Paige - I like To Move It!

Have you ever been to a Immersion assembly when it is your first day back at school other Term 2, Term 3, or Term 4?
Well I am going to tell you one about a Immersion assembly that my school had for the first day of term 2. Also we found out what each team did for this term. This immersion assembly was on  Monday 30th April 2018.

The theme for this term is called I Like To Move It! Also all of the teams are doing a different thing including the experiences compared to theme I Like To Move It! Topic. So overall all of the teams in the school is doing some different things compared to physics and the theme topic which is I lIke To Move It!

I would or I would hope that we would have learnt about making our own creative things using things that we could find in our environment. Also if it was this type of thing it would be called Creative Work And Things.

The team 4 topic is all about making your own creation and how to fly this either using, engines, or making, and using your imagination. The team 4 movie was very cool also it was about the competition that each person who entered had to make a type of flying creation, creating things that they can use with their  imagination.

I think that the theme for this term is awesome because it is going to help us learn about physics. Also I feel very happy and excited about this term because we get to learn about physics and I have never tried that before so it is a good experience for me.

WALT: recount an event in a descriptive and engaging way

Jump! Reading Activity.


Questions from the reading 

Who are the main characters in the story?
Pania, Matiu, and Uncle Hone.

What are they standing on at the top of the building?
See through and clear thick glass.

Do you think standing on this would be scary? Why/why not?
Yes, because it feels like that you are going to drop out of  West Building.

How high up were they?
They were 292 meters high from the ground.

What are some of the things that they could see on the ground?
They could see people that are like little ants, Grandma’s house, the harbour, and the stadium

What happened to Matiu? How was he feeling and why?
Matiu was feeling a bit dizzy and he felt like fainting because he was looking from all the way to the ground.

How come Matiu couldn’t jump off?
He could not jump of because he was too small for the harness and because you have to be at least 35 kilograms to fit in it.

Why do you think it would be a good idea to have a weight or height restriction?
Because they just have to check if the harness can fit you and see if it is all tight IF you can fit it. Also they have to see if you jump the right way and if you would want to do it.

What tower is the one in the book similar to?
The West Tower is similar to the Sky tower in New Zealand one of the highest and biggest building in the world.

What did Matiu do at the end of the story on the glass?
He strolled on the glass and did a 5 second haka. Also the crowd gave him a round of applause.

What do you think of the joke picture?
It looks very real and it looks very dangerous because Pania was pushing Matiu of the West Tower.

How do you think Nan will like that as  a christmas card?
Very terrified and worried about Matiu going down the West Tower when it was too big……...

True or False?
Matiu wanted to bungy jump and so did Pania.
Pania said not and Matiu said yes.
They could see the city at the top of the building.
They were look down from the tower and standing on the clear glass.
They were 295m high in the building.
They were 292 meters high in the building.
They were standing on glass floors that were like concrete.
Because there was a sign that said it is very safe and it is thick as concret too.
They all did the bungy jump off the tower at the end.
No, because pania and Matiu agrred to what uncle Hone said that if they wanted to take a fake photo in the green space. Also the fake photo was that they were standing at the bungy jump off and Pania pretend to push him of the West Tower.
Matiu couldn’t jump because he was too scared.
He could not jump because he was too small to fit in the harness because you have to be at least 35 kilograms. And he is only nearly 25 kilograms.

Alternative Ending:
“Would you guys like to take a photo” said uncle Hone, “YES!!” Said Pania and Mutiu at the same time. Wow great photo guys said uncle Hone. Really that picture is of me and Pania jumping of the West tower, when Matiu looked at the picture again he felt he's going to faint even more.

The Back To Back Competition.

Have you ever had a Back To Back Competition before? well i’m to tell you now so keep on reading.

On Tuesday the 20th of February it was time for the Back To Back Competition in Room 8 Literacy. We did this because Miss Parrant thought that It was be fun for Room 8. Also we did this competition outside of our class room on the concrete.

The instructions were to get a partner and one partner has to be a drawer and the other one has to be the talker. So the drawer got a pencil and a paper and the other one got a paper with a picture on it. So we have to do is that we have to be back to back with our partner and the drawer partner has to draw what I say what kind of shapes she has to draw. Also me and my partner was Delijah and she was the drawer and i was the talker.

Me and my partner felt excited because our teacher usually tells us what to do but we can tell eachother what to do so that was fun. So when Delijah was draw she kind of got confused because she did not know what she was drawing. Also it was a bit crazy because it was hard telling her what she had to draw and how she had to listen to me too.

The final picture looked like a kitten made out of shapes. I would change the shapes and make it a bit bigger and a bit more smaller. Also I would change some of the shapes to another shape too.

So that was the cool Back to Back Competition hope you like reading it. Also the competition was a lot of fun so thank you to Miss parrant for providing this fun event for us.

The Duffy Assembly Recount.

WALT: Use interesting words to make your recount more exciting

Introduction: Have you ever had a Duffy Assembly before at you school? Well I am going to tell you about right now so keep on reading. On Wednesday it was time for  a Duffy Assembly at Point England school. Our Duffy assembly started right after lunch in the school hall. Teams 4 and 5 went to go and see this Duffy Assembly for the rest of the day. The actors for the show was Frankie, Molly, and forest there acting names were Melanie,Ashley,and Duffy. There Duffy show was all about the Halloween Bully.

Body 1: So first we made our way to the school hall and sat in our 2 maths lines in front of the stage and the actors. Then when everyone was seated down Molly, Forest and Frankie told us 3 simple rules before the show started. Then when have discussed the 3 rules the show began to start.

Body 2: The Duffy assembly was about The Halloween Bully. They were acting out a story from a book and it was about a ghost bullying a skeleton that had nothing in side of her. Also in real life a girl named Duffy read that story and there were bullying just like the story. So Duffy had a big soccer game coming up and she and her friend Ashley were always playmates. But they are not in the same classroom Ashley is with a girl named Melanie. Ashley always bully her and she always steal her lunch most of the days. So that was what the story about and that was what they acted out for the Duffy Show.

Body 3: My favourite part from the show was when Duffy stand up for Melanie when Duffy caught Ashley bullying Melanie. Also my other favourite part was when Ashley apologized to Melanie after what Ashley has done to Melanie.  The main message was not to bully people.

Conclusion: I learnt not to bully people around you or at school. I think the Duffy show made me feel ashamed at first my now that they are all friends it made me feel happy and great.
