The Hero Within!

Here is my literacy task was this week. This week we read a story about a girl who was bullied because she had a disease. We read the story and answered the questions given by our teacher. The story is linked onto the title so if you have free time check it out and read the story.

Maths Problems

Here is my weekly presentation from this week. This week our focus was on BEDMAS. We had a variety of questions ranging from simple like addition and subtraction to more difficult questions like division and multiplication. I have definitely learnt more from this presentation because sometimes I find BEDMAS quite difficult. At the end of this presentation on the last slide I have added 10 questions for you to answer so have a look and try out the questions.

Reflection - Term 3 2017

Makey Makey Term 3 2017 Reflection -

Last term our focus was on Makey Makey machines. We used makey makey to create our games on Scratch. Yvonne, Cameo and I created a tune using Scratch and the makey makey. First Zoey came into extension and taught us how the makey makey and scratch works.

Once we knew how they both worked we got on with our task. Our task was to create a tune or song on scratch. Then we had to create cardboard instruments using the things Zoe gave us. Once they were both created we hooked up the makey makey machine and proceeded on with our task of making a tune with makey makey.  

Overall I found the task quite challenging because I personally do not have as much experience with scratch and everyone else. But it was a great experience to create a tune a nd instrument with the girls in my group because I got to know more about what they knew and what their interests were in making new things.

What is a good role model?

What it means to be a good role model. Are you a good role model, do you show support, encourage and show respect to other people? In this explanation writing I am going to be explaining the reasons of what a good role model is and how a good role model sounds and acts.

Good role models are the types of people who encourage, motivate and respect other people. Good role models encourage others to never ever give up, they motivate people to strive and succeed, respect their peers and treat others the way they want to be treated. For example one of my role models is my mama. My mama has always encouraged and motivated me throughout my life at school. My mama has always encouraged me and told me that I should never give up with the things I do and achieve. 

To me being a good role model is someone who is positive all the way, confident with all things in life and someone who is bubbly and funny. Role models are people who are positive, being positive is a big thing in being a role model. Being a role model you have to be confident and face the challenges in life. You may not always be happy with the things you do but it’s best to be positive all the time. My mother is another role model of mine because she is very confident with the things she does, she is positive most of the time and always shows happiness towards others. 

A role model is someone who is hard-working, mature and self-talkative. Most of my role models are very hard-working and powerful women. They are very strong and mature and have believed in themselves all the way. My last two role models would have to be my teachers Mrs Ilaoa and Mrs Sio. The reasons why they are my two role models are because they are very hard-working. They work hard, never give up and always try to teach us new things at school. Our class can be a handful or more sometimes but my two role model teachers are always strong and push us until we succeed.

So now that you’ve read my story about “Role Models” are you strong, powerful and motivational enough to be a good role model? Everyone has the strength to be a role model. So use your strength and become a better role model then you already are!

Musical Madness!!!

Musical Madness!!! Yay, the term has officially started. This terms topic is "Musical Madness". Today we had our whole school immersion assembly where each year level/team performed an item based around the topic "Musical Madness". This term the topic is going to be based around composing music, how it fits into story telling and how it affects our emotions and lots more.

The assembly started off by our senior management team performing there item/song called "Musical Madness". They sang their song about musical madness and talked to the school about our topic and what we are doing this term. My favourites teams by far were Team's 3 , 4 & 5. I found Team 3's item interesting because it was about story telling through music. Their aim this term was to tell stories using music and sounds.

Moving on to Team 4. Team 4's item was movie of their teachers in car lip-syncing to different songs. Their aim this term was to find out more about music and make there own instruments. Then the best team (Team 5). Team 5's item was a live item of the teachers watching a movie and how music affects the mood.   They played a series of different music sounds and to the same movie and chose which one fits in the best. Their aim this team is how music affects the mood and how it fits into movies. 

Overall I am looking forward to Term 4. I am so interested and excited to learn more about music and how it affects our lives. I enjoyed this terms immersion assembly and I can't wait to learn about "Musical Madness".
