SLJ WK 1 Bonus Activity

Bonus Activity: Musical Festivals – Matatini

In New Zealand, a huge festival is held every two years, called Te Matatini. This performing arts festival celebrates the tikanga (culture or customs) of Māori. Kapa Haka groups from around New Zealand are invited to attend the festival and each group gives a 25-minute performance. The performances are judged and the best teams win prizes.

The gold medal winning team from this year (2017) was Te Kapa Haka o Whāngārā Mai Tawhiti.
Here's what I think:
1. Te Puku o Te Ika
2. Te Iti Kahurangi
3. Tamatea Arikuni

First of all all items were beautiful. They sang, danced and told a story very well! Let's start with Tamatea Arikuni. Tamatea Arikuni was pretty good. Although I they they just needed more Kaha during there Item. It sound more like soft and got to be honest boring. 2nd Te Iti Kahurangi had alot more power then Tamatea Arikuni. They were very loud and outstanding! They sang very well and I enjoyed there performance. Finally Number 1! Te Puku o Te Ika stood out the most to me! They were louder and had lot's of Kaha! I loved how they dedicated the performance to a man as they held up a photo of him. It was a really heartwarming item to see. I thought they did AWESOME! Well that's what I think leave a comment down below on what you really think! Were they good or not really good?

SLJ WK1 D4 Activity 1/2 Hitting a High Note

Activity 1: The Waiata - A Song in Your Heart
In the past, Māori would often use song as a way of sharing information or communicating emotions.  A waiata is the name given to a traditional Māori song. One of my all-time favourite waiata is Kia Paimarie. What about you?

Actually I have 2 all time favourite waiata's! It is Tutira Mai Nga Iwi and Tiaho Mai Ra. I liked both songs because they have strong meanings. A student that attended Te Kura Kaupapa Maori O Nga Mokopuna in Wellington. There she composed the song for her brother that she saw as a brother having trouble. The other Tutira Mai Nga Iwi is a very strong song it's all about standing together as one team and working hard. Both songs are very strong and has a good meaning to it. 
Activity 2: Playing Games
Hundreds of years ago, young Māori children were taught to play a number of games, including Poi Rakau, Ki O Rahi, Koruru Taonga and Poi Toa. Read about each of these four games on the Rangatahi tu Rangatira website. Have you played any of them before? Isn’t it cool how the games have been passed down for generations?
The name of the game I chose it called Poi Rakau!
The aim of the is to try and get the other opponents stick before it falls on to the ground and you OUT!
The rules of the game are you will stand in a circle each holding a pole. When the caller yells left or right but in maori Maui or Ratau you will move to that direction and take the other opponents spot.
I've played Poi rakau before but this was back in 2016 when we had Maori! I would definitely like to play again!

SLJ WK 1 Bonus Activity

Bonus Activity: Fun Family Facts

Everyone’s family is unique. What makes your family special? Choose three people close to you and ask them what their two favourite things to do in summer are.

My Brother: Jumping on the trampoline and playing rugby outside.

My Sister: Like going to the pools in Pakuranga and sleeping.

My Mother: Reading Books and the Bible and doing Gardening outside. 

SLJ WK 1 D3 Activity 1/2 It's all in the family

Activity 1: The More, the Merrier?
In the 1800s, most families were pretty big. In fact, many parents had an average of seven to nine children.  Imagine that you were a child in the 1800s and you had nine siblings.
How I would feel being in a big family:
I got to be really honest I think that living in a big family would be awesome! Why I think that? Even though I have little family that I live with I still think that having a big family would be good, you can help each other very well and work together as a team to make things work. Sometimes being in a big family will have lot's of money and payment issues that's why you have other people like older siblings that can help make things right, like making a family Garage sale! That my onion. Comment down below what you think Yes or No?

Activity 2: Acknowledging Ancestry
All of us are members of a family. Some of us have large families and some of us have very small families. When I have the opportunity to talk about my family and my ancestry I sometimes choose to use a pepeha. It is a very special way of identifying who I am and where I come from. There are many different versions of pepeha but most provide people with information about who you are and where you come from (i.e. your whakapapa).

Image result for Tongan FlagKo Mounga Talau (Mt Talau) te maunga Ko Fetoa te awa         
Ko Taulanga puatalefusi te waka
Ko Ma'u tōku tīpuna
Ko Falefisi tōku iwi          
Ko Falepua tōku hapu
Ko Mapuatonga tōku marae
Ko Makave Vava'u, Tonga ahau
Ko Meliame rāua ko Samiuela ōku mātua
Ko Amelia tōku ingoa.

My Other Pepeha: Tena Koutou Katoa!
Ko Maungarei Te Maunga
Ko Tamaki Te Awa
Ko Waitemata Te Moana
Ko Ukutoia Te Papa Ko Tavake Toku Koroua
Ko Simaima Toku Nana
Ko Samiuela Toku Papa
Ko Meliame Toku Mama
Ko Amelia Ahau
No reira tena koutou, tena kotou, tena ra tatou katoa!

SLJ WK 1 Bonus Activity

Bonus Activity: Special Meals!
Rachel's Favorite meal below
Back in the 1800s, most Māori ate a simple diet. They ate foods that they could catch in the water (eg. fish) or grow on the land (eg. kumara). They did not have access to a supermarket to buy food for their meals! Speaking of meals, what is your favourite meal? Mine is wood-fired pizza. Yum!

For this activity we had to post a picture of a favourite meal and talk about it.

Shepard's Pie!
Image result for shepards pie
!This is not my photo!
My favourite meal is Shepard's Pie! Shepard's Pie is a big pie that has layers of potatoes, vegetables, mince and of course CHEESE! It is my favourite meal because when I first tasted it when my cousin's made it was a YASS from me! So I decided to go for 3rd's! The layers inside was delicious but my favourite was the mince and potatoes! I think that this is an awesome meal because you can share it (only if you make a big batch) and enjoy the mouth-watering pie! When my mum and I make it we just eyeball the ingredients and it turns out amazing. But if you'd like to try it out here's the recipe on how the make Shepard's Pie the Professional way! Click this link.

SLJ WK1 D2 Activity 1/2 It’s All in a Day’s Work

Activity 1: A House or a Home?
In the 1800s, most Māori lived in villages called pa. Each village had many buildings – kauta where people cooked, pataka where they stored goods and wharepuni where the Māori slept. A traditional wharepuni had a thatched roof and walls made of timber, fern, rushes and bark.
For this activity we had to compare the wharepuni to our house. This is my compare and contrast below showing the differences and the similarities between my house and the wharepuni.

Activity 2: The Rules Of Engagement
During the early years in New Zealand, men and women would often marry at a young age. Women were expected to have babies and remain in the home caring for their children. Few, if any, left home in search of work. Men, on the other hand, were expected to work outside of the home. These days, we don’t have the same strict expectations about work. Girls and boys can choose their own path in life. So for this activity we had to draw yourself doing our dream job. Here's mine!
When I grow up really want to become at teacher. People like my teacher and my mother inspire me to become one and I love working with other kids it makes me feel in a happy and safe environment!

SLJ WK 1 Bonus Activity Waka Ama

For this Bonus Task I had to watch a Waka Ama race. After watching this video I have to write on my blog if I would like to participate in this sport or not. If would like to watch the video click this link.
Image result for waka ama

I would like to participate in Waka ama because I have never participated in sports including water (besides swimming) Looking at the video I felt like it took a lot of training and team work to complete the race. I also want to join Waka ama because I want to know how it felt when the settlers arrived in NZ. It was probably nerve wrecking. I would also like to participate in Waka ama because I have never done this sport before and I would like to see myself improve on how far I go and how fast I can paddle. Watching the video it looks quite challenging because we have to go in straight line! I think that would be challenging because I might go in circles. But yeah I would like to give Waka ama a try!

SLJ WK1 Activity 1/2 Arriving in Aotearoa (NZ)

Activity 1: The First Settlers - Welcome to my first Holiday Blog-Post! I am participating in SLJ
Image Attribution
Image result for maui and the giant fish

For this activity we had to create read a short story about one of the famous men in Maori mythology (Maui) Here is my three facts that I had learned from the story and Maui. If you'd like to read the story yourself click this link.

First Fact: Based on the story I read about Maui and the Giant Fish, Maui was a brave man he did not listen to the comments his brothers made and he kept on moving on.

Second Fact: It is said in Polynesian Mythology that Ancient Polynesians used the stars to find a way to there destination. According to myths I read the navigators followed the stars that formed the shape of Maui's hook. In other legends and myths about Maui he used his hook to stop the sun from going fast and how he pulled the giant fish.

Last Fact: The story I read about Maui and the giant fish (Te ika a Maui) Sorry If I spelt that wrong! The giant fish that he pulled from the sea became the north island of our beautiful land New Zealand. That was what the Maori mythology said and what most Maori's believe.

I have also read a story that is famous in Maori mythology with is Maui and the sun. 
Activity 2: Setting Sail
Image result for waka olden daysIt must've been very braves of those who travelled to Aotearoa. So for this activity we had to imagine that we were on board on one of those waka's, and we have to write a letter to a friend about our trip to NZ! Here is my letter.

Thank You Writing! Athletics Day Highlights.

 Walt: using descriptive language.

Here's some of the highlights from the Year 6 Boys. All credits to Mr Goodwin.

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!

Times Tables Maths Test!

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

Musical Madness!

Walt: use adjectives to improve our descriptive writing.
WALT: use exciting language in a recount

Screen Shot 2017-10-11 at 2.39.29 PM.png

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!

Holiday Blogging - Going to AUT!

Today I went to AUT with mum! But let me go back to the start. Today I had to wake up early @ 5:00 am. I was so tired because I don't really wake up early. I'm a sleeper! Anyways me and my mum woke up early and got ready. I packed lunch, My Chromebook (So I can do some learning there + So I'm not bored) and Earphones. Today I went to AUT with mum! But let me go back to the start. Today I had to wake up early @ 5:00 am. I was so tired because I don't really wake up early. I'm a sleeper! Anyways me and my mum woke up early and got ready. I packed lunch, My Chromebook (So I can do some                                                                                             learning there + So I'm not bored) and                                                                                                                                                               Earphones. 
After that me and my mum walked from home all the way to the Pamure Bus Stop. When we went inside the bus it was a bit crowded there. The bus kept on moving on and on and lot's of people almost lost there balance. Then we came to our destination. Me and my mum head off the bus and head to AUT. First we arrive in the Library. My mum goes on a computer and continues of with her study. Well I was just on my Chromebook chilling with my head phones on. I thought that the Library was a good start to the day for the students so they can re-fresh there minds and focus on there
Study. Just like us at school! Everyday we also start silent
reading so we can be focused on work!

Our next stop was going to my mums lecture (Pasty). My mum was the only one there and it was a very quiet room. I was again just chilling and going on my Chromebook and video chatting with my friends. I had a little giggle but my mum told me to stop it. I looked out the window and I saw an amazing view. I forgot that we were on very high above ground. When I looked down I was very surprised because I've never been that high above ground ever since I went to the Sky Tower! I really enjoyed looking out the window that was one of my best bit's there.

After that me and my mum was hungry! So we decided to go look around and we saw a mini station with food. I saw lot's of people coming because the food was delicious. It was only 5$ for 1 and then you can come back for seconds for free! Me and my mum ate Curry (I love Curry!), Rice and lettuce with a bit of sauce. It was DELICIOUS! I really enjoyed eat the food. After a long time of studying me and my mum went to the parents room. This room is just for the parents who study in AUT to come with here kids and just relax. They also have a computer in case there students want to do there work! I was there and I slept for a pretty long time my mum did too! I thought that it was great @ AUT! I really enjoyed the trip! Anyways hope you enjoyed my trip to AUT!
