Read one of the many ways Toma helps others...


IALT:Help others with commenting on other people's blogs.

Today I got to reply to one of my friends that commented on one of my blog post.
I feel happy for what I said back to my friend Alo because next time he blogs on other people's blogs he can remember what I said to him.What I found challenging was trying to pick the right words to help him with his commenting.What I didn't find challenging was telling him the positive things about what he did.

Hopefully you guys enjoyed reading my blog post. Feel free to leave a comment down below on what I need to work on next time or you can comment down below on what you found good about this blog post. Bye :)

Practicing on typing games have helped me to get better with typing while I am blogging. Playing learning games has also strengthened my blogging.

I think the best thing to do is go next to someone you have not spoken to before and just do what I do best which is to just stare at the screen and keep your hands moving.

I would like to improve more with my Maths. I am getting better but I know that I can always improve.

Check out Helen's blogpost about KiwiSport this week!

WALT: combine different movements in our dance routine in a group.

Today I will be blogging about what we did for KiwiSport this week.
We had to practise in our groups and make up our own dance moves and try and make our dance longer than the other groups. It was a competition, in my group it was Helen (me), Metui and Alo. When it was our turn to show our performance I was nervous, but I participated and at the end of our performance our hip hop teacher Jazmine said that it was really good and that we made her dance as well. The topic was about freestyle.

What I enjoyed was that I got to learn a different dance move, also that I contributed in the performance and I got the hang of it. One thing I need to work on is to become more confident in showing my moves and sharing ideas with my peers. My negatives at KiwiSport was that there were people laughing at other students performance. I had a great time at Hip Hop class today and I hope we learn different dance moves next week. MANY THANKS.Image result for hip hop dances gifImage result for smurf dance gif hip hop😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊

Paying It Forward...

Have you ever showed Manaakitanga by helping someone across the road?
What about showing Whanaungatanga by helping someone pick up papers that dropped on the ground even though you're in a rush to get somewhere?
Have you ever been inspired by the caring acts of other people?
Well our class have been watching this video which was based on paying it forward. Everyone in this video was inspired by another person, then they inspired another person.
Everyone was helping each other.
Check out this video, and leave your thoughts in the comment section below😊

Check out this post from Matthew! - What am I grateful for?

WALT: To write down what we are grateful for

What Am I Grateful For?

Image result for Family

Choice #1
Statement: I am grateful for my family because I was able to be happy. But if I didn’t have a family I would die and be sad. But luckily God gave me a family because he wants me to be happy and he wants all of us to a family so we all can be happy. I am grateful for my mum, dad, brother, sister and baby sister. I am grateful for them because I love them.

Explanation: Why am I grateful for my family. I am grateful for my family because they help me stay happy, and I am grateful for my family because they help me stay alive. My explanation for my family is very good because when I am with my family I feel safe. And sometimes when I am not with my family I don’t feel safe. And that is why I am grateful for my family because they make me feel safe.

Example: For example when I am walking with my family I feel safe. And when I am at home with my family they make me happy. But when I am home myself. I feel left out like no one wants to talk to me. Because they sometimes go somewhere and I am at home myself doing something like watch tv. Or go watch movies on the netbook. So that is why I am grateful for my family because they make me happy.

Image result for education

Choice #2
Statement: Another thing that I am grateful for is education. Because if I did not know what additions was then I could've been dumb. But if I did not have an education then I would’ve done bad stuff and end up in jail. But I want a good education because I want to have a good job. But my education is not good but I am going to make it good.

Explanation: My explanation for education is going to be strong because my education is going to be good and I am gonna make it good. Because my education is low right now. But I am going to make it high. And I am going to make it high by  listening and doing good by doing my homework. I am going to make my education high by studying very hard when i am at home and practice the subjects when I am at home.

Example: For example when I go to college and my education is low I am going to start working hard so when I do a test I can get a good result. But if I don’t start working hard that means I will get a bad result and I don’t want a bad result. I want a good result so when I show my parents they can be proud of me because I have worked very hard to get a good result. And when I get a good result that might mean that my future will be good. But if it is a bad result and that might mean that you will have a bad future because you do not know anything.

Image result for Sports

Choice #3
Statement: And the last thing that I am grateful for the ability to play sport. Because I love sport and sport is the one thing that I do around here. Sports is the one that makes me energetic. Sports is the one that makes me happy to. Because when I run or play rugby that makes me happy because when I run with something like the ball. The ball is the one that makes me happy.

Explanation: My explanation for sports is that everytime I play I make my friends happy because when I play with them they share the ball. And the thing is that when I don’t share the ball they get angry because they want a turn to run with the ball. So that is why I share the ball because i want the game to be fair and humble. Because if it is not humble we all start to get into a fight. So when I play with my friends I start to play fair and start to be humble so we do not get into a fight.

Example: For example when I play and someone causes trouble I can tell them to cool down. And when I play with my friends and they are cooled down i can go tell them to say sorry to each other. Because sometimes when I play with them they sometimes get angry easily and i want the game to be humble because I don’t want to have any fights when we play. And when we play Basketball we sometimes get angry because when someone shoots on us everyone starts saying “ ohhhhhhhhh” and that is when everyone goes hard. But the thing is I should worry about myself when I play sports so I can make sure that I am safe and not hurt.

That is all I have for you today thank you for reading.

Matariki Tree Planting

On Tuesday 21st June we got to celebrate Matariki by planting some trees!
This happened at the Paddington Reserve.  The Kura Kaupapa and Mad Ave were able to partner with the council to begin this process which is a development on the Omaru and Enviro mahi they are doing.

The aim is to create enviro movements that everyone can collaborate into so that we create a cohesively aligned voice for the Ecology. 
Take a look at what our Kia Manawanui syndicate experienced.
It was SO much fun!!! πŸŒΏ πŸ˜Š πŸŒ³
