Zambia

 Last week me and Chavda also made a DLO on Zambia, a commonwealth country. Zambia was a really nice country and learning about it really made me happy!

Commonwealth Values

Last week me and Chavda worked on the commonwealth values. We also learnt about borobi and what he does.  Our other post is about Zambia.

Finding the missing angles



Today for maths we filled out a angles work sheet . I got some help from Shakaia and Sky. This was not as hard as we got to work in partners and work. After the test I was able to get 12 right! But after that we then made a google draw about one of our right answers. I used the left angled triangle as I got it right in the test.

Duffy / books

Today we got greeted with Taylor and Matt. They both did something amazing in their lives as Taylor came first in most of her bmx rides and Matt plays for the blues. It was such a surprise seeing these two. The Duffy books I got rewarded with was Amulet book 1 and Geronimo stilt ion.

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.

Professor Stephen Hawking

 Unfortunately last week something very sad happened.... Yes you may know that Professor Stephen Hawking's died. We have made a DLO respecting what he did in the past and about his disease. We studied a lot about him and hope this will teach you lots about this man. He was known as a physicist and was a very smart person. He will always hold apart in the world even though he had died.

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.

Fractions re cap.

Today me and Shakaia solved these fraction problems... We had a re cap with our teacher and solved all these questions but one... We didn't have enough time but we still did okay! It was a really nice opportunity to have a re cap challenge!

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.
