Democracy In New Zealand

For the last activity for our Elections task I created a DLO on Democracy in New Zealand. In my DLO I have made a flow chart. I have included the definition of Democracy and the site I got the definition from. I also included what "Demo" means and "Cracy" means. I learnt that Democracy is originated in Greece. 

Election - Helen Clark

For our second Election activity we had to research a Prime Minister from the Past. I did Helen Clark. I learnt that Helen Clark was New Zealand's fifth longest-serving Prime Minister. I think Helen Clark has the a splendid and proud leader because she was the first Labour Leader to win three consecutive elections. The DLO above shows you a profile of Helen Clark and how she changed New Zealand. 

Election - Jigsaw

For the election that is happening now every intermediate students are studying about election and what happens in a election. We have learnt all the parties that is entered in the election . In LS2 we have been working collaboratively on a activity called Election Jigsaw. We had to name all the political parties and name the leader, the electorate (what place they are representing), a picture of them and the picture of the party logo. For example Nationals leader is Bill English his electorate is Cultha-South land. LS2 have found out that the two main parties are Labour and National.

Learning to use synonyms

Today for writing we were focusing on synonyms. A synonym is a word that means exactly the same as another word for example It was so hot outside. Another word for hot could be boiling. Above shows the DLO Freeman and I have made about Synonyms. It shows you powerful words Freeman and I have used. I learnt that another word for funny is bizarre. It was a bit hard because there were a lot of synonyms for us to chose from.

Why It's Important To Speak Out Against Bullying?


Today for Inquiry we were discussing how to stand up and to speak out to bullies. It is really important to stop someone bullying a child. If someone's bullying someone else you should tell the bully "cut it out you're just looking for attention" or you could say to the victim "let's go play somewhere else". Children should be using their WITS which is Walk Away, Ignore, Talk to an adult or teacher, Stand Up. Above is a short film that Fradion, Jay-Don and I did about bullying.

It's great to be me because I can do little achievements to reach my big goal.I think one of the things that I should do to reach my big goal is I should study hard and to never give up.Today I have found out more about me. One of them were our goals. My goal is to pass my NCEA test, go to University and become a qualified Pilot. After that we got into groups of 4 and made a word cloud about why it is great to be the age (11-13) we are now.
