Best Friends to the rescue!

Today I made a narrative. Narratives are made up stories! My story is about to best friends named Ashley and Sarah Morrison. They lived in a beach house and  when they were swimming the saw something floating... Can you guess what it is, read my story and find out!

Once upon a time lived  beautiful young lady named Miss Morrison; well that was her nickname her real name was Sarah Morrison. She lived in a beach house with her best friend Ashley (her nickname was either Ash or weirdo because she done really weird things) . They always would do things together, they were  their for each other from day one. Ashley is older by five months and ever since then they’ve become sisters. Miss Morrison is the clown and Ash is again the weirdo.
One day Miss Morrison and Ash got  ready to go to the beach. “You ready?” asked Ash, “I was born ready!” answered Miss Morrison. They walked out of the beach house, “Hey Noah”,  said Miss Morrison  waving at the lifeguard. Noah was the lifeguard he sat on his chair waiting for someone to drown so he could help them (which didn’t really happen most of the time but he still got paid). Ash and  Miss Morrison strolled towards the blue ocean looking at all the people around them. Miss Morrison ran towards the ocean and fell into the water, “HAHAHA! YOU FELL!” laughed Ash. Miss Morrison the seaweed at Ash and waded away. Ash ran in as well but  she dived instead of jumping she looked like a mermaid. Miss Morrison and  Ash swam away and just talked and talked. They saw people swimming and some people on boats they were use to this environment and they  never thought they’d  be living in the  nicest beach house ever. As they were talking Miss Morrison saw something, “Hey what’s that?” she asked, “It looks like someone floating”, she added on, “OH MY GOSH SOMEONE IS DROWNING!”  they both yelled. Noah was too far away and they couldn’t yell that loud. “We can’t yell to Noah, we just have to save the person!” explained  Ash, they both ran as fast as they could towards the person and Miss Morrison picked her up. Ash tried her best to splash the water back so it was easier for Miss Morrison (it was really helpful).
They finally got out of the water. Ash sprinted as fast as she could towards Noah and told him about the girl. Noah and Ash ran to the girl. “Put her on the sand and i’ll do C.P.R on her.” Miss Morrison moved to the side while Noah put both of his hands on the girl's chest and pressed hard. The girl coughed and coughed. SPLOOSH! Out came water  lots of water. “Thankyou so much Noah I appreciate what you have done for me. You saved my life!” said the girl, “You're welcome Isabelle but I think you should thank these two young beautiful girls they're the ones who saved you!” said  Noah as he pointed to Miss Morrison and  Ash. “Thankyou so much use two, come over  for dinner tonight  we will be having some sushi!” said Isabelle. The two girls said yes and lather that night they were all dressed and ready to go. They became best friends and lived happily ever after!  As for Ash and Miss Morrison they were on the newspaper with the headline being: Best Friends to the rescue!

Facts about Space- P1

In week 9 and 10 we will be learning about space. We have different tasks to do and this is my first task!

Zoo Trip!

Yesterday Room 4, 5, 6, 7, & 8 went to the zoo. We went to the zoo because it is part of our inquiry topic Leisure and Entertainment. I really enjoyed my time at the zoo because I got to see some new animals. My favourite part of our trip was all the animals I got to see like the squirrel monkey and the facts I got to learn about. My least favourite part of the trip was when I found out that the hippo had died :( I had lots of fun and can't wait to visit the animals again in the future!

Giraffes presentation!

Kia Ora. This term our inquiry topic has been about entertainment and leisure. Back in the day animals were used for entertainment but now it is illegal. These past 2 weeks Hiria & I have been researching about Giraffes. Here is our presentation:

This is our animal: Giraffes. Giraffes are very special animals because they have very long necks and they are the tallest living terrestrial animals. The scientific name for Giraffes is Giraffa. They live in Africa in the Savanna which is the South of the Sahara desert. Giraffes naturally have black tongues to keep them from getting sunburnt but in the movie madagascar the giraffe has a pink tongue (weird right?) Male adult Giraffe's usually grow to 5-6 m and female grow about 4.6m, their legs are taller than most of us. They have 9 subspecies in total.

Giraffes roam freely on the Savanna with trees surrounding them. Male giraffes like to play fight with their horns, while female giraffes walk around with their babies. Since they live with other giraffes they like to walk in groups. They walk with two legs to one side and the other two to the another, it’s like us marching.

Giraffes are very tall but they cannot reach taller brachers that are taller than them.Giraffes mostly stretch their long neck to get ahead of the leaves. Giraffes have spots much like human fingerprints. No two individual giraffes have exactly the same pattern. Both male and female giraffes have two distinct, hair-covered horns called ossicones. Male Giraffes use their horns to sometimes fight with other males.

Female giraffes give birth standing up just like female cows do. They are pregnant for 14 months and have one baby calf at a time

It is very sad for the giraffes being eaten by lions it is so weird well they are so small and they are so tall it’s not good because giraffes don’t eat animals so why will animals eat them? Giraffes only eat leaves not meat not animals I guess lions like to hunt for animals and can’t get the nice smell of giraffe but on this movie madagascar there is a lion he is not like real lions he is so nice he doesn't even eat other animals, probably because it’s a movie,a kids movie.

Giraffes can get many different diseases and illnesses. These can range from a number of different skin conditions, brain conditions and nutritional conditions. They can get skin diseases, this affects their legs when they walk because it get itchy and they start to get scabies.

It was sad because 8 times Zoos Were Bad for Giraffes. Giraffes Belong in the wild, not in enclosures with many hazards that can cause these curious animals to become injured.Zoos like to claim that breeding giraffes helps to sustain the population.Giraffes have simple life’s in wild but in zoos it’s kind of different to wild like no lions hunting for them and all different different.

WALT: edit a text to make it better

The Pied Piper- Lydia

The town of Hamelin was a really outstanding town. A bunch of people lived there and it was as colourful as the rainbow!

Unfortunately, they found out that the town was suffering from a horrible plague of rats. The town council tried everything to get rid of them, but couldn’t. At last, the mayor promised a big prize to anybody who could get rid of all the rats

One night a suspicious looking stranger dressed in bright clothes arrived in town. He assumed he could get rid of all the rats in hamelin. He was wearing a big hat and long coat. That night, the stranger started to play a tune on his flute. All the rats came out of the houses, buildings, and into the river, where they drowned and died.

The mayor would not pay the Piper because he thought that playing a flute was not good enough to get a reward. The Piper was disappointed because he did get rid of the rats and the mayor did promise, “I will give a prize to the person who get’s rid of the rats”, and that’s what Piper done. The Mayor commended for the Piper to leave Hamelin and never come back.

Then one day the Piper came back disobeying the mayor, and started to play his flute. This time, all the children followed him, and he left the village towards the Slippery mountains. Suddenly, a cave opened in the mountain and the Piper with all the children went in. The cave closed behind them and the children were never seen again in Hamelin.

Hobby taster

Bonjour. As you all know we have been focusing on Hobbies, Entertainment, & Leisure. Yesterday Room 7 done a little hobby taster session. We had sewing machines (thanks to Miss Ashley's mum), Legos (thanks to Miss Ashley's mum), Model trains (thanks to Miss Ashley's mum), Hand sewing, and a 3d printing station (Link here). We got to meet Miss Ashley's foster siblings named Kelly and Rebel and they are the two little cutest kids ever!

We got into groups and sat at the station we were doing first. My group was Ariki, Amon, and Coralee. We were doing sewing machine first. Miss Ashley's mum was a bit late so Miss Ashley just told us what to do. First we practiced on paper and tried to sew straight lines and wavy lines. I was quite good for my first time and so focused. It was cool at the sewing machine and I had a great time. One of my cousins loves fashion and recently went to a fashion show, she already has her own design named Inimeg (she's a gemini and inimeg is gemini backwards).

Next I went to hand sewing. Miss Ashley taught us how to sew a button into fabric, how to sew a hole together, and how to sew different kinds of fabric into another. This was  my favourite because my mum and her sisters love to sew and I think this is like passing down the generation. I want to do this more often and this was my favourite session out of all.

Then I went to lego where we just made anything we wanted. I made a 1st 2nd and 3rd placement. First place won a horse, a tree, a car, a couch, a bed, and a dolphin. 2nd won a horse, a little tree, and a boat. 3rd won a horse, a wheel, and a little chair (i'm very weird but creative at the same time). Here is a picture of what I made:
After I went to Model trains. My group built something very simple and is kind of similar to the world we live in. It has roadworks, plants, trees, and people walking around, it also has cars driving around. Here is a picture of what we made:

After that we went to tinkercad. We done that for a little  while but after 15 min it got a little boring so we just played with the kids.

At the end of the day I had a great time and just like to say thanks to Miss Ashley's mum for taking time  out of her day to come and help her daughter with Room 7. I would like to do this again especially hand sewing because that was my favourite out of all.

Here are some photos and to see the rest click

The end!
