WLJ Day 7 Activity 2 (LAST DAY)

I think that napping is really relaxing because you get to let out all the stress and tiredness.

WLJ Activity 1 Day 7 (LAST DAY)

To keep my neighborhood clean I would do...

1: I'd go around every morning and pick up rubbish around my neighborhood for half and hour. So that every morning people can see that the neighborhood is BEAUTIFUL.

2: I'd go around the neighborhood every morning and evening and put up posters saying Keep NZ clean and stop LITTERING. So that it will encourage people to keep NZ clean and try to start picking up rubbish and stop littering.

3: I'd go around the neighborhood  picking up rubbish and also make a protest to make a cleaning NZ group.

WLJ Activity 2 Day 6

1st Pick: I pick Weave jam Because I think that it is cool to weave. I also want to try out weaving because I have never weaved before.

2nd Pick: I pick Ngā Kai o Matariki: Celebrating Maori Cuisine. I pick this option because I think it would be cool to celebrate the Maori cuisine it would be lovely. I also love cooking and tasting new things.

Last pick: For the last pick I have chosen to pick Matariki fireworks. I have chosen this because I really love the scenery of fireworks and I also like all the colors and patterns of the fireworks. I also like how it kind of looks like shooting stars.

WLJ Activity 2 Day 5

This is my DLO about my chosen person that was famous in NZ.

WLJ Activity 1 Day 5

"OH NO they've left me!!!" I was all alone in the Lewis Pass Scenic Reserve. "What am I going to do" I thought. I thought that I should try and keep walking to see if I find them stopped looking at a fascinating thing. I kept on walking and walking but I didn't seem to find my group. I decided that I should walk back to reception to ask to make a call out for my group to stop where they are and tell us where they are with the tour guide's walky talkie. They did a call out but it had seemed that my group had already left the reserve. I'm like "WWHHAATT". How am I supposed to get back to them I don't have any money. But then our tour guide took me back to my group at Nelson.

WLJ Bonus Activity Day 4

I think that fisherman should be banned from fishing at Farewell Spit. I think this because they have been killing our native hector's dolphins and every year there's been hectors dolphins getting killed. I think that that is not good because the hector's dolphin's are native and if they are getting killed every year then soon in the future they will be extincted.

WLJ Activity 1 Day 4

What the people of Picton had to do was, they had to drape drape t-shirts, towels and sarongs over the beached whales. They also had to try and use pots,bowls and more to carry water and drape it over the beached whales. There were also two people who had noticed it at first and that was a lady and a German tourist, the German tourist noticed it and rang the department of conversations then the news reporters.

WLJ Activity 2 Day 3

I think that New Zealand should be predator free. I think this because innocent farmers have to pay about $35 million dollars a year because of the possum damage. I also think that possums should go back to their natural home where they belong so that they don't cause trouble here in New Zealand. I also think that they shouldn't be in New Zealand because they have been causing a lot of trouble so if they are gone and New Zealand is predator free then there won't be any predator trouble for the government to fix.

WLJ Activity 1 Day 3

The animal to adopt that I have chosen is a Kea. A Kea is a apart of the family Strigopidae, it's scientific name is Nestor notabilis. It is found in forested and alpine regions of the South Island of the New Zealand. They are about 48cm (19 in) long. Most of the Kea is olive-green with a brilliant orange under it's wings. It has large, narrow and curved grey-brown upper beak, and did you know the Kea is the worlds only alpine parrot. The Kea's omnivorous diet includes carrion, but it mostly includes roots, leaves, berries, nectar and insects.

The Kea nests in burrows or crevices among the roots of the tree. I have chosen the Kea because they are mostly known for their intelligence and curiosity, both vital to their survival in a harsh mountain environment. Like did you know that the Kea can solve logical puzzles such as pushing and pulling things in a certain order to get to food, and will work together to archive a certain objective.

WLJ Activity 1 day 1

One interesting fact that I learnt was...

  • Most kiwi's are discovering a lot of unusual things and then using it to invent their own thing. E.g Electric fences.

  • That maori people voyaged across the sea in their waka's, and now that's the identity of New Zealand. Because they voyaged across the sea and found NZ.

  • New Zealand's European pioneers were brave, rugged and independent. But before they could build farms and community's they had to clear the land, A painstaking and also a dangerous activity. Their isolation and exposure to the elements forced the early New Zealanders to become hardy and multi-skilled.

Back in Da day production

On the 27th of June the year 5 & 6 extension group created their own production. It was called Back In Da Day, it was about how 7 ordinary kids got traveled back to the past and the future. They created this all on their own, but they had some tips from some of their teachers in the class.

Their were 5 groups that had a job to do to make the production happen. And I was in one of those groups, which was the costume and makeup designers. The other groups were Script writers, Set/Props designers, Light and sound designers and the dance choreographers.

We also had actors and main actors. I was a actor and a main actor as well. My name was Charlotte and Sarah. Charlotte is a friend of the kids, and Sarah is one of the mum's in the 60's scene. I wasn't supposed to be Sarah but the girl for Sarah wasn't here.

But we performed in front of our whole school. At first I was really nervous, but when we got into the production I got braver. Then at the end I felt really chilled and happy.

Production Reflection

At the production I had so much fun participating in the production as a friend and a mum. If I could participate in the production again I know that I need to work on talking louder so everyone can hear me. I also need to work on learning my lines better and saying them with more enthusiasm. I would also like to try another job in the production because I felt like I needed to try another option. In the production my favorite part was when the beautiful Tongan girls came out and danced, because they danced very gracefully and precise. I also thought that I needed to learn the timing of my lines because I got a bit mixed up with the timing.

DIY Flex-tangle

Today at home I made a flex-tangle. A flex-tangle is paper toy that is very satisfying, what you have to do is just move the toy in a circle motion. The materials that we used was a flex-tangle template, scissors, coloring pens or pencils and glue.

Then we just decorated the spots that need decorating. Then once we had decorated it we had to cut around the lines. I was so excited to make this satisfying toy because it was going to be fun to play with.

Once we had colored and cut the template, we had to fold along the other lines. Then once we had folded all the creases we then had to glue along the glue points. Then we had to put the right pieces onto the glue points. When It was done then we started to play with it and it was so satisfying.

Here is a photo of me holding the flex-tangle.

I designed my own kayak

Walt: make connections with what we already know with what we read.
I have chosen to use a Slalom K1 kayak. I coloured it like a bright blue so that it stands out. I also added some black flowers so that it is seen on the blue. I think that kids who love kayaks that are bright with outstanding colours and patterns will buy this kayak. I think they would buy this kayak because it has a bright background colour and then it has another plain coloured pattern that stands out against the background. So I think this kayak suits kids who like plain coloured patterns against bright coloured objects.

Task Description: For this task we had to design our own kayak. After we designed our kayak using the template we had to screenshot it and insert it here on my blog. After that we had to describe our kayak and write who we think would buy it.

My waka task

Walt: make connections.

The most best mixture of white and milk chocolate

Walt: express our personal opinions.

The chocolate that I ate was a cadbury chocolate that was the best mixture of white and milk chocolate I have ever tasted

This chocolate is a chocolate from the chocolate brand Cadbury. It costs $3.99, this chocolate has white chocolate on the top and milk chocolate on the bottom. This chocolate is called top deck.

This chocolate smelt like a nice mixture of white and milk chocolate, it was kind of like a chocolate that was meant to be mixed not separate. It tasted like the best mixture of milk and white that was ever made, because when I ate the chocolate it was like milk chocolate and white chocolate mixed together and when it melted in my mouth it was so delicious. When I looked at the top deck chocolate it looked so weird at first but when I ate it wasn’t weird it was yum. When I felt the chocolate it felt really smooth and when I rubbed it little bits of the chocolate came off. I so loved the chocolate that I ate.

To improve this chocolate I would have a little bit more milk chocolate so that the white and the milk chocolate would be equal. I would also like it to be a bit more bigger so that you could taste more of the flavour. But I also want it to be milk chocolate the white chocolate in the middle.

I would recommend this to you. I would recommend this because it is really yummy, and when it’s in you mouth it is really creamy different. I would also recommend it because if you would like to try a nice mixture of white and milk chocolate then you should try this yummy chocolate. But I would also recommend that you eat it little by little if you like it so much.
This is my made up wrapper for my chocolate.

Then Mrs Stickland told us that we had to go for her each time we needed to do the next step. Then me and Syriah went to go and get the ice, then we had to go get the salt. Once we did those two things we went and put milk in another bag, with also sugar and vanilla essence.

Castaway story

Walt: Write from the 1st person.

I just washed up on an beautiful island, it was so scary. I was soaking wet, and I was so cold I felt so lonely. I decided to explore this beautiful and huge island to find help, but it was no use. What should I do I’m lonely?, I’m so hungry.

I thought to myself I should probably make me some shelter to sleep. So I decided to explore the island for some resources. While I was walking around I found some fronds on the ground I also found some sticks, small big and thick sticks so that was good. Suddenly I found some very strong flax. So I thought I had enough resources. So I went back to the raft, and used a lot of sticks to hold up my leaves. So after my sticks were standing up I next then tied the leaves together with the flax. And then I tied the leaves and the sticks together so that the leaves act as the roof.

So then I made my dry and big shelter, so then I went to look for some materials to help me catch some food. So I got some big sharp sticks, pointy rocks and also some flax so I can catch the fish. But then I used my flax,stick and a shell to make a spear for me to catch a fish, by using the flax to tie the shell to the stick. So then I got my spear and went to the sea to look for some fish. But then I found a good fish in the sea and so I waited for the right moment, then I stabbed the fish with my sharp stick. Then I went and took my fish under my big and dry shelter so that I could make a fire with sticks and rocks to cook my fish, while my fish was cooking I went and took my rock and my spear to get some coconuts and mangos. By the time I got back from looking for some fruits and coconuts I saw that my fish was cooked so then I used a big frond to make a plate for my fish. Then I took my sharp and thin rock to cut up my fish for me to eat.

Few hours later, I decided that I’ve been stranded on this lonely and beautiful island to long so I must create a signal for people to see me so I can get rescued from this huge island. So I decided that in the daytime that I should lay out a lot of rocks to make the signal of SOS, and then at night time I will make a  huge fire for people flying in the air to see. For the fire I needed to find some sticks, rocks and green leaves, when I found these materials I then put the rocks in a circle then I put two sticks next to each other then i put some green leaves in between the sticks. Then I used another stick to rub in between the sticks where the green leaves were.

My signals have been on for like 2 days and still I’m not rescued why oh why? So I decided to go back to my shelter and have a quick nap so I can have more energy for my signals. 1 hour later, I’m awake now let’s get my signals ready again. When suddenly I heard a helicopter but luckily  my signals were done so they would’ve seen it. “HEEEELLPP” I yelled, and luckily they saw my signal and they came lower to rescue me. “YAY” I’m rescued” I said. I was so relieved I got off that beautiful but lonely island, and also I was happy that I could eat whatever I wanted instead of always eating fish and crab. So I was happy that I was home.

Task Description:
I had to write a story about me being stranded of a beautiful island. So what I mean is I had to write a story about me being in the movie Castaway. So I had to write a story about it then post it on my blog with a title, WALT, task description and also labels.
