Don't mess with a little girl - WALT work in buddies and create narrative stories with the backwards S method.

Don't mess with a little girl
Once upon a time at exactly dusk til dawn there  was a magical island beyond the clouds; around the corner of this beautiful whereabout was a dark haunted cloud filled with all of the rejections for the earth and making it a wonderful place to be. Down the further end of the cloud was a rusty cave that was restricted for all creatures and Humans. In this cave was a family filled with flying, magical, fire breathing dragon.

One day when the family had left the eldest dragon alone, he kidnapped a little girl from the other dimension and decided to put a  magic spell on her but little did he know he had read it wrong and accidentally alternated himself into a...GORILLA (“DUN DUN DUN”) as he turned into a gorilla the girl and himself descended for the clouds to the real world. When they had roughly fallen, they both fell in different positions of the city ‘egvc’, when the gorilla fell he landed on his head and forgot a plethora of memories. 3 years later the gorilla was balling his eyes out as he lost everything on the night that he tried to to turn the girl into a gorilla but he transformed into a gorilla, and he could not ask for any help because they would never trust a gorilla, when it came to a dead end the gorilla just kept wishing that he would just rest for eternity.

One day he was walking like a sloth and a girl recognized his eyes and poked him in the heart with her lollipop stick and out came a huge fly which turned out to be the dragon but the dragon had better powers now because he can transform into anything and after the girl saved his life he decided to apologize for kidnapping her and he changed his personality to goodness instead of evil and he persuade his family to do the same thing, the family and the girl were friends and had parties together.

So the end of the story was his family and himself were good, well… for now!    

An old lady situation

An old lady situation

An old lady (Marge) and her three stunning granddaughters (Shay, Jess, and Ella) were all going for a lovely stroll near the ‘Waikato” forestry.

When the time had taken over to a fork in a road, the old lady had realised that she forgot her glasses and she went left as her granddaughter went right. When the granddaughters had realised that their grandma wasn’t there they searched about an hour and a half just look for there grandma.

When Shay, Jess, and Ella couldn't find their grandma the eldest shay decided to demand the police to come; when the police had arrived they went straight to the forestry and out of nowhere they saw a cold, devastated, demented old lady hugging a tree, and then the daughters and cop zoomed straight to her and the old lady uttered “I lost my glasses and turned on the wrong footpath” and Ella replied with “Here are your Glasses”, and then the cop went back to the station while the grandma and granddaughters went home and had a hot chocolate with some delicious caramel tim tams.

The end.

WALA: the history of Hip Hop

WALA: the history of Hip Hop!
The main point of Hip Hop includes 4 unique categories that create Hip Hop and what it is. The 4 elements are things that don't seem that familiar to Hip Hop but when you learn about the history of it and really read about it; These are the names of the elements:

  1. Art - Graffiti, Graffiti is an art to express how you are feeling through spray paint.
  2. Dance - The dance is called Break dancing but their are many names like: Breaking, B girls, and B boys.
  3. Music - The music for Hip Hop can be anything but the main type of music are... Dj and Remixes.
  4. Poetry -  So this is the most confusing element but it makes a lot of sense when you find the meaning behind this which is...rap and if you are still confused poetry is like a less fun version of rap, which is why rap is in the 4 elements.

Why homework is... IMPORTANT!

Why homework is IMPORTANT!

You're probably thinking to yourself “Why do I have to do homework??”, well homework is very important and I am going to tell you why!

In my opinion, I used to think that homework was the absolute WORST!, but then I thought to myself about “Homework; why is it important?”, which leads us to our first  reason and example why homework is important. The first reason homework is important is something called… RECAP. To be honest you always need to recap your work because when you don’t recap you will learn something but also loose it, for example when you learn something brand new it gets stuck in your mind and you just need to get it out of your brain like imagine what that learning ability is say… “PLEASE LET ME OUT, EDITH NEEDS TO LEARN SOMETHING NEW!”, see imagine how much trouble they're probably having to get the information you think you don’t know.

For the next reason is… boredom. Homework can actually be fun if try to put in some free time; for example if you are a busy person I understand because I am a person that has to go to sports training, but if you are a genius or possibly just someone to finish their work fast you can use that free time to finish off homework. On the other hand, if you are a person with no after school activities and a slow finisher, you are pretty lucky because if you get so bored you can just ask your teacher for homework on what you're stuck on.

The final statement of why homework is important is because when you do homework you can develop new skills so it is going to be a whole clump of easier work for you and it is going to be easier for paying attention and making much more fun and mind blowing, apart of this reason is finding older work less diligent, and you can develop enough skills to save the world and do beautiful things to it by sharing your knowledge to the world to make their lives absolutely… AMAZING!!!.


Therefore these are my statements of why homework is important.

Tip Top recount

Tip Top :D

Today the middle syndicate (Rm5, Rm 6, Rm 8, and If course Rm 7) went to the Tip Top factory in Auckland, NZ. They firstly had 1 hour to finish off left over work but we are going to skip to the start of the trip.

“I can’t WAIT!, I’m going to Tip Top today!”, I thought to myself while I was approaching to the door of Room 6. I was really excited but as I was about to scream I heard a voice from Mrs Sharma which was “Before we leave, we need to put you’s in your guys group”, I was one of the last people to be chosen but little did I know my group seemed to be all my best friends which are Lydia, Hevani, and Grace, with my favourite Uncle, Uncle Daved.

On the bus it felt for 20,0000 years because it was so long and the factory was so far well in my opinion. I was so excited when we vanished out of the bus because I just wanted some Ice Cream and find out what it is made of; but just my luck I had found out we wait for like 1 hour and 30 minutes but it was fine because we had fun games like Cards, Chess, and pick up sticks, there was also a park. Once we got to inside of the factory I got to learn heaps of things like…:
Ice cream is made out of 7 ingredients (ice, cream, milk, sugar, main ingredients.flavouring, candy optional, and colour optional), I also learnt that the fridges that they keep are like ours and have the same temperature (4*C), the top 5 ice creams are Vanilla, Hokey Pokey, French Vanilla, Boysenberry, and Cookies’n’Cream.
We also got to eat Ice cream and watch the information and how Tip Top grew.

When the trip I had a huge frowny face because imagine if you had a dream that you won $60,0000 and you woke up to no money because that is how I felt. After I had stepped into class I found out it was school but then I thought to myself “Edith we can do this I mean you are an amazing writer”, so I felt a lot better because with that boost I was absolutely amazed of how my story was!.

This is my recount about Tip Top, I hope you enjoyed because I know I did!.

WALT: Critically examine food advertisements

This advertisement is selling a Mcdonald's burger because if you can see the title you can see whats in the burger. I really like this picture because I think it is very creative and it compares 2 things I love, Books, Burgers, food, and Mcdonalds.


This advertisement is selling Taco's from Taco bell, this picture persuaded me because I LOVE TACOS, and since were in NZ we do not get Taco Bell and I would love to try it. It is also like a game and I love games.

Why typing on computers is better than handwriting!

Why typing on computers is better than handwriting!

I feel that you are going to agree when I tell you that… typing on a computer is better than handwriting.

In my opinion I believe that typing on a computer can make you more skilled. When you are hand there is a 99% chance that you will get tired when writing with a book. For example when you start to write for hours (Like on a test) you hands can shake and be really tired and your hands will be fatigue, well this is because of one of these thing known as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, CTS (Carpal Tunnel Syndrome) can prevent tightness to your wrists or Numb fingers, you can get CTS if you go fishing, knitting, sewing, and… WRITING!!!. So this is my first statement.

This is my second reason why computers are better than books. When you are typing on a computer you don’t have to worry about having bad writing. For example typing on the computers has this toolbar on top of your doc or whatever you're using to write. Toolbars have different type of titles and systems to make your stories more professional and able to read for any types of ages over 8. As for your book sometimes you can feel pressured and write horrible on book but on a device you can type as fast or slow as you like and still be able to read your story. This is my second statement why Devices are better than books.

Now for my 3rd and final reason of why devices are better than Books is… When you are writing on a book it can be very challenging for you and the pencil or pen. To prove this reason when you are just writing a story you can be enjoying it but then at a random time “SNAP”, your pencil just broke and then you have to waste 2 minutes of your time sharpening your pencil. You're probably thinking “What if your using a pen!?!?” well a pen can be worst because when you're using a pen it can run out of ink and that is AWFUL!!!. So this is my final reason.

Therefore this is why you agree that typing on a computer is better than handwriting.

My planning for recent writing

USE THESE WORDS:

In my opinion..
Some believe that..
I feel that..
… therefore …
… moreover …
Because
Surely
For
Against
Unfair
In the same way..
On the other hand..
In this situation…
Better
Best

I feel that it is a parents responsibility to decide if their child can have a phone or not, that responsibility should not fall to the school or the teacher.

Some people might argue that having phones in school could lead to more cyberbullying, on the other hand, at TPS we do Cybersmart which teaches us how to be responsible on the internet.


Title: Why phones should be in school!.
Introduction:
I believe that we should let the parents decide if we could have a phone so that it will not be the schools, and the teacher's problem, it will be our business to deal with.

First paragraph:

O
Most people think that, using cell phones can be leading to a place where they could start to cyberbully, on the other hand, if you have a manaiakalani school there will be people that will come and teach you about cyberbullying and cyber smart.
R
In this situation phones will be very helpful because it is contained to help you with learning at school and not to help you hurt others people's feeling this is also why we have netbooks, it is so that we can learn so in the same way, a phone is exactly like a netbook but just smaller and a lot easier to take care of.

E
For example there is many people that will come in and help us with taking care of our devices if we have phones at school and also your parents wouldn’t even give us a phone, and their are many websites that say R13 which means that it is only for 13yrs old and over. Sometimes it's even R16.
O
So my first opinion is about cyberbullying and websites, and how mature people should only have cell phones.

Second paragraph:

O
Phones are very useful for learning and these are my reason and explanation why.
R
Most people believe that when you are on your phones you will play games and take selfies, but a phone is also very useful in a classroom since the games on phones are usually word problems, adding, or just like an online reading website, the camera on your phone to take beautiful selfies but you can also learn brand new methods and remembering it by taking photos, and you can use your camera to remember stuff on the app every phone has ‘notes’.
E
For example there are apps that can help you that are games, but, are also learning. There are 3 games (or more) that actually can help with learning like; Quizup (Writing and reading) , Brain wars (Maths and writing), and last but not least Audible (Reading). If you go on the audible website they will let you have a 30 day free trial.
O
Therefore phones can be very useful for learning and not just distracting people and yourself.

Third paragraph:

O
This is my last reason why which is… communication and safety.
R
First of all I am pretty sure they created phones for communication, because without communication life will be quite boring, but there's also communication for safety reasons.
E
For example if their is a fire and the teachers are in the staff room and the door is jammed you can use your phone to contact the police, firemen, and your parents.
O
So this is my third reason of the statement.

Conclusion:

Summarise the 3 ideas
Phones are important to have because it helps with communication, learning and it safe since their are restrictions for websites which will stop most people from cyberbullying. If there are people that disagree the parents and teacher can take their phone from the kid.
Recommendations or reflections
I believe that we should let the parents decide if we could have a phones because of these 3 reasons, 3 examples, and 6 opinions.


Persuasive writing

Merielle @ Tamaki Primary School: Should Zoos exist?

Merielle @ Tamaki Primary School: Should Zoos exist?: Should Zoos exist? I think that animals should be kept in zoos because  scientist can study the animals so we can know more about them ...



Hi this is another student blogpost and she has just started her blog and she has done such a good first time. Go Merielle!.

Should zoos exist? 😂😂😂😂😂😂

Should animals be kept in the zoo?
I think that zoos should exist, this is one of my favourite reason why, I think animals should be kept in zoos because there is a breeding program to look after them.

In my personal opinion I agree that animals should be kept in zoos, for example if animals are stuck in the wild the predators will come for them as if the are dinner, breakfast, and lunch but if they are in the zoo the zoo keepers around the world will try to make sure no predators will come into the zoo to attack the animals as the zoo keepers will protect them. (25 dangerous predators)

My 2nd reason why I think animals should be kept in zoos is because the zoo keepers try to make the zoo look exactly like the animals home for example there is a 40% chance that the animals will not get homesick because of the plants, water, and nature species it will feel home just a bit more safer and trustworthy . The other 60% chance can actually happen because even though the zoo looks like there home the surroundings look the same most animals know it is fake, so there is a chance of animals getting homesick, you can tell if the animals are losing their appetite, not eating, growling, and also for most animals will have a sore stomach and get constipated (Native Remedies website). You might be think what if the plants is not enough for the animals to storage in there stomachs, well that's when you are wrong because in most countries in the universe the animals will get more food than you could get in a restaurant. (Commtechlab)

The last reason I think animals should be kept in zoos is because after the animals get taken care of the animals will be taken back to the wild for example for a couple years and then once they are properly care of, bonus fact the before the animals come to the zoo some scientist checks the animal's DNA to make sure they would become extinct in the wild and are dangerous to make sure they don’t attack the crowd, I hope you agree with me for why animals should be kept in the zoo. (Animal science)

These three reasons, opinions, and examples are why I think that animals should be kept in the zoo.

Samoan conversation part 2



Today for Samoan language me and my buddy Stanley did a Dlo to explain our learning for a Samoan conversation.

WAL how much sugar is in different drinks.

Today Room 7 calculated and solved how much sugar were in different drinks, which Miss Ashley searched for, Miss Ashley had drink some, Miss Morrison gave some to Miss Ashley, (Some were even in the Rubbish Bin).Here is a story and picture if you get confused with the words.


We firstly had to see how much sugar was in the drinks Miss had picked out.











Secondly for some drinks we had calculated the per serve to actually find how much was in the drink










Third a random person Miss Ashley had chosen, had to put in a sugar into a type scale machine, while the other people had to tell the person to STOP when the needle had landed on the right amount.


















Lastly we put the amount of sugar in the bag, and we put the bottle next to the finished project (SUGAR).


















During this activity I found out that the drink V is 26.05 and Coca Cola can is 27 which means Coca Cola is 0.5 more grams then V. I enjoyed this activity. Ohh bonus tip 'I took the photos'.
