Christmas In Italy

Yesterday, LS2 was working on our collaborative challenge. We were split into groups of four (I was working with Zane, Tiava and Viva) and had to work together to create a DLO about how another country celebrates Christmas. We decided to chose to learn about Italy. We found out that Italians go to a Midnight Mass on Christmas Eve and they call Santa Bobba Natale. In Vatican City, one of the traditions there is going to the square at noon on Christmas day to get the Pope's blessing. We all worked collaboratively and used our smart searching skills to find our information.

Sports Leader Speech

 Today I said my sports leader speech in front of my class and my teachers Mrs Anderson and Mrs Kirkpatrick. At first I was nervous but when I started I felt really confident. I think I would make a great sports leader.

Hi my name is Tiava. You should vote for me as the 2018 sports leader. I want to be sports leader because I am active and I really enjoy sports. I am good at interacting with children and adults and I am a very confident speaker. I am a reliable and trustworthy person. I want to step up and be a leader to guide other people and be a great role model. I want to represent the school and set a good example for the younger children and my peers at Panmure Bridge. For as long as I’ve attended Panmure Bridge School I participated in all different kinds of sports. I enjoy sports so much and I know there’s much more to learn. I have a lot of knowledge about the different sports that I’ve participated in that I can also share with my fellow students. If I were to be chosen as sports leader, I promise to do my best to ensure that all students who wish to participate in sports, do so and have an enjoyable time learning and playing as a collective group effort. I am confident that I have the qualities of being an amazing sports leader.

Google Scratch Game

This week LS2 have played a scratch game made by Google. The goal is to program the bunny to collect all of the carrots. Before every level they add a new feature to the programming like: arrows, turns and repeats. I found this scratch game easy because I have had experience with scratch before.

Today Zane, Lyric Dallas and I had took three photos to show some examples of what teamwork looks like. This week the year sevens have been learning about leadership. Teamwork is when you cooperate well with others to work together. I think it is important to have teamwork because then you can learn from each other and be more social.

Hazel Visit - Summer Learning Journey

This Friday we got a visit from Hazel who is a member of the learning journey program. She came to tell us about the 2018 Summer Learning Journey. This years theme for the learning journey is going back through time. The top three people who do the most blog posts and comments will get a prize like: slime, fidget spinners and legos. I have had a great experience with the learning journey program and I feel very confident about this years learning journey.

Tamaki Collage

This week on Friday we spent the morning at Tamaki collage. After our tech sessions we were split into three groups: robotics, social studies and PE. I was in robotics. First we needed to know the two main things for programming which is an event and an action. We were split into four groups of three. Two groups would work on programming the M bot and the other two groups would work on programming the M drone. Te Wai, Harlem and I worked on programming the M bot. We first made the M bot do simple things like run forward and turn left or right. Then our challenge was to program our M bot to get through a course. It would have to go around chairs and cross the finish line. We did a lot of hard work but it didn't go as planned so in the end we used the computer keys to finish the course. I really enjoyed our session of robotics with Mr Dunn and Max.

Inter School Athletics Day

On Tuesday the year 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8's went to the inter school athletics day. There were teachers and parents that helped the children to get to their events. My events were 100 meter sprints, high jump and relays. I placed first in high jump and fifth in the 100 meter sprints. I enjoy sports and I had a really fun time at athletics.
