Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombing.

Imagine a 45,000 foot mushroom cloud appear and then suddenly a flash,  the sky lights up like a lantern then.....nothing.Well this was the reality for the citizens of Hiroshima on the 6th of August 1945 and Nagasaki on the 9th of August 1945.This was the USA's way of trying to silence the beast that was Japan,this ended up ending the war because of Japans surrender.

The USA developed two atomic bombs ''Little boy" which was dropped on Hiroshima and "Fatboy"which was dropped on Nagasaki.
This is a photo comparing "Little boy" and "Fat man"

At 17seconds past 8:15 "Little boy" hit Hiroshima obliterating 80,000 people in a instant,inside the cloud was the same temperature as the surface of the sun.[712.3706(°F)] The affects on the survivors was immense,it may have looked bad on the outside but the effects from the radiation are indescribable. 
During World War II, the 2nd General Army and Chugoku Regional Army were headquartered in Hiroshima, and the Army Marine Headquarters was located at Ujina port. The city also had large depots of military supplies, and was a key center for shipping.
The bombing of Tokyo and other cities in Japan during World War II caused widespread destruction and hundreds of thousands of deaths.For example, Toyama, an urban area of 128,000 people, was nearly destroyed, and incendiary attacks on Tokyo claimed the lives of 100,000 people. There were no such air raids on Hiroshima. However, a real threat existed and was recognised. In order to protect against potential firebombings in Hiroshima, school children aged 11–14 years were mobilised to demolish houses and create firebreaks.

Nuclear warfare strategy is a set of policies that deal with preventing or fighting a nuclear war. The policy of trying to prevent an attack by a nuclear weapon from another country by threatening nuclear retaliation is known as the strategy of nuclear deterrence. The goal in deterrence is to always maintain a second strike capability (the ability of a country to respond to a nuclear attack with one of its own) and potentially to strive for first strike status (the ability to completely destroy an enemy's nuclear forces before they could retaliate). During the Cold War, policy and military theorists in nuclear-enabled countries worked out models of what sorts of policies could prevent one from ever being attacked by a nuclear weapon, and developed weapon game theory models that create the greatest and most stable deterrence conditions against explosions.

Even today many people believe that there was a better was of finishing the war and that too many civilians were killed.What do you think?

Image result for Fractions

In maths we are learning to divide Fractions to get the number and a well as plussing them to get the answer and Its quite easy to do and we'll give you and equation like 1/2 divided by 3/4= so you just change around 3/4 so it is 1/2 divided by 4/3 = you just times 2 and 3 so that = 6 as the denominator now you times 1 and 4 so the equals 4 as the numerator so that is 4/6

For homework we are having to write a narrative about John Birtwistle and we are having to write a maximum  of 5 pages we'll give you a blimps of a narrative of John Birtwistle.

John had no money, no food and no water. That's when he made his plan to rob a bank. He lived in the woods for a couple of months planning the robbery. He survived off a diet of mushrooms fresh water fish, and wood grubs. He also spent time making an axe from wood and sharpened rocks. How he made it look so good remains a mystery.

On March 26th 1955 he decided to leave the woods to carry out the bank robbery. He walked all the way into town witch took him 6 hours. People were looking at him as he was unwashed and "give me all of your money or I will Jump over this counter and hit you with my axe."

blog week

Welcome to Week Four. My name's Kade and this is Brooklyn. We will be showing you what awesome learning we have been engaging in this week... 

This week we have been analysing Runaway Train by Soul Asylum. This song has saved thousands of lives this week we have been writing a book to the children we made up who ran away we had to make posters about it. 


This week we have been focusing on percentages of a number. and commutative properties for example 12% of 30 is 3.6 we got this by first finding 10% of 30=3.0 then 1%  of 30=.3x2=.6+3.0=3.6. and for commutative properties e.g 2x5 = 5x2 And with addition 6+5 =  5+6. 





                                 World War 1

This week we have been learning about world war 1. World war 1 went from 1914 to 1918 over 9 million people died. One of the 9 million was a kiwi soldier Henry Nicholas who earned a victorian cross his girl friend always kept in touch with him. Until she sent him a letter which she didn't get a reply until six months later but it wasn't a reply it was her same letter back with a stamp that said deceased.

Week Two Quote of the Week . . .



How will you apply this quote this week?

Awesome Writing:

This week we have ben learning about the Vikings. Here is Mahajhew's Information Report . . .

Imagine standing there, seeing all these Vikings sprinting towards you, running as fast as leopards, holding nothing but weapons ready to chop and slice people in half. They grab everything; they steal all the gold and jewellery.

You stand and watch as they take people as slaves and throw all of the gold and jewellery on their long, narrow, hard wooden ships. 

People dead on the ground; you, hopeless as ever, tears running down your face; you wonder if you could have done something.
