Fracking Reflection

What i would have done better next time: The slide show it was rushed and I think we could have practised our presentation a bit more.

What i did good: research i think we did the research on fracing good.

How my team worked: Good we all had different jobs, Sarah was the typist, I researched the topic and Lachlan created the presentation.

I think we worked well together,

The year six guide to succeed.


Room 15
Tawa Intermediate School
Tawa

Year sixes


26.11.12

Hello year 6's
I can't wait to see you next year.

Here's some wise wisdom for uniform. Wear P.E. shorts under your skirt in case it flies up and... it  can also look good if you don't  tuck shirt in or you're like a wannabe be. If your skirt is too long you can roll it or hem it. Boys don't tuck your shirt into your pants. Shoes, try not to get the big clumpy ones. New balance are okay but converse are the best. Don't tuck your PE top into your PE shorts if you don't have your jumper on top. 

Now for some tips for the first day. When you walk into the classroom, you are going to be nervous so don't worry about that. The first day you just want to sus people out. So be quiet, listen and you will find out who you want to be friends with. If you get  put in a desk group you don't like, don't worry about it. They will change once the teacher finds out who the noisy ones and split them up.

Thanks for listening to my advice I hope it helps you in Tawa intermediate.

your faithfully Giorgione.

Camp

The scariest thing i ever did on camp was caving but it was one of the most fun too.we had to go in a bus to the caving site once we were the we had to walk across muddy sludge fields to the entrance of the cave.We were spilt into two groups one would go caving first the other would go to the flying fox.but before we headed off to our activity's miss wanted to say something to us'' before you go caving its a good idea to put veggie mite on your face to keep the cave wetas away"she said. Me being scared of wetas made me jump up and put it on my face but i didn't know she was joking i felt really quite dumb but when i think a out it know its quiet funny.


The flying fox was awesome. you go down at the speed of light.i screamed the whole way its was super fun. you felt like you were flying.after that it was time to go caving we grabbed a helmet and a torch and headed in it was damp cold inside the cave and when you talked it echoed.we slipped through small gaps and ducked down i hit my head quiet alot at one point of the cave we had to climb up at ledge while holding a rope. once we were out. it was weird because everything was very light.

i had heaps of fun doing it and would love to do it again.

National standards

Imagine your little brother has made you a birthday card ,he has tried his hardest on it it's spelling bad and the picture on the front Is Messy ,
but you don't say oh that's not up to standard.He has tried hard to make it for you so why in schools does that happen.


National standards don't work for everyone .For kids that English is there second language are struggling in in national standers. even though they find it hard to understand english they get marked same as a student who has a been in education system all their life. It's not right they are trying their hardest but it's not enough .

If kids have tried hard all year, and the teacher can see that they still get marked down. everyone's not Perfect some times it takes a little while longer.

National standards to me is a bad way of judging kids learning.

Tuesay afternoon

For our collaborative art project in class we have do a doddle of something that means a lot to us I did a hand because it helps me learn. We talked about our doodle to each class mate. After that miss announced we were going to be doing a colaborative art project using our doodle! quickly we got into groups only to find miss swap us around becuse for this project we couldn't work with our friends I was annoyed at first but soon I figured it would be nice to meet other people in the class not just stay in my normal group of friends.

In our groups we started to plan our art work my group Nikki, Lele and me decided to splater red green black and yellow on a white piece of paper then in black paint do our doodles on top.Then we got our piece of paper and started on our splatering of the paint it got everywhere but luckly we had put news paper down to keep the floor safe. After we left it to dry ready for the next day to paint our doddle on top.

Bye,

more maori in schools

should we have more Maori taught in our schools ?

i think we should be teaching young people more Maori taught in schools. when i went to primary my teacher did her best to teach us it but i could tell she did understand it.teacher already have to deal with marking work keeping student quiet and the list go on with out starting on teaching  students a language you don't yourself that's why they should have people to help them.
 
 
also learning a language when your young is much easier than when you old.so its a great time to start learning.as i have moved to intermediate there has been different opportunity's to learn the Maori culture.

ki o rahi

Ki o rahi
We have been playing Ki a rahi in school it has been a great way to get fit and active during school.We have heaps of fun doing it and we learn basic skills like throwing, stepping, and losing gracefully. Sadly i my team did not win any games but i still  enjoyed it. we had instructors who help us help us learn the game.And taught us the rules and basic strategies we could us to score.

There are two teams one of them scores my passing the ball and touching all the posts then taps into the middle the other team. Scores by throwing the ball into the middle to try hit the post there are goal keepers to deflect  the ball from the other team.

It is an awesome game and wonderful experience.

my besties

i have heaps of besties but there in is particular 5 in my class called.Brittany or Britt , Nikita, Jade or Jadelings, Sarah  and Courtney or Court. they are really special to me if i don't understand something Brit is all ways there with her helpful dude seriously but Nikita has more warm helpfulness she always explains it to me so i understand it.Sarah is really sweet to.but sometimes a bit to much sweets or coffee result in hypnosis and lets just leave it at that.court can also get a bit over excited too unlike Sarah though she is crap at keeping secrets special ones about boys.my last bestie jade is  free spirit always smiling and is amazing at surviving high school  game on her ipod
and that about it.

media image of women

There is an underlining problem involving women and their image in the media. There is a stereotype for pretty women that are not reachable for most women and girls without surgery and diets. There have been nearly 9.5 million people choosing to have surgery in the U.S.A that’s way too much.
Women's image is changing within our society. Young women are being more self-concious of their bodies and are layering on make up to make them feel better about themselves. It's really cruel and shouldn't be happening. More women are going diets to be like the girls they see in magazines even though the models have all been air brushed. That’s what young women want to be like this unreachable goal to be perfect it is bringing us all down. We should be happy with ourselves and love all body types.


Magazine and TV are disrespecting heaps of girls' body in what they dress them in; miniskirts tight tops lingerie. It is all fuelling the race to be perfect. Girls see the girls in the magazine, they don’t think, "ew that’s horrible." They think those girls have publicity and money and be like them and it reflects in what they wear. The girls in the media aren’t role models for young women there the op in yet heaps young girls want to be like them


I wrote this because I know I am a young person and I do see this going on it's not good it needs to stop.

Lilly diary




dear diary
today we're going to the shops and buying some cool stuff after mum stayed out all night were owed some special time with us. apparently she has found her husband he only 19 i don't think he realise she has kids and 3 husbands i reckon she needs to think about her life before she jumps into  things.

well i wonder what I'm gonna by with my money i am  thinking about a bracelet or saving i know what pixie gonna buy the same thing every time bunny rabbit.and the twins will fight what over they got and both of them will get broken.i fell sorry for mum she always low on  money and you can tell she doesn't like living in the easte and this will only make it worst if things dont work out with this guy.


and about last night mum went for one drink but it turned into clubbing and that when she met dis when she met this  guy i know she really likes him but i think she is rushing into it and she hasn't told him about us yet.i am worried about her.and what this guy dumps because of us.
