"Tinkering, Tools and Toys"

Today for Zeal Zone, Team 5 began "Tinkering. Tools and Toys." Our class spent time brainstorming ways that we could make Pt. England a better place to be. I am in a group with Keis, Mao, Rebekah, Quasia and Lizara. Our group name is called Chicken Wing.

My group has decided that we are going to do a Arcade, but only for girls. If we had to build a Arcade we would put it in the green screen room with some vending machine.

Puawai Future Aspiration

Today at school 3 special visitors came to our school to talk about their Future Aspiration. What is Future Aspiration? Well Future Aspiration means looking into the Future and aiming for you goal in life. In your life you have to strive to succeeded.

Our 3 special visitors were Marcus Winter, Louis Gordon-Latty and Andrew Patterson. Marcus Winter “ The Sandman”, Louis Gordon-Latty “ Glory League” and Andrew Patterson “ The Speaker.

The first presenter was Marcus Winter. Marcus Winter is a sand artist. When he was in primary he was a painstakingly (very slow writer) writer. When he was in primary he was in the extension class. He thought that he was one of the brainiest in his school. But when he found that extension is for all the dumb people.

Our final presenter was Louis Gordon-Latty. Louis Gordon-Latty is a man who loves to play basketball even when he was 5 years old. He told us about an invention he made up that involves an iPad. This invention was made to record people while they're playing basketball. How it works, well it works when the judges press a button then the iPad starts recording, and it stops when the judges press another button and then the iPad sends an email to everyone who was playing basketball.

The speaker was Andrew Patterson. Andrew Patterson talked about quotes. One of the quotes are “ Do more of what makes you awesome” and “ You don't remember what people said, you don't remember what they did BUT you do remember how they made you fell” I enjoyed listening to them all.

The thing I liked about this activity was that I learnt how to do long division. The long division strategy is really good. Because when you have a hard division equation. I would use this strategist.

Five facts about Anzac

1. The original ANZAC biscuit was known as an ANZAC wafer or tile and was part of the rations given to ANZAC soldiers during World War I. They were included instead of bread because they had a much longer shelf life.

2.  ANZAC was originally named the Australasian Army Corps. However protests from New Zealand led to the adoption of Australian and New Zealand Army Corps. Administration clerks found the title too long and adopted the abbreviation of ANZAC. 

3. “Lest We Forget” is a phrase popularized in 1897 by Rudyard Kipling, which was adopted as the final line of The Recitation along with the "Ode of Remembrance", taken from Laurence Binyon's "For the Fallen". 

4. In Tonga, Samoa, Cook Islands and Niue, ANZAC Day is also commemorated to honour their soldiers who participated to the campaign.

5. ANZAC Day is commemorated in France in the towns of Le Quesnoy and Longueval.
