Boring Writing On Books


This year we had net-books for our first time. Last year I had to write in books, BORING.

But I started to be happy when we got our first net-book. I was so excited, I was about EXPLODE. Well not explode an in blow up. Without a net-book I will be going to write on books again.

We can learn heaps of stuff like reading,writing and other things. Now our teacher can check our work from on. Everybody likes having net-books even bringing them home to work on there reading or writing and other activity’s.

Having a Net-book is awesome!

Movie Time

On Saturday Me and my dad went to the movies to watch something. But I can not remember the title. The movie took 2 Hours to watch it and 10 minutes to end. That took a really long time. Then we went to BK for lunch. It was delicious. That was the greatest day. Maybe?

Going Up And Down

Going Up And Down

On our way to Ab-sailing it looked pretty high like I’m going to fall off. But the lucky thing is we get 2 harnesses. One is a chest and the other is a body harness. It my turn to clime up and I was second to go up.

I was scared to go up, it was pretty hard climbing. I got tired when I was up there now for the scary part. I have to go down on a smooth platform. I was moving so slow walking up to the edge of the platform. I was going fast all the way down to the ground, suddenly I hold on the rope starting to go slowly.

Bombing In The Water

Splashing Off The Pontoon

As I started to walk into the water, it was freezing cold. On the way I was chattering and shivering, it was like walking to the south pole. Finally I got to the pontoon and I was starting to get warmer.

I climbed up the pontoon and got my first chance to jump off. Suddenly I accidentally fell off backwards. I was shocked that my first jump was a fall. It was like someone pushed me off the pontoon.

On Monday we had a afternoon treat it was a ice cream comet.

We crushed the biscuits and hundreds of thousands with the thousands block. it was going to be tasty in the end. the biscuits looked like dust when it was crushed. It felt so cold when I got my ice cream, it was dripping through my fingers when I was rushing down the ramp.

As I got to Mr Sommerville he tipped hundreds of thousands on my ice cream. Then I was ready to eat it, it tasted nice. Suddenly some people got a brain freeze. Then a huge mess on the ground outside room 17's courtyard it looked dirty. So we had seconds We had to eat with our hands.

AFL Coaching


Isn't AFL an Australia game? I was intrigued when I heard there were Aussie Rules Coaches,coming in to teach us how to play. We are kiwi kids!

The most difficult thing to do is Drop Punt. It was hard to aim at your target, as we had a contest. My partner was showing off as he was felling confident saying” Mr S catch this” as he missed kicking it to the side.

The second thing that our coach was going to demonstrate, is how to hand pass. It looked easy when she demonstrated it but it was not easy for us. As I tried to hand pass it veered off in an different direction and I said “Watch Out! as loud as I could.

Now it was time to handmark. You have to make your hands into a W. I dropped The ball as we had a game it was not to easy as I said “ No!

I’m looking forward to putting all these skills into practice, when we get to a real game of AFL next week.

RWC Ceremony Opening


On Friday it was the big game for the rugby world cup opening as Tonga goes against the All Blacks. There was a big cheer from the fans from both teams and they came onto the field.

The crowd was cheering as loud as they could, like wild animals. They wanted the game to start as the performance was still going. As it started I thought we were going to win as Tonga would not get any points. But they got one and the crowd went crazy.

There was the last minute of the second half we won but we did not expect there work although the city struggled with the huge crowd,everyone agreed that the opening ceremony was a huge success.

Badminton is a very tricky sport to play as it looks like your going to lose the comin wealth game. So we had Badminton lesson. Our guide was could Donna.She is Ranked 16 in the world.

But the Badminton game looks often strange because there was heaps of shuttles in a big box. I felt nervous at the beginning. I was getting the butterfly’s in my stomach but there’s nothing wrong with playing Badminton.

So I started to get use to Badminton but not with serving. It was really hard because it takes time before you get it.I tried and I tried to get a point and it was a point to me so I cheered myself for getting one but I lost so In less it was a game and I Tried my very best to get one point for myself.

Persuasue Writting

I think that All Parents and children, should have 1 television free day to have a break watching TV. There are many reasons for this. This will rest your eyes for a day, and it’ll get your homework done as well.

Firstly, there is one day that all children should not watch TV for one day so you could rest your eyes. It will not make your eyes hurt and won’t make you tired.

Secondly, you save time to do your homework and it’ll make your family and teacher happy. It makes you learn better and you will be brainy in the future .

I think that it is a great idea to have a break from watching TV, don,t you?

Partly Cloudy
This morning Miss Oauno showed us a movie. It was set in the sky full of clouds. The title is Partly Cloudy. There was a character called cloudy and a bird named stork. This movie starts with storks and they had to give things to there new parents. But there was one cloud that a stork does not want to work because the boss made him bad things. It was so sad that the stork wanted to be with another cloud. When it nearly comes into a end the stork came back to open the bag and it was armor for protection so he doesn't get hurt.

Extreme Make Over Edition


Marvin and I worked how to redesign Room 17's courtyard. Today we chosen to do a extreme make over in Room 17's courtyard. our plans we had added a higher drinking fountain because we do not like to bend our backs. But so far Room 17's courtyard is a bit boring and people don't even play there anymore.

Marvin always has idea's he showed me a bench seat it look great for people to sit on so we don't have to sit on the ground. Marvin found it on Mitre 10 mega.

But finally I have the best idea is to take the rails and put stairs only it'll be awesome because it is a faster way to go home and back to school and you won't have to get squashed by other people.

Oktapodi


There was a movie that Miss Oauno showed us. The movie starts when the two octopuses were together and the female one was taken out. The male had to save her because she would be eaten in a restaurant. They try to get the male to get off the truck. Then they jump in different pools and it, and then the female had to save the male that was caught by a bird then it finished it made me laugh.

The koreko of this movie is If you want a friend you have to treat them as you want to be treated.
I would tell my family to the movie because it’ll make them laugh.

Our task this morning is to redesign our mouses using our imagination. I add a name with only one letter starting with t. I also added a 3 arrows 1 on each a big one for the front to make it a head. I even made a bigger mouse. I replaced the cord into a wireless mouse because I don’t want to tangle it like a snake.

Redisigning my netbook


Miss Oauno said that we have to Imagine about our own net book case. I figured out that I was going to put a bigger pocket so I can put extra stuff inside like my net book and something else.

I still Imagined about the net book case so I put an X box 360 and a flat screen TV and to make bigger I made a bigger handle. It looks amazing.

Marble Track Callenge Part 2


Today we had another challenge called Marble Track Callenge Two given by Miss Oauno but it was the same one as yesterday. This time it was even better,We got to plan our Struture. My partners were Piriniha and Logan. we planed that we were going to Roll some news paper into tubes and make to two angles.

As we started we only got ten minutes and it was a big project to do. I felt worried that we were not able to finish our structure. Cutting the paper as was rushing to finish as Miss Ouano said we got an extra five minutes but it was still not enough time to finish. We did not succeed our structure because we gave up.

Marble Track Challenge
















As Miss Ouano said that we had a competition, we found out it was called the ten minute technology challenge. I felt worried that I was going to lose the challenge on my own but lucky we had partners to build it.

We made the news paper into tubes and made a slide and a tunnel with it too, but that was my idea to describe what it will look like. We had our own jobs what we had to do, I had to do the cello taping and Pirinha had to cut newspaper and Marvin had to make the structure on his own.

Marvin tested it and it broke the slide, but it went though the tunnel. We had to think of another idea, so we thought of something else. There were no ideas to think of as we staring at the broken structure we made.

I felt frustrated because we had one minute left before were finished the structure and we didn’t have much time to finish our work. It looked as if it was broken glass. It did not tape to the tubes with our slide and it dropped.

Next time when we have a news paper challenge again we will make it better.we should of put a gutter instead of a slide and make attachments to corners covering the newspaper so the marble does not come out of the corner. And make bigger tubes so I hopefully it’ will work next time.

Can Some Animals go Without Food?


Some snakes don’t eat much often the summer season. They go go and have their meal during summer and wait until winter to wrap up on a tree and never wake up on another summer.

Bears use up all the food that a bear eats and go’s in it’s fats. they use all the fat to sleep in the winter. They use up all their energy to sleep and on a summer.

Camels have a big hump back for people to ride on. They walk on sand for a very long time. they use their fat for energy so they don’t get tired

Who Were The Spartans


Spartan boys were been taken away by their family left as seven years old. They were trained only for war. They had no luxuries, and left their hair long. They became as police men and became soldiers

The Spartan men were trained only fighting and that's all, either for their city or anyone else who would pay them. The other work was done by slaves captured by spartan soldiers and they were called Helots.

The women of Sparta feasted and celebrated when a son who won a battle. But if their sons were defeated, they could be killed by their mothers in shame.

Japans earthquake and tsunami

There was an earthquake that cause a lot of damage in Japan. The size of the earthquake is 8.9 it was the biggest earthquake I'd seen. buildings were the most dangerous things, they had to evacuate the building as fast as they could. The people were scared because they saw the nuclear bomb and think it will blow up.

They were trying to get under tables and finding an open area on a field. They were waiting to get rescued from flooded houses waving the white flag. The buildings were crushed and they develop into lots of little pieces. The tsunami looked bigger and I was getting scared because the people in the cars had to slow and the tsunami was coming and they started to drive away.

Cricket

Every Thursday we have Cricket with Hammond,Robbin and Chris. They come to Point England school to teach us how to play Cricket. I am always nervous because I might miss hitting the ball.

We always have a practice before we play Cricket.We had to be in Team’s before we play. As my first hit for practice my hit went far as it can go. The ball kept on going and I grabbed the wicket before it fell on the ground. When the ball that I hit, kept on going the rest of the team got all the cones that were on the ground to set it up the game again for the next person to have a turn.

Next week I was a bit drowsy to play well. We meet a new guy called Jamie. He told us how throw a ball with a lot of accuracy and power. The most important thing is to aim at the wicket and trying to hit it. We had to get into teams that were called Hearts and the other side is called Ace’s. First the game was hitting the wicket pretending it is a target, it was too hard. The Hearts won all the games.

We enjoyed playing cricket and well like to thank the coaches.

When we started opening our netbooks we felt delight to see our brand new netbooks.
We were confused on our netbooks. As we were on our netbooks we did not know how to use them well. I was intriguing about our netbooks.
