Making Tukutuku Mats

               This term we have been learning about making tukutuku patterns and how you can see them in a
               wharenui on the walls. A wharenui is a meeting house. I made a tukutuku mat and I think
               I did a pretty good job. To make it we needed a cardboard loom and strips of black and red 
               paper. We had to weave the strips in and out and secure them on the edge of the loom with glue.

Smart Relationship Qualities

                                   This week of Cyber smart we made structures out of Marshmallow and spaghetti.
                                    Mrs Collins challenged us to make the tallest tower we could make as a group.
                                    We didn't have much resources since we only had 8 Marshmallow's and 12                                               spaghetti noodles which were raw.
                                     We started off by planing  how to build the tower and then we started building.
                                      Our original plan didn't so we had to start again.
                                      Our tower was 8 cm tall because we didn't have enough time but we showed                                             some great teamwork.

Matariki slideshow

This term we have been learning about Matariki
and this is my Matariki Slideshow. Matariki is a cluster
of stars and there are thousands of stars in the cluster but you can only see seven stars with the naked eye, early in the morning, when it is still dark.

My Digital Footprint

My footprint

This is my Digital Footprint and Mrs Collins gave me 45%, so its an ok footprint. I have 13 reds and eleven green.We have been working on this for a while now. I have 24 games on my footprint but there are lots more since I did not have enough to write them all down. A digital footprint shows how well you use the internet, like too many games is not good.

Catholic Schools'day

                          Catholic Schools'Day                                                                                                                                  On Tuesday it was Catholic Schools' Day. That means all Catholic schools in New Zealand do something special because we are Catholic. St. Ignatius and St Pius X schools came to celebrate it with us. We went to Mass at Church. There were three priests  and the entire Church was full. We sang lots of songs and most of the songs we've sung before. After Mass we went back to the canopy to have our lunch.                                                                                                                                There were so many children and the noise was incredibly lou
d. We had our lunch inside the classroom while St.Ignatius and St.Pius X had their lunches outside because they were so hungry to move.                                                                                                                                                                                             When the bell rang St.Ignatius was already going back to their school while St.Pius X was playing on the grass and on the playground. We were going to do tabloids sports but it rained so we decided to go back to class and have free time.

                                                          TIKA,PONO,AROHA                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       We have been learning about how Jesus respected the Tapu [sacredness}of people. We listened to the story about the Samaritan woman who talked to Jesus, even though Jews hated Samaritans and were not allowed to speak to them. Jesus asked her for some water which shows that he respected her.
Also in the story of Jesus healing the leper, he got close to the man with leprosy which he could have got sick from. He felt pity for the man and healed him. These stories show us how we must treat other people, even those who are different to us. This will mean that we treat others like Jesus did, with Tika (being just and doing the right thing), Pono (being truthful) and Aroha (loving).
I show Aroha when I help Nino when he doesn't understand something. I show Pono when i I tell the truth and I show Tika when I stick up for someone is being hurt.
