Microscope In Science


For science lesson we put our selves into pairs and got given a microscope that we had to connect into the wall piece. Our first step was to grab a slide which is a little rectangular shaped  glass that has a little dip in the middle of the centre. In the centre of the slide we use a pipette that is used to transform a source of liquid into the little dip that is found in the centre of a slide. We then place the slide onto the microscope machine that then can show us the little bacteria found in the liquid source. On the left side is a photograph that represents what we saw through the microscope.


MRS C GREN


I think that is it was fun doing this with my friends, and I learnt a lot about MRS C GREN. MRS C GREN stands for an acronym often used to help remember all the necessary features of living organisms: Movement, Respiration, Sensitivity, Growth, Reproduction, Excretion and Nutrition. None living things can not do all of the the things that it says in MRS C GREN. The people that help me with this is my two friends Kalo and Henrietta.

An Interesting And Informative Eruption

Hi I'm Meafou and I'm going to tell you my experience about the eruption. So it was the summer time and I was at the beach. Then all of a sadden I herd a lot of noise people screaming and children crying and people running. I then turn my head and saw that there was an eruption happening right there before my eyes. The water was moving and it  blew up a lot of ash burst out into the sky. Then the blue sky turn black and gray, it was filled with darkness and the sun was gone. The waves on the sea were big and it was enormous, it was almost like it was a tsunami. When it was all over I made my way to where everyone was, then I saw a lot of ash and gas around me. It was dark and ugly, also everyone gather in the main hall there were blankets, and some food. I felt sorrow in my heart and there were some kids that lots there family. Also there was shelter was provided for people that had nowhere to go.

Made in Taiwan

This article is mainly about two men named Oscar and Nathan who want to trace their origins of their people, to find their identities. Also there adventure that is about to begin started in New Zealand, which is also called Aotearoa. So the two  men named Oscar and Nathan wanting to know where their ancestors come from so they take a swab and send it to Oxford. While waiting for the results they sail on a waka all the way to Mahia through Vanuatu, Samoa and The Cook Islands. Once they arrive in Mahia they receive their results and sit down with Nathan’s parents to reveal their results. I think that him finding out that his family are descendants of the Taiwan.

They travel to the Cook Islands to find out more about their ancestors because a lot of cook Islanders had the same Clan father as him. They see where the Canoes left from the Cook Islands to Aotearoa and discover all the special monument there. They notice all the weeds and stuff making the monument look dirty so they clean it up. They visit a cook Island family’s house and see how similar they are to New Zealand Maori people. The people that are from there are just like the people that are from New Zealand. And they traveled to the Islands of Samoa.

When they’re finished in Cook Island they head off to Samoa to catch up with Oscar’s family. They first go to his cousins that used to look after him and Oscar goes on to show Nathan where they bury some relatives like his dad and others, once his dad passed away, his mum took him to New Zealand for a long time. But when he went to New Zealand, he didn’t really want to go back to Samoa because of what happened to his family.


When he was traveling to all the places where his ancestors where he learned a lot about where he was from and he found out who he really was. He was really happy finding out that his family was a very big family. Also the places that he had visited were sacred and traditional to his ancestors that lived 3000 years ago.

First design of engineering


On Tuesday the 6th of March, 9tgn crafted a module of what it would look like if an earthquake hit. First Mrs Wells handed out the equipment that we were going to use. Also we didn't have to use all of it for our  earthquake model. My group thought about what the plan was to create a house that would last throw out a big or small earthquake. We started of with a Triangle shape, and kind of worked but then it just fell over and broke. But then I made my own and it served the earthquake.

Kaikoura Quake


Image result for Kaikoura Quake

New Zealand's largest fault line is more active than scientists previously thought and could generate "mega thrust" earthquakes up to magnitude 9.0, and giant tsunamis. A year after the magnitude-7.8 2016 Kaikoura earthquake, scientists fear that it wasn't "the big one". The Hikurangi fault abduction zone, which spans offshore from the east of Gisborne to around Kaikoura and the top of the South Island, had been thought dormant before the massive Kaikoura tremor, Fairfax reports. I think that all of these earthquakes are very important and that people should be aware of when it is going to happen.

Rainbows End Night Rides

On Saturday night me and my siblings went to Rainbows End. We arrived at 6:00pm, it was still morning when we first arrived there. The theme of our clothes were black and white, I was filled with excitement, and it was my first time going to Rainbows End. Me and my sisters rode ten rides in 5 hours, do you think that is even possible. Well I think so and it was very enjoyable for all of us.  When it was getting late we got ready to go one last ride and it was the stratosfear. I felt butterflies in my tummy and my legs were shaking. So when the man called us to come in and take a seat, I couldn't really feel butterflies in my tummy anymore. Then I was fill with confident and boy was to scary when we went upside down, it was like I was off my seat. So when my sisters went again I took a video of them screaming as if they were going to fall off. The rides that we went on was Corkscrew Coaster, Scorpion Karts, Family Karts, Log Flume, Invader, Power Surge, Bumper Boats, Fearfall, Gold Rush, Motion Master. Those are the ten rides that we went on.
