Brushing your teeth

Intro: What is brushing our teeth

To begin with brushing your teeth, grab your toothbrush and your toothpaste put them both in your mouth and brush the outsides, front of your teeth, the inside and your tongue. You should be brushing your teeth twice a day, once in the morning straight after breakfast and again after dinner.

The real reason why you have to brush your teeth is to prevent cavities you need to get rid of plaque and bacteria covering your teeth. To remove all of that the best way to treat it is to brush your teeth and to floss at least once a day. Sugar is bad for your teeth because it makes decay. And the results of decay makes holes in your teeth. In our teeth fall out which means that you have to go to that dentists.

Why you need to brush your teeth is because, when you are eating the germs go on your teeth, then when you eat sugary food it equals to acid, and when that acid goes onto your teeth is becomes decay.

Bastion Point


This week my reading group have learnt about Bastion Point. For many years there was an argument between the Government and Ngāti Whātua about who owned the land. This is my DLO about what I learned.

Questions and Answers


What is Bastion Point?
Bastion Point is a section of land that the iwi, Ngati whatua, gave to the government.

Why did the British and Maori have different ideas about who owned the land?
The british wanted to buy land so that they could settle in New Zealand but they were actually buying more land than what existed in New Zealand.

Why did Ngati Whatua let the government use the land at Bastion Point?
Because the iwi (Ngati whatua) were happy to share their land with british but they did not have the same idea about the ownership.

Who burnt down the marae at Bastion Point?
The government burnt down the Bastion Point along with the houses near it. This happened in 1952 because (in the government's words) he explained that they did that because they were preparing for Queen Elizabeth’s (II) visit.

What does the word profit mean?
It means that when the government sold the gifted land he was earning money.

Do you think the police or the protesters were doing the right thing? Why?
I think the protesters were doing the right thing because they could have encouraged the government to give the land back to the Maori

What is your opinion about this issue?

My opinion is that the government should have just kept to their deal and given the land back to the Maori, but then I probably wouldn’t be here or even have or known my family especially my father, my Non, (grandma) my siblings and the rest of my family. So at a time i am also thankful that it happened.

King and Country ~ Comic strip

Kiwi Can

On friday the 25~8~17 I was in room 9 and we went to kiwi can to learn about self control. When we got to the room 11 door Miss toiya came out and welcomed us into the classroom.

When we went to the room where kiwi can people teach, we sat in a circle and Mr Numia, (Kiwi Can teacher) gave a greeting in a different language and we had to try and guess where the greeting comes from. Then we had our energiser and what you do to play the game is you have to have a ball and you have to spread your legs forming a triangle shape. What you have to do is roll the ball under someone’s legs to get them out and then you can move in and fill the gap where the person was. Then we were talking about what that game was helping us with involving self control and the same with our activity. In our activity we had to dance to music and when the music stops you have to sit quickly and fold your legs, the last person that sits down and doesn’t fold their legs they are out!

At the end of our lesson i felt happy because it was fun learning about all the things about self control and of course playing the games was fun!
