Why do we have Labour Day

Why do we have Labour Day? If that’s the question you’ve been asking yourself for too long, you have come to the right place. I will be telling you about why we have Labour Day and what we celebrate.

New Zealand is one of the first countries to work 8 hours a day, and it is all because of a legend named Samuel Parnell. He was brave enough to fight for himself because in his opinion over 8 hours of work was too long. He went to court and he convinced the government to only give workers 8 hours a day. But sadly the legend passed 2 weeks after.

Now that the Labour Party has finally won. We now have a new Government and a new Prime Minister. So that means the hard workers might have more time to see and spent time with their loved ones.

So did you learn why we have Labour Day? If you didn't, Google's always another option. Besides that thank you for reading my Explanation post and have a great day. By Ajani

Planning for Term 3 Project

Term 3 Reflection

Term 3 Extension Task! It gets harder and harder every Term. This was one of the hardest so far. Our Task was to use Makey Makey and code to make an instrument to play either the song Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, Happy birthday or a song that you know how to play. If you don’t know what Makey Makey is the information is on here. My group, Me and Tevita chose to play Happy Birthday. Tevita was playing the drums and I was playing the piano. First I had to create a piano by using a cardboard box and had to cut little cardboard pieces to represent the tiles. Tevita used a playdough container and put the playdough pieces on top and used pencils to represent the drum sticks. The biggest challenge was getting the notes and playing the note on time. At the end we got it done and we were awsome. Now Term 4 is coming. BRING IT ON!
