Extension Reflection

My time at Extension has been a blast. There has been so many funny moments and exciting moments. Although this was my first year and last year it has been full of very interesting events like the trip to Tiritiri Matangi island and we have also had the chance to talk to schools in Hawaii twice.

After all of the fun and excitement there has been tests that have not always been easy but nothing is. I remember the day that we went to the Auckland University to see what kind of 3D printer do we want. We ended up with the most expensive and fastest 3D printer that they had we were given the printer later on by the rotary club. The printer was a Makerbot Replicator 2. Here is a picture of it.

My favorite moment of the year was 3D printing. There were so many items that we had made. The other two that had helped me was Jordan A and Iisa S. 3D printing has been a great experience. One time I had made a big spider and while it was being made Iisa thought it was broken so he touched the spider leg and he broke it himself here is a picture of it.

Google Expedition

Yesterday team five was privileged enough to be able to experience the google cardboard, we did not use the Iphone six we used the Asus zenfone 2.  The year sevens were first because the year eights had to go to teach at tamaki college in the morning. But luckily we were aloud to use them after morning-tea.
After morning tea all of the year eights had to sit in the street (The Middle of the classrooms) we were placed into our three groups that we are in every thursday when the year sevens are at tech. I was in group toru (three) and rua (two) was first so the rest of us went to our math groups until it was our turn. We were next when it was our turn we sat in the street and waited for our instructions. We were aloud to try the google cardboard out and my favorite screen was the picture with the dead leaf pray mantis.

The Amazing Race PES

On Tuesday morning at 11:30 am team five was privileged enough to do something interesting and exciting. It was what we could (The Amazing Race.) It was an interesting game to all of us since my group’s first task was some of us had to have to eat one dry Weat-Bix as fast as we could.

I was up first with two other competitors. I tried my best and it looked like best was the best since I came first with 1 minute and 14 seconds. The other half of the group had to eat fruit salad with raw spaghetti inside the same bowl. Luckily I am allergic to kiwi fruit so I was off the hook with that.

After that we had to move to our second task which was the brain buster which I thought it was that it was a brain freeze challenge but it was not, it was a challenge for the brain to see who could answer  the four difficult questions first but no one was able to answer them not even I could it was very frustrating for me I did not like this task at all.

But the next one was interesting because we had to dress up and take photos of our stupidity. There were some really funny costumes like Boxing equipment, Ballerina Tutus, Instruments and some that I could not see for myself.

Now the last task was the game could (Cookie Face.) It was very interesting and difficult. The aim of the game was to place a biscuit on our forehead and try move it into our mouth with only our facial movements in one minute.

It was very difficult but funny since only two people in the group could achieve it and another part that I will not forget was that Tihi cheated, and he ate half of the biscuit without moving it to his mouth with his facial movements (That clown.)

After all of that wonderful experience my favourite task was the Cookie face competition because it was challenging but full of laughter from the team.
I want to thank the teachers for allowing team five to have this wonderful experience.

A time something went missing

Last term I went swimming with my friend Shaitarn in the weekend. I had to go to his house to pick him up first. After he grabbed his swimming togs he got the scooter from the back yard so I would not have to walk far with my moon-boot as he walked down to the pools I scooted from his place, and it was not very far.

As soon as we arrived we had to sign in first.Before we were allowed to enter the pool area. After we signed in we walked to the changing room to get changed it did not take long.

After we got change we put our bags near the lockers and hoped into the pool. It was cold at first but then our body got used to it and then it felt warm. We swam around for a bit then my watch started to irritate me. I hopped out of the pool and took off my watch and put it next to my bag.

We continued swimming until 4:15 which was the time that shaitarn's mum told us to come back because I was also staying the night. I picked up my bag and forgot about my watch. When I got changed I remembered and went to go and get it but it wasn't there. I told Shaitarn that it was missing so he started to help me look for it but no luck I thought someone had stolen it.

I gave up and walked to the reception and asked if someone had brought it there and luckily for me someone had given it to the lady she gave it to me. I was relieved that someone had brought it to her instead of stealing it.

Immersion Assembly Term 4 2015

Today was the first day of Term 4 2015. When we enter the hall we all sit down in our seats and face the front. We waited for the assembly to start. When I first laid eyes on Mr Burt I started to laugh. Mr Burt started to talk to us about the topic of this term which was survival. He started to talk about what he was dressed in and what its meaning was.

He played a movie about this made up bird that is now extended. the name was fia boko. He told us that the bird was annoying to all that had met it in point dingaling. It always thought it was the best and the most important thing in the world. It started to annoy this one family so much that they called the bird hunter that ended up killing the bird and stuck it in the oven and when he opened the oven there was a bag of KFC. So the hunter went outside and shared this food with the family that the bird had been bugging.

Mrs George walked in front of the stage and told us that team 1 will be going to the zoo this term to learn about how animals survive. Then she asked up about 15 people to sing karaoke. Once they all come up on the stage to sing.

When the music started a movie was playing on the screen while the kids had to sing which was Roar from Katy Perry. the movie was about all the zoo’s facts around the world. There very funny and cute scenes. My favorite bit was that a toddler was standing in front of the glass while on the other side a lion is trying to eat the kid. The winner was Mrs King’s daughter Marika

I think that this was one of the best things that I will remember when I leave to go to college.
