Volcano Animation

This term we have been studying volcanoes. So to show what I have learnt about Mt Wellington I have created this animation to tell you some of the things I know.

Term 2's Ending

Like stories, our school terms have endings and this term's ending is coming up in 2 days!!

This term our topic was on volcanoes and I have really enjoyed learning about how they are formed and how their eruptions occur. What I enjoyed the most about studying this topic was that we got to make our very own volcano!!

I'm kind of sad that the term is coming to its end and I won't be able to see my friends and my teacher everyday, but I'm also quite excited that the school holidays are coming up as well!!

But the good thing about the school holidays is that school will always start back up again in term 3!!

Disaster Day Preparation

Our active earth is full of natural disasters like earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and tsunamis. Most of us don't know what to do when one of these disasters happen, so what our school has created is "Disaster Day".

On this day, there will be a pretend tsunami and we will be acting out what to do when a tsunami comes and we're at school. What we'll do is walk up to our neighbouring school-Ruapotaka because they're up on higher ground then we are. This day will be taking place tomorrow on the 24th of June and I hope a real tsunami doesn't happen!!

Acrostic Poem

Sport not really my thing, but competitive I can be.

Endless talker, a motor mouth is me.

Like the weather, my mood can change.

Active and inquiring mind.

Pink is not my colour

Age appropriate for intermediate

Understanding friends problems I can do

Love to munch on chocolate

Iguanas and other animals I like

Nosy is sometimes me

Encouraging friends when support is needed.

Personal Shield Reflection

Last term we had to create something that told everyone a little about ourselves, so we created personal shields. In these shields we had to include something about our culture, future, our hobbies and we also had to draw in our name.
We started off with picking our favourite shape, mine was a diamond. We then had to draw a draft for the real thing, then came the fun bit...making the actual shield!! In the shield we drew in 4 spaces that we were going to use for our drawings/symbols.

The Tongan flag represented my culture as I am Tongan. For my name I just drew it really big and coloured it in my 2 favourite colours-green and black.

For my future I drew a chef's hat and an apron because in the future I would like to become a chef but I also drew some musical instruments because I also want to be a musician or I could even become both.

In the space for my hobbies I drew some Rasta coloured (red, yellow and green) music notes, they represented that I like to listen to Jamaican music. I drew a few cooking utensils because I like to cook in my spare time, there were also a few shoes in the picture as well because sometimes shoe shopping is what I like to do.
Last of all I drew a big 'Z' right down the middle of my space as it represented that I like to sleep...a lot!
