#ANZAC Poem! =p

Waiting and waiting in the pouring rain
A mother of five struggles with daily life
She provides a lot but can still feel the pain
She sits there pregnant, three months until due
She prays her husband will return before the month of June
“I will make it” he says “for that baby is mine”
He has priorities, but his family is still number one
He’s determined to see his baby son

This poem here was a literacy activity I had to complete ASAP. The activity was about making our own poem about the ANZAC soldiers and what they thought, what others thought, how their families felt etc. My main character in my poem is based on the mother, because I really thought about how much the mothers missed their husbands and how the children felt when they were waving goodbye to their one and only father.

#Equipment They Used In WW1!

This week in Zeal Zone, we were in Miss Peato's group learning about the training that the soldiers in WW1 did before they went to war. In this first activity, we had to create a slide with the equipment that soldiers had with them when they went to war.

#Fractions =)

What I learnt about fractions tonight is that its important to read what your trying to figure out because it will help you to say more and to gain more confidence in trying to work out a problem.  I worked on my Maths groups exercise that we use at school. It was all about fractions and multiplications.  It was fun trying to work it out with my mum, I hope to do it again.
Practice, practice, practice!!

#Te Oro =D

As you may know, Glen Innes has a new building called, Te Oro. Te Oro is placed between, the police station and the G.I library. Te Oro is a place for people who love performing arts to show off their talents. There is a recording studio, dance studio, drama studio, etc. As you know, I love to sing, so I decided to sign up for two workshops. The workshops were called, Beats And Pieces and Vocal Classes. I signed up with my aunty Ruisa.

“Beats And Pieces” is about how you could make beats for producing your own music. We used a similar program to Garageband. The project we had to do, was to make our own beat and try to put some lyrics into the beat to make it a little song. I had a lot of fun making beats and listening to other beats to. My highlight was learning new stuff and meeting new people. My lowlight was being the only girls.

“Vocal Classes” is about learning the proper way to warm up your vocals. I learn’t alot of ways of warming up my vocals. We learn’t about, what helps to get some confidence in your high pitched voice and what helps you on how to be confident in your low voice. All the warm ups helped me get control of my voice and also getting better with my soprano harmony's for my church band. I had loads of fun learning about what helps your vocals and the important parts of warming up and singing. My highlight was learning more things about singing. My lowlight was that the lesson was only 1 hour!
I hope I’ll go there again and meet new people and make new friends. I also want to try new things like, drama classes, Cook Island dancing and maybe Samoan siva classes. But I will certainly be going to the same workshops to continue to learn even more! If you want to sign up for a workshop, just click on this link…. Te Oro Workshops.

#Fractions =)

This presentation above the text is about fractions. I had used Google drive to create the presentation. The reason why I made this, is because it is a DLO my group had to all contribute in. We all had to make 20 fractions out of the tools from Google drive.

I had alot of fun making this presentation and I hope to make more. Thanks to Jordenne and Jennifer for helping me and encouraging me to finish.
