All About You... Teachers

This movie is all about teachers and why students appreciate us. They had to think about what they think teachers are important.

Mālō e lelei

This week is Tongan language week. Room 9 has been learning new Tongan phrases in class. 

Here is a phrase you could learn yourself: Ko e 'aho faka'ofo'ofa eni - Today is a good day.

Here is a picture of some Tongan students in Room 9 who dressed up to celebrate Tongan language week! You guys look great!

In Room 9, we have been learning about warm and cool colours. First students had to measure out a 2cm or 3cm grid on a blank piece of A4 paper using  rulers. Once they had their grid, a protractor was carefully used to form a circle. Then they drew a 'Y shape' in the circle and then a trunk below it.  They added branches to their Y and coloured it in black. They coloured the grid within the circle warm colours (red, yellow, orange). Outside of the circle, students used cool colours (green and blue). The green was used to create 'grass' and blue to create the 'sky' This was done in a checkered pattern using light and dark shades.

Room 9 had lots of fun during Science Intensive! They begun by learning about stage makeup and the science behind makeup by watching some exciting and interesting videos. They then got to create their own 'makeup' on a blank face to change the 'look' of the person. This involved researching what they wanted to draw, sketching their design on the face and then heading down to the art room to paint in the details!

My Awesome Self by Soane

Related imageTalofa lava, Malo lelei and Bula Vinaka. My name is Soane. I'm a year 5 and I’m Tongan.
My role model is Jason Taumalolo from the Tongan team from Nrl.  I have 8 cool brothers, 5 beautiful sisters and my lovely parents. My favourite movie is Rampage and Black Panther because in both of the movies it has my favourite movie actors, Dwayne Johnson and Chadwick Boseman.
I like to do sports and the best and awesome teacher I've had is Miss Smith. My favourite rugby team is the Warriors and the Hurricanes. When I get older I would like to work at McDonalds so I can make frozen coke for myself, my family and maybe my teacher , Miss Smith.  Thanks for reading and hope you learnt something about me.
