My Maths Goal for This Week

This week, I would like to know my six times tables. So far it is going well. By ways to achieve this goal, you can bounce a ball an practice your goal in time with the rhythm. You can also make flash cards practice with a buddy. These are how I got better at my maths. Next week I am planning on getting my seven times.

Our Fun School Picnic

“YES!”, I shouted as I got the news that our school picnic was on. Over 600 kids(including me) got to the reserve, all talking to each other about what they had planned for the day. I personally thought it was crazy, but cool, that our principal organized this!

When my friends and I went to the beach, I was tempted to play in the water. I finally remembered, we were allowed to paddle(paddling is when you put your feet in the water, but it is only allowed to be up to knee height). While paddling, I spotted the big rocks of clay.

Running to the chunks of clay, I slipped and cut my foot. Struggling to get up with my bloody foot, I broke a piece clay off the rock and skipped on to the water. As the clay softened, I molded it into a circle and stuck shells into them.

This years picnic was really fun because I got to spend more time with my friends, plus I kinda haven’t been to a beach in a while!

Symbols That Represent ME!!

This photo was a project in Extension. This project was based on our hobbies. We had to draw four symbols or pictures that we thought represent us. The cross, music notes, brain and Samoan patterns are things that people more about me.

My Education

The reason I would like to have a good education is because my family and I believe that I can achieve new levels and discover new talents. Especially my mother, Ita. A very good education and school matters top my mother and I. That means, if I get into a good school, will lead me to a good job, then I'll be successful. School is very IMPORTANT!

Cher Lloyd

One of the greatest pop princesses of ALL TIME is Cher Lloyd! She is one my most loved artists and I admire her hard hitting beats and seductive tunes!

Born on 28 of July, 1993, Cher was born and raised in Worcestershire, United Kingdom. She now lives in London with her fiancee, Craig Monk. Being the oldest sibling, Josh, her younger brother, Rosie and Sophie, the younger sisters. Her first single was Swagger Jagger, came out in June 2011.

She inspires me because she's is still VERY young and has became one of the best of the best in the music industry.(For me!)I hope that I become just like her!

Monday Mornings

I am learning to write an introduction that hooks my audience in. Here are 3 versions. Which Monday Morning introduction do you like best and why.

Oh great! It’s Monday morning, the worst part of the week. I struggled to get up out of bed, still not fully awake.

 Thank goodness it’s not Monday today. Oh wait, it is! Getting out of bed, I raced my brother to be the first one in the bathroom.

 I finally know why I’m always tired in the morning, especially on Monday. It’s because kids my age should get at least 9 HOURS of sleep! Looks like I need to stop watching late movies at night.

I like watching TV
But I don’t like the documentary channels

I like my bedroom
But I don’t like cleaning it up

I like my net-book
But I don’t like returning it at the end of the term

I like sweets
But I don’t like Licorice all-sorts

I like the going to the doctors
But I don’t like drinking the medicine

I like art
But I don’t like the stickiness from PVA glue

I like swimming at the beach
But I don’t like being hit by big waves

I like playing the violin
But I don’t like getting the notes wrong when I perform

My Holiday Highlight

Te Manukanuka o Hoturoa Marae is where my Family Reunion was held. This is a Reunion that happens every three years.

As I woke up, I just realised that I slept in a GIGANTIC marae! As I struggled to get up, I heard the beat of our exercise song. It was exercise time. When our workout was done, I went straight to my bed AGAIN.

It was then breakfast time. Dragging myself into the hall/kitchen, I could just smell the mouth-watering energizers that were in store for me! Yogurt, bacon, baked tomato's.....

I think that our reunion was a BLAST! My favorite part about it was spending time with my family and getting to know them better. I can't wait till our next reunion!!

An AMAZING New Class, and an AMAZING New Teacher!

Yeah!! It's now a new year and I'm also now in a new class, with a wonderful new teacher. The class that I'm now in is Room 17. And my teacher is Ms Garden. Unfortunately, this is my last year in primary too, that means I'm a year six now!
