Tuakana Teina

WALT:learn from each other and to teach each other .

 Yesterday,Room 8 made earthquake houses. The idea was to make a house that would be able to withstand an  earthquake .

 Firstly,  Room 8 went down to Room 3 . In  Room 3 Room 8,Room 5 and Room 3 did a safety talk with Miss Gormaly . Then we got split into groups of 3 . We had  one Room 8 one Room 3 and one Room 5 student in each group  .

Secondly , I had to go to kapa haka so my group didn't know so well what  I did so they teamed up with some girls and did their plan .

Thirdly,  when  I got back from kapa haka I saw  that they had focused on making it pretty, not to work properly ! So I upgraded  it a little so it would work a little  better to be earthquake proof  so we might win the competition .

WALT:write a recount on making a chatterbox

Wow, today Room 8  made chatterboxes ! I felt super curious when Ms Bracey tore out about 21 pages from a magazine it felt as if we were going to do some art .

Firstly,we passed the paper around the class and we all took one .Next we folded some of the paper in to a big triangle and we were left with a oblong [rectangle] .We cut the oblong off the paper.

Secondly, room 8 folded it into quarters the we flipped the square upside down and folded that side into quarters .

Finally, we had a chatterbox.  My one looked really cool because all of my corners were creased really well .

Magic snow

Magic snow

WALT: A science  experiment with polymer to write a recount from  the experiment .

Fantastic,magic snow on  the cold morning of Wednesday Room 8 was preparing for a snow experiment in the class . I felt super duper excited to touch fake snow .   

Firstly, The students of Room 8 were split into groups of six and were given a brush,some water,a container and a packet of magic snow  . We  were all nervous because we didn't know what would happen .

Secondly, we opened the packet of magic snow and we saw powder . We tipped the powder in the container and  poured the water in . It started to swell like a itchy bit after you scratch it !

Finally, we learnt that the powder was actually polymer.
Nappies have polymer in them. We made it into snowballs, sandcastles and snowmen.  It was extremely fun experiment !

day and night

Image result for day and night Firstly , Did you know that night  is caused by the rotation of the earth?
The earth has something called an axis .

 Secondly ,  the axis makes the earth rotate .  The Earth not only turns on its axis it all so orbits the sun . The axis of earth  is actually tilting a little bit .

,the earth orbiting the sun is caused by the magnetic field of the Sun .   In addition the Earth takes 365 days to orbit the sun also known as  1 year . 

Lastly,the tilti cause one side of the earth to have day and the other side is night this means that different sides of the earth get  a  different amount of sunlight .

River Talks 2018

My name is Milan….

This is a Spiritual Poem - please shut your eyes…

Imagine a life - by Milan

Imagine a life of death, dark and gloom and parts around you perishing inside,

Imagine a heart being clogged up with shame, that can’t pump it’s power and fame.

Imagine a life where the spirits have been wasted, even when I die, it’s been destroyed. 

Imagine a life where you’ve tried and tried, but at the end, you’ve faded away. 

Imagine a life where you were born yesterday, and you die today. 

This poem is about stopping people from littering in the river. 

Littering is bed for the the environment

Imagine if you were born today and you die tomorrow...

I wrote this poem while plaiting this rope. The rope symbolises 




It’s Companies, 
Businesses and Factories.
They need to Stop Dumping Their Crap! 

And the Government - Parliament and Councils

We need NEW LAWS
To STOP destroying our river spirits. 

So I want to see action 
from our government 

Thank you for listening

My display is about:
  • A Speaker that was made out of an old suitcase
  • A Table that was made out of broken pieces of  BBQ
  • A Chopping Board : that was made out of old houses in GI that are being destroyed by Housing New Zealand
  • and Bags made out of scrap materials from curtains and old materials.

Milan first Panmure Bridge

We walked down to  the Panmure Wharf were the 1st bridge was (it was a swing bridge) . The bridge was made in 1950s. It was demolished because it was old and not strong enough to take the weight cars. Hemi the famer from Panmure grow crops and owned a farm in Pakuranga. He had a punt that he used for delivering crops and animals to Australia to sell . 

Two horrifying weeks ago there was a footbridge that collapsed on a 8 lane highway in America Miami .  They decided to make it because a girl died from university being run over by a car .  The foot bridge was made in  six hours  from steel and concrete . There was a hospital helicopter hovering on top of the accident  . They had to send it away because they couldn't hear the  people that were stuck .
