What happened in the Long Week End

On a Saturday afternoon, me and some of my other family members were invited to my cousins birthday party at her house, she was turning 1, I had so much fun spending time with my family, we ate cake, sang happy birthday and played a few games with my auntie. She was the person who set it all up, the invites, the games and she even made all the food, it was delicious.

My favourite part was winning this cool game called Rubrics Race where we had to moves the tiles to match the pattern. The way I won this was doing cup stacking, we had to stack the cups and then put them back into the formation they were in, I had to race against my cousins Sonny and Ken. It wasn’t really hard but it was really fun.

Next We got to eat some really delicious cake I was lucky because I got to eat a corner piece. Everything we did was so fun, I’m very lucky to have a great family that cares for each other. After that it was time to leave and I was aloud to sleep over at my cousins house Sonny and Georgina and we didn’t get home until 2.30. The next morning we were still sleeping and everyone was so full because of all that food.

Technology in WW1

Today in the afternoon Mr Burt made a visit to the year 7&8 students of Point England, he taught us about the technology that was used in World War 1. His question for us was, Technology in WW1-Good or Bad.  After a really long talk we decided to chose both, because technology can be used for good things like commenting on someone's blog but it could also be used for bad thing like hacking bank accounts.
 We learnt that technology in the war kept on getting more and more advance. All technology started getting bigger and better, country started showing of their vessels, air crafts and maybe even the cars and other things, I think that maybe technology is one of the reasons why war happens because people show of.

The talk with Mr Burt was really fun and I hope we get to talk about another really interesting thing like that again sometime this year or hopefully next year when I am a year 8. Thank you Mr Burt for the wonderful talk about technology, I think it real fun to learn about technology since we use it almost everyday this shows us to treasure what we have know and don’t go breaking it.

Remebrance Day

Remembrance Day is a memorial day to remember the heroic soldiers that died in World War 1. This day is celebrated in the Commonwealth of Nation like Australia, New Zealand and 51 other states. Many lives were lost in World War 1 and many families had died with sadness, that is why this day was created, to remember them.

On this day we give a minute of silence to respect and honour those before us also we sing the New Zealand National Anthem and we wear the beautiful red flowers called Poppies. The reason we wear poppies is because the trench warfare took place in the poppy fields of Flanders during the First World War, overtime the poppies have become a symbol of those who died during wartime.

The First World War officially ended when the Versailles Treaty was signed in 1919 the 28th of June. The Treaty of Versailles was a peace treaty between the five nations, France, Germany, Britain, Austria-Hungary and the United States after World War I. One fact is that the only reason the germans signed the treaty was because they were losing many lives very quickly.

Hopefully everyone remembers them and how they fought for our country I know I will, Lest we Forget

Zeal Zone Task

For our Zeal Zone Task we had to find out five facts about this specific day, we also had to put them all into a Google slide or Google Drawing we chose Google Drawing because it was easier. It was really fun I hope I get to do it again.
