My learning journey in Term 1 in Kia manawanui Syndicate

Dear Suave,
This is my learning journey for this year. This year I have enjoyed to technology
because we can make different kind of things like shapes.
I also enjoyed the sleepover because I like the movie and communicating with my pears.

I like working in Kia manawanui syndicate because the teachers and my friends around
me makes me feel safe. Kia manawanui is a safe place to work in because we can make
connection with each other and communicate with others around us.
This term we had to show the school values consistently in class and out, For an example
If someone gets hurt you can go over to them and help them up. I have showed
whanaungatanga by communicating with others and learning with them.
The second value I showed was Ako by learning, sharing and listening to people.

I also enjoyed making our goals in art by making hands, we had to put five goals
that we can achieve this year, here is two goals I have achieved this term.
This is my first goal sports I chose this goal because I need to work on my fitness
and running. My brother and my coach helped me to come to training every week.
I would like to work on a new goal for next term and its writing more complex
vocabulary in my writing because I never write lots of vocab.

I feel excited for term 2 because I want to learn more in writing and maths.
I am looking forward to doing more activities and going to a different group in technology.

Today is the last day of term 1, we had to write a reflection of our journey in term 1.

IALT:summarise the text I have read
There was  a chief called Te Rauparaha of the Ngati Toa. He had
many enemies. He left his tribe to find other fighters to help them.
He arrived at another chiefs village. They hid him from his enemies.
He hid in a potato pit. The enemies came but could not find him.
He had escaped! He went back to his people and told them of his
adventures. He told them about the footsteps coming,footsteps leaving,
coming out of the pit. They began to stomp their feet, opened their
eyes wide (pukana),Stuck out their tongues and began to Haka!
They taught the haka to many generations.
Ka mate! ka mate!,Ka ora! ka ora,Ka mate! ka mate,Ka ora !
ka ora,Tenei te tangata puhuruhuru,Nana nei itiki mai,
Whakawhiti te ra,Upane, ka upane,Whiti te ra!

IALT:summarise a story I have just read

This story is about Kuris.
They are the dogs that the Polynesian Voyagers came to Aotearoa with.
They were bought over because they were to help to voyagers survive. Dogs were great hunters.
Chiefs also  kept them as pets.
Kuri were small,long haired,pointed ears and a strong jawline.

Sometimes  the Kuri fur were used for cloaks.
After pakeha arrived in Aotearoa the kuri  started to disappear.
The farmers were shooting them on sight so they wouldn't kill the sheep.
Eventually the Kuri died out and the domestic dog took over.

This is a story of Kuris who came over to New Zealand 2000 years ago.
