Day 4 - Activity 3 - Picture Perfect - Week 2


What I can see is a lady posing on a building. The background looks like a village. She must have been feeling scared as the building might have been tall. I can see that the background has a lot of boats. I think she is in Australia because there is an national boat day. It looks like she might fall back. The village looks very old. I notices that there is a bridge in the background and it looks like the Gladesville Bridge. I researched and I found out that National boat day is to encourage Australians to celebrate boats. I can see lots of trees that it looks like a forest.

This week I needed to choose one of the following three selfies. From left to right.then I needed to write a short story about what I thought was happening in the picture. I also needed to inculcated where they were at and needed to write it in 8 to 10 sentences for full points.

Day 4 - Activity 1 - Planes, Trains and Automobiles - Week 2


This week I was to choose an option to take to Milford Sound. I was to choose an option between taking a walk around the area, taking a boat cruise, or a helicopter that flies above.

How many adults and children will it take to move the giant squid into its new room at Te Papa? This answer that I have came up with is it takes 21 children and 8 adults. Here is my answer in numbers
315+25+25+25+25+20+20+20+20+= 495. A colossal squid can be found Deep in the ocean, far below the surface.

Ironing was mostly the compact part of making the clothing straight. You needed to get and iron that was fully made of Cast Iron and heat it over a fire ,once it gets hot you can then lay it on your clothes and move the iron everywhere on the Clothing. It was very heavy and hard to operate. This was used in the the late 19th century. A Dolly tub and peg was also used to clean clothing. What you needed to do was twist the peg so that the clothing in the Dolly Tub would mix with the soap that was added. Soap was not bought at stores as they needed to make it. Soap are made out of lye, fats and oil and were grated into the water to help clean the clothes. On washing day they ate leftovers because washing took a very long time and there was no time to make food.

Room 3 created a movie about bridge building, LS1 created a movie called A bit Dicey,Room 4&2 made a movie about super heroes and LS2 made a movie about the Panmure Bridge and its history. We got to watched St puis, St patricks, Tamaki collage, Tamaki primary and St Kura. We all enjoyed the film that was played. My favorite part was the beginning and LS1's move. The beginning was really nice because it was well down but our head girl Tiava. I really liked that the back round was showing our whakatauki as it shows people that our school is respectful.

This week for Kiwi Sport we were learning about Boxing. Our Instructor/Coach was Pax she was boxing for about 3 years and teaches primary schools at year of 5 and up. What we did first was we went over some expectation and some of the key rules. The first Rule was Respect how can I show respect in Boxing. I can be Respectful by listening to the person speak and treat people how I want to be treated. The Second Rule was discipline. How can I show discipline in Boxing I show it by having a good behavior. The last Rule is Safety how can I show safety in Boxing. I can show safety by making sure I don't hit anyone and not swing my arms and hands. She also told us that if we were not following the rules you and the class had to do 1 burpe. Today for kiwisport was our first session of boxing.To warm up we played a warm up game. In this warm up we were to try and touch our partners shoulder or knee. If they got touched they were to do 1 burpie. After that we started wearing our gloves.The position that we stood in was called a rock. In this position we were to put one feet backwards and the other one at the front. After doing this we bent our knees. Then we placed our hands underneath our jaw. Next we started practicing how to jab and cross. A jab is when you box at someone roughly or quickly. A cross is when you jab the opposite side. This was a recap for people who missed last weeks session. Next we learn how to do a hook and a uppercut after we did this we put it all together. We also practices so movement
