was a problem to the maori. And the pakeha were doing bad things so the maori wanted a treaty.

How can we save money

          How can we save money
                                                   By Makayla

Money is precious. You would have the money but then again you wouldn’t.
Here are some tips on “How easy it is to save money”.

First of all one way to save money is to stick to budget. You should stick to a budget so that you
would only spend a certain amount of money. While on a budget its best to stay on the budget
always you will keep spending, and the level of your money will grow lower.

Another way to save money is to buy things you need instead of things you want. This will help
because, first of all it will save you money and when your broke then eventually you will still the
things you need. And plus the best things you will need in an emergency is essentials and that is
why you should by things you need.

Another tip is to Buy cheap things. So you can buy things you want but it will be cheap, So as a
result you will still have money. So it's best if you buy the cheapest version of the things you

My last tip is to sell the things you don’t need. For example you could have a garage sale and sell
all the things you don’t need. And there are two great reasons if you use this tip, such as you will
have more space in your house. And the second reason is you will still have enough money.

Swift playground reflection

While I was using Swift Playground I thought it was really fun. I learnt a lot of things like what Commands and Sequences are. Like first of all sequences are a order which the commands are given. I also learnt about commands which is something/someone tells you to do something and you have to do it. It’s kind of like instructions you have to do.

Final post for 2017 (from school)

Today is the last day we get to have our Chromebook at school for 2017. I have had an amazing year with my friends and teachers. I was in Mr Goodwin's literacy class and also his maths class. My highlights were Camp Bentzon and more. I loved camp Bentzon because I had a lot of fun and I loved the activities. Another highlight throughout the year was going to Stardome because it was really educational and fun. Next year I am feeling excited because I can't wait to be a Year 7 and also to be in the senior block. I am also excited to go to Rainbow's End for the Year 7 trip.

Thank you!

Walt: using descriptive language

Dear Helpers and Organisers, I would like to say a huge thank you for helping our school organise this event. I really loved this event and it was really fun. I tried my best and it was amazing, Thank you so much.

Athletics day was so wonderful and full of joy. I had so much fun spending time with some friends and teachers. It was so hilarious watching others try their best and start laughing. It was such a great and fun day, I loved it so much.

My favorite part was when we watched the kids, teachers and parents have a race. It was so funny watching everyone run for their team and run their fastest. I was cheering my friend Santana’s mum and dad on, because they were apart of the parent team. Me and Santana are in the same house color so her mum and dad were racing for our house color.

Next year I am really excited for athletics, because I really love all the activities. I am also really excited to cheer on my friend’s and teachers. I am so excited for what’s going to happen at next year’s athletics.

I enjoyed watching others try their best and give it a try. I also enjoyed all the activities at this year’s athletics, it was amazing. I learnt that I could at least try do as much as cheering others on, and that I could try and encourage myself as well.

Task Description:
For this task I had to write a thank you writing to all the organisers and helpers that helped us on Athletics day. Once I had finished I had to post it on my blog with a Title, WALT, Task Description and Labels.
