Kiwisport & Softball reflection

Kia ora and welcome back to my blog!
Yesterday we got into our home groups  and one group did kiwisport and the other group did Softball. In kiwisport our sport that we are learning is tennis and I learnt about how to bat properly by using your forehand and backhand swings.

In Softball, I learnt how to catch the glove when being on one of the bases. This week we are having a Softball tournament and by playing Softball, it's helping me get better and better when I keep learning. One thing that I think I'm good at in Softball is being on base one where I can get people out quite easily if someone passes it to me properly.

Here are some pictures of what we did Yesterday!

Creative stories! Te Tuhi

Kia ora and welcome back to my blog!

WALT: Write a reflection about our experience at Te Tuhi.

1. 3 things that I have learnt:
One thing that I learnt at Te Tuhi is that people can be inspired just by the things around them just like Gary Peter and he made an artwork that was inspired by a ventilation! This is his artwork!

Another thing that I learnt was that Shannon Te Ao (an Artist) went to where he lived and he took lots of pictures, added different sounds and made a video about where he came from.

And last of all, I learnt that Shannon Te Ao made a video about his ancestors, one of his ancestors was sick and she ended up in a relationship with a man that she loved so much.

2. Explain two ways you can take what you have learned to give back to our TPS community?:
Coming back to TPS, I brought back a positive mindset and a can do attitude!

3. Name one thing that you would have liked to spend more time on?:
One thing that I would like to have spent more time on was our Role play because people didn't really know there lines so we kind of just made it up as we went through it. 

4. What was one thing Salome did that you liked?:
One thing Salome did that I liked was when she showed us Gary Peters artwork because it was very colourful and I liked that he got inspired just by this on little thing which was the Ventilation.

Here is a picture of my collage that I made!

Graphics Lesson 1



WALT: start our new learning rotation, learn what we are going to make and get to know each other.

Today was our first day of technology 2018. In this lesson, I got to find pictures that represent ME and I had to make a collage of the different pictures that I chose. I also got to make an avatar and if you want to make one too then just click here:

School Values - My Goals

Kia ora and welcome back to my blog!

Today in class, we had to write our School Value goals that we did. In this task, we had to write what we need to work on as a personal goal. Our school values are Manaakitanga, Whanaungatanga, Tukumarie, Rangimarie and Ako. We had to write 1 goal on each value that represents what we need to work on at our school. 

Here is a DLO( Digital learning object) that I have made:



Here is a google drawing so you can properly read it:

As you can see, one of my goals are to use my learning time wisely because sometimes I don't finish it then I would have to do it in my self management time which means that I have to finish even more work. 

I hope you enjoyed reading my goals for our school values.

Thanks for reading!

Day 1 bonus activity - WEEK 2 - In Flanders Field SLJ

Kia ora and welcome back to my blog!
For today's activity, I had to read a poem about Flanders Field so if you want to read it then here it is:

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
    That mark our place; and in the sky
    The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
    Loved and were loved, and now we lie,
        In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
    The torch; be yours to hold it high.
    If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
        In Flanders fields.

What do I think about this poem?
Well I think that this poem has powerful sentences and this person put a lot of depth into it. In this poem, I makes me feel like i'm living a life in Flanders field with all the beautiful poppies and the people that fought in the war to save our land. 

To me, my favourite is part is the first one: 
In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
    That mark our place; and in the sky
    The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
Because it has beautiful sentences like "still bravely singing" and "In Flanders field the poppies blow between the crosses, row on row". 

Thanks for reading and more blog posts will be coming so stay tuned!

Day 1 activity 2 - WEEK 2 - The right to vote SLJ

Kia ora and welcome back to my blog!

For today's activity, I have to blog about women that weren't aloud to vote in Saudi until 2015? Do you think it was fair or not?

Well I think that it's not fair that only men can vote because women have there rights too. It's actually not fair that women don't get to vote because they are the people that do everything for the men so I think that men should have a really good reason why women couldn't vote in Saudi. 

To be honest, is it the men that don't let women vote in Saudi or is it to president. I think it's the president now because well after all, he is the person that runs the country and does all the rules.

If I was the only girl that got to talk to the President of Saudi, then I would ask him why women should be aloud to vote! If men can vote, then women can vote. And many other countries, the women got to vote so I don't get why they couldn't vote in Saudi

Kia ora and welcome back to my blog!

Today I have to find a Cathedral on google search and answer these questions:

- The name of the Cathedral?

- Where the Cathedral is located?

- When was it build?

- How long did it take to build it?

Well keep reading to find more information!


This is the picture that i've found. I have chosen this Cathedral because it's in auckland where it's kind of chose to me, and it's a very beautiful place where people can pray, light candle's and enjoy the moments of peace.

 The name of it is St Patrick's Cathedral and it was build in the early 1840's. They finished the Cathedral in 2007 so it took them a really long time to build this as you can see.
