Camp Ehxperience (Thank you St Ignatius)

First of all, I would like to thank st Ignatius for giving us the opportunity to experience Russell, Kerikeri, Waitangi and many more wonderful places we went to. Without your generous donations we wouldn't be able to have enough money to make our camp possible.

We all enjoyed the activities we played at night and the day. We all learned many historical Maori legends and stories from the past. Till this day and the future, we will never forget the amount of support you’ve produced for us. My personal favourite was when we went to the bay and got to learn about kayaking. Thanks to the (AFG) instructors I and my group learned how to kayak in no time.

We are most obliged for what you have done for us and once again I would like to say thank you for making our camp possible.

Technology

 Today at technology (Tamaki college) we built our own design for our self or for someone special we wanted to give it too. My design was a boat, a 80 mm long boat. Our Teacher for wood craving was Mr Grandi, he is really strict at times but that's what's funny about Mr Gradi. That's why Mr gradi suits he's job. We have 2 more weeks with Mr Grandi, so I'll do the best as I can do to make my design.

Earthquakes, 3 states of matter and insulation

For science intensive we learned about 3 special things... Earthquake's, the 3 states of matter and insulation. First of all I'd like to describe those 3 special things by starting with the best one I thing.

Earthquakes:
We learnt about Earthquakes with Mrs Sigamoni and it was amazing looking at one but If one comes your way, your in a load of trouble but luckily I have a way to be safe and to get out of your house when an earthquake occurs. First of all get down to the nearest table you can find, so you can get out harm from falling light's or any thing that's attached to the roof or if the roof collapse. When you make it down to the table try and make your way safely to the exit and there you go your out of your house. Here is a link you can find more information how earthquakes happen

3 States of matter: 
The 3 states of matter Gas, liquid and solid. It was incredible learning about the 3 states of matter and how it can form rain what's even better was the teacher that was teaching us Miss stone. Now i'm saying that Miss stone is the best teacher in the whole school but she was very cool when we were near both recess and interval.
Insulation:
It was fun learning about insulation because it's so surprising how it can make your house warm even when it's cold outside and when it's so hot outside, it can make your house nice and cool. The reason why a house with insulation can be warm and cold is because of the pink pads. Pink pads are made out of wool and cellulose, fibreglass, and mineral rock or slag.

Fitness with Mrs Gray

Today we had our morning fitness with Mrs Gray. sadly our teacher Mrs Tofa was sick so we had Mrs Gray.It was a lot different than what we had with Mrs Tofa because the only thing we done with Mrs Tofa was Stretching, than straight on to bulrush but today we had 3 rounds around the court than we got arranged into 2 lines to get ready for relay. After our relays we turned around and went straight to our (class room 7).

Today I and room 7 had lots of fun with miss stone, doing science. we learned about solid, liquid and gas and made a shape with chocolate. unfortunately our piping bag was already filled with dry chocolate so we couldn't make a good shape but it was fun trying.

Here is a little information about the G.I. history. My reading group "Weka", we worked on Glen Innes history and here is some facts from the article I read.
