GEG Student Summit


Last Friday, Mrs Anderson took five students to the GEG (Google Education Group) student summit where students from schools all over Auckland presented some things that they learnt. Shannon, Jeremiah, Tiava, Lyndon and I went to present about our awesome animations. We taught some people how to create create characters, backgrounds and how to make a successful animation. We also went to other people's presentations (Robotics and Breakout) and we had a lot of fun there. In robotics, we learnt how to programme a robot and in Breakout we had to find clues to open a locked briefcase.

CARE Awards

This DLO is for my attitude CARE award. For the task, I had to research the role of the PHN (Public Health Nurse) in our school and tell others how they help us. The public health nurse in our school comes into our class every day to make sure that no one has a sore throat or a skin sore.

Samoan Language Week

This is a animation that I created with Shannon for Samoan Language week. We researched about the Samoan form of cricket (Kilikiti). It is kind of the same as normal cricket, with a few differences - like the size and shape of the bat.

Dance

Today, LS2 has been doing rewindable learning with our dance. We were practicing our dances for our school production. We got split into three groups. My group is doing the song Stayin' Alive and the other two groups are doing I See Red and Footloose. Yesterday, Zoe (The dance teacher) taught us the moves to our songs and because Mrs Anderson took a video of us, we watched ourselves doing the dance so if we made mistakes (Which we definitely did) we could work on it the next time we practice dancing. Thanks to watching ourselves so we could fix our mistakes, my group (Which are doing Stayin' Alive) has definitely improved a lot.

Women's Suffrage Movement Summary

In reading we have been looking at the women's suffrage movement in New Zealand which was led by Kate Sheppard over 100 years ago. Our task was to write a 25 word summary about what the suffrage movement was about. To finish this task my group and I had to work collaboratively, talk with each other and ask questions. We learnt that Kate Sheppard and the rest of the women that were apart of the suffrage movement had a huge impact on the way New Zealand is today.

Winter Learning Journey


Over the holidays, there was a competition called the Winter Learning Journey. The topic was the great Kiwi road trip. In it, you could learn about many different places in New Zealand. It was created so that Rachel, the person who created the competition came to Panmure Bridge school today to hand out the prizes. Lots of students got a certificate for participating in it and six students got top prizes for coming 1st, 2nd or 3rd (Two students came tie for each place). Oh Hsen and I came first, Alex and AJ came second and Eric and Ofa came third. All six students that won a prize were boys but Nazella also got a prize for being the girl who did the best. A big thanks to Rachel and her team for creating the winter learning journey which was a great opportunity to learn and have fun over the holidays.

Maths

Today for maths, I created a DLO about my learning. First, we had to figure out three problems, and then we had to put the third one on a DLO. It was kind of hard as first we had to figure how much money Sione gets in the first season and then, in the second season, the amount of money he gets changes which complicated things. 

Writing

 
Today, I finished a writing task about hyperboles. Hyperbole is a extreme exaggerated statement or claim which aren't meant to be taken seriously. We had to write a short story about our unfortunate walk home. In our story, we had to include five examples of hyperbole.
