Skip Ball

This week our literacy and home class had a discussion about how would we put our materials into a fitness obstacle, our materials that we used was: one ball, one skipping rope and two hula hoops.
Also I group is called skip ball. 

what we did was make a some ideas then put them together and we came up with this. The first person to get to the skipping rope shoots the ball first, if they get the ball through the hoop, there team mate tries it out if that person missed the hoop that team is eliminated and the opponents group wins.


Our rules for our game is: Don't cheat, Don't hate, Don't get smart to the opposite team and be supportive.

Speech's

Last week Friday the 25th of august we had a few kids from the pavilion to come watch some of our year seven and eight students deliver there speech. There were 15 students that had written there speech's about the past, money or safety, all of the student's were confident and gave eye contact to their audience.

Two of our senior girls had made their speech's make one of our teachers cry because it was a loving speech and also a person had past away as well through out their speech, I thought that Amelia and Danielle's speech was powerful and had made people feel sad but it was a very nice and clear speech. I think that both of them were pretty high marks.

Speech 2: Education

Kia Ora,
This week my speech is about Education and how it helps students in school. As us kids at Pt England school, we’re lucky to be using our own individual netbooks to help us learn.

Imagine if education didn’t exist. None of us children will learn how to read, write and also the most important thing in education is opening opportunities for the future.

Why is education important for children around the world? Because children in the future need to have good lives and have jobs to be able to pay the bill.

Education is not all about having a good life in the future, it is about having knowledge and success.

This is my speech and I hope you have also learned a few things of why education is important, So now you can have a think about your life in the future.

Winter learning day 1

Well, the time has now come! School’s out for the holidays and your tour of New Zealand is about to begin. I hope that you are ready and excited! Curious Kiwi certainly is – he can’t wait to start the Great Kiwi Road Trip! Before you all hit the road, let’s take a minute to review some key facts about New Zealand.

Activity 1:  Go to the Tourism New Zealand website and click on the ‘Facts - New Zealand People’ tab. Read about the people of New Zealand and then choose three interesting facts to post on your blog. The facts must be written in your own words. Do not simply copy and paste the facts from the website.

Activity 2: Your tour of New Zealand is going to start right here in Auckland. Watch the Tourist video for Auckland to learn about the awesome things that you can see and do in the city. Once you’ve finished, choose your favourite five activities from the video and list them on your blog.  

Bonus Activity: Now it’s time to start your tour! Curious Kiwi decides to start by taking you on a short tour through downtown Auckland. You stop at the Sky Tower, the tallest building in all of New Zealand. When you look up, you see a huge New Zealand flag on the top of the tower. This flag was created back in 1902. That makes the New Zealand flag 115 years old!

Last year, the Prime Minister of New Zealand suggested that we should replace the flag with a new, updated design. He invited everyone in New Zealand to come up with their own flag design and submit it.
For this activity, it is your turn to design a new flag. Use any drawing programme that you wish. I would recommend the Flag Designer website. It allows you to create a flag in three easy steps. When you are done, take a screenshot of your flag and post it on your blog. Here is an example:
Source: http://flag-designer.appspot.com
To earn full points you must describe the flag, in words, below the picture. Please tell us what is on the flag and what inspired your design.

Speech

Image result for fidget spinnerFidget spinners have been affecting us kids from concentrating on work that is meant to be done. Fidget spinners have been banned from classrooms and schools around the world. Fidget spinners are just meant for older people to concentrate instead of older people pushing their finger down on the pen constantly or rubbing their finger tips together. Also  that’s why students here have been getting lower grades.

Students have also been bringing them to school for others to play in their classrooms and also showing their classmates about how cool their fidget spinner is. That is why some students have been getting alday growlings from teachers and this sometimes makes students go wild.

Some kids don’t even pay attention to their work, they also don’t pay attention to their teacher that is why teachers get so frustrated and want the student to get out of the class.

This is my writing for week 6. Our learning intention is to capture our audience's attention.
