Tae kwon do

Hello bloggers, this week at Thursday 17th August, Waitemata did a program on tae kwon do.
 The tae kwon do program started on week 1 but that time, it was on Wednesday. On week 2, we did a competition known as the power punch competition. It was about how you had to punch an empty bag and we did two competitions. It was about who punches and lands the furtherest and who slides the furtherest. 
The next week, we did a warm up about relays, we had to stay into 5 groups, then we had to do push ups 5 times and we had to tag the next person. After that, we did the scissor kick competition. The tae kwon do teacher held an empty bag above our height and we had to scissor kick it. You kick it too low, you are out.
I think it was fun because I had never done that before. Here are some photos about the relay practice.

Commenting a good comment

Hello bloggers, this week for cyber smart, Gerard set us a task to make a good comment. We practised in a commenting template, we wrote about positive, thoughtful and helpful thoughts. We also did a question one where we have to write a question. I looked at room 9 May road school and I screenshot-ed their blog post about the cook islands national anthem. This was my work. I found this easy because I knew what class to pick.

Maths creation

Hello there bloggers, this week for maths we created a mini tent. We created by using tooth picks and modelling clay. We created this because I think we wanted to be creative. The problems I encountered were that I couldn't get a clear idea at the beginning but i began to understand while I was doing it. But after a few minutes, it began to fall because it was either  it stayed there to long or not enough strength. I also had fun because I think I made a creative tent. I found out that you can stick toothpicks into modelling clay. The shapes I made were triangles, cross and a cone. This was my creation.

Puncuation work

Hi there bloggers,
This term, the teachers of Te Waka Ako have set new tasks 
for us this term. It is something called the literacy tumble, the
literacy tumble is a set of tasks that we have to do every day (Except
Friday) between 9.05 - 9.30 or 9.30 - 9.55.  I've only done one of them, so this
is my work. My work is about putting the commas in the right place. I found this work easy and
I am still working on them.

Hi there bloggers, a few weeks ago, Mr Ross told Waitemata we could do a passion project if we wanted to...we all wanted to. A passion project is that you put all your hobbies or things you like to a google slide. This was my passion project.

Painting the town personal response

Hi there, this week for reading, we read a book journal called 
painting the town and we red the book before up the pipe
and the worlds water is running out. The town was based on
Christchurch, the city that always have earthquakes. So the book was
about almost half of Christchurch's were toppled and everyone is sad. So artists decided to 
paint the town to lift the people's spirit up. So top secret (reading group) did an
personal response about what we liked, questions etc.
This is my response.

Compare and constrast map

Hi there bloggers. This week for reading, we have been reading two books/Journals. The books were named up the pipe and the worlds water is running out. Those two books/Journals were based on the environment about water and sludge. One the books, Up the pipe, Waitemata, my home group, made soap by following the steps in the book! So we did a compare and contrast map that shows the differences and similarities between the two books. This was my map.
