Text Response

This week Maugakiekie had to read some text and respond to the text. this is what we had to respond to. Do you think it is a good Idea to learn you r timetable through songs Why/ or Why not ?

My opinion: This is my response I think it is a GREAT!!!! idea to learn our timetable through a song because people really like listening music and you would have a lot of fun  making it to. 

Prof from the text:
I also think it is a good Idea because when people like a song it is really easy to learn a song and if a song has your times tables in them they would learn there timetable. Just like the ABC song it teaches you your ABC's. scientist have also researched that pairing music and rhythm and pitch  it can also raise your learning because music intend to help us pay attention it can also make boring activities much more amusing.

Drama Recount

This morning room 10 did something different. Something that we don’t usually do on normal mornings , instead of doing writing like a normal Tuesday we did a cool activity that we now have to do a recount about. So this is how it went.

This morning we had team assembly as we usually do on a normal Monday morning. But we had it on Tuesday because we had a labour weekend. So we had a normal assembly then we had S.S.R as usually, you’d think it just a typical morning in room 9/10 but then…..

When room 10 literacy was called to the mat things started to change. We watched a video of Mr bean and we talked about how he acts without using his voice. Some people thought it was funny but me and Levonah didn’t.

After the video Miss West told us to go and line up outside so we could go to the top  field which we don’t usually do on most normal mornings. Anyways we lined up and waited to see what crazy activity awaited us on the field.

When arrived on the field Miss West told us to form a circle. A lot of people thought that we were going to play duck duck goose but we didn’t get our hopes up too soon because Miss West told us it was too wet. We got into a circle and waited for Miss West’s instructions.

As we listened to Miss West instructions I saw that my legs had started to get goose bump. Then I started to clatter my teeth I tried to stop myself but it was really hard. So I pop my hands and mouth into my jumper. It helped a little but I was still cold.

Miss West told us that we were going to do a little drama without using our mouth. This is what we had to do. One person would stand in the middle of the circle pretending to play a sport when Miss West would say FREEZE ! The person playing the sport would have to freeze in whatever position they were in.

Then another person would come in and then change the position from a sport to something else. It was really funny. Because Jedida did this funny act were Amira was running away with money when Jedida came in and made it look like they were lifting weights.

After the second person has changed the act the first person would leave and the second person would freeze in the position they are in. Then another person would come and the they would do the same thing. So that what we did for a little while.

Then we did this another activity where we all had to get into a group of three or four. I was in a group of three with Amira and Ayvah which was funny because I was the only person that started with Z.  Anyways we had to make a scene with our group then someone from another group had to guess what it was.

Amira got this cool Idea were she would steal money from Ayvah then I would be a cop who would chase after Amira. It was really funny especially when Pisi said that we were playing hide n seek and Ayvah was peeking and me and Amira were running to hide.

When we were doing this activity I didn’t really feel comfortable because I have been told and I do think that I am not really a good actor. I did like this activity but I didn’t really like the environment we were doing it in.

The call of the conch

This week the group Maugakiekie did a comprehension task it is a true or false quiz and here is the quiz we had to find evidence in the text to support what we were saying it was fun when we talked about the question in a group and it was fun figuring out the right answers.

Immersion Assembly

This morning I hopped out of bed and got ready for school. Do you know why? Because it was the first day of Term 4. When we arrived at school I said bye to my sister as I bumped into Aaliah one of my old friends. I gave her a big squeeze okay I know it was a bit over the top but we hadn’t seen each other for 2 whole weeks.

Anyways we walked for a while and we found my cousin Farah we walked to the breeze and found what the theme for this term was MUSICAL MADNESS. At first I had no Ideas what that meant and how did it relate to kaitiakitanga i nga wa katoa english translation we are guardians of the people and environment around us.

When the bell rang the fun really started. We all entered and said hello to all of our lovely teacher I gave Mrs Buchanan a hug as she greets us with her friendly smile. Then I give Miss West a hug and went to say hi to all my friends which to some time. Especially  if I give each of them a 20-30 second hug. The bell rang and I went to line up.

When we arrived at the hall I saw that most of the teacher had really groovy hair styles. They also had headphones, bongo drums, normal drums, ukuleles and mirankers it really was a site to see. I sat down excitedly ready to see what the first Item was.

The first Item had the teachers playing snap and they decide they should listen to some music. They played all kind of songs. These are some of the songs they played. The first song that was really funny the second song  was really scary the last song was just right. It was a bit like Goldilocks.

The second Item was kind of like show where  all the instrument work together as a team. They started with Miss Gastion playing in the jungle on a ukulele and then Miss Naulder came and joined in. She played her instrument followed by Miss Tumahai. Miss Peck came on last but went of stage first. My Favourite Groovy hairstyle was Miss Gaston’s.

The next item was from team 3. It was about using music to tell a story. They did this funny movie where they changed their speech into part of a song. It sounded like they were singing their conversation. My personal favorite is the part where Miss Eadie Miss King and Miss Davis come in and they changed  the speech and it was like they had sung it’s just me myself and I.

Next it was the Fourth Item was from the teacher of team 4. They did this super cool video sitting in the car listening to music and whichever music they played they would have a different reaction. My favorite part was in the end where Mr Jacobson was in his van looking at the other teachers.

The last Item was team 5 my sisters in that team you might know her from my earlier stories. Anyways team 5 did this act where they had a family night and they watched movies. When the  movie changes the expressions on the family’s faces changed.  I didn’t have a favourite part in this movie because I liked all of it.

Wow this was one heck of a show I can’t wait to see what adventure awaits us in the future as we learn create and share with each other.
