victorian family.jpg

For this activity I used my imagination I imaged that I was in the 1800's and that I had nine brothers and sisters. I will now tell you how I would I feel about having a lot of siblings. 

I think having alot of siblings would really be helpful because when I need help I could turn to nine others to help me. I would be m dream to have a lot of siblings especially when my parents past I could live with on of my siblings.

Summer Learning Journey-Week 1 / Day 2 / Activity 1

This activity was fun because I learnt about the traditional house of the Maori culture called "Whare puni". I compared this house to my house.

Same things-It is really not big and I have a lot of people staying inside.
Difference-We don’t have history at the back of my house. But also we don’t have the sculptures and the brown colour outside.

Youtube Video

For this task I first watched this YouTube video about Waka Ama. Then I picked if I wanted to be in a Waka Ama team or not. After this I wrote why I don't or want to be in a Waka Ama team.

I would love to be in a Waka Ama team because it would really help my fitness a lot. But also help me to collaborate with others and make new friends.

Te Ika-a-Māui

For this activity I have just landed in New Zealand. I went on this link and it will take me to a website I could read all about the story Maui and the giant fish. After reading this I found 3 interesting facts about this story.

1 - Maui would always get angry when the brothers won't let him go fishing with them.

2 - Maui's ancestor Murirangawhenua gave Maui a jawbone.

3 - Beacause the brothers were so greedy this story has been a part of Aotearoa.

Traditional Christmas Food

Christmas is coming up so we are learning about different cultures and foods. But we are also learning by using maths which I think is amazing. For this task we first had to pick one country. Since I did the Philippe's I thought I would do the Philippe's. Then I picked a famous type of food that is traditional to my family and to the Philippe's. I compared them both at the end.

Today we had a lot of important visitors to our assemble  to launch the summer learning journey with the Next Foundation. As we had our assembly we were filmed. When we had our assembly Rachel from the summer learning journey was talking to us. She was really proud of our school and how almost everyone of us joined the learning journey program. The Next Foundation is supporting the summer learning journey to keep this program going. Then Bill Komode from The Next Foundation also came to talk to us about the learning Journey Program. But he was also talking about how he is amazed about how our school has a talent for participating in the summer learning journey. In the middle of the assemble he showed us the film that they made about our school. The film was about the summer learning journey. It was really outstanding how the film turned out to be. It was fun having the camera crew here in our class. Some of us were featured in the film which was exciting. After the assemble we got to have free launch from Eat My launch it was so delicious. 

Collaborative-Philippine Challenge

The Collaborative challenge was fun. In my group was Javeylor, Fatongia and Carl. Our first activity was to pick a country to make a DLO about how they celebrate Christmas. We chose the Philippines because Carl was also Philippine and we didn't really know about how the Filipinos celebrate Christmas. Then we made a screencastify to tell whats happening and to show and tell our thinking. After making this presentation we learnt a lot. Our next task was to create a Kahoot about different country's. We used our smart searching skills to get this task done and we also worked as a team well. This made it easier to finish off our task. This was for Inquiry beacuse we were also learning about Christmas.

Speeches-Head Girl 2018

Hello my name is Savelina I am striving to be head girl for 2018. To become head girl I need your vote.  I chose to be head girl because I try my best. But that’s not all, I encourage,motivate and respect younger students and seniors as well. To help me I’m always confident to talk to anyone. Every day I always put great effort to become a great example to our little students. Plus I’m trying to inspire young students to become a great leader in the future. 2018 is going to be a new and improved year with great leaders and I know that for a fact. If I become head girl I guarantee that you will never regret it. Yes I understand that things will never be one hundred percent but I promise you I will do my best. When I thought about being a leader I doubted myself . Yet as the time went past I learnt that no one is perfect even me and here I am. I will always try, try and try to learn more and more. The qualities I have for a head girl is a lot but one quality I have is that I’m really responsible. I will always make Panmure Bridge School a wonderful school by showing the pleasure of being here. I know that there are others that are going for head girl but I know that I will try harder to make this school a better, happier place. Whether or not I’ll become head girl at the end of the day I know I have tried my best. This is why you should vote me, Savelina, as head girl for 2018. Thank you.

I have put myself forward to be head girl for 2018. It was challenging but I wanted to achieve one of my biggest goals and being a head girl was one of them. I wrote my own speech and I nominated myself so I put all of my thinking into my speech. I hope that I will get this role because I know I would try to make this school a better place .

Explanation - How Children Learn at School

How children learn at school
What did you learn when you were a child? Did you learn by talking? Many kids learn by asking friends questions to learn more. A lot of people when they were a child liked to tell their ideas to express themselves by doing what they love.

Kids also follow people they look up to. Were you one of them? Children are good observers they like what other people  like to do. They learn more in partners because they are learning what they might not know. There are people in our community who help kids learn as well. They really look up to their community.

Kids love to play and have fun with friends. They love to explore by trying new things. When kids explore they love to climb and swing and adventure to see how high they can get. Exploring can really help a child to learn more.

Kids disagree to agree to have an opinion. People always have decisions on what to pick for what they might want to do in the future. Children can always be picky with what they want. They will always be with someone and do what they do but they just want someone to be their role model.

We learnt a lot this makes us to really be smart for college and university. Kids will always look up to someone or follow who they would want to be. Going to school is a really big deal and having an educational life as well.

Today I went into to partners with Zane to plan and write an explanation. We have done steps 1 to 10 to finish this explanation we worked together to finish this. It took time but we manage to get this done. Other groups checked our work which made our explanation better.

Fraction Strategy - Screencastify


Today I have made a screencastify to show my thinking for one of my DLO's for maths this was really fun to do. To do this I first planed with this document. I add my DLO then typed my script and also added what I was going to do with my cursor to make my screencastify easy to understand. After doing this I downloaded the screencastify app. I opened my DLO by clicking on the link that I had on my planning sheet. I opened all of the tabs that I needed to use I clicked on the app then recorded. The video will automatically save onto a folder in your drive called Screencastify. I changed my video so anyone with the link can access. I opened a window and embed my video. This is how I created my screencastify. I would want to say a huge thank you to Mrs Grant for showing us how to make a perfect screencastify.

Kiwi Can: Taking Risks

For Kiwi can our teachers are Miss Latoia and Mr Malu they really help my class to understand different challenges in life. Today our topic was taking risk and our energiser game was called bip bop bounce this game helped me and my class to control our body's. First Mr Malu points at someone and says bip bop bounce and who ever he is pointing to that person has to say bang just before he says bounce. It gets harder because Miss Latoia comes and they both say bip bop bounce but not to the same person. Then we had a game of hand soccer this game is really simple it's just like soccer but we use our hands to hit the ball into our goal. We all had to use my teams support to overcome the challenge. The challenging thing was that we had to pass to all of our team mates before getting the ball in the goal. But it helped me to make sure that I use a lot of team work and we had to make sure that everyone takes part.
