Armistice Commemoration



Today Panmure Bridge held a commemoration for Armistice Day since it is on Sunday. Armistice day which is every year on November the 11th to mark and remember the sign between the Allies of World War 1 and when the gun fell silent. We celebrate this to remember those who fought for their country during World War 1. We were lucky to have a member from the NZ Defense Force. During this commemoration sang the pray at the start of the commemoration, Tiava and Jeremiah (head boy and head girl) read the oath, and Ms Kirkpatrick (deputy principal) read the poem about the Flanders Field. During the commemoration we were silent for a minute to remember the soldiers who died during World War 1.

Armistice collage

For reading we were learning about the Battle of the Somme that occurred on July 1st 1916. We first read a text explaining what happened during the war and a few facts about it. We read the text and answered the questions. We answered the questions about the war and got to write our own opinion about what we thought about the war. We have learnt that war shrines were like memorials made to remember the fallen soldiers.

How have camels adapted to their environment?

Did you ever wonder how camels adapt to their environment? Did you know that camels can drink up to 46 liters of water which is 46 of 1 liter coke bottles. The camels also has some special features they have webbed feet so the hot sand doesn't affect them.

The camel's environment is very hot and and the water is scarce which means there is not a lot of it so the camel has to go searching for cactus. The desert is usually 42 degrees hot. The camels lips a very useful because they are doubled.

These animals have double lips that helps them break open and eat thorns and cactus and others. The thorns and cactus do not hurt them because the camels lips have two layers. The camels eyelashes a very important because it prevents it from getting blind.

The camels have two eyelashes so the sand and dust does not get blown into there eyes while they are walking. The camels nostril can open and close the reason why it dose that is so the sand doesn't fly in.

Camels can go as long as a six or seven months  without drinking water, the camels webbed feet and pads is a major thing they have because if they didn’t have that webbed feet and pads their feet would burn and would not be able to walk over the terrain.

This Week for writing we write an explanation about Camels and how they adapt to
their environment. Before we started our writing we watch 3 video clips, we also got
our books because we needed it for our planning. I enjoyed writing this week because
I learnt about Camels and how they adapt to their environment.

Today for maths Mr Wong created a addition and subtraction challenge for our maths group using his smart coding skills to finish this. This maths challenge was very fun and tricky because we used all sorts of strategies to solve it, this activity is really fun and it also exercise my brain and makes it think. All the strategies I used went with the different numbers that came after. The point of the game is to solve all the question that it ask you and get to the end the fastest.
