Summer Learning Journey - Week 2 - Day 4 - Activity 3


What I can see is a lady posing. Her posing looks like she's leaning on the water. I can see building behind her. I can also see trees near a bridge. I can see beautiful streaming water crashing into each other. I can see boats on the water. The image of this place looks very ancient. It looks like I can see people from my point of view on the deck. It may not be people, but it looks like there is people around there. This photo looks like the lady wanted to take a photo as if she was doing the Leaning Tower of Pisa, but on the water. She looks like she took a holiday to this place. Yes I do take selfies whenever I go to places like: Rotorua, Taupo, Wellington, Waikato, and Tauranga. I think that this lady stop to take this photo, because she wanted to see what it would look like when she took this image of her.

This year Panmure Bridge School is lucky enough to participate in the Summer Learning Journey from 2018-2019. This is an opportunity for the Manaiakalani cluster school to join.

I chose to take a boat cruise, because I get to relax and see the beautiful view, but at the same time I will have a chance to take an amazing photo shot of me at Milford Sound. This means that the view will look great.

Would you try to do it?
Yes, because not only have I waved an ika, but I tried something experiencing and challenging to do. I would also do this, because ever since I was a year 5 I have been wanting to weave something out of leaves. Weaving interest me, because looking at other people do it is always satisfying. Most of my family members have done it, before so I would like to try it out one time.

I love playing at the park, because I get to play different types of games like tag. The best part about being on the park on a sunny day is getting to play against your friends with challenging obstacles.

New Zealand is a wonderful hometown to a population of 4.794 million people, but you never know that New Zealand will be sinked, by any time. Most countries like Indonesia have been sinked by many times. If this happens New Zealand will be wiped out and all the cities and buildings will be gone by 2032, says the National Researchers of New Zealand. What are some situations to this problem? What are we going to do? Is it too late? Not only is there floods and sinking buildings disappearing, but everything is being stuck into the ground. Not only are there buildings, but we have sailing boats everywhere. According to this problem it looks like everything is going to get worse and worse. On a day in New Zealand we would either run summer activities or relax in the shade and read a book. We would usually eat ice cream and ice block in summer, because of the hot day. Some people would go for a swim, while others go for bike riding in the basin.

I also remembered that the people who was reading my post will have never been to New Zealand or even seen a picture. I haven't created a image, but I used one and attributed it above.

Above shows another place to stand activity that I completed for the Summer Learning Journey. To complete this activity I was to write a letter to a best friend or a family member telling them about my trip to the Tundra. To earn full points I would have to add a greeting, which I did. Below shows an image and my letter that I have written.


Greetings Marieta,

How has your day been lately. My day has been awesome at the moment. I had the chance to go and visit the Tundra. It is very cold and dry right now. The best part is that is mostly snows everyday. When I saw the animals I was overwhelmed, because I haven't seen most of them at any point, until now. There was one animal that changed it's colour to blend in with the winter. I found out that the word tundra comes from a Finnish word tunturi, which defines treeless plain. I also experience that polar bears come to the tundra  to give birth in summer. When I was in here the sun hadn't risen for about a week. There are 2 types of Tundra seasons. They are the long winter and short summer. The plants grow together as if they are bunched together as a group. What did you experience, anything fun that I missed out on?

Thank you
Kind Regards
Mele Latuila

Above shows another place to stand activity that I completed for the Summer Learning Journey. To complete this activity I was to tell others whether I think that logging should be allowed in New Zealand and why. My answer to this is yes. I think that we should allow logging in New Zealand, because  I think that more homeless people need houses, products, and heat/power. My other reason it that being able to log our trees would be good, because not only does it help our homeless people, but it can help kids in school with anything that needed like stationary, and it was also help groups donate money to others in the hospital.

Yes I would visit the Tane Mahuta tree, because the size of it looks enormous. I would also visit this tree, because I'd want to take a photo of it. By the looks of it the tree looks like there would be more than a million people visiting it each year. I would be one of them some time. I would also like to visit this tree, because there was a story that included Tane Mahuta in it. This book interested me. The quietness and wild nature in there looks wonderful.

Who am I?


Today Marieta and I were working together on this who am I in the world DLO. The first thing we did was create a DLO. This was a challenge to use our researching skills. These sidles will talk about different kinds of famous people in the world. We were to to add 5 interesting facts about the famous person. There were 10 famous people to complete about. Each slide contains a photo of the person, 1 google map image of their country, interesting facts, and the 5 questions that were asked to answer. Marieta and I worked collaboratively to finish this off. The best part of all was trying to answer the questions. This was fun, but at the same it was challenging, because we didn't know most of them, but using our researching skills helped us a lot. The questions were who am I, where am I from, why am I well known, and do I have a famous quote. The interesting part was using our researching skills to find facts about that famous person. After completing these slides we created a Kahoot that was based on all of these famous people.

1000 Blog Posts in Total




Today we had visitors that came in a visited each class. As the visitors entered our classroom one of them asked me about the amount of blog posts that I have in total. In total I have more than 1000 blog posts. I have succeed to achieve my goals, which is to reach 1000 blog posts in total. This means that I am the only student in this school that has reached the 1000 blog posts in total. I have received both my 500 and 1000 blog posts this year. I started blogging in 2015 when I was a year 4, until now. Above shows the photos of my blog and my badges that I've received this year. I have shared my learning to my global audience more than 1000 times for 5 whole years. Reaching 1000 blog posts is an honour, because I have been wanting to reach 1000 blog posts ever since I was a year 4. To reach 1000 blog posts I started posting 5 blog posts each week, but last year I blogged 9/10 tasks a week. The must do task list that my class used last year was impressive, because I got most of my blog post from that tasklist.

Cycling Monorail Invetion - Storyboard


Image result for cycling monorail

This week LS2 have been completing the city of sails challenges. The completed tasks that were set to complete were 5. For one of the activities we were to research a kiwi who invented something. Today Nickaela, Sky, Hajera, Fui, and, I collaboratively worked together to find information about our kiwi inventor. As a group we all agreed to create a storyboard about a kiwi called Geoff Barnett who invented a ride called the cycling monorail. It was called the cycling monorail, because it was exactly like the skyline, but with someone who cycles a bike throughout the whole ride. We decided to create a storyboard about this invention by using storyboard that. Our story was about Geoff Barnett who went to a circus and tried out new rides, but then he thought about creating his own ride, so that kids could be more active, besides sitting on a seat. Above shows the storyboard that we created and a image of Geoff Barnett's invention.

This week LS2 has been completing the City of Sails challenges. There were a lot of tasks to choose from.

For this task I was to create a DLO that explained where I would live and why. For me I would live in Rotorua, because there are a lot of things to do, there is even a lot of camping sites down there. There is also the skyline and the luge that I enjoy when I go to Rotorua all the time. Above shows the DLO that I created on my own. To make it better I added a image of one of the famous landmarks in Rotorua.

For this task I was to create a collage with Auckland images. I deicded to add images of the famous landmarks that are stated in Auckland. One of the images that I used was the Sky Tower, because our school visited the Sky Tower this year and I though that it was amazing to experience and learn about the Sky Tower. I got 9 images. It was the Rainbow's End theme park, Auckland Town Hall, Auckland Zoo, One Tree Hill Memorial, Michael Joseph Savage, Auckland Harbour Bridge, Auckland Museum, Sky Tower, and the Panmure Basin.

Steampunk Art


Steampunk Art






  


This week LS2 have been working on their steampunk art. Steampunk Art was used back then for horror movies, fantasy, and culture. The first thing that we did was to pick an image from google that had mechanical objects in it. I decided to create a heart with mechanical objects in it. After drawing my piece of art I then animated it on a google drawing. Compared to the image that was actually draw by me looked amazing, because some details looked exactly like the other. After animating mine of the computer I was to write the meaning of steampunk in my own words. Above shows the images and meaning that I created on my own. Savelina and I both created a DLO that was based on the Wash Day with Victorians. The DLO explained each equipment that they used during their wash day like the washing mangle, washing board, and the dolly stick.

Leadership Speeches


At Panmure Bridge School we have leadership positions. This year our school leaders were Tiava, Jeremiah, Ofa, Sanujan, Mataio, and Savelina. For the pass few weeks the year sevens have been completing leadership challenges. Last week all the year sevens started writing their leadership speeches. My speech was based on becoming the Head Girl of 2019. Below shows my leadership speech that I wrote for Head Girl. Everyone who spoke was amazing, because they showed confidence. Everyone who spoke created a collage to show them showing leadership. Ms Kirkpatrick, Mrs Anderson, Miss Millward, Mr Johnston, and the our student leader of 2018 were out audience. When we came back to class the teachers and leaders were to vote for who they want to become the school leaders of 2019. At prize giving the school leaders will be announced.

Colour Theory





This week for tech was our last session of tech. Our tech teacher was Ms Ferguson. Today we learnt the differences between analogous colours and complementary colours. A analogous colour is a colour that is next to each other. A complementary colour is a colour that is opposite each other. Above shows the DLO and the drawing that I created on my own. For my complementary colours I decided to use orange, blue, and purple to colour in my Fanta. For my next logo I will be colouring the Fanta, by using analogous colours. At the moment im still colouring in my analogous Fanta drawing.

Leadership Challenges




This week is the leadership week for the year 7's. Leadership week is when the year 7's gather together to develop their leadership skills. Yesterday we all got into groups and we started completing different challenges together. Throughout these challenges we were communicating, collaborating, and showing team work. Our first task was a given question that needed to be answered by our groups. The question was how can you motivate others to drink water. It was challenging, because we weren't allowed to talk during this challenge. Our team's idea was to create an animation based on kids drinking water. We also discussed about the word teamwork. Teamwork to us means a group of people coming together to share new ideas and agree on each others opinions. After this we headed to the hall to complete another challenge. For this challenge we were to create the largest pyramid by using isometric diamonds. We worked as a group by discussing what each person was to do during this challenge. Angela and I were tracing around the template, while Jonathan and Julian were cutting it out and placing it on the piece of paper. As a result Alex's group won for this challenge. Lastly we were to find another group to work with. This time we were to gather our shapes together and build the largest pyramid. This time we were allowed to talk. In my group I had Angela, Julian, Jonathan, Jack, Neveah, Avalon, Chavda, and myself. This meant that there were 2 groups with 8 people in it. Before starting this challenge we came together to discuss about what each person was going to do. Avalon, Angela, and Neveah were drawing, while Chavda and I were tracing the templates. Jack and Julian were placing it on, while Jonathan was collecting the isometric diamonds for the cutters. As a result our group won this challenge. Were all enjoyed our time, but at the end of the day everyone are winners.

For this we were to find a helpful website that taught us how to create a paper plane. Together my group and I found a website that taught us how to create a fast paper plane. After creating these paper planes we were to go outside and start throwing our paper planes as a group. As a class the year 7's gathered together and threw their planes group by group in the hall. As a result for the team challenge Julian's group won with a score of  14.1. The furthest throw was Chavda with a result of 14.5. Above shows the DLO that we created together.

Today Panmure Bridge School participated in the athletics day. Athletics is when you do a bunch of field activities with your class. There were 4 house colours. They were red, blue, yellow, and green. There were 9 field events. They were rob the nest, hurdle and sponge relay, shot pot, discus, lifesaver, egg and spoon race, rest/dance station, long jump, and the Frisbee race. My house group was red. In my group I had Jeremiah, Harlem, Chavda, and Junior. We all enjoyed the activities that we participated in. We had students from Tamaki College to help us with the activities. My favourite activity was the hurdle and sponge relay, because I liked it how I got wet. The last field event that we did was sprints. Each year group had a different meter mark to run from. Overall I came 2nd for the year 7 girls.
