Kapa Haka

Kapa haka 
Today (31st August) us the Elm park kapa haka group preformed in front of the whole school and another Kapa haka group,  after our performance they performed for us , they were a bilingual class in South Auckland. They were really loud(My own opinion)something they could probably work on making they're actions stronger but overall they were great! . After that when the whole school left the auditorium the kapa haka group(Elm park's)(My group)waited for the other Kapa haka to get changed ,we sang songs and finally we got into a huge circle and we had to stand with the other Kapa haka group , we sang a song(I forgot the name)then we said the karakia and DONE!!!!

Art Exhibition : Paint my world

Art exhibition
Today (27 August 2015) We went to look at the art exhibition in the auditorium there were lots of amazing artworks there, Room 29/28 My classroom did clay wind chime's  , first we had to make six clay shapes then we had to wait for them to dry (which took long)then it was the fun part , we got to paint them , then we could splatter paint them with a toothbrush, finally we made a macrame hanger(obviously to hang the wind chime)and we hung them up. My personal opinion of my favorite art would be Room 19/20 art.

Haiku Poem : Winter

My reflection
I was learning to write a Haiku poem.  A Haiku poem is a poem about nature and it has five syllables in the first line and in the second line has seven then finally the last line has five so there's a pattern which is 575 , my first Haiku poem was about winter. My next step is to add more interesting phase's and words.

Term 3 Week 3

On Tuesday (4th August 2015) Youthtown came and we played games to practice our dribbling.  For our warm up we played a game called Shark , Ship and shore , there  we two blue cones lined up so that they were about 10 meters away from each other , the way you play is one of the Youthtlwn instructors would call out Shark , shore or ship and if they say one for example if they said shark we had to run to the middle and when we reached the middle we had to put our hands above our head so that it looked like a fin from a shark , and if they said shore we had to run to the other side of the court and wiggle our hands as if we were surfing and finally if they said ship we had to run to the opposite side of shore and when we got their we had to salute , the rules where that if we had run to slow we we're out , or if we ran the wrong way or did the wrong action we're out.  The next game we played was like Last man standing but we had to bounce a ball around , what you had to do was you had to hit someone else's ball out of the court , but if you saved the ball from going outside of the square then your not out but at the same time we still had to dribble and every time 5 people (I think) got out we got smaller smaller space which I thought was really fun , and for the last round it was me .vs Aaron we hit our basketballs at the same time and they both rolled out of the circle.

Explanation writing :Brainstrom

My reflection
For this we had to plan for our explanation writing.  I chose the topic How to make a banana milkshake.  I thought this was really fun because I learnt how to make a banana milkshake or any flavour milkshake.  My next step is to add more to the special features.
