Fuelling Extinction

This is all about a book called Fuelling Extinction.


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.

Paideia Seminar

This was my first Paideia Seminar ever. If you were wondering what a Paideia Seminar is well it is where people all get together and have a polite argument. I felt really scared at first but as the seminar went on I wasn't scared anymore.
