Tha Zin Poem Practice

City Autumn
The air breathes frost. A thin wind beats
Old dust and papers down gray streets

And an old man totters past with a cane
Wondering if he’ll see spring again.

Tha Zin Ratio

Task description : This is a presentation about  ratios.

Tha Zin Musical Madness

Today is the first day of term 4 and our theme for this term is musical madness. Team 4 is making our own songs, music and instruments. It’s gonna be hard for us because there is only 9 weeks and in term 1 there was 11 weeks of school, and also there is gonna be test so we are trying to fit everything in.

This is what the teams did for Musical Madness all of their one was really cool and they had such great ideas.

Team one, the teachers in team one was playing snap but with different type of music in the background, when they played a sad song in the background they started crying (not for real tho it was just pretend) and then when they played a happy song they got out of their chairs and they started cleaning which I thought was weird and then after they started dancing.

Team two, one of the teachers came on the stage with a ukulele and started playing it and then she sang the lion sleeps tonight, then one by one the teachers came on the stage with their musical instrument. Then at the end they all got on the stage and started singing and playing their instrument.

Team three, this time the teachers did not perform their musical madness they made a video and it was songs in real life their one was my favourite but also team 4 was my favourite.

Team five, they was sitting on the couch watching the lion king with different music. Also there was popcorn everywhere on the stage but their one was cool I liked it but it was not my favourite.

This is what my team did for this term
Team 4 which is my team, the teachers were in Mr Goodwin’s car and they were lip syncing their favourite songs my favourite song was Mr Goodwin one which was the sound of revenge. Then at the end when they park the car near Mrs Jacobson car they were all looking at him.

I didn't really know what the theme was going to be but then when got to assembly and saw on the screen it said musical madness, i thought we were going to learn music and our own instrument and even our own songs.

I think that this term is gonna be really cool and I can’t wait to make our own songs and our own instrument.

Tha Zin Stardome Writing

On Thursday we went to stardome to learn more about space because this term our theme is Guardians of the galaxy so it is about space.There was three groups the first group was room six and half of room seven, the second group was room ten and nine, and the last group was room eight and the rest of room seven.My maths group went early, there was six groups and I was ink the last group with my mum and david Mrs Clarkes son.

We went to stardome at 9 o'clock firstly we had to line up in our lines and we sat there on the ground in the breeze. Then a few minutes later after talking and talking about the rules and stardome we went on the bus and we sat down on a chair. I sat next to my mum and it was really quite SIKE it was so loud my eyes were wide open.Later when we got to stardome Miss Scanlan said that we were early so the best group that sat up got to go to the park first and guess who it was GROUP SIX my group YAY. We got to play on the park only ten minutes :( but still worth it.

After ten minutes we went inside and we started looking around the place. Later we went into a room where there was planets and a big screen and we looked at the planets. Then after we did that we had a quiz and we went around and there was questions that we had to answer and some of them were a bit hard.After a while when we were finished we took the ipad and gave it back to the lady.

Then the lady came back and she told us to follow her so we did and we ended up in a huge movie theater and we watched a movie well it was more of a cartoon then sadly after that the lady gave Miss Scanlan (my maths teacher) tickets and we went outside and on the bus but most of us did not want to leave like me. When we got back to class there were no one left because it was their turn to go to stardome.We had our morning tea and then we watched the news.

Tha Zin Cross Country Recount

Last week on Friday we had our annual Cross Country like always it was burning hot. I am in team red for this year. We had an early lunchtime and it was really short almost like morning tea. At morning tea there was sausage sizzle and they were $2  but sadly me and my brother did not buy one because we had no money.

After lunchtime we had to sit in a line of Yr 6 girls, Yr 6 Boys, Yr 5 Girls and Yr 5 boys. We had to sit there for ages and ages but finally it was Yr 5 girls turn I was so nervous. Mr Burt said ready … get … set … GO and off we went it was so muddy were we where running. When I got back my teacher said that I came 6th and it was not that bad but still I wanted to come first maybe just maybe next year I will try my best and be faster at Cross Country. Oh and did I tell you what happened when I came back to the court I was puffing so much I felt like my heart was pumping so fast. But after that day I had fun and I liked it.

Tha Zin Guardians of the Galaxy

Welcome to earth my name is Tha Zin and here with me is Rozaidah.
These days we have to take care of our home ( Earth ).
We have to find a new home on another safe planet because earth is no longer safe.
Earth is dangerous cause of air pollution, water pollution, soil pollution and more.

We need to find a new home that has water, food and shelter for us to live.

We first went to mars but that was too cold for us to live on.
Then we left mars and went to jupiter but that was too cold
So then we went to venus but guess what it was too hot so we left quickly but then when we found out that all of the planets were not right for us we just went back to earth.

Well then when we arrived back home (known as Earth) we did a little tidy up.Then when we fixed up earth it was cleaner than before except for the building where it caused  the pollution  we had to do something about it so what we did was took down the building.

Well a few years have past and its still how it was so that's good but if we don’t look after our home we will have to find a new home (planet).We only have enough supply of oxygen for three years for all of us to live.Since our planet doesn't have healthy food and oxygen for us because of pollution.After three years we found out that there was actually enough oxygen for all of us to live on earth for a very very very long time.

We learnt a very important message and that is look after your home (planet) treat it nicely and that make sure  that you pick up your rubbish.

Tha Zin Can He Save Her?

On a sunny wednesday a little girl named Lilly was excited to go to the sky tower. Her mum Rebecca was taking her there and then when they got to the tower cafe when Rebecca was ordering their food Lilly met a strange woman. The lady told her that she could fly and Lilly did not know if she could but then the lady said that she was a fairy and that she had magic.

So then Lilly went to the top of the tower and she looked down for a second and right before she fell off Kelsey Parrant saw her and then when Lilly jumped off. Kelsey Parrant ran as fast and catched her right in time. Then Rebecca went to Kelsey Parrant and said thank you so much for saving my daughter’s life. Guess who was watching them it was the strange lady and her name was … JORDIN. TO BE CONTINUED

Tha Zin What's For Dinner

On a Wednesday night I was getting ready to have dinner with my family when I heard the doorbell ring. It was really late so I had no idea who it could have been. But when I opened the front door Pete and Manu was standing right in front of me they said could we come in so of course I invited them inside. They told me I had to create a three course dinner meal for them and they told me that I only had a little bit of time. So I went in the kitchen as fast as I could.

When I got to the kitchen I got my apron and put it on. Then I thought of something to cook after a few minutes I knew what to cook. For entree I am cooking mini pizzas right now I felt a bit nervous because I had never cooked without an adult before so I was not sure if I would do good. After I made the mini pizza’s I put them on the plate and then I left that aside and then I started on my sauce. Then when I was done with my sauce I poured it on the plate that I put the pizza on.

After I took the plates out and put them on the table. When they took a bite out of it it was so quiet and I was even more nervous. Then when they told me they loved it I was so happy then they told me that they could not wait for main so I went back into the kitchen.

But this time I was so nervous that I forgot to wear the apron then after a few seconds I knew what I was going to cook. For main I am cooking spaghetti with meatballs I am also nervous on this one cause I might not get this one right. Then when I was finished cooking spaghetti and meatballs I served it to the judges.

They told me that it was delicious and that they wanted it on their menu. Then they told me to go and make my dessert so I went in the kitchen.

For dessert I am making vanilla ice cream with whip cream. After I  made the mixture I put the mixture in the freezer and then started on my wip cream. After I made my vanilla ice cream and whip cream I put them into a cup and served it to the judges.

They told me that they loved it and that they give it a 10 out of 10 and when I heard that I was so happy then they told me good night and went out the door.

Tha Zin Maths Fractions

Tha Zin Swimming Lessons

Last three weeks year 5 and 6 went swimming all week except for friday. Every time after swimming we get a chair and put our togs and towel on the chair. There was group 1, group 2 and group 3 and guess my group if you thought group 3 then you are correct I was in group 3.

For swimming we needed to bring our swimming togs and our towel but if we had goggles we could bring them too.First we had to get a shower and then we had to go our group and then sit down.We had to put our hands on the side and then twist in the pool.

During my swimming lessons I learnt about the life jackets and noodles. For the noodles it is where you can go in groups of 2 or 3 I was in group of 3. One person has to use the noodle and the other person has to go in the water and the person with the noodle has to tie the noodle in a not and then throw it to the person in the water. For the LIfe Jackets it is where you have to fit a life jacket and then get in the pool by standing up and arms out then take a big step out into the water. Then you can huddle or huddle into a group.

I learnt how to doggy paddle and before I was really bad at it and now I am a pro at it.

Jess also told us that if you look at the selling you will float. Jess also taught us the group huddle with the life jackets and the huddle one by yourself. The group huddle one is where you huddle up with some other people on your boat or on your ship. For the group huddle you need to hold the back of their neck and then form a circle.Then for yourself you need to make yourself warm by holding on your leg  and then you have to wait for someone to arrive and to get you.

Thank you teachers for swimming lessons and for letting us learn how to swim. Also thank you to the swimming instructors for teaching us to get ready for when it actually happened and thank you for teaching us. Thank you thank you thank you.

I enjoyed swimming under the water and then on your back. I also liked the part where you get to go in the boat and then where you fall backwards in the water

After a while they waited for Ruby to fall into their trap so they waited … and waited … and waited until they heard a BIG BUMP. Then they went to go and check and BULLSEYE they got Ruby in their trap and they was so happy that they skipped and hopped and jumped all over the place. Ruby was very sad but she did not give up so then when the three bats were gone ruby got her rope out from her bag and it came in handy after all so then when she got out of the trap she ran to her cottage and got on her bike and rode it to the end of the island.When she got to the end of the island she got off her bike and got into a helicopter.When one of the bats saw Ruby in the helicopter he told the other bats and they ran as fast as they could and jumped on the helicopter and when Ruby saw them she screamed and the bats could not hold on so they dropped but that was not the end of the three bats remember they can fly they have wings.So when Ruby got to her friends birthday party she had a very fun time.

TERM 2! Maori Technology

Today is the first day of term 2 and our topic for this term is Now That’s Thinking.This term for team 4 we are learning about maori technology.What I mean is we are looking at maori technology from the past and seeing how better it got in the future.

We will be comparing  things like how it was in the past and how it is in the future.We will be also seeing how it had changed like example -  cars they used to be old and slow and it was black then and now it is fancy and fast and you can pick any type of colour that you like.

We are trying to see what type of technology did the maori people used before pakeha even came.Also we are seeing what type of tools that they used and how they used it.

I think we are looking at how they made the wakas and how they fished and all tools they used to get food.I also think that we are comparing things like how things looked like in the past and comparing things.

I want look at sailing and fishing because for sailing i want to know how they made wakas and how they sail it.For fishing I want to know what type of tools they used and how they got fish.But what I do know is that these days people go fishing with a net or a fishing rod.

I mean that I want to learn but also compare things like how it was in the past and how it is in the future.
