Task Description: This is my animation on How Does A Guitar Make Sound? This is my extension project finished. We were first put into groups of musical instruments and which ever group we were in we had to create an animation on how does the musical instrument make sound. I was in the Guitars. I first wrote a down on a doc and got some info about Guitars and how they make sound. I then shared with the other people in my group. We also had to create a soundtrack to go with our animation, You will hear my soundtrack in my animation. I also added a voice over to my animation to make it more appealing. Here is my animation finished! Hope you enjoy!

Thank You Writing! Athletics Day Highlights.

Dear Teachers, Parents and Helpers, Thank You for giving up your time and helping us with Athletics Day. It was an great day but it wouldn’t happen with you guys. I hope you enjoy this writing for you!

Athletics day is when the whole school comes together to compete and play sports. Everyone comes to school in their house colours. I was in Hokule’a (Green). The whole school gets put into their Years. I was in the Year 6 girls. Every Time we finish an activity Mr Jacobsen blows the bugle for the 5’s up and that means we have to change and move on to the next activity. If we come 1st, 2nd, 3rd and sometimes 4th in one of the activities we get to compete in the eastern zone. We compete against different people from other schools.


My favorite part of the day was Sprints! After morning tea time all the Year 6 girls had to go and line up for Sprints. I had lot’s of butterflies in my stomach and I did not know what to do. We were put into lines and we had to race the person in whichever line we were in. Overall I came 3rd in the 100m race and I was super happy!  

Next year my goal is to came 1st, 2nd or 3rd in next year’s activities. I am also hoping to get a better result in next year's athletics especially shot put, sprints, discus and javelin. I also want to get into more
sports next year so I can get better and better at sports.

It was an awesome day at athletics. I learned that when you are positive in sports you’ll get a good result, and that is what I learnt at athletics. I’d like to say another big thank you to all the parents and supporters. This could’ve not happen with you!

This is just a screenshot of what I did in my Times Tables Maths Test.

Have you ever seen your teacher sing before? Well today at our school Immersion Assembly, lot’s of music was happening in the hall! I’m looking forward to how the term is going to be!

This term our school topic is based on Music, and it is called Musical Madness! Team 1,2 and 3 was all about how music changes our feelings and how different beats can make up one song. Team 5’s crazy act was all about different beats to music! The Assembly was hilarious but my all time favorite act was Team 3’s little movie they made a mini Songs in Real Life video. It was an incredible video that  made me laugh the till the end.  



Finally it was Team 4’s turn! Team 4’s movie was a little car pool party! All the teachers from Team 4 were having fun singing in the car enjoying the music (but some of the music was boring because they were old school). The little movie was like a commercial for our school music. It was kind of like the commercial’s that Apple does for there music. This Term our Team is looking at making our own music, and even making instruments!



Since the Term is all about music I am dying to learn to play the Guitar! I also want to learn to play the drums and I think our Team Leader Mr Somerville will teach us because he is fantastic at playing the drums! Those are the instruments that I want to play but I’m also hoping to learn to play the piano along with other instruments too.

Overall I think that the Term will be awesome! I love music and I’m sure other people in the school do. I think that school and music goes together because her in Pt England we make up songs and sing to other songs too! In fact we already got school song already up called Musical Madness! I think that Term 4 will be great!
