P.E Post

Hi. It's Van again and today  am going to be sharing my P.E with so here we GO!.

So the topic I have picked is throwing and so lets do over arm throw first here is a Picture.
So run up and put your arm that you are not holding anything and with your other arm throw it like you are drawing half and pizza. You have to be confident doing it.


So this one we are doing jumping so here's a picture and explanation.

So same thing run and push you legs off the ground. Try jump as high as you can.


So the last one is running here is another picture.

So what you have to do is push your self and force you feet on the ground. Try your best. You need your determination muscle for this.


Thanks for reading my content.

Art post

So today I am going to be sharing my sketching art. Here we go!

So I have been working on this for long time and put in loads of effort and perseverance after when I finished I came up with this here is a picture and some detail about it.

Here is my sketching on the left it is a glue stick and on the left is tape. I worked really hard on this and it took me like 3 days and it was really fun and it was interesting learning it. I used my learning muscles for this and it was absorption and managing distractions. I learnt to be careful and do it very lightly and stay focused and do not get distracted.

Thank you for reading my content.

Literacy Post

Welcome back to my blog and I am going to be doing a literacy post here you GO!!

So am going to be sharing literacy

12th October 2016

I worked really hard on this and put a lot of my time into it. I liked doing it and I used my perseverance and absorption muscles 

Back on Monday Night Raw Brock Lesnar VS VanTheMan payperview Main Event so ding ding ding the bell goes Brock Lesnar get’s first hits on VanTheMan and knocks him to the hard ring floor and VanTheMan gets up and clotheslines Brock lesnar and he’s down. VanTheMan get’s a chair and smacks Brock lesnar goes down shattered by a chair. VanTheMan gets him in a headlock and brock lesnar reverses it and gets VanTheMan.

VanTheMan is out and seems to be really injured but he gets up and gets brock lesnar into a headlock and slides like a snail all the way out of the ring. He go get’s a steel chair and smacks brock lesnar down once again VanTheMan is in a very good possession VanTheMan slides back out of the ring and gets a ladder. He climbs up and gets pulled down by brock lesnar and now the tables have turned!!.

Brock lesnar rucks VanTheMan over and gets advantage of VanTheMan so now VanTheMan is down so now it’s Brock lesnar’s turn to climb the ladder. Brock lesnar gets up with no distractions at all and Brock lesnar gets up to the top of the ladder and dive’s like a bird but VanTheMan rolls like a dog being controled. Brock lesnar is down he look like he’s in a bad possession now VanTheMan gets the ladder and smashes Brock Lesnar.

So VanTheMan pins Brock Lesnar with his muscles and agility also pulls his leg up for an oppurtunity to win the match and the refferee count ‘s one two three ding ding ding VanTheMan Has won the match for the first time against Brock Lesnar and VanTheMan gets his hand raised up and there was a match the commentator said Brock Lesnar can’t believe neither can the fans believe it and VanTheMan has won the match once and forall VanTheMan has done the impossible The End.

Thank You For Reading my content THANKS!. 


Maths Blog Post

So what I have chosen is my strategy that I did with Mrs Love. She wrote down some questions and we had to find out what would the times would be. Here's an example. Van had 12 jelly beans and you have to spread each jellybean into each pizza slice and make it even. It would be 3x4=12 and I will show you a sheet of some. Here it is .

PBL Post

Hi and welcome back to my blog and today I am going to be sharing my PBL today so I hope you enjoy.

So first I am going to be showing my reflection. So here it is.
I worked very hard on it and used my perseverance muscle. I took me a while but I got there at the end a stuck in there. I liked doing my project because it is interesting and I learnt new stuff about my topic and what I do not know. It was fun working with Tyler and other people it was really fun and I learnt knew football players statistics it was really Interesting.

I hope you enjoy my content and my blog post I will try comment back on your blog.

Project Topic: Imovie/Football
Photo/Screenshot of Project (insert below)

Finish these starters:
  • Something I enjoyed about my project was learning players statistics          because it is something different and interesting to learn about football players  

  • The most challenging thing about my project was getting the set up ready and getting the things we planned to work out because we did not have an idea before we started and we did not have the materials that we wanted.  

  • The main skill I got better at was holding the camera straight and getting the film 100% quality. I got better at it by focusing and getting tips by my friends near by.

  • Something interesting I learnt was the players statistics and what position they are in.                         
  • What I would most like to change about my project is to add in some cool skills and to have there finisher in a goal opportunity.

  • I would like to do my next PBL about is a football stadium made by paint and cardboard because it will be really interesting and fun to do.

Choose three learning muscles and explain how you used them during your PBL.
Perseverance because I kept on trying and even tho we kept on failing
Noticing i noticed lots of things and one of them were that I was not recording but I noticed it right after we started
Managing distractions I managed my distractions in my time when people were calling us not far away but I ignored them
Create a Description of Your Project
This needs to have either video or audio. You can use any app you like. Include a link here. You will embed it as part of your Reflection PBL Blog Post. Video

Then at the counter we waited for a long time and the lady came up to us and said whats your McDonald's number we answered back 57. Then she replied sorry you had pay at the counter. Finally we paid and got our meal I ate my big mac in under 7 minutes & my fries. We only had 10 more minutes left to get to the Movies. We went & watched the new ghost busters Movie it mad me jump and it scared me when the screen turned on and the noise went. Once we finished we went to ocean spa with my cousins Arcadia & Tuhiwhai. It was really fun I saw one of my Football team mates called Caleb he is our striker for the Team. Dad keeped on flying me off his shoulders into the pool again and again. When we were finished we got changed and dropped them off & then we finally we Home and relaxed.

Passion Project blog post

In the past few months, Rimu Hub has been doing a thing called a passion project. It is when we do something and find a trick, like I did soccer and I had to do 5 tricks/skills because that was my passion. But sadly, I only got 4 done and all of us were in a different groups with different teachers Mrs Love had sports, Mrs Carr had making different stuff and Mr M had writing stuff. It was a lot of fun even though I did not get it finished. It was fun because I kept on making mistakes which is a good thing to do because it makes you learn more learning and it makes it more funner.

Describe your passion project. What was your learning in it? What were you trying to produce) I was trying to make 5 slides of fancy soccer tricks. My learning was learning new tricks off the internet

How far did you get with your passion project) What would have helped you to get further) i only needed one more slide then i would of been done but i needed to manage my distraction more and get more absorbed

What was the most challenging part of your passion project) My slides because it took up most of my time in my passion project

What was surprising about your passion project) That i did not get it finished and that it was really hard to get finished.

Did you follow your plan well? Why or why not) in the middle because i was distracted a lot and i did not move away from them.

Which learning muscles did you use the most while you were working on your passion project? How did you use each one) absorption and perseverance because i was mostly absorbed  i was into my learning and kept trying when it was hard to explain the instructions

Which learning muscles did you find difficult to stretch during passion project time) Managing distractions because i was always distracted and was being one.  

Include a picture/embedded link to your passion project

If you were allowed to pick a new passion project, what would you choose and why) Cricket because i like cricket and it is one of my favourite sports in the world

What was your favourite part of passion projects) Getting to go outside and do some sporty stuff and getting to make videos of them

Hope you enjoy. I will try to comment on your blog ASAP!!

My Best Learning

This is my Best learning

I am proud of this because i put all my effort and punctuation in to it

My biggest challenge was getting it to make sense

Here it is

Free Choice Writing
Persuade, Entertain or Inform?
I am learning to communicate my ideas effectively to the reader.
You choose the topic and you choose the writing purpose. This needs to be your best independent writing for assessment. Below is the success criteria for quality writing. Use this criteria and go for it!h

Success Criteria (Sentence formation has been our main focus)
Content & Ideas
Include a range of ideas with clear details.
Sentence Formation
  • Include simple, compound and complex sentences
  • Start most of my sentences with different words
Choose words and language features to meet my purpose.
Clear beginning, middle and end with paragraphs.
My best spelling with good attempts at words I don’t know.
Use all basic punctuation (capital letters, full stops, question marks and exclamation marks) correctly and attempt some complex punctuation.

Horror Story
As me Nehemiah Bradley where watching tv all by are self and the windows were open as soon as the best part of the show was ready the tv broke and the lights went out. We heard a blood splat on the window all of us were wondered. It was JEFF THE KILLER, IT THE CLOWN, JASON, FREDDY, DOINK THE CLOWN, KILLER CLOWN, The one and only the master of history life the BOOGIE MAN, and FRANKENSTEIN. As they knocked down the door and started chasing us it turned into a war of the agents!. Me nehemiah bradley got a rocket launcher, sniper, knife and eggs and we grabbed some tables for a hut. I threw some eggs and shot some snipers and stabbed some killers we were winning. We only have jeff the killer and killer clown left. Bradley stabbed killer clown and nehemiah shot a sniper and killed jeff the killer. We had won the war. Then at 10:00 we went out and had BK and then when we went home we jumped in our beds all bloody then we had dreams about monsters and BK.

And That's what happened

My best learning 2

Hope you enjoy my best learning blog post!! :)

This term Rimu hub have been learning lots including about rubbish, maths, writing and more. All of the hub had to choose what was their best learning this term. My best learning of the term is my Writing Task because I really liked doing it. It is super fun!! I want to work hard!! :)

Here is my writing:
When I woke up I was freezing ice cold. I was starving so I took a peek into the cold frozen ice fridge. There was

nothing there!. My tummy was rumbling, so I dove into the driver's seat and pushed on the peddle and twisted the key around.

Finally I got there the BK order person said no more BK chicken burgers sold! Soon I heard a hollow loud scary echo. Suddenly the wall smashed and I dived into the car and out of nowhere smash a massive BK chicken burger started chasing me but I had and an idea.

As soon as I reach the closest hose I can make it soggy and it will die!! As I travel for hours, I finally see a hose and get the grip on it and I squirted water for 2 minutes and it finally died!!. On the ground there was one soggy wet burger so I chomped it up.

Dear James,

Thank you James for taking your work time off and spending time with us. You're a very funny and  helpful guy, you're a very cool parent to hang out with. Thank you for coming to camp and I’m not naughty haha. It must be hard to take time away from your family. Also thank you for giving us a ride and thank you for cooking for us you're a super parent to us.  

My favorite part was roasting marshmallows I got a golden marshmallow it was really awesome because I’ve never tried roasting marshmallow’s before and it was one of my goals to get a golden marshmallow. Plus I was doing it with Charlie and Dom.

You’re a crack up. Thank you for being by our side and giving us lots of confidence and encouragement. I hope that your on holiday right now. You must be tired of going to camp and helping, cooking and driving kids. You put a big smile on my face. My favorite part was going to the Onekawa pool’s it was really mind blowing Awesomeness.

Many Thanks
Yours Sincerely Van McCourt

Hockey Guide

Hello this  is my hockey guide I'm posting this because I love learning on the computer and doing blog posts. I learnt to do the Indian dribble and juggling and more other cool stuff. My biggest   challenge was juggling it was really hard and the fun part was the games we played were seaweed, capture the flag and other cool games.  I was really puffed out. Hockey is a really fun sport and it's very hardcore stuff.

Do you like Hockey?
