My version of chapter 3

They Both looked at each other, Anton put on his jacket not because he was cold only because he was scared. They walked back to the house, They went to bed. Suddenly Anton wakes up, He thought he saw someone. Anton saw a person with white hair and saw him playing the clarinet. He was scared, He started to panic.  He ignored it then he saw someone else, with brown hair and he was playing the saxophone. He started to act suspicious, He had a weird feeling that the people were stan's grandfather and father. The next morning Anton told Stan what he saw. A person playing the clarinet with white hair and another person playing the saxophone with brown hair. Stan was curious because the people in Anton’s Dream was the same people as Captain Rickard and Alan Rickard. DUN DUN DUNNNNNNN!!!!!!!!
Task description: This task was all about predicting what the next chapter was. Also we had to listen actively to know what we were writing. We had to think creatively to write what we thought was going to be chapter three. After we wrote our version of chapter 3 we read the actual book and found out that some of our ideas were in the book.

Day 1 activity 3 SLJ

Activity 3: Ice, Ice Baby [10 points]
Antarctica is the world’s coldest continent. Even though it is made up of ice, it is also the driest continent in the world. In fact, it hasn’t rained there for nearly 2 million years! It is home to many animals such as whales, seals, birds, and fish. There are no permanent human residents (people who live there all the time) in Antarctica, however scientists do visit and stay in Antarctica for a while to study it.

This year the airline, Air New Zealand, filmed their safety video in Antarctica. They used some fabulous actors from Hornby Primary School in Christchurch. Just like on aeroplanes, we also need to keep safe and be smart online. We need to think about the type of information we are sharing online, who we are sharing information with, and how to have a positive digital footprint.

On your blog, make a copy of this footprint and, inside the footprint, explain how you create a positive, digital footprint. What do you do to stay smart online?
Task description: this is My 3rd activity for day 1 and it was about how to leave a positive footprint. In my photo just above is about how i leave a positive footprint. 

Day 1 SLJ activity 2

Activity 2: North and South [4 points]
The country of New Zealand is made up of two main islands – the North Island and the South Island. Approximately 77% of the New Zealand population live in the North Is
land. Many of these people (including our Summer Learning Journey design team) live in Auckland city. Auckland is a great place to live with lots of amazing parks, beautiful waterways and stunning scenery to enjoy. It is also a busy, vibrant city with many cafes, museums, galleries and theatres to visit. I feel lucky to call Auckland my ‘hometown.’
Now it is time to think about your hometown. What is special about where you live? On your blog, describe your hometown. Be sure to include lots of describing words (adjectives) in your post.
Auckland, New Zealand. What a wonderful place. All of the amazing suburbs within the city. All the many cafes, movie theaters, museums and also the great Sky tower. I am really happy to call Auckland, New Zealand my home because it is where I grew up and I just the community in Auckland and also the great scenery's. it is special to me because we were the first to let woman vote alongside with men, but also it is special to me because I feel safe in this environment and community. Last but not least, I love the people in Auckland Because the are really Nice and very helpful.

Task description:
This task was apart of the SLJ (summer learning journey) Programme. this week is about A PLACE TO STAND. this activity was about what i think about my hometown which is Auckland, New Zealand. This was really easy for me because I really life my hometown and it was really fun to share it with you guys.

Day 1 SLJ Activity 1

Ahhhhhh the start of school holidays, Feeling sad to leave 2018. anyways its the start of the holidays and what i am going to be doing throughout the holidays is to learn. it may seem boring to some people but I just want to improve my learning from this year make progress for next year.

DAY 1: In the Beginning...

Activity 1: The Legend of New Zealand [4 points]

According to Māori mythology, much of Aotearoa New Zealand was formed when Māui, a powerful demigod, fished it out of the sea. Legend has it that Māui created a magical fish hook from the jawbone of his grandmother and that one day he took his hook, boarded a boat, and rode out into the middle of the Pacific Ocean. Once at sea, he threw his magical hook into the water and caught a fish. This ‘fish’ was actually the North Island of New Zealand! In honour of this legend, the North Island of New Zealand is sometimes referred to as Te Ika a Māui or ‘Māui’s fish’ and the South Island of New Zealand is sometimes referred to as Te Waka a Māui or ‘Māui’s canoe’.

To learn more cool facts about New Zealand, check out the Tourism NZ website. Read the fun facts posted on the website and choose your ‘Top 3.’ On your blog, post your ‘Top 3 Fun Facts’ about NZ in your own words.
Out of all the amazing and fun related facts there were these are my top three:
1.  It was the first major nation to have universal suffrage. In 1893 all male and female citizens are legally allowed to vote. so this means that we were the first to let men and woman vote. I was really amazed at this fact because New Zealanders was the first to basically clarify equality to everyone.
2.The Auckland City Sky Tower is the tallest freestanding structure in the Southern Hemisphere at 328 meters high. so basically its saying that our Auckland sky tower is the tallest freestanding structure in the southern hemisphere!
3. This was the first country to have its three top positions of power held simultaneously by women; Prime Minister Helen Clark, Governor General Dame Silvia Cartwright and the Chief Justice Sian Elias. this means that us New Zealanders were the first to have not 1 but 3 top positions of power being run by women, Prime minster Helen Clark, Governor General Dame Silvia Cartwright and the chief Justice Sian Elias. 
Task description:
this task is apart of the SLJ (summer learning journey) and this week is about A PLACE TO STAND. My activity that I had to do today, was to go on a website look at all of the facts and comeback and pick three to summarize and post on my blog.

Astria game thoughts

A student in another school has recently blogged that:
“Students don’t learn much playing this game called Astria – Countdown to Impact: Their time could be better spent doing other things”.
Do you agree, disagree or partly agree/disagree?

Blog about what you think using evidence from the game to backup your views.
Today we had a visit from Another Naomi From the university of Auckland and she has showed us a new game called Astria. My job is to disagree with the statement above or to agree with it. I honestly Agree and disagree I agree because most of game is all about astroids and more. also you just giving your opinion. I also disagree with this statement because your giving your thoughts about what you are reading. Like a test, but much more fun. So that is my thoughts about the astria game.
