Editing made up story

Here is our edited story.
Things we learnt about were
We aren’t allowed to use then, and, also and because at the beginning of a sentence.
Speech marks go on the OUTSIDE of the full stop or other punctuation.
The end of a sentence can be marked by a full stop, an exclamation mark or a question mark. You don’t need to put an extra full stop after a question mark.
Remember to check ALL capital letters. Sometimes we need to put them in and sometimes we need to take them out.
On Monday 24th September 2018 Room 7 did a blindfold challenge. We wanted to have fun and make our morning a bit interesting by playing a game.

Firstly Miss Ashley told us the rules which was “no touching the tables or pieces of paper on the floor or you will lose points.“  However you are allowed to touch the chairs because you sometimes have to step over them to get to the end. Next we got into buddies. My buddy was Lucina.  We had to line up by the heater in our buddies.

First it was my turn to go so Lucina (my buddy)  put the blindfold on me (over my eyes) and helped me to stand up. The blindfold was tight it felt like a constrictor boa on my face. I felt so confused and disorientated because the blindfold was covering my eyes. Lucina told me to “go left, right, straight and step over.” I was feeling nervous and a little bit scared because “what if she was tricking me?“ and I was really doing something silly. I got to the end safely and took my blindfold off.

Next it was my buddies turn so I helped her put the blindfold on. I told her to walk straight first, then next turn left. She doesn’t know her lefts and rights so she went the wrong way.I said “no your other left” and it was a little bit funny. In the end we got to the blue fruit tray and we made it without losing any points!

I think I would like to do this activity again because it was cool to do something different and fun in class especially since it’s the end of the term and I think we are all feeling kind of tired.

“Today we are playing the blindfold challenge everyone” said Miss Ashley, whole of room 7 replied “Okay Miss Ashley” with an excited voice Miss Ashley said “ okay this are the rules if you bump into a table you lose 2 points if you step on paper you lose 1 point but if you get up to chairs you won’t lose points because you get to use them to get to the end and touch the purple cardboard” room 7 replied “Okay we know all the rules now Miss Ashley”

All of room 7 got into buddies but because Havea didn't have anyone so me and Railey put him in our group because he is our friends so we wanted to be nice to him that’s why we put him our group, I was the first one in our group who went first I felt paralyzed and also blind while I had the blindfold on when Railey and Havea had their turn they felt the same as well.

Me and Havea had a hard time telling Railey where to go because he was kinda not listening to me and him because he went his own way but he did really good because I liked how thinked about what we said so he was a very good listener and followed instructions.


I was not paying a tenchin at all to Railey and I thought to myself “Am I being a good friend not listen to Railey” so after that I was being a good friend to Railey but he was happy that I did not touch anything to lose points for our team I was  happy that Railey and Havea made it to the end and made us have 30 points also that made our team win the game.

My favorite course was all of them because they were very easy they were a very cool team game so that made the whole of room 7 very happy and also extremely FUN! The easy one was the first because Miss Ashley made it easy for us to get past and make us get EXTREMELY EXCITED!

One thing Leon did well was Making his story long for people to enjoy.

One thing Leon need to work on is Putting full stops in the right place.

VOLCANOES

Volcano is a big mountain and it can erupt and it is full of lava and magma also smoke. The top of the head is some call ash clouds and the volcano there is lots of crust under the volcano and magma is so powerful and strong also it’s magma is so hot it will melt anything in it’s way like humans and other things.

Volcanoes are openings in the Earth's surface. When they are active they can let ash, gas and hot magma escape in sometimes violent and spectacular eruptions.

Volcanoes are the most violent thing in the WORLD! If you get stuck in a volcano you may have to waste all your energy just to call out for help but if you have friends you will be lucky because they will be a great friend to you just to make sure you will be safe and stay alive.

Volcanoes can be safe at times because they are dormant or extinct but if the earth starts to shake that means the volcano you are on it may be active at times so make sure that you are safe around the volcano that you are on or around.

Natural Disasters

Information report: natural disasters
Natural disasters are a phenomenon which occur all around the world. Some are caused by moving tectonic plates, some are caused by wind and air pressure, and some are caused by other natural disasters.

Volcanic Eruptions.
Volcanic eruptions are so dangerous they can kill anything and anyone, nobody should not be near a volcanic eruptions because they will die in a couple of seconds like the terminator did in the movies. 

Earthquakes.
Earthquakes can kill you if you fall into the crack that the tectonic plates make but people call them earthquakes instead so make sure that your country is not shaking because if that happens your dead so run if it happens.

Hurricanes, typhoons and cyclones.
Hurricanes,Typhoons and cyclones are all the same things but I think Hurricanes are bigger, faster also stronger but they all might be all the same strength speed even how big they are but I still think hurricanes are bigger.

Tsunamis.
Tsunamis are fast strong but when it uses all its power its strength get weaker and when it gets to that country or state it won't be strong but it will still make a big flood so people won't die things won't break.
Tornadoes
Tornadoes are big and strong but there not stronger and bigger than a hurricane might be slower than tornadoes.  Tornadoes can make you puke and make you very dizzy so watch out make sure you prepared.

Floods and drought.
Floods are very common when tsunamis come but floods might not happen if a tsunami comes it is because that tsunami had not much power. Droughts happen very often in places that don't have rain people die horrible deaths when there are droughts in that country.

Blizzards and Ground Blizzards.
A blizzard is a severe snowstorm characterized by strong sustained winds of at least 35 mph (56 km/h) and lasting for a prolonged period of time typically three hours or more. A ground blizzard is a weather condition where snow is not falling but loose snow on the ground is lifted and blown by strong wind.

Dust storm.
Dust storms are made from lightning bolts happen then strong winds come than make a big dust storm that goes really fast but when is settles all of it is done

Wildfire.
Wildfires are a man made natural disaster that can kill people burn land also devastate people also nobody likes that man made wildfire because it is very dangerous to human kind and animal kind.


Man-made and natural disasters can devastate people and the places we live in. Although we can’t predict most natural disasters, we can do our best to keep safe and look after our properties and things we value.

Tongan Language week

“Umm what should me and you play” havea said and replied “we can both play Bani or Fusi” But Havea went to go play fusi and I played Bani.
(Also yesterday it was the 5th of September 2018 and we were celebrating tongan language week so we played some tongan games) 

When I got there I went to play the real dodgeball there are to sides for the person that got out if that person gets you the person that got you gets to go out and play while you are out your goal is to get the person out. To get back in the game, I got so many people on my first try but then they got harder to hit and everytime I threw it went like swish so I tried my best to use my special move to get them more faster because when I used it will go very fast and get the person that is on the side I can be very good at these kind of games but sometimes I suck at games.

When I got in I did very good but sometime I missed but it was very cool to play that game I just manly just played that game but I played a little bit of tug of war I versed Michael and he cheated by pulling from the not to win so actually I won.

IMPORTANT WORDS

THE IMPORTANT WORDS FROM OUR SLIDE SHOW

Droughts happen when there is less rain than expected. This also means there is a shortage of water and not enough to meet the needs of people, plants and animals. However, droughts are a usual part of the climate and they can happen in most parts of the Earth.

Warm water in the Pacific Ocean doesn’t get close to Australia. The winds that blow it towards Australia are not as strong. This means there is less moist air and this will usually lead to less rain and storms.

1982-1983
This drought was short and it was caused by a very strong El NiƱo event. About half of Australia had very low rainfall levels. Eastern and central Australia were most affected. The bush became very dry so this drought contributed to the bushfires in 1983 called Ash Wednesday.

1991-1995
Queensland experienced exceptionally low rainfall levels. About 40% of the state was declared to be in drought. Many farmers lost their crops and livestock. Unemployment became a problem as people in rural areas lost their jobs.
