Ski Trip 2020

Kia Ora,

Last week Team Moana went on a Ski Trip to Mt Ruapehu! We did all sorts of things such as; Skiing, Rock Climbing, we even went to the War Museum. Team Moana had so fun! We stayed at Piper's Lodge. Today, my task is to describe what I was doing in one photo. What I liked about this task was, looking through the photos to find one of me. Here is my task. I hope you like it! 

Whoosh! It was Day 2 for skiing. I was about to ski down Happy Valley! That was my friend, Kayla on the right. It was such a lovey day to ski. It was much sunnier than last time we skied. Last time we skied it was wet, rainy, and windy. But, today the sun was shinning.

We were all ready for skiing but first we need to have a group photo before we went skiing. I"m so excited to go skiing! Click, Click! "Say, 'Ski TRIP!" Mrs A shouts. "Ski TRIP!" Team Moana sreams!

Tectonic Plates

 Kia Ora,

Last Friday, Team Moana did a little Science experiment. The Science experiment was about the tectonic plates. We got some wafers, some tomato sauce and a plastic plate. We poured some tomato sauce onto the plate. We snapped a wafer in half and put one on top of the tomato sauce. Then, we put another wafer on the tomato sauce and pushed them together. The wafers were like the tectonic plates moving. We tried moving the wafers past each other against each other, and towards each other. What I learnt in this task was: that there was a tectonic plate moving near Christchurch that is why there are so many earthquakes over there! Here are some photos of the Tectonic plates experiment. 

Measuring Maths

 Kia Ora,

This week we have been working on  measuring. We have done lots of activities related on meauring. We have used one metre rulers to work out some measurements. Today, in our groups we tried to work out our head circumference and how long our feet are. My head circumference was 50cm, and my feet length was 21cm. 

We made a presentation to record our infomation. What I liked about this task was putting my infomation onto a ghraph. Here is my measurement task. I hope you like it.

Lahar- Mt Ruapehu

Kia Ora, 

Today we built Mt Ruapehu in the sandpit. We also made the Whangaehu River valley, the plain below the mountain and the railway bridge at Tangiwai. We wanted to learn how the lahar destroyed the bridge in 1953 causing the Tangiwai Disaster. Kora and Ariana poured lots of water into the crater we had made on top of our mountain. It whoosed down the side of the mountain and into the river valley. The bridge collapsed and bits of our train fell into the river. After that, we watched a short video about what to do  if you are on Mt Ruapehu when the lahar siren sounds.  Now I know how to keep safe from a lahar if one happens when I am on a mountain.  Here is my Hazard Notice with the most important information.

In the last few weeks we have been doing a bird inquiry.  My groups bird was a North Island piopio. It is an extintct bird!

What I learnt in this task was what a North Island Piopio bird eats. It eats insects, spiders, worms, forest fruits, seeds, leaves, mosses and grass. What I liked in this task was: was finding information about the North Island Piopio.

We had to make a presentation showing everything we have found out about our bird. Here is my task I hope you like it.
