My Holidays
In the holidays some friends from Auckland came over for five days. Their names were Olivia, Kendall Jane, George (Kendalls boyfriend), Neo (the dog), Darrell and Karen.

Whilst they were here we went to the Go-Karting place next to paintball 007. The man there would put water on the track so that we could do skids around the middle of the track. The track had features like there were tyres round the track.

On Tuesday I went to a Football Program at Woodford House. We were in the gym mostly because it was raining and we couldn’t play outside, but the good thing was that we were outside for one day. On the last day there we had a Futsal Tournament, the teams were Honduras (my team), Ghana, Germany and thats all the teams I can remember.

Me and my Dad went to the movies on Saturday, we went to watch How To Train Your Dragon 2, I thought it was an AMAZING movie. On Friday night Matthew and my Dad went to see Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes.

In the weekend we got five movies for $5 from Video Ezy in Havelock. We got Men In Black 3, Fantastic Four, Mr Bean and my brothers movies were Semi-Pro, Rush Hour 3, Rush Hour 2, Four Brothers And Star Wars Family Guy

A moment in time...

Moment In Time At Night

I heard my bedroom door slam shut.

I heard my Mum and Dads foot steps going down the hallway….

I saw my bedroom light go out.

I saw my feet wriggle around in the bottom of my bed.

I felt the duvet get blown around in the air.

I felt my head sink into my pillow.

I wondered if there was someone else in my room.

I wondered if I would fall off the edge of my bed.

Scratch

In class I have been learning about the points of the compass and directions.

This week I learnt about a programme called Scratch which uses directions to create a little computer program.

My job was to use Scratch to create something that could be shared with the rest of the class. What my Scratch was about was all down to me and my imagination! I had to be creative!

When I grow up...

 As part of our topic I have been thinking about myself and what makes me special. This has led to me thinking about what I would like to be when I grow up.


I made a ToonDoo about it.

Swimming Sports

Swimming Sports is where the Year 4s, 5s and 6s at Havelock North Primary take part in swimming races in their houses. We then had to create a voki for homework about one of the races.


Our voki needed to tell the class about our favourite race at swimming sports and why we liked that one the best. We had to remember to hook our listener in and give the audience lots of interesting information.
