Matariki celebration

Last week it was Matariki. If you wanted to be  there to  see the Matariki stars you needed to wake up at six o’clock in the morning.
I woke up at six and went to Matariki. I saw Mr Halliday, Tarquin, Thomas and other friends. Then it was time to go to the beach. We went to Paihia beach where Alfresco is. Firstly we didn't see the stars so easy. They were covered with clouds so you could not see the Matariki stars. Then Whaea Becks had this app that could see through the clouds. after a while the Matariki stars appeared but you could only see six, because the 7th one was blurry.  Then after awhile we went back to school and there was breakfast. if you wanted breakfast you needed give a gold coin, I gave 2$.

But I just had a toast and some oat biscuit from my bag.


Mataiki

Last week on Tuesday the whole Paihia School went to the Treaty Grounds.The little  kids went before the older kids so when the little kids go before us that’s good because the little kids get more time to play than the bigger kids.

Waitangi Treaty

On Tuesday all the Paihia School kids went to the Waitangi Treaty grounds the juniors went in the morning  and the seniors went in the afternoon.When we arrived at the treaty grounds we had to split into three big groups, some group’s had their class and some had split up into different classes the first one we done was the one when we had to go into the bush and plant some plants. We had to plant kawakawa we tried  find a place to plant our kawakawa.The next activity was manu aute as in kit I went with Reitu we both were done at the same time.When everyone was done we had to fly the kites the only kite that went the furthest was Kingi’s and his partner. The next activity was playing matou and maui plus ki waenganui those were the one’s that I liked. I think that that day was the best.

Last week on Tuesday Paihia School  we went to Waitangi Treaty Grounds we played Matou Maui,ki Waenganui and Manu Aute and it was a sunny day and I had so much fun.

Lily's Tree Research




On Wednesday we did some research about the plants we planted on Thursday so we would know where the plants grow best. I did my research on a plant called Reinga Lily. But we did have quite a few options like Te Kouka, Carex Secta Grass, Manuka, Koromiko, Harakeke and Puriri. Before I had started the research I didn’t even know what Reinga Lily was or the other names so I am glad I chose Reinga Lily because now I now nearly all about it and what a cool plant it is. Our WALT was to find information.

Frey'a Tree Research



On Wednesday we started to learn about a selection of plants. There was Ti Kouka, Carex Secta Grass, Reinga Lily, Manuka, Koromiko, Harakeke, Puriri. I chose Manuka. We have a Manuka forest at my house and I did not know much about them apart from that they can be made into honey. So I wanted to learn more about them. First we had to find a picture, find out the best growing conditions and find any interesting facts about our chosen plant.

A few weeks ago in Te Ngahere the other Students from Te Mounga came into our class and together we did some art on an A3 piece of paper.
The walt was to use up as much space, crayon and dye so that's what I did; for My one I did a nuclear sign and I’m happy with how it came out.

Fidget Spinner Art

A few Weeks ago Te Ngahere And Te Maunga did Some  Fidget Spinner  Art, we were learning to use up all the space and use  dye and crayon on an  A3 piece of paper. It was pretty hard because we had to use up all the space on such a big piece of paper. We used a lot  of different shapes using bowls and cups. Doing the Art was so awesome and we hope we can do it again!!!

Yumm Ice Cream

Yummy Icy Ice Cream Making

WALT Write a recount using the correct structure and use alliteration

On Friday the best day of the week Te Ngahere made yummy vanillary vanilla icy ice cream! We had to work in partners it was Keekee and I, but first Te Ngahere had to all finish off our learning plans and the cool thing is that we all finished it on Friday.

Firstly we had to write our names on a small bag, and next we had put in 1 cup of creamy cream, two tablespoon of sweet sugar and to make it taste like vanillary vanilla we had to put half a teaspoon of vanilla essence.

Next we had to get a big bag a put 2 - 3 handfuls of icy ice, it  made me  feel like I had numb hands,  I did but they were red like the sun.  We also had to put 6 tablespoons of salt in the big bag of icy ice then we had to put the little bag of creamy cream and sweet sugar in the bag of ice Mrs Pou said make sure you close the bag properly or it will be an icy ice salty creamy cream, like what a kid in Te Ngahere did.


Then we had to go outside and shake and shake it.  It was  cold but Keekee and I were taking turns, we had to shake it for like 15 minutes.  When we were finished Alexis and Brodi said we need to get the little bag out of the big bag and I put my hand in the icy ice salty salt and it stung my hand.   

Last  week on Friday Te Ngahere Made delicious Vanilla ice Cream, We all had to write a Recount about how we made it an what we used. We had to use a variety of measurements and ingredients. I was also Learning how to use  the correct structure and use alliteration in my writing. We got to make the ice cream because we all got 100% on our learning plans. We had to work in partners it was Keekee and I. When we were finished we got to eat it and it was salty from the the bag that we put it in.



making ice cream

On a Friday Te Ngahere made ice cream We didn't get to make ice cream free it was a challenge. firstly we needed to finish are learning plans so everyone went and helped each other. We had  to collaborate and achieve this. We wrote a recount and my goal was using commas,  full stops, capitals letters and one idea at time.

Making Ice Cream

Rippa Rugby

Last Friday some of Te Ngahere’s year 7 and 8’s participated in a Rippa Rugby Tournament in Kaikohe.  They played amazingly and responded positively to the instructions of their coach Tony. They played 3 games and won all of them.
Ka mau te wehi!!!
















Learning together is empowering

For the past few weeks Te Ngahere, Te Mounga and Te Moana have been learning about different celebrations from around the world that we have adopted in New Zealand.  
They were grouped in mixed groups with the goal of working collaboratively to achieve the success criteria.
Each group spent 2 sessions with Mrs Pou, Whaea Chrissy, Whaea Beks and Mrs Neumann.  These sessions were used as an ignition point for our inquiry this term.
It was really exciting to see students taking responsibility for not only their own but their peers learning.  
We (the teachers)found this hugely successful and we have decided to begin every new topic in this way.

Term 2 2017 Technology

Term 2 Technology - Year 7 and 8




Year 7 students have started this term with cooking.  They have been learning about the food pyramid and had to add ingredients to make healthy muffins.

Year 8 students are doing wood work.  Students got to choose what they wanted to make.  Some students chose to make wood signs, while others decided to make wooden puzzles.  Students are learning to use a variety of tools and safety.

Rippa Rugby Tournament Made By Chevylee


Last Friday some of the year 7 and 8’s (including myself) went to Kaikohe for a Rippa Rugby Tournament. We had entered the social category  and had three games. We played against, Bay of Islands, Kaikohe Christian School and Rawene. We won all of our games and we all had fun. When we finished the tournament we all went to McDonalds and had Ice Creams. Next year we are going to enter in the competitive category. We had an awesome coach, his name was Tony and he helped us through the games by giving us feedback on what we can do better and training us for the past week. I had so much fun and can’t wait until the next Rippa Rugby Tournament.

Tim Tipene's visit



When Tim Tipene visited Paihia School we were excited. He told us about his childhood and he read us a book called Hinemoa Te Toa, That was funny when he would acted like the other people.
His message was: Everyone has a warrior inside them. I haven’t read his books but I am really looking forward to reading them. I think some of his books are called: The Warrior kids, Taming the Taniwha, Haere and Kura Toa.

Surf Life Saving!



This is my surf life Saving presentation . It has all the safety rules that you have to use when you're in a problem at the beach. I think I need to Improve on not copying and pasting.

Blog Post

Vanya’s Blog post Reflection Date Reflection Date 28.3.17 For the beach clean up we picked up smocks,bear bottles and ruddies it was terrible 7.4.17 I like the triathlon because I like to run, swim and bike. Biking is my favourite because your legs get exercise when you pedal, after swimming we ran back to the school and hopped on the bike and biked around the field two time’s, then we got a musil bar.

The tangelo looks like a orange ball.
lt feels like a squishy orange.
It smells like a small juice orange.
It taste like  orange juice.
It started like bubbles popping in the skin when i rip the skin.

My learning in my Tangelo story I have been trying to put adjectives in my writing and I tried to make it make sense and use the 5 senses in my writing as well.
I learnt to use adjectives in my writing and I think I did it well with that.

My Tangelo

                    The Tangelo
The Tangelo felt hard, soft, bumpy and wrinkled with an orangery color. The Tangelo skin smelt sweet, smooth, strong and ripe. The Tangelo tasted nice, juicy and sweet. As I removed the peeling and took a bite the flesh squirted out and ran down my arms and I felt crushing in my mouth. I was focusing on how the tangelo felt like,taste,smelt,

Image result for TangeloI was learning about how my tangelo tasted like smelled like looked like. I did well on creating a slide and learning different nouns and I could  focus on making my descriptive writing more interesting.

My Apple


My juicy red apple...
https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/0/07/Honeycrisp-Apple.jpg
I was looking at my red shiny apple,
It felt as cold as a ice cube.
I put my apple close to my ear,
I tried to peel it with longish nails.
It made a like a fizzing sound like a fizzy drink,
I gazed at my polished apple one more time.
I took a small bite like it was bitten by a mouse,
I took another bite and it was bigger.
I took a few more big bites,
all you can see was the brown and white seeds.

That was how my apple got gobbled up!


My Learning Map


I think  I did well while doing my learning map because, I wrote what helps me and how much it helps me.

My Yummy Tangelo

Tangelos

CRACK as I feel the delicious ingredients organising into my hands, as the juicy water drips into my hand making it into a swimming pool. It tasted like a magical fairy tale with juicy wet organic seeds. It sweet as a pie. WOW the sour flavour washing down my mouth, making my mouth numb. It sounds like a humongous wave about to fill my mouth with yummy flavours, it was really lumpy and bumpy around the outsides, it was sour as vinegar.

A couple of weeks ago Mrs Pou brought in some tangerines. We had to write about the 5 senses. What it looks like, what it feels like, what it sounds like, what it tastes like and what it smells like. We also had to describe our writing and do a onomatopoeia for the start of the story. Next time maybe I could you adjectives, adverbs and alliteration and find more about why there tangerines.

Remember-Astin


Remember…
Jumping of the wharf and into the dark water of the creek the freezing water soaking your togs
Swimming hard against the outward tide
Trying to stop being swept away by the harsh current.
Hopping out of the water and running to get your towel
Wrapping it around your cold body.
Getting ready to do it again
Facing the cold once more.
That was summer
I was learning to notice  a structure of a piece of writing to write  my own descriptive piece of writing.
We had to start with remember or I remember,
My first line was what you were doing.
My second line was something that was happening
My third line was Something you did
Why you did it We had to figure out the last four lines and finish with that was summer or that was my summer.
We had to use descriptive,interesting words.
What I think I did well was using interesting adjectives.
