Surf Life Saving At Mairangi Bay

“Where’s Mairangi bay?” I asked Ocean “I dont know” she answered. On Friday the 19 th the year 7’s went on a trip to mairangi bay for our water safety .

“Whoo!” it’s cold. As I stood out of the bus trying to keep warm my arms had goose bumps all over it “far out its freezing” I said. Walking up the stairs still trying to keep warm we all went and sat in a room the room was sandy and still cold. The three ladies stood their and one by one introduced themselves by saying their name and which beach they are from.

“Ahhhh!” Sharon stop it” Sharon was dinging my legs up in the sand it felt wet and soft. “Raaa!’’ I yelled and smashed out of the sand then I was free. Then along came Ngaina and threw the sand at my neck and my neck felt so so rough.

“Whooo hooo!” the waves rushed over to me as i got ready to ride them i jumped on my board and rode for a good 10 seconds. The waves left me coughing . The day in the water was full of laughter, screams and coughs from the waves. That was my highlight of the day.

The remarkale "Millipede"

This is a Millipede. As you may know the Millipede has thousands of legs. The name “Millipede” is a Latin name. “Milli” means thousands and “pede” means legs. They have long smooth segments (a part of the body that can be separated or cut off). When disturbed they curl themselves up. Millipedes have two pairs of legs on each side. Unlike Centipede’s they only have 1 pair of legs on each side. Finally the Maori name for the Millipede is “Werimano’’.

The Simpson's


The Simpson's is a family of five. They also have a black cat and brown dog. My favorite family member on the Simpson's is Homer he is my favorite because he loves to eat and eating is also my favorite thing to do too. His most loved food is Dunkin Doughnuts. That is one of my most loved foods too. My favorite Dunkin Doughnut is the Cream Barbarian and those little Munchkins. Lisa is the intelligent one out of Bart and Homer. Marge is the mum she is just like Lisa in every way. Maggie is the youngest of the three she will some day turn out like her mum and her sister Lisa. Bart is just like his father.

Mt Taranaki DLO

This term we are learning about volcanoes. 

We looked at the legend of Mt taranaki and we had to create a DLO .  All the groups got to choose what they wanted to do.  Our group wanted to do green screening but we didn't know how to.  We made mountain puppets for our movie. 

My group members were April, Etta, Ocean and i.  We worked really well and completed our task.

Next time we need to plan what we are doing before we do it.

Take a look at our 'Legend of Mt Taranaki DLO'

Here is our assessment rubric for the Mt Taranaki DLO
