Police dogs

Today 26.9.17 we went to go and see the police men and their dog Kase.

Kase is a lovely dog and very smart. His owner (Collin & grant) the police men, told us a lot about Kase like: he weighs 39kg, run's 65km an hour, he was brought up in a school for police dogs for ten week's in Mount Wellington and he is a German Shepard, he is six and half years old.

Then they showed us some of Kase's tricks to us. They put sleeves on so when he is released  Grant starts running and Kase runs after him and bites the sleeves.

When Kase was a puppy they taught him how to track.
How they taught him is:
They squashed the grass and put food ion the squashed grass so if he goes of the grass he knows he will not get food, and that is how they teach dogs to track.

Introduction: Food is something we eat every single day to give us energy, protein and strength.
Paragraph 1
If you do not watch what we are eating it can lead to obesity. Obesity is a person that is fat, or you could say overweight. Obesity can give you diseases like strokes, heart problems, diabetes, makes unable to do physical activities, nerve damage.
Paragraph 2
It can also change your mood. For example, my teacher was eating healthy all her life because her parents wanted that best for her and her siblings. So when she got her own house she thought of eating sugary and junk food for dinner and lunch for a month. She told us that she started notice a change in her she was gaining weight couldn’t do anything physical and her mood was changing. She was starting to get more depressed and skin even started to look different.
Paragraph 3

If you are eating junk food or something that is bad for you it can also affects your teeth. Germs are first on your teeth then you are eating junk food that equals to acid and when that acid hits your teeth it becomes decay which lead’s to holes in your teeth and it can turn to the colour black and green and that is why you also need to brush your teeth and watch what you are eating.

Brushing your teeth

Intro: What is brushing our teeth

To begin with brushing your teeth, grab your toothbrush and your toothpaste put them both in your mouth and brush the outsides, front of your teeth, the inside and your tongue. You should be brushing your teeth twice a day, once in the morning straight after breakfast and again after dinner.

The real reason why you have to brush your teeth is to prevent cavities you need to get rid of plaque and bacteria covering your teeth. To remove all of that the best way to treat it is to brush your teeth and to floss at least once a day. Sugar is bad for your teeth because it makes decay. And the results of decay makes holes in your teeth. In our teeth fall out which means that you have to go to that dentists.

Why you need to brush your teeth is because, when you are eating the germs go on your teeth, then when you eat sugary food it equals to acid, and when that acid goes onto your teeth is becomes decay.

Bastion Point


This week my reading group have learnt about Bastion Point. For many years there was an argument between the Government and Ngāti Whātua about who owned the land. This is my DLO about what I learned.

Questions and Answers


What is Bastion Point?
Bastion Point is a section of land that the iwi, Ngati whatua, gave to the government.

Why did the British and Maori have different ideas about who owned the land?
The british wanted to buy land so that they could settle in New Zealand but they were actually buying more land than what existed in New Zealand.

Why did Ngati Whatua let the government use the land at Bastion Point?
Because the iwi (Ngati whatua) were happy to share their land with british but they did not have the same idea about the ownership.

Who burnt down the marae at Bastion Point?
The government burnt down the Bastion Point along with the houses near it. This happened in 1952 because (in the government's words) he explained that they did that because they were preparing for Queen Elizabeth’s (II) visit.

What does the word profit mean?
It means that when the government sold the gifted land he was earning money.

Do you think the police or the protesters were doing the right thing? Why?
I think the protesters were doing the right thing because they could have encouraged the government to give the land back to the Maori

What is your opinion about this issue?

My opinion is that the government should have just kept to their deal and given the land back to the Maori, but then I probably wouldn’t be here or even have or known my family especially my father, my Non, (grandma) my siblings and the rest of my family. So at a time i am also thankful that it happened.
