A few days ago, we did our second me in a Minute. I improved on 7 activity’s and stayed the same on 3 activity’s. I worked at home by doing a bike ride around the property every night. From that I Inproved on sit-ups, push-ups, skipping, train track jumps, throwing tennis balls in a target, bouncing a tennis ball on a racket and squats. It goes to show that when you get off your butt and start exercising. It makes a huge difference on what you can do. We have one more to do to see if I can improve again.
The year 6’s and I have been learning about physical, metal, social and spiritual health. For the physical part, we all did different exercises like pushups, sit ups, hoops from free throw line, the distance we can run around the oval and more. All these exercises were done in a time frame of 60 seconds. After we done a exercise, we would record it down on a sheet of paper and the start the next.
After we completed all the exercises. We collected all the results from everyone in the our class and create a class average for each exercise. If our score was below the class average. Our goal would be to beat the class average on that exercise. I have to practice skipping. I’m the worst skipper in the world. I couldn’t skip,to save my life
We did this task to improve our heath. In this case it was physical.
Any way, my goal is to have a higher score than the class average. We will do this task again and I will find out if I can skip.
“Yum. Jam donuts, oi fellas…she’s coming…put em away,” We weren’t there for the donuts dough. Get it. Dough, instead to though. Haha. On our trip to Melbourne we noticed different sounds and smells using our five senses. Here we are jotting down a single reason of what “connected” us with other countries culture. The different food connected me. I tried different foods from fruit to meats to breads. I also “connected” with Italy. I saw a Lamborghini hurricane and a Ferrari 458 Italia. There are so many different things to touch, smell, hear, see and experience.
How would you like to be in a terrifying, depressing cage with peasants starring at you like your beonće. Or a pair of shoes in a shop. It’s like these people coming into your home. Throwing you into a box in the middle of the night. Taking you to a new place where you don’t want to be. This is why zoos aren’t meant to be.
All the animals would have lost their hunting skills. Take the Tiger for example. If something were to happen and the tiger got released into the wild. They would be hopeless. This is because they have not used any of their past hunting skills. The tiger even is towards the top of the food chain. The tiger should be the king of the jungle. Not the king of the cage.
What is just as bad. Food is handed to them. CHOO CHOO, all aboard the spoon feeding train. I think that just comes back down to space. Did you know that a tiger in a zoo has 18,000 less space then the would have in the wild. That is a big difference.
People are always saying. “Zoos save lives though”. Bull. It’s called Harumbae. It’s called the circle of life. You can say we are born to die. The sooner that we all accept that we all are going to die. The better. If all the animals were saved. The world could not possibly populate all the animals and humans. Already, where ever you look there isn’t always life. And that’s a beautiful thing. Because when you do find a living thing, that is a beautiful thing. If all the animals were saved then we would find life everywhere. That would destroy the beautiful fact of finding life. That reminds me. They are not free. Now take the gorilla for example. It beats its chest to scare of predators. Or to intimidate others. What’s the point of beating its chest at a zoo. What is it trying to protect. A 5 year old boy stuffing his face whit fairy floss. Ohh yeah. That boy could do some serious damage.
By now if still not convinced. Your CRAZY. If u are still going with “ZOOS ARE ESSENTIAL,” well that’s your opinion and I cant change that. But unfortunately for those with some empathy. Like me. Zoos are going to stay till the end of time. Unless someone with political power gets a hit over the head with a baseball bat and gets some sense knocked into him. If you still don’t believe me. Well then search up Harumbae. You’ll find the other side of the zoos. You might as well put the animals in prison.
Today (26th of June) we had our election. Basically the year 4s &5s voted for their favourite political party. I know my group was very successful. I know this because we had many votes and each member of our team put themselves out there. Every individual showed that they wanted to win. The year 4s came first at 10:00am. Our group I think went well for that hour. The year 5s came at 11:30. We didn’t do as well. That’s what I think. Our party came 5th or 6th over all. The winners were free fun Friday. I had a great day. I should’ve been at my table more offen. Thank you.

I did my biography on Sir Edmund Hillary. Some of his qualitys were that he had a strong belief of fair play and a fair go. e.g : He got really annoyed when he heard that the government weren’t going to send a party to get a climber who got stuck about half way up the mountain.
