Room 5’s Review - Cybersmart

Room 5’s Review - Cybersmart

This is a movie about Pt england student from Room 5 being cybersmart . The key message behind the scene is to be cybersmart at all time and being on the right site on our devices. This is also a message to students to not bring their phones to school. This isn’t appropriate for student  being it will be a distraction towards school learning. This movie is about simon being dodge on his phone during school. Simon, Tamauri, Henry and Taiaha where caught by a group of girls ( Presayus, Rowana, Koula and Allahazy) and  been sent to the teacher Mrs Fosita (Uli) They were put on Rethink. The lesson behind the scene was to be cybersmart.  

The lighting in the film was not consistent because some parts of the scene was dark and some were light. The camera shots were  appropriate because the shot were low and the some shots were fast forward so that it can be more entertaining. The type of camera they used was a video camera. They should've of used a drone because it will look more like a real movie.

We could hear the dialogue of 11 different characters in the scene. The script did not help describe the story well. I think if there was no tile the it won’t describe the script because younger kids won’t understand words like ‘ Gap it eah and   

To be continued  

Facing my Fear

                               Facing my fear

OMG!! As I watched the Stratosfear ride swing back and forth I was terrified and entertained at the same time. I was in the line to have my turn  when I saw the ride flip upside down. I was anxious at the same time I wanted to face my fear. It was my turn to go on so I quickly hopped on and buckled my seat belt.

The ride began starting with a slow pace. All of a sudden something bad, really bad made a loud rumble. I was going to explode. The ride went higher and higher in slow motion when, I spewed out colorful things which you don’t need to know. I felt so sorry for the people who were watching. Ohh my gosh!! I noticed that I was upside down. I panicked and screamed then panicked and screamed.
My friend’s mum was also on the ride and made sure If was scared I would hold her hand really like really tight.  I felt sorry because I was squeezing her hand so tight her veins were popping out.  My blood was rushing down to my head as it felt like it was going to explode.  The ride was starting to go slower and slower. It was finally done. My legs were like jelly that was going to collapse. I really didn’t want to go back again.

solve it.

Reflection from this term

This year has gone past really fast and it’s almost the end of the year.  It’s been fun meeting new teachers and friends. I have achieved lots this term and hope to achieve more next term. I have made many memories with new friends from the year 8’s. Unfortunately the year 8’s will be leaving soon to college and the year 7’s will then become the leaders of the school.

Best memory of term 3:
I admit that my best memory was when I attended  the mixed netball tournament. It was cool meeting different people in schools and playing against others. Netball was a fun sport to play and I enjoyed a lot, I also made new friends from other schools. Such as: Tamaki Primary, Sylvia Park and Glen Taylor, these schools are the ones that we played against. I had also played with my year 8’s friends as this year will be there last year.

One of the Funniest moment this term was when  Peteli get snap wearing his pant backward on the way they were going to tech.

I had the experience to work with year 8’s and learn their personality. For year 8’s, these three teams were a blasted. My Opinion for next year would be accomplishing more of my learning so that I could succeed for the future. As I have one more year at Pt England school before i leave I would like to be a great example to the year 6’s next year. I’m looking forward to 2017.

Saia and Gabriel trip to silicon valley

Last week Gabriel and saia came to talk about their trip to silicon valley in california. Saia and Gabriel had been picked to go to california to explore different apps store such as Google, Facebook, Microsoft, stanford university, Twitter, Alcatraz, inflection, apple, yelp, Khan academy,Ideo Instagram and xero.

They went on a tour in a prison called Alcatraz which was the best jail in the world but still is in America. They shut down this prison because three men escaped from jail but they were never found. The prison was surrounded with water which had sharks. People didn’t know if they were dead or alive because they might of been eaten from sharks or survived by swimming to the nearest land. I really want to go and visit Alcatraz because I really Iike to know more about how the prisoner escaped and what they do all day in prison.

Gabriel and saia inspired me to visit around california because it sound really fun since they get to stay in a cool hotel and go to different places in california. They even went to the Golden gate bridge. There message to us is to set a goal and think ahead about it and think if you are doing the right thing so that you can be at your goal. This is also an inspired message to younger kids to set a goal and dream big.

Why Sleeping is Important?

How much sleep do we need?
Do you know how important sleep is? It really depends on what age you are. The older you are then less sleep you will need. Baby sleep 14-17 hours at night compared to adults they need 7-9 hours a sleep.
Baby almost sleep throughout the whole day!! When we sleep early we wake up refresh but if we sleep really late then you may as well be exhausted and moody throughout the day. Sleep is very important because it can help heal and repair your heart and blood vessels.
What happens to our bodies when we sleep?
When we start to sleep there is a cycle in our body that makes us go into a deep sleep and into a lighter sleep. Once we fell asleep we start to go into a deep sleep then after a while we start to get into a lighter sleep, that”s when we start to dream. Scientist found out when you move your eyes really fast under your eyelids it means you are dreaming. The different between deep sleep and light sleep is deep sleep is a normal and light sleep is when you dream about different imagination.

Tracking 24 hours to tell us when we sleep?
When we sleep we have a clock inside our body, not a really but a clock that tracks 24 hours. This clock helps us to wake up in the daytime and sleep in the night time. Once we travel to another country we have to adjust the time Zone so that we can wake up at the same time in the day and sleep in the night. Sunlight and darkness also allow our bodies to reset themselves to match the new time zone so that we don’t wake up in the night and sleep during the day. This adjustment will take days until the adjustment has been done.

Important step to get a great sleep?
There are plenty of ways to get a great sleep, you can do something relaxing such as reading a book, having a cup of tea or have a warm shower. Turn on the lights as soon as you wake up. Turn off your devices, electronic, games and television before you go to sleep. You can sleep a similar time every night and Avoid bright lights when you go to sleep. Getting enough sleep can help protect your mental health, physical health and safety. Why is sleep important to you?

Think Borad

This is my think board for week 2, Term 3. My maths class room 2 has been
learning about decimals and another way I solved was that I take away the decimal
point and times it like this... 1234 x 7 = 8638. There are 3 number after the decimal
point so 8638 will now be turn into decimal like this 8.638 , because there was three
numbers after the decimal point on the 8638 you have to put the decimal point in the
last three numbers. So that was how I get my Answer: 8.638

Activeities 1 -Winter Learning Journey

Imagine if I was running in the Ancient Olympic competing in the running marathon before Jesus was even born, I would feel like I am dreaming.The first Ancient Olympic was in the 776 BC . I would love to compete in the running marathon because I love running but back then women won't allowed to compete in the Ancient Olympic. The first Olympic games that women could play in was in 1900. In the ancient Olympic Games there were only three running events back then. The athletes had to run from one side of the stadium to the other side. The diaulos was a middle distance race. The athletes ran two lengths of the stadium. The sport that I won't want to play in if I was allowed is wresting and boxing because it looks very dangerous and someone would get seriously hurt. The reason I picked this sport is because I love to stay fit and it is great for your health.

I shouted and shouted with me heart beating. Go, you can do it, I hear from the other team. Once it get to me I ran with the ball going around my waste. When we finished we put our hands on our head. Wow we actually came first!! The other team were all puffing like I was. The other teams had to do 10 push up and my team had to sit and watch them do it.We had 1 hour and 30 minutes with fun training. Before you know it, It was time for the Mystics player to go. So we said our Goodbyes and some Questions.

It was great to see the Mystics and it was fun training with them. They inspiring me to play more netball when I grow up. I hope one day I will be in a team like the Mystic representing New Zealand. They are amazing people that loves netball like me.Again a big thanks to christian va'afusuaga for that win because if you never enter then we wouldn’t meet with the three Mystic players. I hope to see the Mystic one day again.

A long, long time ago, as if we were in that days of the dinosaurs lived two proud maunga above and below the pristine pacific ocean. These two maunga were  deeply in love as if they were Ranginui the sky father and Papatuanuku the earth mother. However, maungarei stood tall above the sea as if he was sir Edmund Hillary and Rangitoto below the deep blue sea as if she was the earth core.

 It wasn’t all happy joy joy because these two lovebirds were separated by litres and litres of Pacific ocean and could not see each other as if they were blinded by love. Maungarei and Rangitoto could not see each other but still communicated through song as if they were big blue whales.

Screenshot 2016-06-01 at 10.30.11 AM.png The Lava had a dream that he would found someone to love. He song with joyness and watch above the blue sky. He was as lonely as if he was a moon. Under the sea there was a Volcano that know that the song was meant for her. The volcano was old and he turn into a stone. One day the lady volcano blow up from under the sea, but the she was facing a different direction from him. She was as tall as a tree and happy as a sunflower. She was high in the sky looking above the other sea creatures . She was happy and started to sing the song that Lava was singing. Lava was growing older and older every day One day Lava blow up was face to face with someone who he had love. There were as a overjoy couple. The two Volcano lived happy ever after.

Mixture of problem

Last week I was learning about Mixture of problems. For example Miss Berry
has a loille jar which has 502 lollies in it. If Miss berry gives out 217 lollies to her
student, how many lollies would see have left in the jar? A way I would do this is
 502 - 200 = 302. then 302 - 10 = 292. Then 292 - 7 = 285 .By solving this
problem I used partitioning . How would you solve this question?

Last term while the year 8 were having fun on camp the year 7 had there three days of fun all to ourselves. One the first day of our day we worked on our chromebook for 20 min and then watched a movie called Boy 2 Man. It was a relaxing time for us to enjoy. The year eight ledder who stayed behind handed out camuel pop corn. It was about a boy called malaga was run away from his Dad. He was 8 years of age. He hid from his dad in the street when a boy called Johno find him. He said what are you doing at in the cold. Malaga said he run away from his dad. Johno said he run away from his family along time ago and I’ve have been living in the street. Johno said that he would take care of Malaga. Malaga was a bite young then Johno by 5 years. They grow in the street up tell there were 15 years old they were still walking around the street. As year go on Malaga was with a family and Johno had a group of man in a gang. Malaga was going to a new college called James cook high school. Malaga was part of a dream class at the high school. He was the best dancer at of all of the student and they were preparing to compete other student from other college. On that day Johno also needed him but he wouldn’t let his dance crew down. So he went to the dancing competition and started dancing when in the middle of the dance competition one of the member from Johno crew called, if you don’t come your friend Johno will die, so Malaga run to his car and drove to the place he wanted him.  He arrived there and Johno and the other member was fighting when the  grab his screwdriver and run up to Johno to stab him but Malaga pushed Johno out of the way and Malaga get stab. He fell to the ground and he died. Johno was so sad, the next day they done a funeral for malaga. They said there goodbye.

On the second day we started making our flower layer. We were in group of four. We use lots of flower and pins.  Each rows had 5 in each. We were the first group to finish our flower layer. Once our group finish we help the other group with their flower. Some group couldn't finish there ones because they were out of pins so they had to cut the end of their layer.

One the third day of the fun week we made flowers to put around the pole for our year 8 to welcome them back from there three days of camp.  While we were finishing putting up some more flower layer on the pole the year 7 and the year 8 leaders watch some makalani movie from 2015. The table were already set in a line with pears on top. While we were watching the pastry mince and cheese were warming down. There were also coke for us. We were having a day off from work. After watching the movie miss muliaumasealii told us to go for a run before we would go and eat our delicious food. When we came back we sit in the street and started eating our food. It was delicious!!

At the end of the day Miss muliaumasealii give out prizes to the year eight ledder and the year 7s and also the management group. The management group was the one who prepared all of the food and the flowers for the year 8.
