Makey Makey Term 3 Extension Reflection

Term 3 Extension Task! It gets harder and harder every Term. This was one of the hardest so far. Our Task was to use Makey Makey and code to make an instrument to play either the song Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, Happy birthday or a song that you know how to play. If you don’t know what Makey Makey is the information is on here. My group, Me and Ajani chose to play Happy Birthday. Ajani was playing the Piano and I was playing the Drums. First Ajani had to create a piano by using a cardboard box and had to cut little cardboard pieces to represent the tiles. And I used playdough container and put the playdough pieces on top and used pencils to represent the drum sticks.


The biggest challenge that we had was to try and put the drumming and mix it with the piano luckily we had Zoe there.  Ajani and I had a choice between a game show and musical  instruments so Ajani and I picked to do instruments. The thing we found most easier was getting to know the beats and keys to play our instruments, we started with the twinkle twinkle little star song but that didn’t work out so we tried Happy Birthday and it actually worked out. If you think you can take the challenge go try out the Makey Makey and see if you can make a band, here is the site go have a look and buy the kit.

Happy Niuean Language Week!!!

Moonu moonu moonu Tangaloa, Fakalofo lahi atu Today was the end of the first week of term 4.  As you know it is Niue language week and Pt.England where celebrating it with the Niuean group's item, Fun fact: did you know that there are only 14 villages in Niue, the surprising thing was that there were not only just Niuean kids there where a mixture of some Tongan, Maori and Samoan kids that just shows that you don't have too be Niue too celebrate the culture you just embrace it cause you can.
The Niue dancers outfits where outstanding, the boys looked like they where actually Niue warriors and on the other hand it was bright and colourful. It was probably the best Niuean performance ive seen if you Niuean just embrasure your culture

How to make a cheese toastie


Today I will be telling you how too make the best cheese and onion toasties.  First make sure you have every thing you need cause you don't want too be excited about making toasties and not have the ingredients, when you have all your ingredients the second thing you want too do is butter your bread but butter it the right amount not butter it so you get diabetes but just right so it taste delicious.  


Thirdly get the cheese that you think will make your toasties yum, So what is your favourite cheese? any way slice your cheese than place it on you perfectly buttered bread,  

then get one onion and some safety goggles if you cant handle the little onion, then peel your onions without crying then cut it into little peicies so you can get more flavour in your toasties then you wait for about 2 minuets and it should be looking like this 
 if you think i gave you some good steps leave a good comment and you could tell me how you make a cheese or a different type of toasties.

The start of term four!!!

Today was the first day of term 4 and it kicked off with a good start, Every time a new term starts all teams have to do an item about the big idea, the big idea for term four is MUSICAL MADNESS! It started with a song that was written by Mr Jacobson.  My favourite part about that song was the lyrics and Mr Somerville’s drumming it sounded like he played for one of those big rock bands. All the teachers outfits were really outstanding especially Mr Jacobson's,  After that we watched Mr Jacobson’s cousin from his Scottish half, their drumming was amazing.

The most entertaining item was team three's Item theirs was very funny and really entertaining, the other one i found entertaining was team four’s that was about songs make rides funner i personally think that's true, do you think you could be in a ride with no music? The one i found most informative was team ones because music really does have emotions because in music you can really express your feelings.  What i really want to find out is how can we make this term not all about music but about different things that can have something interesting but still have something to do with music. Here are some photos of the outfits some of the teachers wore.
