Extension Sub-Topic and Groupwork

This term in extension we were learning and researching about our local area / Tamaki History. The history of our local area was quite big and would be forever to try and research all of it so we narrowed it down to things like cluture, myths and legends. We were put in groups of 3. My group Legacy and Finau, together we created a google slides and chose to research mostly about the myths and legends of our local area.

The Race

This week in literacy we are making animations useing google slides, I have done this before in my class for cybersmarts. My animation is about a goldfish who is swimming in the ocean and a big shark comes along and ask him for a race, the goldfish agress and they start. The little goldfish is far behide the shark but he doesn’t give up and starts going faster but out of nowhere the shark turns around and opens his mouth wide. The little fish was going to fast at the time so he was unable to stop in time to not get eaten. In the end the shark won and had a early lunch.

Something I don’t enjoy to much is reading, but every teacher always tells me that reading is the MOST important subject.

Here are 2 learning goals i have set for myself:

  1. To blog 2 times a week in the holidays
  2. To read more books

Thank you to all the Mana ako teacher Mrs Tele’a, Miss Tele’s, Mr Tuala for teaching us lots of important lessons and helping us be more confidence.

Classify Polygons

Today we learned about polygon. With our teacher we went through the slides and looked at the different kinds of polygon. We talked about how many sides and edges each shape has. We learnt about new shapes like the decagon wich has ten sides and the nonagon which has nine. We look at irregular and regular shapes looking that how that are differtent but are stil the same. I think the hardest thing in this task was trying to remember all the names for the shapes. I hope you enjoy these slides and feel free to leave a commet
