Giants Among Us

I haver just learned that New Zealand has a really special environment. Many of the plants and trees found in New Zealand are not found anywhere else in the world. These plants and trees are endemic to our country.  In New Zealand one of the largest and longest living endemic trees is the NZ Kauri tree. Kauri are mainly found in three regions of New Zealand: the Coromandel, Auckland and Northland. The largest Kauri tree in the country is in the Waipoua Forest in Northland. It is called Tāne Mahuta. Some people refer to it as the ‘Lord of the Forest.' and I would like to visit it because I want to see how big is it.

The legend of new zealand / Kiwi

I just learned the kiwis have hebits and physical characteristics  are so like a mammal the bird is sometimes referred to as an honorary mammal. and also

i learned that kiwi were new zealands birds and they also lay eggs. Kiwi are ratites. The closest relatives to kiwi today is the elephant bird from Madagascar. They are also related to emus and cassowaries of Australia, and the extinct moa of New Zealand. Once there were about 12 million kiwi, but because predators eat so many chicks, there are now fewer than 100,000.

might be a world that has too much Technology. I think that there is going to
be not that much learning then now because there is going to be new
Para 1: The environment in 2048 is going to be maybe a good environment
because there might be some new technology that can help us keep our world
a better place for the animals. And there is not going to be not that much rubbish.

Para 2: Technology is going to be a big help when it is going to be 2048 because
it will help us with our work or it will help us by keeping our environment clean.
and there might be flying cars and the flying cars might help us go to work faster.

Para 3: Education might help you get a good life when you grow up and education
will be also a hard thing in 2048 because if you don’t have a good education you
might have no money or you might be homeless or you might not have a job.

are going to be a lot of new technology that can help you and you might have a
good education to have a good job and also there might make new money.

On Monday our teacher Ms Tapuke split the class into two groups. My group was Latitude and the other group that worked with us was Cartesian. We had to solve this Maths equation.

Different tribes celebrate Matariki at different times.  
To some tribes the new year in mid-winter was signalled by
the dawn rising of Matariki (the Pleiades), while to others it
was the rising of Puanga (Rigel in Orion). For many iwi the
appearance of Puanga in the night sky signalled the start of
winter. Puanga was said to be one of the parents of the climbing
plant puawānanga.

Child Hunger in NZ

Child Hunger in NZ
Adapted from “Child Hunger” by Ryan Laatz

Have you ever had to look into the eyes of a child and tell him that there is nothing to eat tonight?
This is reality for around 15 million children in America every day. This is also a prominent issue in
New Zealand, where one in seven families live in poverty and 220,000 children go hungry. This means
that they are missing meals or going the whole day without food. Without getting the proper nutrition,
these children are not able to fulfill their potential and may be affected by poor health and a lower life expectancy.

Why does child hunger happen? Child hunger happens because children simply don't have the resources to
get food. About twenty two percent of children in New Zealand live in poverty. Also about children two
percent of kids in New Zealand  are hungry. Do you see the similarities between those numbers? Impoverished
parents have a harder time providing for their families than those in higher paying careers. There are so many
costs that parents have to cover such as rent, medical bills, clothes and power, there is often very little money
left to pay for food. As the children are too young to work, they are not able to help their families or to buy their own food.

Why is child hunger a problem? Child hunger is a problem because it is not letting kids fulfill their full
potential. Kids are still developing, and if they don't eat enough, their brain and their bodies won’t be
able to completely develop. The feeling of hunger can also affect the child’s mood; they can feel stressed,
anxious and lack concentration. These factors will then prevent students from concentrating on their learning
at school and from having the energy to participate in sports.
This means that impoverished children are less likely to graduate from high school or university
and then it can be difficult to find a well-paying job. In this case, the child may then go on to be an impoverished adult.

Are there any solutions? While there is no easy fix to this issue, there are some things that people can do to help. One solution that we could do to solve this problem is to volunteer at charities and
organisations that support children. For example, you could volunteer at ‘Eat my Lunch’. Eat my
lunch is an organisation that delivers free school lunches to children who would otherwise go hungry.
Another way to help is that you could also start a food drive. You could organize a fundraiser of some
sort, and instead of charging money to attend you would ask for canned food donations. With all the
canned foods you get, you could donate all of them to a children's food shelter.
  Child hunger is a major issue that the government and New Zealand society must address.
Children in New Zealand aren't fulfilling their full potential and showing the world what they can do.  
Child Hunger is happening everywhere, impacting everyone, and it's happening because children simply
don't have the resources they need. How does it feel when you are hungry? Try being hungry everyday as a seven year old.
