Teaching Ma'ata

This is my task for my attitude badge. I had to pay it forward, so I thought that I could teach Ma'ata how to solve 29 x 2. It was hard for me to explain but she finally understood. I think this was the best task from the attitude tasks because I had fun and talked to Ma'ata.

Staying Cyber Safe - CARE awards

This is my DLO talking about keeping Cyber Safe. This is for my Confidence badge. I talked about the age limits with social media accounts as it is a big deal if you're under-aged. I also talked about pop-up ads because sometimes they're not suitable for younger kids or cause viruses. 

Leader Nominations

Today we had our leader nominations for 2017 in Panmure Bridge school. The year 7's chose people they believed would be great student leaders, we then will choose 6 people from the different areas (Manaiakalani, Sports, Head Students,) one boy and one girl each area that had the values of being trustworthy, that can speak clearly, confidently and with expression and that is enthusiastic. We chose people who will motivate and interest people while saying speeches, and that will get involved.

Athletics Day PBS

Today we had the Panmure Bridge school athletics day for 2016. This year we were super lucky and had some helpers from Tamaki college who were guiding and helping with our activities. This year we were split up into three groups, and the leaders were Mishaan, Mia and Javeylor. The game that the year 7's played first was basketball/netball shoots were two teams would be on the court and have to shoot their balls in the hoops. One team would be on the side lines cheering on each team. Even when someone failed to shoot, each team would be supportive and help by encouraging each other on. I really enjoyed working with my team as they encouraged everyone.

Respect Song

In 1964/1965 a song called 'Respect' was released by Otis Redding. The song was sung by Aretha Franklin confidently in 1967 and signature song for the R&B singer Aretha Franklin. This song is about getting respect from their 'man' and having the same equal rights to men. This song is sung by many people like Kelly Clarkson in 2002.

Cyber Smart

Today we have been playing the Cyber Smart game. In this follow up, I was learning more about keyboard shortcuts which could help me in the future. 

Paper Planes Competition

Today we were learning to analyse and measure for maths. We redesigned our group planes by adding details and ideas from our groups' individual planes. In our group, we chose our best plane thrower so that they can beat the other opponents, we chose Tai as his arm movement was faster. When everyone finished their throwing, we then measured accurately our paper plane distance. They all had three tries, and in the end, we opened the windows and doors to see the difference between the three other tries.

Paper Planes

Yesterday for maths we were collaboratively working with our groups given by Mrs Anderson making paper planes. This activity was a silent collaborative challenge, where Mrs Anderson didn't talk, but she did put all the instructions on a presentation which we all had to follow very carefully. I worked with Sebastian, Oh Hsen, Tai, Breeana and Calvin designing different types of paper planes. We went on YouTube videos, websites and images to make our paper planes. When we all finished our design, we went outside to trial and measure (with our feet) how far it flew. Our whole group was helping each other and having so much fun. The plane that went furtherest was Tai's and Breeana's. 

Wright Brothers Facts Sheet

For reading, we have been focusing on the four structures in reading. Scaffold text, complimentary text, challenge text and self selected text. For our second activity we had to make a facts sheet about the Wright brothers.

Godwits DLO

This term we have been looking at flight, the year 7's have been learning about Godwits (Kuaka in Maori). We were learning about their migration, I worked collaboratively with Calvin and Oh Hsen and improved our team work skills. When we were researching, we had to narrow our search so that we can get the information needed, and putting the keywords only. I learnt that the Godwits migrate from Auckland to Alaska non stop, but stop at the yellow sea to refuel. We also tried something new, we made a digital sketchnote where we used shapes and text boxes.
