Taekwondo

Since the start of Term Three Waikowhai Primary School have been taking lessons for Taekwondo. Our Instructor was quite strict because you can't really get anywhere with people going easy on you. She taught our class different varieties of kicking, punching, fitness and self defense. It's a very hard but fun experience and also if your class gets over 10 seconds to get ready, you get a punishment so if you get 11 seconds then you get one punishment, 12 seconds two punishments and so on.

What I liked is that Taekwondo is very much like Karate.

Tent Creations

Yesterday for Maths in Te Waka Ako we used both science and precision to make tents.

 The reason we had to do this task was on a math problem book there were people on an island and they got to choose how they built a tent. Some of the builders chose different shapes and some fell down but some stayed put.

 For the materials we used tooth picks and modeling clay (plasticine). There were a lot of problems, like having to pinpoint the exact location to put both the toothpicks and plasticine.

 What was fun is that we got to choose which way we built the tent. I chose a lot of different shapes including an L shape, A cube shape and finally the pyramid shape. All of the shapes fell down but the pyramid shape was the strongest.

Overall the project is both fun and challenging at the same time.

also I was wondering why the pyramid shape was so strong and I found a website that said why it is so strong. This is the website link.

Yesterday Te Waka Ako did creative writing. We got to write anything we want because Mr Ross said that instead of the teachers saying what we have to write about. I wrote about a series called dragon ball super. It is about a man called goku, He is an alien but he looks like a human.He has very spiky hair and he is one of the strongest fighters in the universe, maybe even the galaxy. Overall I think I wrote a very long yet detailed piece of story.I hope you like the story. Please comment if you wish as I would love to see where my pros and cons come in

thinglink post


This is a Thinglink that I made.It is an interactive image that is all about me.I started it last week and It was finished at home on Monday.We got to do 2 paragraphs that show my personal information that i'm aloud to share. After that we get to do 2 videos,one is my inspiration as he plays rugby, and the other is a man that came to our school called Mr Eco.After that we got to put on two pieces of writing that I made,I only did one because this is my only good finished writing. Leave a comment if you please as that would help me a ton.

The Humongous Move

On monday The Senior Syndicate moved into Te waka ako. Our local MP Michael wood came to talk about how privileged we should be about having our new classrooms. The kapa Haka group that I was in performed 2 songs called He Honore and Tutira Mai Nga. Finally Michael wood cut the ribbon to officially open the classrooms. The whole school including the staff and Parents got to have a tour around the classes. It was a nerve racking but very fun experience. We used The thinking hats to show what we liked,didn't like and what we should do now.

The new furniture is really cool and comfortable. Working with three teachers still feel the same and kind of easier for the teachers so they don't have to put up with me and max.
