Reading - News Item - Homework Week 9


Some year 6 students have parents who are happy to pay for extra tuition ( boost. ) Teachers say that it is affecting their teaching by having more advantaged kids that work faster than expected. Miss Clark a year 6 teacher said herself "That everyone can work through the curriculum at the normal rate and that no one gets special treatment for taking short cuts." The children who's parents did not pay for extra boost lessons felt disadvantaged by not having extra knowledge which caused a negative competition/rivalry between the two groups which also made it very difficult for Miss Clark and others trying to teach. However Miss Clark did not give extra attention to the children who had boost lessons therefore the novelty wear off after a while and they all realised that the boosters only lasted a few months so after awhile the class was all back to normal and focusing on the regular curriculum.

Sharing The Planet - U.O.I


Watch the video really inspiring!
Did you watch this video? I thought it was really inspiring and this is how I thought it was connected to our current Unit Of Inquiry: Sharing the Planet.
Reflection: I thought this was connected to sharing the planet because it was explaining how we a tricking our self into thinking that we are helping the planet but really we are polluting and ruining all of earths nature resources, we are destroying all animals habitats and soon enough animals are going to be extinct just because of us. It was also trying to explain to not just sit back and let others do something you need to get in there and help out. If you have any ideas you want to tell me or it inspired you to change in your  life please feel free to comment down below.

Earth Hour

Saving Power

On Saturday night at 8:30pm we were not home so we're saving power, we were actually up in Auckland at a family friend's house. I had lots of fun that night with my family, we socialised with friends and meet new people, we also caught up with people we hadn't seen for years. It was a really fun night with lots of different people and at the same we were saving power and helping out with earth hour. Its really not that hard to help out the earth every little thing you do can change a lot, so help out, think about what you could do to help, get involved.

Creative Writing - Week 6

Creative Writing - dragons 

Image result for dragons

Our starter for last weeks writing was: 'Dragons stalk the streets, puffing out smoke and clattering their mechanical wings'

My heart thumps. Shadows slither round my curtains as I see saliva dripping from the beasts ruffled chin. A cringing smile slapped on it’s face like it doesn’t belong. It’s tongue sliding it’s way towards me as I sprint further into the maze of walls, hurdling myself towards the bed.

Sitting, shaking, trembling with fear. The beast's face smashes against the clear glass as it comes tumbling closer and closer towards me. Darting across the room I finally manage to avoid the sparkling glass that now lies scattered chaotically around the room. He slowly wanders along to the next house as I see the sun slowly peering out from being locked behind the grey water logged clouds, leaving me stretched out on the soothing carpet astonished.

Science - Dissecting a Sheeps Heart

Dissecting a Sheep's Heart

This is us at school in science last Thursday. We all had the chance to dissect a sheep's heart, we had to cut through the heart into the different tubes and blood vessels. We got to choose if we wanted to wear gloves or not because the hearts were safe enough to not wear any gloves, I wore one glove on one hand and the other hand I held the scissors to cut through the heart but as we got further into the lesson I started using my hand with no glove on more and it didn't even fell that gross. It was a really fun lesson and I learnt a lot so hopefully we will get another chance of doing something similar.
