Kapa Haka 4

Kapa haka 24/3/17

This week we had fun at kapa haka but i'm still sad that there is no cultural fest this year but oh well. We sang Aotearoa and had fun and I felt happy about kapa haka today.


"Aotearoa"
(feat. Troy Kingi, Ria Hall, Maisey Rika)

Nō tawhiti, nō tata
nō te whenua o te Atua tātou
ahakoa nō hea mai koe
ka whawhai tonu mātou mōu

Ko au tō maunga, tū tonu
ko te moana pari mai koe
ko koe te awa i taku remu, ko tāua anō tāua
nō te one i Kurawaka, hei tiaki i te whenua nei

Aotearoa, he iwi kaha tātou,
he mana tuku iho mai anō
whenua haumako
wairua ora
whāia tō ara
ki te mutunga

Nō tawhiti, nō tata
nō te whenua o te Atua tātou
ahakoa nō hea mai koe
ka whawhai tonu mātou mōu

[RIA HALL:]
He kōrero tō te whenua, heke mai ki a tātou
he toa au mōna e oke nei e
e kore au e hinga
he uri nō te roimata
te toto o ngā tūpuna
e kore au e wehi ē

[TROY KINGI:]
Kia kaha tātou ki tāu i pai ai
Whakatinana, kaua e ngutu noa
Whenua haumako, wairua ora
whāia tō ara ki te mutunga

Nō tawhiti, nō tata
nō te whenua o te Atua tātou
ahakoa nō hea mai koe
ka whawhai tonu mātou mōu

Nō tawhiti, nō tata
nō te whenua o te Atua tātou
ahakoa nō hea mai koe
ka whawhai tonu mātou mōu

[NZ NATIONAL ANTHEM – MAISEY RIKA]

E Ihowa atua
o ngā iwi mātou rā
āta whakarongona
me aroha noa
kia hua ko te pai
kia tau tō atawhai
manaakitia mai
Aotearoa!

Nō tawhiti, nō tata

[English Translation:]

No matter if you’re near or far
We come from the land of God
No matter where you come from
We’ll fight for your freedom

I am the mountain, you are the sea flowing toward me
You are the river that runs through me, I am her she is me
Created from dust and sand, born to lead this land

Where we come from we were made to be strong
Our legacy will carry on
And if a piece of home
Resonates in your soul
Your journey will take you
Where you belong

No matter if you’re near or far
We come from the land of God
No matter where you come from
We’ll fight for your freedom

[RIA HALL:]
The heritage of this land is deep, we are it’s legacy
I am her warrior, I fight for thee, we have the victory
Born from blood and tears, I am stronger than fear

[TROY KINGI:]
We strive to move to our destiny
we practice more than what we preach
and if a piece of home resonates in your soul
your journey will take you where you belong

No matter if you’re near or far
We come from the land of God
No matter where you come from
We’ll fight for your freedom

[NZ NATIONAL ANTHEM – MAISEY RIKA]

God of Nations at thy feet
In the bonds of love we meet
Hear our voices we entreat
God defend our free land!

No matter if you’re near or far
We come from the land of God
No matter where you come from
We’ll fight for your freedom

No matter if you’re near or far
We come from the land of God
No matter where you come from
We’ll fight for your freedom

No matter if you’re near or far
We come from the land of God
No matter where you come from
We’ll fight for your freedom

Buddy Program 4

Buddy Program 4

Today we had buddy program and I did planning for week 10 because of the year 7s on camp we can't do it in week 9. I have done this with Jade and Solani. Here is the plan.

Information about the Year 1 Unit

Introduction (Reading)
To introduce students to the concept of animal habitats, read them a book such as "My Very First Book of Animal Homes," by Eric Carle or the "Animal Homes Lap Book," by Jodene Lynn Smith. Make sure that students understand how different animals live in different habitats and ask them to guess which habitats common animals live in, such as whales or fish (water/ocean), monkeys or birds (rainforest/trees), etc.

Instruction
Explain to students that animals have different homes that they live in. Set out two boxes, one with a photo of an ocean and one with a photo of a rainforest. Then give each student the picture of an animal, all of which live in either the ocean or in the rainforest, and ask them to place their animal into the appropriate box. Possible pictures include those of whales, seals, fish, octopi, sharks, monkeys, toucans, tigers, and jaguars. Students should be able to differentiate between animals that make their homes in the water and those that make their homes in trees and on dry land.

Group members: Brook, Jade and Solani

WALT: I can effectively teach juniors about Games without equipment

Introduction (How will we introduce the book or use the book?)
5minutes
We will tell them the game we are playing and the rules. Our first game will be Simon says and then Duck duck goose and the kid are good they can choose but if they can’t agree then we will play tricky tag.
Main part of the lesson (What questions will we ask the students? What activity will they do?)
15 minutes
Play the games and we will be playing are
  1. Simon says
  2. Duck duck goose
  3. Free choice (Let the kids choose)
  4. Or tricky tag if the kids can’t agree.
Conclusion (How will we end our lesson?)
5 minutes
We will tell them how good they were and maybe let them chose a game if we have time. (let's hope they are good)

C2. Give to your family: Prepare 3 formal three course meals including the menu, cooking and presentation of the meal

C2. Give to your family: Prepare 3 formal three-course meals including the menu, cooking and presentation of the meal.

For the starter, I made garlic bread and the first step was to...
get the butter and crushed garlic and put the butter is the microwave for 20 seconds and we tried crushing it but it was too hard so we put it in for 10 more seconds and then added some crushed garlic and mixed. After we made the garlic butter we cut the bread and put the butter and then cooked it for 5 minutes and then we ate it it was yum.

For the main course, we made Mac and Cheese the first step was to... 
The ingredients we used were Milk, bacon, flour, red onion, butter, macaroni and cheese. The resources we use were- knife, chopping board, frying pan and two pots. the first thing we did was get one of the pans and filled it with water and set it to 7 degrees. Then we chopped the butter and put it in one of the pots and melted it 7 degrees and then cut up the bacon and put it in the frying pan and also cut up the onion in the pan and set it to 5 degrees. 
After we add the milk to the butter and could not stop storing for longer than 20 seconds (my arms got tired). Then we added the macaroni to the hot water and stored the water and kept and eye on everything. After we finished making it we tipped it into a bowl and my mum stored it so it wouldn't go everywhere.
I was first finished (yum)
Then we made dessert and it was divine. We made a 60-second dessert there were 3 steps 1 mix we mixed the milk with the chocolate, 2 Heat we put it in the microwave for 60-seconds and the 3rd step was to eat and it was AMAZING!!!!!!!!

Leadership Article

In writing I have been learning to:
  • use all basic punctuation independently
  • attempt more complex punctuation (eg semicolons, colons, parentheses)


I have been especially focussing on using parentheses and commas. I have highlighted these in green where I have used them as well as other punctuation that I changed because it was used incorrectly. Here is a piece of my writing that shows this.

Brooks Leadership Draft 28/2/17
Head Peer Mediator

Leadership is a skill of being able to motivate people/teams to work towards a goal. The 6 leadership traits are Integrity, motivational, trustworthy, resilient, goal focused and Active thinker. My key leadership role this year is Head Peer Mediator and my role is to make sure that peer mediators show up on time.

Motivational is when you encourage someone to do something. Bill gates is and great role model of this because he motivated his workers and himself to work hard and get the job done. The best thing to have in a motivational person is because if you felt moopy then a person will come and motivate you to feel happy. You can demonstrate by not feeling like it is not fun, it doesn't have to be fun you just have to act happier so kids will come and help you. Being motivational is great but another trait is being Trustworthy.

Trustworthy is great because you need to be a trustworthy to not tell anyone. Sir Edmund Hillary was trustworthy because he said he would climb mt Everest and he did so he kept his word. This is important because if they can't trust you they won't want to come to you for help. I can demonstrate this by keeping the problem to myself and not telling anyone. All the leadership traits are important and one of them is Integrity.



Integrity is a great skill to have of being honest and fair. A leader that has shown this is Bill Gates because he was honest and fair when he was playing with his little sister when he was young. This is very important because you have, to be honest and fair and not take sides even if you know the person is right. I will demonstrate this by not taking sides when I am on duty, and I won't say oh yeah that sounds right so that is right

In order to be a good Head Peer Mediator, I need to demonstrate effective leadership traits and work hard to do these well. So being a leader is not about bossing people around it is about working as a team and not taking sides, and showing all the leadership traits I am going to be a good Head Peer Mediator who is an effective leader.




Games with minimal or no equipment.

Games with minimal or no equipment.


In PE we have been participating in a variety of games that require little or no equipment.
Below is the Matrix which shows our progression in this unit of learning.


Screen Shot 2017-03-12 at 12.32.06 PM.png


The table below shows my understanding of games with minimal or no equipment.
(Fill this table in, in as much detail as possible. )


Examples of Games that need minimal or no equipment.
What equipment would we usually need to play these games.  
Why do we play games with minimal or no equipment?
  • Tricky tag
  • Predator
  • Cat and mouse 
  • Battleships
  • Hunger games
  • None
  • None
  • None
  • Cones
  • None
So if we don't have time to go get gear then just play a game with minimal or no equipment.


My Strengths.  
Some things that I have done well during this unit of learning are Playing any game without fighting because then the game goes faster and everyone is happier.


My Next Steps.

Some things I could improve on when playing games with minimal or no equipment are at least use cone's to do mark outs  Because Then everyone knows the boundaries.

Square numbers to 100 and their matching square roots.

Square numbers to 100 and their matching square roots.


In Maths we have been learning:


Square numbers to 100 and their matching square roots.
This is part of our basic facts knowledge.
It is important to just know these as we can use this knowledge in other areas of maths.


Here is a link to our online modelling book. ( LINK YOUR MODELLING BOOK HERE)


Here are the IXL screenshots that show evidence of my learning.  




My next learning step in Maths is To focuses on the task and not race my friends.
