Times tables warm-ups

Today we used the game 
"Hit the button" to help us recall our 4x answers quickly. I found it hard to find the question so I will be practicing this in my own time.

Week 4 Tech

Today in tech we started our second rotation of the year 2017. Last week we were in cooking but now we are in graphics with Mrs Ferguson. In graphics we are making clocks. But first we had to make a collage about ourselves and what we like. I like lots of things so I found it hard to choose what I should put on my DLO. After we had finished making our collages about our self we had to create a DLO and find images of clocks. We were only allowed to put transparent photo's on the DLO. To get the photo onto the DLO we had to drag the photo onto the drawing. Once we had finished the DLO of the clocks it was time to leave so we all packed up and we went back to the bus to go school.

Week 4 Dance

 Today in dance we worked with Miss Brett, we were having fun because we were practicing our own warm ups then Mataio and Fraidon led us through their warm up. Then on the tv screen there was a video clip with two people making shapes which they combined together to make dance moves. In this dance lesson I worked with Sakae. Sakae and I were making shapes like in the video. We were a bit stuck because we didn't know how to make a circle. But we still enjoyed it. If you would like to see the video that we watched here is the link: I hope that you enjoy watching this video just like we did.

Week 3 Dance

Today in dance we had to get into our groups from last week and practice the exercises that we created last week. After we had finished doing our warm ups we all had to do Ofa's and Josh's warm up . When we finished Ofa and Josh's warm up we had to get back into our groups and try to make a triangle, square, and a circle shape with any body part. It was really hard to make the shapes because we all had different ideas but we combined our ideas to make one dance that we all liked. Today in dance we learned the difference and the meaning between a free flow dance and a bound flow dance. The people in my group were Sakae and Zahra. This week Mrs Anderson was our dance teacher.

World Of Maths

Yesterday at school after lunch we went to the hall and Mrs A put us into groups with LS1. When we were all in our groups Mrs A, Mr Ogilvie, and Charles sent all the groups to different tables. Charles is the man who works for world of maths. The First table that my group went to was Off the Islands. The people in my group were Sakae, Sila, Giovanni, and Zane. My favorite activity out of all the maths rotations was the first activity that we did called Off the islands. I liked this activity because it was really hard at first but once you really think about it you will finally get it. While we were working out the problems we had to also think about key composites. We also had to work together as a team and collaborate with each other.

Yesterday in LS2 we started our kiwi sport. Our kiwi sport for this term is Taekwondo. Our instructors name is Steven. We learnt to punch and kick  really fast. We had to react fast to do what Steven said. It was really fun and at the end of the lesson we were all sweating. I hope the next eight weeks of Taekwondo will be really awesome.

Dance in LS2

In the morning and middle block we did dance.  In dance Mrs Anderson said we had to create our own warm up routine. My partners were Sa kae and Zahra we watched warm up videos to get some inspiration. Making up the moves was easy but doing them was really hard. Warming up and stretching before you have a sports event it can help you move a lot easier, but if you warm up and stretch to much you will lose some of your strength to do something. This was a very fun task to complete and I cant wait till next week.

NZ Rubbish

For inquiry this term we are learning about how we can look after our planet earth by using reduce, reuse and recycle. We found out that a report says New Zealander's are really bad at recycling. Also every year New Zealander's throw away 3.6 million tonnes of rubbish each year. We looked at two articles about what we should do to solve our waste problem. Then we made our own opinion. I agreed with article two.
