Reflection - Move Ya Body

Right now my group and I are starting to practice our item for Team 5. We are going to be performing next week, I am not really sure what day we are performing on but my group and I are doing a Bollywood dance. In my group I have Samoa & Myztique. When we first learnt the dance it was quite difficult knowing that we are not from this country. One thing we struggled on was understanding what the song was about but luckily in our group Samoa knew this song off by heart. When we were practising we learnt some dance moves that were way beyond difficult but we still wanted to try it out. It was surprising to know tat we learnt the dance in one day!

My Poem

Assembly Time!
Feeling the cold breeze
As it feels like 100 degrees
Playing with my friends
As we walk to class
Looking around I see the bright green grass

Walking to the hall
As we stand up nice and tall
Singing the national anthem
As I see kids throwing a tantrum
We continue singing
When I hear the bell ringing

More time to teach:
Our classes in NZ are struggling to cope with their teachers,
doing a lot of jobs for the school rather than teaching their students.  
From my perspective I think that teachers should spend more time to
teach their students than to write reports all day about our attitude and the
way we learn. The main focus is to actually have a full session to teach us.

Resourcing for Additional needs:
Classes in NZ are struggling to handle their rare student’s.
By rare I mean that one teacher in each class have a group
of students that have a hard time focusing on their learning,
while other student’s find it way easier.  I think that schools
need more teacher’s to help our students catch up with the
rest of the class.

Better Pay:
From my perspective I think that the money that teachers are
getting paid right now is not enough, because some teachers
have been teaching for more than ten years and their still
getting paid the same amount of money as new teachers.  
Teachers work everyday just to pay the bills and to teach
our students, but there’s other jobs like being a lawyer, you
only work for a few days but you still get paid more than teachers.

So there you have it! I hope that these paragraphs have helped you.
I hope that people start making changes for the people
that work as teachers.

Dancing with the Stars

For this week's activity we got to read a book based on ''Dancing with the stars" Our task was to create a poster that will help other's through their hard times and this is what I came up with. With this poster I think it means a lot of things to other's but to me this poster just give's me one topic and that's to not give up. This activity encouraged me by reading the book and answering the questions.

How to have a fun holiday!

Have you ever thought about how you can turn your holiday into something amazing. Well if you’re interested continue reading this for more ideas.

When it’s time for the holiday’s my Mum & Dad already have a list of chores that we have to do. So waking up in the morning is hard because once my siblings wake up that’s when they run to the lounge and play on the PS4, but when I wake up it’s a different story. When I wake up that’s my Que to clean up the lounge also my room and different areas of the house. While i’m cleaning I feel desperate just to play at least once because I hate cleaning up then looking in the corner and there you see my brother’s playing on the Game Console. I feel like it’s better to do the chores first then to jump straight on to the game console.

Now that the chores are out of the way we can move to different activities you can play. One thing that me and my siblings love doing is playing touch in our backyard or we like going out to the beach with our family and we like playing family activities. There are plenty of other things you can do but these things are my personal favourite things. The reason behind that is because it creates time for you and your family and it’s a special thing cause that’s you and your family bonding.

As I said before me and my siblings love to play outdoors in our backyard, but before playing you need to make sure you don’t ruin your parent’s plants or even ruin their lawn mowing. One thing I learnt from destroying my parent’s gardening is that I had to face some consequences. One thing I learnt from experiencing those consequences is that you should never mess up your Dad’s lawn mowing and your Mum’s Gardening.

As you know once my siblings wake they run straight away to the lounge and start playing on the Game Console. One thing I found out about my siblings is that they sometimes are bossy with the Game Console. So when it’s my turn they take their time as always complaining about why I didn’t turn that way and they also complain about why I didn’t aim for the payer behind me. So what i’m trying to say is that you should always share the game with your family members or whoever it is you’re playing with.

Well there you go! 4 ideas of what you can in the holidays.
Make sure to do the chores before playing on the game console. That way you will have more time to play. Also make sure to have fun playing outdoors and to include your neighbours as well, and definitely make sure to share the game console with everyone. Hope you have a fun holiday!!

Welcome Back

Dear Mrs Tele’a,

My name is Ana Leisi and I am a Year 8 student at Pt England School. My ethnicity is tongan and I am the middle child of three in my family. In my spare time I like to spend time with Friends and Family.
My favourite sports are Rugby, Tag, Touch and also Softball.

This year will be my last year attending Pt England School. My favourite subjects are Reading, Writing and Maths. Right now I am currently looking at going to Tamaki College. I don’t know what other college fits me best. During my work time I don’t like getting distracted and I also don’t like it when I don’t finish my work.

Other then that I hope that as the year goes on you enjoy your time being a teacher in Room 3 and one of our leaders in Team 5. I hope that your class and your students treat you good and I hope you have a fun time in Room 3 for the next two terms.


Yours Sincerely,
Ana Leisi
