Imaginary story

Solo the sausage dog has hair like no other dog, it is brown and curly, it is not that long. He is 2 foot long and 30 centimetre wide. He  likes to chill outside on the grass when it's sunny. He always has a smile on his face like a dog  getting fed. He has dull brown hair but bright blue eyes. 

Solo’s habits are eating food and singing the sausage song. Solo’s place where he hangs out is his kennel, it's quite big so he can fit in it. His special talent is stretching. The person he hangs out with is Johnny.

Solo’s typical phrase is woof woof woof because he’s a dog. He talks so loud and fast to other people, that people can hardly understand him because, it just sounds like blah, blah, blah.

Solo’s friend Johnny the sausage dog loves to hang out with Solo. He loves to do the same things that Solo loves to do. One of the things that they love to do is eating food.

Travis Wetlands

On Wednesday on a trip and we went to Travis Wetlands it was a long walk. We  saw a lot of wildlife there. We went there for a trip in the nature and we had to find some birds. This photo shows a pukeko in its habitat

Riccarton bush

On Wednesday we went to Riccarton Bush for a class trip. We did an amazing adventure trail in the bush. We took this photo because there is a lot of trees in the background.

Discovery time reflection


The activity I have enjoyed the most is wood work because I could use my imagination. The challenges I encountered during discovery was hammering in nails because I have not really hammered in nails before. I overcame this challenge by practising a lot. I have learnt to hammer in nails really hard so they don't fall out.

The main key competencies I have worked on are being patient and taking time to achieve a good result. The key competency I have improved is taking time to work things out because I used to rush and not take time and now I take my time.  The things I am looking forward to in discovery are woodwork and the sports.

Speech reflection

The parts of my speech I enjoyed the most is that I did manage to write it out. The things I am most proud of is how I wrote it. One of my challenges while writing my speech was editing and proofreading. I overcame my challenge by working hard. Overall I feel good about the way my speech was written because I did it to the best of my ability.

As I practiced my speech out loud I tried to speak clearly so my friends could hear me clearly. I think I did follow my speech when  I was presenting it to the class because I followed my cue cards. I was challenged to use facial expressions as I presented my speech to the class. I overcame this challenge by using face expressions when it suited. Overall I feel I presented my speech to the best of my ability.

Technology

Do you think people are becoming lazy by using technology?  Learning nothing because they are playing video games? Picture this …. It is a beautiful day, sun shining, someone is on a screen inside, sitting on their lazy bum. 

Segway is a board with two wheels, two pressure plates, and it moves when your body moves.  It doesn’t go faster than walking. Imagine if you are walking along and a person comes slowly by on a Segway and you are moving around the same pace. So what's the point of Segways if they don't go faster than walking? How's that for lazy.
 
TV is another example of technology that encourages laziness. Picture this... it’s a beautiful day, the sun is shining and someone is inside, lounging around on the couch watching tv, doing nothing. That person could be outside playing sport like football, rugby, cricket but instead they choose to be inside doing nothing. How's that for lazy.

iPads is a third example of technology that encourages laziness because people are spending many hours on them. My brother spends about 6 hours on his iPad each day watching stupid minecraft videos on YouTube. He hardly ever goes outside, he's learning nothing, just watching minecraft and getting a lot better at it. How's that for lazy.

Technology like iPads, computers, Segways, TVs, X-box are encouraging people to spend way too long inside, sitting on their lazy bums even when it's a beautiful day outside. 

Every day you should be have daily dose of vitamin D by being out in the sunlight, it makes your mood happier. Be active - follow the mental health foundations advice by having fun outside to move your mood. I’m off to play a game of cricket.

Waking up

I started my day by waking up at 5:00 a.m and said to my teddy Dar “How are you going?” She said back “How are you going?” So I try to go back to sleep. I did. I woke up at 7:00 a.m then dragged myself out of bed into the living room and did my jobs slowly - got some breakfast, watched some t.v. packed my bag, brushed my teeth. At 8:10 a.m I walked to school with my annoying brother.
