Never Going Back




when I didn't have a netbook it was hard because you had to write with a pencil and no one got to see your work instead of the teacher. It was like you were practising and practising every day and then it was nothing.

Now that we have a netbook, its easier because we have our own blog to put our own stuff on. But when we didn’t have a netbook we had to share a blog and then you had to wait to go on the computer.

A net book is good cause it helps us learn all the time, and we can go on maths whizz. when we take it home we can do our blog posts and play games.

But its hard that we get sour fingers and out Internet all ways gos off. if there is a crack on our screen it has to be sent some were to get fixed and it takes a long time to come back on the boat.

I like haing a net book and I don't want it to go away.

Bentzon1

The long hike


Camp was finally here, it was a long ferry trip to camp Bentzon and as soon as we got there we had to go for a two hour hike.First I was walking with my friend and then we stoped and had lunch by the water.

Then the teachers had a challenge to get the yellow buey (The little yellow ball in the sea that the boats moor on to).But in the end Mr Barks won and Mr Sommerville was still trying to hit it.

In one more week we are Going to camp Bentzon on Kawau Island and we get to stay in cabins not tents.Its going to cool because we are going to be in rooms with our friends.

Camp Bentzon is on Kawau Island and you have to catch the bus to sans-pet. then catch the fairy to Kawau and then up to camp Bentzon.

I'm looking forward to abseiling because it looks cool and its high off the ground. but only need to jump down.

The confidence course is going to be challenging because I've never been on one before. it looks hard because

I cant wait in till camp it is going to be cool.

Ice Cream Comets


Did you know you can eat a comet? (not the real one) Me and my class made one out of ice cream. When I saw the cones on the teachers table and she said we were going to make comets I thought out of what. then she said out of ice cream, yum.

When room 16 came in and we all got in a circle we had to crush some biscuits to make rocks. Comets are made out of ice,dust and rock were using ice cream for the ice crushed cookies for the rocks and hundreds and thousands for the dust.

some of us got a tern to crush the biscuits when my friend done it, it looked like he just had a bag of dust. Then we got a scoop of ice cream in my hand to mix with the crushed biscuits. The ice cream it nearly made my fingers
freeze off but when I put it on my cone it was all right.

“Yum!” I said to my self while ice cream was dripping down my hand. Mr SommerVille made a mess with all the ice cream and biscuits,Then some plates started coming out with chocolate ice cream on them.

I like ice cream and it will be cool if we get to do it again and it will be nice.

Fanzone


We were getting ready to perform at the Fan-zone, we were still practising for three hours with my Cousins, my Uncle and my brother. Some of us got ready on time and then we practised, my uncle got the music ready.He recorded it on to the hard drive and then got our VIP passes.

I jumped in the van and left for the Fan-zone, we where nervous because there might be more then 1000 people there. All of us saw all the people that were there we could see other people performing to. We go c out and then, all of us didn't want to do it because there was Heep's of people walking in.

As soon as we were close i ran in, there was bad news we were to late to perform because my uncle toke to long to get it ready. I went to have a look how big the audience is it was small. But then, the lady said “I can try and get some one to move in to your slot and give you some time to get ready” but we didn't perform.

Next time we know now to get ready on time, and don't take long to record the music. We
were disappointed and left straight away.

The NRL grand finally arrived on the second of October 2011. It was the mighty Warriors vs Manly Sea Eagles. They played At ANZ stadium in Australia.

Manly were ahead the first half, then Manu Vatuvai ran up the side line and got the try for the warriors.Then me and my dad yelled out “GO THE MIGHTY WARRIORS”.

It was nearly the end of the game, and Manly were holding the score.Then Elijah Taylor managed to score the second try for the Warriors, they were all hyped and ready. But still the warriors lost 24-10.

I was angry that Manly won, But I think the stronger team won at the end.

I did’nt even know how to play badminton and when I heard miss say we have badminton new I wasent going to do good. But when we got there I felt good about it until i saw the other people playing. It looked liked they played for years I did’nt have a good feling about this but i had to do it anyway.

It was hard to serve the shuttle because it was small like a ball, I tryed to serve it one time but i missed then I tryed to serve it another time then I missed. It was so hard that i had to give it to my buddy to serve then when he served it I missed it so the I had to try and serve it again and then i missed it.

When lin brang in the nets I new we were going to have a game and I was worried that I would’nt hit it and let the team down. But when I got on they served it to me and I hit it high, and then he hit it back then I got out.

I really like badminton now, so if we go back with perseverance and determination I know i can do better and serve the shuttle right.

New zealand


In New Zealand, the further south you go, the more extreme the winter conditions. But when you go further north it gets warmer because Auckland is further away than Dunedin and Antarcitca. Most of the snow came up to the North Island but didn’t strike Auckland.

New zealand is a beautiful country and a must-do for any travel holiday. We have lush islands suthch as ragintoto and wihiki and you can stay there for a hoilday. You can go and stay at wonderful hotels.

Room 17 Really needs a make over for our courtyard because it is ugly and no one wants to play here. One of the reasons that it is ugly is because that there is a big long hole in the middle. Plus grass is filling up the tap and it is geting yuck.

Little kids get hurt because there is no room on the courts and theres fights going on. People get crowded in the winter times cause the fields are closed a they have to play on the courts. Not many people come and play in it because it is boring and there is nothing to do.

Also kids get squashed on the courts by big kids then biger kids will squash them. We need to intice people to come and play in our court yard. Every body says Its not a good place to hang out because we all sent a survay out to some classes, to see if they like it but they all said no.

Plus the ditch in the middle of the courts is taking up the hole space and we can’t play the games we like to play. Unfortunatly the senior block tock all of the space, It tock all of the places that we like to play and it toke the courts that we play on.

If we make our court yard a better place kids might stop geting boweld over.

We should all have 1 television free day, per week.there are many reasons for this.We should all just have one free day of tv per week .This is good because you will get to rest your eyes for a day, and you can save some power.

Firstly you can save some power and your electrition bill won’t be so high. Also your Mum won’t be angry at you, for making it so high.

Secondly you can rest your eyes for a day. Then your mum won’t have to complain about a kid with square eyes!

I think its a good idea we have a break from tv per week don't you?

Partly cloudy
The main characters are a stork and a black and white cloud.The setting of the movie is in the sky with the clouds. When this movie starts a stork is carrying babies, dogs and kittens to their new houses to live. This one stork has to go to this cloud that makes bad babies like crockadiles and the stork has to delivery them. As the movie ends he has to take another baby
then it was an eel. My rating of the movie is 10 out of 10 because it is funny.

Some animals can have a meal and not eat for a very long time.
Most snakes have ther meals in the summer and go to sleep in the winter and sleep for months.

Bears eat food and store it in their fat for energy. Then when it is winter they had to go to sleep and have a period of rest.

Camels cary fat in their hump for energy because there is no food in the deset. They need heaps of energy for heaps of walking and it is very hot.

Every Thursday we have cricket with Hamen,Chris,Robet it is the worst part of the week because i can’t play. I don’t like cricket because every time I hit the ball i hit the wicket. but we had a compation so we could win the ball we had it on the field I was coming in first but I triped.

We had cricket to day we were learning how to bowl. I was not good at it at all because i could allways think of soft ball. when we finished bowling we played a game. we had to nock down the wicket we were wining but the other team one.

Holiday highlight


In the holidays I played blackops on xbox360 online. As soon as i signed in heaps of people of people signed in to. When the game started i picked my gun the sniper riffle. when i finished picking my gun i got started. there was about 18 people playing. The aim of the game is to try hide and shoot. Its hard because the people played this game for long. As soon as i hid up stairs in a house i heard someone so i set a trap. the trap I set was a mind boom so when he came up stairs it would blow up. When he died i looked out the window an i saw people. as soon as they heard the boom they came running up stairs and killed me.
