Fire Station-Summary

When we came back from the fire station to learn more about our inquiry topic which is about the community. We went into groups and to help us recap on what we learnt and how the firefighters help our community we filled in this summary plan. It really helped our group to work together and learn more and more about what we learnt.

Fire Station

For Inquiry our topic is about our community. We also learn about the safety of our community. So we walked down to the fire station in Panmure. The fire fighters were telling us about there job and what they do to help our community. This really helped my class learn more about how fire fighters use their skills to help us. The showed us around the fire truck and the tools which were really cool. The best part was when they showed us how they cut throw a car to save someone.

Maths Strategy


For maths our focus is to know which strategy to use for a question. To do this we got into either groups of three or two. In my group was Brooklyn, Javeylor and I. Our task was to create a DLO about this question that Mrs Anderson put on a presentation. After we had finished this DLO we then created this screencastify. We are explaining what strategy we used to solve this question.

For this weeks topic it is really important because it is all about our community. This topic helps me to help our community and understand more about my surroundings. To help my school a helicopter came and landed on our field which was amazing and was telling my school everything they do to help our community. The Police dogs also came they did some tricks and the police also told us everything they do to help us.

Learning To Motivate.

Today all the year 7 boys and girls were learning about the word motivate. This learning was really useful because we are nearly picking who is going to be our head leaders for 2018. This was fun because Mrs Anderson split us year 7 into groups then we got to make a role play about motivating others. In my group I had John Joshua W and Lyric. We got to show each other our role plays. When I was watching other role plays I realized that if I am a year 7 I should be motivating others to do their best.

Food Tech

Today the year 7's were in food tech we made chicken goujons. By making this we either had to get into a group of two or three. In my group was Shakaia and Sky. We were working in a team and collaborating with each other to get this done. This was challenging because we were remembering what ingredients we needed.

Film Festival 2017

This years Manaikalani Film Festival was special because it was the 10th year anniversary since this program has started. The films were so interesting because the schools did'nt just show their learning they should it in different ways. The films were also really fun to watch. The one I especially liked was the Tamaki Primary because they were talking about people who don't have houses. It really should me to care for others. I loved our film as well it was different to the other schools film. When we came back to school my class commented on other schools films it was really exciting to watch schools films that I haven't watched.

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.
