Goodbye viewers

Image result for bye
Goodbye viewers! Today it is obviously the last day of school. I won't be blogging in the holidays, it is because I have nothing to blog with. Just in case stay tuned, because you never know if I can just come on magically. I will miss my chrome book and this class. Hope you have an amazing holiday!


Estuaries and Ecosystem

Walt: synthesise information from across multiple texts.

Image result for food webFood web

This term I learnt about ecosystems and right now I have figured out what estuaries mean.  An ecosystem is a food web that shows what theses animals do to help our environment. So for example Birds help us in many ways so what birds do is it would eat seeds, and then it would actually poop and make trees. If there is more trees than there is more insects. So this year I actually made bird feeders, because no birds than no trees.  Back to estuaries, estuaries is when there is fresh water coming together with the salt water.

Task Description: I was actually meant to do a movie, but since it is the end of the year I couldn't use the I macs. So instead I had to do a blog post about estuaries and ecosystems. I was really upset that I couldn't do the movie, but the good thing is that I managed to do it properly. This script will be coming out in my movie next term. Hope you enjoy!

Paidea Seminar

The year 5/6 extension group were doing a Paidea seminar. This looks like having different groups and each group has an friendly argument with each other. I was in a group called the Maori tribe which is like a cultural group. Each group also did a movie, which you can check out here, and my movie was about how Maori people managed to live back in the day.

The Paidea seminar was really cool. We each got time to talk and we also had treats every time we talked or asked questions. I can say that we struggled, but it was only a practice so next time it will be easier for us because we have all ready done it. When we do Paidea seminar again I think that I will be a lot better than I was before, and that I will encourage my group instead of just letting them talk and talk.

Having to do the Paidea seminar is really cool, because it is a time that we can all share our ideas that we have been really wanting to share. I am not much of a shy person, but seeing me doing the Paidea seminar on video was really different because I never knew other people had a lot of cool ideas about their focus groups. Next time I am really looking forward. Would you like to participate in a Paidea seminar?

Here is a movie with some snapshots from our Paidea Seminar:

Eating crickets at school!

Walt: write narrative using descriptive language.

Have you ever tasted dead crickets at school before? When our class sat on the mat. Our teacher showed us a video of a girl eating crickets. I was so confused that I said to my friend “ did our teacher have too much coffee or what!”. I haven’t did this before, but maybe it might be as easy as it looks.  
When the video was done it was time to eat the crickets. As My teacher came around tipping the disgusting looking crickets. I was so scared to even touch it, but it was time I picked one up before anyone even touched it. Then I gave it a go I was absolutely petrified, But then I had a few more it was still yuck. The weird thing was I ate 12 crickets!
I am so happy that it is over. If I had to do that again I am pretty sure I could be confident, but I wouldn't do it if I had to eat a handful. Funny and weird thing to say, I wouldn't mind doing it again.
Task Description: What we had to do was just get straight into it. We watched a video about a girl eat 3 crickets Alive!. Lucky our one was dead. But I am so happy that it is over.

My own food web

Walt: make connections across multiple texts.
This is my food web. It is not a spider web with bugs on it. IA food web can be made by anyone but this is created by me. My food web only has native NZ insects/bugs. The food web is about what the insects/bug eats and I also made my own Arachnida and My own bug. I called my Arachnida ( Spider ) The Imitation sicronym. I also gave a name to my bug which was a butterfly it’s name was Cradashia. My spider jumping and it can pretend to be something so it can eat it’s prey. The butterfly is a normal butterfly but when it turns red it is a warning. When it turns orange  then it means it is scared. So my food web has different kind of animals, bugs or insects. It also has birds and fishes.

Task Description: My task was to make my own food web but the was the animals were only allowed to be native in NZ bugs, Insects or even animals. I had to write a doc about what a food web is. I also had to talk about my bug and insect that I made. Go check my blog post out about my own bug and insect. Hope you enjoy my food web!

Who will win?

Walt: make connections across multiple texts.
There was once a Beautiful scaled butterfly. The reason why it is called the scaled butterfly is because it has scales and when enemies come near it it can turn red and push it scales out to scare it away. For a butterfly it is really easy to find food because this butterfly lives in the forest where there are a lot of plants.

On that day The butterfly landed on a flower to suck some delicious nectar out of the beautiful flower. Suddenly a horrible disgusting looking jumping spider came. It pretended to be a flower it’s name was imitation sicronym. It’s name sounds so harmless  but it is really tricky it has eaten a lot of insect then you think. As the butterfly comes near imitation sicronym a giant grasshopper jumps in. It grabs the butterfly's body and eat it all up with the wings left out.

The spider tries to escape but it was too late. The grasshopper leaps over with it’s long legs and grabs the imitation sicronym before it was too late. Then the Grasshopper ate it with tiredness. The grasshopper was the only one to live.

Task Description: My task for this was to make my own insect and bug. Once again if you don't I made a blog post about my own bug and insect. Go check it out if you would like. I had to make a story about who will be destroyed and who will survive? Find out if you want know more.
