Crab hunting

Crab hunting all started with the children from Room 11 walking to the beach. Once were on the rocky shore we started tracking down crabs. Luca and I found a jellyfish floating in a rock pool. I felt nervous at first, but then once we started feeling it, I felt excited. We raced to get some friends and ran them back and showed them the jellyfish.

Then we ran to the sand down the other end of the beach and started the sandcastle competition. I created a big castle with a moat around it. Then we made rock cairns, which are like a rock castles, as the next competition. Luca and I found a tennis ball and made a big pile of rocks using the tennis ball like a flag on the top.  

All I thought of as I walked back to camp was the great fun I had had that day.

Halswall Quarry

Today at Halswell Quarry I took this picture of all the different rock. We learnt how park rangers look after the park and all about the rocks. 

Adventure

It all started with Sam saying to Bob “Let's go for a walk in the woods”. They followed the track but then the track stopped and they were lost. 

Day 69 
“We are still struggling in the woods, still going to die. How will we get out alive?” Sam said to Bob.  “We won't but we might if we can go rob some food from someone”.  “How will we do that?” “Go on an adventure to find some, it will be fun”

Day 100 
“We are still here we are never going to get home” cried Sam to Bob. “We could if we run super fast home”.

Bobby

Bobby Bill Blue’s hair is black and short, he is 6 foot tall and very strong. He plays football for England and he is number 10. It is a magic shirt because he can teleport. When he plays football for Man City he is number 7.

His behaviour is very naughty. He hangs out with Joe Hart and James Millner. He meets them in a secret place behind a bookcase at his house, because they are not allowed to be together.  One of his interests are to collect football cards, his favourite card is Messi and Pilie. His favourite magazine is Match of the Day. His favourite club is Barcelona. He gets very angry when Barcelona lose. His favourite player is Messi.

His accent is German. When he knows people he will not stop talking to them but, when he doesn't know people he will not say a word. He usually speaks with a loud voice as he is often excited or annoyed.

Bobby is mean to his friends. They get angry with him because when he is silly he makes jokes about his friends that they don't get, so they think he is evil. He lives in a mansion made out of shiny gold, it is tidy inside. He is rich because he has a robot. The robot is old and he will do anything to help people.

Riccarton Bush

On Wednesday we went in to Riccarton Bush. It feels good to do something different. We had 10 different trees to find then we had to find the English names for them. I took 1 photo. I took this picture to remember my trip to Riccarton Bush.

Stereotyping Explanation

Stereotyping is a rude way to think and say what groups of people are when they’re not.

Here are some examples of stereotyping:
 
‘All Indians work at KFC.’ I disagree with the fact because all Indians don't  work at KFC because KFC is a very easy job to qualify for. They work in a range of jobs.

Another example of stereotyping is ‘fat people can’t run.’ I disagree because they can run just not very fast and it is because of their weight. Some fat people can run just not as fast as others. 

Here is our final example of stereotyping - ‘All girls like pink and all boys like blue.’ I disagree because I know some boys that don’t like blue and some girls that don't like pink. 

Overall I believe stereotyping is an unfair statement and sometimes it can a be rude way to put someone down and make them feel bad.
