SLJ UV Wearable Design

 Welcome back or welcome to my blog!

This is my 16th Summer Learning Journey task! I had to design a UV Wearable. UV stands for Ultra Violet. UV is basically the different level of UV index and how bright and hot it is outside. I had to design something that can tell you what the UV level is and it has to be wearable! I designed this comfy, smart bracelet. The colour of the bracelet tell's you what level the UV is currently.

If you press the small black button then it shows you what you should do when you encounter that level of UV. For example, my bracelet is blue! This means if I press the button the bracelet will tell me that the UV level is very high and that I should proceed to stay inside! I think that if this bracelet becomes a real thing then I think it should cost around $70 dollars at the least and $120 at the most! That is unless they add some other cool things!

Please leave a positive comment :)

Red= Lowest Level
Orange= Low Level
Yellow= Low Level
Green= Both Low and High
Blue= High
Indigo\Dark Blue= Very High
Purple\Violet= Extremely High

SLJ Star Origami

 Welcome back or welcome to my blog!

This is my 11th Summer Learning Journey task! I had to make an origami paper star! It was sort of tricky but one tip for you (if you try make one of these) is that to get a paper around 25-30 CM maybe? I used around 20 CM and my star ended up pretty small. Here is the link to the video I used: CLICK ME!

SLJ Treasure Map Code (Kick Start)

 Welcome back or welcome to my blog!

This is my 8th task for the Summer Learning Journey! Today's task is to encrypt and decrypt a beach that is written in Pigpen cipher! I have never heard of this cipher before so it was pretty challenging to understand but I think i'm sort of getting the hang of it but not quite yet! 

Anyways, I did the kick start task and I am working on the step it up one! The kick start is the presentation below me and the step up was for me to write my own favourite beach but in Pigpen cipher... Let me know if you figure out what beach it is!

Optical Illusion SLJ

Welcome back or welcome to my blog!

This is the second task for the Summer Learning Journey and it was simple yet very fun! If you look at the illusion I made below, you can see 3 happy girls that are different heights.. or are they?
Truth is that, all 3 girls are the same height except the girl behind the first girl is placed higher. That goes for the girl in the back. She is placed just slightly higher then the middle girl creating this illusion.

Term 4 Reflection 2020

 Welcome back or welcome to my blog!

Next week is the last week of school for 2020! Everything has gone by so fast and Thursday is Prizegiving! Anyways, during this year the year 5 and 6 Extension also had a lot of fun! Today we had our Secret Santa and our share lunch! There was Cheetos, donuts, chips, french fries, fizzy drinks and more. Angelica got me for Secret Santa and bought me some yummy cookies and fancy chocolate! 

The year has been crazy- especially with COVID and stuff but we got through it by doing little things like staying home, washing our hands and wearing masks out in public. I am glad we are back at school and can learn face to face and enjoy being with our friends! 

This year has also been very fun because me and some of my friends are ambassadors! We didn't get to have many visitors because of lockdown but we still enjoyed the time we had to be ambassadors!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year :D

Creative Writing: At The Beach

Welcome or welcome back to my blog!

For today's writing, I had to write a story about being on the beach and my 5 senses. When I was writing I actually completely forgot about the 5 senses bit and just wrote an ordinary story but I hope you enjoy anyway! Also, this is just a narrative so it's all made up.

Please leave a positive comment and now let the story begin... :)


Nothing’s better than going for a midnight swim or just to walk around the beach at dawn. Well, maybe there could be things that are better than that like your friends and family, pizza, ice cream.. You get what I mean..

Anyways, today at dawn, me and my best friend, Jade were walking around and hanging with our neighbors dog because we had to look after it for the night so we brang it with us to the beach. It was supposed to be just the two of us but, we didn’t mind having a fluffy cute dog with us at all.

We placed our beach towels down on the sand and then we layed down on them. It was super peaceful until Max, (the dog’s name), barked because he was bored and wanted to have fun!

“What is it Max? We are trying to relax!” I said.

“Woof Woof!” Said Max as he lifted one paw slightly up and pointed  towards the sea.

“Well, if i’m correct you want to go to the sea right?” I asked Max.

“Woof!” Said Max with a smile.

“I’ll take that as a yes! Let’s go! Come on Jade!” I said.

There weren’t many people today which was good for us because it’s nicer. Anyways, we were already in our swim togs (me and Jade) so we splashed into the water with Max. The water was refreshingly cold in both a good and bad way.

“Hey Jade! Look behind you!” I said.

“Ok..?” Said Jade.

While she was looking around behind her I splashed some water on her!

“Oh your so gonna pay for that!!” Jade replied as she splashed a bucket of water at me.

“I’m gonna get you!” I yelled as I splashed her back.

We were having a great time and Max was enjoying it too. He liked getting splashed.

After a couple of minutes of splashing each other we decided to have a nice swim. So, we did exactly that and it was such an amazing experience. To my surprise, even Max enjoyed it and normally, he likes doing fun, adventurous things so it was definitely a bit unexpected when we found out Max actually enjoyed it!

“Ah, this is the life.” I said as I floated calmly on my back.

“Yes, it really is.” Jade replied as she floated on her back.

“Woof, woof!” Max said.

“It looks like Max is enjoying himself too!” I chuckled.

After about 10 minutes or so of calm swimming, we decided to just lay down on our beach towels. So I walked out of the water and layed on my beach towel and just relaxed.

Relaxing is good for your body weather your sick, tired or just feel like calming down. We relaxed for a good 20 minutes and then we made the decision to go back home.

Although the day had a lot of unexpected splashing in it, it was still fun and I am glad that we got to hang out together!

The end...

Art Alive, Term 4 Artwork!

 Welcome back or welcome to my blog!

Today, i'll be explaining my Art Alive (Toi Ora) art for this term! Today was the art exhibition so everybody had to have their art all finished and on display for the whole school to take turns to see! 
For team 4's art, we had to do 5 different patterns from 5 different cultures. Those cultures were Maori, Niue, Samoa, Tonga and the Cook Island's. It took a bit of a while to plan and to make but, I think mine is pretty cool! 

Please leave a positive comment :)

Maori Art Meaning: 

I chose to do this because the Ahu ahu mataroa shows talent and achievement specifically in sport but I still included this pattern as it still represents talent and achievement in some kind of way! I chose this pattern because I think that I am pretty talented and I have a bunch of amazing achievements in my life that I am very proud of!

And the reason why I added a single Mangopare in the center is because the Mangopare represents strength, leadership, agility, tenacity, unrelenting determination, courage, and wealth. I feel like i’m courageous and a leader and I feel like I have all the qualities that the Mangopare represents.

Niuean Art Meaning: 

Shark Teeth represent protection, guidance and strength. It also represents fierocity but, they are also symbols of adaptability in many different cultures. The Spearhead is a symbol that is used to represent the warrior’s qualities. Meaning strength etc I think. Both of those things sort of in a way, represent me! :)

Samoan Art Meaning: 

I chose the Turtle Shell Pattern because I love turtles and a lot of Pacific cultures have a symbol that’s a turtle. I also chose the Samoan symbol which represents Energy because I feel like I have a lot of energy. And, i’m pretty sure that the type of energy the symbol represents isn’t the type of energy I think it represents but, let’s just pretend that it does represent the energy that I’M talking about LOL!

Tongan Art Meaning: 

I chose 4 things that are important to me. They are, family\friends, church, culture and education! I had to draw three things that symbolize those things!

Cook Island Art Meaning:

I stumbled across this on Google and I thought it was really cool also, we don’t have much time to finish our art so I just chose this one. I am not sure what it means but I do know that it probably is important to the Cook Islands!
