Kiwi Can

This week for Kiwi Can we had new Kiwi Can leaders. There names were Mrs Piho and Mr Latu. This week for Kiwi can our big focus was called Re silence. Re silence mean trying your best and never giving up. This Wednesday we played games that would be challenging for people. Our first game we played was milimili. In the game Mr Latu had to be in the middle and when he points at someone saying the word we have to do the actions and make the sound. One of the sounds was rah h for Tiger. The next thing we did was talking all about challenging and also giving examples of you doing it. Eventually we played a hula hoop game. We had to challenge our other class LS1 A. In the game we had to do it individual but working together as a whole team. Each cone represented different type of point. 1st cone was 10 points, 2nd cone was 20 points, and the last cone was 50 points. Mr Ogilivie was the only one to get 50 points but the rest of us got only 20 and 10. I got 10 points because it was easier for me to throw. If the hula hoop rebounds and goes over the cone is still counts. Finally we play General Knowledge Questions for short we called it GKQ. Alex was in the middle that meant that he was the master and he goes around challenging others for questions. If the master got beaten by the person then that person that bate the master is the new master.

Once the sea animals catch anything they will eat it knowing that it hasn't been touched by us. For example the turtles will dive into it munching rubbish all up making their throats  get blocked by the amount of rubbish we've littered.
Do you have a solution to the problem?
We have rubbish everywhere out in public that people can use. Even though there's no bins around then hold it either then throwing it around.

Point of View Charts




My Problem
Dear Teacher,
I am sick of people being late and then missing out on their work. Why?maybe they live far away or maybe there is dozen of different excuses for being late. I decided to start school at 10:00 am. For no better reason either then just wasting maximum of time to learn. Students can be late because they slept it in. For more advice you should tell your parents to set you an alarm. I think that being late is such a slack for people who are being so lazy not attending to school everyday 100%.


Starting school at 10:00 am

That shows students that it is not fair for people that comes in early needing to tell others what they need to do. So instead of students trying to wake up early and lives far away e.g we should be starting school at around 10:00 am.Students want more time to have breakfast and sleep. During that time students should have a little play before starting to learn new/old things. Parents that don't go work have more time to nap before driving their kids to school.  

LI: What is a point of view.
This week for writing we are focusing on point of views. A point of view is telling the person what is the point of the story you/I read. I learnt this by reading 3 articles about trying to find the point of view and backing up some facts and opinions. I also learnt what the point of view would be if you read a story. I learnt this by working in groups and filling in a sheet of paper. It helped me by filling the piece of paper and trying to find the back ups of the fact from opinion. The task was to write about a topic including 2 pieces of paragraphs in it. Once you are finish we had to make sure that the other members in our group disagreed or agreed on out topic.

Kiwisport



LI: To jump and land like motorbike.
This week for kiwi sport we are still focusing on run,jump,throw. Today I learnt how to jump using techniques. I learnt it by practising over and over again like repetition. Our first game we played was octopus-warm up game. The taggers were Myself and Julian. It was really good to play for a warm up game/fitness. Our next warm up we played was the techniques for jumping. We kept on practising as I already said. bent knees,swing arms, and shoulder with the part. Our final game was rock paper scissors. Unfortunately I dont have a image of it but I can tell you how to play it. The game was to have spots lying in a oval. You will need to get into 2 groups. You also need to use the jumping techniques when you jump. Once you get to the middle of the oval you need to play rock paper scissor with the other team member. Whoever wins gets to keep on going while the other team member joins in.

It helped me by figuring out what my plan should've been like. As you might no see clearly that I have written down a schedule of what im gonna be doing for the next 2 weeks about my 3D Cube shape.


Kiwi Can Post

LI: To control our feelings when others are with you.
This week for kiwi can our theme is still focusing on resilience. Resilience means bouncing back and coping with other challenges. Our first energiser we played was called defender. The game was to use one of your hands to be a defender. So you had to get into groups and then someone has to have the ball in their hand. The person with the tennis ball has to try and get it between there legs. If they get it between there legs that person is out. Our next energiser was questions. Mr Malu had to ask questions and then we had to write the answers down. After writing down the answers we then had to get 2 students from each group to present the answer. Finally the last game was sit doge ball. Mr malu had to count us off and then we had to form a big circle. Mr Malu had to call out a group number then, that group number had to run in the middle and the people in the circle has to try and throw the ball to the group in the middle.  

Main Idea Summary

Text title: The Island
Author:
I think the main idea of this text is That Jordan encourages Lincoln about how to get what you want not what you need,
One example of a supporting detail is Jordan tells him it is a little bit part of kindness and charms.
Another example of a supporting detail is that a voice said remember to be pleasant and polite when entering our Island.
It is clear that the main idea is That Jordan encourages Lincoln about how to get what you want not what you need


because Jordan tells him it is a little bit part of kindness and charms. A voice had spoken saying remember to be pleasant and polite when entering our Island.


LI:To Separate fact from opinion. This week we are still focusing on Fact or Opinion. Fact means something that is true and has been proofed and Opinion is something that we feel and think. I learnt how to give the main idea while watching videos. I learnt this by watching short segments and writing the forms of fact from opinion. It helped me by watching the video 2-3 times trying to memorise some facts and opinion listing them down. Our task was to watch videos and then after doing that we had to list down some facts and opinions. After doing that we had to fill in the main idea summary and write down more things about it.
