Matariki poem

Earlier this week Team Tui started their learning on Matariki.Team Tui’s focus for the last couple of days was to learn on the history of Matariki. For Writing this week we had to write poems on our senses and the stars of Matariki. For my poem I had chosen the senses Felt, heard and seen along with the stars Ururangi, Wai-puna-rangi and Waita. My poems describe my experience since my childhood days. 

Kelly sport-Rugby league

Room 13 had an exciting morning as our class had Kelly sports Rugby League.  All of our class had tried techniques some of us weren’t so confident about but He who stands, lives and He who sits, perishes. There were different warm ups and may I say my knees burn. The first warm up was like Bull rush. As an example we need to crawl on our knees and someone will tackle us and if we fall on the floor we become a tagger. Afterwards we repeated this game but on our feet. Of Course I got bumped off and fell on my back but I had fun. Likewise this was good practice for the people who are going to the rugby tournament this week. Sometime later on it had turned into a game boys vs girls. Us girls had 1 point but then the coaches changed it to mixed teams. On the other hand people turned on their pro mode and went to try hard. In the end all of us had enjoyed our time we had.

Why teachers shouldn’t hit naughty children


Ahasi & Kymani opinion on why Teachers shouldn’t hit naughty children

In my opinion Teachers should not hit naughty children because sometimes hitting them would make them even worse. Teachers shouldn’t hit naught children because it is against the law and it is illegal. Teachers should not be allowed to hit naughty children because it is abusive and because it can cause damage to children.

Teachers shouldn’t hit naughty children because it will then teach children to use acts of aggression and violence to solve their problems. When Teachers hit naughty children it can lead to physical injury and health problems. When you hit naughty children it can give children a message that hitting others is an okay way of dealing with strong feelings.

If you do not have permission to verbally or physically abuse a student or someone, Don’t.

I say that teachers should not touch students unless they are using self defense. If teachers think they are teaching with violence they aren’t. 

Teachers should not have the privilege to lay their hands on you. If a teacher is allowed to hit students we should be able to fight back in defense.  Can your boss hit you for wrongdoing? No, that’s illegal. It is child abuse.  A child can be traumatized from a teacher’s action and will have to live with the fact that they had an abusive teacher. Abuse does not help with kids if they don’t listen and makes it worst.

Youth law says that it is illegal for teachers to do any physical punishment.

Orange and water experiment

Title: Orange and water experiment

Hypothesis/Prediction (What I think will happen and why?)

My Hypothesis is that it will sink due to the weight of the orange


A bucket of water and a orange


Fill up your bucket and then grab your orange and see if it sinks or not.

When you see if it sinks or floats, peel your orange and see if it is different to your last result.


When we put the orange in it floated and it was different to my prediction. After we had peeled the orange and put it in it sank so the I was also right.
