Chinese New Year explanation

How the 12 Animals represented by China, got its ,year. A long time ago the Jade emperor chose 12 Animals to compete in a race.  

The Race began with the twelve Zodiac animals, with the rat taking ahead among all 12 animals , until there was a river. The rat couldn’t make it over the river so the rat waited until he saw the ox. The Rat jumped on the ox’s head while the ox was diving through the river. Until the moment, the rat jumped off the ox’s head and jumped through the finish line.

As the race finished by a win from the rat, the 12 zodiac Animals began as the zodiac was ordered first to last, for an example the rat was the first so the rat is the first to be celebrated for Chinese New Year, the the ox came 2nd so the ox

is celebrated 2nd than for other Animals goes for the same but in order like 1st 2nd 3rd 4th 5th 6th 7th 8th 9th 10th 11th 12th.

Now people all around the world celebrate Chinese New Year. People from different countries to come and celebrate Chinese New Year. That's the legend of the 12 zodiac animals.

The lantern festival is the last festival for Chinese new year. The Lantern Festival is a celebration celebrated by Chinese people or any culture people but is traditional celebrated by Chinese. The lantern festival is to  have prayers to who had passed away and is for well being and good luck.

For Chinese New Year we have been writing  about an explanation. Our explanation was about the 12 zodiac animals and how Chinese New Year first started. I have worked with Joseph to complete this task, The hard thing we had to do was figure out which animals came first to twelfth. I really enjoyed learning about the Chinese New Year celebration and hope to learn more late on the year.

Maths Problem

Today we had to solve our own problem solving we had made with our partner. Me and Dallas had to create our own problem solving so we could use our place value strategy's to solve it. After we had done all the writing we had to record it with screencastify. The difficult thing was that other people were talking alot and I needed a clear space to record my problem. The thing I really enjoyed about this was solving my problem because we thought very hard to solve it.

Kiwi Can Reflection

Today we had our first week with kiwi can. Our Kiwi can instructors today were Mr Matt, and Mrs Lilly. For our topic today we learnt to encourage others in sport games. For our energizer today we played move if you... the point of the game was for the person in the middle to say ' move if you ' then they had to ask their question. After our energizer we were talking about what the word ' encourage ' means. We said that encourage means cheering other people on, helping others when they need help. Then for our activity we played a game called 10 second tag. For that activity we split up into three teams. Team blue, Red and green, I was in the blue team. The point of the game was to tag everyone with the ball we had without moving around only passing to one another. We had our first match against team red. Since team red wanted to start with the ball we let it to them. After a while we had won that match we got 5 players out. After that match we went to the finals. When team green and red had their match team green took it with victorious. Then we had our final match. The victory team of that match was my team, team blue. Then the other group of our class was going to have their turn at kiwi can. The fun thing about kiwi can today is that we all encouraged others to build self esteem.

Winter Olympic's comparison

For Inquiry today we have been comparing two different mascots from the winter Olympics using a venn diagram. So what we had to do was to compare the current mascot 'Soohorang' to a different winter Olympic mascot, our group decided to choose Bely Mishka. In my group there was Te pounamu, Joshua W and Me. We chose Bely Mishka because he was also one of the winter Olympic mascots. I learnt that Bely Mishka was one of the mascots in the winter Olympics in 2014 from Sochi in the city of Russia. I really enjoyed making our venn diagram because we learn't a lot about Soohorang and also from Bely Mishka.
