Basketball Tournament

On Thursday week 4 we had a Basketball tournament. We competed against many schools from around Glen Innes, There were a lot of different schools there and it was quite nerve racking. My team and I had 3 games, we lost 2 and won 1. I had a lot of fun competing against the other school, but the only thing that wasn’t really fun was when the refs wouldn’t call any of the fouls that the other teams did but other than that it was good. We got to see how other teams played and their techniques on team work. Overall I think that my team won and done well on teamwork and cheering each other on

Measuring Length

Today in maths, Team Tui drew a random shape to measure its length – distance.  We had to get into a group of 3 to work together to pick and create a shape. It didn ´ t have to be an ordinary shape just as long as we could measure it. We used string to measure the curvy lines and used  rulers to measure the straight lines. In total the perimeter was 48.8cm which converts into 488mm.

Cybersmart Challenge

Our cybersmart challenge was to learn about doing the right thing on Google meet. For some people who didn’t know how to use google meet now does. We learnt about how and where we should be seated which  is the wall as our  background and no one in our family our friends are seen walking around that could be distracting to whoever is in our call.

Taniwha Art

For Art in Team Tui room 11 did something different to the rest. Our Art task was to create a Taniwha. We had the choice to choose 3 of the stars from the Matariki cluster and fill up each space with different patterns representing each 3 and then fill the rest of the space up with any patterns you want.

Working Collaboratively in a Doc

For cybersmart in Team Tui our task was to partner up with a buddy and then work on one doc and play Tic Tac Toe and write a story about whatever we could come up with. My buddy was Uheina, we did our task that was assigned and completed it. This was our attempt at the cybersmart challenge and this was our finishing product.
