Leilani - Maker Space - Pan Pipes + Thank You!

Makers Space

-----

Pan Pipes!

 

Have you ever created pan pipes? Well we did! For term 4 Mr Vogt said we were going to create pan pipes. Not the small ones giant ones. Out goal was to make sure the pipes wouldn't move around. We used blue pipes , zipes and bolts.







First group 2 in room 6 maths class they added bolts to the blue pipes. I'm in group 1 so we added the zipes over and under the blue pipes. When we did that we had four zipes going over and under the  pipes. It was 3 groups of 4. I did one group of 4 and I added two on one side of the bolt and the other two on the other side of the bolt. My fingers got very tired. 
I would like to give a huge thank you to Mr Vogt for letting us create Pan pipes. I would also give a huge thank you to Pt England School for letting us build things in Maker Space. I have learnt lots of things for building. Next year I can't wait until we can build more amazing projects.

Your recount - in full sentences - start here:


Have you ever been at school with not many people in your classroom? Well since the year 6 were at camp the rest of the year 5 and 6 stayed back at school. We all thought on 24th of November would be boring but it wasn’t. Miss Scanlan told us three choices. The first choice was colourning , second choice was game of awesome and the third choice was cool maths games.


I picked coloring. I chose three paper sheets of coloring activities. They were a tiger , lions and a elephant. I used different types of vibrant colours. I used some of the gel pens I thought that these pens were good.

My hands were so sore when I was coloring. I coloured one of the tiger blue. Because I thought that would be much more different from everyone else tigers. It took me a while trying the colour in the coloring.

After I was coloring my hands felt dead. I would like to give a big thank you to Miss Scanlan for letting us doing some fun activities. Next time I would like to colour more colouring activities. I love coloring!

Leilani - Free Writing - The Cave!

Walt: write a detailed narrative from a sentence starter  Walt: use descriptive words to make a narrative more exciting

The Cave
I walked into the dark, gloomy, damp cave. Everything was silent apart from the slow drip of water above my head. Suddenly the silence was shattered by a loud shriek! What was that?

Planning
How does your story begin?
One day I was with my friends on  a bush walk. Then I saw a cave so we decided to go check it out. It was dark , gloomy , damp cave. Everything was silent apart from the slow drip of water above my head.Suddenly the silence was shattered by a loud shriek!

Setting - Where and when does the story take place?
In a dark cave.
Mountains.

Characters: Who are the characters in your story? Describe what they look like? What they sounds like?
There are four characters in my story -
Myself - Medium black hair , short and has a very quiet voice but very humble.
My Friend ( Paige ) Medium brown hair , short and is very smart.
The Monster ( Peter ) Bad , Wears black long jacket everywhere and very naughty.
Dog ( Boo ) Breed - Husky & Bulldog , very strong clever.


How do they manage to get back home from the cave?
It took them 48 hours to get out of the cave. Their dog boo has a great nose so he could get them out of the cold and dark cave. They had enough food for them to eat while they were in the cave. They both got locked up in a cage by Peter. So they quickly came up with a plan and got out of there. Their dog showed the way out.

Conclusion: How does your story end?
Paige and myself got out of there and went straight home. They learnt to always have parents supervising them instead of going out without parents. They lived happily ever after!


Start writing your story in full sentences here:
On one hot sunny day Paige and I went on a walk to Mangere mountains. It was the perfect day and time  to do it. When we were on the mountains walking up to the top we saw a dark , scary cave. We thought it  would be so  cool so we decided to go and check it out. It was cold , dark , gloomy and damp . It was very , very silent.  Suddenly we heard a loud shriek! Me and Paige started freaking out!

Oooo No! Huge rocks started falling down from the  top of the cave. Paige and I quickly took cover underneath a massive  rock. “ I am super scared I want to go home “ said Paige.  I replied and said “ it is going to be okay we will find a way out of here” Out of nowhere we heard a spooky voice. “ Come here right now , I am going to lock yous up in a dark and secret cave! “ We had no idea who that was so it took us!

“ Paige , Paige ,PAIGE! Where are you? “ I said. I was freaking out ,  I hope I didn’t lose Paige because she is my best friend. “ Leilani , come on I am right here “ said Paige.” Phew I thought you died or I lost you or whatever else! “. It was finally time for Leilani and Paige to get out of the dark , cold cage before the scary monster came back. Suddenly they  heard pawsteps. They  both thought it was the scary monster so they cuddled up together.  But it was their dog Boo. He was trained to help us out he is so cute!. Paige and Leilani  told him to get the keys so that we could get out of the cage. So he did. He is so clever. Phew Leilani and Paige got out of the cage before the monster came back! So they  tiptoed to the rocks that had fallen down for the top if the cave. They  said  that we should  push the huge rocks out of the way. “ PUSH , PUSH ugh I give up this is way too heavy! ” Man I was running out of breath while Paige was sitting there eating some yummy sandwiches.

( 2 hours later ) I was huffing and puffing lots of times because I did all of the work just to get the rock out of our way so that we could go back home and to get out of the cave. We grabbed our stuff and ran to our home. “ We are never , never , ever going back there again” I said. Maybe if we go back in there I think Paige needs to help me out more because she did nothing! Then we lived happily ever after!
==================================================
Task description - Room 8 is doing a free writing all about the cave. We had to write the story based off this image link. Here is my version. I made it into a scary , spooky story. I tried my best at writing the paragraphs. Of course before I write my story I have to plan. Because planning makes your writing more organised. I don't normally follow my plan because I change it up a bit. God bless you an your family , stay safe and see ya later!

Leilani - The Perfect Goal By Vanessa Barker! Reading!

Walt: to be able to find important information in the readings
Walt: to identify what percussion instruments are 

The Perfect Goal
By Vanessa Barker

I’m flying through the air, high above the city. I’m the world famous Jackson Davis, Captain Unreal’s trusty sidekick, and below us the cheers of the crowd are deafening. We go in for a landing, and people are patting me on the back, congratulating me for helping save the world. They chant my name over and over. “Jackson! Jackson! Jackson” Captain Unreal clears his throat loudly. “Jackson Davis, hand me that comic book. NOW.”

“Huh?” I snap out of it, confused. Then i remember that I’m not actually  captain Unreal’s sidekick. I'm Jackson Davis and I'm in Year 7 at Glenvale Intermediate School. Right now, my teacher,  Mr Hoeata,  is standing above me with his arms crossed. He drops my English assignment on my desk and holds out his hand. I slowly handover the comic book. “ You can have this back at the end of the day,” Mr Hoeata says sternly and moves on to the next desk. Ugh. Compared to comic books, real life is so boring.

I lift my assignment up to my face. Written at the top in red letters is “See me”. I groan. You see, Other than comic books, I'm totally obsessed with soccer. I'm trying out for the team at the end of the school term and practice at lunch everyday. That’s why I wrote my assignment about scoring the perfect goal.  it seemed like a good idea at the time, but I have a feeling Mr Hoeata doesn't like soccer very much.

At lunch, I try not to worry about seeing Mr Hoeata at the end of the day. I’m playing soccer with some friends and I've got the ball. I dribble up the side of the field, and people fall over left and right as I zip past. The goal is only metres away. I kick the ball with one smooth movement. It flies over everyone's heads as if in slow motion - up and up, higher and higher, I feel my excitement building. Have I finally scored the perfect goal?

I stare at the ball with my mouth open as it flies over the goal... and straight into a crowd of people. That’s when the crying starts. I was going to be famous, that's for sure. Because I, Jackson Davis, will now forever be known as the kid who broke Kayla Hoeata’s nose at  lunch with a soccer ball.





The Perfect Goal
Questions

  1. What is the name of the superhero in the comic book Jackson is reading? Captain unreal trusty sidekick.

  2. Where does Jackson go to school? Jackson school is called  Glenvale intermediate school.

  3. When are the soccer tryouts? At the end of the school term.

  4. What was Jackson's assignment about? His English assignment.

  5. Why did Mr Hoeata make Jackson give him the comic book? Because Mr Hoeata didn’t like the comic book and Jackson was making up story.

  6. Why might Jackson think real life is boring compared to comic books?  Because when you are reading a comic book it is very interesting to read about. Also what he is doing at school which is probably very boring he just thought that comic books were much more funner than real life.

  7. Why does Jackson practice soccer at lunch everyday? Jackson practice soccer everyday because he really want’s to get into the soccer team. Because practice , practice and practice makes you become a expert. He would also get very fit and healthy that is also another reason that he could be practicing every lunch time.



  1. Why did Jackson think he was going to be famous for breaking Kayla’s nose? Because instead of being famous for getting the best goal. He would be famous for breaking Kayla's nose. This here is kinda a joke. Also he would become famous because everyone was there to see him do that.

  2. Why might Jackson be worried that he is going to get a bad mark for his assignment? Because he didn’t study instead he read his comic books. He also didn’t listen to the teacher which means he is not respectful.

  3. Do you think Jackson will get in trouble for breaking Kayla’s nose? Why? I think Jackson will get in trouble because he wasn’t being careful and he thought he was the master. He needs to be more himself and not to be someone that they are not to be.

Leilani - Film Festival Writing!

Walt: write a recount about a personal experience. Walt: organise our ideas into a series of paragraphs.

















Have you ever been to the movies with your school? Well on the 8th of November Pt England School went to Sylvia park to watch the Manaiakalani movies. Room 7 went in the morning and room 8 and 6 went later in the morning. When waiting in the bus we sang songs , looked out the windows and talked to each other. A couple minutes later we finally reached   our destination.



Once we got out of the bus we headed start into the mall. There was lots of public so we needed to be sensible . When we  were walking I  saw a ride and  it looked so fun. We walked into the movies and waited until we were told that we can walk inside of the theater. Once they said we can go in we all  got a seat and waited until Mrs Grant did her speech. It wasn’t too long because we needed to jump straight  into watching the movies. I was super excited.

While we were watching the movies that other classes made I started to get tired I wish I could go to sleep but I didn’t want to fall asleep at the movies. Room 7 had a really cool movie. Their movie is called the time machine. I loved that movie because it was funny and it was not too boring to watch. I think that all of the Manaiakalani movies were great and funny.

When we were in the movie theater we were with another school. I think that their school is called St Patrick's. They had some very sensible uniform. Their movies were more about the world and how to keep it  healthy and safe. All movies were outstanding and the actors are just experts.

After the movies were all done I was super exhausted. But I had enough energy for the rest of the day. I have learnt lots of things like being more cybersmart , to take care of the world much more better , don’t give up and always try my best. I think that all of the movies showed something really helpful for the future and for the next generations. I also think that we are going to improve more in our learning by watching these movies because they are showing us something very great. I love going to the movies to watch the Manaiakalani movies.

Task description - As you can see room 8 is writing about film festival. This writing didn't take me a long time I just had to make sure I was on task the whole time. My goal was to try and use new words and made sure that I finish it on time. I have done a introduction , three paragraphs and a conclusion. This writing made me improve my writing just a little bit and I love writing. God bless you and your family , stay safe and see ya later!

Leilani - Athletics Writing!

Walt: write a recount about a personal experience. Walt: organise our ideas into a series of paragraphs.
















Have you ever had an athletics day? Well at my school we have athletics day to keep fit and healthy. On the 10th of November Pt England School had a athletics day. There was different obstacles on the field. When it comes to athletics day we get into four different teams. I was in red.

In the morning once we got to school we all had to get change into our clothes we bring for the day. If you didn’t bring any clothes that is fine you can just wear whatever you have on. Once we had finish getting changed we of course had to get our hats so that once we grow we might get skin cancer.  




Finally we got to start out games. Our first game was dodgeball. It was red vs green. I think red won but I can’t really remember. For athletics day we played dodgeball , shot put , tug a war , high jump , sprints , discus.




After morning tea we did a couple more activities. Here are they in order. Javelin , this other game , relays , hit the ball and the last game was volleyball. I was really hungry at this moment that I nearly fainted. Yay it was lunch time I could finally eat my yummy food. After lunch time it was the teachers , students and parents time for relays. First place was the students , second place was the parents and third place was the teachers.

I enjoyed all of the course  that the teachers did for us. My favourite activity was the sprints. I think everyone did amazing. I love athletics day. But before the day I will be like dang I don’t wanna do this right now I don’t wanna do it. But I end up doing it.

Task description - As you can see my the title this writing is all about athletics day. I have done a introduction , three paragraphs and a conclusion. Each paragraph explains different things that we did on athletics day. Athletics day was so much fun I hope next year we do it again. God bless you and your family , stay safe and see ya later!
