Summer Learning Journey - Bonus Activity

For this bonus activity, I had to write a letter to a family member or a friend about why you want to go to the country you choose. This is my letter I wrote: 

Dear Dad, 
I am going to Chile to learn many new things like their language and to try different foods. When I come back I will show the amazing pictures I took of the worlds longest beach and the worlds oldest mummy. I will also teach you Chile's language and hopefully we can go there sometime together. I will be gone for 2 - 5 weeks and I will miss you the most. Love, from Zahra.

Summer Learning Journey - Facts about Chile

For this second activity, what I had to do was find three facts about Chile. I wasn't allowed to include the facts in the world map.
Fact One: Chile has the worlds biggest swimming pool which is a length of 1000 yards.
Fact Two: Chile has the worlds oldest mummy.
Fact Three: Chile has 17.62 million people.

Summer Learning Journey

For this summer learning journey, the activity was to choose a country that I would like to visit and give 2 or more reasons why we choose that country. I choose Chile because it is the worlds narrowest country stretching along South America. My second reason is because it has the worlds oldest mummy and I have never seen a mummy.

2017 Year 7 Nominee Speech



Good Afternoon dear Principal, teachers and students. My name is Zahra
and I have been nominated for Manaiakalani Leader.
I will make the perfect candidate for this role. Why? First of all, being a Manaiakalani Leader means being able to speak confidently, present leadership, be a role model and many more which I will show as time progresses.
My blog is always up to date as I have completed a majority of my work and have posted them on my blog with an understandable blurb. I have an approximate of 400 blog posts and I will be sure to post more as time goes on. I promote and highly encourage younger students to stay active on their blog.
Furthermore, I use the school values and take excellent care of my netbook. I show respect towards teachers as well as students, the environment and visitors. I will make people smile and encourage students who need motivation.
Representing Panmure Bridge will be a huge privilege since I have all the skills needed. I wear the uniform with pride and have always strived to succeed.
In addition, It has been one of my goals since the start of the year to become Manaiakalani Leader, all I need is for a chance to prove myself. It is a position made for me! Yes, for me! Please, consider me for the 2017 Manaiakalani Leader and I promise you, I will make you all proud!
Thank you.

I have been nominated for Manaikalani leader of Panmure Bridge School. All the students who have been nominated had to write a speech about why they should be a leader. This is my speech which I wrote. I am grateful for those people who had voted for me as Manaikalani leader. On Friday after Tech LS2 went to the hall to recite their speeches. I was nervous as I stepped onto the stage. My legs were shaking in fear as I read my speech. I tried my best and spoke with confidence. I muddled up my words a few times but I never gave up. Well done to each nominee as they tried their best to recite their speech's.

We  learnt many things and had a great time there. We were put into 3 groups to go around and explore Tahuna Torea. We got to look at the wetland where the birds and Godwits migrate from and where they also rest. We also played on the park and had a bush walk. It was a very warm day but the seniors have lots of fun.

In my group, there was Pote, Thomas, Victoria, Nesi, Charlize, Zahn, Mahdia, Calvin, Oh Hsen, C.J, Afu and I. Our first task working collaboratively was to complete our question matrix. After completing our question matrix we relied on our prior knowledge by using no internet or any books. Using our prior knowledge we wrote down how people traveled today, 30 years ago and 100 years ago.

Tamaki College - Rockets


Last week, on Friday we went to Tamaki College to learn about rockets. In this DLO I have added some information about rockets and our score for our straw rockets. We spent the whole day with Mr. Dunn. LS2 really enjoyed this session and recapped many things we remembered. After we made straw rockets  it was interesting seeing how far they could go. It was really awesome since we made some papered rockets and shoot them up in the sky.
