World War Two Life of a Nurse

Activity: Imagine that you are a nurse working on a large medical ship in WWII then finish the story.

One day you are walking along the deck of the ship when you hear a loud bang. You start to run as you see smoke coming from the far end of the ship. You run towards the room where your patients are waiting to receive treatment from the doctor. Just as you arrive at the door to their room you hear another loud bang and you.. (My writing starts here) look around to see what's happening. You see fire coming from the other end of the ship and then you see a military ship coming closer and closer. You hear screaming from your patients and you dash inside to see what's wrong. Inside you see a doctor telling everyone that they need to evacuate the ship because our ship is under attack. A group of soldiers runs into the room and starts loading the patients onto stretchers before carrying them out the door you follow them and see them place the soldiers on the second smaller ship.

You run back to the room where the patients used to be and see the doctor still inside. He tells you to take medical supplies to the other ship. After a couple of loads, a soldier tells you to jump on because their leaving. You tell him to wait that you're just grabbing the last box but when you get it the evacuation ship has left.

You see a rowboat close by and grab hold of it before dragging it to the side of the boat and throwing it overboard. You carefully lower yourself down into it and start rowing, after what seems like months you finally wash up on a shore. You see a man standing in front of a flag holding something and then you realize what he's holding, a gun! You stick your hands up in the air but he fires anyway. The funny thing is when he fires a bunch of people set off running. Then it hits you the gun was to start a race, the man turns to you and you see the flag properly it's the NZ flag, your back home.

Flanders field

The poem In Flanders Field makes me feel sad because of the soldiers who died for our country although I do like the feel to it. Here is the link so you can read it for yourself.

Women can vote

I do not think it is fair that women were not allowed to vote until 2015 in Saudi Arabia because men and women should be equal as they are both intelligent people who deserved to be treated like they are. Other countries let women vote earlier such as 1893 (NZ) and 1902 (AUS). I believe that men and women should be treated equally not one ahead of the other.

St Paul's Cathedral, Summer Learning Journey

St Paul's Cathedral is in London, It was built in June 1675 and it took a decade to design and 40 years to build. The reason it was built was to replace the great cathedral that perished in the great fire of London. It was opened in 1708 and it was designed by Sir Christopher Wren. The crypt in the cathedral is the largest crypt in western Europe, the first person to be buried in the crypt was its designer Sir Christopher Wren. The two largest bells have names Great Paul and Great Tom, Great Tom is sounded for a royal death, the death of the Bishop or the death of the Lord Mayor of London.

Bill Kini summer learning journey

Bill Kini was a gold medalist at the 1966 commonwealth games for heavyweight boxing. He was also a good rugby player. If I got to interview him these are questions I would ask him.

Did you practice one sport more than the other?
What did you feel like when you won the gold medal?
When you were growing up did you ever think that you would win a gold medal?
On average how many hours per day did you train?

Village of Waitangi summer learning journey

Activiy: What three things would you like to do at the village of Waitangi.
I would like to visit the treaty house, read a replica of the treaty and look at a Maori war canoe. I think I would like to see the canoe the most though as it is one of the largest in the country.
