Why it is important to have 8hrs sleep

The human body is like a machine it works hard for us every day.When the human body is rested, the body repairs itself, while we sleep.
Lack of sleep can increase a person's risk of developing medical conditions such as obesity ,diabetes and heart disease.
Eating healthy nutritional food and drinking plenty of water with exercise is a good way of looking after our body.

When people get the sleep they need, they will not only feel better, but will also increase their odds of living a healthier, more productive lives.

Dear Miss Anderson

Thank you for all your hard work in organising speakers for our Career days. I appreciate you taking the time to make sure that everything was set up before the speakers addressed the students.
It was interesting listening to all the different stories and how each person achieved their goals through hard work, determination, and having family support.
I have started to write down my own goals that I am working towards, and hope that one day I will have a successful career.
Yours sincerely

In this explanation I will be writing about the rules for fishers. I will also mention the three different types of fisheries and their value.

Supermarkets rely on commercial fishing to supply their stores. Recreational fishers can only take what they catch depending if the fish is the legal size. The minimum size fish we are allowed to catch is from 25cm to 40cm .People must check what the rules are for the area they fish in. People who break the rules are called poachers. Poachers who  steal fish threaten  the fishing industry when poachers take more fish than needed there will not be enough fish to go around this why we have fishing rules in nz.

Temperature high/low &Non swimmers

Today we were leaning about Statistics and ordering information into graphs. The first graph is showing the Non-swimmers, either they have a medical condition or they forgot it. The second graph shows the highs/lows temperature for last week. The blue is for the low temperature,and for the red temperature is the high.

Funny, glad and festive.
Lover of banana, rugby, and going with my cousin to a party.
Who wonders what will happen in the future.
Who fears getting bitten from a lion and a poisonous snake.

Who feels hurt and when someones shoving me against the door.
Who is able to play video games and be placed first
Who would like to be a plumber
Who dreams of killing zombies

Water Fun Day

Wednesday 19 February 2014

On the 7th of February from 9 clock to 11:00
the first activity Kauri and kowhai went to was the obstacle race course. They had to fill a cup full of water and cover the top with their hand to prevent the water from tipping out and crawl under the bench,than rush to the colored buckets and back .

Mrs Tofa blew the whistle and she said move onto the next activity Rata, Kauri and Nikau slide down the water slide and ran to the bucket and pour the water into the bucket after the water slide they moved onto the zigzag race than the sponge activity.

The title of the activity described the game perfectly so theres no need for explaining through  the legs was the next activity all you do is pass the sponge through your legs and over your head once it passed down to the person at the end of the line that person runs to the bucket and squeeze all the water out .

Our next activity was the 2 armed race and we have to have a partner and wrap your arm with your partners and run to the bucket and pour the water in to the bucket and give the cup back to the people.

All four groups finally reached their last activity which was walk the blank. its similar to the obstacle course but instead of crawling under the bench you walk over it. I had so much fun and it was so cool.
