Choosing A New Flag - June, Evelyn, Tiare & Tim

Here is what Evelyn, Tim, Tiare, and I have been working on this morning. Firstly we had to do 4, 3, 2, 1. On the fourth one, we had 4 minutes to read all of the information under the five flags. For the third one, we had three minutes to choose a partner and share a reason why you choose this For the second, we had 2 minutes to change your buddy and they had a quick reason why they choose that flag. On the first one, we had only 1 minute to form in a group of four and they each had to say why they have chosen that flag and why. Secondly we did this because we had pick a flag and then we had to share it on google drawing. 

The flag that I choose was the Silver fern ( Red, White, and Blue ). I choose this one because it brings out different cultures and different identities.

Term 4 Reply

LI:To reflect on personal goals set in Term 1.

Dear Term 1 Me,

Wow, what an incredible year I have had. Throughout the year I have achieved a lot of things and finally I am at the national standards YAY!!!. Well, at the beginning of the year I have been quite and a shy girl, well now I have been a confident enough that I can present as duffy role model, and a presenter for assembly. As I said, I have been involved in intersports and didn’t know I was sporty girl until this year. I have been doing my homework almost every week. I have achieved my subjects throughout the year. This year I have been doing science for my elective in term 3. I have a lot of friends and family who supports me in my learning. I had some up and down but I have some friend that stand beside. I have made new friends this year and I support them too. Throughout the year R5 had Miss Donaldson as our teacher for 6 weeks and that was really impressive. This year we have been going on school trips and my favourite was going to Rangitoto with other students. In term 2 the Year 7/8 have been at camp but I didn’t go to camp this year only my sister did. On fridays the Year 7/8 have been going to technology. Having Mrs Anderson as my teacher have been an awesome year.

Yours truly, June

This activity was really fun and it helped us to use the correct Equipment to make our ramp.

Story Swap - June and Jasmine.

A long time ago there was a house that was sitting there for centuries. The house had a creepy look to it. So I had a feeling to that I should go and check it out for myself. As I slowly walked up the stairs the creek in the wood got louder and louder then I finally open the door. I walked inside the house, the minute I stepped into the house my heart started racing and it felt like I missed a heart beat. As I walked more deeper and deeper into the house I started shaking like an earthquake was happening inside the room. So when i started shaking I had felt a shadow beside me like he was watching my every move I made. Room by room it got darker and darker so suddenly I came up to a room where there was lights to only find sometime that was only usable. Then BAM!! the door shut before my very eyes. I only had one way to get out, and that was to call call someone for help. So as I reached for my phone I finally call someone but none was there. So I tried again an finally someone picked up Yay but it felt like days went or even years pat. So I thought to my self would I have missing?

Nutrients DLO - June, Afu, Navid, Zahn.

This is our group presentation that we made with Zahn, Afu, Navid, and me. We made this by using Prezi and I think this is going wonderful. We made this because on Monday we had to go Pak n Save because it we were learning how to read labels for the food that we eat almost everyday. We found most interesting that the everyday food is the unhealthy food because it has lots of sugars and dietary fiber. For the occasional food it is the most healthy food but expensive. So we think that the everyday food is cheaper but not healthy and the occasional food is expensive but healthy.

Shot Put / Discus - Run, Jump, Throw

Run, Jump, Throw

shot put.JPG

Today R5 have been doing kiwisport called Run, Jump, Throw with Andie. She has been with us for four week teaching us how to do Run, Jump, Throw and I have been enjoying these lessons with her. Today Andie taught us how to do Shot Put and Discus. For Shot Put we had been taught catch phrases like dirty fingers, dirty neck, clean palm. All of phrases have meaning with it like for dirty fingers, you have to have the ball on your fingers, for dirty neck you have to make sure that the shot put ball have to touch you neck and make sure put underneath your ear so that you can throw it far. When you are throwing it make sure you chin - knee - toe all in a row, also elbows high, and low to high, watch it fly. For Discus you have to grip the discus thrower like a shelf, so if you out upside down the discus should fall out, make sure you grip on the third knuckle, then swing up, clap, bring back, chin knee toe, then last of all low to high, watch fly, then fling it fast.

Jerry Collins - June

This is my poster about Jerry Collins that I made by myself. This is all about Jerry Collins. We did this because we was killed by a car accident with his family.  

Breakfast In Schools - June

For my opinion I think that it’s a good idea to provide breakfasts in school because it could help students all over NZ to stay focused in their own learning and could be energized and ready for school.

Students all over NZ should be fed with breakfasts in their tummy. It is awfully sad that sometimes students aren't able to have breakfast and it could be because their parents rushing to go work.

I highly recommend the Kick start program because it could help schools around NZ to provide breakfasts to students. Kick start program have been helping schools around NZ because there are many children who go hungry and are not having breakfast. In NZ almost 400 schools are having Kick start program to help school in NZ.

Meanwhile, breakfast is the main meal of the day because it can get children to be energized and ready for school. Breakfast can provide you protein, nutrition and vitamins for your body so you can concentrate in your classroom. Also breakfast can fuel your brain and your body.

Did you know, that 15% of kids are not being able to eat breakfast in the morning. Also it is a good idea because it can help children to keep focus and concentrate in your learning so it can help you to stay focus.

How can we help change the minds of those who want to change the flag?

How can we encourage those not to change the flag?

How can we help to stop changing the NZ flag? I am a Samoan girl, how would I feel if my flag would get changed? I think My flag is better, because it has nice designs and a meaning with our flag. So why are people trying to change it. Is there any reason why?

Talofa students, why are we thinking about changing our flag. I already know that they are agree to change the flag but why can’t we leave as it is? Some people in NZ would been upset because there are many people who presented our flag and for us. 

If we do change our flag,  would it represent our faithful soldiers who fought for us? I don’t think so. Do you think our flag is boring  for New Zealand now? Is the new flag going to represent the New Zealanders? Would we even care about our flag? What if there could be problems towards the new flag, and then what a waste of 26 million dollars. 

My opinion will be always the same because the flag is important because other people couldn't believe if they did change the flag. It is important because it reflects on the soldiers that who fought for us and died for us. We all know that the flag is really similar to the Australian flag but we don’t have to change.  

My opinion is still not changing because it’s not right to change the flag, could it be recognised for the other countries. Sometimes people can change their mind over the flag because there are more important things then changing the flag.

Instead of changing the flag, there are more important things that need to get finished like spending the money on the Christchurch. Also to spend money for charities for school and foods for other people.

How are we going to be able to change our flag? Could this be our new begin towards our new flag? Is the money really worth changing this flag? What if they are going to change their minds about it?

Once again my opinion will never change because if they do change the flag how could this help you say no for stop changing the flag. Also remember keep in mind that there's people who fought for under the flag.
