Geometry Task Day 1

Today in the middle block we had a task. The task was to make a rocket with cubes and to take pictures of it on every angle, Front View, Side View, Top View and the Perspective View. We had to buddy up
with someone so I picked one of my great, smart, nice friends, Noah. We struggled at the start but got easier as we went on.

This was a very fun task and highly recommend to do it yourself. All you need is connectable cubes a book to write in and a buddy/friend. I loved doing this and here are photos of me and Noah working on this task. Give me a comment below on if you think that this would be fun or not. Thank You for reading my blog post. I will try to show you my finished rocket ship later on tomorrow.

Anual Speech Competition P.E.S

Have you ever said a speech in front of over 150 students? I haven’t but some of the students in Team 5 did last Friday. For some of them it was like an impossible mission that your mum has assigned you to like doing the whole washing in 1 hour, but for others it was like a  walk in the park. I am going to tell you what speech I found appealing and the speech I found entertaining.
3 students from each class from Class. The students names were put in a box and the teachers had to pull one out and whoevers name was pulled out goes first or next. Next please?

The speech that I found appealing the most was Danielle's. It is appealing to me because I can relate to it. It relates to me because it happened to me in tonga with my grandad but he’s with the lord and saviour now. Danielle’s speech was about why she thinks that drugs and that kind of medication is bad for you. Her speech was very deep so get yourself some tissues and prepare to cry. Her speech was about her Grandma and how she passed away by taking medication she also spoke about why you should tell your family members to not take too much medication because there is a big risk on your life. I also liked how she picked this topic and knew it was going to be hard to talk about.

The most entertaining speech to me was Mubashshir’s he was very very funny and I enjoyed every second of his speech. The speech was about what would he would do if he were President for a day. The first thing he would do was help the homeless that is a big reason why I liked his speech. He also wanted to try and stop pollution. I liked how he used actions and spoke clearly. He also wanted to provide more money to schools and to businesses that are struggling with money.

Well, it’s that time there’s always an end to a writing. It’s time for this writing to end, but before I go tell me in the comment section does Danielle’s speech relate to you? Or what would you do if you were president a day. Thank you for reading my writing. Bye

GEGNZ Student Summit

WOOAAH!! Is what the whole Year 7&8 Extension Team said when we saw what Ormiston Junior College in real life. It was so big that it was probably 15 times Pt England. I know right very very big. We were very lucky to go to GEGNZ Student Summit and present to over 20 people. I was privileged and lucky enough to be in one of those groups.

My group told the schools about what PENN is and how it operates, while the other told them how to create a simple game using Scratch. Over 400 students attended this in 2017. We had to get  to school before 7:45 in the morning. It was very fun and the students were very well behaved.

The PENN teams presentation started at 10:00 and the Scrstch team started at 10:30. I am proud of my team for pushing through even with a person absent. My team did great and so did the Scratch team. It was an amazing experience and I would love to do it again.

One of my favourite parts were visiting other workshops. Especially the stop motion workshops. They spoke very clearly and were confident. They were only 8 and 9 years old and did very well. So me and the PENN group went to them after they finished and congratulated them and told them how good they were and how well they held themselves. Well done to Mitchell, Ana, Yvonne and Simon for getting prizes.

The Space Race

Hey you! Do you think you know about The Space Race. If you do than
correct me if i'm wrong in the comment section below. I didn't know what it
meant at first but I learnt a bit of it as we went on into the week. So go on
look at my presentation.

Own Devices At School?

Should we be allowed to bring our own devices to school? I think we should and here's why. Many people around G.I and Panmure have their own device and are under the age of 14, but the person who has bought the device for the child will most likely have a reason to buy him or her a device.

Another reason why I think we should be allowed to bring our devices to school is because there might of been an tragic accident, for example a car crash and it involves the person who picks you up after school. So someone texts you and tells you about this car accident they tell you.

One reason I think we should be allowed to bring our device to school is because we may need to call our mum, dad or caregiver. For example you have training and you forgot your boots and you need them or you can’t train so you text your dad and he brings your boots to where you train. If he didn’t have his device then he would of missed training for that day. So the coaches think that you aren’t committed to the team.

Another reason why I think we should be allowed to bring our devices to school is because there might of been an tragic accident, for example a car crash and it involves the person who picks you up after school. So someone texts you and tells you about this car accident they tell you where to go, who you will be picked up by and what to do. But if he or she did not have here phone they will most likely to be confused and anxious.

Well That's my opinion.. What’s yours? Tell me at the comment section below what your opinion is and if you learnt anything.
