Team challenges

Today for the first session, we had to make a bridge out of paper that could hold the weight of a squishy dice. We had to work together with people we hadn’t worked with before to be able to communicate with them and accept others’ ideas while at it. We got different colored paper and started, our group had creative ways to build a bridge but it just didn’t work, so we just put the paper on top of the paper.

The next thing we did was we had to make a sky tower out of straw it was hard but we tried to make it look 3D and in these photos, you can see it looks like a house on the side of the cups. It took a lot of tape and effort, some of the straws fell as we tried to hold it up to stick together, then we had 1 minute to accomplish the tower we had to rush through it but made it at the end.

Finally, the last challenge was to stack up cups with string and rubberband without using our hands, we got different colored cups as a team each and worked together to stack one on top of another in the end we made it to the top and accomplished all three challenges!

In the end, this was all about teamwork and participation, including others that we don’t usually work with, and most importantly having fun!

 

The mother and daughter on the wonder ship

“Sleep well darling, as we will all be here when you wake up,” I told my daughter as the Titanic sank underwater. As the ocean pulled the Titanic down, teardrops fell I never thought about my death till now. I thought my child would live longer…till today took place in the calendar of the unexpected. As the ship sank creaking, screaming, and yelling were all I could hear, my child was asleep and I could start to feel the cold freezing water. “I’m sorry you had to die this way,” whispering to my daughter as we drowned with the Titanic.

Picture Story for homework

Story for homework, (Describing whats in the picture with 6 sentences)

 

As I walked down a sidewalk, I could see an elderly man sitting on a bench all by himself. As the snow fell I could see a bright red rose in his hands. He seems sad by the look on his fac, it was cold and misty I couldn’t bother to let him sit all by himself. I went to the elderly man and sat next to him. I didn’t know what to say. Staring ay the rose, he asked, “Have you ever lost a loved one?” I sat in silence for a bit then saying “Yeah..” as I thought about it the poor guy must have lost someone today. As he looked up in the sky he said, “My name is Chris” I replied with “and my name is Hannah,”  “Pretty name you’ve got,” Chris had said,” Haha thanks” I replied, “tonight looked beautiful don’t you think?” Chris had smiled and said “Thank you Hannah, you’ve really made me happy” As I turn to look over and see Chris was fading away. “Wait!” I exclaimed, “why are you dissapearing!?” As I tried to grab his arm he became transparent I sit in slicence looking to the sky and close my eyes sitting under the post lamps as the sun started to rise. as his soul flew into thee after life, he can finally be with his loved ones.

Going to KPMG

On Wednesday the 27th of July, exstention and chosen ones got to go on a trip to KPMG a building in Viaduct,Auckland. We were so excited and happy we got to go and we got introduced to the people that volunteered to stop their working at KPMG to show us what they do and what other people at KPMG’s work is. They told us that they worked with many bussiness places and that KPMG were just random words put together. We got to eat morning tea and lunch there, it was delicous,and we were happy that we got to eat the wonderful food made by the cook there. At the end we got to play with playh dough and got to animate it moving by taking photo by photo when it was 1:30 we had to leave the KPMG building saying goodbye to the lovely people that we met there, and they were nice and fun to meet, I’m glad I had this experience, it was wonderful and we got to keep the play dough and photos that we got there.

 

Thank you for reading this I hoped you enjoyed this because I sure did!
