My point of View On The Nigerian Kidnappings

The media has not done anything to help or change the situation in our perspective but the the boko haram they probably saw the thoughts and moved to another place. So, it doesn't look changing to us but it could change their location because on the media the president and that are predicting where they are so they move to another spot.

My main point is that the boko haram's perspective could be different to ours.

Why swimming is important in New Zealand!

It only takes small amount of water to drown someone

Statistics - drowning is the third highest cause of accidental/ unintentional deaths in NZ

81 drownings in NZ in 2013

Did you know that there were 81 drownings in NZ last year? Statistics say that drowning is the third most common cause of unintentional deaths in New Zealand.
So it is really important that everybody in NZ can swim 200 metres to be safe.

In New Zealand no one can live further than 80kms away from water. Many people drown in ponds, rivers, lakes, streams and did you know that even creek’s can be hazardous.` If you get caught in a rip current (a flow of water pushing away from land ) you just need to go with the flow until you stop and then you need to swim back to safety.

In conclusion water safety is very important in New Zealand.So make sure you can swim that 200m to be safe.

Level Up Esrah

This level up system is good so we know what we can do to improve my behaviour and there are three levels and level one: means I need to improve managing my self and to be cyber smart.
Level two: Means you can manage yourself but just a not perfect and you are cyber smart.
Level three: Means that you can manage yourself consistently in and out side of class and sit wherever and get your work done.

And I have chosen level 2 because I can manage myself inside class and I am cyber smart and get my work done but I just need to work on sitting with the right people and manage myself outside class and inside class consistently.So next I am aiming to get to Level 3

But I am working towards level 3 by trying to be good outside of class and choosing to work with  good work mates.

Quick Sound Facts

Sound can’t travel through vacuums. The loud noise you create by cracking a whip occurs because the tip is moving so fast it breaks the speed of sound. Link:'

Did you know: When a whale is underwater, when it sing’s, the sound of it’s song can travel up to 800 km.

Sound is....

Here is my groups first go at trying to explain sound.

Sound is simply vibrations, sound is started by energy or moving molecules. Sounds can be pleasant unpleasant, high, low, soft and hard. We use sound everyday for example we use sound to communicate, listen to music, or even stay safe(alarms).
