Tennis, Rain, rain, rain, Gym and Goodbye Grandpa

Rain in one ear out the other. Its been happening for the last couple of days. Which is annoying, but that's New Zealand the only country where there is four seasons in one day. So far today it has been summer in the morning, winter during morning tea and the rest yet to be discovered. But I'd say its spring at the moment. Lets not be weather reporters. But yes the normal plan is like this,  MONDAY:Rain TUESDAY:Mixed WEDNESDAY:Rain again THURSDAY: Sunny surprisingly FRIDAY:Still wet. I like rain to listen to but I also hate it when you get perfectly dry clothes wet.

Gym meh like it normally is spend too much time doing really easy things then have like 15 minutes left to play on equipment. So we only have about an hour to do things at the gym. It isn't always that exciting as its normally about to rain when we leave. Tennis is normal, yet this time I had a partner that was way better at hitting the ball and not thin air: ALEX. So I'm going to thank Angie for that. As she has much better ball control. So Thanks Angie for actually knowing how to play. I played again at Lunch time but Adrienne wasn't the best at knowing when I was hitting the ball to her.

Goodbye Grandpa just some things to say that I won't be here most of next week because my Grandpa died a little while ago so yeah, Funerals and things like that. So yea I probably will write a post next week..... But just saying Bye Grandpa we will miss you. I'm going to include something for him. There is of course next weeks Goal, blow that I'm not going to be here most of the week.

Finally C.A.M.E, Tennis and um Stuff

Right well this week was good! We finally did C.A.M.E which was awesome, and we also started Tennis oh um I know I'm forgetting something, meh I should remember it. Well anyway I'll tell you about C.A.M.E as it was the most awesome thing. Well first of all if you've forgotten what C.A.M.E is then I'll tell you in a moment Coke And Mentos Experiment. Ok well second of all it was soo AWESOME!!!!! My teacher wanted to put as many mentos in as possible so instead of putting the proper 7 in we managed to put 11 in. So instead of going through the geyser tube it fell off so it could of been taller but oh well it was still awesome. I'll get a picture of a geyser tube on this post. 

So Tennis was cool although Alex kept hitting the ball too hard. Alex and I were "rallying" the ball, what we were supposed to do was one of us had a racket and the other hands so I had my hand and Alex the racket. So by the time she was trying to hit the ball on 10th time she (Alex) hit it too hard so up, up, up went the ball and because it was windy it blew to the side almost landed on a roof but rolled a bit and stayed in a bush. So really I didn't get a turn to use the racket. Yet somehow Alex did. It ended up that we then were both using the racket but Alex was still hitting it too hard.

Sooooooooo stuff I'm probably going to have something to talk about once I see my teacher once he stops vanishing. Ok just trying to take it in as I have to write a goal "about anything" Alex of course was nice and said "shes perfect at everything" too nice she is. 
My supposable Goal for next week: Try not to be perfect at everything? Or help people that "are not as good as me" at writing I guess. 
Oh I finally remembered that thing it was gym I'll talk about it next week. Lets also hope my teacher stops vanishing.

Winner of Fifa, C.A.M.E and Stuff

Hallo nice to have you guys back again reading my posts, um mm and other stuff. First of all lets hope this isn't like last time I wrote a post where my computer went and deleted it. During the holidays all people should know who won the FIFA world cup I did! I woke up at six am to go and watch the finale live at the movies. If you didn't know Brazil had gotten thrown out because they lost a 1-7 game to Germany, then in the semi-finals Number 18 in Columbia broke Neymar's back before the game was over. Argentina were facing Germany. End results: Germany 1, Argentina 0.

M.B.D stands for: Mum's Birth Day! Yes it is my mothers birthday on the 25th of July, just doing this as a shout out so happy birthday mum! If your're wondering what C.A.M.E is it stands for Coke And Mentos Experiment. My teacher has just told me that we are not doing the C.A.M.E today we have to do it on Monday. So I'm afraid I don't really have anything to talk about..... So maybe I can write about........... Ummm. Okay I'm just going to see if this is long enough.

Worst thing in my life (FIFA related)

Well this is not actually "Worst thing in my life" but it's still pretty bad. I'm going to tell you about the worst thing that will happen in the history of FIFA, Spain has been eliminated from the FIFA world cup 2014. I know, I know it's so bad. Spain was supposed to win the cup and have a two in a row win but Netherlands and Chile has something else up their short sleeves...... Yet Australia was to my advantage.

Well I had written a really long post of five paragraphs, but my stupid computer went and deleted it all which doesn't help as I now have to write a shorter post and I spent all that time writing the post but its gone now. so now I'm to have to write another post. So well start from the beginning. Netherlands beat Spain 1-5 uhhh Chile beat Spain 2-0. Umm on Monday we went to the museum and this lady called Afena taught us about puanga and matariki, she taught us how to play a game and told us we could break a world record with her on August the 6th. Oh yea I forgot Spain beat Australia  3-0 which was probably the only good thing that happened to them.Wait, yes if your chrome book warns you if the page can be fully deleted, take its advice and copy it first otherwise you'll be pretty distraught like I am. YES it's the Holidays soon, hope you enjoy them.

The P.E shed and an extended bit of FIFA

Every so often I have to be on the P.E shed. It's alright just....... You have to do it for about two weeks, before you can go play with your friends instead of giving them some balls or something to play with. I find it annoying if the person you are on with just stands there and plays with the stuff instead of giving it to the person. Some times I just have to do it because the people that are normally on have a practice of something like rippa rugby or something like that.  I have done it for a full two weeks before I was with an really annoying person, he wouldn't let anyone help when we needed it. You do get sick of it though at times. One really bad thing is it's normally really messy people that were in it sometimes just leave it all messy (like I did, sorry but we were really busy). One more problem I have is that, not all of the balls are pumped so some of them are flat, but lots of people want those type so yeah that's it all I have against it. Wait one more thing there is no natural light so you have to open the door to see. So that my friend is the P.E shed sometime I will show you a photo. But. For now, Good day.

Well this must continue because I have to "Write about something else." So my item of choice is Fifa, most people would probably be doing something about this but meh. Consult it with my teacher. So I'm going to tell you about how Spain has embarrassed me after some much bitter defeat. Well it was like this Spain Vs Netherlands 4 years ago: It's 2010 and it's the finale with Spain against Netherlands. The question on everyone's mind is who will win? Netherlands has come second for quite some time, or the crowds favorite Spain. Well I'm skipping to the end to tell you Spain won 1-0 I was stoked. But what happened on June the 14th in Salvador was terrible. The game went like this Spain 1 point Netherlands 0, that's how it started I am not prepared to tell you about what went on but....... ORANGE I WILL HAVE MY REVENGE!!!!!!!!!!! So the end score was 1 for Spain (terrible!) and *sigh* 5 for ... Netherlands. I wish it was the other way round but I can only dream. So lets see what my teacher thinks of this.    

THE TONGUE

Here is a glog about one of the main things you use to eat items, otherwise known as food. Enjoy!

MY PARTY

On the 17th of May (Saturday) it was my birthday party. I also went to soccer. The night before the 17th I had a sleep over with Alex(Alex goes to my school). The next morning we woke up and got breakfast. Later on we picked up Shiloh (one of my friends) before we went to soccer. Mum then took awhile to find London park. Then we had to wait a hour before the coaches came because their car battery ran out. When the coaches came we started to practice some basic stuff. For most of the first half I was on the sidelines, then about five minuets before half time I went on as a striker. I'm normally defence but Aaron (one of my teammates) was tired so I had to go on. I was doing pretty good for first time striker. But Seth (another team mate) wasn't passing the ball and he was as if he was letting the other team kick it away.

At the end of the game people were confused, but I was pretty sure though that the score was 13-3, we lost in the end. Then we walked back to the car and listened to the band revolution playing. We then went home and had a shower (Shiloh and I, in different showers). Once we were finished people started arriving. By 1 pm every one was there despite Grace Sw (Another one of my friends). We then started with a game where we had to guess someone's name there was another Grace So there and not many people knew her. We then had a treasure hunt and then in teams made pizza's. Whist some people were making pizza's other were making stuff with Du-kit (Du-kit is colorful clay that you make stuff with.) Every one had a turn making pizza and Du-kit. Then Grace Sw showed up (Yes there were two Grace's). While everyone was playing outside we made our pizza's. Once we were done we started eating our pizza's (the one's that were cooked.) After all that eating we had a game of pass the parcel and a Pinata. Once people were done eating most of the parents started turning up so everyone went outside and started playing on all the stuff. In between when people were going and coming Teijhan's (someone that came to my party) mum came and I then got a brand new soccer ball. Once it was 3:30 pm everyone was there except Shiloh and Grace Sw. But that's another story.                   

Mr. Neilson on Wednesday

Every so often when the teacher is sick or busy or something like that we have a day with Mr. Neilson. If you're wondering who Mr. Neilson is he is a re-leaver teacher. That if you're lucky and you're teacher has gotten him in your class you are sooooooo lucky. If you are wondering why he is so great it's because he gives out Kool Fruits. Kool Fruits are these sweets you buy at the supermarket. Anyway he gives them out and they are really delicious. 

His timetable is normally the same it goes like this. Roll, Story, News, Game, Poem, Lucky Dip, Language, Play, Language, Lucky Dip, Story, Game, Tables Bingo, Lunch, Scatterball, Art, Tidy up, Summary. One thing we didn't do was art we were to busy. Scatterball is where you have two teams, one is fielding and the other is thorwing. You have five cones you run around them after you have thrown the ball. To get someone out you catch the ball they threw. The aim is to get as many runs as you can. You score a run when you run around the circle once. I think I've said enough I need to finish this glogster anyway. Bye! 

JAMAICA

This is going to be a short post but I've got a glogster so yeah enjoy! P.S It's about Jamaica.

Holidays: Movies about them

During the holidays I went to see all the movies that were on. Which were The Lego movie, Rio 2, Muppets most wanted 2 and Mr. Peabody and Sherman. I really liked The Lego movie it was as if a kid had wrote it. It looked like it was out of a kids imagination. Rio 2 was al-right but after seeing the Lego movie I knew it was my favourite and no movie would be better than that. Anyway back to Rio 2 this time it was about them going to the Amazon to find more of their species the rare Blue Macaw. They do but they also meet some loggers so they have to stop them. Muppet's (most wanted) was cool especially Constantine and the lemur it was cool. It was sad that Kermit went to jail instead of Constantine. Mr. Peabody and Sherman was about time travelling and some of the greatest pieces of history. So those were some very short reviews for those movies. I hope when you see them you would of liked them as much as me.

Rayz Road show

Hopefully this won't be too long I hope........ Just before I wrote a "paragraph" (I'm doing those because it was more like a story.) Anyway I was going to talk about Rayz Road show. The Rayz Road show was a puppet sort of show, it also was about noises and funny stuff. A bit like a comedian for kids I guess you could call it. Well I might as well get on with it. 

It was, of course, a Wednesday morning and everyone was rushing around to pay the $3 to get in. Otherwise as we had been warned many times that no pay no go. Once the bell had rang and people were at their classes. It was announced that it was time to go to the show in the hall. All the classes lined up and filed in to the hall. As we were sitting down there was a monkey poking his head up from behind the curtain. When the show started this weird puppet thing came out and welcomed us. Ray then came out and told us the rules, ra-da-ra-da-rada. I think you would get it, he then said he would need a helper he chose someone and did the trick I forgot what it was. 

Then some puppets came out one of the first one was his supposable grandfather, I had a feeling it wasn't though. He did some noises and then put him away. Then another puppet came out this one was called Jeremy. Most of the time all Jeremy said was "Cool man cool"  it didn't really make sense, I went with it anyway. There was then going to be another trick and then it would be over. The person on my right got to go up and do it. The trick I didn't get but what happened was they got another person (the person was my teacher Mr. Rivers) to do it on. Ray put some water in a tin and used the instruction to stop the water. Amazingly the water did not go on his head. We then had some questions and left. The end result was great. So that is how Rayz Road show goes. FIN

This week, How do I put it? Maybe I should tell you.

Hmm well at least this week every thing didn't fell like it was a blur. On Monday we...... Uh, sorry I forgot again. Well I'll start with the day I remember most, so Thursday it is! Yesterday (Thursday, well for me it was!) so yesterday I was the student councillor. There is a thing at our school were someone from you're class can go to the staffroom and you can help decide to make school a bit different if you sort-a get what I mean. It was cool to go in the staffroom and sit with Mrs O'Conner and drink juice the real experience is pretty plain boring though. My legs got pins and needles from sitting down to long. As we were on a topic of will we have huffy's again sometime a little Junior said "What if the Huffy's crash into the big monster truck?" all the Seniors giggled and Mrs O'Conner said " Conner have you ever seen a monster truck drive in through those gates?" Then Conner said "Oh Yeah....." most people then cracked up. This is already quite a long post so I might stop it there.

Thursdays with Mrs Conley

Every second Thursday Room 4 have Mrs Conley in the classroom. When a new teacher starts that class have a substitute teacher in every second week or once every so often. So our teacher Mr. Rivers it's sort of like watch and learn for the teacher. Normally we do a poem with Mrs Conley and some maths. Each Thursday we have Ka Pahaka so that's in the agenda. Swimming because Thursday is our swimming day. I will put one of the poems I have done with her in this. 

   Whatif?
 Last night I lay thinking there,  
Some whatif's crawled inside my ear
and pranced and partied all night long
and  sang their same whatif song:
Whatif.......... my head explodes while I sleep?
Whatif the elephants I'm counting start to leap?
Whatif I suddenly got hit by a brick?        
Whatif my computer was on the blink?
Whatif pigs start to fly?
Whatif I could fly to the sky?
Whatif my cat was sick on a mat?
Whatif I found a dead rat?
Whatif the wind blew while I was making a face?
Whatif if it was stuck like that and put on a place?
Whatif I found a rotten egg?
Whatif it was in my bed?

Weekly Refection week 4

This week many things happened like.... On Monday I had Peer mediation (so boring) it's mostly walking around the school with a light green jacket on and carrying a clipboard. Later on that afternoon was Senior Assembly which means sitting up straight, with a sore back while teachers tell you boring stuff. Sometimes it's helpful, other times they make you fall asleep. But now you can go swimming twice a day if you want.


Tuesday: This day I drew my shoes underneath the trees. I went swimming twice. Not much happened this day so I'm only going to write a little bit. If there was much that happened I can't remember. Wednesday I  still can't remember anything from this day. I got something out from the P.E shed. I wrote something on Google Docs I forgot what. I don't know why but I can't remember much from this week. Thursday little bit more is in my mind (not much). I made a on line bar graph. I drew a lady bug, a leave, a dandelion and a tiny fly for observational drawing. After school at 5:30 pm was the community school picnic. Friday not right now but soon is the Water Fight. My mind is blank so I'm going to wrap it up now. I was going to include one of my bar graphs but there was an network error so I couldn't get it to work.
