Research: Diana

 LI: To make a DLO to show information about Pandas.

Today I made a DLO to show about the Giant pandas. First we opened a google draw and then we made it interesting by adding the information about the giant pandas. After I added a picture of the panda. I enjoyed it because this activity taught and showed me more facts and information about the giant pandas. 

Cybersmart: David

LI: To make a DLO about being cybersmart.

Cybersmart is a term of using learn, create, and share on your computer by using smart and clever ways.

For those who are new to keyboards, they have shortcuts, some are:

Ctrl + Z to undo

Ctrl + Y to Redo

Ctrl + C to Copy

Ctrl + V to Paste

And loads more.

Being cybersmart is important because if you don’t make wise choices online people your actions might have big consequences.

This activity was enjoyable because all of my ideas come from my prior knowledge about being cybersmart but some ideas are from websites and wrie in my own words.

Virtual Adventure: Chris

Our activity was to create a map of all the places and destinations we would like to go to but the places had to be the capital of that country. I myself only included 5 different countries or capitals, and the majority of them were Asian countries. The countries I included were South Korea, Japan, Thailand, The UK, and Singapore. 

This activity was fun doing because I got to explore these countries, and my favorite country out of those 5 were Thailand. 

Giant Panda Research: Fau, Leon and Chris

 L.I:  To use our smart searching skills to find information about the giant panda 


 Our activity for today was researching about Giant pandas.  We created paragraphs to inform interesting facts and things about giant pandas. In our task we had to write down information about pandas on a note sheet. After writing down our information we wrote down paragraphs. The paragraphs was basically used to sum up our information that we wrote down on our note sheet. After writing everything down we created a DLO which had all the information about Giant pandas.  We found this activity interesting and also gave us the opportunity to find out more about Giant Pandas and how they survive in the wild.  One interesting fact I learnt about Giant pandas is that they consume around 44lb (20kgs) of bamboo. 

Cybersmart: Chris

  LI: to give a helpful tip to people about Cybersmart

Our Cybersmart activity was to give a tip about Cybersmart. It could be anything like cleaning your drive or even something like organizing your bookmarks. My tip was about how to hold a chromebook in the proper manner or the proper way. I feel like this is a good tip, because Panmure Bridge is a digital school and start using chromebooks at Yr 4. In my DLO it shows a photo of me on how to hold a chromebook, and instructions on how you should hold it. Then lastly why you should hold it like that. 

Giant Panda Research | Writing: Juel, Sulia and Farzana

LI: to use our smart searching skills to find information about the giant panda.

Our focus for this challenge was based on writing TEEL paragraphs about giant pandas. After using our smart searching skills, we used the TEEL structure in order to write paragraphs. TEEL is the acronym for: topic sentence, elaborate, evidence and link sentence. 

First we researched about giant pandas and found information about them. After this, we made bullet point notes including the main points of our research. These notes helped create sentences with all the main ideas and made it understandable. 

After making the notes we started writing our TEEL paragraphs. TEEL paragraphs help us to expand our knowledge/ideas and formulate our thinking into informational pieces of text. 

We found this activity very enjoyable because we collaborated together to find out shocking information about pandas. One thing I learnt from this activity was that giant pandas are very close to extinction.

Tatau: Spelman

 L.I: To create a DLO that tells others about tatau.

Today I made a DLO about my cultures tattooing. I used my smart searching skills, I needed to out find what tattoo is in Tongan and samoan, also the meaning. There is a picture showing of what a Tongan tattoo is. Tattoo in Tongan is tatatau and tattoo in samoan is tatau. The tattooing represented the individuals love, loyalty, to their family or 'aiga, and the new responsibilities they had to bear. The Tongan tatau represented Tongan society and the journey of the Tongans past, present and future.

I found quite hard was to find the meaning because there was website that didn't have the meaning of the  tradtional tatau. A fact I found interesting was in Tonga, tattooing was a vibrant part of the culture until the early 1800s. I enjoyed this activty because I learnt new things about tattooing in my culture.

Cultural Art: Spelman

L.I: To create a piece of cultural art.

Inspired by art creations by Raku Inoue we went outside and collected leaves, twigs, and other plant debris to create our own cultural pattern or symbol. I thought of making a butterfly for my creation. I collected two big leaves and two small sized leaves. I also collected 6 regular sized yellow dandilions, one big yellow dandilion, one meduim sized stick, two small sized sticks.

I found it quite hard was getting a medium sized stick because there mutiple of large sticks and small sized twigs. I enjoyed this activity because I get to show my creation and show people that they can make a creation of there own. An interesting fact I found out about Raku Inoue is that you can be really creative of what the things you are making.

Tattooing has played an important part in many cultures over time. Our challenge was to use our smart searching skills to find out about traditional tattooing in our own culture. I really enjoyed doing this task as I get to learn a lot more about my Culture. I also really liked working with my partner as we shared our ideas and worked collaborative. The most interesting fact I learnt was some people do tatting to represent their culture. My partner and I used our searching skills to find facts and information about tattooing and what it means to our culture.

Cultural Art - Pepe - Butterfly: Taua

 This week I used things outside to make an insect.

At first this challenge was pretty hard because I didn't know what insect I should of made. But the most easy insect to make was a butterfly. First I grabbed one big rock and one small rock. Then I got four big leaves and two small plant stems. I thought this activity was pretty easy because I knew the parts of a butterfly. 

The Tongan word for butterfly is pepe.

There is a lady in Tonga that is called the butterfly lady.

Today this art was inspired by Raku Inoue. For this task we had to go outside and collect leaves, petals and twigs and create our own culture pattern. For my art I created a dragonfly I collected 4 leaves one sharp stick, 2 twigs and 4 flowers.

This task for me was really hard because I had to go outside and try to find sticks and leaves. But at the same time I enjoyed making my own design using sticks and leaves.

Tattooing has played an important part in many cultures over time. Our challenge was to use our smart searching skills to find out about traditional tattooing in our own culture.

I found it quite hard to research because Myanmar is a weathly place but it does have the information that I need but sometimes not

I enjoyed it because I get to talk about how my home country make and do the tattos and the history of it.

An interesting fact I found out about the tatau is that womans have tattoos that most.

Kapa Haka: kruse

LI: To learn the teachings of our tupuna (ancestors) and the history of New Zealand's native people and their land.

Ls2 boys went to the Auckland museum to learn about Maori weapons, carvings in the wharenui, 7 taiaha moves and how to do the haka with a Taiaha. First we all went to the halll to talk about the chellenges and a video about going over the rules when we arrive to the museum.

On our way to the museum we practised the lyrics to the haka.

When we arrived to the museum we had to answer 6 questions about the museum. once we answered the 6 questions matua Ngarimu & matua Kingy added more questions to the chellenge. The 10 questions were: the name of the mountain that the Auckland museum was on, the name of the museum in maori 2 short weapons and 2 long weapons and the name of the patterns in the museum.

We then learnt 7 Taiaha moves and learnt the Maori haka using a Taiaha.

I enjoyed this trip and would like to learn a more about maori weapons, carvings and other treasures.
