How Bees Get Their Stripes

How bees get their stripes?
By: Hinerangi

A few years ago bees were known as fluffy, cuddly honey makers. Bees lived in a huge
wild castle where there lived dinosaurs and loads of brave creatures. Every one of them
loved to talk and make others laugh in many different ways. All the animals are very kind
to one another and loves to go out and hunt for plenty of delicious food.

One sunny and delightful day all the animals besides the bees had setted off on a very
crazy and unknown adventure. During that one specific day the bees had no idea the rest
of the animals had left as the animals sneaked out while they were sleeping. The bees were
very confident and excited about what they were going to do that day, they thought for 10
minutes and came up with a wicked idea, which was not surprising.

The bees played the whole day until they became tired, tired enough they’d fall asleep.
2 hours later. While time had past and hours came the bees were fast asleep in there beds,
they dreamed and dreamed for hours. Suddenly a huge bang which came from the
bedroom door slammed and had woken up all the bees. One of the bees were out of its
bed trying to come up with something to make them look cuter than they already are.

They all got out of there beds and peaked out the door to see what that bee was doing.
“What are you doing”? “I am creating something to make us look even better”, he answered”?
“What are you exactly creating though”? “I am creating a striped jumper which will
make other animals seem that we have now gotten stripes”, “I will be done in a few more
hours”. So the bees went back to bed and fell back to sleep. 4 hours later. The bee was still
working on getting the striped jumpers done, but it was time to take a break and have a little

The bee only got the chance of a 2 hour sleep, but he still continued with making the jumpers.
“How long do I have before breakfast”? The bee continued to make the jumpers without
breakfast in its belly. 3 hours later. The bee was finally finished making the jumpers. He gave
out all the jumpers to every bee who was cold and who were wanting to have stripes. It didn’t
take longer than he thought. So he continued to share the jumpers and made a very excellent
progress on giving them out, they finally finished sharing out all the jumpers and went
straight to lunch.

So this is the story about how bees got their stripes!

Achieving Different Skills:

From towards and on myself and my group will be achieving many different dances as in learning how to perform many of them. My team and I will be looking at how we can be better at dancing, the dances we have chosen are ( ballet, line dancing and a little bit of hip hop ). Earlier on Tuesday team 5 had a very cool performance where everyone except the teachers were apart of. For the past few weeks everyone in room 1 was included of learning how to juggle to perform to the whole team. Our job was to learn how to juggle with 3 balls but first we had to get into pears. Everyone had worked as hard as they could as we only had 2 weeks till the performance and some of us smashed it that afternoon. The group I am now with includes myself, Irene, Ayla, Amelia, Seluone, Terry, Tatiana, Jozlo and Sanne. From what I already know we will be doing a mixture of dancing as our group is the biggest out of the whole class.

Explanation Writing:

The information I am about to tell you is all about the benefits of physical activity. These are some great tips about how we can be better at staying healthy and stronger for the future. Benefits of physical activity is one of the most important things you can do for your health.   

Being physical can help you with tons of things especially because it  helps you with staying healthy. Eating loads of fruit and veggies is 2 of the main things you should be eating everyday as it can help you reduce the risk of having heart disease, high blood pressure and cancers for the future. Everyone should be drinking water as it’s technically what’s making us move around a lot, water is what everyone should be drinking as it’s a 100% healthy drink and is what helps us move around a lot. Be physical, stay safe and eat/drink plenty of veggies, fruit and water.   

Another way of being physical is getting a lot of exercise. Everyone should be doing 30 minutes worth of fitness/exercise per day and drink plenty of water. If you have chosen to do a whole week worth of exercise the amount of time you should be doing is 300 minutes throughout the whole week. Getting this amount of exercise will actually help you lose weight in just in a week. Exercising a lot can help you with staying healthy and it’s what we do everyday after lunch, which is what I kind of enjoy but it does help me a lot.

Last but not least physical activity can help you with how you feel and all the moods you are feeling at the moment. Physical activity can help you with stress, emotion, being angry and much more. This is what helps me a lot when I’m stress, due to physical activity I have been acting a lot weirder than usual but it has never stopped me from finishing my work. Physical activity can help you a lot and is what helps me and my friends actually.  

The elements written in this template is obviously all about the benefits of physical activity. All elements were also based on how it helps the brain and the body. Physical activity is the most important thing to improve your health and reduce all the risks of catching something bad. Physical activity has plenty more of reasons why we should be doing this to improve our health and much more. I really hoped you learned something really great and that you’d try a few of the tips written in this template. Thank you and god bless.

Dangerous Decimals

   Dangerous Decimals
We are learning to identify the relationship between fractions and decimals

NOTE: Before we do this I am not quite sure about the answers I am going
to give but I’m gonna try to give the bestest answer I could give. Hope you
enjoy. Thanks!

What is 1/10 as a decimal? 0.1

What is 4/10 as a decimal? 0.4

What is 1/100 as a decimal? 0.01

What is 9/100 as a decimal? 0.09

What is 1/1000 as a decimal? 0.001

What is 7/1000 as a decimal? 0.007

What is 24/100 as a decimal? 0.24

What is 55/100 as decimal? 0.55

What is 12/10 as a decimal? 1.2

0.5 + 0.3 = 0.8

0.6 + 0.2 = 0.8

0.7 + 0.5 = 1.2

0.3 + 0.2 = 0.5

5/10 + 0.5 = 1

1/10 + 0.4 = 0.5

5/100 + 0.21 = 0.26

Fabulous Fractions: 1

            Fabulous Fractions
WALT: identify the relationship between fractions.

What is 2/4 of 50? 25.

What is ½ of 50? 25.

4/4 of 8 is the same as 2/2 of 4.

What is ⅕ of 10? 2.

What is 2/10 of 10? 2.  

What is ⅓ of 12? 4.

What is 2/6 of 12? 4.

What is 1/13 of 26? 2.

What is 2/26 of 26? 2.

What do you notice about these fractions?
Show your working for the remainder of the problems

I have 2/16 of a cake at a birthday party. I keep going back for more and eat another  
6/16 of a cake. What fraction of a cake have I eaten altogether? 8/16 because 2/16 + 6/16 =

⅓ + ⅔ = For this 1 I only added the 2 top numbers and left the 2 bottom numbers as it is.
Then I got the answer to 3/3
⅙ + 2/6 = As for the same I only added the top numbers and got the answer to 3/6
12/25 + 3/25 = The final answer for these 3 answers are 15/25

I have 5/21 of a cake left over from the party. Then I give 3/21 of a cake to my sisters.
What fraction of a cake do I have left over? 2/21 because 5/21 - 3/21 = 2/21.

½ + 2/4 = First I changed ½ into 2/4 and added both 2/4 which the answer would be 4/4  
3/6 + ⅔ = I chose to change 3/6 into ⅔ and as for this I add both ⅔ and the answer is 4/3
⅕ + 2/10 = First I change the 2/10 into ⅕ and add ⅕ + ⅕ which is ⅖

Team Building Recount

It is that time for the year 7’s, It is time for team building. This is a time for the year 7’s to experience a few leadership opportunities and have jolly fun. There are 3 awesome days ahead of us, ( making slime, cooking, water sports, street games and more ). These 3 days are going to be awesome.      

2 days later…. The final day of team building had begun. I was pumped up and ready to finish it
off properly as it was our final day of team building. There were loads of different teams around me
as we were seated on the ground inside the street. The teachers were about to announce the activities
we were going to do for the day. 5 hours later….. It is time to celebrate and finish the week off with a
boogie along with some music. My day just kept getting crazier and funnier, all team leaders were
selected to list down the people that were there to sort out all the food that was provided for us,
( all food items were provided by Mrs Salu ).

Everyone were extremely excited to get there boogie on and have a bit of a laugh. There were food, drinks and plenty of junk on the day. 20 minutes later……. After having a bit of a feed I was ready
to dance with a few of my friends, I was really happy as we also got a few of the teachers up and
dancing. The teams that challenged each other in all the dance battles we had were, Yellow &
Green, Red & Blue, Purple & Orange. All teams were incredible but unfortunately churry didn’t get
to where we wanted to.

After having our mini dance battles Mrs Salu had given us 25 more minutes to dance
until it was time for our mini prizegiving. For the last 25 minutes Mrs Salu had chosen for
everyone to play musical statues, I could tell everyone was surprised as there were only 4 - 6
people  left in the game. 15 minutes later…. There were only 10 minutes left of dancing. Everyone
slowly got ready for our prizegiving.

All the teachers that were there were really excited to give the prizes out to those who participated
in all events. Our 10 minutes was over and it was time to get ready for our final event which was
our prizegiving. Everyone was seated on the ground and none was talking, It was quieter than usual.
The prizes were about to be handed out and all the scores were about to be announced.

Mrs Salu decided to go from last to 1st, Mrs Salu finally called our group name as we came
5th place, the prizes were boxes of pizza and bags of chocolates as well as lollipops. Team
churry was still proud of ourselves as we did come first in the team chant and 5th overall. After
selecting our prizes team churry and team orange justice decided to share the boxes of pizza and
all the goodies we had on the day.

Overall I enjoyed my week with all the year 7’s and the leftover teachers. I would like to say
thank you to all the teachers and helpers who organised these 3 days and helped us with
everything we needed. It has been an incredible experience and having awesome opportunities
of being a leadership person one day. Thank you to all helpers and teachers, It has been epic with
you all.

Sketchnote 1

Task Description:
This task is all about me solving problems individually using fractions. For me fractions can be quiet hard but after doing this task I have started getting the hang of doing fractions without any help. This problem is asking me to figure out the answer of 1/4 + 1/2, I had answered 3/4 but there are steps in this question as you can see. Fraction is 10% my style but out of all maths equations times table is my favourite. Hope you enjoyed and god bless you.

How can we save money

How can we save money - Hinerangi:)

How can we save money? Why do we have money? What do we use it for? How does it
affect us? Do you have any idea of how to save money? If not, then you’ve come to the right
place on how to save money.

Buy what you need & not what you want:)

One way to save money is  to stop buying things that you entirely do not need,
for example junk food, new clothing, new footwear, new sports gear ( instead of
throwing all your unwanted items away, another way is to actually use your unwanted
things and sell them online.

Items you would need, are small things like School supplies, University supplies
and plenty more. It's always good to buy things you really need but then again it's not,
You are actually spending the money you were meant to be saving up for.

Buy less and sell what you don't need:)

Another way of making money is by selling your unwanted items and buying
less things. This will be a great opportunity for those of you who are very young &
have never experienced this before. The main reason for this is to sell what you don't
need and buying things that are very cheap online, in stores / shops, supermarkets and

Things you wouldn't need should be things like for instance old things
( Lounge supplies, Kitchen supplies, Washroom supplies and much more. If you think
selling the items you wouldn't need is an awesome idea then I definitely think that as well.

Garage Sale:)

Finally, an easy way of making is by having a garage sale. At a garage sale
you could sell things like ( cupcakes, muffins, sausage sizzles, any hot food and  more.
This is a way of making money by selling food items while actually making money.

My Blurb:
This task is actually all about how simple we all can save money. There are very easy and simple ways to save money. Everyone in Room 1 literacy thought of heaps of ideas but what was weird was that we were only aloud to choose 3 subjects to write about this. I really hope yous all enjoyed and It's been really fun showing you all my work I've done for you all to see. Have fun, god bless you all and love yous heaps.

Simple and Compound sentences

My Blurb:

I really hopes yous all enjoyed my presentation about simple and compound sentences. Thank you all and have fun learning all of this I have posted on my blog. Love you all and god bless.

Complex Sentences

My Blurb:
My blurb is all about complex sentences. There are a few examples written inside this presentation which will make your learning a whole lot easier and better to do. This is all about what a complex sentence is and why do we have to yous it in our writing. Did you know that there are actually 3 main type of sentence names called, Compound sentence, Simple sentence and a Complex sentence there also not the same, they may sound the same but I'm telling you know it's not. Thank you for looking at my blog post hope to see yous all again soon. Thank you and god bless.

The Wave 3

The Wave

It had been a wild day. A hot nor - westerly airstream had sent
angry grey clouds scudding across the sky and had whipped the
surf up into a fury. From the wooden deck that ran along the front
of the beach house, Paul watched the surfers carving up the feral
tubes out the back, pulling out before the waves peaked and
crashed down upon them. He wished he could be part of the
action, but his mother refused to buy him a surfboard until he
was older. ‘The sea can be a cruel master’, she always said.

Paul was mesmerised by the ocean. From his vantage point, high
up in the sand dunes, he was in awe of the way that it stretched
out before him; the power that came rolling in from so far away in
such a rhythmic fashion, untameable, unstoppable, never-ending,
swell after swell. The sun was descending quickly towards the
horizon, but the heat of the day still lingered, sticky and
oppressive. Time for one last swim before his parents arrived

His mind made up, he sprang into action, jumping off the deck
and hurtling down the sand dunes. It was always a challenge to
stay upright, fighting the momentum of the downward journey
combined with the shifting surface beneath his feet. Down on the
beach now, he ploughed through the soft sand, finally gaining a
sure foothold as the sand got harder, racing into the shallows with
the water spraying up all around him. He plunged on, knee deep,
waist deep, looking for the perfect moment to dive in.

Surprised by the ferocity of the waves, he was suddenly confronted
by a huge wall of water that reared up, towering over him,
gathering its force to smash him into the beach. He dived into the
blue-green wall, escaping the rage of the broken white water.
But this wave had a twist in its tail. He felt an obscene strength
driving him backwards and down into the sea floor. It held him in a
merciless grip, rolling, tumbling and twisting him. He fought
desperately for the surface, his lungs bursting. With a final surge,
the wave spewed him out into the shallows, and, its force spent,
lazily retreated.

Some things to ponder

Story structure
Setting: Where does the story take place?
The Beach house and The Beach:
Characters: Who are the characters in the story?
Paul, Paul’s mother, The waves:
Problem: What is the problem in the story
Paul was so determined to go in
the water so he decided to dive
into the water without a surfboard,
suddenly a humongous wave
came along driving Paul
backwards and down onto the
sea floor. He ended up rolling,
tumbling and twisting in the
water as well as his lungs bursting
for air.
Feelings: How do the main characters feel about the problem?
Paul was feeling very anxious and
scared, as well as upset as he
wasn't aloud to go for a swim / a
surf. Paul was not feeling very
well afterhis dive in the water.
Action: What action do the characters take?
The action was Paul´s dive
in the water. He was feeling
shocked as he got washed away
from land. Paul was so frightened
after his swim.   
Outcome: How did the story end?
The wave had spewed Paul out
into the shallows and his force
spent lazily retreated.
Themes: Is there a lesson in the story?
The lesson to this story is…
People like Paul should always
listen to their parents or any adult
in your family. Reasons are… you
can end up just like Paul or you
could be caught up in an accident.

Follow up

Our next follow up we had to do was to design our own swimsuit or some apparatus that
would help Paul control himself while swimming out to the ocean. Our final follow up was
actually a challenge. It was a very hard challenge as we had to write upto 20 - 30 sentences
about what might happen next during this storybyte. Take a look at what I’ve done individual.   

As Paul washed out to sea his mother had finally noticed that her son was missing
she tried extremely hard searching for him. She searched for hours and minutes until
the time had came, she had finally found his son washed out to sea. She quickly ran to
find help ( sea rescuers ) for them to paddle out to sea and grab him. As soon as the
rescuers caught up to the person under sea they had noticed it wasn’t Paul, It was just
a floaty with the same colors of what Paul’s clothing looked like. The mother gasped
and cried for a very long time, the rescuers were very sad to see Paul’s mother upset.
The next day as Paul was still missing the mother quickly stood up and started
searching for her son. Her son was nowhere to be found, she went to everyone’s
house near by the beach. She searched for hours and looked in every single house,
luckily there was only one house to be looked at. Quietly appearing into the house she
had found him lying upon a very hard and springy bed sleeping with 3 little ducklings,
the mother had burst into tears with a humongous smile on her face, she had hugged
him while he was still sleeping. She felt amazed, excited and determined to take her
son home. She had said to Paul, “I will never let you out of sight ever again” I will protect
you till the time when I leave this world/Planet. She had finally realized that he wasn’t
missing after all, He just went for a very quick swim and had found shelter closer to
where he was sleeping, everyone was so relieved and amazed about that. I wonder
what will happen next? Do you have any Ideas of what might happen?   

My Blurb:
     For this task we had to do a task called The Wave 3. It was a task all about characters and
the waves. I was told to write a 20 - 30 sentence which is why there is so much words
written above this blurb I've written. As I did this task I was told to read every single
paragraph and answer all the questions written in the timetable square boxes. I really
hope yous enjoyed my mini blurb hope to see yous all soon. Thank you and god bless
