School Athletics

1, 2, 3. On the count of 3 I let go of the discus and saw it thump and roll along the ground, I saw Mr Jacobsen raise 2 fingers up, I had earned 2nd place! I was so impressed with myself until someone came 2nd and I was now in 3rd place, until eventually someone took over my place (again). I was beginning to think that I wouldn't get a place out of any of the events, luckily for me there was still one more event to go-Javelin.

As we walked over to javelin I began to feel very nervous, we started off with the 11 year old boys first, watching them made my nerves build up even more, would I get a place or not?! Finally it was my turn, as I threw the javelin I scored at 1st place and then went down to 2nd place, now I was panicking, I looked up at the line and saw there were still heaps of boys to go! At the end of it all I came 3rd place!

My highlight for the day was watching the relays and coming 3rd place in javelin. I can't wait until next years athletics day!

Dream Comes True!!

Finally yesterday afternoon, we year sevens had a major dream come true. We are one of the luckiest school in the Tamaki cluster trying out our new Netbooks. Thanks to Housing New Zealand and a very kind and generous man Dean Farmer for donating money for the first 100 Netbooks.

We got them yesterday after lunch but today we got to have a full experience with them. Working on the Netbooks is very cool because we don't have to pull out our exercise book and pencils. As part of doing our work we had to take a photo and publish it with this post. WOO HOO Dream Come True !!

What are volcanoes?
Volcanoes are kind of like mountains. They are created when magma inside of the earth escapes to the surface. Most volcanoes are found on the edge of the earth plates. There are 1500 volcanoes in the world.

How are volcanoes formed?
Volcanoes are formed when the magma hits the surface and it is called lava.
It is also formed when the lava flows down the volcano. (can also form when two plates split apart, leaving cracks in the earths crust)

How does an eruption occur?
An eruption occurs when two tectonic plates collide at a convergent boundary. Volcanic eruptions vary from gentle to violent depending on the amount of gas in the magma.
Different types of volcanoes.
Cinder Cone Volcanoes explode fiery clouds of ash rather than flowing lava. When they explode pieces of varying sizes called cinders fly high. The cinders that fly high are also the name of the volcano that is why they are call the cinder cone volcano.
Shield Volcano are large volcanoes that are built entirely out of fluid lava flows. It has shallow sides mounds. It got it name from the ancient warriors shield and it sits on the oceans crust.
Strato Volcano are volcanoes that has steep slopes and when it explode
it spits out clouds of ash and cinders. Some of the most famous volcanoes in the world are strato volcanoes. After the explotion, when the lava cools up it leaves layers and layers of lava and sometimes of layers of ash. This is the reason why they are also called composite volcano because of there slope sides.

The Largest Volcano
Mauna Loa is the biggest active volcano and also the largest volcano on
earth. It has erupted 33 times since 1848. Its last eruption was in 1984, it also erupted in 1942 during World War 2.

It is an extinct volcano.

I feel very happy that I live in Auckland because I can spot one extinct volcano right when I open my front door. (Mt Wellington)

Mr Furious

Mrs Nua gave us a task to complete, In this task we either had to design a buisness card or create our own explorer character. It was quite hard to design a character because it took a lot of thinking, drawing and rubbing out, finally I came up with my very own creation-Mr Furious. He sails around the world on his floating device, his weapon is an oar but he also uses it to paddle and to reflect the sun when it is too hot. Nick name Mr F
