I love being an Ambassador

I just can't stop thinking about how much fun us Pt England ambassadors had. I can't stop think about it so I am deciding to do another blog post about it. I am so blessed that I got a 30 dollar gift card to the movies. But since I care and I didn't really know what to use it for I gave it to my friend because it was her birthday. I would also like to give a big shout out to Will who gave me the gift card. But not only him also the other  people who encouraged us. Thank you so much! I had so much fun!!

My own spider

Walt: use different vocabulary in our writing.

Information about  imitation sicronym:
This spider is no ordinary spider. As a spider it would be hairy and thin and some might be harmless. But this one isn’t. It takes a deadly bite if it is near a human being. It can jump, it squares is it’s weak side. It lives in hot places. Beware of the imitation sicronym

Task Description: So what we had to do was. Read some articles when I mead some I mean a lot. When we got a lot of information about insects and bugs and SPIDERS. Then we had to make up our own spider my one was called imitation sicronym. It looks harmless but beware of it. It pretends it is something else but really it isn't then it captures insects and eats it.

Bug descriptions

Walt: use different vocabulary in our writing. 

Task Description: What we did first was read articles and watch videos about our bugs. Then we had to write things about it and describe about what our bug looked like and what they do. And finished it off.

Math problems

Walt: solve multiplication problems.

Another ( maybe the best) Ambassador interview ever ( N4L Vistors!)

It happened again. The Ambassador got to go to the City so we didn't have to stay at our school and do a presentation there, we did it in the City.

These people made me laugh, smile and me made me love them too much. They were so nice that they gave us thank you cards that had a 30 dollar movie gift card. I was mind blown and was just too lucky for this.  Also thank you to Will who gave it to me and not only him also Mrs Stuart. And all of the others. I hope to meet these exciting people again.

I invented a new insect

Screenshot 2017-03-21 at 10.30.37 AM.pngA Cradashia is very easy to attack people. In many ways if you touch it in a hard way it will turn orange and that is how you know it is scared. If you try to kill it it will turn red and attack butterflies may be harmless but this one isn’t. It lives in cold places with trees.  As you know already it is sometimes gentle but at other times it can get really angry easily.

Bike saftey

Walt: make connections across multiple texts. 

Today we got a surprise from our teacher.  5 of us that got picked to go out on the bike track. It was Awesome!

First we had to sit down and talk about the important things you need. Your shoes, and your helmet. I really learnt a lot about shoes which was you Have to wear closed shoes not Sandals and not bare feet, otherwise your feet might get grated, just like a cheese on a cheese grater. I learnt that when you buy a helmet you should always check if there is a sticker that say certified product. Before you ride you must always check when you hold it a little tight that it doesn't have cracks, and you have the straps done up properly.

Riding on the bikes was really fun. I had to make sure that when some one is at the front of me, that I have made enough room for them to come in case they are going to stop. We also learned how to stop safely, by using both brakes.

 My favourite part of the day was when I was riding and got to the zig zaged bridge. I accidentally stopped and made my friend Naomi fall. No one cried or was hurt, but we did laugh.

Task Description: 5 people got picked and I was one of them. We talked about what we had to do before we got to ride on the bikes. When we finished the lesson about our foot wear, Helmet, obviously checking our bike and we also just talked about safety tips. The we got to ride!

Problem Solving ( about donuts and Pizza )

Walt: solve decimal subtraction problems.

Year 5 and 6 highlights

Walt: write about our experiences on camp.

Have you ever been camping on your school school field before?  Well I have trust me it is actually really fun. Oh sorry that I haven’t introduced myself my name is Daisy. Well believe or not this is my 2nd time going to camp. Oh and my school has been camping for 27 years. Yes I know Amazing!

At camp we sleep in tents with 2-4 people. I slept with one person and the good thing is she is my friend Makayla. Other people have camp when like it is for 2 weeks or something, but my camp it is different it is from Wednesday to Friday then it is over. To me it felt like it was like week being at camp. Doing camp is for kids to have time of school and just have fun with our teachers.

My favourite part about camp was actually kayaking. This is because kayaking is really fun. I got to go around this pole in the water couple of times. My friend Trendy was on fire, she went around the pole and back like.. Well I can’t even remember she made it look so easy, but the rest of us were struggling a little bit. Another highlight of camp that I really liked was the maungarei pools. It was really fun because there was the water park where there was like objects with water coming out I really liked the bucket water place, because it will tip water on you after 3 seconds.

Camp wouldn’t happen if it wasn’t my family  so I would like to say a Big thank you to my parents for helping me get to camp. Oh and I wouldn’t forget my teacher thank you to all of the teacher s who stayed up at night to help us sleep and go toilet. So thank to all the parents and teachers especially Mr Burt who started camp. How could I forget my team the best team you will ever know the team who represents Mr Burt the Principal's my team worked so hard that we came 3rd I mean it is better than coming nothing. Also congratulation to Mr Burt for the 27 annual camp of Pt England.

Being in camp was a big opportunity I learnt that I could improve more about me respectful to my team. I would like to say sorry if I was bossy to anyone in my team but yeah thanks for trying your best everywhere we went together as a team. A lot of kids should go camp because you could have fun instead of doing learning every year with nothing happening but assembly and prizegiving. I really enjoyed camp this year and I hope other people will when they become year 5 or 6.

Facts about Wetas

Walt:  Bugs ( Weta )

Image result for Facts about wetasYes if your confused about why we are learning about bugs well we aren't we are just doing this for fun. So we got to pick a bug we would like to research about I picked Wetas. Anyway I just found out that Wetas are actually endemic to NZ ( New Zealand ). I actually already knew that a Weta is really big but I found out it is kind of like a size of your head ( not really sure).  This fact is my favourite fact it is about how the name from Weta comes from the Maori word ( wetapunga ) which means god of ugly things. Wetas are actually known as the biggest insect on earth.  I am really interested in the fact that Wetas are nearly instinct because of rats.

Looking forward to camp

Walt: Thoughts about camp
For this years camp I am really looking forward to going to the pools. Because last year we could only dive I think it was because of the weather at night. So I am really looking forward to this year's pool trip because I think it is going to be way better than last year.  

Also I hope that the weather is nice and sunny and no storm like last year. It was the first time ever that our school camp groups had to sleep in classes, because of the weather it was so strong that my tent broke down. So I hope that the weather is better than the weather from last year.

Speaking of this year being fun I am really excited for our dance item, because have I even told you that I am a camp leader. So I am going make my team work as hard as they can to win. Even if we don’t win I am still happy because I know it is going to be really fun. Go Principals!

So only two days to go and then camp. I am pretty sure that this year's camp is going to be way better than last year's camp if it isn’t at least I got to go camp. Just hope for the weather to be nice and sunny.

Facts about Native Birds

Image result for Kiwis
Walt: make connections across multiple texts.
Why would having more native birds in Tāmaki be better? Because in Tamaki native birds in New Zealand are very important to us. Birds are special they can help with different kinds of things.

Image result for Silvereyed birdsI haven't even seen a Kiwi in Tamaki so I think we need more because Kiwi’s are obviously important to New Zealand.  Kiwis are also very talented it can help us with many of cool things. So we just need more Kiwis because we hardly Kwis in Tamaki.

I think Tamaki should have silvereye birds because I have never ever seen a silver eyed bird. Not only in tamaki but everywhere I go I only see magpies. I have also always wanted a silver eyed bird as a pet because it looks so cute.

Some people think that Pigeons are very talented but some people can think pigeons are just annoying. Well this is how Pigeons are annoying so for example if you are just sitting there relaxing say you were doing homework. Then all of a sudden it is too hot and you open the window then a few minutes later a pigeons flies in and you not sure how to get it out. So yeah I would really want less pigeons.

I think that Tamaki needs more Kiwis for people to see them in this area, because I have never seen a kiwi in tamaki yes some people can see them in other places in New Zealand but not in Tamaki. I also think we need more Silver eyed birds because they are so cute and  people can do things useful instead of just lying in your house sleeping. As I said that Tamaki should have less Pigeons because they can really annoy you in your house or even in school.

Task Description: Doing this was so fun learning about Birds being a bird expert. I also learnt that Birds actually eat bugs well not only because it is yummy, but because bugs eat trees and then birds eat bugs after that, birds poos and then a tree grows. So that was really interesting because I never knew that. Hope you enjoy my information about Birds.
