Future Aspirations

This Morning at the senior block we had the Future Aspirations come and talk to us , Mr Patterson comes with some people that have been doing well since he meet them.Mr Patternson came to our block to talk about what we wanted to be when we grow up.There were 3 people that came to talk to us, they were Mr Samuels,Paula and Amelia.

First to speak is  Anthony Samuels, did you know that he work and products What Now.Anthony was born in Wellington New Zealand on December 11, 1972. His speak mostly funny because you showed us his old photos of when he was acting in What Now.

Paula was next, he works at Tamaki College, his job is to go around and talking to kids my age and tell them what might they want for a job. Paula told us this story about how he almost died, It was funny and sad at the same time but what cracked me up is that when the teacher marks the roll and when it comes to his name she has same kind of a mothdisess. His quote for today was that if you try stuff you might be good at it but if you don't then you don't know you are good at.

The best quote for the morning is To Miharo Hoki meaning the I can talk back to the teacher but it does not mean I can't be nice to her the next day. This will help me when I go off to college because I will be told what to do and I have to do it with out moaning.Like Michael Jordan didn't make it into his high school basketball team but now he is one of the best players of history.

People who have a long trip.

A study of a human history

The line where the sea and the sky seem to meet

What is the article about?
The article is about 2 wakas going on a long voyage.

Where was the journey to?  Find a map online and draw the journey they took.
They went to Rarotonga,Moorea,Tahiti,Tubuai,Mangareva,Rapanui.

What did they use to navigate their way around?  What technology do we use now to help us navigate? They used the stars at  night and the sea during the day.

Math DLO for week 6

Colour wheel

If you are new to colours then this is the place to be, with me you are going to understand the Primary Colours,Secondary colours and Tertiary colours. The first colour that you will need is thePrimary colours, the primary colours are Yellow, Blue and Red.Primary Colours.png

Now for the Secondary colours, the secondary colors are Violet , Orange and Green.If you don’t know how to  make them, then I am going to show you how to make it. With Orange you need to mix Yellow and Red = Orange. To make Violet you will need to mix Red and Blue = Violet. Last be not least is Green to make Green you have to mix Blue and Yellow  = Green.Secondary colours.png

Tertiary colours are more harder to make, we are mixing Secondary colours and Primary colours together. You have to mix  
Yellow + Orange  YELLOW-ORANG
Blue + Violet = BLUE-VIOLET
Blue + Green = BLUE-GREEN
Yellow + Green = YELLOW-GREEN

How to play Softball

         How to play Softball

Hey if you're new to softball, then I'm going to take you on a  adventure  to show you how to play softball.In this peice of writing I am going to teach you all you need to know  about softball and how to play the game.

A game of softball is similar to baseball,the aim of the game is to get the most points by getting more  runs. What is it you have to do to win you might ask? Well there are many ways to win and is one way you can  win. The most common way  to win is by   stealing bases.The way of stealing bases is when the pitcher pitches to the batter and if he hits it then you can run to second or third.

What you need to play is softball, you will need a softball field, softball bat,softball gloves, a softball ,Apparel,softball Cleats and Protective gear.Like you know this is a team sport, not a solo sport ok,there are 3 bases in a triangle when you hit the ball as far as you can you can run to first base. If you hit it out of the park,you are not out because that is a homerun, “what is a homerun you might ask” Well a home run is when you run over all the bases. Here is the link of a home run
If you need same techniques with pitching or batting, here are some that can  help you in a game.SP.png
Most common fastpitch motion is a windmill technique, where the pitching arm starts in front of your  body and makes a  circle to get  power and speed before the ball is released.


Now here are some techniques of batting, when gripping the bat, the hitter has to push with your  fingers  not with  your palms.

You will need these skills to play softball,you need speed,agility  and strength. With speed you can get to the bases fast if you hit the ball soft.If you have good agility then you can move fast to the ball and good reflexes. If you have good strength then you can get your teams more point by getting home runs.

Ok if you can do all of those things then you will be a very good softball or baseball player. If your don't have these skills then softball is not the game for you, but if you can do all of them the you might be a star player.

   Like all adventures this is come to an end,I hope that my piece of writing has help you understand everything about softball.I will be back with same more writing about sports and how to play them. If you want me to write about something you want to know just comment and I will see if I can do it.

Today we played dodgeball with Miss Tito, we have been learning dodgeball for the last 2 terms now , but this is the last dodgeball game we are going to have.Because next week we are going to learn how to play Kai o Rhi,now back to the game there are eight balls in the middle of the hall. Our feet has to be at the back of the red line or we wont start the game,when the referee blows the whistle you can run and grab the ball.The object of the game is to try and hit the other team with the ball, within the shoulders down. Here is a strategy that  can help you in the game, target the person that you want to get out and throw the ball at the same time.

Our instructors name  was Jackie,did you know that swimming strengthens the heart and lungs and swimming works out all of the body’s major muscles.

Furture Aspirations

Today the whole of team five went into the street for a Future Aspiration talk. Andrew Paterson told us how he got into the radio business. Jason, Zona and Alfred have come to inspire what we want for a career when we grow up.  

Zona  was the best speaker because she told us what she did in primary and intermediate. One of the best things she said were five things that we could use in our lives, and the best one was .five strive to stay alive. She inspired me to  find what I’m good at and go for it, and don’t just  go with your friends and you might not like what they're into and you're just wasting your time.

The job that I want to do is be a engineer, i wanted this job because I like to build stuff and i'm pretty good at maths. Other job that I like was to be a boxer.
