Hazel's Visit - Summer Learning Journey

On Friday Hazel visited Panmure Bridge School to tell us about the Summer Learning Journey program that is held during the Christmas holidays. The program contains lots of activities. It starts on the 18th of December and ends on the 26th of January. The top three bloggers from each school will be given a prize. It is great that the year eights are still allowed to participate even though they are going to college next year. The Summer Learning Journey is great for students because when they come back to school they will improve their learning.

This week for maths we have been working on geometry activities. I have taken a screenshot of one of the activities I have completed. For this activity there were two sheets. One with the instructions and the other one to draw. We had to follow the dots link each one up until it says stop on the instruction sheet. After we finished drawing we coloured it in.

Tamaki Collage

This week on Friday we spent the morning at Tamaki collage. After our tech sessions we were split into three groups: robotics, social studies and PE. I was in robotics. First we needed to know the two main things for programming which is an event and an action. We were split into four groups of three. Two groups would work on programming the M bot and the other two groups would work on programming the M drone. Te Wai, Tiava and I worked on programming the M bot. We first made the M bot do simple things like run forward and turn left or right. Then our challenge was to program our M bot to get through a course. It would have to go around chairs and cross the finish line. We did a lot of hard work but it didn't go as planned so in the end we used the computer keys to finish the course. I really enjoyed our session of robotics with Mr Dunn and Max.

Tech Tamaki College

On Friday it was our last day at tech and we completed making our stained glass with Mr Grundy. We have had an amazing year going to Tamaki College and had a great time with the teachers that taught us how to do things. The best Technology session was with Mrs Heka because she showed us how to cook very delicious food.

Problem solving DLO


Yesterday my partner Calvin and I started creating a DLO about a problem solving Mrs Anderson gave us to do. We could use any strategy we could like to solve the maths problem. Our problem involved times tables,doubles and everything we could use to solve it. The most challenging part about this was trying to pick what strategy to use because there were heaps. I loved doing this activity and hopefully my partner did as well.

Police Community

Today we have had an amazing afternoon because the police officers came to our school, this was probably the best police visitors we have ever had in the school because the police helicopter came and landed right onto our school field. It was a big surprise for me because it was my first time seeing a helicopter with my own eyes because I only get to see them on films or video tapes. Did you know that the helicopter goes 232 kph (WOW!). Did you also know that there are only 2 helicopters here in Auckland ?. My second favorite part about the visit was seeing the German Shepherd police dog come over to see us. It was fully trained and understood what to do when the other officer Grant was giving him commands. This was one of the best visits I have had so far for my last year here at Panmure Bridge school. Another fact about the helicopter is that it costed 850K for it !!?( that is a lot of money).

Scale Drawing

For the past few weeks Learning Space 2 have been doing Scale Drawing art. We first had to choose an image that we were going to draw. I chose to do Batman. Next we had to make a grid on top of the picture. I found drawing the grids the hardest because I am not really good at drawing straight lines. After that we made an enlargement of our Scale Drawing. 

Princess Bride Film Study

In the past few weeks LS2 were doing a media study on a movie called The Princes Bride. We learnt the type of shots of the character introductions. During the movie there was protagonist (goodie) and the antagonist (baddie).We also learnt what the characters role is in the movie and the type of clothing they are wearing. Buttercup was wearing a white dress which means she is a protagonist. The DLO above shows you what I learnt about the characters in the movie.

Table Chart-Harlem and Mathias

This is a table chart showing PBS responses to dropping rubbish. It is shocking for me and Mathias to see many people dropping rubbish including us. 69.2% out of 100% of pupils in PBS have dropped rubbish accidentally or on purpose. 30% out of 100% of pupils in PBS have taken responsibility for their actions and they sensibly put their rubbish in the bin knowing that dropping rubbish can have a negative effect on tomorrow. Our teachers Mrs Anderson and Mrs kirkpatrick have made a spreadsheet that shows our schools responses to dropping rubbish and the school is deciding what we can do to decrease the amount of rubbish dropped.


Today for dance we had to do our Evaluation movie i worked with Shannon,Cj and me Mrs Anderson filled as and i think my group did very well on this.

Thursday, 8 June 2017


Today for dance we were working on our dances that we created. I was working with Cj. The first thing we did was warm up. This week we used Oh hsen and Shnnon's warm up. Next we were reminded that the music we used had to fit with the dance we chose. We also needed to be in sync with the music. We then talked about the speed of our dance and that the music needs to be the same pase of the dance. After that talked about the mood of our dance. This helps tell your dance story.
