The Fall ~ The Snake & Apple

Genesis 3

This chapter tells us how evil, pain and temptation entered the world. It explains why we have struggles today as women and men. Women have painful pregnancy and period cramps because of Eve’s actions. As for Adam he doesn’t have as much of a punishment, but they were both banned from Eden’s garden to suffer. The snake that tempted them lost his legs and now has to eat dust for as long as it lives.


Emily’s Phone📱

For our Mitey project we had to make a phone for a girl who has run away from her problems at home. We had to create what we thought her phone would look like and what she would have said before and after the problems have started. ( Just letting you know that on the slide where spotify is, the songs are linked. So feel free to press them and listen to what Emily would have listened to. )

Heaven & Earth 🌎

The circle in the middle is the Earth. The people on the right side with halos around their heads are the angels watching over us. The people on the left side represent those who have passed away but have made their way into Heaven. The heart is for God’s love on Earth. Lastly the Sun, Moon, clouds and lightening represents the creations and the seasons God has blessed us with.

Bake It Till You Make It ( Money Time )🎂

For our money time activity we had to apply for a job and write a cv letter. I chose to be a gardener, but we all sadly didn’t get accepted into the job. Luckily there was another option for us to continue our ‘career.’ That was for us to make our own business ad! I decided to create a baking business ad.

I first made my own advertisement to get customers. I asked my family and friends to help me with my new business by sharing to other people about my business to get customers or maybe even hiring employees?

Here is the advertisement that I created!

Clay/Pennies For Hitler

In room 8 we recreated a tragic scene from a book called Pennies For Hitler by Jackie French.  My group chose the scene where the main character Georg had to try and fit into a suitcase, he had to go to his Aunt Miriam and stay with her for a while because he was a German citizen that was a Jew. During those days Germans believed that Jews were bad people, they made up rumors that Jews were poisoning their food and all other stuff.  Our rationale for choosing this scene is it was the first thing that came to mind probably because it was so shocking It must have been hard for Georg separating from his  family. The part I enjoyed was when I got to paint the work that my group made.

Mission Day

Last Friday on the 23rd of September, it was Mission Day. First we went to the Liturgy and then we all had to bring a coin and each class had to put it in front of  the prayer table. After the Liturgy we all went back to class to do our tests, my class did a Te reo – a thon, later on we had to turn in our papers to our teacher, Mr.Bell. Then the bell rang for morning tea, during morning tea we had to buy as much raffle tickets as we could so that our name would be the common name that the teachers will pull out after school.


Following that we went to class and watched a movie called, Spirited Away which was 2 hours long, we watched the movie while Mr.Bell was marking our tests. Half way into the movie the bell rang for lunch, so we ate our lunch, bought some more raffle tickets and went in our bubbles to play some games. After lunch we went inside to quickly finish the movie before we went back to the canopy to do the raffle tickets. Later on, we finished the movie and went to the canopy for the teachers to pull out 3 raffle tickets. After they give out the prizes for the names that were picked, did our prayers and went back home.


Last week on Monday we got an opportunity to do some engineering activities for one week. Epro8 is a company that lets kids like us know how to create and measure. First we read the introduction in the book and did the first activity which was to make a crane. We read the instruction and watched the video to see an example of how they built their crane. It took us two days to finish it and it turned out much more better then we thought it would. We used a measuring tape, aluminum, red and blue joiners to connect the aluminum together, bolts to keep the joiners steady, ropes that could be the hook and two screwdrivers. When we were done Mr Bell our teacher was the judge and tested all of them nobody lost but some of ours broke so we carried on with another which was a bridge. The bridge was more harder than it looked like, we had to make sure it was the right length and width. Making this bridge took us three or two days to make. After we made a bridge we took it outside to record what we have done but then realised we needed a car we rushed inside the classroom and saw tyres inside the box so we made a car and tested our bridge outside. It turned out that all our hard work paid off and our bridge did not break like the last one. Our last one was a caveman car it only took us two days again but this time we needed rubber bands to help push the car more. After we made our caveman car we all had a race, pur one wasn’t fast enough and later on the rubber band broke. My team wasn’t upset because we had an amazing time doing Epro8 and we hope that we could do it again.
