Mana Performance

Kia ora
Today we went to see a performance called Mana. We were learning some cultural things from different polynesian nations. We were also learning about some different languages and dances from some American Indian tribes. The name of the guy who was doing these things is Bernard Mangakahia and he was very entertaining. He also performed to us the hoop dance which was performed by American Indians. During the dance he was spinning around and creating different types of animals including a flower just by using seven hoops, the animals he created with the hoops were horse,snake,eagle,butterfly and a flower. Afterwards he asked for a volunteer to do the dance that he just did and the volunteer was a senior girl called Grace.

The Pacific Ring of Fire

Malo lelei
This term my class and I have been learning about famous volcanoes and the Pacific Ring of Fire. We used My Maps to find the volcanoes and using the line tool to connect them together and create the Pacific Ring of Fire. After we connected the famous volcanoes together and made the Pacific Ring of Fire we wrote a description about the famous volcanoes. Also I learnt a myth that some people believe that in Mount Kilauea there is a goddess that is called Pele and she is the goddess of fire. 

I found this task interesting and fun to do and what I found challenging was finding the famous volcanoes also I would love to create a new map on My Maps again.

Hay Park Way Thinglink

Today we have been learning how to create a positive digital footprint using thinglink.

Sometimes it is a fun way to share music and images but we thought it would be better for our learning to be shared on it.

Here is my thinglink about the Hay Park Way. The Hay Park Way is to be respectful, resilient and responsible.

If you click on my thinglink you can find out more information about these three values.
