Earths natural resources

Waking up and I’ve just realised there’s no natural resources anywhere. What is a natural resource? A natural resource could be water, sun, oxygen, soil and food. Why is a natural resource important. Well it is  important because it keeps us alive.

Plants are important because they produce healthy food. The food that they can produce are vegetables and fruit. Also plants help us to breath. Water is important to us because it keeps us hydrated. Water can be found in rocks, lakes, soil and rivers. We depend on freshwater because we can’t drink saltwater.  

The sun helps plants to grow their vegetables and fruit. The sun is important to us because we orbit around the sun. When where closer to the sun it gets warmer and when where further away from it we get colder. It takes 1 year for us to orbit around the sun.

All the natural resources I have been talking about was plants, water and the sun. If we didn’t have these resources we wouldn’t be able to have food. We also wouldn’t be hydrated and we would be starving.

Paideia Seminar

Last Term we had our Paideia Seminar. We had to get into pairs and then talk about a perspective. Me, Amelia, Pisirina and Jahzara were in a group.

We chose the perspective of schools. This is what we had to think about. Schools - what will schools do? How will the day be different to what it is now? Or will it? What will be the advantages/disadvantages of not coming to school? Will we have to come to a building called school in the future? What would we miss out on or gain?

When we got in the tusitala it was all set up with our names in front of our desk. Then we started. My group started the polite argument off first.

Myself and Amelia said being at school is more easier than getting home schooled or learning online. If you are home schooled you won’t be able to communicate with other people face to face and you won’t be able to play with your friends. If you don’t go to school you will also miss out on the really cool things happening and playing sport.

Then after talking and arguing politely Mrs Lagitupu told us what we had to talk about. She said “ this is what you have to speak about stop telling us to switch off our devices we are a digital tribe now. As soon as she finished talking I said well I mean sometimes you can go on your devices but you also should go play outside with other people. Also people are stuck on new games and youtube because they get there new trends from the internet.

At the end of the seminar we had to say one thing that we’ve learnt. My one thing I had learnt was that I can speak more. The one thing I can work on is preparing for the Seminar.

Rainbows end

On the 15th of July me, my family and my friends went to rainbows end to celebrate my birthday. It wasn't my real birthday it was just my party. Any ways my friends that were with me were Pisirina, Jahzara and Marika.

When we got to rainbows end we were the first ones there so we quickly ran to the gates. My siblings came with my dad, and myself and my friends went with my mum. We were waiting at the gates and we saw Rai and Bow. Rai and Bow are the two Rainbows end people.

Finally we got inside Rainbows end and we ran to the Log flume. The Log flume is a water ride where you go in small logs. The logs take you to a magical land and at the end you go down this big waterfall.

After that ride we went on the Gold rush. The Gold rush is where you go in mini miner carts under ground. You will see fake people holding gold and digging for gold. When you come up from the under ground you see all the people who are on the Log flume.

We went on many more rides like the Pirate ship, Invader, Corkscrew coaster, Motion master, Fear fall, AA drivers town and Bumper boats. It was 4:50 and the rides were closing down because the theme park closes at 5:00 pm and opens at 10:00 we got there at 9:30. Myself, Jahzara and Marika went on the last ride that was opened the Invader.

We got off the Invader and ran to my parents. We dropped everybody home and I got home at 8:40 pm.
