Our Fantastic Trip - July 28 2010

As we were sailing on the deep blue sea, past the shore during our trip to Maritime Museum, the icy wind was biting my face. The big strong waves were lapping against our ship and our sails were luffing as we sailed towards the wind. The force of the wind blew my hair, as if i was a rock star. It was freezing out on the harbour yesterday.

Playing XBox 360 with my cousins!! - July 11 2010

In the holidays me and my cousins were playing xbox 360. The game that I was playing with my cousins was Halo 3 O.D.S.T. It's a game where you go finding your friends or whoever you're playing with and shoot them. The kills are up to any number under 250. The game is fun and skillful.

The Islands of Tonga - July 6 2010

The islands of Tonga are relaxing but pretty hot. The beach gives you a good view around the deep blue sea and down town. When you go to the beach it reminds you of Fiji because of the fabulous coconut trees and the nice warm sun. I think that the islands of Tonga are pretty nice islands to go to.

Warriors vs Sydney Roosters July 6 2010

Kevin Locke needed a strecher to exit AMI Stadium. It was the roosters who were left behind feeling sick. With only 53 seconds the wingers knew what the had to get a hat-trick try. Lock threw him self to the try line hitting the goal post knowing that he wouldn't let his team down.

Israel Folau is Best! July 7 2010

Israel Folau is the best! The only reason why the Brisborne Broncos always win their matches is because Israel Folau is always there for his team, waiting on the side for a kick, so he can jump and get a try. Israel Folau is like a raven when he jumps in the air and scoops the ball.He is like a crushing bulldozer when he runs up and bumps them off. Israel is the best at stepping.

WWE Wrestling - July 6 2010

WWE stands for world wrestling entertaining. Undertaker the phenomenom from dead valley was the world heavy weight champion until Y2j Chris Jericho defeated Undertaker in a singles match.

Chris Jericho was angry and he finished Undertaker off with his devastating move - the walls of Chris Jericho.

State of Origin - July 5 2010

New South Wales are warming up for the big game for the State Of Origin Shield. ''Just look at Jarred Hayne from NSW sprinting around the stadium field 120 meters waiting to get a run away try''. ''So just look at Bret White from New South Wales doing 40 push ups hardening up his shoulders and chest for some big tackles and for some big bump offs ''. They're ready to go on to the slippery cold foggy field.

It's time for the big game.
Johnathan Thurston kicks it off. What's this? Jarred Hayne gets the ball and steps Darren Lockeyer he sprints past his team like fifty meters and gets speared by Steve Price. The second rower passes it to Anthony Minichiello and he bumps Steve Price off and gets a try now its 4-0 and New South Wales are wining by three. Now New South Wales got 4 trys and it is finished. New South Wales won and beat Queensland plus they had won the State of Origin Shield.
NSW 20 - Queensland 4

He Tangata, He Tangata, He Tangata - June 21 2010

We made this movie as part of a competition for the Auckland Museum. These were the people involved: Dillon, Hosannah, James, Kingston P, Mary L, Osana, Ramona.
Lots of schools from all over Auckland entered the competition. We were delighted to find out that we had made the finals. We got to go to the awards ceremony at the museum too. Keisha Castle-Hughes even gave out the prizes!
The idea of our movie is that even though technology has changed throughout the years, people are still the most important thing in our lives.
All of us enjoyed making the movie. We were so excited to find out that we had won the most Creative Storytelling category. We think our movie is just AWESOME - What do you think?

Iron Brion May 6 2010

Yesterday I learnt at Iron Brion, that the red meat is better then the light red meat because the red meat like beef or lamb has more iron then the light red meat.The light red meat is not as good for you, because it doesn't give you as much iron in it. Did you know that hamburgers are good for you? Hamburgers are good for you because it gives you energy and something called zinc that keeps you from getting sick.

Volcanic Pressure - April 22 2010

On Monday afternoon, Room 14 had been learning about pressure by blowing up long thin balloons. As room 14 was blowing their thin balloons they were puffing, blowing and straining. With no warning the pressure caused the balloon to pop just like a volcano exploding.
We learnt about how magma can heat up inside the magma chamber, pressure builds and explodes like an active volcano.

Favourite thing at Camp - March 24 2010

It was midnight Lorenzo Max and I could hear some pretty angry teachers walking around.
''Go to sleep'' screamed Miss Garden.
''HaHaHaHa'' Max and Lorenzo laughed.
''Shut up you guys or else we are going to get caught eating our biscuits'' I growled at them.
''Relax, anyway, they're not our parents. They can't tell us what to do''Lorenzo said grumpily.
''You're right'' I whispered gently.We looked at Max we could hear something ''Poor Max has done a fart'' I shouted.We tried to tell him to be quiet but he didn't hear us, he was snoring.
