Deavays maui and the sun

Blurb: this is about the Maori legend called maui and the sun

Insect vs spider

Walt: writing about our spider and insect

In the middle of the forest, up in an tree the burial is enjoying eating bugs but out of the corner of it's eye it can see an spider just staring at the buriel without moving. The blue back spider backs away only to jump back at the buriel trying to grab it but the buriel gets out of it's way. The buriel charges at the blue black spider and rams it with his horn knocking each other off the tree.

Both of them fall to the ground but the spider grabbed on to something and the buriel just fell to the ground horn first. The buriel struggles to get it's horn free while the spider falls and rushes towards it's. The spider knocks it off it's horn allowing the burial to smash it's horn on the spider.

The buriel smashes it's horn into the spider making the spider weak than the burial stings it too kill it. The buriel started eating the spider. all that's left of the blue back is the blue blood on the ground. The buriel climbs up the tree only to be eaten by a bird.

Mosquito sentence

Walt: explaining a bug
Mosquitoes are a tiny stinging insect but a big nuisance. Female mosquitoes bite everywhere they go. The are annoying bugs that suck our blood, like a tiny Vampire. They make us itch, like we are dogs with fleas. Mosquitoes are a doctor’s worst nightmare because they spread disease.

second camp 2017

Have you been on an camp trip before? Well I have. We had to bring an big bag full of cutlery bowls and plates other stuff and a sleeping. We did all sorts of activities and one of them were kayaking and we also went to the pools.

Camp is something that only year six and fives do and we sleep in tents on the rough ground (It was very uncomfortable) and do fun things. We sleep on our school fields and we get our own tent with other people. We stayed at school for three days and was at Pt England 2017 week 6. Our activities were kayaking, killer zone (it's a obstacle course), get lost, youth town and other.

Going to the pools was one of my favorite parts because it's was fun swimming but it's was cold but still fun. Another fun activity was kayaking because it's was my first time doing it's but it's  was really fun and cold. My last favorite one was youth town it was challenging because their were two team's but the team I was in lost and it's was hard.
I want to thank everyone that help with camp like the team four teachers and our parents for paying for camp. I also want to thank our leaders for trying hard to make our team win (presidents) and I want to congrat the sheriffs and principals for coming 2nd and 3rd. I really had lots of fun at camp but it's was the last time we did it's but we got year 7 and 8 camp next year.

At camp you will need a lot of teamwork because it's will work better with hard activities like with killer zone and youth town. I think the year fives and sixes should do this because this was an really fun thing to do and you will see what it's like sleeping in a tent. The hard thing about camp is paying and getting everything for camp.

2017 camp

To more days before camp and i'm excited for it. I really want to watch the movie that I voted for and I hope it's doesn't rain like before so we don't get wet or have too wake up at 3:00 in the morning. I'm nervous about kayaking because I don't know how or what to do but it's still will be fun anyways.

The things i'm excited about is the movie, it might be a movie I haven't seen before because there's only 1 movie I haven't seen. Another thing i'm excited about is the pool where going to I have been there before it's really fun but it's really cold and there's an volcano and to slides. There are two pools a indoor pool and an outdoor pool the indoor one is warn and the other pool is cold, and thes a water park.

I'm hoping for camp to be warm and sunny because it's been really cold lately and cloudy. I'm hoping we could do the kayaking because last camp my team couldn't do because the tide wasn't in and because it's was cloudy.

Something i'm nervous about is our camp dance because it's very weird and hard but we have a good chant. The group i'm in is called the presidents and i'm with three friends and I hope we don't get the least points. I don't know what things were going to do but I really want to make a fire and cook stuff again.

Deavay native birds writing

Walt: write persuasively.
Why do we need more birds in tamaki and what kind of birds do we need? We are losing or getting more of a bird, that we may or may not like. Some birds are dying because of what we do like littering or hunting because birds don't know if rubbish in the water is edible or not so they.
Image result for kiwi
I think we need more kiwis because there are 68,000 kiwis but you think we don't need anymore but we lose 2% of them so we lose 20 per week. After many weeks we will lose our kiwi and they will go extinct. Some people are trying to save the kiwis by breeding them and protecting them. There are 5 kinds they are the rowi, brown kiwi, great spotted kiwi/roroa the little spotted kiwi, and the tokoeka. Threats to chick kiwis are stoats and too adult dogs so when you walk your dog and see a adult kiwi make sure you keep control of the dog.
Image result for bellbirds
I think their should be more bell birds because rats and stoats keep their numbers low and because they can be found in forests with low or no predators. You can help the bell birds by not throwing rubbish in waterways or storm drains and restore the bell bird habitat or take it's in feed it's well and keep it's in when it's night. You can also set traps for stoats and rats.
Image result for magpies
We shouldn't had magpies because they eat bird eggs and chicks because they are omnivores. Magpies eat beetles, seeds, berries, small mammals, small birds even reptiles. A way to protect little birds chicks, and bird eggs are too put shiny stuff near them because magpies actually don't like shiny stuff but it's believed they steal them for their nest. Magpies are also closely related to crows,jays and ravens and magpies recognize them self in mirrors.

I think it's would be better if we could see more of the kiwis and bell birds and less of magpies because bell birds are heard before found because they sing. Kiwis will go extinct after an couple of weeks and bellbirds are only found on pest free island. Magpies eat almost anything so it could wipe out the kiwis but that's just an suggestion so it probably can't. I hope you enjoyed and tell me what's you're favorite bird and what you want too see more or less of.    

Task description: writing about birds we want and birds we don't want. Telling the reader why we should or shouldn't have those birds. Sharing information on the birds we write about and writing different kinds of bird species.
