Kiwi Can - Reflection

This term our topic for Kiwi Can was Integrity and our theme was accountability. Integrity is doing the right thing when no one's looking. Accountability is being responsible for your own actions, and owning up to your own mistakes and managing yourself. You could be Accountability by showing up on time for Teach, or showing up to practice with the gear you need. We did a activity called 2 truth 1 lie, We had to tell 1 lie and 2 truth, your class mats had to figure which one was a lie. (eg I have never broken a charger before, although I have crack my Chromebook screen just once, and I take my Chromebook home, so which one is a lie?

My first ever flight

My first ever flight

I lived at the end of the wood with my family. As the sun went down and the moon slowly watched over us my family woke up. One night I said to myself “Tonight's the night of my first flight!” I felt nervous and scared but suddenly I had the feeling that I could do it. The wind dashed behind me but luckily my talons kept me from flying away. I lifted one leg and was quivering, but I still focused on my meal, so I let my wings feel freedom. “I’m ready to fly,” I whispered to myself but my family heard me so they came to cheer me on. I was ready to launch, so I leap off the edge. I was scared because I thought I was going to fall, when I suddenly realized I was flying with the wind. I imagine all the time I’ve wanted to fly and this was the chance. I heard cheering around me and it motivated me to keep going. I saw my parents and sibling smiling. I felt proud of myself because it was my first ever flight. “Yes I’m flying.” I murmured to myself. I spread my wings like an airplane. I feel the strong gush of the night air pass my face and try to stay strong. I flapped my wings to gain speed and veered around in circles feeling happy of myself. What was supposed to be a boring flight had just gone a whole lot more better! Suddenly out of nowhere I hear my stomach crying for food. So I let out examining for my favorite snack. “Slimy, wet worms”. I whispered to myself.

This term my group were focusing on writing narratives. We wrote a narrative about our first ever flight. I started off with a struggle but then I had help from my teacher. I tried to use more advanced word for example instead of using look I wrote examine. I think next time I need to write more information in my narratives .I enjoyed writing this narrative and hope to write another narrative.

This is why we need a Skeletal System

Today for inquiry we created a Gif about the skeletal systems. We used EzGif to to create this Gif. We used Play-Doh and toothpick to create a human figure to show you what it looks like without bones and with bones. The toothpick stands for the "skeleton" on the human clay. We learnt that there are 300 bones for new borns and 206 for adults. The reason why we created this Gif was to show you why we need the skeletal system and how important our framework of bones are.

Word Clines

Today we created a DLO about words clines. All the words had to mean the same thing and to relate to the same topic. I think that clines are words that we can use to make more powerful sentences.

A summer and winter walk

In summer I get dressed for school and make sure my arms see the sunlight.
The street awake and chattering.
Trees motionless and attractive.
Birds are flying and whistling.
Clouds high in the sky and far, far away from humanity.
Carefree people laugh and smile.
The bell goes but no one hurries to class.

In winter I get dressed for school and make sure my arms are hidden from the darkness.
The street asleep and silent.
Trees moving and unsightly.
Birds are hiding in their nests.
Heavy clouds are low in the sky, nearly touching the earth.
Downcast people moan and whine
The bell goes and everyone hurries to class.

Today John, Miki and I, wrote our own version of Two Day Wonder by David Hill. The poem was a about a good day and bad day. We created our own version that describes walking to school in summer and in winter to show how writers can use juxtaposition to paint a clear picture in the reader's mind. Juxtaposition is when two things are side by side that are opposites.

To help us use powerful describing words we looked at synonyms. We then used the synonyms to create a word cline. This helped us to see some words are stronger than other words. We tried to use strong words to hook in our audience by painting a picture in their mind,

The 25 word summary was about La Tour Mollet (Ted) D'Auvergne and how he didn't finished his drink before he went to war. This story was sad and happy, the sad part was that he died in the war and the happy part was that people remembered him.      

Monday, 30 April 2018


This week we where reading a sophisticated book called the Memorial. This book was interesting because it was a boy telling about  the story. The DLO I created shows you about the family's tree.

2 Words 1 Minutes Winter Olympics

Equipment Respect

This year Olympics was held in Pyeongchang. The participate train and they also get their equipment ready, for the challenge ahead, they also respect their opponents. This year Winter Olympics theme is Passion Conviction, They a lot of countries that come and watch the Olympics because they want to cheer on, their role models. They are Gold medals, Silver medals and Bronze medals. They are so much sports in the 2018 Olympics. The Winter Olympics sport has Ice and Snow, Do you know what this year logo stand for? Did you know that the top and bottom line stands for heaven and earth and the right line and left stands for people coming together and the logo above it is people coming together.

Today we used the ‘2 words 1 minute’ challenge to write a description about the Winter Olympics.
After talking in pairs about the things we knew about the winter Olympics we created a list of words
(vocabulary) that would help us write our description. We chose the words ‘equipment’ and ‘respect’
to help us think about what we were going to write.

We talked about ideas with a partner, then we had 1 minute to put those ideas into sentences.
We had to try our best to use all the words on our vocab list. After the minute was up we had 2
minutes to reread what we had written and make changes if anything didn’t make sense,
or if we had words and punctuation in the wrong place. When we finished checking we had 2
more minutes to carry on writing our descriptions.

All the word I highlighted in my paragraph are the words I used on my word list. Today I did really well on using my word list. I need to work on my powerful words so that I paint a picture in the readers head.

Math Electives

This week's maths work was to figure out an equation on electives for a school, to do it we needed to use fractions and decimals. After I finished the equation I then just added in the answers on the sides and the working out underneath the problem, during the time that I was working it out I was confused at one point until I realised that because I'd thought that there were only 24 students I done the problem wrong. I then quickly just re-read the first part of it and realised my mistake, after that I then proceeded to finish the problem.

Panmure Bridge School Whakatauki

 At Panmure Bridge School we are learning about whakatauki, our Panmure Bridge School whakatauki is manaaki whenua, manaaki tangata, haere whakamua. It means care for the land, care for the people, go forward. This means care for the land of our school, care and respect the learners around you, and be confident in yourself to strive for excellence. On my DLO it talks about our whakatauki, and our school values which are C.A.R.E. 

Softball reflection

Yesterday group A started kiwi sports, and the kiwi sport is softball. The first thing we did was warming up we did star jumps, and we had to run to a tree. Once we finished warming up we learnt how to catch and how to throw, and then we learnt how to catch a ground ball, and also a sky ball.
I would like to think Allison for teaching us and I can't wait until out next section.   

Treaty of Waitangi

For reading this week we read the second novel in the five part series about the treaty of Waitangi, this book was about the week before the treaty was going to be signed. To do the activity we first had to get into a group and in those groups everyone read the book, after we'd read the book our next task was to write down important words related to the story. Once that was done the task after that was to create a DLO for the summary that we'd done.

First lesson in Graphics

This week Friday was our first day of tech, our teacher was Miss Ferguson. We had to create our own avatar and then create a DLO and put our favorite thing on it.

How is Chinese New Year Celebrated?

How is Chinese New Year Celebrated?

KUNG HEI FAT CHOI! ( Happy New Year) Did you know that Chinese New Year is a very important time of the year, because that’s when everyone comes together. They come together to eat traditional food with their families. Have you ever wondered why Chinese people Celebrate Chinese New Year?

Chinese people believe that there was a legend about a monster called Nian. The monster Nian only comes out in the darkest night of the full moon and when the full moon is in a disguise. Nian would sneak into the village and scare the people and the animals.

But one day there was a man, that taught them Nians weakness. Nians weakness was loud noises, Fire and the color Red. One day Nian came back and when he got there he was frightened, because the people we're wearing red clothes head to toe and drumming the dram loudly, and they lit up all the firecracker they had.

Instead of wrapped gifts that they give on Christmas, kids get red envelopes stuffed with lucky money in it from, grandparents, parents and many more. The happy fact is that kids are allowed to spend their money as much as they want.

Other countries might not have Chinese New Years as a public holiday, but they still celebrate on roads and in the cities.

Kiwi can

Today for Kiwi can we had different Kiwi can teachers and they are Mr Matt, Miss Lily and Mr Latu, We talked about positive relationship and rule's. The activity we did was the Mile game. I would like to thank Mr Matt, Miss Lily and Mr Latu.
