3rd Paideia Seminar!

On Tuesday the years 5 & 6 extension students had their 3rd Paideia Seminar. Well this was only my 2nd Paideia Seminar. At the Paideia Seminar I think I did better than I did the last time we had our paideia seminar. The reason why I think I did better than the last time is because I spoke more & I communicated more. I asked people questions & other things like that.

What I think I could've done better was having to link on others ideas, challenge, piggyback & speak a bit more. During the paideia seminar I felt overwhelmed because I felt a bit shy to speak. During the term we had to create our own planets. Our group created a planet called Inferno Blaze. It was the greatest planet of them all. The people I was with were Amelia, Paikea, Justice & myself.

The Paideia Seminar was so incredible & I think everyone's favourite part was the end which was to eat their lollies. My favourite part was getting to the end & having to get a lot of fresh air. I really enjoyed the paideia seminar. What I could Improve on? What I think I could do to Improve my Paideia Seminar is to speak, communicating & as Mrs Lagitupu said that instead of asking people to share let myself share what I have got to say.

Overall it was an awesome day, can’t wait for the next Paideia Seminar!

Image result for auckland stardome observatory


Have you ever been to Stardome before? Well last week on Thursday all of team four students had went to stardome. Everyone had been putted into one of three groups. The people I was with were Trendy, Monika, Ayla, Ana, Leiite, Lepa & Tisa. Our king (Leader) was King Richard.  

It was a strange morning. I had walked into class as I thought it’ll be a normal morning. Well it wasn’t. We had all been placed into our Maths class instead of our Literacy class which felt really weird. Stardome was placed in Cornwall park by One Tree Hill.

Finally it was our turn to go to stardom, we had travelled to Stardome in a bus. Few more minutes later… Finally we had arrived at our destination which was Stardome. As soon as we hopped out of the bus we could obviously see the Observatory as well as other things such as. Sheeps, playgrounds, a mini train & a flying fox which was really cool.  

We had finally got into the building, I was so amazed at what I was seeing as I walked inside the doors. It was so different to what I saw last time I had went there. As soon as I walked inside I could see images of the solar system, planets, space & more. Moments later… After that everyone had gotten a piece of paper of space / planets & the solar system questions on it? I had already known that it was a quiz as he said all the answers would be inside the corridor so don’t start in here. Finally we had headed off to find the answers to what the question had said on the paper.      

At Stardome I had found out that Earth is called the Goldilocks planet because It is not to cold & it’s not to hot, It is just right. I had also learnt that God’s creations are so so beautiful so we need to take good care of it. Overall the day we had at Stardome was extremely awesome & Incredible. I hope you get the chance to go there one time, It is so awesome!

Task Description:

For this task we had to do this task which is called a Recount of what we did last week on Thursday, which was about Stardome. This was a task for everyone to do. If you haven't read this please check it out because one of my friends said it was amazing. It was an awesome experience!

Recount of Cross Country!

Walt: structure a recount. 


Have you ever participated in a School Cross Country before? Well last week on friday everyone at Pt England School had their own School Cross Country. It was soaking wet & really muddy. I was really excited but nervous at the same time. I was so determined to finish the race.

Getting ready for our turn to race most people were really nervous. Before the race I had started chatting to my friends, drunk a lot of water and had started cheering for the younger ones. It was an extremely hot day. Finally it was our turn to race as we could all hear Mr Jacobson call our year name.

ON YOUR MARKS, GET SET, GO!!! BANG!!! The clapper had went & everyone had zoomed past each other. I had started sprinting in the start & jogged in the end. As soon as I ran passed Mrs Stickland I had known that I had to slow down as I could see a lot of muddy puddles. My feet had got really muddy & part of my clothing as well. I had got a stitch & it was really sore. I was huffing & puffing because I was so exhausted as I was sprinting past most of the seniors as well as the year 6
girls. Finally getting to the finish line I had finished the race. WOO HOO!!!

After the race I was so relieved that the race was over as I felt so tired. As soon as I finished the race I had drunk a lot of water & sat on the hard, hot surface (Concrete). Slowly sitting down on the hard court I had started cheering for the final people who are still running & clapped as they are passing the finish line. A few minutes later everyone had started heading back to their classrooms with their teachers. Most people looked really tired, bored & extremely hot.   

Walking back to class I had thought about what I had learnt & what I could do to improve my running. What I had learnt about running was to never give up, believe in others & yourself & encourage others even if they don’t feel like it. How could I Improve my running? What I could do to Improve my running Is to keep running, do your best, have faith & never give up. Overall the It was an awesome day even though I didn’t want to do It. My friend & I was so proud of ourselves because we had started the race & we had completed it. The day was so incredible & everyone had left the courts with a huge smile on their face. Who is ready for next years Cross Country, are you? I know I am!  

Task Description:

For this task Room 7 learners had to do this task which was a recount of Fridays event. The event we had done was our School Cross Country everyone had participated in this event, Only if you had went to School. This was a task for everyone to do so If you haven't seen there's than check them out because they are pretty good writers. Enjoy & stay tuned for more upcoming posts!

Term 2 Rubric Reflection

Reading what I had got on my Rubric Reflection I felt really proud of what my score was but there was something else I really needed to work on which was to… Talk a lot more for our paideia Seminar & contributing meaning to, Piggyback, Agree or Disagree and argue with the people who I think I really needed to argue with. How will I be able to adjust myself to level 5? Well I think I would need to work harder meaning to, speak up more, communicate more & mainly contributing more of what our topic is mainly all about.

Reading what my score was about our Term 2 production I felt so proud but what I really needed to work on was to focus on the audience & to keep on smiling. How will I adjust myself to level 5? From here & on I really think my goal is to start contributing towards the production as well as to contribute to the creation of the performance. So what I really need to work on is basically all of this.

Walt: understand information collected from multiple sources.


Task Description:

For this task we had to write down words that would help us Room 7 learners remember the planets in our solar system.

I really hope that this will help you remember all the planets in our solar system M - N. Enjoy & stay tuned for more upcoming posts... 

Picture book story...

Walt: write for a younger audience. 

Image result for Space


Venice went around the world to find the planet that was right for her. Walking to the spaceship Venice wanted to explore the Galaxy up in space. Venice was so excited. It was time.



Counting down from 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, BLAST OFF! Reaching for the stars Venice looks all around space. She see’s Planets, Moons & a lot of Stars. Venice was totally surprised. Venice goes all around Space to find out more information about each Planet.



Mercury. Mercury is the first planet from the sun. Mercury speeds around the sun every 88 days. Mercury is the smallest planet in the solar system. This planet isn’t right for me that is why I am going to the next planet.



Venus. Venus is the second planet from the sun, Venus is Earth’s twin. Venus is so bright because it is covered with clouds & it reflects the incoming Sun. Venus is the same size as Earth, It is also a very hot planet. This planet isn’t right for me that is why I am going to the next planet.



I am back to where I blasted off I am just going to have a rest from the big adventure I had in space.………. 5 minutes later. I am now ready to explore the planets again. 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. BLAST OFF!!!



Mars. Mars is the 4th planet from the sun. The air on Mars is 100 times thinner than on Earth. Mars has got desserts & Ice It has also got 2 moons. Mars can be quite warm & it’s normal temperature is 63 degrees. This planet isn’t right for me that is why I am going to the next planet.



Jupiter. Jupiter is the 5th planet from the sun, Jupiter is the biggest planet in the solar system. It is five times as far from the sun as the Earth. Jupiter is a giant ball filled with gas, It also has no solid surface. This planet isn’t right for me that is why I am going to the next planet.



Uranus. Uranus is the 7th planet from the sun. Uranus is the only planet that spins & lays on it’s side. Uranus is known to have 27 Moons but none of them are very big. Uranus has a lighter blue than Neptune. Did you know that a day on Uranus is 17 hours & 14 minutes. This planet isn’t right for me that is why I am going to the next planet.



Neptune. Neptune is the 8th planet from the sun. Neptune has at least 5 very dark & narrow rings. Neptune was known to have 13 moons. Neptune has many active ice volcanoes that spurt plumes of gas and dust. Neptune has a thin atmosphere has frozen onto the surface. This planet isn’t right for me that is why I am going to the next planet.



“Don’t you think we should return to Earth”. Why? “ Well one reason is because I really miss seeing my family & friends as well as learning important things at School that us people should learn”. “I really miss having to play on the park & singing, “Says Venice!. Alright then it’s your choice we’re returning to Earth". Friends, Family & Teachers here we come! So we ate & played all day long, There was nothing more fun than doing this, It was the best time ever! We are so not leaving Earth ever again.



Task Description:



For this task we had to write a narrative story for younger kids in year 1. I had to write facts or information about each planet & the person I chose to do for my story was Venice. If there is kids that are year 1's than this is a story that is right for you. We will all be putted into 2 groups & will be going from there. I hope year 1's enjoy, & hope to see you blogging like this when you get older.

Paideia Seminar Term 2 Reflection...

Last week on Thursday the extension group had a Paideia Seminar. The topic was all about focusing on Technology, By the way this was only my first time doing a Paideia Seminar. Everything & Everyone was placed in the Tusitala Room. During the Paideia Seminar I felt very nervous, Shaky & Anxious about what I was going to say. There was a lot of emotion in me but I had gotten over it as soon as I spoke.

Before we had our Paideia Seminar we all had to get into groups of 2 My buddy was Makayla & she was great. Everyone had to pretend that we were Digital Creators & Designers, Cultural perspective, Children, Scientist, Medical people, News & TV Reporters, Schools & the Government. What myself & my friend Makayla chose to do was News & TV Reporters. At first we had both thought that we had to choose a (Fake) Job in the document, Which is why we had chosen to do News & TV reporters.

As soon as the Paideia Seminar had finished I had felt very proud of everyone as they did work hard on putting everything together & saying it in front of everyone, Thanks a lot guys. What I would do to work on speaking up a bit more is to write more like my parents say, Writing more you could be speaking or saying more, Which is kind of what I tried to do but I was to shy. Overall I am so proud of myself & of course everyone else for being  extremely awesome role models & amazing speakers everyone was amazing. I can’t wait for the next Paideia Seminar.

I had written down only 8 facts about space because it seemed really hard for me. I had enjoyed this especially working with my friends Naomi, Paikea & Bethan as well as Jorelle. Thanks for reading & enjoy, The Guardians of the Galaxy.

Narrative - Story.

Walt: structure a narrative piece of writing. 



What has happened to earth? Leaving earth me & my friend Jorelle has been flying in space for several days searching for the right place or planet to live on. It was 4017 and the earth is dying. Looking around in space myself & Jorelle starts searching for the right planet to lie on. All we could see was a lot of planets. What are we going to do?


We have now landed. Slowly walking around we had started to explore the planet. Walking around the planet myself & Jorelle spots a bunch of Aliens in the middle of nowhere. Slowly turning around all the Aliens start to chasing after us but we had nowhere to go, The spaceship was nowhere to be found.  


KA BOOM! “Jorelle what are we going to do? There are way too much Aliens crowding us & they are pretty big. “Hey there’s a spot we could hide. Bahhh Haaa Haaa you can run but you can’t hide. Running back to the spaceship I had just remembered that I had left Jorelle behind, We have nowhere to go but to run back to the spaceship. BOOM all the Aliens start to attack us.


“Do not come near me. “Hey you thought I was going to hurt you “said the Aliens. We just wanted to help you. “Hey whatever you're just a big humongous lier. “Hey whatever you need where her o help. What I need is for you to get off this planet “PLEASE. OK, Hey we did it. We have found our new home or our new planet to live on. This Planet is just right. let’s get going shall we. “Hey who did this to our Spaceship. “Excuse me Giant Aliens is it alright if you could fix our Spaceship. 2 hours & 25 minutes later, The Spaceship is now completed. Earth people here we come.

Finally settling in our new home everyone starts to gather up all their gear and create their new home, Luckily all the builders came. I couldn’t have done it without you Jorelle you are the best mate ever. This is the best & coolest planet I have ever been on, and it’s even better because the Giant Aliens are here to help. That’s pretty cool isn’t it. Now we can relax & watch a bit of Television. Who turned off the power?.   

Task Description:

For this task we had to complete this task as it was a really hard time. The writing was a Narrative story which is not a real story. The planets that are up the top is the Earth & my planet, Which is called Circulasen Planet. My buddy Jorelle who I had mentioned in the story named this planet. Thanks for reading & enjoy.

WLJ Last Day Bonus Activity!

Bonus Activity: On your blog, post a video or write a description about your week. What have you learned? What did you like about the trip? What didn’t you like? Was there anything that surprised you? To earn full points for this activity, you must talk about what you learned, what you liked and what you about your great kiwi road trip.
------------------------------------------------
During the holidays I have been learning so many things about New Zealand. It was an amazing journey with everyone especially Curious Kiwi & Rachel. The activity I enjoyed visiting was going to Rangitoto Island, KareKare beach & Tane Mahuta the god of the forest. It was an amazing adventure as well as going to Dargaville hotel. The activity I didn’t like was Day 4 which was swimming with the sharks, I had disliked this activity because I really hated seeing all the Whales like this and finding out what we are doing to kill our Native animals, I want to find out why us New Zealand fishermen s are killing our Native whales. What I liked & enjoyed about our great kiwi road trip was that we went to all sorts of places in New Zealand & I did actually find out heaps of information about New Zealand sports, Animals & many more cool things. The most coolest thing was that we all stuck together and we all found a way to help each other during the road trip, It was a great journey with Rachel, Curious Kiwi & many more cool people.

I would like to say thank you to Rachel for setting this all up for everyone who wanted to be apart of this awesome programme. It was a great and awesome journey with you guys & my team mates, Thanks to everyone who participated in this programme, Rachel would of been proud of you. Thank you Rachel you are the best by setting this all up for us kids to do during the holidays I really enjoyed it. I will be still blogging in the holidays & probably today I will be posting some more post’s. The WLJ programme was the best, I would love to do the SLJ / Summer Learning Journey with you again.

THANK YOU RACHEL!

WLJ Day 7 Activity 2!

Activity 2: After you have finished up in Taupo, it is time to hop back in the car and head for Rotorua – a town where will have the chance for some much needed rest and relaxation. In fact, you will visit the Tarawera Bush Pool – a geothermal hot pool that is located in the middle of a forest. The warm water in the pool comes from underneath the ground. After a few hours in the pool you feel really relaxed. On your blog, post a picture of yourself doing something relaxing. I find reading really relaxing. Here is a picture of me reading one of my favourite books!
After a long soak in the natural hot pools, it is time to get back home. Your family and friends can’t wait to see you and they can’t wait to hear all about your adventures. Take a moment to think about what you have seen and done over the past week.
H:\Blogging Study\WLJ 2017\Rach - Selfie (reading).jpg


I think that reading books & listening to music is something relaxing to do at home during the holidays. 

WLJ Day 7 Activity 1!

Activity 1: While in Taupo, you go for a walk around the lake and you notice pieces of rubbish floating in the water. You also notice that there is rubbish on the footpath. As you know, it is really important to put rubbish in the bin and keep New Zealand clean and beautiful for generations to come. With that in mind, it is time to think about what you can do to keep New Zealand beautiful. Use your imagination and come up with three things that you could do to make your neighbourhood more beautiful. Post your list on your blog ☺

  1. What I would do to keep my neighbourhood clean is to pick up every piece of rubbish & throw it in the bin.
  2. I think that using useable rubbish would be a great idea to make something really cool & stunning, Just by using rubbish which could actually help your neighbours by making your neighbourhood tidy.
  3. My last suggestion of keeping New Zealand beautiful is to reduce all rubbish.

WLJ Day 3 activity 1.

You have now woken up after a long, comfortable sleep at your hotel in Dargaville. You’re ready for another day of adventuring! Today, you will drive around the North island and be introduced to amazing animals that live here in New Zealand. Some are native and some are non-native. Native animals are animals that normally live in New Zealand. Non-native animals are animals that were brought into New Zealand from another country. Examples of native New Zealand animals are the kakapo, the kiwi, the kea parrot, the yellow eyed penguin and the pekapeka bat.

Activity 1: Curious Kiwi, a native New Zealand bird, is your tour guide for today. He is going to take you to visit the Otorohanga Kiwi House and Native Bird Park where many of his aunties and uncles currently live. The bird park is a five hour drive from Dargaville so you hit the road right after breakfast and arrive in Otorohanga at lunch time. As you walk through the birdhouse you learn about the work being done to conserve and protect the native birds of New Zealand. You decide to help out by ‘adopting’ a native animal. Visit the Adopt a Critter page’ on the Otorohanga bird house website to choose one animal to adopt. On your blog, tell us the name of the animal that you chose and a little bit about them. What kind of animal are they? What do they eat? Where do they normally live? You can use Google to help you with your research.

The Brown Kiwi:

Today I have chosen to adopt the Brown kiwi because it is known as an endemic native bird to New Zealand, Which obviously means that it is found in certain place around New Zealand. All Brown kiwi's are normally found in the North Island. Brown Kiwi's like to eat cicada's, moths and also centipedes, They could also eat Circkets, Weta's & way more disgusting & Horrible creatures. 

WLJ Day 6 activity 2!

Activity 2: After visiting Shag Point, you hop back in the van and drive all the way up the east coast of the south island until you reach the town of Picton. You get out of the van and onto the Interislander ferry. It travels back across the Cook Strait to Wellington. Wellington is the capital city of New Zealand and every winter the city hosts a huge Matariki festival to celebrate the Maori New Year. This year part of the festival is being held at Te Papa, a big museum in Wellington. Read about the Matariki festival at Te Papa.  There are so many different things to see and do at the festival this year. On your blog, tell us about three of the events. You can choose any three events that you wish.
1st: My favourite event of celebrating Matariki was the guy forks, I had chosen this event because it is more likely one of the best item to celebrating Matariki,besides the seven sisters and the harvesting of the kai to share with family and friends and beginings.
2nd: Next favourite thing I love about Matariki are the lights because we get to see all different kind of things like, all sorts of shapes, Patterns, Designs & especially when you go through the Walk trough.
3rd: last but not least my final favourite thing about Matariki is seeing all different kinds of Maori haka's such as Ka Mate & many more different haka's. 
To me Matariki is all about celebrating the new beginnings of the 7 sisters which are:
Waipuna-a-rangi, Wati, Waita, Tupu-a-nuku, Tupu-a-rangi, Uru-a-rangi & Matariki.
Matariki is also all about gathering around as one big happy family, Just like Christmas, Christmas is a time where you come together as a family and just have a good time. Well Matariki is the same of just celebrating
