Earths natural resources

Waking up and I’ve just realised there’s no natural resources anywhere. What is a natural resource? A natural resource could be water, sun, oxygen, soil and food. Why is a natural resource important. Well it is  important because it keeps us alive.


Plants are important because they produce healthy food. The food that they can produce are vegetables and fruit. Also plants help us to breath. Water is important to us because it keeps us hydrated. Water can be found in rocks, lakes, soil and rivers. We depend on freshwater because we can’t drink saltwater.  

The sun helps plants to grow their vegetables and fruit. The sun is important to us because we orbit around the sun. When where closer to the sun it gets warmer and when where further away from it we get colder. It takes 1 year for us to orbit around the sun.

All the natural resources I have been talking about was plants, water and the sun. If we didn’t have these resources we wouldn’t be able to have food. We also wouldn’t be hydrated and we would be starving.

Paideia Seminar

Last Term we had our Paideia Seminar. We had to get into pairs and then talk about a perspective. Me, Amelia, Pisirina and Jahzara were in a group.

We chose the perspective of schools. This is what we had to think about. Schools - what will schools do? How will the day be different to what it is now? Or will it? What will be the advantages/disadvantages of not coming to school? Will we have to come to a building called school in the future? What would we miss out on or gain?

When we got in the tusitala it was all set up with our names in front of our desk. Then we started. My group started the polite argument off first.

Myself and Amelia said being at school is more easier than getting home schooled or learning online. If you are home schooled you won’t be able to communicate with other people face to face and you won’t be able to play with your friends. If you don’t go to school you will also miss out on the really cool things happening and playing sport.

Then after talking and arguing politely Mrs Lagitupu told us what we had to talk about. She said “ this is what you have to speak about stop telling us to switch off our devices we are a digital tribe now. As soon as she finished talking I said well I mean sometimes you can go on your devices but you also should go play outside with other people. Also people are stuck on new games and youtube because they get there new trends from the internet.

At the end of the seminar we had to say one thing that we’ve learnt. My one thing I had learnt was that I can speak more. The one thing I can work on is preparing for the Seminar.

Rainbows end

On the 15th of July me, my family and my friends went to rainbows end to celebrate my birthday. It wasn't my real birthday it was just my party. Any ways my friends that were with me were Pisirina, Jahzara and Marika.

When we got to rainbows end we were the first ones there so we quickly ran to the gates. My siblings came with my dad, and myself and my friends went with my mum. We were waiting at the gates and we saw Rai and Bow. Rai and Bow are the two Rainbows end people.

Finally we got inside Rainbows end and we ran to the Log flume. The Log flume is a water ride where you go in small logs. The logs take you to a magical land and at the end you go down this big waterfall.

After that ride we went on the Gold rush. The Gold rush is where you go in mini miner carts under ground. You will see fake people holding gold and digging for gold. When you come up from the under ground you see all the people who are on the Log flume.

We went on many more rides like the Pirate ship, Invader, Corkscrew coaster, Motion master, Fear fall, AA drivers town and Bumper boats. It was 4:50 and the rides were closing down because the theme park closes at 5:00 pm and opens at 10:00 we got there at 9:30. Myself, Jahzara and Marika went on the last ride that was opened the Invader.

We got off the Invader and ran to my parents. We dropped everybody home and I got home at 8:40 pm.

Bonus activity day 4

Hi everyone it's Levonah and this is my bonus activity for day 4. Let's begin.

On the site it said to write about if you think fishing should be banned from farewell spit.

I think fishing should be banned from farewell spit because when the hectors dolphins get stuck they won't know what to do. The hectors dolphins will also be scared and try to call for help from the other dolphins but there to small so the fisherman will just keep catching them.

That was my writing about if fisherman should fish at farewell spit.

That was my blog post for today. I hope you enjoyed it. Bye.

Holiday writing

Today I was not at my house because I was with my nana, aunty Rochelle and my brother Mitchell. Last night I was watching the All blacks vs Lions game. The score was 15 all but before that I was at the Matariki light trail.

It was so cool I saw Brooklyn, Tehilla, Mamare and Heather there. I waited until 9:00pm to see the fireworks. Everybody counted down from 10 and then we saw all the fireworks.

The fireworks were so loud and bright so they played we know the way and wairua. It was so fun. After the fireworks I went back to my house and it was 10:30pm.

My nana decided to come over and she asked me if I wanted to go to her house so I did. My aunties and uncles were all working at the game. Me, my nana and my brother went to go pick up my aunty Rochelle from the game and by the time we got to my nana's house it was already midnight.

When I woke up it was 6:30am and we were getting ready to go to the doctors. We left my nana’s house at 8:00am and by the time we got to the doctors a lot of people were waiting because there was only one doctor.
So we had to come back later.

We were starving so we went to eat at Hollywood cafe for breakfast. After all that food we went to church, church took 2 hours and when we left it was 1:30pm. My nana dropped me off home but my brother is still with her.

Today was a great start to the holidays, even though it was a really wet morning but it started to get sunny. Today Me and my family went to henderson for my mums appointment. Except for my brother Mitchell because he is at my nana's house.

We arrived at my mums appointment and I didn’t know what it was for but her appointment took one hour. After that one hour we were driving in the car and my younger sister Leonora said “mum can we go to burger king” and my mum said “ oh but why” she said” because I want to get the churros deluxe” so guess what my mum said “ ok we can go and get your churros. Myself and my sister madi said “oh mum why does she get churros she's always spoiled ” my mum said “ we are all getting some”.

We just ordered the food at burger king so while we were waiting me and my sisters were playing hand games. Finally our food arrived because we were starving so my dad and mum had their burgers and we had our churros. It was so yummy.After that we came home and just watched movies.

Writing a Narrative

There once was a little girl called Hannah,she lived on a small farm with her mum,dad and brother Harry. Hannah and Harry always played outside with the animals but as soon as Hannah saw a chicken or a rooster she would scream so loud that her parents could here her from inside. Hannah ran inside screaming so loud, her brother Harry brang a chicken inside and Hannah shouted “a chicken”.

Her parents said Hannah why are you scared of the chickens and Hannah said “there just so scary” “but they're not scary why don’t you come outside with us and pat one” said her parents ok said Hannah “but I’m holding onto dad”. When they went outside as soon as Hannah saw the chickens she ran for her live. So after that day they had to get rid of the chickens and Hannah never saw a chicken again.

Hannah was so spoiled that she asked for a puppy and guess what her parents said “yes Hannah you can have a dog”. Hannah was outside playing with her dog buddy and Hannah chucked the ball really far so buddy went to chase it. But Hannah was waiting for buddy to come back but he never came so Hannah ran to tell her parents and they searched all night for him.


The next day her parents said is there a puppy called buddy there and they checked his name and they said yes would you like to pick him up said the lady her parents said yes but they didn’t know that it was gonna cost money.
When they went to the animal control Hannah was so happy to see buddy but when they were about to leave the lady said you have to pay $100. Hannah's parents said why the lady said because we had to look after him and Hannah was feeling even sader.

So her parents said we got $50 so can we pay the rest of tommorow. The lady was thinking about it because you can’t give half the money and pay the rest off so the lady said ok but just this once. Hannah was so relieved thank you they all said so the next day they paid the rest of the money and they lived happily ever after.

Animation


This is my animation about how technology has changed over time.
Hope you enjoy!!!

Production Reflection

If you could do the production again, what would you change or add and why?
Well if I could do the production again I would want everyone to have their own part in the play and let everyone add something to the script. Overall I loved that everyone was happy and had a good time. The hard part for me was at the end because I was one of the presenters. I had to memorize my part because Eden left so Mrs Sinclair had to make a last minute change and asked me If I wanted to do Edens part and I said yes. The reason why it was hard was because I had a script to bring on stage but I lost it while I was getting changed so I had to go on stage and memorize it but lucky before I said anything Bethan ran on stage to give the script to me. Next time I could project my voice so the people at the back could here me. I was feeling scared but at the same time I was excited. The bit I loved the most in the production was the Tongan scene because everyone was smiling and so happy.

Animation Voice over

The topic I have chosen is sailing. Back in the day when maori were alive they did not have big giant boats and cruises like we have now they had waka.
Waka is a boat carved from either tree or wood.

Maori people would call the small boat waka but pakea would call it canoe.
Well boats and cruises are so giant that they can hold millions of people. If you wanted to go on one of the boats it would be super expensive.


The materials the boats would need would be heavy metal, carbon fibre and many more heavy materials.
Well back in the day they had to use their hands to make things but now in our days we use factories. Back in the day they would take around one month to make their own waka but if we make one it would be ready in one day.

What has happened to Miss West

Well I know what has happened to Miss West. Well she is sick of coming to school and teaching that she took a day off and called in sick. Well she actually is out shopping with a few of her friends who are teachers from other schools that called in sick but they’re (not).

I can imagine what they’re doing right now. Going to get a coffee, eating somewhere nice, shopping at the mall, going on the Disney Cruise, spending all her money$$$, flying to America on her private jet, driving her new lamborghini and drinking Unicorn Frappuccino at starbucks with her friends. Then off to Disneyland with Mickey and Minnie mouse, coming back from her cousin's wedding (well she really is) at all the amusement parks she can imagine. Meeting celebrities, scabbing money$$$ off her mum, because she doesn't have any. She is probably having the best day of her life. I mean I would want to do that but not the bit where she is scabbing money$$$ off her mum because obviously my mum wouldn’t give me money. She’s a Islander who wants to save money.


She would also go to the gym and try to get bigger muscles than Mr Moran. She is trying to get a 6 pack of abs. She wants to be stronger than every man in the world so she can be like Hulk smash. When she comes back tomorrow she will look like a giant with to many muscles. Than we will never want her as a teacher again.

Land boats

We are designing a land boat for the purpose of racing other students and to help us learn more about boats,  technology and ships. To make this land boat you will need smooth wood so the boat won’t be bumpy when you stand on it. You will also need man made material so that the boat is really strong and thick wheels so it will grip to the concrete and it is strong enough to hold the wood.

A physical attribute explains what you will be using for whatever you’re making and a functional attribute describes how one of the things in your land boat works.

The other things you will need are nails to hammer things on, a helmet for safety and last but not least a steering wheel so that we don’t crash into the other land boats and buildings.


We are probably going to be racing on concrete. If the concrete is a little bit wet and we are using cardboard we would have to figure something out to cover the cardboard with. If we are using foam wheels the wheels would break because they will get soggy and wet.

Catching coin challenge

When I heard about the task I was feeling excited but at the same time I was scared.
Wow! that was amazing. The catching coin challenge was so much fun. These were the rules.


You had to put one hand on our shoulder and put the coin on your elbow. Then you put your elbow in the air and that will make the coin go up. Once the coin is in the air you have time to get ready to catch it but you have to catch the coin with the same hand.


Miss West gave us a coin each and said “you can start now”. As soon as she said that our coins were in the air.  We started and Josh was already up to four because he was so good.


I started and I caught the coin on my first go. Everyone was laughing so much and their coins went everywhere. Some people just wanted to get a lot so they cheated.


Miss West said “ one minute everyone and we were trying to get as much as we could. I was up to eight like  my friend Jahzara. We just kept catching our coins the Miss West said “ your time is up”.


Josh and AJ F caught eleven coins. I also caught eleven coins. Jahzara caught ten and Pisirina caught eight coins. Damien caught 28 coins because he was cheating.
I really wish we can do this same challenge. It was really fun and everybody had a really good time.

Problem Solving week 3


Walt: make connections between fractions and decimals.
Walt: find fractions of a set using multiplication and division

Friday, 12 May 2017

What is that writing

This week, we looked at a picture of a new technology and we had to guess what the problem was that the product was solving. This product looks like a shoe to me. I think the product is made out of aluminum so it’s light for us to hold, Titanium so that the shoes won’t break and it can hold anyone and magnesium so that the shoes are really strong.


Well I think that the product is a shoe. You can press the button in the front and it will record you or take a photo. I also think you can time travel you just say where you want to go and it will take you there. You could also fly. You put your shoes on and you say I want to fly and you will fly. It will also tell you how fast you're going and how slow you’re going. The shoe will also have apps. You just press the button at the back and it will say which app you're on. You just keep pressing the button until it goes to the app you want. If the shoe is flat on power you will have to charge it or else it will lose it’s power. So if you want to charge it you get your charger and plug it in the hole and it will charge. When you see a green light your shoe is charged but if you see a red light it is on low battery.


Wow! Now I know what the product is. Press the link to go to the video Link. It is smart shoes. Did you know it’s the world's first smart shoes? It’s controlled through your smartphone or your smartwatch. The smart shoe laces it self. The smart shoe   actually doesn't come in your size it comes in any size and if your feet is too small it shrinks into your size. The shoe lets you choose the temperature of your shoe and it goes up to 113 degrees. The smart shoe also tracks how many steps you do. It also has a charger which looks like a pair of headphones. The shoes now how tall you are what age you are and how much you weigh. I think the problem is solved by it is smart shoes and it can do what other shoes can’t do.


I think this was a really good idea. I really want to buy these smart shoes. I would buy these shoes because they’re smart. Also because it warms your feet if your feet are cold and because when you buy the shoes it will come in any size so it will shrink into your size and it will let anyone in your family wear the shoes. Well, I would really like the shoes to have apps also to have a camera on the front. The thing I really want it to do is time travel so you can see what your parents were like when they were young. Also you won’t be late anywhere.

Week 1 problem solving

 
Walt: make connections between fractions and decimals.
This is my problem solving for Term 2 week 1.

Maori technology poster

This is my maori technology reading activity.

Now that's thinking writing.

Now that’s thinking is our new theme for this Term. It is all about how technology has changed since maori found New Zealand. We have been looking at what has been used to make technology and what technology really is.

Technology could be a Phone, a computer and headphones. Anything that works is technology. This isn’t all ! Technology isn’t just things that are electrical. It could be boats or waka which maori used. It could also be things like windows,buildings and paper.

This term team 4 is learning about maori technology. Maori people made their own technology.
I think maori technology is waka, their carvings on marae, and tiki and there kete that they weaved with flax.

We know longer use the things maori used back in the day. Maori used trees and wood. We use things that are made out of metal, aluminium, titanium and many more because we have people who travel from other countries that bring new resources.

Fuelling Extinction


This is all about a book called Fuelling Extinction.

WRITING A NARRATIVE

Rapunzel was just a little girl when she got stolen from her parents. Rapunzel spent her whole life in the cold dark woods. She lived with her fake mother , Mother Gothel.

They lived in a small house. No one would go near the house because it was haunted. Rapunzel was sick of Mother Gothel telling her to stay in the house she didn’t know why. Rapunzel never knew that Mother gothel was her fake mum.

When Mother Gothel went out Rapunzel followed her to see what she was getting up to every day. She saw Mother Gothel at the beach she wondered why she would go there and saw her pouring chemical things in the water and chucking rubbish everywhere. She got so angry at her because Mother Gothel knew that rapunzel always took care of the environment.

So she shouted out “Mum what are you doing” Mother Gothel replied “Oh nothing dear”.” I saw what you were doing you were chucking rubbish everywhere and pouring chemical things into the river. You knew what you did” said Rapunzel.

Rapunzel looked all around she was so sad when she saw all the rubbish everywhere she started picking it up. She was crying because it just hurt her so much. Mother Gothel said I’m so sorry for what I have done. Rapunzel said don’t apologize that’s not gonna change anything.

Mother Gothel felt so bad that she started picking up the rubbish. By the end of the day all the rubbish was picked up and in the bin. Rapunzel was still sad because they couldn’t do anything about the water and how all the chemical things were in it. Mother Gothel and Rapunzel went home very sad.

Maui and the giant fish

This is my animation it's called Maui and the giant fish.

Maui and the giant fish voice over



 A long long time  ago there was a man living on a small island. His name was MAUI TIKITIKI-O-TARANGA who was a strong Maori warrior. He and his whanau were starving so  he set off to sea in his waka to catch some fish for his Whanau.


The sea is a place where we can catch kaimoana {Sea food} to eat. If the sea is polluted we won't have any more sea food to eat.


While Maui was out at sea, he rowed his waka all day and all night until he found the perfect spot to fish. He put his bait on his rope and put it out. He sat there waiting and waiting and saw a lot of small  fish  swim past but didn’t want to eat the bait.


It was time something big and black with 2 big red eyes he did not know what it was until it took an enormous bite in the bait. Maui saw the rope going down into the sea. He pulled and pulled it until it became land aotearoa.

Year 5&6 camp

Have you ever been to a camp at your school?. Well I went to camp at my school last week. It’s all about getting to know everyone in team 4.


We had so much fun doing all the activities at camp. We did all sorts of activities like kayaking with Mr Burt and his friends, roller skating and basketball in the hall, the bike track and concert practise with our team. Also Youth town with the youth town helpers and Get lost and Killer zone with Mr Jacobsen.


My favourite part of camp was kayaking because when we got to kayak we kayaked really far but Mr Burt was really scared for the girls because it was a really windy day and he thought that the wind would blow us away. Trendy was the first person to go around the green point and come back .The really funny part was when everybody  fall out of there kayaks.  


My other favourite part of camp was killer zone. But first each teacher had to swap sides so they couldn’t cheat.We had Miss West and the presidents had Miss Scanlan. In Killer zone we had an opponent it was the president's. We had to pick these heavy pieces of wood to get to the other side.


Once we got to the other side we had to start chucking water balloons at the president's when our water balloons ran out we had to run under the tau pollen and do the gumboot throw when we had ten points we ran to this activity where you put a tennis ball in a catapult and launch in onto a mat if the ball lands on it we get two points but if the ball just rolls onto the mat you get one point. We were launching the tennis balls as fast as we could we where getting a lot of points we were hurrying the presidents were catching up and we just got ten points. There was two more activities to go the principals ran to the sponge run we had to fill the sponge with as much water as possible and fill the other bucket until it reached the top we finished all the water and the bucket wasn’t even filled to the top. Then we looked over at the president’s and they were still on the gumboot throw all the principals ran to the ski run to get across the river. We got across the river and picked up our flag waving it around Miss Scanlan ran across recording us on her Go pro.  


I learnt how to be a leader a leader at camp. My first time at school camp was really fun and cool. Thank you to Mr Sommerville,the team 4 teachers,to the helpers and our leaders.

Dear Mr Burt,
I am writing to you because Team 4 really want to grow a native tree or bush around our school like Harakeke, the kowhai tree and Manuka. If we grow these native trees and bushes we have to take good care of it. I chose these native bushes and trees because if we grow harakeke we can  weave flax.

We can also make honey with Manuka and with the Kowhai tree we can provide shade and shelter and provide homes for birds and insects. The native trees will also help purify the atmosphere. Photos are below. These are the places I thought we could grow the trees and bushes.
