### Pacifica Group 2016

My Reflection
Last week it was the Pacifica groups presentation to show what we have learnt in Pacifica, we have learnt lots of moves since the beginning of the year.  I was in the Tongan group, our song is called Si'i lo lo.  I found it interesting to learn another culture.  It was hard to dance in front of everybody in the end because it was nervous to dance to the whole school, next time I need to dance in confidence in front of everybody.

### Our Solar System Inquiry Evidence T3

My Reflection
I am learning to identify the conditions on Earth and Saturn. I find it easy to identify Earth's conditions but I find it hard to identify the conditions from Saturn because I don't know what Saturn is like, I already know some conditions on Earth. My next step is to learn about other planet's conditions.

My Reflection

Yesterday we went to PolyFest to experience different cultures. There are stalls there which sells delicious island food and stalls that sells unique things from different islands. There are also a lot of performances from the High Schools Auckland and Primary Schools who has done some amazing performances. My favourite thing was the food that I spend my money on, I really like to spend my money in the stalls. I like thee game that we played using rakau. But the funniest thing that happened during a performance is that it rained really hard but I had a umbrella, others didn't have a umbrella so they stayed a while in the rain. I love this trip I am excited to go to PolyFest or another trip again.
