stardome planetarium

Secondly in the planetarium there are a few robots in the 3D movie .In the 3D movie there is a spaceship,planets, lots of planets,stars,and more information about space. You can see  southern cross also the false crosses.You can also see  compass points, the compass points are north, west, east, and south. It felt like I  was in a warm globe with comfy seats. Now that's what I call the best globe in the world.


Firstly at stardome you learn lots of facts about the solar system. In the corridor there is a spacesuit, information about space and many more space facts like comets which are known as a dirty snowball.

the challenge is the quiz we got one question wrong.

This is my pepeha i hope you like it


Tripoli A long time ago a boat called Neptune was on the sea. And on the boat there was 764 soldiers in that boat but there was 150 NZ on the boat. Deep in the sea was mines (bombs). The mines got there from their worst enemies the German people. So when they would go over the mines they would blow up. And then with the 764 soldiers in that boat sank with the boat. Tripoli T.P.S Now Tamaki Primary is surrounded in Tripoli Tobruk Benghazi and Alamein I think I know why Tripoli is so close to us. So we can learn about the war and remember them. From Lydia Tumai

Lydia bridges

Room 8 went to the yacht club to view the site of the Panmure Bridge.
The first Panmure Bridge was a swing bridge. 
The swing bridge is not there because it was old so it got demolished.
It was unsafe for cars and people because it could break.
In the olden days, a man called Hemi he would like to sell produce to Australia to  get some money.

Two weeks ago a  concrete bridge collapsed on a 8 lane highway in America and crushed passing cars. One year ago a woman went to cross the 8 lane highway. She was going to the other side to university and she got hit by a car and died. So that is why they made the bridge. Two weeks ago when the  bridge collapsed the emergency  people came. The people under the bridge got really injured. The helicopter was too loud the emergency people couldn't hear the people saying "Help, Help". Some of the people were crushed to death,injured and some people survived.
