Image result for together everyone achieves more
On Week 5 Kia Manawanui have a trip going to Camp Raglan for 4 days and 3 nights.This week and next week we are going to be doing some fun activities that are similar to the activities we are doing at Camp Raglan.
Today my class had to be in seprate groups.
One team had T for together,another group had E for everyone,another group had A for achieves and the last group had M for More.

What we did in our groups was each of us was given a word and for like 1-2 mins and we each went over word and wrote down words that kind of mean:
Image result for together everyone achieves moreDown below I will have each word of team that has a meaning to me and some words that I think kind of relate to that:
Enjoy Reading!
What does Together mean to me?
Together to me looks like Whanugatanga which means building relationships with others even tho your different.Together also looks like a team striving to success and also having to have uplifts to each other so they could have a growth mindset to keep on trying till they get it.
  1. Everyone
  2. Partipcate and Contributing 

Image result for together everyone achieves moreE-Everyone
What does Everyone mean to me?
Everyone to me means a team including everyone to try there best in have a growth mindset even tho they fail.Everyone also mean including other people and showing tolerance even tho they are different still inculd them.
  • Together
  • Team
  • All Inculded

What does Achieve mean to me?
Achieve means to me setting goals for yourself to be more confidence.Achieves also means try your best and also keep on going even if you fail just lift your head up high and keep strong.
  1. Accomplish
  2. Sucuess
  3. Goal
Image result for achieveWhat does More mean to me?
More means to inculd everyone and also to get more people.Like learn more about them and to also have fun because at camp we are going to be doing a a lot of fun things.
  1. Extra
  2. Bigger
  3. Everyone
-Enjoy Reading!
There you have it.The meaning of T.E.A.M which was what I think the meaning of it and 3 words that I think means to each word.

I really enjoy doing this task because how I got to learn some things that I need to do in camp which is:
Work together as a team and also to combine with everyone together to be one big Kia Manawanui Team.
I think this lesson is very good cause it will help you learn a lesson to how you can communicate with others which is getting others to be together,having everyone included,having goals to achieve and adding up more people into the team.

Camp Vision - TEAM

We are going to Camp Raglan in week 5. We have camp programme twice a week to help us prepare and get ourselves organised for camp. At camp we will be focussing on developing our skills related to two key competencies which are 'Relating to Others' and 'Participating and Contributing'.

We have put together this DLO which is about about T.E.A.M which will help us strengthen our skills related to the two key competencies mentioned above. Going to camp is all about working as a TEAM. We look forward to going to Camp Raglan.

IALT : know what's my negative comment and positive comment.
Today in the morning session we have  Tai Chi at first I thought that we did not have Tai Chi because their little people because of how there was a soccer tournament and many classmates went to the soccer tournament. By the way I'm really happy about what we did in Tai Chi it was very fun that's what I'm gonna be going to be talking about what I did in Tai Chi. So if your wondering what we do in Tai Chi is we do kung fu moves , games and negative comment/positive comment/random act of kindness.

So our Master is Mr.Gordon and he is a kind person. When we arrived he first talked about life and this time our room is in the music room is usually in the hall and now is in the music room because some people use the hall.

Related imageThe moves we were doing was an animal move because Tai Chi is all about Kung fu. So the animal move we were doing is Monkey , Crain , Tiger and Praying mantis(Think so). Mr. Gordon Tai Chi moves are so fast when we copy him with moves because his already a master. Also if your doing the Tai Chi moves u also have to move like a water.  I found challenging doing the Tai Chi moves is to do the tiger move cuz it’s hard and Mr. Gordon does it fast. I didn’t found challenging was trying my best and never giving up. I need to work on my animal moves cuz this just the first time I did Tai Chi in my whole life + I don’t what’s Tai Chi but now I know because I do Tai Chi.

So after that we have to be in a circle and talk about what’s our positive comment and negative comment. So my positive comment is going on my dad friends wedding and my negative comment forgetting to do my work/blogging in the holidays and we also have to do random act of kindness. My random act of kindness is cleaning my room.

So Mr. Gordon decided to do a game because we have plenty of time and we go back to class in 10:00 but It wasn’t 10:00 yet. So the games we were playing is animal , famous person and super heroes. What you basically do is u have to do the acting if it’s your turn and people has to pick what your gonna do which is animal , famous person and superheroes and if the person get it right first it’s ur turn and u get to act. For me I didn’t got a turn and I was actually happy cuz I don’t want to act actually.
So yahh that’s it and I hope you like my Tai Chi reflection.
Many thanks!

Inquiry Topic Reflection by Akih

Image result for Science
WALT: know what I did in my moon lesson with..
Science is also our new subject because how we I haven't been on a science subject in T.P.S. Now we have a lesson to Mrs. Komor and Mrs. Fepulia about the moon. I learned some interesting facts about Mrs.'s teachings. Komor while the moon is gray and the moon has holes because the astroids enter the moon. 
Image result for MoonDo I have questions? , like

- How come the moon is gray?
- How deep are the holes?
- Why a red moon, how did it do?

I also learned a word which is vadality
It means something that is true. We also got hands and what we know about the moon. If you answer this means that your on the other side is left behind and if you miss your rights. For me I answered the moon as gray.
Image result for facts
 Then the room 9 people swap with us so we went to Mrs. Fepulia group which is in room 9. So in Mrs. Fepulia science class we also talked about the moon and 4 main phrases actually there is more than 4. We also watched some videos about the moon.

That's all and see you in my next blog again about what I learnt and more.
Cya and have fun!

Tai Chi by Aletheia

Tai Chi
This week on Wednesday was the girl's first session at tai chi with the teacher Mr Gordon.

Image result for tai chiWhen we first came in he introduced himself and talked about life.It was very sad hearing that doctors told him that his daughter was that going to live in her teenage years because how she had heart conditions but she actually made it.

When doctors told Mr Gordon and his wife that his daughter would not make teenage years he wanted to spend the most time with her.
Right now she is 24 years old.

He does tai chi to help people with sickness like how his daughter had.These tai chi moves were taught to his daughter when she was a little kid and she still does it because how it helps her even tho she has a half heart.

When he finshed off with his taking we stood up and did some tai chi moves and then moved on to Kung Fu moves.

When we finished bloth things we all sat in the middle and talked about something positive that we did and something negative that we did not like.Also talk about a random act of kindness.

My positive thing that I really enjoyed was the holidays when me and my family went to camp to see the whole family.I was not sure with a negative thing and did not have a random act of kindness which I will do next week.

I really enjoy the session of tai chi with the girls cause we got to have fun and learn some moves and also learn about why Chinese people bow because it is another way of saying hello and shaking hands.
