The day I saved a birds life

I was splashing in the the pool with my sister when I heard  a faint, scared chirp for help. It was a bird with a broken wing, so I jumped up in excitement. 
I grabbed it to make sure it was ok. It was camouflaged to hide from its prey.  I sprinted like a flash of lighting inside, and put it down carefully because I didn't want it to get hurt, I love birds. 
I was wondering if it was going to be okay.  All I could think was how it had broken its wing.

Adventure

It was a quiet breezy morning with the trees dancing from left to right then something hit me. I stared in horror out of my window, a monster was stomping on the trees.  Was it an alien? Was it a crocodile? No, it was a big dinosaur lumbering towards me.  I sprinted outside to grab my rope and saddle.  I hooked my rope on the dinosaur's neck and climbed up.  I put the saddle on the dinosaur and off we went.  Why have we stopped? I looked down and smelled something disgusting, I realise the dinosaur had pooed. I jump off and realised I was in the middle of the forest - nooo!!!

Lewis

                        

He has browny blonde hair.  He wears baggy long tops and baggy pants that are soft like silk. His tops are red and blue with a chrome black.

He has a habit of riding his skateboard in class. He and his friend love to hang out at the skatepark. He can fly and camouflage.  His friend is Tinks who is a fairy. 

Lewis is also angry and he always groans.  When he shapeshifts into a dragon he groans 10 times louder.  When Lewis is actually happy he makes happy puppy noises.

He only hangs out with Tinks who is a hunter and he is tiny, so he is really good at hiding.

Riccarton Bush

We went to Riccarton Bush, it was fun because we went through a native part where we found this awesome tree.  We found a dead bird and we found a huge tree.  We also saw a bird.

Discovery time reflection

The activities I enjoyed the most was box creation because Josh and I did it together.  It took us a long time but it was worth it.  The challenges we had with the house was time, we rushed so some of the house did not look good.  We overcame this challenge by not worrying about time so now our house is looking good.  At Discovery I learnt how to saw fast and I learnt that you don't have to be strong.

We included Talan and Cooper and it got done quicker.  Josh, Cooper, Talan and I planned ahead when there was no boxes by planning who brings the box.  We had to take turns with scissors, paper, cards and lots more stuff. We had to be patient to get a good result because it took quite a long time.  We had to make decisions to change the house.  We were being responsible with the scissors. We took time to know who was bringing what.  We all helped each other, Josh helped me build something, I helped him by making some stuff.  I became better at sawing because Mrs jones helped me.  

Overall I think that discovery time is great.  In term four I am looking forward to running an activity.

Speech reflection

The parts of my speech I enjoyed most was finishing my speech because it took so long and I didn't get a break. This was the challenge I encountered while speech writing - finding interesting words to relate to my speech.  I overcame this challenge by asking Cooper and Jacob and looking in the dictionary.  Overall I feel proud of my speech because I worked for literally three days, for me it's pretty long and I got lots of help from my friends.

As I practiced reading my speech out loud I tried to get over my fear of stage fright.  I was challenged to look up at my audience because of my stage fright.  Looking at my friends got me over my fear of speaking to a group.  Overall I feel satisfied with how I delivered my speech because I spoke loud and clearly.

Stereotyping Explantation


Stereotyping is something that people say that is not true it is mean and can hurt them.  Sometimes it can be racist and sexist. Never judge a book by it's cover because you never know what kind of person they are.

Here are some examples of stereotyping: 
Boys like blue.  I disagree because boys can choose if they like blue or not.

Girls like pink. I disagree because girls can choose if they like pink or not and some girls don't like pink.

Boys are rough and rude. I disagree because even though some can be rude and rough at times I know they can be nice and kind too.  

Indians work at KFC. I disagree because I have seen people from different cultures work at KFC. People can choose what they can do for their future job.

Boys play rugby and girls play netball.  I disagree because I have girls in my class who play rugby and also I know boys that play netball.

Overall I think that stereotyping is mean, unfair and not true.  It can hurt people forever.
