Summer Learning Journey, Week 2, Day 5, Activities 1,2,3

The first activity was to say whether you think people who over fish shouldn't or should pay a fine of $100,000. I think it is fair because fishes are a living creature and their lives have the same value as ours. Fish play a big part in taking care  of the ocean, like cleaning corals and helping other bigger fish to stay clean. If we kill all of the fish we wont have anything to eat either. So people who over fish will be getting lots of food for themselves but in the future the people who want to have fish for dinner will have to go to the trouble of finding a new fishing spot.
The second task was to list down two polluted rivers and then write down the name of the rivers the location of the rivers and what is being done to help these rivers if anything.The two rivers I chose are:
Waikirikiri (Selwyn) River and the Karamu Stream.
Waikirikiri river flows through the Selwyn district of Canterbury in the south island of New Zealand. A fish and game led project is restoring the lake spawning habitat of the snake creek.
The Karamu stream is located in Napier. More than 20,000 trees have been planted across Karamu river.
The third and final activity of the week is to list down three ways to make money to preserve the great barrier reef of Australia. My first way to fund raise is start a give a little page and then make an advertisement on my blog. My second way to raise money would be to start a show or a musical or a play so that we can raise money by the tickets that have been bought to see the show. And my last way would be to start up some kind of charity box and a committee and every week they have to put in whatever amount of money into the charity box they want to and then after every year we donate the money to Australia.

Summer Learning Journey, Week 2, Day 4 activities 1,2,3.

The first task was to tell the readers on your blog whether you'd like to Visit Milford sound on a boat a helicopter or a walking trail. I would want to go on the boat because it would be a nice relaxing boat ride in the waters of Milford sound and I really like water so I would want to be near it. You also get a good view of everything from lower down and it just makes the air of majesty intensify.
The second task was to list down 3 to 5 options of a new name you would want to name the devils bath from Rotorua's Wai-o-Tapu thermal wonderland.
Here are my suggestions
1. Devils wine

3. Lime poison
For the third activity we had to get a selfie and then explain what we think is happening I chose this selfie:

In this photo I think this woman is posing for a selfie of herself in front and above a part of a city. I think the city might be Athens, Greece but i'm not sure. I think the woman stands on the edge of a building to get cool picture. She starts to take a few photos. The photos are all a bit hard to take because she is up high and doesn't want to fall. I think she might be Taking a photo to remember her time at wherever she is. I think after a few tries she'll get the perfect picture. Then she'll post it on some sort of social media site like Instagram or Facebook.

Summer Learning Journey, Week 2, Day 3, activities 1,2,3

The first task was to tell people viewing my blog whether i'm a 'Night Owl' (someone who llikes the night and isn't particularly a Morning person) or if i'm an early riser. I wake up when my alarm clock rings on the weekdays and get ready for school. I don't let my alarm clock ring on the weekends so I can lie in bed for a little while then i wake up and watch TV.
The second task was to list down ingredients of your favourite food. My favourite food is Lasagna for lasagna you need.
Lasagna noodles
Ground beef

Sugar
Parsley
Basil
Fennel Seed
salt

The next task was a maths problem. If an adult can lift 25 kg and a child can lift 15 kg, How many adults and children will it take to lift a 500 kg squid. There are many answers so I decided to go with my own number of kilograms for each group of adults and children to carry. The children got 75 kilograms between them and the adults got 425. Here is a picture of my working out.

Summer Learning Journey, Week 2, Day Two, Activities 1,2,3

For the first task we had to say whether we wanted to try out flax weaving. I think I would like to give it a try. I do a lot of things like origami and hang it on my ceiling so it would be nice to have some flax weaving hanging off my ceiling because flax weaving connects to my culture.

Image result for thorThe second task was to tell everyone about someone who you think is strong and tough and tell them why you think they're strong. I decided to go with Thor from the avengers. He is a very strong character not only because he can lift his awesome hammer mjolnir which means he is very strong and worthy. But also because he lost it all. He lost his family, his people and most importantly, He lost his girlfriend, and after he lost all of that stuff he was one of the people who came the closest to defeating Thanos. (by closest i mean he literally got his hammer into Thanos' chest.)

The Third activity was to choose two strange plants and list three different and similar things about them. I chose the Venus fly trap and the pitcher plant. The Venus fly trap and the pitcher plant both eat insects and small animals. They both attract their: The pitcher plant is an attracting colour and has an attracting smell, and the Venus fly trap has sugar lining its leaves. And the plants both digest the animals and insects they catch. The Venus fly trap only grows on the ground, whereas the pitcher plant hangs and grows from the ground. The pitcher plant has a juice to kill its prey and the Venus fly trap just squashes up its pray. You can find Venus fly traps in Eastern Carolia and you can find pitcher plants in South East Asia.

Summer Learning Journey Week 1, Day 5 Activities 1,2,3

The first task is to say why I want/don't want Loggers in New Zealand. Stating two reasons why I would want them in New Zealand. I wouldn't mind having loggers in New Zealand within reason. As  long as they don't cut down any endangered tree's such as the Kauri tree. I want loggers in New Zealand Because wood is what we need to make a lot of materials like, chairs, tables,houses, and Paper. The second reason why i wouldn't mind loggers staying in the country Is because they are working hard and probably have been for a long time and if you just take away their jobs it'll just be harder for them to get another job and master it like they did with their previous one.
The second task was to write a letter to a friend or family member about what a visit to the tundra was like. I will write a letter to my friend Venice.

Dear Venice
I Have just gotten to the tundra, and its VERY cold. There's almost nothing around, Its really just snow. We have started learning about something called Permafrost. That's when there is a layer of the ground and it stays frozen over the entire year. Where here in the summer so it will be very short, the winter is very long and the summer is quite short. There are hardly any animals but there are some tundra wolves, and arctic hares. I wish you could have been with me on this trip.
Sincerely Bethan

The Final activity for the week is to write about life in New Zealand. I have to be sure to paint a picture in other peoples heads. New Zealand is a very nice place. I think it has the perfect mixture of all the seasons.When the summer is out that is when the beach is the best. And our largest city Auckland is quite a site with lots of towering business buildings and winding roads and streets. Many people go to Auckland city to eat at the restaurants and have delicious food.
In the summer during Christmas (yes you can have Christmas in the summer) you can often see families at the beach or having a Barbecue. The beaches in New Zealand are usually quite nice and most of the community is very friendly. The winter and autumn are usually the same the only difference usualy being that autumn is when the leaves fall off and winter is when there are usually no leaves. New Zealand is a great place.

Summer Learning Week 1, Journey Day Four Activities 1,2,3

For the first task of day four of the summer learning journey was to post five questions to ask Sir Edmund Hilary. Here are my five.

1. How long did it take to master the art of Mountain climbing?

2. Have you ever had any injuries because of mountain Climbing?

3. What was your favourite mountain climbing trip and why?

4. Who has been the most supportive in your mountain climbing journey?

5. When did you find out you loved mountain climbing?

The second task is to say one of your favourite food and how to make it.

One of my favourite dishes is spaghetti bolognese. You make it by boiling spaghetti in hot water. While you are boiling the spaghetti, put some oil in a pan and then add mince. once the mince looks brown add whole peeled canned tomatos in the pan add any spices or herbs you want stir the pan. After a little while have a taste of the mince. if it tastes good serve the pasta onto a plate and put the bolognese on the spaghetti. add some grated cheese to the top while it's still hot and then serve.

The third task is to design my own hotel. I would build my hotel out of class and build it underwater near a healthy coral reef. I would make a pyramid entirely out of triangles. The only thing that won't be a triangle is the tube that goes up to the surface where there will be glass platforms going over the surface of the water. These platforms will allow the people staying at the hotel to go to the mainland and do what they want. People will want to explore the hotel as well so I will have a few extra large pyramids to be gaming rooms, common rooms, and galleries. So that the stayers at the hotel can eat I will have the biggest Pyramid in the centre of it all there will be an all you can eat Buffet. If I were to make a hotel this ambitious description of my hotels would be what I would have designed, and built.

Summer Learning Journey Week 1, Day Three Activities 1,2,3

The first activity is ton create your own fantastic beast. I ended up making a beast called a Slyfarn. It has the features of a camel, rhino, cow and crocodile, along with my own touches. The dangly bits underneath its mouth pick up noises and heat waves. The claws on the Slyfarns feet are poisonous and used for defence. The Slyfarn is an omnivore the only meat it eats being small birds and fish.

























The next task was to list down three pros and three cons of being a ranger. My pros are you get to be around lots of animals, that you are working for a cause to keep animals safe, and that animals around you aren't usually scared of you like most animals are. My cons would be I spend most of my time around animals and not family and friends, My family have to live far away because they aren't aloud to live on an animal reserve, and taking care of the animals also means to clean up after them eeeeewwww. I wouldn't mind being a ranger because we get to be around  animals but I would rather want out help other people by being a doctor. I think i'd rather be a vet than a ranger.

The third task was to watch a video from the WWF about either freshwater seals or tigers and then answer in full sentences what the name of the animal is. What the WWF is doing to help this creature, and What, if any, success have they had in protecting the animal. 

The animal I chose are freshwater seals which live in Lake Baikal. The freshwater seals give birth to their pups on snowbanks, so the WWF are creating snowbanks for the seals to give birth to their pups in. Nothing tells me wether the progress has been good or not so i don't know if the progress is good or bad.

Summer Learning Journey Week 1, Day Two, Activities 1,2,3

The first task for day two of the summer learnig journey week one was to say why you would want to go to Tane Mahuta, the giant Kauri tree in northland.

I would want to go there because it is an amazing marvel of nature and what it can do. The tree is very famous and I would want to go visit because its a really awesome tree and its amazing that its grown so big. It will also be amazing to go there with my family and friends to marvel at the amazing creation of nature.

The second task is to list three sports teams that have the word fern in their teams title, and post a picture of their uniform next to the list of sports names. After I do that I have to say what my favourite uniform is and why I like it the most.


  • Silver ferns
Image result for silver ferns NZ uniform
  • Black ferns
Image result for black ferns NZ uniform
  • White ferns
Image result for white ferns NZ uniform

My favourite uniform is the white ferns uniform because it has one of my favourite colours, and it looks original. It is not like the Black ferns uniform which almost looks exactly like the all blacks rugby uniform, and it isn't a dress like the silver ferns uniform (I have nothing wrong with dresses i love dresses just not dresses that look like they might show your bloomers). Plus the uniform looks really comfortable.

The second activity is a maths problem. The maths problem is 3ml times 365. I decided to work it out on my notebook and multiplied by cutting down the biggest variable into 300, 60, and five. I multiplied them by three one by one and got 1095.


Summer Learning Journey Week 1, Day One, Activity 1,2,3

The first task in the summer learning journey is to list down three facts from this website and share three facts in my own words. Here are those three facts

  • 30% of New Zealand is forest and bush.
  • New Zealand is one of the three countries with 2 national anthems with epual status, God defend New Zealand and God save the queen.
I hope you enjoyed the blog post of three facts told in my own words.

The second task was to write down why I love my hometown. Here it is.

My City is Auckland but I live near Point England in the east side of the north island. I really like living there because it has a great school the gives children different opportunities, and the beach is so nice. The sand is nice and hot between your toes and the water is nice and calm and fun to swim in.

Task number three was to write down how to be cybersmart inside of a foot. Here it is.

Tea Bag Flame Science Explanation

Today in room four our teacher Mrs Stone decided to show us a tea bag trick. She got rid of the tea leaves inside of the tea bag and unfolded it. She made the teabag a pipe of sorts. Once she set it down on the chair she lit it on fire. The fire moved down the tea bag and then it flew into the air.

But why did it fly? How does it happen? Its all because of the heat. Heat is a form of energy and it always rises. Its like a hot air balloon the hot air that goes into the air pushes against the walls of the tea bag and once the fire reaches the bottom of the tea bag, the tea bag remains fly into the air.

If my explanation wasn't good enough click this link to understand further and see what i'm talking about.

Te Wa Toi art Project.

For Te Wa Toi I decided to make a heart with a manaiakalani hook in the middle. I carved in the words I love you P.E.S From Bethan. The hook represents the school and the manaiakalani cluster. The heart represents MY love and the red of the heart represents my passion and how much I love Pt England school.

The heart was the easiest design and i felt that it would be a bit boring so i decided to etch a design into the heart, and that design was the hook. I hope you think it looks okay.

Dear Reader: A Satire Writing

Walt: use satire to express meaning

Dear Reader
You MUST read the piece of writing under this letter. It is my best piece of work. Based around the story of a young girl and her dog. You must read it because it is the best piece of writing you will ever encounter in your miserable life. Ha it might even make your life happy.

Don’t be ridiculous Mabel Darling. Swashbucklers of Davanet was a wonderful piece of writing. It had five stars on Safrina Reviews.

That’s because Safrina Reviews is your YouTube channel. It has 6 subscribers and they’re all your family members.

Nonsense it has 7 subscribers. But that’s not the point. Now let me finish my letter.

Huff. Fine. But i’m warning you reader her writing isn’t the best. It's the “most amazing in the world”.

Thank you Mabel! Now where was I ah yes. Read the story and subscribe to my YouTube channel Safrina Reviews. Here is the writing. Enjoy. Lots of love and merci. Safrina Belladonna

Once upon a time there was a girl and a dog the girl loved the dog but the dog didn’t love her. So with lots of treats and tummy rubs the girl one the dogs cupboard love. They are the best of friends. The end.

Safrina I honestly have no idea how you pay your bills.

I work as a waitress at the coffee club

Oh well that's an okay job

True

Paideia Seminar Term 3 Yr 7&8 Extension.

Today in extension we had the Paideia seminar for term three. We were all split into different groups: The Nutritionists, Doctors, Parents, Shop Owners, Teachers. I was in the nutritionist group with Makayla. We shared different opinions about what we thought in our groups perspective. One of the most intriguing facts that i heard was what Justice said. He said that "50% of Maori adults are obese and 69% of pacific adult are obese" which was very scary for Mrs Lagitupu even got him to repeat it. I think it was the most interesting fact we heard. Another one of the most intriguing facts for me was that in America 600,000 people die every year because of heart disease.

The Paideia Seminar was a really interesting seminar of sharing facts and information. I achieved my goal as well: not to talk to much. Maybe you should get into practising like this it is a good skill to be able to develop language skills like that.

How to Prepare for the Cross Country

Walt: Use cause and effect language in our writing

In our school we have the cross country, and it is for all of the year groups. When we prepare for it we do a lot of running. But a big problem is we only prepare for the physical side of it, and that’s only running, we need to prepare for mental and physical challenges. When we run a short distance it is good for our mental and physical health because it is giving us boosts in our Mental and physical well being. But when we do a long distance we are scared for our physical side and that affects our mental well being. In this piece of writing I will give you tips on how to prepare yourself for the cross country.

To improve our mental health we can say to ourselves “I can do this” and “This will be great” you fake it till you make it and then it gets carried to your heart. When you’re running and you feel bad you can say encouraging  things like “I will do this” and that seems to be really helpful. Professional athletes often have trouble with this but now is a good time for you to start.

That was mentally preparing what about physically preparing? Well good question. At school we do running but at home you can prepare well too. You can have a healthy balanced diet and get plenty of rest at home you will have lots of energy and it will be burned of. As well as some of your body fat. That gets burned when you do exercise and turns into energy.

When the race starts you can go at a nice easy jog. Because then you wouldn’t have burned up all your energy and won’t have trouble running the whole way. You can also pace yourself. Go nice and easy the entire way because then you won't have to stop or walk some parts.

Those are my tips for preparing for the cross country. I hope that they are useful to you. Who knows? You might even come first next time.

Task Description: For this task i made a new dock filed it and turned it in. I wrote in my Work using the structure T.I.I.C (Title,Introduction,Information,Conclusion). I then posted it onto my blog to a high standard.

Attitude Puberty Talk Recount

Today Tony from attitude decided to talk to us about puberty. He told us that we physically and mentally change while we go through this. He started with a talk for both of the genders and then broke down to different parts.

First he talked about how our bodies physically change. He told us that we grow hair everywhere, we get pimples everywhere and we sweat …….... Everywhere. He told us to always have a plan. One thing he told me that I thought was interesting was that if your skin is dehydrated then your skin has no dots when they do the test.

Then he went into the mental changes like when you are going through puberty you seem to be more embarrassed by things. Like when your mum and dad do “embarrassing things” we are all like “Ugh mum dad please just stop”. We also notice that relationships change as we go through puberty we seem to notice the other gender. But he said we should just keep hold of our friendships.

Overall what “wonderful experience” it was.

Roasting Marshmallows on a Stick

On Wednesday the 10th of October my brothers, my dad, my stepmum and I all decided we would roast marshmallows on a stick and eat them with biscuits while my dad got the big clay pot and got the fire prepared Jayne and I went to the supermarket to get the Marshmallows and other supplies. When we got back the fire was going and things were ready to start roasting dad gave me a sharpened stick and i put on a marshmallow. My first marshmallows were a bit black and crisp but they still tasted delicious. Then I tried doing it just above the flickering flames. and it was the perfect brown shade. I at off the crispy bit then roasted the inside and did that until the marshmallow was completely eaten. A few times I put the marshmallow between a jaffa chocolate thin.

The holidays are a good time to do things like roast marshmallows. You should do it too instead of being a slouch and watching Netflix all day. Its healthy to

Beach Life in the Country

The Sun's Ray's are like a warm Kiss
Apollo's gift is a wonderful bliss

If I could i would bottle it up
In a jar or maybe even a cup

Then i could take it anywhere
And be in bliss everywhere

The sun warms the sand which slips through my fingers
And leaves a tingly feeling which always lingers

When we leave there's cows all over the road
we think we've past them But theirs more a whole load

This is what its like at the beach in the country
Where the beach is quiet and the road is crunchy

Rich and Famous P.O.V

Walt: Consider Both sides of an argument

In my personal opinion I think that being Rich and famous in a celebrity situation wouldn’t really make me happy. For a lot of celebrities being rich and famous is just a homing beacon for paparazzi or scandal or social media. A lot of celebrities that are children of other celebrities are also pressured like everyone is expecting them to be almost as good as their parents, but they want to be something different than their parents.

To be honest I think I would just want to be rich. Because I could get a lot of opportunities that not much people could get. I could help my children and family and that is what would make me Happy. I think that I would rather help people than entertain people in music and movies I would make a lot of money being a doctor or surgeon.

But some famous people aren’t celebrities. Some are really famous authors like J.K Rowling and Rick Riordan. They don’t earn as much money as the celebrities but they are pretty famous and they seem happy because people aren’t as obsessed with them. So I think I might like to be an author fame wise. That would be the only fame that would make me happy.

Task Description: For this task I made a google doc and started writing my opinion on wealth and fame on the doc. I then shared it onto the class discussion. after i shared it onto the class discussion i posted it onto my blog with a Walt, a Task Description, a Title, and Labels.

Remake of Rumplestiltskin

Walt: use descriptive vocab to paint a picture in your readers mind

Once upon a time there was a miller and he had a beautiful daughter. One day the miller went to the king and boasted about how her daughter was amazing.

“She is the best girl in the land sire.” said the Miller “No one is fairer the her she has fair golden hair and glistening green eyes and uhh … she can do amazing things like weave gold from straw.”

That caught the kings attention. He ordered the miller to bring his daughter to the castle. He took the beautiful miller's daughter to the hay storage room.

“Make this straw into gold.” Said the King, and with that he slammed the door, locked it tight and walked to his buffet. The Miller's daughter wept and wept for she could only make straw into silver. Suddenly a little man came in.

 “Do not worry” said the little man “I will spin this straw into gold for you. But what will you give me in return.”

“I will give you the ring from my finger” said the miller's daughter and she slid off the ring and gave it to the little man. By the time that the little man finished making the straw into gold. The little man disappeared from sight. The king came in and was impressed. He took her to a bigger room with even more straw

“Weave this straw into gold.” He said. “Have it done by the morning.

“But sire” said the miller’s daughter “all that weaving has weakened me. I can only weave silver now”

“Very well” said the king. “Weave the straw into silver.” He shut the door locked it tight and went to his brothers wedding. The miller’s daughter weaved the silver and never needed the little man again, and many years later she married the king and they had a beautiful baby boy and lived happily till the end of their lives

Title: Don't worry 'bout a thing/Your health and body

Original
Madcon ft Ray Dalton
Ooh we can own the night don't worry 'bout a thing
Don't worry 'bout a thing
Don't worry 'bout a thing
Ooh we can own the night don't worry 'bout a thing
Don't worry 'bout a thing

I know we'll be alright don't worry 'bout a thing
Don't worry 'bout a thing
Don't worry 'bout a thing
I'll take you to the future
Forget about the past
You can keep all of your secrets
I swear that I won't ask
Let go of all your troubles
I don't care where you've been
The only thing that matters now
Is where the night will end
Them bright big lights are shining on us
That beat so tight it makes you wanna
Get up, get down like there's no tomorrow
Like there's no tomorrow
Like there's no tomorrow
Ooh we can own the night don't worry 'bout a thing
Don't worry 'bout a thing
Don't worry 'bout a thing
I know we'll be alright don't worry 'bout a thing
Don't worry 'bout a thing
Don't worry 'bout a thing (c'mon)
Ooh we can own the night don't worry 'bout a thing
Don't worry 'bout a thing
Don't worry 'bout a thing
Let's get down to business
And show me what you got
Just keep the record spinning
The music never stops
You wanna live forever
And reach above the stars
Let's take it to next level
Just light the spaceship up
Them bright big lights are shining on us
That beat so tight it makes you wanna
Get up get down like there's no tomorrow
Like there's no tomorrow
Like there's no tomorrow
Ooh we can own the night don't worry 'bout a thing
Don't worry 'bout a thing
Don't worry 'bout a thing
I know we'll be alright don't worry 'bout a thing
Don't worry 'bout a thing
Don't worry 'bout a thing (c'mon)
Ooh we can own the night don't worry 'bout a thing
Don't worry 'bout a thing
Don't worry 'bout a thing
Yeah on the rooftop
Surrounded by the stars and the views hot
Ain't nobody thinking 'bout what you got
Everything's ours, wanna dip? Get a new spot
Yeah, don't worry, don't worry
The night never ends, no hurry no hurry
Shorty look thick and the lines get blurry
And the nights in your palm so we might get dirty
DJ, let the beat play, make a heat wave, when you replay this
Tonight we gone party like it's D-Day
Young and free saying this the one on my CK ****
The moon is the light, sky is the ceiling
The low is the base and the high is the feeling
The world is the club, all in 'cause we can
This' one for the books don't worry bout a thang
Ooh we can own the night don't worry 'bout a thing
Don't worry 'bout a thing
Don't worry 'bout a thing (I got you)
I know we'll be alright don't worry 'bout a thing
Don't worry 'bout a thing
Don't worry 'bout a thing
Don't worry 'bout a thing
Don't worry 'bout a thing
(C'mon!)
Ooh we can own the night don't worry 'bout a thing
Don't worry 'bout a thing
Don't worry 'bout a thing

Why you should exercise and what it does for you? - By Bethan

Do you like running? No? Do you like dancing? Yes? They may be different but they give you the same results: They Both give you an adrenaline rush, they both give you sweaty pits, they are both aerobic exercise. Once you finish reading this piece of writing you will want to get up and go for a run, or go to zumba class, or do something that gets you sweating.

The first reason that you should be doing exercise right now is because It reduces the risks of obesity, stroke, heart disease and a whole lot more. Exercise helps you in so many ways it gets the heart pumping which gives oxygenated blood to the brain, you can see how that would help you in you term essay right. As well as giving good blood to the brain it gets your lungs working as well, meaning more oxygenated blood, meaning happy brain.

Exercise also helps the release of hormones which make your brain cells increase in growth rate. It helps refresh the brain plasticity which help form new connections in cells in a wide range of cortical areas in the brain. In a study done at the university of british columbia it has been proven that exercise helps increase the size of the hippocampus.

The final reason you should be exercising right now is because every time you sit down it increases the amount of energy that gets turn into fat. The more you exercise the more fat you burn. Many children these days are obese because they are sitting down more than they are running around doing exercise.

So get up off your butt and run around. Go to zumba! Why are you still here? Go away, stop reading this. I’m telling you to go away and ride your bike or walk your dog or do something that will get you sweating. Because that is the exercise that helps you get better in life.

Sustaining Ourselves

Walt: address the factors that can affect our well being


Next to each of these scenarios write down which area of your wellbeing is being affected - social/whanau, spiritual, mental/emotional or physical. You might find that they affect more than one area

Going for a run

Playing a sports game with others

Going to church, the marae, temple...

Listening to your favourite music

Eating fresh fruit and vegetables

Learning from a grandparent or caregiver

Taking part in a cultural club or activity

Getting enough sleep


Imagine you are part of the following scenarios. Make a decision that will positively impact on your wellbeing and note which aspect of your wellbeing is affected.

You and your older brother have been given some money to buy food for you and your younger siblings for the next few days. You are tempted to buy take away, but you have to buy enough food for breakfast, lunch (for school/pre-school) and dinner for two days.
In this scenario I would count how much money there is look online at the shopping centers website and try to fit in the food with the amount of money i have been given.

 You are having a really bad day and feel yourself getting angry and upset. You had a small argument with a friend earlier in the day, but you are now really angry at them. The bell will be ringing in ten minutes and you will have to sit next to this friend. What could you do?
I could Confidently walk towards my friend and sit down i would turn to her and apologise if he/she doesn’t reply then i will give them time to think about it if he/she forgives me then I will get back to being good friends

You have just changed schools and are missing your old friend and activities. At your old school you played for the school rugby team, but you have not played sport here, except for in P.E.
I would try to keep in touch with my old friends while Making new friends in school and I try out for the rugby team.

You are Tongan, but your parents were born and grew up in New Zealand. They taught you English since you were born so that you would find New Zealand life easier, but they did not teach you much Tongan. At school you see other students speaking Tongan and participating in Tongan clubs and dancing. Although you feel happy in New Zealand, you wish you could connect to your Tongan roots.
I would ask my parents about my roots and ask them to take me to my grandparents to learn the language and then I would participate in Tongan things.

Task Description: For this task I made a copy of the google doc and then put it in my inquiry folder. I then answered all the questions in a detailed manner. After finishing i published my work onto my blog with a detailed manner.
