Explanation / Turuki Health Care

Turuki Health Care

Turuki health care is a wonderful place for people to go and get better. Turuki health care is like a little hospital for you to get the help you need. But it is just a place for people to get medicine not to stay there overnight. Did you know that most  of the doctors at Turuki are volunteers.

There are different parts of the building that work in. There the stuff room only,  which can be also known and the eating room. Here is a list of places in the building that they work in: there's some little rooms for the doctors to work in, there is one big area in the building that has beds for people to lie on that is near the desks for were they put the medicine.


The doctor that work at the Turuki don’t have to work there some just volunteer for a spot in being a helper for the community. Some of the main doctors that work at Turuki were the first of them to become a helper at Turuki. This reason is because they would have known how to become a better doctor and then others would have volunteered to become a doctor to help those that needed the help.


All doctors that work in hospitals have to have the confidence of being a professional in what they do. The reason for this is because if they didn’t know what they had or were meant to do than that put the person's health into someone else’s hands. They may or may not get that person the help that they need.


I know that the doctors at Turuki are volunteers because my aunty was a volunteer in helping the community for those that needed the help in getting better. Some of the doctors can and may not be good at what they do but it is good that they want to help the community be are healthier place for us people to live in and let people know that they are in the hands of good people. Have you ever considered being a doctor.

The thing that I found hard about doing this was that I have never did counting in 9's. The thing that I found easy was that I got around what I thought I couldn't do.

Tamaki Collage Overdrive


This Afternoon we visited a website called Tamaki Collage overdrive. We had to choose a book that we thought was a good book to read. The book I choose was called Miss Peregrine's home for Peculiar children. The thing that I found interesting about this book is that the story started off talking about what someone in the family used to do and what they used to do. The thing that I found boring about reading this story is that it had to much information. 

Kiwi Can Taking risk



Today we had Kiwi Can with Mr Malu and Miss Latoya. Our warm up game was called 'bip bop bounce bang', it was fun trying not to get out. We also played a game that was called hand soccer. We had to support people to help them overcome a risky challenge. Every one in the team had to hit the ball before we could score. We all had to collaborate and cheer on our team while we were on the side line. After Kiwi Can we got into our dance groups so we could practise the dance for our dance production for the end of this term. Staying Alive was first up and then I see red was next. The foot loose group were the group to go on stage to practise in front of LS2. The thing that I found hard about the dance is that I didn't know some of the dance moves because I wasn't here, but I got around my mistake by taking a risk and copying the person in front of me so I could keep going. The thing that I found easy about today was that most of the class were being supportive through the whole of this morning.

Making connections - Forensics in Fire

Making Connections
 
L.I. Identify connections text to text, text to world and text to self
Text to Text
Text to world
Text to self
Something I have read or watched that is like this is...
Something I know about that is like this is...
My reaction to this story is...
Something I have read or watched that is like this is Blaze the forensic of fire. This book also involves how they investigate a fire and they explain what happened in the victim's house. It tells us why it is important to find out what happened at the place of the fire and they find out why that person did it unless it was sent by someone inside the house that was probably cooking our someone was playing with the lighter or the matches.
Something I know about that is like this is accidental fires can occur when candles are left unattended and lightning strikes can hit tree or people's homes  causing naturally occurring. Arsonists are people who intentionally set fire. Fire investigators at the scene of a school fire and  to investigators find  out where the fire started.

  • That it involves having to be a witness

  • Being responsible

  • Learning lessons

  • Learning important information
  • Finding a cause

  • Being patient
  • Investigating something

Today for reading we were working on our text to text, text to world and text to self. This is about telling people a book that can be similar. This is a document that you can use to tell us about the book you read and tell people something that I similar to the book you where reading. You can also add somethings that where told in the book for text to self.

Leading A School Assembly


Last term Fraidoon and I lead the school assembly. This was a great experience because I normally wouldn't be able to stand in front of so many people. I felt nervous to my bones at first, but I finally felt confident halfway throughout the speech because I got used to being in front of the crowd. I feel as if I can be able to lead more school assemblies because I am getting more confident each day. Next, I would like to lead as Duffy.

Why is it so important to keep oral story telling alive?


Shakaia and I have been working on why oral story telling is so important. We both found it challenging making a twenty five word summary. We got around our mistake by making a twenty seven word summary instead. We learnt that Maori story telling doesn't have to be read by a Maori it can be read out from anyone around the world.
