Six Photo's, Reading

Today my group and i did reading about old fashioned pictures. We learnt about different filters, props, icons and people that were placed in there pictures, most people were unhappy to take pictures. The six photo's were all placed in the olden days and in each picture there is something special and represents there culture. I enjoyed reading the book Six photo's because we learned about all the people that were placed in the photo's and what there tattoos and clothes meant. 

In this modern picture there is an icon sitting in front of books to represent reading and it’s in our school library. This photo looks different from the ones taken back then because of the new fashioned props and icons.

Pt England - Live Stream

Yesterday Glenbrae school went to Pt England to watch there Live Stream. It was a good day to perform the production because it was sunny. 

When we arrived we went inside to there auditorium and waited until they were ready to perform, it was there first time performing with there costumes in front of an audience. The play they performed was written by students at Pt England. It was about 4 bugs that went around the world looking for a place for Tuna to stay because she had the flu and the river was filled with rubbish, Taniwha was the one transforming them from one place to another. 

After they discovered places they went back to the river where Tuna was staying and told her the news, the 4 bugs told Tuna to stay there and they will clean it up. They all cleaned up and everyone from the places they went to came and helped them clean up. At the end they performed a song and dance, everyone who was placed in the production came out and danced. Then one student from our school came up and said a thank you for your wonderful production.  

Glenbrae school enjoyed there production because it was a musical and it was based on the world. We all hope to go back and watch another production written by Pt England because it was funny and creative. We enjoyed your Live Stream Pt England.

Brushing our Teeth

Brushing our Teeth
Brushing our teeth involves a toothbrush and toothpaste, it also helps with our hygiene. We brush our teeth twice a day so we kill all the bacteria on our teeth and we don’t have bad breath.

We need to brush our teeth so we kill all the bacteria and we don’t have bad breath. Bad breath is caused by the bacteria, the bacteria poops on our teeth and causes it to smell even more. Bacteria can also cause health problems like Toothaches, it would leave you in pain and you’ll have to go to the dentist before it gets worse.

We brush our teeth with a Toothbrush and Toothpaste. There is different kinds of toothbrushes like hard, medium and soft. There is different types of toothbrushes because some teeth require a type of toothbrush. There is also different kinds of toothpaste like colgate and sensodyne, sensodyne is used for sensitive teeth.

Everyone brushes there teeth twice a day, in the morning and at night. We brush it in a circular motion so we get everywhere in our mouth and so there’s no bacteria left. You could also brush your tongue with the bottom of your toothbrush and remember to floss.

Our teeth gets dirty from all the bacteria that grows in our teeth. Your teeth will stay dirty for as long as you don’t brush it, it will become yellow or black from the food you eat and drink. Some teeth might fall out because the bacteria grows on your teeth and goes to your gums which will use force to pull out the tooth.

We have to brush our teeth daily and look after our teeth so they don't rot and stay healthy.
