Kia ora,talofa lava,ola and greetings to you all my name is Leilani and this is my animation for term 2 2017.We are learning about fishing and sailing and how it has changed over the years. When Maori people first arrived in New Zealand they used boats called waka’s. Waka’s were made out of wood and they had Maori carvings around them. Later on when the pakeha arrived they made boats that are called sailing boats and they had sails. Then a few more years later they add lights, anchors, hotels,engines and more! Once I saw a boat with a pool and a huge slide. This sailing boat is super cool they use it in the America's cup.The sailing boats go super fast and you have to pedal so that the boat moves.

Last week in Room 8 we tried something different with our maths to get better at our place value after the decimal point. We got to go outside and use chalk to measure our height, hand and arm span it was so much fun! We then measured these lines with a ruler to she how long each of these lines were. By measuring with a ruler we were able to look at numbers after the decimal point and see how to use these in a practical way! Check out our photos of this fun way of learning!!

One night a girl named Belle decided to go for a walk. Belle went walking through the streets towards her favourite cafe. As she was walking she could hear someone creeping up behind her. Before she knew what it was it was too late. This person behind her grabbed at her. This person wanted all of her money. So he took her to his lair. Belle tried to call the police but the guy had a gun in his hand so she dropped her phone on the ground. The attacker yelled “leave the phone or you die!” Belle cried “HELP ME! HELP ME!” Spiderman heard her cries for help. Spiderman burst through the window Bom! Bang! Spiderman took out the bad guy with on big kick. Spiderman took the bad guy to jail. Spider man turned to Belle and said “ there are dangerous people out there so be careful.” Spiderman and Belle became best friends. THE END
