The Hoatzin

Kia ora Bloggers! For reading last week in my group we were learning about the hoatzin bird and this week we are reading about the scarlet ibis we had to do lots of activities on it and these are mine.


We had to find out how a baby Hoatzin escapes danger because they can't fly yet so they make their nest above water and with their webbed claws on their wings the swim in the water and climb back in the nest.

 This is my information web on the Hoatzins predators etc.

 we had to make an Improved Hoatzin, I this is mine and I made it improved because it is easier to escape predators. 


 We had to find out the meanings of 5 words and give an image to explain them.

Thank you all for coming on to my blog, please give me some feedback on what I could do better next time in a comment Thank you again.

The Ice Palace ( part 1 )

Kia Ora Bloggers! Firstly Thank you all for coming on my blog an I will very much like to read your comments but anyway, in Rimu ( My Class) at YMS we have been learning and reading Narratives at the moment we are making our own Narrative and we are getting Ideas from Robert swindles Ice Palace we have written our intro and build up and I have enjoyed it so far. We needed to make a brainstorm on what we are going to the write and the setting and describing words and this is mine. 
How it feels.

Bumpy, Hard, Soft, Cold Cracking, Crunching.     Slowly, the snow falls to the ground.
In the mountains, the winds swirl around my hair.     
I fall on Slippery skis from underneath me.     The icy water slowly leaks into my gloves and my cold icy hands
How It Smells, Wet, Cold, Icy.
Frozen, Frosty ground around me.
Astonished at the amount of snow and ice everywhere over the mountaintop.

How it tastes.
Cold wet water.
The wind as wild as an angry bull.
The sun and snow fighting for hours.             

It looks.
The field plastered with a thick layer of snow

After Rimu did that we had to make 3 sentences on the setting and what we would see we had to add it on to the starting sentence in the real book then compare ours to his the starting sentence was “Turn your face into the east wind, and if you could see forever you would see Ivan’s land. It is a land where...”

My Sentence.

  1. Where… snow twinkles onto the skins of the people and the fur of the wolves.

2. Where… the thick deep beautiful snow swallows everything around it with a thick coat of coldness.

3. Where.. The wolves meet the people and the people aren't scared of the wolves, a land where Ivan loves his people and they love him.

This a picture of the cover of the book please comment on what you think is going to happen.

I would love to see you Ideas for an icy landscampe and please give me some feed back on my sentinces.

Bye have an amazing day

My Class Eco Trip

This is the slide I did on my reflection on our class trip for inquiry it was very fun and I would gladly do it again, the PMI on my slide is how I think my inquiry worked as a team. The eco trip was very fun and I really enjoyed it I found it challenging to make sure at the end in the eco shop we only spent $500 imaginary dollars.

This is Abby ( my friend ) and I realizing what we found out about pears and what is the best for the environment.

This is the photo of what we learned about how to buy things and learn how to find out which is better for the environment and the buying in bulk.

This is Chris our instructor explaining to us how much rubbish we really use and how bad it is and how we can reduce the amount.

This is my group putting where we think our card goes in the steps of recycling and reusing we said that is was the third and we got it right.

Thsi is me in Abby going shopping in the eco shop to buy things for our imaginary flat, our budget was $500 imaginary dollars but we only spent $240 we bought a lot of things we didn't need.

My Tiny House

Kia Ora bloggers! before I start with what I have done thank you for coming on my blog!
In Rimu we have been making a tiny house for maths, you could work with a buddy or by yourself I worked with my friend Abby, I have reflected on how it turned out and have taken lots of photos.

This is a photo of my Rough draft which was my favorite part overall.

These are the area and perimeter of the base, walls, and roof. we also had to do the area and perimeter of the tiny furniture.

The outside of my tiny house, this is the outside of my tiny house.

This is a picture of us working on mine and Abby's tiny house, it was very challenging gluing down the walls and furniture to the base.

This is my final version of our tiny house, it was very rewarding to see the final product and draw the final touches. I really enjoyed making tiny houses.

My reflection, this is what I think of the standard and quality of my work and what I found challenging.
  to clear up what I said in these pictures I said what I found challenging. What I found challenging was sticking the tiny furniture   down to the base and doing the same with the walls I really enjoyed making my rough draft and talking about it and what we are going to next with my friend Abby, the photo on the bottom is  how I  think I did with my slide and my tiny house.

Area and Perimeter, to involve making tiny houses with maths we had to do area and perimeter to do that you need to count and add and use your knowledge timetables.
Area:  to do area you need to use times table, Esample: for an exsample I will use a  couch it has 4 squares on the top and bottem and 2 squares on the right and left side so you have to times 4 and 2, 4 x 2 = 8 so the area is 8!
Perimeter: to do perimeter you have to use addition for an example I will use a couch again, so again there is 4 squares on the top and bottom and 2 squares on the left and right side, so you have to add 4+4+2+2, 4+4+2+2 = 12 so 12 is the perimeter!

Thank you again for coming on my blog feel free to give me some feedback in the comments below.

The Hoatzin

Kia Ora thank you all for coming on to my blog and for reading my post! in RImu ( my class ) we have been learning a lot about Birds, this week I have been learning about Hoatzin's ( pronounced watzen ).

The Hoatzin is an amazing mystical bird which is very magical it looks like something you would see in Alice in Wonderland.

The baby Hoatzins have an amazing way to escape danger like if one of their many predators try to attack company it is a tree snake, they are all born with sharp claws on their wings so the jump down into the water and swim to land the wait for the tree snake to leave.

this is the Hoatzin I made on google slides, Hoatzins are also known as the Reptile-bird, Skunk bird, or Canje Phessent.

Please feel free to comment and give me feedback and tell me what you think about the Hoatzin bird, I would love to read them, thank you all for coming on my blog thank you again, Maddison
