kapa haka distinction #2

When I was at kapa haka we were learning a song that we did a few years ago and the actions for it its called te nae mateo and we are through all the actions now we have to improve how well we know them. After that we just went through the songs we know.

I showed leadership by being open to learning new songs and actions.
I continued to be a role model by helping others to learn the actions.

I can take action to improve the water cycle in Canterbury


In this project I was working with Natasha and we decided to create a water filter

Here is a link what we made.

In this project we decided that our success criteria were: A good water filter needs... Why is this important? The right materials for the job So we can make a good water filter. Needs  to produce drinkable water Because if the water wasn’t drinkable you would get sick if you drank it. Needs to be strong So it doesn't break and it can carry all the water and rocks inside it. Needs to last for as long as possible Because the water filter would be useless if it only worked for one lot of water. Needs to work in all areas Other wise you would have to leave it in the same area and you might need it somewhere else
Overall our project met meet this criteria because... it was strong,long lasting,works in all areas,produces drinkable water and we had the right materials.

Music

I can describe the characteristics of music from songs of a different time and place
Over the past 7 weeks I have been learning to describe the characteristics of music from songs of a different time and place
I can describe these characteristics in a piece of music Melody = A lot of single notes that is musically satisfying. Harmony = A combination of musical notes to make a pleasing effect. Rhythm = A repeated pattern of movement. Timbre = The character or quality of a musical sound. Form = The form is the structure a song or a piece of music

Here is an example of my learning

The activity I played was volleyball
My two highlights of the Koru Games were...

That the net was lower than what we practiced with because I couldn't get it over.That there was Pita Pit because it is delicious. I am proud of coming 7th out of about 24 teams.

Next year I want to stay playing volleyball because it is fun.

WALT apply the techniques of improvisation to a range of different scenarios.

Improvisation TECHNIQUES that I have used successfully are, thinking on the spot and making it funny
Improvisation TECHNIQUES that I would like to have more practice at are being quick at thinking what to do quick.
The thing that I enjoyed most about this unit of learning was learning all the improve games because i enjoyed them.
The thing that I found most challenging during this unit of learning was preforming in front of people that are not my friends because i front like doing things in front of others
My favorite improvisation game was sell this thing because it was really funny.

My next step/ something I need to work on further  in improvisation is thinking quick because it took me ages to think of it.

I can apply my knowledge of adverbial clauses and connectives to see how ideas are linked in texts.
For reading I have been learning about adverbial clauses. I have found this learning challenging because it was quite hard to identify the types of sentences.
In this activity , I had to find the adverbial clauses in the sentences.

THE WATER CYCLE



INTRODUCTION
The water cycle is a process where water goes through key stages.E.g evaporation, condensation, precipitation, runoff and Groundwater. There is no start or end to this process, this water has been recycled from around 4 billion years ago.

EVAPORATION Evaporation is where the sun heats up the water and turns it into vapour. This process is an invisible process you cannot see this happening, usually. Do you know that plants and trees can also lose water into the atmosphere, through their leaves this process is known as Transpiration. Two of the next steps are Condensation and Precipitation.
