Attitude talk

Today, Jannah, a worker from Attitude, came to talk to us about friendship. She talked to us about different friendships, what can ruin a friendship, and much more. Lets start things of with what she started with, different friendships.

When she came in, she talked to us about different friendships, which were Girl Girl friendships, Boy Boy friendships, and Girl Boy friendships. Then she talked to us about what can ruin a friendship, which is mean humor, Back stabbing, Smothering, and more.

It was fun to listen to what she had to say, because some of the things she said, have effected me through my life. I hope she comes again, so she can talk more about friendships. We love you Attitude!

The Doll's House and King Street Bridge Review

Hi, my name is Caleb. In this text, I will tell you about what happens in the two texts, and and compare it to the modern day, where things have changed a lot.

In the text, The Doll’s House, the problem is that kids and their parents judge people on how much status they have. For example, in The Doll’s House, all the other kids exclude the Little Kelvey's because there status is low. There mum is poor, and they wear the clothes that their mum gets that other families don’t want. There dad is also missing, and some people think he is in jail. Because of all this, the other kids act like they don’t exist because of something they can’t control.

In the text, King Street Bridge, the problem is that some kids aren’t getting enough attention, so they are bullying someone else to get attention. For example, in King Street Bridge, Rebecca and Lyza bully a girl called Hera, who I presume is not to popular so they get all the attention. The way they bully her is by following her on the way home, and then scaring her. I think they are doing this because they don’t get enough attention at home.

Now, if I compared both of these to the modern day, there is a huge difference, first of all, people don’t care about each others status, and instead focus on people being kind. For example, a kid who is really kind, will most likely have a lot of friends, where as people who are naughty, won’t have very many friends. Another thing is bullying. There is still a lot of bullying, but it is now easier to control it, because there are always teachers around.

That is all I have to say. If you enjoyed, then please leave a comment on your thoughts. Until next time, see ya!

What my class thinks about me

Hello, and welcome to my blog. In this blog post, I will tell you about what we did today with the paper in the photo above. Today, my teacher, Mrs Stone, told us to choose a colored pencil and paper. At first I didn't know why we had to do that, but after we all had a pencil and paper, Mrs Stone told us we had to pass our paper around, and the person next to us would write something nice about us. For example, I was sitting next to Leonidas and Kohatu. When Mrs Stone said to start, Kohatu passed his paper to me, I passed my paper to Leonidas, and Leonidas passed his paper to someone else. My paper got passed through about 30 people, and this is what it ended up like.

Should Facebook be more vigilant in checking that users are over the age of 13?

Should Facebook be more vigilant in checking that users are over the age of 13?

I think that facebook should be banned for users under the age of 13 because there are a lot of bad influential content that is not suitable for younger users. I think that facebook is really stepping up their game as they have upgraded their policy. So that if an account with a under-aged user is found facebook must be provided with information that shows their over 13. I also think that under-aged kids should be banned because they haven’t really experienced the world of social activities and more, by also saying that I mean that under-aged kids might accept friend requests from strangers and might get themselves into trouble.

Bethan: There are people on the world wide web who aren’t really the most responsible, and because they can’t target adults who are smarter than children, they target children. Children don’t know what to do so they do what there instincts tell them, their instincts aren’t always right, and the adults can’t always monitor us.

Tehillah:I personally believe that children under the age of 13 shouldn’t have a facebook account. Kids that are 12 and under don’t know what happens when you meet people that you don’t know. They haven’t experience what social media is like. They are to young. There are many adult or hackers in the world that are aiming at younger kids. Social media haves strange people that are hiding behind screens kids don’t know who there meeting or what there meeting. If kids add people that they don’t know they are adding them to there social media life. Parents aren’t there to supervision their children 24/7.

Caleb: I think that people under 13 should not be able to log into facebook. People that are under 13 are less responsible, meaning that if they log onto Facebook, they are likely to do something like share something inappropriate or write something mean towards someone, which might get them or their parents in trouble. A way to counter this happening might make them to have to sign in every time you go on, or maybe you had to take a screenshot of your face, and if you are under 13, you get kicked of. I also think that Facebook is for adults, and some of the content that is on Facebook might be inappropriate for young people. I also think that there should be a password that can be whatever a parent wants, and that they should not tell kids the password. People should also be careful when adding people as friends on Facebook. For all you know, you could add someone who is a mass murderer. There should be a form that tells you about them, so you can see if you want to add them or not.
Nasibah: I think it’s better to have an account to any social media website when your at least 16. Children under the age of 13 are immature. Cause some content are a little bit rude. And kids do need to know what they can share and not share, and some things online can be used to hack other people.

Polyfest Reflection 2019

Have you ever heard of, or been to polyfest? Polyfest is a famous cultural event in NZ that is on for 4 days every year, and has been going on for 44 years. Polyfest offers a range of activities, performances, food stalls, and more.

Polyfest schools day is on the first day of polyfest, and let's schools come in and see performances. It also lets them do stuff like dance with people, and learn about things like fire safety. There are also a variety of stands and shops that have food and toys in them.`

Some of my highlights of polyfest were the Kapa Haka, which was amazing and was one of the only shows that we saw. Another highlight was playing all the games like Big Connect 4, Big Knorts and Crosses, and throw the ball in the bucket, we spent up to 20-30 minutes of our free time there.

Overall, polyfest is amazing and I definitely want to go there again.

Circle of flame

As the fire went off, John ran through the house, trying to find the fire, and hopefully put it out. As he ran through his house, a bookshelf fell down on him, pushing him against the floor. The pain rised through his chest, but he managed to get it of him. He carried on running, now feeling like he could collapse to the ground, and never get up, but he didn't give up. As he reached the door, he slammed it open, and then his jaws dropped. Right in front of him, he saw a circle of flame. Behind him, he heard a crash, and then a number of thuds. John thought it was more fire, stopping him from exiting, but then he realized that it was 4 firemen, with big hose. John moved out of the way, and the firemen ran into the room, and the front one started firing the hose at the fire. Instead of going out like normal fire, this one shoot towards the firemen, and pulled him in the fire, killing him instantly. One of the firemen said "come on, lets get out of here" and John follow him out of his burning house. Once they got outside, they heard the noise of one of the firemen screaming. "I'll go up and see whats wrong, you stay here" said the firemen said he walked back into the house. To shocked to speak, John walked back. Then, a few seconds later, the sound of screaming erupted the house again, and then the firemen came to the front of the house and shouted, "run, stay back, this house is not sa-- aaaaaaaah". He screeched as the hole house set ablaze, and then got destroyed. The firemen, screeched, and the bottom part of his body was on fire. Johns house was destroyed, he was stuck, looking at his burnt house, and then turned away, and started walking away.

A Special Place

Hello, my name is Caleb, and in this writing I am going to be explaining about a special place. There are many special places in our community, however, I could only choose one. And that place is my school, Pt England.

There are so many good things about Pt England, I don’t know where to start, so how about I start by saying about what we do at Pt England. Pt England has over 650 students in our school. We also have 27 classrooms, with 1 or 2 teachers in each of them. Our school goes from years 1-8, which means you get to be at primary and intermediate here.

Every day, when the bell rings at 8:30am (for the year 7-8) or 8:50 (for the year 1-6), the kids come into class and start to learn. When the clock hits 11:00am, the kids get a break for eating, and playing. When the bell rings at 11;30am, the kids go back to class, and wait for their teacher to let them in for more learning. Then at 1:00pm, kids get another break for lunch and play. Then, at 2:00pm, another bell rings and the kids come back inside the classroom. At 3:00pm, when the bell rings, the school day ends.

We don’t just do the same thing every day, for 6 hours long, because that would be boring. Sometimes, we go on trips to places like the Zoo, Motat, the Museum, and so many more. Once every 2 years, we do this thing called Fiafia. Before fiafia, we practice a item that we choose. For example, when we write down what we want, and someone chooses Jump Jam first, then most likely, they will get Jump Jam. If they don’t get Jump Jam, they’ll probably get there 2nd or 3rd choice. We have to practice our item for nearly a whole term, and then near the end of the term, at night, we show our item. It really is marvellous.

Another reason I like our school is because we are really close to some other places, like Pt England Beach, and the GI pools. And that is really cool. One time a year, we visit the Beach for a whole day for a picnic. We also go to the pools for a few weeks a year, for swimming lessons.

There are also a tone of awesome things in our school to. A few years ago, they added a bike track, that goes around the playgrounds, around the field, and back. We can only ride the bikes if we have a certain ticket for bike riding, which is given to kids who are behaving and want one. As mentioned earlier, we also have two playgrounds, and two huge fields. They are really fun to play on.

There are so many more things I would like to add, but because of time, I could only write this much. From learning, to fiafia, these are some of the things that I really like about our school.I hope you found this information let you know a bit about our school. Bye.
