SLJ Day 5 : Bonus Activity

Bonus Activity: Blade Runner 2049

blade runner.jpg

There is a new movie out in cinemas at the moment called Blade Runner 2049.

It is a movie about what the world will be like in the future. Imagine that you able to travel through time and that you can see what the world will look like in 2099.

On your blog write a description of what New Zealand will be like at that time (80 – 90 years from now). What kind of houses will people live in? What will they eat? Where will they work?

I think New Zealand houses would look more minimal and mostly be based on the color white. I also think more technology will be installed in our houses. And for our food I think we’ll focus on more healthier food.I think salads and other fruits would be the ideal meal for a whole day in the future. I think jobs in the future would offer more payment for those who work in the company.

On your blog please tell us which of the three cars you would choose and why.


I would take the big,black car because I think I would enjoy driving big cars.I also find my choice very classy and suitable for my ‘ kind ‘ of style because I find my choice not to extreme or not to simple. I think normal,big cars just suit me. It also would help when we go on family road trips.

I was gonna give her everything ( Oh Yeah )
From gold to diamond rings.
But it wasn’t good enough for her.
I guess it would’ve made things worse.
But I only wish that she could see.
How good things would be.
If she took a chance with me,baby
I promise you're never gonna leave
Don't you know your the apple of the eye
Angel from the sky
Dream come true,Girl it's only you.
Yeah you know your the Apple of the eye
Angel from the sky

So now your with another guy,
See you together the other night.
But when I look into your eyes
I see your not so satisfied,baby
But I only wish that you could see
How good things would be
If she took a chance with me ( Oh Yeah)
I promise you're never gonna leave.
Girl you know your the apple of my eye
Angel from the sky
Dream come true
Girl it's only you,baby
And you know your the apple of my eye
Angel from the sky dream come true
Girl it's only you
Girl you know your the apple of my eye
Angel from the sky

Girl it's only you,baby
And you know your the apple of my eye
Angel from the sky dream come true

Activity 2: Country Calendar

farmer.jpg

Did you know that the longest running television show in New Zealand history is a programme called ‘Country Calendar’? It started on 6 March 1966 and has been running ever since. The programme includes stories of everyday New Zealanders, many of whom are farmers.

Watch this short clip from Country Calendar. What do you think would be the most interesting and/or challenging things about being a farmer? Would you would like to be a farmer when you are older. Why/why not? Give us, at least, two reasons to support your answer.

I think the most interesting thing that could happen in the farming industry would be shaving the sheep because it's really satisfying how they shave the sheep.I think herding the animals would be challenging because a lot of help is needed when one of the animals escape.


I think I would enjoy being a farmer because it seems very fun.It also can be a challenge by handling different situations like training dogs to herd sheeps to farming some new crops to harvest.All this seems hard to handle but it would be a fun challenge.

Activity 1 : Moana

moana.jpg

In late 2016, the movie Moana was released by Disney. It’s a beautiful story about a young Polynesian girl from the fictional island of Motunui, who goes on a big adventure.

Watch the trailer for Moana and then write a summary of the movie on your blog. If you’ve seen the movie, you can include your favourite part! Tell us as much as you can about the movie. What is it about? Who are the main characters in the movie? What do they do in the movie? Where do they go?

Moana is about a young polynesian girl trying to convince Maui,the demigod of the wind and sea,to return the heart of Te Fiti.As she convinces Maui to return the heart many more people try to stop them creating setbacks on to there adventure,from warrior coconuts to shiny huge crabs,Moana and Maui still make it to Te Fiti saving all islands including Moana’s.

I’ll say my favourite part of the movie is the end,because they defeated all who were against them and returned the heart to Te Fiti.The song at the end ‘We Know the Way’ was also really cool. I really enjoyed the movie when I watched it because it had to show disney a different side of how the stories normally go in disney.I thought the producers and the people who made up ‘Moana’ was really creative on adding a polynesian princess onto the disney company.

 Bonus Activity: Modern Learning Environments

Over the past few years, a number of schools have changed the way that they teach. Instead of one teacher working in one classroom with one group of students, some schools have built huge classrooms where many teachers work together to teach a big group of students. This is called a ‘Modern Learning Environment’ (MLE).

Some people prefer Modern Learning Environments while others aren’t so sure. Take a look at the pictures above. The one on the left is a photograph of a traditional classroom, and the picture on the right is of a Modern Learning Environment.


Imagine that you are a teacher, and design your own classroom. What would it look like? What furniture would you have? I would love to have some beanbags for reading on.Draw a floorplan of your classroom (either in Google Draw or on paper) and upload it to your blog. Describe what is special about your classroom and why you designed it this way.

I’ve drawn a classroom with pink carpet and bright coloured tables. I also included a kitchen so that we can do cooking every day and a HUGE bookshelf because I love to read! What would you like to see in your classroom?

This is my Classroom which has two colorful tables,a bookshelf,a kitchen counter and a Toys and Games Box.I have a off white colored carpet.I added two tables so the kids can play on,I added a bookshelf so they can read the books and I also added a kitchen counter so we could cook amazing different types of food.There's also a box full of toys and games so the children can enjoy it.
