Geometry: 2D and 3D shapes

For this week our theme for maths is Geometry. We had to build a 3D model out of small building blocks and we had to then draw it as a 2D drawing. We had to get a top view, birds eye view, side view and perspective view. So that's what we are learning so take a look at my presentation here.

Today my numeracy class and I are working on our geometry. We had to build something using small building cubes and build a rocket ship with our partner. Next we had to draw a 2D version of our 3D  rocket ship, which was the side, birds eye view, front and perspective view without looking at our building. Here is some pictures of my building from different views.

Perspective view             Side view                         Birds view                 Front view

Anyway we are learning to draw a 2D representation of a 3D model  and draw a plan from a side, front and top view.

My I Wonder Animation

Kia ora. Welcome to my blog and thanks for coming to see my animation. Here my animation is about the galaxy and our theme was Guardians of the Galaxy. We had to search and draw things about our wonderful and massive galaxy. We had to write down our questions that we wanted to know and it had to start off with "I Wonder". So enjoy my animation.

GEGNZ student summit

Today the 11th of August the year 7 and 8 extension group had the privilege  to go to this years GEGNZ at Ormiston Junior College. The first and second session were a little boring and the last was alright. Ormiston Junior College was such a big school and had all these things that a kid would ever want in a junior and senior school. Anyway the extension group and I had split up into 2 groups and they were the p.e.n.n crew and the scratch crew. We had the chance to go to different workshops around the school and we had saw some cool rooms.

But first we had to go into this big theater that was built into the school and we had to listen to Ormiston Junior College  sing us a waiata as a welcoming gift. Then after that we had a father and daughter speak about their mind blowing adventure under the sea and they were known as the "Young Ocean Explorers." Next we had a house keeping talk and then straight after that we moved onto our first session and my group and I (scratch team) moved onto Osmos, makey-makey and lots more.

Later on when we were released from the house keeping talk the p.e.n.n group and the Scratch team headed their separate ways. The p.e.n.n group went on to show how our school does p.e.n.n for 45 minutes and as I said the scratch team went to a workshop to see what other people were talking about. So our 45 minutes was up and it was our turn to present what we did and it was a tutorial on how to use scratch and to show them how to create the game "beat the goalie". I was quite nervous at first but then half way through I was confident. It was pretty annoying because the internet connections was really bad but we got through it and finished. Sadly we didn't have enough time to finish presenting our presentation all because of technical difficulties.

It was a pretty big and a splendid day at Ormiston Junior College. Wow and that school is amazing. Anyway thanks to Tyson and Miss Va'afusuaga for helping Mrs Langitupu for making it possible for the year 7 and 8 extension group and I to go to an really exciting event. So that was the extension group and I's long day.

Reflecting on my speech

This is my speech reflection. Here I have told you what I think I did really well when I said my speech and I few things that I need to work on. My speech was about animal abuse. I was so scared to say my speech in front of my literacy class. I was happy that I received feedback from my class and it was great to hear what people thought I did good.
