Blood In The Bank - Reading

Blood In The Bank

Today I read an article about a girl that gave blood donations. Every two years the blood donation people would go to her school and set up a place where, people that are over 16 were allowed to give blood donations to save peoples lives. Before she gave her blood donation she had to fill out a form, so the doctors could see if she had any diseases, illnesses, or if she was taking any medication.
When she had finished filling the form out, the doctors would check it. When the finished checking it, they gave her permission to donate blood. First the did a blood test, they pricked her thumb. Next the nurse told the girl to lie down on a table. Then they would prick the girls arm so they can put a needle in it. Next they connect a tube to the needle so the blood would flow into a plastic bag. When that is all done the nurse places a sticking plaster over the wound. The girl gets to have a little rest and then a cup of tea and some biscuits.

A Big Audience!

On Wednesday the 8th of November Jessica, Meafou, Vaimoana and I went to the Hoytes Cinema in Sylvia Park. It was the Manaiakalani Film Festival! The Manaiakalani Film Festival is an event that happens every year! The point of the event is, every school in the Manaiakalani cluster make a film that has a message. We were representing our school, Ruapotaka. We had to leave school before everyone else because we had to represent at three different cinemas. We would have to go on stage and say a little speech, to give the audience a little hint of what our film was about.

We left school at 12:05 and got to the cinemas at 12:15. On the way to the cinemas we were being silly, and having fun. Just laughing our nerves away. Jessica was sitting next to the open window, and every time a person in a car went pass she would yell HI to them. Every time she did it, she got the same response. The response was, each person would look out their window and give Jessica a weird look. Every time they did that, we all laughed our heads off! As we got closer to the cinemas my heart pounded faster and faster. At that point I was sure the people round me could hear it too.

As we approached the cinema I started to feel very anxious. It felt as though the time was flying past. I couldn't wait to get it over and done with! We walked into the cinema and found our seats. As we took our seats Jessica and I watched the rest of the kids come in. The kids that were coming in were from all different schools. We were the seventh people to go up....the time had come, Jessica and I were walking up to the stage. The bright light was shining in our eyes. We both took a deep breath...

(Jessica) "Can you feel the love tonight!"
(Jessica) Isn't love just the best?
(Me) Well, besides all the lovey dubby stuff, what is the true meaning of love?
(Jessica) When you think about it, love...its everywhere
(Me) Hmm...I wonder what comes to mind when people think of love
(Jessica) I'm Jessica
(Me) And I'm Leanah
(Together) And we are year6 students from Ruapotaka School
(Me) Enjoy our film
Everyone started clapping. We walked off stage. Straight after we walked off stage, we had to go to our next cinema.

The last cinema we went to was the Luxury, in the cinema all the seats at the back were fulled with Tamiki College...I was anxious.
After we exited the cinema we took a photo in front of Hulk.

After it was all over we drove back to school, and said goodbye to everyone.
We had an awesome experience!

Winning Ways - Reading


My reading group Harry Potter, read an article about a young girl that studied hard on her exhibit, and won her science fair. This is a follow up that we have made. We collected data and put it together in a Google Drawing. The article was about tents and which peg was the strongest.

"Where Shall We Put The Turbine?"

   Today my reading group and I read an article about a school in Palmerston North, they were discussing where to put a turbine in the school. They had to do a lot of research, to find out where to place the turbine. In the end they figured out where to place the turbine, but it cost too much money.

My Goals...That I Have Achieved

These goals are from term one. This is a recap on my goals that I have achieved. I have achieved all of my goals...I am proud of myself. It was hard trying to achieve my general goal because I talk a lot, and I laugh a lot. It is just part of my personality.

Running Our Government...

Image result for Jacinda Ardern
I believe that Labour will run our government because Jacinda Ardern is going to help the housing crisis. She is also going to help the homeless into homes and her ideas are going to affect New Zealand in a positive way.
