Maths art

L.I To make a reflective,rotated art work.
This week for art our maths group had to start painting,dyeing and pastel our patterns. The part I found hardest out of those to do was pastel. Why I choose pastel? Well the pastel wouldn't always stay in the line. But after all of that hard work I was able to glue and finish it ! Art this and last week was really fun and we had sometime to do something fun and do maths while we were at it.


L.I To make a summary on the suffrage for woman.
This week our group listed 20 words on this summary sheet. After that we had to come back and think of what the top 6 words were. The top 6 was debate,suffrage,change,government,gender and vote. After writing in the top six words we had to write three sentences using these words.


Maori Language week.

 This week me Fui and Chavda made a slide on Maori Language week. This was a bit hard for us cause we had to learn this of by heart.

Coggle / brainstorm

L.I to create a persuasive speech.
This week I made a coggle on a brainstorm on what my facts and ideas are going to be for my speech. Writing this week we had to start on making our facts and ideas so next week we can start to write our speeches out. Our speeches also must have true facts to back up your idea or what your opinion is as then people will start to change like you have said.

Haiku poem

L.I to make a poem on one of the sits
This week for inquiry I made a poem on a haiku site. If you would like to make a poem for yourself or for practice then here is the Link. So this week our inquiry group is practicing on making our poems on different sites. We also the the option to do a Diamante. I made my poem based on being nervous like when it is your first time reading a speech out loud to your class,family,school or even the com unite. Also if you need  to get an Idea look at my poem or at the rules on the site.

L.I to make a art pattern
This week I worked with a group of random people to make the planning better. After planning we had to fine a pattern and trace it or put it on a google draw. I just had finished planning and know I move on too tracing on a piece of paper.

Poetry patterns and Language features.

LI: To identify vocabulary and language feature for use in writing a poem about feelings. This week for inquiry I made a poster on finding patterns and language features in a poem. The poem I chose was LOVE. I thought this poem was challenging and turned out it was for a little poem. I had to add as much patterns and features in this poem and then make it pretty. 

Kiwi can

L.I to use our self control.
This week for Kiwi can we played bip bop bounce. This game taught us to take control and say the right word at the right time. Our activity was getting in a group and talk about what risks are. I learnt a lot from Kiwi can. If you do not know what risks are well they are doing something you know that is going to 99% going to fail on or get hurt. Risks in class are also like putting your hand up and giving it a try.
Another risk is if you don't listen and the teacher asks you what the answer was but you wouldn't know because you weren't listening. This leads to embarrassment.


This week I commented on Meles keyboarding drills. Her post was amazing and I recommend for you too check her out!

Tongan language week.

 L.I To make a Tongan language week slide. This week me and Jonathan made a google slide on Tongan language week. We had to include Tongan languages like for example bee in  Tongan is Pi. This activity was really easy because of our teacher Miana.

Spare the turkey

This week I read Spare the turkey. This book was about a boy wanting to have burgers but instead gets salad. When he arrives people were talking about amazing things about the salad and he wondered is they were just being nice or really meaning it. When it was time to eat he tasted the salad and thought it was really nice. This was also for thanks giving so I think they ate salad and spared Turkeys around the world.

Daily six

This week I have completed the whole 1st key boarding drills task. This task I have been working on has been a blast and I am ready to move on too key boarding drills 2. Here is a screen shot of all the tasks for task 1.

Persuasive speeches

Persuasive speech plan

My topic: Don’t smoke
My argument: Smoking shouldn’t be allowed
Audience: Writing group/teacher

How will you greet your audience? Good morning or afternoon.
How will you introduce your topic in a catchy way? I was thinking if people could stop smoking for very good reasons.
Write a rhetorical question to make the audience think about your topic: Do you think smoking is bad because it really is too me.
What is your opinion? Write a statement that clearly states your point of view: Well I wonder why most adults like smoking because it’s really bad. Smoking causes lots of problems and a lot of people die because of smoking. Smoking causes cancer and could even lead to a heart attack really quick. I also think if adults smoke children could follow along in their footsteps and that would be terrible.
List some facts or statistics that support your opinion:
  1. Smoking can cause death if you smoke too much.
  2. It can be unhealthy for your gums.
  3. Smoking is also very bad for your lungs so I recommend not to smoke.
Do you have a solution to the problem?
I think we can stop smoking by banning all sorts of smokes around New Zealand and everywhere too.
Say your opinion again and warn the audience what will happen if they don’t agree with your opinion.
Smoking causes lung diseases and cancer. Those things are really bad and they both can lead to death. So I really recommend not to smoke!
Persuasive speech plan

My topic: Not bringing valuable things
My argument: Students not bringing valuable things to school
Audience: Writing group/teacher

How will you greet your audience? Good morning / afternoon LS1.
How will you introduce your topic in a catchy way?
I have been thinking that students should shouldn’t bring things that is not apart of school supplies or lunch.
Write a rhetorical question to make the audience think about your topic: Have you bought something to school and lost it?
What is your opinion? Write a statement that clearly states your point of view: Well bringing things that you own at home like toys and jewelry can be on a high risk to being stolen. Most students around the world bring popular and expensive toys to show off.
List some facts or statistics that support your opinion:
  1. High risk of being stolen
  2. Starting to show off
  3. Getting attention
Do you have a solution to the problem?
If teachers and others find students have things at school they have to put it in the bin
Say your opinion again and warn the audience what will happen if they don’t agree with your opinion.
Their will be high risks!
Persuasive speech plan

My topic: Accessories
My argument: Having accessories at school
Audience: Writing group / Teacher

How will you greet your audience? Hi there! My names Nyjah.
How will you introduce your topic in a catchy way? I was thinking if schools could allow kids to have accessories at school.
Write a rhetorical question to make the audience think about your topic: Would you agree? Cause I would
What is your opinion? Write a statement that clearly states your point of view: Well having accessories at school is great because it expresses what type and colour of accessories that you wear. Another thing is people can sort of tell who you are by what accessories you are wearing. For example a new kid comes to your school and knows what type of person you are by looking at your accessories or accessory. Like if you’re wearing a skull necklace it could represent that you’re into rock music and like cool things. If you’re wearing a flower or star necklace then you like things bright. But be carefull cause someone could steal your things.
List some facts or statistics that support your opinion:
  1. Accessories can show off what you like.
  2. People can be aware of what you are like by looking at your accessories
  3. Accessories can bring attention
Do you have a solution to the problem?
Schools should allow students to bring accessories on a specific day so not much accessories get stolen.
Say your opinion again and warn the audience what will happen if they don’t agree with your opinion.
L.I to write a persuasive speech.
This week for writing our group made a padlet and listed some topics and what our three speeches will be. Mr O will determine what topic we will be doing at our level. The listed topics I choose was No smoking,Bringing Accessories and bringing valuable things or things you own like toys too school. These were the topics I thought were best for me to choose so I did. We have till the end of the term to finish off our speeches before we say them.

Daily six

This week for keyboarding drills I am almost at level two as I have not been focusing that much on this task sadly. Although I still love this daily six task. It gives me a lot of practice too!

Technology at school.

L.I Is to have the structure of a argument.
The link to our groups video Andy Griffith videos

This week I recorded myself recording my speech for having Technology at school. So at the start our whole group split in half and writing about if we disagree or agree. Me,Victoria and Sakina agreed as Jack,Alex and Julian disagreed. This was a really fun activity but the recording took a while as there was a lot of sounds in the background. The last time I recorded you could hear me clear so I used it. This was one of my favourite learning in writing so far! Also this was hypothetical work so its not a real.

Tables Master

This week I played Tables Master. The main thing to do in this game is to get your answers right and the game will time your score. This helps you get better at your timetables and saying them faster. If you want to play this game here is the link Tables Master. As this game was really fun and me and Chavda had some vs too. We came to a tie and called it one.

Run,jump throw

This week for Kiwi sport we did high jump. Our warm up game was octopus. Octopus was a very fun game but then we practiced high jump. After practice we really jumped over the stick. I tried going even higher each time. The last time I jumped I tried jumping as high as I can and almost failed. Andy was a great teacher and helped me jump over the stick. I hope we do kiwi sport again and get better and better at jumping,throwing and running.

Kiwi can

This week for Kiwi can we played two games at Kiwi can one was the same as last week and the other one I sadly forgot. We were earning about self control.


L.I is to have a structure of a argument.
This week for our must do is to make a possum poster on wither you agree with possums in New Zealand and Australia or not. The point on making the poster is to make people agree with your opinion and try make them think the same way you do. The reason why I disagree is because most possums eat small and sometimes big animals and eat animals food. This is a big problem but maybe you don't agree which is fine.

3D Shape / How to video

Displaying thumbnail of video Recorded with Clipchamp (4).webm
L.I is to make a video showing how to make a 3D shape.
 This week me Fui and Chavda made a video on how to make a 3D Shape. I did the first sense while they did the other scenes and chavda did one too. We all took turns to be in the video and then finished and uploaded one thing we missed is to also make a plan too. Link to the video Our video

This week I commented on fui's blog and she had a pretty great post too! Please check her out as she has amazing work!

Kiwi sports

This week for kiwi sport Andy came in and we did jumping skills. One of the skills is to do shoulders width apart and bent knees. It was really fun and we learnt heaps from Andy. Andy is a very skilled teacher as she has been teaching us the last past 3 years that I remember of. The last game we did was rock paper jump. This game contains two teams and dots. We have to jump on the dots or outside of the dots and when we meet we got to play rock paper scissors.

Kiwi can

This week for Kiwi can our whole class worked together as Ms Latua was not here. We played 2 games. Hands defense and floor ball. The first game we had to play was to defending our legs in case someone rolled the ball in between them. The next game we played was Mr Malu had to call out a group and they had to doge the ball the people on the mat were rolling towards one of us and get us out. It was a pretty fun day and we also thank Mr Malu for teaching us by him self this week.

Daily six

This week for daily six I am doing the Keyboarding drills again as I have not done this heaps of times before. They are a bit hard but soon will get used to doing this.

Fact or opinion

This week our L.I is to know the Fact or opinion.
The clip I choose was the island and it was a pretty hard one really. We had to work independent as that would lead to getting better by your self and improving your speed to getting work done faster and getting a lot better at your fact or opinion.

Pov chart.

I think students should go on more school trips. They are fun and we could learn more about other places and new things so win win right? People enjoy going. Their are so much sites to see and much to learn. Why most people really enjoy going is because, it’s a fun way to get out of their class. I think everyone else would enjoy going on more trips too. Many schools go on school trips but some don’t, that means they are missing out on more learning about other things and missing out on the fun.

Common Trips most people would enjoy would be to a fun park and a animal sightseeing like the zoo. Most schools would go to these common places so the more others go and think that was a great place to see then other schools would follow along. Its also a nice way to treat students that are good. It's not really fair just letting them wait for others to finish on what they are doing. Another thing is you're raising money for the school to get more supplies and other things they need. A little fun could not hurt so why not go on school trips!

This week for writing our L.I is what is a point of view.
This week me and my group wrote two paragraphs on the topic we like and make a POV chart. After we finish doing that we had to share it to our group members. We had to change it into our own POV but still the same story. My one was about school trips and why we should have more of them. We either had to disagree or agree or even both!

3D Shapes / Planning

 L.I to create our own 3D shape doing a different volume and capacity. This week we started on planning to make our 3D shape for the term. My 3D shape I am going to be creating is a cube. I thought about doing the cube because it is a lot easier for beginners but I think its just my type really. Next week we are going to drawing on card and might be able to start on our 3D creations. 

Raz Kids

This book is about 4 kids running into a spooky cave on Halloween night. These kids then face the terror of the Halloween spirits. Wanna find out more? Well check out this book on Raz kids to see the rest.


This week for inquiry the L.I is to figure out which boxes go in which. We had to either work with a buddy or by your self. This was just a test so working by your self would have been better but me and Chavda decided to work with each other. After completing this we had a test and see if we got each text in the correct box. Also it would nice if you would be able to check out Chavda's blog too.

Daily six

This week for my daily six I did my keyboarding drills. I have not done this one at all so I decided to try it out. It is not as bad but I do need more practice to get better. This is a very great exercise and I think everyone else should try practice too.

our product

LI: To make a poster about safety.
I learned how to do even more things about learning how to make an ad.
We had to work into peers or groups because some people wanted to work on posters and the other people wanted to work on an ad. I worked with Chavda and Fui our name was called PCH Pizza which stands for Pepperoni, Cheese and Hawaiian. We had to make the video 15 or 20 seconds long but my group made a 36 seconds.

Our Advertisement.

The L.I for this week is to create a advertisement.
This week our writing group Andy Griffiths made a advert on our product the Stationary value pack. After a long time of planning we went to record in the other room of LS1. The pack includes 2 rubbers,Coloring pencils,pens and more.


 Our L.I this week is to Unfold a 3D shape into a net. week we unfolded 3D shapes. We have to choose one shape to create our own 3D box. Next week we will be starting on the box or shape. The 3D shapes I choose was a pyramid, Triangular prism and a 3D Cube.

Fact or opinoin

This week our L.I is to separate fact from opinion
This week me and Fui did Fact or opinion based on the mouse from Disney. We found facts and opinions from the video and put the facts in one box and the other in the opinion box.

 This week our L.I is to stay safe online. This week we made a poster on Online safety with Chavda and Fui. These posters tell us and you about Online safety and what you should do when Online. We added some information and pictures just to give you a little hint the next time your online.

LI: To learn how to scale. I learnt how to scale  shapes. This week I was working with a partner for maths. We had to make a google slide on scaling shapes. We had to do three slides on three shapes. We both did a slide each and worked each other's work out. Our teacher Mr Wong told us how to do the scale on a shape.

Kiwi can

Today for Kiwi can we played two games. Selfie stick and orders of emotions. For our first game we had to get into four groups and sit in a circle with a yellow stick in the middle. When a group is called out  they have to run in get the stick, hold it  up and make the emotion. The next game we played was emotion orders. We had  to put the emotions worst to bad in order.
