Butterfly life cycle

Stage 1 and 2
Do you ever wonder how butterfliesare made?
As  the sesame seed size egg lays on the outside of the leaf the mother lays hundreds of egg. The egg will turn from light green to light grey when its light grey it will be ready to Squirmin its way out of the egg. Once its out  it will eat the rest of the egg,the egg has vitamin C in it so it is healthy and Nutritious.

Stage 3 and 4

When the caterpillar has eaten the rest of the egg it will eat the milkweed leaves it would eat and eat.The caterpillar would shed its skin four to five times. When its time the Caterpillar would crawl over to a branch and find a comfortable spot and hang its selves upside down and turn itself into a cocoon shaped Chrysalis.

Stage 5 and 6

The caterpillar will take about three to four weeks to turn into a Chrysalis but when its ready to came out it will spread its wings. It will take the butterful butterfly about seven minutes four the blood to get into all of the blood vesels  and for the wing to grow bigger and stronger. In this stage of life the butterfly will fly off to find a mate and to start this life cycle all over again.

Year five & six camp

Year Five & six camp is were we camp out on the field we also sleep in tents and get into groups with leaders and I am one of those leaders. I am a team leader with Collin and our team is called The Care Takers and our team teacher is Mrs lavakula. A Team leader is a person who is in control of a group and some one who will be a Great role model. Camp leaders also have to make up dance moves for our camp item.Were doing our dance to Trouble maker we had to pick a song out of a box and read it out loud.

At camp we play lots of games outdoor and inside ones. A lot of our teachers and Parents are helping out with all of this stuff they help out with the food right to making sure we go to sleep all right .On Friday were going swimming at the Manuera pools Its going to be so much fun. At the Manuera pools theres a big slide were you drop then fly up in the air and splash in the water. You can also bomb in the pools.

Are you woundering were we sleep? Well were all sleeping in tents Thats right tents.We have to provide ourselves with a sleeping bag and a pillow.We don,t need to bring a tent they provide us with tents and we don't have one all to ourselves we have to share with other pepole from your own group.boys stay in there tents and girls stay in our tents so we get put into a tent with a friend.

 Im so looking forward to camp I hope I have fun like last year.

Writing test (A Good friend)

This is my writing test we had to do a explanation of what a good friend is.

This term our topic is Tiaki Toanga that means to care,to care for our people, to care for our school, to care for our efforts and to care for our success.

A good friend,It doesn't matter what they look like it doesn't matter what shape they are it doesn’t even matter what they wear you know they're a good friend if their. Nice,caring,thoughtful,protects you,has your back and Supports you. They can turn your frown upside down.

If you see someone with no friends or alone you should go up to them and ask them if they want to play with you,invite them to play in your game or ask them Questions about him or her. You never know you might have the same things in common.

If someones bulling you,teasing or just being a big meany then you know thats not a good friend. Because good friends don’t do that. You need to ignore people who do that and find people who look after you and care about you. If you fall down and hurt yourself a good friend will help you up and ask you if you're all right and they might take you to get a plaster or to clean it up.

Me and my friend Brooklyn are best friends thats only causes we care for each other and are nice to each other if we were fighting all the time then we wouldn’t be friends so if you be nice care and look after others around you then you could have a million friends.

Ambassardors speech!

I am apart of the seven Ambassadors and we had to say a speech in front of visitors. This was our first time and we had to talk to ten peopleI was felling excited and nervous. I had practised ever night and some times just before I went to school. First we said our introduction that was all about ourselves then we moved onto our school we talked about how we use netbooks and other technology and in the middle we played some movies, At the end we had to talk about a blog post that we did last term. Mine was about a post I did in the holidays called Arts in Crafts it was all about the stuff I created in the holidays. I made a painting, a caterpillar tooth brush holder, a golden leaf and other stuff. When the speech was finished I was felling happy. I really hope they liked my speech.

These are all the Ambassadors for 2014.

Use your W.I.T.S

This is my explanation of how to use your WITS.

Have you ever been bullied before? you should use your wits because they can help you when your anyoned or angry. Wits can also help in a problem or in a disagreement.

When your angry do you just feel like hitting something? You should use your wits just walk away and find something to do to take your mind of it. If you hit them you should put yourself in their shoes and how would you feel if someone hit you?

I is for ignore it, you need to ignore something like if someones being a bully or if someones being mean.If you're in a fight or something worst and you want to fix it. Its simple just ignore it. If this doesn't work maybe T will help you.

Now for T, T is for talk about if it is getting to tough to handle a problem or if you disagree with your friend talk about.

If the problem has gone to far seek help go find a teacher or an adult to help out with the problem. Because S means seek help.

I hope this has helped you with your problems. Will just run through them one last time W is for walk away, I is for ignore it, T is for talk about it and S is for seek help.

My statistical investigation

I was investigating what the Average temperature was for the Afternoon on the 19th of Feb. I found out that the Temperature rised higher at 4 o'clock and dropped at 11 o'clock.
I conclude that when the sun goes down the 
temperature drops with it. 

The easiest chart to read would be the at the top. I think its the easiest because it tells you when it goes higher and when it goes lower.
