Musical Madness Animation

This our school wide theme was called ‘Musical Madness’. For extension class our project was to create a movie and animation about how one musical instrument makes sound. I decided to create a movie to show how a guitar makes sound. I also created my original soundtrack on Garageband. I am actually quite good at playing the ukulele and piano in real life!

The Flight of the Bumblebees

On Wednesday Morning Room ten listened to the Flight of the Bumblebees. We had to draw a picture that explains the video. The person who wrote the songs name is Rimsky-Korsakov and he was born in 1844 and died in 1908 ( He died at the age of 64 ). In my picture it explains a bee collecting nectar from beautiful flowers in the sun shining weather ( This is in the beginning of the song were it is smooth ). But then all of a sudden a storm comes in and washes the bee out like Incy Wincy Spider( In this part of the song it sounds very rough ).

Week 2 Comprehension Task

Reaction Question: Do you think it is a good idea to learn our times tables using songs? Why/ why not?

Response: I think that it is a good idea because Miss West showed me a text and it said this . To calm your nerves and help you concentrate, a little bit of Mozart might make memorization more manageable. To me it really related to the question.

Made with Padlet

Thursday, 21 September 2017


Finally it was time to walk into the Tusitala for the Term 3 Paideia Seminar. In my group it was Jahzara and Zaeeda our group was called Gravitia. The focus question was “Is Being Civilised such a good thing”. For me I was so nervous and excited. As I sat down Mrs Sinclair told everyone to just jump into it, but I was feeling shy.  I am not surprised that I was a bit shy because in the last Seminar I did not talk much but in reality I’m the complete opposite. So for the Seminar Mrs Sinclair wrote down everyone’s name and she gave a point if you had a question or a statement.

Counter Catching Challenge

On Tuesday Morning ,
Just after reading our SSR books (Sustained Silent Reading books) Room 10 Literacy Class was called to there mat. Miss West then said “ Ok class , today for writing we are going to do The Coin Flipping  Challenge “ everyone gasped in excitement but some were a bit confused. Miss West then gave everyone in the class the instructions of how to do it.”So first you put your arm as if you were about to lick your elbow and you put the counter on your elbow and using the same hand you have to catch the counter and as soon as you do you raise your hand to get another counter“ Miss West said.  

Paragraph: 2

Room 10 all lined up at the door ready to go out to the court’s. As soon as we did get to the court’s Miss West told everyone to get into a big circle everyone all got one counter each, I was next to two girls named Chance and Mamarei. On my first try I failed but on my 4th I got it , I then put my hand up to get a another counter Miss West then gave me another and as soon as I got it some of the boys & girls were already up to their 5th counter. At the very end I got eight counter’s in total and I was so close in getting my 9th counter.


I really liked doing the Counter Flipping Challenge because it was really fun.

The Year 5\6 Extention Seminar

Last Thursday on the 6th April the year 5\6 Extension group had a big seminar. It was awesome there were a lot of people that means there were a lot of good ideas. So there were lollies in front of each group and whenever you made a response or a statement you would get a lollie. From my point of view I think that everyone did a really good job.

My Reflection of the Year 5\6 Camp

Our First Rotation on Day 1 was Youthtown in Room 6,7&8, we played 2 games Buddy’s Up and Dodgeball. Next we went to Killer Zone and as soon as we got there we all saw buncha balloons tennis balls and catapults , we were all cold, nervous and excited all at the same time. We then walked to the beach to do kayaking and as soon as we got there we saw Mr Burt and some other  helpers all ready to help us kayak.

My favourite part about camp was going to  Moana a nui kiwa pools. It was my highlight because there was a big slide and there was also a cool fountain where everyone wanted to sit. My other highlight of year 5\6 camp was the Camp Concert and how we
got to sleep in tents outside I was hard but it was cool.

I learnt how to kayak properly. I think that camp was a really cool way to bond for the year 5\6 together. I also think that Camp was also cool because of the all the games.

Rata replied “ Sorry, I was going to use it to build a waka so we can catch some fish for my whanau “ . “As long as you were reasonable you may“ Tane Mahuta said politely.

Letter to Mr Burt

Dear Mr Burt,

I am writing to you because Room 10 would like to plant some Harakeke\flax around the school. Because flax bushes will often support a large community of native birds, and also it provides shelter and food resources for them. The Harakeke is also known for weaving, so if girls are good at braiding then we can definitely weave! So here are two areas that I want to plant my Harakeke\flax.
