Why it's great to be me

Today in LS2 we have been exploring DARE. We had to find out a bit more about ourselves. We then, got into groups and made a word cloud on why it is great to be the age we are currently(11 - 13). One thing I learnt about myself was what my goals are. One of them was that I wanted to the greatest fighter in the world. One reason I like being the age I am now, is that I can set myself up for the future, if I continue to work hard in school.

Today at tech we have completed our clocks and are starting a new rotation next week. The design that I choose for my clock is a pizza. First we had to finish painting our clocks and the side of our side pieces. Next we glued our pieces together. Then Mrs Ferguson and Mrs Anderson put the clock mechanisms inside our clocks. We then let the glue dry.

Reciprocal Reading Evaluation DLO

For reading this week Fraidoon taught us how to do reciprocal reading. We were recorded having a learning conversation. The next day we watched the video to see what we did. I saw that I was on task and was working well with my group. I think that I need to work on asking more questions when I am unsure of something and to talk a little bit more.

Career DLO

Yesterday LS2 have started creating a DLO about what job we wanted to do. I decided that I wanted to be a police officer. But I know that it is going to take a lot of work to get to my target. I have been searching online to find good information to put on my work. The difficult part of this activity was to find how much money you get paid an hour or week.

Flex tangle art

Today we made a Flex tangle which is 4d pattern which we made using folded paper we thought carefully about the colours we chose. We chose to do hot colours on one side and cold colours on the other side the reason we did this is because contrasting colours stand out more and make the art pop more.

Kate Sheppard sketchnote.

For reading we have been learning about Kate Sheppard and the women's suffrage movement. The suffrage movement happened over one hundred years ago. In our sketch note we have added in some definitions of words and have answered some questions. For this task I worked with Aj, Lyndon and Daniel. We all had to talk with each other about our learning so that everyone knows what we have been learning about.

Kate Sheppard DLO

For this task we had questions that we had to answer. I worked with Aj, Daniel and Lyndon to complete this DLO. It is about Kate Sheppard and the suffrage movement. We had to do a lot of talking to get this done because everyone had to know what they were doing. Talking helped us get this finished because we had to talk to see if it makes sense. 

Rewindable Learning

Panmure Bridge School has a dance production coming up and I am in in the song footloose but lucky for us we have rewindable learning which is learning you can watch over and over again to help us get better at things even when you are at home if you really wanted to so I can keep watching the dance and practising until I get the dance perfect.

A or An

Today we were learning when to use A and when to use An before a word. If a word begins with a vowel (a-e-i-o-u) or a silent h for example I want An apple for morning tea . When we use A we use it for words beginning with all the other words except for the vowels. The DLO above shows you what we use 'an' or 'a' for. I have also included a picture.

2 Words 1 Minute

My Siblings are very annoying because they are loud they don’t listen to me and I don’t like them because
20 in 1 minute
they do dumb stuff and they are scared of the dark. They leave the light on, they moan to much and they don’t have a resin to moan about. The touch stuff that they are not loud to touch they cry when they get growled at.
46 in 2 minute

Our challenge today was to write our ideas clearly so that it make sense. We had only had 4 minutes to do this in, and 1 minute to check our writing. Our task was called ''2 words... 1 minute! we had to choose one of the words then power write for 1 minute, count our words carry on for 2 more minute, count our words; then finish with 1 more minute. it was very fun and I found it very hard to do.  

Woman's Suffrage movement Summary

In reading we have been looking at the women's suffrage movement in New Zealand which was led by Kate Sheppard over 100 years ago. Our task was to write a 25 word summary about what the suffrage movement was about. To finish this task my group and I had to work collaboratively, talk with each other and ask questions. We learnt that Kate Sheppard and the rest of the women that were apart of the suffrage movement had a huge impact on the way New Zealand is today.

Let me tell you something.

Let me tell you something about lunchtimes at PBS. After the bell rings everyone races outside to play handball. I don’t bother eating my lunch because I want to be in king in handball. When I usually get there I end up in line waiting in line until my turn. When I get bored of handball I walk over to the park to play tag. When I get there I am in, so I run around the park to catch someone. When I am tired I sit down and have a rest. Then I walk to the taps and have a drink and then I run back to the park to play tag again. When we are having a good time playing around the bell rings and ruins everyone's fun. We all stop playing the juniors stop screaming and we all walk back to our classrooms.

Today my writing group wrote a story about our lunchtime at PBS. My partner and I had to read our stories to each other to make sure they make sense. I had to change some words to make my writing make sense and I had to add more powerful describing words to make my story better.
