Flow Chart for Democracy


This flowchart is about the democracy in New Zealand. My group (Oh Hsen, Shannon, CJ, Fraidoon, Daniel and AJ) put the things that happens in an election in order of power. The first that we put is the queen because she is the head state, then the governor general, Local election, general election, elected prime minster and house of parliament. I also learnt the definition for democracy and the langue of origin which is Greek.  

What Is a Prime Minster?


This week LS2 have been learning about the role of a prime minster. For this task my group (Daniel, Oh Hsen, Shannon, CJ, Fraidoon and A.J) picked the former prime minster David Lange. I have learnt a lot of things about David Lange, one of the thing that he did was help New Zealand stay Nuclear free.

Tech

On Friday we had tech, the year 8's are having stained glass with Mr Grundy. This week we had to draw our final design and Mr Grundy had to check and see if it's okay. After everyone has finished drawing their final design we got to cut glass, I think this tech rotation stained glass in the hardest because it s hard to cut the glass.

Run Jump Throw with Andy

This week we had Run Jump Throw with Andy. The first activity that we did was warm up game witch was octopus, this game was really fun. Then we went to, how to throw a discuss. This was a little hard most of us who does not like throwing anything. After everyone has had one try at throwing a discuss we then went into, how to throw a shot put. I think that this activity was challenging for most of us because the shot put was really heavy. I would like to say a big thank you to Andy for having us this week for Run Jump Throw. I can not wait for next weeks session.

Today at Tamaki College

Today the year 8's, stayed at Tamaki College for an experience day. First we played battle ships in Maths with Mr Jones, that was really fun. Then we went to Science with Mr Stoddard and Mr Singh, they taught us about static energy and we did three experiments. They were really awesome. We then had lunch. I thought that it was really nice that the staff at Tamaki College bought us subway. After lunch we had English with Mr Stevenson, we did a fun activity. We had to find visual images, of the words that we had to remember. Then we went to PE with Mr Moyes, we played turbo touch. That was a really awesome game. I would like to thank the staff at Tamaki College for looking after us.
