Why it's great to be me?

It's great to be me because we have the opportunity to learn new things every day, also that if I work hard in the future we will go to college and pass our NCEA exams. One thing that I learnt about myself was that one of my goals is to be a great influence on other people by setting a good example for them to follow.

Tech - Clocks

Today we have finally finished our clocks. I am really happy, the most fun thing about this was painting. I think the hardest thing was drawing the design, but I was still proud of what I did this year in graphics.

Maths DLO

This week Ms K's group is focusing on Dividing Fractions. I had a lot of fun doing fractions. I would really like to this again.

Netball inter-school

Last week on Friday it was the netball inter-school at the AMI netball grounds. When we arrived, we split up into our different groups. I was in P.B.S red. I think the best game was when we played P.B.S white. That was a really fun game and even when we lost, we all shock hands.

Rugby League inter-school

Last week on Tuesday most of the people in LS2, went to the rugby league tournament. I think that we all had fun, and learnt a lot about playing rugby league. Even when lost our games, we all went and shacked the other teams hands.

Today at tech the year 8's were learning how to use a compass. Personally for me I had a lot of trouble with using the compass. I also think that we can learn from this for the future.

Sketchnote DLO

In Reading we had to define words that are related to the Suffrage movement. We also needed to write what we know about the suffrage movement, and other questions. CJ, Oh Hsen, Calvin, Shannon and I have all worked together to complete this sketchnote. We talked about what it was and decided what we wanted to put for our answers.

Kate Sheappard

In LS2 we have been learning about the suffrage movement. After we had found out what is was we had to make a DLO about Kate Sheppard, because she was the leader of the Suffragettes. After we had included the information, we had to write our own question. We came up with the questions together as a group. The last task was to find the answers to our questions. My group (Oh Hsen, Shannon, Calvin and CJ) have learned a lot more about Kate Sheppard.

Rewindable learning

Today LS2 were practicing our dances for our production. We were using rewindable learning, we were able to look at our videos that Mrs Anderson took to help us practice learning our dance moves. I am really looking forward to performing our dances at the production, our dance is I see red.


Today for writing I have made a DLO about Idioms. We had to provide examples of Idiom, and illustrate one of the examples. Today I have chosen to illustrate Call it a day, it means it's time to quit. I have really learned something new about idioms, I think that will really help me.

Winter Learning Journey Awards

At assembly today, Rachel came to award us for our efforts in the Winter Learning Journey. A lot of people from LS2 received certifies and prizes. I had fun doing these activities in the Winter Learning Journey, I had completed all of them but one. There were six top bloggers from our school they were, Daniel and Oh Hsen who came first, AJ and Alex who came second and Ofa and I came third. I can't wait to take part in the Summer Learning Journey. I would like to say thank you to Rachel and her team for blogging with us during the holidays.


Today at tech, most of the year 8's have started to paint our designs. Before we were up to do that, we had to draw our design, then laser cut the design. I really like that everyone has finished their design and are up to painting. Next week most of us are up to doing our second coat of paint. I think that this will be really fun.

Suffragette Movement - 25 Word Summary

In reading we have been learning about how woman got their equal rights, by going through NZ's timeline. We then watched a video of what the suffragette movement was. While we watched the clip we were making notes. We needed to understand what it was by talking with our group. The last thing we did was write a 25 word summary with our group. I have worked with Shannon, CJ, Calvin, and Oh Hsen.
