Unlocking Life's Secret Code

Walt:Find out about different cells

For the last 2 terms we have been doing this massive presentation about genomics.
It was really fun. This year has been a great year of learning science. This is good
because at college we will already know a variety of stuff about science. This
presentation was about things like different cells, nucleus, chromosomes, and more.
I hope to learn more things about not only genomics but other science like astronomy,
biology, chemistry and more. It was very great doing this work. I learnt so much things.
I learnt things about the DNA, blood cells, even zebra fish.

COED schools

WALT: use evidence to support our arguments
Do you think COED is better than a single gender school? COED schools are better
because things like it lets both girls and boys socialize better. Plus Also being in a same
gender school will cause way more drama then it should. This essay will tell you why
coed schools are better.

COED schools are better because you can socialize more. Socializing with girls
are really important because there are gonna be a lot of girls in your life. Boys learning
with girls lets both genders prepare for the real world. When boys and girls are taught
to interact with one another, they can use the skill to do it after they graduate, and both
genders will be more comfortable collaborating with each other.

Attending in a single gender school will create way more drama. Being in an all boys
school, or an all girls school are more competitive because there will be sports teams,
and that’ll mean that you will be competing with every because there the same gender.
Even in academic, how people are trying to be the smartest boy or the smartest girl.

Being a COED school means that everyone is taught equally. With both genders in the
same class together and doing activities both boys, and girls will learn about the equal
rights between boys and girls. COED schools treat students the same when they are
told to do something. There is not a time where a person gets special treatment and
all students are ranked for their work not the gender type.

COED schools are better for so many more reasons. Many people have many
different opinions on whether one is better than the other. This is just my point of view on this topic. 
What do you think? Is COED better than a single gender school?

Task Description: Room 4 Literacy learnt about the disadvantages and the advantages of
being in a coed school. We brain stormed all our ideas and made it into a writing presentation.

How to be a good son

WALT: write engaging introductions

Would your parents say your a good son? To be an amazing son you need to do
things such as listening, being helpful, and a lot more. Being a good son is really
important because your parents will want to love you, give you treats, and they
will be proud of you. This essay will tell you how to be a good son.

If you want to be a good son you need to start by actively listening. For
instance when your parents are telling you something you need to listen asap.
Your parents are the ones that know best, and they want to give you the best
advice for anything that you will experience. Your parents will try their best to
protect you from the mistakes they made. 

To be a good son you need to be helpful. Helping around the house will give
extra time for your parents to do more important things in their lives. For example
making breakfast for younger siblings will save time for you and your parents
to eat, then after that you can follow that up with doing the dishes after. 

Last tip on being a good son is to be grateful. When your parents have
cooked something, or bought you something  a great way to thank them
is to just be grateful and do all these tips. Being grateful will make them feel
proud about their work they have done for you. 

In conclusion to be a good son you need to be helpful, a great listener, and be grateful.
Your parents are one of the most important people in your life. Make them proud.

Is Rugby safe to play in school?

WALT: Recognize that good writing techniques are universal
Do you play Rugby? Rugby is New Zealand biggest sport,
and many kids play it, but is Rugby safe to play at school?
Schools are starting to ban rugby at school. Do you think
rugby is safe to play in school? 

Rugby is a pretty rough sport. You could get bad injuries
like broken neck or a broken back, but if you have the right
gears you could play rugby in school grounds. Rugby at school
is good because you maybe training for a tournament, or a game.
Rugby in school should be allowed but only You have the right gear. 

Playing Rugby could be good. You never know there could be
people recruiting people to colleges. Plus every kiwi kid’s
dream is to be an all black or a warrior, and it all starts with
school or club.  

Another reason is that kids will love to play rugby. They will
be very excited to play. Kids will always love to play their
favorite sport, and will come back to class happily.  Maybe
that will be the reason why they even come school..

Rugby is a wonderful sport. Playing at school is very fun but
dangerous. It is OK to play rugby at school but as long as you
have your gear, and a ref or a coach. Do you think it's safe to
play rugby at school?

Task Description: In room 4 literacy class we had to right about is rugby safe at school. The class was trying to learn how to persuade people. This writing is not really persuasive but i tried...

Animal Testing

WALT: Use correct paragraph structure

 Having Animal testing is pretty important. It's like choosing whether a human or an animal should live. Even though animals are cute, playful and they keep you company, humans are worth more because of things such as intelligence, and technology. This essay will tell you why we need animal testing to help us survive.

 If one of your family members are being tortured from an eternal disease would you do everything you could just to keep them alive? If letting a few disgusting rats die meant saving someone's life would you let it happen?

 People disagree with animal testing because the fact that its animals that are getting tortured. They just care for animals and i do too, but animal testing is for humans. Humans obviously need to live. Animal testing is needed for humans to survive.

Fun fact, Humans share most genes with a rat, Humans and rats are warm blooded, and we both are likely to have the same disease, so it would make sense why they test it on rats and mice. They also suffer from things like cancer, Flue, and asthma.

 Animal testing on zebra fish will also probably be good because they could find a cure for unborn or new born babies who are already suffering from bad diseases. Zebra fish are another animal who have so much in common with humans. Zebra fish and humans share roughly 70 percent of the same genes. 

Scientist have been animal testing for a long time now, but although their trying to find cures they still haven't found any yet. That's starting to be a problem because their just killing animals, but they will eventually find some cures. What do you think about animal testing?

Task Description: Room 4 literacy class has had this discussion for 2 weeks now.  We learnt so much about it now and we had to write an essay about our opinion. Everybody had different opinions.

Perimeter, Area, and Volume

WALT: Understand Area, Perimeter, and Volume.
Task description:

Wednesday, 21 August 2019

 all our ideas we could get from that video and make a blog post.

WALT: Understand what Area and Perimeter is.

Task Description: In room 3 math we learnt the area and perimeter.
We got given a presentation to complete. We also had some fun time tables
while we were at it.

The Web Of Life

Walt: find out what the web of life means

Task Description: This is my poster about The Web of Life. For Science/Inquiry
we watched a video that told us about The Web or Life. We then got Ideas
and took those Ideas into a presentation. The web of life is how everything
Came to what it is today.


Aliens are what people believe to be another kind of human. Some people think that aliens exist
and some people don't. Scientists are still trying to see if aliens could or do exist by researching
new planets that are able to have life on it. 

A Lot of people believe that aliens exist because of all the videos of sightings of ufos of an alien.
Those videos are able to persuade them into thinking they are real by making them look realistic.
People also think aliens exist because the place area 51. It is said that area 51 is a place where the
military test their new weapons on. 

On the other hand people believe that they don't exist because either they are non believers, or they
Don’t believe because there's no proof. Aliens seem really fake so I can understand why they don't

believe they aren’t real.

Yes scientists still haven't proved that aliens are real but there are still searching. If there are more
than 30 billion planets there definitely should be life on at least one of them. I believe aliens
aren't real but I think there can be life on other planets.

Everybody is talking about it around the world. On the day September the 20th
There is a thing where 1 million people are going to rush or storm area 51. The reason
why is because people think that the government is hiding aliens and that's why they are
being so strict about area 51. I don't really think that its real but it seems real for some reason.
They even have a plan. I find the subject aliens are very interesting. Do you believe Aliens are real?

Minecraft Information Report

Minecraft is a game about placing blocks, removing blocks, and going on adventures. It was made by Markus Persson. Minecraft was also made Minecraft is also a multiplayer game which means you can play with anyone around the world. In Minecraft there are two different modes Creative, and Survival.

In Survival you have to Try survive day and night. Survival mode is one of the main game modes in Minecraft. You have to make amour, and weapons to help you survive longer. Players must collect resources, build bases, Fight monsters, eat, and explore the world and survive. There are no levels, or points. It can be played by one to twenty players! You can play for as long as you want day and night, Rain or shine. It is like starting life from scratch because you need materials to make something good. The aim of the game is to clock it by going to the ender portal and defeat the ender dragon and just survive.

Well in creative it is a whole different story. In creative instead of having to make stuff get another thing you can get anything you want straight off the bat. You also do not take any damage. Mobs will still spawn, but won't attack you. Creative mode is mostly made for people who want to free build, and build massive structures without having to worry about anything getting in your way. This will also make you have an ability to fly by double jumping.

 Overall Minecraft is a fantastic game. You should try it. It may of died but it is still fun to play with family, and friends.

Little red riding hood.

 Once upon a time there lived a little girl. Her mother had a little red riding hood made for her. Everybody called her Little Red Riding Hood. One day her mother said to her “Go and see how your grandmother is doing, because she has been very ill.” Little Red Riding Hood went out immediately. As she was going through the wood, she met with a wolf. He asked her where she was going. “I am going to see my grandmother.” “Does she live far off?” said the wolf. “It is near that tree is you see there”. It was not long before the wolf arrived at the grandmas house. He knocked at the door. Tap, tap, tap. “Who’s there?” “Your grandchild, Little Red Riding Hood,” said the wolf, But the wolf was actually faking it The grandmother called out, “Pull the string, and the latch will go up.” The wolf pulled the string and the door opened, and then he immediately fell upon the good woman and ate her up in a moment. He then shut the door and got into the grandmother’s bed, expecting Little Red Riding Hood, who came some time afterwards and knocked at the door. Tap, tap, tap. “Who’s there?” “It is your grandchild, Little Red Riding Hood.” The wolf cried out, “Pull the string, and the latch will go up.” Little Red Riding Hood pulled the string, and the door opened. “Grandmother, what big arms you have!” “Grandmother, what big ears you have!” “Grandmother, what big eyes you have!” “Grandmother, what big teeth you have got!” “All the better to eat you up with.” Fortunately, a hunter was passing nearby the hut. He heard the wolf, and recognised him right away. He ran over to the window. He took a good aim, and that was the end of the wolf.

Scary Night

Scary night
By Kruz
I was closing up the shop one night after a long shift. As I was carrying a
rack of drinks into the fridge, I slipped on the wet floor I had just mopped,
fell to the floor, and let out a loud“Aaah!”
Immediately after as I’m sitting on the wet floor, I hear a low pitched groan. I
t was so audible that I actually thought it was a real person. This was scary
since I was the only person left in the shop. I stood up, completely frozen,
and shouted, “hello?!”
Again, immediately, I hear the same low-pitched groan, except this time it
was louder. Now I’m starting to freak out a little bit, but for whatever reason,
I decide to walk closer to where I heard the sound coming from. I yell very
loudly, “HELLO??!”
For the third time, I now hear a VERY loud, low-pitched groan.
That was it for me. I ran back into the kitchen, grabbed the biggest mop I
could find (because that seemed smart at the time) grabbed my bag, ran
out the door, and never looked back.

It was funny trying to explain to the manager the next day why he was
missing a mop during his morning work. But the creepiest part that I
come to find out that there was a accident that had occurred in the shop
years before, with the daughter of the owner a that had died right there in
the shop. I quit the job and never came back to that shop again.

I did this in my free time
