It was a nice sunny day today and I was getting really hot I didnt no if it was because it was because it was getting close to my turn to go or because the concrete was getting really hot.

Then all you see is that me and sarona get up and go to the taps to wet our feet. We also had a little water fight Okay Okay I mean a lot. Then miss nua took the year 7 and 8s to the bottom field so we can cheer the people that go past.

Yesterday after to lunch all the seniors had our opportunity to watch a show. We had no idea what it was about or who was gonna perform for us. The people that were performing for us were called the revolution they go all around the world and tell people to stop the bull.

The first thing they did was that they would go around the room and someone will choose someone. Then that person would have to stand up and go crazy like you’ve never been before. They first chose Tj but he didn't dance then they chose brent but at less he stood up.

Then they had us chose who should go up and dance we pick Mr Barks but they called him Mr B . Then as soon as they said can you pick a female teacher to come up now then everyone turned back and yell Miss Paget they went up to her but she was walking away she didn't want to do that she almost lift the room.

But then Semi got up and said he would do it. So then Mr Barks I mean Mr B and Semi had to dance crazy. The song that they were dancing to was harlem shake. Mr B was dancing in the start but Semi was waiting for the main bit of the song came on.

Then Boom! He starting doing the cook island dance thingy then He mixed it up with some twerking. It was funny as but they said they came here to tell us a story.That story was about a boy his first day as year 9 at school and he decided to wear a pink top when he got there everyone starting pointing and laughing then push on the ground and said never wear that top to school. But then two boys help him up and said wear that top to school tomorrow.

They started to ring everyone they know at school and told them to wear a pink top to school they said its pink t-shirt day.Then everyone that he knew at school was wearing a pink top. So then those boys that were picking on him must know how it feels not to fit in. Or get bullied.

They said Help us stop the bullying .There sign is a hashtag how to do it is by doing to peace signs and put them together and it makes and hashtag .Then they told to huddle in and then we all did the hashtag and took a photo.  

Then someone came on stage sorry forgot her name but then she sang variera she was really good at singing. Then it was time to go after the show everyone went to the people and started taking loads of selfies. They posted them all of facebook well some well this is my story about the REVOLUTION.

Banning plastic bags

Dear John Key
*Plastic bags and rubbish have been floating across our ocean for over years they are Killing sea creatures and birds as we known what I’m trying to say is that we should ban plastic bags. Because then our water will be more clean and it wouldn't harm any sea creatures.

*Most sea lions or other sea creatures have choked on or been choked by plastic bags because of them floating around in the ocean.China is a country of 1.3 billion people and in the water there a 3 billion plastic bags daily, according to China Trade News. About 1 million plastic bags are used every minute.

*In the United states of america they selling Plastic bags for 1 dollar so then people would want to buy not that much plastic bags then there would be that much plastic bags in the water so there kind of doing something about it .

*New zealand is known as a green country so we should make that statement true by clean the water in the ocean and getting rid of plastic bags or trying to make people use less plastic bags

Writing sample

*Why is taking care of your mind and body so important. Well taking care of your body means eating the right foods and drinking water everyday. The reason why we do that is to keep our body well and healthy. But what about our mind?

*To take care of your mind is to not do drugs or things like that because if you do, do that it affects your brain then you could get a brain tumor. Brain tumor is like cancer in your brain. Thats one of the reason to take care of your brain.

*The reason why taking care of our body is so important is so that we can live a long and healthy life. Lucky scientist and doctors have found a qua to make our sickness to go away if they didn't then how knows what would've happen.

*How to take care of our mind and body? To take care of your body is to eat the healthy foods it doesn't mean you can't eat drunk food it means just not a lot all the time. In the life ed caravan Lyn showed us a chart of the foods we should mostly eat and the foods that we should eat just sometimes.

*If your body is unhealthy it’s good to drink some water and eat fruits and vegetables.

Life Education Caravan

Lyn, Lyn is a lady that goes to lots of school and teaches then about our and other things.What we learned about is Drug and Alcohol and how it affects our body. Len showed us picture of people and what they look like when there drunk.

She showed us a picture of a boy named James, James was a teen ager he was a good boy and then he wanted to go to a party and some drinks just because his friends were. He was falling over and making a fool of his self. Well he was doing that his friend were just laughing at him.

So they thought they could give him more beer so he could be more funny. Then James went for a nap and his were asking where he was but they he was sleeping his alright. Then the next morning they went to go see if he was alright but then he was gone that day James was dead.

Then lyn showed us a video of people and them telling us that they wish that they could restart there life so that teaches us also not to drink when were older or you can not drink that much beers and vodka.

Those people a now looking for jobs or at less most of them but some of them Don't because of there history and what I mean by that is that the things they did bad still carries on its like what we learn at school thats why we have to leave a positive footprint online and offline.

Lyn has been at our school for 4 weekends this year and I have learned a lot from those 4 weeks. So thank you Len for teaching our school about our body and how to keep it healthy.

What is Echolocation?

Echolocation is an echo that bounces off an object when you make a sound. Then you would be able to know what that object is by hearing. Here’s an example of the way that dolphins use echolocation. They use it by doing clicking sounds underneath water. That sound bounces off that object and comes back to them so they can know if there is any prey or friends.

Ben underwood is a young man that had cancer in his eyes. His vision was gone when he was about 3 years old. Ben would go outside and play freely. The way he does that is by doing clicking sounds with his mouth that echos to the object and comes back to him like a dolphins . So Ben is able to see without any vision but by hearing.

Echolocation is a very cool skill to pick up but not easy to pick up thats why Ben Underwood was a really smart boy. He was able to pick up a skill that most people have found hard to learn. Most people don’t even know what echolocation means.

When I finally got to school I felt the warmness as walked into my class room and hands already warming up.

Working online was a big deal for me imagine all of those pencils paper erasers and rulers all of those things into my netbook. But to have a netbook you would have to be cyber smart.

Being cyber smart means to stay safe online so watch out what post. Also look out for dodge things and if you download anything make sure to ask someone if you download something it could lead lots of spams that pop out on to your screen.

Spams a things that come up on to your screen like if you click on something you're supposed to be on a link will come up with a dodge site. So be cyber smart.

When you a online and search up something you a leaving a digital footprint. Everything you do online is recorded.

When we finally got there,There was this tall really really really tall man at the door he was telling us about it and what kind of things that were in there. Then he told us to head in side line by line.

As we were walking inside there were lots of in there. We all sat on the chairs that were inside. There 3 people in front of us. They were telling us some interesting thing and what will happen. Then all told us to have a look around and and found out how it works.

When we were having a good look around we all had a little card and we all had to figure out what thing where and how they work. When you finish everything on that card you will have write your name on it and put it in the box so you can win a prize.

Chloe Guitar

The guitar is one of the most popular instruments to play. A guitar makes beautiful harmonies.

The guitar is shaped like a pear and it has six strings. When you strum a guitar it makes a funny sound. The guitar is made of wood metal and all sorts of thing the strings on the guitar is made out of metal wire. On the guitar there is its neck,tuning keys ,Bridge, sound hole and strings.

But how does a guitar make sound? A guitar is like a box and when you strum the strings inside the box it echos. Then it makes sound and that is how a guitar makes sound. The guitar is shaped the way it is so that the sound can go louder. Thats why it’s hollow inside. If it wasn't hollow inside, the sound wouldn't come out clearer than it does.

If you would want to play the guitar you would need to know some chords and you would need a pick so you can strum the guitar.

Sarona and Chloe Funnel experience

Science experiment:
Question: What will happen to the sound if I change the shape of a piece of paper? (e.g. from a flat shape to a funnel shape)
Links to research about Sound:
Hypothesis: (What do you think will happen?) e.g. I think that….
It might echo.
Materials needed:
Paper, Tape and Tissue
Experiment (procedure):
e.g. Step 1 -
First hold a flat piece of paper against you're ear.
Step 2 -
Let you're partner speak into it.
Step 3 -
Fold you're piece of paper like a cone.
Step 4 -
Then put your  tissue in and see what it would sound like.
Step 5 -
Then test everyone in you're classroom to see what they would sound like too.
Data (What happened?)
flat piece of paper
Clearer? Didn't make any difference.
funnel facing to the front
It sound the same.
funnel facing to the side
It was defferent than before. It was louder than before.
cotton ball blocking funnel
It sounded different because it sounded like there was a little baby speaking to me when they were speaking. It also sounds blurry.
rolled up piece of paper (facing to the front)
Well it doesn't make a difference when my friend talk’s it sound’s the same. It also vibrates into  your my ear.
rolled up piece of paper (facing to the side)
Well it doesn't make a difference when my friend talk’s it sound’s the same. It also vibrates into  your my ear.
Flat Piece of paper did not make any difference. Funnel facing to the front sound the same.Funnel facing to the side was defferent than before. it was louder than before. Cotton ball funnel sounded defferent because it sounded like there was a little baby speaking to me when they they were talking in it. Rolled up piece of paper doesn't make a difference when my friend talk’s it sound’s the same. It also vibrates into  your my ear.
My hypothesiswas wrong because it did echo and it did make the right sounds we wanted to hear. When your partner talks to you through it would sound louder and you would hear them clearly.
