Magical Myths and Legends


These slides are about Myths and Legends, I Read or listened to the texts and had to answer questions revolving the Myth Story. For the 1st Create task we got options what random myth we wanna make up so I did why Snakes have no legs. For the 2nd Create task I Summarised The myth of Daedalus and Icarus. Do you believe Myths and Legends? Have you heard a Myth from your family? Have you written a Myth?

Artworks Performances

After Morning tea the whole school got into their lines and headed under Te Kapua to see the other classrooms performances.  Team 5 dance group showed off their intense dance moves and Team 4 had shown their mask on stage.  Team 3 performed shadow puppets, team 2 also showed a dance.  Lastly team 1 sang with the screen presenting their artsy crafts.  Do you like art? Are you an artist? Do you love to dance and sing? After the Presentations there still was an expo, our teachers leaded us to the hall where all the art was set up and songwriting groups songs were heard.

The Hunger Games Writing Task

For Literacy our classroom is focusing on targeted audience who were writing for or what audience would read such text and In this slide we summarised a text about hunger games, the questions were “What happens in the extract?” “Who do you think should read the text?”. Have you seen Hunger Games? Is this accurate? Do you like Hunger Games?

Important Speeches

Our team has started working on speech’s as well as the power or tone of these type of speeches, first we went off to read Lou Gehrig’s speech then Nelson Mandela’s speech.  Gehrig’s speech is about his last words to the people who were inspired by his skills or who helped him build his way up since he had a health condition making him unable to play sports.  Nelson’s Speech is about equality between races how one shouldn’t be more dominant than the rest and how dedicated he was for a better change even if it ended up in him not living.

Little Story (This is Just to say)

This was a quick task from Literacy Class, What we had to do was make our own versions of “This Is Just To Say” by William Carlos Williams in 1883-1963, We tell a story from when we were little and change it to look like Williams.  Do you have interesting Baby/Toddler Stories?

Commonwealth Games!

My Literacy Classroom’s task was to learn about the commonwealth games, My Teacher gave us information to make it easier and answer some questions, she even gave us an Create task (the last slide is my create task), I’ve only just learnt about the Commonwealth Games and it sounds awesome!.  Do you know what Common Wealth games are about? Would you want to play? Do you like sports?.

Mass Rotations

In Maths class we started learning how to measure mass.  we had to get into groups, my Group’s first rotation was Capacity 2, Where you had to pour water in 2 containers that were different, one cup shaped and one rectangle shaped. (you can see the picture on the 4th slide).  Do you like Mass? Do you know what Capacity is?

 

Then my Group’s second rotation was Mass Scale it was an small scale and we had to weight 3 things as seen on the 2nd slide, I weighted hand sanitiser, TV remote and a book so the mass’s were 140, 130, 160 in that order.  Do you use a Mass scale? What 3 things would you scale?

 

After that my Group had Capacity rotation 1 which was pouring water into cups or measuring cups, if we wanted to measure a teaspoon we used a tiny syringe.  The capacity of one cup is 250L, a plastic cup is 200L and a teaspoon is 4ml (you can see on the 3rd slide).  Do you use measuring cups? Did you know these stuff?

That is all for this blog post have a colourful day!
