Holiday Story

In the holidays I was so excited to be going to Ten pin bowling. When we were there I couldn't wait to get out of the car. I quickly ran into Ten pin bowling beating my mum inside. Waiting for my mum was so hard because there was so many games that I wanted to play on. As my mum came in she gave me some tokens to play Deal or no Deal and I got some tickets for winning.

Finally once I had finished at Ten pin bowling. We went to go and eat Burger King for dinner.
I had the best Holiday by far.

Cross country Story

Nervously waiting on the hard concrete. I challenged myself to beat my mates at today's cross country. As i was sprinting I huffed and puffed trying to beat Osana. I could feel the cold and rough wind blow through my hair. After the race i felt exhausted and ready to have a rest but i also felt happy that it was over.

Trip to the Maritime Museum

The icy-wind was biting my face as gale force winds blew the Ted Ashby boat along. My hair was in my face as the weather was cold. As we reached the Harbour bridge I could feel the breeze rushing down. Heaving and struggling, we pulled the sheet to lift up the sail.

Our Pirate Wordle - July 26 2010

These words are from pirate stories that we wrote in our books. We then wrote it in to google doc and then we copied the words into Wordle. The better words that we used were pirate, golden and wears.

The Eruption of Mt Tapu - July 1 2010

When we first started art I was excited. My group wasn't good at working together as a team. It was hard to work as a team, We never listened to each others conversations about our volcano. I think we learnt more about making our volcano erupt. When it was time to erupt I couldn't wait because that is what I'd been waiting for. Next time I want my team to work together and help everyone in our team. Our writing was good but we made it too long for our movie, We need to speak fast and put some more interesting detail included.

Rainy Day - June 3 2010

Thundering stormy rain bucketed down from the grey sky. As it fell it made a loud noise like an earthquake. Incessantly the rain poured from the sky in a deluge and made a big puddle. The rain interrupted our singing, as it hailed down.

Active Earth

I have been learning how to make my people run in my animation stack.
I learnt how to make my volcano explode with ash, lava and rocks pouring down from the crater.
I hope you enjoy watching my movie.It was so much fun making it. It was a bit hard making my animation but I tried my hardest to finish it in time to go on PeNN and School TV.

Iron Brion - May 6 2010

On Wednesday after morning tea the seniors and juniors went to assembly. It was funny when Eddy danced to the song. When Iron Brion came out we were screaming. We learnt so much about different kinds of iron.

We learnt that meat can be lamb or beef. Dis you know that hamburger is a healthy food? When we danced with Iron Brion I was nervous when we danced on stage.  

 When the beef team went up first we shouted and did iron muscle moves. When the other team went up we were so excited to see the other team. Now it was time to chose the winner and Iron thought about it. It was our team! We screamed and shouted "horray" . Finally we had a fresh delicious hambuger.

Volcano - April 22 2010

On Monday Morning Miss King gave out balloons to room 14. I was struggling, huffing and puffing as my balloon expanded and my face went red like I might explode. Room 14's balloons popped like lava coming out of a volcano.
Magma heats up inside the magma chamber and there is too much pressure and it is released like air the in a ballon. Magma, smoke, gas and ash spew out of the volcano as it erupts.

Favourite thing at Camp - March 23 2010

Stretching my legs I skated around the circle.It was hard work as my feet melted in the roller blades.When I skated I slipped over and nearly donked my head on to the ground. When we played limbo I felt very excited so I skated as fast as I could. As I bent down it looked like I was relaxing.
