“Coming mum were gonna be late for rainbows end”
i shouted. Today was a special day for me and my
rugby team to go have some fun at rainbows end.
So when me and my dad and mum weren't there we
saw one off my rugby mates at the entry. “Hey zach”
i said. We saw my friend zach with his mum the

We had to pay the tickets to get in. luckily it was cheap
for us to go inside. When we got in the first ride we
went on was the scorpion karts. It was my first time
because when i first came too rainbows end i was in
the kids kingdom but now i'm in the big area. My reaction
was i little shockness. The first time i went too rainbows
end was when i was 4 years old. We were there for a
long time until it closed it was 8am-5pm. We went on the
log ride, the family carts, the motion master, and the
gold mine. The ride that i mostly went on was the
scorpion karts. By the day ended everyone left too
home. There was one more ride available until it closed,
it was the devil spinner. Later on we went back home
today was the funniest day ever.

stop cutting trees

Stop cutting our trees so we don't get bad
weather and don't get less oxygen. If we
cut all the trees down the world will be out
off oxygen and everyone would die. There
would be more carbon dioxide and the
atmosphere above the earth will trap heat.
This will increase global warming.

So i chose to make this poster to tell the
people stop cutting trees.

We decided to choose a flower because when we all get together we would always feel strong. Because when we get together we will always love each other.

Global warming

Earth has a atmosphere that
has an layer of gases like oxygen, carbon
dioxide, and methane and all other gases.
Earth is the warm planet. Carbon dioxide is
in the earth's atmosphere traps the
sun's heat, that is called greenhouse
effect. The smoke of the factories and the
cars increase more carbon dioxide. More
carbon dioxide in the the earth's
atmosphere means abossbition of heat.
When the earth is warm heat waves
produce and wildfires will happen. All
habitats of animals and birds will get
destroyed. More smoke would produce
carbon dioxide. There would be no glaciers
left.  When the glaicers melt Flooding
would be happening. Islands
will be submerged in the sea.
To stop global warming we need to plant
more trees. Trees will absorb carbon
dioxide and earth will cool down.Image result for carbon dioxide

types of volcanoes

Active volcanoes
An active volcano is a volcano that has
had at least one eruption during the past
10,000 years or is still having a eruption.
Dormant volcanoes
An dormant volcano is an volcano that has not
erupted in 10,000 years but is suprizly erupt
soon. It is the sleepy volcano but can wake up
and erupt and go to sleep again.
Extinct volcanoes
An extinct volcano has not had an eruption for at least 10,000 years and is not expected to erupt again in a comparable time scale of the futureImage result for active volcanoImage result for dormant volcanoImage result for extinct volcano

how does an earthquake happen

How do earthquakes happen?
Earthquakes are usually happen underground. That when the earth gets so hot that its forming an crust. This  creates a tremors. When two plates are rubbing against each other, they stick an little. When the rocks break, the earthquake happens. The tectonic plates and re moving. One go high and one goes low. It can usually happen in the water because off a epicenter. An epicenter is when it originated the earthquake.

earthquake in christchurch\

Scene off earthquake

I was going for an walk around the city until I
felt a rumble in the ground. It was feeling like
the ground was about to crack. Suddenly
another rumble was activated. So I started
holding something until the ground stopped to
rumble. I was in an middle off a earthquake.
The tremors continued. I got  something to
hold on. But this rumble was for long and
strong too. The ground was starting to crack
beneath me and the buildings were starting to
collapse. I was in panic and did not know what
to do.

matariki chart

Today we surveyed 24 maori students. 18 maori
students said that they do not celebrate matariki at
their home. Out off 24 maori students only 1 maori
student said they go outside to see the matariki
stars and eat marshmallows.

3 maori students said they eat dinner or BBQ with
their friends and family. This shows us that our
festival is dying and not that maori students are
celebrating matariki.

maths problem

The Sun

The sun
At the centre of the solar system. There is a burning
ball off gas called the sun. It has two main gases
called hydrogen and helium. Helium atoms can
attract together to produce heat, light, and radiation.
The sun has tremendous gravitational pull holding
all the planets instead of them drifting to space. The
sun is actually a star just very very closer to the
earth. The heat and the light produces from the
helium atoms it is important for us to survive on
earth. Without the sun there would be no heat,
no light, and plants could not grow and everything
would Freeze.

Trip too Stardome
At stardome we were learning about space that
we've done at school. First we went in too the
space room. There was an man that showed how
our sun and our moon works. So some people say
that the moon is what makes the earth dark but it
is the shade what makes it dark cause the earth
rotates around the sun and it spins too. A if it spins
and new zealand is on the shade that is why it is
dark. The moon is little when you see it on earth.
It looks so close but it is just really far away.
Sometimes the moon can be a crescent, half, or full.
How that works is that the moon also orbits around
the sun but fast. The moon is the littles it spins
around the earth fast as. And that's why it looks
different cause some off it is shady and some bright.

The earth

The earth

Earth is a planet where every human lives.
This unique planet has everything for an
human. Earth has 2 elements, water, and
oxygen. Earth is actually called a goldilocks
planet. Because the planet earth is not too
hot and not too cold it has just the right
temperature for life to exist. It is almost same
size as venus.

planets in the solar system

the planets in the solar system
Mercury is the smallest planet in our solar system

Earth is the safest place where humans can live

Jupiter has 67 moons and it is the largest planet
in our solar system

Mars is the fourth planet from the sun and
is the second smallest planet in our solar system.



Venus is the second planet from the Sun. venus
is earth's sister. Because they are almost the
same size and same gravity. Venus is the
hottest planet even though it is the second planet
from the Sun. venus has a atmosphere off
karbondioksida. If you breath with karbondioksida
for 20 minutes you will die. Venus has no water
and no oxygen. Anybody that visits venus will
be burned to death that's why we can’t survive
on venus. If you see the first star that appears
at sun set and sun light that is venus.

The sun

The sun

The sun is in the heart of our solar system. 4.5 billion years ago an big ball off gas came out called the sun. the sun created helium and hydrogen. The sun has only six layers called corona, chromosphere, photosphere, convective zone, radiative zone, and core. All the planets in our solar system can fit in the sun 500 times. The sun is the hottest in the solar system. The temperature off the sun is million 15c. There is 98.0 percent off mass and 2.0 percent off mass.

Our solar system

Our solar system

Our solar system consists of 8 planets, 1 sun, and lots of moon. There are other heavenly bodies like shooting stars, black holes, and meteors. There might be a possibility out in space might be strange things beyond our solar system. Our solar system is in the milky way. There were professionals that have discovered that there are other solar systems. We might be unaware of aliens, unicorns, and mermaids. There might be a possibility of other suns in other solar systems.

The earth is a beautiful world for all boys and girls. This planet has trees, water, and land. It is the only planet that has oxygen. All the other planets in the solar system have no trees, no water, and no oxygen. That's why we can’t survive in the other planets all other planets are too hot and too cold too live on. Some off the planets are made out of gas. That’s why it's so hot.
