Grace Joel Performances

 Today students from Glenbrae School went to a elderly's rest home for old people. The students were performers. We had 4 different items from 4 different Pacific Islands. It was Samoan, Tongan, Maori and Cook Islands.

We were ready with our brilliant teachers who I will thank for helping us prepare our item and helping us with our costumes. We were really nervous and excited at the same time. When we went into the hall there were a lot of old women and men who were really hype to see our amazing performances.

First was the Maori group, the haka was done by the room 7 boys who were really fierce and loud in their haka which is pretty sick right? Well after the haka was the Maori singing group. We sang "te aroha" and "Purea nei." I was happy that I got to lead the songs. I was also happy of my friend Angelica who was also leading the songs and she did pretty well. Next was the Tongan group. The tongan group was really confident and happy on how they were doing their performances.

One of the Tongan performers were being really shy and so we had to  tell that performer to keep up and to be confident. They also had the Tongan boys to dance with another song and they were really good, doing the actions right and they even were smiling real big.

After that it was my favourite culture group which is the Samoan group. The Samoan group was doing something really different. We were doing "slap dancing" which is called a "sasa." We had our dance coach, Miss Tofa to drum for us. We were ready to dance and we were going really hard, the moves were sharp and even I was in the Samoan group to represent my culture.

Later on we had the Cook Island group. We had our friendly friend Maara to do a freestyle dance for us. She was really good in dancing. Her dance had a really deep message. It was really relaxing for everyone who is watching. This was really inspiring for the performers. Then we had Aaliyahna dance with her for a fast dance. They were shaking so hard that they started sweating. It was really fun of them performing in front of us.

Finally we had performers to talk about the dance and what it is all about. We even had people dancing with us which was really fun. It was really entertaining for the elderly's who were having fun. Later they gave us some chocolates for our performances. We had Cherise say thank you for them for helping do breakfast and for giving the love to us. It was really fun performing and we really enjoyed it.

Glenbrae kids

Monday 28 2017, the room 7 students and our teacher Miss Tofa went to the Early child hood centre to visit our amazing small children the glenbrae kids. We went there to see what have they been doing and what can help them with their learning, but for now we just went there to chill with them and get to know them better. We first sang a greeting song we have been learning. After that we went to pick out a little taina to play with and I went with my favourite nephew Prince Tarzan. He were really fun to play with. We went around the to other people and I got to know a lot of kids names. Well we went to the playground and our favourite part of the playground was the pirate boat because it reminds of my favourite movie "Titanic." Later on we had to pack up and clean up the mess we made. We got ready to go in a line and said goodbye to our taina. They were really fun to know and to play with.......

Here is a little image of Tarzan and I painting......

This was really enjoying, but I hope you visit them sometime and get to know them better and maybe hang out with them...

Many thanks

Tennis Reflection w/ Campbell

Today room 7 had Tennis with our amazing coach Campbell. Today was the last day of Tennis. Tennis is a task for us to learn skills and to understand the knowledge of skills and learning. Well for our last day we planned to do a tennis tournament. There were 3 champions in each 3 courts and there were a lot of good tennis players who knew what to do and knew where the ball was going. I did pretty well because it was really simple and Campbell told us simple instruction. The tournament didn't go well because there were a lot of cheating, no teamwork and responsibility for the balls and rackets. This was not going really well for our last day, but the good part is we had a lot of fun, we did really well and we had to verse our teachers who did pretty good.

Many Thanks

My Maths Reflection...

Today Miss Tofa has given us a maths problem to solve out. The maths problem we have done was a multiplication and division. We had to go in front of the class and we had to write down the strategies we have done...

Here are the strategies I have done and why I used this strategy:

a)How many people can be seated in the room?
16 x 9 = 144
8 x 2 = 16
144 + 16 = 160 + 14 = 174

b) 3 x 174 = 522, 4 x 174 = 696, 5 x 174 = 870
4 x 170 = 580, 4 x 4 = 16, 680+ 16 = 696

These are my strategies I have done during the week. You can maybe use these to solve out your problems and maybe to help you get more new strategies. This helped me to solve my problems in maths and it can help you understand the equation or the questions.

Many Thanks
