Notebooks

When the Year 7's got their notebooks we were beginning to feel a bit jealous. They get free wireless internet by being a part of the Tamaki Cluster, which they can then use for their Google Docs. They were lucky.

Halloween

On Sunday afternoon I saw people dressed up as wolves and zombies carrying. “Wow they look real. That’s right it’s Halloween.” I thought to myself. When it was sundown I saw heaps of people running and knocking on doors. I didn’t go and didn’t want to because I had no costume. While they were trick or treating, I was playing cards with my brother on the kitchen table. I was too tired to go outside. We also had no lollies to give out to the people who knocked on the door anyway. “I am so bored,” I yawned. I looked outside again and saw they were still running across the streets and eating lollies. That is the best part of Halloween. It was getting close to 9pm at night. I decided to do something else other than playing cards and games with my brother and went off to read a book instead.

The Old Dental Clinic

On Friday Morning, builders were preparing to bust down the dental clinic. They used crowbars to take off the old weatherboards. When they were ready, a huge digger came crashing down on the old dental clinic, scraping the floors and shattering glass as a huge dust cloud spread like smoke. The digger scraped the concrete and got the top of the building with it’s sharp jaws. It pulled the structure down with its giant claw! It ripped all the parts into pieces, breaking wood in half and smashing windows. It fell straight to the floor and made a big loud sound, “SMASH!” As they cracked all the glass from the old windowz they busted the whole dental clinic and we watched as it and fell to the ground.

Active Earth

Water safety

Water safety

On Wednesday morning Room15 lined up eagerly awaiting to go to the pool. As the children got their life jackets they had to adjust it 3 or 4 times. Chris, our instructor, is a water safety person who is here to teach people how to swim.Unfortunately I forgot my togs and I had to watch. When they were swimming they splashed and I got wet. They were shivering and shaking as they had to get into the help position, that’s when they have to cross their arms and legs to get warm. They had to do it for 10 seconds. As they were doing a count down they went slowly.The next position is to get in a huddle that’s when they have to get into a circle and hold other people’s shoulders and have to sing the national anthem they were singing loudly as Chris spinned them around slowly. After-that when they finish singing they get have free time for 5 minutes and got out of the pool cold.They got out of the pool giggling and shivering. They lay in the sun, which was shining brightly. I felt sad that I was missing out, I should have brought my togs!

Going to my cousins house

On Saturday my dad and I went to my cousin's house. We got to stay there for the night for a sleep over.

When I was playing the Xbox 360 with Austin, my cousin, we were playing Fifa 2010. It was cool game to play. The game was about soccer playing for the world cup. I lost but I tried my best to win.

After that we got to go outside to play. We were playing with our scooters going down the hill. When we were getting up the hill I tripped up on the scooter and scraped my knee on the concrete but I was o.k. So we went up back to my cousin's house to get the plaster for my knee. It didn’t hurt because they put cream on so it.

As we got back from the house we were just in time for lunch. We had K.f.C for lunch it was yummy . When we came back we had a Popsicle stick for a treat. A We went to the dairy and I bought a corneto and grainwaves chips. it was a nice desert. After that we were consumed to do something nice to our aunty so we bought her some presents.I’d felt happy going to my cousins house.

The Cross Country Race

On Wednesday it was cross country day for sports. As the race was about to start I was so nervous that I was thinking about coming last. When the clappers went I gave the best that I could. As we got to the middle we were exhausted and drained from all the I so I’d jogged for a while then went up to a person and said champions never give up so he jogged with me. Then sweat because it was a long run and we were dying for a drink at the taps. When we got three quarters the way we were really tired when we got to the muddy bits that made my feet got dirty like touching mud cake that is not cooked. As we got to the finish, when we had to sprint, there was a boy next to me. We sprinted but we didn’t know what place both of us came. Then we had to wash our feet so we don’t put our muddy feet in our class.
Cross country was hard.

Swimming

video

On Thursday Room 15 and 17 went swimming at the Leisure pool and the main pool. There were too many people at the Leisure Pools so we had to split up again and two people have to be at the main pool. When Miss Garden told us how to dive we had to glide across the pool.Then we went to the bottom of the pool so we almost touched the ground. When we finished we had 5 minute free time. The diving was the best activity. I felt excited.

The Rematch

On Friday we had a rematch of Capture the Flag against Room14. I thought we were going to play something else. It was a fun game when we played with room14 again. But it was hard to get into the safe circle because there were too many of them standing by. But 1 time I made it to the safe circle. When I got there they were arguing the whole time. We had heaps of plans but they didn't work. Room 14 was trying heaps of times to to get onto the safe zone on the other side too. It was 3 out of 2 and we were losing. Finally at the end of the game we lost.

Capture the Flag

On Friday we had a game with Room 14, it was called Capture the Flag. Miss King told us the instructions. Room 15 was the read team and Room 14 was the blue team. She precisely explained the rules to us. We needed flags and cones.
Finally we started walking to the bottom field. We had to set up the field full of cones.
Nobody went out of bounds. In the game we were attacking with excitement like cheetahs.
Finally after the game finished we had a rubbish collecting game. There was heaps of rubbish around the senior playground. We won two games in a row. I felt happy.
