Trip to Stardome

Paideia seminar

Last Tuesday  the year 5&6 extension had there once in a term paideia seminar.  When I arrived in Ict I was really Panicked because I didn’t know what to say or when to say it but still I didn’t dare say a thing.

When the bell rang for lunch I was so relieved because we had Live stream practice and I thought that would take my mind of things but boy was I wrong. The only thing I could think about during lunch was the paideia seminar. My friends tried snapping me out of it but it was no use.

The bell rang and my face dissolved into tears my I watered like rain. Tears ran down my face like a waterfall. My Teacher decided to take me to Ict my lips went dry and I started to get goose bump as I entered Ict.

I lined up silently as we started towards tusitala. This was scary because all of a sudden my brain had flipped and I wasn’t to keen about my planet anymore. The reason I was scared was because I didn’t know how my group would react to what I said.

I sat down on my seat and waited for the seminar to take place. I didn’t talk much of the time but soon then Hinerangi asked to hear what I have to say. I told what was in my brain and as I did my one of the members in my group yelled Pure honesty I felt better and told more about why our planet wasn’t the best.

At the end of the seminar I was relieved that I didn’t have to think about what was going on.  But as people decided to leave Mrs Sinclair came and started talking to me about what had happened at lunch. I didn’t want to answer so I just said what was at the  back of my mind. Even that didn’t get me out of there she just reminded my of the other production back in da day.

So that how I decided I wasn’t the production type and I wouldn’t ever audition in a production ever again.

The thing I did better this time would probably be that I  said things that I had thought really deeply about. My goal next time would be not to do anything like that in my lunch time espacially when it is on the week if the paidaie seminar. Next time My goal would also be to try and contributte more with thing that will help my group instead of what wouldn’t help my group.

The thing I learnt most in this experience is that I Being civilized is not the best thing because it make people greedy and leave people homeless. I also think being civilized is not a good Idea because when we are civilized places like America are always focused on thing they don’t have they don’t care about thing they already have. So that is what I learnt most about.

Solar Eclispse

 WOW! We have just gotten to witness the eclipse in 2017 august 21st. This will go down in history and I will probably remember this until the next solar eclipse.

I was so lucky that they were handing out eclipse glasses so our eyes won’t get damaged even a little ray of the solar eclipse even for a few second can damage your eyes.

Do you know what a solar  eclipse is well I am about to tell you a solar eclipse is when the moon goes over the sun but since the moon it to cover the sun completely there are still a few bead poking out one of them are called the diamond ring.

Wow this was so cool did you know that when there is a solar eclipse human aren’t the only one reacting. animals and plants also react. For example flowers might start to close up.

This has been amazing being able to watch this eclipse it would probably be the only eclipse I would remember. In the future I would love to watch a solar eclipse so till then.

Animation Voice over

’The earth is so polluted’’ said Zaria “ I agree” said Alisha let’s go find a new planets. Should we take my rocket or yours? said Alisha “hmmm… let’s take mine” replied Zaria “okay”Said Alisha. They boarded the rocket made out of pizza’s and blasted to outer space. “We are out of this world” said Zaria  “haha very funny” replied Alisha.

They past all the planets in the solar system. “Mars jupiter neptune pluto Uranus moon earth venus saturn that’s all of them we are officially out of the solar system” said Alisha “and have arrived at our first planet’’ finished Zaria.

They landed on the planet but the ship had turned into a normal rocket “hey what gives said Zaria “don’t worry remember you are on another planet right now”said a mysterious voice. Zaria knew that voice from somewhere but were “who said that” Zaria replied as she jumped into one of her karate moves.

“Don’t worry I am in your space watch/phone/communicator”said the voice Zaria looked at her watch and saw a friendly face “Zaeeda” she shouted in relief. Zaria was talking to Zaeeda on the watch but Alisha had already started looking for the right resources that make a planet habitable.

“This is a good planet” said Zaria to Zaeeda “and it has all the right resources” Alisha finished out of the blue. The celebrated and got Zaeeda to alert the rest of the planet. Everyone landed on crownania the new planet to support human life.

A few years later…..

’The earth is so polluted’’ said Zaria “ I agree” said Alisha “here we go again” Zaria said.

Capture the flag

WOOOOW!!!!! I have just had the best experience EVER!!!!! Just joking  this morning room 10 went outside for a game of capture the flags but we didn’t really do anything except wait. We had to wait for our turn and we had to wait for the cones to be set up wow.

The worst part was that  I also got my feet muddy for nothing because the field was really muddy. I am usually cool with it but today I am just mad really really  mad it make me want to MMMMMMMMM…. Never mind.

Now we have to write a recount about what happened and that is even worst. Today is just not my day. I hate it when it is not my day sigh. I can’t wait till school is over.

I also feel really stink because I was only  in one of the round and heaps of people got two rounds, life is so not fair. Guess what else the game I was in was like only 1 minute life goes fast when your play a game. Probably because we had to reset the cones.

Back to the story once we got back to class there was a live stream call out I thought maybe that would get the game off my mind but it was just for the ending scene sigh sigh sigh.

And now I feel left out because heaps of people are talking to each other and I am sitting here being bored. I hated this experience sigh. I might not come school tomorrow because it was really cold outside and now my feet are freezing and I can only walk when I tip toe.

So there the worst school experience I have ever had in my whole time at school so far well I guess I haven’t spent much time at school well let’s see if tomorrow's my day.


Today room 10 literacy got to experience scanning. Scanning is when you have an amount of time and you have to dig up information about the book and what happens in the book without reading it here is the task we did have you ever done scanning ?

  3. Then you have to tip you head over and see if it falls off if it does try another one if it doesn’t good ( watch out for others)
  4. Next check the straps usually is would be in a v but we don’t want a v we want a y you can adjust the straps from the buckles under your chin

Problem Solving

Earth Natural Resources

Do you ever wonder what the earth's natural resource are? Well I am about to tell you about the earth's resources,  I am also going to tell you about what make our planet habitable.

Some of the earth's natural resource might surprise you. A few of the earth's natural resources are oxygen and sun.  natural resources are important to us because if we didn’t have natural resources we wouldn’t be able to live.

The first resource I am going to discuss with you is  the sun. The sun is a natural resource it is used for multiple things like growing plants and drying clothes. The sun is a really important resources because we wouldn’t have days with out the sun. The sun is found in the middle of the solar system. DING DING mini fact the sun is at the middle of the solar system did you know that planet have Goldilocks zone and we need just the right zone.

Next I will be talking about soil. Soil, what is soil ? Well most people call soil dirt but scientist have a special scientific name for it called soil.  Soil is very important because without soil we wouldn’t have plants and without plant we wouldn’t have tree and if there was no trees we would have no fruit. Soil is found in lots of different forms sometimes sticky and squish and sometimes hard and tough but we all know that it is soil aka dirt. DING DING mini fact did you know that soil has air in it is  soil how does the soil get air in side well tiny bugs like ants and worm dig hole in the soil so that's how soil has air in it.

last but hopefully not least I come to my last resource. I am now going to discuss water. Water is a type of liquid that keeps us hydrated water can become a solid and a liquid and a gas. 71% of the earth is covered with water and 95% of the ocean is undiscovered.  DING DING mini fact earth has a lot of resources but water is the most renewable resources ever.

So  I hope you learned something. One more thing I am going to tell you these resources are dieing and there are more that are dieing out there and it is for uncountable number of reasons that those resources are dieing so in my opinion we should all pitch in to help save planet earth. What is your opinion?

Gauridians of the Galaxy Writing

It is take your kid to work day and Zaria goes to the space station with her dad because her dad is a scientist. She is really excited because she wants to be an astronaut when she grows up.

At the space station Zaria finds out that earth's resources are being destroyed Zaria was still thinking about it when Her dad disappears into a lab with the other scientists. He tells Zaria to go to the waiting room where she would meet some other kids to play with and gives her some money to buy food. Then leaves Zaria to amuse herself.

Zaria is looking for the waiting room when she finds a spaceship in one of the rooms. Curiously she goes to take a look inside the spaceship. Suddenly out of the blue the spaceship starts up and Zaria is confused about what was happening soon she is soon blasted off into outer space.

Back at the station the scientists are alarmed of what happened.  Zaria changed into a space suit and got to the driver seat. Zaria had to dodge planets and meteorites and other things like satellite transmitters.

While Zaria was there she decide to go look for another planet to support human life force. While Zaria was in out of space she saw brown lines all around the land on earth and even the cloud weren’t as white anymore wow she says in disappointment the earth is so polluted.

Zaria goes to a tones planets But none of them had the right you resources some of them didn’t have the right oxygen level, some didn’t have plants or water, some we inhabited, and some we get dead dark.
Zaria looks and looks, she looks right, she looks left and she looks up and down but nothing. Soon Zaria comes upon another planet It looks like Earth but The species of plants were different.

Zaria soon realised that the species are the same on Earth. Zaria names the planet Crownania. She Quickly started up the rocket again and flew back to Earth to tell the other everyone about the new discovery she made.

But  back at the space station the Scientist had already found out about Zaria Discovery. They got all the humans ready and their animals ready to leave Earth. Zaria arrived and got a big surprise everyone had  boarded spaceships and we're already blasting off.

Zaria found her dad and asked what was happening he said that we know what you found when you were in outer space then her told her she was grounded because she didn’t have parent supervision our permission to do that.How do you know I found a new planets it was a camera in your space so we could keep track of what was happening Oh that explains it.

After everyone had boarded a rocketship and had gone to Crownania Zaria stayed behind and looking at some of the damaged resources. If this is how humans treat this world who knows what they would do to crownaninia.

Just as Zaria was born in the spaceship she got an idea What if  I people to keep crownania clean after all I am the founder of crownania.

Zaria Went back to Crownainia and told everyone to look after this planet if you want to live on it. And from then on maybe then did the  earthlings learn there lesson.

Yr 5 and 6 Extension Seminar

Yr  5 and 6 Extention seminar

Last week on Tuesday year 5 and 6 extension had a seminar.The best thing I like about it was the lollies. I also liked that little question Really bring out what people are thinking.

What I learned

I learnt that alot of people are affected by a small problem, for example o maru creek it is so dirty now that nobody can swim in it and the fish bird and animals around there are having to leave because of the rubbish. This linked to the seminar because in this we are poluting our ennviroment and in the seminar we talked about how our natural resources are used to make new technology.

What we could do better next time

I think that next time we could get more time to prepare and they told us the topic Before the day of the seminar.

Personal Words about the seminar

At the seminar I was really nervous because We had not prepared but once we listened to a bunch of other people we  started to feel more relaxed It was just like talking in the production back in da day and it was really easy to piggy bank on other ideas because of what our amazing teachers have taught us Mrs Lagitupu and Mrs Sinclair.

My Next goal
My next step towards learning more is trying new things things I have never tried before.

We had just been left by our tour guide (Curious Kiwi) in the middle of a large bush. Luckily most of the tour group had read about this place well, we all got into groups of three each group had a elderly a toddler and a person that read about this place. Once we were all paired up we decided to carry on our tour and look for Curious Kiwi. We curiously walked along but didn’t go very far when we heard  the crackling of leaves. As we walked on we heard someone call HELP HELP Is was Curious Kiwi.  We hurried towards the sound being careful to stay together. After a while we saw a small clearing with a rocky cave we left five of the groups outside and the other four to go in the cave as we walked into the cave we saw a small glow starting to grow. Finally we saw Curious Kiwi head something in his hands is was a Kiwi and it was had a broken win. We got the other groups outside to come inside and help the Kiwi we got into groups the elders helped make a cast out of harakeke/ flax and the toddlers got sticks and stones to keep the fire alive and the others helped take care of the Kiwi everyone pitched in and helped the innocent Kiwi. By the time we finished it was midday so curious Kiwi carried on the tour and this time he didn’t disappear.

Hector Dolphins.
Hector dolphins are the most smallest dolphins in the world they grow to be 1.5  metres. But sadly Hector dolphins are close to being extinct because more and more Hector dolphins die every year. Hector dolphins die by accidentally getting stuck into fishing nets and can't break free. People argue that fishermen should not be allowed to fish near or in Farewell spit. I think that fisher men shouldn't be allowed to fish near or in Farewell spit and if they do they should get fined at least over 200$ and if they still don't listen they might even have to go to court.

I think yes New Zealand should be predator free but I don't think we should kill the predators.

1. We shouldn't kill the predators because how would you like it if someone locked you up killed you.

2. Why do you want to kill them when you can just send them back  to Australia.

3. Even  if you try and kill them they will get smarter and will avoid your traps.

Wow what A great term I learnt a lot can wait till next term and What our teacher have planned for us this.

Narrative Writing

In Aotearoa there lived four chicken. They were wild chicken.
They lived in a deep dark bush. It is peaceful in the bush most of the time but there are builders that a building spa’s and community pools around the place like that.

You might not have noticed but the builder have been getting quite close to the chickens cave. Chika was getting a snack. BOOOOOOOOOOm.  ‘’ what was that said’’  Chika pulling a walnut from the hard mud.

Chika started to run towards the noise on the way she met her brother Rie.
A few moments later Tinka and Rinka saw her 2 twin sisters.  They came to a small clearing and saw what was happening. Every where bulldozers diggers truck people cutting down tree.

‘’What is going on’’ said Chika ‘’I don’t know’’ Rie replied. ‘’We know’’ interrupted the twins “ that are building a luxury spa for dogs and pets’’ said the twins.

DUUUUUUUUUCCCCCCCCCKKKKKKKKKK!!!!!!!!!!! Yelled Rie “ duck where we are all chicken” replied Chika.  WWWWWWWOOOOOOOOWWWWWWW !!!! Chika yelled as she stumbled to the ground. “ let’s get out of here” said Rie as he Jumped over the broken branch.

That night Chika had a talk with her family. “ we can’t live here anymore’’  said Chika ’’But then were can live’’ said Rie. ‘’I don't know’’ said Chika I GOT IT !!! Yelled Rie suddenly jumping to his feet ‘’ you got what’’ repeated Chika. ‘’ I got were we can live he grabbed a map from a bush nearby and showed the others.

The others agreed and they prepared for their travel. The next morning they set off to sea was mostly sunny with a bit of cloud. Soon it was afternoon and the chickens were exhausted.

“ I’m Beat” said Rie “ UUUUU SSSSSSSS TTTTTTTT OOOOOO” complained the twins. “Let’s eat and then hit the hay’’ said Chika. That night they all fell asleep all except Chika.

She lay awake on a stack of hay looking up at stars. “Beautiful night isn’t it” said a mysterious voice WWWHHHOOO IISS IIITT stamppered Chika It’s me replied the voice.

A few seconds later a figure appeared soon the figure was right next to her.
“I am oll black beard” said a joyful voice. When the figure stepped into the light of the moon the figure turned out to be a chicken excepted just liked Chika.

“ turn that frown up side down” said black beard, “why ya so dim! “ I don’t know” replied chika “ do you know how to drive the ship No that’s why I am sad.

“I can teach you how to navigate and to find food and sail on ship “okay what do I ow you” said chika “maybe some grub” said black beard.  Chika agreed and went to sleep.

For the last few day Chika got lessons about sailing and fed Black Beard. One clear afternoon Rie shouted “ LLLLLLLLLAAAAAAAANNNNNNNDDDDDDDD HHHHHHOOOO”
Chika looked not far over the horzion and saw some land.

“Prepare to lower the anchor” she Yelled to the rest. They were on dry land by nightfall.  In the morning chika had already woken up she was exploring the Island.

While she was exploring she had found a cave for her family. They moved in and lived happily ever after.
