The Human Chicken-leg effect

First week back to school! and literacy still going. This weeks reading activity was
about the "Chicken-leg Effect". After reading this article, I learnt that when there
is no gravity on earth, lifting something heavy won't make us stronger. Because it
is floating. I also learnt many other things but the fact that I was mostly interested in
was that when we are asleep and our body is flat, 80% of our blood from our legs go
up to our upper body and mostly end up in our chest. Go through this presentation to find out
more about this activity.

Polynesian Navigators Animation

Taunese As I see it from Team 4 Pes on Vimeo.
This term our whole school theme was As I see it. Team 5's focus was about our old Polynesian Navigators. First we started of with learning some facts about the great navigators. We then had to create an animation showing what we had learnt. In this movie the Polynesians wanted to go off and find new land where they would have more space and freedom. To find new land they would look up in the skies during night and follow the stars.  Check out my movie to find out more about the Polynesian Navigators.

All About Milo of Croton

Have you ever heard of a famous athlete named Milo of Croton?
He is a famous athlete wrestler back in the days when the Olympics first started. Milo won the boys wrestling 6 times in a row victory. He also won 7 crowns at the Pythian Games at Delpie. Milo was known by getting told to carry a bull on his shoulders with his veins being burst out. He was also a life saver, he saved a philosopher's  life when a roof was about to fall on him, but Milo saved him. Milo then married the philosopher's daughter Myia. Milo's deaths date is still unknown but there was a story explained that Milo was told to tear a tree with his bear hands. His hands got stuck in the trunk and couldn't get any help. Some wolves appeared and attacked him. If you want to know more about Milo of Croton click here to know more.

Sky City

Last week on Friday Khaia, Mose-my coach, Tony Khaia's-dad and I went to the Sky City grand hotel. We were invited to the Mystics dress presentation. While we were waiting in the hotel entrance, someone from the Mystics management team came and helped us  find our way to the room where the presentation was held. While we were in the elevator going up, the doors opened and 2 tall girls walked in. I didn't recognize them because they were dressed in sports clothes. When I took a close up look, I didn't believe it, it was Maria Tutaia and Holly Fowler. They were so tall that they had bend their heads when they walk through. The Management helper asked where they were going but they said that they came to look for us.
Then we went up 1 level, Khaia and I didn't say a word when the talented players walked in.

 We then walked together in their special team meeting room and we saw Michaela Sokolich Beatson on the couch watching television. It was a small room, Khaia and I sat on the 2 chairs by the couch while Tony and Mose made themselves a cup of water like it was their home. The management helper told us to wait for the players to come in. While we were waiting the players walked in and saw us sitting in the room. Once we all greeted each other the presentation was soon starting. Then the Mystics coach Debbie Fuller once again introduced us and invited us go up and make a speech. It was so awkward that I finished my speech as clear and fast, then I relied on Khaia to finish us off.

Once we were finished the Mystics also invited Mose up to make a speech about him coaching a girls team. Mose made a speech about him taking over our team when our loving coach has past away. Then it was time for Khaia and I to present their dresses to each player. Khaia presented the dresses to, Michaela Sokolich Beatson, Kayla Cullen, Fa'amu Ioane, Nadia Loveday, and Anna Hillson. I presented the dresses to Maria Tutaia, Catherine Tuivaiti, Megan Craig, Serena Guthrie,  and Holly Fowler. For the Mystics gift to us they have all signed a Mystics training shirt and presented it to us. It was time for us to return to Glen Innes but before that we took some photos with the Mystics, Here are some photos.
