Last Monday at Volleyball coach Elenor taught us how to serve. We also learnt what our positions were. The positions was how to relax and shifting so we can get the ball.

While we were practicing how to serve the wind was pushing the balls back to us.

My prediction about today will be us recapping from last week.It will also be about the rules.


A week ago for DMIC we had some word problems and number problems. It was difficult to focus on the numbers because of the words.For the word problems we could use times tables. 

It was challenging for us to work in groups and it was hard to answer the questions.

 In Benghazi there was a ship called Nino Bixio that was travelling across the ocean and under the ocean was a British submarine that saw the Nino Bixio so then it sent a torpedo to go and destroy the Nino Bixio. Benghazi and T.P.S I think they called this road Benghazi so they can remind us about when they fought for us.

Hope First Panmure Bridge.

One sunny Friday Kia Toa, went to see the first Panmure Swing Bridge. We went with Mrs Sharma, Miss Ashley and Miss Jade and some of our parents. The first thing we did was hike to the Panmure Yacht Boating Club where the old Panmure Swing Bridge was made. Then we all gathered together and talked about how the Swing Bridge would open and close for all the boats, ships and punts. After talking about the first Panmure Swing Bridge we went to see where a man that use to paddle back and forth from Panmure to Pakuranga fields. That exact same bridge was starting to become week and rusty so it got demolished.

In America about 2 weeks ago there was a footbridge that collapsed on a 8 lane highway the footbridge was probably made out of concrete and steel for pedestrians. There were skyscrapers and during the collapse there were four people that got seriously injured and there were emergencies and there were over ten survivors but they all went to go get the other four people.

Something that was new for me was that I have never heard about the Panmure Swing Bridge before and that it is new for me.

Hope sgraffito of Mokoia pa.

My sgraffito shows Mokoia Pa which was the Maori that grew vegetables with fertile soil. The Fortified Pa was a village where the Maori people lived. Next to the volcano was the Tamaki River that had lots of fish and was amazing for transport on a waka.

WALT: I learnt how to create a scraffito. I learnt about Mokoia Pa.We also learnt about the two previous Panmure Bridges.

My challenge was that I have never done a sgraffito.
My challenge was learning about Mokoia pa.

Waka Tapu by Jeff Evans.

I listened and read this article.
In a nutshell I learnt . . .

 It's about the two Wakas Te Aurere and Ngahiraka Mai Tawhiti sailed to Rapanui (Easter land).

They traveled form New zealand to Rapanui. their first stop was Tubuai island then the crew sailed to Mangareva.

It happened and they started traveling in the year of 2012.

 They are talking about the polynesian voyages and Te Aurere and Ngahiraka Mai Tawhiti and Hekenukumai.

 The voyages was the dream of master waka builder Hekenukumai Busby.

The voyages traveled by going on the boat.
