Our trip to Mairangi Bay


It was a early night for me on Thursday night because we had a trip to Mairangi Bay the next day to teach us about Surviving in the water.

The things that we where going to learn is how to identafie a rip and if you get into pulled in to a rip what to do If you get in a rip try and stand up and swim to the waves and stay calm.

After when we had learnt about identafiing a rip both classes (room 19 and room 20) went out and played on the beach some games with the life gaurds the first game we was Octapuss then tag bullrush and one of our helpers tackled Casey luckily he did not get hurt, but then Racheal got triped up by Feki then him and Etta went tumbling on her foot and and squashed it so she had to go and get the ice pack for her ankle.

Then we did some water activtiys the boys did boggy boarding first and the girls went swimming with the red tubes. When 15 minutes went past the boys and girls swoped over then when that half hour finished we had to get changed and pack up to come back to school. As we where leaving the sun came out foe the first time all day.

They have arrived.....

“Wooohoo” They have arrived and we are using them.
Yesterday the Year 7s at Pt England School where very exited because our netbooks had arrived and we were putting our user details in them.



The reason why we got our netbooks early is because we are the PILOTS for the Manakalani cluster of 7 schools. It is like we are the guinea pigs as the Years 7s being the pilots for testing them and writing every thing down about our comments problems and our solutions so then we send our infomation about our netbooks to Mrs Burt via email.



We still have to wait to take our netbooks home because now that we have them we are only trialing them but next year when school starts again we will be able to take them home just like all other schools from year 5 and up to year 13. 
"Having the netbooks will change our way of learning and thinking and looking at things from a different perspective" says Gabrielle.

The Lemon Tree Borer



The Lemon Tree Borer is a long horn beetle, the resion why this paticuler beetle is called THE LEMON TREE BORER is because the lemon tree is its favourite tree to lay its eggs. When the eggs hatch white larve stays on the leaves and then the wasps eat the larve.

Graphics



At graphics we learn how to do many things with our hands and the computers. While Miss Ferguson had her seconed
year 7 class ever for Point England School. We learnt about all kinds of different mechanism the waving one popping out one.
Some times when the computers would not work and Miss Ferguson fixed it she would jump up and down all around the room and the whole class would always laugh at her. She would say to all of us if we put it up on our blogs she will be ashamed so much she would have to scream and do it even more shhhhh don't tell her.
We had to do 3 designs with different mechanisms.
So take a look at my illustrations and comment me what you think of them.

Aucklands Volcanic Field



The Auckland Volcanic Field is made up of 50 basalt volcano. Most of the volcanoes in Auckland have only erupted once which means they are monogeneric volcanism.
Rangitoto has erupted a few times so that means Rangitoto is polygenetic volcanism.

Rangitoto is the youngest and largest volcano in Auckland. It takes up 50% of the Auckland Volcanic field. That volcano erupted about 600 to 800 years ago. It is 259 meters high.

Maori believe that Rangitoto gaurds the Waitamata harbour. When Rangitoto erupted out of the sea the Moari living closley on Motutapu Island must of thought it was the end of the world.

Rangitoto's name means Bloody Sky, it has 7 known lava caves and its cone is Scoria igneos rock. Rangitoto is a intraplate which means, in the middle of a techtonic plate it also means a hot spot for volcanic activity.

To me Rangitoto is an amazing volcano. But I hope it never erupts while im living in Auckland, all that ash cloud and lava it scares me just thinking about it.

For Writing-Disasters.


This morning we had to do a task for writing to organiser information report.
We had to do this because Ms Tito says that our writing is random.




A disaster is an event that causes destruction, pain and suffering. Disaster's can be natural or man made.

Natural disasters can be caused by extreme weather events, climatic conditions or changes in the earths crust. Natural disasters include cyclones, tornadoes, floods, droughts, bush fires, earthquakes and volcanic eruptions.

Man made disasters are usually the result of accidents, disease or war. They range from catastrophic evens like major wars and nuclear accidents which destroy huge amounts of the the environment and kill many people, to everyday occurrences like road accidents and crime.
Emergency services and charities rush to help when a disaster happens.

Disasters are a personal tragedy for the people involved.

Nesion 101 lyircs




At camp each group was assigned with a song and my group the Kind Crew got this song.

Nesian 101 lyrics........
(You know the time, you know the time - it's time for Nesian 101)

You're never on time
And music’s on all day
And you be growing them rude-ngati dreads
White on white sneaks and baggy jeans
Got that greenstone around your neck

I came from the 183
So I know a little bit about fresh bee
Yes we, keep rep’n and rock’n that fresh steez
Jeans cut with socks and jandals
Aloha shirts be the formal dress standard
Spot the poly’s from a mile away
And you know they're coming when you hear this play

Follow the leader.... leader.... leader
Follow the leader x 2

You’re so fresh so I want to know if you're down
'cause if you are then let that hair down baby
I wanna know

Got 2 fried eggs on that $1 bread
Street fighter 2 where my money's spent
Brothers roll past, speakers on full blast
Singing “Korero Maori e”


You're never on time
And music’s on all day
And you be growing them rude-ngati dreads
White on white sneaks and baggy jeans
Got that greenstone around your neck


What you know about F.O.B
Taro, Manioke & Lu Sipi
Ya’ll know what I'm talking bout the Sunday Feeds
2 minute noodles & that fried Corned Beef
for the rest of the week, that’s all there is
go to school and scab off the rest of the kids
save that bus money home for that $1 chips
if you don’t walk it off it goes straight to the hips..

I never run my day by time,
I run my time by the change of sky,
I run my time like my appetite,
Coke and a pie’s what we call fine dine,
SURRY CRES to SANDRINGHAM,
CALIFOR-NI-A down to JAPAN,
It’s the real McCoy making all that noise,
More FOB than FALL OUT BOY….

You're never on time
And music’s on all day
And you be growing them rude-ngati dreads
White on white sneaks and baggy jeans
Got that greenstone around your neck


So what we gon' do right here, is we gon' school ya on what we call, the ways of the fresh; Nesian 101 if ya will. So if ya feelin' what we sayin', let me know, join in

Bounce on that 2 & 4, don’t clap on that 1 & 3..
You have your Cappuccino, we on that Cuppa Tea..
Be rude to turn it down, so take it if its free..
Just keep it FRESH, no matter where you be.. X2

(all the ladies in the place put ya hands up, put ya hands up, put ya hands up, put 'em up, put 'em up, let's go)

You’re so fresh but I want to know if you down
'cause if you are then let your hair down baby
I want to know

You're never on time
And music’s on all day
And you be growing them rude-ngati dreads
White on white sneaks and baggy jeans
Got that greenstone around your neck X2


(sing it with me now)


Follow the leader.... leader.... leader
Follow the leader x 2
