On Tuesday the 26th of June we went skydiving. When we got in the plane the person driving stopped in a place that he knew was going to be safe to land after we pulled the parachute. The first thing we had to do was get some protective clothes on. Then we had to put a breathing mask on.

After we got changed and put our masks on we had to walk by the door and then we had to turn around and jump out the door backwards. We had to jump backwards because it was the safest way to skydive. Before we jumped out I was feeling a bit nervous. When I jumped out the door I started to panic but then I realized that it wasn't that bad and it felt so much better than waiting by the door.

The wind that was bouncing off my face felt like a cold shower but just on my face. It was freezing! I was okay because I knew that when we would pull the parachute then we would slow down and it would feel much better. I just didn't think about the coldness and I was feeling okay.

When we were in the sky falling it was so fun especially when I felt the clouds because they felt like cotton candy. It took a while for us to almost reach the ground because of how high up we were. When we were close enough to the ground we had to pull our parachutes and when I did it yanked on me and pulled me up so I could go a bit slower. When I hit the ground I felt so relieved.

I loved going skydiving it was so much fun. I highly recommend it to anyone. As long as you aren’t scared of heights I think you would love it. If you get a chance to go I hope you have fun.

Please leave a positive comment and I hope you like my recount of when I went skydiving.

Animation Writing

This term we have been learning about the forces of flight. I have been animating a tennis ball that is using the four forces: Lift, thrust, drag and gravity/weight.  In my animation a tennis ball is flying past lots of things. The tennis ball is staying up in the air because the lift is more than the weight/gravity. It is going forward and staying like that because the thrust is more than the drag. Thrust makes things go faster and go forward. Lift helps the object stay up in the air,. Drag makes sure thing don't go to fast it also makes things go slower and gravity/weight causes things to stay down at earth. It also makes sure that the object doesn’t go to high in the sky. In the first part of my animation there and two sisters playing a game of tennis. There names are Jane and Eva. When Jane hits the ball again Eva couldn’t get it so it went flying past all of my backgrounds. I had lots of backgrounds I hope you enjoyed my animation thanks for watching my animation feel free to leave a positive comment.

Matariki Recount

On friday morning it was matariki day. We first started the day of with our assembly. Then when the assembly was finished we came back to class and found out which group we were in. A few days before matariki we got to choose what group we wanted to be in and we had for choices. My first choice was Cooking next sport after that it was Movie making then it was arts and crafts. I got picked to be in Movie Making and it was kinda disappointing because I really wanted to be in cooking but Movie Making sounded kinda fun.

We Were Making Movies in the green screen room and when I got there a lot of people were already there but we were still waiting for the rest of the people to come so we were waiting for a while. Then when everyone were there we got to read the script that we were going to act out and the name of the movie was stars in their eyes.

The first thing we needed to do was we had to find out who everyone wanted to be and I wanted to be god of the wind so I got to be god of the wind after that we went to get our costumes and they were the senior kapa haka clothes. The first scene didn’t include the costumes but on the next scene we needed the costumes. I was the person that created the seven stars. The stars were made because the god of the wind was angry because two people couldn’t be in love.

We got to film the whole day except for when it was morning tea and lunchtime. We couldn’t finish in time so we did not show it in assembly. When we were at assembly we were gonna play a game while we were waiting or everyone else to come but they all came before we could start the game but it was okay. We got to see all different kinds of creations and movies but sadly we couldn’t. Show our movie. It was so fun we almost finished our movie but we haven't yet so we might finish it soon and when we do it's gonna be on the PENN. I can’t wait to see what our Movie is going to look like.

The Bucket

One day there were lots of animals and they were a Donkey, rabbits, birds, bees, a bull and a roster. They were walking in a big group trying to find some water to drink. They were walking for a very long time. When they were walking they saw lots of different things. Every time they went past somewhere they checked to see what it was but they only checked to see if it was water. The first place they walked past was a farm that only had pigs so they checked it but it had no water. The next place they saw was a school the didn't have much kids there but there was a water fountain but they didn't know how to work it so they left. Then after that they went past an abandoned house and nothing was in there so they did not want to check because some of them were scared and some were just so tired they couldn't walk. So the animals sat down for a while then they new they had to keep going so they got back up. After that they walked past the last place they forgot to check but the only animal that didn't forget to check were the bees. So they checked and there it was, water the bees were so relieved but they knew that they had to get all of the other animals so the bees ran to the rest of the animals and got them to come so they all ran as fast as they could. The bees drank some water first then the birds, after the birds it was the rabbit next the rosters then the donkey and last the bull. As soon as they were all finished drinking the water they all walked back to there home but before that they went to the donkeys farm and they were so happy to finally have some water but then all of the animals wanted some more food and they all thought that they were gonna have to go for another trip but luckily the farm carer gave some food to all of the animals then after that they all went to there own home the donkey stayed at his farm the bull also stayed at the farm the bees went to there beehive the rabbit went back to its hole the rosters went to the darn and the bird went to there bird house.

Today we had to show what we can write in 40 minutes without talking to others. we were able to work quietly to complete the task.

Problem solving

this is my math for today.

Water jet-packing

Once upon a time there lived 2 girls named Riley and Sonia . One afternoon at 2:00 riley and sonia went water jetpacking at the beach. When they got there they ran straight into the water and flew of into the sky they were having so much fun. Sonia was flying low and she was almost was touching the surface of the sea. She was getting closer and closer to the surface the longer she was flying around. They were having so much fun until sonia’s water-jet pack ran out of water and they didn’t know what to do. Then they went back to shore and tried to figure out a way to fill it back up they were thinking for a very long time then Riley found out a great way to fill it backup and she filled it back up with the sea water, it worked as soon as they filled it backup they went straight back to playing around as if nothing happened.

They loved going jet-packing and they were determined to do this everyday accept that they don't want to ran out of water again so now every time they go water jet-packing they make sure that there jet-packs are completely full.

Gravity Experiment

Miss Moala and Miss west did an experiment. They did it with one basketball and one small Christmas decoration ball Miss Moala took the small ball and Miss west took the heavy ball because she thought it was gonna drop first and that is also what Miss Moala thought that as well.

I thought the the big ball was gonna hit the ground first because the dig ball is heaver then the small ball, and because the big ball is so heavy, I thought that it would have more gravity pulling it down but then I did some research and the smaller ball actually would hit first because there is more air pushing the small ball down and less air pushing upwards on the ball.

Miss Moala and Miss west dropped the two balls to see which one would hit the ground first. It was the small ball but when it hit the ground it shattered everywhere so they don't really know who won. So they did it again but this time the small ball was a baseball so it won't shatter when it hits the ground.
When they tried to do it the second time the small ball hit the ground first so the tried it again but this time Miss Moala dropped it both and it hit the same time so it was a bit weird but Miss Moala probably didn’t drop it at the same time or it wasn't the same length of the ground so maybe that was it.

The reason why they hit at the same time is that the force of gravity tries to make everything go downwards at the same time so no matter how light or heavy it is. that means if you dropped a basketball and a baseball at the same time from the same height they will hit the ground at the same time 

The way to do this is that you have to have a friend and two chairs and you and your friend each have to have either a big ball or a small ball and you have to try and drop it at the same height and at the same time and see witch one hits the ground first and what ever won hits the ground first wins depending on if your playing a game or doing an experiment.

When they were driving to the beach there was a boulder in the way so the tried to move it. They tried everything but then they found a way to do it they were very happy.

After that it was team twos turn and they were making a lot of noise because they were on wheels and they were having lots of fun but there was someone working she could not work because of all the noise that they were making. She asked them to stop so they were very sorry and listened but then those people came back but in a different type of thing but it still had wheels on it. The person was still very angry so she told them to stop again and they did. Then they were all happy and that was team 2’s video.

Then it was team 3 turn and they were at a playground and they were just having so much fun and they were dancing and playing on the swing, slide, and the monkey bars and the song that they were dancing to was a song that was actually made from some tongan people and it was so cool that was there video.

DMIC math problem week 7.

This is our problem that we had to solve

Today we were learning to use add, don't subtract to get the answer to our math problem. I found out that I was good at our maths problem and found it easy but the thing I wasn't very good at was explaining what I did to work out the problem  without my teachers help. I would love to get better at that.

After that we went to the big tent witch is called the marquee and in there we found out what we were doing next and we were doing the games in room 8,7 and 6 using cups then when we did that we went to the waterside and we all lined up and went sliding then after that we grabbed the hose and wet miss west, Mr summertime and miss Kathey it was so fun and funny to, then we had two more things which was free time and we played in the hall on roller skates, skateboards, scooters, table tennis and basketball it was so fun, the next rotation was on the next day and it was kayaking it was so cool me and my brother kayaked together and we almost beat the people in the speed boat because we were having a race it was amazing then we had another game and we played soccer with a workout ball and we were on bikes it was so funny I loved camp.

2018 writing

this is what I am doing for writing today.

Thursday, 8 February 2018



We are learning about how to be R-E-S-P-E-C-T-F-U-L and what it means to be respectful.
You can be respectful if you walk past something that is untidy or needs if someone needs
help you help them without someone asking you to.
You can tidy your house so your mum and dad won't have to do it after and they will thank you but if they don't that is okay because you don’t clean the house for a prize you clean it to help your mum or dad.
If you respect someone they will respect you too but if you are disrespectful to someone then they will disrespect you so be careful with what you choose to do with your action because if you do something itwill come back and another way is to pick up rubbish and
put it in the rubbish bin so you could protect our environment when you do that you are looking
after animals like fish birds and you are also looking after people as well .

summer learning journey day 5

Activity 1

When I graduate from college my ideal choice would be to study at university. At university, I would want to study Creative Writing in order to fulfil my dream of becoming a doctor.
If I succeed in getting my bachelors and masters degree, I would then start just giving everyone health tests then I would start small and begin to build on it day by day. Once the right day comes I'll try to be a doctor and I would be getting calls from all over the world to see if I could help them when they're sick. Being recognized in other countries would be my ultimate goal, but I don't want to have high hopes for my future. Things can always go wrong.

Just starting to crawl

Say something, I'm giving up on you

I'm sorry that I couldn't get to you
Anywhere I would've followed you

Say something, I'm giving up on you

And I will swallow my pride

You're the one that I love
And I'm saying goodbye Say something, I'm giving up on you And I'm sorry that I couldn't get to you And anywhere, I would have followed you Oh, oh, oh, oh say something, I'm giving up on you Say something, I'm giving up on you, Say something

One day a mysterious issue occurred on the island of Motu Nui. It turned out a demigod named Maui had stolen the heart of Te Fiti. The heart was tefeti, tefeti is the guardians of the beautiful trees and grass, the heart is what keeps the islands alive but when Maui took the heart from tefeti the darkness started to spread from island to island until every island are covered with darkness. But Moana found out that Maui had stolen it so she knew she had to get the heart and put it back in tefeti, but as Moana sails along the ocean to find the heart she ends up stranded on a small island. On that island, she found Maui, after a long time of arguing they finally came to an agreement. So together they sailed across the ocean to find the heart of Te Fiti. Along the way they faced monsters. Each obstacle that got in their way only brought them closer together. But in the end, they fight a huge monster named Teka. Moana realised that the heart belonged to Teka so she tried to find some way to restore it without getting killed. Moana sings a song that goes like this
(I have crossed the horizon to find you
I know your name
They have stolen the heart from inside you
But this does not define you
This is not who you are
You know who you are),
then Teka remembers who she is and she lets Moana put the heart back in her and tefeti rises once again. Tefeti gives Maui a gift and he gets a new fish hook and he is so grateful next tefeti gives Moana a gift and she got a boat to sail back to her home then Moana gets back to her island and her parents are so proud of her for saving their island after that they all get there boats and they sail and Moana teaches then how to do it then they live happily ever after.

Image result for golden letter envelope
Dear Principle,
I'm writing this letter because I would really like to make a change in our school. I think we should add more things to do because the 4 things we get to do when we're finished our work are a little boring, we're doing it every day and that just makes school boring. So, I think we should add more to do after we do our work. Add more interesting things no school has ever done, and please don't give us boring work things after our work, please.
