Summer Learning Journey - Week 2 - Day 1 - Airport Language- Activity 1

Today I am here to write about if I went to a country and I never knew what language they were speaking so I had to write a poem about it. This is my poem.

I always felt it quite,
strange and scary,
that everyone is in a small world,
but in a big place,
like an airport,
and I wonder how I will fell,
 if I didn't know how to speak there language,
It would be the scariest thing in the whole world,
I will be confused,
and all those emotion,
but not happy or excited.

Summer Learning Journey - Day 5 - Week 1 - Activity 2 - More Books

I have to write about this read the following three reviews of books that are really popular right now in Canada. If you had to choose one for Curious Kiwi to read on the plane, which one would you choose? Post the name of the book that you would chose on your blog. Below the title explain why you would choose that book. The 3 reviews are:

C:\Users\rwil313\Desktop\Catching Fire book cover image.jpg
Book 1: Catching Fire (The Hunger Games #2) by Suzanne Collins
Against all odds, Katniss has won the Hunger Games. She and fellow District 12 tribute Peeta Mellark are miraculously still alive. Katniss should be relieved, happy even. After all, she has returned to her family and her longtime friend, Gale. Yet nothing is the way Katniss wishes it to be. Gale holds her at an icy distance. Peeta has turned his back on her completely. And there are whispers of a rebellion against the Capitol - a rebellion that Katniss and Peeta may have helped create. Much to her shock, Katniss has fueled an unrest she's afraid she cannot stop. And what scares her even more is that she's not entirely convinced she should try. As time draws near for Katniss and Peeta to visit the districts on the Capitol's cruel Victory Tour, the stakes are higher than ever. If they can't prove, without a shadow of a doubt, that they are lost in their love for each other, the consequences will be horrifying.
Book 2: Matilda by Roald DahlC:\Users\rwil313\Desktop\Matilda book cover.jpg
Matilda is a sweet, exceptional young girl, but her parents think she's just a nuisance. She expects school to be different but there she has to face Miss Trunchbull, a kid-hating terror of a headmistress. When Matilda is attacked by the Trunchbull she suddenly discovers she has a remarkable power with which to fight back. It'll take a superhuman genius to give Miss Trunchbull what she deserves and Matilda may be just the one to do it!
Book 3: Diary of a Wimpy Kid – The Ugly TruthC:\Users\rwil313\Desktop\DoaWK image.jpg
Greg Heffley has always been in a hurry to grow up. But is getting older really all it’s cracked up to be? Greg suddenly finds himself dealing with the pressures of boy-girl parties, increased responsibilities, and even the awkward changes that come with getting older—all without his best friend, Rowley, at his side. Can Greg make it through on his own? Or will he have to face the “ugly truth.”

I deiced to choose Diary of a Wimpy Kid because I love there books. I always read this book when I was 7-9 years old but when I was seven my sister or parents will read it to me. It is about his personal life. I have even seen one of there movies, which was awesome.

Summer Learning Journey - Week 1 - Day 3 - Safety tips in an airplane

Activity 1

What I am learning today is that I have to list 3 safety things to do in an airplane. Here are my 3 safety things.

1. If you have a loose item anywhere put it in your locker or under neath the chair in front of you.

2. If a seat belt goes on, be sure to put it on and keep it on for the rest of the flight. If you need to get up just lift the leaver. Also the belts are on your hips like some cars.

3. If you need some air, an oxygen mask will fall down from above. Pull down the mask and place over your mouth and nose and adjust the elastic so it can fit you. 

Here are 2 links that have some more safety things to do in a plane. Click the two links if you want to watch it Safety in Hollywood and Men in Black.

What I have to do is design I logo if I was asked to own my very own airline. So I decided to draw a logo, did is my best drawing.

This is my logo and I called it Air Anna Plane because it goes on the air and it is  my name and then it is a plane. On the top it say NZ - Plane because I am from NZ. I got some stars on the bottom because on the  New Zealand flag it has blue and red stars. There's an under line on Air Anna Plane because I just wanted to be more decorative. Then the whole thing is a lite blue because I love that color. The background is pink because my sisters choose it.

  4. The languages most commonly spoken in the capital city is English.

Activity 2

What I am learning today is that I have to write about if I want bull fighting to stop or should it keep on going and I have to say 2 reasons why.

I think that bull fighting should stop and keep on going. 

1.  The reason why I want it to stop is that instead of the bull dying you could also die in accident.

2. The second reason is that the bulls might be extincted which would be sad what if you were fighting a mummy bull and you killed it and it had babies inside it's stomach.

And now my two reasons that I want to make bull fighting keep on going.

1. My first reason is that some people might just be doing it for fun because they are probably bored to death everyday.

2. My second reason is that the bulls probably killed one of there family members while they were doing this event. They got angry and just wanted to kill bulls. ( And kids violence doesn't lead you to anything, so be good. You have a life for a reason which is being nice to everyone even animals)

So that was my reasons to this activity, hope you enjoy my reason. Please leave a comment on my blog to give me some feedback. Also tell me what you think about Bull Fighting.

Year 6 Camp Writing

Walt: Write a detailed recount about our experience to Kawau Island

Have you ever been to camp before? On Tuesday morning we all went to the hall to get ready to go to our camp. The year sixes, teacher and some parents went to camp at Kawau Island. We went to Kawau Island because the year sixes needed space from the year fives, we went on a bus then we went on a ferry.

We were finally at Camp Bentzon, when we finished putting the bags on the deck we all met on the prickly grass outside. Everyone kept on moaning and whining about the prickly grass. We met a woman and her husband and their names are: Peter and Erin, they were welcoming us and saying we should have a great week, which I was so excited about, they also told us about the stingrays and the orcas, which freaked us out.

We had to go in our groups. The groups names were Katz, Bentzon, Mansion and Kawau, Katz represented the ferry, Bentzon represented Camp Bentzon, Mansion represented the house near Kawau Island, Kawau represented Kawau Island. My group was Bentzon and my team leaders are Samoa and David, for every group there is a group A & B and I was in Bentzon A and for Bentzon B the team leaders was Sabrina and Kyron, for every group there was a parent helper and my parent helper was Miss Adams which is Kadens mum. Also for Bentzon B the parent helper for there team was Miss Timmi which is Jade and Collin’s mum.

We went for a walk up the Killer Hiller. There was a lot of up hills which hurted my calves. I kept on whining and saying to Miss Parrant “ Miss, can we stop now? My legs hurt so bad” “ NO, we just started” replied Miss Parrant. We walked so long I had to hold on to Bryana. She was running and that’s how my legs almost worked. Then we stopped where there was a rock hill and I was a grateful and thankful for rock hill. You have to climb it and say what you are grateful for and thankful. Leatham said what he was thankful for.

The year sixes stopped at a park next to the beach and we ate our morning tea. I kept on complaining to Mr Somerville and saying “ Can we go back to the camp now?” Mr Somerville didn’t even reply to me which was so rude of him. We walked back to the camp and got our cabins ready.

I was in a cabin with four girls there names are: Kerstein, Nyree, Sheales and Paige they told me I could be on the top bunk, which I wanted to be on. The time was very fast I looked up the sky and the sun was already down.

At night we watched a movie called The Princess Bride. It was a great movie. After that it was bedtime. It was so late that my eyes started closing when Mr Somerville was talking. The girls in my cabin kept on talking and almost all the teachers came in and told us to stop talking. Then my cabin woke up very early and we started getting ready to go for our run. Then the buguel went on everyone ran outside and Mr Somerville and Mr Jacobsen was standing outside waiting for us, off we went to our run. It was a little bit short.

We came back the bugeul went on again and it was telling us to meet outside on the deck to get ready for breakfast.  Kerstein and I were in the same group so we lined up and we were the first ones to eat our breakfast. We ate cereal and hot foods and at the end we had the best hot chocolate in the world. Mr Goodwin always asked “Does anyone want seconds?.” I never go for seconds because the hot chocolate always makes my stomach full.I t is so delicious.

My favourite activity is: Sailing because we were the first ones to do sailing and my partner was with Kerstein, we decided that I will steer first and she would work on the sail. When we first went on the sail we were scared because we thought we would tip over and because the stingrays and Orcars. We hopped on and Peter pushed us when I was steering we were actually going no here. Then finally the wind came up, the wind was blowing so hard. Peter told us to go to the red roof house we always go to Mr Goodwin and back to Miss Adams then again and again, when Mr Goodwin tells us to go back to Miss Adams he always says “TILLER TO THE SAIL” which means you have to turn the tiller to the sail and then the sail will change the other way.

I loved all the activities that we did at Kawau Island. Thanks to the teachers and parents for taking your time to go to the camp with nearly all the year sixes. Mostly thank you to Peter and Erin for letting us go to the camp at Kawau Island, Thanks to everyone who supported the year sixes for the best day of my life.

Holiday highlight

On October 10th 2016, we had an immersion assembly Mr Burt was talking about what he did and welcoming us. It was so exciting to be at school on the first day of the last term, and to meet my friends and teachers.

On October 10th, It was the first day of term 4, it was so exciting. I ran to my classroom and saw my beautiful teachers, and my friends. When we first saw eachother we ran to each other and hugged so tight. Then my home room walked to the hall (Room 7.) Then we saw Mr Burt and Mrs Nua making something.

Our whole school came and sat down, Then Mr Burt was welcoming us and saying stuff like “ I missed you guys so much and It felt like forever.” It acutally felt like it was like 5 years. Once Mr Burt said Explosions.

There was a huge “BOOM!!” and it was Mr Jacobsen and Mrs Garden doing an experiment but everytime Mr Burt says explosion Mr Jacobsen always says “OHH I love explosions” Then he always does a witch laugh which is weird.
