Stepping


Division Delights


Food chain story

Swoosh! It was a spectacular day, the sun was shining and the birds were chirping. While all of this was happening a Phytoplankton named Phyt was having a relaxing day in the cool water and the meditating breeze… At the beach! While Phyt was floating on the bubbly surface of the water a Zooplankton named Zoop was lurking in the depths of the ocean. This Zoop were talking about loved to eat Phytoplankton, but he especially wanted to eat Phyt.

Your probably thinking. “Why would they eat each other. There the same family, aren't they? Well they are the same family, but that doesn't mean they can’t eat each other. The reason why is: Phytoplankton are producers. This means they make their own food from the sun, air and soil. On the other hand a Zooplankton is a consumer which means that they eat anytype producer. Anyway back to the story.

So, he wanted to eat him so badly because Phyt stole Zoops girlfriend! Now, she was a Plankton just a normal one which meant that she couldn’t get eaten and also she couldn't eat them. Phyt and Planky(the girl plankton) broke up ages ago though. So that's why Zoop wants to eat Phyt so badly.


Zoop started to emerge from the depths and began to rise closer and closer to the surface. Once Zoop got to the surface of the ocean he started travelling. His home was not very far from phyts, but it seemed far to him because he was so little. His home was only about 100-170 cm away from Phyts home. By now he was about 50 cm away from Phyts house.

When he got to Phyts house he was planning to rip down the walls and terrorise Phyts friends, but that was all in his head. Instead he tried to look for him. He knocked on the door, but there was no answer. So he knocked again, but there was no answer. So he went searching. He finally found him chilling on the surface of the rock pool. Zoop crept up on phyt and tried to look out for any mussels. He got closer and closer, but little did Zoop know a mussel named Musse was watching him. When Zoop was going to eat Phyt, but then Musse just suddenly ate Zoop. Phyt woke up and he was so thankful. They became friends and lived happily ever after.

The most dangerous writing challenge

While driving I was listening to my favourite jams. Usually I get sick while driving, but I was listening to my jams so I didn't get sick. Anyway lets get back to the story. So I was driving right and there was a car right next to me, then it suddenly drove right toward me! I knew I had to move or else.. Or else I would be a human pancake! So I swerved to get out of the way, but instead of landing on the grass I landed in the water! Now that I think about it, it was pretty embarrassing, but at the time I was just thinking about trying to get out of that car. I tried to push the door open, but it was no use. So I got the baseball bat from the trunk of my car and smashed the window to pieces. I got out grabbing a breath of air. I was so lucky for that baseball bat.


This is a writing challenge that we had to do. It is called the "Dangerous Writing Challenge".  We only had five minutes to do it and if you stopped writing you would fail and you would have to start again. I made some mistakes and I fixed some, but then realised that we can't fix it. I hope you enjoy.

The life of a Sea Urchin

Title:The life of a Sea Urchin.

Common name:Sea urchin

Scientific name:Paracentrotus lividus.

Te Reo Māori name:Kina

Introduction
 This report is about Kina and how they live. Maybe you could learn something from this report. Hope you like reading it.

Habitat
 Kina live in the subtidal zone which is never out of water. So that means that they are always in water. They also live in the coral and on it.

Diet
 The Kina eats algae, it eats any algae and it also eats brown seaweed. It may stick to coral and by eating it they make it turn white.

Behaviour/ movement
They will bunch together and rade the seaweed, leaving none for the other animals.It moves with its spikes and pokes them out far when it feels threatened.

Special features (adaptations)
 It has spikes that let it stick to the coral. It also has a mouth at the bottom so it can it more in a little amount of time. It bleaches the coral when eating it.




Conclusion
Kina have big spikes so you may want to watch out for them. They are delicious, but some of them are poison. So watch out!

The dangerous writing challenge

Walking in the hills breathing in the fresh air was so peaceful. The sun began to rise and I was happy that it was a beautiful morning. As I was walking down the track I could see a little tiny ant bench pressing with a stick. It was standing on a rock while pulling the stick up and down. It was an incredible sight. It was amazing. When I started walking again I couldn't stop thinking of that tiny ant. So I went back and looked for the ant, but all I could see was the stick. I wish I would have taken a photo. Then an amazing thing happened, the ant came back and started to lift the stick up. I quickly took a photo and thanked the ant even though it couldn't understand me. That day was an incredible
experience.

This is a writing challenge that we had to do. It is called the "Dangerous Writing Challenge".  We only had five minutes to do it and if you stopped writing you would fail and you would have to start again. I made some mistakes and I fixed some, but then realised that we can't fix it. I hope you enjoy.


When I was on my trip in Antarctica I came across something rare, amazing and breathe taking. Your wondering what I saw right? Well I saw a giant mammoth in a block of huge ice. It was very sad. helpers came from all over the city to try and free this poor animal. 30 minutes later they melted the ice a little bit and we could hear and see the mammoth moving. Slowly, a foot moved, then the trunk, then a loud growl shook the ground... It was alive! We all were so relieved and proud that we saved a rare, but amazing animal. We got big knifes to cut the ice. We started to cut being aware that we could hurt it. 1 hour later we freed the beautiful animal.

This is another piece of writing from the same challenge hope you enjoy.

The Escape artists

Title:The Escape artists!

Common name:octopus

Scientific name:Octopoda

Te Reo Māori name:Wheke

Your probably thinking that octopuses are not good at escaping right? Well your wrong, they can fit through any small pipe, shape and gap that you put close to them. Why? You ask, because they have no back bones, so they are just a big blob. In this report your going to find out where octopus live, what they eat, their features and their behaviours.

Habitat
 They live close to the ocean floor and they sometimes swim along the coral. They live in the rock pools and the rocks too. When they live on the ocean floor it is very cold.

Diet
 Octopus eat mostly Crab and they also eat small fish, shrimp, sea slugs, sea snails and shellfish. It can get their prey fast because

Behaviour/ movement
When they see another octopus they turn pink because they are probably in love. When they feel threatened they turn black, to give you a warning. They go camouflage when they don’t like what you are doing.

Special features (adaptations)
They have ink inside of them so that they can get away from their predators. They have 3 hearts so that more blood can flow to their gills. Their 9 brains make them smarter and that is why they can get out of small places.


Conclusion
 So now that you know that octopus are the best escaping animal in the world, you should maybe try and make those holes in the tank just small enough that they can’t get through.

The Dangerous Writing Challenge.

As the kitten jumps from rock to rock it stops. It realises that the jump is to long so it sits there waiting for help. It meows and meows until the kitten sees a elephant that is willing to help it. The elephant pulls out its trunk and helps the kitten out of the water. The kitten is so relieved until the elephant drops the kitten and the kitten lands on the same rock again. the elephant is says sorry to the kitten and tries again. the elephants trunk reaches out one more time and it works. the kitten is so thankful bacuse te lake has just started to rise. the elephant says " don't worry" Thank you so much the kitten says one more time. the kitten and the elephant become friends. they decide to take a swim
in the lake. the kitten does not mind if he gets wet.

This is a writing challenge that we had to do. It is called the "Dangerous Writing Challenge".  We only had five minutes to do it and if you stopped writing you would fail and you would have to start again. I made some mistakes and I fixed some, but then realised that we can't fix it. I hope you enjoy.
