Today for LS2's Matariki Study we were given three task to do which was learning about cultures winter solstice, creating an animation explaining how seasons work and what the summer and winter solstice are, and the last task was learning about the legends of the seven stars. Jeremiah and I decided to do diffrent cultures winter solstice. First we watched a video about how Chinese people celebrate winter solstice. After that we had to made a DLO on another winter solstice celebration. Jeremiah and I created a DLO about German's Winter Solstice which is called 'Yule'. The DLO above will tell you some information about Yule. One interesting fact I found about Yule was that the Yule log was the reason Yule got its name. The information below German Yule Celebration is the reference of the site we got our information from.

PBS Black Out Day

Today PBS were told to either wear black or read clothes. The clothes were to support the All Blacks and Lions team. Black clothes were most wanted to wear for black out day. Our whole school except for four people wore black clothes for the All Blacks since they are versing the lions this week Saturday. We did some activities to support the All Blacks team. First we went in the all to see some videos of the All Blacks and Lions history of rugby. After that we had to sing the Tutira Mai song for the lions tour that is on now. We were really good at singing. Soon the Kapa Haka group performed the haka while LS2 were holding up papers that had the players from the All Blacks. I holed up number 22 which was TJ Perenara. Soon we went outside and spelt All Blacks with our bodies. It was really amazing because Mr Wong used the school drone to record us. Our last activity was passing the ball challenge. Our school formed a big circle around the courts and had to pass a rugby ball. While passing the ball around we all shouted "All Blacks". We managed to get the ball around with know one dropping the ball. I think today was a really incredible day.

Intro to DigiTech

For the hour of code game we had to add codes to make Maui and Moana go to where they want to go. For example if they had to catch a fish and it's on the right we had to insert a block that says 'turn right'. There were levels from 1 to 19. I managed to finish all of the levels. It was a really fun coding game.

For our Animated Digital story about Abby and Devin we made a Animated Story about two characters name Abby and Devin who go to the park. 

For this activity we had to write down examples of the healthy living in the Tamaki Community. One of the example was the food we prepare and cook at home.

Statistical Investigation Pie Chart - Bio-degrade

This pie chart shows you how many years it takes for these materials to biodegrade (break). I can tell by this graph that plastic bags and styrofoam take a really really long time until it gets destroyed. I can also see that vegetables take a really little amount of time to get destroyed or to dissapear.

Dance - Evaluation Movie


Today for Dance Mrs Anderson recorded our dance evaluation to see what we looked like and what we had to do next time. My group did very well but the only thing we had to work on was our timing. On the first moves we did good timing but during the dance we didn't do good timing. I also think we (my group) should add more moves to make our dance longer and interesting. The video above shows you my groups dance evaluation movie.
