New Zealand Conversation.

In room 19 we have had to research about the country for the rugby world cup. We were given New Zealand.
“Where is New Zealand in the world?” asked Racheal.
“Well New Zealand is in Oceania,” replied Gabby.

“Do you have a favorite rugby player in the New Zealand team?”.
“Yes! My favorite player in the All Blacks is Ma’a Nonu,.Who is your favorite rugby player?” I asked.

“My favorite rugby player is the key player Daniel Carter, I like him because of his awesome kicks,.What is the capital of N.Z?”.
“Well the capital of N.Z is Wellington,”

“What is the population of N.Z?”
“The population is 4.4 million people,”

“Does N.Z have a nation dish?”
“Yes this is my favorite bit about food!”. The dish is nation wide and it is called Hangi that is when you gather food such as potatoes, kumara, pork and many more vegetables and cook it in the ground .Are there any other things that you want to know about N.Z,”

“Yes what is the meaning of the flag?”
“In the top left hand corner is a bit of the England flag because of the royal family and the four stars represent the southern cross,”.

“Thanks for you time Gabby,”

“Your welcome Racheal,”

Silly Sports Day

"Do we have Sports day today?" I yelled "how come our class didn't know about it?" I question Sharon. "This was really unexpected" I thought to my self, but at the same time really exciting, I wanted to see what sort of Sports that they were going to line up for today.

On Tuesday team five got all lined up and ready for a fun session of Silly Sports. We all strolled over to the bottom field where the equipment was set up, this was going to be exciting.

First up A Ball On A Spoon, it sounds easier than it is. We had to have partners with our legs tied together with a piece of sheet. My partner was Leni. "Ahhhhh!" Leni yelled as we both fell over with our ball rolling away from us. I tripped up on her leg and almost face planted on the ground "haaaa" I sighed, that was close.

With water splashing everywhere I didn't want to play I was still in my uniform. We got put into teams, the people in my team didn't know how to do team work. Jonty was mucking around, he was taking for ever just to squeeze out the water from the sponge into the bowl. Leni and I had soaked shoes because of all the boys in our team. It was fun because it was a hot day and that was the only water activity.

We hopped on to the next activity, Mrs Langitupu's objective of the game was to catch and get out the other players in the opposite team with out moving with the ball in your hand. There were four teams Blue, Yellow, Red and Green, I was in the Yellow team. The first colour we played against was green, we won then the next colour that we played against was Blue. No-wonder why the other team got out so fast because they were all boys except for Millney, she was the only girl because they were all boys and they knew how to communicate with each other. When it was their turn with the ball they were as fast as a hare, they got my team out in just minutes.

My favorite Silly Sport on that day was Mrs Nua's game because she had water involved with it and because it was really enjoyable.

The girl in the grey had a maid
Who seldom, in fact never, got paid
She was very tall ,
Had a head like a ball
The girl in the grey with a maid.

I got this photo from People Stock Photo's.

If I was a Vampire
I would stay young forever,
If I was a Vampire
I would eat Leni,
If I was a Vampire
I would rob the bank,
If I was a Vampire
I would go to King of the Mountain and win the race,
If I was a Vampire
I would be friends with Edward Collin.

Kiwi Glen Martin is the inventor of the Martin Jet pack that can fly like a bird.

The Jet pack wasn't flying that high that the U.S media laughed and joked around about his invention that made him more determined to make it happen.

He said he would use a remote machine to control it at first with a crash dummy, then if its good enough than a person can act as pilot.

The Martin Jet pack that flew at Ashburton recently with a rocket propelled parachute flying over 5,000 mt high above sea level and landed safely.

This invention can do what a helicopter cant do such as fly around the sides of a cliff in between sides of a building and trees.

Looking Back Looking Forward

Last term I wasn't pleased with myself as I didn’t really finish my work off. I talked a lot to my friends. My attitude was alright but it wasn’t good enough for me. The highlight for me last term was getting our new Net Books. My worst improvement last term was not finishing my work and talking too much.

This term I am looking forward to taking our Net Books home and working on them. I will finish my work now that we will be taking them home. Last Term I really liked to play games that’s why I didn’t finish my work off. I will also be looking forward to playing Rugby this season

My thoughts about Camp.

The count down is starting just 3 more days until camp. “YEAH!!!” I cant wait to see what sort of activities that we are doing. I have huge butterflies in my stomach I just cant wait. The camp name for this year is could “Take Charge”. Being the first year 8’s is really cool because we are doing different things from last years camp.

The group that I am in is Responsiablez. There are other groups like Respectablez , Carez, Motavatiez, and the Thinkers. Yesterday we did some group challenges the first one was make up a group chant and the second one was to get across the hall with 4 chairs stuck together , 4 class chairs and one mat. The first time we did it we failed the second time we did we made it. I cant wait until Camp.
