Technology Reflection

Technology at Tamaki College

Today at technology we started off doing our school prayer. I finished half of my fruit juice project. I just need to fold the box and colour it in. After that I went on my netbook for more images about fruit. 

I enjoyed today's session.

Financial Literacy

Financial Literacy 

Today a accountant named Rachael from PwC came to our school to tell us about Credit and debt. She told us some important information about being credit worthy. Credit worthy is be responsible with something you borrow from a person and making sure you give it back on time and with braking it. So we gave her Ideas to gain someone's trust.

Ms Rachael gave us a work sheet about credit and debt and we had to fill in the gaps. From the work sheet it gave me ideas on how to spend my money wisely and careful, not to be careless with my money and to use vouchers.

I thought today's lesson wasn't a waste of time. I found it helpful and useful in life.

Manaiakalani Film Festival 2015

A few days ago schools in the Tamaki cluster made short films about learning and behaviour for the Manaiakalani Film Festival. The Film Festival was held at the Hoyts cinemas in Sylvia Park. We used the extreme screen and another theatre during the day, this is because there are too many schools and not enough seats.

Once we arrived at the cinemas we took our seats in the and waited for the films to start. At the start a person started talking about Manaiakalani. A few minutes later we started to watch the films. We only saw a few films because there was over 100 films and if you wanted to watch it you would have to go to the evening show.

My best film would probably be Room 8 of Glenbrae School because they did dancing and singing and the judges were funny.

Technology Relfection

Today we had technology at Tamaki College. We had graphics technology and our teacher is Mr Pineda.  We started making our Fruit Juice carton on mine it had a apple and my name of the product is Sports Candy. I named it sports candy because sports candy is fruit. I enjoyed my time in graphics and I learn a lot about designing.

Dance Fever

Dance Fever

Today Room 10 and I went down to our school hall to do Dance Fever. When we arrived there we were told to line up into three lines. We started off doing our hip-hop. Next we did our Samba and after that we did a simple hip-hop move called the barrel roll. Soon after we did another dance named the WALT.

Dance Fever

Dance Fever

Today at Dance Fever we learnt moves for hip-hop and samba. This week was our second session but we were . Our dance instructors told us to call them Lieutenant and Ms Rach. We learnt the hip-hop moves and samba moves really fast so we can catch up. In the samba we have to partner up with a girl. At the end we tried out this move called the helicopter. I really enjoyed today’s session.

Technology reflection

On Friday year 8 students from room 10 went to their technology class. Our current class is Graphic technologies. Our teacher is Mr Pineda. In this class we draw and do art.

Today in class our task was to create some sketches for our t-shirt print we were going to do next week. When class started, he did the roll call, then told us what we were going to do today. He handed us a piece of paper to do the sketches. He showed us what we had to do, and we got onto work. A blank piece of paper soon showed a intricate design. All we had to go next week was bring a shirt to get our design printed on. 

The bell rang and we were dismissed
