South african migrants

Today i presented my migrant inquiry on South African immigrants moving to New Zealand. I found presenting to the class was easy. I could have improve my presenting by talking more clearly and knowing what i'm going to say. My teacher said my strength in presenting was that I understood what i was presenting and that I processed. Also that one of my weaknesses in my presenting was that my actual presentation could have been more spread out. Overall I think i did a good job.

Migration model

This diagram shows the mainstream and counter stream flow between tokelau and NZ. There are many different push and pull reasons people move/have moved from tokelau to NZ. Push reasons are things that make people leave their place of origins negative things, for example having to move due a war that may be happening. Pull reasons are the positive reasons that attract people to a new destination. Like wanting to move for better education, resources and technology. The obstacles people might face when moving are money, ( not having enough ) not being able to find work. The mainstream flow are the people moving to NZ from tokelau and the counter stream flow are people who are moving back home. The mainstream flow is bigger because there are more people wanting to be in a bigger place/more advanced place.

New things about tokelau

Today in sos I learnt more about tokelau, for example I learnt how most tokelauans became christians by the 1850s and how from atafu to nukunonu is 92km and then from nukunonu to fakaofo is 64km across the rough ocean. I also found out that tokelau gets and average of 2,500mm of rain per year.
Something interesting I found out was that slave ships from peru took more than half of the people on tokelau into slavery.

Climate change

Global warming relates/connects to climate refugees because of the temperature increasing rapidly. The climate refugees are victims of climate change. Climate change is caused by us, humans. Due to all of our factories producing unnatural gases and it’s causing the global temperature to rise. It’s also causing the sea levels to rise causing flooding in certain countries. Fossils and forests have been cut and burned. Which is also intoxication the air.

Performing arts

I am presenting a group dance performance. The song we are dancing to is 'Single ladies' by Beyonce. We aren't using instruments for it as it is just a dance. We use our class time by watching choreography videos to that specific song. So far we have learned the words of our song and some actions.

Trip to tokelau

LI: Imagine you are a student travelling back to your homeland Tokelau on the boat trip after you have completed your studies. Write a diary entry describing your trip back home and how you are feeling about your future.

I've just finished my studies and am on my way to tokelau. On the boat it's good, I've been really excited for the arrival to see my family. I hope to see everyone is well and safe. I last talked to them a few days before the departure and we've been out on the sea for a day now. I get a little bit sea-sick every now and then, it's a little hard when all you see is ocean. Other than that I look forward to seeing my family and being back home.

Last night's sleep was ok, it got a bit cold with the small amount of blankets and the water splashing us. Some of the people snored but it was nothing compared to the waves crashing onto the side of the boat. But it was amazing to look up at the sky and see the stars and the moon. It was so peaceful the next morning, I was a bit tired as I stayed up most of the night but the sunrise was beautiful. Anyways it's time to go now. I'll write when we get to tokelau.

We have been learning about algebra and expressions and equations.
First we have to learn how to do it so it'd be easier for us.
I still need to learn how to write the expression in algebra because I can get
confused. I like that way that we're learning these subjects right now.
