Jayden's Camp Writing

`“The bus is here, the bus is here!” everyone shouted. Grabbing our bags ready for our our trip to our new year 8 camp. I Jumping on the bus excited because I had never been to this place before . With a 3 hour drive ahead of us, I tried to get some sleep de dof my head cracked against the window so I just looked out the window as we went by. I was feeling like some lollies so I got my packet of wine gums and ate some with my friends until we got to camp.

When we got to a beach and I thought we were finally there but Miss squires said Its time for a big walk. When I heard we had to go on a big walk I was gonna cry because I didn't feel like going for a walk. But I still went they said that we had to team up with a buddy so I teamed up with my friend khi khi. It was a long walk and there were a lot of slipping a falling, we finally finished the walk and we got to swim but I just digged big holes with my friend. We went back onto the bus a headed to camp.

Finally we got to camp and it look pretty cool so we dump our bag on the deck. We then had a little tour around the place, We saw some cool things to do like play volleyball, play basketball, go on the big flying fox and even slide down a really long waterside. When we had a look at the activities we could go on the activities that had cards on it there were green ones, orange ones and red ones. The green ones meant that we could go play on it anytime we want, the orange one meant that we need supervision if we wanted to go on it, and the red one meant that we weren't aloud to go on it.

After all that we were allowed free time until dinner time so I went and played some volleyball. It was dinner time and I was wondering what we were having to eat. It was the first night and we had chicken, roast potatoes, mixed veggies and more It smelt yum. After desert it started to get dark so we all went outside a played a game of spotlight, finally we got to have some fun.

Spot light was fun and we even got to play sardines, But it was It was the end of the day and I was tied because we had a long day of having fun. We were all tied and went to sleep.

Football Writing

Football is the most popular game in the world It has about 3.3 to 3.5 billion fans in the worlds.
It has recently had soccer world cup in Brazil and the champions were Germany.
If you want to learn how to kick the ball and score goals then soccer is the sport for you.

This term we were lucky to have soccer in our school our tutor was called Sophia.
We were taught lots of skills, We were taught how to dribbling, passing, heading and many more. After we learnt all the skill I thought we had finished playing soccer for term.

Lucky Sophia made a soccer world cup tournament there was lot of teams, my team was Netherlands. The group members in my team were me, Nathan, Hannah and Jennifer.
Unfortunately we came last I think we drawed most of our games and only lost 2 .

It the end of our lesson I enjoyed it and hope we can do it again but I'm going collage.

I have learnt lots of skills and now I think I have gone better at soccer.

Jayden's colour explantion

Colours are important if we didn't have colours every thing would look boring.
There are many different colours you can even make lots of colour using red, blue and yellow
You can get a colour wheel and make all the different colours, Maybe I can show you the different colours.

relax his students and

The Primary colours are the most important colours of all colours.
The 3 Primary colours are blue, red and yellow without those colours there would be no colours.
With those 3 colours you could make all the colours like secondary colours and tertiary colours.

The secondary colours are created from the primary colour the primary colours a mixed to make green, orange and purple. To create green you need to mix yellow and blue = green.
If you want to create orange you will need to add red and yellow = orange. The last colour secondary colour is purple you just need to add blue and red= purple.

After the secondary colours you got the Tertiary colours there are lots of Tertiary colours.
The tertiary colours are just called red-violet, red-orange, yellow-orange, yellow-green, blue-green, blue-violet, and they are the tertiary colours.

Im now finish and you can now know how to make all the different colours by just using yellow, red and blue. If you know how to make all the colours you can maybe teach someone else

Plant and fruit

Today we were lucky to have some scientist come to our school.
They came here to show some experiments, there were 3 people there names were lura Lara and Jacob. we had it in the street so we could just go next door.

After that they ask everyone if they knew what acid is and base, I didn't know what it was and no else did. They got out some cabbage juice it was purple they also pulled out vinegar and mrs muscle. When they mixed the cabbage juice and the vinegar together the cabbage juice won and it stayed the same colour. They did this to see what one has the most acid and base. The one with the most acid will take over and change colour but the cabbage juice stay the same colour.

Next they pull out dry ice and said that if you touch it with your hands it would probably burn it
thats why they used gloves. The man Jacob grab a handful of ice and put it in jug full of water it produced lots of gas. Next they put some bubbles into the water they ask us what's your hypothesis They put the dry ice into the water and it was like a volcano it was coming out for ages.

The last experiment was about solids It was cool they got some pva then put some water in it so it was watery. Next they show us a old cleaning product I forgot the name. After that they got the cleaning product and tip some of it into the pva. Next they they put some food colouring in it they put the colour green. When they put there hands in it, some gange  stuff came out It look cool and they even gave us some. It felt weird but It was still cool.

Future Aspiration

Today we had so future aspiration people come to our school.
There were 4 people Andrew, Mrs shama, Arizona, Alfred they were here to inspire us so we make good choices in the future. Andrew was a radio person, Mrs Shama was a maths teacher at tamaki college, Arizona was at university to be a journalist and alfred was a police officer.

My favourite aspiration was Arizona she talk about her dream and what her life was like.
She said tahi the mahi that was do the work. The second one was a quote for Doctor Seuss it says “Today youer are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is youer than you”
The third one was san, It was have some fun. The fourth one was bang down the door and the last one was five strive to stay alive.

I think that thought to me to work harder in learning and get my grades up.

I need to be more confident, have more fun and strive to strive to stay alive.

This term we get to learn how to play AFL, on the first day we learnt the drop punt but I already knew how to do it because we did it last year. If you want to do a drop punt you have to know the 3 rules. There are laces away from faces, point your toes in the direction you want the ball to go and hold the ball with your hands on the top. If you know those 3 rules you can be able to do a drop punt.

The tutor said we have to find a buddy and find a space to kick the ball to each other.

It was easy and fun but sometimes my buddy will kick the ball in a different direction so I would have to run and get the ball. After that we got to play a game, we had to drop punt the ball over the river, If it touched the ground then you get a point if someone catches it they don't get a point, sadly our team lost, but I still enjoyed it.

A man from the Science Road Show came out and told us the rules before we went in
When we got inside we had to sit on down and watch the first show.

First they had lots of things to say and there were 2 gross thing that they talk about.They were talking about, poo and wee. They were teaching us what happens when when you eat something it goes to to your stomach and to your intestines, that's when the man pulled out intestines and said that's how long it is. He told us how it goes thru a small intestine and crushed the food and then the really big one and then it turns to poo or wee.

After that they told us that we can have a look around and look at some stuff.It was like an expo and I went and got my name done on  peace or plastic.There were lots of other stuff as well. It was time for the last show and we went and sat down. Unfortunately there was another school there so we had to sit on the left side.

They started the show and said that there were going to be some explosions.
First they came out with a plastic wall for safety and then a balloon and a little paper attached to it. second They told us to block our ears and then they lit the paper up “bang” it went. Then they said that we haven’t seen anything yet so they got a bigger balloon “bang” even louder I also felt the air push me back. Sadly that was the end and we had to go back to school.

What we did learning in the science lab

Today we got learn in the science lab about sound, We had to match the sound waves until they were the same.The bigger the waves the lower the pitch and the thinner the wave the higher the pitch.
We had to pluck the string so you could see if the waves were big or small.

We also went on other science labs with lots of instruments like the drums, a pipe and a guitar.
I liked using the pipe. you had to listen to one of the pipe pitch sounds and try and find it on one of the pipes. When you looked at the pipes the longer ones had a low pitch and the shorter ones had a higher pitch .

What we did at Badminton

Today 8th of may 2014 at 9:00 we had a lesson of how to play badminton.
I was sitting in class thinking it would be boring with my friends.
Because last time we had badminton it was boring because we had to hit the shuffles in a bin.

We walk in to the hall and our tutor was a man his name was Robbie I thought maybe it would be a bit better. To warm up we had a game of stuck in the mud, but instead of going under there legs we had to double high five them, I was pretty fun so It go even more better.
We had 3 rounds of stuck in the mud until we got to learn how to play badminton.

It was time and we lined up single file and got a racket then we had to do it again and get a shuttle. After that Robbie Told us about backhand and the forehand.
Next we had a go at doing for hand and it was easy we had 5 minutes till we changed.
We next did backhand but it was a bit harder, My high score was 20.
After that we had to do both forehand a backhand I thought it was easier than the other ones.

After we had practice that we had to get into a pair practice with 1 shuffle and hit it to each other.
It was fun because me a my partner were going for a long time, we had five minutes of that then we had a challenge. I thought maybe we would win, but when we played we lost faster than we thought. We had another go maybe this time we would win, but we still lost and my friend Jabez a Taniela won.

Empathy collage

How  I made my empathy collage

This term we got to make a collage about empathy, we all got a big piece of paper.
Firstly we made a document and put pictures in it for our empathy poster we had to put as much pictures as we can. Next we had to make a border around it I made a skinny one, using black pastel. After that I got one of my pictures and glued it on there.

The picture was a man hugging a alien and saying I know how you feel bro because they are both different. My next picture was some shoes saying under it put yourself in their shoes so they know how they people feel. I next drawn empathy look like some computer keys to make it look cool.

I also drawn a eye with green in it. in the middle of my collage to make my collage centred.
Next I drawed 2 hands clinging on to each and writing on top if help.After that I write words I write feel under the alien picture and connect next the shoes. When all of that was done I coloured the rest of the page gold so there was no white patches left, then I drawed green around all of my pictures so it can look cool.

How to play Minecraft

Minecraft is a famous survival and building game. You can building anything you want just by using square block on creative mode. If you want you can go on survival and get blocks yourself like cutting down a tree. You can also go on servers so you can play with people all over the world and your friends, but sometimes it gets very laggy and you have to quit out of the game.

First step is you have to create a world you can chose out of survival or creative if you want your house to be cool chose creative. I like to make my house out of wood there are more than a 50 blocks to chose from. Sometime I make cool mansion you can use crafting tables and Furnaces to make your kitchen look cool If you're a starter at Minecraft you can just make a big block. If you want you can put a bed inside so night time goes by.

Most of the time you will see zombies and skeletons but they won't hurt you only if your on survival. When you play servers you will be in survival mode there will be a big building where you will start and when you go out into the worldliness you have to watch for mc players just in case they come and attack.
