Kiwi Can by Christopher


Today  at Kiwi Can our lessen for today was risks we played a game called Hand soccer that had risks we also played a game called bib bob bounce. For Hand soccer the rules were not to hit the ball with your feet and try to get the ball into the goal. To play bib bob bounce you have to make a circle the person in the middle has to point to someone and say bib bob bounce if the person that he pointed to says bang the same time the person in the middle said bounce your safe. I thought it was hard not to wack the ground for hand soccer.

Two Word Sentences


For writing we have been looking at simple, compound and complex sentences. We learnt that simple sentences are mainly two words, which contain a subject and a verb. We had to write down three examples of a simple compound and complex sentence.

By Fraidoon


For writing this week we have been learning about two word sentences. Our task was choose three examples and change them into a compound and complex sentence. I thought that this was a really great task.

Learning to use synonyms



.
This week we have been focusing on Synonyms. A Synonyms a word that has the same meaning as another word. Eg. Big - Large, huge, gigantic. Using Synonyms in our writing can make our sentences more interesting. We used google dictionary to find word definitions and Synonyms then had to check that the new word made sense in the sentence.

By Miki and Viva



Today for writing we were focusing on synonyms. A synonym is a word that means exactly the same as another word for example It was so hot outside. Another word for hot could be boiling. Above shows the DLO Freeman and I have made about Synonyms. It shows you powerful words Freeman and I have used. I learnt that another word for funny is bizarre. It was a bit hard because there were a lot of synonyms for us to chose from.

Year 8 taster at Tamaki College

On Friday our Year 8's spent had a taster day at Tamaki College. They really enjoyed the hands on experience of what a day as a Year 9 student might look like. A huge thank you to Tamaki College for hosting our students. Here are their reflections of their taster day.

Sylis' Reflection:

Today the Y8s went to Tamaki College and stayed there for the day to experience what it was like in college classrooms. We had timetables and we had to be organised. There were some Y9 students guiding us around the college. First we had Maths with Mr Jones. In Maths we played battleships. Then we had Science with Mr Stoddard. In Science we did some experiments with static electricity. Next we had lunch. For lunch we had Subway and it was delicious. At lunch some students got rewarded $5 to go and spend at the tuck shop. Next we had English with Mr Stevenson. We were finding visual images to make connections with words that we had to memorise. The last thing that we did was PE with Mr Moyes. We played turbo touch. It was a really fun day and a good way to experience what it was like to be a Y9 student. Thank you Tamaki College for organising the fun day that we had.


Te Wai's Reflection:

Today the year 8’s went to Tamaki College to learn about what it is like at college. Before we started we did our usual tech classes and had our first session with Mr Grundy about making stained glass. After tech we had our morning tea and after that we went to maths with Mr Jones. We played battleships, it was fun. Then we went to science with Mr Stoddard and learnt about static electricity and how negative and positive charges can attract and detract. When there are two opposite charges they attract and when there are two of the same charge they try and get away from each other we had an example of this when Lyndon was touching static electricity his hair was starting to stick up. When that was finished we had Subway for lunch which was delicious. After lunch we went to English with Mr Stevenson where we had to memorise 10 words and get the corresponding pictures and finally we went to PE Mr Moyes and we played turbo touch. Thank you Tamaki Collage for a great day of learning and fun.

CJ's Reflection:

On Friday all the year 8's went to Tamaki College for the day. First we went to hard materials for Tech with Mr Grundy. We are going to make our own class design we had to plan what our design would look like. It could be a mirror or a flower, it can be any thing we want it to be. At 10:50 we walked over to the library to have our morning tea in the library. There were two teachers waiting for us. Mr Dunn and Mr Jones. Mr Jones was the maths teacher. Mr Dunn is the Deputy Principal. After we head off to Mr Jones' classroom for maths. We played a game of battleships. He shared a google draw with us that had a grid with five ships on it and we had to randomly put them anywhere. At 12:00 we went to science. We were learning about static electricity. An example is if you try to put left and right magnets together they will stick, but if you but a left and left magnet together they will try to get as far away as possible from each other. After that we had lunch back at the library, then we had English with Ms Stevenson. In English we had to look at some words carefully and memorise them. We then had to write them down on a document and find images of the words. Our last class was PE. We played a game of turbo touch. My team scored 3, the red team scored 5 and the no bibs score 2. I really had a fun day I would like to thank Tamaki College for welcoming us.

Eric's Reflection:

Today the year 8's, stayed at Tamaki College for an experience day. First we played battle ships in Maths with Mr Jones, that was really fun. Then we went to Science with Mr Stoddard and Mr Singh, they taught us about static energy and we did three experiments. They were really awesome. We then had lunch. I thought that it was really nice that the staff at Tamaki College bought us subway. After lunch we had English with Mr Stevenson, we did a fun activity. We had to find visual images, of the words that we had to remember. Then we went to PE with Mr Moyes, we played turbo touch. That was a really awesome game. I would like to thank the staff at Tamaki College for looking after us.

AJ's Reflection:

Today the year eights from Panmure Bridge School stayed at Tamaki College for a day to experience what it would be like if we decide to go there. First we had technology as normal. We were doing stained glass windows with Mr Grundy. After that we had morning tea. Tamaki College was really kind and provided morning tea and lunch for us. Our first class was Maths and our teacher was Mr Jones. We played a game called Battleships. After that we headed off to Science where we did some cool experiments using static electricity. Our teachers were Mr Stoddard and Mr Singh. Then it was lunch time. We had Subway for lunch. Four of our students who showed the Tamaki College values got a $5 dollar tuck shop voucher. I got a voucher for showing Responsibility. Our next class was English and our teacher was Mr Stevenson. Their we had to look at some words carefully and memorise them. We then had to write them down on a document and find images of the words. Our last class was P.E. Our teacher was Mr Moyes. We played a game of Turbo Touch. I had a really fun day and I would like to give a really big thank you to everyone who looked after us at our time there.

Nazella's Reflection:

Today the year 8's went to Tamaki College to experience what it was like to be a year 9. We followed a normal schedule for year 9's. We first went to Maths with Mr Jones. He taught us about coordinates. To learn about coordinates we played Battleships. We had to ask Mr Jones where his ships were on the grid. After maths, we went to science with Mr Stoddard, where we learned about static energy. We had a few experiments. Our first experiment was rubbing a plastic tube on fabric, then we put it near water. We saw that the water was trying to stick to the plastic tube. After science we had lunch. We had subway, apples, cookies and water. Then we went to English with Mr Stevenson. We were finding visual images of 10 words to make connections with the words. We then went to P.E with Mr Moyes. We played a game called 'Turbo Touch'. This was very fun. We had to get the ball into the rectangle without being touched by the opposing team, or stepping into the rectangle. I had never played this game so it was extremely exciting. Thank you to Tamaki College for welcoming us into your school, and thank you to the Tamaki College teachers for providing such a fun and educational day. 


Zahra's Reflection:

Today the year 8's went to Tamaki College to experience secondary school. We had our own year 9 timetable with classes on them. This was a great experience. In science with Mr Stoddard and Mr Singh, we were learning about static energy/electricity. Static electricity is a contrast of electric charges inside or on the surface of a material. In our math classes we had Mr Jones and we played a game of battle ships and learnt about coordinate grids. In our English class with Mr Stevenson, we were finding visual images to make connections with new vocabulary. In our PE class we were playing turbo touch with Mr Moyes. 


A big thank you to Tamaki College for hosting us. We all had a fun time and a great day of learning.



Daniel's Reflection:

On Friday, the year eights went to Tamaki College for the whole day to experience what it is like at a college. We had a couple of classes that would be like the classes we would have next year, in Year 9. After interval we had maths and science, and after lunch we had English and PE. Maths was run by Mr Jones, Science was run by Mr Stoddard, English was run by Mr Stevenson and PE was run by Mr Moyes. In Maths we played a game called battleships which is a game where you have to sink all of your opponents ships using co-ordinates. During our time in Science we did some experiments with electricity like making water bend by using a piece of rubber, that was weird how we made the water move in that way. After lunch we went to English where we had to memorize ten words and get some visual images for them. We ended our day with PE where we played a really fun game called turbo touch, which is kind of like touch, but it has different rules and a different setup. We all had an amazing and great time. A big thanks to Tamaki College for providing food (Which was yum!) and transport for us. It was a great day of learning that we all enjoyed.

Calvin's Reflection:

Today the Year 8's went to tech like we always do, then at 10:50 the year 7 and the teachers went back to school and we stayed Tamaki College to experience what college feels like. We had a lot of fun with the teachers there. My favourite activities were PE and Science because in PE we could cooperate and work as a team, and in science the teacher showed us really cool things about static electricity like how to bend water with rubber. Thank you to all the people that made us welcome at Tamaki College.


Mishaan's Reflection:

A big thank you to Tamaki College for providing transport, food and a fun day of learning.


Oh Hsen's Reflection:


The Year 8's had an experience of what it would be like at Tamaki College, if we enrolled. The first class we went to was maths, we played battleships with Mr Jones. I really enjoyed playing that game. Some people got all of their ships sunk. Some people like Eric didn't get a single one sunk. The next class we went to was Science. We were experimenting with static electricity. Our teacher was Mr Stoddard. We managed to bend water by rubbing a rod with wool.  We then had lunch, for lunch we had subway (it was delicious) and a bottle of water. The most behaved students were rewarded a 5 dollar voucher for the tuck shop. After lunch we went to English class with Mr Stevenson. We had to memorise ten words that were displayed on the screen. We also had to include pictures to go with the words. At the end of the day we had P.E. We played a game called Turbo Touch. Our P.E instructor was Mr Moyes. It was a new fun game to all of us. We all had an amazing day at Tamaki College. We enjoyed learning a bunch of cool things and we would like to say a massive thank you for letting us experience a day at Tamaki College.

Understanding Possession by Tiava


For writing I focused on possession. Possession means when something belongs to someone. E.G The hairdressers salon. For possession writing I learned what it means when you put the punctuation mark somewhere in the word. I found this a little difficult because I got confused some of the times.

Food Tech at Tamaki College by Savelina


At tech my class had a new rotation and I went to cooking tech my teacher was Mrs Heka. For our first class we made a Oreo  milkshake. This was really fun because we got to mix ingredients around and work as a team to make the milkshake. In my group my partners were Shakaia and Sky they really helped me to get this progress done.

Suffrage Sketchnote by Javeylor and Zahra



In reading this week, we had to define words that connect with the suffrage movement. We also had to answer what we know about the suffrage movement.  Zahra and Javeylor have worked together to complete this DLO. We talked about the questions and also added an image each.

Why it's great to be me by Mishaan


In my class we have a new subject for this year which is called DARE it is all about keeping ourselves self also finding out more about ourselves. This task was fun because we had to get into a group of four and log into our Tagul account this is a website that creates a word cloud and it is very awesome to use. In my group of four we had to type the ABC on a Tagul and type words to answer the question why it's great to be me. For example for the letter A we put down the word active because we are young a very active. Why is it great to be me ? it's great to be me because I am a True friend I am hard working when I'm with my friends I am Brave, I am really Active I like play Netball to get Active and Run around the playground.

How Maui slowed the Sun - Myths and Legends by Hajera




Our focus this week was myths and legends. Today we have been creating a cartoon image of how Maui (Maori God) slowed down the sun using his hook.  Our task was to create an image showing how Maui slowed down the sun with the help of his brothers.  My partner Miki and I collaborated together to complete the task given to us by our teacher.

Exploring Careers by Shakaia

 

 Yesterday I started a DLO about what I want to do in the future. When I grow up I might choose to be a dancer. Why? Because when I was about 5 years old I loved dancing. In this half detailed DLO I have put in the opportunity you will have getting a job as a dancer and more. This was really easy to complete but it was semi hard as well. One tip I would have to tell you is make sure you turn up with the right gear at all times. But dancing is not my favourite. Yeah. It is actually painting. I am not a very good artist and have no idea on what to do but I enjoy it a lot. This is my so called future. Hopefully it all goes well.

Why it's great to be me - by Magenta


Our focus for today was when I got to do a  word cloud with my group to add some words to our word cloud to explain why it is great to be me. What I fine great about myself is that I am always cheerful and that I have dreams when I grow up. The people I have been working with our Viva,Jorja and Nazella. The thing I have find fun about this activity is that I have learned more things about me.

Difference between 'A' and 'An' by Viva



Today we were learning when to use 'A' and when to use 'An' before a word. If a word begins with a vowel which is A-E-I-O-U or silent 'H' (Eg; Hour or Honor), we use 'an'. We use  the letter 'A' for all other words except for the letters in the vowels. The photo shows the sentences we wrote to practice using the letter 'A' and the word 'An'.
