Survey test

This week Mr Wongs maths groups went around asking people what there favourite whole number from 1 - 20. This process took some time because we asked the WHOLE of ls1. This was a really fun yet a little difficult task as it took all of us some time or most of our space to go talk to others about what number they like the most from 1 - 20. Next we had to make a DLO and make a graph to express the work.

Fire station



This week LS1 went down to the fire station to learn about the water hoses,training area, fire trucks and tools. This was a special event as last week the police visited us. We learnt about the tools they have and there special suits that protect them from heat. Fire fighters have special tanks that they breathe in to protect there lungs. Fire fighters have lots of gear to get in houses,remove doors,get into houses and to let out fires. LS1 learnt heaps from this trip and I was surprised to find out there are only 4 workers and they work day and night. They also help with medical things and car crashes. They also help cut trees and get people free. New workers also train heaps to get better at there job and also workers who have been at the fire station for ages.

 This week me Chavda , Fui and Florence planned out our game called Battlemall. Battlemall is like handball just with different people in different groups. The plan is to get a higher chance of winning instead of the other player winning. This was a really fun activity and the video link is above.

Badminton / Kiwi sport


This week for kiwi sport kevin taught us a new serve. The back hand serve. We had fun at kiwi sport today because we used a real net! Although we only had a short time because of how we kind of messed around. ALTHOUGH we had a really fun time at badminton because of the fun relays we had with other people. We even vsed ! It was really fun but I really wanted to play with group a too to see there abilties.

New Zealand Police vist

This week PBS was lucky enough because the New Zealand police had vist us. A fact we leant from them was the New Zealand police is the only one with a helicopter in the whole country! The New Zealand police are very nice and maybe when you walk by say hi! The New Zealand police came flying down in there helicopter to see us which was pretty amazing. We had a walk around and learnt that the camrea bellow the body of the helicopter was 800,000! Then a friendly but strong dog came to vist and was named Kahu. Kahu is still training but is also very talented. We all were very happy the police and police dog visted us! It also was a great opertunity to get out of the class room and maybe learn something else.

Kiwi can

L.I to have respect full communication.

This week at Kiwi can group B split into two groups. We all played a familiar game called "Volcano" . This game included multi coloured spots that we had to flip over, as the other team needed to flip them downwards or facing the ground. The next activity was Knights,Gentlemen and horses. This game takes lots of people to run around then when the teacher called out one of the three we had to group up and do the following actions.

Graham Hill

Image result for graham hill less stuff more happiness
Graham Hill helps us save us a bit more money and a bit more space. He persuades others to be more open and free. Campings tents,college rooms or hotels all make us feel a bit more free. He also believes that buying more decorations could be a waste as you're going to have to throw it out sooner or later. Instead you should have multiple things in one. For example a little coffee table that turns into a big dining table. A bed that comes out of the wall or a sink thats combined with a toilet. Also he helps others to save more money by persuading them to buy smaller homes.

Graham hill believes that less space equals more happiness and for us to be more free. He also thinks for us to think small,edit ruthlessly and make multifunctional. All this could save us more money.
Image result for graham hill less stuff more happiness
Graham hill had wanted a bigger space in his childhood when he grew up years ago but thought what he wanted could be a waste.

Graham's speech could change our lives a bit more by saving money,feeling more free and less wasting. My favourite part in his speech was the ending because it didn’t really matter what was in the box anymore because remember less space more happiness

Less space, more happiness ~






Today I have made a poster on Graham Hill about how he has explained that Less space,more happiness. His speech is really inspiring and could help anyone anywhere any size or age... Well in my opinion. I have wrote what he has spoke about,what I like about it and whats interesting about it.

Synthesizing / Modeling book.

Badminton

L.I to buddy up and hit the badminton shuttle to each other as many times in a row.
This week for Badminton there was not much people as half of the class was at touch. The badminton session was really fun as me and Sandra could control hitting to each other. Also we surprisingly had the most hits in a row! The session this week though was a bit shorter than expected and for others it was a bit hard for not only them but a little bit for us. This week with Kevin was very fun but we did want more time to play but no only us but others too.

L.I To find out what the lowest common factor is.
Today for maths we had to work out another set of fractions. This time we had to find out what the lowest factor in and what the answers to the maths fractions is this was a hard processes cause it took me longer than expected.

Emergency Services.


L.I To learn about Emergency services and working with others.
This week for inquiry our class split in groups of six. After we had done that we chose a partner in our group. My one was Fau and we were working on the Police and Surf lifesavers. This was a fun task to do as there were little note facts spread around the class that we had to look for to get our information on. We were able to find our books too but was a bit hard as we had to find them at the library.

QAR Template

L.I To make a QAR template.
Today me and Victoria are doing a QAR template on our teacher Mr O's questions. This was a bit hard because he set up a challenge for us and Jack and Alex. The challenge was who ever had the best answers won two chocolate fish each. We have to wait for our results and can not wait for the results to come in and see who won!

Sentence Structure

L.I to explain what is in a sentence structure.
Today for our must do our task was to make a google draw explaining what is a sentence structure made up of. This task was all about our understanding of the sentence structure and how much we have learnt from it. So gathering all this knowledge we have learnt we have put up TREE. TREE stands for the Title,Reveal,Events and Ending. These make up the whole sentence structure. If you want to find out what they mean read the draw above.

Kiwi Can


Today at Kiwi Can we played a few games we have played in the past. One was to untangle our arms as we had to link our hand with someone elses. This was pretty hard to do and our group sadly lost. The next game was 10 down. The game goes by having three teams or more and trying to pass the ball and put it down to get a point. Sadly we lost again but the winning team was Jack and Julians team.

Story cubes


Today I have made a story with the story cubes its self. I first rolled the dices and got a boy but with the shadow of a monster,A monster sheep, A plane, A clock,A pyramid,a tent,a arrow pointing somewhere ,two masks and a wand. My story kind of goes like this. Two creatures living on a planet no man has discovered flew to planet earth and crashed in Egypt. They crashed right in front of a pyramid and set up there for the night. While exploring the inside they both found two mysterious masks and one wand made of pure gold. The rest is up to you!

Badminton

Badminton
It's a new term and our new special teacher for Kiwi sport was here at last. For the last term until the long holidays the school decided to have Badminton for Kiwi Sport. After group 1 had finished there lesson it was our turn to go.


We entered the hall to see our new teacher Kevin. Our teacher Kevin was surprisingly a professional Badminton player! Everyone was excited to learn and ready to play. Kevin explained a couple rules when playing Badminton. Rule one was never swing the rackets around,Rule 2 never use them like swords and three hit the shuttles carefully. For our warm up game it was stuck in the mud.


I was a bit disappointed although the game wasn’t that long. After about 4 or 5 minutes we stopped and Kevin instructed us to grab one racket and shuttle each. I felt excited but first Kevin taught us two ways to grip the racket. First off we had to use our writing hand to grip the racket and hold the racket like your going to shake someone's hand. Next we all had to use our back hand to hold it like a frying pan.


Although I wanted to start I had to learn first. My excitement was growing and we started to use our rackets and shuttles. Although I started struggling I still never gave up. Kevin then set up a competition for us and I got a bit curious. The surprise was to have a juggling competition with our rackets and shuttles. We all were determined to win although I failed both times I still cheered on the rest.


The battle stopped and the two winners were Julian and Jonathan. 3,2,1 GO Kevin called. The two went off juggling trying to win. Sadly Jonathan lost but that still didn’t let him down. The time passed and it was time to go.


I felt sad although I had a great time at Badminton today. We all came running back to our class and talking about the great time we had. This might be my new favourite Kiwi sport session this term!




This week for Writing we had another 40 minute writing challenge. This time we had to test if we did better at writing this time or not as good. I think I had a bit to much conjunctions in my paragraphs and a bit to little punctuation. My organisation was okay and I would say I got marked a 6 for that. I had a little bit of reflections but it did explain a lot. Next time I think I would work on having more ideas and less conjunctions.

Commenting

This week I have commented on Meles amazing post about what happened at Badminton. Make sure to check out Meles blog and her post

Maori

L.I To find out where the Maori locations are and what the English name for it is.
This week for Maori We had to search up the Maori names listed on a sheet that our Maori teacher gave us. Although the task was hard I got used to it.  After finding all of the locations we had to translate the Maori words to English. I had to work with two of my friends to get the work done faster but also easier and quicker. Another thing is to always focus because it was pretty loud while working. Our teacher taught us a lot this week and we hope to hear more about this.

Badminton

L.I to learn Badminton
This week LS1 has gone to find out what we will be doing at Kiwi Sport today. Our teacher Kevin is a professional Badminton player and has been playing for a while now. After group ones session had past we first played stuck in the mud for a warm up game. The taggers was me and Mele. Although there was heaps of people we still manged to tag a lot of people. After a 5 or 4 minute game of stuck in the mud we Kevin had set a couple rules when playing with our rackets and shuttles. Rule one is to never hit people or swing them around,2 never use them as swords and three never hit someone with your shuttle. We were then set off to start juggling with our shuttles. After 3 or 4 minutes Kevin stopped us to learn some tricks. The under leg and around our back. I really enjoyed it although it was hard. Then it was time to test our real skills and start to have a juggling battle. The two winners had to compete against them. The winners were Jonathan and Julian. The winner was Julian but that still didn't let Jonathan down. It was time to go and we all had a amazing time and hope to go next week and for the rest of the term.
