This week during Reading we have being working on Current Events. Each person in LS2 were able to choose a topic from kiwi kids news, NZ Herald or Kea Kids News. The topic I choose is called World's first plant selfie. Pete is a fern that takes photos of itself every 20 seconds. I found this topic interesting to read because it is really cool how Pete can take selfies of its own (itself). During this task we wrote a summary. To begin with we wrote down 20 important words, 6 most important words and 5 important sentences. At the end we changed our 5 important sentences into 10 syllables. If you would like to read my 10 syllables it is under the sub heading (My 10 syllables).

Water Filter

Last term for Inquiry Joseph, Nidhi, Miiana and I. There were groups of 4 or 5 with 1 year 7 as a leader per group. My group's leader was Miiana. The challenge for each group was to try and make your group's water clear. Before we made the experiment each group planned on what materials they were using. Using the materials we had. 


2019 RWC Stadium Capacities

This week I have been working with Angela, on the 2019 RWC Stadium Capacities DLO. Before we started our DLO's, we were able to work in peers or in a Trio. As a class we were able to choose, a question that was solved in our Maths books. We chose 49,970 of 3/4 question. How we solved this problem: 49,970 ፥ 4 = 12,493.5 then 12,493 + .5 = 12,494 x 3 = 37,478 (that's how we got our answer) .. The question was (If International Stadium Yokohama only half filled. How many spare seats would there be)?

Explanation : LGBTQ

How do you feel about the LGBTQ commuinty? Nearly everyday humans question themselves about what they identify with. The meaning of LGBTQ is lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender. Q is for those who are questioning themselves, on what they identify with. Do you know the colours of their new flag?

Just imagine if you were LGBT, wouldn't you want respect from your family and friends? So why not show respect towards those who are LGBT? People in the 1990's - now, have gained a lo,t of respect for those who are lgbt. Showing them the respect they need will make them feel more self - confident.

Did you know that over 11 million people in the world are LGBT? Being understanding (towards their feelings) and accepting (understanding how they feel) is showing Empathy. Example: understanding someone and sharing feelings with one another can lift a lot of weight off both of your guys shoulders.

Not much people today can show tolerance. There are two sides (disliking things and agreeing with things). In my opinion i think we should be showing tolerance to those people that are still figuring out their identify, which does that a lot of time.. We all have different opinions about things.

I have finally come to my conclusion. I talked about many things about the LGBTQ community, but If you were still wondering about the meaning of the LGBTQ colours on the flag is: Red means life, Orange means healing, Yellow means sunshine, Green means nature, Blue means harmony and Violet means spirit.

This week during Writing, LS2 (yr 7 and yr 8) have created a explanation of our choice that showed Respect, Empathy, Tolerance or something else of our choice.  I decided to go with LGBTQ for my explanation because it was really easy to go with Respect, Empathy and Tolerance. In the beginning we had 10 minutes of planning, 40 minutes of writing and a few minutes of drafting our work. The next day in the morning block we all had some time to proof read our writing.

Early Maori Enterprise

This week during Inquiry I worked with Florence, Fui and Victoria. As a class each group had a chance to say there syllables out loud that had 5 sentences. I found it so scary presenting my syllables to the class. The first text at the top was our original one, but then changed the sentences into 5 sentences and the syllables into 10.
