When I played it was very fun. After that we packed up and went to class.

A new home

Fred and Michelle are 2 astronauts and they are looking for a new planet to live on. The day this happens is a very good day, 28th of November 2007. Something good is going to happen today but meanwhile bad things are happening like the war and that is not good.  They had to leave earth because there was a war.

They are getting ready to leave Earth because they have failed to stop the war on planet Earth. Fred and Michelle are going to find another planet to live on and right now they are about to take off on their rocket. They are in space and they are looking for planets.

Suddenly Fred saw a planet that looked like a nice place to live so then he put his space suit on and went out of the rocket and test the planet and it was perfect so then they called the space station and said that they found a planet and some people from earth came to live there to and it all was OK.

Last Day 7 - Activity 7

Three things I could do to make New Zealand beautiful.

1.    I would go and pick up rubbish in any place I would see rubbish.  
2.    I would put up signs that said on them Please keep New Zealand BEAUTIFUL.
3.    I would also plant some seeds in a place where there were no plants at all.

Here is a photo of me doing something that I find really relaxing... watching Netflix!

Day 6 - Activity

brand new
wet coarse sand
our journey was long
but now we have arrived
here in this chilly unfamiliar land
we step out of the homely waka
Land of the long white cloud
waiting for us. We're here!
So much hopeful expectation
into unchartered territory
Our home

Day 5 - Activity 5

On our trip to the South Island we went for a walk in the middle of a rain forest in Lewis Pass. Lewis Pass is a beautiful place.  As we were walking I stopped to look at a tree with colourful leaves and flowers on it. Then I took a photo with a camera.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            I turned around and the group was gone. I started to panic and I became really scared. I thought about running but then I decided to stay. I decided to stay because if I ran I could be even more lost and the group would not find me in the same spot where the tree would be.                                                                                                                                                                                                                           Suddenly I heard a familiar giggle and then heard the group shout surprise. The group were hiding. I was so happy to see them. I said I knew you wouldn't leave me behind. We all left laughing together.

Day 4 - Activity 4

Earlier this year a whole lot of whales got stranded on Farewell Spit which is at the top of the South Island.  300 of them died but not without a lot of help trying to keep them alive by the local people.

The people tried to help the whales by keeping them wet with as much buckets,bottles,pots and bowls of water and anything that they could find that could hold more water to tip on the whales.   They also covered them with wet cloths, towels and lava lava's.  All of the whales were treated equally, with respect.

The 8 whales in the story that I read had all floated back out to sea the next morning.  What a relief!

Day 3 - Activity 3

The kiwi is New Zealand's national and endangered bird. But you can not just find a kiwi anywhere they live in rain-forest and they only come out at night.

The native bird I have chosen is the Little Spotted Kiwi.  The most common place they are found is on Kapiti Island.   It is the smallest of all the Kiwi family and normally weighs between 1.2 to 2kg.  Little Spotted Kiwis eat things like worms, cicadas, bugs, small fruit and leaves.

There were not any of these kiwis left on the north or south Island, but now they put some on some of the smaller islands around Auckland and Wellington.  They live in forests and cannot fly.  They are nocturnal, which means they come out at night and sleep during the day.

 I think they are really cute!

Day 2- Activity 2

Auckland is home to 1.500000 people. In Auckland there are more boats per capita (per person) than      any other city in the world. Wow!

My five most favourite tourist things to do are;
1.  Sky tower
2.  Kelly Tarltons Aquarium
3.  Catching the ferry to Devonport
4.  Mission bay
5.  The zoo

The sky tower stands as the highest building in Auckland at 328 meters and has been standing in that position for 20 years. Also the sky has a restaurant, souvenirs, movies about the sky tower and bungee jumping. My family and I went to the Sky Tower restaurant for my brother's 18th birthday - it was very flash!

Day 1 - Activity 1

Today I had to find three interesting facts about people of New Zealand.

The first fact is that 5% of the population of New Zealand are human, and the rest are animals!  That is a lot of animals.

The second fact is that there are more people living in Auckland than in the whole of the South Island!  No wonder there are so many cars.

The third fact is that New Zealander's have won more Olympic medals per capita (which means for each person in the population when you compare it to other countries) than any other country; which means that we are pretty good at sports as a nation.

Animation voice over

hi my name is jedida. In the beginning Maori people made waka’s and paddle’s out of carved wood. Then sailboat’s were made and they used wind power instead of paddle’s.Technology has changed over time because people have invented better ideas and people have made motors .

At first people could only walk .About 9,000 years before Jesus was born (BC),people used animals to travel around.Three thousand years later on people invented waka’s and sail boat’s.The first wheel was made in about 3,500 years  before jesus was born.Around 350 years ago people invented carriages so people can ride around more faster. 150-200 years ago people invented boats and ships so people can travel .About the same time trains were invented to travel more faster.Early cars were very uncomfortable to sit in.The most important invention was an airplane because it has lots of engines.Rockets were sent into space in the 1950s and the 1960s.

What has happened to Miss West today

What has happened to Miss West today

Today I realised that Miss West was not at school. So I told Zaeeda and she had just realised it to. But I hadn’t seen anyone else figuring it out so I asked Zaeeda if she could help me find Miss West and she said yes I will help you find Miss West so let's start ‘said Zaeeda’ yay ‘said Jedida’ are you excited that Miss West is lost ‘ said Zaeeda’ no ‘said Jedida’ I’ve just never been on adventure before.   

So Why don't we look around school ‘said Zaeeda’ sure ‘said Jedida’.Let’s go look around school,so we started to split up and I look around school but still no sign of Miss West, then we sat down and thought. Maybe she was joking about her call when she called in sick.

Maybe she did not finish all of her work in the weekend and she wanted to have a break from school or she was kidnapped by aliens or maybe is on a vacation but my finale guess was that she was a spy and she made a joke call to school that she was sick but actually she was just at home collecting all of the information that she had. But I also wanted to add to the spy idea maybe her boss wanted to rule Pt England so her boss sent her to Pt England. So that's what I think happened to miss west.

Smart shoe

I think that the material is rubber because most products  are made out of rubber and it look like that kind of product that has rubber on it. I also think that the top bit might be made of metal because it kind of looks like metal but in a different colour.  
I think that it helps you swim. Because when you dive in the water it might give you a big boost or it could clean everywhere you step or it could warm up your feet in winter and cold up your feet in summer. And I also that this is solving a because of people that do not like other boring shoe and some do not even fit.

It has feet warming,it tells you what day it is,it checks your categories,it has automatic tightening and also it shocks absorption measurement and it was made in 2015.

I think that it is a good idea because then people won’t complain about getting new shoes and waiting for shoes new cool ones to come out but I would not buy this product because it will waste my money because then I would have to buy a smartphone with it and I would have to save up for a long time. If the next edition came out and I was the maker I would make it connect to different company. if you would like to find out what I wrote about click here. website

Narrative Writing

One day a person named Sam was just walking along doing his job walking his dog and he found a sign that said Knocking down the trees on pt England reserve to build houses yay!! Sam was so sad because he loves the Environment so he ran home to print out some other signs that said help save the environment for pt England reserve. So the next day Sam went to look if the council had knocked the trees down yet but instead he saw his signs being ripped. Then he ran home again and tried to think of another Idea then hours went past and Sam fell asleep. In the next 5 hours Sam woke up and he had a dream that he found out what to do and when he woke up he really did have an idea. And his idea was to find as many people as he could so then they could all stick together to help Sam to save the environment. And it worked everyone stuck together and they got their wish the reserve trees were saved.

Staying At A Farm

One really cool thing we did in the holidays was staying at a Farm. At the Farm we rode on horses and I was excited and my horses name was Dodge.  Even though milking the cows was heaps of fun I was terrified that one of them would poo or pee on us.  My mum and dad got poo on their jackets and my sister got poo on her shoes too!  Yuck!
We went kayaking on a lake which was so much fun!  I even ended up going by myself and it was easy!  At night we drove down the farm road to see glow worms.  I thought the glow worms were going to be bigger, but i liked seeing them light up everywhere - like LED lights!
Probably my favourite thing at the farm was hanging out with my family and seeing my cousins from Australia.  Aroha and I squeezed grapefruit to make juice for everyone. We had to wait for the cows to leave the orchard because the cows liked the grapefruit too!  Semaia (my big brother) picked off grapefruit for us because he has really long arms.
I really hope we go back to visit the farm again - maybe with different cousins next time.

New Years Eve

On the 31st of December 2016, me, my dad and my sisters went to Auckland Hospital. We went to watch the fireworks for New Years eve. We went there because it was a great view of the sky tower and we were going to pick up our mum too because she works there. After we picked up my mum, we waited for a while until the numbers started counting down on the skytower till midnight.  Everyone around us was counting down too and we all shouted when it was 2017.
On our way to have dinner before heading home, we looked up and there was a line of fire going down Mount Wellington! We stopped to have a look and saw three fire engines all trying to put out the fire.
