Kia Ora

Today our class is focusing on our Key Competencies. Our aim was to stay on task and see how much progress we make for reading and writing in one morning block. This should set the standard for how much work we complete each time we have literacy.

Accidental Plastics

WALT: Use prior knowledge along with information in the text to interpret abstract ideas.

I've been working on & reading about Accidental Plastics. So like something that was a mistake, but yet it was new invention. My thought right now is 8 pool balls, do you know what their made out of?? The material of it? Well there was a man called, John Wesley Hyatt he's a scientist. He tried to win a prize by using cellulose, plant-based material. Mix with other ingredients. He accidentally spilt some, he noticed that the mixture formed a thin film that was strong and flexible. It was a Billiard plastic form. PLASTIC, accidentally made.

Term 2 - Back from Home, and I'm looking forward to?!

Term 1, P.E finished with a special assembly. Pt England's principal Mr Burt, would always tell us about his friend " Collin ". The three R's, Road, Rail and River. How to keep safe! His word's were, 1 - Stay safe joining the Holidays, 2 - Don't play on the road or you might get squashed or flattened by a car, ( this is when his friend " Collin " comes into play ) 3 - His friend was almost close to dying. ( I don't wanna write the whole story because I gotta get the other part finished, what I'm looking forward to ). 

Anyways the holidays are done, and now it's time for Term 2. I'm obviously looking forward to rugby union for the school. It's gonna be 1 hell of a ride with the boys. 

Our Immersion Assembly brought back memory's. Mr Blakey, he told us stories. But he left in term 1, It was nice to hear Mr Blakey tell us one more story. 2k17 Staring   Now That's Thinking!

Then If you add 10 hundredths, it then equals 1 tenth.

2017 Polyfest

Thursday the 16th of March. Team 5 gathered around to travel on a bus, to Manukau, for the 2017 Polyfest. It was about a, 10 - 17 minute ride. We hopped off at gate 3, noticing that we were too early, to begin our tour. So we waited!! We heard some school waiata’s, that was being performed at the Te reo Maori stage.

It was time to being our tour. Walking and learning about, keeping firewise. In the kitchen, if there was a pot. That was lit on fire! We were told not to mix, water with fire. As they do not go well together. We were also told, if there was a fire on a pot. Put some soaking wet tea towels.                

As the day went on. So did the performances. Team 5 was put into individual groups, by Classes because normally we're one big unit. So... It was cool & intensive to watch the girls put, effort, leadership, and commitment towards their culture. The music would be so loud, ear plugs would be needed to block the sound.           

I think the favourite part I had, was??? Eating watermelon which was stacked with Ice cream on top, plus getting free glasses and a visor hat ( tennis hats ), And a Chinaman's hat.

Thank you for reading my reflection story about Polyfest 2k17.
