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.

functions and for loops in code

Image result for for loopImage result for function











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.

How to save money

How to save Money: By Naomi penu

DO you know how to save money? Why is money so important to us? Do you want to learn how to save money? If so, you’ve come to the right place.

Firstly, you can start by using less power and less water usage. By using less power and water it saves you from paying a lot of money for the bills. This means you can make a limit of how long you can go on social media or how long you have a shower.

You can also save money by sticking to a budget.  For example you can have a limit on what you want to buy and how much you want to spend. Also sticking to a budget means you can’t spend over the amount you put down, Because you put it there for a reason. But don’t spend it on things you don’t need only spend it on the things you need.

Lastly you can get a savings account. You can have one spending account and one savings account by having a savings account you can put money in, BUT DON’T TAKE IT OUT! You can spend it but only for a good reason.

These are my points on how to save money and if you follow these steps then you might be able to save money. If these points helped you i would be really happy but if they don’t…. I’m just a kid!

task description: this task is an explanation writing task. we had to explain to the reader what we were going to do and also use some good connectives as well. this task was also about how to save money and it was really hard, for a person who usually spends all there allowance.

My visual Mihi



This is my visual mihi. what is a visual mihi? well a visual mihi is what you like and where you come from. A mihi is just the same thing but you say it a visual mihi is where you can see/draw your mihi.  My first one is my culture and my culture is Tongan and I didn't  do all of them because I have heaps. the second one is my family and I put them there because they are very special to me. the third one is about god and jesus because I believe in god so of course I would put the cross in and gods name. the fourth one, mostly everyone loves it.... FOOD! I put it there cause without it I wouldn't be living right now. but overall all of the things I put on represents me and what I believe in.

Me , Hinerangi and Bethan's swift playground work


Bethan’s review of commands and functions:
Commands and functions are very important things in code that lets start with commands. Commands are the instructions we use to control anything we want on the computer, ipad, or even your mobile phone but in our case we were using a little character called Byte. To control Byte we had to make him follow our commands when we put in more than one we made a sequence. A sequence is a group of commands put together to make a set of instructions. Functions are a group of commands put together to make one command so before we we had turn right we only had turnleft so that was when we added them together three times and created turnright.

Naomi’s review on the commands and functions:
My experience on swift playground was very easy on commands. But when we pasted commands we went to functions but I know functions are supposed to be helpful but it was kind of tricky. The only reason why it was tricky was because we were kind of used to commands and the function just messed up the code so we had to find a code that included the functions and our commands.But overall it was fun and had a lot of thinking involved.

Hinerangi’s review on code commands and functions:
These type of codings especially commands and functions was very hard but at the same time it was a bit easy. The commands and functions on swift playground can be a bit hard but it is very important that you understand it which is what myself and my teammates need to improve on. Command means a type of instruction which tells specifically what a computer, tablet and a phone needs to do. Overall it was awesome and fun especially having to work as a team / group, as well as having everyone communicating in these types of code.

first post for 2018

Image resultwelcome to 2018 and to start off the great year I learnt a lot in Maths and literacy. I have 6 lovely teachers in our team. in literacy we learnt the the real meaning of the treaty of Waitangi. but also we read a story called the wave and we had to answer a variety of questions but I did not quite finish it. In maths we learnt squared roots and    and we did a problem solving thing that evolved us using four 4's and using equations to get the numbers 1-20. if you do not know what I am talking about I am so sorry it is because i thought it was something fun to share But I couldn't explain it properly.    That is some of the stuff I learnt this week.


------------------------------------------------------------

Task description:
this is all about the start of the year and what I have learnt so far. it has been a great start of the year and this is my first post for 2018. I learnt a whole lot and I think that I am getting the hang of being in the intermediate block.
