Today for this task I had to:Write a description of what New Zealand will be like at that time (80 – 90 years from now). What kind of houses will people live in? What will they eat? Where will they work? Our roads will turn into dust. People will live in their normal houses but 3 story houses. Their food will be served by specials drones that can lift any type of foods. There will be no more plastic things. Our trees will be more bigger as if it's about to touch the tree. We will have different colored traffic lights. People would live in a country they never knew about. People will start working at night and then finish in the morning. Cafe's will no longer exist.

This is what I had to do for my activity:
Imagine that you had to form a coalition government with two other people.  Who would you choose to partner with? Here is my answer:
I would form a coalition with my mom Elani and dad Fenau. Elani would be a good partner because she always has that confident to speak to others and she always gets along with others. She is sweet and nice and does thing for me. She is also smart and makes good decisions when she is able to do things. Fenau would be great because he is really strong and he can think of things to do really fast. Whenever it's time to clean our rooms he says that he wants to do it by himself just to see what improvement he has done in cleaning. When I go back inside my room after 5 minutes I see the bed changed and im like how can he lift these beds all by himself.

This is Rachel's Example:
I would form a coalition with my son, Aronui, and with my friend, Amber. Aronui would be a great addition to the coalition because he is funny and kind. He would make us laugh and take care of us. Amber would be great because she is really smart and thoughtful. She is also good at making decisions. I think that we would form a great team. What about you? Who would you choose? Why?

A movie called Chasing Great was recently created to document his incredible rugby career.Please watch the trailer for Chasing Great and read about Richie McCaw online.

Although most of you are quite familiar with the idea of taking a ‘selfie’ (picture of ourselves), this was not always the case. In fact, it wasn’t until the early 2000s that people started talking about the idea of a selfie, taking selfies and posting them online. In honour of the rise in popularity of the ‘selfie,’ take a selfie and post it on your blog. Try to show us at least one of your hobbies or one your favourite things (maybe a special toy or book). For example, here is a selfie of Hazel drinking a big mug of tea, and Rachel with her son, Aronui, attending a Paw Patrol show!
Here is my answer:
I really love playing with slime because I really love it when it stretches out even the poking noises.

Arguably one of the most famous movie trilogies of all time, The Lord of the Rings, was filmed in New Zealand. All three movies were directed by a New Zealander named Peter Jackson. The first movie was released in 2001, the second in 2002 and the third in 2003. The movies cost an estimated $300 million to produce!  Imagine that instead of spending the money on the movies, Peter Jackson decided to give all of this money to you. Lucky you! On your blog, tell us what you would do with $300 million dollars. How would you spend it? It is a lot of money so please think carefully about it and spend it wisely.

Here is my answer: If Peter Jackson gave me all of his money I would buy new furniture and new clothes because if you buy clothes and furniture you can last it forever but the movies last long for 1 day.

In 1990, for the first time in New Zealand’s history, universities and polytechnics started charging students money to go to school. Prior to then, it had been free to go to university or to a polytechnic. Since 1990, students have had to pay thousands of dollars to attend post-secondary (after high school) education.The new Labour government have promised to give up to three years of free post-secondary education to all New Zealanders by 2020!
On your blog, tell us what you think. Should students have to pay money (tuition fees) to go to university? Why or why not? Here is my answer:

I would say no because some parents cannot afford more than 1,000 dollars just to pay for their kids fees. Even if their was a family that had 3 kids that entered university. That would be really expensive. Where would the parents get the money from? I say we should at not pay for ourselves to go to university.

For much of the past century, schools in New Zealand taught students in only one language – English. In 1972, Ngā Tamatoa member, Mrs. Hana Jackson, submitted a petition to Parliament to ask the government to include the teaching of Te Reo Māori (the Māori language) and Māori culture in New Zealand schools. We still use petitions to this day when we want an organisation (e.g. a school) to make a change.

Think about your school. What is one thing that you would like change. Would you like to learn about different things? Maybe you think school should only be open 3 days a week?

On your blog, write a letter to your principal to try and convince him/her to make the change. Ensure that your letter is polite and respectful.
Dear Mr Johnson I have been having 5 days of school every week. I think I should have 4 because it would get some time to rest more for our brains before getting back to learning. Even it could be a special time to fare well family . On Friday can still be school time but a fun time like getting together and getting to spend your favorite thing with your best friends. I say this because when kids at Panmure bridge school yr4-8 have a break they still need to do more work e.g summer learning journey which gives them the option to finish everything so that when they get back to school there results retrieve higher.
