Matariki writing

Last friday it was matariki day and we got put into different groups and classes were separated into
different classes.
I was put into Movie making when I got into my group we got into small groups and one
of them were year 2 to 3 and year 4 to 5 boys and year 6 boys and my group was called the media group.
The people who was in my group was Luisa, Lashana, Ana, and Jahzara.
After that miss gave us a camera to me to take pictures and a camera to jahzara to do some interviews.
'After that we all went around the school and went to different classes.
We saw lots of creations and lots of food but over all of it it was fun but I want that day to be everyday.

After a while we came back and had our morning tea after morning tea we came back and we went to the classes that we did not interview and take photos but we didn't do all of the groups because Mrs lagitupu said that our movie had to be 3 of 2 minutes long. After we came back from around the school we started to edit it when we finished editing it we went to go have our lunch and after lunch the whole school went to the hall and sat in our groups and the people who made stuff had to walk on the stage and show their creations and the people who made movies showed their movies and the people who did cooking saved there cooking and and gave some to there teachers. After the whole assembly Mr Burt had all the year one to 3 go to there classes and Mr Burt let the rest of the people go because they were older and then they all went home.

Miss West's and Mrs Moala's Experiment

Research  I found out that the lighter ball will fall down more quicker because the gravity pulls it down more faster and I found out that gravity pulls you down so you can’t float.

Hypothesis   if you drop the big ball then it will drop before the smaller ball because it weighs more than the smaller ball.

Procedure:    Also because miss let them go at the same time and both of them were bounce so when they put it in slow motion that it looked like the heavier ball fell first but it was both of them.

Conclusion:  First thing you need to do is Ask yourself a question then get two chairs then get two balls after that drop the balls at the same time and from the same height.

Results:  After Miss dropped them we found out that they fell on the ground at the same time.

Immersion Assembly Recount

On the first day of school Monday the 30th Mr burt said welcome back to school then team one they played a movie about them going to the beach and and there was a big boulder in front  of them. They tried and tried to move it but they got a great idea. They found a long tree that had fallen down and they put it under the boulder and jumped on it altogether and it flu away. After the movie Miss hockly talked about what there doing. After she talked to us it was time for team 3 so team 3 played there movie. There movie was cool but it was about dancing and moving around like dancing and playing on the park so what  they're learning about is moving with motion. After that miss king came up and talked about what there doing.

So it was time for team 4 as you I am in team 4. The teachers played there movie and then all of them came up on the stage a were talking about it. They were talking about these things like they built different things and they roll off into the water so they made a mini version on it and they rolled it off and it was a fail so they walked back to they seats and it was time for team 5 the walked on the stage a they called out random teachers names  out they called Mr Moran’s name out and they called out Miss Moran and Miss parrant. After that 3 of the year 7&8 teachers vsed them in tug of war so they played it and the random teachers won. After that they did it with gloves the random teachers had to wear doctors gloves with dishwashing liquid so they played and the year 7&8 teachers won and after that we carried on with the assembly and after assembly we went back to class and and started writing about it.

We got to lie on the sand .Killer zone was also the best because we go to get wet and go to the pools and shower there. After that we had dinner. Our dinner was mince and nachos. it was so yummy that I ate it all and it was yum I was nearly gonna go for a second but I was so full . After that we went to watch a movie. It was called Captain Underpants it was so cool. After that we went straight to the marque and prayed and then we went to our tens and went to sleep.

Human Not

Before we started writing we went outside and play this game called the human not. We had to hold people’s hands across from us and then we had to try undo it. After that we had to go back inside and write about it. Last year the year 5’s did it and it look like it was fun so we played it. last year Mr Somerville took some photos of them. While we were doing the human not Miss West and Miss Moala took some photos of us. After that I went home and I played with my brother and sister.

R-E-S-P-E-C-T is helping other that need help and it’s about helping our environment.

Respect respect means helping other also helping the environment. Helping the environment means when you walk past rubbish you pick it up and put it in the bin.

Disrespectful it means the same thing from respect but the other way around it’s like taking when the teachers talking and not putting your hand up. That’s called being disrespectful.

Next thing you have to do is listen to the teacher when the teacher is talking to you you look at them and when there done you walk away.  

Next thing you have to do is be kind if someone is alone what would you do just ignore it or play with them I would play with them and saw would you be my friend.

R-E-S-P-E-C-T is helping other that need help and it’s about helping our environment.

By Maddison. Thanks for Reading

SLJ week two Day three activity 1 & 2

                   Day Three

   Activity one: Dealing with Stress 

In New Zealand, many people lost their jobs during this decade. Experts predict that as much as 30% of the population was unemployed. It was a very stressful time for families.

Sadly, many of us still experience stress in our lives to this day. When I feel stressed I try to go for a walk or pop into my local gym for a quick workout. Exercise makes me feel better. What about you?

On your blog, please tell us what you do when you want to relax or de-stress. Do you read a favourite book, watch a favourite television show or talk to someone special?  What are your tips for dealing with stress?

When i'm de-stress I watch TV or I go to sleep or I play cards with my brother or my sister.

                                  So those are some tips when i'm de-stressed. 


                           Activity two: Offering a Helping Hand  During this period, people struggled to find work both here at home and overseas. It was a really tough time for people living in the Great Plains of the United States because they were hit with a huge drought that lasted for most of the decade. Many crops were damaged and farmers were not able to make enough money to feed their families.

Imagine that you were alive in the 1930s. What could you have done to help these families? On your blog, list three different ways that you could raise funds for families to help them buy food and clothing. Be as creative as you can with your fundraising ideas!                          

1.  I would have a garage sale with clothes and hats and food 
and after that I would give the money to the family's . 



SLJ week two Day two activity 1 & 2

                          Day t w o

                      Activity one: The popular Culture, the silent movie: The 1920s saw a massive surge in the number of people going to the movies. Huge new cinemas were built in both Auckland (The Civic Theatre) and Dunedin (Empire De Luxe).  The most popular type of movies showing at local NZ cinemas were ‘silent’ films. Gold Rush and The Lion's Cage are examples of iconic silent films. They feature a famous actor named Charlie Chaplin. They said what the trailer for gold rush and say on your blog what you think about it and do you like silent movies or not and why or why not.

What I think about the movie it is a cool movie I really enjoyed watching it my favorite part of the movie was Charlie Chaplin putting his walking stick into the snow and his hand fell into the snow and my other favorite part was Charlie opened the door and the house nearly fell down and he was holding on to the door. Why: because it was a really funny and cool movie.

Activity Two: Art Deco  they said On your blog, give the painting a rating out of 5 stars (1 star = terrible painting, 2 stars = pretty bad painting, 3 stars = okay painting, 4 stars = good painting and 5 stars = amazing painting). After you’ve rated the painting out of 5, tell us why you gave it that rating and they said take a look at the painting very closely and rate it.    

So I looked at it very closely and I rate it a 5 because that's a really cool drawing and it got's really cool details so I give it a 5. 



SLJ week two Day one activity 1 & 2

     DAY ONE
                    Activity one: St Joseph’s Cathedral we had to find a                       
                Cathedral online and we had to find out where it is
                 Located and find out how long they built it and what               
                 Was its name.
                  So my name of the Cathedral is cologne Cathedral it is
                  Located in Germany were in germany domkloster 4
                   50667 Köln means cologne it took them 600 years to build the
cologne Cathedral
Here some pictures of cologne Cathedral.

This is some of the outside.


                                                         Here's some of the inside.

Activity Two: The Right to vote they said
Think about the fact about women were not allowed to vote
why or why not.

fact about women were not allowed to vote. I think its not fair
because women have the right to vote just like NZ so I think
women can vote.

Why: because it is not fair to women so women should vote.

Here's a picture of women

       Thanks for Reading!!!

summer learning journey day 5

Day Five
                                      Activity One: Translating Phrases

Unlike the Māori, many of the European settlers didn’t speak Te Reo Māori. Instead, they spoke English. As you can imagine, it was very difficult for the two groups to communicate because they did not have a dictionary or a translator. These days we are able to use the Internet to translate words and phrases from one language to another.

Use Google Translate to translate the following five phrases from English to Te Reo Māori or from Te Reo Māori to English. Post the translations on your blog. Be sure to include the phrase in both the English and Māori to earn full points.


  1. Nau mai ki Aotearoa = welcome to new zealand
  2. Maddison is my name = ko Maddison toku ingoa
  3. What is your name = He aha to ingoa
  4. He pai taku ki te takaro i te whutupaoro = I like to play rugby
  5. Where do you come from = He pai taku ki te takaro i te whutupaoro

Activity 2 :

On 6 February 1840, a very special document was signed by the Māori chiefs and the British settlers in New Zealand. It was called the Treaty of Waitangi (Te Tiriti o Waitangi) and it outlined how the two groups would live together and work together in New Zealand. It was the first document of its kind to be signed in the entire world. The Treaty was signed in a place called Waitangi in northern New Zealand.

It said what 3 things i would do at waitangi.

I would go to the beach.
Learn about the history.
Go for a run.
Play outside with my family.
Go kayaking

summer learning journey day 4

 Day Four
                          Activity One:   

On the site it told me to tell you my favourite maori waiata.

My favourite maori song is : Tai Aroha  
Why? : because I like singing it with my friend’s and my sister.

Activity Two: on the site it said for me to choose a traditonal maori game and name the rules and the purpose.

I choose the game rakau. Its a fun game to play and we sing the song e papa. You have to switch the sticks with the person oppisite you and sing. The two rules are you cannot cheat by handng it to them. They have to catch it. You have to smack the sticks together.

Thats my favourite game!
