Fia Fia term 1

Fia Fia? what is Fia Fia? well fia fia is a cultural festival that pt England school has every second year. fia fia is a great way to boost other peoples confidence. it is also a great way to represent your culture and your style of dancing. Theres a variety of groups to perform in, and you can choose which one you want to be in. you can chose 1-3 groups.

On Thursday last term, we held our annual fia fia. I was in the kapa haka group, and we performed first. we performed 4 items. on thursday it was also the last day of the term and it was a great way to end term 1 2018. everybodys performance was amazing but i couldn't stay for the whole entire thing, because it was raining.  but fortunately i could watch it from home on the live stream that they were streaming from the night. we held our fia fia on our school grounds, we put the stage on the field. overall I personally loved fia fia night because i got to see all the other groups perform.

3D clay shapes


yesterday room 4 made 3D shapes out of clay. the ingredients we used was clay, water, a wooden knife and a plastic ruler to get the faces smooth. Me and my partner (Amelia) made a 3D hexagon, we wanted to make a complex shape so we chose a hexagon. everybody else made a cube and a 3D circle. the reason why we were making the shapes were because our school is running out of maths equipment and we thought it would be fun to make some of the 3D shapes. Questions for the little kids: how many faces does this shape have? dow you know what shape this is? how many vertices and edges does this shape have? This hexagonal prism and it has 8 faces 18 edges and 12 vertices.

In extension today we are looking at functions and for loops in code, today I am going to be explaining what a function and for loop. for example a function is a piece of code that you can easily call over and over again. it includes the specific steps performed in the function. A loop is a repetitive action or command typically created with programming loops, or runs a block of code over and over for a set number times.also a for loop called also be used in dance moves like the whip and nae nae every time you repeat the dance move it is called a for loop.
