The Labyrinth

Yesterday and today we watched a movie called Labyrinth. We filled in these documents Ms. Kirkpatrick sent us. You can see our activities we worked on as a group of four here above. In my group was Charlize, Te Wai, and Latham. You can also see our DLO we made on 1 thing a narrative structure had to have, a character intro, and our comment on what part of the movie to our eyes was the best.

On Wednesday we had maths. We did less than, greater that, and equal. Read my DLO to find out more about what we did. In this activity I worked with Sa kae and Lyndon.

Flying Rockets

 Today after tech we stayed at tamaki college again to finish off our rockets. We were very busy this morning because we had to glue our pieces together,  add some string and a strip of paper to the nose and body, insert the burn less paper in the body, then finally put the engine inside of the body. After we finished the rockets it was flying time. We went to the field and flew the rockets one by one. When I went to fly my rocket I was a little scared because I thought it would fly straight to me but I did it anyway. To make the rocket go I had to hold two wires that were attached to the rocket to a battery and the rocket just flew away. The person that came first was sajiha and second was Cj. It was a really hard day today but it was still fun and it's also unfortunate that not everyone got to fly there rockets. I would like to say a big thanks to Mr Dunn and Mrs Ferguson for making time for us to do rockets it was really fun

Straw Rockets

 I have made a DLO on how to make a straw rocket. You may have seen my other post about rockets on my blog showing on what we did at tamaki college on Friday. On Friday we also made a straw rocket that we had to test out. This DLO is step by step on how to make a straw rocket. At the end of the presentation I have also put a video on how to make a straw rocket. The video was made by Mr. Dunn at Tamaki college. If you haven't already seen my other DLO here is the link:


On Friday the year 7's and 8's stayed at tamaki college after tech to make rockets with Mr Dunn. Mr Dunn showed us a video of some rockets taking off. Then he showed us a video on how to make a straw rocket. This DLO shows our aim, our hypothesis, our method, our results, our conclusion, our evaluation, and the meaning of the symbols in the top right hand corner. In this presentation I worked with Afu, Breeana, Sakae, Ma'ata, and Chalize. If you want to know how to make a straw rocket go to my other blog post called Straw Rockets.

Yr 7 Leaders Nomination

This morning we nominated the leaders for next year. We also thought about what does a leader have to do. Student leaders have to behave, be confident, motivate and interest others. They need to be respectful, lead by example, and look smart in uniform. Speak clearly and confidently with expression and be a good role model. Follow care values and get involved, include other and set a good example. Also be trustworthy.
