In this activity I am traveling to New Zealand by waka. I wrote a short letter to my friend telling them about my voyage to New Zealand and how I feel about moving countries. In my short letter I tried to describe everything I would see.
Hi, my voyage to New Zealand is beautiful. The water shimmers under the light of the sun and the mountains are eye catching. To be honest I was pretty nervous before I left. We just arrived on land and the landscape is breath taking. The water slowly rippling to the shore is amazing. The native trees here are very unique. I wish you could be here.
Sincerely, Tiava

Week 1 - Day 1 - Activity 1

In this activity I read a story called Maui and The Giant Fish. I have read many different stories about Maui: how Maui slowed the sun and how Maui brought fire to the world but I have not read this one. The story was about Maui wanting to prove to his brothers that he was a great fisherman. He weaved together his own fishing line and caught a huge fish.

The Next Foundation

The Next Foundation

Yesterday, Panmure Bridge School had some very special guests from Manaiakalani. There was the Woolf Fisher Research Center and the NEXT Foundation. They came to talk about the launch of the Summer Learning Journey 2017/2018. There were very important people at our assembly: the Board of Trustees, Mr Burt, Mr Sneddon, Mrs Pritchard and Rachel the founder of the learning journey program. At the assembly were shown the video that promoted the launch. Many students from LS2 starred in the movie. The NEXT foundation is a generous charity that funds programs like the learning journey. I have participated in the learning journey for two years and I really enjoy the interesting ways we learn about New Zealand.

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.

Tuesday, 5 December 2017


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.

Art Tech

Today I finished my art. The first thing we did was divide the piece of paper into five different parts. Then we drew five different images in the boxes. After we had to replicate the same images onto a piece of cardboard. My five colors I used were green, blue, yellow, red and white. The first thing we carved out was the parts that were white. Then we printed yellow onto a piece of paper. After we carved out the parts that were colored yellow and printed the next color. This process continued until we got to our last color. This process was called Reduction Printmaking. I find the art session fun. I learned how to print different colors to create a work of art.

Police Visit

Today we got a visit from the police. They flew a rotor craft to Panmure Bridge School to show and explain to us the different parts of the helicopter. They also brought a German Shepard to the school to show us some of their training and discipline. From that session I learned that a helicopter has thermal vision to detect people. They use it to see find where people are and how much people there are. A German Shepard is very useful for finding lost people or following a trail to search for something. Their speed is used for catching criminals. In my opinion I think that German Shepard's are very interesting because of what they can do.

Explanation Text - How Children Learn at School

This week for writing we've been practicing how to write an explanation. We did our writing with a partner, my partner was San Kyaw. We used the 1 to 10 writing to write an explanation about how children learn at school. First we planned our writing on the back of our paper. Once we finished we had to include a Title, Introduction, Paragraph 1, 2 and 3 and a Conclusion. 


This week we have been learning to use an app called Screencastify. This app helps you to record your screen or use your webcam to record your face. My partners Mataio, Zane and I had used Screencastify to show our learning. For this video we had taken an equation which we were focusing on. The strategy we used to solve this problem was division.

Rippa Rugby Interschool

Today the rippa rugby and rugby teams went down to Dunkirk to play inter-school rugby. Both teams had practiced and trained very hard for the inter-school game. The first team we played was against Pt England. Unfortunately we lost 1-9. The second team we competed with was Glenn Taylor. They were very hard and we tried our best but we had lost 2-4. After, we played against Tamaki Primary. It was a good game but we lost 2-9. Our last game was against Glenn Brae. We tried hard but unfortunately we lost 5-10. Although we lost all our games we tried our best and had fun.

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.

Fantasy Conventions - The Princess Bride

Ohhh! How times have changed from unrealistic looking settings to unbelievable editing. To celebrate the amazing achievements by Hollywood we watched one of the most famous movies ever, the Princess Bride. This 1987 movie was chosen to be LS2's movie study. Apart of our Princess Bride study we had to create a DLO either about fantasy conventions, shot types, or character introductions. I chose to do fantasy conventions. This movie consists of some of the most famous lines ever. The line is from Inigo Montoya (one of the characters) and it is 'Hello, my name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my farther, prepare to die.'

What is a coalition?

This week we have been learning about the elections. Ofa, Mataio, Zane and I had created a google slides about a coalition. A coalition is when a small party joins a bigger party to form an alliance and work together to get more sets. For example Labour and Green party have come together to form alliance to help each other. Currently we do not have a prime minister because neither party has enough sets to say they win so it all depends on Winston Peters. If Winston Peters goes for National or Labour the team will win.

Cross Country

All week my classroom and I have been preparing for cross country. Cross country is a running sport where people run a course that has been set for them. While training I learned to paste myself and always stretch before racing so it prevents you from injury. Stretching helps you to loosen your muscle and help increase blood flow. On Wednesday we had our cross country at Dunkirk. We ran in order of our year group. There were the boys year group and the girls year group. I'm a year seven girl so had to run five laps around the course. While running I always remembered to paste myself. Although I was tired I still kept running until I reached the finish line. In the race I placed 1st in my group. I was very proud of myself.

Tamaki Collage Overdrive

The Tamaki Collage Overdrive is a website that has a range of books you can read. If you like listening to books you can also select a book from the audio books section. They also have different kinds of books that range from toddlers to adults. I decided I wanted to read the book Avenged. I found the cover very interesting and eye catching. This book was about girl who was a servant at the Great Manor house. Many had died at her hands and to stop her the servant tried to kill her, but in the end she failed and lost everything. I really recommend this website for people who love to read.

Kiwi Can Week 7

This week for Kiwi Can we are talking about risky decisions. We talked about what is a risky decision and different examples of the topic. A risky decision is something dangerous. For example if your climbing a mountain there are risks and consequences. We played a game called handball. The rules were to only use your hands when controlling the ball. From the this activity I learned to work as a team and try not to make the wrong decision by not touching the ball with your feet.

How to Stand Up to a Bully



Bullying is not okay. When you see someone getting bullied stand up and speak out. Today my friends Mataio, San Kyaw, Josh, Lyric and I created a animation to send a message about bullying. When you see someone getting bullied don't just stand there. If you're getting bullied stand up for yourself. Don't look down on someone unless you're going to pick them up.

Sentence Smackdown

Today I worked on my simple, compound and complex sentences. First I had to turn a two word sentence into a compound sentence using a fanboys. After making a compound sentence I had to turn it into a complex sentence using an AAWWUBBIS. After creating my sentences I had to illustrate on of them. I decided to illustrate the two word sentence, I'm sorry. I found it a little hard to choose the right fanboys or AAWWUBBIS for the sentence.

Art Tech - Week 1

I like to draw and I couldn't wait for art tech. The first skill we worked on was our shading. We were given a piece of paper with shades that went from light to dark. We had to use a 2b pencil to try and get the similar shadings. Once we finished that task we moved on to doing the shades on some shapes. We had to have a light source so that our shading would give the affect that the light is shining on the shape. I found it a little hard to blend the shading to get a better transition but in the end I thought I did a great job.

How to be Cybersmart

It's always important to be cyber smart. If you weren't cyber smart and told someone your address there would be not telling what will happen. When online you always have to be respectful of others and keep personal information to yourself. I made this for one of my CARE Awards. From making this I learned a lot about how to be smart online.

It's great to be me because I'm energetic and really active. I never give up and I like to try new things. This is a word cloud full of words that my group and I came up with to describe why its cool to be our age. I found that kids my age are very active and can be obnoxious at times. It's great to be me!!

Possession Writing

For writing I focused on possession. Possession means when something belongs to someone. E.G The hairdressers salon. For possession writing I learned what it means when you put the punctuation mark somewhere in the word. I found this a little difficult because I got confused some of the times.

They're, Their, There Activity

For writing today I played a punctuation game called Learning Grammar. This helped me to practice my use of apostrophe's. An apostrophe is a punctuation mark that joins two words. I found this test a bit easy because I knew the different meanings of they're, their and there.

Anti-Suffrage Summary

The anti-suffrage group were against the suffrage movement. The anti-suffrage group were so determined to make sure that women did not get the vote. Using information from different sites Jeremiah and I put together a summary about the anti-suffrage movement. I'm not against women voting and if I could I would join the movement.

Reciprocal Reading Evaluation

In Reading today we have had a session with one of the reciprocal reading experts, and his name is Fraidoon. On our DLO we have the words people in our group Mataio, Sylis and Jeremiah can't define, things we need to work on and things we did with success. To do Reciprocal Reading we need to collaborate and take risks to be the leader. I had fun doing this and it was great to work with people who engaged in the learning as much as I did.

Contraction Writing

Contraction writing is a shortened form of a word or a group of words. You make these words using an apostrophe. This task for writing was to turn two words into a contraction. I found it easy to make them because I know what contractions are.

Building an mBot

Today I had the opportunity to work with some classmates to build and programme a Mbot. This challenge really got us to collaborate and it really motivated us to keep going. This Mbot was won by Lyndon from the GEG summit we went to last Friday. The hardest part of this process is programming it because we still are trying to figure out how to do it. Besides that I hope Lyndon persuades Mr Johnson to buy some for our school because it requires collaboration, determination and it is a fun experience I think every student in our school should experience.
