pugs



                                                     Pugs


Did you know pugs sleep 14 hours a day?
That's about six more hours a day then a human
. Pugs are one of the smallest dogs in the world.
They come in light brown and black colours.
They need medicine regularly.  A pug can live
into its teens 15, 16 or even 17 years.

When they are puppies they are the size of a
human's palm. Pugs weigh between 7kgs (male
and female). Generally they are about 36 cms tall
at the shoulder.


For this reason they should able to eat dog food for
small to medium sized dogs but some problem when

Why Dogs Are Better Than Cats!

Why Dogs Are Better Than Cats

Dogs are better than cats because they don’t hunt that much and they don’t ruin your furniture.dogs will give  you love until they die. Cats will make you pay for every mistake you’ve ever done since the day you were born. A dog knows when you’re sad. Dogs will tilt their heads and try to understand every word you say. Cats will ignore you and take a nap. Dogs will bring you your  slippers and cats will drop a dead mouse in your slippers dogs will wake you up if there is a fire , cats will quietly sneak out the cat flap.

Why Television is a Bad Invention‍


We all heard the warning: “THat TV will rot your brain!”We think that television is a horrid and ghastly invention because   some shows are very inappropriate, it is bad for your health and could make you lazy and you won’t be able to get other things done like cleaning your room, doing your homework, exercising or spending time with your family. Studies suggest watching TV lowers verbal abilities.

Some shows are inappropriate because they show bad things that can make children behave badly.  For example stealing, smoking, bad language, aggression and mean actions.  We believe that parents would have to block certain channels or check what they are watching regularly so that they don’t watch trashy, rubbish filled shows.

The last thing is that if you watch too much TV you could get addicted to it and could become lazy. Also you won’t be able to get anything done because you will just sit on the couch for several hours and will not help in doing anything useful. So now that we have explained why TV is bad for you… GET AWAY FROM THAT GHASTLY INVENTION!!!

I am learning to describe where I come from

I am writing a description of where I come from.  I will be
describing my ethnicity and where my family came from before
they arrived in NZ.  I will also describe any important places or
taonga that I have.

I am Indian and so are all of my other family members.  My family
and I speak Indian and English at home.  My grandparents came
from Fiji to live in NZ.  They came here to make a better life for
themselves in 1975.  I was born in NZ and have lived in Auckland
all my life.  My mum and dad got married in 2002.  

Fiji is an important place to me because my other family (relatives)
still live there.  When I go to Fiji I learn a lot of information about
my family history and culture.  I learn about the dances in Fiji and
stories from the olden days.  

In the future I would like to be a veterinarian just like my mum
because I love looking after animals like puppies and kittens.

Student reflection:  I think I am multi-structural because
I wrote several ideas about my family.
