Today we have been working on our dance that we need to perform at the end of Term 3 for our dance production. Yesterday we were introduced to Zoe who was our dance teacher. Yesterday we were split into three groups group A, B and C. The group I was chosen to be in was group B. For our dance we needed to use a song, the song we used was I see red by split enz and today we needed to practice  our dance rehearsal. It was kind of tricky because that time Zoe wasn't their to help us but luckily Mrs Anderson videoed us dancing in the hall with Zoe and also we learnt how to do rewindable learning.

How maui slowed down the sun

Today Josh S and I have created a comic strip using storyboard that to practice using dialogue to show rather than tell what is happening in the story from the myth 'how Maui slowed the sun'. We found it hard finding the backgrounds because some of the backgrounds were modern and some were in the olden days. .Also the characters were really hard because I needed a island character to fit into my scene so I then I just used some stick figures.

The seven sisters of matariki

Today me and Josh S have made a DLO about the seven sisters of matariki. The seven sisters of matariki are Waipunarangi, waita, waiti, tuparagi, matariki, tupuanuku and Ururangi. The seven sisters were sent to the sky to be the seven stars of matariki. 

Winter Solstice in Australia

Today my partner and I have made a DLO about how do people celebrate winter solstice. My partner Josh S chose Australia. In Australia they go have a hot feast to celebrate winter solstice and also they go to Antarctica to dig a hole to swim in.

Black Out Day

Today we had a day called black out day in our school. We did this because we are were going to wish the All Blacks and Lions a really good match when they have their rugby game. We all came dressing up in black to support the all blacks or red to support the Lions. I came up in black because I was an All black supporter. After we had our lunch we were called to the hall to get our numbers to make the word All blacks while Mr Wong was recording it onto his drone. But before that we sang a song call Tutira mai nga iwi for the Lions tour. Next the Kapa Haka group had done a superb haka dance to support the All Blacks while AJ was leading the group. After we sang our song we were chosen our numbers then we got onto the field to spell the word All Blacks to support the All blacks team. The number I was chosen was 5 and the letter for number 5 was L. When we made the word All blacks we played a game called pass the ball. We went on the court to make a huge circle with our entire school to collaborate to pass the ball without dropping it. Thanks to Mr Oglivey for putting this altogether for us.

Rubbish in school

Today we have made a graph about how many people have dropped their rubbish in school. Our task was to make a graph on google spreadsheet then we had to put it on a google document. Yes are the people who have dropped rubbish in school and no are the people who haven’t dropped rubbish. Our teacher Mrs Anderson made a google form for LS1 & LS2 to fill in their responses. For Yes 56 people have dropped rubbish in school and for no 25 people haven’t dropped rubbish.  



Today in dance we have been recording our dance we have done. Christopher was away so I had to work with Sanujan, Joshua W and Freeman to record. I think our dance we have done was a superb job and we did really well. Our group made a few mistakes but we just need to improve our timing with the beat of the music and also we need to work on our shapes and moves.
