Net book Reflection


Having a Net book has been such a help to me because when I need to search for information it lets me go to the website where the information is left on. It is a help because when I type it types better and faster and if I work with paper and pen it is so much slower. I find it easier to use my Net book than paper and pen.






As much as I have loved having a Net book there are some things that I haven’t liked, like the Internet dropping off every time and when it drops off it makes my work goes slower.



The biggest difference in my learning is that I am getting better at math and reading.




The greatest challenge for me is to not get distracted and play games.



I think It will be a good and a bad Idea because what is the point if you have no Internet and if you do your work on paper it will be finished before the time has ran out. 


The problem with using a Net book is that I sometimes be tempted and do the wrong thing but then I know what I have done and should the right things at the right time

It is so cool.....................

This is a song that Brandon,Robert,Sosaia and I made. Its all about the things we enjoyed this year. Everything was awesome.

Alien Snot


“Yuck, making alien snot is disgusting. Filled with disgust and horror, I waited to make the yucky snot in Room 13. I wonder what the snot will feel like.

If you are interested to make alien snot, here is a recipe to make it. The first step is simple, all you need to do is to pour corn flour into bowl so that you can pour water in it and give it a good stir. Last, some green food colouring and stir once more then you will notice it will harden quickly

Miss King came around with some corn flour tipping it in a bowl.  As I stirred the corn flour and water mixed together, it harden quickly. Yuck!!!!!!!!!!!!! The food colouring was next, gross.

Making alien snot was not so bad after all. Although I thought it would of been disgusting, it came out good at the end.

Ice Cream Comets


If you know lots about space than I think you should know what a comet is. Well Room 13 made some comets. Not real comets,but ice cream comets.

As Miss King dumped the icy cold ice cream on my hands I shouted, Ahhh it is freezing cold. I could not take it any more, the ice cream was to cold. As it dripped through my fingers it left a sticky mess. How can this day get any worser.

If you want to know what comets are made from, here is the answer for it,it is made out of rocks which are different sizes. Oh yeah and the next is dust and ice. There you go, now you know what it is made of.

If your interested in comets here is how you can make it. The first step is obvious alright, scoop ice cream into a cone or in your hands. A simple step is next, pour sprinkles onto it so that can be the dust and lastly biscuit crumbs for the rocks, that is how to make it.

Filled with wild excitement I slurped the comet into my mouth. Mmmm delicious I said to myself. I felt different textures on my tongue.

I felt really great after I ate the ice cream, it was yummy. My tummy wanted some more but I did not want to be greedy. Delicious!!!!!!!!!!

This was one great afternoon alright. I might make some another day if I have the chance to.

Lift Off



Nervously sitting strapped in my seat, launch was mere seconds away. Shaking with fear, I knew this was going to be dangerous adventure for me to go to space. I was ready to leave earth.

I was really scared about lifting off. Countdown started as I prepared to launch off.I felt frightened.

Booom!!!!  A explosion was seen as the space shuttle launched off. Few seconds had past as the rocket ship accelerated into the sky with a bright blaze of fire.

I could not wait to explore new planets. Missing earth so much I wanted to go back there.

Black Out Day



I got dressed for school on friday. Today was Black Out Day. This was to show our support for the All Blacks on the opening day of the Rugby World Cup.

Running down the footpath as I saw my friend ,coins jingled in my pocket as I bounced excitedly - I was going to buy a sausage for my lunch.Most people wore Black.

Arriving at school, I noticed, to my surprise, that even the teachers were wearing black. Miss Tito aswell as Miss Va’afusuaga even wore wigs and had paint on their face. I love it when our whole school gets behind an idea.

At assembly Mr Burt kept telling stories about the times when he was not wearing his hat and yucky stuff fell on his hair. I love Mr Burt’s stories.Then It was finished.

` In our classroom we traced around a small person.As all of us finished it was time to paint.Using different colors to put on our work we left our things to dry.

After morning tea team three and four went out to the courts to play some rugby games.We all were looking forward to the activities that the sevens boys set up for us.I could not do any more exercise after kicking balls and playing touch.jmiukjm mjmnj m

I had such a great black out day and I really hope that the All Blacks can win tonight. My brother is supporting Tonga.NZ is going to win their match.

Alfajorcitos


Mmm huele los Alfajorcitos tan riquisimo. Wow! The Alfajorcitos are so delicious.
Rm 13 made a Argentinian treat on Thursday.

In Argentina so many kids eat lots of Alfajorcitos. The Alfajorcitos is a treat in Argentina. these snacks are very nice.

On Thursday Miss King brought some biscuits and a jar filled with dulce de leche to school. It was so sticky and crunchy. We squashed the biscuits together to make a sandwich. Mmmmm the Alfajorcitos are nice they are like my favourite Argentinian treats. The smell of the dulce de leche was great.

Aussie Rules


`“Yes, we are playing Aussie rules today” Do you have AFL training every Thursday? Well room13 does. We have coaches that are really good at playing Aussie rules.

Blustery winds blew into our faces. I was frustrated with the weather was changeable. As we tried to play, the wind got stronger and stronger like a cyclone, we could barely begin.

When the wind was calm, we learnt some skills like a drop punt and bouncing the ball. These skills were to help us learn how to play Aussie rules. Our coaches were making sure that we were doing it properly. The sun came out just as it was time for a warm up called the jumper bumper.

Running and jogging we played kick baseball. The game got boring just as we had to switch over teams. When I caught the AFL ball I started to cheer up.The game got really fun and exciting from then on.

The day was a cool day. When the training was finished, we had learnt so much throughout the afternoon.

Kiwiana of NZ




Kiaora and welcome to New Zealand, a very unique and special island. There are two main reasons for this; One is our multicultural population and the other our isolated geographic location. New Zeland is filled with treasured kiwiana that we hope to share with you.

The jandal is a rubber sandal that was trade marked in New Zealand in 1940. It is easy to put on and sometimes slips off while you walk with them. These days you can get different coloured jandals with pictures on it.

The term tiki refers to a carved human figure and was and is part of the maori and other Pasifika peoples culture. If you look at the tiki you will see greenstone with red, grey and dark blue. The tiki is pre-European.

Badminton


“Yes! I finally get to play Badminton,this day has come”I have not played this game ever since I was five.”Hallelujah”!

Gazing at Donna(teacher who takes for badminton)hitting the shuttle expertly,she used both a forehand and a backhand.(basic ways to hold the racket)We then got a turn to do it ourselves.Eventually we had to keep on doing it.

Having so much fun enjoying it I wanted to to do it for the rest of the day but I couldn’t.Badminton was so cool.I was so excited.

Whizzing and whirring the shuttle sored through the air spiralling accurately to it’s own target.It spun round and round gliding through the air.As the shuttle flew in the air it came back down as I waited to hit it.

It was time to watch a trick shot so I decided to try it out myself .”Aw man I can’t do it.Well it was no use.

William Webb Ellis


The game of football was played at rugby school in 1750 to 1869.The game had no fixed limit of players on the field This sport caused major injuries resulting from the enormous rolling mauls.Handling of the ball was permitted but running with the ball was not.
In 1823 William Webb Ellis broke the rules by running with the ball towards the opposition’s goal. Slowly some rules changed and the game was called rugby.

Relaxing in my fantasy, I could see that there were all sorts of activities there were to do there.Trying to have the best time of my life,I decided to just lay under the shade of the palm tree leaves.
The day sadly came to a end,it crushed my heart. All my fun was wrecked.

''Watch out he's the one who robbed the man who invented the spaceship.
