PBS Holiday Blogging Challenge - Day 1 - Bonus Activity

For day 1's bonus activity I went on to the Rainbow's End website to checkout the other fun rides they had. I noticed the very cool looking Scorpion Karts. Using the information I got from the website I put together an explanation and a 25 word summary about the Scorpion Karts. I recommended this ride to my friend Lyric because he likes racing.

PBS Holiday Blogging Challenge - Day 1 - Activity 2

For day 1 activity 2 I researched about a ride at Rainbow's End called the Stratosphere. I did some research to found out what is the minimum height to ride the stratosphere. I also answered why I think there is a height restriction. While watching some videos of people on the Stratosphere I noticed there are two different options. You could choose to ride very extreme or less extreme. I thought both rides looked very fun.

PBS Holiday Blogging Challenge - Day 1 - Activity 1

At Panmure Bridge School the student leaders have created a holiday blogging challenge that helps you to progress you learning throughout the holidays. For this holiday blogging challenge it gives you a virtual tour of New Zealand. For day 1 activity 1 it is about a fun theme park called Rainbow's End. I used my smart searching skills to find out where Rainbow's End can be located in Auckland, how much does it cost for a family pass and how much it would cost for my family to go.

Scale Drawing

For term 3 we have been looking at scale drawings. Scale drawing is when you find a photo of something and get a bigger paper to enlarge it. The first thing we had to do is find and image and draw a grid over it. Then you do the same thing to the bigger paper but twice as big as the original. To help us create this piece of art, we used ratios. Scale art is like a mix between Art and Maths.

Kiwi Can

This Thursday was our last day of Kiwi Can. In Kiwi Can I have learnt about emotions, other peoples feelings and self control. The first activity we did we had to split into four groups. In the middle was an object. We had to turn the object for example a hula hoop into something else. Our group turned the hula hoop into a base from baseball. I found the game really fun and it really made us think fast. The next activity we played was handball. The rules were not to use your feet to kick the ball. For this activity we were split into two groups and were given a number. If your number was called you had to get up and try to score. It was a really fun way to finish off Kiwi Can for the term.

Dance Through The Decades Production

Wow, it has been a long journey. For nine weeks we have be learning our dances to celebrate the 60th birthday of Panmure Bridge School. With the help of Zoe our dance instructor our school has put together a dance production called A Dance Through The Decades. After all the hard work and practice we have finally learned our dances. On the night we performed I didn't feel as scared as I thought I would be. I was in two dance groups, Pacifica and I See Red. In the end I thought we did great!!

Prime Minister Profie

Apart of our learning of the 2017 N.Z. elections we created a Presentation of all political party leaders in New Zealand. In LS2 we voted and Labour came up on top with 41/45 voting for them. In percentages that is 92% to Labour, National on 4%, Greens on 2%, and 1 person that did not vote.
