Yesterday we had our first club activities for Term 3 in Room 9 with Mrs Sigamoney and Ms. Elia. I went to the Ukulele club.

First we had to tune our own ukulele with the tuner.  When it was my turn to put the tuner on my ukulele, I only used the tuner to tune the first string and then I was able to tune the rest of the strings by myself because it was  hard to use the tuner.

I felt very excited and happy to learn  how to play a ukulele because then I will know how to play a ukulele at home. When I knew how to play I was cheerful because Luisa and Cherise were cheering me up when I was playing the ukulele.

Kiwi Can

Kiwi Can

Room 10 had its last session with Kiwi Can for this term. All students were very eager to go and participate in the activities because they scored 25 points out of 25 last week.

The energiser activity was called Body parts. The students had to walk around and then when the name of a body par was called out, they had to buddy up and match the body parts with their buddy. Students had a lot of fun doing this activity.

After the energiser, the main activity was called bus stop. For this activity, students worked in pairs and they  had to write down names of six different things beginning with a letter from the alphabet as shown in the table below. As soon their list was complete, they had to call out “Bus Stop”. Then everyone stopped writing and listened to the list of names read out by the pair  that called out “Bus Stop”.

Everyone enjoyed this activity because it really made us think very hard to name things beginning with different letters from the alphabet. We all learned so much from this activity.

Name of Boy
Name of Girl
Name of a colour
Name of food
Name of animal
Name of a Place
Dark red

Towards the end of the lesson, Maya thanked Mr. Niumia and Ms. Tuia for their hard work in keeping Room 10 busy during the Kiwi Can sessions.

We all came back to our classroom very happy and energised.

Catch that thief

Long ago, there were four teenagers that lived together in a secret hide out and their names were Starfire, Beast Boy, Robin, and Cyborg.

All 4 teenagers were like ninjas, but there was a super Villain that tried to stop the four ninjas and take over the world. His name was Deathstroke. Deathstroke was very bad and he was always trying to kill the president but the 4 ninjas were always there to stop him. But then Deathstroke had a plan. His plan was to steal the power cell to transfer the power to himself so he could be INDESTRUCTIBLE. Deathstroke sneaked into the power room but he did not know he had crossed the red laser. The alarm went on. Then the 4 ninjas came out of nowhere and took him to the police. The police locked him in jail. Officer Wills Said,’’You are going to be in jail for a lifetime”.  

Seven years later, the 4 teenagers  became adults and  the police discovered that Deathstroke was not in his cell. “Look there is a hole, he must have escaped from jail,” said officer Will. The 4 ninjas rushed to the power cell room but the power room was locked. Cyborg used his laser to melt the door. When they opened the door, the power cell was replaced with a bomb. The bomb blew up 5 seconds after they opened the door. BOOM.

Starfire and Robin were injured very badly. Starfire ended up with a broken leg and a broken arm and Robin ended up with broken a arm and two big pieces of glass landed on his leg. It was up to Beast Boy and Cyborg to stop Deathstroke. Beast boy and Cyborg used the police GPS to track Deathstroke. When they found Deathstroke, Cyborg and Beastboy had a plan to baricade his house with iron bars. Beast boy and Cyborg went inside the house to fight Deathstroke. Deathstroke had another bomb.  Then Beast Boy said, “Cyborg, go and get the power cell and get out of here’’.
“No get out of here,” said Beast boy.  When Cyborg melted the iron bars and flew away, the house blew up and Deathstroke died. When Cyborg went to give the power cell to the president he went straight to Beast boy  to check if he was still breathing. Five minutes later, Beast boy woke up with lots of pain. He was rushed to the hospital.  The doctors said that Beast Boy has to go through surgery . Beastboy had to stay in hospital for three months.  

When Starfire, Robin and Beast boy came out of the hospital, the four ninjas went to the President and got 1 million dollars as their prize. After that, the four ninjas flew to New Zealand and got 3 million dollars
from John Key. The four ninjas decided to live in New Zealand and the four ninjas lived happily ever after but not Deathstroke.        Image result for teen titans go cyborg transparent

Why is the GI Library an important place in our community?

It is the information centre for the community. The GI Library has thousands of books for people of all different ages. It also has internet access for people to look for information on the world wide web.

Another reason is that, it has enough space to host community meetings for the Pasifika communities in GI. During the Pasifika Language week, different communities come  together at the GI Library to celebrate their language and culture

A further reason is that it host many different programmes for the community during the year. Some of these programmes are holiday reading programmes for school students, Matariki festival highlights, health seminars for parents and community leaders.

If we consider these reason, then one could realise that the GI library is a very important place in our community because it an information hub and meeting centre for our community.

All about me, Anastacia

All about me

My name is Anastacia. I am Samoan and I have two sisters and a brother. I go to Glenbrae school with my sister Anita and I have been in this school for 3 and a half years. I love playing soccer, guitar, piano, cleaning, cooking, sleeping, writing, reading and maths.

I love math because we have to use numbers and learn new things like fraction, timetables, division, addition and subtraction. I love writing because I like using all those punctuations and learning how to write a lot of good stories. I also love reading stories people write.

I love eating healthy  food. I like playing with my friends outside and at school. I really love learning new things and making new friends. When I make new friends I feel really happy and excited.

I love having fun because its the way to get your learning done afterwards (for me). I love singing and dancing because its my passion and that's what God gave to me as a talent.  I love watching DIY'S on you tube because that keeps me organized, clean and healthy.

I hope you have enjoyed reading my recount about me and learnt something about me.

Room 10's Birthday Months

Room 10's Birthday Months.

This term, for the last three Fridays, Room 10 has been studying Statistics in Maths. Today we learnt how to create a table and a chart using Google sheets. First of all, we created a table like the one below and then we collected the data for each month. After that we created a Bar Graph using the data we had collected.

From this data, now we know  that  October has the most number of students with their birthdays. I felt very excited after learning how to create a table and a chart using Google sheets.
