Finding out about coalition

Today our learning was finding out about coalition. We worked collaboratively to write a summary for coalition. A coalition is an alliance to form a government. In the New Zealand election, Winston Peters has the choice to choose National or Labour to help them fill more seats. Who ever he chooses, will determine our NZ prime minister.

The Princess Bride - Character Introduction

A couple of weeks ago LS2 did media study on The Princess Bride. After we had finished we had to make a DLO about it. I choose to do the introduction for the characters. One thing I found out was the introduction for Fezzik, inigo and Vizzini, were that they were exactly the same and there wasn't much for their introduction.

A Day at Tamaki College

The Year 8's had an experience of what it would be like at Tamaki College, if we enrolled. The first class we went to was maths, we played battleships with Mr Jones. I really enjoyed playing that game. Some people got all of their ships sunk. Some people like Eric didn't get a single one sunk. The next class we went to was Science. We were experimenting with static electricity. Our teacher was Mr Stoddard. We managed to bend water by rubbing a rod with wool.  We then had lunch, for lunch we had subway (it was delicious) and a bottle of water. The most behaved students were rewarded a 5 dollar voucher for the tuck shop. After lunch we went to English class with Mr Stevenson. We had to memorise ten words that were displayed on the screen. We also had to include pictures to go with the words. At the end of the day we had P.E. We played a game called Turbo Touch. Our P.E instructor was Mr Moyes. It was a new fun game to all of us. We all had an amazing day at Tamaki College. We enjoyed learning a bunch of cool things and we would like to say a massive thank you for letting us experience a day at Tamaki College.

Bully - Animation

Today in LS2 we have been talking about bullying. We did this because we are old enough to learn how to stick up for ourselves. If you see someone who is getting bullied, remember to help the victim or you will be as bad as the bully. If you are being bullied use your WITS. They are walk away, ignore, tell someone and stand up. I created this animation with Oh Hsen, Shannon and Daniel.

It's great to be me because I can set myself, if I continue to work hard. We had to find out a bit more about ourselves. One thing I found out about myself was that, I wanted to do really well in college. We then, got into groups and made a word cloud on why it is great to be the age we are currently(11 - 13).

Capitalisation DLO

In my writing we had to complete a task on capitalisation. I found this task very easy. I also enjoyed this activity. One thing I found hard this activity was if the places mention was relevant enough to be capital letters.

Today at tech we finally finished our clock designs. Everyone got their designs painted. Today most people only had a little bit to paint left. After we painted it, we got our side pieces glued. Mrs Anderson and Ms Ferguson, placed the mechanism on our clocks. This is my final design for my clock. I am looking forward to our next rotation.

Writing - Apostrophes

For writing today, we have been learning the two different apostrophes. Our first task was to complete the contractions. I found this task very easy, because I managed to complete it within 5 minutes. Our next task was to show the possession. After we had finished that we had to do our task on capitalisation. The last thing we did was chose one to blog about. I decided to choose this because it was the easiest.
