Immersion Assembly Recount - Kyron

Welcome Bloggers to my immersion assembly post!. Our theme for this term is "Musical Madness. Today is the first day of Term 4! The 16th of October! Yes the holidays are over :( but lets start.

Musical Madness Saves the day:

Mr Burt, Mr Jacobsen and Mrs Nua, Mr Sommerville, Mr Wiseman created a song for the school called Musical Madness saves the day, Mr Burt and Mrs Nua sang and Mr J used a trumpet. Mr Sommerville was playing the drums he was amazing!, Mr Wiseman had the bass guitar! Mr J and Mr Sommerville’s outfits were funny they had t-shirts with a fake muscle graphic on it.

(Team Performances)
Team 1 had an enthusiastic performance. The teachers sat on the stage and had play cards to play with! They were playing the card game “Snap” and they reacted in many ways. They would listen to music while playing the game and see their reaction of how they would act when the music changes.

Team 2 Had a great musical performance, Ms Gaston pulled out her ukulele and sat down by the microphone and started playing one of the Lion Kings theme songs named "In the jungle" and started singing as well. Then the other team 2 teachers came out with other instruments and all started playing the instruments and started singing way faster!.

Team 3 had a very cool movie! It was very entertaining! They had a movie named “MTV” where they lip sync popular songs and compare it to their emotions they are feeling present. For example if they wanted to eat a sandwich they would sing a verse from a song that had the saying “I want a sandwich”

Team 4 had an awesome movie as well! They had a movie such as a “Carpool Karaoke” where they sing songs in the car and record themselves singing! It was really funny! Also they had instruments in the car too!

Team 5 - (Our team) had a really cool performance! They simply had Mr Wiseman and Ms Tapuke acting as parents! They were talking to Mrs Tele’a, Miss Ilaoa and Whaea Kelly like they were their kids! They were watching a short clip from the “Lion King” and reacted with different songs and emotions like Team 1 did!

Thanks For Reading!

My thoughts on class speeches. - Kyron

 WALT - We are reviewing how to produce a quality blog post and comments.

I’m going to tell you my thoughts on one of our classmates speech. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to see the best speakers out in the street due to me not being there at the time.

Most Appealing to you? and why?
I think Amelia's speech was the most appealing, It was about her nana that passed away. Amelia always wondered why her nana was happy at a school always cleaning toilets and classrooms , Amelia would always go and help her nana after school. It wasn't because she liked her job it was because she loved seeing her grand kids. Now Amelia knew why she was always happy.

I chose Amelia's speech because I really thought that this was touching.

Which speech was the most entertaining? Most thought provoking?.
I found that Talita's speech was the most entertaining, She gave us some tips what to do when there's a powercut with your siblings. She said their always on their phone using their data which I think is true. She gave us the fist tip to light a candle then blow it out then light it again which was weird but she said its fun so I guess its "Fun?". Oh and the next tip was to save the ice-cream she said use the candle to find the ice-cream and eat it before it melts because the fridge has no power right?.

I chose this speech because I liked her confidence but it was also very funny! she kept laughing and laughing we all enjoyed the speech so thats why I picked this speech.
