WEEK 1DAY 1Activity 3: Ice, Ice Baby

Activity 3: Ice, Ice Baby [10 points]
Antarctica is the world’s coldest continent. Even though it is made up of ice, it is also the driest continent in the world. In fact, it hasn’t rained there for nearly 2 million years! It is home to many animals such as whales, seals, birds, and fish. There are no permanent human residents (people who live there all the time) in Antarctica, however scientists do visit and stay in Antarctica for a while to study it.

This year the airline, Air New Zealand, filmed their safety video in Antarctica. They used some fabulous actors from Hornby Primary School in Christchurch. Just like on aeroplanes, we also need to keep safe and be smart online. We need to think about the type of information we are sharing online, who we are sharing information with, and how to have a positive digital footprint.

On your blog, make a copy of this footprint and, inside the footprint, explain how you create a positive, digital footprint. What do you do to stay smart online?.



Activity 2: North and South [4 points]
The country of New Zealand is made up of two main islands – the North Island and the South Island. Approximately 77% of the New Zealand population live in the North Island. Many of these people (including our Summer Learning Journey design team) live in Auckland city. Auckland is a great place to live with lots of amazing parks, beautiful waterways and stunning scenery to enjoy. It is also a busy, vibrant city with many cafes, museums, galleries and theatres to visit. I feel lucky to call Auckland my ‘hometown.’
Now it is time to think about your hometown. What is special about where you live? On your blog, describe your hometown. Be sure to include lots of describing words (adjectives) in your post.

TASK DESCRIPTION: THIS WEEK WE HAD TO FINGURE OUT WHY OUR HOMETOWN WAS SPECIAL HOPE YOU LIKE IT. for this task we had to write about the meaning behind my home town what i liked about it and why it was specia to me l i chose 2 places and that is tonga and Nz

DAY 1: In the Beginning...Activity 1: The Legend of New Zealand (SLJ)

DAY 1: In the Beginning...Activity 1: The Legend of New Zealand (SLJ)


Activity 1: The Legend of New Zealand [4 points]

According to Māori mythology, much of Aotearoa New Zealand was formed when Māui, a powerful demigod, fished it out of the sea. Legend has it that Māui created a magical fish hook from the jawbone of his grandmother and that one day he took his hook, boarded a boat, and rode out into the middle of the Pacific Ocean. Once at sea, he threw his magical hook into the water and caught a fish. This ‘fish’ was actually the North Island of New Zealand! In honour of this legend, the North Island of New Zealand is sometimes referred to as Te Ika a Māui or ‘Māui’s fish’ and the South Island of New Zealand is sometimes referred to as Te Waka a Māui or ‘Māui’s canoe’.
To learn more cool facts about New Zealand, check out the Tourism NZ website. Read the fun facts posted on the website and choose your ‘Top 3.’ On your blog, post your ‘Top 3 Fun Facts’ about NZ in your own words.

There are no snakes in the country

Popular and famous movies made here in nz

include ‘Once were Warriors',The Whale Rider,The Piano’ and the ‘Lord of the Rings’ trilogy.

2 national athems

that have 2 offical athems. the first athem is god save the queen and 
2nd is god defend nz

this year has been quite a intresting journey there were so many trips
and exciting weeks there was the school film festival , yr 8s camp , year 7 team building
, yr 7 rainbows , parakai and the school picnic. my highlight this year was defindently rainbows end
and yr 7 team building the reason why i chose those two options for my highlight was because rainbows end was really fun and thrilling at the same time i think my favorite ride was the invader and statosfear also the log ride. The year 7 team building was fun because all the yr 8s left just kidding its because it was at nicer with just all the year 7s and funer not saying that the yr8s aren't fun or nice the are a bit funer than the year 7s just saying.

Have you ever seen a tea bag on fire float up before?Have you ever seen a tea bag on fire float up At school in class before? well i have
Today in room 4 literacy we did a little sience exsperiment on a teabag with our class mate Terry
and Mrs Stone. Mrs stone and Terry had 2 empty tea bags they lit up the top of the tea bag with a lighter on a chair to be honest i was a bit scared i thought that the class was gonna burn down or even the chair but it didn't it was a relief. The 2 tea bags were lit up on fire and were floating up to the ceiling
really quicly than it just all turned into dust.the exsperiment was about 57 seconds long that was pretty short experiemt .

after that short experiement i wondered how the tea bag was able to float up it was able to float up because the air was heated up by the fire so that made energy for the Teabag to float up. It had more energy than the cold air outside it.

How to look after and keep your body healthy

How to look after your body
Why should we keep healthy? Does it do any good? Do we need to keep healthy? We need to keep
healthy and take care of our body’s so we can have good health and not get order to not get sick
or gain more weight is to eat more veggies , fruits and water.
A healthy diet
It’s good to keep healthy and have a healthy diet so you can think more and also so you're able
to do more things instead of gaining weight. in order to do that you could think about what you
should eat or what not to eat like eating more vegetables and fruits and the right nutrition instead of
eating all that junk food that your body really doesn’t need.
How to keep healthy
It’s good to keep healthy so you can have good health and you don’t get sick in the future and here are my 4  tips on how to keep healthy.
Tip 1 Exercise
it is good to Exercise so you can keep fit and keeping fit is being healthy the type of exercise you
could do is running or go to the gym or even yoga so you can keep fit and flexible at the same time.
Tip 2 healthy snacks
Instead of always eating junk food like chocolate for snacks you could try eating as a snack a salad
or fruits like some chopped up fruits or just a apple that's good for your health and will help actually
help feel better than your usual .
Tip 3 eating
It’s not too bad to go out sometimes and eat out but sometimes eating Fast food can really
cause damage to your body and who knows  maybe even your brain. so you could try eating
fast food like once a week .

Tip 4 drink lots and lots of water
You should drink lots and lots of water so you can keep hydrated instead of  being dehydrated
also so you can have lots of energy and be ready for the day.

Fortnite writting fornite should be banned no it should have a age limit

FORTNITEImage result for banned sign
Should fortnite be banned?
Should it be banned for children under 14?

Fortnite is an extremely addictive game that should be banned but i
Think that banding fortnite is a bit to big and may even hurt  for fortnite
lovers or fans so i think that the game should have like an age limit for
like 13 and over Or 14 and over.

Why should fortnite be banned for kids under the age of 14?
There are many reasons why fortnite should be banned
But today i will only be giving you 3 reasons so here they are.
Reason 1 Fortnite is to additive
Fortnite is so addictive even parents complain about how  additive
This game is for their kids.

Reason 2
Kids aren’t getting much sleep.
Kids aren’t getting much sleep these days as they used to
Because their to busy playing fortnite late at night when they
Are supposed to sleep because like i said in reason 1 this game is
to additive.

Now last but not least reason 3
Kids education
Kids are not learning much as they used to because their not able
to focus properly on their work like i said in reason 1 and 2 this game
is to addictive and kids don’t sleep much.

So there u have my reasons why fortnite should have a age limit

Hope you enjoyed reading and thank you 4 reading it to

Task description:
last week in writting we have been writting about our thoughts about fortnite and were thinking if we should write about banding the game or not and why . here is my writting hope you enjoy or enjoyed reading it

last week in room 4 literacy we have been learning about nelson mandela , the apartheid and martin luther king jr and how they were great leaders.   

for this task we had to make a poster , movie or presentation with facts about nelson mandela and a bit about him. as you can see i chose to make a poster  and added photos and facts about martin mandela.


                          AN UPSTANDER
An upstander is someone who stands up for what is right and what
they believe in they stand up to support , protect ,care and help others.
An upstander acts to make it right when something's gone wrong for
example a person needs help of course an upstander would help them
out or what if there’s a little kid getting hurt or being bullied an upstander
wouldn’t just stand there and stare him/she would do something about it
and also help that person out.
Helping others who are being bullied
You see a person getting bullied and you want to tell that bully
but sometimes It’s kind off a bit hard to tell a bully or someone to
stop because sometimes they just don’t really listen. You should at
least get someone older or just get their parents and if they still don’t
listen just try and take care of the person they are bullying and make
sure and him/she is alright be a friend.

Stopping untrue and hurtful messages that could hurt other people
and yourself.
If someone tells you rumor that you know it’s untrue or if they
send you a message about  someone else and it could be really
hurtful to that person. Stand up and let that person know be an
upstander let that person know that it is wrong. Think about how
you would feel if someone spread an hurtful untrue rumour about
you it would hurt i know because that happened to me before but
someone told me about it and that person who spreaded the rumour
off and now that person is now my best friend not the person who
spreaded the rumour.

Respecting others
Respect others differences and help others to respect
differences too. It’s cool for people to be different  that’s
what makes all of us unique.

Thank you for reading this

HOW I MET MY best friends

Meeting my friends
HOW I MET MY Best friends
Since 2015 i’ve been friends with hazel and Since 2016 i’ve been friends with pilinilose
But then things changed in 2017 we have became the best of friends we pretty much
Were in the same class for everything so we became bffs.
But then i met two girls named laolao and vahoi they were  both new and a bit lonely and got mocked for the
Way they  looked and how they didn’t have a netbook so they were always on an imac. i really felt
sad for them so i asked if they wanted to be friends with me and my friends they both  said “ok sure”
so then we became friends.

When i introduced laolao and vahoi to my other friends hazel and pilimilose they didn’t want to
be friends with laolao and vahoi pilinilose thought that they were mean and well ugly hazel thought
that laolao looked like moana and vahoi was a bit to rough i told pilinilose off for saying that then i
told them that “you guys  just need to get to know them more” “ok” hazel and pilinilose said. Days
past and weeks hazel , laolao , pilinilose and vahoi became really good friends we all became bffs
after that we met more new friends in 2018 venice and eva that’s when vahoi moved away.

We met venice when we had to make quotes in class she was all by herself drawing i came over to
where she was sitting. i had a look at her art i thought wow she is really talented venice
Was really good at drawing so i told her about how great her drawing was but she just
Kept on denying what i was saying than i told her “if you want to you can sit with us” so she
did and she became one our best friends. Now i am going to tell you how we met eva
It was time to move to our maths class everyone was looking for a seat and a table but there
wasn’t that much tables so we sat with eva then we had to work with her then we started bonding
 and that’s how we met eva .

i have more best friends and friends but if i write how i met all
Of them this story would get really  really boring anyway thank you for reading this
And if you want to know who my best friends are i’ll leave a picture of them and a link to
Their blog.               

eva on the left        hazel & lose
