Matariki - Joshua V Maata Sa Kae

 Today Joshua V, Maata and Sa Kae I were making a poster for Matariki. We first made a summary about Matariki by choosing important words in the information. After that we used those words to help us write the sentences in our summary.

I learnt that the other side of the world calls the Matariki stars Pleiades. In English Matariki is called tiny eyes or eyes of god. On the right you can see some facts we wrote down. There are 6 Sisters and 1 mother so that makes 7 stars. Did you know that in 2017 there are 9 Matariki Stars?

Dance Evaluation movie

This morning for dance Mrs Anderson recorded our dance. We had to present it to our group so we could evaluate it. We need to make sure we are facing the front so our faces can be seen. I think our timing has improved but we still need to work on making our angles sharper.

Maata - Soft Plastic

This afternoon I was learning about soft plastic. Mrs Caroline  one of our first aid teachers was teaching LS2 about soft plastics and what that is. I created this DLO about what soft plastic and facts you may or may not know about soft plastics. For example if I had a piece of glad wrap I would be able to scrunch it into a ball. That is considered as soft plastic. If I had a biscuit tray and I tried to scrunch it into a ball it will be a lot harder to scrunch up. This is my finished work. I really enjoyed doing this, have fun reading!
