Then we research the best way to build a jelly bean tooth pick structure. After that we Plan/Design what will it look like, we also created it and we presented it to my class.

How Sea Turtles Grow into Adults

How Sea Turtles Grow into Adults
Sea turtles have been around for 150 million years. It takes around 20 years for a turtle to grow to be a breeding adult.

First it starts with a mother sea turtle, the mother sea turtles lays the eggs then the sea turtle buries the eggs under the ground, mother sea turtles lays about 50-200 eggs. It takes about 6 weeks to hatch. Only 20% of the eggs hatch. Each small enough to fit in your palm of your hand.

After that the baby turtles hatch and they are on a journey, it is a journey because the little babies have to go past their predators which is: Crabs, Seagull, and most importantly pollution. Only 50% of the turtles don’t survive.

Then some of the baby turtles have some more predators from the sea which are: sharks, fish, dolphins and big waves.  Also 50% of the sea turtles die. Sea Turtles can grow really big.From Example: In 10 years grow from size of a dinner plate to a dinner table.

It will take 20 years to be a breeding adult. Female sea turtles swim to the beach to burrie there eggs.

My Year Of Being A Year 7

My Year Of Being A Year 7
This year is a fun year because when I am a year 7 means I can be friends with new people who are year 8’s. In team 5 it is way different from the other classes I have been in.

Firstly what is different from the other classes is that when go to Tamaki College for Tech in tech there about 4 groups which are called: Hard Materials, Carving, Graphics, and Cooking. This term I am in graphics, in graphics we draw, make 3-D object. We do everything that include shapes and colours.

Secondly It is different because every Friday after lunch we have a game of sports we compete with other classes in Team 5 for the past few weeks I have played only Tag and Cricket we play these sports because we have to show teamwork and leadership and to be a role model to the younger kids.

Lastly another reason is we have to be at school at 8:30am and have to be at the streets we have an assembly. While the other kids are outside playing we are inside the streets having our own assembly. In the assembly we talk about what we will be doing today and some notes to remember, while we are in classes one of the notes we always use is be flexible which means to be normal and to respect everyone in your class.

One of my goals in team 5 will have to be getting better grades than last year and to be a great role model to the little kids.

On Our Way To Poly Fest

On Our Way To Poly Fest

Have you ever been to Poly fest before? Well Team 5 went on a long trip to Poly Fest.

Our trip yesterday was for our education and people who are shy about there culture get an opportunity to make them feel confident. Also we when there to know more about their cultures and to understand more. Poly Fest is a good festival to go to because you get to learn about cultures you didn’t know about also you get free stuff and some of the stalls you win stuff.

When we got out of the bus there were other schools lining up it was so crowded I couldn’t go through any one then when we finally made it past the long line we went to sit down and we sang some songs. After that long wait we went to some stalls the first one my group went to was the digital poi. We had to go in groups of five in the digital poi. A digital poi is something that is a poi and it lights up and it is really cool. Team 5 got free bags, glasses, fans and a poster from the ASB truck which made us feel amazing.

I think it is important for students who participate because they need to learn what their cultures is about and what is means they also have to be confident about their culture. What i think is amazing about students performing in the polyfest is they get perform and show people this is what their culture is and this is how it works. They also get to show off their dance skills.

I have explained about what is important for student who participated in the polyfest. Also I explained what is fun about polyfest. If I had a chance to go there I would definitely go there with my family.

Title - What you will be explaining
Introduction - Tell your audience what the topic is about and what is to be explained.
Information - Explain the elements or steps in a logical sequence
Conclusion - Final summarising statement, an evaluation or comment about what you have explained.

How to have a fun weekend
In this writing I am going to talk to you about things you can do to have a fun weekend.
1st element
First idea to have fun weekend is: go hang out with your friends. Things to do with your friends, If it is a hot day you can have a water squirt. If it is a rainy day you can plan a sleepover or play board games like: Jenga, Monopoly, Puzzles, or play card games. When you have a sleepover you can have a midnight feast which is you wake up until midnight which is 12:00 am and you sneak into the kitchen and grab all the junk food in the fridge and cupboards and you run to your room and you eat som of the junk food and your mum or dad will come into the room staring at you eating all the food.
2nd element
Another Idea to have fun on the weekend is to spend time with your family, you could have a BBQ with your whole family and you can get together and meet one another. You could all go to watch a movie together and have popcorn and drinks. Or you could go to do the swimming and bring cake or cupcakes and after your swim you can have a big feast with cakes and cupcakes.  Your family could also have fancy dinner and go to restaurants like Valentines or go Burger King, McDonald, KFC, or you could go to great tongs and you could have sweet and sour with is pork with this yum red sauce.
3rd element
Last Idea to have fun on the weekends is you could spend time with next door neighbour because you have to know something about the person living next to you, the person at the back of I know her because we just meet and we talked about a lot of stuff and then they moved to my school Pt England and he name is Amelia she is a year 8. So you should talk with your next door neighbour and then you play with them a lot then you will be so used to them you might even have sleep overs or you will give her/he a invitation to you birthday party or take he/her to a trip to the zoo, rainbow end, parakai, or something that you both like. You could also take them to a game of netball if it is a girl but if it is a boy you could take him to a game of rugby, or basketball.
So to have fun weekend is  to spend time with people you love and people you want to be friends with. Spend time with people you don't know but you might know a little something about them.
