The piece of the Earth

On Friday Room 8 created a puzzle art.
On Friday I was given a quarter ( 1/4 )  of the earth.
The other people in my class had 1/20 of the solar system. Something that  challenged me was that my piece was big so it took me a long time to colour it in.  What I could do better is try to use a ruler so my piece can fit.

Describing the sun

Did you know the sun is like a big giant magnet?

The sun is like a giant gas fire ball.

The sun has huge solar flares!

The sun is like a massive hydrogen bomb.

Sometimes people call the sun a giant star.

Did you know that solar system means sun system?

Exhausting Volleyball session 1

Last week on volleyball Room 8 were learning how to serve the foam volleyball.
Then we played a game. I did not know what the game was called but I know how to play it.

To play you need to split into two teams.
After one person is the catcher the rest of the students needs to serve. If the catcher has caught the ball the person that served goes and helps him on the other side of the net.

To win the game everybody has to serve the ball, then they go to the other side.
At Volleyball the challenging thing was to serve due to the wind that carried the ball over the fence.
This week I think this session is going to be about serving and just have fun.

The first Panmure Bridge

A few Fridays ago Room 5 to 8  went down to the Panmure Yacht Club to view the site where the first Panmure Bridge was built. The first bridge that was built was a swing bridge so the boats can go through the Tamaki river. Before the swing bridge was built the Maori used a punt for people to sell their vegetables and fruits. Another reason they built the bridge was because the farmers could go over to the Pakuranga fields to grow plants , fruit and crops. A few years later the bridge was old and unsafe so the people demolished it completely. When the swing bridge opened and closed the swing bridge sounded like someone was hitting  a drum.

Two weeks ago in Miami, America a bridge collapsed on the 8 lane highway and the passing people were seriously injured. Soon the ambulance, police and firefighters came to help the crushed cars and seriously injured people.
Before that happened on the 8 lane highway there was a pedestrian who was crossing the 8 lane highway going to university who got crushed by a car. One week after that people started to build a footbridge so the people could be safe from getting crushed. The footbridge was made out of steel , wood , concrete and quartz.

El Alamein


The El Alamein campaign had a battle with their enemies. During the battle the British used mines and guns. At 9:40 pm mines were lit up. The people who won the battle was us.
Alamein T.P.S
I think they gave us the road called Alamein next to Tamaki Primary School because I think that is where the Maori used to live. The Maori´s were also soldiers and warriors.
