Road patrol - Lesson 1 Part 1


On Wednesday at 9:00 o’clock we had a meeting in the library with a police officer called Constable Teina. She looked liked an ordinary police officer but she yelled a lot when we made a mistake! Also as she yelled a lot, she told us to just ignore when she was yelling and to forget about everything so we can concentrate. Everyone looked liked they passed the test that Constable Teina gave us. That was the end of our first lesson of road patrol.

Running, Jumping and last but not least Throwing!




On Wednesday we went to our final Run, Jump, Throw session. Lots of people were enjoying themselves playing lots of fun mini games that Coach Declan set up for the whole class. When we were playing a game called “Clean the Room”, the aim of the game is that you have nine beanbags or let’s call it “Toys” for now, so with those beanbags you have to throw those beanbags to another area which is called their “base” and you have to have the least beanbags than your rivals. After we played, Clean the Room we were playing, shot putt, but this was no ordinary shot putt. We had to throw the shot putt balls to the the cricket wicket, and the first one to score higher points than other people they win!

DISASTER MADNESS TAKES TWO CITIES AT ONCE

Earthquake and tsunami disasters happened in the South Island, New Zealand. On the 13th of November 2016, Wellington and Christchurch regions were badly affected. Roads, houses, buildings and more got destroyed plus, a power cut had happened in the areas. The local people had to move inland or into higher grounds for their own safety of the upcoming aftermath of a tsunami. It was reported that two people died from a collapsing of a house during the earthquake event. It was also reported that the earthquake was 7.8 magnitude which then triggered waves up to 8 feet higher than usual. From my research, the reasoning's for these destructive disasters to happen to our country is that, we are in the Collision Zone which means that these events were not the first occurring as our history of disasters have been ongoing. For a tip: When an earthquake happens you should always not go outside of the house or you might get badly injured. And lastly, fora tsunami occurring it's always best for you and your family to get into a higher place like a mountain or hill, any place away from the sea/ocean.



Manakalani film festival

On Wednesday we went to the Manakalani film festival at Syliva park in the Hoyts and we watched about…  10 to 15 movies. Our presenters were great and confident, what I liked about the film was about how many students and we saw kids that we have seen before!  

My favourite was when students drawing equipment out of chalk!
