Talanoa DLO Extension.

This was my Talanoa DLO. It was for the people who helped us on our trip when we were at the museum. I would like to say a big Thank you to all of you who helped us.By Eden, Jahzara, pisirina and Levonah

Mr Goodwin's deep dish pizza.

Mr Goodwin sat down to order his first Deep Dish Pizza. But Mr Goodwin didn’t know that the chef
was going to do something way better. The chef knew one of Mr Goodwin’s very good friends so he
decided to give him a call so that he could make Mr Goodwin's pizza. When the friend got to the pizza
store he disguised himself so Mr Goodwin would never notice. “Fewwww” he said because he got past.


Then he took off his hoodie and we finally knew who he was. His name was Mr Moran. Mr Moran was
so excited because he got to decorate Mr Goodwin’s pizza. First Mr Moran had to put sauce on the
pizza but he didn’t put any normal sauce he put the hottest sauce in the world on the pizza. The sauce
was called Dave’s Ghost pepper hot sauce. He then spread it round and put the hottest cheese in the
world that was called Tesco’s scotch bonnet cheddar.
Mr Moran made the pizza look like a normal pizza but it had all the hot ingredients on it. After putting the
sauce and cheese he got many other hot ingredients like Ghost peppers, carolina reapers and last but
not least another dazzle of Dave’s ghost pepper hot sauce. Finally the pizza was ready.


It went into the oven and after half an hour the pizza was cooked. The real chef took the pizza out to
Mr Goodwin and he was really happy. He didn’t even notice one bit that it was really different.
Mr Goodwin then took the first bite. It was a really big bite by the way. After he swallowed it his face
turned red and he screamed like a little girl.


Mr Goodwin saw Mr moran come out and he got so mad that even his arms and legs turned red.
Mr Moran was laughing. He even laughed so much that he started to cry. His tears made a puddle that
he could swim in.

Mr Goodwin grabbed a jug of milk and he started chugging and chugging it. Finally all the hotness went
away and they went home happily ever after. Except Mr Goodwin.

Task description: In this task I had to choose from a bunch of stories so I could create my own. It was really fun and I enjoyed it a lot. Read the presentation to find out what happens.

Thank you for putting so much effort and time into organizing the year 5&6 camp. I know it would’ve been hard as it’s your first time organizing it but I say you did a great job.

One of my highlights from camp were kayaking because I was the first person to kayak by myself all the way to the green pole and back. If you didn’t know where we were kayaking at the pt england beach. Did you know that me and Quincess wanted to tip out of the kayak so we just jumped out.

Another highlight was the slip n slide because I was having races with Jacob and we were trying to see who went the furthest. I went past him and onto the grass. We were slip n sliding on the field.

Thank you for doing everything at camp. We can’t thank you enough.

Yours sincerely,

Levonah

Little egg friends

This is my experience about my egg friend. We all got to hold one egg each and take care of it. Have you ever had to take care of your friend but wait it’s not a normal friend it’s an egg friend ?


In class, Mr Goodwin told us what we were going to be doing that morning. He said that we were going to do a challenge, and it was all about eggs. We all ‘cracked’ up when he said that. Mr Goodwin showed us an eggsample of what our task was. He picked out one egg from the egg carton and drew a face on the egg. He showed us the face and asked someone to name it, Marika shouted out  “ Bob” and we laughed so hard that our cheeks hurt so bad.

Once we all got a egg we drew weird crazy faces on them. When we finished drawing our little egg friends faces, we named them, my egg friend was named Fiona. After Fiona in shrek. Room 7 ran outside carefully and started walking to the park. As we were walking we all cradled our eggs and made sure it wasn’t going to drop or die. Fewww I was in luck my egg didn’t die as I was walking to the park.

Mr Goodwin took pictures of us in groups of four, I was with Pisirina, Marika and Jahzara. When he took the picture he said “ try get through the adventure park without breaking or cracking your egg”. We all ran for the rock climbing wall and climbed up. I put Fiona at the top and she nearly got cracked because people were walking past and were almost about to step on her. I got to the top and went past the monkey bars and up the ladder. Mr Goodwin counted down from “ 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, 0, so we could all meet on the grass.

Overall I think that this was really fun. I think everyone should do this activity because they would really enjoy it. I really liked how everyone had such a great time doing this.

WALT: structure a recount.

A Big Big mission

WALT: Make sure that I am being Cybersmart

Have you ever had a teacher turn into a Sargent all of a sudden? Well I have.
Yesterday Sargent Goodwin  took us out on the cold wet grass on the field however it was a
big mission just for us. Read the rest to find out what happens next.

In this big mission Sargent Goodwin told us what to do. He told every single one of us that we
were going to be running. He said “ you guys have to run all the way to the gold post and back”.
We were all getting ready to run then Sargent Goodwin said are you ready. We said yes.

“On your marks get set go” sargent Goodwin said. Everyone ran their hardest all the way their.
When we started running some people ruined it for us. It was the boys. The boys were big
cheaters

The boys ran halfway so that they could win but they didn’t. Lucky Sargent Goodwin told them
off. By the time he finished telling them off the girls were finished. When we finished he told us
to stand in one big straight line. We were his soldiers. It was like we were getting ready to go to
war. We all marched on the bike track around the field like a big army.

I kinda felt like I was training to be a soldier with my friends. Next time I would want to do
some army activities to feel like I’m getting pushed to do everything that soldiers do. Thanks for
reading.

Task description: In this task we had to write about our experience with being soldiers. It was a really fun task and a big mission.

Week 4 day 1

Week 4
Day 1: Turn of the Century (2000-2010)


Activity 1:  Celebrating a Win


In 2000, the country of New Zealand celebrated when Russell Coutts and
his sailing team won their second straight America’s Cup. This was the
first time that a team from New Zealand had won back-to-back
championships! Many people celebrated the victory with their friends and
family.


On your blog, tell us what you and your family do to celebrate special
events, such as birthdays. Do you have a special meal or go to a specific
place? In our house, we usually make a pizza and bake a special cake.
What about you?

For our family on a special day like our birthday we would be able to pick
where we would want to go. Since I was five and my brother was six we
always went to Rainbows end for our birthdays. We went on the night
rides and the day rides with our whole entire family.
Last year I went with my friends. We get a cake made by a baker and we
would eat whatever the birthday person wants.

Activity 2: Lord of the Rings

Arguably one of the most famous movie trilogies of all time, The Lord
of the Rings, was filmed in New Zealand. All three movies were directed
by a New Zealander named Peter Jackson. The first movie was released
in 2001, the second in 2002 and the third in 2003. The movies cost an
estimated $300 million to produce!  
Imagine that instead of spending the money on the movies, Peter
Jackson decided to give all of this money to you. Lucky you! On your
blog, tell us what you would do with $300 million dollars. How would you
spend it? It is a lot of money so please think carefully about it and
spend it wisely :-)


With the $300 million dollars I would save $100 million and with the $200
million I would give it to my family, friends and homeless people who
don’t have anything so they can go spend it on themselves.

Week 3 Day 5 Maintaining the Status Quo (The 1990’s)

Day 5: Maintaining the Status Quo (The 1990’s)
Activity 1: Hiking Tongariro
In 1990, one of the largest national parks in New Zealand, Tongariro,
was listed as a World Heritage Site. It is a truly spectacular place to visit!
Thousands of people go to Tongariro every year and hike the
Tongariro Crossing. Visit the Tongariro website to learn more about the
one-day hike.


On your blog tell us what you would need to pack if you were going to
hike the Tongariro Crossing. What should you bring with you? Write a list
of at least 5 items.


Other than making sure that you have the right equipment, what else
should you do before heading out on a big hike? Click here to learn how
to stay safe while you’re hiking.

  1. Food and Water.
  2. Warm clothes.
  3. Rope
  4. Good shoes that have grip
  5. Something that can hold you
  6. Harness

Those were my things that you should bring.

Activity 2: Leading New Zealand

In the 1990s, four different individuals served as the Prime Minister of New Zealand
Geoffrey Palmer, Mike Moore, Jim Bolger and Jenny Shipley.

Leading New Zealand
Week 3, Day 5 (Bonus Activity)




Name of Prime Minister: Helen Clark
Date of Birth: 26 February 1950


Political Party: New Zealand Labour party
Number of Years as Prime Minister: 9 years
Three interesting facts about my chosen Prime Minister:
  1. She was the 37th prime minister in New Zealand
  2. She is the 5th longest serving prime minister
  3. She was the second woman to hold her position as prime minister.

Bonus Activity: You Have to Pay to Play
In 1990, for the first time in New Zealand’s history, universities and
polytechnics started charging students money to go to school. Prior to
then, it had been free to go to university or to a polytechnic. Since 1990,
students have had to pay thousands of dollars to attend post-secondary
(after high school) education.

The new Labour government have promised to give up to three years of
post-secondary education to all New Zealanders by 2020!

On your blog, tell us what you think. Should students have to pay
money (tuition fees) to go to university? Why or why not?

I think students should not have to pay to go to university because 1
they’ve just gotten out of school and 2 the university should be paying
for it because the kids have no money and have to pay for anything else
that the university says to pay for.

That was my answer.

 I hope you enjoy Week 3 Day 5.
