Term 3 Paideia Seminar - EXTC

Today the Y7&8 EXT participated in a Paidea Seminar. A Paidea Seminar is when we come together in our own groups and argue about different statements its like a class discussion but better. There were different groups the Nutritionists, Athletes, Teachers, Doctors, Parents and my group the Shop Owners. In my group was Paikea, Sheena and Naomi. We argued from a Shop Owner's perspective about healthy food. I thought that my group did well in presenting our research and we contributed a lot about Shop Owners. Other groups had very interesting statements to make about healthy food especially the doctors. They said that 50% of Maori's had obesity but pacific islanders had 69% of obesity which was very scary to hear.

 I think that I did well during our discussion better than last term but I think that I should've included more people into our discussion because most people weren't discussing with the whole group. Overall I enjoyed the Paidea Seminar and I learn't lot's of interesting facts and information.

Te Wa Toi Research

Task Description: Last week Team five did some research on five different types of artists. This rotation went from Monday to Friday switching to a different class each day. I learn't about artists that I never knew before and some that I thought I knew well but I turned out to be wrong! I found out lot's of interesting facts and discussed about it with my friends. Our task was to fill in the boxes with different facts and images about the artist we learn't about. I enjoyed learning about Lady Pink because she was interesting and had amazing artwork. Enjoy!

Task Description:
Today's in Maths me and Naomi collaborated together in a maths treasure hunt. We were
just revising on our work and we used our knowledge
from term 1 to complete this task. We also picked up little pieces of information from
the work and also
help from our teacher Mrs Stone. There were hidden messages in the graph
that we hard to work out but we managed to solve
