Weasel Poem

Image result for weasels

I am cute
I am small,
but that is not all.
I may look harmless
and tender,
But I am quite slender.
I may be small
and weigh so little,
but I am so much more, than those beasts (people) may figure.



For writing last week we have created a poem, including how we would be if we were looking through there eyes. I thought for a very long time, and came up with a weasel to mix things up and make mine different to others. I was very happy with the ending of my poem and people really liked it too! My favourite poem from other people would be Sky's poem about kittens!

Story ideas/ tech

For tech I also made story ideas! The three ideas all link to each other. The first idea was about how two girls named Gloria and Faith are teens and take the bus to there destination. The second is when they were younger and they were not allowed to take the bus or walk by them selves, and instead walk with there parents. Unfortunately I couldn't finish the third idea.

Back drop ideas.

For tech I have also made some backdrop ideas! The first two is made by me too. The first one is how Gloria or Faith would be taking the bus, because there older and there parents have more trust in them and the second when there little and they walk with there parents. The third is just there bed room though and was taken from scratch.

Digitech / Sprites


For tech we have been making sprites! My two main sprites is Gloria ( The brown haired girl ) and Faith ( the black haired girl ). The two little ones are the little version of Gloria and Faith. My favourite out of all of these sprites is Gloria! She was the first sprite I made and I was very happy with the results for her character.

Kiwi can

Last week for Kiwi Can,
We talked about goal settings, and why it is important to set goals for yourself.
It is very important to set goals, because it will set you up for your future goals in life.
Our activity was golden child which was awesome!
We showed a great team effort and we were able to get some people out.
I really enjoyed this session and hope to do,
golden child again!

Kiwi can

This week for kiwi can we have learn't about problem solving and how it affects our lives.
 It is important to problem solve with each other, to make work better, to create better ideas and to finish a job! 
Our activity was rock paper scissors, we had to get into partners and vs each other face to face. Also our main game we played was hand soccer! It was also a great activity to do. 

Tech reflection


Today for tech we have been working on our detail designs and our shared survey. We all gave our opinions about which character should be the main one, the main background and the main story idea. I really liked the amount of effort that was put in to most of the year 7 surveys. They were very creative, and there was so much wizard theme ones too, which seemed to interest me. I really enjoyed tech, it was fun and it was great to hear that people were giving feed back.

Why is sleeping healthy / FINAL DLO



For the past three week my reading group has been studying about sleep and why its so important for our health and lives. For the first two weeks we have had some sessions with our teachers about sleep and if we get the right amount of sleep. Not only this but we have also gained more and more inferring skills. Our group has been getting along for the past three weeks and we were able to manage, and finish off our final DLO we will be presenting. This will be quite exciting as we will also gain more confidence! 

Medi cube opening




Yesterday PBS had a special opening of our very own Medi Cube. We are the first school in the country to have our very own. Not only this but 50 very special vips joined in with the gathering. This was exciting for us, as their will be no payments to have a check up and we will be provided with free medicine. Star ships company and barfoot and Thompson joined us. This was very exciting and their was even a joke thrown into it ! The following joke was what is a legless cow? GROUND BEEF ! Funny, right? Other than that we also proudly presented it opened right here in Panmure Bridge school!

Do we all have the chance to get a healthy sleep?



For reading I have collaborated with Freeman, Jeremiah, Ofa, Affonso and Mataio. Our group had the chance to have a decision about answering two questions. We booked in two slots, but we first started with, do we all get the chance to get a healthy sleep? We used our inferring skills to compare two kids bed rooms and who got the healthier sleep and who didn't. By using our inferring skills we managed to describe the features of the picture, if they got a healthy sleep and how hard it would be to fall asleep. Although if you are not aware of what inferring means, then it is just reading between the lines to find clues to answer questions or guessing something that YOU think is true. The site we used will be linked here >> Where children sleep .

Anaesthetist

Today I have made a poster / DLO about Anaesthetist's and how they work, how much they get paid, what they need to learn to get in and why I wanted to be a Anaesthetist. The back story behind this, is that I really enjoy helping people through pain. Basically I want to help people out by putting them to sleep for a good amount of time so the pain is all over for them. It is pretty pain full when getting surgery done, so I think its best if they rest for a bit. Although even if I haven't had surgery, I still feel pain and I wont lie it hurts. So in the future I want to help people through that experience.

Career quest.



Today LS2 has token a quiz about careers and what kind of careers you can chose from. Either you want to be a nurse or some one who likes tech ! Its your choice. The website I used is called career Quest. For me I really want to be someone who helps someone after or during surgery. So basically I really want to be a Anaesthetist

lighthouse



This week I have made a google draw about a light house I found that was on sale. Using my smart searching skills I found a lighthouse on sale from Scotland ! We had to find out the amount of money the light house had costed and had to exchange it to New Zealand dollars. The light house I was able to find was Cantick head lighthouse. We also had to write about why we would like to "Buy" the light house we had chosen. I thought that is had peaceful open spaces and how it was near the water with amazing views!!

Matariki



Today LS2 had collaborated with LS1 for the day to make a wonderful Matariki poster or DLO.

A lot of group discussions occurred but all worked out in the end.
With each of our skills we managed to make a slide each and expressed what we learnt about Matariki.
The ideas our group shared was great and made the DLO better than we expected it to be.
We all used our smart searching skills to find out more about Matariki and how Maori people celebrate it.
Some of our facts were from different websites, but written in our own words.
But we all had to use some of our prior knowledge about Matariki too.

Tech / the last day of Mr Grundy's Pewter casting group


Tech last term and quarter this term was amazing and fun. Mr Grundy has taught us a lot about pewter casting. This was a very fun lesson we had and hope to come again and learn more from Mr Grundy. Recapping on what we did at the very start was finding the designs we want and who want to make it for. Then we started drawing on a piece of wood then cut it out. After that Mr Grundy poured the Metal Pewter inside of the mold and let it set for a while.  Then we cut the top part off and starting to file it. Then we used sandpaper to get it to a nice look then we used water and a special liquid to finish it off. Thank you so much Mr Grundy !

Speech mark texting story.


“Hi!” said Nathaniel.
“Hi Nathaniel.” replied River.
“We are going to the movies later,
want to tag along?”
asked Nathaniel.
“Sure!” said River.
“Okay me, Travis and Aaron will see you at 6.”
replied Nathaniel.
“Okay see you later!” said River.


Today Ms Kirkpatrick's writing group has had another speech mark practise by using the fake I phone texting site >Fake I phone texting site. This is a really good practise for us and to use speech marks properly. We started writing a normal conversation on the Iphone texting site and finished off writing on a google doc. Although we used speech marks to edit the messages on the doc. This was a fun yet easy task because we practised and did this exercise last week.

Poems / Summer vs Winter walking to school.


Summer
The sun beams as I walk outside while footpaths are packed with people feeling the warm summer breeze, instead of driving in their cars they're enjoying the wonderful gleam. I prance into school and the frisky feeling comes back, just like the time when the winter was absent and never came back until...


Winter

Treading outside sending shivers up my spine, I despise the winter and all of its grime. Roads congested with cars, people not wanting to step outside. I stroll into school while clouds link and shelter the sky while sunlight veils above the dusky grey sky bellow.



This week LS2 created their own poems about walking to school in the summer compared to the winter. The key was using our understanding of juxtaposition. We used juxtaposition to use two opposites to make the poem pop more and make the picture or story more interesting. We got inspiration from the poem called " Two day wonder " which went as a boy had a terrible day and he was sick and the world was boring and depressed, while the next verse was all happy and fun in games.

Another thing we did was use very powerful words in our poem. In my poem I have gotten breeze, gleam, frisky, shivers, despise, grime, shading, peeks and gloomy. Another thing we did was create a word cline. Marieta and I both did this activity collaboratively. If you are confused about what word cline's are then it is simply a scale going up from bottom to top. We then list weaker words from the bottom and working our way up using powerful words.

Mathematical me



Sky and I tested out some body measurement experiments for maths. Most of the experiments worked but some failed. We used a piece of string to measure ourselves to get the results from the measurements. My partner Sky and I had a lot of fun doing this activity because it was so surprising when most of the experiments worked. One of many was your arm span is the same as your height which was correct!

The Tunnel

The Tunnel

A long trail leading to a new mystery. A glint of light piercing through the tall, dark, spooky trees.
It lead me right to a tunnel made of twigs.
Hiking through the damp forest I have never seen this type of surprise before.
A trail leading to a underground cave as dark as night.
My eyes caught sight of emerald green stones lying within the cave.
Eyes sparkling the colour blue watching the emerald stones shimmering like stars.
The aroma of daisies filled the air with their stunning scent. Birds chirping perfect melodies.
I then took my first step through the twig like tunnel.

Mary's Wonderland

Mary's wonderland.

Mary was a extraordinary seven year old girl who went on wonderful adventures. She felt a burst of excitement run through her as her eyes looked at a pretty cover. Mary loved all kinds of books, fiction, non fiction, picture books and novels. She flipped to the first page and was transported into a new land. Mary's eyes were locked on the page reading each line. Ever since Mary laid her eyes on the first book she ever read, she was gone to another place. Mary felt safe and calm. She felt like she was in paradise and flipped the page to read the next exciting hook. As Mary was flipping through the pages her brain was gathering more and more knowledge each time. After a bit she could imagine herself soaring through the sky just like how the hawk was in Mary’s book.

This week Tamaki started with our 5-7-10 writing. We had to write a character description about the picture above. 5-7-10 means 5 minutes to write as much as possible, 7 minutes to talk to a partner and 10 minutes to finish your character or story off.

Magical chairs

Magical Chairs

Dennis always had a love for chairs.
Brown chairs, skinny chairs or fat chairs,  you choose.
Growing up Dennis had experienced magic.
He had dreamt about becoming a world famous magician.
After a couple years of planning Dennis finally knew what he wanted to do.
Dennis practiced his magic on chairs and became wildly popular for his tricks.
Time went by and he peeked through the drapes before he performed at his last ever show…
Chairs went flying, while the wooden floor slowly turned to grass.
This was his most wonderful performance the world had ever seen.
From then on he is remembered to be one of the greatest magicians who ever lived.

This week I also finished my character description about a picture of a man standing in front of a white background and chairs floating around.

Lost... / Writing

Lost…
I was hiking towards the beautiful, colourful and bright forest.
The sun beaming through the trees and flowers blooming colours.
It was like paradise here. I danced through the grass.
After a while of prancing around I then found myself lost
.  Although the view was great and you could just see hawks flying high and butterflies showing off their beautiful patterns.
The view was so lovely I didn't really mind if was lost for a while.


After a couple of minutes wondering I started getting worried.
It was now six o clock and it was almost dawn.
I had settled on the long green grass and laid my bag on the grass.
I unzipped my bag and pulled out the map I had brought before my trip.
I then laid my eyes and the huge but helpful map. I was located in the middle of the forest so all I needed to do was walk straight ahead.
After awhile of hiking I could feel my legs starting to tremble. I was getting weak fast.
It was now 6:30pm and I could see the sun slowing going down.

After a while of hiking I could slightly see houses and roads. I felt a sudden spark light up in me.
I was so glad I had found my way out. I put my map back into my bag and walked towards the city.
After the journey I felt safe, happy and glad to be home.

This week I have finished writing about the lost man. So if you are wondering why some sentences are highlighted is because the yellow highlight is simple,blue compound and pink was complex. We did this so we all now that we use a mix of different sentences to make the reader think the story was interesting.

Agent of change

This week LS2 looked at how we could be a agent of change in our own 2018 learning journey. We all thought about how we should focus on work more in 2018. We need to think about the future and work harder. But you shouldn't always work hard as sometimes you could get selfish and think your the best person. But I want to take risks and be more confident in front of everyone. Taking risks is a good opportunity to show everyone your thoughts and ideas.

Pewter casting / Tech

This week for pewter casting we started on tracing our  designs. After that we then cut out the outlines on our pieces of wood then waited for the pewter to melt. after that we poured the pewter in the molds and then next week we will polish them and cut the top off.

PBS Whakatauki

Today I have made a google draw on our schools Whakatauki. We have wrote about  what it means and why it is here. A reason is because this school cares for the land,people and we also go forward. Our PBS WHAKATAUKI was made by Miss Moris and other great teachers.
