Pepeha

This week I made a pepeha. A “pepeha” is a  self portrait mixed with things about you.

First I made a copy of the template. The template included things like our culture, a symbol that is important to us, and our moutain, and awa.

Next I started adding stuff to the template. My important symbol was the cross, maunga (Mountain) being Mt Wellington, culture being of  Samoan & Tongan, and awa (river) being Tamaki River.

 

PE

For PE this week are PE teacher was Miss Erasmus and we learned about this sport named Shot Put.

Shot put is an event in which the participant stands inside a circle and attempts to “put” a weighted ball as far as they possibly can. The “put” is different than a “throw” due to the motion of the arm.

And Miss Erasmus said “Who ever throws the ball the furthest maybe gets pick to go to the inter school athletics” and when i heared that i was jumping up and down.

After that we started and then after the people did there terns it was mine i got up and i got the heavy ball and i trew it and i made it to the inter school athletics and my firend Ahea made it aswell and me and my firend Ahea were so happy.

And was so much fun.

Niuean Language Week

Fakaalofa lahi atu! This week is Niuean Language Week.

Our task was to create a two different posters to do with the Niuean language and culture and practice introducing ourselves.  The first was a poster with phrases and greetings in Niuean language.  The second was a fact file with different information about Niue. On the last slide I have introduced myself in Niuean.  I have learnt that E means Yes.  I have also learnt that Nakai means No.

Hot Wheels – Off Roading

This week for reading we have been focusing on revision.  Revision means looking at something previously read or studied to memorise it or change it or improve it.  We are revising our comprehension skills because we have testing soon.  I chose to read the story Hot-Wheels Off Roading by Ed Wisinski and Dave White.  I read it for 15 minutes then I completed this SSR Selfie.  I would recommend this book to other because if you own your own Hot Wheels toys, you will read about them in the book.

Term 3 Review

In LS1, this term was full of exciting things like, Cybersmart, Algorithm (Math) and many more. 

 

Thinking back on the last few months, I was so happy about my speech about why we should wear mufti.

 

I’ve been busy with all sorts of subjects, but the best part about Term 3 for me was Hpe, like Football,

Swimming, Ki O Rahi. and maths, like Algorithm, Fractions, and many more.                                                                                           

When it comes to reading, my favourite text I read was The Dive because it made me think about swimming and jumping into a pool.

 

Writing was super fun, especially when I got to a speech and when I had to say my speech in front of the whole class.

 

In Maths, I especially enjoyed it when we learnt about Division, Algorithms, because it’s just really understandable and easy to understand or learn about.

For our special Inquiry experiments, I really enjoyed dancing raisins and cashews because it was interesting to see the raisins and cashews going up and down, some raisin’s staying up and some cashews staying down.

 

In P.E. (Physical Education), I had a blast participating in Ki o Rahi because it was fun and quick to learn. And Football was really fun and I had a blast playing with my classmates and all that.

 

But you know what? I also found some areas where I can get even better. Like in reading. In reading I would mostly sit next to my classmates but sometimes I get distracted because I always talk to them and I move to another table to sit with someone not mostly distracted.

 

While I loved writing, I’ve noticed I need to work on more work because I always talk to my classmates but when I am not with them I get more work done and sometimes I finish my work. So basically what I need to work on is not to sit with my classmates sometimes.

 

In our special projects, I realised I need to work on listening to the teacher more because I get distracted sometimes.

 

In P.E., I think I could improve on my attitude because i get angry easily but sometimes i cool down with my anger and still having a positive attitude

 

Looking forward to the next term, I’m excited about the Athletics day and the Film Festival and mostly Prizgiving.  

 

And I’m thankful for having the opportunity to have the best term with my classmates and my teachers.

 

I can’t wait to see what the next term brings, and I’m ready to have the best term next term and make sure not to make things snowball and try not to get in that many fights with some students and just to make the best and having a positive attitude for next term. (Here is two more photos of me this term)

8-Bit Art

For Cybersmart today we did 8-Bit Art, and we have learned about pixels. A “pixel” is a single point in a picture. On a screen a pixel is usually a square. And its so fun and easy to learn.

And I’ve used this site called Make 8-Bit Art to make the characters.

The characters are Ash and Pikachu from a famous tv-show called Pokemon.

Hakula East U10s

 

For last Saturday I had a tournament for Hakula Tonga Rugby League East U10s.

I had so much fun playing and playing with my friend Vaingalo. There was lots of food there and we saw the other Hakula teams and the Samoan teams and many more like Cook Islands, Niue and Māori.

All right let’s get to talking about the games.

The first game was good and we played against the Cook Island U10s. We first had to start doing the haka and then after we did the haka the Cook Island team did their haka. And then the game started. First we had the ball and Vaingalo got the first try and then the Cook Island got a try and then I forgot  the rest. But it was a tie at the end of the game.

Now for the second game we played against Hakula South. I forgot what the game plays were sorry but it was another tie.

Now we have the last game vs Māori’s and we lost.  Miss Tele’a watched our game and sent us these photos.

For PB4L Today we have been talking about Personal Spaces.

Personal space is the amount of space someone needs around them to be comfortable. Different people feel comfortable with different amounts of personal space. It’s important not to get into someone else’s personal space, and to politely let others know when you aren’t comfortable with how close they are to you.
