What I am Grateful for?

IALT:Respect something I am grateful for.
 Today there was no Kiwisport So we had to write something that we were grateful for.This topic actually got me to think very hard because there was lots things I am grateful for.I picked our 3 things that I was grateful for and the 3 things are My Parents/Family, Church and also Sport.Those 3 things I picked it for a reason.And that reason has been a big part of my life.While I was writing about this task I was using the S.E.E Structure to put my work in order.This has helped me to thank all the people has has helped me be able to choose these 3 things Something I have enjoyed through this experience is being able to write a lot about the 3 things I am grateful for.

 The part I found very challenging is choosing 3 things that are grateful because there are lots and lots of things i'm grateful for.My next steps for learning is to improve on my ideas because I think I have wrote lots but I don't know if they mean what i'm trying to say.

Technology(Flab Chab)

WALA:The new Food that we made
Throughout this experience it was very fun because I had a new partner for cooking and his name is Matthew.Today was 5th to last week of cooking.Today we made a Flab Chab, when I heard it I thought it was something to do with meat.But it wasn't, Miss Tuipulotu was explaining to us what is was and I heard no meat in their.While we were cooking I looked around and our group was going the fastest.It must be when we went up first to get our ingredients or t might be the other team are slow.When I looked over to my friends table they decided to use golden syrup and all the other table chose golden syrup but I wanted something new so I chose maple syrup.

As I was pouring it in I had a taste and when I tasted it, it became my new favorite flavour. When we were melting all our  Ingredients our consistency look different then everyone else one.Our one was more syrupy then buttery.Here is how you make it.

Matariki Stars in New Zealand

This week is known as Matariki and marks the beginning of the Maori New Year.
Matariki is the name of the Pleiades star cluster and the season of its first rising in late May or early June, which is taken as the beginning of the Maori new year.
Traditionally, it was a time for remembering the dead, and celebrating new life. In the 21st century, observing Matariki has become popular again. Heaven-bound kites, hot-air balloons and fireworks help mark the occasion.

My feelings about this article is happy because I've been learning lots about matariki. I felt happy that I get to learn more.The challenge for me today was trying to learn more and more about matariki.The part I like the most about this article is how many facts there was in it.

Kiwisport Reflection

WALT:Play basketball games to improve or dribbling.
Image result for nbaToday was our last day of Kiwi Sport and I was so upset because kiwisport was so fun.It gave lots and lots of memories to reflect on.When we got down our old teacher Hyrum was back and he was ready for teaching.It got cold so we did a warm up and it was to jog to the other end of the court and back.Then we got to choose a game and the first game we chose was golden child.After getting split into our groups the game begun and I was the first runner and I almost got out but I made it home.Then we made our group names the other group was called Cavaliers and our team was called the Tamaki. Throughout the game our team lost and we wanted revenge so we went hard on the next game.On our next game we played basketball and Our team was winning.While we were playing the next class came and I was so sad because this was our last lesson on basketball.

The challenge I found challenging throughout the lesson was trying to shoot.Because there was to much pressure which made me do a air ball.
The best part of the lesson today was being able to get some of my shots in and also having lots of fun.
The part I never liked was losing when we were playing golden child and also I don't like how it was our last day doing Kiwi Sport.
I feel so happy that I improved in my dribblings and also I felt sad its our last day.

Matariki Rap

WALA:The seven stars of matariki
Today I wrote a Rap with 2 of my friends.They're names are Tevita and Metui.This experience was easy for me because rhyming and flowing is kind of what I like to do.The challenge for me today was coming up with rhymes that relate to matariki.The part I found easy was saying it.Here is the rap my group came up with.
This is a rap about Matariki
A cluster of stars shining over Auckland city
It comes in either late may or june
Shining bright in the night just like a full moon

For many of the Maori it’s a new year
Light shining from the sky like a chandelier
Helping the crops grow for the people
Planting them is pretty easy and simple

They are way past mercury and mars
Metui is gonna tell you what they are
In Matariki there are seven of the stars
Shining brighter in the sky like lights from a car

It may be winter but we still celebrate
Waiting for the stars we just can not wait
Having a feast with so much to eat
Sit down relax and take a seat

Think about the stuff you're gonna learn
Let's go in a circle and wait for your turn
Tell us what you know about matariki

Here's a hint it's not only in Auckland city

Google hit with $3.7 billion fine

Internet giant Google has been fined a record €2.42 billion (NZ$3.7 billion) by the European Union after a seven-year investigation into allegations it was abusing its monopoly over internet searches.
The huge fine has been handed out over the company’s breaking of an EU competition law. Prosecutors argued that Google was using its dominant search engine force to promote its online shopping service ahead of others.
It now has 90 days to stop breaking the rules, or face further fines – which could cost billions more.
“What Google has done is illegal under EU antitrust rules. It denied other companies the chance to compete on the merits and to innovate,” EU Competition Commissioner Margrethe Vestager said.
“And most importantly, it denied European consumers a genuine choice of services and the full benefits of innovation.”
The fine is twice as much as the previous largest fine, which was handed down to Intel in 2009.
