EXT Paideia seminar

Inline image 4On Tuesday the year 5&6 Extension group had a paideia seminar, It was our 3rd one this year! The topic we had to talk about was "Is being civilise such a good thing". Our Paideia seminar began and Amira was first to speak. I think that I could do better on the next seminar because this seminar was kind of hard because I didn't know when to talk and the topic was kind of hard to me. I only spoke 5 or 6 times but I think that is a good thing some people only talked once or twice. I was really nervous because i thought My answer was going to be wrong but then I remembered that there are no right or wrong answers in the paideia seminar. Luckily I was prepared with a paragraph that I wrote about what civilisation means to me. overall I think that i did good and I think I did better than term one and maybe Just the same as term 2's Paideia seminar.

Task description: This is my reflection of my term 3 Extension Paideia seminar. It has my feelings and has what I did and what I could do better. I think I did really good and I hope I do better next time. 

Alien description

 Task description: This is My alien description presentation and it is all about me describing what the alien looks like. it is also trying to help me use descriptive writing.

Star dome

Have you been to stardome? Well Me and my classmates went to stardome and it was really cheap! We went there because our theme this term is all about space and star dome gave us more information about space. It is a small gallery and has a lot of things that are kid friendly.

But before all of that happened we went onto the park well at least the small park. It was cool because we also got to go on the flying fox. So then after 10 mins on the park we then lined up in our groups and My parent helper was my friend’s mum, her name was Lose. So we went in and it was a cool and small planetarium.

We had 15 mins of exploring the planetarium and it was cool because it had buttons that activated the machines. We were looking everywhere and heaps of the stuff were cool and have had a lot of information. Then after that 15 minutes we went into the space room and then we learned more about space and planets. Then we got handed an iPad and had to answer the questions and try and look for the answer in the planetarium.

So then after our scavenger hunt we had to line up again and then the fun bit happened. We went into the movie room and I got to say it was very cool. While we watched the movie in the dome it was kind of giving me a headache and not just me Mrs Stickland got movie sick.

I learnt that if you try and search for another planet it is gonna be worthless so the best option is just to stay with earth and just clean it up. I also learnt that a dirty snowball is also another name for comet.  It was pretty fun and cheap but the thing I love most was playing on the flying fox and learning with our teacher.

Task description: This is my recount about star dome and This is a late post and it and we actually went to stardome on Thursday last week.\

Term 2 Rubric reflection

I think that my score was good because our whole team got a 5 on our planning presentation. I also I think that my score was good because it had mostly 4’s . Being an actor and a dancer gave me an advantage to get me a higher score for performing. For our discussion/Paideia seminar I think I really improved from term 1. My score was really good and from term 1 I think I have improved more in contributing in the paideia seminar.

My goal is to work hard and push myself to the next level.

Task description: This is my Reflection on my rubric for term 2. I know I haven't really clarified what I did. also sorry I am not aloud to post my score because my teacher said I don't know why.

Paideia seminar Reflection

Have you ever had a paideia seminar? Well the year 5&6 extension group did. We got into groups of two and my partner was Bethan. We had this doc filled with all kinds of perspectives we could choose from. Bethan and I chose 4 and the others just stuck with one perspective. The question we had to answer/ and argue for the paideia seminar was… “Is it important to keep our humanity, emotions, critical thinking, and empathy or doesn’t it matter if we live in a wired world where we are individuals, not a community?
What is the best or worst case scenario of living in a world, where we don’t communicate face to face?”

In our paideia seminar i think I did more talking than what i did in term 1’s seminar. I was really scared but I actually talked a lot.  I was surprised when the people who talked a lot last time didn’t talk a lot this time.  I think that the term 2 paideia seminar was my best one. everybody was talking and if someone didn’t talk we’d always make time for them to talk. I loved it because everybody piggy banked on what someone was saying. I think we all did not want robots to be like a slave or even to rule the WORLD! If we did have them and you had a kid who would look after them? The robot can’t because he can’t get in the water to bathe the baby or even make food.

It was also about the production we performed “ Back in da day” because it is a time travel play and it was about all the technology changing and how they changed. I also loved the paideia seminar because of the Lollies! I think that doing the production boosted my confidence and i think that is why i talked a lot more. I think i could do better next time by listening more and trying to piggy bank on other people's ideas.

planets in the solar system

Task description: this is a picture i made with photos of all the planets in the solar system except for Pluto because people said it is not a true planet. it has the planets in order from the one closer to the sun and further from the sun. if you cannot tell each apart the first one is Mercury then Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune.

Space facts

 Task description: these are my facts about space and yeah. I was trying to do this fast because I did not want to stay in at lunch time. Like I said I rushed and the sentences might be a little short and this task description might also be short.

space Narrative

I’ve been in space for about a week now. Pikachu and I Have been searching for a planet to live on with all the earthlings. Why are we looking for a new planet? Well The plants aren’t growing and the season have been changing everyday, there are huge earthquakes and heaps of the kids are scared. We need a new home ASAP!

After a long search we finally found a planet , we landed and like the scenery.  “Wait what's that… Watch OUT!” Another spaceship was attacking us. They wanted the planet as well. “ what are we gonna do! There's no way we can defeat them” I said. I looked closer and it was nothing that me and Pikachu have seen before, It was an alien with a pig head. It was a Piglien.

Me and Pikachu VS The two alien pig heads A.K.A Pigliens. It was WAR! Luckily we brought Space blasters, We took them out and started shooting the space ship… BOOM! “ Yay we hit it!” I said, a few seconds later another one comes out of nowhere and hits our space ship. “ NO! How are we gonna go back home.. WE'RE STUCK HERE! We quickly shot there spaceship and luckily there were no more left. The big problem was “How are we gonna get back home!”

As we were thinking for several minutes, we thought we saw an asteroid but as it came closer it was actually a NASA satellite. It crashed on the ground and Pikachu and I ran to it and refigured the wiress and It started working. “ Yay… At last!” We hopped in and went back home. “ But how are we gonna get everybody to the planet” Said pikachu “ we might just have to tell the news report people all over the world and say that we need to evacuate earth and move to the new planet called Planet Zycon.

Nasa had a lot of big space ships and getting people in and out actually took 2 years and 2 months it was hard work but it was worth it. Living in our new home we actually had no homes and building some more took a few  more than 2 years.There were no countries everybody was just A Zyconion.

My Road Trip Up North!

all I have been doing this holidays is going on a digital trip. But today I went on a real road trip. We went from Auckland to Oturu Marae in Kaitaia. As we arrived we started waving to our family. Why did we go? we went because it was My nanny Edel's Birthday, And Gosh there were a lot of people I did not know. We unpacked our stuff and it was really easy because we were only staying there for a night. Judah, Trendy and I were getting bored and we then made stuff out of flax ( I will share a photo).  Later on , as a celebration the adults couldn't  resists having a little drink. That little drink turned into a big one. We went to bed at like 11 ( because we wanted to play with the cards) and then went to sleep. it was really funny because there were some people sleep talking and drunk. also I couldn't sleep that well because My uncle kept on snoring loud as!


Task description: This is more like a fun writing but who cares. This is about My weekend I had in Kaitaia. It has all the stuff that we did and the photos.

Bonus Activity: On your blog, post a video or write a description about your week. What have you learned? What did you like about the trip? What didn’t you like? Was there anything that surprised you?

To earn full points for this activity, you must talk about what you learned, what you liked and what you about your great kiwi road trip.
I chose to write a description because I do not know what to do if I were to make a video.
My description of the week:
I have learnt a lot this week thanks to Rachel. I really loved going on a digital road trip with curios kiwi as well. I expressed a lot of feelings on my trip I felt nervous and scared when I was alone and when I was writing from the perspective of the first man to come to New Zealand. The activity that I loved was giving my opinion to which haka was the best. The activity I did not like was the whale rider one, I love the movie but I actually wanted to see the movie and the trailer was not working for me. I loved learning about Peter Jackson because he is really famous and it is cool that someone from New Zealand is really that famous. an interesting fact I learnt was That peter Jackson met the queen and also has his own star in Hollywood.
Task description: This is the last post until Monday ..... I hope. I will be posting my weekend on Monday okay?

WLJ day 7 (last day..yeah) activity 2

Activity 2: After you have finished up in Taupo, it is time to hop back in the car and head for Rotorua – a town where will have the chance for some much needed rest and relaxation. In fact, you will visit the Tarawera Bush Pool – a geothermal hot pool that is located in the middle of a forest. The warm water in the pool comes from underneath the ground. After a few hours in the pool you feel really relaxed.

On your blog, post a picture of yourself doing something relaxing. I find reading really relaxing. Here is a picture of me reading one of my favourite books!
After a long soak in the natural hot pools, it is time to get back home. Your family and friends can’t wait to see you and they can’t wait to hear all about your adventures. Take a moment to think about what you have seen and done over the past week.
What I Think is relaxing is listening to music. I really love music and especially when I know the whole lyrics.
task description: This is the 2nd to last post I am going to be doing for winter learning journey but I will be posting on Monday about the weekend I had because tomorrow I am going up north and maybe the day after that we might go to cape Regina.

WLJ Day 7 ( last day... I think) activity 1

Image result for keep new zealand beautifulActivity 1: While in Taupo, you go for a walk around the lake and you notice pieces of rubbish floating in the water. You also notice that there is rubbish on the footpath. As you know, it is really important to put rubbish in the bin and keep New Zealand clean and beautiful for generations to come.

With that in mind, it is time think about what you can do to keep New Zealand beautiful. Use your imagination and come up with three things that you could do to make your neighbourhood more beautiful. Post your list on your blog ☺:
1st thing: I think that to make a beautiful neighborhood is to pick up all the rubbish that is around there.
2nd thing: I think is to ask for permission to wash the cars and just make it clean. also I think growing some pretty plants in your garden will look pretty cool.
3rd thing: Mowing the lawns what is wrong with that if you just mow the lawns for every body it will make it easier for the other people too.
Task description: this is my list and I think this is the last day of the winter learning journey and thank you to Rachel for setting this u for every body and yeah thanks.

WLJ day 6 bonus activity

Bonus Activity: As part of the Matariki festival, there is a two day Kapa Haka competition. The haka is a traditional war dance that Maori performed before going into battle. The haka is now performed by children/adults in the community and by professional sporting teams, including our national rugby team, the ‘All Blacks.’  The All Blacks have performed various haka over the years. Watch the following three haka videos (1 – 3) and, on your blog, list the haka videos in order from best (#1) to worst (#3). There are no right or wrong answers ☺
At the end of your day at Te Papa, you head to your hotel in the centre of Wellington. You are staying on Cuba Street, one of the coolest streets in the city.
#1st (the best): I think that #3 was the best haka I think it is the best Because you can actually feel the emotion that they are feeling. I think they were feeling overwhelmed and excited so they just needed the haka to express their feelings.

#2 (kind of): I think that number #2 was the 2nd best because I was kind of feeling their emotions but yeah sorry.

#3 (not really): I didn't really like this one but there trying. I feel like they weren't trying hard enough but of course they won't go hard because it is a game and they might lose their energy.
Task description: I am sorry to the all blacks but they are really trying. As Rachel said there are no right or wrong answers it is just your opinion.

WLJ day 6 activity 2

Activity 2:
After visiting Shag Point, you hop back in the van and drive all the way up the east coast of the south island until you reach the town of Picton. You get out of the van and onto the Interislander ferry. It travels back across the Cook Strait to Wellington. Wellington is the capital city of New Zealand and every winter the city hosts a huge Matariki festival to celebrate the Maori New Year. This year part of the festival is being held at Te Papa, a big museum in Wellington.

Read about the Matariki festival at Te Papa.  There are so many different things to see and do at the festival this year. On your blog, tell us about three of the events. You can choose any three events that you wish:
1st pick: The event I love is the matariki fireworks I think it wasn't on the reading but It was really cool in GI. the last few fireworks were so loud.
2nd pick: I have picked the weave jam because it will look really cool when you finish but also you can learn how to do it and maybe in your life you can teach other people and it can be like a domino effect where people teach and teach.
3rd pick: I think I would have to pick the story telling but I wish they could tell it in English. I think it would be cool because it would be relaxing and you get to learn more about the Maori Myths.
Task description: This is day 6 and I think it is going pretty well I really love these activity's. Because I get to learn in the holidays. Thanks to Rachel for setting this up.

WLJ day 6 activity 1

Image result for Maori wakaActivity 1: Let’s imagine that you were on the first waka to arrive at Shag Point. You had never been to New Zealand before and you had no idea what to expect. Write a poem describing how you would have felt when you arrived in New Zealand. Would you have been excited or scared? I would have felt pretty nervous, I reckon:
How long until we get there? I am getting pretty cold from the air. I am feeling pretty nervous just to be honest. Maybe New Zealand is what we would call it. is that the island I think I saw it. A few more paddles and then we would stop. I think the navigators getting tired I think we should swap. we stop at land and jump with joy. My throat is dry can you get me some water boy?
The End.
Task description: To be honest this took me 20-30 minutes because It was hard looking for words that rhymed. This is actually from today not like my other post ( day 5) that was from yesterday.
