Our BIG Suprise

Guess what happened today? No you're wrong we didn't finish school, but christmas did come early today and it came in a sleigh (a white ford van).When the variety charity Johnson & Johnson and MOTAT  came along with piles of presents donated to the school which I thought was very generous. Every single person in the school got gifted a present. In my present was a checkers board game.

On behalf of Point England School I would just love to thank everyone who generously donated the prezys to the students in my school. You guys must have spent thousands on us I very much appreciate it.

Action World

FRIDAY LAST WEEK WAS AWESOME because we went to action world a fun filled place filled with many activities big and small from a trampoline to a trapeze. and guess what our whole year group got to go.


Our first activity was the jump n slide I was the first one on it and i did a front flip. On my second turn I did a huge back-flip fail and just about landed on my head. Later on I mastered the backflip.


Not long after that they opened the jousting bridge. I grabbed the plastic pole with big fat pillows on the end and before you new it i was on the bridge smashing my sister. I hit her once and I hit her twice and the third time I hit her it was lights out Sina.

So overall it was a great day at action world. I cant wait till i go next time.

Netbook Reflection

This year the most valuable thing that I have improved is probably my movie making before I came into Miss Kings class. My lip syncing was out of time and my camera angles were horrible but now you should see the stuff that I am creating.

Miss King was the one who introduced me to scratch so i set a challenge to myself and made some awesome games. you can check them out on scratch.mit.edu

I have actually learnt how to ride the unicycle this year thanks to the internet. I even got on a six foot unicycle I literally had to climb onto it.

This year I have really learnt to think much more.I have learnt to participate in many more things that would usually be out of my comfort zone. I still need to work on managing myself and my time.

Nelson Mandela

July 18th 1918 was the day that nelson mandela a man with a great heart was born. He believed that black people were just as intelligent and worthy of being leaders as white people.He just wanted people to be people as a group not white people       and        black people he just wished for equality and after a long life he achieved his goal and this is how.




At the age of seven nelson attended his first school in Qunu here he lived an alright life.But his life took a turn for the worst when his dad died from a disease called tuberculosis mandela was only 9.



After he graduated from uni with a bachelor of arts degree he was sentenced to prison for treason which means he was going against his country when really he was fighting for equality. Unfortunately that means going against whites.



After 27 years of sleeping on a 1cm mattress with a bucket as a toilet he was released. later on he became the first black president of RSA. he merged black people and white people together as one nation.

unfortunately mandela died on the fifth of december 2013.he has made an impact on many people in the world and that is mandellas story.

Truffles

"MMMMMM" Today we made chocolate truffles with Miss King. We used condensed milk ,biscuits, marshmallows, dark chocolate and cocoa powder. We mixed all the ingredients together and it became a chunky mixture with little soft pillows inside. We then made them into little balls and rolled them around in coconut. AND THEN for the best part of the process eating it.

Goosey

Today I have learnt what a static image is. A static image is a still image ,I have picked this image to talk about. This picture is about newborn gosling going to their first pond with their mum. This picture is heart-warming because i love animals. The main color in this picture is green.the shot that the photographer has used is refered to as a long shot. I think my photo is unique because  this sight is only seen in one season a year.And that is why I love spring.

Future Aspirations


Yesterday a man called Andrew Patterson brought a group of intelligent people aging from 12 to 38. They were all very inspiring but who inspired me most was Mosa Mafileo because he grew up in a very poor family and turned into a great politician.

Although when I grow up I don't want to be in politics. What he said inspired me to follow my dream which is to work with animals one way or another. I really want to be a exotic animal vet.

David And Roxxie


“David take the dog for a walk” Ema exclaimed. So David grabbed the dog leash, got Roxxie the riled up rottweiler hooked up and took him for a walk. They left off towards the forest, strolled along the dry dirty track which led up to the dark forest.

Roxxie dragged David along ,as Roxxie weighed 10 kgs more than David.  They got deeper into the forest the winds started blowing harder, branches fell off trees and Roxxie pulled till the leash nearly snapped. David Felt scared and nervous. All of a sudden there was a whisper “David David” the dog stopped heaving  .David spun round and round looking for someone whispering his name, When really it was Roxxie. Roxxie could talk!

The winds died down and Roxxie stopped whispering . David was relieved because he just thought he was delusional , he thought it was just the trees whistling in the wind. But really he had a talking dog. David and Roxxie  then made it back to the house without a care in the world.

Eagle vs Squirrel

Soaring through the thick cloud an eagle hurdled towards Earth. It swooped down and picked up a squirrel. I watched from the park bench helplessly as the eagle flew back up. I thought to myself “that’s just the circle of life”.

A few minutes later the eagle was back. “Back for another bite” I mumbled. It looked like it was going to hit the ground it gained speed plunging downwards. I saw a small figure on his back, it was the squirrel.
It was actually controlling the bird.

The squirrel jumped off the eagle and got in a fighting position. It scratched the eagle in the face and the eagles eye fell out and rolled along the stony footpath. The squirrel jumped on the eagles back and clawed him to the death. And the squirrel lived happily ever after.

Halloween


HALLOWEEN

Halloween all started when the christians tried to put a positive spin to pagan festivals. For example lemuria, Lemuria may 13 was christianised and turned into all saints day and then it was moved 1st of november and was turned into all hallows day, the day before was called all hallows evening and was shortened to halloween on the 31st of october. So Halloween actually is a christianised version of Lumeria

Thanksgiving


Thanksgiving is a celebration only celebrated in  the U.S and Canada ,although it is not celebrated on the same day it is for the same purpose. For giving thanks to the harvest and of the preceding year.

In the U.S it’s celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November but in Canada they celebrate thanksgiving on the second Monday of October.



In canada it is a compulsory holiday in all of the provinces except for New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. Even though businesses can stay open in these provinces a lot of people still celebrate it in those places.




Thanksgiving is normally celebrated by having a huge meal which normally consists of a turkey, peas,corn,potatoes,pumpkin pie and much more. People usually get the whole family including aunts,uncles,grandparents and of course your normal family.

Auckland vs Syria

The writing in the black is an Auckland kids life. The red is the life of a Syrian kid.





“OMG” I said as I pressed the snooze button on my alarm. Ten minutes later “Beep Beep Beep”. It was time to get up. I walked into the kitchen and was greeted by the sweet smell of bacon and eggs. I sat down and stuffed my face with a delicious platter of  B&E.


I woke up to the horrifying sound of gunshots. The ground was not a comfortable place to sleep all nine hours of the night. I got up out of the tent to the intimidating sight of dead bodies. “Will this be my day to die”? I said to myself.




I brushed my teeth and washed my face, then I got into the car and drove to school. It’s about a 5-10 min drive to school. I got out of the car and went to class. ”sup bro” I said to my friend.

“Go to work, we need the money” my brother said. So I started my 45min journey to the hospital to work as a surgeon assistant to earn one dollar a hour, just to get me a snack. I got to work greeted by a huge line of injured patients wanting meds and surgery. Some didn’t even have limbs.



At school I do learning on our netbooks and multi-media. My favourite subject in school is maths. We do P.E. and after our lunch time. During lunch I ate a chicken roll, chocolate milk and it was delicious. The lunch bell rung and I went and played.

“Get to work” the surgeon said “Yes” I whimpered back. I started handing out meds to the patients. Many patients grabbed me and begged me for surgery. As hard as it was I had to refuse.



I made my way home after another casual day at school. Another ten minute drive back home.I got myself home and plonked myself on the couch with a bag of chips. That night I had  pork belly for dinner and fell asleep without a care in the world.


I walked home dodging falling buildings with only five dollars in my pocket. I found a lady selling apples on the side of the road I bought four. When I arrived I  gave two apples to my brother. That night I cried myself to sleep.

The Three Hairy Apes

Three Hairy Apes ............................................................................................................................................



Characters
Ape 1- Cyborg
Ape 2- Kuniunicle
Ape 3- Octshovabulair
T-Rex- Trixinator

Once upon a time there live three apes Cyborg which is the smallest, Kuniunicle which is the middle size and Octshovablair which is the big fat meaty ape. “ Our banana tree has run out of bananas” said Cyborg. Kuniunicle Shouted “ I can see another tree and it’s full of yellow juicy bananananananananas.They needed a plan. They spotted a vine hanging from a solid branch but they have to swing on a vine to get across to the juicy tree. There is one problem it has a t-rex living under it. The t-rex was sleeping and the apes were ready to swing across when they saw the vines, but they woke up the t-rex who tries to eat them. The T-Rex roared- “rah rah rah rah”. Cyborg the anorexic one says “don’t eat me please I’m too little i’ve got no meat wait for the next one”. Kuniunicle is the medium size one that said “don’t eat me wait for the fat one”. Octshovabulair is obese that swang on the vine, then suddenly the vine broke, then ape squashes the t-rex while his bums clapping and doing a large earthquake fart.They finally all made it to the other side, “Thank the lord that we made it to these juicy bananas” said Kuniunicle. “Are you thinking what i’m thinking” said Cyborg. Octshovablair then replied “Yeah gee let’s twerk it out”. So in celebration and triumph they ate all the juicy bananas while twerking, and they all lived happily ever after. They then formed a dance crew and became back up dancers for Chris Brown.

Shang Haig's Adventure

Climbing the treacherous cliff,  Shang Haig hung on to unsteady rock. Gripping the rock with one hand, his muscles ached and ached as pulled himself up. Shang Haig  was determined to reach the Dojo. Finally he stood on steady ground. He could see the dojo in the distance. Although Shang Haig was fatigued he persevered and kept trudging along until the dojo was right in front of his eyes.  

Staring at the solid hefty door, he nervously knocked. Shang Haig could hear the footsteps of Sensei John. Opening the door sensei did not look happy as sensei mumbled “HUH!” and pointed to his right. Shang Haig was sad because he felt rejected. he thought he needed to meditate to get the sensei respect.  So he meditated day and night. Shang Haig took a peek and sensei was standing in front the doorway and pointed away again and slammed the door.

His head and shoulders drop and Shang Haig once again trudged away.  He turned around with anger clenched his fists and   Shang Haig was prepared fight sensei John. Sensei pointed to his right again and all along he was just pointing at a sign.

My Made Up Story

It was a cold, dark, gloomy night. I stumbled upon an abandoned hut deep in the heart of the forest. I was just about to enter the hut, when suddenly I saw a long light beam coming from the distance. It looked like a car and was coming at top speed straight towards the hut. I hid in the closest bush.

The car reached the hut and skidded to a halt. I could hear hear the screeching gravel underneath the wheels. The car was rusty and was a big four wheel drive. The driver jumped out, along with a gun and dragging a deer by its antlers. The man went inside the hut. I was so eager to find out what he was doing in there so I did a little camp out and stayed the night hidden behind a bush. After that night, the sun began to rise and the man had abandoned his hut once again.

His car was out of sight and I had finally built up the courage to enter the hut. Inside it was like heaven.There was a kitchen with a gun hanging up next to it, a bedroom ,a computer that didn’t work and a couch.  Since that first night, he didn't return again. I have lived in that hut til this very day.

The Heart Attack Grill


I think that the heart attack grill should not be able to open a restaurant in G.I,auckland. in my opinion Glen Innes already has enough fast food restaurants .


first of all their food is disgustingly unhealthy , their fries are deep fried in animal fat (LARD) and you are aloud as many as you want. The burgers are literally dripping with fat and none of us need a burger 8 patties high.


He is using obese people to promote his restaurant.His food actually killed his spokesperson because he was willing to feed him as much as he wanted for free. People over 158 kg eat for free as many times as they want, which is basically killing people.


The owner of the restaurant is promoting obesity through his food.The restaurant offers as many fries as you can stuff in your mouth, sugar and fat, fat ,fat.                                  


The counter argument is that the man that owns the restaurant (John Basso) thinks that he is giving a positive message to the public.  I believe he is just making fat people more fat and eventually killing you. Is this place a restaurant  or a murder scene.


So it is a strong no from me, and i'm sure at least 75% of the people of G.I will agree. John Basso should definitely not be able to open up The Heart Attack Grill in G.I.

Making Bread


Today, we made a tray of very delicious bread. We also had miss kings mum come to teach us how to make the bread. Mixing and pouring, we put together all the ingredients into a big bowl
. After we put together all the things in and mixed it all up it turned into dough we put it on the table. We then kneaded the dough and made it into all shapes and sizes.

On the tray and ready to go into the oven. We waited for at least ten minutes. Waiting patiently, out came the bread. It looked really YUM. I wanted to eat it ASAP as it came out. Quickly power walking to class, I jumped like a wild animal because I really wanted to munch it like a boss.  

Grabbing my bread roll, I cut it in half and I spread the butter all inside. Then I popped it in my mouth and it tasted sweet and delicious. lets hope we can make some more someday. I would just like to say thanks to mother king, for getting the ingredients and giving up her time to show us how to make bread. If you would like to make some bread of your own here is the recipe.

Will.i.am


Will.i.am songs are inspring, it has many encourigng lyrics. His new Song had came out andwe took a look at it. It had words that I didn’t understand but miss king told us what they meant. Now we know what they mean and we are going to share our information with you.

The lyrics are about him growing up in a very tough and poor community,  he then grew up to be a very rich and wealthy man. To me these lyrics drive me along and helps me to believe my dreams and never give up on them.

The reason we are writing about this is because will.i.am himself came to our school and donated 100,000 dollars ,yes you read right one hundred thousand dollars towards the manaiakalani trust. Will.i.am is a very genorus and kind hearted man.

Why Do We Have Easter Eggs



Why do we celebrate Easter with Easter eggs . Is it because of jesus dying or maybe the earth was hatched from an egg on the 29th of march it could all just be a myth but there is one quite reasonable reason.


The egg is a symbol of birth life. So maybe the first thing that jesus saw was an egg when he came to life (because he was born in a barn). Hen lay eggs so do lizards and many more animals and when they hatch a new life is made. So I think it is fair to say that an egg is a great  symbol of life.

My Life Theory


People are cool we own the earth but why were we made, was it to love care die or just live life by ourselves. Our lives have a time limit 122 years and 164 days max so what do we do with life. Here is my theory. We are here for a reason to help others, to lend a hand when one needs it. Because if no one was here with you what's the point who would make dinner for you ,you can’t just rock up to KFC and ask for 2 buckets of original chicken. You might as well just die. But there are people around ,so all your life just be kind because if you're happy everyone around you is happy

My 100 Word Story

Finally the holidays are here, I thought to myself. Pouring my cereal, the pitter patter of  the nutri grain competes with the thunder outside. Worst start to the holiday ever. “Get in the car we are going to the supermarket” exclaimed Mum. I hopped in the car, but the seat belt was jammed so I just went along with it . Driving along the wet  road, with windscreen wipers at full speed, suddenly the car stopped. As it crashed into a blue Ford, shards of glass went flying in every direction and that was the end of me, myself and I .

Rods Night At Work


What is this mysterious round object Rod thought as he dropped his cup through it .
After stealing a chocolate bar Rod peered around and saw a door that lead to a safe full of money.
Inside the safe rod sat weeping and knocking the walls of the bullet proof safe.
Cunningly, Rod walked around  looking for ways to get in to mischief .
With ease Rod grabbed bundles of money out of the safe.
Walking towards the vending machine Rod took no notice of the safe of money.
Putting his hand through the paper he wondered what it was.
Dark and round the black circle sat on a blank paper.
"I never should have crawled through the paper" weeped Rod.
The black hole fell of the safe.
