WALT: Use appropriate scales, devices and metric units

This task is all about Measurements, in the slide show it shows lots of things you can measure something with or on, like rulers, scales, thermometer, measuring tapes, and more....this slideshow also shows what we could use to describe what we measure, e.g: M = Meters, Kg = Kilograms, G = Grams, Mm = Millimetre, and more. There is a video at the end of me measuring 3 things *its for my create task*. Also, make sure you go check out my classes blogs to see what they measured and to see what they've done!, Thank you!!

Rona and the Moon

This task was meant for us to post/do last week, I was a bit delayed on posting it, cause I literally had no idea what to write for my task description.
This task is like the other task we did, but is based on another story "Rona and the Moon", if you remember the other task we did was about the  Myth "Te Ika A Maui or Maui and the Great big fish" This story is about a girl who went to get some things for her familys hangi, she then tripped and blamed it on the moon, Marama the moon heard her complaints and got sick of it, so Marama the moon grabbed Rona and kept her, Marama the moon then took good care of Rona, Marama the moon asked Rona if she would like to go back to earth, Rona refused, so from on, Rona lived in the moon, and left a figure of her.

The Great Fish Of Maui

Walt: Make connections across a range of texts

This slideshow is based on the Legend of "Maui and the great fish" when I first heard, I think I was a year 2, anyways when I first heard the story, I found it very interesting, during the years I ended up forgetting about the story, and I when I heard it this year, I was like..."Wait I've heard this before" and the more I recognized it the more I was interested.
BTW *By the Way* go check out my literacy classes blog posts:)

Year 7 step up programme

When the year 8's went to camp it was REALLY fun because the year 7's and some of the year 8's got to stay back and do fun stuff and be leaders at the same time, I found every activity FUN!!, to be VERY honest, I think we should've done cooking but then I think we shouldn't do cooking, because cooking can be a lot of mess and cleaning up at the end would take up lots of our time. Out of all activities I didn't find anything boring, but I think we should've had more time doing Jump Jam, than just doing it for at least....20 minuets. The activities we should really keep for next year is playing sports outside like Soccer, Netball, and Hockey, also I definitely think we should keep 'Minuet to win it', besides everything else, it was a VERY FUN!!!!!!! week.


Last week from Wednesday to Friday, the year 8's went to camp, while the year 7's had 3 days of stepping up as a leader. On Wednesday *the first day* we talked about what we were doing for the week and also went into our teams. When we got into our teams, we had to go and come up with a Chant and a team name, my group had 3 options of what name to choose, it was either Scholar Material, The Bangers, or Strikers, we all had a vote, no one chose Scholar Material, and only 1 person chose "The Bangers" but everyone chose "Strikers" anyways after that we made up a chant and A LITTLE BIT of moves to add in it. 
During the 3 days I had 2 main highlights.
My first highlight was playing soccer on the first day, I loved playing soccer because the team that we were versing had lots of good players, and we/I found it more challenging and found. 

My second and last highlight of the 3 days was playing 'Sing it to win it' on the last day in the morning block, I liked playing it because we easily communicated with each other, if you don't know how to play it this➡️➡️➡️ The teachers or someone had to shout a category, and the people playing has to quickly come up with a song that includes that category before it's your turn, then you keep coming up with songs till you're the winner, if you don't come up with a song before its your turn then.......your OUT of the game.

the whole week was really fun, I also can't wait till year 8 camp next year because it sounded REALLY fun, go check out some of the year 8 blogs to see what they're highlight was OR to see what we did.
