Driving Range!

Kia ora and welcome back to my blog!


IALT: Reflect about me going to the driving range


On Saturday, I went to the driving range which is where you get a bucket of golf balls and you get to hit them. I went with my mum, dad and my big sister and we went around 11:00pm and we came back home at 2:30am in the morning. One thing that I really enjoyed was that I got a whole bucket to myself. One thing that I didn't enjoy was that I was getting blisters on my hands because I was holding the golf club to hard and when I hit it, it was make my hands have blisters so I tried holding it a bit softer. And I also enjoyed spending time with my mum, dad and my sister!


QUESTION: Have you been to a driving range?

On Sunday, What Now came to our school! There were a lot of games that happened and I got to be on t.v. I also got to meet Roonie, Erin and Chris after What Now and I got to take photos and also get there autograph. It started at 8:00am and I was thinking whether I should go or not but I decided to go(at 8:30)! When I got there, there was a lot of people but I was lucky enough to get a seat because not that many people got a sit. One thing that I enjoyed was that Roonie, Erin and Chris always came to our side because we were split into teams and they always came to the yellow team which was my team!

At the end of the day, It was great to see that everyone had a smile on there faces and the next day they were ALL talking about it!

Museum Trip!

Museum Trip:
Kia ora and welcome back to my blog!

IALT: Reflect about our museum trip


Today we went to the Museum! When we first got there, we were split into groups and I was in group 1. What we did was we went to a room upstairs and we did a Karakia. We also met a few people and they introduced them to us. After that we went of into our groups and one group stayed back in the room while the other group went to the volcano gallery then we switched. My group went first to the volcano gallery and it was really cool because we went into the volcanic room and they changed the video because before it was different. One thing that I really enjoyed in the volcano gallery was that I learnt more about volcanoes. One thing that I didn't enjoy was that we had to go because the other group had to come. But the cool thing was that we got phones to take photos (of work, not ourselves)!


When then came together for morning tea. After morning tea we split into our groups again but this time the other group went to the volcano gallery and my group went back to the room. In the room, we got to do all sorts of things such as virtual reality, green screen, tinkercad, robots, and a lot more. I really enjoyed virtual reality because we got to draw and I was drawing a lot of things which was really cool! One thing that I didn't enjoy was when I went to stop motion, the tablet wasn't working so I couldn't make one. One thing that I really was how to code because we had to use coding for robots and it was really fun.


After that, we had lunch that was provided for us. Then we went back to the room and we had to do a task which was to choose a natural disaster. Then we had to choose how we are going to present it using the robots, 3D printing, stop motion etc. We also had to stay in our partners and I was with Monita. We decided that our natural disaster is Volcanic eruptions and we will be using robots to present our work!

QUESTION: Have you been to the museum?

Technology!

Technology:
Kia ora and welcome back to my blog!

IALT: Reflect about technology today


Today we had technology and it was really fun because when I got there, we got our things that we needed and we went off to finish our pendant. One thing that I enjoyed was a sand papering because that was probably that only thing that I had to do which was sand papering A LOT. One thing that I didn't enjoy was that I have to do A LOT more of sand papering and we only have 2 sessions of technology to finish our pendant which is very stressful. 

This is a pendant:

After 2 sessions have finished, we will be switching groups and I will be in Cooking with Ms. Tuipulotu. One thing that I am looking forward to is cooking something new because maybe some of the things we cook is something that I have never cooked before! 

QUESTION: Do you have Technology? If yes, what do you like about it?

CRAZY DAY!

CRAZY DAY:

Kia ora and welcome back to my blog!


WALT: Give back to Kids Can


TODAY WAS CRAZY DAY! Where Tamaki Primary School got to wear mufti and went a little crazy with what they wore. We also had to bring a gold coin donation so that we can give a little back to Kids Can. Kids Can has supplied us with tissues, shoes, raincoats, food etc so our school wanted to give a little back to them because they have done a lot for us. One thing that I really enjoyed was that I got to get a little crazy with what I wore and I looked so funny! 

QUESTION: What is something CRAZY that you would wear?

IALT: Reflect about Technology

Image result for technology

Yesterday was the first day that we had technology for this term. I was so EXCITED because our class has not been to technology in a while and I was so happy that we were going. As you may or may not know, I am in Mr. Grundy's class and so far I have go upto sand papering. Next week I can't wait because I am nearly done with my project! 


One thing that I really enjoyed at technology yesterday was seeing what other people have been doing. I saw one project from someone and they are doing a bird which looked so cool. One thing that I didn't enjoy was that there were A LOT of people on the board because they needed help so I had to wait a very long time. One thing that I learnt was that when you file your pendant, you make sure that you get every edge and that it is shiny. 

QUESTION: Have you ever done pewter casting?

Whanau Conferences!

Whanau Conferences:
Kia ora and welcome back to my blog!

IALT: Reflect about Whanau Conferences today

Image result for Whanau conference

Today we had whanau conferences which is where our teachers get to meet our parents and discuss our learning and our behavior. We did have school but we finished early at 12:00pm so the student leaders went to set up the classroom for our whanau to come. Then at 11:00am we had morning tea as usual and at then after morning tea we finished off some work. We then went home at 12:00pm. 


The time that I was given for whanau conferences was 2:50pm and we talked about my learning and I also showed my nan my blog. One thing that I need to work more on is my maths because as you all may know maths isn't my best subject but I still try really hard to work on it more. One thing that I really enjoyed at whanau conferences was discussing my learning and seeing what I need to improve on for this term. 

QUESTION: Do you have whanau conferences and do you call it something else?
