The NEXT Foundation: Summer Learning Journey

The Summer Learning Journey for NEXT Foundation from Next Foundation on Vimeo.

Yesterday Panmure Bridge School held a special assembly to launch the 2017 /2018 Summer Learning Journey. We would like to thank all our guests who attended our assembly including Rachel and Hazel from the Wolf Fisher Research Centre, The NEXT Foundation, Manaiakalani, and members of our Board of Trustees. At the assembly we watched this video, I found it really interesting because I  heard about  Daniel's summer learning journey. Seeing learning space 2 being filmed was outstanding because they showed how confident they were and how they can share their learning with others. The Summer Learning Journey helps us to continue learning over the holidays in a fun and interesting way. I am very excited to take part in the Summer Learning Journey over the holiday break.

Collaborative Christmas Challenge


This week Learning Space 2 were split into 12 groups. The Groups I had were Hajera, Joshua V and Cj. We worked collaboratively to create a DLO of the country we chose to researched about. The country we chose was Singapore. A interesting fact I found out about was that they speak four Languages they are English, Malay, Tamil and Standard Mandarin.

PE at Tamaki College

Last week on Friday we went to Tamaki College because we had Tech. After tech we stayed at Tamaki College. We were put in 3 groups, Social Science, PE and Robotics. The group I was in was PE. The first activity we did was Infinity tag. The rules for Infinity tag are when you get tag you have to sit down and when the person that tag you gets tag you can start playing again. After we played a game or two we then played in teams team red and team blue. The team I was in was blue. The second activity we did was called Bench ball. The rules are that you have two catchers and the two catcher have to stand on the other side of the bench and we have to throw the ball to them if they catch it you go and catch with them, you also have two people defending, they block the ball when it's thrown to the other side of the bench. Our third game was Samoan softball, we did't have a bat so we used out legs and hands, we could kick it or throw it, we had to run to the other side of the court and keep our hand on the wall and if we let go we had to run back to the other side. I would like to think Mr Moyes.

Learning to Motivate others

We are learning about leadership because our school leaders are leaving this year and the year 7's will be the leaders. Today we looked at what Motivation means and how it can be useful. We then worked together to create a role play to help us see what Motivating others looks like, so we can learn to Motivate others. This is my Word Art about motivating, and these are the synonyms of the word motivate.

How Children Learn at School?

How Children Learn at School?

Have you ever wondered how your child progress's their learning at school? Children learn in many different ways. One way children learn is through communicating. Whether it is sign language or body language. Children learn by following by example.

Paragraph 1:
Most children have role models. They observer their role models that set by example. From observing other people they learn new things. This expands their knowledge.

Paragraph 2:
They ask questions to learn how or why something happens. When you were a child you were probably very curious. When asking questions most of the time you get their answer. When you research about things it helps you to learn more.

Paragraph 3:
On their learning journey they would come a cross things that they would disagree or agree with. children would take risks to open up multiple opportunity for them.

Children learn to do things in many different ways. Not all children are the same which make's them unique. Children learn to do better things for the future and to learn more about their community.

This week for writing we've been practising how to write an Explanation because the writing test is coming up. For the activity we had to get in groups of two, my partner was Tiava. We started off talking about how children learn. After that we had to plan our writing, we planned our writing on the back of our paper. Once we finished we had to include a Title, Introduction, Paragraph 1, 2 and 3 and a Conclusion. 

Screencastify Lite

Last week LS2 was learning how to plan a screen cast and also how to record our learning on screencastify. The screenshot above shows my maths strategy for multiplication. The audio section is a recording of my script. On Friday Mrs Grant taught LS2 how to download screencastify, how to log in, and how to record our learning. The link in my planning template is the link to my DLO.

Wednesday, 27 September 2017


Panmure Bridge has been standing for 60 years and that is pretty impressive. To remember this our teachers have decided to do a production. For the production we danced through the decades and had Kapa Haka and Pasifika perform. In LS2 we are dancing to Foot loose, Stayin Alive and I see red. These are songs from the 70's and 80's.

Kiwi Can

Today LS2 went to Kiwi Can. During Kiwi Can we played three games which was Hand Soccer, 10 down and Objects. In Hand Soccer we were first spited into two groups. We each given numbers from 1 to 10. Mr Malo had to call out two numbers and those two numbers had to try and get a goal between the two cones with their hands. It was a very challenging games because we had to use our hand to get the goal. My favourite game was Objects because it was a very creative game. In this game we were spited into four teams. Mr Malo and Mrs Latoia had to put an object in the middle and each group had to figure out anything to do with that object for example one of the objects was a hula hoop. What my group did with it was pretending it was a basketball hoop. I think LS2 could play this game again.

Cross Country

This term we had cross country, cross country was really challenging because we had to do five laps and run on top of two hills. It was easy at the beginning because I had a lot of energy, but each lap got harder. I was was really tired on the 4th lap and my legs were hurting.
The thing that challenged me the most was going up against Mataio but he manged to beat me.

What is a coalition?

Today in LS2 we were learning about coalitions and how they can change/affect the elections. A coalition is a alliance which is formed between political parties. In the NZ elections, Winston Peters who is the NZ First party leader basically decides whether Labour or National win the election. So if he decides to team up with Labour, they will have enough seats to rule the government and vice versa for National.

Let me Tell you something about..."

Let me tell you something about lunchtime at PBS. When the bell rings everyone rushes like wild animals chasing its prey, When they get to their lunch they eat their sandwiches so fast, it’s like the speed of light. Once they finish they sprint down the stairs like baby gorillas, They all race to the four square grid just to play a game of handball, Once they get there, they wait for the person with the ball. If the person with the ball is not there yet they wait but same of the players play master. The people playing master shoot so fast you can hear “yay” every time. The younger students run around with lots of energy, they run like wild foxes. They’re like superheroes with lots of energy, because they don’t ever get tired of running. The person with the hand ball gets to the courts and every player runs to the line waiting to play, We can hear loud shouting and screaming, If the winner win’s they shout,  “Yahoo! I Win! I Win! I’m King!” The loser always replies by saying, “I’m going to get you out because you got me out!” or “I’m the real King, haha!”. But once the bell rings everyone still wanted to play so they keep playing for a few moments until the teacher tells them to go to class.

For today’s writing we had to partner up with the person were sitting next to, my partner was Joshua W. We did writing for 4 minutes, once the 4 minutes up we had to proofread it to each other, Joshua read my writing and his feedback was not to use got and get too much, He also told me to use more powerful words to make my describing clear. I tried to use language feature so we can hook in our reader.

25 Words Summary

Keeping Maori storytelling alive is important because it helps people remember their culture’s history and when the hear stories about it, it keeps them captivated.
