Bridge Building

For the past two weeks Ms Kirkpatrick's inquiry groups have been building bridges out of spaghetti, it sounds simple but it really wasn't because we needed to: Draw up a plan, tie spaghetti together with rubber bands, add tape to everything and also tie everything together with string. Other problems didn't help the production much either, like the sudden shortage of rubber bands and spaghetti. My group had four people in it, Fraidoon, Carl, Joseph and myself. Near the end of the week my group only had three walls so instead of having a rectangle we just connected two to make the sides, so we then had a triangle which is a stronger shape. When it was weighing time the block that could distribute the weight of the bricks wouldn't fit so instead we needed to use the hook, which wouldn't distribute the weight at all, therefore one piece of the bridge would be under lots of strain and the pieces next to it wouldn't be able to help much. After six around about one kg bricks our bridge broke. I had lots of fun whilst building my bridge because since I'd kept some rubber bands from the first day, whenever we were low on spaghetti we could just go and trade for more.

Book Review

Today for reading we needed to get in to our groups and present our slideshows on the books that we'd read. We needed to explain the theme, the setting, our overall review and other parts related to the book. After we'd explained the work that we'd done our next task was to explain why we did/didn't like the book and who the main characters are as well as where the story is set.

Bridges Explanation

Our task this week and last week for writing was to write an explanation on why people build/built bridges, we also needed to add colons and write at least three paragraphs as well as the introduction and conclusion. Since our topic for inquiry this term is structures I already knew a lot about bridges so this was easier to write.


Why Do We Build Bridges?
Bridges, they’re those long structures that we always cross to get from one side of
something to another. Ever since the medieval ages, bridges have been used for
transportation and settlement.


Since most people couldn’t swim through a fast river whilst holding their horse and
belongings, some smart person thought up a way to get across the water. Other
reasons as to why going through a river was bad are: They might be swept away
by the rapids, and if they didn’t dry themselves off in time they might catch the flu or
pneumonia.


Bridges can help with many things, people always used them. Due to continuous use
bridges sometimes broke. So instead of increasing the quantity of bridges people
decided to increase the quality. They began to use materials like: Iron, Brick, Stone,
Concrete and Steel.


There are many different types of bridges, some of them allow boats to go under
them, whilst others swing open for them. Some of the first bridges were built in 850
BC and since then thousands, if not hundreds of thousands more have been built.


So, the main reason as to why we build bridges is pretty simple, for transport. Some
might argue that they’re mainly used for settlement but they need to transport their
items to settle somewhere else.

Billionaire Boy - Novel Study

For the previous three weeks Ofa and I have been reading and studying the book Billionaire Boy, which was written by David Walliams. Ofa and I have learnt different skills whilst reading this book like identifying the theme. This book was written to entertain us because it doesn't have real life facts or try to change our thoughts about the characters. I really liked this book because it's a tale of friendship and lots and lots of money.

Kiwi Can

This week for Kiwi Can we were learning about perseverance, when you persevere you don't give up on what you're doing, no matter how hard or frustrating it is. One example of persevering is when you play a sport, your team might be losing the game but no matter what you keep going, We also played two games, for one of them one person needed to try and tag other people, when they tagged the other person they both needed to link arms and then keep tagging others until everyone was tagged and there was a big line. The aim of the other game was to get an invisible ball from one side of a court to another without being touched by the other team.

Mixed Numerals And Improper Fractions Conversion


Today as an extra task from the teacher Jeremiah, Miki and I were tasked with creating a DLO that explained how to convert mixed numerals into improper fractions. We also needed to add in a picture of the game that we were playing because for the game you need to convert mixed numerals into improper fractions. If you'd like to test your own skill with converting the two then play this game But remember to simplify.

Three Exponents Questions - Maths

 

Our maths session today was used to revise our knowledge of exponents and to introduce it to some students who were previously in Learning Space One. Exponents or powers is a shortened version of writing a whole equation. For example, 4 x 4 x 4 = 64 but to simplify it you can write 4 with a little three in the top right corner. I found this activity easy as it was really easy to get used to and I did it last year. I completed the question sheet relatively fast and I really enjoyed doing this work. For this activity we put a DLO together to explain how we answered three of the exponent questions. I worked with Jeremiah and Miki

Inter-School Rugby



Last week the yr 7/8 rugby team participated in the inter-school, along with yr 5/6 rippa and barbarian teams. In our first match we sadly lost but after that we went on to win every single match after that, once, we even won 11-2 against Saint Pius X. We all had fun whilst playing and we managed to come second. At the end of the day everyone was tired and wanted to sleep.

Virtual Reality Learning

Last week a group of researchers from the Augmented Human Lab in the University of Auckland came to use LS2 for their research with VR (Virtual Reality). The first test that we needed to do was read some small letters on one of the boards, the next test was for balance, we needed to walk in a straight line as fast as we could. After that another test was for eyesight, for it we needed to wear some special glasses and then look at a special book, if you didn't have the glasses on then you wouldn't see anything, but if you did, rough shape outlines showed up. The examiner would then point to a spot on the book and we would be told to say what we saw. Another part of the research was when they showed us a video and we then needed to answer a sheet related to it. They showed us two videos, on of them showed the very first Panmure bridge's construction and the other showed the way of transportation before the bridge. After that our task was to then re-do the sheet to see if we did any better.

Orchestra Trip

Today most of LS2 went on a trip to the Auckland Town Hall to watch an orchestra as well as a dance, the whole trip was funded by Kiwi Kapers. Whilst there we listened to three different music pieces, for the last one a group of dancers from Saint Kentigern's. I liked how the music went high and low and was also pretty loud so we could hear it well. Some of the instruments that were used are the: Flute, clarinet, harp, violin, viola, cello, double bass, drums, cymbals and the triangle.

Sensory Verbs



Today for writing our first task was to create go onto a site and then answer some questions on sensory verbs, I answered all of the questions correctly because all I needed to do was select the correct sense for the situation. If you'd like to try the test yourself here's the link. The test uses all of the senses which are; taste, sight, smell, hearing and touch. Our other task was to go through a list of sentences and place a colon in the spot that we thought it should be, I managed to put the colons in all of the right places. After that, the second part of the task was to illustrate one of the sentences.


Novel Study - Billionaire Boy

Image result for billionaire boys book

This term for reading Mrs Anderson has made reading fun for our group by introducing a novel study, for it we needed to partner up and in those partners our task was to read the same book or books by the same author and then complete tasks. This was a great opportunity for people who don't like reading to love reading. This is a fun reading task because we get to work in partners. I'm working with Ofa and together we  chose the book Billionaire Boy. We decided to choose this book because there were two copies for us. This book talks about a boy name Joe Spud who's the richest 12 year old in the world. Joe Spud is spoilt by his rich dad who owns a toilet-paper making company. He's gotten anything he's every wanted like more than 400 pairs of Nike trainers and a roller coaster in the back garden. We're still reading so we'll need to finish the book for the ending.

Bridge Comparison

For Inquiry this term our topic is structures. Today we were looking at bridges. In pairs we were to create a Venn Diagram comparing the Auckland Viaduct Harbour Bridge with the Golden Gate Bridge. My partner was Alex. I learnt that 11 people past away during the construction of the Golden Gate Bridge. Did you know that cars can't cross the Auckland Viaduct Bridge.

Maths Division Problem

Today during maths we had three pretty easy problem to complete, after we'd finished it we then needed to create a DLO on it. After that we were allowed to play this game.

How To Tell Analogue Time

This week for writing our task was to create an explanation on how to read analogue time from a clock, surprisingly lots of children and teenagers don't know how to tell the time from analogue clocks and watches. I tried to make this as easy as I could to understand so if you don't I'd suggest asking someone else.
Analogue  Time


Analogue clocks and watches aren’t hard to use, once you know how, they’re as easy
as reading digital ones.


The long and short hands both represent something, the long hand is used to show
the minutes and the short one for the hours. The long hand goes around faster than the
shorter one because minutes are shorter than hours. An example of telling the time
with an analogue clock is this; if the long hand is on the 9 and the short hand is near
the 4 then the time is 3:45.


One way to help people tell the time is by using past and to, from the beginning of the
hour to 30 minutes afterwards the usual way to tell the time is by saying ten-past,
quarter-past or half-past and the way for 31 minutes to the 60th is to; ten-to, twenty-to,
etc.

Although time might seem hard to tell using an analogue clock, as long as you know
what the hands are used for clocks shouldn’t be hard to read.

Tunnel Purposes


For inquiry Ms Kirkpatrick's group needed to first get into our pairs, after that we then needed to either research different tunnel materials used for construction or the different tunnel purposes. I worked with Fraidoon, and together we found a few types of tunnels that everyday people use. Researching the different types was pretty hard because we didn't know many tunnels.

Kiwi Can

This week in Kiwi Can we were learning more about values, we also played two games, one of them was hand-knots and the other a type of dodge ball. for the hand-knots we were separated into three different groups, each with six people. in those groups we needed to hold  the hands of two people that weren't right next to us. After that was done all of the hand should've been in the middle, on top of each other. the task from then on was to somehow untangle ourselves. My group came last for that activity. For the dodge ball game we needed to get into a circle and in that circle the we were numbered from one to four. When your number was called out you and your group needed to get into the middle and the other groups needed to work together to roll the ball into you as fast as they could.

Digitech

This week during digitech the year 7 group was just continuing on with their animated stories or games since our teacher, Miss Anderson wasn't there because she was presenting at a digital showcase. My animated story is about this girl who steals a book from a wizard and is then chased by him and his familiar. That is the only piece of work that I need to finish since I've done everything else.

Sky Tower Trip

Today LS2, LS1 and Room 5 went on a trip to the Sky Tower, since it was sponsored nobody needed to pay anything, the person who sponsored our trip's name is Douglas Bates. during our trip there we were given a challenge; on this piece of paper different locations were shown, and we needed to write the name of the location. There were also clues on the bottom of it to help us figure out which was which, another thing to help was the fact that we were on the 51rst floor. Before that though, we'd watched some videos that told us lots of interesting facts about the Sky Tower, some being: It weighs around about the same as 6,000 elephants, it takes 40 seconds to get from the bottom floor to the top, it would take 29 minutes for someone to reach the top floor by only using stairs (If they walked) and that the glass walls and floor in the observation deck are as thick as the concrete floor.

Scale Drawing - Maths Week

Last week was maths week, and for it LS2 students were doing scale drawings. We needed to first, find an image that we liked off of the internet, after that we then needed to try and enlarge that image using a 1:2 ratio for enlargement. The next step was to colour the picture, and then frame it. Since this was my first time doing scale drawing I'm pretty happy with how mine came out. The best part of this activity was the colouring in, since I could then play around with different colours to see how each of them looked on the picture. The part that I found hard was the drawing since I'm not very good at copying one thing to another. Next time the only thing I'd like to improve on is time, since I took 2 days to get it done.

Whare Hauora Opening

Last week the official opening for the Whare Hauora (Medi-Cube) happened, many important people like the head of Barfoot & Thompson and other people and companies who sponsored the construction of the room. The main aims for having the cube are to allow students to access a cost-free medical facility and also a place for school nurses to stay whilst they work in the school.

The kapa Haka performed as well.

Kiwi Can

Today during Kiwi Can Group B were learning about resilience and problem solving, resilience is our theme this term. We learnt that people can problem solve every day without knowing that they were, problem solving can be used to stop arguments, speed up decisions and other things that would most likely take time. We also played hand soccer and a rock, paper, scissors game. For hand soccer we were only allowed to use our hands to try and get the ball between the "posts" which were just two cones, and for the rock, paper, scissors game we needed to go around the room battling other people in rock, paper, scissors until only one person was left.

Thursday, 9 August 2018

Kiwi Can

Today in Kiwi Can we were learning more about resilience (Which is our theme) and goal setting (Which is our topic for this week). We also played two games, one was called Snatch, and the other Golden Child. For Snatch we needed to get into a circle, and inside of that circle Mr Matt placed some cones. We were then told to turn around so that we faced outwards, when Mr Matt said "go" we needed to turn around and grab a cone. If we succeeded in grabbing one we went into the next round, if we didn't then we were out. For the other game; Golden Child one team needed to get a basketball into the hoop whilst the other's objective was to make it from one side of the basketball court to the other without the shooting team getting a ball into the hoop.

Rugby League Inter-School

Today in the Dunkirk reserve the rugby league teams from Sylvia Park, Point England and Panmure Bridge participated in the inter-school for the sport. Since there were only three teams the decision was for every team to go up against the other teams twice. For our first match we were up against Sylvia Park, we managed to win 4-3. In our second match we were against Point England, though we sadly lost 7-2. In our third match we were against Sylvia Park again and this time we did even better, beating them 7-2. At the end of our match against Point England we improved a lot, although we still lost 6-3. Thank you to Mr Ogilvie (Who coached us), other players' parents (Who supported us) and the people in charge (For setting the whole event up).

Quad Blogging


Today for my quad blogging or tuhi mai tuhi atu I commented on Jaxon from Karoro school's blog. Quad blogging is something that LS2 has been doing with other schools to encourage us to improve our writing ability as well as our work by using the helpful advice given to us by students from other schools.

Sleep Related Words


This week for reading our task was to create a DLO on nine sleep related words, my group used links to make it easy to back and forth between the words. We all had tasks and mine was to write the definition in my own words after reading one online. I also wrote some of the sentences and fixed up others.

Career Quest


This week we've been learning about careers, we first needed to choose which one we'd want to be when we grow up and after that we needed to go onto a website called CareerQuest. On the website there's a quiz to see what you like and dislike and when you complete it a list of jobs shows up. After I'd completed it the top three jobs on the list were financial dealer, advertising specialist and a judge. The job I'd like to do the most out of the three is the last one. The qualifications for a judge are to have studied law for 3-4 years and then been a lawyer for at least 7 years. The average salary for it is between $334K and $490K.

Tuesday, 3 July 2018

M&M Research



Last week in our groups the task was to first research and then write down about M&Ms, one thing that we wrote about was the highlighted history of M&Ms. Along the way my group (Ofa, Avalon, Carl, Joshua W and I) learnt about what the acronym for M&M was, what happened to one of the founders, where the founders received their inspiration from and why they removed the red M&Ms for a decade. Along with adding in videos Ofa and I also made GIFs, mine being the one on the second slide and Ofa's the one on the sixth.

The Inchcape Rock


This week, the task for poetry was to first get into our groups and read a poem called Inchcape Rock, after that we needed to each read the verse that we'd chosen out to the rest of the class and create a DLO on the verse that we'd chosen.

Nugget Point Lighthouse


This week one of the things that I needed to do with my group was research and then create a DLO on a lighthouse from New Zealand, the lighthouse that we were given was the Nugget point lighthouse, which is located in Otago. The lighthouse is 148 years old.

CARE Award - Respect | Photo Collage



This task is one of five that I need to do for a CARE award, for it I needed to create a collage out of photos taken this far throughout the year for every subject or activity that happens regularly in school. In this DLO I added Panmure Bridge School's whakatauki, motto, logo and focus (Learn, Create, Share). I used the photos from our shared folder.

[Alex] CARE Award - Respect | Make Dinner For Your Family



This task is one of five that I need to do for a CARE award, for it I needed to make dinner for my family. At first I needed to peel carrots which took around 10 minutes, then I peeled potatoes which took around 10 minutes too, after that I cut both into smaller pieces and placed them into the pot. I then waited for a while so that the vegetables could cook until soft.

CARE Award - Respect | Interview A Person In Uniform



This task is one of five that I need to do for a CARE award, for it I needed to interview someone in uniform. The example for the task was a policeman/woman but since I didn't know where I could find one of them I interviewed the security guard in the Panmure library, I also needed to be careful with my questions because I didn't want to be rude and ask personal questions.

Tech Reflection: Digitech


This is an example of an animated story that a recreated in scratch. The components used to recreate this story include:
Spites (As characters), backdrops (To be used as backgrounds) and dialogue (For conversations between characters).
The codes that I used to recreate the story include:
Events script to start the story, looks script to enable talking between sprites, control script for pauses between events and the looks script for backgrounds.

This week in DigiTech the year 7's were linking and finishing off our leftover work, we also needed to add a few things to our Scratch projects.

CARE Award - Respect | Researching The Song Respect


Today I completed another task for my respect CARE award, CARE stands for Confidence, Attitude, Respect and Excellence and Innovation. For it I needed to research interesting facts about Aretha Franklin's song Respect. Along the way I found many new and interesting things like for example; the song's been used in the movie Forrest Gump, although I've watched it I never noticed the song.

DigiTech Project - Initial planning | Tech Reflection

In DigiTech today, we started the initial planning for our DigiTech project This included completing the following tasks:
Context Brainstorm
Planning Time frame
Conceptual Statement

The purpose of the Context Brainstorm was to identify places or things in the Tamaki area, an example would be the library or the pools.
The purpose of the Conceptual Statement was to help us choose the target audience (Age group of people) and the topic of an animated story.
The purpose of the Planning Time frame was to help us plan the time frames and stages of our animated story.
Before we did all of those tasks we played a Kahoot based on our learning objectives and conditions, when it finished I'd come third, Julian second and Mele first. The hardest task to complete was the Context Brainstorm because I needed to find images and links to websites for places in the Tamaki area.

Kiwi Can


This week during Kiwi Can we had a new topic- accountability. The definition for accountability is being able to take responsibility for our own actions, other values that go with accountability are honesty and integrity. An example of showing accountability is getting to school early, getting work done before the deadline and bringing the correct uniform to school everyday. The Kiwi Can instructors (Mr Matt and Miss Lily) taught us two games, one of them was called Copy Me, for it we were split up into four groups. We then needed to choose one person to be our leader, that person would then pick a card and based on the number that the card had the group would need to do something. Some examples for that are; Fornite dances (10 seconds), pretending to sleep (10 or 5 seconds) and running on the spot (10 seconds). The other game that we played was called fruit salad, for it Group B needed to be put into pairs and in those pairs respond to these commands if said: Green light (Swap places with partner who should be in front), Yellow light (one partner sits on the other's knee) and fruit salad (Power walking around the circle of people). We also played a game of Master G.K.Q (General Knowledge Questions) where one person had to try and make it through the circle of other people without getting a question wrong.

Silver CARE Award: Researching A Respected Leader


For one of my silver CARE awards (Respect) I needed to research a respected leader, I chose to do Gandhi because he's someone that you associate with peace and sometimes protest. I used websites like Wikipedia which helped me find interesting information about where he grew up, lived and died- I only used a small part of all of it.

Comrades Marathon Research


This week for reading one of the tasks that my group needed to do was research the Comrades Marathon, before that though, we were told to get into a mixed group of boys and girls but since there were no more girls left and only boys, my group had 3 boys and 1 girl. After we'd finished the slides I added pictures and attributed them.

Word Problems


This week for math we were given a sheet of word problems to fill out, after that we were to choose one and create a DLO explaining how we did it. For that task we were to work individually but for the next one we were able to work in pairs. To do the second task we first needed to find the amount of Liz, then Jane and so on. We needed to work it out backwards.

Reflex Activity

Last week's task was to find a pair and together, test each other's reflexes with a ruler. The way that it was to be done was one person sits down and hangs one of their arms off a table, the other person would put the ruler over the top of their hand that was hanging off. After levelling it to the top of the hand the partner would drop the ruler, the amount of centimetres that were shown above the hand that grabbed the ruler before it fell were recorded. If you missed then it counted as a zero, the lowest (Best) you could get without failing was one and the highest (Worst) was thirty. We did three tests like that, one with our eyes open, the other with our eyes closed but listening for a signal to try and grab the ruler and the last with our eyes closed but were tapped on the shoulder. Before we'd started to test however, we were supposed to write a hypothesis, my one was that I'd do best on the listening- but I was wrong. I did the best on the looking tests, since I managed to get a one. After the tests were done, we then needed to get into a group of four with another pair. Marieta and I grouped up with Sky and Jericho. The test batch that we did the best on was the second test for hearing.

Tech Reflection

This week during Digital Tech the year 7 group was learning more about coding. At the beginning Ms Anderson showed us an animated video on Scratch, after that we needed to make our own account using the first part of our email as the username and then put Ms Anderson's Tamaki College email as the account email. After that we were shared a slideshow which we needed to first make a copy of and then fill out with screenshots of us creating the Scratch project using the steps already written in the slideshow. Julian and I finished ours early so we were asked to add two more backgrounds into our animated video.

Assembly: Samoan Language Week | CARE Award: Silver Confidence

Since this week is Samoan language week, and I'm half Samoan, I was chosen to one of the three assembly presenters. The other two presenters were Junior and Angela, they did the Samoan script and I translated that to English. At one point during the script there was a mess up and, after a few seconds Junior just said what was written down on the script in English in Samoan. This works towards my silver confidence CARE award.

1877 Education Act


This week, the other task for poetry was to create a DLO based on what life was like back in the 1870s. I worked with Jeremiah, Jay-Don and Junior to create this. My group decided to do the education law that was passed throughout the country in 1877, for it we needed to research what the teachers wore and what the classrooms looked like. Jeremiah and I did the researching for the writing whilst Junior and Jay-Don worked on getting photos, I drew the second page's pictures.

Charlotte Anne


This week for poetry we were learning about a woman called Charlotte Anne, since it was back in the 1870s women were expected to stay at home, clean the house, look after the children and do all of the other chores. Unlike others Charlotte Anne wore men's trousers, wore boots and worked in a job full of men (She was a Bullocky), for the task however, we needed to watch the ballad poem about her. After that the task was to answer all of the other questions in the DLO.

Kiwi Can

Today during Kiwi Can we were learning more about our theme which was integrity and our topic which was role models. The first game that we played was one where the whole group was put into a circle and when apple was called we had to jump forwards (to the back of the person in front of us), when banana was called it was the opposite (jumping backwards), and when orange was called we needed to turn around. The other game that we played was one where we acted out people whilst being statues.

Kiwi Sport

Today during Kiwi Sport our coach was first let us play a warm up game of rippa-bull rush, after that we were sorted into three teams. Two teams stayed on and one went to the benches. My team and another team were in the first match, at first it was just us scoring a try and then them doing the same thing, but after a bit the scored two tries before the game ended whilst we only scored 1. My team was swapped out for the other team who won and then we were swapped back in, we won with around 6 and the opposition had around about 5. After that we practised more passing from side to side.

Traditional Samoan Foods - Samoan Language Week



LI: To learn about the Samoan traditions.
This week is Samoan language week and so for it half of LS1 and LS2 were grouped into two LS1 students and two LS2 students (Since the other halves were on a trip), we could choose from doing traditional events, foods, numbers and other things but my group just chose to do traditional food. We put pictures, the recipe and the ingredients in. The other task that I worked with my group of four on was this; a DLO on how to say shapes in Samoan, along with audio recordings if you click on the Samoan words.

Animal Speeds/Life Spans

This last three weeks students have been missing quite a bit of work because we were usually out of school. During catch up time Jeremiah, Ofa and I worked together to create the task above. The task was based on two graphs, The average animal lifespan and the top speed of the animals. While doing this activity we learnt a lot of new things because most statements were true and only a few were false.

Fence Posts Problem

 


Today during math time the task was to finish off any work that needed to be done (And blog it), I worked with Jeremiah to finish the problem. The equation was quite easy to figure out because all we needed to do was count the number of fences (7), the number of fence posts (8) and for every fence times 8 by 1 (Meaning, 8 x 1, 8 x 2 etc for every fence- which made us end up going to 8 x 7). After that we continued writing about how we solved the problem.

Salary Differences

 
For this task I worked with Jeremiah and together we attempted to figure the problem out, at first we were confused by the bonuses that we needed to add on every year and after that we were confused by the adding of the money, the person who made the most money in five years was Fraidoon.
