Democracy DLO

This is a flowchart about Democracy. First of all, we had to define the word democracy which is a form of government where some people are elected by the rest of the population to have supreme power over all. I learnt that democracy originates in Greece. I worked with AJ, CJ, Shannon, Fraidoon, Eric and Oh Hsen.

Cross Country

Last Thursday Panmure Bridge school went across the road to Dunkirk Park for our cross country. The youngest students went first with the older ones going last. Everyone ran in their year groups apart from the year five and sixes who ran together and the year seven and eights who also ran together. The year sevens and eights had to run five laps of the course. I managed to come first with my friend AJ.

The Princess Bride Character Introductions

In LS2 we have been doing a film study about the movie The Princess Bride. Once we watched the movie, I made a DLO about the character introductions that happen in the film. The character introductions are about the main characters who are Buttercup, Westley, Inigo, Fezzik, Vizzini and Prince Humperdink.

Finding Out About Coalitions

Today in LS2 we were learning about coalitions and how they can change/affect the elections. A coalition is an alliance which is formed between political parties. In the N.Z. election, Winston Peters (who is the NZ First party leader) basically decides whether Labour or National wins the election. So if he decides to team up with Labour, they will have enough seats to become the new government and vice versa for National.

eBook Day

Read an eBook Day

Today is eBook day and to celebrate I read an eBook called A Feast Of Dragons. The book is about a boy called Thor who goes on a ship with other boys his age to a island training camp that is infested with dangerous creatures and is near a dragons home. Thor and his friends have to survive the island and the dangers it brings, not to mention the deadly dragon that is living nearby. We read our eBooks on the Tamaki College Overdrive. If you want to read your own eBook here is the link: Tamaki College Overdrive. #EBOOKLOVE
