My Best Year Ever

Another year has pasted at Pt England School, Year 7 has gone and year 8 is to come!
This year has been the best ever we got to do everything we made movies, mtv's, write and have heaps of fun we even got to have shared lunches it's so fun in year 7 here.



My best part of the year was at the end not because it was all over it was because of the report It was so good, above in reading, at in writing, at in math it was the best report i've ever had literally I have always had a bad report but I guess I got my act together and decided to have a better year than every other year

Tapa Art

This is my tapa pattern it's meant to be brown, black, light brown or a dark yellow. I was told by a friend  that you could use any colour but she didn't say that  she was just guessing  so I completed  the wrong thing so I decided to just write about it and tell you the wrong and right way of doing the tapa art. This is what it’s meant to look like!

This has been dyed with brown dye and  dried in the sun this is what my tapa art  is meant to look like but I thought that it still looked cool even though it is  the wrong way to do a tapa piece of art. My tapa art represents the  pardarnus leaf it is sharp it has shaded pieces to show the curves. My art is part of nature and in this nature means peace!!

Going To The Auckland Museum

Entering the museum was awesome we walk in and sat down on the floor. A lady and a guy walked over and introduced themselves "hi I'm Julian and I'm Zack today your going to see very old art work  and a whole bunch of old things so enjoy your time but the are a few rules we need to cover so first rule no leaning on the glass and no running but most in important rule you have to have fun that all enjoy your time bye" "1 2 3 !!thank you!!" we all said Mrs langitopu came and said we had to go up  to the Kai room and have morning tea "mmm mmm mmm yum"


We had finished our morning tea  and gone down to the main part of the museum , went to the bathroom  and got in our groups when we were all together we went on to do our 1st activity. First up the Maori carving  plot we had to draw or write things made with like flax's and feathers anything to do with things that they  used back in the days to make bags,closes,cotes and anything you can think of that they could  have made.

Then more on though the museum is the pacific part and where have to an interesting piece of art or carving to draw  and i drew a knife that was carved as  a person with a big long blade that looked very sharp. After i drew that i drew a mat made from flax's and feathers it was hard.

Then we went to the main part of the museum and had lunch and then we went outside and did our photo challenge  in the domain. My group went in to the hot house  and I ended up sneezing so much I almost fainted but the whole day was really fun all because of my mum.

tangle

Art Attack! I wanted to know what the teachers were on about , I walked back to my class and sat down.

My first activity was passed out, it was a tangle.  ‘What’s a tangle?’ you may ask well your about to find out!!


First  you need a tangle a tangle is a pattern that mean's combined as one. Go online to find  some idea’s to create. Then once you found  it you have to start  finding or creating a pattern for your tangle so play around with different shapes lines maybe even cultural art then once you've of the design draw in lightly in pencil on your tangle piece then with your favorite colors go round outside on your design and make it full colour now combine the tangle pieces and if you did the same as me it should look like this!

I think that this is one of the best tangles you would have made.

YR 7 Girls Mtv Movie

video
Here's our movie about "THEY DON'T REALLY CARE ABOUT US" enjoy.

Cross Country

Standing on the sideline the year 7 girls were called up to run. Only being able to help give out water is not really fun. Hanging with 2 friends a boy and a girl one was injected and one was plan out annoying.

Suddenly a big !!Bang!!  came from the field the girls were off racing down the field round the bend out the gate and in a split second they were out of sight no long to be seen but we could see the first year 6 boys came in through the finish line and over and man they looked so tired I grabbed the hose turned it on and sprayed it all over them I had the laugh of a lifetime they were dancing in the water they crabbed a drink of water and when to sit down.

Another group was called up to round “on your marks get set !BANG!” they were off down the field round the bend and out the gate the year 7 girls came in down the field round the bend to do there  second lap  of the race. “Go girls” everyone cheered. the last lap was over and they were so happy to be finished.

I was so proud of everyone “well done “  I said as they came over to get there water they smiled in a way of saying thanks!!

Self Mangeing

Do you know how to manage yourself? Well self managing is important to young children as they are on there way to becoming young adults. You are starting to become reliable, resourceful, resilient, and have a can do attitude so your work start is up to high standards. You are now understanding instruction and are on a roll to become a young adult.        

In the classroom it is important for everyone to manage their self so you can get a better opportunity of learning with others. When I'm in the class self managing looks like people completing their tasks, finish it of problem and striving to succeed.

In the street ( A place where the our year 7 and 8 senior’s work) managing yourself looks like working with other people while with your friends. And when we do go of task I bring them back into work mode and we keep working.

Drug's

Not everyone is made for drugs

Not all drugs are med’s not everyone is made for drugs that’s why when you get offered them you should stay well away from the person that offered them to you as they may be harmful to you in many different ways. The reason is you brain is not fully developed until you are 25/30 years old.

This is me explaining why it is inportint to swim

Did you know that in New Zealand if their was a world flood that our country would be one of the first  to be destroyed and that is because we are the smallest country in the whole world we will be the first to go under  that’s  why us  kiwi’s have to learn how to swim and if we don’t get off the couch and do something about it we're going to end up dead? “so” you may say well just putting it out there  but if you don’t learn to swim well it ain't go to look  good so going on kiwi’s get off the couch and go learn to swim know.


If you live in Glen Innes there is a pool right in the middle of Point England School and Tamik college it’s called the (GI YMCA POOL) and it helps you to swim and and teachers you to swim so if something happens to the world you will be safe.
Ok think about it like this way, what would do if you were caught a tsunami and it a big wave caught you and you didn't know how to swim just

WHAT IS

What do bat's and dolphins use to talk or locate?

Bat's and dolphins use echolocation to test were their prey is  and to see where they are going. 

What is echolocation?
Echolocation is the use of sound waves and echoes to determine where objects are in space. Bats use echolocation to navigate and find food in the dark.


How dose echolocation?
The echolocation works by the bat's chirping and as they do this it bounces of the walls or anything to that is flat and it tells them were to go and were there prey is.

Writing about sound

This is my groups first attempt on writing about sound.

Like many terms of science sound has different meanings like high or low visions and unpleasant sounds. The are vibrations like guitar strings going back and forth in your ear.Our brains hear sounds like mechanical waves matter this is because of the energy in the air that sends a wave of  sound like the sea crashing into the cliff.

EMPATHY WRITING

Empathy is about sharing and feelings and being kind our school policy is to put your self in there shoes and this is part of an idea to take care of other people because if there's no caring there's no help and if there's no help there's  no empathy and with out empathy there's no real way in the world!

If you  want to show empathy you should go up to someone that's sad and say 'would you like to play with me or would you like to work with us?' If you do this it will help you to get along in school at work  and even on the playground.

Empathy is not about love and hugs.It's about sharing and being nice that's why you have empathy. Maybe you should tire it.

Being empathetic out in the playground is by seeing someone fall over  and you go over help them up and ask them to play with you our  by saying are you ok do you need help with anything.

Whenever or wherever you are show empathy and be nice to other people.

Adding Detail

WALT :Add detail to a sentence
          use more interesting vocab
I was  feeling so excited because it was the first day of school and then that afternoon when  I was  told we were going to be doing sciences.  I was feeling even more excited about it because I hoped we were going to be doing  it.
