"Be like Pita"

Have you ever failed at something and felt like you couldn't do it? 

Then we want you to BE LIKE PITA. 

This is a story about a boy who didn't do too well in a test at school. His circle of friends wanted to help him but it wasn't that easy. 

Before you watch it, take a guess at what you think happened. 

Lights, Camera, Action!

First Music Session

Today we had our first music session with our teacher. We were learning about musical terms. Our first task was to find all the letters around the classroom, some were hidden and others weren't. Once we found them all we had to unscramble the letters and figure out what the words were. Some of the words were hard, especially OSTINATO.

We were taught a song to help us learn what the different words mean. Today's words are

Here is a song that we learnt today about what these words mean

Swimming lesson with Whaea Moe

Today we had Whaea Moe from Swim NZ come into our class and talk to us about being safe in the water. She taught us a little poem to help us remember some things about being safe in the water

In the water 
On the water 
Around the water
Children must be supervised 
All the time 
Every time

Cross Country/Fun Run 2019

We had our Cross Country and Fun Run today. When the day started, it was cloudy and grim and a storm was meant to come. So the event got moved forward into the morning block. It was tiring but still a really good day. Have a look at some of the photos below ...

Fitness with Alesio

On Monday we met two of the Personal Trainers from GI Snap Fitness. They came in to meet with us and to let us know that they'll be coming back on Thursday to do some fun activities around being healthy and staying fit.

Today, Alesio came in and we were ready to get a good work out! We were so happy that the weather was sunny because we had our session outside.

We did lots of running, pushups, jumping, burpees and start jumps.

By the end of the session we were so tired but we were so glad we did it because we had lots of fun!

Thank you Alesio and Snap Fitness Glen Innes for coming into our class and working with us. We hope to see you again!

Here we are with Alesio, our trainer after we had our session with him

Louis Sachar

In Room 9, the Tiki Reading Group is starting a Novel Study. First, they started with a bit of research about the author Louis Sachar. This writer is well known for the story Holes, 'There's are boy in the girls bathroom' and 'Fuzzy Mud'.

The Tiki Reading Group is looking forward to reading 'Holes' by Louis Sachar. 

Catherine made a poster including some facts about him. 

Be on the lookout for more learning from the Tiki Reading group.

Film Angles

In Room 9, we are starting to make films all about our learning. We are a Manaiakalani School and the film festival is coming up. So when all the films are done teachers pick which film should get selected.And when they get selected all the manaikalani schools go to the Sylvia Park theater and watch other manaikalani school films.

We have been learning about camera angles, what they are, what they capture and why they're used.

Catherine made a slide of film angles and some photos and we hope you learn something from it when you shoot some videos.
