Why does matter matter?

 Three basic properties are volume, mass, and shapes 


All matter is made up of tiny particles called atoms


Volume is the amount of space the matter takes up


Mass is the amount of matter an object has


Liquid takes the shape of their container  


Gasses do not have a definite shape or volume 


 Liquids do not have a definite shape but they do have a definite volume 


 Solids have a definite shape and volume 


A Ice and chair are examples  of solids 



Task Description: Today with our reliever we did a task called why does matter matter. We learned a lot of things by ready the piece of paper she handed us. After reading all the facts about matters we answered some questions which are up above. My answers are the ones highlighted in blue.

FiaFia Reflection

 Yesterday we had our Biannual Fiafia at Pt England school. Fiafia is when our whole school and our families come to watch us preform and show our cultural dances. 

One of my highlights from last night was seeing all the families come and support all of the children there. I also loved how hyped it was last night with everyone supporting everyone. Seeing all the smiles reminded me of my first ever Fiafia at Pt England which gave me joy. 

My favorite group out of them all besides the Samoan group had to be our Tongan girls and boys. Everyone looked so beautiful on the night and I was so thankful that the weather held up for our special night. 

After it was all done I felt proud of my Samoan group because even if it wasn't perfect we all tried our hardest and pulled through for each other.
