1 paragraph.
Why we have day and night?

Something you need to know that Earth's southern hemisphere is facing to the sun so that means that the northern hemisphere face to the moon. Did you know that earth is tilted just a little.

2 paragraph.
Did you know that earth’s rotating on its axis which creates day and night and earth is tilted so one of the part of earth is leaning to the sun and the other side is facing away from the sun so that means we all get different amount of heat and sunlight.

That is takes earth 365 days or rotation to orbit the sun.

First Panmure Bridge

Middle school at Tamaki Primary went to the yacht club to view the site of the old swing bridge that was the first Panmure Bridge to be built.

The first Panmure Bridge was made in 1950.
The first bridge that was made in Panmure was made out of wood.
The first bridge which is the swing bridge was demolished because it was to old for the people to walk on or drive on.
Every farmers goes and crosses the Panmure bridge to go to Pakuranga to buy seeds for their plants.

The bridge that collapsed in America.

A long time ago  a lady was run over by a car so they built a foot bridge.
 It was connected to two buildings because they didn't want  anyone to get run over again.
 It only took six hours for the footbridge to be built.
When the bridge collapsed it landed on the cars that passed underneath.
It landed on 8 lanes and four people passed away.
A few people survived but they got seriously injured so people called the ambulance.

Waka Tapu by Jeff Evan

In a nutshell I learnt...

  • in 2012 two Waka with people inside called Te Aurere and Ngahiraka Mai Tawhiti sailed to Rapanui. 
  • I also learnt that Gambier Islands is close to Rapanui.
  • when they were sailing It took ten months to go to Rapanui and go back.
  • During the journey the navigator yous his skills and knowledge to locate Rapanui Island.
  • The navigator used the sun and ocean swells and at night he used the stars to keep him on track.
  • The voyages was the dream of master Waka builder Hekenukumai.
