The Power Of Science

The last two weeks of school Room 10 and 9 have joined forces to do science experiments together. We are mainly looking around sound. We are in 5 different groups, a mixture of Room 10 and 9. I am in a group with Agueer, Diego, Frank, Nurul, Riiana and Mary-Ruth. (Don't forget to check these amazing bloggers to!)

Different pitches and different objects make some sort of music. Vibrations and movement s one big part of sound. I have learnt so much about sound that, I believe I can actually make music with everyday objects thinking about the different pitches. It won't be hard because I understand how vibrations work.

Is It Football Or Is It Soccer?

Every Wednesday my class go out on the field to some sport. A lady called " Hannah". Hannah is our coach. We start by doing some warm up's.
We do:

  • Dragon tail
  • Octopus
  • Tag
  • Stuck in the mud
But just remember that's only the warm up. Once we played at least 5 or 6 games to the point were we are warmed up or a little tired. Hanna then splits us up into 4 groups. Two groups are wearing bibs. The other groups have no bibs. One team with bibs and no bibs go against each other, same with the other teams too. We play soccer or as some people call it football.

I enjoy playing soccer with my class/friends. We play for 40 minutes in total from the very beginning to the end. I would like to say thanks to Hannah for teaching us and playing with us. Today, Wednesday 28th 2017 is our last day of Kiwi sports.

"Catching The Bus In Samoa" - Reading

Today my group read "Catching The Bus In Samoa". We were comparing what it is like to catch a bus in New Zealand and Samoa. There is a big difference between Samoan bus' and New Zealand bus'.

Samoan Bus'                                                        New Zealand Bus'
  •               Plastic windows                                                      Glass windows
  •               No doors                                                                  2 doors 
  •               Uncomfortable seat padding                                 Comfortable seat padding
  •               Small                                                                         Big
  •               Bright coloured                                                         Limited colours

Malo e lelei... What Does That Mean?

These  past view weeks we went into groups of 4 and made a presentation about Tonga. I am Samoan so I don't know much about Tonga but, I found it very interesting learning about Tonga. I have learnt how hot it get's in Tonga, the language and the capital city of Tonga. 
Thanks to Leaaepeni, Joanlisi and Tyra for being in a group with me.
