Who’s your favourite book character and why?
Percy Jackson
Percy Jackson is the  Son of Poseidon. He is exciting and he goes on lots of adventures with his friends, Annabeth, daughter of athena and Grover the Satyr.
My favourite book is Percy Jackson and the sea of monsters because it is interesting and exciting and Percy meets his brother Tyson.
His movies are all so interesting because there are a lot of monsters and lots of action in them.

Hectors Dolphin,
The Hector's Dolphin is a native mammal that lives off the west coast of the South Island. Hector’s dolphins are among the world’s smallest dolphins known to man. They are found  in the waters of Aotearoa/New Zealand. Hector’s dolphins are known to live to a maximum of around 20 years before death.Like other dolphins, Hector’s use echolocation to find their food. They make high frequency ‘clicks’ that bounce off surrounding sea beds and fish, giving the dolphins a picture of their surroundings. This technique isn't always used the time, which may be one of the reasons why the dolphins get caught in nets.

Are they Herbivores Omnivores or Carnivores?
Dolphins are carnivores mammals that hunt in pods and eat fish.
They eat all fish and no herbs or plants.

Have they been hunted?
No the Hector's dolphin has not been hunted.Traditionally, Maori watched dolphin movements
to predict the weather to see if it is ok to fish. The Maori did not hunt the Hector’s dolphin

How many Hector's Dolphin’s are there,
In the 1970s their population sat at around 29,000. Now there is  fewer than 8,000 dolphins are left. The even rarer subspecies of Hector's dolphin, the Maui's dolphin, is under even greater threat. Their population is now estimated to be less than 80 of them, with an adult population of just 55 dolphins remain.

How long can the Hector's Dolphin grow too?
While common dolphins reach about 2.6 metres in length the Hector's dolphins grow to a surprising 1.2 - 1.6 metres, and weigh about 35 to 50 kilograms. They are so small you could fit them into a bathtub!

What do they eat?
Hector's dolphins feed mostly in small groups/pods and are picky  feeders. They eat both under and above the surface water. They eat a variety of fish including squid, red cod, flatfish and yellow-eyed mullet. When feeding an average dive is 90 seconds but have been known to dive for 2 minutes.

Conclusion…
Our conclusion is that the Hector's dolphin is endangered
and might possibly become extinct. We are glad they live in New Zealand and are free.
Hopefully the population raises and there will be much more than there already are.

music for rap
My rap
I come to school thinking I was cool
But all the bullies make me think I’m a  fool

I walk into class every single day
Then all the bullies make me pay

All the bullies say what a  shame

Then they call me weird a nickname

Sometimes I try fake an ache
then I find out is a big mistake

So I don't have to go to school
Cause all the bullies think they rule

Every day I fear they will scare

Me to cry then I feel like I’ll die

Please Mr bully let me be

Why can’t we all just agree



ART!

This is my art















Our art was inspired by Raewyn Harris.

The goal was to create artist inspired artwork.

First we had to a think about the colours and see what worked well together and pick out the colours that we liked.

Next we had to do a draft in pencil and think of what designs we wanted.

Then we had to do another draft in chalk, we had to do it in chalk to practise for our final copy.

We used chalk to soak up the dye on our final copy.

Finally we had to do our final copy in chalk and colour it in and dye it.

Next time I will try to make different colour combinations .

Maths - Measurement

WALT find perimeters and areas of simple shapes

Perimeter is the distance around the outside of the shape. You find the perimeter by adding all of the lengths together.

Area is inside the shape. You find the area by multiplying the length and width of the shape. 

Example: I have a rectangle that is 6cm by 4cm. P = 6 + 6 + 4 + 4 = 20cm A = 6 x 4 = 24cm squared

Creatures of the Deep

WALT: Write a ‘moment in time’ piece of writing.

Creatures of the Deep

 I was at the aquarium and then the ground started to shake and the fish were swimming very fast. I saw a gigantic octopus! It was as big as 100 elephants, with tentacles the size of two giraffe necks. I could see its big black eyes looking straight at me.  

 The octopus was smashing through the buildings. I could hear people screaming and the police sirens moving up and down the streets as they chased the octopus.  

My stomach started to feel like it was moving in circles. I felt worried that the octopus would destroy the city and the people. The buildings were crumbling to the ground and going up in flames. I could feel the warmth of the flames on my face.   
 I smell the smoke rising and swirling around me. There are more police cars now. The fire engines are everywhere. I smell the horrific seawater of the octopus.
 
 I taste seawater in the air. Suddenly, the gigantic octopus came out of nowhere and threw me into the sea. Now I could definitely taste the seawater. The octopus was closing in so i swam as fast as I could,  and scrambled on to the beach

I could hear loud helicopters. Suddenly, the monster was flying, then I realised it was trapped in a net that the helicopters were carrying.

Term 1 Writing

WALT write about a experience using quick write.

In term 1 the Year Six hub went to Waipara camp on two buses. When we got there it was very wet. When we got our stuff and went to the main hall we split into two groups and played some games. Then we went and did some games and did some team building challenges. We did lots of activities. My favourite activity was orienteering because we worked really and were the first team back.
