Summer Learning Journey Day 4 #2

Hundreds of years ago, young Māori children were taught to play a number of games, including Poi Rakau, Ki O Rahi, Koruru Taonga and Poi Toa. Read about each of these four games on the Rangatahi tu Rangatira website. Have you played any of them before? Isn’t it cool how the games have been passed down for generations?

Choose one game, and on your blog, tell us the (i) name of the game, (ii) the goal or purpose of the game, and (iii) two rules.


A large team game played between 2 teams, kioma and taniwha on a large circular field. Played for 4 quarters or 2 halves of a set time, teams alternate roles of Kīoma and Taniwha at half or quarter time.
Kīoma score by touching Pou/s with the Kī then running the Kī through Te Roto and placing it down in Pawero to convert pou touches into points. Kīoma stop the other team, Taniwha.
the main gole is to out gole the other teams.

athletics day

Walt: using descriptive language

Dear helpers thanks for helping with Athletics day. was fun and I enjoyed it heaps.

Athletics day was friday the 10th of November. When we got to school we lied up on  the hard cort in year bla boys and year bla girls. Then we went to the rotary shons.

My favourite part was when we played dodge ball. When it was my team's turn  I was the last one standing. It was fun but it was kinda hard.

I think that next year will be like the same as this year. Because it was the same last year but the rotations were in a different order.

It was fun I guess but some of it was boring and I learned… nothing. Overall it was good.

Task Description: last week we did athletics day.

Immersion Assembly Writing

Walt: use adjectives to improve our descriptive writing.

Have you played music before? Well today we had an immersion assembly at school, were the teachers told us what they were going to do this term. I’m looking forward to it!

This term the school theme is musical madness, which is all about music. All the different teams are doing similar things but not the same thing. We all watched teams 1-5 do there performances’ team one played snap with music playing and it made them feel different depending on the music, team two  played in the jungle, team three had a conversation with mostly music, team five did move and also did emotions.

Team 4’s move was like a apple music add! Mr goodwin, Mr Somerville, Miss parrant, Mrs buchanan, Miss west and Miss scanlan were commuting to school and listening to different music tracks. When the song changed so did the driver, when they got  to school they were listening to te wairua and Mr jacobson was in his van and sowe them being silly. At the end Mr jacobson was listening to a song and wind down the window. Team 4’s topic is all about making music and instruments.

I want to listen to rock music some time in this term, that would good. I hope that we can go to a concert but that is unlikely but possible. I also want to make music. This term is going to be fun.

I think that this term is going to be fun but it is not my favorite thing to learn about. This should be fun

WALT: structure a recount
On Thursday the 14th of  September we went to star dome. I was in the sume group as my
Friend Deavay and my step sister Then, we went to star dome because we’re learning about space. Have you gone to stardom before?

After we got off the bus we went to the playground on ( there is more than one tree on) one  tree hill. I climbed on those thing that is like a spider web. I wondered then climbed a tree and stayed there until it was time to go in.

When we went in to the stardome it was cool and kinda dark. When we went in we got ten mins to look at all of the things in the gallery, there wasn't enough time to look at things in my opinion. We did a quiz and it was kinda hard because it was a big rush.

In the movie we watched was about a man and a girl who went to space to find a planet to live on. The room’s roof was a bill to spin around and it was kinda trippy but it was cool. Thay went to the moon titan,europa and another moon but I forgot. It was fun!

I lend that one of the first men in space when he came back he landed in a farmer’s field. We sorer two asteroids  from mars and some were else I forgot a gen they were small. The Last thing I learned  that I can remember was that there is a hook in the sky

Task Description: on Thursday we went to star dome. then we did a recount about it.

Cross Country

Last Friday the 1st of September we did a cross country run. It was hot and muddy at the same time, I didn't like it. Have you done a cross country run before?

After lunch we lined up outside the class and went to the court. We sat down on the hot cort and wait. Me and my friend played chopsticks. It was boring and fun at the same time. Then mrs nua said for the 6 boys to line up and we did.

We were lined up and waited I got nervous and started shaking. The clappers went and we ran as fast as I could till I got to the 2nd cone then I Jogged for the rest of the time it was muddy. I came 7th to 9th, I think I did good!

After the run we went to class and sat on the mat and wait to go home. After that we got lollies from mrs Scanlan I got lemon flavor.  My dad got me and my brother from the front of the school.

I can jog more and maybe not get tired. That there are lots of fast people in the school, I am not one of them. It was fun and good for us.

Task description: on the 1st of September we did a cross Country run. Then we did a recount. it was kinda hard for me but I got it do and I think it is good.

Survivor Challenge

Facts about Space

Space Narrative

We have been in space for three years now it is 4020 (flash back) WOOW WOOW “We need to go to another planet” “We will go” “Good the earth is dying nothing will grow  you must go NOW!” “fine only if I can bring some pigs?” “GO GO GO”.  “OK Deavay  let's go” 10 mins later “This is mission control plast of in 10… 9… 8...  7… 6… 5… 4… 3… 2… 1… 0……………………… blast off. The ship is almost indestructible and has lost of fuel kaspate and low fuel consumption. The jets were sabil and fast. There is a E.M.P jet canon it’s a guns the shoots lost of homing missiles that cut of all power of the ship and plasma miniguns on each side.

Look a planet” “WOW!” SHHHHHH DOOM “We have landed air lock engaged” SHHH KIFF the planet is is good the air levels are good we can breath fine there is life here. “Look at all of these trees”  those aren't trees ther black with pink leaves” “onik”... “mooo” “buk buk” “baa”.  Now we must build… 10 years later, SHHH OMMM… SHHH OM  SSSSAAAA KKKKOOOOOOOM “kign nad gging kif dlag dalg ga ga ga ga ga ga!!” “translate…  this is a good planet we should live here and kill all things that are all reby here hahahahahaha!?”

“we must defend” “man the fort” “get the weapons the ship l we must defend” said a justice while getting a Plasma Minigun and a E.M.Ps Jet cannon, Justice and deavay ran outside and shot the E.M.P jet cannon and disabled there guns. Then shot them all with his Plasma minigun while deavay shot a E.M.P at the aliens ship but behind it were more aliens. Justice and Deavay kept shooting E.M.Ps at the enemy's forces ships but some aliens survived the fall of the aliens was not in vain they were made for war all those who survived were…  killed with no mercy.

There was one more ship and it was the mother ship before Justice and Deavay could shoot a E.M.P at it but no. the ship landed and hundreds of aliens came out with lots of  guns guns I say and their leader came out as well. They knew what to do they shoot a scud missile  and it blue them of the phase of the planet. We won  “yaaaaaay yaaaaaaaaaaay” they seid in a sarcastic tone.

Like we do on earth. We will populate it, and kill it and live. We will build homes then gather more things and build more homes.
