Rhythm Interactive's Visit to PBS

Today a man called Johnny from Rhythm Interactive came and taught us how to play the Djembe. The whole school took part in this fun activity. The theme of his lesson was "Together we make change". Johnny would drum a beat and then the whole school would copy it. Johnny would also tell one side of the school to play one beat and then the other to play another, it was a competition to see who could go the loudest. LS2 helped out with the Juniors because they might not be able to do the beats properly. I really liked drumming because Johnny was funny and very friendly to everyone in the school. If you'd like to check out Rhythm Interactions the link is here.

This week for tech we were doing cooking again it is really fun in cooking but sadly a lot of people were away and missed out on some very nice food. Today what we cooked was cottage pie and it was delectable. The ingredients we used were cooked potatoes, cream, butter, mince, cheese, tomato puree, Mixed Vegetables, salt and pepper and BBQ sauce. The utensils we used were measuring spoons, bowels, knifes, measuring cups, trays, frying pan, fork, spoons and chopping boards. when we got there the teacher Miss Heka was cooking up some potatoes and we were getting told what we needed and when we needed to use the ingredient. I partnered up with Te pounamu he cut up the onions and I mashed the potatoes and we worked really well together and had a lot of fun making and eating the food.

Waltzing Matilda

We were unpacking the literary devices and language in Banjo Paterson's very famous poem Waltzing Matilda and we also were finding out different words like jumbuck witch is sheep and other things like Waltzing, Matilda, Tucker bag, swagman and billabong those were all the words that were used in the poem Waltzing Matilda. The poem was quite a cool poem because it also tells a story about the struggle of living when you have no money in the 1880's.

Maths: Strengthening Connections To Maths Language

Today, we were given a challenge that would strengthen our maths vocabulary. In the challenge, we were given a presentation with 6 boxes. These boxes were the addition subtraction multiplication division equality inequality variables and find an answer boxes. In each box we needed to drag a whole bunch of smaller boxes with a maths vocabulary word on it into the corresponding box based on what the word meant. We would like to say thank you to Whaea Donna from Manaiakalani sharing this activity with us.
