My EXTREME Memory!!!!!!!!!

My favourite memory was when I got to meet my cousin named Patrinah. She lived all the way in Australia. I'd never met her before until that day. We used to talk to each other over the telephone and  we'd stay up for hours talking to each other, and when she finally came, we had the longest hug ever. It  was so exciting getting to meet her because I'd been waiting to meet her my whole life. She lives in Brisbane which is along the eastern coast of Australia. My nana went to pick her up from the airport around six o'clock, and when they got home, I was so shocked because she was 13 years old but she was as tall as a door. When she trotted through the door she had to duck under the door frame.

When the weekend swung around my aunt, uncle, brother, Patrinah and I went to Rainbows End. Patrinah was so happy because she had never been to Rainbows End before and she always wished she could go to our theme park. When we arrived at Rainbows End, Patrinah and I rushed to the queue and waited to pay for our tickets. While we walked through the gates it felt like heaven because I hadn't been there in a long time. My uncle, aunty and brother went to one family attraction called The Log Flume. So Patrinah and I happily trotted off to another attraction.

The first attraction that we went to was the pirate ship. When we got on Patrinah and I felt sort of scared because we had never been on the pirate ship. Suddenly the ship started to rock, back and forth, back and forth, back and forth, until the ship got to it's highest peak. The ship stormed down and both our stomachs dropped. When the ship stopped my head was so dizzy, it felt like my head was in the clouds. The biggest and scariest ride that we had ever been on was the stratosphere. First we went onto the less extreme. We rode the less extreme a few times then we moved onto the FULL EXTREME. When the stratosphere started to swing my stomach felt liked it had butterflies in it.

When the day ended I was sad but my happiness grew more and more, everyday!!!!!!!

Back At School!

Back At School!

The school holidays are finally over, and we are back at school now. We are past halfway through the year. My favourite days in the holidays was the 14th and the 15th of July. They are my favourite because I went to my friends birthday and had loads of fun. We went to the Stardome on one day and Gravity on the other. It is going to be a busy term this term, we have lots of hard work to do, and we are also going to be doing my favourite sport too, NETBALL! In a few weeks time we are going to have Inter-school netball, it's going to be great fun. 
My maths goal this term is to learn every single multiplication tables from 6-12.

The Best Book Ever!!!- Inna Furey

This term Riiana and I read a story called Inna Furey. The story was about a girl named Inna Furey that had two personalities. Inna had a personality of a bird and of a girl. At school Inna was getting bullied. Leanne had noticed it but hadn't done anything. Later on in the book Inna had gone missing. Leanne lived by a reserve where all the kids from school played. One night she wanted to go exploring in the reserve because that is where Inna had gone missing. She found Inna on the rope swing that was hanging from the tree.

St. Kentigern Sports Day!!!

Today we had St. Kentigern students come to our school. They play a few games with us. My team warmed up with a little game, the game we played was a game where you had to find a partner, and try to touch each others knees, the other person had to try and jump away before their knee or knees got touched. After that we played a game of soccer or football. One of the games of soccer that we played had one ball then our coach from St. Kent's threw another ball into the game.

It's fun having St. Kent's at our school, we are so lucky and thankful!

Righting The Wrongs- Reading!

Today at school I read an article about the pole tax that Chinese New Zealanders had to pay before they entered the country. They had to pay poll tax because the government back then was really racist.

It was a really interesting story to read. It was interesting to read because I was interested in the way the government used to treat people.

What Happens When You Are Bitten By An Insect?

What Happens When You Are Bitten By An Insect?

WALT to explain what happens before and after you are bitten by an insect.

Why do mosquitoes bite you ask?
Mosquitoes bite because our blood is their food. Only the female mosquito bite. Well they don’t actually bite they suck our blood. Did you know that mosquitoes find children tastier than adults… that's crazy right?

You might be playing outside and suddenly hear a buzzing noise, you think you are just hearing things but then you feel a tingling sensation.

First you feel the tingling sensation getting stronger and then you start itching really really badly. When you scratch it you get this feeling and is so sensational you keep on scratching till it gets too sore.

You stop because you start to notice that there is a red lump that is starting to emerge. The spot where you have scratched will start to turn to a reddish colour. Some people may or may not feel the bite. If you scratch even more well then it might just get infected. If it does get infected it will be sore and really red, it might also have a white lump right in the middle of the BIG RED INFECTION!

If you don’t have any cream from the pharmacy then you can just use:
  • Vinegar
  • Aloe
  • A dry bar of soap, baking soda and water.

The next day you should see the bump slowly disappearing. Come to the following week and your arm or leg is not infected any more.

These paragraphs of writing are explaining to people...
