Taking Notes about Antarctic Seals

WALT- We are learning to summarise the main points of a paragraph.

Most of seals  are fast and Clumsy but slow and Clumsy. These seals haul themselves and they have Pups and give birth for them. These Seals and Pups are  graceful.
Seals are mammals that live in Oceans all over the world. All of the seals at Antarctica are Non-eared seals.
These seals have lots of blubber to keep them warm.

Seals have thick, short hair on their streamlined body, to keep them warm. They have flippers to help them be superb swimmers . Most of the time, seals are in the sea.

On Antarctica there are 30 million of crabeater seals and they like to lots of krills.

Leopard seals hut for penguin under water. Penguins is not afraid of leopard seals on the ice. But they are afraid underwater. But leopard seals can’t move well on land.

In Antarctica there are Weddell seals that seeped the hole time in winter and their only one that can stay in winter. Other seals are gone to a warm place to stay.

WALT We are learning to summarise the main points of a paragraph.

Seals are mammals that live in oceans all over the world.All of the seals at antarctica are non - eared. These seals have lots of blubber to keep them warm.

Seals have thick short hair on their street lined body to keep them warm. They have flippers to help be superb swimmers.They most of the time seals are in the sea.

Seals are fast and graceful in the sea but on land they are slow and clumsy. They haul themselves when they want to have a rest. But when they want to they lay some pups.
Most of the common seals are crab eaters there are 30 million of them. And they eat krill.

Did you know that leopard  seals can’t move fast on land? So penguins are not afraid of them but under water they are very afraid of seals.

When  winter comes in Antarctica the only seals that can take the. Coldness of winter

is the Wendell seal but the other seals are gone to find another place to stay.

Antactica Immersion Activities

Today, I watched a movie showing some scientists in Antarctica diving in the sea. Our teacher  showed us the data that they had collected. He showed us that the temperatures get colder and colder in the water and then it starts getting warmer and warmer as it gets deeper.

Will.I.Am visits Pt England School

This Morning after morning tea we had a very special assembly. The back door was jam packed with a lot of media. There were very very huge tripods, lots of microphones and a large Camera. We knew it was a special person but not his/her name.

We all became silent as soon as Mr Burt came. He started talking and said "who knows Black Eyed Peas?" And we all put our hands up and started talking about Fergue and Will.I.Am. Our whole school including the Manaiakalani schools remained silent and Mr Burt said "guess who..........Will.I.Am." Then we were all excited but he was still on his way.

There were Hallenstein posts on the wall. It is because Hallenstein Brother are the ones who payed Will.I.Am to come to our school. Hallensteins payed him a lot like for his flight.
I was just sitting on the floor but I saw some people walking up onto the stage. It was the Kapa Haka group and they were going to do a performance. But before they did it Patrick came in front of the stage and said a speech (Waiata).

The Manaiakalani schools even us were so exciting as soon as he came. Mr Burt introduced him to all of us and gave the mice to him so he can talk about his life. He said he was from Los Angeles and lived in a Government housing. His mum never had a job and he didn't know who his dad was.
Mr Will.I.Am came because he gave us a very special gift. It was a $100.000 card. We were so surprised and had to share our gift and so excited! It is his donate and his charity is called I.Am.Angled and he is Angled, amazing and gifted!

Iron swimming

These are my detailed sentences:

As I hopped into the pools, I immediately started to shiver and I stood frozen like an ice block.

We started with our hands at the bottom of the board and our legs kicking fast for a warm

While catching my breath, a bit of water went into my mouth and I choked.

Walking into the toilets, it smelt like chlorine and chemicals.
