Science Movie

For the past few weeks we have been doing science in groups. After we did all the experiments we had to make a movie in our groups. We used scientific language throughout the movie and we reenacted the experiment with our own props. (We used baking soda for our own effects).

Bible Studies

For 1-2 weeks, I have started working on two verses I was given ( from my dad). These Two verses were from Proverbs & Psalm.  These two verses mean the same thing but in another way.

NZ flag vote

Today, LS2's were split up once again into our thinking groups. This month, New Zealanders were voting for a change. The current flag(shown on top) is going up against the challenger for the official NZ flag. My thinking group thought about the reason why & not to change the flag. During the final stages, all thinking groups voted for what they think is the best flag for New Zealand. Since choices always have a reason. So with that in mind, LS2 voted but also told why they want to/not change the flag.

Exemplar Writing:

The boys sat together thinking about the poor man. They were sorry that things had happened the way they had, and they still felt a little bit guilty - they hadn't meant for anything bad to happen. Jack signed. He had learnt that it wasn't always a good idea to go with the crowd and he wouldn't be making the same mistake again.

...Three weeks earlier, Jack had been walking to the shop with a group of his friends. As they passed the old railway bridge, they spotted what looked like a bundle of clothes next to a rusty old dustbin. Jack stared at the rags intently, until, to his surprise he saw a pair of eyes blinking back at him. He hurried on, to catch up with his friends.


"Hurry up Jack!" One of Jack's friend screamed. Jack didn't care, he had been staring at the old rusty dustbin.His friends stopped."What do we have here?" They wondered. Joe(Jack's only real friend) motioned his hand to the back of his dark tracks pants."Joe, don't do it!" Jack shouted as he sprinted towards Joe. "Smash!" The poor old man's blood drowns the bright yellow t-shirt."Oh no, what did you?" Jack yelled. Jack stared at the pool of blood. He was in shock as his friends belted off. Joe & Jack froze. "What do we do?" Joe question urgently.
"I don't know!" Jack screamed with adrenaline rushing through his veins.

This Exemplar writing is mean't to show the pace & mood of the story going forward.It also is to help me practice keeping the flow if you have a strong orientation.
