China Quake

What a shock China has had another quake at South Western Sichuan at last week Saturday night in town. Eventually over 5,500 people are injured  and a proximally 156 people dead. Before the quake at evening, an earthquake  hit Long Men hard and nearly busted down all of there buildings crushed. 20 hours later a teenage girl Wang Xing seated her family in fresh air outside and a large blanket on top to keep them warm. Rescuers,Helpers and also family members helped people get to the nearest hospitals and wait and pray. May God  help and bless China.


Today I have completed 1 activity to do with Measurements on Maths Whiz. It helped me learn how to do measurement on a clock. Once I finished my activity I get credit to maybe buy a toy or a live dragon to play with in my own time. Maths Whiz is a great website to learn mathematics.

How boring the Holiday's are

I am so glad there is a television in earth because if not wow there would be nothing else I would be doing during the holidays. My dog Tintin had been a naughty,     nh because he had ate the hose into pieces. Watching the dog channel has been very interesting to watch because there's different looking dogs that there hairs are longer than there eyes.  I won't be looking forward to the next holiday's for next term.

Tonga Vs Samoa

Wow what a game! It was very challenging for Samoa trying to get across the field and get a stunning try. At the first half Tonga was very quick and exceptional getting those tries. Suddenly number 5 playing for Samoa lights up the team and wins a try. Although both teams did fabulous work Tonga scored 36 and Samoa scoring 4 so that makes it a win win for Tonga. Good game!

Tamaki College P.E Lessons

Yesterday Wednesday the year 7 and 8 walked sensibly to Tamaki College for P.E lessons.
I was very excited to play Gold Rush because I have never had heard of that game.

It was our second P.E lesson with the students from Tamaki College. When we got into the hall we started off with a warmup game called:Rats and Rabbits. Then we moved onto Gold Rush, it started off by 5 cones at each of the 2 sides. The students were split into 2 groups and had to find out a way to steal a cone from the other team. It was very challenging trying to get to the other side to get the cones. I felt really exhausted and hot.

Huge Explosion In Boston

Shocking a university student and his own brother were the cause of the big bombing in Boston, during a marathon. The question is why would they cause this massive explosion ? Helicopters were flying everywhere but not beyond 900 metres.Many people quickly evacuated from Boston after the explosion.The medical crew zoomed to a football field and were nursing the people in need. God Bless people in Boston.

Our Trip to Museum of Technology and Transport

We went to Motat to learn and explore Simple Mechanisms.

At MOTAT we first explored around the old vehicles.My favourite vehicle is a Morris Eight.The Morris Eight was the most sold out car in year 1930 in England. My group and I watched how a car engine worked in the olden days. While we were in the cars exhibition area we saw the huge black plane engine also.

Then we moved to the Victorian Village. While we were walking around  the Victorian Village we walked into a classroom of the olden days. We also found a pencil sharpener, an abacus, a bell and a weird looking heater. Then we went to the Chapel of the Good Shepherd. We prayed inside the church and enjoyed the experience of the small church. The church was built in 1898 and transferred to MOTAT in 1974.

After that we went to the tram station. We nearly  missed the tram as we were late. So we  quickly went through the shop and onto the tram. The tram that we were riding on was built in 1944 in Melbourne.Our Tram driver was Paul O’ Ryan.

In class we learnt about simple mechanisms. A simple mechanism is a mechanism that makes our life easier by using a simple object. Such mechanisms are pulleys, wedges, levers, wheels and the axle. An Axel gives a point of rotation for a wheel. In the 10 last minutes we got to make a simple machine. My partner and I made a small vehicle.

There were new exhibits outside the car exhibition. It was an army collection of Armoured tanks and huge guns.The FV432 Armoured Personnel Carrier was used for the army and was built in 1964. Its speed was 52 km/h.

It was a cool experience to explore MOTAT learning about Simple Machines.I had an awesome time at MOTAT learning about things I never knew.
