During term 2 the Students of Te Ngahere and Te Maunga were doing some art based around koru and kowhaiwhai patterns each representing something, the walt was to draw koru and kowhaiwhai patterns. We did it in a process starting with crayon and with the side we went up and turned to make a koru.

Then we moved on to practicing with pencil and finally we made our final piece.  We did an outline with pencil, painted it with metallic paint, then finally redo the outline with vivid/sharpie.

For Student Led Conferences Te Ngahere made a google drawing, We made it to help show off our learning to our parents so that way they know what we have been doing here in Te Ngahere.

For the subjects we did reading, writing, maths, inquiry and art. I didn’t go to Student Led Conference but it was really fun to make and I was one of the first to finish.

Last week the whole school went to Waitangi Treaty Grounds. we did lots of fun activities. The first thing we we're told to to do was to make manu aute out of niko and we weaved it together, we got into groups of two, I choose my friend and we were the first to finish.
Than we played a game where two people had a blindfold with things similar to maracas and two people had to tag each other it was so much fun. After that we did a game called matou maui where there are two lines of rope and when someone called matou you jump all the way to the right but if they call maui you jump all the way to the left and if they call ki waenganui you jump in the middle. For the last task we planted some trees in a part of the forest and we learned that all the trees out by the whare were all  planted by very important people.

Than after that we finally left it was a pretty fun yet tiring day.

Making Ice cream

On friday week 7 Te Ngahere made ice cream but we were only allowed to make it once everyone had finished their learning plan. we also did some learning about it for reading where we had to make a slide show and answer the questions.

We also did a recount for writing, each student had different WALT’s some had punctuation while others had paragraphs. mine one was metaphores and similes I also used alliteration because of some help from a teacher.

Some time in week two an author named Tim Tipene visited our school to tell us about his books. He even told us why he became an author and about his teachers and friends and it was really exciting.

He has written about ten books like Taming the
Taniwha, Hinemoa te toa and Maui  - the sun catcher plus a bunch more.

My animation

The Cat in the Bag

Natsu was walking down the street, as he passed the market stands built up along the brick road, looking for his cat, named Happy. As he was walking in between the crowds that huddled by the stands, off to both sides of the street he saw something strange going  on in the alley, in between to large inns, as he moved closer he saw two men with clothing as black as the night sky.

Natsu got even closer to find they were holding a bag as the other one was putting the cat inside the bag.
“Hey you… give me back my cat!” Natsu yelled to the shady men, who ran off into the dark dingy alley and Natsu followed behind.

The  swift duo had almost escaped but then Fwosh. The duo had been surrounded by a circle of fire.
Natsu walked up through the fire  without a scratch he grabbed the bag from one of the men and looked inside to find his pet cat, Happy. Not too long later the two men were  in prison.
The End

For the last week of the term we started an animation about our narrative stories, I was working on speech marks when writing this story and I think I could continue working on speech marks.

On Friday we did the triathlon and we had to do three things swimming, biking and running I didn’t really like it, mostly because it was really boring.
