Leilani - Guardians Of The Galaxy! Space Narrative Writing!

Guardians of the galaxy!

Space narrative writing!

Walt: create a narrative piece of writing 

Introduction -  

Auckland  is now polluted and we are running  out of oxygen so we need to move to somewhere safe and somewhere that has oxygen. It was very strange that we were running out of oxygen because it was a nice sunny day. Other countries are not running out of oxygen and they are not polluted why? Since I was still at home me and my family were packing our bags and my Dad said let’s go and find a spaceship so that we can find somewhere safe. Later on that day once  we had  finish packing our bags qw then we took my Uncle’s truck to go to another planet because my uncles truck is big and it can hold many people. When we were driving to another planet I saw my friend Lillyana and her family with their bag filled to the top. So we drove to the side of the road so they could jump in with us so that they are not walking to the spaceship’s. While my dad is driving us to the  another planet me and lillyana were talking about how to evacuate people to the spaceships so they can go to another planet. My Dad also said that the people in Auckland can take the spaceships and we can take our car (the spaceship’s are controlled by my Dad so that the people inside are safe). When we were nearly going to take off we heard a massive speaker saying everyone go to the spaceship’s and pack your things in your bag’s. Since we heard that we waited for everyone to get to the spaceships so the robots inside of the spaceship’s can set them and so that we can control the spaceships’. About four hours later everyone was seated and my family was the only people in the v.i.p place because they need to best care. Then we took off into space!!! When we got up there it was super cool and dark. I wish that there was a bit more light so my Dad turned on the car light’s.Also when we took off into space earth looked super weird and it had lots of nude patches all of it.

Paragraph 1 -

When we were up in space we couldn't find a good planet to stay on so my went back down to earth.The spaceship’s were doing fine and my dad said that my family was having a little party to celebrate from not dying from how there was not oxygen.The spaceship’s were one of the biggest spaceships in the world and Bill English design it.It is red and it has a blue outline all around it.Every time that we went down my tummy felt weird and I could see beautiful stars everywhere I wish that I could grab one but I know that it was far away from me . Ok so we were nearly back at earth and I was super happy but I wonder if it is still polluted?

Paragraph 2 -

Ohhh no a big rock was coming right towards us and I was super scared we told my dad to hurry up the car so we could go faster back to earth.But the rock was much more faster than us so we tried to push the car with our hands but when we do that we were going to die and run out of air so we just put our head’s back in the car as well as our hands.The rock was still coming towards us so we quickly prayed so that we don’t die and then the rock was getting closer and closer and everytime it got close it was getting hotter and brighter.Oh my gosh it was so close that I hugged my family and told them that I love them so much.Then once it came we moved to the side like nothing happened and we were so shocked so we went back now to earth.

Paragraph 3 -

Once we got to back to earth it was not polluted and we had plenty of oxygen so we unpacked our bags and I dropped Lillyana and her family back to their home.When I got home we also unpacked our bags and we were saying that was very close we nearly died but we are still alive from moving to the side of the massive rock.I am super happy that we survived because if we didn’t I would be dead by now and I would just be so sad.Once we had finish unpacking our bags we went to the movies to celebrate us surviving!

Conclusion -

Feww that was super close I hope that doesn't happen again and I hope that we stay safe and sound.I hope you like my narrative it took me a while and BYE BYE.

Task description - Today me and room 8 have wrote a narrative about us taking off into space.Also the rest of team 4 did it as well.I have done three paragraph and a conclusion.My fingers now hurt from writing all of this and it took me a long time to do it.I this story I have wrote lots of things.I have re - wrote the introduction because I didn't like how my dad was the main character so I add him.I am also coming out with an animation that is based off this story.It should be posted on my blog before term 4.Also I am coming out with a planner that is for my animation so make sure you stay tune for those post I am sure that it is going to be super cool.So I hope that you enjoy my writing and I hope you leave a positive comment if you like and BYE BYE!!

Leilani - Winter Learning Journey! Day 7 Keep New Zealand Beautiful!

Day # 7 Keep New Zealand Beautiful!

Yay it is the last day of our winter learning journey it has been very fun and I have learnt so much things!So yeah let's get started!

Activity 1: While in Taupo, you go for a walk around the lake and you notice pieces of rubbish floating in the water. You also notice that there is rubbish on the footpath. As you know, it is really important to put rubbish in the bin and keep New Zealand clean and beautiful for generations to come.
With that in mind, it is time think about what you can do to keep New Zealand beautiful. Use your imagination and come up with three things that you could do to make your neighbourhood more beautiful. Post your list on your blog ☺

First way we could keep New Zealand clean - Put it in the bin! 
Ok so I came up with a way it is so simple and easy.First you get you rubbish and then put it in the bin it is as simple as that.I is way simpler than pouring you self and glass of water!
Second way we could keep New Zealand clean - Use reuseabile bags and bottle!
This second way is that you can use reuseabile bag's and bottle's instead of using plastics and other types of materials that are not acceptabili you can you material bag and bottles.I got this one because the plastics and other materials are not acceptabilit.
Third way we can keep New Zealand clean - Get up or find a bin
In New Zealand or sometimes in other country's people are just to lazy to go and find and get up to go the bin.If you lazy just get up and still put it in the bin.If you can't find a bin go and look properly because there is a bin some where.
Activity 2: After you have finished up in Taupo, it is time to hop back in the car and head for Rotorua – a town where will have the chance for some much needed rest and relaxation. In fact, you will visit the Tarawera Bush Pool – a geothermal hot pool that is located in the middle of a forest. The warm water in the pool comes from underneath the ground. After a few hours in the pool you feel really relaxed.
On your blog, post a picture of yourself doing something relaxing. I find reading really relaxing. Here is a picture of me reading one of my favourite books!

Bonus Activity: On your blog, post a video or write a description about your week. What have you learned? What did you like about the trip? What didn’t you like? Was there anything that surprised you?
To earn full points for this activity, you must talk about what you learned, what you liked and what you about your great kiwi road trip.
This winter learning journey has been an amazing adventuer!It has been super cool working with yous.I have learnt so much about New Zealand.My favourite day was all of the days I thought that it was super fun.Thanks so much for letting me join the winter learning journey and for making my brain grow.I hope that you are doing this next holidays so I can join again.Thanks so much I have enjoyed and have fun and BYE BYe!

Leilani - Winter Learning Journey! Day 6 Native Aotearo!

Day # 6 Native Aotearoa!

Yay today we are going to be doing day 6 which means we have one more activity to go I can't wait to go onto day seven it sounds cool.Ok so today we are going to be doing day 6 which is all about native aotearoa I hope that me and you learn new things on this so let's get started!

Activity 1: Let’s imagine that you were on the first waka to arrive at Shag Point. You had never been to New Zealand before and you had no idea what to expect. Write a poem describing how you would have felt when you arrived in New Zealand. Would you have been excited or scared? I would have felt pretty nervous, I reckon…

New Zealand is a pretty cool place.
The mother nature is just amazing.
As well as the beautiful land.
New Zealand is going to be one of the top ten populist places in the world.
And it is going to be a wonderful journey!
We are going to name so much places.
As well as so much people.
I hope that you enjoyed I had no idea where I was going to yeah enjoy!
Activity 2: After visiting Shag Point, you hop back in the van and drive all the way up the east coast of the south island until you reach the town of Picton. You get out of the van and onto the Interislander ferry. It travels back across the Cook Strait to Wellington. Wellington is the capital city of New Zealand and every winter the city hosts a huge Matariki festival to celebrate the Maori New Year. This year part of the festival is being held at Te Papa, a big museum in Wellington.
Read about the Matariki festival at Te Papa.  There are so many different things to see and do at the festival this year. On your blog, tell us about three of the events. You can choose any three events that you wish.
What I have choose in 1 - I have picked start weave jam because the name so super cool and I think you have to weave some things and I can learn how to do that!
What I have choose in 2 - Storytelling for kids.I have choose this one because I like listing to story as well as telling story.I also think that it would be really relaxing!
What I have choose in 3 - Matariki fireworks.I have choose this one because I love fireworks and I can see them and get super happy.Some times I get scared if it comes to close to me.
What I wish 1 - I wish that there could be a challenge about Matariki and then the person that guess lot's get a free k.f. basket

What I wish 2 - I wish that there could be a light trail full of Matariki light's and it will go for a long time.Because that should brighten up the kids faces and make them happy.

What I wish 3 - I wish that everything could be smooth and that it will go as they pained!

Bonus Activity: As part of the Matariki festival, there is a two day Kapa Haka competition. The haka is a traditional war dance that Maori performed before going into battle. The haka is now performed by children/adults in the community and by professional sporting teams, including our national rugby team, the ‘All Blacks.’  The All Blacks have performed various haka over the years. Watch the following three haka videos (1 – 3) and, on your blog, list the haka videos in order from best (#1) to worst (#3). There are no right or wrong answers ☺
The coolest haka! # 1 -  # 2. Because they looked confidant and they look very tough.
The coolest haka # 2 - # 3. Because I like how they were all lined up and they looked very tough.
The coolest haka # 3 - # 2.Because it was bad quailty and it didn't look nice.

At the end of your day at Te Papa, you head to your hotel in the centre of Wellington. You are staying on Cuba Street, one of the coolest streets in the city.

Bonus Activity: 8 points

Leilani - Winter Learning Journey! Day 5 One Step At A Time...

Day # 5 One Step At A Time....

Activity 1: After a few hours in the car, you, your group and Curious Kiwi arrive at your first stop – The Lewis Pass Scenic Reserve. It is a beautiful, regional park located at the base of the Southern Alps. You and your group get out of the van and follow Curious Kiwi. He is going to lead you on a short walk through the park. As you start walking, you notice a really cool looking tree on the side of the trail and you stop to take a closer look. When you turn back, the group (and Curious Kiwi) is nowhere to be found. Eek! You are all alone in the middle of a strange forest.
For this activity write a short story (8-10 sentences) about what might happen next. Please be sure to include lots of details about what you might be feeling, seeing and doing after you realise that you are all alone in the forest...

Activity 2: After the adventure at The Lewis Pass Scenic Reserve, you are pretty happy to get back into the shuttle van and continue with your road trip. Over the next few hours you travel up and over the Southern Alps, arriving in the city of Christchurch to eat lunch. You have a delicious meal at a café downtown and then hop back into the van to travel to Twizel, a small town at the base of Aoraki-Mt Cook. Mt Cook is the largest mountain in New Zealand. It is also the mountain where Sir Edmund Hillary trained for his climb up Mt Everest the tallest mountain in the world. Sir Edmund Hillary is very famous because he was the first person to ever reach the top of Mt Everest!

Now it is your turn to learn about a famous New Zealander. Use Google to research one famous person from New Zealand and then create a DLO and post it on your blog. Be sure to include: 1. The name of the famous person, 2. Where they were born, 3. Why they are famous, and 4. Two other interesting facts about them.

Leilani - Winter Learning Journey!Day # 4 Swimming With Sharks!

Day # 4 Swimming With Sharks!

By the end of Day #3, you have seen a lot of the north island of New Zealand.  Hopefully you have enjoyed it and you’re excited for the next phase of your journey – the ferry trip across the Cook Strait from the bottom of the north island to the top of the south island. You will spend the next two days exploring the south island before you head back up to Auckland, via Wellington (the capital city of New Zealand).
Activity 1: When you arrive in the south island, Curious Kiwi rents a shuttle van and drives your group from Picton (the town where the ferry dropped you off) to a beautiful beach on the opposite side of the island. The beach area is called Golden Bay and, at one end of the bay, is a stunning area called Farewell Spit
Farewell Spit has been in the news recently as a number of whales accidentally swam into the spit and became stuck on the beach. They were unable to swim back to the ocean because the water was too shallow. Many local people tried to save the ‘beached’ whales. Please follow this Farewell Spit link to learn more about what happened. On your blog, describe what the local people did to try and save the beached whales.
Reason # 1 - They would grab bucket's,water bottles with water in it then they pour it onto the animals.
Reason # 2 - They make sure that they give the whales each equal treatment.
Reason # 3 - Camper offer them towels,water and what ever they need for the whales.
Activity 2: After a morning of learning about beached whales in Golden Bay, you and your group are driven to a nearby town, Nelson, to watch a special movie calledWhale rider.’ It is a famous movie about a young girl who was born and raised in New Zealand. Watch the following movie trailers for Whale Rider: Whale Rider trailer #1 and Whale Rider Trailer #2 and then write a summary of the movie on your blog. What is it about? Be sure to also give the movie a rating out of 5 based on the trailer [1 = bad movie, 2 = okay movie, 3 = pretty good, 4 = good movie, 5 = excellent movie].

C:\Users\rwil313\Desktop\Whale Rider movie poster.jpg
When ‘Whale Rider’ finishes, you and your tour group enjoy a delicious meal in downtown Nelson before heading back to your hotel. You need to go to bed early because you have to get up at 4:30 a.m. the next morning to travel back to Farewell Spit to see a group (pod) of Hector’s Dolphins. It is going to be an early morning!
This movie is all about a Maori girl that really wants to become the chief of the trieb . She really wanted to learn how to learn with sticks but it was only for boys.The papa got all of the boys into a little boy school made by him.They had to learn how to work with sticks.She secretly watches her koro teach the boys so that she can learn how to do what they are doing.If you want more information make sure you watch the full movie:)
Bonus Activity: Hector’s dolphins are a very special native animal found only in New Zealand. They are the smallest dolphin in the world measuring 1.5 metres long and they are quite rare. Sadly, many Hector’s dolphins are killed every year when they get caught in large fishing nets and can’t escape. Some people have argued that fishermen shouldn’t be allowed to fish in Farewell Spit in order to protect the dolphins living there. What do you think? On your blog, tell us whether you think that fishing in Farewell Spit should be banned (stopped).
C:\Users\rwil313\Desktop\Hectors dolphin trapped.jpg
Bonus Activity: 10 points
I think that killing the Hector dolphin is really wrong.Because killing animals is very mean and not right.Everyone should leave the animals alone and just fish some where else.

Leilani - Winter Learning Journey! Day # 3 Wild Eye!

Day # 3 Wild eyes!

Activity 1: Curious Kiwi, a native New Zealand bird, is your tour guide for today. He is going to take you to visit the Otorohanga Kiwi House and Native Bird Park where many of his aunties and uncles currently live. The bird park is a five hour drive from Dargaville so you hit the road right after breakfast and arrive in Otorohanga at lunch time. As you walk through the birdhouse you learn about the work being done to conserve and protect the native birds of New Zealand. You decide to help out by ‘adopting’ a native animal. Visit the Adopt a Critter page’ on the Otorohanga bird house website to choose one animal to adopt. On your blog, tell us the name of the animal that you chose and a little bit about them. What kind of animal are they? What do they eat? Where do they normally live? You can use Google to help you with your research.
What I have picked to adopted - Kereru

What kind of animal is it - Bird

What a Kereru eat's - Rats , stoats , cats and there eggs

Where does Kereru's live - They are only found in New Zealand , you can spot them a forest , parks , reserve and gardens.

Colour - Green , purple , bronze and the breast is white.

kingdom - Animalia

Family - Columbiformes

It is 51 cm

It is 650 g

Activity 2: After your great visit to the Otorohanga bird house it is time to hop back onto the bus and head towards the Hawke’s Bay – your resting place for the evening. Hawke’s Bay is a beautiful region of New Zealand. It is known for its wineries and gorgeous scenery. When you arrive in Napier, the largest city in the region, you go for a walk through Waitangi Regional Park and notice that many of the leaves on the native trees have been damaged. Curious Kiwi tells you that they were damaged by possums, non-native predators, from Australia. People in New Zealand are working hard to trap and kill these predators. Their goal is to remove all of the possums (and other predators) by 2050. Go to the Predator Free 2050 website’ to read more about their work.
On your blog, tell us whether you agree that New Zealand should be predator free. In your opinion, is it right to kill all of the predators (eg. possums) or should we just leave them alone? On your blog tell us what you think and give us, at least, three reasons why you think this way.
Once you have finished your blog post, it is time to relax for the evening. You and your friends have a nice dinner and then head to bed. You are just about to fall asleep when you hear something moving around outside your hotel. It sounds like a large bird. Maybe it’s a Moa…
To learn more about the Moa bird go to the bonus activity for today!
I think that New Zealand should be predator free because all of the predators is killing all of our animals and nature.
Reason 1 - We should just leave the possum's
Reason 2 - The possums are trying to find food and a place to sleep
Reason 3 - Many people are killing possums because how they are runing around it their way just wait for it to go past.

Bonus Activity: A really cool new website called Wild Eyes has recently been launched in New Zealand. It is a programme for students who want to complete fun activities (called ‘missions’), take pictures and post them on the Wild Eyes site. For this bonus activity, go to the Wild Eyes site and complete the ‘Giant Moa Discovery’ mission. To earn full points you must post a picture of your Moa on the Wild Eyes website and on your personal blog site. The Wild Eyes team and I can’t wait to see what you create!

I can't d the bonus one because my perant's didn't give me permission to do it.
