PBS Blackout Day

Today, Panmure Bridge school students were allowed to wear black or red if they chose to. The colors were meant to support the All Blacks or the Lions (Who will have a match tomorrow). Most of the people chose to wear All Blacks gear and only a handful wore the Lions colors. The Kapa Haka group also performed the haka. The words All Blacks were spray painted on the field. Everyone was assigned a number from 1 to 9. If you had the number 1, you had to stand on the letter A. If you had the number 2, you had to stand on the first L (And so on).  Mr Wong used the drone to film it. After that, the whole school formed a circle to pass a rugby ball around.

Today for dance we were adding to our dance moves. My partner was AJ in this activity. We managed to come up with a couple of good actions. The next thing we needed to do was find the correct music. We had to make sure our moves would sync to the music. We also had to have a perfect timing. At the end I think our dance ended pretty good. we had good sharp angles towards the end.

Maths DLO

For maths, we had to make a DLO about a problem we had to solve. The problem was about a clothing spree, we had to work out how much the two girls saved with the discounts. I worked with AJ to create this DLO.

Respecting Cultural Traditions - Summary

This week is Samoan language week, so for reading we've been learning Samoan traditions. So to help us learn more about the Samoan culture we watched a video that included Mata'afa Elia Autagavia (who gave a speech on Samoan traditions.) Our task was to find the main idea in the video. In the video Mata'afa was talking about how students from schools performed their dances. He said that the students were doing a lot of the actions wrong. This DLO is a summary about the video. We decided to use a summary because it is more easier for us to find the main idea and we've previously used it before. The main idea is: We have to preserve the Samoan culture so people don't lose connections with their roots. For this activity, I worked with Shannon and Jeremiah.

For maths, my group had a very had problem. It was the type of problem I like because I like to do hard problems, or really hard ones. Once we finally solved it, we made a DLO about it. I worked with Shannon to make this animation. We had a lot of fun creating this DLO.

Language Feature

For writing, our language feature is Metaphors. The sentences in the table were slip in half, and we had to match them together. Then, we had to highlight the metaphors in some sentences. I enjoyed this task because I don't use metaphors often and it was kind of challenging.

Maths DLO

For maths, we had to figure out a pizza problem. We had to figure out how many people can sit at the smallest table in the pizza place. There was a clue in the problem which gave us part of the answer (Then twelve more people arrived. Unfortunately there were only enough seats for half of them). I really enjoyed solving the problem because it was hard, and I like to challenge myself.
