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.

Sequel to francis brandywine

The original Francis brandywine story
video link
The boat was found on shore the next day, empty but for the journal. On those pages were her frantic jottings, all written in her distinctive handwriting, all but the last page. When the journal was found, that page was still wet, and on it were four words, looking as if they'd been written quickly, with a muddy finger. They said, "I did knock first."
My Sequel of francis brandywine:

Francis brandywine was never seen again. She has been missing  for about three years now. No one knows where she went, and her family and friends were very devastated to hear she had gone missing. Her journal was left on the boat after she went missing, with the words “I did Knock first” on it. Detective wiseman took the journal and the boat as evidence of the missing crime.
Detective wiseman took the boat to get it analysed and found out that there were 2 peoples handprints on the boat. But francis was the only person in the boat. Detective wiseman was curious of who was the person knocking. They were searching for the exact same handprints and found out that it was Latini ilaoa. Detective wiseman was shook because Mabel johnson tragically died drowning in the lake of Quetico.

She started to figure it out but the one thing she couldn’t get her head around was how did Mabel come back to life? Detective wiseman got a team of divers to go search the lake. The divers couldn’t believe their eyes. They saw lots of people that had gone missing a few  years ago including francis. They tried swimming back to shore but all the dead people underwater grabbed the divers legs and brought them down with them.
They were desperate for air but suddenly couldn’t breathe anymore. Detective Wiseman finally solved the mystery of Mabel Johnson and francis brandywine. A couple months later the quetico lake was banned and the francis brandywine case was solved. So everyone lived happily ever after… Or did they?!
Task description:
this task was about writing a sequel to the original Francis brandywine. Room 1 literacy simply watched the video and with our creative minds we made a sequel to the original video.

Satire writing || School Is just the best!||

Warning what you are about to read is not true. Again it is not true! In writing we are doing satire So this is my attempt to it. Also read it in a sarcastic way to understand. 

School is just the Best!

Don’t you just love school? All the teachers giving out hard work and having to finish it by the end
of the week. I just love that! Also only having a short amount of time to eat, so I get home and I’m
starving. Mann I wish I could just live at school! I think that school is amazing and Not like a kid
prison at all! School for me is like another donald trump, because everyone loves him . I  Also
love Doing homework because it is my favourite thing to do when I’m not at school, not like I got
any other things to do.  Whenever I have trainings or family dinners I definitely finish My work after.
Home work is the best! There is nothing in the world that I would want to do except my homework.
The one thing that I hate the most about school is… Lunchtime! All the kids smiling, laughing, playing
and having fun. “ARGGHHH DISGUSTING!” I just wished we had no breaks in school.
Overall School is The best! 

Task description:

In writing class today I had to attempt to write a satire writing.
My topic was about school. In this piece of writing I am lying, and that is the whole part about satire.
I hope you enjoy my piece of writing overall.
