Today is New Zealand International Shake Out day. Shake Out day is a day where we get to learn about earthquakes and what to do when a earthquake happens. This will help us to be prepared if a earthquake happens. Joshua V and I worked collaboratively to finish off this task. We both learnt a lot about how earthquakes start and what to do when a earthquake happens. We used our smart searching skills to also find out about the big earthquake that happened in Christchurch and Napier.

Why do People Build Bridges?

In writing my groups task was write a explanation on why people build bridges. I have used some information from Inquiry as our topic is bridges. If we wanted bonus points we would add a sentence with a colon or semi colon and added a sentence with a sense verb. I had only put in a semi colon. I found it hard to add a sense verb into one of my sentences. I learnt how to use a semi colon and a sense verb. But I also learnt some interesting facts like the first car was built in 1885.

Vector Wero Park

Today was exciting and fun because 29 students from my class including me was so lucky that we got to go to Vector Wero Park. Vector Wero Park is a water park that has river and water courses for rafting. When we first got there we all went into a theater where we watched a video about the legend of Maui then we watched a safety video this made me more confident to get started. After this we got changed into our togs then we all put on our wet suits, jackets, life jackets, helmets and water boots. We each checked our gear with the instructors then we got our paddles. We were ask to get into groups of five, four our six. In my group was Mele, Nyjah, Joel, Viva and our instructor (Joe).

Kiwi Can

This morning my group went to Kiwi Can. Our theme was resilience and the topic was perseverance. Perseverance is never giving up and always trying your best even if what ever your doing is your weakness. For example when I was playing cricket I knew I was bad at hitting the ball with the bat but I still tried my best. In Kiwi Can we also talked about what we do when we get frustrated and what we could do to keep ourselves calm.

problems by using strategy's.
