physical activity

Want to feel better? Then physical exercise is the right thing for you. This writing is going to tell you all about how to be physically exercise and what the benefits are for physical activity. Physical activity can help strengthening your muscles and having a lower risk of type 2 diabetes and cancer. staying fit and strong is way better than sitting at home and eating, so why don’t you exercise. 


#1 Reducing deadly disease

 Exercising can help develop muscles but can also prevent you from dying from a rare disease like cancer or type 2 diabetes. Eating healthy can exercise the brain because the more vitamins and protein you have in your body can help you think a lot better. Another way is to run around after you eat because if you eat and sit around then you might get obesity.       
#2 loosing weight

 If you are like most people you just want to exercise because you want to look better than what you looked like before. But if you actually wanted to live a longer life, you would exercise to avoid deadly diseases. I am a child so I don’t know that much from an adults perspective, but I think physical activity is better for the brain and for the body.
#3 Physical activity being fun

Physical activity is anything actually, If you are moving your body then u are physically moving. Dancing can be a physical activity, so you can actually make exercising fun. Sports can be another activity because your running and also its fun.
If you are someone lazy or not active, Or doesn’t want to get off the couch, then consider these ideas to live a longer life. Physical activity doesn’t have to be painful it can be fun and it can really help you in life, Just Believe!

Team building recount

The day arrived, when the yr 8’s left to go camp, and the year 7’s stayed at school. The year 8’s left and all the year 7’s were jumping with joy. The  year 7’s got to do team building! What is team building? Well it is 3 days of absolute fun! It pretty much is working together as a team and trying to get to know other people better. We had 6 groups and a score board. I was in the Blue Dogs (the blue team). There were a variety of activities but I am going to talk about 1 thing, how we failed at SLIME!

It was our first day doing team building and we had to do our rotations. It was our first thing to do. What was it? We were making SLIME!  Slimy, gooey, messy, those are all the words that explained what we were doing, and making. Slimy, gooey stuff that spilled everywhere, It was sticky, it was runny and it was gross!  We spilled it everywhere, not just on the table but also on the floor!

Some of us made slime and some of us didn’t, but it was because of the glue. We followed all of the instructions. But we still failed. We wondered why? But that's when we realized that the glue  that we used was the wrong one. So we wasted most of the ingredients to try and help, but the more we put in ingredients the more of a clean up we had to do later. everything was on the floor My group had to stay and clean up. That was my least favourite thing about the whole 3 days. But it was actually fun.

Overall I would say that I had a fun time. It was also kind of funny how much mess 1 group can make in 30 mins. Everything spilled on the ground and mostly everywhere but we all had fun and all worked as a team and cleaned up the mess that we made. So from my perspective I think that it was fun,it was a good way to spend time with our friends and I would definitely do it again!

Maths today!

Maths:


Fractions Finale

What is ½ the same as? 2/4

What is ⅓ the same as? 2/6

What is 2/4 the same as? 1/2

What is ⅙ the same as? 2/12


I want to add ½ with ¼. First I change ½ to  2/4  then I add the other quarter to make 3/4

⅓ + ⅙. ⅓ = 5/6 

¼ + ⅛.  ¼ = 9/8

How can I change ⅔ into sixths ( 4/6)?


How can I change ⅔ into twelfths ( 5/12)


⅓ + ¼ = 7/12

⅓ = 2/6  ¼ =2/8


⅓ + ⅕ = 8/15

⅓ = 2/6  ⅕ = 2/10

⅙ + ⅛ = 14/48

⅙ = 2/12   ⅛ =2/16



⅓ + 1/7 = 10/21

¼ + ⅕ =9/20

⅓ + ⅖ =8/15

1/10 + 1/100=110/1000

1/10 + 1/1000= 101/1000

Fia Fia term 1

Fia Fia? what is Fia Fia? well fia fia is a cultural festival that pt England school has every second year. fia fia is a great way to boost other peoples confidence. it is also a great way to represent your culture and your style of dancing. Theres a variety of groups to perform in, and you can choose which one you want to be in. you can chose 1-3 groups.

On Thursday last term, we held our annual fia fia. I was in the kapa haka group, and we performed first. we performed 4 items. on thursday it was also the last day of the term and it was a great way to end term 1 2018. everybodys performance was amazing but i couldn't stay for the whole entire thing, because it was raining.  but fortunately i could watch it from home on the live stream that they were streaming from the night. we held our fia fia on our school grounds, we put the stage on the field. overall I personally loved fia fia night because i got to see all the other groups perform.
