Bonus Activity: In Flanders Fields - Week 2

This weeks day 1 bonus activity was  In Flanders Fields . I had to read A poem and say If I like it or not and say how it made me feel.


This poem is really good! It has rythms in it and some of the words sound the same . This made me feel sad because it is talking about the war and how the soldiers died for there countries.
Here is the poem:
In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
    That mark our place; and in the sky
    The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
    Loved and were loved, and now we lie,
        In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
    The torch; be yours to hold it high.
    If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
        In Flanders fields.

Activity 2: The Right to Vote - Week Two: A Period of Change (1870-1950)

I think that the fact about how women were not allowed to vote in Saudi Arabia until 2015 is not fair. I think this because women should of had the right to vote there should of been no reasons why they weren't allowed to vote.


This week I had to 'tell us what you think about the fact that women were not allowed to vote in Saudi Arabia until 2015. Is it fair? Why or why not?". This is week 2 fro the summer learning journey activity 2 day 1.

Activity 1: St Joseph’s Cathedral - Week 2 - Day 1

This is the 1st activity for week 2. I had to 'Use your search engine to find a picture of another famous cathedral. Post a picture of the cathedral on your blog. Underneath the picture tell us: the name of the cathedral, where the cathedral is located, when it was built, and how long it took to build. "

Twas the night before christmas



Twas the night before christmas, when all through the house,
Sleeping and dreaming just like a mouse;
All was well until my sister fell
She dreamt of her wishes from a well


Mum sleeping like a calm tree
Dad sleeping with my sisters and me
Dreaming of large presents making us scream!
My cousins dreaming of my beautiful Nana with cold ice cream
With some chips and reduced cream.


I heard a big bang making me stir
I looked at a star,
Shockingly to see
Santa claus flying like a bee
On his surf board
Like there were a reward.
His board looking like a christmas party
With lots of candy,
He and his 4 adult cows.
Landing on my neighbours house
Seeing a big sack of great treats to see


I wonder if he gave me my dream
A big pack of squishies and slime super extreme
Do you think the slime made is sack be as sticky as toffee
Maybe it was not that easy?



Santa was wearing some goggles and flip flops with a swimming suit
Oh silly santa did he want some fruits?
His cows were wearing some paint that said ‘Merry Christmas to all’’
I was looking like a confused starfish so small.


After santa stopped at my neighbors
He landed in my front yard with lots of favours
He saw me peeking out the window
So he jumped in and put presents under the tree next to my pillow
He left without a goodbye but with a small sight and said this in delight…
HAPPY CHRISTMAS TO ALL, AND TO ALL A GOOD-NIGHT!


LI: To rewrite the story Twas the night before christmas. Today we did writing. We had to rewrite the story twas the night before christmas in our own words. I learnt that some
authors write their stories with rythm. I learnt this by reading twas the night before
christmas and rewriting it.

Badminton

LI: To learn a new skill. Today for badminton group A learnt how to do trick. This trick was easy for me and a few people but for some other people it was quite hard for them. So I learnt this trick by putting the shuttle on the racket in the center then trying to balance the shuttle when we move the racket around an try to make the shuttle not come of. In the beginning we had to pick 2 games called Stuck in the mud, and Octopus. Victoria won the game octopus because she was the last one who didn't get tagged. After we played the games we learnt that trick then we did 1 on 1 on each court. After we did 1 on 1 we did 2 vs 2, so 2 vs 2 is when you find a partner on your court then you verse someone else on the court with their partner.  Today was our last session of Badminton. An awesome instructor Kevin taught us all those skills and the fun tricks. So at the end of badminton we all said thank you to Kevin for being our instructor fro Kiwi Sport then we all gave him applause.

Narrative - What 3 things would you do if a Baby could turn people in visible?

What 3 things would you do if a Baby could turn people in visible?
  • I would see if that baby would make me invisible so I can go to places but no one can see me.
  • I will ask the parents how did the baby learnt how to turn people Invisible

  •  I will tell any family member who knows that the baby could turn people invisible when they found out.


One sunny day I thought to myself  3 things I would do if a baby could turn people invisible.

So if I saw that baby I will try make that baby make me invisible so I can go to places without people knowing for example the pools, I would go to the pools because it was a very sunny day and the pools with cool me down but I will also get sunburnt or tan. If I do get sunburnt or tan I will go to a type of pools that is inside so I can’t get sunburnt and people can’t see me walk in but they see me swimming.

I will ask the parents how did the baby learn how to turn people Invisible because I was curious about how a baby could turn people invisible. I thought that it was impossible but it would be actually possible. I would also tell the parents how did the baby turn people invisible; Does turning people invisible run through the family?

I will tell any family member who knows that the baby could turn people invisible and  when they found out. I will tell them so I could see if it is normal to them or if it was a big shock and they tell me the answer. This could also help me figure out when they found out that the baby could turn people invisible. I think they found out when the baby first started turning people invisible and they saw that baby turn someone invisible.



LI: To write four paragraphs about what 3 things would you do if a Baby could turn people in visible?
Today for writing Me, Lukah, Mojtaba, Joseph, and Te Pounamu had to write a narrative about what 3 things would you do if a Baby could turn people in visible. We had to write four paragraphs. We had got the "what 3 things would you do if a Baby could turn people in visible?" from a booklet called Creative writing. So this is how you use it, there is a bunch of ideas in it and you just flip it to one of the ideas and then do the other 2. In that booklet has 3 themes that have a lot of ideas in it that you could write about.


Badminton

LI: To learn a new skill. Today at badminton we learnt how to do a new skill. Our new skill was called the Backhand Lift. I learnt this by pairing up with Sandra and learning how to do the Backhand Serve. So when we first start Badminton we first played a game which is our warm up called Stuck in the mud. After our warm up we were doing backhand lifts with our partner but our partner throws it to us 5 times then we hit it back then we swap. After that we did 1 v 1 so we verse each other so other people. After that we did 2 v 2 which our partner vs another parson pair. This took us all the way to the end of the session.
