Tupuia Making pan pipes writing plan

Screen Shot 2017-10-11 at 2.39.29 PM.pngOn october the 25th of wednesday room 8 literacy had to make some pan pipes. We were pretty lucky to have Miss Moran she held everyone in the class and we have Miss Parrant. First we watched a video with the whole class and then we went to a table that table that I was on with Leonardy, Tupuia, Lorenzo, Kruz and me. So we all went of and did it step by step. First we watched a video about how to make a panpipe you just need 5 things. First you need 8 straws and cut the bendy part off. Then you make one of the ends sharp. You make a cardboard and it should look like a house that just got half and then you make the straws smallest to biggest. Then you put it onto the cardboard but make sure there is some space between it and then you tape it with stacked tape and then you just blow and then you write you name at the back. The thing that I enjoy we at the end we got to play with it. It sounds pretty cool. The thing that I learn was how to make it and now I think that I can make anything now.

immersion assembly term 4

Screen Shot 2017-10-11 at 2.39.29 PM.pngMonday the school had an immersion assembly on october the 16 the whole of team 4 lined up and got ready to the hall . we watched all of the teams 1,2,3,4, and 5 teachers showing what we are doing.Our theme is about musical madness team 1 teachers were show what they are doing. They are doing how music makes you feel. and team 2 showed us what they are doing,making songs with different instruments i liked it. It had high notes and low notes and that was team 2. Team 3’s movie was funny and cool they were telling stories with songs they were lip syncing to the music and they had good movie. Team 5 was watching the lion king there topic is about how music in movies invoke feelings. Team 4’s topic is about making instruments and creating 4’s movie was cool i liked how they were doing the same idea as Team 3 but in a different way team 4 teachers were playing music in Mr Goodwin’s car. Then they were singing till they got to school they parked the car and Mr Jacobson was looking at them then after that he wind down his window and then he was playing his music it was loud.What i want to do for this term is play with instrument and learn how they work. And i think that the new term theme is fun. It is because music is included and i like music. I listen to music on youtube.

Tupuia Immersion Assembly - Now that's thininking

Screen Shot 2017-04-18 at 12.22.55 PM.pngHello my name is Tupuia and we are learning technology and  So we will be learning how things have changed over the years like phones chairs and shoes. Now that's thinking! How technology has changed over the year is so good and bad the good thing is that there is games kids can play the bad thing is that people stay inside too much.Team 4 will be learning about how things could change or stay the same like phones shoes and  bikes.I think that the shoes should change and the phone should stay the same.

I really hope you had a good time please leave a good comment.
