National Shakeout Day


Recently we have been learning about the National Shakeout Day. This event is held to remind people of what to do when there is a earthquake. My partners Mataio, San Kyaw and I worked together to create a DLO about earthquakes. We answered questions about what you should do when there is a earthquake and why it is important to be prepared for an earthquake. We also talked about how a earthquake can stat and the affects of one.

Netball Interschool

On Wednesday the netball teams went to the Auckland Netball Center to compete against other teams. I was in the year 7 and 8 purple team. Each team had about 6 or 7 games. Unfortunately for some games we played in the rain. The teams we competed with were Ruapotaka, Glen Brae, Pt England, Stone Fields and Panmure Bridge Green (our other team). In my opinion our team could work on passing and communication.

Spaghetti bridge



For inquiry we have been learning about structures. Recently, we have been working on making a bridge out of dried spaghetti. My partner Mataio and I worked with Julian and Lyric to create this bridge. We used rubber bands, tape and string to make it more stable. First we planned how much materials we will need and how long it needed to be. When we built the bridge we added more supports throughout the structure. We used bricks to test how strong our final product was. Our groups bridge was the strongest. It was able to hold 8 bricks.

Duffy Assembly - T3 W9


Image result for michel mulipola
Today we had a Duffy assembly. Micheal Mulipola a famous illustrator came to talk to us about why reading is important. He told us a story about when he was a child. Michael loved to draw all throughout his life. When he was younger he always wanted to make comic strips. He also liked collecting superheros, but  his favorite character was Green Lantern. Green Lantern stood out more than the other characters to Michael. He said that green lanterns powers where like his pencil. He made whatever he could think of come to life. Now he has become what he has always dreamed of. He is now a wrestler, a semi-professional gamer and a illustrator for comic strips.

Why Do People Build Bridges?

Why Do People Build Bridges?


Sturdy, strong and useful. Bridges are a vital part of society. Their contribution to
the world has been unparalleled as it connects different places together to create a
more functional community.


Let’s think back to the 17th century before the first bridge was built. People
struggled to get across rivers, they risked their lives, and were unable to transport
necessities. Before we had bridges it made transportation more difficult.  Bridges
improved our transport and helped to move essentials to different places.


These structures have the ability to span across far distances which makes getting
from point A to point B easier. This is because: there is nothing that can postpone
your trip, weather can not influence the outcome of your travels, so erosion and high
tides are less problematic.


Bridges are made to get over natural occurrences in a more convenient.
For example, If there was a river or another time consuming obstacle in between
two places, it will be quicker to go over it than through it. If bridges weren’t built,
it would make crossing a river more dangerous.


Bridges have become a vital part of society, as they have connected people
from other places; to gain the ability to cooperate with others from different parts
of the country. These structures have helped shape our community in many ways it
changed our modern world forever.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
For centuries around the world, bridges have improved the operation of society and have also benefited the transportation of necessities. To answer the question 'Why do people build bridges?' I have written an explanation which will hopefully tell people about the importance of bridges and how it has contributed to the shaping of modern society.

The Last Session Of HIIT


Today was our last session of HIIT. This is a research program held by AUT Research. This program is about getting puffed (Pau te hau). We have been doing exercises twice a week for 15 weeks. This session we did tap steps, push ups, star jumps and sit ups. Unfortunately I wasn't able to do the push ups because of my shoulder. Throughout the weeks of doing HIIT I have been leading the group with some of my classmates. HIIT has not only helped me to get puffed but I have also seen some physical changes in my fitness.

Exponents


Today for maths we were learning about exponents. Exponents stand for how many times the value is being multiplied. For example, 5 x 5 x 5 x 5 = 625. I found this activity easy because it was not difficult to understand the meaning. I completed a question sheet that had exponent problems. Afterwards I made a DLO using three questions from the work sheet. I explained what exponents meant and how to solve one of the problems.

Kiwi Certificate


A couple of weeks ago students from LS2 and LS1 partook in a Kiwi competition. This competition revolved around our capability of literacy and mathematics. Everyone who partook in the mathematics test would agree that it was difficult. I found this personally difficult because there were algebra questions which I haven't learnt about nor did I understand. Everyone who took part in the maths test received a participation certificate. For literacy I received excellence which was great. I found doing the literacy test quite simple but when it came down to the last couple of tests, I did not try my hardest and I gave up. I am still proud of my achievement and it was fun to take part in something that is something I enjoy doing.

Orchestra Trip - Auckland Phillharmonia



Students from Learning Space Two all enjoyed three pieces of classical music. I enjoyed all of the sounds of the musical instruments as the sounds were melodic. We all traveled by bus to the town hall in Auckland City. Mid way through the performance they introduced an opera singer who sang a Spanish song from the musical, Carmen. He was not very loud as the opera singer's back faced us as he sang to the people on the ground floor. Their were many instruments, including the harp, the tuba, the viola, and the triangle. All the people were color coded by a certain color. The percussion instruments were played by a person in green, while the strings were red. the woodwinds were blue, and the brass were yellow. To top of an amazing trip, a group of students from Saint Kentigern's and Ngatapawae performed a dance with the backing of a song from the ballet Romeo and Juliet. I felt that the dance did not have any relations to the love story of Romeo and Juliet. I believe the dance could have been a bit softer to work well with the song.

VR Reasearch

Today my inquiry group was having a fun learning experience with Virtual Reality (VR). People from the Augmented human lab at the Auckland University came to our school to do some research, because of this we got to have a try with Virtual Reality. For inquiry we have been learning about structures so the Virtual Reality was based around the first Panmure Bridge. After we did some test and interaction with the cardboard goggles and iPad interaction we had pizza. A huge thank you to Yvonne and her research team for making this happen.

Colon Illustration

For writing we have been learning about sensory verbs and colons. First I was given a sheet with missing colons. My challenge was to fix each sentence by putting the colon in the right place. Once I finished I chose one of the sentences to make an illustration of. I also gave an explanation of why I put it there and what it is used for. Did you know that colons can be used as a hook in a piece of writing?

Sensory Verbs

For writing one of our activities was a test sheet about sensory verbs. I answered 11 questions. I had to click on one of the options that I thought was the right vocabulary for the sentence. I found this activity easy because I have done this before. Once I checked my answers the results came back all correct. 

Reading - Percy Jackson And The Last Olympian

For reading we have chosen a book to do a review on. Me and my partner Zane chose to do something from the Percy Jackson series. My book was called Percy Jack And The Last Olympian. Throughout the sessions I have been reading the book for the first 30 minutes. So far I'm on page 40 in chapter 3. From what I have read the book is about Percy making a decision that would save or destroy the world from Kronos. My favorite part is when they have a fight on the boat that's headed to the Harbour of New York. My prediction is that Percy is going to have to fulfill the prophecy and make a decision.

Cupcake Problem


This week for maths we have been learning how to tell 24 hour time. Once we answered some questions we parented up to solve the rich task problems. My partner was San Kyaw. There were three questions, once we finished finding the answer we choose one of the questions to do a DLO on. This question was a cupcake problem.

How To Tell Analogue Time

How To Tell Analogue Time


There are a variety of ways that can help you to tell the time, one of the most common ways is using a clock,
watch or a device. These are called analogue clocks. They use numbers and hands to show you the current
time. Some use numeral numbers and some don’t have numbers on them at all. When you break down the
process it becomes really simple.

On the clock there are three hands. The hour hand, the minute hand and the second hand. The short hand
shows you what hour it is. The short hand slowly moves towards the next hour, and during that process it
will look like the hand isn’t on a number. For example, if the hand is in between 7 and 8 it is still seven because
the hand hasn’t reached the eight yet. The hour hand will change when the long hand goes to 12.


The long hand is to show what minute it is. When the second hand has reached twelve the minute hand moves
forward by one. For example, if the time is 8:09 and the seconds hand hits twelve the minute hand will move
forward by one making it 8:10. You could also say ten past eight.


When someone is telling you what the time is they could say words like “half past three” or
“it’s a quarter to two” and I know it can sound confusing. In 1 whole hour there is 60 minutes.
So when people say a quarter they mean 15 minutes. This is where knowing your mathematics comes in handy.

By breaking down the process it can be really easy to learn how to tell time on a clock, watch or device.
Telling time is actually a really important asset in life, because it could also be used for being on time to get the
most out of your learning.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
During our writing sessions we have been writing an explanation about how to tell analogue time. In my introduction I included a list to hook in my reader. Then in my conclusion I said something similar and gave them something to think about. In each paragraph I made sure to give an idea then elaborate and then give an example. At the end of each paragraph I made sure to write a sentence that would link it to the next paragraph. This helps to make my writing more interesting.

Why is sleep so important?

This week we have been learning about why sleep is so important. We created a DLO using the information we gathered from the websites we were provided. Our first challenge was to find the meaning of the list of vocabulary we found about sleep. We also learned about how some of the children around the world don't get the same amount of sleep. Once we finished creating our DLO we shared it with our classmates to show what we have learnt over the reading sessions.

Scale Drawing 2018


This week is maths week. Throughout the week we have been working on our scale drawings. This is my second time doing this. Last time I drew Kevin Hearts character in the movie "The Secret Life of Pets", a rabbit called Snowball. The first step was to find an image that you would want to draw. I found it hard trying to figure out what image I wanted to make an enlargement of. Finally, I decided on drawing Simba from Lion King. After my image was printed out I used a ruler to measure the border of the image and draw a grid. Each square was 1 cm. Then I multiplied it by 2 to get the enlargement. It was a 1:2 ratio. I drew my scale drawing by copying one square at a time. Once I finished I colored it in. Lastly, I cut out and glued on my name tag, the image and my finished drawing. Looking at my finished product I feel like I have done a much better job than last year.

High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) - Term 3 Week 2


Today was our third session of HIIT. The workouts we chose for this session was Mountain Climbers, Split squat karate kick, High knee sprint and star jump. We did these workouts 4 times for 20 second. I really enjoyed HIIT today because we all pushed our selves and as you can see in the image all our heart rates were on red. I would like to thank Mataio and Zane for helping lead the group. A special thank you to Mrs Anderson for cheering us on.

Reading - Inference

      



Today's session for Reading my group was working with Mrs Anderson. Today's group leader was Zane. First we learned about what inference is and how you could do it. Once my whole group understood the meaning of inference we worked together to write our own definition. Afterwards we looked at pictures of people and were they sleep. Then we created a google drawing to do a comparison between were we sleep.

Career Quest


Today for Inquiry our focus is careers. We used a website called Careers Quest to find jobs that we would enjoy doing. I answered 78 questions about my interests in a job. For example: Are you interested in working outdoors? My results gave me 100 jobs that fit my interest. I found a partner that had the same job that was requested for me. We worked together to research about the job. In the end we had a challenge to see who would make the most money with their job.

High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) - Term 3 Week 1



This week Thursday was our second session of the new term. The three exercises we did were Star Jumps, Tap Step and High Knee Sprint. We did each exercise for three rounds. We did them for thirty seconds and had a 30 second break in between. The reason we do the High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) is to get puffed (Pau te hau). At the start my goal was to get my heart rate into the red and above 100. Now, I have exceeded my expectations and got further then just 100. I was very proud of myself for leading the group with Mataio through the exercises.

ASB Get Wise



Today Jayden has came to talk to us about how to save our money and how it will benefit us in the future. To help us understand Jayden created a scenario where our groups went on a holiday in Fiji. Our budget was only $1,800 and we had to consider: passport, flights, accommodation, insurance, food, shopping, and activities. There was a range of choices with different prices. This taught us how to create a budget plan that will help us save up for something nice such as new shoes. Their motto is save some, spend some, and share some.

M&M's Maths Learning

Today for maths we were learning about M&M's. The first activity we did was estimating how much M&M's would be in the packet and which color would there be of the most. After that we opened it and tested our estimation. Some of the people in my group were right and some people were wrong. Once we gathered our information we put into this DLO. In this presentation is the history, facts, founder and graph comparison of the M&M's.

HIIT - High Intensity Interval Training


This week's session was about strength. After we put on our heart rate monitors we did a stretch to open up our muscles. In learning space 2 I have learned that it is important to stretch before doing any physical activity to help the muscles lose. We got into the groups we were in for the last session. There were 6 people in each group. First we had a timer for 40 seconds put on to tell us when to switch. My partner Fraidon and I started on squats then went to push ups and stopped at pull ups. We did this rotation with 4 other people 3 times. It was very exhausting!

Kiwi Sport Reflection

For Kiwi sport this week we played a game called Rush Tag which is similar to bull rush but instead you have to try and take the rippas from the opponents. After this we finished of with a game of Rippa Rugby. For this game we were splited into 3 teams. Our goal for attacking is to pass the ball to someone that can find a space to run and our goal for defending was to spread out, make not gaps for the attacking team, and run towards the attacking team as a line. At the end we were really fatigued but had a really enjoyable time with Hamish .

Pewter Casting - Tech - T2 W7


This is our second session of our new rotation in pewter casting. Today's tech session was about finishing our workbooks and going on to making our designs. Once I finished uploading the images onto my workbook I chose the final image I would use to create my design. I also wrote down The reasons why I chose the image and why I chose to do it for that person. I decided I would want to give the chef's hat necklace to my mom because she has done a lot for me. After I finished my work book I printed it and used a technique to copy it from the piece of paper onto the piece of wood. Our teacher Mr Grundy helped me to create the opening. He taught me how to use the Scroll Saw to cut out my design. I have melted the pewter and poured into my design so I am now up to sanding it. These pewter casting sessions are helping me to understand the process of making a necklace out of pewter.

HIIT - High Intensity Interval Training

High intensity interval training is a programme our school has part-taked in to help the Auckland University to help their research. This test is to see if doing physical activity helps us develop a stronger sense of focus in our learning. For the first couple of sessions we have been doing split squats, split squat pulse, split squat jumps, and star jumps. I found doing these exercises physically challenging but also very fun.

Kiwi Can - T2 W8 - 2018


This term our theme for Kiwi Can is integrity. Integrity means to be honest or to do the right thing when no one is looking. This week the value we have been learning about is accountability. Accountability is when you take responsibility for your mistakes or your actions. At school integrity can be shown to one another by not playing games within class during learning. Accountability can be shown when you break something and you admit that it was you and apologize.

Classroom Ages

This week one of our tasks were about fractions. The question was asking us how many children are there altogether. The first step I did to figure out the answer was to look at the question an understand that it said there was already 4 children in the classroom. So 4 + 4 = 8. Then I multiplied it by 3 from the 2/3 which equaled 24. 2/3 of 24 equal 16 so there were 16 ten year old's. 1/2 of the remaining 8 are 9 years old which means there are 4 nine year old's. The rest are 11 years old. I used my fraction, division and multiplication knowledge to figure out the answer.


Newspaper Article - Cinema Attendance


This week Ms Kirkpatrick maths group examined a continuous data that showed the cinema attendance by age group and year. First we were to answer a questions based on the data. OfaJeremiah and I worked collaboratively together to answer it. Some of the questions were: In which year was attendance highest for the 25-34 age group? What happened in 1992 and 1994 to the attendance for 15-24 year old? How else could the data be displayed? It was really interesting to see that in 1999 15-24 year old attendance to cinemas increased comparing it to 1984 where it was really low. At the end Ofa and I were to make a newspaper article based on the data. We were make our own Newspaper headline and we decided to call our article 'New Blockbusters. Captivating or monotonous?'

Meeting Our Younger Students


As head students we need to make sure that our students know who we are and what we can do for them. We kept it short and simple so that they can understand it. We talked a little about how we can accompany them if they are feeling sad or do not have anyone to play with. We would like them to cite us as role models and as someone they can lean on. I express my gratitude to Mrs Millward, Miss Cockeram, Mrs Hiddleston, and Mrs Mclane for giving up time for us to introduce ourselves.

Ruler Relfexes

This week for inquiry, we learnt about human reactions. We had a small challenge that included simply a ruler, a
partner, and our reactions. Our task was to attempt to grab a ruler as fast as possible. We were given 3 different
reactions to test. Visual, where we had to grab the ruler just by watching it. No count down, go or anything. Next
was aural, where we had to close our eyes, and where only told "GO" for when we could attempt to grab the
ruler. No countdown, no looking, no touching, just a simple go. Finally, was touch. We closed our eyes, no words,
just a tap on the shoulder letting us know when to grab. The partner that I was given was Tiava, and we had a lot
of fun working together. What we needed to do next was graph our data. Although to make it even better, we
were to group up with another pair and graph all of our data in one big graph. So for this, we chose to work with
Sanujan and John. We had a lot of fun all working together, and in the end, made a pretty great graph.

Tiava Hypothesis: I think that I will be best at Test 2, because I think that signals to the brain will be faster than
sight, or touch.
Jack Hypothesis:  I think that I will be best at Test 1, because I think that my eyes will signal my brain faster than
anything else.

Evaluation:

Jack:
I found this interesting, as my hypothesis was for test 1 to be the one I was best at, but instead it was test 3 that I
was the best at. Meaning that my hypothesis was incorrect. I must’ve been incorrect because I didn’t realize that
I sent signals to my brain faster through touch that sight. Although there is a chance of it being just a one off
time.

Tiava:
I found this surprising because my hypothesis was for test 2, but I excelled at test 1. I think that my hypothesis


was incorrect because my body and brain reacts faster when I can visual see the ruler drop than hear the word
go.

Fraidoon & Alex Maths Problem

Today for one of our maths activities I solved a salary maths problem. Fraidoon and Alex both got a job at the same time and they both had different salaries. The problem I solved was how much would they have earned in 5 years. My goal was to problem solve involving money. I also used multiple operations to solve this equation.

Travel Data

Today for one of our maths activities I did a pie graph about the different transportation that people take to school. I also compared our results to the school in England. This pie graph shows that the most used transportation is a car. We also were given questions to answer about the English results.

Ages

Today for maths one of our activities were to solve an age problem. To solve this problem I used subtraction, addition, division and multiplication. I found this activity easy because I have had experience with this. My goal was to solve this problem using multiple operations.

Seasons Poem

This week we have been learning about poems. We read a poem called Seasons. This poem was about the repetitive cycle of the tree throughout the seasons. After reading the poem I created a google drawing answering the questions and activities we were given. In this DLO I find four metaphors from the poem and I give three examples of metaphors also.

Lung Capacity in LS2

This week for inquiry we are learning about the human body system. For today's activity we measured our lung capacity using balloons. We took one deep breath in and then out into the balloon. Once we measured everyone's balloons we put the information onto a google spreadsheet. I turned the information into a bar graph. Looking at this graph you can see that Julian has the biggest lung capacity and Avalon has the smallest lung capacity. From this graph you can see Jack, Jericho and myself have the same lung capacity.

Body system


Today for inquiry we were learning about body systems. I learned that there are 11 body systems in your body. We were given a link to read about the different body parts and what they do. After we played a game were we either had to assemble the bones of the human body or label the different bones in the body.

Hineahuone (The First Woman)

This week for reading we have been learning about a Maori legend called the first woman (Hineahuone). This story is about how the first woman on earth came to be. Tane Mahuta (god of the forest) prised apart Ranginui (father of the sky) and (Papatuanuku) mother of the earth. Once Tane Mahuta and his brothers were finished making all things on earth they noticed that there were no other people to enjoy it with. With that being said they went and begged the gods to help them make the first woman on earth. They used red earth to form her and the breath of Tawhiri Matea, god of the wind to give her life. Once learning the story my pranter Zane and I used storyboard to retell the legend through pictures.

La Tour Mollet d'Auvergne - The Unfinished Beer

Today we got to learn about a man named La Tour Mollet d'Auvergne (Ted). He served as a machine gun battalion in 1941. Unfortunately he was killed by the German elite. Ted was only 35 years of age. There was a poem written aabout Ted. It was about him leaving a beer at a bar called Waihao Forks and saying he will come back for it when he gets home from the war. Sadly he never did.

Sailing Have a Go!

This Wednesday 23 people were given a special opportunity to learn how to sail, I was lucky enough to be a part of the that. We packed our bags and took a bus all the way to Okahu bay. We got to met our instructor Maria who was from Argentina. First we were taught how to set up the boat we would be sailing on. Then we put on our sailing gear and started to put our boats into the water. We learned how to control the boat and after we started to playing games like netball and follow the leader. Although I returned to school with a few cuts I really enjoyed the special experience. A big thank you to Mr Ogilvie for organizing the trip and Mr Johnston. Ms Kirkpatrick and Mrs Colenbrander for supervising us.

Memorial

Yesterday we started reading a sophisticated picture book called Memorials. It was written by Gary Crew and Illustrated by Shaun Tan. As we read through the book we created a presentation to record information and take apart the story to get a better understanding about it. Once we finished we chose one of the slides from the presentation to blog about. I chose to blog about that Shaun Tan said about the book. In this slide I explained what Shaun Tan's quote meant and I also added an example of the quote from the book.

Summary and Feeadback - Maori Battalion



In reading we have been looking at different forces that had a huge impact in world war 1. My reading group are researching native contingent (Maori battalion). To help us get a better understanding from the text, we read the text as a group then we gave our partner feedback and constructive criticism that will help them in their reading. After that we created a summary. First we had to find 20 interesting words from the text, then we chose the 6 most vital words from those words. We then used those words to create our short summary of the book we read.

TinkerCad - Design Process

Today at tech we created a google slide on how to use TinkerCad. I took screenshots of what I was talking about to give people a better understanding. The first time I used TinkerCad I found it easy because my graphics teacher Mrs Ferguson helped me.

Public Health Nurse


Today I have completed an activity for my attitude award. It is about the public health nurses in our school and why they are important. I think they are very important because they help people to be healthy and prevent rheumatic fever. They are also role models because they have positive attitudes and are devoted to help people.

Maori Battalion

Captain Malcolm McGregor was an aviator. I chose to research him because he is very inspirational and was a very smart man. The top DLO is our opinions on if we should remember the soldiers of the Maori battalion. In my opinion I do think we should remember. These are my groups DLO's we created to help us understand the text we are reading.

Angles - Multiple Rays



Today SanujanJeremiah and I partnered up to complete a worksheet that was based on finding angles. To help us we used something called a protractor. First of all we found it pretty challenging because we were doubting our selves and we were using different techniques that did not work. After a while Miss Morris told us how to use it properly. After that we were either right or an angle out. We found this very interesting and a bit challenging.

Angles Math Problem

Today in maths my group was learning about angles. We were given a task sheet about solving the missing angles. I used the rule: The interior angles of a triangle all add up to the same value 180 degrees. I choose one of the questions to write about. In this google draw I explained how I solved the problem and what I used. I found this activity to be easy because I have learned about angles before.

Duffy Assembly


Today this Tuesday we had a Duffy assembly. This is when we receive our Duffy books that are donated to us by mainfreight. We also had some visitors that came to talk to us. Matt Johnson is a rugby player and Taylah Hodson was a BMX rider. Taylah is trying to get her law degree and Matt is trying to be a PE teacher. They taught as that reading is important for a lot of life changing opportunities.

Life At PBS


Today I created a collage of photos about life at PBS. I did this to get my silver respect badge. Panmure Bridge School is a manaiakalani, that means we do a lot of blogging and we take part in lots of outside functions. In our class room our goal is to get 5 blog post a week. People from other places come to our school to teach us about different things like water care, sports and fitness.
