The Summer Learning journey/New foundation

The Summer Learning Journey for NEXT Foundation from Next Foundation on Vimeo.
Today people from 'NEW foundation and the creators of the Summer Learning Journey came to visit our school (Panmure Bridge School). They came to talk about the Summer Learning Journey and the learning that goes on in our school. We then got to see the video that had been shot in our classroom. After assembly we all headed out to do our prayer/karekia and eat our food. We all had fun and thank you to the people that came from NEW foundation/WFRC...

Christmas In Italy

 Yesterday, LS2 was working on our collaborative challenge. We were split into groups of four (I was working with Zane, Tiava and Viva) and had to work together to create a DLO about how another country celebrates Christmas. We decided to chose to learn about Italy. We found out that Italians go to a Midnight Mass on Christmas Eve and they call Santa Bobba Natale. In Vatican City, one of the traditions there is going to the square at noon on Christmas day to get the Pope's blessing. We all worked collaboratively and used our smart searching skills to find our information.

Year 7 Speeches - My Speech For Sports Leader

Hi my name is Viva,       
I think I would make a great sports leader because I am active, respectful and encouraging. The main reason I chose to be the sports leader for 2018 is because I love talking and sharing exciting news about sports, sports has been my buddy ever since I was a little girl. People said that “whatever sports you try out you will never make it into the finals” but I said to myself that “you'll never know until you try!” So I just ignored everything they had said and carried on playing sports! They all ended up with nothing to do but put people down. That’s why I’m here to tell you that you’ll never know until you try! So please
VOTE for me to be your sports leader for 2018. Thank you for listening and don’t forget that “you’ll never know until you try!”.

Today I have said my speech in front of the whole class, I was nervous when I first said "Hi". I felt like I was going to drop the microphone. At the end of the speech I stopped feeling nervous and sat down with the people that have finished their speech. I was revealed when I was finished saying my speech. But anyways as it says in my speech "you'll never know until you try" I kept saying it over and over again on the way back to class. I found it very interesting that Shakaia (my class mate) was the only one that was in for manaiakalani leader!

Google Games

Today I have found that there was a google game made from scratch. The game includes code blocks. Using the code blocks you can make the rabbit move sideways, forwards and backwards to collect as many carrots as you can. This game is very similar to my games that I played called Moana. Hope you enjoy playing the google and Moana game!...

Technology Reflection

Tech this year has been fun and very interesting. My favorite activity was cooking. I loved making milkshakes, pies and the divine chocolate logs. I would like to thank Mrs Heka, Mrs Apelu, Mrs Ferguson and Mrs Anderson for having us and making sure that we understood what to do... Wish the best of luck!

Summer Learning Journey day 1#


Today I have completed day 1's activity (called The First Settlers). It talks about the first person that had arrived in Aotearoa (New Zealand) and how he got to Aotearoa (New Zealand). Did you know that Kupe the first person to arrive in New Zealand came from Polynesia?  


Today we have worked collaboratively to define the word motivation and how you can motivate someone. We were talking about this because next year our year 7's will be our school leaders and by that we'll need to learn how to help other and encourage them to keep trying instead of telling them the answer. Then we were split into groups of 4-5. We were asked to come up with a play to show the audience what motivation is and to always encourage someone by helping and giving them enough information to work out the answer.
