Whanau Tangle pattern writing

Class 1 and Class 5 decided to make a very interesting tangle pattern. We all worked on it on the first day of school.  Miss paget went on this person blog and found this tangle pattern and asked the owner if she could use it and he said yes. Our goal is to make the same exact tangle pattern and send it back to the person who actually made this tangle pattern and post it in his blog.

Ms Paget handed everyone a piece of paper. We grabbed the piece of paper that said G because it was small and easy to get finished. Sione made a random pattern because he was rushing so he could get on to his next task. Leka made a very awesome pattern its got very cool diamonds things in the middle.

You can’t see where the tangle pattern starts and ends. It goes under and over all the patterns. Sione’s pattern is not up the WHANAU PANUBA TANGLE wall because he didn't put enough effort to his tangle piece. Leka’s TANGLE piece is up on the wall with the others cause he put a lot of effort and hard work to his piece.

Cross country

Cross country was confirmed on Thursday, and everyone got into their house colors. Feeling nervous I was still thinking of me finishing last while everyone looking at me. Mr Burt called us to the starting line. I felt energetic when I was standing at the start line.

Mr Burt clapped the red wooden block to start the race. I didn't hear Mr Burt clap the wooden block so I didn't start running until I saw the boys in front of me’ OH NO’’ then I took off as fast as I could to catch up to my friends.

I ran 1 long lap around Pt England without walking .On the second lap I started walking for a little while until I catch my breath then I continued. When I saw the finish line I sprinted the whole way. I felt energetic as I crossed the finished line.

When I ran over the finish I was happy the run was over ‘’ finally ‘’. After the run I went for a long drink of water. Overall I thought cross country was fun, But also challenging.

My mascot is {Rocket Kiwi}

The next Commonwealth games is going to be played in New Zealand so our job is to create our own mascot. As you can see my mascot has already been created.

The reason I designed a Kiwi is because it represents new zealand. I chose the name Rocket Kiwi because he has rockets on his shoes. He has these rockets to fly around the crowds at the Commonwealth games. He has the New Zealand map on his shirt to show that he is the New Zealand Commonwealth games mascot. He is also holding an L&P bottle. I chose an L&P bottle because it was invented in New Zealand.  I made him hold an L&P bottle so when he tired he would drink L&P. Rocket Kiwi’s job is to encourage all athletes and check on the crowds at the Commonwealth games.

Tech @ tamiki college

Some activities from tech could be quite dangerous but still is fun. There 3 groups Food , Hard materials and Graphics . The group I was invited to was hard materials I thought this will be  interesting. Usually in hard materials all you do is carve wood but this time we got to do something with metal.

Mr grundy introduce himself to us ‘’ Hello year 7 and 8 and welcome to hard materials’’. Mr grundy show some pictures of some other people who made some metal objects. First thing we done was plan the item that we were going to design. I was planing on making a cross for my mother.  Mr grundy started to demonstrate how to cut it and carve it. I was going to make a batman logo but it was too late.........

All around the world it is important to be safe in the water Kids have struggled and panic. It is really important to stay around adults if you do not know how to swim. Make sure you get an instructor to teach you the things you need to do well you're in the water.

In 2008 there were 97 people that drowned in new zealand that why it is important to get an instructor and learn to be safe underwater. Make sure every time ask yourself am ‘’I being safe’’ ‘’am I being safe’’.

‘’When are we on the stage I’m hot’’?., Preparing for action I was waiting for Gloria to announce the tongan boys ‘’ lets give it up for the tongan boys’’., I picked up my stick my heart was pounding I was scared as I walked up the stage. I smelt my armpits ‘DAAAMM!! I HAVE B.O’, It was hard  for me to do my dance cause I couldn’t believe the smell I had but I still gave it 100%. Sione gave me playboy spay and now I’m ready for tomorrow night.

Until finally the night has come, It six 0’clock and we have to get moving to our changing room. As I walked in I was frightened every single person was ready I was nearly the only one who wasn’t change. After I got change we walked to the field to sit on the carpet it was breezy and cold everyone was screaming , shouting and cheering for their child. Waiting for my group to perform it was awesome cause all of the groups looked very cool in there costumes well their performed

‘’Lets give it up for the tongan boy’’ AAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH the crowd goes wild and my heart beats fast. Walking up the stage I felt like I was going to faint it was crazy loud. It was so loud I couldn’t even hear my self, as the leader does the first thing ‘’ READY FOR ACTION’’ the leader said in tongan ‘’YES’’ . I had butterflies in the stomach, ‘’TOONNGGAAA’’’ as our group finishes.
I think I just learnt to be confident

Fia Fia night was awesome ,Tongans around the world must be proud of us

Who is proud of myself , my family , my friends when they get an award
Who lives in Glen Innes

The definition of empathy is simple, It just means feeling for one another and showing them that you care and also thinking about someone who might be sad.

There are lots of way to show empathy but some ways could be hard if you're sad or angry , if someone is sad walk to them and show them kindness and help them and ask why are you sad. And also try and cheer up people that are sad so they are happy, so make sure they are safe.

It important to show empathy around the school and around others so people can feel like they belong in school. Everyone has the rights to feel happy not sad everyone is included.

If you're playing a game outside and someone sitting out lonely and sad, walk to him and ask ‘’ why are you so sad ’’ .‘’ are you alright come play with us ... if they ignore you and if they're too shy tell him ‘’ it alright come play with us ‘’ and if they say yes help him up and play with him
cause no one get left behind and sad.

Just remember to be kind and show empathy around others.

Swimming lesson

One burning hot day we traveled to mission bay to teach my nephew how to swim, it was me and my uncle and my nephew dereon. Getting change to go for a swim my nephew was excited he ran up and down in the water with enthusiasm , I just notice he was a bit nervous when we took him to the deep part. When we put dereon into the deep part we remembered to put on his small lifejacket.
First we taught dereon how to paddle and do strokes which was a bit easy

Then we taught dereon how to doggy paddle well you can’t touch the ground which took us awhile cause we had to take off his lifejacket

Dereon wanted to learn how to float so we taught him how to float but we had to take off his lifejacket but he said no. after teaching my nephew how to swim we played a little game witch was fun, then we got change and went home safe.
