The second one was called a shofar it is like a Conch horn but a longer one it is what someone else has also discovered and started knowing the use of it and how to use it. The third horn was called a bugel horn it is like a trumpet that you blow to. the last 2 was a trumpet it had three different keys one was low one was a bit high and one was high and the last one was a bit of a laugh it a sports cone that Ms Va'afusuaga wanted Mr Jacobson try so then he blowed and made his funny beats.

Immersion Assembly

Immersion Assembly..... What is Immersion Assembly?..Immersion Assembly is what my school Pt England love to do at the start of terms. Well today which was Monday we had our Immersion Assembly to start of term 4. There were 5 teams That Represented there play or their movie. My favourite was Team 4 because there were three reasons that I love about it. the first one is because they were singing in the car. The second one is because they all took turns driving. The last but not what they are focusing on is to create their own music and they are also focusing onto making their own instruments.




My second favourite was team 5 because it was so shocking that Mr Wiseman's wife was Ms Tapuke. And that Whaea Kelly, Mrs Tele'a and also Mrs Ilaoa were the children. and the friday was always their movie night. It was cool because now we are focusing on composers. Composers are people who writes music.

Script for Space Junk

Kia ora and welcome back my name is Adrienne and this video is going to be about space junk what is space junk? Space junk is when people littre on earth and it moves to space.

Why do people like to litter? I think people like to litter because they see that there are people who like to pick up rubbish around their street. Well guess what people thats your job when you drop your rubbish you pick it up you do not wait for people.

Wait what on earth is space junk? Now here I will explain properly what space junk is. Space junk is the term used to describe man-made rubbish floating in space -- often litter from space exploration, including spanners, nuts, bolts, gloves, and shards of spacecraft.

Why should you stop littering? You should stop littering because it is not good for your property and you should start looking after our world.

And now there you go I have explained what space junk is and why it is important for you to stop littering.

Filming For Room 3's Movie

As Room 3 was planning to do some filming this week and last week they were one of Mrs Tele'as busiest weeks of all weeks. first she had to get us ready then she had to work on some of our movies. Lastly she checked our script to see if it made sense for.


Now it was our turn first we looked at our script and we had to practice our line's but then it got harder for us because we had to learn it. And then in the movie we had to say it of by heart.


When it came to my lines I couldn't remember some of the words because it was hard for me to remember. Well I never remembered because sometimes people can't remember what they need to say. just like what I did I couldn't remember.



When my teacher Mrs Tele'a started recording I got scared and at the same time I was really nervous so then I had to calm myself down. I started talking to my friends cause it stops me from getting so nervous and scared.


On the second week we did one more film and it was perfect I knew all of my lines well except. for one line and I made it to the end. which was awesome. YAY!!

Now thats thinking Diary

Now that’s thinking Diary

Name: VITAMIN A+
Anna v, Ana l, And Adrienne.
Chosen Idea: It is to make a maze game for the team team 5 block so that when there's nothing to do they can play our maze game and win prizes like lollies.


Each week write down what your group achieved.
  • Explain what you contributed towards that week's achievements.
  • Note any problems you or your group are experiencing.

Week 1
We kind of got stuck on what to do so we decided to make hand dryers but then we had a problem and the problem was that it had cost heaps of money for our school to pay but then we got there. We decided to think really hard.


Week 2
So then we had another idea and it was to make a maze game for team 5’s common room. So we decided that the maze game was our final plan. After that we were researching all the materials we needed we told Mrs Tele’a what we wanted.



Week 3
We did a sketched what we thought it will look like and then we drew mazes and we labeled stuff and we labeled our drawing and one of our label was a H in a circle means Hole.





Week 4
This was the best inquiry ever because Mr Wiseman came with our wood and we couldn’t cut it yet because we had to make a cardboard model first and plan how to make it work.




Week 5
We finished of making our cardboard model and where to put our small pieces of cardboard.



Week 6
We started to make our real maze game with wood so then we started of by chopping the wood into pieces and start painting it and start putting them on the next day and now we are nearly finished.



What did the Vitamin A+ group learn this term for now that's thinking? We learned how to cut with a sword and how to plan what to do.

What did we get stuck on? We kind of got stuck on some of them we were planning on making hand dryers in the boys and girls toilets. So then we got stuck because we didn’t have enough money to pay for it and also we didn’t have another way for what to do so we just planned on making a maze game for team 5 at pt england school.  

What did my team achieve? My team achieved on teamwork and working together and planned it good with Mr Wiseman.

Complex Sentences

Tuesday, 9 May 2017

Dependent and dependent clauses



Independent and dependent clauses are about compound sentences. a dependent clause is a group of words that contain a subject and a predicate bout does not expresses a complete thought. Dependent clauses often start with the subordinating conjunctions: After    Before     Until     Although    Since    While    Whatever    As   Though    When    Because    Unless

Here is a little Example



They can not stand on their own as sentences.
