this comic strip. We have told three parts of the story because this was a set task. I found this task somewhere in the middle because it wasn't hard but it wasn't easy. I really enjoyed doing this because I found this fun to create. Instead of telling you what the story was about we show you. It is kind of like show and tell. If you read the story you will find out what part we have chosen to do. Trying to find the right background was tricky because they were all modern backrounds This is what we got up to.

Ordering Fractions Game

This moring for maths I played a game I think you might enjoy playing for yourself. It's called Ordering fractions. In this game you have to put the fractions in order from highest to lowest. I recommend you to play this game because this game can help you on putting the fractions in the right place and if you get it wrong just try try again that what I did.

I am going to so much fun reading it because it will give me something to do. I have read all of my Duffy books in one day because I get bored and don't want to move anywhere. My favourite books are Tom Gates, Eric Vale much much more.   Here is our class and what they chose to read. Remember "It's cool to read".

We have made this to the best of our ability.  I have enjoyed making this DLO because we did not get any help on the information. My favourite part was doing how many sisters there are. Why? Because I already knew what the sisters name were. This is our learning in our own words.

We wish the All Blacks all the best for there game against the lions.

What Is Soft Plastic?

This afternoon I was learning about soft plastic. Mrs Caroline ( one of our first aid teachers) was teaching LS2 about soft plastics and what that is. I created this DLO about what soft plastic and facts you may or may not know about soft plastics. For example if I had a piece of glad wrap I would be able to scrunch it into a ball. That is considered as soft plastic. If I had a biscuit tray and I tried to scrunch it into a ball it will be a lot harder to scrunch up. This is my finished work. I really enjoyed doing this, have fun reading!

El cadejo Read Theory

For reading I did Read Theory. I was reading a legend called the El cadejo. This legend is about a wolfs that can be black or white. The white El cadejo is a good wolf that can help travellers find there way and give good luck. But the black El cadejo hunts other animals and even people. I really enjoyed reading this story becaus eit sent chills up my spine as I continued reading. You should try this amazing website because you might just learn something new.
