Trees for survival

Trees for survival
40% of our land is covered with trees ,are with trees. Only 23.8% of data collected in 2012 and that's . If you cut all them down we won’t breath.You should only cut down the trees for a good reason,if you cut some down leave the some up.Because before you know it, all the trees will be gone and only house and buildings will be left. Some people throw the furniture out too and that's just a waste of the trees. We we learn to recycle things.

There were 2,700,192 cars in 2012, in Auckland so we would need to double the trees to collect all the Carbon dioxide that are produced by these cars. So we have enough oxygen to live. Some people call NZ the Green land because of our trees so if we want to keep it that way. we need to plant more trees.If people keep on cutting down trees all the animals wouldn’t have a place to live,they would need to keep on moving and moving until the people stop cutting trees,but that will never happen.

39.9% of the country is full with grassland. Housing is a problem in New Zealand. This makes it even harder because we need land to build more houses and it is also becomes very important to plant more trees.

So you should plant 2 each year.

The red tree

Image result for the red tree cover
Today I read book called The red tree by Shaun tan.
This book is about a girl that has a missy life and whatever that can go wrong will go wrong.Her city is really quiet and nothing is that good but at the end of the day there something good waiting for her.
I like this book because it’s different and it’s has so much detail but it’s really short.

A new word that I learnt was Inevitable.

Artists tell their stories through Art

Time With My Family
The Best Time With My Family
The first square is about me and my cousin having a great time dancing,singing and having fun.
Were (takaro)-playing,(kanikani)-dancing and making a great memory in our lives.

This is about me running (nohopuku)-fast and passing and having heaps of fun.
I like running and getting tries it makes me happy and makes me want to get more tries for the rest of the game.

Me and my family get together and have a great time,we do stuff each other and we always stay together.
We will never leave any one be a (whanau aroha)-loving family.

This is when I was a little kid travelling to Rotorua,we were singing,playing eye spy and (he wa nui)-having a good time.
We loved being together and we had some good jokes,we were having a great time.

(whakawhetai koe)

This book is about this boy who gets himself in trouble all the time.There a boy that tries to tears him apart and his names is Master Perry Crumble he never gets away with it so he keeps doing it until he does it.

Moment in time

Moment in time
Today at school when it suddenly a storm started.

The storms are strong as Neptune’s and they will never stop.
It is so powerful they could blow me away.
It’s so wild it could bust the city.
It could harm and hurt in it’s rage.

WALT understand that artist use colours to describe their feelings.

My subject is a parrot. Parrots inspire me because they want to be free from the pirates and the cages.They remind me of the time when I went to another country and when I was in the plane I could see the birds eye view. I have chosen a parrot because of their colours remind me of excitement that I experienced when I was travelling to another country.

I chose the colours,Green,Blue,White and Yellow,because parrots are a type of bird that are colourful. It represents my personality of being adventurous. Parrots also represent the joyous times of my life. I like to be with my whanau and friends like the parrots who flock together. I also love their freedom where they are not told what to do.

As the universe was involved so was land."I am Maui the TRICKSTER!!! and the POWERFULEST!!!.I am INCREDIBLY STRONG!!! and FEARLESS.I am MAGICAL!!!,BRAVE!!! and UNDEFEATED!!!".One day Maui said to his brother to paddle out to sea, out to ‘tounga ika’(where the big fish are). They paddle so far in the sea where no land was to be seen.

Maui grabbed out his magical hook that he craved from his great grandma’s jaw bone. He casted out his hook so... far, a few minutes or seconds it was able to get a really big pull. He pulled like he never had done in his life,all his brothers shouted ‘owear’(wow) “you got a humongous fish”. These huge mountains came out of the sea and made them stuck in a square. It got smaller and smaller at each second. Four Huge waves came and crashed and made a giant splash. Maui stood up and made everything clow and turn into grass,trees.It was magical.

One night they sale out into sea to visit there be loved earth mother. The sea was really rough it made their canoe stuck in these two huge rocks,one giant wave came and crushed the canoe. They climbed back on and stayed there soaking wet and frozen cold.

They turned into stone that made them into humongous mountains. There oldest and tallest brother became the highest peak. Out of all of them.

So that is the story about Maui and Aoraki.

I really liked learning about this story because it was really exciting and attempting to know more. I want to know more about all the maori traditional stories.

WALT describe our scene for our narrative.
The Beautiful Sun!!!

Image result for beautful beaches
The sun’s rays were reflecting on the the glistening waves.The crystal clear water crashed into the humongous rocks sounding like a big roar.
Far away I could hear the faint tweeting of the birds in the trees. The soft squishy sand under my feet felt great and I felt  the gentle breeze blowing my hair.

The waves crashed onto my cold feet and I smelt seaweed and salty water.

to have board games.
