First we got spit in to groups (There were 5 groups) . We were given a piece of paper that showed all 5 activities we were going to do and also the points. I learnt how to throw a Shot Put which is to stand side on , dirty fingers , clean palm , dirty neck , chin , knee, toe all in a row and Low to high watch it fly. I was a bit struggling on activity 2 (Hoop Throw) because I had to use the discuss technique which I didn't know that much. My favorite activity was the sprints which I did 6 runs in 1 minute, but I think for next time I should do more.

Materials Needed.
High Density Foam , Scissors , Sticky Tape , Tin Cane , Wool ,  Needle and Thread , Plastic Container , White Plastic Bag.


  1. First cut the foam into a ball shape. (It is easier if you edge in from the corners which will make your way to the centre).

  1. Secondly after cutting the foam into a ball shape you leave the foam and grab the plastic container and wrap the wool around it and it should be able to fall off from the container.

  1. After that you grab your wool and width it from the inside palm of your hand to the to the inside of you elbow. You will need 8 strings for the 4 sections.
  2. Soon you grab the wool you tied around the tin and the hole in your wool you wrapped around the tin you grab it the 8 stings you did you slide it through the hole until it gets to the middle.

  1. After that you wrap some wool around the hole into a knot.

  1. After wrapping some wool around the hole you put your hand on the wool (leave some wool on top of your hands) and cut it.

  1. (you will have to have a partner for this step) After that you have to braid you pom pom and knot it at the top.

  1. Soon you get your foam that you cut and make a little hole.

  1. After that you get the knot and make it go though the little hole.

  1. The last step is you grab you poi ball and go over the top of your white plastic bag and also grab some of your wool around the bottom of the poi ball and for double security put sticky tape around it and there you have made your Poi.

L.I to write a procedural text.

After that we got into groups and had to plan a procedural text. Our must do was to write a real procedural text which I have done above.

Korean Method


L.I To investigate the ''Korean'' Method of multiplication.

All Mr Ogilvie groups had to choose either the Algorithm Method , Korean Method and the Japanese to use to show people how to use it. My group Wakatipu did the Korean Method.

I think for next time I should show 2 methods all together just to see if I get the same answer.

We had to this 3 times. After that we had to write down the number of pasle beat we got and times it by 3. After timing it by 3 we had to write down all three total and add it up. In our challenges we also had to explain in 25 words why your heart rate might be different to the heart rate of an athlete. We also had to make a Info graphic on Canva on what the four walls of Hauora stand for and also add images as well.
