Election Results

This morning we were learning what is a Coalition and how affects the election. A Coalition is when Political parties join forces to help choose a new Prime Minister. E.g: If Winston Peters joins Labour they will win and if he joins National they will win. Today I learnt what a Coalition is.

This is a DLO about democracy and what it means. When I made this DLO I learnt a lot about what democracy means and also I learnt how the government works just a little bit more. I worked with Fraidoon, Daniel, Aj, Eric, Oh Hsen and Cj.

NZ Prime Minister

This is a DLO I made about the Prime Minister David Lange who was an amazing Prime Minister who stood up for New Zealand and what he believed was right for the country. I had a lot of fun researching about David and what wonders he brought to the country. I made this DLO with help from Eric, Aj, Cj, Daniel, Oh Hsen and Fraidoon.

Tamaki College

On Friday all the year 8's went to Tamaki College for the day. First we went to hard materials for Tech with Mr Grundy. We are going to make our own class design we had to plan what our design would look like. It could be a mirror or a flower, it can be any thing we want it to be. At 10:50 we walked over to the library to have our morning tea in the library. There were two teachers waiting for us. Mr Dunn and Mr Jones. Mr Jones was the maths teacher. Mr Dunn is the Deputy Principal. After we head off to Mr Jones' classroom for maths. We played a game of battleships. He shared a google draw with us that had a grid with five ships on it and we had to randomly put them anywhere. At 12:00 we went to science. We were learning about static electricity. An example is if you try to put left and right magnets together they will stick, but if you but a left and left magnet together they will try to get as far away as possible from each other. After that we had lunch back at the library, then we had English with Ms Stevenson. In English we had to look at some words carefully and memorise them. We then had to write them down on a document and find images of the words. Our last class was PE. We played a game of turbo touch. My team scored 3, the red team scored 5 and the no bibs score 2. I really had a fun day I would like to thank Tamaki College for welcoming us.
