Tech @ Tamaki College

Tech at Tamaki College was great. Today was our new rotation so we changed to graphics. This term we have to design clocks customized by our own. We first had to make a college about ourselves adding in pictures of what we like our favourite food and etc.  We then had to gather different types of clocks such as a digital clock or an alarm clock. I am excited to see how this turns out because this very different.

Reduce, Reuse and Recycle

Today I have been working with Fifita, Viva, Te Wai, Calvin, and AJ. On our Reduce, Reuse, Recycle DLO it shows you about our opinion and and questions that we have answered. We have worked together to get it done.


In writing I had to make a DLO based on Similes. A simile compares two things using the words 'like' or 'as'.  In my DLO you will see what a simile is and some other examples of a simile. For example she is as quiet as a mouse or that is good as gold, these are all examples of what a simile looks like. I have also added in images to give examples.

Narrative- Skateboard

The skateboard was racing down the road with Amella on it. It was speeding down the hill like a cheetah. Amella was worried that something might happen to her or her cousin, but she was having too much fun. Her cousin came down the hill straight after. Then crashed right into Amella. Amella hit right into a car that was backing at of a driveway.

Her leg was was aching in pain as her cousin rushed over. Amella roared, louder than a lion. Amella told her cousin to go and get help. She was lying on the road looking at her wobbly leg, waiting for  somebody to come and help. While she was waiting for her cousin to came back with  help Amella was gasping for air. A man came past and was looking at her the man said are you alright “No i’m not I think my leg is broken”

As the man picked up his phone he dialled 111 and ask for the paramedics. The ambulance didn’t get to Amella fast as they thought because they couldn’t see her but Amellas cousin got back with her mum and dad. They racing down in a harred  to  Amella and was asking her what happened to you. “I can’t talk right now I am into much pain” said Amella. Can you take me to the hospital.

When Amella arrived at the hospital there were so many people waiting to be seen by an nurse. At last it was Amellas time to get seen by an nurse. The nurse took Amella to take a x-rays  so they could see all her bones.   

Our focus in writing today was to understand how to use and punctuate dialogue.  8 synonyms with the word said and explain how to use it. .we have been working on our writing Narrative and writing a story and thinking about our Language Features and Fanboys.

During the morning and middle block we did dance. For dance Mrs Anderson said we had to create our own warm up routine. My partner was Mia and nazlla, we watched warm up videos to get some inspiration. Making up the moves was easy but doing the them was really tricky. Warming up and stretching before you have a sports event it can help you move a lot easier. But if you warm up and stretch to much you will lose some of your strength to do something. This was a very fun task to complete and cant wait till next week.

Pizza Problem


In this DLO I had to work out a strategy and figure out the problem to this.  I have written the question, the clue and my strategy or my way of solving the problem.  This helped us with our fractions, multiplication and division. This was a tricky problem to solve but I successfully figured it out.

Something I have read or watched that is like this is...
Something I know about that is like this is...
My reaction to this story is...

  • Magenta: A movie I have watched was an ANZAC movie about the war in Gallipoli.

  • Shakaia: The book I have read like this is poppy and Wishy Washy.

  • Mishaan: Something I have read was the War and Peace.

  • Shakaia: This reminds me about last year when I went to the Museum with my class.

  • Mishaan: This book reminds me about when we went to Howick historical village and saw all the house that they lived in back in 1982.

  • Magenta: This reminds of the book my old teacher read to us and it was called the Poppy.

  • Magenta: When my teacher read the story to us I felt like it was a funny book but then it became a mystery book.

  • Shakaia: My reaction to this story is inspiring because they are a  caring couple and this book is very funny.

  • Mishaan: My reaction was that it was sad because the interesting bit was he took all the doors off and the sad bit was that they died at the end.

This DLO that Shakaia Magenta and I had to make a connection in the story and kind of compare it to a text or a film, the world and the how we felt about the story.  One of my examples was how I watched the film " The Maze Runner" this related to the story because the country was not a democracy meaning that it wasn't ruled by the people of the land.

'ight' Chunky Challenge

This weeks chunky challenge was "ight". We had to find words that had "ight" in the end of the word, the middle of the word and the start of the world. I gathered up all the words that I knew that had the chunk "ight" in it and added in the new words I found.  Then I made a word cloud about it and it turned out to be like this.

Current Events

In this task we had to write about a current event that was happening in the world. We focused on one event that had happen which was China banning Ivory sellers. My point of view for this was that it is quite good because they will now stop killing animals and there will be less poaching. But I also think this is bad because people will start losing their jobs which means that their will be less money for the families.
