Today Rohullah and I played 'Roll-A-Story'. He had to roll the dice to choose the character, setting and plot. Rohullah chose Mrs Eeles, hidden music instruments and the driveway. This is the story we wrote together. It took a long time as we talked about each sentence. Great work Rohullah!

This is a collaborative poster that I have created with Jacob. We have included what 'hydration and dehydration' is, how water helps us and a 25 word summary explaining why it is vital to human survival. We have also used an image to give our audience a clearer understanding of our topic.
This morning we went to our kiwi sport called Run Jump Throw. It was our first time doing it. We learnt that to run fast and properly. You will need to follow these rules: Look straight, cheek to cheek with your arms, light feet and high knees, to start a sprint you should not look at the starter and the difference between long distance and short distance is that long distance doesn't have get set go in their wording. While we were practising running and doing the hurdles Mrs Anderson videoed us so then we can compare how we run to other people.
Today room 5 did run jump and throw. Andy our instructor taught us how to run like a pro. She said we would need to follow these rules: Look straight, High knees, Stand tall, Cheek to Cheek with your arms and light feet. Also she taught us the difference between long distance words and short distances words. She said that on long distance they don't say get set. Mrs Anderson our teacher recorded us doing drills so then we can compare it to other people.
Today, we had our first session with Andy today. Run Jump Throw is mainly based on running. Andy taught us about the basic rules of sprinting, which are:
- Standing Tall
- Looking Straight Ahead
- Light Feet
- High Knees
- Cheek to cheek with arm movements
We also had a relay and a race jumping over hurdles between each other. Andy mentioned to us to never loo at the starter as this slows us down. Mrs. Anderson also filmed us to compare us. I am looking forward to our next session next week!

Yvette and I after our presentations
An exciting day for Room 5 today! Both Yvette and myself presented at the Manaiakalani Hui. I shared my MIT journey so far, and Yvette did an amazing job at sharing a learning experience in our class. I was really impressed with the confident way she explained the learning process and why she enjoyed this task. Great job Yvette! #proud teacher

Paying it forward is our homework we need to pay it forward each night this week. We had to pay it forward to a family member. I payed it forward last night by making my mum a cup of tea. It made my mum feel really special because I did it without her asking me too. I felt really proud of myself because she could rely on me to make her feel relaxed.
As you can see this is about my homework. It is about me paying it forward to my mum. She really appreciated the effort I put in. I felt good because she has been relaxing.
Last night I had to pay it forward. To pay it forward I helped my mum by opening the door and also helped with the shopping. She felt proud because sometimes I never help with the shopping. When I finished helping with the shopping I felt proud of myself because I had done something to help my mum.

“Hey do you think NZ schools should provide breakfast for their students?” asked June.
"Yeah I do because it will help kids with their learning," replied Dontalian.
"Yeah that was what I was thinking. Also it could keep them motivated and help them have a healthy mind," stated June.
"I know because a lot of children have been not focusing on their learning"responded Dontalian.
"Yeah but what if schools have no money to provide the breakfast?Don't you think that will cause a problem?"questioned June.
"True," replied Dontalian.
Today I learnt to put speech marks in my writing to show that someone is speaking. I used the conversation I had with June on ifake text to get my sentences.
“Hi Oh S’Mar I think we should have breakfast at school,” stated San Tat
“Why?” questioned Oh S’Mar.
“Because students without having breakfast struggle in their learning!” shouted San Tat.
“Wow don’t people care about students struggle at school, “said Oh S’Mar
“I know right I can't believe that people don't even care,” San Tat yelled.
Me and my partner used a website called Ifaketext.com we used this app the make a conversation about should children have breakfast at school. We were learning to use direct speech and have tried to experiment with different 'said' words.
