Didgeridoo

Today room 7 made Didgeridoos and this video is of me explaining how to use it and what it does.

WALT Using different types of sentences for effect


WALT Using different types of sentences for effect
Read:
A tsunami is a large wave on the ocean, usually caused by an undersea earthquake, a volcanic eruption or coastal landslide. A tsunami can travel hundreds of  miles over the open sea and cause extensive damage when it encounters land.

Think about the different sentence lengths:
The water is only metres away now. I stand frozen on the beach, praying that the ocean will merely tickle my toes with its cooling surf. But it does not. A huge, roaring sea tiger devours me in one ravenous bite, lifts me off my feet and tosses me like a rag doll towards the hotel. I can’t see. I can’t breathe. This is it. I am going to die…
See how the last few sentences are all short, but one after the other. It creates tension and puts the pictures in your mind that the character really is gasping for breathe.
‘But it does not’ - this sentence is blunt, opposing the sentence before it.

Add in punctuation (make sure you use different sentence lengths):
Round and round and round. I’m like an old pair of socks in a giant washing machine. I am thrown against chairs and tables and plant pots and parasols. Thwack! a heavy cocktail glass falls from the bar and strikes me on the head. blood fills my eyes. I cannot see . Frantically I thrash my arms and legs about, trying to reach the palm tree. I can just make out of my left fingertips brush against the tree trunk and I struggle to grab hold of it then I am caught up in the spin cycle again round and round and round I go scraping against walls and steps and sun-beds and broken bottles I cannot possibly survive this.

Start Here: It was the day when I was left home alone I was standing in my room thinking of what I should do then suddenly the wind closed the door.I laughed and said well now open it'.I froze when the door opened up slowly, my heart pounded I was frightened so I called my parents, when I got my phone out I just got a message the message said "I'm busy honey I'll be home late, there's dinner in the fridge" it was from my mum, I heard weird noises then again another message it said " Your Welcome ". I was very scared that I got goosebumps all over my body, I felt a touch from the back of me I turned around and there was no one there I started walking backwards to the corner of the wall and suddenly I bumped into something tall so I turned around again and boo it was a nun I started screaming and tried to run away but it was to fast that it caught me.

Yoga Challenge 2.0

This morning room 7 did part 2 of the yoga challenge, I came late so I only got to do a little but I was still happy because I would be too shy to  do it.When I came Lydia had nobody so we went into buddies, the rest for us were very difficult.Every Time we would change to the next photo Miss Fepuleai would tell us to  inhale and exhale then she would say Namaste.

Everyone that came late was Falakika,Stanley & Amon we all came late but at different times, anyways, there were two that we had to go into big groups and then Stanley arrived then we were finishing up when Amon came but we all wanted to do 1 more so we did that 1 more photo and to me out of all the ones I did with Lydia that last one was the hardest to me.

Me and Lydia couldn’t do it but we kept on trying but at the same time  I didn’t want to do it but I did it.The whole time it was really fun for me and I’m sure it was fun for the others too.I also enjoyed it at the same time.

I hope we get to do Yoga Challenge 3.0 next time.

Falakika & Stanley - Partner Yoga

On Tuesday, 24th October 2017 room7 done an activity Partner Yoga “ Girls only allowed to buddy with another girl and same to boys ” Explained Miss Ashley.While everyone was getting into buddies me and Stanley just sat there.

Me and Stanley had no partners because we. Were to shy to get into buddies, so Miss Ashley  told me & Kika to go and take photos of the class. While they were doing the activity the kids who done the yoga were in there spots when the first photo came on the tv.

Stanley -I got Miss Ashley’s phone and Kika got the Ipad but her phone wasn’t working so Miss Ashley gave me the other Ipad like Kika did to but mine was a bit bigger, anyways while we were taking  photos of them it was already kind of difficult for them on the first one but  they still carried on and it was really fun to see them laughing and enjoying their time.They kept on shouting “ STANLEY! STANLEY! ”And by the time they already crumbled down to the floor.But they tried to balance properly.

Me & Stanley were enjoying our time taking photos, when it came to the last one Miss Ashley made it very hard.After the last one they still wanted to do a bit more than have P.E after so we did it and then we went outside for P.E, we saw room 8 playing bullrush so Miss Ashley & Miss MOrrison thought it would be nice if we joined room 8 together so we did but some of us didn’t want to play with room 8.It was so hilarious, Everytime they would go to the next photo Miss would always tell us to Inhale & Exhale.Some of them were so flexible and upright like Merielle & Hiria.

Lydia,Hevani,Grace & Edith meticulously got most of my attention because they were boisterous. In P.E the classes together was extended.

The young naughty teenager

Miss Morrison's Injury

Intro - One Sunny Morning, A young gorgeous teacher named Miss Morrison had a day off for work, and she has always waited to go to the beach on her day off so she did.

P1 -  She also invited her best friend Miss Ashley they always hung out with each other they even treated each other like a sister, when Miss Ashley arrived at Miss Morrison’s house they talked for a bit then they started getting their things ready.

P2 - Then they finally arrived at the beach, Miss Morrison was too excited that she ran her fastest to get to the water before Miss Ashley does, when Miss Morrison got there she jumped and bombed into the water, then she hurt her feet as she landed on the rocks and she started crying then Miss Ashley ran quickly to Miss Morrison and looked at her foot and it was bleeding hardout so she called the ambulance.

P3 - The ambulance finally arrived and they checked her feet to see if it was ok and they said that it was but she just needed the swimming shoes so when she does another bomb her foot won’t bleed and won’t hurt.

Conclusion - They had a good time but just not in the start.

The Boy who cried 'Wolf'

The Boy who cried 'Wolf'

Once there was a shepherd boy. The boy was short and had brown hair. He had to look after a flock of sheep. One day, he felt unhappy  and decided to play a prank on the other people in the village. He shouted loudly, “Help! Wolf! Wolf!”
The villagers heard his cries and sprinted as fast as they could out of the village to help the shepherd boy. When they got to him, they asked, “Where is the wolf?”
The shepherd boy laughed loudly, “Ha, Ha, Ha! I tricked you all. I was only playing a prank on you all.”
A few days later, the sun was shining brightly and the young shepherd boy was bored again. The shepherd boy played the trick again.
He cried, “Help! Help! Wolf! Wolf!” Again, the villagers moved really fast up the hill to help him and again they found that the boy had tricked them. They were disappointed with him for being a naughty boy.A few days later, there was a bad weather. The boy watched a wolf actually walk into the field. The wolf attacked one sheep, and then another and another. It was bad. The shepherd boy ran towards the village saying loudly, “Help! Help! Wolf! Help! Somebody!”
The villagers heard his cries but they laughed because they thought it was just another prank.
The boy ran to the nearest villager and said, “A wolf is attacking the sheep. I lied before, but this time it is true!”
Finally, the villagers went to look. It was true. They could see the wolf running away and many dead sheep lying on the bright green grass.

We may not believe someone who often tells lies, even when he tells the truth that is why you shouldn’t lie because that thing might actually happen and people won’t believe you.

The Darkest Deepest Strongest Cave
One early morning there was a man named Jacob and he wanted to go scuba diving with his friends and exactly there was ten of them so when he went scuba diving with his friends they went somewhere deep and somewhere scary where no one has been before.

While they were so deep they saw a scary underwater cave where they kinda got scared but then…... one of Jacob's friend thought he was stronger and not afraid to go inside so he did go inside to prove that he was brave enough to go inside but then DUN DUN DUN  when he was going to go inside the cave he got sucked into the cave and the others tried to save them but then they got sucked inside the cave as well and they didn't know that there was a rock beside the cave that got pushed by the rough water and blocked the exit of the cave and now they got trapped inside the cave but all of them got stuck in the cave as well, the cave was very deep.

But lucky one of Jacob's friends had a waterproof phone that can call anyone so then they called another friend to go on a submarine and go into the deep sea and try to remove the rock from the exit.It took a while and it got dark then the submarine finally found them and since the submarine had a large strong claw  the submarine to the rock out of the way and one of his friends was looking around the cave and found a treasure chest while they were waiting that had heaps of treasure that he shared it with everyone to have some so then they hopped into the submarine and went to the surface of the water and said that they will never go scuba diving again.

Finally we arrived at the tip top factory, all the classes got to play on the park then all the room 8 students would have to go and explore what it looks like in the tip top factory, while room 8 was going to explore the tip top factory the rest of the classes had to go to the waiting room, while we were waiting we were playing games and stuff.Room 8 was coming back then it was our turn to go inside the tip top factory.

A lady came to lead and show us around the tip top factory her name was Pou, outside the tip top factory Pou showed us the old tip top trucks then she showed us the new tip top trucks.She took us inside and she told and showed us how they make the ice cream and the ingredients.

Then it came to the end and we watched a movie and we all got to pick a ice block to eat and we carried on watching the movie until it was finished, then we had to go back to school.


It was a fun trip I hope we go there again.

Hiria & Kika - Should there be more breaks at school

Should kids have more breaks at school
I think that they should have more breaks sometimes but the kids would not be learning nothing and they will have 3 hour of work and 3 hour of breaks.In my opinion i think that kids should not have go grades if they just have more time on breaks and less time on work.In my opinion i think it could be good if they have more times on work instead focus dumb things if could be bad for kids life not knowing nothing it just like not know how to spell apple they should have more of work but sore some breaks so their brains working for learning.

In my opinion i think it could be good if they have more times on work instead focus dumb things if could be bad for kids life not knowing nothing it just like not know how to spell apple they should have more of work but sore some breaks so their brains working for learning.
I think that they should have more breaks sometimes but  the kids would not be learning nothing and they will have 3 hour of work and 3 hour of breaks.

In my opinion i think that kids should not have go grades if they just have more time on breaks and less time on work.
On the other hands sometime people say that they will get better grades but how are they getting good grades if have more time on breaks and less time on work.
For Example

For Example if I was spending time on breaks in my opinion it would bad because my brain would not be working and I might not get good marks and I would be below on my report.

In my opinion I think it could be good if they have more times on work instead focus dumb things if could be bad for kids life not knowing nothing it just like not know how to spell apple they should have more of work but sore some breaks so their brains working for learning.

For Example If I could not know how to know how to spell apple and I will low on my report and instead going on work i must go on dumb thing and it not what I could do I could do something better than that.

Should Cellphones Be Allowed In School?

 Title: Cell Phones should be allowed in schools.
Introduction:
I think cell phones should be allowed in schools because we can take photos of our learning and put on our blog so the teacher won’t keep getting annoyed by taking photos of our learning for us and I think cell phones should be allowed in schools because when there is an emergency you can call the police and I think cell phones should be allowed in schools because you can use your phone if you don’t have a netbook.

First paragraph:Learning

O
I think cell phones should be allowed in schools because we can take photos of our learning and put on our blog so the teacher won’t keep getting annoyed by taking photos of our learning for us.
R
A reason is that if your teacher keeps on taking photos of your learning for you she might get bored and she might be tired from taking photos of your learning.
E
For example teachers will get so annoyed they might want to go home and they might feel like quitting.
O
I think cell phones should be allowed in schools because we can take photos of our learning and put on our blog so the teacher won’t keep getting annoyed by taking photos of our learning for us.

Second paragraph:Emergency/Safety

O
I think cell phones should be allowed in schools because when there is an emergency you can call the police.
R
A reason is when there is an emergency you can call the police.
E
For example if there is a fire and there is only kids no teacher with yous you can call the police.
O
I think cell phones should be allowed in schools because when there is an emergency you can call the police.

Third paragraph:Netbook Breakdown

O
I think cell phones should be allowed in schools because you can use your phone if you don’t have a netbook.
R
A reason is you can work on you phone and you can take photos of you work to blog it on your blog.
E
For example if your netbook breaks down you can continue working on your phone.
O
I think cell phones should be allowed in schools because you can use your phone if you don’t have a netbook.

Conclusion:

Summarise the 3 ideas
We think phones should be allowed in school because it helps with communication,learning and it is safe.We could contact our parents, we could use them as netbooks, and teachers won’t need to worry.Cause it’s safe.
