Walt: solve problems with fractions, decimals and percentages.

In this task I solved a series of problems from fractions to decimals to percentages. It was easy but still a bit challenging.

My Test Results!

Hi readers! I have just gotten my writing test results back. The categories I was ok at was: idea's, organisation, vocabulary, sentence, punctuation and spelling. However I was quite weak with my sentence structure. By the end of the year I hope to have better grades then at the start of the year.

Aucklands Water Crisis

Walt: ask questions, skim and scam the text to decided what is important to make and refine predictions.

In this task I researched about the water crisis in Auckland.


Have you ever been to the ASB polyfest?  Well yesterday  I went with  the seniors of my school.  We went to understand and be reminded how important our cultures are.  Here are some highlights of the awesome day.  

One of my highlights were going to the Maori stage and getting there just in time to watch Kaipara college perform. The Kaipara college tribe is Ngati Kahungunu (one of my iwi).  I really enjoyed watching them perform I thought it was amazing. While I watched their performance I enjoyed a delicious watermelon sundae.

It was cool to see some of my family and friends while I was walking around this huge event with my group.  I saw a few of my year 9 and 10 friends from last year, and family I haven’t seen in a bit. Some of the friends I saw performed in their groups not long after I had given them my goodbyes.

I think that the importance of polyfest is to be reminded of the importance of our cultures, and to be reminded who we are.  Yesterday I learnt alot of things about languages and what would happen if we didn’t even have one.  I also saw/learnt what discipline looks like in my culture.

I also enjoyed the delicious food at polyfest (Watermelon sundaes, Mussel fritters etc.) I hope that I will get another chance to go to polyfest again as I had a blast. My group was called the Skittles and our helper was Noah's mother. My very favourite part of the day was going to the Maori stage. Click here to see what a couple Pt Englanders got upto.

My Role Model

Walt: to explain who our role model is and why

All of us have a role model, that one person that is always in your heart that you know you will remember forever.  My role model is my Koro.  Here are reasons he is my role model.

My koro is the head maori translator for child youth and family (siffs.)
He started off at Manukau institute of technology then moved to Wellington for Child, youth and family.  He has achieved very many things to this day and he travels to australia and all over new zealand for this job.

As a maori translater my koro speak fluent maori.  He talks to me in maori so I will understand him even more each time he speaks in my language.  One day I plan to be just like my Koro.

Last year my koro had a heart attack. Not long after he got out of hospital he started running and walking, Both my nana and koro are getting ready to walk the great wall of china.  Their trainings for this event are hardcore, they will do at least 30km a week.

Here are the reasons my Koro is my role model. Who is your role model?
