The election for 2017 has been going on for couple of months. Us as children are not allowed to vote until we are the age of 18+. Instead of waiting till I turn 18,I have given reasons on why I vote for who I vote and that is Labour. I have given a few statements on why I have chosen Labour. In my DLO (Digital learning object) you can see some of the policies that Labour is promoting.

This term I have been learning about animals the zoo. I am going to explain to you why I think animals should not be kept in a zoo.
Firstly I think that animals shouldn't be kept in the zoo because zoos cannot replicate nature. They should be in the wild, free and allowed to go anywhere they want too. Zoos don’t do this, they keep them in cages instead. Animals don't have enough privacy to breed in zoos, to do their business, to eat and to do what they want to do. When they don’t listen they get abused by the zookeepers. *Also known as animal abuse.*
Secondly, I think that animals shouldn't be kept in the zoo because the zoo only wants the money. When a animal is a baby the zoo uses it for the money. When the animal is grown up they either kill or sell the animals because they don’t attract many people as they did when they were a baby.
My third reason on why I think that animals should not be kept in zoos is because animals in the zoo are endangered. Most animals in the zoo have a smaller life span then the animals that live in the wild. Some animals have died from eating rubbish that people have thrown in their cages. This leads to food poisoning and death.
These are my reasons on why I think animals should not be kept in zoos.

As I crept slowly behind the rim of the other side of the dark tunnel I turned my head clockwise to see nothing but pitch black. I put my hand inside of the tunnel as if I was going to grab something from the high shelves in the store. Cobwebs and baby spiders was what I pulled out as I pulled my hand closer to myself as if I was holding a newborn baby. I heard noises coming from the other end of the tunnel. I wanted nothing more but to see what was on the other side of the dark tunnel like a baby when it's hungry and it see its bottle. Goosebumps race across my body as I feel a wind, as if someone was breathing on me. I crept into the tunnel as slowly and as carefully as I could without making a noise. I gripped the rim of the other side of the dark tunnel. It had lead me to a dark forest with trees and fog in every direction.

This week in maths I learnt how to use a talking frame. I also learnt about equivalent fractions and simplifying fractions. One of the talking frames I learnt was "If you want to simplify a fraction, you have to look for the lowest common multiple or the most common factor that you can divide by the Numerator and the Denominator. Another talking frame I learnt was "Equivalent fractions are the same number/value but it is put into a different form".

My hair is rough like the husk of a coconut. My voice is as loud as the choir singing in the church. My eyes reflect the light coming from the sunset. My skin is as brown like that palm tree trunk that reach over me when I walk outside.
My feet sinks down into the soft green grass every time I step out the door. The hot wind blows my hair back and forth. Trucks go past blasting music louder than a lion's roar. Village people carrying baskets made from long palm fronds across their shoulders.
The sounds of animals rings through my ears as I walked pass derelict houses abandoned by owners may be through tribal wars. The aroma of freshly cooked umu food causes my nose to twitch. Roasted pork, still on the burning fire, leaves my mouth watery as I would savour just even the slightest drop of water.
Tired from walking in the hot rays of the sun, I stop to catch my breath, faster than I could catch a ball. For a moment it feels like the sun peeking through the clouds. Then I thought “What a magnificent and beautiful place Samoa is.”

Full of excitement and wonder my heart was pounding as I entered the TakiTumu Reo. As I walk inside of the kindergarten I see smiling little faces on each child's face. I see children running, dancing, singing and playing with toys. I see the beautiful Cook island dresses that they wear. I hear guitars, drums and little kids singing. I thought that today was a wonderful experience about the Cook Island culture. I experienced the language, the dancing, the songs, the instruments and my favourite the food. I felt proud to hear the history of my culture. I loved the different kinds of Cook Island foods that was prepared. I also thought that I learned a good amount of knowledge about the Cook Islands.

- #Keep New Zealand Beautiful
Dawn breaks on Day #7 – the final day of your Great Kiwi Road Trip. You wake up early, ready to make the long trek back to Auckland. Along the way, Curious Kiwi stops at two beautiful places, Taupo and Rotorua, for you to get out and walk around.
Activity 1: While in Taupo, you go for a walk around the lake and you notice pieces of rubbish floating in the water. You also notice that there is rubbish on the footpath. As you know, it is really important to put rubbish in the bin and keep New Zealand clean and beautiful for generations to come.
With that in mind, it is time think about what you can do to keep New Zealand beautiful. Use your imagination and come up with three things that you could do to make your neighbourhood more beautiful. Post your list on your blog ☺
- I would do is make a group in my neighborhood and every 4th Saturday we clean our neighborhood. Go around picking up rubbish.
- Create a group or gather as much people as I can get. Each person has to at least collect 15 pieces of rubbish.
- Create a garden or if you have already have an garden, plant more flowers to increase the look of your neighborhood.
Activity 2: After you have finished up in Taupo, it is time to hop back in the car and head for Rotorua – a town where will have the chance for some much needed rest and relaxation. In fact, you will visit the Tarawera Bush Pool – a geothermal hot pool that is located in the middle of a forest. The warm water in the pool comes from underneath the ground. After a few hours in the pool you feel really relaxed.
On your blog, post a picture of yourself doing something relaxing. I find reading really relaxing. Here is a picture of me reading one of my favourite books!
After a long soak in the natural hot pools, it is time to get back home. Your family and friends can’t wait to see you and they can’t wait to hear all about your adventures. Take a moment to think about what you have seen and done over the past week.
