2014 communicatetion

                       How we communicate in 2014

Over the past weeks Mrs Cameron gave us a task. It was about communication in the past. We had to go in a group of four and we would be given a year, our year was 2014. We had to show people how we communicate in 2014 and my group also created a timeline about communications apps, and when they were invented. We also got given packs of information - we watch videos, books and we searched for information.

Here is the link to the document - Timeline
And here is out script - Script

The three little pigs

Over the last two weeks we have been asked to write a story about a fairy tale but we had change it a bit to show persuasive writing. I chose the three little pigs and when we printed off the story we had to draw one of the main people in the story so I drew the Big Bad Wolf.

The Three Little Pigs.                          

Once upon a time there was a big wolf and he had a pet mouse called Larry. Larry was a cute puppy and one day Larry ran away. When I was wondering where Larry might of ran, I looked out the window and saw my neighbour's house. So I walked to my first  neighbours house.. The pig who lived there was called Bob and I ask if he could come inside to look.. Bob said ‘No’ because of my  history with pigs. I was not going to give up that easily so I ran into the door. The house was made out of straw so it flew down and I walk in and found Bod lying beside the fire cooking.   

I thought about what should I do with a dead pig. My mummy said not to waste food.  I thought I might as well have some bacon for dinner.  I walked away still wondering where Larry went I was thinking about his big cute eyes and I said to myself, ”I am not giving  up.”

I went to the next neighbours house and in this house was a pig called Jade.. I walked to the door and asked if I could come in and Jade said ‘’No’’ with my history with pigs I ran into the door thinking it would fall but it didn’t so I walked away with a little smile.  All of a sudden BANG! The house blew up and I walked in looking for Larry and I saw Jade lying there all burnt and he thought to myself my mummy always said not to waste food so I thought I might have some ham for dinner so I ate Jade.

The next neighbour's was the smartest in town and she built her house out of bricks her name is Charlotte. I knocked on the door and asked if I could come in and look for Larry and let me guess she said ‘’no’’ because of my history with pigs so I thought how could I get in. I can't blow it down I have run out of bombs, what should I do? So I thought what about climbing in the window. I try that and I sneak around and look for a window. I found one and I see Larry eating the chicken inside and when Larry sees me he runs to me and licks my face and all of a sudden AAH!! Charlotte yells out for help and she is running around the house yelling for help. I run away when she bangs her head on the stove in her house . I had roast pork and I gave some to Larry.  

The next thing I know it there are cops outside so I fake death, when they come in they see me and leave. I decide to wake up when they leave and when I read the newspaper the next day it says that the big wolf has died and they put in a whole different story that's fake cause they think that a wolf that’s looking for his pet puppy is rubbish so that’s the real story.

The Tempest

The Tempest

This term we have been doing the tempest and for homework we had to make a conversation with Prospero and Caliban. We could chose what it could be about and this is my conversation.

‘’Finally peace and quiet,’’ said Prospero as he walk to the chair.
‘’Master,’’ said Caliban as he slowly crawled out of his cave.
‘’Shh,’’ yelled Prospero. He raised his staff warning CalIban.
‘’But master you said that you will let me free after I do this job and have finished,’’ said Caliban in a scared voice.
‘’No you ungrateful creature,’’ yelled Prospero as he walked to Caliban.
‘’But master,’’ said Caliban ‘’It’s is not fair.’’ He backed away from Prospero.
‘’Hush now don't forget that your mother had you cage up for years and I was the one who let you free,’’ he yelled with temper.
‘’But master.’’ He back away even more.
‘’I have ask you to be quiet and you are not so you shall pay,’’ he raises his staff and...
‘’You shall turn into a monster,’’ yelled Prospero.
‘’No,’’ yelled Caliban as he turned into a yucky sinky monster.
‘’Now get to work.’’yelled Prospero as he walked back to his chair.
‘’NO THIS IS NOT FAIR,’’moaned Caliban then he ran away and he was never to be seen ever again

Our field trip

On Tuesday we went to the Tukituki River and the Karamu stream. We had to do lots things like measuring temperature, how fast it was flowing, width and depth. We had to find Macroinvertebrates and much much more. At the Tukituki River, me, Pare, Charlotte and Ruby found the heaps of Macroinvertebrates. 
And we had so much fun!!.I learnt that if you have a little bit a algae that is good because the macroinvertebrates eat that bit but if it was thick they would not eat it all and the river dies.

Camp gone wrong

Camp gone wrong

While me and Harriet were tramping up to sunrise hut we were at the back of the class.When we were we walking we saw a baby wild piglet, it was right down the cliff so me and Harriet went to touch it and we slipped down the steep, rocky cliff.

So the story begins...

Where am I, where is the class, most importantly where am I. I look to my side and see Harriet I said to myself at least I still have Harriet, we make a great team. Now I say to myself lets find a shelter.

Let’s use a map of the forest,track where we were before and find where you are now.There we are right in the middle of nowhere, no one will ever find us now.Now let’s find the nearest track and the closest way out.Don’t let that little baby pig distract you. Let’s focus on finding a tree to rest in and sleep in for the night.

So I ask Harriet ‘’what about this tree it’s high and it looks like it has good shelter’’ she said ’’it does look like great shelter’’.I said ’’I will set off to look for some wood and can you find some big leaves.Then we meet I have got some sticks, strong thick sticks.’’Harriet have you got big leaves’’ I say and she said’’yep’’so I bring them back.‘’It’s getting dark’’I said, ‘’we better hurry back’’. Harriet said ‘’We better get started then’’.We start to yell out’’Help, help is anybody out there please help us we really need your help, Harriet and I are starving out here.

I say ’’look at this tree it is high and it looks like good shelter We just need to add some sticks that I have got and then find some sticky sap and stick the leaves together for a blanket. I  will climb this tree first but I can’t climb it, it to hard because it is to thick. I say to Harriet, “ill you get my rope,it’s in my bag. Harriet throws it up and it lands on a strong branch. I climb and while I am climbing I can hear some cracking it sounds like a branch but where, where could it be. As I slowly look up the crack is getting louder as soon as I look I can see the branch I am using and it is breaking. So I go back as fast as I can and yell ‘’the branch is breaking’’but it is too late I fall to the depths of the forest, and it seems as if everything is in slow motion. I hear a faint yell of Harriet saying ’’GEORGIA’’...
Don’t quit on me’’.Your bag where is the bag there it is, is there a first aid kit theres gotta be a first aid kit I pull out a Rope, two Rain coats, Pocket Knife, Water and food, Whistle, Map of the Ruahine Forest and there it is a First aid kit.I wake up I see Big and bold beech trees, Turquoise blue rivers, Tues and fantails chirping a song, the moss eating the forest floor, The squishy mud swamp traverse up the hill then I start to go sleepy very sleepy I yell out help ,help help ,help ,help ,help... but no one could hear not even harriet…

As I wake up I look to my leg it is tattered and torn with a bandage around it but where's Harriet I look up she is in a smaller tree much easier to climb.I try to yell out to Harriet she looks at me and says ‘‘Georgia is that you I it is,guess what I used the leaves and some berries I put the leaves on the top of the tree and put the berries on them spelling SOS and it look like there is something coming in the dictines I also think the class has called a search party were getting out of here.

I stand up with some sticks I used as crunchies and say ‘’what’s that growling sound it’s sounds like it is there ‘’I can hear it to, try to come up here’’ ‘’but I can’t’’
‘’is the plane here yet’’ ‘’very close’’’ ‘’Harriet I am scared’’ guess what the plane is here it is landing down there down a step, step step clife.’’I will take that risk’’ ‘’ no Georgia you will hurt your self’’ ‘’to late CANNIBAL!!!!’’ ‘’later Harriet comes down she is riding one of the big leaves she got.We meet we walk to the plane and ask for a ride back he says ‘’ticket please’’ ‘’but we don't have a ticket we are stranded please let us in’’ ‘’sorry ladies not this time’’.

Later we see a big group of people running to the plane with tickets we said ‘’where did you come from’’ ‘’down there man follow the track’’ ‘’so we set off  Harriet says my crunchies are still fresh do you want one ‘’no I am fine thanks I wouldn't even be able to hold it ‘’wait a minute what's in you bag what’s that glowing’’ ‘’ I forgot I have the MUSIC MAKER 1000!!!! ‘’dont yell Georgia‘’ ‘’now Harriet get my music maker thanks now  do your magic♪♫♪♫♫♩♬♪ there plane tickets lets go’’ ‘’we make just in time her are our tickets’’ ‘’Harriet were going home’’ ‘’YAY says Harriet’’.Then I say ‘’Harriet you were a good friend thank you so much for everything’’.

Camp Moment

5th March 2014

I.A.L.T Create a short recount that captures a camp moment and interests a reader.

Georgia Maidens - Camp Concert.

On Tuesday our class went to Camp Wakarara and on Wednesday night we had a camp concert.When it was our turn, I was really nervous, shaking and laughing at the same time. I was in a group with Pare as the assistant, Eva as the director and Bella, Daisy and Me were the popstars.Then at the end of the skit we picked 3 people to be a microphone. They would sit with their hands up in the air.They were Laura, Charlotte and Guy then we would all sing price tag by Jessie J with a little dance in it :)

This is the song.

Ohh It seems like everybody's got a price
I wonder how they sleep at night
When the sale comes first and the truth come
Just stop for a minute and smile.
Why is everybody so serious?
Acting so damn mysterious
Got your shades on your eyes and your heels so high
That you can't even have a good time.
Everybody look to their left
Everybody look to their right
Can you feel that? (Yeah)
We're paying with love tonight.
It's not about the money, money, money
We don't need your money, money, money
We just wanna make the world dance
Forget about the price tag yeah.
Ain't about the (uh) cha-ching, cha-ching
Ain't about the (yeah) ba-bling, ba-bling
Wanna make the world dance

Forget about the price tag yeah.

A journey through the mind of Georgia maidens.

A journey through the mind of Georgia maidens.

Take a trip inside my mind, where anything is possible and your mind can run free and wishes come true and there are never nightmares.

At times my sister is so annoying , she will wake me up in the middle of the night and will not go away.She will always ask to play a game.

I have the most awesome friends in the world.And my family is the coolest in the world.I wonder what my family will look like.

I dream of winning a beauty contest with emerald crown and the prize is a ticket to Hollywood and I buy the cutest little puppy or kitten in the world that is white or black.

I wonder what i will look like when I am older, and what job I will have, i would like to be a vet and save animals in the jungle.

My hope is to have my own farm, with lots of horses ,bunnies, sheep,pigs,cows,chickens and farm dogs.And someone will invent a flying car.

I can often do a back flip into the pool, and a forward flip into the pool and belly flop.

When no one is watching i steel lollies, and prank call people or dance like the 1980s in the mirror.

This year my goal is to be a house caption, and be in the blue sticks.

My Personality Bag
