Statistical Investigation

Today in room 3 we are doing a Statistical investigation about the students in my class. We had to get into groups of two and ask a question like what is your favourite ice cream to the students. Then we make a bar graph on our maths books and took a photo to put it on our slides. After that to finish it off we made a conclusion of what we learnt.

Trading Partnerships

Pakeha and Maori  were  trading together. Maori were trading timber for ships  , and also flax to make  rope    for ships. Maori were also trading a lot of pork and potatoes  to whalers and sailors to eat.  Things were positive so Maori and Pakeha wanted to protect their business.

Future Aspirations

    Today team 5 had special guests that used to come to pt england and they visited us to talk about what we want to be in the future. Our guests’ names were Tyron Tangatamakiri, Haare Kutia, Tanielu tele’a, Shaniah Mccarry, Tia peletia and David clark.


 Tyron Tangata-Makiri is the key speaker, meaning he was introducing himself and what he does for his job and why he started his business. He showed us photos of him, his family, work friends, and his old house in Glen innes. 1 thing that i liked what Tyron said to us was that It’s better to be an alien than a sheep. And he explained that the sheep means it is a follower and it follows the crowd and the alien is lonely it means to not be a follower and concentrate on yourself. 


Haare Kutia said 1 thing that was good: She said your past doesn’t define your future. Meaning whatever happened in the past doesn’t mean it doesn’t affect your future.


Tanielu Tele’a said Never give up meaning if you struggle with something and you keep failing every time keep going and going until you make it. 


Shaniah Mccarry and Tia Peletia said don’t let anything stop you, meaning if you do something you want and someone tells you that you can’t do it ignore them and keep going and do not listen to all the hate that people say about you. 


David Clarke said surround yourself with good people meaning to not hang around with bad people that do bad stuff and hang around with good people so that when you have good friends you can make good choices.  


I am so happy that these special guests came because they were so helpful and their words were so meaningful to me. Hopefully they come again next year and So i can remember these amazing quotes that they said until I grow older and older. 🙂
