Summer learning journey 2018/2019

For the past few years, students in Manaiakalani schools have had the chance to take part in the Summer or Winter Learning Journey. Rachel from the University of Auckland and her team create tasks for students to work on during their holidays. During the last school holidays I took part in the Summer Learning Journey and I created lots of posts for my blog. It was a lot of fun and kept me busy. I ended up receiving a certificate in assembly for my efforts. It also helped me to improve my writing skills as I created over 30 posts for my blog just in January alone.

Write like Paul Jennings

WALT: Structure a recount correctly

One day a family got back from holiday and is heading back to there rightful home. In there family is a mum who’s name is Hermione and the dad who’s name is Jake. They have a son James and James little sister Rachel. James has a wife Moriah, Moriah and James have 2 twins and there names are Hanna and Harold.

Ronald, James and Rachel had to go on a different plane because they couldn’t fit on the plane that there family was on.When they got on the plane it took about 3 minutes until they left the ground and about half an hour until they hit the storm. They thought the storm was just a normal storm but the storm actually opened a portal and they flew inside it. When the plane got inside the portal it time traveled the plane and all the people in it to 5 years later but the people in the plane had no idea. When they landed they were all waiting then someone shouted “What’s happening” then the pilot said “ your flight was booked in march 2013” then Rachel shouted “ yes we know but what does that have to do with keeping us here”, And the pilot said “Today is but today is February 2018” Everyone was shocked but it didn’t change anything so they waited, waited, waited and waited.

They waited for 3 hours until there family got to the place where everyone had to wait. James wife Moriah Was bursting into tears when she got there and as she was crying she looked at James and said “you haven’t aged a day” then she looked at Rachel and whispered “ you look exactly the same“ and lastly she looked at Ronald and said “you look so young how is this possible!!”. The next day they were walking past a cage and a voice inside Rachel head told here to set them free she couldn’t resist because the more she waited the louder the voice got so she opened the cage and there were two dos that were trapped there. She was so confused and this went on for day and days. She couldn’t take it anymore so she went home and they studied What had happened it took 3 months but they found out how to travel back in time and fix everything.

When they found out what to do they had to wait for a storm to happen, It took 3 days but it came around and they saw something I’m the distant so they ran there and saw a portal. They jumped in and they were back at the airport. They were so happy to get there life back. Then they were happy and lived normally.

My About me for 2019

WALT: write about ourselves on the internet in a cyber-smart way.
Kia ora and welcome to my blog. My name is Evangeline but people call me Eva for short and I go to Point England school. This year I am a year 6, my teacher’s name is Mr Goodwin and I'm in room 7. I have 3 sisters and 1 brother, my older sister comes to this school and she is a year 7, my older brother goes to Sacred Heart College and this is his first year and my twin baby sisters go to kindergarten.

I enjoy going to the pools more than I like going to the beach because you can have inside or outdoor pools, I don’t like going to the beach very much because it can only be outdoors and also because you get very sandy once you get out of the water. My favorite sport is tag or netball I like netball because you can get fitter and have fun at the same time. I also have been playing netball for 5 years and we have been undefeated for the first 4 years. I like tag because it's not as rough as rugby or league but it is a similar game. I like to eat foods like butter chicken or curry because sometimes curry can be spicy and I love spicy food. I like butter chicken because it can be sweet, sour and spicy. I don't have much hobbies but I like to jump on my trampoline.

I have lots of friends and there names are Jane, Oalii, Madi, Norah-jade, Mia, Sivaenah and Zoe. My friends are very kind and they are also very funny. If me or my friends get bored we can use anything around us to keep us entertained. I have amazing friends.
Task Description:
For this task we used a template given to us by Mr Goodwin to write about ourselves for the about me section on our blog. We had to think about our different interests, hobbies and information about ourselves in a way that is Cyber-smart.

Its the end of the SUMMER LEARNING JOURNEY!!!

What is one thing that you learned from participating in the Summer Learning Journey program this year?
I learnt a lot about animals the thing I learnt was that lots of animals are endangered and people can help save them.

What is one thing that surprised you? The thing that surprised me the most was that I could keep up with my blogging but at the same time I got to play around as well.

What is one thing that concerned or upset you? One thing that upset me was that the summer leaning journey has come to an end and one thing that concerned me was that I might not have finished the summer learning journey.

What is one thing that you (or your family) can do, moving forward, to help protect our natural environment? One thing I can do is I can go around to different locations to pick up rubbish. Another thing I can do is I can give up anything plastic related.

I hope you enjoyed all my blog post this holiday Please leave a positive comment on all my blogs if you haven't already. Make sure to include what your favorite blog post is.

similarities and differences Summer Learning Journey

On your blog, list the three animals that you have chosen and then compare and contrast them. How are they similar? How are they different? At the bottom of you post, tell us which of the three animals you would most like to adopt.

Lion cub African Elephant calf Giraffe
The similarities between the Lion cub and the African Elephant calf is that they are both babies/kids and they are both very very cute. Another similarity is that when they are both babies/kids they are harmless. The differences between the Lion cub and the African Elephant calf is that Lions eat meat like other animals and Elephants eat plants.
The similarities between the Giraffe and the African Elephant calf is that they are both majestic creatures that roam the earth. The differences between them is that the African Elephant can be harmful but only if you give them a reason to be harmful but the Giraffe is not harmful at all.
The similarities between the Giraffe and the Lion cub is that Giraffes and the Lions are the same color The differences between these animals is that the lion is a very harmful creature but the giraffes are a very harmless creature. Some    more differences is that the lion it much more smaller then the giraffe.

Helping earth Summer Learning Jouerney

Every year we celebrate World Environment Day in June. On World Environment Day we do what we can to protect our planet. This year the focus is on reducing the use of plastic bags and water bottles. Watch this Environment Day video to learn more about it!
What could you and your family do to protect the planet?
On your blog tell us three things that you could do to help save the planet.

One thing I would do would be to give up plastic bags because plastic bags are one of the worst plastic inventions ever made and that is because when people use plastic bags they drop it on the ground and they don't know that throwing plastic bags on the ground could lead to an animals death.

The next thing I would do would be to give up plastic bottles and plastic straws because it will do a lot of harm to any type of animal the eats it.

The last thing I would do would be to go to different locations and to pick up as much rubbish as we can and if we all do that in different locations our planet will be much cleaner and animals population will increase and not decrease.
