Immersion Assembly

Welcome everybody to a new start. It’s time for term 4!! Our theme for this term is musical madness. It might of been easy to guess we are going to be learning about music!! Anyways i’m not here to talk about what the theme for this term i’m here to talk about our immersion assembly.

Walking to the hall I was so excited to be back at school. We walked in and saw teachers all dressed up with some musical instruments. Mr Burt was dressed up as Bob Marley. Anyways it was time for team 1. Team 1 played with cards, they played snap. While they were playing they put on some music. When the music was played they changed their emotions so they changed the songs again and their emotions changed again. Finally it was over, once it was over Mrs Hockley said this term we are going to be seeing how music changes our emotions. I thought that was a great idea.

Next was team 2!! Team two’s item was about making music with musical instruments. They sang a song and also played musical instruments they sang in the jungle the mighty jungle. Ms Gaston played the ukulele. Miss Peck played the tambourine. Ms Tumahai played the xylophone, and Mrs Nalder played the bongo drums. It was a great way to start off the term.

You know what i’m going to say it’s time for team 3!! Team 3 did a song story. A song story is when you say something but carries on with a song. Team three’s  item was funny and really cool. My favorite song that they used was me myself and I. My favourite part in the movies was when Miss Davis pretended she was hanging from the roof. Don’t worry it was a green screen.

Now it was time for, team 4!! Team four did carpool karaoke. It was quit funny. Anyways as they were driving music came on and the teachers started singing. As the music changed it got funnier and funnier. My favourite song was one of the rock songs Because all the teachers were really funny and crazy. Then it was over and finally I could stop laughing.

It’s time for team 5. Team 5 was the funniest item that i’ve seen. Team 5 teacher did an  act. Team 5 watched a movie the movie was lion king. Team 5 didn’t watch the whole movie they just watched the part where Simba was put up in the air while the kingdom sang a song. As the movie played on that part of the movie kept repeating and repeating. While the song kept changing and changing. The songs were sometimes funny, sad and quit even funnier. The funniest song was let it go because when Simba got put up into the air the song kept saying let it go! Some people laughed but some people were a little sad.

Anyway that was the end of the immersion assemble. I hope you enjoyed reading about the immersion assembly.

The Flight Of The Bumblebee

This morning room 10 listened to a song. The song is called the flight of the bumblebee. When room 10 listened to the flight of the bumblebee we had to draw a picture of what you think is happening during the song. Miss West gave us some ideas, those ideas were maybe when the music is getting louder the darker you use the pencil and when the music gets softer the lighter you use the pencil. Miss West also said maybe a bee is chasing someone? I decided to go with my own idea. As you can see in my photo someone is falling, as the music gets louder she gets closer to the ground. I thought someone was going to hit the ground because the music is quite scary and loud.

3rd Semminar

On Tuesday the year 5 & 6 extension had there 3rd paideia seminar. The topic was, is being civilised such a good thing? I think it is okay to be civilised because civilised means to be good mannered. I think I did a better job in this seminar that the old seminar because I agreed and piggy backed off other ideas. I think I could talk more and have more confidence in myself.

Earth's Natural Resources

Imagine that all earth's resources disappeared. How would we survive? Imagine all human and animals are thirsty!  Would we be alive.

Why are natural resource important? Well our natural resources are what we need. If you don’t get what I mean, I mean water, tree’s things that keep us alive. We need plants we need water we need tree’s. Why do we need all these thing? If we didn’t have natural resources we would be very sick.

The most important resource for me is tree’s. Why? You ask, well tree’s produce oxygen and oxygen help us to breath. As I said before if we didn’t have this natural resource we would very sick. Moving on to the next natural resource.

The next natural resource that is important is water. Water comes from many different rivers or oceans but we are going to be talking about drinking water. If we didn’t have water we would be thirsty and dehydrated. Dehydrated means we don’t have enough water in our body. Your lips would start to dry up and we do not want that to happen. That's why drinking water is important. Did you know that you could survive without any food but with water for 3 weeks? Amazing right. On to the last natural resource.

The last important natural resource I will be sharing with is soil. Do we need soil? Your answer is yes. We need soil because soil helps us grow fruit and vegetables, food! That's right food. Vegetables and fruit are healthy for you too. One more thing is that soil helps up grow tree’s also. And tree’s help us to breath.

So there you have it all the important natural resource that are my favorite. Tree’s, water and soil, all my favorite. But again what would we do if we didn’t have natural resource? Think about it.
