Netball Shot Percentages

Back to school today and we have already finished our maths DLO. The mew thing we learnt was how to convert fractions into percentages. The thing I found most challenging was explaining our strategy to our teacher.  After finishing our DLO we played the algebra game. In my opinion the algebra game is the best maths game we play.

KiwiCan - Last Week Of Term 3

Today we had a lot of fun with KiwiCan because all we did was play fun as games. These games also taught us about how to act and what traits you need to possess like showing respect is very important. So if you think about it we are learning in a fun and safe environment. If we did this all the time I don't think I would get sick of it. 

Blog Comment To Paihia School

In LS2 we comment every Thursday to either Paihia School, Grey Main School, or Karoro School. We do this because we are apart of the quad blogging group. Today we commented to Paihia School. We pointed out the things we found great and we gave them constructive feedback. 

Term 3 Production - Dance Through The Decades Production

Panmure Bridge School is now 60 years old and to celebrate this achievement we have and will be dancing through the decades. In LS2 we have the 70's and 80's and our songs are 'I See Red' by Split Enz, 'Stayin Alive' by the Bee gees and 'Footloose' by Kenny Loggins. I was shocked when I found out that we had to dance to these old classics but at the same time I was excited. Before we danced to these songs I and some other students did our kapa haka performance. My heart was racing because I was so nervous but I overcame it.    

Election Knowledge Challenge - Kahoot

New Zealand's parliament have seen people come and go and it has been through some rough times in history. Because we were learning about the elections we created a Kahoot about the history of some of the general knowledge questions about the New Zealand Parliament. Me and my partners created 10 questions.

Static Advert - critical Analysis

Elections are now over and we have moved on to advertising. There are two different types of advertising and for this week we are learning about static advertising. Static advertising is a non moving ad like posters or billboards. For my ad I chose Whittaker's and just like Weetbix they use a celebrity to promote the brand or item they are selling. In LS2 we have been critically analysing our chosen ads to find the tricks they use. For example when a cereal is shown in an ad the milk is pva glue and the Mcdonald's burgers aren't even real burgers. One thing missing from ads are the important nutritional values.

Political Party Leaders Of New Zealand

Apart of our learning of the 2017 N.Z. elections we created a Presentation of all political party leaders in New Zealand. In LS2 we voted and Labour came up on top with 41/45 voting for them. In percentages that is 92% to Labour, National on 4%, Greens on 2%, and 1 person that did not vote.
