Touch Rugby

Today, LS2 went to touch rugby for kiwi sport. First we warmed up and then we learnt some drills. Then we split up boys and girls and we went off. The boys went with Mr M and the girls went to Trevor (Kiwi sport Coach) The boys played a game where you had to pass the ball and if you dropped it your out. The girls played rats and rabbits. After a while we switched.

Cyber Smart Search

This is my DLO about Cyber smart. LS2 was learning how to narrow a search. The task was to create a DLO showing other people how to get the best search when they are in google. The most important thing is that more keywords can make your search easier. I think that this will help me when I am struggling to find information in the future.

3D Sketching

Today at tech the year 7's were practicing to draw 3D shapes. Our teacher was Miss Ferguson. First we learnt what a Oblique is. Oblique is the side of something. Then we learnt about Isometric shapes. Isometric shapes are parallel to each other. After that we learnt about 1 point perspective. It is a never ending shape. When drawing this you will need a vanishing point. Lastly we learnt about tones and toned of our drawings.

Owl Narrative

Leap Of Faith

As I was glaring at the Mountain from my dirty, rugged nest I wondered what life would be like if I could fly and see the world myself. I was only a baby and I hadn’t learned to fly yet, I had to be a bit older says my mum(Mum Owl). I live high up in the tree with my mum and brother. I was feeling really sad that I could not fly but one day I would.
“Come over here baby owl now is the time you are going to fly” Squeeks Mum Owl
“Ok i'll be right there” I said with a happy tone.
I can’t believe it, I'm gonna learn to fly

At this point I was really nervous because I have never left this twig filled nest and this is like my sanctuary, My home. I looked down and saw that leaf’s that covered most of the floor and fallen branches that Mum Owl used to sit on.
“Are you ready?” Says Mum Owl in a happy tone.
“I Don’t need to fly Mum who needs to fly?” says Baby Owl in a nervous, shaky voice.
I gathered up courage to jump but I started to panic mid air and flapped my wings like I was getting taken. Boom! I hit the ground.

When I woke up it was hard to do anything so I just stayed on the twig filled floor. After I got better I was feeling disappointed in myself because I wanted to show my family that I could do fly but I couldn’t. It was just another boring day staring at the mountain from the nest.

“Get up” Shouted Mum Owl as she gestured me to come with her. I got up and ran with her to the edge of the nest.
“Now what you need to do is rotate your wings” As Mum Owl was showing me
“Like this” As I Copied.
I was ready and nothing could stop me. All the adrenaline in my body was telling me to go. I tucked myself into a ball and ran as fast as I could. I jumped. A second later I flapped my wings. I looked at the floor thinking I was gonna fall again but to my surprise I wasn’t. I will never forget the freedom I felt on that day. The wind breathing on my feathers. This was the happiest I’ve ever been.

“Thank you Mum Owl” I shouted as I was flying towards the mountain that I had been gazing at everyday. “Freedom!” I cried as I was landing. I could see my nest in the tree from the mountain. From that day forward I learnt that if things don’t go your way just get back up and try again because it might work.

Moral: Always try again if you don’t get something your first time.  

This is my Owl Narrative that I wrote yesterday. I had to pretend that I was a baby owl taking my first flight. I had fun writing this because I liked pretending that I was a fling bird.  


Yesterday I was learning about Albert Einstein. I was practicing my sensitizing skills. I had to write what I already knew about him then I read some information about him. If you want to practice click here. I think it was good practice for me because it gave me a new perspective about Albert Einstein.

Rhythm Interactive

Today Johnny and Lucy from Rhythm Interactive came to Panmure Bridge School and taught us about drumming and rhythms. There also was a message and that message was that 'Actions are louder than words'. I liked how Johnny didn't talk to us for the show to get the message that actions speak louder than words

Water In School

This is my DLO that I have made with Daniel, CJ, Calvin and myself. This DLO is about water in schools. From now Panmure bridge school is now not allowed to bring your own drink to school. If you want a drink in school you will have to go to the tap or bring a water bottle.

Yr7 Collaborative Popplet

This term our inquiry focus was on the Bartailed Godwit but in Maori it is known as the Kuaka. The Yr7's have created a popplet together that tells informations about the appearance, habitat, Migration diet and what effects Godwit/Kuaka in different ways. We also added in some images and videos to give a clear picture of the special bird.  Did you know that they have a 8-9 day non stop flight, this adds up to one whole week and one day which is a short period of time considering they are flying long distance. We look forward to learn more about the unique birds.

Leadership Word Clouds

Today the year 7's of Panmure bridge were learning about leadership qualities. We were doing this to grow our leadership because next year we will become the leaders of our school. We will also have to help the young kids to do the things that they're supposed to do. Also the year 7 students will vote on who will be the Head leaders, Manaiakalani leaders and Sports leaders.
