Why It's Great To Be Me?

It's great to be me because I have big goals and dreams. My favorite foods are salad, apples and butter chicken. I am easy to talk to and easy to ask advice for. I like talking to my friends in my spare time because they always make me laugh. My big goal is to graduate university and be qualified as a nurse. If I could wish for something, I would wish for a world with no wars.

Apostrophes - Writing Challenge

This weeks writing challenge was apostrophes. Apostrophes shows there is a contraction between two words. For an example, you could break down I would into I'd. This was great to revise because you could break down two words using apostrophes.

Clocks - Tech @ Tamaki College

Our clocks at tech have finally been put together. Today, we finished painting and glued the sides with the back of our design and the front of our design. It was hard gluing the two sides because there was paint stuck inside the holes. To solve this problem, I grabbed a safety knife and cut the dried paint out of the holes. Thank you to Ms. Ferguson for making the clocks and helping/supporting the year 8's throughout our clock journey.

Osteopath - Careers

LS2 has been exploring careers and jobs. To look at different options of careers that suit us, we completed a quiz where we chose if we were interested, not interested, fairly interested and neutral about certain things. One of the options that came up was osteopaths. I have never heard about this career so it was interesting. I learned about the skills and knowledge that osteopaths have to know, personal qualities, pay, and how many years that it will take to become a qualified osteopath.

Compass - Tech @ Tamaki College

Today at tech, we were making shapes with compasses. We made flowers, stars, and cubes with circles. It was fun and difficult since it was hard getting the perfect circle. I think I have improved with using compasses because I know that I should hold the black top to control the compass.

For the past two weeks, we have been looking at cybersmart. We covered choosing keywords, what matter and what doesn't, and how to speed up while you are surfing through the internet. This was entertaining since I was having fun while revising knowledge about cybersmart. 

Idiom Writing Challenge

This week's writing challenge was idiom. Idioms are a set of words that have different meanings to what the person has said. For an example, when someone says to 'Break a leg', they don't actually mean to break a leg, they mean to try your hardest. 

Suffragette Movement Sketchnote

Mia and I made an online sketch note using google drawing, based on our learning about the Suffrage Movement. We made a sketch note to make connections with our learning and to show what we have learned. Learning conversations helped us learn from our partner. It was definitely an important skill for this activity.

Kate Sheppard - Mia, Jorja and Nazella

Mia, Jorja and I researched about Kate Sheppard. Kate Sheppard is the Suffragette Movement leader. 124 years ago, the movement was created so that women were able to vote in elections etc. The Suffragette's finally achieved this in 1893, but Kate Sheppard still wanted to protest for women.

Rewindable Learning - School Production

At the end of term 3 PBS is performing a school production. Zoe, our dance instructor came in yesterday and taught us some of our dance routine. While we were learning, Mrs Anderson took a video of our group dancing. Today we used the video to practice rewindable learning. We watched the video and replayed it so that we could practice/revise our dance. I think that rewindable learning helped our group improve and realize that some moves we were performing weren't correct.

Impossible? Really? - Poster

Are you sure it is impossible? This poster is trying to motivate people to believe and never give up, because so many things which were thought wouldn't come true, has come alive. So is it impossible? Our topic this term is relationships with ourselves and others. One way you can have a relationship with yourselves is by telling yourself that it isn't impossible, and that it is possible.

Winter Learning Journey

During the holidays, I took part in the Winter Learning Journey. This consists of fun activities which helped my reading and writing while the holidays. The theme was based on New Zealand. Rachel, who is responsible for the Winter Learning Journey came to Panmure Bridge School today and rewarded the students who had taken part. She even gave out fun prizes to 6 people, including me. The amount of people who had taken part in the Winter Learning Journey was great, alot of LS2 students had taken part which is amazing. I got rewarded for the Panmure Bridge School top girl blogger. Thank you to Rachel and her team for making this possible and putting so much effort into making this a perfect project. I would definitely join in the next holidays because I was learning while having so much fun. 

Kate Sheppard and the Suffragettes - Summary

Mia, Javeylor, Zahra, Mishaan and I made a 25 word summary about what the Suffragette Movement was. The Suffragette Movement was a campaign created for a right to vote as women since they weren't allowed to. It was difficult making the 25 word summary, because we couldn't fit everything in, but we managed, by talking with each other and discussing what was important and what wasn't in the summary.

Hyperbole Example

Hyperbole is a form of language feature used to exaggerate. I made a paragraph which included hyperbole about an unfortunate walk to home on a sunny day. I will add more hyperboles into my stories to make it more interesting and detailed.
