My First Tamaki College Post!

About 3 weeks ago, it was my first week of starting college and Tamaki College. On the first day, it was pretty scary seeing that I had to make new friends and I had to be in different classes with my old friends. But, I enjoyed the first week of school and I made A LOT of friends! One thing that I think I didn't enjoy on the first day would have to be doing A LOT of sport in the hot weather. But, other then that, I had the BEST first day!

End Of Year Reflection!

Kia ora and welcome back to my blog!

WALT: Reflect about 2018

Today will probably be my last time blogging at T.P.S because I will be leaving for college and we will also be very busy for the rest of the week. I will be talking about my highlights and low lights have been this year. 

3 words that would describe 2018 would have to be
enjoyable, AWESOME and TEAM! These are the words that I have chosen that describes 2018 because it have just been an awesome year spending time with my friends and pairs around me and also getting to go on different trips. One achievement that I am most proud of is becoming a student leader because it was a great opportunity for me to help improve throughout the year and also share my learning with others/pairs. 

This year, new things that I discovered about myself would have to that I was capable of learning new things in and out of the classroom and improving to make it better for the future. New skills that I have learnt this year would be encouraging others, working together with my pairs and friends in the classroom and also participating in events! 

5 main people that I enjoyed spending time with this year would have to be:
This is because I became really close with them and it felt like they were sisters to me!

Also, Kensington, Toma, Aumau, Perenara, Tevita, Demetrius, Fe'ao, Amon, Edith, Stephney, Grace and hevani are some people that I have enjoyed spending time with even though its more them 5 people!!

This year, 3 people that had the most positive impact in my life would have to be Ms. Komor, Ms. Aireen and Kelly because they have helped me throughout the year and have shared there learning with us and helped us to improve in Reading, Writing and Maths. Thank you so much!

This is my end of year reflection.

Last Week Of School!

Kia ora and welcome back to my blog!

IALT: Reflect about the last week of school

First of all, I am so sorry that I haven't been blogging in a long time because I have been very busy doing a lot of other things and haven't had time to blog my work. But, I am back and here with some blogging!

This week is the last week of term 4 and so we will be spending our last days together as a TEAM! This week is actually a very busy week. We will be having a shared lunch on Tuesday, graduation/prize giving on Wednesday, christmas in the park on Thursday, and packing up the class on Friday. So it is going to be very busy. 

One thing that I am enjoying at the moment is spending time with my friends and laughing A LOT. Also getting to share memories we had when we were young. I'm actually kind of scared of going to college next year because it is going to be very difficult and there is going to be A LOT of work. 

Well, hope you have an AMAZING day like I am!

Athletics Reflection 2018!

Kia ora and welcome back to my blog!

IALT: Write about Athletics day last week

When: Friday 16th November
Where: It was held at the TPS field
Who: TPS students, family etc
What: Athletics day where students from TPS participate in field events and compete against each other!
Why: Because this is something that we do every year.

Last week on Friday 16th November, we had Athletics where we participate in different field events such as running, shot put, discus, high jump etc. It was held at the TPS field. After morning tea, we got straight into the running events which were the 50m, 100m, 75m, and the 400m runs. There was also the TEAM relays where we had to run around the whole track and work as a team to finish at the finish line. The teams that were versing was TOBRUK - Red(My team), BENGHAZI - Green, TRIPOLI - Blue and ALAMEIN - Yellow! We also got sausages and ice blocks for free because one of the parents brought all of it for everyone which was so kind of them. 

This year for Athletics, I really enjoyed working together and having fun with my friends and my team even though we did lose but at least we had SO much fun! One thing that I found challenging was doing the 400m race because it was really hard breathing and one of my legs was injured but there was no one in my team that wanted to do it so I stood up and did for my team. Through this whole experience, one thing I learnt about myself was that I could actually do the 400m run with an injured leg even though it was painful. 

House points:
As you guys may or may not know, the winners of Athletics this year was... BENGHAZI - green which I am very proud of them since they have won 2 years in a row. Also to Alamein who came 2nd and Tripoli who came 3rd. And to my team Tobruk, who came last. But I know that Tobruk will get 1st place next year!

QUESTION: Have you done Athletics at your school? If so, what place have you come e.g 1st, 2nd, 3rd or 4th?

Manaiakalani Film Festival 2018:
Kia or and welcome back to my blog!

IALT: Reflect about the Manaiakalani Film Festival on Wednesday!

Image result for manaiakalani

On Wednesday 7th November, Tamaki Primary(my school) went to the Manaiakalani Film Festival! If you don't know what that is, it is where a cluster of schools come together and showcase there learning by making movies and sharing them with other schools. This term, I got to opportunity to be one of the presenters and share what our movie is about! Watch our movie we made about TEAM!

One thing that I really enjoyed was watching all the AMAZING movies that other schools have made and how some included different cultures which was really cool. One thing that I didn't enjoy was that when we were presenting, we had to wait for our turn and watch a lot of the same movies over and over again. 

Here is another site to go on and check out other schools movies! Also make sure comment on there movies too!


Also, we took some photos and videos while we were there...take a look:

QUESTION: What was one of the movies you enjoyed watching?

Maths - Decimals!

Kia ora and welcome back to my blog!

IALA: Adding decimals

This week we have been given a worksheet about decimals! So far, I have just started because I have been to Kapa Haka lately. One of the questions that I am up to now is double 34.6. I first went 34.6 + 34.6 and did it in the algorithm way. I started of with the numbers 6 so 6 + 6 equals 12. So I put 2 at then end, carried the 1, so now it is 4 + 4 + 1 equals 9. I then went 30 + 30 = 6. My answer altogether was 69.2!

One thing that I really enjoyed was that some of the question were quite challenge which I love challenges. One thing that I didn't enjoy was that I had to look for the number then colour it in which took a really long time! One thing that I need to work on is making sure that it is the right answer before I colour in the box.

QUESTION: What is one thing you enjoy about Maths?

Nature Watcher - Predator free!

Nature Watcher - Predator Free:
Kia ora and welcome back to my blog!

IALA: Agree, disagree or slightly disagree/agree about predator free

Today with Ms. Treena, we learnt about predator free. Nature Watcher was someone that said that all animals that are called pests by the predator free should be treated with more respect. Do you agree, disagree or slightly agree/disagree? Well I actually why:

I'm sorry to say nature watcher but I strongly disagree with you because as other people from other countries bring animals to our country, they can affect our plants, people, animals, etc. Pests are animals that kill our native birds/animals which carry diseases. They can also be a danger and a threat to our country. 
Pests that the department of conservation(DOC) listed:
Wild rabbits
Feral cat 
Kaimarama horses
(DOC) also listed wildlife that need protection from pests:
Powelliphanta snail
Knobbled weevil
Green gecko

Yes I do disagree and many people might agree or disagree but I just think that more people and animals will be affected by pests if people don't do anything about it. 

Question: Why do you think? 
Give your opinion!
