Netbook Reflection

What I like about my netbook is playing games. I also like commenting on other peoples blogs. But my favourite thing has to be sharing my work with other people.


What I hate about the Internet is that it takes for long to load. Sometimes I get distracted by games when I am doing my work. What I also hate is that when I am doing my work it tries to reach google.


The differences about a netbook and a pencil and paper is that your hand get hurt when you write and you have to cross the word that you made a mistake with or rub it of. But when you use a netbook it is easier.


The hardest thing was getting distracted by games so I do not think I have been in the right place. The greatest challenge for me is doing what my teacher tells me on my netbook.


I would feel bad and if I was using pencil and paper I would suck it in and keep on working. But I might also feel a little bit angry.

Stardome


Sliding down the mountain I touched poo. Help! No one paid attention to me. Nooo!!! Sheep were close by as, I stood up and ran down the hill. Finally I got down but I bumped into wood and tripped. As I was closer to the sheep's they ran away.

King Kong and Slugs


Stupid King Kong was knowingly embarrassed. Knowingly embarrassed stupid King Kong cried. Embarrassing his friend knowingly, stupid King Kong felt bad. Knowingly embarrassed, stupid King Kong roared, and blew his friend away.

Creepy slugs unfortunately attempted to dance. Attempting to dance creepy slugs unfortunately tripped over. Unfortunately, while attempting to dance, creepy slugs scared there friends. Creepy slugs unfortunately attempted to sing to.

Alien Snot


Yuck! Slimy and smelly alien snot running down my hand. In classroom 13 we made alien snot.

The method for making alien snot is a bowl, a spoon, cornflour. a little bit of water, and green food coloring. First you have to pour some cornflour and water in the bowl and mix it. Then you pour some green food coloring in to and mix it again. Then you will have a sticky and icky alien snot.

While my team mates were mixing a little water with the cornflour and green food coloring it turned hard and it kind of smelt disgusting. My job was to look at it and see if it felt good.

What the snot felt like was like rock and it looked like play dough. As I put it on my hand it felt slimy. In the bowl it was hard and it was goopy.
Alien snot was the most DISGUSTING thing I have ever made.

Ice Cream Comets


“Yum yum” I said. Miss King told us we were going to make some ice cream comet. She even said that we were gonna put ice cream on our hand. “Disgusting” I whispered to myself.

As Miss King scooped a little bit of chocolate ice cream on my hand it dripped through my fingers. It was icy cold.
I went to Lesieli and she gave me some crushed biscuits, and some sprinkles. There were hundreds and thousands of colourful sprinkles. Next I said to Whaea Janeille “Can you give me a cone please?”

The ice cream felt yuck in my hand and so slimy. I rolled it into a ball, sprinkles were stuck on my fingers, I felt like licking them. “Mmm” they tasted minty.

Delicious! I tasted the ice cream comet and it was yummy. There were different textures on my tongue. The tail for the comet was the cone and the comet rock was the chocolate ice cream.

Such and tasty, yet icy treat.

Lift Off


A bright intense flame from the rocket lit up into the night sky. I was filled with nervous excitement. Sweat was falling from my nose as I was ready to go on the dangerous adventure in my space shuttle.

Preparing to launch I was filled with anticipation. “Ignition” the call said and I felt my stomach shuddering. Whispering to myself I was very scared “I wonder what it is going to be in space?”

Cutting through the sky the bottom of the rocket was filled of flames. A trail of smoke was left behind. The rocket launched and it sounded like an explosion.

Going up to space I really missed earth already. But maybe exploring space might be fun!

Warriors aginst Manly Sea Eagles


Me anga tatou ki te rekareka - Let’s have some fun! Rugby league brings people together. This was a very cool game that I have not missed. If you are are rugby league fan you would be so happy if you watched it.

While walking to the field the mighty strong warriors sang the National Anthem at the Aussie, Sydney stadium. So lucky that the game was on Saturday. “YEAH” My sister shouted “Manu Vatuvae scored the first try for the warriors”.

I felt unhappy that they lost there game. I bet the warriors are unhappy to. Manly Sea Eagles might be very happy that they won.

Alfajorcitos

Mmmm huele los alfajorcitos tan riquisimo.
Yesterday Miss King taught room13 how to make some alfajorcitos - an Argentinian treat.

Alfajorcitos can be made very huge and can’t even fit in your mouth. Miss King loved them so much she wanted to share it with us. Alfajorcitos are from Argentina.

What we need for alfajorcitos is dulce de leche, biscuits, and coconut. We grabbed two biscuits then we spread the dulce de leche on it and we rolled it in to the coconut. When we started eating it, it was yummy.

What I experienced of making and eating alfajorcitos was sweetness on my taste buds. The dulce de leche was tasty and it even tasted like caramel. The dulce de leche was gooey, sticky and runny to. I really enjoyed it.

The alfajorcitos was yummy in my tummy.

Aussie Rules


Down on the field near the cold and windy trees Megan and Allysa were ready to teach us some Aussie Rules skills. “WOHOO” I shouted, a break from class.

What I experienced about the changeable weather in New Zealand is that there are four seasons in a day. At first it rains but then the unpredictable weather changes and it becomes sunny. I mean what a special country we live in, “RIGHT!”

Having to learn skills from Aussie rules is fun but already I know a few like,bouncing the ball, drop punt and more. The skill that we practiced was bouncing the AFL ball. We started off by bending our knees, then we stood up after we were walking and running.

Kicking Base ball is like normal Base ball but you have to kick it instead of bating it. With the instructions stuck in my brain I knew just how the game go’s. As you kick the ball and the fielders catches it then your out. I felt proud of my self because I kicked the ball and nobody caught it so I made a home run just like Base ball.

Even with the changeable weather, we still learnt skills from Aussie Rules.

Badminton

As we served the shuttle It was soaring in the air like a bird. It was fun and enjoyable. We hit the shuttle accurately. I did a powerful hit so I can go overhead. Even though I swung the racket heaps of times, I kept missing the shuttle. Thea and Me were working as a team. Donna teaches me how to whack it if it come and I got better and better. As soon I served it to Thea again she stopped it and tryed to serve the shuttle to me but she couldn't so she just threw it and we kept on going.

Moving on to the next task was four hand and back hand we had to do it by our self. How to do it is put your hand left and right and you keep on going. It was frustrating for me because I hand to do quick body movements.

After we played badminton soccer but first Donna teaches us how to play it. When we new how to play it we began the game. We always have to do it overhead but to serve we do underhand. The game was better then the first one. Thea and Me Had the same score by then she had four and I had three. Thea scored the fist one.

Bread and CerealsFruit and VegesMilk and DairyMeat and FishWe need to eat a little bit of every thing.
Fats and sugar can be eaten occasionally but there amount should be limited. Water and milk are good for everyday. Juice and fizzy should be left for treats.
Eat the right food and live right. In order to live a happy life, eat a well balanced diet.

Sometimes jandals are called slippers.

William Webb Ellis

At Rugby School they played football. Players are allowed to hold the ball, but not run with it. There was no fixed limit of players. any number of players can play on the field. this caused lots of major injuries.

William ran with the ball in 1823 towards the opposition’s goal. In 1845 Rugby School wrote the first set the rules for rugby.

Rube Goldberg,Technology

Guss what!!!Last Friday we made a marble run we made it out of cardboard and some dominoes. In my group was Lesieli,Laita,Chyna,Flora and Wakatere and me but then I did my own marble run and they all went away and write about it on the computer. When I was doing my own marble run I was trying and trying and trying until it can work but I was still tried and I was trying a lot so it can work and I never gave up I tweaked heap of stuff but it was a little thing to tweak. It was a lot of fun doing the marble run. When my marble run worked Miss King and I were so so happy. It was fun when I was working with my team because we were planing and trying to make the marble run work but then when they went I was so bored and then miss King said that I have to change a little bit more so it can work. When I was doing my marble run go it was still fun because I was still talking to a person. When it had worked my hands were tiered and my back was sore. My groups slide was just normal like the slide that people slide on the park. The dominoes were just small and it is the color black and the dots are white. We made the slide out of hard cardboard. On our Rube Goldberg,technology we changed what did not work because it took along time to do it because we kept on failing. We solved our little problems. video

“Be home at midnight.” instructed the fairy godmother as Cinderella climbed in the coach. “Don’t worry about me.” Cinderella replied.

“Where are you going? the handsome prince asked as the clock struck midnight. “I have to leave goodbye” shouted Cinderella stumbling down the palace steeps.

“You’ll never go to the ball.” Screamed the ugly step sister as Cinderella was brushing her step sister hair.”But I have been invited too”Sobbed a tearful Cinderella when she was putting on her dress.

”Will you marry me?” asked the charming prince while down on bending knee. “Oh yes.I love you” screamed Cinderella falling into the prince’s arms.

Chirstchurch Earth Quake

On Tuesday 22nd February 2011,Christchurch was shaken by a 6.3 magnitude earthquake, at 5km deep, at 12.51pm.The earthquake at Christchurch caused a great deal of damage.

The earthquake was a disaster, like a volcano, but this earthquake destroyed the whole of Christchurch city. Big dust clouds choked the city, thankfully when it rained the dust settled slightly.

Damage on the roads and the drive ways caused by liquefaction and cracks, has caused many traffic jams. Some cars even crashed and parked fell from the car park way up high.

On the news, a woman had heaps of blood on her face and two people carried her to get help, because they cared about her. Another man had blood on his head and it got wrapped with a white bandage.

Many people in Christchurch have passed away, we still don’t know how many people, but I hope that my prayer tonight will help Christchurch. Houses have been destroyed and so lots of people are sleeping in their cars and in local parks.

A great deal of the buildings in Christchurch are destroyed and nearly every body has been effected. The people that have rescued the others, have put in so much good effort. They are respected and amazing.
