At tech the year eights have been doing graphics with Ms Ferguson. Ms Ferguson wasn't here today so we had a reliever. Today instead of completing our clocks we were drawing some cool flowers stars and cubes only using circles. To make these patterns I needed a pencil, ruler and a compass. While I was doing this activity I learnt how to use a compass properly.

Women's Suffrage Sketchnote

For reading we have been learning about Kate Sheppard and the women's suffrage movement. The suffrage movement happened over one hundred years ago. In our sketchnote we have added in some definitions of words and have answered some questions. For this task I worked with Te Wai, Lyndon and Daniel. We all had to talk with each other about our learning so that everyone knows what we have been learning about.

Kate Sheppard DLO

For reading we have been learning about a really famous New Zealander. Her name is Kate Sheppard. She had a big impact on women rights. In our DLO we had to find out why she is famous, what she did, who she was and he personality qualities. I worked with Te Wai, Lyndon and Daniel. We had to do a lot of talking about our learning so everyone knew what to do.


In LS2 we have been practicing our dance moves for the school production that Zoe has taught us. The type of learning we were doing was called rewindable learning. We were split into three groups and each of them doing a different song. My group is doing Stayin' Alive by the Bee Gees. The other two groups are doing I See Red and Footloose. Yesterday Mrs Anderson recorded us doing our dance moves. We then watched the video and tried to see what we could improve on. We found out that we had to be in time with each other and to go in the same direction.

Maths DLO

Today for maths Daniel and I worked together to complete a set of fraction word problems. After we solved all of them we had to chose one word problem to put in our DLO. We both found the fraction word problems quite easy.

Winter Learning Journey Participation and Awards

Today Rachel came to our school to give out certificates to the people who participated in the Winter Learning Journey over the holidays. It was really amazed to hear that there were more participating than last time. The people who managed to come first, second and third managed to win a prize. Daniel and Oh Hsen came first, I managed to tie second with Alex and Eric and Ofa came third. I would like to thank Rachel and her team for doing a fantastic job running this programme and I can't wait to participate in the next one.


For tech the year eights have been doing Graphic with Ms Ferguson. The past weeks we have been planning our design for our clocks. We had to draw it on paper first then get cut out using the laser cutter. After our designs got cut out we had to draw the out lines that are going to be on it. Then when we finished that we had to paint our designs. I decided to make a basketball clock.
