Earthquake House

WALT: Learning from each other, Learning with each other

AWESOME!!
On Wednesday it was tuakana teina day, tuakana teina means younger to older. Which means that a senior class has to buddy up with a junior class.

Firstly, Ms Fepuleai did the roll then she explained to us how our behaviour should look and sound like. She told us ways of how we were going to help our buddies from Room 3 keep up with our earthquake proof houses.

Secondly, we then had to walk down to Room 3 so we can start working on creating our earthquake proof houses. When we arrived in Room 3 we looked at a slide based on earthquakes, Ms Fepuleai wrote some of the rules we were going to be looking at while we were answering some of Miss Gormly's questions. We watched a video filled with different types of ideas of how we can make our basic house earthquake proof.

Thirdly,  we all went outside so Ms Fepuleai and Miss Gormly can put us into our groups. In my group was Savannah, Cheska, Tasi and myself. Our idea to make our basic house earthquake proof was to use four long rubber bands and nine red furry  bendy sticks ( Pipe Sticks ). After we finished making our basic house earthquake proof we had to go and tie it onto the playground then Miss Gormly tested it. 

In Conclusion, “ we had a FANTASTIC FANTASTIC FANTASTIC FANTASTIC FANTASTIC FANTASTIC FANTASTIC Time ”.

Tuakana Teina with Room 3





On Wednesday the 20th of September
Room 8 went to our buddy class Room 3.


Firstly, Room 8 were talking with Mrs
Fepulea'i about the expected
behaviours around young children.
After Mrs Fepulea’i and Room 8 were
talking about the expected behaviours she
told Room 8 that we had to
line up behind me or Manaia so we
can go to Room 3.


Secondly, when Room 8 got to Room 3
we had to sit on the mat and look at
a google slide show that Miss Gormlie
created about earthquakes. A few seconds
later  Room 5,8 and 3 had to go outside so
Mrs Fepulea’i can sort out the groups, after
Mrs Fepulea’i sorted out the
groups she said that we had to go to a lady
to get a paper and pen for our plan.


Thirdly, after we planned our unbreakable
earthquake house we had to record us saying
what items we are going to use and where we
are going to put the items. A few minutes
later Miss Gormlie and Mrs Fepulea’i gave
the groups a milk box each to create
our earthquake proof house.


Finally, When we finished creating our
earthquake proof house we had to tell Miss
Gormlie that we were finished so she can
see if our houses were earthquake proof.  
When Miss Gormly finished shaking our
house on a cardboard she told us to pack up
the class. I enjoyed this activity because I
wanted to spend time with my buddys in
Room 3.


In conclusion, creating an earthquake
proof house was very much fun!

Three Commandments

      Boxing Pax feedback.

Walt learn how to box using the 3 commandments.
When I first went to boxing I thought we were going to punch some bags but I realised it was more of a discipline kinda way. So I thought to myself this might be fun. So I wanted to go and I was right it was fun in a way. First my gloves were sweaty and I wanted to quit but I did not give up and I learnt self discipline.
The three commandments
Respect
I will have respect to my coach, my peers and the sport of boxing
Discipline I will have discipline to turn up to every boxing session and give my 100%
Safety I will not cause harm to others and only practice boxing in a safe environment under the guidance of a coach.


I would love to do this again!

Don't eat the snow!









Magic Snow


What a surprise, we made magic snow! On Wednesday morning,
the students in Room 8 did a science experiment.


Firstly, Ms Bracey explained the history of magic snow.
The product of the magic snow is called polymer.
Polymer is mostly used by scientist.
WARNING, This product is not suitable for younger children,
under the age of 5.


Secondly,  after Ms Bracy explained, we followed her
instructions and got on with the experiment.
The materials we used was a packet of polymer,  
plastic cup that was transparent and ½ cup of cold water.


At last, we poured the packet of polymer into
the transparent plastic cup, then we poured the water into the same cup.
The polymer absorbed all the water, and made magical snow.
It grew so fast, that everyone squealed. It felt squishy and slimy.

Listening to chatterboxes

    


WALT:Using your listening skills.


How to make a Chatterbox.

I done this chatterbox with all Room 8 and a junior in the class. We were doing a chatterbox that looked like mountains all together. It was happening last Wednesday when the bell rang.
I was in the class with Room 8 students and with the teacher. We were doing this so we can get ideas from it for when we write our recount and I was excited about it.

Firstly, We were given a magazine, tore out a page and folded each corner into the center. When we folded the magazine there was lots of folding to do and there was lots of triangle´s to fold. We seem to be folding forever until we make a chatterbox.

Finally, We got to play with the chatterbox. When I made the chatterbox I straight away thought it looked like 4 mountains, volcanoes, stuck all together. When we finished it Ms Bracey said we can play with it until the end of the day or until we do more learning to do about fractions, maths, reading, inquiry, cybersmart.

Are you going toilet?


Room 8 students watched a video on how not to behave when you go to the school toilets. They turned it around into the positives of how students should behave as part of PB4L.

We brainstormed as a class and then Auckland took the class IPAD and students out to film.

Me, Myself and I

Auckland @ Tamaki Primary School · Post Me , myself & I Posting as Auckland
WALT: write a positive comment using google share.

In New Zealand there was a boy that loved to explore. He is 11 yrs old.
The boy wants to be an explorer but he is still in primary school.
One day the boy was sick of being told that he’s too young and weak to be a explorer.
Then he went to Rangitoto because Rangitoto is a volcano.
The boy read a nonfiction story that there was crystals and gems in a volcano.
Suddenly Rangitoto erupted.

Auckland, I liked how you used future tense.
Milan

Auckland, I liked the way you spelt everything correctly.
