“ YIPPEEEE’’  I said. It was Friday 21st of september at 9.10am  Room 7 students got into buddies and Miss Ashley arranged the furniture and told us to get into buddies.

PARAGRAPH #1
Me and Ana got into buddies  and Miss Ashley gave us instructions and rules - points. She told us “ In your head make a plan of where to go like left or right and make sure that you do not stand on the paper and touch the tables only touch the chairs and climb over it” carefully.

PARAGRAPH #2
The first person to be blindfold was Ana. Ana said that she felt so scared that someone might bump into her and scare her. When we in buddies Miss Ashley said that “ The back person has to blindfold the person in the front that is your buddy she ask me if we could swap so I can be blindfold and she will do the talking. Miss heard us and said “ NO ’’ you are not aloud to swap. Then we went buddy by buddy.

PARAGRAPH #3

Then we got up and then started walking then I told Ana to go left then right and then straight. Out class had a goal to try and and touch the purple cardboard then Miss took a photo of me and Ana touch the cardboard. And when we try to go over the chair we had to Grab lean and climb over and step over.

CONCLUSION
I  would or wouldn't do this again because it is so hard because you have to try not touch the papers and stuff and I felt very nervous that I had to do it well some people are watching me. Ana got mixed up with our left and our right because when it was my turn Ana says left and right and I go that way but she tells me to follow her voice but it was too hard to follow.

Editing a Story?

Here is our edited story.
Things we learnt about were
We aren’t allowed to use then, and, also and because at the beginning of a sentence.
Speech marks go on the OUTSIDE of the full stop or other punctuation.
The end of a sentence can be marked by a full stop, an exclamation mark or a question mark. You don’t need to put an extra full stop after a question mark.
Remember to check ALL capital letters. Sometimes we need to put them in and sometimes we need to take them out.
On Monday 24th September 2018 Room 7 did a blindfold challenge. We wanted to have fun and make our morning a bit interesting by playing a game. 

Firstly Miss Ashley told us the rules which was “no touching the tables or pieces of paper on the floor or you will lose points.“  However you are allowed to touch the chairs because you sometimes have to step over them to get to the end. Next we got into buddies. My buddy was Lucina.  We had to line up by the heater in our buddies. 

First it was my turn to go so Lucina (my buddy)  put the blindfold on me (over my eyes) and helped me to stand up. The blindfold was tight it felt like a constrictor boa on my face. I felt so confused and disorientated because the blindfold was covering my eyes. Lucina told me to “go left, right, straight and step over.” I was feeling nervous and a little bit scared because “what if she was tricking me?“ and I was really doing something silly. I got to the end safely and took my blindfold off.

Next it was my buddies turn so I helped her put the blindfold on. I told her to walk straight first, then next turn left. She doesn’t know her lefts and rights so she went the wrong way.I said “no your other left” and it was a little bit funny. In the end we got to the blue fruit tray and we made it without losing any points!

I think I would like to do this activity again because it was cool to do something different and fun in class especially since it’s the end of the term and I think we are all feeling kind of tired.

TONGAN LANGUAGE WEEK



“ CHEEHOO!!!!’’ wednesday 5th of september 2018 tamaki primary school had a tongan language week game day. Mrs Tafea and the TPS leaders were helping Mrs Tafea with the games and Room 7 were putting out the games well room 9 and 10 set the games up. Every class got to pick whatever tongan sport they like to play.

The first game I played was Lanita with Ana,Mrs Tafea and maani and all along a lot of people came and played. When we first started I forgot how to play but I remembered how to play because I played Lanita in tonga with my family and my nena. So then the first person to start was Ana when Ana SMACKED!!! The Navy blue ball she did not know what to do so Mrs Tafea told her that she has to run. Then it was Maani’s turn she hit the ball then she SPRENTED!!! Very fast and the look of her face was very serious. When she was running she CRASHED!!!! To the floor and Slipped but then her hands and her stomach touch the cone so then Mrs Tafea said that she made it to the 1st cone. Then it was my turn before we have to swop over When I hit the ball it went to my left side so I sprinted as fast as I can and then BOOM!!! I made it to the 2nd cone But then bad news Jordan’s slippery hands touched me and then I was out then we swapped over but then Mrs Tafea rang the bell. And that was the only game I played .
THANK YOU FOR LISTENING TO MY TONGAN LANGUAGE WEEK STORY THAT WE PLAYED OUTSIDE.

Direct and indirect impact of droughts

Learning about different kinds of floods

Tsunami Work

How you know when the Tsunami. Is coming it’s when you see. The Water going backwards. And then coming forward. And when it is coming forward it has a lot of power. To bust down houses. And Energy but if you are very far away you got heaps of time to run or you could just run up the mountain or drive a car up the mountain. And sometimes when you are very far the water will go lower and lower like just say that if you are in christchurch and they had a tsunami and if it was coming to Ackland sometime the water goes High then it goes low and when the water goes low that means that the water is losing its energy. The people are planning for the future so they have everything and they will be safe from the tsunami that could hit them but if there house are stronger and also stronger than the tsunami. People don't have time to get ready because ,they are close to the sea which makes the tsunami much closer to them and they have no time to plan for safely they are to close they have to make time to find a big hill to go on because if you find a tall hill that is taller than the tsunami it would hit you but you will have no time if you have near the water which the tsunami comes. The other people are lucky because as the wave goes it lose it power and strongness and it just a little one and does nothing.

Space Work

The percentage of oxygen in space is lower than the percentage in Earth. Why is there no oxygen in space? Because there is no trees and the oxygen separated to different areas in space like near the sol.

1. Where does Earth get its oxygen from? Earth’s oxygen comes
from tiny ocean plants called phytoplankton that live near the water’s surface and dirt with the currents

2. What things on Earth need oxygen to survive? Scientist have found the first animals capable of surviving in an entirely oxygen- free environment.
 
3. What would happen to those things if oxygen disappeared for 5 seconds? Everyone at the beach would get sunburn, The day- time sky would get darker, Everyone's inner ear would explode, Every building made of of concrete would turn into dust and The oceans would evaporate and bleed into space
 
4. How long can humans survive without oxygen? Six minutes
Why is there no oxygen in space? There is oxygen in space, but the oxygen is spread out that nearly you cannot make use it as a source of oxygen for your body. The earth has gravity that pulls together oxygen near each other
 
Oxygen does so much more than that in fact i'm willing to bet the product are worst then you're expecting. There is 20 percent of oxygen that we breathe. It is mostly in space.

Title
Fire in the house
Introduction
One sunny beautiful Saturday Craig was playing Fornite with his friend Jack. They had been playing all day long.
Orientation
Craig was a 8 year old boy with blonde, curly hair and chocolate brown eyes. He was wearing his favourite turquoise Fornite shirt and seafoam pants. Jack was 9 and had jet black hair and bright blue eyes. The two boys were playing Fornite in the lounge at Craig’s house. The lounge looked like a pigs sty, with stinky socks, pizza boxes and mountain dew cans everywhere.
Problem
Craig was sooo engrossed in his game. He leapt out of the bus, pressed X and landed on one of the houses. Craigs thumbs and fingers were starting to ache from playing for sooo long without a break. Jack thought a glass of water might wake him up, so he went to get his friend a cool glass of icy water. He was just strolling back into the messy lounge, when he heard Craig scream “OHHH YEAH HEADSHOT!”. It gave Jack such a fright that he dropped the glass of water, and “Oh no!” he screamed, it tipped straight onto the electrical plug. Craig sniffs “sniff sniff”, “I can smell smoke, is the oven on?”. Jack yells “THERE’S A FIRE, HELP!”. Craig finally looks up from his game to see that the PS4 caught on fire! Craig thought to himself “Dang it, I was about to win!”. The two boys rushed outside leaving all their valuables behind.
Solution
Jack ran to the neighbours house and asked to borrow Lucy’s phone. “HELP HELP OUR HOUSE IS ON FIRE!”. Craig could hear the sirens of the fire engines getting closer and closer. Jack and Craig tried to comfort each other, but they were panicking so much and couldn’t hear each other over the sirens and blaring smoke alarms. The firetrucks arrived and extinguish the flames in 1 long hour.
Conclusion
The two boys felt depressed. Their game was over, and they didn’t win. And now… their house was destroyed.
