Technology !!

WALT: Reflect on what we are doing in Technology . 

Today we are back at technology and doing our final design. My new final design is a pig with clouds as my wings. I wanted to do a cow as my final design because I already done it , but I changed my mind and do a pig instead . I think next time i should be more creative and do a different design. Now I am up to the cutting bit and next week I might be able to paint my design .

President Trump 2k17

 WALT:Write our opinion about the new President.

 This is my opinion about the new President (Donald Trump ) I always used to think that Donald Trump is the bad guy but now I realised that all along it was Hillary Clinton. Because She mad a war between America and Vietnam. I actually changed my mind about Donald Trump because he may been a bad guy in the past but everyone can change their bad ways. I heard that Donald Trump is gonna make America a better place to live and that might be true. So I wonder if those things are true. ?? Thank you for listening , Please leave a comment.

How To Be More Resilient.

Learning how to be resilient can help us cope with difficult or stressful situations.

WALT: refelct on what we read in NZ Herald.

Resilience is about being able to cope and adapt to stressful situations . Some poeple seem naturally adepts at "Rolling with the punches " although others can really struggle in times of stress and change that are thrust apon them. Leaving how to boost our reslience equips us to  better rides the invential waves of advertisy that life throws at us. Taking actions even when everything seems to hard. Just finding the right thing to do and then taking actions is powerful. It might not be the thing that solves the whole problem (because such an opition is unlikely to exist) but generating positive energy through taking actions -even imperfect actions- so a sense of momentum blinds and the feels of stuckness dissipates.

What are my goals for next time??
My goals for next time is to write more on what I think on how to be more resilience.
Next goals are to write down what my opinons are about resilience.

My challenges ??
My challenges is that I couldn't really understand where this was coming from but at the end I realized what it was .

Team Buildings

WALT: Reflect on what we did for Team Buildings

On Monday the year 7&8’s did team building outside on the field. We did some camp activities together before the year 7&8’s were off to camp the next day. The first game we did was that everyone had to get into their 4 groups. We first had to get into partners of 2 then had to form a circle. One buddy had to stand in the front then the other partner had to kneel down behind their partner.

EOTC Week !!

WALT: Reflect on what we did in EOTC.

This is my presentation that I worked with Nita. The whole of last week the year 4 5 & 6 had E.O.T.C while the year 7&8's were
at camp. Although some year 7&8's didn't go so they stayed behind and 
went E.O.T.C as well. E.O.T.C stands for Education Outside The Classroom. E.O.T.C 
is extremely fun and it's a good time to get to know others and getting new friends and 
knowing more about the people around you. My favorite part of E.O.T.C was when we watched 
the movie Secret Life Of Pets. It's my favorite part of E.O.T.C because I get
to spend more time with my friends and because I was really looking forward to watching 
Secret Life Of Pets. In most parts of the movie I laughed because Snowball is so cute and funny
because he looks so cute and then turns angry. Snowball is my favorite character because he's cute, funny, intelligent in his own ways, confident and many more reasons why. The reason why I broke up the days was because I wanted it to be in order for what I did and Instead of writing reflections for each day and posting it up I decided to write a reflection for each day on a presentation and blog it up after I finish.

Today the article I chose to read was from the section Technology and it’s about scientists diving inside a weird looking Mars funnel for the first time. It was 2009 when Joseph Levy began poring over images from the surface of the Martian planet. He was fascinated by what he found. There,in high resolution photographs became back to earth by the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter was what Dr Levy describes as the "bullseye". He was looking deep into the eyes of two craters - known as the Hellas depression and the Galaxias Fossae depression. Others had looked before but nobody saw what he saw. Last week , Dr Levy and a team of researchers from the University of Texas at Austin , went deep inside the craters for the first time. That if life ever existed.

Is Sports Sexist ??

Is Sports Sexist ??

In rugby the captain of the all blacks team is Kieran Read. Kieran read is 31 years old and is the captain of all blacks. The all blacks team’s New Zealand’s national rugby union. The captain of the  black Ferns is Fiao’o Fa’amausili and now she is a police officer.

The most popular sport in my family is Netball, well rugby and netball because in my dad’s  side it is rugby and on my mums side it is netball.  Rugby is a popular sport in my dad’s family because they have been playing it since they were little. On my mum’s side it is netball because they have been playing it since they were teenagers. I enjoy both sports but i am mainly into netball. My dad is famous for playing rugby in my family because he plays for a club and my mum used to be famous for playing rugby in my family but she stopped playing. We watch these sports on tv.

Sexism means when someone or a group is stereotyping and typically against female.

I am not to sure if there is any sports that are sexist to men only to women because most sports that men play aren’t really sexist.

There are sports in the world but some sports are sexist to women. Football is a sexist towards females because many females have  been sexually harassed in football. In netball it says that netball must be the world’s most sexist sport because it says that men only go there to see the woman and not learn new skills and all that. There is also sexist in tennis as well and a lot of people have said that sexism in tennis needs to stop . It says that rugby is a sexist sport because they get touched but women or males.

I don’t really think that there is any sexist sports for men because they get touched by men and that is normal for them but when it comes to woman it is a whole different story.

Why do movies need ratings ???

Why do movies need ratings??

Movies have ratings because the people that made the movies want to know how many people like and dislike their movie. It is so what they need to work on next time. Another rating is when they have ratings for what little kids and older people should watch but little kids just watch inappropriate movies anyways. The reason why movies have ratings is because they have violence and inappropriate scenes that is bad for little kids.

I think bad language is bad because it is a bad influence to little kids. If little kids find out about bad language they will grow up swearing and not going anywhere with their life if they swear all the time. In some movies they have bad language that makes the kids interested cause of the bad language.

I think teachers should punish kids for swearing because swearing isn’t a good thing. Swearing is bad and it won’t take you anywhere in life , it will get you into trouble in school and swearing is a thing that won’t take you anywhere except staying at home with nothing when you are older. In movies they have bad scene well it is mainly swearing which is bad for kids that is watching movies that have swearing in it.

There is one person that I know that has watch inappropriate movie was my friend Nita, she has watch a movie but without sexually scences. She said there was lots of swearing and it wasn’t good.

I kinda don’t swear but I only swear sometimes but not all the time.

WALT: Reflect on an article that we read involving movies.

2016 Manaiakalani

2016 Manaiakalani

Today Tamaki Primary went to Sylvia Park for the 2016 Manaiakalani. First we went to our buddy class so we can partner up with them and reflect on the expectations when we go to Sylvia Park. After partenering up we had to have an early morning tea. Then after morning tea we went into Room 2 and got our buddies and went over the expectations again. Then we went into the bus on the way to Sylvia Park. While we were watching the film's me and my buddies favorite movie was Room 10 's movie Making  Choices, I like how they showed what is bad and what was good. My other favorite movie was Room 6 's Zumba, they did it well also they never gave up, even thought it looked like they wanted to they never did. The thing that they did well was working together. Even though they messed up some bits they still did well. The thing that I found challenging was that my buddy kept on interupting me when I tried to watch the movie but it was alright at the same time.

Here are some pictures.

Thanks for listening and reading !!!
