Mele buys a Coconut

If you find yourself thirsty in Port Vila, Vanuatu you may end up drinking directly from a fresh coconut at the market. Markets in Vanuatu have some similarities and differences to the markets we find in Auckland, New Zealand.

Firstly both markets sell fresh food to customers. In Port Vila there are chilli peppers, bananas, lemons and live crabs tied in bundles, to stop them pinching you. However in Auckland the food available to buy includes bread, dairy products such as cheese, chocolate and ice cream. The food in Vanuatu is grown there in the tropical climate, they don’t have the weather or space to raise cattle so they don’t have dairy products to sell. In New Zealand we have a large dairy       industry so we have an abundance of dairy products to sell.

Drinks - Tariq, Rayan and Suyash
In Vanuatu and Auckland markets drinks are available. In Vanuatu they sell coconut milk, taken fresh from coconuts by having the tops cut off with a knife. In contrast the drinks available in Auckland include coffee, tea, soft drinks, fresh fruit juice and smoothies. Some drinks in Auckland are prepared fresh like in Vanuatu however there are more hot drinks available because of the difference in weather.

Languages - Sheena,Wania
The languages you would hear in Vanuatu markets would be French, English and Bislama.  However in New Zealand the languages you may hear at a market would be English, Te reo, Chinese, Samoan or Hindi. We would find it easier to buy food in Auckland because of the larger variety of languages spoken by the vendors and customers.

Food and Drink prepared - Boston, Jacky and Mizuki
Visiting markets in Vanuatu and Auckland you would see food prepared for purchasing, In Vanuatu there are many foods like crabs, chilli peppers, lemon, bananas and coconuts just as they are ready for taking home. In Auckland lots of the food is in packaging such as cans, bottles, plastic trays and containers. Lots of the food available from Auckland markets are kept in refrigerators too to keep them cold and safe to eat.

Overall we would prefer to buy our food and drinks from an Auckland market because there is a greater variety and the food is safer to eat due to it being stored at the correct temperature.  To improve the market in Port Vila we suggest they use shelter to keep the food cooler, use stalls and tables to keep the food off the floor and import some produce from New Zealand such as our cheese and chocolate.

The Blobfish

Meet the ugliest animal,the Blobfish

The Blobfish is disgusting, miserable, gloomy fish.
The Blobfish is gross and has a stinky slimy dribble. The ugly Blobfish just sits in the water waiting for food. This pink alien’s friend Donald Trump did not come to its birthday party that's why it looks so miserable.

The Blobfish has and gross vomit kind of thing coming out of his ugly watery mouth. He has black dot eyes, big slimy nose and a watery mouth.

WALT-Describe thoughts,feelings and ideas

We were asked to write a poem describing something we love and something we loathe about school. Our poem needed to have eight lines and featuring rhyming couplets. 

What was the learning intention of this lesson?
To write a poem of what you  loathe and love about the school
What am I most pleased with? Share an example.
I Loathe the tiny juniors,
Because they're a chatterbox,
but when they're away ,
it’s because they have chicken pox.
What do I need more help with?
Finding words that rhyme with each other.        

Moment of time 2017

I was at the Airport ready to board the emirates plane.The hostess weren't as nice as the were before. I buyed juice before boarding the plane.I sat on the sofa while my sister keep whining about chips.20 minutes had passed and it was time to board.

As I boarded the plane , I sat down on the seats.As the plane drove off and started to fly ,I started eating my food,it was noodles with tomato sauce,chips ,water,juice,fruit salad.It didnt taste as good as the other emirates plane,So they took it away.

Teacher Comment - Emirates is a pretty flash airline I’m sorry to hear it didn’t live up to your expectations! Great to see you using paragraphs. I would love to see some more description such as what the air stewardess was wearing, how they spoke and acted.
