Pt England vs Tauranga Intermediate



Last week our Rugby 7's boys went over to Tauranga to play against other teams in 7's tournament. Fortunately our boys reached the final and they had to play against Tauranga Intermediate. Our task for this Google Presentation was to read an article then reflect on what was written on it. For the last slide we had to list some features that the writer might have missed out in the article.

Maniakalani Filming Experiences

It's nearly time for our Film Festival and we've been having lots of fun planning & filming our movie for this once a year event. For this special occasion schools from the Manaiakalani Cluster have to prepare class for class movies about anything at all like, comedy, MTV, game show & etc.

During our filming some of us had to just memorize our script on the spot and it was really hard to get our lines right. In our film we have two hosts & I find it really facsinating because both there are two different hosts and they have the same name.

This year in Rm 3 it has been such a struggle trying to film our movie with our school production rehearsals in the way so then we had to film during our learning times. Luckily we were able to complete our movie before the cut off day today.

Phases of the Moon

Hello blog viewers, welcome to my blog. This is a continuation of my learning about our solar system. I have just begun learning about the moon phases and about the Waning & Waxing.

“Phases of the Moon & how they appear the way they appear”


When less than half of the moon is lit by the sun it is called ‘crescent.’ When more than half of the moon is lit by the sun it is called ‘gibbous.’ ‘Waxing Gibbous’ indicates the part of the moon that is lit and growing. Whereas the ‘Waning Gibbous’ is the part of the moon that is lit and shrinking.

There are eight phases of the moon in all. The lunar cycle begins with the ‘New Moon Phase’ this is when the moon is not visible from the earth because the half of the moon that faces away from the earth is lit and we can only see the dark side.

To be continued...

Our Solar System

This is our Solar System. This image is an image of poster that a friend and I created. I'm sure that you've seen a diagram like this. This display was just to show our understanding of the Solar System. You can check out more of my learning about the solar system later on in my learning journey. Thank you.

Fun With Shapes

Walt: Draw a 2D representation of a 3D model. Draw a plan for the side, front and top view of a 3D model.



These slide are just a continuation of our learning from Monday the 28th of august. This presentation will show all of our images and if our buddies had gotten the 3D model correct.

Oral Language

WALT: write a speech to present to take part in our speech competition

video
Task: In team 5 we had a speech competition. For this activity; every student had to write a speech of any topic. All of us students had to present our speech to our literacy class and we were given a mark by our teacher. We were marked out of 25. To get high scores we had to memorize our speech & look up at the audience. We also had to project our voices so that the teacher heard us from the back of the classroom. 

Speech Finalists: After the teacher had marked us, there were 3 top students selecte to take part in the competition against the other speech finalists from the other classes. Fortunately I was chosen to be one of these finalists along with Yvonne and Atareita.

Which speech appealed mos to me?: When it came to when we had to present our speeches;  most of us were quite nervous. But when we presented it wasn't really obvious. I really enjoyed Mubashir's speech. He spoke about wanting to be a president for one day. He stated some really good points on how to be a cool president. I reckon if Mubashir we to be a president he would be a great one.
There were two judges Mrs Judd and Ms Tapuke. They are the one's who are deciding which person wins the part as being the speaker who gets topeak at our school assembly one Friday. I can't wait to find out who that lucky person is.

Geometry

Walt - 1): draw a 2D representation of a 3D model 
2) draw a plan for the side, front and top view of a 3D model
Our task was to buddy up with someone and draw a 2D representation of a 3D model.  We had to use our maths books to line out the blocks to make a rocket ship from three views; top, side & front. After we drew our designs we had to show it to our buddy so that they could use actual blocks to make our design. This task was obviously based on geometry. I think that the purpose of this activity was to test our selves to see how much we knew about geometry.
