After reading the text we had to go on a DLO that explains what was the original role of the fa'aluma,what is fa'aluma's role and now why did it changed and Our own opionion if they should stop mocking or keep doing this

Hit The Button

Today Mrs Anderson's math's group played hit the button. We played this game to help us with our times table and to answer faster. The hardest part was to try find the answer and click on it. It was even harder because there was a timer that comes down from one minute.

Maths Strategy Problem

Last week I have made a DLO about using the HTO strategy to help us solve our problems to the times table. I did 30 x 4. I started of by using 30 x 4 that = 120 and then I did 4 x 4 that = 16. Then I putted the answer 120 and 16 together and it made 136

Group B Dance

This was the 3rd week of dance, we also finally got to be back with our partners because they were at kappa haka last week. We just started doing the dance when miss Anderson showed us a video about two people doing these really cool shape robot dance moves. I actually thought it was really cool to see them do this, after watching the video me and Tewai went to practice some of the dance moves from their video and putted them into our own moves. It was really challenging but we also had heaps of fun, my favorite part of the video is when they do the stare case movement. Lyndon and Harlem H accomplished it, I tried to do it with Tewai but we failed.

Group B, music

Today was the second week of dance, my partner was gone to kapa haka  up at the Panmure library. So my buddy today was Lyric. before we did anything else we warmed up to get our muscles ready. After we did this we started of by watching a video from the TV. I learnt that a free flow was moving your body around with your bones, i even learnt that a bound flow was moving your body around using your muscles. But our main focus was about using the shapes and finding which angle we could do to make it. The hardest shape to do was the square shape because when me and partner was sharing it to the other group we got muddled up and had to restart again.

Music, group B

Today group B did warm ups task. Our task linked to stretching, running on the spot's and doing push ups. warm up raises up your heart beat and increases oxygen from your muscles. We had to go in partners, my partner was Tewai and we had to work with a paper, vivid and a device so we could watch a video and find a specific music so we could use it together with our warm up exercise. Later on we had to share our exercise with a group.

Current Events

Today me and Harlem made a DLO about. Ivory in China, Why they stopped selling ivory, and our opinions to what we think would happen next. We had to read five articles and put it on our DLO. My Opinion to this is why are they taking things without permission. They even want to do this because they kill elephants to get ivory, then they make it and sell them to get lots of money.

Chunky challenge "AKE"

Today I made word cloud that shows the word "ake" in it. We first did this on a google presentation so we could fill out all the ake words we know, and some new ake words we don't know. After doing them we started on our simple sentences. We had Simple, compound and complex, from one normal sentence to something more interesting specific.
