This is my Knot tying video presentation.
We were learning about what types of knots Sailors use in an emergency.
Learn: In the video I learnt how to make a Estar Stopper Knot with some instructions from this Website.
Create: I created a Presentation to show my thinking and I created a video to explain how to make a Estar stopper knot.
Share: I am sharing this presentation with you and the whole wide world online. Mrs Burt has shared some of this at a conference in Australia which is really big and important.
This morning we were lucky enough to have OMGtech to come to our class. We had a hour of code which was really fun. In this photo I was playing Compose your music with Code DJ. The website we used was Code.org. Check out the website.

Talofa lava and welcome to my ambassador application. My name is Pisirina and I am 10 yrs old. I am full samoan and I am very proud of my culture and my family too.
My family is supportive,loving and kind. They are always there for me and will always be. I have 2 brothers and 3 sisters, my younger brother attends Pt england School as well. I am very thankful for all the people in my life.
At school, I love to learn,create and share because it increases my learning to a higher standard. Math is my favourite subject because learning a new strategy helps me answer difficult questions. During class, I am able to make my friends laugh and make a smile spread . I am eager to learn and discover more.
I have four extraordinary and unique best friends,that are important to me in my life.
I want to be an ambassador because I am confident toward others and I am a great leader when it comes to leadership. I know that I can use my key competencies when I am hyped or not focused and that I love interact with others by having conversations.
My teacher tells me that I am a kind and respectful person. Also that I am a person that has empathy towards others and that I can be a good friend to them too.

Walking outside of the classroom, I lined up with my classmates and my teacher as well. It was pretty windy at the time so my legs were freezing, “Luckily I have my Jersey with me” I said. We all strolled to the middle of the field but we couldn’t sit down because It was kind of wet.
We formed a circle while people were chattering but I’m pretty sure that it was just me talking. Anyways, Miss West introduced us to the game which was kind of confusing at first, but then I got the hang of it. Miss West told us that there was going to be this one person acting out a sport. Then Miss West said “ freeze “ then they froze. Another person came along and tried to do another act to link it to what the other person was freezing as. So it kept on repeating, however when there a was two people in the “Theater” once you say freeze the person that was there first will have to swap out with a different person.
Enough of that let’s talk about what happened. Levonah was the first person and she froze in a position like she was about do the the Single Ladies dance which was hilarious. My favourite moment was when Amira froze and Jedida came along and pretend to lift some weights. The whole class laughed and became really energetic.
We all played another game which was really funny. We had to create a moment and pretend that we were in a photo then someone from another team had to explain what they were doing. Zaeeda,Amira and Ayvah freezed/acted out a robbery. Ayvah was the bank person, Zaeeda was the police and Amira was the robber. Amira was running away,Zaeeda was chasing after her and Ayvah had her hands over her mouth. My answer was that they were playing hide and seek but Ayvah was peeking so she was cheating.
I had heaps of fun and I think the whole class had fun as well. I would definitely do this again but not on a day when it is windy. What I learned is that you can make someone laugh without using words and if you can’t then they have no sense of humor or you’re not trying hard enough.
