How volcanoes are formed
Have you ever thought how volcanoes how they are formed. What makes them formed and why they are formed.
Volcanoes erupt and lava comes out. Inside the volcano it is over 1200 degrees celsius and that is hot. Rocks fall and melt and create lava. When the volcano erupts the lava follows down the side and it is cold outside of the volcano so the lava goes soled and makes the volcano bigger because it is building the volcano up.
How the volcano starts is the tectonic plates underneath use they hit and makes a earthquake then the plants push up and create the volcano because this happens every time it does that the
volcano gets bigger and bigger.
Now that you know about volcanoes you can go tell your family and tell them all about what you have learnt.

How bees make honey!
Bees are a small flying insects that collect and gather nectar from blooming flowers to take back to their hive to turn into honey.
For bees to get the sugary juice (nectar) by sucking it in with their tongues. They store the nectar in their honey stomach which is different from their normal food stomach. Then when they have enough they fly back to the hive.
When they get back to the hive they pass the nectar through their mouths to other bees who chew the nectar for half an hour, until it eventually turns into honey.
After that they put it in honeycomb cells, the honey will probably still be wet so they dry the honey by flapping their wings and to make the honey more sticky. Then when they’re done the close the cells with a wax lid to keep it fresh and clean.
Today, There are more than 20,000 species of bees in the world. Bees are pretty intelligent species because they collect the nectar from the blossoming flowers then take it back to the hive to pass it on to other bees to chew, then it eventually turns to honey. After that they store it in honeycomb cells and cover it with wax lids to keep it fresh.
Honey is a Yellow, sweet and or thick liquid, produced by Bees.
What are Bees? Bees are a flying insect that are known for two things. Some people freak out when a Bee is in close distance because of their sharp poisonous stinger, which they use to inject people if they feel threatened. On the other hand people see them as the brains behind Honey.
Honey is mainly known for being a spread for bread. As time goes by more recipes are invented using Honey. Bees start the process of the making in Spring, when they fly from one flower to another. They inhale the Nectar and Pollen from flowers and store it in their stomach.
Whilst the bee is returning to it’s hive, it mixes the correct proteins.
Once it returns worker Bees chew the nectar/pollen and continue the process until it turns into natural honey.
At this point in time the Honey isn’t as thick as it is when it’s brought from the supermarket because it hasn’t had extra ingredients added to it.
When the bee is satisfied it then places/stores the Honey into a Honeycomb which is created by wax. When there is no room left in the Honeycomb they then seal the Honeycomb using wax which keeps it clean and ready for the beekeeper to add artificial ingredients.
Did you know that when a Bee stings it soon dies

Bees are a stinging wing insect that makes honey and honey is a sticky and sweet substance.
Bees make honey by collecting nectar from flowers and drink up the the nectar, they collect the nectar by placing their tongue into the flower and they suck in the nectar and it goes into their stomach and the pollen grains goes into their stomach, then the pollen mixes with the sucrose and two other substance to make honey.
The pollen mixes with proteins and enzymes and the pollen in the process gets turned into honey then the bee’s fly back to the hive and they drop the freshly made honey into the beeswax comb, then once the honey is in the comb bees start to fan it so the process of the evaporation doesn’t take so long.
When most of the water has been evaporated from the honeycomb the bees seal it the bee seals the comb with a secretion of liquid from its abdomen, which eventually hardens into beeswax.Then the honey beekeepers collect and produce the honey in factories.
Why I choose sports!
Sports are really fun to me and once you have read this explanation it will be fun to you to. Sports are really fun there are all kinds of sports that there are and I’ll tell you some, there is, Cricket, Soccer, Rugby, Hockey, Tennis and Athletics.
Sports have a lot of things that you can do their is way too many sports in my count, there is Cricket, Athletics, Swimming, Rugby, Orienteering, there is about over 750 sports that are played around our world today or tomorrow or even yesterday. The sports that you can play is some very athletic sports, e.g Athletics is where you have got to run 100 m 200 m or even 1500 m, also in athletics their is shot put, discus and long jump, shot puts look kind of like this (it depends on how much it weighs how old you are), Soccer is another sport that you need to be athletic at, you have to concentrate in this sport, because when the ball gets taken off you, your going to get it back before the other team scores a goal. There are many many other sports around the world that you can play and if you want to know more here is a website 25 Famous Sports around the WORLD.
You should get involved in sports because, you burn calories like body weight. In rugby your trying to sprint to the end of the rugby field and scoring a try for your team, while chasing after other people trying to score a try, In Hockey your running down the Field chasing the ball with your hockey stick and trying to get a goal, but once everybody gets older they get more advantages in these sports and that's exactly why I chose sports for my thing, As you may or may not see a lot of kids and adults sports have advanced playing as well as non advanced.
At school you have a lot of opportunities, like going off to counties or Auckland, especially when your a year seven like me, I'm in a cricket tournament for counties and nationals at the moment I’m also trialling at school for counties soccer tournament that I may play in, Right now with the cricket were in round 3 so we have one 2 matches, see what i’m talking about, at school you have a lot of opportunities even once you get older you have a heap of opportunities, like being on TV and being famous, like Brendan Mcallum became a famous cricket player for New Zealand, and Ritchie Macaw and Dan Carter, became famous rugby players for New Zealand too.
And now this is your chance to have opportunities to play a lot of sport, and my saying is don't quit stick with it and I do stick with sports , and you should to, So go and try out some sports and actually you should enjoy the sport, only if you play long enough. And that's my explanation.

When a bee returns to the hive with a full belly of honey it passes the nectar to another bee by passing the liquid into the other bee's mouth. This process is repeated until the partially digested nectar is finally deposited into a honeycomb.
In the summertime bees work way harder than us they literally work till they die. I think bees are better builders than the us because they make a lot of structures that are very fascinating like a honeycomb.
Bees are flying insects who use pollen and nectar to make the gooey and sweet substance we all know as honey. The worker bees work and work for the Alpha, also known as the Queen Bee.
A bee is a stinging winged creature that collects pollen and nectar, bees are flying insects closely related to wasps and ants. They produce wax and honey, they live in large communities, which means that there could be over 1000 bees in a single hive. Bees are known for their role in pollination, in the case of the best recognized bee species, the European Honey Bee would win for producing honey and beeswax. There are many different species of bees, for instance, some bees sting and others don’t. Drones are stout male bees that have no stingers. Drones do not collect food or pollen from flowers, their sole purpose is to mate with the queen. If the colony is short on food, drones get the short end of the stick and are often kicked out of the hive.
Honeybees start off by flying out of the hive and finding flowers. Once they find a flower, they gather some of it’s Nectar. Many plants use Nectar as a way of encouraging insects, such as bees, to stop at the flower. In the process of gathering nectar, the insect transfers pollen grains from one flower to another and pollinates the flower. Pollen and nectar is used as food for the bees who make the honey. Nectar is stored within their stomachs, it is passed from one worker to the next until the water within in it diminishes. Honeybees have two stomachs, one for eating and the other for carrying honey. At this point, the nectar becomes honey, which workers store in the cells of the honeycomb.
Bees are special animals who give the pleasure to humans by supplying us with the golden goodness we know as honey. They are hard working creatures who really know how to hit the spot with the natural sweetness honey contains.
