Predators or native

I strongly agree that  predators most like rabbits , cats,ferret and possum should have respect :).The reason so even though their fine but we  treat predators the way they are.But not letting them taking a native animal,just giving  facts that there are over  more possums like 30 millions just giving facts.Some people have disagree to respect cause they want to get rid of them in 2050.But I agree to just leave respect for them not letting them to kill native like just treat them respect.

What could go wrong in 2048

This is my view what will NZ look like in the future,like in 2048?you never know what is 2048 looks like.Maybe they’ll start the past again and turn over like slavery and other bad things.

What could go wrong?It will happen and start with the environment,the environment has lots of cautions.It will never turn out good,there will be a drought and everyone will be trusting.Or maybe pollutions they can weck our grass and trees that can count to no trees maybe other bad habits.

 This could be a bad view of it? This can go wrong,there’s bad habits as well- .Slavery can start over again do you like slavery to start? If not good,you never know that your view will be run by gangsters even your house is over taking by them.There might be a global warming cause of all of this mess or might be a flood,it can over take your country maybe.

 Let’s take a view at the happy future?well the happy future is so clean,there will be hover cars,bikes and motors.What about robots?you might have robots as slaves that can clean for you or maybe a robot teacher that can teach you everything. We might have a new government that can treat us right better than DT l: ).

 How is it we can do ? for the environment we can be a tidy kiwi if we want a nice positive future we need to treat the environment right to have a positive future.So what will you think what is 2048 is going to be?.It might be cool to have hover bikes.And that we will have no start of slavery or gangs,we will even never start slavery why would we.

 So if you have a view like 2048 you can think about what will happen in 2048.Have a think maybe you might have gangs in your view of 2048.Maybe not or kinda,or the positive future is to have a free rage gangs that means no gangs at all.So have a think about 2048 what could go wrong.

Kapa Haka 2013

Since 2013 it was april the 1st and I was 6 years old  I was in room 6.Things change over the past years but this is important because I like to remember the past so I like to write  this story so this is the start.

P,H,E Sustaining Ourselves: Hauora

Milky Way

History of Milky way:
Since 1923 a  man Frank C was first man to make  milky way.The name of the milky way  taste has taken form from famed malted milk drink
.The name was name after the earth's galaxy milky way.

The smell of the milky way smell like milk it has a wonderful smell.The look is When you open the chocolate it show you something inside the chocolate.
It has caramel flavor and chocolate down the bottom.It’s cover by chocolate milk and in front of the pack it show you the caramel.
The taste it’s so wonderful it taste like a mixed of the flavors  caramel and chocolate.When you start to feel to put it in your mouth you start to feel to have more the milky way gets into your teeths and when the milky way start to dissolve in your teeth or less melt.

The time  you put that chocolate in your mouth you start to feel more beg for more.
The real reason to beg for more is the looking you have to look at the pack first before you open the rapper you need to smell the chocolate.
I will bet you will just eat it instead of smelling it.

Hazel T1W8 - PS4 word problem

WALT: I illustrate how we solved each problem.

T1W6 word problem9

 WALT: I illustrate how we solved each problem.

Hazel Because I Said So?

  I think we should be mix cause you never know.That the boys will charge and not cause trouble or drama and be cheeky to each other because it’s wrong to treat girls like a boy cause that is not how it work you treat girls like a sister.And if the boys ask for help nicely we will help them with their work and learn to share in school and know a lot about them about learning and favourite things about school.

Hazel Why do we still need libraries

Why do we still need libraries?

Libraries have been around for 5,000 years and they are still serving the community today. While many are starting to question the usefulness of libraries as internet access increases around the world, the library is still an important community resource. Libraries contain information that helps a number of different people, they host educational classes and they are good for the environment.

Libraries contain information that is extremely helpful. They contain masses of books, articles, media and even e-books that the public can access for free. While some of this information can be found online, librarians are experts at finding information and the right books and articles. For example, librarians help doctors to find books about different diseases so that they can save lives. The library has so many books you are guaranteed to find one that suits your needs and the librarians will be there to help you to find it efficiently.

Libraries serve the community. Libraries do whatever they can to support different members of the community. For example, they provide free read-aloud sessions for young children and a range of classes for adults like computing and support for job applications. This means that libraries are helpful for all members of the community; from babies to the elderly. The library is still a great place to enjoy a book, but it provides so much more for the community than many people realise.

Libraries are good for the environment. This is because they purchase a limited number of items that many people can share. For example, people can borrow DVDs, magazines, and books rather than every person having to buy his or her own copy. Likewise, people can use shared computers, photocopiers, and even meeting rooms. This reduces the amount of waste that these people would create if they brought their own. It also promotes the idea of reusing or reselling items rather than throwing them away. As such, the library is a great example of an environmentally friendly establishment.

In conclusion, the library is a community hub that supports a range of people young and old. The library supports people to access information, to attend educational classes and promotes environmentally friendly practices such as reuse, reduce, recycle.

Should we even need uniforms ?

I believe that school uniform is good for schools.  people will know what school we are in when they see our uniform .And the parents will buy the uniform from the school that the parents have decided But some have higher price that still good for the kids to been in.Because the students need uniforms to representing our school.Uniforms are there to representing your school to show the way of your school.The uniform are not there for other outside things like going shopping or eating over it or maybe painting.And the uniforms are for your teacher to find you so that can call you to come over if you were not wearing your uniform you will be left behind alone.

Hazel Word Problem

WALT: I illustrate how we solved each problem.

Chocolate Challenge: PICNIC!

We are learning to justify our ideas.

Picnic is the healthiest chocolate in the world. Picnic is a type of chocolate bar consisting of milk chocolate and peanuts covering chewy nougat caramel biscuit and puffed rice. Picnic bars are lumpy in shape and they have the least amount of sugar! It is a healthy bar and will save you from having diabetes.

It's the only Bar that has peanuts in it!
Picnic is the only bar with healthy  peanuts. That's why Picnic is the best. It has less fat Picnic is the best because its a bar with rice krispies and it has lots of different ingredients 

Picnic has a popular slogan, released in the early 2000s, was "Deliciously ugly". During the 1970s the Australian slogan for Picnic was "More like a banquet than a picnic". Picnic is manufactured by Cadbury UK

Our competition
On the outside of a Moro bar it has hard chocolate but in the inside of the bar it is soft with caramel and it is made in New zealand and also Australia. We will stop people from buying moro by telling them they have a lot of fat and sugar. 

Crunchy is my least favorite because it is the hard and it has lots of chocolate and I think it's the less healthiest on this list

Sorry I Forgot about those Week Activity but I manged to finish them all in 2 days.I'm on week 3 2 to last. Wish me luck

Week One: In the Beginning (1800-1870)

Activity 1: A House or a Home?

In the 1800s, most Māori lived in villages called pa. Each village had many buildings – kauta where people cooked, pataka where they stored goods and wharepuni where the Māori slept. A traditional wharepuni had a thatched roof and walls made of timber, fern, rushes and bark. Look at the picture below of a traditional wharepuni. Does it look like your house?

On your blog, compare the wharepuni to your own home. What are two similarities and two differences between a wharepuni and your house? It have bicks color is brown and Orange.The roof have great  design on the roof the house.We've move in this house like long ago 12 or 13 have a great view of the park the park is call:Trauma Reserve.

Activity 2: The Rules of Engagement
During the early years in New Zealand, men and women would often marry at a young age. Women were expected to have babies and remain in the home caring for their children. Few, if any, left home in search of work. Men, on the other hand, were expected to work outside of the home.

These days, we don’t have the same strict expectations about work. Girls and boys can choose their own path in life. In fact, I was lucky enough to go to university and to follow my dream of becoming a teacher!

What is your dream job? Draw a picture of yourself doing your dream job and post it on your blog. You could be a doctor, an actor or even a zookeeper! I have drawn myself taking a picture of a beautiful castle in Poland because I would love to become a travel blogger and photographer one day.

Back in the 1800s, most Māori ate a simple diet. They ate foods that they could catch in the water (eg. fish) or grow on the land (eg. kumara). They did not have access to a supermarket to buy food for their meals! Speaking of meals, what is your favourite meal? Mine is wood-fired pizza. Yum!

On your blog, post a picture of your favourite meal. Be sure to tell us what it is and why it is your favourite. You could also include the recipe if you have it so that we can all try it!
My Favourite is lasagna and rice.

In the 1800s, most families were pretty big. In fact, many parents had an average of seven to nine children.  Imagine that you were a child in the 1800s and you had nine siblings.

On your blog, please tell us how you would feel. Would you enjoy being a member of such a large family? Why or why not?
yes i love a huge family but not that much.I love to joy the member of the family cause the family seem ok cause i can go to other sibling to play with them.

victorian family.jpg

Activity 2: Acknowledging Ancestry
All of us are members of a family. Some of us have large families and some of us have very small families. When I have the opportunity to talk about my family and my ancestry I sometimes choose to use a pepeha. It is a very special way of identifying who I am and where I come from. There are many different versions of pepeha but most provide people with information about who you are and where you come from (i.e. your whakapapa). Use the template provided below to prepare your own unique pepeha. If you need help please watch this short movie clip on preparing a pepeha.

Ko Tapuaenuku maunga   
Ko pūao te awa         
Ko hetimana te waka
Ko Makianu Nooroa tōku tīpuna
Ko Auckland  tōku iwi          
Ko 1, Bagnall,Ave tōku marae
Ko New Zealand ahau
Ko Hemi rāua ko Templeōku mātua  My parents are
Ko Hazel tōku ingoa.

Everyone’s family is unique. What makes your family special? Choose three people close to you and ask them what their two favourite things to do in summer are.

On your blog, write two fun facts about each person. For example, my Nana plays the
We had  have lots new coming events we had lots of fun like Strawberry picking.
We had selfie me and my sisters and brother the selfie is all about strawberry picking look at all of this selfie i took and my mum.

Activity 1: The Waiata - A Song in Your Heart
In the past, Māori would often use song as a way of sharing information or communicating emotions.  A waiata is the name given to a traditional Māori song. One of my all-time favourite waiata is Kia Paimarie. What about you?

Use Google to research traditional Māori Waiata. Listen to a number of Waiata and read the lyrics. On your blog tell us which one of the waiata you found you like the most. Why do you like it?  Poi E  I found it's good it's like  Introduce yourself to the people and god.

Hundreds of years ago, young Māori children were taught to play a number of games, including Poi Rakau, Ki O Rahi, Koruru Taonga and Poi Toa. Read about each of these four games on the Rangatahi tu Rangatira website. Have you played any of them before? Isn’t it cool how the games have been passed down for generations?

Choose one game, and on your blog, tell us the (i) name of the game, (ii) the goal or purpose of the game, and (iii) two rules. Ki O Rahi: Te Ao,Te Ara,Te Marama is the outside.Pawero/Te Motu is the yellow circle,Te Roto is the big blue circle,Te Wairua is the small circle,Tapaparoa,Kahaaraiti,kaharranui is the marking.

You could try playing some of the games with a friend.

In New Zealand, a huge festival is held every two years, called Te Matatini. This performing arts festival celebrates the tikanga (culture or customs) of Māori. Kapa Haka groups from around New Zealand are invited to attend the festival and each group gives a 25-minute performance. The performances are judged and the best teams win prizes.

The gold medal winning team from this year (2017) was Te Kapa Haka o Whāngārā Mai Tawhiti.

Watch these three clips from previous Te Matatini festivals.

3. Te Iti Kahurangi

2.  Te Puku o Te Ika

Day 5: The Dawn of a New Era…
From the 1840s onwards, many European settlers came to live in New Zealand. It was a difficult period in New Zealand’s history. As the settlers began to outnumber the Māori, a great war erupted between the two groups as they fought for access to land to build homes and establish communities.

Unlike the Māori, many of the European settlers didn’t speak Te Reo Māori. Instead, they spoke English. As you can imagine, it was very difficult for the two groups to communicate because they did not have a dictionary or a translator. These days we are able to use the Internet to translate words and phrases from one language to another.

Use Google Translate to translate the following five phrases from English to Te Reo Māori or from Te Reo Māori to English. Post the translations on your blog. Be sure to include the phrase in both the English and Māori to earn full points.


  1. Nau mai ki Aotearoa.  Welcome to New Zealand
  2. ____ is my name. Ko toku ingoa
  3. What is your name? He aha  ingoa
  4. He pai taku ki te takaro i te whutupaoro. I like to play Rugby
  5. Where do you come from? No hea Koe

Activity 2: The Treaty of Waitangi
On 6 February 1840, a very special document was signed by the Māori chiefs and the British settlers in New Zealand. It was called the Treaty of Waitangi (Te Tiriti o Waitangi) and it outlined how the two groups would live together and work together in New Zealand. It was the first document of its kind to be signed in the entire world. The Treaty was signed in a place called Waitangi in northern New Zealand.

Follow this Waitangi village link to read about the village of Waitangi.

On your blog, tell us three fun things that you can do as a visitor in Waitangi. Which one would you like to do the most?
  1. You can take a tour along the Waitangi River.
  2. Maori is History.

After the Treaty of Waitangi was signed, New Zealand became a British colony. Many other countries in the world are also British colonies including Canada, South Africa, Australia, India and Malaysia. As a group they were, and still are, called the ‘Commonwealth’ countries. Years ago, a man named Melville Marks Robinson was asked to organize a sporting competition for people living in the Commonwealth countries. It is called the Commonwealth Games. The first ever event took place in Hamilton, Canada in 1930.

Athletes from New Zealand have competed in the Commonwealth Games for years. In the most recent Commonwealth Games event in Glasgow, Scotland New Zealand athletes won a total of 45 medals. The next Commonwealth Games will be held in 2018 in the Gold Coast, Australia. Hundreds of athletes are competing for the chance to represent NZ at the games (to 'Earn the Fern').

One of New Zealand’s gold-medal-winning Commonwealth athletes was a man named Bill Kini. Bill won a gold medal at the 1966 Commonwealth Games for being the best heavyweight boxer. He was a man of many talents! He played rugby in Ōtāhuhu in the 1960s and later moved to Whangarei.

Imagine that you could interview Bill. What would you ask him about his time at the 1966 Commonwealth Games. What would you want to know? I’d like to know how he had time to train for two sports at once.

On your blog, write four questions that you would ask Bill Kini.
How long did it took him to train?
How many Gold Medals did you won?
How many years you train?
Do you work hard?ManageActivity
