My Imagination

As I was Dreaming, I imagined that I was in a  different world called “Wasteland”. It smelled horrible and I tried to find my way back to Earth but it was on the other Galaxy. I was walking for hours and hours until I heard a noise “Woosh!” And I turned as fast as I could and said “Hello!” As loud as I can then “Woosh!” I knew that there was someone here. I heard a breathing noise behind my back. So I looked back and saw a Ninja running everywhere parkouring off the car then onto the roof and I felt a little strange.

I kept walking, keeping on eye at every sight. Trying my hardest to find the Ninja again. As I walked around the corner I once more saw the Ninja but it did not know I was here so I grabbed a stick and sneakily walked behind him. Before I could hit the ninja It turned around and threw a ninja star right past my head. I was shocked so I threw the stick at him and chop it in half with a Katana. I ran away as fast as I could until he came running after me.

I hid under some garbage bags and the ninja ran past by. The next morning a teleporter came out of nowhere so I ran as fast as I could to go before it goes away. I jumped like a spring going through the teleporter. Then suddenly I got woken up in my bad and I thought it was real.

Year 7 Team Building

The 29th of November 2012. We Year 7’s had an opportunity to do some fun activities, while the year 8’s were at their transitions at Tamaki Collage. I was Excited to do some fun Activities with the other year 7's. 7 Groups were made and I had: Crusader, James, Tevita, Raenan, Alex, Britney, Hosannah, Roezela, Brooklyn, Ashleigh, and myself.

The first activity we did is to build and create a Christmas tree out of paper and foil. As we finished making the tree, I thought our tree look like it was not going to win the competition. We were all nervous about our Christmas tree. All groups had to sing a Christmas song and we all sang Silent Light. We were singing the song nervously as we get to finish with a around of applause All the other groups were funny and entertaining to watch.

The second activity was Creating and shooting. We were all excited to be launching something at someone. We all have to hold hands to transport through the obstacles. As Mr.Barks said On Your Marks Get Set And Go! and I got pulled like a doll running as fast as we can getting through the Hula Hoop Without our hands Disconnecting. As we got through the Hula Hoop and got our equipment to build and Create a Slingshot. I was holding the handle and when they fire the paper ball at Crusader The handle whipped up my jaw and I fell on the ground and it hurt. We lost because the balloons were our points and they all popped and we felt anxious about coming last place for that.

Our team only came 2nd for winning the Christmas tree competition and only got 1 lollie each and we were all happy about 2nd place.

Bushfire "Camping In The Woods"

As Kevin was about to go camping with his three friends named Kobe,Tupac and Tau. He had a phone call. Kevin answered the phone and it was Kobe. He told him to go to the forest and thats where they were camping. 45 minutes later, Kevin arrived at the forest and saw Kobe and Tau but he wondered where Tupac was. Kobe said that Tupac hasn’t come yet. 20 minutes later, Tupac arrived just in time to have lunch. After they ate their lunch they were starting the fire because it was getting dark.

Tupac and Tau went to go in the forest to look for wood. We got back at the campsite and Kobe and Kevin were gone and Tupac thought that where they went. Tau saw some fire from the other side of the forest. Tupac saw Kobe and kevin at the fire and Tupac yelled “Kobe! , Kevin!” but they cannot hear.

Kobe and Kevin tried to run away from the fire. They both got back and told us to pack our stuff and leave the forest immediately. Fire Trucks came out of nowhere and started to hose the fire down. The bushfire was insane that trees started to fall on roads. Kevin started the car and left immediately passing through fire trucks as they come on opposite lane. Kevin dropped us all off at the bus station because he was low on gas.

First Person To Jump Off A Chopper 2,400 ft With No Parachute

42 Year Old Gary Connery was one of the people to jump off with no parachute from a devastating height 731 metres tall. Everybody was anxious and amazed when he had jumped off the chopper with faith. He landed on 16,800 boxes of cardboard as everyone clapped and got worried that he would be injured. He came out with a big smile and a exhausted face. Cheering after what happened popping the lid off the wine.

Wingsuits are special suits that slow people down decreasing their speed.

The London Games 2012

The London games started with excitement, spectators cheering on the athletes in the parade as the crowd went wild. Spectators from all around the world hoping the athletes try their best. The Olympics is a time of opposite emotions as I show below.

As soon as the 100m finals came on, people were quiet and anxious. The gun went off, “Bang!” Usain Bolt had a good start, behind him was Yohan Blake. Bolt ran first with Blake placing second. Both were proud getting gold and silver for Jamaica.

Nick Willis, from New Zealand, had the second fastest heat time to qualify for the 1500m running race. He was super excited to be in the finals! In the final he was running well until the last 100m, finally coming 9th place out of 12 athletes. He was disappointed about it.

Valerie Adams is the best New Zealand women's Shot-Put ever and was defending her Olympic title in London. She lost to an athlete called Nadzeya Ostapchuk who took first place with 21.36m throw. Valerie Adams came second place with 20.70m and she was not happy winning a silver medal and losing her Olympic title. A Russian lady, Kolodko Evgeniia, coming in third place.

The Olympics can be happy and sad, ecstatic and disappointing. It's not about winning but striving to succeed!

Thanks Mr H for helping me edit this.

Water Safe

Water Safety is the most important thing that can save your life from drowning. Improvised means is when you are not prepared for something. Life jackets have special floatation devices that are called foam or it could be inflatable. Many kind of objects will increase your survival time like a plank wood or a log. There are 2 positions called the help position and a huddle position if there is more than 2 people. The help position is Heat Escape Lessening Posture which you cross both of your arms over your chest. It'll prevent heat lost and more survival time. The huddle position is where you get into a group hug but the little ones are in the middle. That are all the things you need if you are improvised.

Going After Humbug

Granddad sended the photo to Seymour and Jax’s dad. 3 years later, The doorbell was ringing and Jax and Seymour came running to the door. Seymour opened it and it was there dad. Seymour and Jax was surprised that they haven’t seen their dad in 3 years.

They were all going to see Humbug "The Fast Brown Duck" 1 last time. They were in the car like flash. 20 kilometres away from the lake. It started to rain as they all got out. They couldn't find Humbug in the lake or in its nest. They found Humbug behind the tree as his leg was broken.

They took Humbug to the care center to get the ducks leg fixed. Seymour and Jax wanted to see Humbug again but the duck cannot swim fast anymore. The doctor said “do you want to keep the duck as a pet” Seymour and Jax really wanted a pet in their home so they all said yes.

They all came home safe with and they all lived happily ever after with a duck.

Thanks for editing my work Max.

The Manaiakalani Film Festival 2012

On Wednesday the 15 of November 2012, the year 7's & 8's went to the Manaiakalani film festival at Sylvia Park. As we all got to the theatre, lots of children from other schools came to the theatre as well. I thought we were not going to fit in the theatre because there wasn't enough seats . The lights were off and people started to cheer and clap. The movie's from other schools were exciting and interesting, one of them were very funny like room 18's. It came to the end for the year 7 & 8's to leave. We had to leave the theatre as soon as possible for Tamaki college because they had 2 more movie's left to watch. I really had fun watching everybody's movie from other schools.

Volcano Eruption In Guatemala

I am going to talk about how a volcano erupts. The magma will make its way through the rocks and ashes. The pressure of the magma will make the plates move in the crust. As the magma pushes all the rocks and ashes through the main vent of the volcano. It will blast all the rocks and ashes and make a massive ash cloud in the air. Lava can cool down while making its way the water.

In Guatemala a volcano had erupted near the capitol of Mexico. 10,000 villagers had to evacuate there homes immediately. Fuego is one of the most worlds active volcano. Villagers were seen escaping the capitol, Guatemala city 31 miles away. All air travels were cancelled after a big ash cloud spread for miles and miles around Guatemala. By Friday morning lava had blasted over four miles away from Fuego's crater.

In the North island of New Zealand, Mt Tongariro had erupted last month. The eruption caused a big ash cloud in the sky. Lava was spewing out of the volcano.

Smoking is one Dangerous thing in the world. They say that smoking can affect your life and you can possibly die from it.  

There is a chance of getting a heart disease and a stroke. You can die faster smoking at the age of 13. 1% of the world die every year from a second hand smoke ¼ of the smokers in the United States tried to quit smoking at least once but smoking was in there lives.

There are people the age of 16 smoking tobacco, that is the restricted age to smoke. children that have parents smoking may let the child smoke when they get older
What I have learned about smoking is to never smoke when I grow up that's why smoking is not our future.

Not So Bad After All

Cross Country was the day that everybody has to run. Getting a sticker with your name and age. I was supporting Te Arawa. When it was the 12 year old boys turn to run I had butterflies in my body thinking I am going to come last.

Clap! Everybody started running off as a Bullet as my legs get muddy. Running on the Pt England Reserve Seeing my shoes covered in mud. It was hard to run because there are deep holes in the grass. Finally making it up to the concrete feeling a little bit exhausted. There were puddles right in front me, running through it made me get wet.

There were more and more puddles until the the course had smaller space in the bush walk. Slipping over forwards and backwards trying to get a grip on the path. having trouble to get up the steep muddy hill. Feeling scared to run down a small spaced muddy path. making the last 50m coming 4th to last.

My legs had mud up to my knees. I was feeling that this day was not so bad after all.

Art Alive is the name of our inquiry for Term Two. We had an Immersion assembly, then we had rotations going around Team 5 classes to learn the skills of famous artists. 
First, we learnt about Daniella Hulme. She has very bright colors and all of her work has woman in it. She paints her work to look like 3D by blending the colours. Next, we learnt about Henri Matisse. He uses the primary colors like red,blue and yellow. His drawing a person with a guitar on looked pretty easy but it took us the middle session. 
Last, but not least, Vincent Van Gogh. He is a very famous artist, one of his paintings sold for $148 Million. He cut his own ear off to give it to his wife and she did not like it, so Vincent had a very sore ear.

What's The Drink For Me?

26/3/12             What’s The Drink For Me?

Has anybody been thirsty before? Do you prefer Coffee,Tea,Soft Drink,Water. I'll prefer to drink soft drink on a hot sunny and sometimes everyday.

I have never ever tasted coffee. I wonder what coffee taste like? I’ve seen millions of people drinking coffee. It must be ok or it might taste yuck. Are you going to taste coffee again?

As I had my first zip of the tea. It tasted like cardboard. Even if I ate the cookie with it it tasted like cardboard cookies so I chucked all the tea outside accept my cookie. Because it was better than coffee. I don’t think I want to taste tea ever again. But would you taste?

Soft Drinks are one of the most favorite drinks ever! for me. but it is unhealthy to drink but is very tasty to drink it. Would you drink nice soft drink all day?

Water is the most healthiest drink that I have ever tasted before. It is healthy for your body too. There are all kinds of different waters. Like Aqua and others kinds. Would you drink it?

On the first day of camp 2012 I was so excited to all the fun stuff. But my friends are not coming. Box fit was our activity. Boxing was pretty cool as I throw punches BAM! Kobe’s hand went all the way back as if I have already won the world Heavy Weight Championship and the crowd was saying my name but I was imagining.

Second Act was Making a tent. They made it look so easy but it was actually hard. It only took nearly one hour to build that tent and seven people helped me trying to get it up. and everybody just keep building and building.

Last but not least it was The Amazing race. First we had to make a slingshot to try and hit the buckets. We keep missing, one was going left and the other one didn’t even make it to the first bucket.

The last act of The Amazing race is to take a photo of respect but with our body’s, but doing one letter each time. finished all the letters now we have to download them to the Imac.

Who is ready for day two on our next trip at camp.
