Massive Volcano Erupts In Mexico

Today the Popocatepetl volcano in Mexico has erupted, throwing ash, water and gas into the air. The eruption has made an ash cloud that reaches 2,000 metres above the volcano's crate. That’s more than five times the height of the Empire State Building in New York!. A huge crater is created on top of the volcano after the first eruption blows the top of it off.  People living nearby have been given advice about how to protect themselves from the ash.  There are more than 3,000 volcanoes in Mexico, but only 14 are considered to be active.

When you get bitten by a pests

WALT to explain what happens before and after you are bitten by an insect.

I heard a buzzing like a mosquito. It zoomed across my face as if it was a flash of lightning. I tried not to move so it wouldn’t bite me. Then it went around me a lot of times like a roller coaster. I started to worry because it would bite me if it landed on me.

Firstly when you get bitten you start to itch a little and you might think that the bite is infected like as if it was carrying the zika virus or other viruses. It is painful to get bitten by an insect. Did you know why they bite you? They bite you because we humans are warm blooded and they like warm blood.

Secondly mosquitoes have six legs so three legs on each side. Mosquitoes have a very skinny body. Skinny like your our small finger. They are so small you can’t even see them. Mosquitoes have a small body but a large face.

Thirdly how to prevent pest from coming to your house? Don’t leave the doors open for too long especially at night because mosquitoes and other insects can come into your house.

Keep doing it and you’ll have a self and healthy home!

What's the time?

Hi! today I was checking if I could tell the time and the results were that I can read time. If you can not read time then you need to ask someone to teach you how to  read the time or practice at home.

My school life

Hi my name is Tupou and I am in room 10 at Ruapotaka Primary school. I am 9 years old and I am the oldest granchild in my family. I feel happy to be back at school because I didn't do much at home during the summer holiday. I am enjoying swimming right now because we are learning new skills that will help us be confident swimmers in beaches, pools and other swimming places. I like maths because I learn how to use different strategies to solve one problem and when I get the answer right it makes me proud. I am excited for the rest of the year!
