Netbook Reflection

The Year of the Netbook ( make up your own title for your reflections about using a Netbook this year)

This year I have really been fun having a Net Book to work on because it is a really good way to learn because pen and paper is a bit boring but Net Books are are better

As much as I have loved having a Net Book there are some things that I haven’t liked getting distracted and getting in trouble for doing something different

The hardest thing ...
The greatest challenge for me ...
From time to time ...
Most of the time ...

I think ...
It would be sad ...
If the Net Book Scheme failed and ...

if I did not have a Net Book I would be sad but I wouldn't really mind

Solution's to live on Uranus

The four problems about Uranus is that Uranus is to cold and it is dark and no water and no air`

If people tried to live on Uranus the main problem facing them would be that there is no air to breathe

If humans ever tried to live on Uranus they would. Die because there is no oxygen there. People need oxygen to breathe.

One solution to the problem could be that each person wears a spacesuit. Connected to the suit is a pipe that is attached to a big oxygen tank that is on Jupiter.

A big balloon around Uranus filled with oxygen allows people to breathe. This balloon is invisible and easily penetrated by spaceships.

People could fill their own houses that are insulated with oxygen. The doors and windows are made with the same material as the big balloon.

The best solution would be for the balloon filled with oxygen as the scientist I invented this to help humans to live on other planets. A team of astronauts will take a year to finish it.

I am looking forward to one day living on Uranus.

Avoiding athletics I was commanded to get on that field I thought that I would let my team down. My heart was pounding as Pt England school lined in their age groups. Awaiting for Mr Burt to begin the day of fun. I hoped I could get lots of points for my team.

Our favourite event was softball throw, chucking my hardest I almost got past one of the furthest throws. (Dam I did not do very well, better luck next time) I said to my self I heard a sound it was time for lunch. We had not finished our last event after that we run to our last event sadly the day had to a end but we had a lot fun. Well it was worth it

Day and Night

Do you know what makes the Earth spin? I will tell you. There is an invisible pole through the Earth there is a south side of the pole and a North side of the pole. Mainly the heat hits the middle of the Earth that is why India and other hot places. The cold places like the north pole and the south pole and the North pole the sun doesn’t really hit the north pole and the south pole. The seasons change because the Earth rotate around the sun.

Aussie Rules

Aussie rules

On Thursday room 13 played Aussie rules.  Megan and Allysa were going to be our teachers this afternoon.  We learnt to pass by hitting the ball with my fist, it was weird. It was funny because I thought we were playing with a Amercian football, but it was AFL ball. This skill taught us how to pass the ball properly.
Then we played ball Tiggy I got tagged straight away it was fun.  But I liked being the tagger because I got 7 people.  I almost tagged Lee but he jumped out of the way. He was too fast for me, but i’ll get him next time As we were doing warm ups, the wind almost blew me over. The weather was changing a lot. First it felt like Summer, and then it felt like winter.
I had fun playing on the big field.  I felt sad when we had to go back to class. It was a fun afternoon with Megan and Allysa.   



Room13 made Alfajorcitos

Alfajorcitos are a Argentinian treat that are very very yummy.

biscuits and then you put caramel made out of condensed milk all over the base of the biscuits. We were tempted to lick the knife as  we sandwiched the biscuits together.

It tasted really yum this is the best treat ever.!!!

Cross Country

feathery dead bird on the track at Pt England School’s Cross Country.

As we walked to the start line, we were filled with nervous excitement. This year it was a new, and much longer course - heaps of people would be watching too! “Take your marks!” instructed Mr Burt and off we took with determination and perseverance.

Running over the rocks, my legs began to feel like wobbly jelly and my lungs were bursting. Oh no! This was only the beginning!

Twisting and turning along the winding path, the race felt never ending. “Ouch, Ouch” I said over and over ,my feet were killing me. I had lost my shoes at the start and running in my socks was painful.

My spirits lifted as I spied Miss Va’afusuaga and Feki dancing at finish line. I gave a burst of speed and collapsed over the line, relieved and exhausted.

Excitement spread across my face as I knew this horrible day was finally over. Oh No! I nearly forgot - we have to do it alla gain next year.

Buzzy Bee and Tiki

And welcome to New Zealand I bet that you have come to see the Rugby World Cup. You are very welcome to be in this beautiful country. NZ is a very unique land there are many
different cultures living here all together.

Do you actually know what a tiki is? I’m guessing not? The
term tiki refers to a carved human figure and is part of Maori and
other Pacific culture. Its a Mystery finding out about the myth for
how Tiki got its name. On the other `side, in many parts of Pacific
islands, for example in Niue ,the Tiki myth is unknown and human
figures were not carved but they still had a tiki.Buzzy Bee is the most famous toy in New Zealand many Buzzy Bees have been sold in many country’s in New Zealand. Nearly every child has a Buzzy Bee to play with in New Zealand.

Last week room 13 had badminton. Donna showed us how to hit a shuttle and serve.
Then Donna showed us how to play badminton soccer she split us in to two groups.
To play the game of badminton soccer you have to hit the shuttle, you have to have quick body movement to hit the shuttle over the net. If you hit it over the white line you are out.
Then we had a little play of hitting the shuttle over the net.
Room13 really likes Donna and badminton soccer.

As the BFG walked over to Sophie with a bolte of green liquid he said “Here is the scrumdidliumptious Frobscottle would you like some?” “OK thanks” replied Sophie “but look the bubbles burst down then it will make you fart”
“A whizzpoper” shouted the BFG. “But that is the wrong way!” said Sophie
“Wrong way you say, then you would have a foalthsome belching burp” the BFG said, most disgusted.

The twits

The twits are very very nasty people.Every week they eat bird pie, they put stuck tight glue on a big dead tree to catch the birds. There are four monkeys that tell the birds, “Go go fly away there is stuck tight glue on the tree.” But the birds do not understand the monkey’s African language. One day along came a Roly-Poly bird who could speak any language, so the monkeys explained about the Twits, and the Roly-Poly bird was able to tell the other birds not to go on the tree. This made Mr Twit very angry!

my gratet fear.Summoning all my courage I tried to catch my breath. screaming silently in my head I didn't feel so brave.How could I defend myself against the big bully.

Marble run
Today we did a marble run with Miss King. At first, when we started my team thought that we could not do it, but guess what happened? we made it. My team argued over our scheme, but finally we actually made a good marble run. We tweaked and fixed it to make it good. I thought that we could do a good job with it and I think that the marble run was interesting and fun.

Tornado on the North Shore

yesterday their was a tornado in the north shore shopping moll in Albany.It was going on to 3pm and the students were about to go out of school.

My dad works near the tornado.He told me that it was really raining down.He was in a meeting. Jay told him to get out of there.The tornado looked like a spiral of gray cloud and a cone. It got bigger when it got higher.It sounded like a jet engine of a jet roaring over head.The people were worried about the houses and the cars flying over their head and landing on top of them.
The tornado was a terrifying experience.
