Digestive System

The beginning of this term the Extension Group had a task to research about the Digestive System. We did this to find out about how Healthy bodies look like and how malnourished bodies looked like as well.

My bit in the movie is the Small intestine. It looks like sausages but really YUCK to eat. In an adults body it is about 7 meters long. And the fact that it lives in a humans body is astonishing. The small intestine (also known as small bowel) is the longest portion of the digestive track. It is also located in the abdomen.

I would rate my movie 5 out of ten because my voice over is really bad. But over all for the whole team I would give it a 9 out of ten which is excellent. And one mark off because of me. It is quiete funny as well.

Sit back relax and enjoy your way through the journey of the GUTS.

Comments:





As we all were waiting impatiently to get a racket each, we had to learn how to hold the racket first. We had to grip the racket loosely and we had to act like we were shaking somebodies hand, which was quite awkward. And we had to let our wrist move and nothing else. Laureen taught us some of the ways we should hold it. One was the forehand it is when we are trying to hit the shuttle really hard over the net or when ever you like. Then there is a backhand when you would like to serve the shuttle or just hit it randomly.

Badminton


When I walked past the hall, I saw that there were other classes playing a sport called Badminton which I haven’t heard of till it was Room seventeens turn to have a go. As soon as the tutor walked in through the doors of the hall, my hands started to tingle because they couldn’t stand any longer with out holding that racket. Anyways, when our tutor sat on the stage she introduced herself. Her name was Laureen.

As we all were waiting impatiently to get a racket each, we had to learn how to hold the racket first. We had to grip the racket loosely and we had to act like we were shaking somebodies hand, which was quite awkward. And we had to let our wrist move noting else. Laureen taught us some of the ways we should hold it. One was the forehand it is when we are trying to hit the shuttle really hard over the net or when ever you like. Then there is a backhand when you would like to serve the shuttle or just hit it randomly.

Finally the time had come to get our rackets. Everybody swung them around like those light sabers off Star Wars. But sooner or later each and every one of us got the hang of it. So then we started off by absorbing the shuttle and where abouts we should hit it. The shuttle has a plastic bottom with feathers to help it to fly.

Later we had to pair up with buddies. I paired up with Logan. He was not that good and neither was I. We kept on hitting the shuttle to far, to short, and sometimes we didn’t even hit the shuttle. But we did not mind.

After playing around with buddies we got to have a little game before we left. Laureen our tutor split our class in half. When that was sorted, we had to make a large circle and get five shuttles each. So the aim of the game was to have good grip on the racket and the way you should hit the shuttle. In the middle of the big circle was a bin for the shuttles to fly in to. Half of the class stood up the other sat down. And obviously some of us were good some were not.

At the end of the session I fest proud of myself because I hit two shuttles in the bin and because I had lots of fun. I can’t wait for next week if we play that game again I promise my self I would have improved even more.

RWC competition


I believe that the good things and the bad things about New Zealnd hosting the Rugby World Cup are...... First the good things about it, we get a lot of tourists from all over the world. Secondly New Zealand could collect a heap of money from all the tickets people buy. Thirdly most of that money will head towards Christchurch and the terror they are going through.

Now the bad things firstly after game parties it will get seriously wild. Secondly drugs might come into our country from around the world. Thirdly people hate when their team looses and then they will take it out on the referees. Fourthly New Zealand might loose the World Cup and if they do it is all because THEY DID NOT KEEP THEIR EYE'S ON THE BALL.
