EXTC - Museum Trip Refelction

Yesterday the year 5,6,7 and 8 extension group went on a trip to the Auckland museum. We went to the museum so that we can learn about the pasifika exhibition. I had a lot of fun there because we got to touch some old but yet precious pasifika objects.

One of my favorite parts was making our own storage holder so it was a piece of foam that we put a object on and made a hole so that we could put the object inside and keep it safe.

I also liked that we got to have free pizza for lunch. I liked it because the pizza was nice and hot. I also liked it because it was delicious and cheesy. Another part I liked was that we got to go into the earthquake house. I liked it because we all had fun inside. But it was a bit scary for some people and I started laughing when it started.

Free Writing - Hunt For The Herd

The fawn was left behind and the jaguars and deer's were very far away. The fawn finally stood up but was badly damaged. The deer was grieving in pain as one of his legs were badly grazed. The fawn tried to walk and look for some help so that he can heal his leg and get back to his herd.

I would like to say a huge thank you to all the helpers and people that made this event happen.

How to save money

Money is precious. Sometimes you would have the money but then again you wouldn’t. Here are some tips on “How easy it is to save money”.

First of all one way to save money is to stick to a budget. You should stick to a budget so that you would spend only a certain amount of money. While on a budget its best to stay on the budget always you will keep spending, and the level of your money will grow lower. And then at the end of the day if you have sticked to the budget it will help you with your money problems.

Another way to save money is to buy things you need instead of things you want. This will help because, first of all it will save you money and when your broke then eventually you will still have the things you need. And plus the best things you will need in an emergency is essentials and that is why you should by things you need. And once you have used this tip you will still have money and you will not have to struggle.

Another tip is to buy cheap things. So you can buy things you want but it will be cheap, So as a result you will still have money. So it's best if you buy the cheapest version of the things you need or want, because at least you will still have money to survive.

Lastly, you should sell the things you don’t need. For example you could have a garage sale and sell all the things you don’t need. And there are two great reasons in the end if you use this tip. Such as, you will have more space in your house. And the second reason is you will still have enough money.

So in the end if you stick to a budget, purchase the important things, buy cheap items and host a garage sale you will have enough money to provide the essentials to survive. And as a result you will still have the things you want and also the things you need. And you will especially have enough money.

What does group work look like?

Pascal's Triangle

Pascal’s Triangle

We are learning about Pascal’s triangle. The patterns I saw is that if you color in the odd numbers they make different size triangles. Another pattern I saw is that you can double the numbers to find the missing numbers. I also saw that there was a whole line of one's on each side of the triangle. On each row we had to count up the total of numbers in that row. While doing this I learnt more about Pascal’s triangle.

Extension Trip - Digital Nations 2030

On Monday the 19th of February the year 7 & 8 extension group went on a trip to Cordis, because we were attending an event called “Digital Nations 2030”. There we got to code with makey makey and more. There were two schools that were lucky enough to go this event and that was Pt England and Christ The King.

While we were there I had so much fun, mostly because we got a lot of prizes. My favorite part of the event was trying out the quiz because I think that it was really fun but then it was also hard at the same time, so it gave me a challenge.

After this event I felt like I knew more about coding. I thought this event was amazing and I would love to experience it again. I would like to say a huge thank you to Zoe and all the people that invited us to this event I loved it so much.

The treaty of Waitangi

            Te Tiriti o Waitangi
We are learning to describe the history of the Treaty of Waitangi and analyse the effect that
this document has on us in 2018

Before the Treaty (Use this site to help you)

When did the Māori arrive in New Zealand? 1642

What was life like for Māori before the Treaty? Before the treaty the maori people used to look
after their territories and lived close to the land spiritually and physically.

What were Pakeha doing in New Zealand before the Treaty? Some were causing fights and some
were trying to spread religion/god

What is a treaty? A Treaty is an agreement between the British Crown and iwi and hapu in
New Zealand

The signing of the Treaty (see this page)

Why did some Māori agree to sign the Treaty? So the whalers would stop killing and fighting and it
was a problem to the maori. And the pakeha were doing bad things so the maori wanted a treaty.

Why did the British want a Treaty? So they could take control of NZ

When was the Treaty signed? The treaty was signed on the 6th of Feb 1840

Who translated the Treaty into Te Reo Māori? The person who translated the treaty was William

Swift playground reflection

While I was using Swift Playground I thought it was really fun. I learnt a lot of things like what Commands and Sequences are. Like first of all sequences are a order which the commands are given. I also learnt about commands which is something/someone tells you to do something and you have to do it. It’s kind of like instructions you have to do.
