City Autumn
The air breathes frost. A thin wind beats
Old dust and papers down gray streets
And blows brown leaves with curled‐up edges
At frightened sparrows on window ledges.

And an old man totters past with a cane
Wondering if he’ll see spring again.

Leilani - Pyrmids Of Giza!

Pyramids of Giza

Giza pyramid complex - Wikipedia

The three largest pyramids of Giza are the tombs of ancient Egyptian rulers known as pharaohs: Khufu, Khafre and Menkaure. The Pyramid of Khufu took almost 20 years to build, around 2550 BC. Also known as the Great Pyramid, it is made of more than one million limestone blocks. On average, each block weighs 2.5 tonnes. The pyramid was the tallest built structure in the world for more than 3800 years. It contains three known burial chambers.

The Pyramid of Khafre (son of Khufu) has many statues in and around it. One of these is known as the Sphinx, which may be in the image of Khafre. The Sphinx statue looks like a lion with a human head. It was built to guard Khafre’s tomb. The Pyramid of Menkaure, son of Khafre, is the smallest of the three. The burial chamber inside is lined with pink granite.

Treasure and mystery
Archaeologists marvel of how the pyramids were built. The ancient Egyptians did not have powered machines to measure and lift building materials, yet they managed to build these huge structures.
The pyramids were full of treasure that was buried with the pharaohs after they died. They included gold, statues, clothing, jewellery, food and even boats. The ancient Egyptians believed that all these things would help the pharaohs on their journey to the afterlife.
The pyramids also had secret passageways to trap robbers who tried to steal the burial treasure. Eventually, the ancient Egyptians stopped building large pyramids because they were easy targets for robbers.

Did you know?
Pharaoh Tutankhamun was buried in a secret tomb in the Valley of the Kings that wasn’t discovered until 1922. The ancient Egyptians believed that anyone who entered the tombs would be cursed. After the tomb of Tutankhamun was discovered, one of the people involved in the search died. This led more people to believe that the cure was real!

Questions

  1. Who were the three largest pyramids of Giza built for?
  2. Khufu
  3. Khafre
  4. Menkaure
  5. What is known about the Pyramid of Khufu?
  6. It is the great pyramid.


  1. What was found in all three pyramids?
  2. Food , boats , gold , status , clothing and jewellery.
  3. Why did the pyramids have secret passageways?
  4. They had secret passageways to trap the robbers when they try and rob some amazing items that are in the pyramid's.
  5. What was thought would happen to those who entered the tombs?
  6. They would get cursed and die.
  7. What happened to feed this belief and did it prove the belief to be true?
  8. They think is it true.Because when they went someone died and they really thought that it was true.
  9. Why would only pharaohs had pyramids built for themselves as tombs?
  10. So that when they pass away they can get buried.They also get a lion which has a human head so that they can guard them.
  11. Why would a pyramid take 20 years to build?
  12. Because they didn’t have any machines to help build the pyramid’s.
  13. Also the pyramid’s are made out of millions of limestone blocks.Each block weighs 2.5 tonnes.
  14. What would we do today to stop grave robbers stealing treasure?
  15. We would hide our most important items away somewhere secret.
  16. Lock up our house when going somewhere.
  17. Why are people today still fascinated by the ancient Egyptians?

Leilani - Musical Madness!

Screen Shot 2017-10-11 at 2.39.29 PM.png
On the  16th of October Pt England School had an assembly all about what each team is going to be learning about. Each team has a different topic that they are going to be learning about but it has to connect to the Term 4 topic.They either can do some acting or make a movie or do both. We saw five different teams doing acting or we watched  their movie. They had to do that because it has to show what their team topic is going to be about.


Pt England School term 4 theme is called musical madness. Musical madness is all about music. You can create different types of music with things around you , your body or instruments. Some teams are going to be creating their own music with their body and things around them.


Team 4 topic is all about music and sound. Team 4 is going to be creating music ,  instruments and more!. Team 4 had a video clip. That video had them in the car listening to music. My favourite part of the video clip was the end. They went into the staff parking lot then they stop and look at Mr Jacobson. Then he  started to play music in his van.


I would like to create my own music using things around me.I  would also like to participate in everything that the teachers made for us. The last thing that I would like to do is to create instruments like a guitar. I think a guitar is cool. Once me and my cousin made a guitar using some cardboard.


I think overall the term theme is a amazing choice. Musical madness is perfect for the last theme for term 4. I think all of the teachers from each team picked a great topic for their classes. I hope that everyone is going to enjoy their time doing the  topic that their teachers picked.

Team 1 -
The first team to go was team 1.Team 1 teachers were listening to music. Each time the music changed how they were feeling. There are many songs that can change our feelings.They can listen to different types if music to change their feelings.If you want to be sad do sad music.

Team 2 -
Their performance was Mrs Gaston singing. Then the rest of the teachers came up on stage with their instruments. I think that they are going to be making sound with items around them.Mrs Gaston singing is amazing.

Team 3 -
They had a movie. They were creating a song into things that they were saying. So it is kinda like a song in real life. It looked like they spent lot's of time making their movie. They are going to tell stories with songs.They can use different music to make different stories.

Team 4 -
Team 4 is going to be making instruments. They are also going to make their own music.Team 4 can learn how to use instruments.The teachers said that they are going to teach us to use different instruments.

Team 5 -
They are going to be watching movies that change their feeling. Not just sad movies scary movies that make them scream.Team 5 is going to be expressing their feelings with music.




Task description - Today is the first day back to school!After assembly we had to write what happen at assembly.So here it is.We did a plan ( which is not added in here ) This is also a practice for our writing test that is coming up soon.I have done a introduction , three paragraphs and a conclusion.
