Student Led Conferences

On Wednesday Te Ngahere had a Student Led Conferences. We made a google drawing to evidence our Learning this is all the things I put on to the google drawing  writing, maths, reading, art, inquiry and Te Reo Maori. I think I rather it be a parent Interview then a Student Led Conference because I am not used to it being a Student Led Conference.

Waitangi Treaty Grounds ^-^

Last week on Tuesday Paihia School went on a school trip to Waitangi Treaty Grounds. All the Juniors left school first in the morning and came back in the afternoon, then the seniors left school at lunch and came back when school was finished (Yay!) When we were there they taught us new games and showed us how to plant trees, it was so fun. It was so fun going to Waitangi.

Fidget Spinners

Last week Te Ngahere and Te Maunga made some Fidget spinner art. We were learning to use, all the space on A3 piece of paper, crayon and dye. We also did and fidget spinner story my goal was to use a correct structure for a persuasive piece.

Should fidget spinners be allowed to be used at school and in the classroom?

WALT: use a correct structure for a persuasive piece.

Hi my name is KIana and I am going to be talking to you about fidget Spinners. I think that you shouldn't have your fidget spinner in the class but you can have it at school.

Firstly, you shouldn’t have your fidget spinner in class because it will distract you from your learning because when you are trying to do your work and you have a fidget spinner in your hand you won’t be focusing on your: Writing, Maths, Reading or Blogging, you would be to caught up on trying to spin it or do tricks with it (NO!)  

Secondly, having it in class is a (AH?) No and having it in school is ok why, because having it at school you can play with it at Lunch and Morning Tea then you can do tricks and all the things you do with fidget spinners.

Thirdly, using a fidget spinner in class is a no example if you were doing a reading test and you only have till lunch and you are spinning your fidget spinner you will not get an important test done, and if you don’t get it done it’s going to be a big (oh, o).

In conclusion fidget spinners should not be allowed in class it’s a really good distraction but a fun toy to keep you distracted, but should be allowed at school.

Recount Making Ice Cream!

On Friday Te Ngahere made nice ice cream, because we had 100% right in our Learning Plans. Then on Monday we had to write a recount about how we made the ice cream. We worked in pairs and I worked with Lesane.

Monday 19th June 2017

WALT: Semicolons, Adjectives, Adverbs and Metaphors.


Last Week on Friday Te Ngahere made some cold vanilla ice cream.
Also we had to have buddies and my buddy was Lesane.

First you: put one cup of cream into the bag we had to get a little plastic bag and then you have to put two scoop falls of sugar into the plastic bag, then you put ½ a teaspoon of vanilla escents into the bag then you put the bag down.  Next you get a bigger plastic bag and put some ice into the bag then put 6 scoops of salt into the bag now you put the little bag into the big plastic bag. (Make sure you close the little bag up or you will have salty and ice cream.) Now you go outside and shake it all up until it gets hard, when that is done you take the little bag out of the big bag and tip the ice out of the bag and chuck it into the rubbish then go and put it  into the fridge now for a little bit.

Now we are cleaning up the classroom getting ready to eat Ice Cream (YUM!)
We all went outside and sat down, Brodi and Alexis came and gave us all of our Ice cream bags. Then we got given success to cut a little bit by the corner so we can eat it. When Lesane gave me the ice cream bag it was so cold and salty but YUM! When I was eating the ice cream it was soft ice.

At the end of eating my Ice cream we did a big clean up in the class and a little bit outside getting ready for assembly.

The End!

Easter Celebration

I made a google drawing to show what I have learnt about Easter, because we are learning about celebrations. I made this by looking at the criteria and by collaborating with my buddies to find information.
