PBS Market Day

On Wednesday Panmure Bridge school hosted their market day under the canopy for all the classes. Each class spent about a week to come up with their products and ideas, our class decided to make harakeke keyrings and jewelery. First, gathered ideas for our product and made prototypes, at first our idea didn’t work out so we tried again and came up with the idea of making beaded bracelets and rings. When we made our product we advertised the keyrings by putting them of our bags.

Then we set up our stall infront of the hall on the deck and displeyd all of our products to sell. Our stall was quite popular as it was filled with fun colours and glitter. After we finished out stall we helped set up some of the others. once they were completed all of the stalls were beaming with fun and exhadurated colours.

Finally some of us looked after the stall and sold the products. Our stall had a humongous crowd and sold everything that we had. I was the first person to look after the stall and help sell products, when I swapped with someone else I went and used my tokens to buy things I was given 5 tokens to buy things from stalls, I ened up buying a sunflower, christmas wrapping paper and a dream catcher. When it was done I was left with 3 tokens.

I found market day fun and filled with excitiment, I enjoyed creating the products to sell and helping look after the stall.

Diya Creating

LI: To follow the instructions to make your own origami diya (diva lamp).

The photo above shows my origami diya (diva lamp). Our first challenge was to watch the video that shows how to fold an origami diya (diva lamp). Before we could start we needed to use a ruler to measure a 20cm square piece of paper to make our own origami square. I found one of the parts to make the triangle  challenging because I didn’t undertsand the part much until I got it and it was easy.

I found this activity fun because I enjoy doing origami.

Celebrating Diwali

LI: To use your smart searching skills to find out what Diwali is and how people celebrate around the world.

Our challenge was to write create a DLO that tells others what Diwali is and how people celebrate around the world. Something I found interesting was the many reasons different religions celebrate Diwali because they all have very interesting stories.

I found this activity fun and interesting because I learnt about a cultural celebration and it was very fun to learn about.

Phares dans la Tempete, la Jument

LI: To use your smart searching skills to find the story behind this picture.

Our challenge was to write create a DLO that shows where this lighthouse is and what the story is behind the image. We found out that the Phares dans la Tempete, la Jument is a lighthouse in Ouessant the coastline of West France, Brittany.

I found this activity interesting because I reaserched about a famous lighthouse and the ctory behind the image.

Inchcape Rock

LI: To find and summarise the story behind the poem

No movement flows; the boat froze, sails and bottoms paused.

Silenced noise and signs, waves arise and slump bells enclosed.

Aberbrothok set down the bell, the storm and waves fell.

The rock had swept, the bell warned. Then raised danger

Sun cheered, joyful birds shrieked. Then came the lovable music.

The inchcape bell spotted a green mark as Ralph eyed.

Ralph mirthfully sang in sinister his insides laughed with evil.

Eyes focused on the bell, rowing to dispel Abbot’s label.

Heading towards inchcape rock, Ralph cuts the bell to plague.

Downturned the ringing bell, “the next person will be ensorcelled.”

Ralph sailed away scouring the seas heading towards Scotland’s shore.

Gazed upon the highs, the sunlight and breeze had last.

Rover takes his stand blinded by the dark gaze ahead.

Said ;”now we’re lost, how I wish the bell rang.”

The sound died, swells then striked the inchcape rock.

Ralph hath balded and cursed as waves and ships collided.

The ship sinking warned himself of cutting the inchcape bell

Our challenge was to unpack the story behind the 17 verses of the poem Inchcape Rock by Robert Southy. The part I found interesting was when sir Ralph crashed into the inchcape rock because he had cursed himself by cutting the bel of of the rock because he was jeleous of everyone praising Abbot.

I found this activity interesting because I unpacked a poem and I don’t get to really unpack poems most of the time.
