What I learn at volleyball

Week one at Volleyball we learnt to serve the light Volleyball to our buddy.
We learnt how to serve the ball from a Coach name Coach Elnor.

When we serve the ball the wind blows it away.

Then we learnt how to share the light volleyball with our team mate.

Then we went into a circle and learnt how to do a ready position.

DMIC week 1

My group and I learned how to make 3 hours by using the minutes that was on the maths problem. What was most enjoying is working as a team with my group. What was challenging for me is explaining what we did to the class.

First Panmure Bridge

Middle school at Tamaki Primary went to the yacht club to view the site of the old swing bridge that was the first Panmure Bridge to be built.

The first Panmure Bridge was made in 1950.
The first bridge that was made in Panmure was made out of wood.
The first bridge which is the swing bridge was demolished because it was to old for the people to walk on or drive on.
Every farmers goes and crosses the Panmure bridge to go to Pakuranga to buy seeds for their plants.

The bridge that collapsed in America.

A long time ago  a lady was run over by a car so they built a foot bridge.
 It was connected to two buildings because they didn't want  anyone to get run over again.
 It only took six hours for the footbridge to be built.
When the bridge collapsed it landed on the cars that passed underneath.
It landed on 8 lanes and four people passed away.
A few people survived but they got seriously injured so people called the ambulance.

Waka Tapu by Jeff Evan

I listened and read this article.
In a nutshell I learnt...

  • in 2012 two Waka with people inside called Te Aurere and Ngahiraka Mai Tawhiti sailed to Rapanui. 
  • I also learnt that Gambier Islands is close to Rapanui.
  • when they were sailing It took ten months to go to Rapanui and go back.
  • During the journey the navigator yous his skills and knowledge to locate Rapanui Island.
  • The navigator used the sun and ocean swells and at night he used the stars to keep him on track.
  • The voyages was the dream of master Waka builder Hekenukumai.
