My last blogpost

One of the highlights of 2014 for me was the weekends because I had a lot of fun spending time with my family and doing cool activities. Another highlight for me was hanging out with friends and having fun times at camp. I will miss my friends a lot over the summer time because I have spent my whole life them. "adiĆ³s a mis hermanos" Goodbye my brothers.

On tuesday and thursday mornings the year 7&8 students attend tech at tamaki. There are three tech subjects are materials, graphics and food. Every Tuesday and Thursday we walk down to tamaki to do our tech subject. Our tech teachers are Mr Pineda, Mr Grundy and Ms Heka.

I enjoy going to tech because it gives me a chance to experience different things and have fun at the same time. Walking to tech gives me a chance to properly catch up with my friends. Every week when I walk into my tech class I feel a sense of joy.

My favourite tech subject was hard materials because Mr Grundy is funny and has weird jokes. Mr Grundy is a cool teacher because he has a different approach to teaching. And he also has cool projects.

I think that I have had an amazing opportunity to attend to tamaki to participate at tech. Having this opportunity has helped me succeed through my journey.

As I woke up early in the morning I noticed that there were drops of rain on the window. Would athletics be postponed? I was hoping so...Unfortunately it wasn’t!. Our activities didn’t start until after morning tea I encouraged myself to do it because I knew It was my last athletics at Pt england school.

Our first activity we attended was discus. I knew I wasn’t very good at it so I jumped into the non-competitive line. Our discus superviser was Ms Tito, It was fun having Ms Tito because she taught us a dance. My throw didn’t end up half bad it looked about 10-11 meters I threw it like I was Dwayne Johnson.

Mr Tele'a tatau

Our extension group has been researching the pacific to give us a better understanding of there meaning. I learnt a few new things about the tatau and how it show's what role you have in the family. I also learnt new words like the word va'a which means canoe in the samoan language. In our last extension session Mr Tele'a attended so we could see a tatau in real life so we could make examinations.

In our last extension session Mr Tele'a attended so we could see a tatau in real life so we could make examinations. I found it very interesting on what we were shown, It had incredible detail and structure. Mr tele'a mentioned that the last and most memorable part of the tattoo was the belly button.

The stage I am up to in my project would be creating my tattoo. I have almost finished my tattoo design. I think the finished design will look really good.

The campsite was called marsden bay christian camp. The grass there was amazingly green and soft. There were a few prickles but it still had nice scenery. They had these cool towering trees.

At camp there was a pretty cool waterslide it was kind of long and high. It went faster than I expected. On my first slide I reached the mud at the end. My favourite form of entry was the dolphin dive.

Another fun activity was surf education. Our instructors names were Chris and nick. Before we did anything they took us on a tour around the clubhouse. Chris took the boys and nick took the girls. We first went up to the lookout and used the binoculars then we went down to see the IRB inflatable rescue boat.

art tangle

This week we have been creating a piece of art from google. This artwork represents infinity there is no beginning and no end. My teacher chose this particular artwork because this term we have combined our class with another class and it would be a great way to start the term with art.

We first searched up a pattern to draw when we all had a day to finish our paper.

Ms Paget gave each of us a piece of paper that had lines. The only instructions we were given was to create a pattern, it could be any kind of pattern. I have created mine and the outcome of it is very good. I cant wait to learn more and create more of our art.\

There was a lot of research that went into the process. Finding a unique pattern was a little bit difficult.

Term 4 reflection

What a surprise to the beginning of the term! Our new topic is Art Attack. Our class has now combined with class 5, it has been a very crazy week since there is 60 students in one class!  

The thing I liked about the change would have to be that, the combination of classes. One other thing is that we have most of our friends so we can chill out together. And we have more space to work in.

The thing that we didn't really enjoy is that we have too many people in our class. It also is too loud to concentrate.

Walking into the street I noticed there were a lot of tables in the space. After immersion assembly we walked into the street instead of our classroom and sat in in our house lines. My reaction to the supposedly good “News” wasn't very excited or happy. Personally I dislike the idea of merging classes together.
