Acceleration for Term 3

This term I am going to accelerate in...
  • My writing as I want to be above standard by the end of the school year but I am currently tracking to be at standard by the end of the school year.
  • Also my maths as I believe that I can do better. I am currently a 5a but I think that I can get to a 6b minimum.

Winter Learning Journey Day 7 Bonus Activity

Image result for winter learning journey

Over the winter holiday period, and Term 2 break, I traveled all around New Zealand from the comfort of my den...

I went with all of my fellow Maniakalani bloggers and visited several different places in our beautiful country presently covered in a dusting from the Long White cloud know as New Zealand that I hadn't been to before...and probably wouldn't of known about if I hadn't been on this virtual learning journey.

I explored the awesome city of sails - Auckland.  I tried some  Maori cuisine. I got to see an amazing All Blacks haka live at Eden Park. I got to celebrate the Maori new year known as Matariki.  I rode a bike along the Otago Central Rail Trail and I got to visit Farewell Spit which is really now just a whale graveyard.

 I even got to prove that the moa still exists!

I have enjoyed my journey, but perhaps this sums it up better that I can...

Winter Learning Journey Day 7 Activity 2

I find watching any movies/documentaries about animals or WWE wrestling relaxing especially when it is a cold day...or getting lost in a good book (I'm currently reading Harry Potter) with a mug of hot white-chocolate.  I also like to relax on the rugby field, or by cooking a tasty meal in the kitchen.

Winter Learning Journey Day 7 Activity 1

1. Put more rubbish bins out to be used with flaps on the front so that when the rubbish gets put in, nothing comes out.

Winter Learning Journey Day 6 Activity 1

New Zealand

Navigating the rough water
Each and every new dawn
We hope to finally meet this luscious land

Zigzagging through all of the different regions

Engulfed in an array of colours
Awestruck because of it's beauty
Life afresh with a new hope
A fresh chance...a new beginning
Nurture balances with nature
Dreams become reality.

Winter Learning Journey Day 5 Bonus Activty

I would like to ride on a bike on the Otago Central Rail Trail. 

It sounds like really good fun because New Zealand has beautiful landscapes to look at whilst you are riding along and a great way to keep fit!

I think that it would be a really good experience to do with friend and/or family but only in the Summer season.

Richie McCaw was born in Oamaru, New Zealand on 31st December, 1980. 

He is famous because he has played for the All Blacks at four different Rugby World Cups, three of which he captained and two of which he led the team to win. 

Not only has he played for the All Blacks, but he also played for the Super Franchise Team The Crusaders (based in Christchurch) from 2001 - 2015.  He has also played for Canterbury in many provincial rugby tournaments and charity matches.

Winter Learning Journey Day 5 Activity 1

After admiring a giant Kauri tree, I turn around to re-join the rest of my group...but they were gone! 

I wonder to myself..."What I am going to do?" 

I start to worry. 

I think to myself..."What if I never see them again?" 

I start looking around.  I start to walk one way and call out for my group, then I hear them. I start to jog but then I hear the voices getting softer and softer. So I call out again, but they obviously can't hear me. 

I start to sprint, and yell at the top of my lungs....

Then they yell back..."Harrison, where are you?" 
I hear curious kiwi squeal with delight and my heart rate begins to slow. Finally I catch up with them and I tell them all about my journey and we laugh off the situation as we head out of the forest.

Winter Learning Journey Day 4 Bonus Activity

I think we should stop fishing at Farewell Spit because...

  • Illegally under-sized native fish are being caught in the area and marine food supplies/stocks are being diminished. 
  • Hector dolphins are being killed and captured in the fishing nets and boat propellers which has led to a dramatic decline in the population of Hector's dolphins; there are now only around 7,000. 
In this picture a baby dolphin was killed by someone's boat propeller...

  • Farewell Split is a sacred place for the Maori people where they believe the "spirit" of a dead person leaves the land and I believe that it should therefore be respected.

Winter Learning Journey Day 4 Activity 1

What happened at Farewell Spit? 

300 whales got themselves beached on the shore, and unfortunately despite numerous efforts from a lot of people they died.  

 Environmentalists, tourists and everyday kiwi people spent hours running back and forth, filling buckets up with seawater to make sure that the whales didn't dry out and suffocate. 

Unfortunately not all of them survived, and eventually only a handful were successfully re-floated back to sea.

Winter Learning Journey Day 3 Actvity 2

I definately agree that possums should be hunted because the kiwi population is on the brink of extinction due to the many predators they have, but largely due to the numerous ways in which the possums affect the kiwi population. 

Not only are the possums eating the kiwi eggs, but they are also destroying the native plants, damaging the habitats of other native animals and generally a nuisance. 

Most New Zealanders believe that possums aren't just endangering the kiwi,  but also endangering other native birds such as the kererū, kiwi, harrier hawk, fantail, muttonbird, and tūi to name a few. 

Winter Learning Journey Day 3 Activity 1

I have decided to adopt a Tuatara. 
Image result for tuatara
The reason I decided to adopt a Tuatara is because they are such interesting reptiles. They are nocturnal, and territorial, but they will often bask in the sun during the day to warm their bodies because they are cold-blooded. 

They feast on insects, birds and they might even eat some young Tuataras'!  They are the oldest relatives to the dinosaurs aswell! Who wouldn't want to adopt one!?

Winter Learning Journey Day 2 Bonus Activty

I interviewed my Mum and she answered...

  • Walking in the countryside and open landscapes taking in the beauty which we often overlook...

  • Sitting on the beach, relaxing to the sound of the waves crashing on the beach and smelling the sea air...

  • Eating a meal outside...nothing tastes better than a meal and a glass of wine outside...

  • Listening to open air music concerts or watching live theatre performed outside; it creates an electric atmosphere...

  • Watching, netball but NOT cricket, definately NOT cricket!

If I had the chance to interview Laura Dekker I would ask her...

  1. Who, Why and What inspired you to sail around the world?
  2. What was your favourite place to visit and why?
  3. If you could do it again, would you really?
  4. What would you do differently if you knew then what you know now?
  5. Was it boring sailing by yourself or did you discover things about yourself which you didn't know before?

Winter Learning Journey Day 2 Activity 1

I went to Rangitoto, Karekare Beach and also Tane Mahuta. 

I went to Rangitoto which is a nature reserve and the largest volcanoe in New Zealand. The best thing that I did there was "twitching" aka bird watching.  I saw Tui's, Kea's, Weka's and the awesome Morepork owls. 

After Rangitoto I journeyed to Karekare Beach which is where they filmed the iconic 1993 film "The Piano". After a nice swim in the clear waters, I took off and headed over to the oldest kauri tree in New Zealand, Tane Mahuta. 

Tane Mahuta is a giant kauri tree and is estimated to be between 1250 and 2500 years old.  Here in the Waipoua Forrest I did the 166m hike to the 'Lord of the Forest' along the track which was really fun.

Winter Learning Journey Day 4 Activity 2

Whale Rider

Traditionally, boys are only allowed to become a chief in a Maori tribe however, this tradition looks to be upset when the child that is in line to be the next chief dies at birth but is survived by his twin sister, Pai

However at the age of 12, Pai asks for help from her Grandmother, and under the training of her Uncle Roa, to claim her birthright to be chief. To hold the mantle of chief she will have to convince her grandfather that she is beyond worthy of such a position and of "great" character..

Grandfather however is of the belief that to honour their ancestors, the age old tradition of male descendants leading the whanau must be upheld.  Can Pai convince everyone that she is a leader, and will her Grandfather change his opinion of her as a girl and see her true calling?

I would rate this movie 4 out of 5

Winter Learning Journey Day 1 Bonus Activity

My flag symbolises every man and woman who represented New Zealand when they went to war in defense of peace, and of all those who didn't come back to their homeland.  

  • The flower is a symbol of the blood which was shed, and the lives lost, with eternal gratitude and love of their sacrifice.  
  • The green depicts the associated "kiwi" colour from the land they have come from.  
  • The black is the colour of grief and mourning for where they have fallen.

Winter Learning Journey Day 1 Activity 2

After watching the Auckland tourism video, I decided that I would like to;

  • Catch a ferry to Devonport and have farm-raised catfish with a side of caesar salad at the Red Lobster. 

After my lunch, I would go to;

  • Rainbows End where my favourite ride is...Fear Fall.  It has is a drop tower measuring over 18 stories high, with top speeds of 80km/h. 

Next I would venture into;

  • Auckland Domain and have a wander around the Auckland War Memorial Museum.  I would go directly to the natural disaster exhibition where there is a volcanic eruption simulator and a detailed explanation of what would happen to Auckland if there was a volcanic eruption.  I would also visit the World War 2 area and look at the Spitfire and the Zero (WW2 Planes) fighter from Japan.

After a long day of sightseeing I would be rather hungry so I would;

  • Catch a bus into Ponsonby for a delicious dinner at Burger Burger.  I would get a Kiwi Classic- a Burger with a NZ beef patty, aged cheddar cheese, pickles, cos lettuce, tomato, fried egg, beetroot, tomato jam, mustard and mayo all washed down with a glass of LnP.

Top 3 Facts
  1. Four hundred years before Captain Cook set down his anchor in Poverty Bay Gisborne, the Maori people had voyaged in their waka's to find the land that we know today as Aotearoa (The Land of the Long White Cloud).
  2. One of the many things that New Zealand is infamous for is AJ Hackett's invention of the bungy jump...A J Hackett - NZ . The first ever modern bungy jump was on April 1 1979, from a 76 metre high suspension bridge in Bristol, England. This particular jump was carried out by David Kirke, Geoff Tabin and Simon Keeling...all members of the Oxford University Dangerous Sports Club. The idea was based upon native tribal "land diving" in Vanuatu. Here a tribesman would jump off a tower made of wood (about 20-30 metres high) with tree vines wrapped around their ankles as their "bungy-cord".
  3. New Zealand is presently home to 4.596 million people, with a combined land mass of 268,021 km2...however 56% of this population live on the North Island. A longstanding popular myth has always been of the extreme ratio of sheep to people (allegedly 20:1). However, that is not the kiwi reality with the ratio now being only 6:1 and there being more cows (dairy) than sheep in today's New Zealand pastures.

We went to Howick Historical Village on tuesday the 27th of June. One of the activities that we did was schooling. I really enjoyed this activity. Mostly because we got to experience what schooling was like back in the 1830s to 1840s. There were a lot of differences from then to now. One of them being there as a cane which teachers would use to punish the students.

Indoor Toys

We went to Howick Historical Village on tuesday the 27th of June. One of the activities that we did was indoor toys. I really enjoyed this activity. Mostly because all of the majority of the toys used gravity to work. That was sort of there electricity I guess?!

Outdoor Games

We went to Howick Historical Village on tuesday the 27th of June. One of the activities that we did was outdoor games. I really enjoyed this activity. Mostly because all of the toys were made from wood which was really quite fascinating how so many people could've had so many toys just from a couple pieces of wood.

Over the past few months I have been working hard in all areas. For many reasons one is so that I can prove to myself that I can be an academic and also a sportsman. Another one is to prove to my parents that I am not dropping marks. I feel like I have been doing really well these past terms though.
If I knew that last year I would even be in the running to be selected for sports camp I wouldn’t have believed you. However, now that I am training I feel a lot better . I also feel like  I actually have a really good chance of getting selected.
I have also improved in chess. Not only have I been learning more strategies. I have also been learning to control my game speed and my concentration methods. When I started to learn how to do concentrate I realized that I was winning a lot more competition wins and instead of just winning 1 or 2 games in a competition I went undefeated which I was really shocked about.
Doing all of this sport is all well and good, but the main reason that I come to school is to learn. My learning has improved a lot over the past 2 terms as I am now working ahead of where I am suppose to be in reading, writing and maths.

Over the past 6 months I have made a massive improvement. In all areas of school. Whether it is training for sports camp or maybe it was when I was training for chess. Perhaps it was even in the classroom. Overall I feel like I have really improved in all aspects of learning.

Emotions: Highlanders vs Lions

WALHT: show not tell emotions
The frowns were all over the foreheads of the Lions. They were covering the faces, barely making eye contact. All you could hear was complaining. Their heads were down. Spirits were damaged. How would they carry on? Some had regret, some had remorse. They stuck around even though they didn't want to. All they really wanted to do was scurry back to the locker room.

Smiles was burnt upon their faces. Long laughs were let out after what they had done. It made them feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Fists were flying up in the air. They had everything to gain and nothing to lose at this point. They had claimed their rightful place upon the mountain top. Nothing could stop them.


WALHT: visualise from a text.
The soft fur of the dog felt like silk against my skin and her black coloring glistened as it absorbed the sunlight, reflecting it back as a perfect, deep, dark mirror.
Screenshot 2017-06-14 at 9.47.04 AM.png
We were learning how to visualise from a text. We had to read a piece of text then draw a picture of it. I thought that I was successful because I followed the success criteria. The visualising was easy but when it came to drawing the actual picture that was tricky. I was also able to make inferences from the text which proved that last week's learning actually helped. Next I would like to learn if it is harder to do I it with longer texts or shorter.

We have been learning about angles in class. We learnt there are 7 different type of angles, obtuse, right, acute, straight, reflex and revolution angles. We had masking tape on our desk and used protacters to measure the angles of them.

Reading Test Results

I had my reading test the other day. I got a 5p which is really good. I think that I can still do better though. Next I want to get in the sixes. So I have to push myself.

Whistle-Personification Poem

He screamed with deep regret
There were furious and depressed boys
He felt as though he had just led the entire world down
As he walked away he could hear people blaming each other
They were furious!

He yelled at the top of his lungs to restart
But no one could hear him
Over all of the ragged  
Stuff was getting thrown at him
The ball had been kicked at him
He had been balled over...

The Our World Show

On Thursday the 25th of May a select group of students attended the science roadshow. The last thing that we attended was the our world show. In this show, they showed us the all of the different gadgets that wouldn't work with out the world working with it. For example an x-ray wave is below the visible wave in the electromagnetic spectrum, however just become we can't see something doesn't mean that it is not there so people use x-ray machines which pretty much are just more powerful eyes so they can see the waves passing through. There are also machines that do the same thing for ultra violet waves and infrared waves

What am I? Personifaction Poem

WALHT: write a poem using personification

As I am punched
With a tightly clenched fist
I rush through the air
With a breeze trying to stop me

Then gravity pulls me down
It keeps on dragging me down
Then all of a sudden
I am hit with a forearm

I feel the same rush flying through the air
I feel fingers and hands all over me
I hit the ground with the force of a falling wrecking ball
I hear screaming and cheering as I am just laying there in wait

What am I?

Expanding Metal Experiment


On Thursday the 25th of May a select group of students attended the science roadshow. One of the experiments was a expanding metal experiment. Where you had to blow dry some metal rods with a hair dryer and you would see that the scale showed that the metal was getting heavier and heavier because it was expanding. This showed that when metal is put under high heat then metal expands.

Hand Kettle Investigation

On Thursday the 25th of May a select group of students attended the science roadshow. One of the experiments was a hand kettle experiment. Where you had to put your hands around a hour glass shaped object on the bottom then if you looked at the top you could see that it was bubbling. This showed that the human hands carry enough heat to boil some liquids.

Rugby Game

Yesterday, Marist Eastern under thirteen restricted (weight for under thirteens it is 55kgs and under), played against Marist St Pieters. It was our first game since we had a scrum training session.  If you looked at our first scrum of the season to our latest you can see that we are scrummaging completely differently. We are all pushing together and not just relying on the front row, which I am in playing tighthead prop (number 3). I received the player of the day award  from my forwards coach Paul (in the picture)which is a buy 1 get 1 free dominos pizza voucher for my good scrummaging and rucking. If we could just get a bit more practice with the locks, flankers and number 8 then I believe that we would have a very strong scrum with lots of power.

Light Blocker Investigation

On Thursday the 25th of May a select group of students attended the science roadshow. One of the experiments was a light blocker experiment. Where you had to look into a box when the lid was closed which blocked out all of the light and then you did it again with the lid open so that light would come in. This showed that you can't see anything without, it also showed that we need light otherwise life would become really hard.

Chemical and Physical Changes

On Thursday the 25th of May a select group of students attended the science roadshow. The first thing that we attended was the physical and chemical show. In this they showed us the difference between physical and chemical changes. A chemical change is when you change something that makes something new usually with no chance to be reversed and a physical change is when you change something and it still stays the same but can also be reversed.

Migration of Māori

Ms. Maude says...

If we dive deep into Maori history you will find the story of Kupe and how he was responsible for finding Aotearoa. Kupe hailed from Hawaii. He liked octopuses, but here was on particular octopus that he chased all around the pacific. When he landed though, he landed one the north island of Aotearoa. As it had got no current inhabitants is was available to anyone that wanted it as their homeland. So he sailed back to Hawaii and informed 7 chiefs that he has found land. Then they set off heading for Aotearoa. They traveled to Aotearoa but when they had reached it the Chief of the Te Arawa waka informed the Chief of the Tainui waka that they had lost their navigator so they would have to use their's Ngatoroirangi.

I would recommend this book to me because my mum, my dad and my brother appeal to would not enjoy it. As the are far older than the target audience which I think is 8-12 year olds. Also, this is a really good book to learn alliteration fromas there is an example on almost every page.

Evil Twin

“Robbery down at Central City Bank,” yelled Detective West as he bolted down the stairs.
“Get the command unit down there, pronto!” yelled a police officer who also scurried down the stairs. Detective West rushed to Central City bank going as fast as a cheetah. Down  a huge crowd had formed. The command unit was already there cutting people off and clearing out the bank. Victor Mcintosh walked out in handcuffs accompanied by two officers. Victor Mcintosh, a well known doctor who discovered how to create the V9 serum made himself billions.
“We got him boss, he was the only one in there and when we found him cowering in a corner. He had two different backpacks full of golden bars,” yelled one of the officers with rather croaky voice.

The police officer shoved Victor into the police car. While this was all going on Harrison was sitting in front of his tv eyes glued to screen. He had just watched Victor been taken out of the bank and he couldn't help noticing the remarkable resemblance between the two of them. Harrison knew that Victor was innocent (Harrison’s day job was a lawyer), so he spent the next few days preparing facts and eyewitness statements. Even though Victor had a lawyer he was going to enter the courtroom and prove his innocence.

The next day was the court case and Harrison got dressed up in his suit and headed off to the courthouse. He went right in and started proving Victor to be innocent. At the end of the case the bank showed CCTV footage showing that Victor had got quite heated then took the gold that was right next to him then the camera cut out. However, Judge Wells believed that Victor was innocent, but that Harrison was guilty! So he was sentenced to five years in prison! He had to think of another plan.

Harrison asked that the Crime Scene Investigation Unit be sent down to the bank to investigate and so they did. The police had to shut down the bank so the the Crime Scene Investigation Unit lead by Wallie Wellsbury could work. They found some pretty interesting secrets like the safe lock which was frozen shut and burn mark all over the floor and walls. However, the strangest thing was hail stones weighing one hundred kg over all of the weighted pressure plates which coincidently was the weight of everything that was stolen.
“Whoever, did this is either a metahuman or a really weird meteorologist obsessed with their work,” said Wallie Wellsbury in a very sarcastic voice. “I am pretty sure that Harrison didn’t do any of this so I guess that we can set him free.”

The next day Harrison was let out even though he had only been in there for a week it felt like he had been in there for a year. Harrison went straight home and took a long and comfy nap on his own bed. Harrison realized that none of the would have happened if he hadn't stuck his nose where it didn’t belong.

Sacrifice Needed For This Job

Screenshot 2017-05-08 at 2.17.10 PM.png

This article showed up in the NZ Herald and I totally agree with this poster because phones are ruining people's lives. The average 20-25 year-old spends nearly 5 hours a day on a phone! That is way too much. Basically, if you get a job you are expected to do the job. You get paid to actually work not to turn up then go one your phone. However, there has to be some liberty if there is an emergency because if there isn't your house could be on fire and you wouldn't be able to be contacted because you are prohibited from accessing your phone.
