Net Book Positives Negatives

This year we got the privilege of owning a net book.It is cool having a net book.But there are some negatives.

One positive is typing because we don't need to write.Plus,we don't need to use a rubber to erase mistakes,instead we can press back space.

Another positive is the Internet.If we need to research or search for things we can type it up on google or some other browser.

I think one negative is not improving your handwriting.Using your net book to much can wreck your hand writing.

Another negative is misusing your net book.Some children go on things that they shouldn't go on.

If we had to go back to writing on paper.I think it would be slower but it probably would be better.

BILLBOARD

Last week we had to research a party that was running in the elections.I chose National.We did this for our extension assignment.

After that we had the task of coming up with our own pretend party. We also had to come up with a saying.

My saying is better day, better life, better future. I chose this because I think that it is true. If you have a better day each day you'll have a better life and if you have a better life. I'm sure you'll have a better future!

I hope you like my Billboard.

Stardome

On Thursday we went to the Star dome at One Tree Hill.It was for our last trip.As soon as we got to One Tree Hill we had our morning tee.Then we walked about 2 kilometres to the top of the mountain.“I'm exhausted I wish we didn't have to walk all the way to the top” I said.

Finally reaching the top I thought it was worth the exhaustion.I got to see a amazing view of Auckland.

We had to walk back down to the bottom of the mountain.But on the way down we got to play in the crater for a while.I played with the big volcanic rocks.

After that we went and had lunch.Then we went and played on the park.But I didn’t play on anything because I was eating.

About five minutes later we went into the Star dome.First we went and watched a movie about all the planets like how close they are from the sun.Then we went and watched a short clip in the space room.

After that we went and looked around.I saw a big telescope.There also was a mirror that made you look bigger.Later we went outside and waited for the bus.

Later we went outside and waited for the bus.At the end of the day I was exhausted and happy.I thought that it was really fun watching the movie at the Star dome and playing with the rocks in the crater.

Immersion Assembly

For our first day back at school,we had an immersion assembly.We do this every term on the first day so we can be informed about what our topic is. All the teachers are put into groups and perform an act for us.

Excitedly staring around the hall, I saw all the teachers dressed in weird costumes.They had things like wigs, masks, tutus and pompoms. I’m sure, like me, you are confused about what the term topic is,but keep reading and see if you can guess.


My favourite act was team 5’s. It was really cool because they showed some of the scenes from the movie, Star Wars. But amazingly it wasn't the normal actors faces, it was the teachers faces instead.

The other act that I liked was team 2’s.They did a rap called Space Rap.Dressed all in black with boxes on their heads, the teachers in team 2 were dancing like robots. “They don't look like robots” I thought to myself.

I really enjoyed the immersion assembly this term because it was funny and we learnt some new things about gravity.We were also told a story about Maui and how he caught the north island of New Zealand with a hook made of a jaw bone. Did you guess what our theme is? Our theme for this term is all about space, “Outta this world!”

Saving Valentina

While out in the sea of Cortez.Whale researcher, Michael Fishbach, and his family encountered a rare opportunity.The chance to save the life of a young humpback whale on the brink of death.

Approaching the whale there were no signs of life. After several minutes of floating alongside it, the whale forcefully exhaled.

The humpback whale was struggling to breath and swim. Michael saw that it was tangled in a gill net.

Grabbing the net...his family went and tried to cut one of the pectoral fins free.Eventually they did. About half an hour later they got the second pectoral fin free as well.

Once they cut the whale free it swam away and put on a magnificent show. They could tell it was very happy! The humpback did about 40 breaches, it also did tail slaps.

I think that the whale was really lucky that Michael and his family were there.It would have died if they didn't help.

Liver


The Liver is the biggest organ in your body.It has over 500 jobs and is part of the Digestive system.One of its jobs is to warm the blood.It is a very important job since we are warm blooded.
It is on the right hand side of your body,near your stomach.It is approximately the size of a little melon.

Your Liver breaks down food,drugs,chemicals and Poison's.It stores vitamins,minerals and food.The Liver also stores fat.

If there is to much fat in the food the liver wont break it down so you will put on weight.You shouldn't eat to much fatty foods.

I think the Liver is really important.Without it our bodies wouldn't work properly.
