Taonga Poems

LI: To write a poem to describe ancestors by using the literary devices of alliteration, onomatopoeia, metaphor, simile and rhyme. 


LS2 have been thinking about how literary devices and figurative language can paint a clear picture with words. To strengthen our connections to the learning we tapped into our culture and family connections.

Postive Attitiude: Liletina and Afatia

Our Year 7 and 8 students grow their leadership by working towards our Panmure Bridge School CARE badges. To get a badge, (there is one for each of our school values), they need to complete five tasks that show they have a strong connection to that value. The video below is a DLO that Liletina and Afatia made to show what having a positive attitude looks like. This is one of their tasks towards their Attitude badge.

You're not you when you're hungry... LS2 2019 Manaiakalani Film Festival

The Panmure Bridge School Ad Campaign for the 2019 Manaiakalani Film Festival was an idea to promote the kind of learning we do here in Panmure Bridge and also within the Manaiakalani Cluster of schools. We took interesting ads and remade them under a Manaiakalani/Learn, Create, Share/Digital learning  theme.

In 2019, LS2's contribution is "You're not you when you're hungry". Can you figure out the ad it's based on?

Interactive Maths Game - By Victoria

This is my interactive maths game, to practise a mix of multiplication and decimal problems in written form. There are only 5 questions, with either a correct or incorrect answer and a reaction page that i’d like you all to use to give me feedback on my quiz. Note that you can always use a hint, and remember to think about the question carefully. Peers testing my game, and playing others games have helped me bring mine to the next level by looking at my layout, font, colouring, and sizing. Feedback from my teacher was to look at unnecessary capitals in some of the equations. It’ll be obvious if you get it the answer wrong or right, so you can try again or continue to the next question. I really enjoyed creating my own character and making it move, using a GIF maker site. Enjoy!

Food Tech - By Te Pounamu

For tech today we completed our last session for Term 2. with our teacher Mrs Heka, who takes care of food tech show us how to cook traditional food queasiness. Today we cooked Chop Suey from the Samoan culture. This rotations theme is all about cultural food. Since there wasn't an equal amount of students in food class, My group : Joseph and i. Each person had their own roles to complete. Joseph and I worked together to make sure that the food was done properly, and that the main ingredients were prepared to be added in, while i was dicing the onion, chicken, and garlic. The equipment that we used from our trolley was: medium bowl, measuring cups/spoons, knives, Yellow and green cutting board, big pot, strainer, fork, and serving spoon. The ingredients were: mixed veges, chicken, soy sauce, boiling water, oil, vermicelli, and salt. We were told to remove the pot from the heat every 2 minutes, because of the stickiness from the chicken and vermicelli. At the end of the session, as always we cleansed down our top/bottom benches, especially the stoves/cum tray. While we were cooking our chop suey, Mrs Heka was getting the rice prepared and then we dished it which looked so deliciously delicious.

Papatuanuku & Ranginui Summary - By Sakina

This week in reading, we learnt about the Maori myths and legends. First we watched a video of a Maori story in sand art. To understand more about the story, we created a summary of the story, in partners. My partner was Miiana. This story was about how Papatuanuku and Ranginui were separated by their children, and the journey throughout New Zealand.

Maths Game - Mixed Decimals - By Nyjah

During week 9 and 10 I have created a mixed decimals game. I have 5 questions in total and one out of four answers are correct. If you get a question incorrect you can always try again or click on the "help link." If you get the answer correct you move onto the next level. Each level is mixed so not every question is hard or easy. Although, each question does involve decimals and addition. When designing my presentation (game) I decided to have a flower / nature like theme. I made the flowers on the correct slide green and red for the incorrect slide. Each question involves thinking and strategies like place value. Think, Choose wisely and good luck!

Phonics - By Nidhi

Today for phonics we learned the 'I' sound. First we started with making a list of all the words  we could think of that have the ' I' sound in them. Then we wrote a sentence using some of the words from our word list, we highlighted the words with the 'I' sound in them.

Motat Trip - By Nevaeh

Yesterday Room 5, LS1 and LS2 went to Motat. At Motat we all got to the gate and waited until the school that was leaving to get in the bus so we can go through the gate to some covers so we can be told what the instructions are. So we stared to walk into the lab where we can put our bags onto a rack where they can be safe. The Teacher told all of us their names Emma, Kenzie and Damon. Emma ask us all a question it was 'Do you know what steam is' someone said 'Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics' LS1 went to go and explore Motat when Ls2 and room 5 stayed and did something else room 5 went with Emma and  LS2 went with Kenzie when I was with Kenzie we tried to build a electric car using batteries sadly me and my partner car did not work. After we're finish work Kenzie we went to Emma and we tried to make a light Bolt turn on by making the light go with some lego. After we were finished we started to have lunch after lunch we went to explore Motat it was fun exploring Motat because we learn what they used before we had Chromebook and mobile phones.
