LJ - Reuse And Attribute An Image



WALT : Reuse and Attribute An Image : Today I Didn't Use Regular Images . Instead I Went To Google Images , Clicked The Tools Bar and then Clicked The Option Labelled For Reuse .  Ones that we are able to use for free . Which probably have licenses or not .
If We were going to use the images , We had to give the owner credit because It was their image . We also had to list the license type And The Author .
What I found hard was looking for the  image I wanted . Because of the labelled for reuse option , it didn't give me the best options .

Polyfest Experience 2017 - LJ



Experience At Polyfest


During Our Whanaungatanga Experience Last Week ,  All the year 7/8’s were going to polyfest To bond with our Teachers and Friends At Polyfest
The Year 7/8’s Were excited for it . I was excited too because this was my first Polyfest , Not for me but some others it was their first time as well . But For me I found that little strange because I usually thought that polyfest was on the weekends . It was still on for saturday but we got to go on thursday as a school to see the performances . Not all of them , But some of them . The Full - Length Polyfest event was on Saturday where it is there that the schools perform .


On Thursday though , It was TPS ( Us ) , Point England , And some other schools . The only school I knew was Point England . Some school came in Mufti . Or they wear mufti to school every day . We got to go in for free .


So we got in our lines , And Then we head off together but we split when we got to where All the food stations were  . Some went to buy their food with their money but some just ate the food their parents gave them . After that ,  We went left while the other groups went with Ms Thompson  And Ms Aireen  .  My group went to the Maori Stage .The performances were  loud . It was more of the girls that were louder in their performance .


After ,We stood up and left the stage because we were aloud to spend a lot of time there . After , we went to A Niuean stage from the school Auckland Girls Grammar School , Or for Short AGGS . I thought I would see my sister there just because she said that she was part of the Niuean group . During the performance Ms Kyla was kind enough to buy us Ice blocks  . I liked the performance


We also spent a lot of time there before It was Lunch . We came back to where the other food stations were . Near the Samoan stage  . And Surprisingly Mai.FM was there Shooting a video for the TV . He let us into the camera so we can say loudly , “ Welcome to polyfest 2017 ! ” . We then went down to the other Food Stands near the Maori stage and Talked with our friends about what they saw and liked . Also to buy more food . At the end , we were given a bag full of things for us to take home . Like Sunglasses , Polyfest Tattoos , And Some Sunscreen .

We spent a little more time there , But we had to go back to school to take a rest in the hall and wait for the time to finish so we could go home . Some slept in the hall for a little , while others played rugby . When time was Up , We had to go home . To get ready for the sleepover .

LJ - Saving Poorman's Stream - Summarising The Text .

Mitchell Chandler , Who was just biking past the stream that runs alongside his school and after seeing it had been polluted , He Decided to do something about that . There were dumped Chairs , Mostly chip packets , Glass and plastic bottles . His school has checked it every term for Water Clarity , Temperature , Flow Rate , And Acidity , By Using SHMAK -  Stream Health Monitoring And Assessment  Kit . Mitchell Also said that “ People are Lazy ! Instead of taking their rubbish home they  just throw it away ! ” . To get the schools to help he had to get the principal's permission to do this Clean - Up .
Being Granted permission he and students from other schools started helping with the cleanup . And within one hour , They managed to clean half the stream and get five bags full of rubbish . Surprisingly , There was a Shoe , A Backpack , An old paint bucket and The Top Of A Vacuum cleaner .
They even did it on The world environment day  But they never walked in with no protection . They had Protective gloves , gumboots , Collection bags and buckets for extra rubbish . He also said that “ We need to help save the environment and not harm animals or nature  . Were all part of the Ecosystem  and if we don’t protect it everything will collapse .”

LJ - What Is The Main Idea ? - 2017



WALT : Read The Text and record Keywords/Phrases that answers these questions.

LJ - Kiwi Can Reflection - 7th March 2017

WALT : Cooperate With Our Teammates.
Kiwi Can - 7th March , 2017 .

Today for Kiwi Can we had to get into 4 separate groups . We chose our groups , And as soon as I got into my group , looked around that then thought that the groups were even . I don't even think they were even . We then played a game called " 15 Seconds " . With our partner beside us we had to talk to them . My partner was Vuni . Vuni went first as He decided what he liked  - The topics were , Your favourite food , Your favourite thing to do on the weekend , Favourite Colour ,And something else that I had forgotten . Vuni's Choices were - Favourite food - KFC  , His Favourite Colour - Blue , His Favourite thing to do on the weekend - Play On Bike Or Laptop . And The other I had forgotten . But we played it for quite a while switching partners . My Last partner was Aumau . I forgot his too.

Few minutes after we played a decoding game , Where the teacher set up chairs and there were patterns to it  that we had to solve .There were two groups in different spaces . 2 groups in the same place had to play against each other . While the other two in their space did the same . My group was filled with just boys . There were no girls . In the other group , It was mostly filled with girls . With about 4 Boys in it . For every turn the groups took , We never knew if we were gonna get it right or wrong . So we started to watch our teammates moves on where they got it right or wrong . Getting it wrong was where we tried to stay away from . Every member of the group went for a go  , Even if they were gonna get it wrong or not . Some got it right in one go even . The rounds went on for quite a while and there was quite a bit of volume going on in the hall because the excitement of getting it right was what everyone had . But I thought we were winning , But the other team was . For me , I found it weird because I thought we were getting it right mostly .

It ended with the opposite team winning , and on the other side it was the other team on the right side that won the game . We finished with the same old chant because we barely came up with one yet . We ended with that and then we went back to class .
