2015 Reflection

This year I did my learning with Mrs Parker in a netbook classroom using Google Drive.

Having a netbook made it easier to do my writing, reading, and my homework.

This year I learned  about jupiter and what's on jupiter.   

I did research on planets and the solar system.

The thing I enjoyed learning about the most was planets  because I like planets. Jupiter is my favorite planet

I still want to learn more about the solar system because I want to know how the solar system works.  

The class trip I enjoyed most this year was to go to the performing art students from Unitec in the city.
I am proud of the way I learn in class and help others  

Next year I am going to learn about chemistry.

Rainbow End trip

                              Rainbow End
On Tuesday 1 of November some of Glenbrae School students went to Rainbow’s End. When we got there all the little kids went with Mrs Adcock and Ms Card and the bigger students went on there own.

Our first ride was the stratosfear but the minimum height you had to be was 150 cm and some of us were tall enough and some were not tall enough. So only some of us went on the stratosfear. When the  stratosfear was finished we went to buy some chips.

After eating all of the chips we went to bumper carts we had to wait in line for a while but finally it was our turn. When I got into the cart at first I did not know how to drive the cart but then I got it, there was a pedal that I did not see. The bumper carts were hard because  everybody came after me. Then we all finished we went to bumper boats

Bumper boats was hard to control but I got it and I got wet pants and shoes after the bumper boats we went to the pirate ship. The pirate ship was like a big swing. It went up and down and it was so much fun I even got butterflies in my tummy. When we were done we went to the invader.

The invader was scary and I was on it. I felt like I was going to fly out in my seat and I was screaming in fear at first but then I got used to it and I was so dizzy when it was over. After the invader we all went to the power surge

Power surge was even scarier because when you were on it you, your seat would get tipped over and it was so scary. I tried to not look but it was to hard not to when they tipped your seat over. After the power surge we went to the log flume.

The log flume was cool. We had to hop into a log that look like a boat and then you would flow with the water and they will take you under a cave and then you would go under another cave. The second cave had christmas decoration and it was wierd. After the log flume we went to the family carts.

Family carts looked cool, but when we got there I was not 150 cm so I had to be a passenger. When it was our turn, it was so fun and it was so cool. When it was over we went to Mrs Adcock and Ms Card and went back to school.

I felt so happy that I went to rainbow end and I want to again some day.    



Today Thursday 3 December 2015 Rm7 had some chocolate from Whittaker’s the chocolate flavour was hokey pokey. When I  got my chocolate and I felt it it felt hard and firm. Then I took took off the paper and I took a small bite it was crunchy and it was melting on my hands and it was so sweet and delicious. and when I put the chocolate in my mouth it was even better then when I took a small bite.

Next my class, room 7, ate another chocolate from Whittaker’s. and the flavour was berry biscuit when I felt the chocolate It felt cold and hard but not just hard it was harder then the hokey pokey. When I took a small bite it was crunchy and tangyish because of the berries inside of it. When I took a big bite it was crunchy then sour again. Then when I swallowed the chocolate the the berry got stuck in my teeth and it was yuck.

If I could make my own chocolate I would make white chocolate peanut slab, because I love white chocolate and I love chocolates with peanuts in.

OMEG tech

 On Saturday 2 some of my class mates went to OMEH tech at the city. We went in a bus. When we got to the city we went into the OMEG place went up stairs to wait then a lady came a told us that we could expolar  and wait for some name tags. when we got a name tags our journey began we got put into groups an and went to our stations my group went to the robotics.

The robotics was programming robots on the computer so they can move and we had to programme the robots to move the robots can move faster then a human robot help a lot of people because humans cannot go somewhere that the cant so they send robots to help.

After the robotics my group went to 3D printing, 3D printing was you make something on the computer and when you are done the prine it out and it comes real ad it is so cool I drew my name and said I am the man we had about only 40 mints each stations. when 40 mini was over and we went to our next station .

Our next station was braking a part compute CD players, in the CD player I found a mooter, laser, and a Manet after that station we had free lunch got the chicken and egg meal that was the best trip and it was so awesome and my favourite station was the robotic because programming it.

The problem with pluto

The Problem with Pluto by David Hill

SJ Level 3 Feb 2012

WALT: Use a cline graphic organiser to order words with similar meanings
WALT: create an acrostic phrase

There are lots of different words that describe the comparative (to compare) size of an object.
Use this cline scale to find the words which indicate size and fit them along the scale (click to edit the image)
People used this acrostic phrase to remember the order of the planets: My Very Excellent Mother Just Served Us Nine Pies. Now that Pluto is no longer an official planet create your own acrostic sentence to remember the order of the planets.

Original Phrase
Your Creation

3. Write a paragraph summary explaining if Pluto is a planet, and why/why

Pluto is a planet like ever other planet and pluto is well and alive   

Travel on a research craft heading to the uncharted limits of the Solar System. Learn how Pluto is different from the other planets and discover the challenges of working out just what a planet should be.
The Problem with Pluto takes a modern look at our once familiar Solar System. It presents a lively debate over Pluto’s planetary status, a debate that had been looming from the moment Pluto was discovered, over 70 years ago.
If you could vote on Pluto’s status, how would you make up your mind? What are the characteristics that all good planets should have? Lucy and her teenage friends, who live on various planets in the Solar System, think they should know the answer but find that it’s not so easy. Lucy’s mother, who is a scientist, is given the job to settle the argument once and for all.
The last decade has seen some major new discoveries within the Solar System and in response scientists have had to rethink their views. Science, history and sentiment all played a part in reorganising our Solar System. But, as Lucy comes to realise, it’s not really a question of what’s right or wrong, but, in looking for the answer, that we discover what’s important after all.

What cause seasons

                                  What cause seasons

Seasons happen every year it starts from Autumn, Winter, spring, and finally summer.

In Autumn trees leaves falls off but before the leaves fall they turn into red, green, or yellow.

We have seasons because the earth is tilting on its axis. When the earth spins the sun shines on the northern hemisphere, it is summer and on the south hemisphere it is winter. So when the earth orbits the sun, it stays the same tilt, but the southern hemisphere is now pointing towards the sun. When when the sun shines on the southern hemisphere it is summer and the northern hemisphere is winter.         


                                            STAR DOME

On Thursday Rm 7, 8, 9 and 10 from Glenbrae School went to Star Dome. When we got there we had our morning tea under the shadowy tree. After that Rm7 and Rm8 went inside while Rm10 and 9 got to play in the playground for an hour. When we got inside we went to the space room.

At the same time we went inside the space room there was a lady that was talking to us about the moon, sun and the earth. And I learned that  people use to think that the pluto was the same size as earth. After the space room we went looking around star dome and we saw meteors, planets and the moon. After exploring we went to the observatory room.

When we got inside the observatory classroom we sat on some seats and were looking up at a big screen. And there was the same lady that was with us in the space room. We watched a movie about the solar system, the tilt of the earth, even the sun. I learned that the earth is tipping on its axis. When we go around the sun we are spinning really slowly.    

After the movie was finished which was a great and funny movie. Finally we got to have a turn on the playground while room 10 and 9 went inside stardome to learn about the solar system, planets, sun, moon and the tilt of the earth. When your journey was all done we went inside the bus and went back to school tired.

I felt happy because I got to play in the playground and got to learn about the solar system, moon, sun and the earth.

Super hero poem

My superpower is telekinesis,  To move things with my mind
I am strong that i could lift the sun with my head

If I could, I would sit down and then use my powers to get my chips without getting out of my seat and fight for justice.

People would see me and say I am the man because I can use my superpowers and save my other people.

With my SUPER power, I am cool, fantastic, and perfect   

I'm as strong and healthy as can be.

When I use the SUPER powers within me.

No Escape! by David Hill
SJ P.3 N.3 1998

WALT: Use a graphic organiser to organise information.
WALT: Summarise key information.
   A black hole is caused by  a star that gets so old, cold it will blow and create a  black hole and destroy anything/sucks anything close to it. Black holes can even suck planets in two and if it will suck Earth  that will be bad.

Gooing to the pools

Go to the pools and your stay cool.

Last 2 weeks my family and I went Glen Innes pools. When we got to the pools I got into my swimsuit and then did a big splash into the pool. Then I swam to the button of the pool and I held my breath for 30 seconds when I got back up all my hair was covering my face.

Next I started to do a monkey climb on the walls of the pool I went on around then me and my brother did a breathing competition my brother held his breath for 20 seconds and I holded my breather for 30 seconds then we did the competition again and it was a draw.

Later on I saw honey at the pools she said hi to me and I said hi back. Then I had to go home because dad had to do some work at home
so we got change into our dry clothes and went home.

It was fun at the pools and I wanted to go and that was the time with me and my family at the pools and I wish I could go everyday.

Playing with friend

Today, I was playing out side with my brother's bike. When we were playing, a friend from across the road came over. Then we put our bikes away and we started to play cops and bad people. My younger brothers were first as the bad people and me and my friend were the cops. We had to lock them in the gate and they had to escape from the gate. When they escaped, we had to run after them and for them to be saved, they had to run 5 laps around the gate. While we were playing my brother climbed up the tree it was hard to get him.

We tried getting him with sticks and balls but we  could not get him. Then I climbed up the tree and tried to get him but I could not get him. I tried again and I got him. At last the cops won and the bad guys lost. Then we started to play hide and ghost seek. I was the finder first. When they were hiding I found my friend first then my brother then my other brother.

After a while we started to eat. I ate an apple and some chips. After we ate we went back outside and played on the scooter. We went riding down and up the hills till we got so tired. when we got tired our mum called us in because we had to stop playing and go for a shower.

Room 7 Daily Fitness

Today was a cold windy day. Mrs Parker said we were going to go out to practice for our cross country on the field. I did not want to go because it was so cold and I felt like an old man being lazy. Mrs Packer said "Let's go out now." We did some stretches for our warm up. We had to run two laps around the field. When I was running I felt so sore and when the wind was blowing on my face it slowed me down a little bit. When we finished doing two laps I was so so so sore. We had to do some stretches again and then we went back to class.

We should eat insects as part of a healthy diet

WALT: Create an argument with a point of view (P.O.V) and reasons for or against.
SC: Use evidence for or against the topic to create an argument for:

Use these videos to help you

TOPIC: People should include insects in their healthy diet.


We should eat insects as part of a healthy diet. I agree to eat insects because bugs are full of fibre easy to harvest and takes less to produce.

Insects have less fat than cows and chicken and you don't get as much fibre protein or zinc from cows and chicken as you do from insects which are edible and digestible.   

We should eat bugs because, you can eat 80% of it, but if you kill and eat cows chicken and other animals you will get about 40% or 50% of the animal as meat and the rest gets wasted.

Bugs are easy to harvest and it is free so you can save money because you can find bugs anywhere in your garden, grass and even maybe in your house. You can find flies centipede spiders and even cockroaches.

Bugs take less water than cows to produce. Cows take up to 22000L and pork takes up 35000L and chicken takes up to 23000 L but insects take only 1L and we need water and in many of the parts in the world people eat insects already.

Bugs are healthy for your healthy diet they are easy to harvest and and takes up less water than cows, chicken, pigs, and other animals but bugs take less water and and bugs have fibre protein vitamins iron zinc.

Brushing our teeth

Its important to brush your teeth everyday because. To brush your teeth properly you have to do small circles but no up and down and you have to brush your teeth for 2 minutes and your have good teeth.
