Extension Animation Term 3 2017

Paideia Seminar Term 3 2017

Sitting, relaxed, waiting for a turn to speak. We were having another Paideia Seminar, finally someone spoke and it actually made sense so I added on saying “ if Africa became like America the world would be a pretty rubbish place to live on, because America has already created heaps of pollution and if Africa is like America the world will be polluted!”

I achieved my goal of speaking more because I spoke like 7 times. Right after I said the America thing my mind popped up with another idea based on the exact same thing, I said again “ if every country was like America if you were on a plane and wanted to go to America you wouldn’t know where to go because every country will be like America.”

Every time you got three ticks you could take three lollies home lucky for me as I told you I got 7 ticks, everyone was mostly excited about the lollies because they are very yummy and everybody knows that!

It was so fun, I loved it, everybody came because the lollies well so did I but also I enjoyed talking more than eating lollies! My goal for next Term is linking on to what another person says!

My Favourite Part Of Church Camp

Muddy, wet, and excited as I tramp over the gooey muddy tracks and head towards the park. As I swing on the ladder I couldn’t stop thinking about 'The Messy Games' and how much fun I would have while I would be playing. A few minutes later the siren calls “everyone to the field it’s time for the… Messy Games!”

We were playing a game that I like to call 'Dodge ’n’ Slide' because how you play is...


Running Team
  1. Hit the ball with the Bat from home base (which looked like
  2. Run and slide on your belly and jump into the object to be safe
  3. You cannot hit them with the ball when they are inside the objects
  4. You are not allowed to run around the slide
  5. One person at a time
  6. If you 2 people jump inside the same object then the person who jumped inside is out
Ball Team:
  1. Throw the ball at the person who is running and sliding if you hit them then they are out
  2. If you catch the ball on the full then they are out

When it was my turn I hit the ball pretty far and slid on the slide got back up and hopped inside the object. I was Safe! When the next person hit I quickly dashed then slid then again leaped inside the object, as the other person gets tagged, As I went this time it the same thing happened except when I just got off the slide I was tagged!

My next turn, the exact same thing happend to me and I was tagged in the same place. Over and Over again. It kinda sucked every time getting out in the same place! Once the Messy Games had finished, well it wasn’t all over for me and a few others…

While I was getting cleaned with the hose I was watching My brothers and the youth boys sliding down this huge mud patch, first I was going to go but I realised I was already clean so I couldn’t be bothered, I saw Willie walking up the mountain but he was already clean so I said to him “Willie don’t go up your already clean” He smiled back at me and turned away, after a while I actually ended up going up that mountain and sliding on my nono/Bottom, the hill was very steep so you had to be careful but the faster we went the more sliding happened!

Animation Voice over Term 3

Earth: Peaceful, livable and breathable until... “This is your Mission. Find anything shiny and keep on going until you reach the core.” the driller hummed while drilling, low battery, “Oh no I broke the core of the earth what should I do now, might as well wait” solid rock, ting ting ting screeches the hammer as they build the spaceship, “Let’s go before we turn to stone.” “Oh no there’s an asteroid field, fire the space missile, quick!” boom, “ There’s a cool planet let’s live there”, Earth 2.0, 8 years later, “Bye Bye.” The End

Solar Eclipse Imaginitave Recount

While the wheels were rolling, and as Mum sped to the field, my brothers and I asked, “What’s the surprise, Mum and Dad?”
“Just wait we’re almost there!” Mum replied, RRRRRRR screeches the car urging to stop,
“Finally we’re here” I sighed in exhaustion.

We never knew that it was Solar Eclipse that night until…
“Guys guess what, it’s the Solar Eclipse, and you know what that means? The moon covers the sun!” she says.
“YAY!” we reply “I’ve always wanted to see it!” We keep on saying this as we dash to the middle of the crowd!

“Whoaaaa” we shouted as we were amazed by how fast the moon travelled along the sun as Mum mentioned,
“This is called the Diamond Ring. See how the Moon is in the middle of the sun? You can see the sun outline and that is called the Diamond Ring!” Mum tells us, as the moon orbited around the sun. I decided to run around the whole field because I was so hyper!

After I had done 5 laps I took a break, and sat down staring at the moon and sun. I was in love! I had never seen this before ever in my entire life. I remembered Mum telling us about it but forgot to bring the camera!

After 7 hours we all got tired, drove home and had a great night sleep!

The Fox And The Crow

Capture The Flag

As I Walked along the pathway I was chatting and I was carrying the gear to the big field.
“Stop!” shouted Miss West, “There will be no talking at all, and please stop playing with the gear or you will not be playing!” She said strictly. I was pulled back, frightened that I would be sent back, but that did not happen!

I didn’t really care if I was sent back, and what was the point it was only just a little game. On the way there we were accompanied by Miss Eadie’s dog. Everyone in the school loves the cute little fluffy white thing. George and Marika stopped to pat him and it took us a long time to get those two off that dog!

Once we got to the goalpost we stopped, put the gear down, and waited for instructions.
“Loseti, Josh, Levonah, Pisi, Jacob, and AJ,” Miss West started saying, “Could you please set up the game!”
“What’s the game?” I asked.
“Capture The Flag” she said.
“YAY!” we all shouted!

When everything was sorted she gathered us into two teams.
“1, 2, 1, 2, 1, 2, 1, 2...” Once she had counted everyone, Freedom came just in time my best friend! Miss West explained the rules:

Then we played! Everyone running everywhere around the field aiming for the flag or person, luckily my team, won we had got all the flags on our side! As Miss West blew her whistle to end and finish the game!

We had a second round, but this time I wasn’t playing, I was hanging out with my friends and worms, there was a little hole in the ground with worms inside, I accidentally ripped one in two, or for easy saying I killed it. All my friends were complaining why. But I told them
“I did it on accident, I was trying to pull it out of the hole, then, rip!”

They were still complaining about the worm, but I just casually walked away and ignored them. Straight after that Miss West blew the whistle again to stop the game our team had won again! But the sad thing that happened that let everyone’s hopes down,
“alright everyone!” Miss West said “ packing up, we’re going back to class!”

We were all moaning while walking back to class, wining just because we had two short game of Capture The Flag

Extension Rubric Mark Term 2

My Marks for Term 2 were better than I thought. I got 27 points out of 30, that’s really good. I am feeling amazing because in Term 1 I only got 17 points which is still good it’s just this time I got 10 points more.

What I need to work on is contributing more in the Paideia Seminar, talking more and share more research and be confident to get better. How I got the marks was doing heaps of research, performed well, good drawing, and really good co-operation. Mrs Lagitupu and Mrs Sinclair helped us heaps and our group that we’re working with!

How Raindrops Meet Each Other

It all starts off in a lake or a puddle or a pool anywhere that has water and where water can survive!

Me and my friends are together now but hours later, we’re gone. Vanished into the sky only to be lost to the clouds!

At first you feel weird for your first time but as the longer you stay the more confident it gets!

One day me and my friends were in the clouds for 5 years already waiting to go down back to our home but not until the god of the water and clouds set us free.

How you get down there you have to prove that you're worthy and responsible and perfect which is hard!

It took me awhile to get down here but while I was up there all my friends had gone down here I was the last one, the water and cloud god was sad that I didn’t have anyone to play with so he sent me down, and I saw my friends. Ever since that day I have loved that god!

It’s like pot being stirred with different countries inside getting along together. In New Zealand there are lot’s of immigrants known as European, Pacific islanders, and Asian cultures live in New Zealand.

¾ of people live in the North Island and ¼ of people live in the South island, Auckland is the most popular city in NZ.

He was also a Catholic, a Catholic is someone who doesn’t believe Jesus Christ the saviour and our Redeemer but who believes in Mary Jesus’s mother, who gave birth to him.

Christopher Columbus had completed four voyages across the atlantic ocean. Columbus wasn’t the first European Explorer to arrive at America! Maori people voyaged thousands of miles across the unknown parts of the Pacific ocean, in small canoes and waka’s. To this day Maori culture is part of New Zealand’s National Identity!

A Pioneer is someone who is the first person or group to do something, like Neil Armstrong was the first Person to step on the moon, just like AJ Hackett a New Zealander to first invent Bungy Jumping.

Kiwi’s love to kayak, fish, go tramping, boat rides, bike riding, surfing, kites, sail, go around the world, camping, skateboarding, snowboarding, skiing, walking, climbing tree’s, loads of other exciting things!

Pedaia Seminar Term 2 2017

Listening to the sounds of voices being spoken out loud all the year 5 & 6 extension group, all sitting at a table chattering away as I sit bored on my chair staring at my chromebook, hungry tired and relaxed.

“I wanna hear from Toby” Mrs Lagitupu said as I replied saying “ Mine and AJ’s group we chose the Digital creators and designers, we learnt” I started to say when I was interrupted by someone.

After that person spoke I had looked up to the board and saw my name and with 1 tick that meant that every time we speak we get a tick. If you get three ticks that means that you can take three lollies home, yes that’s right lollies, sitting right on a plate in front of me I was dieing to have one!

Mrs Sinclair was writing the ticks on the board while Mrs Lagitupu sat down recording the whole thing! Almost everybody’s name was carved on that board until the turn came to AJ/ Partner & Friend of mine, she asked him the same thing she asked me “ What have you been learning about” “ummmmm” he replied!

While AJ was thinking for a while Mrs Sinclair decided “everyone have a lollie to refresh your brains” I took a Mentos it was really yummy! I felt cold, nervous, scared, frightened, petrified. I was surprised on how many people talked and how much they talked and how well they thought!

I got 3 ticks but Amelia got about 9 or 10 ticks, that’s really hard to get! When we had 1 last chocolate fish on our plate, I could see that AJ’s eyes were focused it daring to eat it when I saw him doing that I said to him ” Are you going to grab that or am I going to grab it for you?” he looked at me now and replied “ I wasn’t looking at it!”.

“I smiled”. I was also surprised of how much Bethan didn’t talk compared to last term, she was shouting away almost every second she would talk so basically you would listen to her for about the whole day!

Back In Da Day Production Recount 2017

The lights darkened as a group of year 5 and 6 students gathered round to pray, then the lights came alive and a girl appeared in the middle of the stage, standing there, about to speak, “Do you ever wonder why kids are always on there electronics” she started to say, that little girl’s name was Pisi and this was how our production began!
There was 15 of us creating a production with the whole school watching. I was one of the main characters, I was the brother of a whole lot of sisters. Everyone watched in the crowd as we played our parts.
Everyone was so frightened that they wanted to go home but I was used to this because i’ve been in a more embarrassing production, “Cindy In Da House”, I was chosen to be a leader of Backdrops, Props and Set Designing!
I frowned as I thought that the children would think that our production was boring but then I saw as especially the juniors were clapping and cheering for us even the parents and teachers were commenting after as we sat down at the edge waiting for everyone to leave but that part hasn't come yet.
What I need to work on later is not to poke this face, is when my eyes are facing up, then my tongue poking out and i’m smiling.
My favourite part was when the backdrop was in the yard and I was running then first thing I do, tripping over a shell with everyone watching. At the end I saw my Mum then running over to her.
She gave me a hug then started commenting of how Mrs Clark said “Toby has amazing backgrounds she told I said goodbye to everyone then me and Mum walked home together!
