End Of Term 1

Ko Ngati Ruapani, Tuhoe, Te Atiawa, Nga Puhi me Ngati Porou nga Iwi

Ko Te Kuhatarewa, Waiwhetu me Ruataupare nga Marae

Ko Waikaretaheke, Waiwhetu me Waiapu nga Awa

Ko Mataatua,Tokomaru me Horouta nga Waka

Ko Panekiri, Pukeatua me Hikurangi nga Maunga

The term has gone well I’ve learned a lot so far and making progress in Math, Reading, Marae Tikanga and a lot more. Alongside Mr Kauone, Whaea Saph has been very helpful and is a good influence on the class. We have been busy in and out of class and there is always something to do. Intermediate is way different from primary because everyone is pushing you to achieve your best.

Ko te tumanako ka pai te haere o te wahanga e heke mai nei, na te mea kua tino ea i aku mahi i tenei wahanga, he wahanga tino pai ki ahau hoki. Tino pai tenei Kura ki ahau na te mea he maha nga hakinakina me nga karaehe matatau hoki. Tino pai nga karaehe (TECH) ki ahau engari ka ahua hoha ahau na te mea ka korero nga kaiako i nga wa katoa.

For the past weeks we have been preparing for the powhiri to welcome the rest of the school onto our Marae. We have been learning our kura pepeha as well as our own personal pepeha. We are also learning what the marae tukutuku panels and mural represent, their names and their meaning such as the history behind them. Finally, we’re practicing standing and talking in front of other people to gain confidence for the powhiri in the first week of term 2 we are meant to start welcoming other classes onto the marae so we have been practicing a lot. – Fanua

No Reira,

Welcome back to my blog! My learning is getting better. I now understand a whole lot more than I did before. Mr. Kauone has helped me achieve a lot and I hope I get even better. I did go through some challenges ( because Math isn’t my strong point.)

There was a big step from primary to intermediate. The work is harder but what I like about intermediate is that nothing is too easy or too hard ( for me anyway ). And you do everything yourself, you’re not having the teachers do everything for you.

In the marae, we have been preparing for the powhiri for the new students/ year sevens. We are memorizing all the marae tikanga because we have to know it for the powhiri and because we are the tangata whenua.

Kua Nui Tenei Tau! Ka kite ano! -Bonnie 😀

In the past weeks we have been learning our marae tikanga and the names of different areas and their meaning. It’s been good. Last week we were learning about the murals and Tukutuku panels and one of them is Tuhonohono, meaning the merge between the old Wainuiomata and Parkway Intermediate back in 2002. It’s my favorite tukutuku panel l like it.

3 More Terms To Go

Ko Ruahine Te Maunga

Ko Oroua Te Awa

Ko Tainui Te Waka

Ko Kauwhata Te Marae

Ko Cade Te Kahika toku Ingoa.”

Welcome back to my blog – Since a couple of weeks ago we have been practicing for the area powhiri. The powhiri is to welcome the new students to the marae and to officially welcome them to the school marae. We have been practicing our pepeha and how to say it correctly and to make sure I/we say it loud and proud. We say our pepeha to introduce ourselves to the people we are talking to and to get a sense of how to do It because it could be their turn next. As the weeks go on and we improve saying our pepeha it’s time to learn the Tukutuku panels, the Tukutuku panels are spread around the marae and they symbolize past events that happened and things that happen every year. We need to say these in which the order is in, there are 12 panels along the walls. Before we start talking and describing what the panels are about we have to introduce ourselves e.g “Ko Cade Ahau” for the people to know who we are before explaining. After that we walk around the marae and explain what is special about these panels and murals and their important history.

This term we have officially started our area Pangarau Workshops (Maths). This is where students from each class go in classes where they are suited and are in for their Math level. There are specific classes for each level for maths from highest to lowest. I’m in the top class (TKT) with other people I know. We have learned number patterns and numeracy. Mr. Kauone (workshop teacher) has been showing us ways to solve problems efficiently with new strategies he shows us. There are 3 workshops per week so there is enough time to learn everything he tells us.

At the end of every term we have our E.O.T.C. trips. E.O.T.C. is a thing where teachers reward students for work completion and good behavior. This term we are going to Point Howard but only if it’s fine. If not we will just have a fun free work day. E.O.T.C is by far one of my favorite events during the year.

Our class motto is “Work Smart, Play Hard, Love Life” If you work smart and play hard you’ll love your life. – Cade

“Ko Mangahaumia te Maunga

Ko Mangatu te Awa

Ko Mangatu te Marae

Ko Nga Ariki Kaiputahi te Iwi me te Hapu

Ko Rawiri Tamanui te Tangata

Ko Ramari Erina Peneha ahau”

The term has gone fast and it’s nearly over. I’ve learned a lot in one term more than I thought. We have been learning about our marae tukutuku panels, powhiri practice, growth mindset and a lot more. This term has been good because I’ve been learning about a lot of things. It is so fun lately, we’ve been doing P.E that was heaps of fun.

I taku timatanga ki tenei kura, he tino whakama ahau. I was shy to talk to all year 8’s but now I’m confident to talk to all year 8’s and in front of my class. My feelings have changed Mr. Kauone told us not to be shy and to be brave, so now I’m not shy or scared to say anything.

Sports. – I’m only playing one sport right now it is Netball. I’m not into any sports but my mum wants me to play sports so I will be at home doing nothing. So the sport that I decided to play is Netball. My whole family wants me to play Netball too and they rejoiced to say I’ll be good at it if I play it, so now I’m playing it.

Marae tikanga – Mo nga wiki e rua kua pahure kua akona matou i nga kaupapa e pa ana ki nga tukutuku ki roto i te marae. We have to memorise the names and their meaning of all the tukutuku panels and murals so that we can present it when we welcome all the other classes on to our school marae. – Ramari

Term 1 Almost Over

Ko Horota toku Waka

Ko Mangahaumi toku Maunga

Ko Waipaoa toku Awa

Ko Te Aitianga a Mahaki toku Iwi

Ko Amara ahau

Term 1 is so close to being over and in term 2 my class is going to be welcoming area 2 & 3 years 7 students to our school marae and I’m so excited to practice the powhiri I can’t wait.

At the end of the term, Mr. Kauone is going to take our class fishing at Point Howard wharf for our EOTC or if it’s raining we are going to stay at school and have a shared lunch and do no work and we are going to watch a movie. EOTC is a thing we do at the end of every term to reward the classes for good behavior and work completion.

And for maths I’m not behind because I love doing algebra because it is fun to do it, we have different pangarau workshops. Pangarau is maths but in English. For pangarau, we are doing fun things like solving patterns to where they belong. -Amara

For past few weeks, TKT has been learning the names and meaning of our marae kawa and our school pepeha with Ms Brown so that we are prepared to powhiri the other classes and teach them all about our school marae. Ms Brown will be choosing people to stand up and share their understanding and knowledge of the tukutuku patterns and murals for example. Some people haven’t got it yet so they need to practice more.

My teacher Mr. Kauone has very high expectations for me and my peers. Lately, I haven’t been sticking to them so to make sure I do, so, a goal for next term is to achieve my high standards in everything I do with my academics and behavior, and making sure I stay on track so that I don’t have to deal with the negative consequences.

This term has gone by pretty fast and I know that next term I will improve my academics and my behavior!!! I will not worry about getting into trouble because I’ll be focused on positive things in my school life.  -Malia

For Maths our topic is Algebra. I’m in Mr Kauone’s class for Area 1 Pangarau Workshops which is level four and five. I find level 4 work easy. When we do level 5 work I find it a bit more challenging.

For Marae Tikanga, we are learning the Tukutuku panels names and meanings. Some of them are Tuhonohono – The merger between Parkway and Wainuiomata Intermediate, Aramoana – Waves Of The Sea, Purapura Whetu – Thousands Of Stars,  Keke – Warriors Armpits, Roimata Toroa – Albatross Tears. When we do the Area Powhiri Mrs Brown will pick one of us to talk about the Tukutuku Panels and also learning about the murals.

For Technocraft currently I’m in Cooking. Ms Calcinai teaches us for Cooking. We usually add either fruits or Vegetables in our cooking to be healthier. So far we have made Vege – up macaroni and cheese, Scones, Pancakes and Kebabs. – Arimawha

↴↴↴ Maori tikanga

Comprehension strategies

Shared and guided reading

My progress

Math – OK let’s start with Math is something I struggled with for a long time but now I’m understanding how to do proper addition and subtraction strategies because I never got how to do it properly in primary and I am achieving a lot in my math work now.

Maori tikanga kei te ako tatou TKT nga tikanga o te marae me nga wahi o te marae me te pepeha o te marae me te  pepeha o te marae o TKT kei te parakatihi tatou katoa nga tukutuku panels me nga tikanga mo enei kei te ako hoki matou nga murels o te marae.

Shared reading we are all doing this in our own school Chromebook and in our book, the shared reading topic is making connections Like text to text, text to self and text to world. I learned how to make all types of connections to what I’m reading well kinda not properly but I’m on it.

Comprehension strategies, these are A-OK with me and I am doing well at it and I’ve made a lot of progress. I’m also learning more maths like additions and subtractions and algebra BUT I don’t like this because I really don’t like MATH as must as I like reading. I don’t read all the time but I don’t find myself as a master reader, yet!

My progress overall is going good and I’m doing really well in TKT. I feel really happy where I am now because I’m getting A’s and B’s in my learning activities. Now, I can’t wait until the holidays because I’ll have NO MORE WORK YAY! I’m done BYEEEEEEE! -Therese-Amour

Ko Terangianiwaniwa ahau

Talofa my name is Terangianiwaniwa and I’ll be talking about my end of term 1 blog. So far it has been a good term with the class and our teacher. But our work expectations are very high and our teacher is pushing us to be our best because we have got an EOTC trip

which will happen next week of course just to finish our term 1 so we can move on to term 2. So next term we have got our area powhiri which our class will welcome the other 2 area’s on to our school marae.

Kia ora ano I’m from Parihaka/Taranaki on my mum’s side and that’s where I was for the past 3 days because myself and my family had to do a dawn ceremony for our new marae at Inaha that has been there since my nan and my koro were still living here with us. On the day my whanau and myself had to wake up at 3:00 or 4:30 the latest so we can get ready and practice our haka powhiri for the dawn ceremony that we were doing but when we got there on the day of the dawn ceremony my mum told me and my siblings that it was her first time there because back in her days she was never allowed to go on the field because there was a tree shaped like a face but is has been chopped down because there was a huge lightning strike their at Inaha. So later after everything was done the whanau and myself went to this pub that has been there for ages it’s called Okaiawa but we call it Ok because it’s shorter instead of saying the whole name. So me and the whanau went to the pub and spent our last night there because we were coming back on Sunday morning between 9:30 or 10:00 the latest.

So thanks for reading and I’ll see you when we do our next blog. -Terangianiwaniwa

Next week we are going on EOTC trip we are going to Point Howard with a bbq but if it is raining we might be going to an indoor place or just staying in class and watching movies

In term two TKT are doing a powhiri for the other area’s on to the marae and probably some other year 8s that haven’t already been welcomed we haven’t had a practice yet but I’m pretty sure we will have one next week or definitely next term we have 3 girls doing karanga 2 boys doing whaikorero and the rest are doing a haka powhiri and waiata tautoko. – Tamati

Kia ora my name is Nicholas and I will be talking to you about how these last couple of weeks have been for me. These last few weeks we been doing kapa haka and its has been awesome, we are still working on some songs but I know the songs because I was here last year but there’s a new song that I need to work on a little but I know most of it.

For our topic inquiry we have been learning about different units. I’m in the group learning about Our Weird And Wonderful Bodies. In my unit my group and I have been working on a health program. The purpose for this is learning how to stay healthy or get fitter.

The other thing we are working on is what you will go through during puberty and what effects it will have on you through this time and after. It’s been fun working on the health programme we have been doing pretty good so far.

In class we have been working on Marae tikanga I know most of it but I still need to learn the murals I forgot them from last year. It’s been fun talking about the tukutuku panels I remember them from last year.

For Technocraft I have been in Fabrics, Computers and cooking. In Fabrics we made dream catchers out of two DVDs put together and then  we put some wool around it to stick together, And for computers we built Lego robots, and then we had to programme them to get the right lengths to get the closest we could get to the turns we had to do,For cooking we are making healthy foods like vegetable kebabs and scones/mini pizzas and It was good.

So that has been all thank you for reading and I will see you in my next blog. -Nicholas

Half of our class know the Murals and only like a few people don’t yet know the Tukutuku panels off by heart. In term 2 my class TKT will be doing a powhiri for all the areas and we’ll be teaching them about the Kawa and History of the Marae. During these last few weeks My class and Miss Brown will be going over The Marae Tikanga learning and understanding the Kawa and Tikanga for our School Marae so we can teach it to others.

For these past weeks we have been doing Pangarau (Maths) Numeracy and Algebra Workshops. For our Numeracy Maths my group, Pohutukawa have been learning Level 4 for an example we have to write out Subtraction and Addition in our books. For our Algebra workshops we all do it together as an area and I’m In TKT level ⅘, Our teacher is Mr Kauone, he has been showing us ways to solve problems faster with new Strategies. He has been teaching us Number patterns.  We have exactly 3 workshops every week. Sometimes we miss some workshops because we have something on in school.

At the end of every term we have an E.O.T.C  trip. E.O.T.C means Education Outside The Classroom. E.O.T.C is when your teacher takes you out to a special place. And is rewarding us for how much work we have done. This term we are going to Point Howard but were only going if the weather is fine which I hope it is. If not we will just have a fun free work day.  E.O.T.C is by far my favorite event.

Our class motto is “ Work Smart, Play hard – Love life!” If you work smart and get your work done you can also play hard and ending up loving life! – Natalia

Well this term has been really good,we had a lot of fun in TKT we played a lot of sports like multi-sport,Ki-o-Rahi,rugged rugby,basketball,longball and softball, my favourite game was softball and Ki – O – Rahi, my favourite sport we played was Ki – O -Rahi I really enjoyed this game mainly because I was one of the Ki – O –  Ma, which is the person who guards the target in the middle. My second favorite was softball, I actually might play softball for the school if there is a team,I don’t like multi-sport or Rugged Rugby, I used to play rugby for Wainui when I was five, six and seven and now I’m eleven, even then I hated it but my dad loved it when I played Rugby for Wainui and I didn’t want to disappoint him,Only when I was little i liked to play it and multi-sport was just boring because we had to run and touch the other wall and get the ball or equipment before the other team and since it’s called multi-sport there were just multiple sports and only some of the sports I liked in that particular game.

This term was cool, meeting my new teacher for this year and possibly next year as well, making new friends in my class and in other classes and areas like Jackson,I think he’s from room thirteen or twelve,he’s cool, me,Chance and Flynn are all in different blocks so we don’t get in trouble with the school and also I’m getting a fat bike if I’m good for the whole year. – Trae

The term has gone fast and it’s nearly over. I’ve learned a lot in one term more than I thought. We have been learning about our marae tukutuku panels, powhiri practice, growth mindset and a lot more. This term has been good because I’ve been learning about a lot of things. It is so fun lately, we’ve been doing P.E that was heaps of fun.

I taku timatanga ki tenei kura, he tino whakama ahau. I was shy to talk to all the year 8’s but now I’m confident to talk to all the year 8’s and in front of my class. My feelings have changed Mr Kauone told us not to be shy and to be brave, so now I’m not shy or scared to say anything.

Sports – I’m only playing one sport right now it is Netball. I’m not into any sports but my mum wants me to play sports so I won’t be at home doing anything. So the sport that I decided to play is Netball. My whole family want me to play Netball too and they rejoiced saying I’ll be good at it if I play it, so now I’m playing it.

Marae tikanga – Mo nga wiki e rua kua pahure kua akona matou i nga kaupapa e pa ana ki nga tukutuku ki roto i te marae. We have to memorise the names and their meaning of all the tukutuku panels and murals so that we can present it when we welcome all the other classes on to our school marae. -Ramari
