The Moa

The Moa. There were nine species of Moa.The flightless birds were usually found around New Zealand bush. The two largest species were the Dinornis robustus and the Dinornis  novaelandiae. They reached about 3.6 meters (12ft) in height but with there neck outstretched and they weighed about 230kg. When Polynesians settled New Zealand in CE 1280 the population of the Moa was around 58,000


They were safe for thousands of years until the arrival of the Maori. They were only hunted by Haast's eagle. The Moa extinction occurred in CE 1440, primarily due to overhunting by the Maori. Scientist still this year are still trying to bring the extinct flightless bird back from its death and bring it back to life.

Bread!!!!

Today in room 2 we had Mrs Hurly and we made some Soda Bread and some normal White Bread.

Top- the white bread before it was baked

This was the steps to making the White Bread!

Step 1. We put in 3 3/4 Tablespoons of milk powder into the bowl

Step 2. We put in 4 1/2 Teaspoons of yeast into to the bowl

Step 3. We put in 3 3/4 tablespoons of sugar into the bowl

Step 4. We put in 3 3/4 of a teaspoon of oil into the bowl

Bottom- after the white bread was baked



Step 5. pour in 555mls of warm water and mix it in

Step 6. We added in 6 3/4 of a cup of flour and stirred it all in together

After we had poured in the flour we kneaded the bread by pushing your palm forward and pulling it back. It was soft and stretchy and we had no problems. It was very easy to make. we knew it was ready when it was soft and moist. After we had kneaded enough Mrs Hurly put glad wrap over top and put in a warm spot to rise.

Opunake Beach 18/12/15



                                         
Today just before tea Grandad, Georgie (My sister) and Caro (Me) went down Opunakes main beach.  Opunake is located in South Tāranaki, New Zealand (Aoteroa). First we went to the playground and went on the swings, slides and monkey bars. Then Georgie and I did some beach sprints because we do "Surf Life Saving". It's where you do Beach sprints, Beach Flags, Knee Boards, Body Surfing and of course swimming in the sea. Most of the times I won but sometimes my younger sister won . Guess what tommorow we have a carnival for surf life saving tomorrow in New Plymouth. Then Georgie built a sand castle and Grandada took a few pics of me doing some hand stands in different poses and while we were doing that they took the "IRB boat sort of thing and they are orange and green". Then Georgie wanted to go back to the playground so I waited in the car then we went back to Nanna and Grandadas house where mum and dad and my other sister was with the fish and chips for tea.

Horses


Regardless of a horse or pony's actual birth date, for most competition purposes a year is added to its age each January 1 of each year in the Northern Hemisphere and each August 1 in the Southern Hemisphere. The exception is in endurance riding, where the minimum age to compete is based on the animal's actual calendar age.

Colt: A male horse under the age of four. A common error is to call any young horse a "colt", when the term actually only refers to young male horses

Filly: A female horse under the age of four.

Foal: A horse of either sex less than one year old. A nursing foal is sometimes called a suckling and a foal that has been weaned is called a weanling. Most domesticated foals are weaned at five to seven months of age, although foals can be weaned at four months with no adverse physical effects.

Gelding: A castrated male horse of any age.

Mare: A female horse four years old and older.

Stallion: A non-castrated male horse four years old and older. The term "horse" is sometimes used to refer specifically to a stallion.

Yearling: A horse of either Female/Male that is between one and two years old

"My first event was the 75M and there were only three of us and I came 1st= with a girl called Kyrah".

  My sister had her 75M and she came 3rd. I had to wait till 12.15 for my 100 meter race and I got second in that and Kyrah won. My friends Jorja and Bethany's 100M was next and Jorja got 3rd and Bethany got 1st. Before we knew it , it was lunchtime. Time for a ice block.

         Then I was in the bagged 40yr relay with Zoe, Caro (me), Madaline and  Ellie. In that relay we got 2nd. In the 800M walk a person from my class called Quade got first in that race. The next race for me was the 200 meter and there was only two of us and Kyrah was in lane 2 and I was in lane 5. Halfway through the race I started to get the shakes and I was in the lead then before I knew we were at the 50 meter mark with 50 left to run and I could here every one screaming out go Kaponga and I go to Kaponga and I can't believe I won but it was a close race.
 
 My sister got 2nd in the 200m and she is only seven. Then we had the 4x100 relay and it was Zoe, Lilly, Sophie and Caro (me) we were in lane five again and we got second in that and I was proud of our team and my sisters team got third.
