Tamaki College OverDrive

Cover of Pray for a Fire Drill
This Week I was on Tamaki College OverDrive Year 7 and Year 8's are lucky to get a chance to read online using the Tamaki College OverDrive. A book that was interesting that I read on Tamaki College OverDrive was called Big Nate and Friends,Pray for a Fire Drill. This book is about a boy named Nate and he is having problem with his dad eating to much, His fiends not knowing how to play a game, His crush goign to someone else and wanting another teacher. I like this book because it is funny and it has cool pictures.

Group A's HIIT Workout

This week we are planing to make our own exercise using fortnite moves. The fortnite moves we are using are Wiggle,Best Mates,Take the L,Living Large and the Hype. Wiggle is when you wiggle your head and your body.Start of by moving your leg side to side then move your body side to side.Best Mates is when you jump and move your hands but not your elbows. Start off by jumping and then move your arm up side to side near your armpits and.Taking the L is when you kick both of your leg,jump at the same time and have you hand on you. Start off by kicking both leg and then jump and then have you finger something L on your head. The Hype is when you go up and down and move you arms and leg up and down.Start off by moving your arms up and down and then do the same with legs.In this you need you need to move you legs but move your shoulders and arms side to side. I really like these move because the really make our heart pump more.

Scale Drawings

This week we were learning how to to do scale drawings. I have picked Snoopy from the Peanuts movie. I have Picked this because it is a nice simple design. We first needed to find an image and then add a gird we needed to make sure that the squares were 1cm. Next, we grabbed an A3 paper to add a grid but we needed to make sure that the squares on the A3 paper were two Centimeters doing this means you are doing enlargement. Thirdly we needed to draw our design a tip Mrs. Kirkpatrick gave us was to focus on one box at a time. Next, we needed to add color for mine I only needed black and white. Lastly, we needed to make a label and then stick it on cardboard paper. I really like how my on turn out because my lines were straight.


The Tunnel

The wind blows like a roaring tiger.
Then the trees sway  like an elephant's trunk.
I see green things like grass,broken trees and leaves.
The branches were stiff as a rock and the tunnel was black like the stormy cloud.
I was thinking where will this lead me?.
As I walked through the tunnel I heard crackling noises from the leaves.
It was like crunching cereal. The rocks were old and covered in black and green grass.
It was a dark and gloomy night when thunder struck through the tunnel.
The thunder was booming like a earthquake and the clouds were black as a hole.
I said to myself “Will I survive or Will I die.”

This week I did a 5-7-10 writing. We had 5 minutes of writing,7 minutes of talking about the writing and 10 minutes for drafting our writing. We needed to writing and describe the image that Mrs. Kiripatrcik gave us. The story is about the Tunnel and the different things that happen around it and things that move around it.

Kiwi Can

This week for Kiwi Can we were learning about Problem Solving. We were talking about some problems in Public and in School. A problem in Public is Road Violence and a school problem can be bullying. The energizer we played was called Tangel we needed to join hand across us and side us then we need to try to untangle each other but still hold hands my group won this game and was really excited. The next Energizer we played was called Rock, Paper,Siccors leveal we need to beat the other person if we lose then we are on our knees then we need to battle another people on their knees if we lose and we are on our knees then we need to sit dnow and we are otu if we win and we are on our knees then we stand up. The next game we played was called Rope we needed to figure out how to get over the rope without jumping or going under what my group did was we all stand on magentas back and then hoped over the rope. The last thign we did was a GKQ Miss Morris was the winner for our GKQ today. The point of these games was too collaborate,encourage and have communication.

This week I got a Certificate for being confident in learning. Mrs Anderson told me I got this because she really liked how I was responsible and confident for doing a blog post about the New Medi Cube opening. I got my certificate with Avalon. I think I deserve this because I have been working hard to share my learning on my blog 5 times a week. A way to be confident is to be happy in what you do and what you say.

Whare Hauora Opening

On Thursday, August 9th we went to the hall to listen to people who have sponsored and help create the new Whare Hauora Medi Cube. We were Lucky enough to meet Sir Peter Thompson head of the Barfoot and Thompson company with Kiri Barfoot. We first had a prayer (karakia) lead by the Kaumatua who has blessed our some of our school's building before. Secondly got to see the Kapa Haka group. The girls displayed a dance with a poi and the boys did a dance with sticks. Next, we got Mr. Johnston to speak and introduce Sir Peter Thompson to the stage to talk about the New Whare Hauora Medi Cube. After Sir Peter Thompson had talked to us about the medi cube and thanked people who helped him we got a very special person who owned a company who sponsored Panmure Bridge School to create the New Whare Hauora Medi cube and is the from Starship. We were lucky to get a lot of people from Starship and the ADHB to come and see the new Whare Hauora Medi cube. Later on, we went near the medi cube to see Sarah Williams cut the ribbon, we all clapped it got cut and were excited that the Whare Hauora Medi Cube was now open. This Medi Cube was for medication purposes so that all students that are sick can visit the Medi Cube and get checked by our expert Nures. I really like the idea of this, and the art that is on the Medi Cube. A big thank you to Starship Children's Health, Starship Foundation, Auckland District Health Board, Cube and Barfoot and Thompson for sponsoring this Medi Cube.

Wheel Words

This week for a reading activity Rotorua and Motuihe were on a site called wheel words. In this Learning Game, we needed to find words that use the letter in the center wheel. I used 3 hints to help me and I found 20 words. I also found 4 obscure words. When I do this again I think I could work on getting 6 letter words. We needed to do this in ten minutes. 

Formal and Informal


Letter-Dear Mrs Kirkpatrick,
Good Morning Mrs. Kirkpatrick how was your holiday? Mine was great and special because I went to meet my cousin that I haven’t met since I was 5. My Cousin's name is Lisa and she was traveling from Hong Chong China towards Auckland to go on a trip to Wellington. We picked her up at the Auckland Airport and then we settled down at home.

This was exciting to spend time with her. She first showed me some things from Hong Kong that she came with,it was a Sandalwood Fan, A 2018 dog tote bag to put her Computer and iPad and Fortune cookies. I got to try one and it was great. I really like how you can hunt for your Fortune. When I told Lisa about the bubble tea she said that it was most popular in China and that they sell Bubble Tea Kits.

The Secondly thing we did was an ultimate musically. is an app for video creation and lets your go live to broadcast. The first prototype was released in April 2014, and the official version was launched in August of that year. Next, we had dinner for dinner we had rice and dumplings this was Lisa favorite because it was apart of her culture. The next day we had to get her packed up so she can leave for Wellington I took a picture before she transmitted I was down that she had to go but my dad said that she would come back. What was your favorite part of spending time with your special people?

Sincerely,Angela Afamasaga


This week I was Creating three writing pieces about Informal and Formal. Formal was a letter to Mrs. Kirpatrick, Informal was for my friend's on Gmail and both Formal and Informal were for grandparents. Formal I thought about using the right punctuation and Vocab. For Informal I thought about the Detail and for grandparents, it was the words.

Animal Poem

White and Black
Black and White                                                     
Trying to find my twin tonight!
Is that my twin on the road
It looks like people are on his toes.
People do not  like my Stripy Stripes
Just because I am Black and white
This doesn't mean I am not full of might
Oh, I need my twin tonight.

This week for writing we were writing a poem about an being an animal.
I picked a zebra. I expressed about his lost twin and added a complaint about his life.
Somethings Mrs. Kiripatrick thought we should have was Rhyming couplet,
Cadence, and Anthropomorphism. My poem frequently shows Rhyming couplets.

This week my reading group was working on making a chain by linking ideas from a story. First, we started with a response. Then we tried to get as many comments that link to the response. We used the Chain sheet to record our comments. In order to link the comment we needed to use something form the other comments or something from the questions.

Key Into Evaluation

Key into Evaluation
Level Two Set T2

Evaluation requires the skills or reorganization and inference.  
Answers must come from the
information in the story. Look for keywords. Consider the writer’s intent.


My only brother was also my twin.  
You would think that because we were identical we would act
the same way and like the same things.  
He was born forty minutes before me and would often
remind me of the fact. Because I was keen on sport,
he would also rub me up the wrong way by raving on about
how the sport was boring and a big waste of time.

“Who, little brother,” he would jeer, “needs to suffer pain unnecessarily?”

When we turned fifteen my parents surprised
me with a year’s subscription to the In-Shape Gym.  
Now I was able to join Brant and Ethan each Monday and
Wednesday evening to seriously work out. When they turned
up at home to pick me up Josh would be sprawled out on the couch
mindlessly watching cartoons or playing his new PlayStation.  
He would poke fun at us and say that the best way to deal with an
urge to exercise was ’to stay calm and wait until it went away.’

“Just playing sport is bad enough,” he scoffed,
“but working out is over the top.  And Tim,” he says,
leaning forward and screwing up his nose, “the only reason
you would want to go there would be to attract the girls!”

So it was a surprise when having decided to go to
the gym late one Thursday afternoon, we saw Josh come
out the side door dressed in a tracksuit carrying a sports bag
in his hand.  What’s more, he crossed the road and walked straight
up to a smiling Tammy Aster - the most gorgeous girl at our school.

a.  Why did his brother refer to him as ‘little brother’?
He called him little brother because he was born 40 minutes later
b.  Do you think the writer was happy with his birthday present?  
Why do you say that? Yes Because he wanted to work out serious with his friends

c.  What present do you think Tim’s brother got for his fifteenth birthday?
For his birthday he got a new PlayStation

d.  Why do you think Josh was at the gym?

Reaction question:

Would you like to be Josh’s brother?  Why do you say that?
yes because he is nice and kind and he actually listens
Create activity:

Find out about a gym in the local area.  How much is it to
join and how old do you have to be?

Create an advertisement for this gym.

This week for Key into Evaluation we were reading a book called Gym.It about two
brothers one was born and then the other was born 40 minuets later.One is nice and
one is naught.Next I needed to answer the question about the book I needed to also add
add something to my answer that was from the text.Next I needed to Create an
advertisement for a gym.

Army Soilders

This week I was Creating a DLO about What Career I would like to do when I get older. I chose the Army Soldier. Then we needed to create a DLO about our career that we have chosen. This DLO Includes Image that has an attribution, description of Career, earning potential, training needed, subject need to choose at college for the career and an explanation why this career is my interest. I was Suprised that to be apart of the Army you don't need a degree or qualification. I think this will be a good job because of the money that you get paid and the job helps the world be a safer place.


This week for Careers we were on a site called CareerQuest. We needed to answer some questions to see what Careers might be suggested.The options were to say Very Interested,Fairly Interested,Netrul and Not Interested.The Job that they Suggested was Police Officer,Air Force Airwomen/Airman and more.I really liked how they got the Police Officer because its a career I wanted to choose and become.

This week we had Kiwi Can.We are learning about Goal Setting and why it is important. The fist thing we did was an activity. The activity was called Horse and Jockeys. First we needed to find a partner and then get in a circle so one person go in front and the other in the back if she said banana then they swap place. If Miss Lily says horse then we start to walk around the circle but if she says Jokey then we needed to run back to our partner.
