Today the lucky Yr 7 & 8 extension students had the chance of attending Ormiston Junior college GEGNZ (Google Educator Group New Zealand) In the classrooms we got to present our topics and visit workshops. One group presented to kids about scratch and taught them how to create a game, then another group had to present about PENN and how it works. The first thing we did before anything else was go to the auditorium and start the day.

We all learnt more about coding, stop motion and how to film.

Noah's Speech Planner: Why should kids have homework!

Today I can tell that you want something exciting! Something incredible something Amazing, and what could be more amazing than Homework! do any of you enjoy homework? I know it’s something people dislike but that is just a part of life, do you ever feel lonely when your siblings are outside having fun while you are stuck inside finishing off homework, homework is important because kids go home after school and do barely anything, it is very good if kids do homework so they are not distracted from any games or social media for example Facebook, But hopefully none of you have a Facebook account.

Did you know that homework also helps people have better marks in their reports, it can also make whanau included in your child's work, and can regain knowledge. Homework can also be good for teachers because if the student is stuck on a question the teacher know’s what they need to work on. As a kid homework is just like vegetable’s it doesn’t taste so good but you have to eat it. Homework also gives valuable practice with what you've learned in class, repeating classroom concepts at home helps to cement in your mind the things you learned.

Guardians of the Galaxy Immersion Assembly Term 3

What a great start for term three, this term our whole topic is based on planet earth and beyond, the topic’s name is none other than the Guardians of the Galaxy. Would you like to know what the five teams have created in the holidays for there class focus. The reason why I liked this terms Immersion assembly is because it was much different than the other assembly’s.

Team 1 - Team 1’s focus was all about learning about the sun, the moon, outer space and how it works, they are also learning about how the earth keeps people alive. The team leader Miss Hockley came out and explained what they were doing and why she had giant glasses on.

Team 2 - Team 2’s topic focus was about how the sun and the moon change the earth. There movie was very interesting by how they sang and danced around, I really enjoyed there awesome costumes.

Team 3 - Team 3’s topic focus was about Time and seasons. In there movie they had trouble with time and how fast it went, they said they couldn’t set a time to make a meeting because of everything that was going on.

Team 4 - Team 4’s topic focus was all about exploring the universe by travelling to other places and seeing if it is safe for human lives, in the control room workers are smacking their keyboards to see if the astronaut was doing okay and how to move the rocket through space and set the destination.

Team 5 - Team 5’s topic focus is all about how tides change by the moon, also about what the moon is and the distance in space, One of the most important things that we are focusing on is the Gravitational pull.

The most informative movie was Team 1’s movie because they showed the most information about the planets and the stars and how hot the sun can be when people/astronauts go into space.

I think the most entertaining item would have to be team 5’s magnificent band, it was the most entertaining because all of the team 5 teachers were playing instruments and being silly, Mrs Judd however was lead singer and was very good at it.

The things I am looking forward in term 3 is learning about space and other planets, I also want to know more about people visiting other planets and seeing if there is another planet safe for humans.

How NASA Technology Benefit Lives


The space exploration has made new technologies that have changed our lives in lot’s of ways. Here is an example of some of the things they have created to change the world, NASA, (National Aeronautics Space Administration). Did you know? That the hurricane that hit mid-Atlantic on the 9th of September 2003, was predicted from NASA. So that way, more people survived and less people were injured. The first man to orbit the earth in space was called Yuri Gagarin, he made it back and was a very famous man, but sadly he died 7 years after his flight. He was a Russian astronaut. In the days we have now people can stay in space for a long time.

Noah's Yr 7 Special Week

Hello readers, last week we had a blast playing fun games, cooking and cool activities, the fun games we played were cup stacking challenges, the cooking we made were coconut truffles and lastly the cool activities like building towers out of marshmallows and spaghetti sticks. Now I will be telling about a few moments that was challenging, funny, made me feel nervous, and proud.

First of all, a challenging moment was when we were playing the marshmallow tower game, we had to stack them up high using only spaghetti sticks, the team that won got a clap, the people in my team were Tevita, Kosini, Sabrina, Simon and Mitchell. The sad thing was that we made a giant sculpture, but some of the sticks snapped and smashed the whole thing down.

Secondly, a funny moment was when we watched a movie called Cody Banks 2, it was really funny and made us all laugh, he was a secret agent that teamed up with British intelligence, to help destroy the evil men that wanted to take over the world using mind control microchips with a fake tooth to disguise it, but at the training camp none of the parents new that the children were agents.

Thirdly, a moment that made me feel nervous was on Friday where we performed our team chants. As Mrs Judd called our team up front to say our chant, I was so nervous because I was at Extension (Where people extend their learning) that morning so I didn’t practise it with my team, my leader’s got ready and screamed out the chant, for me I just followed on.


Lastly, A moment that I felt proud was at our school assembly before our games begun everyone had to line up except for me and a few others, I felt very proud of myself for standing up in front of everyone and taking over the role of being a Prefect, we had to make a korero for our school so they can do the right thing, the korero for that week was “Leave your toys at home” the reason we picked that korero is because we had a issue with people not doing their work because they were to busy playing with Fidget spinners.

Noah's Immersion Assembly Writing

Immersion Assembly

Welcome back Readers, Term 2 has started and I am ready for some more learning. I will be talking about the Immersion assembly and Term 2’s focus, The topic for this term is Now That’s Thinking, The reason why we do the Immersion Assembly is to show what the students are learning this term and the main focus, it’s lots of fun and a good way to get students back at school. All the teachers do a Item Presentation or movie.

All of the teams in our school did items and my favourite would have to be Team 5, It was funny because they were playing around and Mr Wiseman was acting Very Silly. I enjoyed it because it showed that you can always fix things.

Noah's Explanation Free Writing: Sushi

Have you ever wanted to taste the delicious dish of Sushi? Well, let me explain more about it.. Sushi is a Japanese meal that is very tasty, and if you buy it, I bet buying sushi will be a habit in your life. I am thankful that people invented it.

First of all, let's talk about the history. The original form of sushi first came to japan century in Japan around 2000 years ago. The original type of sushi was first developed in Southern Asia, where they ate rice and fish. The japanese started to eat three meals a day with rice.

The main tasty sushi dish is salmon and avocado together squished by rice and wrapped around with a layer of seaweed, one of my favourite recipes are Teriyaki chicken on rice with mayo, very delicious and tasty.

If you have never tried Sushi and you don’t know where it is, go to st pierre's sushi store in panmure right next to the roundabout, Hopefully you enjoyed this piece of writing.

Noah's Explanation Writing: What is one of my favourite pastimes


Hello readers, I am going to talk to you about one of my favourite past times, Well it has to start with Tidying up, I love tidying up because it makes me feel proud of myself and it looks very clean, plus I love playing with the vacuum because it feels like I’m driving a race car around my house, and besides if you do it then you won’t have to do it afterwards.

First I would have to go with tidying up because if visitors come to your house for a sleepover or for dinner, you won’t feel embarrassed if they say “this family doesn’t care about their house” so we should keep our houses clean and tidy because if people come over and see a nice and clean house they will want to stay the night there.

Lastly, we should tidy up our houses because if we clean it then after we won’t get into trouble by our parents. We should tidy up the first time or you will probably get in trouble. Your mother and father will be very proud of you.

There you have it, I have just explained to you what my favourite pastime is, so if you see anything that needs tidying up in your house, by all means tidy it up, but don’t shove it under the bed or in the wardrobe, instead tidy it up and life will be easier.

Why my mum is my role model

I would like to say that Shannon (mum) is my role model not because I like her more than anyone else but because she’s around most of the time. She is very nice to us and my three brothers, she gives us food, she helps my brothers and I with our homework, I love her and the good thing is she loves me, she also gives me hugs and kisses. I am blessed to have a mum.

Another way my mum is my role model is when she shows leadership, to us boys, she shows it by helping the church, and giving people food when they don’t have any, or just help take out the rubbish bins. She is a blessing to us and helps us whenever. We should show more leadership in our lives.


The next way my mum is my role model is she makes me feel happy, she makes me feel happy because when I feel lonely she comes and gives me comfort, especially when nobody's around. I like it when my mum gives me comfort because she also takes care of me. Here you have it, I have explained to you a couple of ways why my mum is my role model, hopefully you enjoyed my piece of writing,

My idea of a fun weekend

If I had to choose between a fun weekend or a sad one, I would choose a fun weekend, even if it’s chilling with my family and going to the pools and travelling to places, I love having a fun weekend. Here are a few ideas I would consider to make it a fun weekend.


Well I would start my fun weekend off by going to rainbows end. I would first eat a good breakfast like pancakes or french toast, pack some lunch and drive happily to rainbows end, I would go on most of the rides, and probably buy ice cream. I would won’t to go on the Invader, Roller coaster, Stratosfear, Power Surge, Fear fall and many more…

After Rainbows end I would enjoy going to the pools, I would pack swimming gear and googles. Then I would go to any pools I feel like, and have heaps of fun, bombing and doing flips off the diving board. It will also be refreshing if it is a hot day.

Lastly I would go to the Cinemas, I would go to the Sylvia park and get tickets, then would buy some snacks from the counter and head into the cinema with my Popcorn, Ice cream, Drink, and chocolates. Then I would enjoy watching a movie.

So there you have it, I have just explained to you what I would consider a fun weekend. Hopefully it will actually happen one day, If you are free on a saturday or sunday (After Church) try and do some of these things that are listed down here.

1. Rainbows end
2. Pools
3. Movies

Noah's Water as a source of life

Noah's Water crisis in auckland

Wednesday, 22 March 2017

Noah's Explanation Writing: Why people need to drink water?

What would we do without water, well not very much because our body needs to have water to survive. The human body has approximately 60% water in its body and even in the brain. Did you know that 70% of the earth is covered in water, if we don’t drink enough water we could go through dehydration, sickness, it can make us feel rotten.          

Did you know water helps things grow, it helps trees, plants, grass, everything, for a plant, water enters the stem, then travels up the plant to the leaves and that’s how it helps it grow. Right now it says that there are approximately over four hundred thousand plants left in the world and So we should take care of our plants or there will be less than 400,000 plants.

Why do we need water on earth, Water is precious and we can not survive without it, water helped plants to animals to humans, despite earth's appearance of water, less than one percent of the water on earth is fresh and usable.

Do you know about the water cycle, well it’s a system of how water works, here is a link to a reading called a interview with a glass of water, these are the states of the water cycle, Evaporation, is when the water goes up from oceans, lakes, rivers, and even off the ground. Transpiration is when the water gets lifted up from plants and trees and turns the water into vapor, and then gets lifted up into the sky, condensation is when the water that has been lifted from the sky turns into a cloud (Condensed water) then when all the water comes into the cloud it makes water drops that are stored into the clouds until they are heavy enough to fall down onto the ground, Precipitation is when the water that is in the clouds drop down in forms of either rain, snow, sleet or hail.

So we’ve learnt that we should drink water and how it helps you hydrated, we also learnt that water helps grow things, then we learnt why we need water on earth, and lastly we learnt about the water cycle and how it works.

POLYFEST EVENT

Have you ever been to Polyfest? Well yesterday I went to Polyfest, Polyfest is a event that people go to and see other cultures perform, I was lucky enough to experience it with the team 5 year 7 & 8s. We saw many items including the Maori stage and Tongan stage. There were also a lot of stalls there that selled food and cool activities.

One of my favourite things was the program, it had fun and exciting activities, like Te Wananga O Aotearoa where they played music by the DJ, and used a 3D camera to take footage of all of us dancing, I enjoyed watching my friend Tevita show of his moves to everyone, while Tevita was dancing I was at the back dancing as well.


The second favourite thing I loved was the food, it was Delicious! Since we were allowed to use our own money, my other friend Simon had a ten dollar note in his bag. Luckily he said he was going to buy me something with his money. As we walked over to a little spot, me and my friends sat and enjoyed the marvelous Screenshot 2017-03-17 at 12.19.32 PM.png

I think Polyfest is good for students because the program tells them about the Pacific and languages, also they would probably love the food and the cool activities. It’s also good for students to see their own cultures being performed and spoken by lots of people.

Next time you hear something about Polyfest come along and  enjoy the performances and food and most of all HAVE FUN!

Noah's Extension Hoyts Trip


Image result for hidden figuresWhen people go to Sylvia park sometimes they buy things from the shops, or go to restaurants. Well for me I have got the privilege to go with a group of students to see and enjoy the movie Hidden Figures. Where three amazing women take on the world and help N.A.S.A (short for National Aeronautics Space Administration) calculate the safe travel of the astronaut. They were
brave and had courage since they were part of a small group with only African American women in the group, I am going to enjoy it with the extension crew, Mrs Lagitupu and Mr Vogt. Can’t Wait!

Saving water Poster


As you can see I have created my very own (Save Water) Poster. I have put a lot of effort into this piece of artwork, and hopefully we actually do as it says, to look after our environment, oceans, lakes rivers, creeks and even our planet. We should be careful about how much water we use everyday, and try to save it instead of wasting it!
