Healthy Eating Term

This term we have been learning about healthy eating.
For reading we read about healthy eating then we had to look for all the facts in the 
reading and then we had to write a persuasive text saying why parents should encourage
their children to eat healthier. 
Then we had Fui from Sport Northland Energizer Program talk to us about making healthy choices.

She talked about the four food groups which ones we should eat everyday and which ones 

to only have sometimes.
I have highlighted all the facts in the reading pick three facts and have a go at writing a persuasive
Text using the three facts and say what might happen if they don’t have a healthy diet.

Sum up the main argument



                                                                Main idea/Title
Healthy Eating

Introduction
Do you want your kids to be healthy?
Well turn your eyes and ears and listen to me.
The main point you want to make

Argument 1

In my opinion I think children should eat healthy because they can grow their bones, and their body’s will be nice and healthy.
Ok so i’m gonna tell you something, kids all around the world even here in New Zealand, there are kids that are obese and I will tell you why.
The reason why kids are getting obese is because parents aren’t being role models to their kids.



If your kids are eating junk food you can just eat an apple or any vegetable and when your kids see you eating healthy food you can give them
an apple or any vegetable and you will convince your child to eat healthy like you.
Another way your kids can start eating healthy is getting yummy fruits like, water melon, chopped apples and pineapples and then you can make
fresh smoothies for your kids.

Argument 2
I am sure that people in the world love to eat lollies as a everyday meal but in my opinion it is better if you and your child eat lollies once a week.
But kids will ask for treats once a while and it’s ok to say yes because it will be a treat for eating healthy everyday.

If you eat more healthy your skin, teeth, hair and nails will look nice and shiny.
Argument 3
I think Eating healthy will help you and your children to have more energy to play and hang out with your friends.
Eating healthy is important for you because you can grow your bones and you and your child will be nice and healthy.
Eating junk food will make you go slow, have less energy and you will become really lazy.


                                                 Conclusion
In conclusion i think eating healthy if better for our children in our community  and we will be safe and our skin, teeth, nails and hair will be healthy.
Do you agree with me?

Last Assembly for the year

Kia Ora koutou,

I can't believe how fast this year has gone.  We've come to our very last assembly and what a funny one it was.  My students have been focusing on making 'how to....' videos relating to their coding knowledge.  They're especially interested in this new craze called Dance Party.  We have also been preparing for our end of year celebration where they've decided to produce a dance.  It's honestly been a whirl wind of a year with so much happening, and we often forget to take the time to share with our family and friends what we've achieved and accomplished.



I couldn't be any prouder of my students.  They've grown so much.   They make reflections, give things ago, make mistakes and learn from those experiences.  Many of my students were too shy to even speak in front of a camera.  Too shy to perform in front of the class.  Now they are all more than capable of showcasing their learning to others - especially to an online platform such as blogger.

Nga mihi nui ki a koutou akomanga toru.

I am inspired from the success of others.

This week we have been aiming to develop and enhance the culture of our classroom.  We're empowered to change our mindsets.  Many have been inspired to learn from the success from others.  Some have discovered that making and correcting mistakes are proof that they are growing - particularly since their assessment results have started coming through for them to reflect upon.

Although one student in my class didn't quite reach their writing goal, they quickly discovered that their progress as a whole from the score they received at the beginning of the year to now is something that he should definitely be proud of.  Next year is a new year, where I can guarantee he will smash his writing goals.

The students in Room 3 have  also been developing their te reo knowledge and pronounciation.  We decided to create class posters with links to their mahi as a way of showcasing their work in one place.  Below you will find links to their work around translating English sentences into Te Reo.
Some students struggled, some students excelled, some students were ecstatic to complete the task and discover that they can learn anything they want to.

The great thing about the learning culture in this room is that they are inspired from the success of others.  They see it as a benchmark to aim for and in most cases surpass.
