How to write an Etiquette Email

Today for cybersmart, we had to make a DLO on email etiquette. For those who don't know what email etiquette means, it means having good manners and more when sending an email. Next time I write an email to someone I will make sure I have email etiquette. Today I learnt that when you're applying for a job and make a mistake in your email, you won't get the job.

WInter and Summer Solstice

Today Shannon and I have made this animation explaining what Winter and Summer Solstice is. Shannon and I had to make sure we got the timing and information correct. I enjoyed doing this because I learnt lot's of new things about Winter and Summer Solstice. Another thing I learnt was how to make an animation. This was really fun making my first animation.

Winter Solstice: Saturnalia

Shannon and I made have made this DLO about Saturnalia, which is a winter solstice celebration in Italy. Countries all over the world have winter solstice.  Countries have these celebrations because it is the marking of a new beginning in there country, where they can grow new crops and harvest the grown crops.

Matariki: The Seven Sisters

This week to celebrate the Maori new year we have been doing inquiry that links to Matariki. In this task Shannon and I had to listen to a video called Matariki and the seven sisters, and then answer the questions we were given.

Panmure Bridge School: Blackout Day

Today, to celebrate the Lions tour Panmure Bridge School had a Blackout Day to support either the Lions or the All Blacks. For Blackout Day I supported the All Blacks because I think they are the stronger side. First off we sang the song Tu Tere Mai. Then after that, the Kapa Haka group did there Haka while LS2 held up a sign for the people who play in the All Blacks. Next the whole school had to gather up on the field and spell out All Blacks. Everyone was given a number from 1 to 9 nine. If you were given a number you had to go and stand on a spray painted letter. To make sure we did it perfect Mr Wong flew a drone above us to see. Lastly we all formed a big circle on the courts to pass a rugby ball.

In this graph it shows the amount of rubbish that the Auckland Council Community has found. It shows that there was a lot of snack food packaging. It also tells us that auto parts were the less amount of things that were found.

Dance Evaluation

Today we have been adding to our dance routines. To help us evaluate Mrs Anderson filmed our dance. In my opinion my group needs to work on timing and working together. I think we did good on do the snake move, and it was my favorite.

Choking - First Aid Instructions

Today we read a book called buttons. It was about a lady called Mrs Law and her kids. When she went to get the phone she accidently spilt the button container. Then after she got off the phone she noticed her daughter Hannah coughing and her face turning red. Mrs Law thought that she was choking on a button. But when she went to the doctors, the doctors said that there was a button in the fold of her dress. Then after reading that we had to make a poster on what to do when someone is chocking.

Why Every School should should have Worm Farm

Today for inquiry I have created a DLO on reducing the food waste that goes in landfill. We had different options to choose from and the option I had chosen was worm farms. A worm farm can help in lot's of different ways. It can help with making compost, then you don't have to go and buy compost. 

Maths Problem: Shopping Spree - 2

Today for our second activity Tiava and I had to make our own maths problem and share it with another pair so they can try and solve it. We used our fraction and percentage skills to come up with these equations.

Shopping Spree

Today for maths our group was working on fractions and percentages. In pairs we had to solve 7 questions. Four questions were on percentages and the other the were on fractions. For me I found that finding out the discount prices was the hardest.

Read Theory

Today for read theory I read a book called El Cadejo. It was about two El Cadejo. There is a black Cadejo and a white Cadejo. The white Cadejo is friendly and will not harm you, but the black Cadejo will try to hurt you. The El Cadejo only comes out a night. I had to answer 7 questions about the book. I think I did really good because I got all the questions right. By getting the questions right, I earned myself 41 knowledge points. I learnt that the white Cadejo will lead to to safety and will get you far away from dangerous animals.

Public Nurses can be found in lot's of schools and our the community. They are important because they help us when we have a sore throat or skin sore.

The Lemur

For reading this week we read a book called Jungle quest. It had lot's of different types of animals that live in Madagascar. After reading it we had to make a DLO on one of the animals. I chose the Lemur. I chose the Lemur because I interested on how the Lemur looked like. My favorite feature of a Lemur is the tale because it has good looking stripes. I learnt that ring tailed Lemurs spend a lot more time on the ground than any other species of Lemurs.   


For Samoan Language week Freeman, Ofa and I did this Dlo on Samoan Tatau. We could choose between Tatau and Kirikiti. The Tatau is Samoan tattooing and the Kirikiti is a cricket sport in Samoa. We chose Tatau. I had fun learning about Samoan Tatau. Our group had to look for facts on the Samoan Tatau.
