🤔 Tips for making a quality Blog Post 🤔

WALA:What makes a quality Blog Post

Today in class I have finished a poster that is all about what makes a quality Blog Post.I liked making this Poster because I enjoyed trying to figure which 2 colours that I wanted to use.I think that the information on this Poster is very good to know if you're a blogger because you will know the right things to do and the tips you need to know in order to catch your audiences attention.One thing that I found a little bit challenging with this activity was trying to think of photos that relate to my topic. I think that the next steps for someone that is learning this is to actually include it into their blog posts because then they can work up to become a Smart Learner level. Thank you for reading my blog post and please leave me a comment if I made a mistake.👍👍

🏋️Why is fitness important? 🏋️

🏋️WALT:Write about why we think fitness is important 🏋️

Today in class we had to write about why we think fitness is important to us.Fitness is something that the Year 7&8 's do after our morning tea every day.We go up to the Netball courts to wait for our teacher and then we all run around our bike track.Once we are done running we come back and sit into our three groups and wait for a teacher to take us group by group.We do different exercises in our groups for a minute and then we swap and go to another teacher to do a different exercise.One challenge that I faced was trying to think of ways fitness helps us.Here is my writing and please leave me a comment if I made a mistake.😀 

Why is fitness important?

I think that fitness is important because it helps us be healthy.I think that it’s good to be healthy because it helps us live a longer life and to be healthy we need to have the right exercise in order to have a strong body.For example doing exercises in fitness would help us be healthier because when we’re exercising consistently we would be burning off extra fat.Another example is that if we eat healthy and do the right exercises we would live a much longer life.

The second reason why I think that fitness is important because it will help us with playing sports.I think that it could help us with sport because we are constantly moving which would also help us with breathing well if we play sports which includes running.I could also help us with sports of we are doing swimming because it helps you with your body moving consistently which is basicly what you do in swimming.For example fitness will help you breathe and you won’t run out of breath very quickly.

The third reason is it would help your breathing. I think that Fitness is good because we always start with a jog or a run around the bike track as a warm up.It’s good we have a little warm up because we get ready for all the exercise we are going to feel when we split up into our groups.For example if you are asthmatic you always get puffed out or short of breathe easily but with the help of fitness you would still get tired but your breathing won’t be as heavy.

My fourth reason why I think that fitness is good is because it helps us set goals. I think that fitness does help us set goals because we get to learn about finding out what pace to start at with our body.For example usually when people start exercising and doing fitness sometimes they go to hard on the first day and then they don’t do the other days because they’re sore.But with fitness the teachers encourage us to move consistently but they understand if our pace is slow but they just want to see us moving at our own pace.

My fifth reason why I think that fitness is important is because it helps us recover from injuries.If we get injured the doctors and physio’s do say to take it easy but at the same time try exercise the body part.For example if you have a sore back you could do squats because they help you get straighter backs and it would help you find your balance. If you have a foot injury and you need to practice walking you could do shuttle runs because Miss Kelly does let you Walk,Jog,Run,Skip and Walk backwards.

My last reason why I think that fitness is important is because it can help us with releasing extra energy.I think that fitness does help release extra energy because we could still have a little bit energy from Morning tea.I also think that after morning tea some classes go back up really loud and they might talk a lot so I think that getting most of the energy out would help them go to class a little bit ready for learning. For example some classes do Meditation but instead we release the extra energy with exercises. Sometimes most of our energy goes out in the run and we do the exercise to help burn fat.

Tapa Cloth Design

WALT:Make a Tapa Cloth using photos of things that show our identity

Today in class I have created a google drawing with some photos on it that shows who I am and something that I enjoy.One challenge that I faced while I was trying to make this was trying to think of things that would probably show people what I like. I chose the Tongan and Fijian flags because they represent my culture and it's also something that shows my Identity.I also chose two beaches from those two islands to show that I like swimming at beaches.I picked a photo of people holding letters that spell Family because I like hanging out with my family.At the top in the middle I chose a photo of my temple to show that I like to go to church.I put a photo of a dog because I like to play with her when I don't have anything to do.I put a photo of New South Wales because I like that team.I put a photo of Youtube because I like to watch it when I'm bored and underneath it is a Photo of a Fijian man beating the Lali drum because I like to go to the Island and Beat it at Midnight.I also put a photo of a Kava bowl because Fijians and Tongans drink Kava.Lastly I put my school logo on because I like to learn.

WAL: How to use Ratios 

Today in class I have finished my maths work for Number Ninja's which was all about Ratios.I have so far finished Three parts of the work and I and also looking forward for more work.One thing that I found challenging was trying to give a strategy to support my answer.Here is my work that I have finished and please leave me a comment if I made a mistake or if you have a different answer or strategy.

Activity 3

  1. The ratio of rice to water for cooking should be about 1:2

  1. How many cups of water would you need if you had 2 cups of rice?

Answer: 4 because if you times 1 by 2 you would have 2 and then you would have to times 2 by 2 which equals 4

  1. How much rice is needed for 5 cups of water?

Answer: I think the answer is 10 because you could use the 1 to make 5 and then you times the 2 by 5 which equals 10.

  1. What fraction of the volume of rice and water should be water?
Answer: I think that the answer is ⅔ because for every ⅓ of rice you need 2 cups or ⅔ .

2. The ratio of colourblind people to not colour blind people is 1:24

  1. Maria did a survey at her school and she found out that there were 6 colour blind students.How many students aren’t colour blind?

Answer: I think that the answer is 144 because 24x3=72 and then you have to times it by 2 since you only times the 24 by 3 which equals 144.

3.Peter made a Tui feeder in his garden by mixing sugar and water in the ratio of 2:9

  1. He put in 4 teaspoons of sugar. How much water should he add?
Answer: I think 18 because he doubled they 2 which equaled 4 and then to make it even you have to double the 9 which equals 18
  1. Another day he put in 4 and a ½ cups of water.How much sugar should he add?
Answer: I think that he should add 1 cup of sugar because 4 and a ½ is half of 9 and then you need to half 2 which equals 1 to make it even.

Technology Reflection

WALT: Make Pasta Salad

Today I have made a presentation all about me going to Technology and making Pasta Salad.One thing that I found pretty challenging was trying to remember the method for making this dish.I enjoyed being inside Miss Tuipulotu class so far because I like to learn new things that I can do at home like cooking and new games.Here is the presentation that I have finished and please leave me a comment if you have made this dish before and if I have made a mistake.

Should we sell Sugary drinks to students before school?🏫

WALT:Find our opinion on whether we should sell sugary drinks to students before school 🏫

Today I have recorded a video with my buddy Akanesi all about an article that we read which was all about Two Dairies coming together and stop selling sugary drinks to students before school.After we read this article we filled out a Oreo template on a  google drawing and we gave reasons why we thought that this was a good idea to not sell the drinks in the morning.The Oreo template is something that we use in our school when we are trying to persuade someone or to give our own opinion on a topic.The template is O for opinion, R for Reason, E for example and O for your Opinion.One thing that I found challenging was trying to give some examples that could help support my reason.Here is the Video that we have created together and please comment if I made a mistake or if you agree or disagree with our reasons and examples.

Elder Traill's Home Coming

IALT:Write about what I did on Saturday.

On Saturday I went to my church around 8:00pm because on of the Missionaries from our ward came back from his Mission.I was excited to see this returned Missionary because he was serving in Fiji.I went with my Sisters Best friend Rose and her three Nieces Kalo,Theresa and Meliame.When we got inside we were late but we were just in time for the food.I was happy because I saw most of my Fijian cousins there and I saw my brother and his son Ariki.I went up and joined the line for my food.I decided to eat Chicken Curry with Roti.Roti is something that Fijians make for people to eat with Curry.When they started announcing that the Young Woman's we're going to do their item I was excited because I was watching them rehearse earlier and the song went well with their dance.Before they started they asked Elder traill if he could sit on a special chair in the front.After the item we watched the Primary do their Item.One of the funniest parts was that their was a little boy named Junior was throwing a cup at them while they were dancing.One of my favourite items that I enjoyed watching was all my Aunties,Uncles and Cousins singing and dancing.Junior made his second appearance by dancing with his dad while his dad was doing his dance with the fan.The best part of that item was watching Junior picked up a piece of a cup up and then we waved it around like it was a fan.When all of the items were finished we had a Lollie Lay ceremony which is when we take Lollie Lays up,Congratulate him and then put it over his head.I enjoyed going to Elder Traill's Home Coming because since I want to serve a Mission I wanted to listen to his experience.
