Kia Ora tama riki ma. Ko Mya Wallace Tuku ingoa. Hello everyone my name is Mya Wallace. Last week we had our Cultural evening. That is when everyone shows off there skills. We had Kapahaka, Pasifica and choir but not only those we had the finalist for photography and final winners for poetry. I was very nervous at first but I loved preforming. Then on Friday I got a postcard for "stretching her capitalising and perseverance learning muscles. and for participating in all the shows but 2. 1 I could not do and the other I cant sing good". 

My poem 
had a magic fish hook
with his foster brothers
paddled out to sea
in his waka. Hei!

took his magic fish hook
swung it round his head
threw it in the sea
said his karakia. Hei!

pulled his magic fish hook
tugged his magic fish hook
heaved his magic fish hook
Te ika nui, Hei!

Digi art

Hey guys welcome back to my blog. Today my blog is about my Digi art that I picked. you got to pick sketching, Painting or Digi art. For my Digi art I picked to make Darth Vader from shapes. It turned out awesome.

For more information here is a video of how I did it.

Essay writing

This is my writing this week we got to pick out of narrative retail and essay writing. I picked the essay. It was very challenging for me to writing. This is what I did to my personal best.

Compare and contrast essay- Mya Wallace
Even though African lions and domestic cats are living a long way away from each other, they still have a lot in common and some clear differences.

Both creatures are part of the cat family, also known as the Felidae family. The Felidae family have pretty large eyes and excellent vision. The vision is so good that they can even see in the dark.

Both of the animals smell from their mouth. They do it because they can smell something strong and maybe tasty. Then they get a better whiff by opening their mouth wider.

Domesticated Cats
The domestic cat's weight is 3.6 and 4.5kg. The height that they grow up to is 23 - 25cm that is smaller than a ruler.  Without the tail, their length is 46 cm.

Domestic cats must eat meat for their diet because they are carnivores. Most of the nutrients are found in the animals only, making a vegetarian diet impossible for the domestic cats and more kind of cats.
The male adult lions are about 1.2 meters. Adult Felines are 1.1 meters high. The weight of the male lions are 190 kg and the felions are 130kg in adults.

Lions hunt with the group they live in named prides. Then at night they go in a group and then stalk and prey until one of the lions is close enough to pounce. Lioness makeup most of the hunting groups and often trap prey with their strong jaws.

Nearly all wild lions live in sub-saharan africa. But the one small population of the asian lion they exist in india’s Gir forest. Asian and african lions are subspecies of the same species asian lions once prowled from the middle east to india.

Mainly lions are small cats. They have some similarities and different sort of things.

My buggie ride

My Aunty hired a Buggie for the blossom parade and she still had it on Sunday so we took it to the river to take it for a ride. It was so fun it is my second best day in the world. My mum, Dad, Aunty, Uncle, Jodie and Max had a turn. Now it is my turn. My mum took me. We had to wear helmets and seat belts. We went so fast and we all got wet and muddy. Then I went with my Uncle Mark we went one lap and then we came back and then my Aunty said "one more time so we can get it on record". So we did it like the first laps with skids and then we went throw a big puddle and when we came out there was a hole and we didn't see it and when we came out we fell off and did a little roll. My Uncle had to go to hospital because he cut his hand on something and he got stitches.

Hi welcome to my blog.
Today I am showing you my PBL reflection. PBL Stands for Project Bass Learning.
I did the Ancient Olympics. Here is my reflection I did.


Project Topic: olympic history

Photo/Screenshot of Project (insert below)

Finish these starters:
  • Something I enjoyed about my project was finding new information  because I did not know about them. And it is new learning.

  • The most challenging thing about my project was finding the correct answer    because I would find it but realise that is the wrong information.

  • The main skill I got better at was managing distractions.  I got better at it by when people would try to talk when the teacher talk I just ignored.

  • Something interesting I learnt was in the ancient olympics was that Women weren't allowed to do anything to do with the games.                        

  • What I would most like to change about my project is to a model  because then I can be more creative.

  • I would like to do my next PBL about golf and make a model about it.

Choose three learning muscles and explain how you used them during your PBL.
  1. Absorption because I finished my poster in a day and I wanted to do it again.
  2. Managing distractions when people were making or playing by me I would just still do the work.
  3. Empathy because Tyla had a quiet look at my poster and she had an idea what to do for her poster.

Create a Description of Your Project
This needs to have either video or audio. You can use any app you like. Include a link here. You will embed it as part of your Reflection PBL Blog Post.

My project is about the ancient Olympics. I put on medals but did you know that there were no medals, they used a Olive tree wreath.  I put on some fun facts about the ancient Olympics. Can you spot a wreath on my poster. That's right here it is. There is an ancient lady holding an Olympic torch.

I sort of followed it for what I was doing but I changed some of the words. .

My managing distractions because there were sewing machines going on. But I don’t think I used all of them.

Collaboration because there was no one to help me with it because I was the only one doing Te Reo.

My trip to Taupo

Hi guys welcome back from the holidays. This blog post is about my trip to Taupo, because in the holidays I went for a trip to Taupo with my aunty, cousins, uncle, mum, dad, my brother and 2 of my aunties friends. We all stayed in the 2 stories high bach. But we had seperate rooms. When we were there, my mum and Aunty with my cousin Kane, went to a shop and saw Liske but the other people and me went on a boat. My brother Max fell asleep on my Dad. It was so much fun.
When it was dinner the kids got McDonalds and the adults got an Indian dish and shared it with each other. My mum and aunt bought back a beanie with a dinosaur face with holes for the eyes and you put it over your face and Roar. My cousin Jodie got the same but an owl. My one is very special because I got a kiwi snow globe. After that we went to the bee hive and I got kiwi earrings

Say cheese.
