Swimming with the sharks - Activity two WLJ

Activity two:
Activity two:
Write a summary about the movie "Whale rider" and rate it out of 1 to 5 (1 = bad movie, 2 = okey movie, 3 = pretty good movie, 4 = good movie, 5 excellent movie).


Summary:
There was a girl named Paikea. When she was little her koro named Paka didn't want her to be a girl, instead he wanted her too be a boy. Paikea had a twin brother but he past away after he came out. Paka wanted her dead instead of him. After that Paikea's mum died. Everyone gathered around and started saying different mihi's. Paikea's father Porourangi moved away to another country. Paikea was left with her grandparents. As she got older and older, she starts doing kapa haka. When Paka made his own school, Paikea wanted to join but she wasn't allowed because it was only meant for boys. Paka was showing the boys some skills that they need to learn like how to use the taiaha. A few weeks went past and her father Porourangi came to visit. He wanted to ask her if she wanted to stay with him but she didn't want to. This is a story of a girl that sees a whale on the sand and she tries to get the whale back into the sea but can't. Then all of her family members work together and get it back into the sea. At the end they get all ride on the waka!

Rating:
I would rate this movie a 5 (which it excellent) because it's great to see my culture in there and I love the ending because that's when all the family goes in the waka and they paddle to places.

Swimming with the sharks - Activity one WLJ

Activity one:
How did the people try to save the whales?


There are about 300 whales lying in sand at the Farewell spit and neary some of them were dead. Everyone came into help and they stayed at the beach for nearly a whole night. All they could do was pore water on the whales and wait for the tide to come in. They split the people equally so the whales get the same amount of people as the rest for treatment.

Something that was so sad about this was the whales dying but not only that, people helping the whales for nearly a whole night because I knew that they would of gotten really tired and they would of been really sleepy walking back and forth getting water for the whales.

But I think it would of been a pleasure for those people that helped our whales back into the water!

Here is some information about it and some videos that are there too:

Wild eyes - Activity two WLJ

Activity two:
Do you agree that possums should be predator free? Why/Why not?

I think that there should be possums because they are harmless and you shouldn't be scared of them, they should be scared of you(and they are) because many people are killing them and eating them. Yes that maybe scary but I think that possums should only be eaten/killed if people are starving or homeless and have nothing to eat. This means that yes we should leave them alone but if you are starving for food and you have no food then I think it's the right to kill the possum. But that doesn't mean killing all of them.











Reasons why there should be possums:
- I think there should be possums because they are harmless, helpful and quite.
- I think there should be possums because even though some people may be afraid of them, there actually afraid of you, but once you and the possum get to know each other, you will become great friends.
- I also think that there should be possums because there is no need to kill them unless people are poor/homeless and have no food then that's a reason to kill a possum.

Wild eyes - Activity one WLJ

Activity one:
What kind of bird would I adopt?
A Great spotted kiwi!

What would I name it?
I would name my kiwi Roa or Roaroa because it means Great spotted kiwi in maori!

A little bit about them...
If I could adopt a bird I would adopt a great spotted kiwi because they look really cute and they can find there own food so you don't need to spend money on them. I would also like to adopt a great spotted kiwi because they are very different them other kiwi's because the female great spotted kiwi's have 2 ovaries and most kiwi's have 1.

What do they eat?
Great spotted kiwi's normally eat things like earthworms, larvae or cicadas. They also eat centipedes, spiders, beetles, weta's, snails etc. 

Where do they normally live?
Great spotted kiwi's normally live in the Northern half of the South island. They can also be found in Greymouth, Arthur's pass or North Canterbury.

Laura Dekker! Activity two - New Zealand by land and sea WLJ

Activity two:
Five questions that I would ask Laura Dekker...

1. What is something that you are scared of when you are sailing?

2. Was it fun exploring different places? Why?

3. What was the best country that you went to?(even though you said last for best).

4. When you were little, was it your dream to become a sailor? Why?

This is a non related question but...
5. Would you stop sailing for 1 million dollars? Why?

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I chose these questions to ask Laura Dekker if I interviewed her because my quote is "if people take long to answer your question, it's a sign that it's a good question". This is a quote that I made because I know that some questions can be really easy to answer but if you dig deeper on your question then your answer will be deeper.

Here is a picture of Laura Dekker...

Man gets stuck in ATM machine - Newshub WLJ

While I was watching the news I found that there was this man that got stuck in a ATM machine so I wanted to write about it. 

He didn't have his phone on him so he couldn't call anyone get help him get out. No one couldn't get him out because the bank was closed and people were thinking that it wasn't real. 

When people came the man in the ATM machine wrote a note saying "Please help I'm stuck in here and I don't have my phone. please call my boss at 210....... but people thought it was fake so they left. After 2 hours someone called the police and the mans boss so he could get the man out. 

This is the video that I found...
