In science, I learned about the Layers of the earth, Plate Tectonics, Earthquakes, Volcanoes and lastly water cycle.
Layers of the earth: Labelling the layers and describing what it is:
Plate tectonics/ Plate boundaries: Labelling the plate boundaries that produce an earthquake.
Earthquakes: I learn about how the earthquake erupts and how it causes a lot of damage to the surface of the earth. Also, I came across new vocabularies such as seismometer, Richter scale and many more:
I learn about the different parts of a Volcano and what their role is:
Water cycle: Just going through the water cycle to see if I still remember how it forms and move from one place to another:

This is my Logo :)
F.T3 = F stands for my first name Falakika, T Stands for the first letter of my last name which is Tuakivakatau and lastly, 3 is just my favorite number!
The fist stands for NEVER GIVING UP. I choose the color orange and dark blue because they just blend well together.

Nathan and Oscar traveled to some of the Pacific islands such as Samoa, Cook Island, Vanuatu and Taiwan. They traveled these countries to unpack information that would lead them to where their ancestors might have come from.
They discovered that the Lapita pottery could be found underground in the countries of Tonga Fiji, Taiwan and Vanuatu. People who find and study the Lapita pottery are called archaeologists. Whilst learning about the Lapita pottery, they thought that the patterns on the pottery were similar to the Samoan patterns.
The Language and culture were very similar too! The basic phrases and words are similar between the Cook islands, Taiwanese and the Maori. What shocked me the most was the way the Taiwanese people were dancing, it was almost like a haka.
They were successful on their journey because they got to know more about their ancestors and where they migrated from. Most importantly, they learned about the background of all the beautiful islands that they have visited.

During my time at retreat I enjoyed doing the activities because I got to work with other people and have fun. Every activity included teamwork,creative thinking and sharing ideas. I enjoyed the presenting activity because my group worked collaboratively and that everyone was participating. Seeing the smile on yr 8’s faces made me so happy. Most importantly I learnt that not matter what I need to have faith in everything I do and to treat other the way I wanted to be treated.

First I learnt to unpack information by creating a diagram to show my understanding of that character.
