Gymnastic Reflection | Week 5

This week in Gymnastic we were learning new tricks. We first started with a warm up game, the game we played was called Stuck in the mud. Each round a new peer of people will be choose to be the tagger. If you get tagged you will be in this pose that Steve gave us to do until someone came and saved us. After we did our warm up game we started to do some stretches. After our stretches we started on our rotation 1,2 and 3. It was a bit different on the rotations but a bit the same. My favorite rotation was the last one because I loved doing the dive which is a bit similar of doing a front flip. I learnt how to a dive because I haven't tried it before but as I started doing a lot of times it became so fun. I also learnt how to have a tight grip on the bars because it was hard for me to hold onto the bar. Next week or the week after that we wont be having gymnastic this year anymore because we will be having a brand new kiwi sport.

Major Yuri Gagarin Animation

This week in reading we used our creative skills to create an animation or an ex planer movie about Yuri Gagarin, in groups. My group and I decided to create an animation. Before we created the animation, we planned it as a group. On a piece of paper we drew a S to include the information we wanted about Yuri Gagarin from the start to the finish. A fact about Yuri Gagarin is that he was the first cosmonaut to orbit earth in Vostok 1. After planning the animation, we started to create our animation, we chose a leader to tell us our job of creating our animation. We all decided that I was the right leader of our group. My group and I worked together as a team and helped each other to complete our animation. I think that everyone in my group had great create skills and are really talented in drawing digitally.

This week during tech we all have finished our designs. I have created a Game of thrones clock. We have being working on our designing for a few weeks. Today was the last day of designing our clock. I really enjoyed painting my clock and designing it. I'll like to give a big thank you to Ms Ferguson for helping us create our clock that took for a while. 

LS2 Stardome trip

Last night at 5:45 we went on the school bus to go to stardom to learn more about the planets in the atmosphere. Once we walked into the building we went inside this cool room that kind of looked like we were outside. We all found a seat and waited for a few minutes until the show started. We learnt so many planets and what the stars meant and what it looked like in images and pictures. My favorite planets are Neptune and Pluto because they have beautiful planet colours and how Neptune rains with diamonds. Afterwards we went to look at some pictures about the planets, laika (first animal to go into space), Yuri Gagarin (first human being to orbit the earth), checking our weight and we were able to play this fun game called Angry bird.

Information Report

Image result for king penguins

King penguins are 3 feet tall  and they’re the second tallest penguin alive. Did you know that king penguins swim underwater for about 20 minutes?

King penguins have orange spots (near the neck and near their ears). Males are slightly larger than females. King penguins kind of looks similar to a emperor penguin but an emperor penguin has a different size. The European explorers discovered king penguins thought that king penguins were the tallest specie alive. They are the brightest specie out of all penguins.

King penguins are carnivores. They love to eat (small fish, lantern fish and squid). Here's a shocking fact that humans don’t know (the mother gets the food while the dad looks after the chick). The mother uses their beak as a spoon to feed their chicks. They eat 13 pounds per day.

King penguins are warm blooded. They live in subanatracia on the northside of antarctica. In their island it has snow, water and it is really cold. Did you know that antarctica has 10 islands? Well I never knew that fact.

Did you know that king penguins are scared of a killer whale, leopard seal, skaus and an giant petrel. They travel in groups of 5 to 20 individuals.

I have finally came to my conclusion. I have written what their is diet, appearance, habitat and behaviour. Did you know that their scientific name is called  Aptenodytes patagonicus.

This week in writing we have being practising our information report writing skills. I have chosen to write about a king penguin. To do this practise whole information we used a text box that helped us write our information. We have a structure that we made up as a class called tips (title, introduction, paragraph and summary). I learnt that king penguins are 3 feet tall.

Tamaki College Reflection

This week at Tamaki College the years 8's including myself spent most of the day at Tamaki college for a organisation. We went to the library to have our morning tea. During our morning tea we met our student helpers that helped us out when we were stuck they. After our morning tea we went to two classes doing Science and Maths. Our first class that we went to was Maths. We learnt how to do Co-ordinates. We were trying to make an alien shape. Unfortunately I didn't get to finish it. The last class that we went to was Science. We did some experiments that felt really cool. For our safely we used gloves and glasses for our experiments that we were doing. My favorite experiment doing was the rocket one because it was so fun seeing it go high in the sky. We did so many experiments at Science. At the end we went into the Tamaki College school van to get back to school. Thank you to the Tamaki teachers for teaching us new skills in Science and Maths. I am also excited to go to college now because it is going to be more challenging for me and I'll have more subjects in college then Intimidate.

This clock is going to be given to my Mum for her late mothers day gift.

A difficult trick that I learnt today was the chairs because it was hard for me to hold my grip. My favorite rotation going to was the last rotation because it was so mucbfun doing the backward roll and doing some handstands into the bridge while waking in the bridge.

Kiwi Can Reflection

This week at Kiwi Can we have started our new theme Integrity. Integrity means doing the right thing even when no is looking. For an example if you find keys and someone is wondering were their keys are, by doing the right thing is giving the keys back to the owner. I learnt how to play a brand new game that I haven't played before which was called 3 sports. For our activity we played role plays. Each group got given names for what they were role playing. But during the role play we had to have someone or people telling the truth of what happen. My group of Victoria, Florence, Jonathan, Pua, and Neveah got giving window. To finish off our Kiwi Can session we played some GKQ.

Place Value Partitioning

This DLO shows how I used the strategy of place value partitioning to solve addition questions. During our maths lesson we practised using this strategy with number and word questions. When I was answering the word question I had to look for the maths so that I knew what numbers to work with. My screencastify shows the strategy I used. The more I used this strategy the easier it got.
