Hi today I m going to talk about something really sad that I saw on the News and heard from some people it was something that happened in Tonga. People said that the Tongan Ferry had went deep down in to the water they also said that they went out into the water at around 11 pm at night. Wow that is a really late time at night to go out. The boat was only Thirty years old and it has died that is really sad . Well it also said that there were Fifty men's that were out on the boat and the mother and the children were inside sleeping. When I watched the 3 News it said that there were 64 people missing and 2 people were found dead. The boats name was princess Ashika she was a special boat to the Tongan people. I hope they find those people in the water. Oh and if any of your family members were on this boat please leave me a comment and tell me about how you feel and who that person is and if you don't want to tell me about it I will understand, Thank you very much. Oh don't forget a big Thank you to this website for this beautiful picture of Ashika and google images
Hi today I am going to tell you about the conference that the extension group had with a famous geologist and a paleontologist Hamish Campbell He works in a museum called Te Papa it is in the capital city of New Zealand,Wellington. He works with a lady called Diana-Grace she is a important person at the Te Papa museum. Hamish Campbell talked to us about the earthquake that happened in Fiordland. the earthquake was 30 second long.
He said that earthquakes a really dangerous because it can happened really quickly and we have no warnings that it going to happened but the most dangerous thing about it is that people can die. He knows this because in Tangshan,China 1976 their was a humongous earthquake that happened just in fifteen seconds and during that earthquake 242.000 people died in it and around 57.000 people were injured and that made us feel really sad. But in the Fiordland earthquake nobody died and it was longer than the China one. They said that the earthquake in Fiordland was also felt in New Plymouth.
In our first conference we were talking about the dinosaurs we were also talking about a lady that found the very first fossil in New Zealand her name was Joan Wiffen she is a really special person to New Zealand.Well unfortunately in this conference, Hamish Campbell said in a sad voice " Joan Wiffen as actually past away" that made us feel even more sadder she died at the age of 87 she was also known as the dinosaur lady. If you want to find out information about Joan Wiffen make sure you click onto Joan Wiffen's name and if you want information about Hamish Campbell click on to either of his name and you could click on Fiordland to find out about the earthquake.Thank you to Te Papa,Diana-grace and Hamish Campbell for that interview we hope you can conference with us again.Oh do you know what a seismometer is, it is a machine that records the earthquake here is a seismometer that I made with my friends Selena and Ala.
Last week in extension we had to do a animation about Little Red Riding it was the coolest computer work I have ever done this year I was excited. Then Mrs Tele'a told us to get in groups in my group was Ala,Selena and Blessing we had to break up the part in little red riding hood so we could make it easier for us. Then we had to choose who was going to draw what in my group we decided that in the first part that Ala will draw little red riding, Selena will draw the mother,Blessing will draw the basket and the sandbox and I had to draw the background. After that we got straight on to the second part on the second part Ala had to draw the background, Blessing had to draw the wolf and I had to draw the grandma's cottage.When we finished we had to do the but on the Third part my group was a bit sad because we didn't get to finish it but unless we got to finish the other part's.
