BM's holiday

We went on a skiing trip
Me, Mum, Aunty and Holly
The weather was horrid
We weren’t very jolly.

We got a new puppy
Bella is a spoodle
She has beautiful long eyelashes
And acts like a little noodle.

We went to the movies in Botany
We watched Shrek Forever After
With Rumple Stiltskin, Fiona and Shrek
It was happily ever after.

I went to Brooklyn’s birthday
We played lots of fun games
Me, Anna, Emma, Kelly, T and Brooklyn
Our fun nearly ended up in flames.

NS's Holiday Rhymes

My Holiday Rhymes
On Wednesday I went to Rainbows End`
The Invader was my favourite ride
It twirled and whirled
And I felt enormous pride!


I went to the movies
To watch Toy Story 3
Andy went to college
And the toys were set free!

I went to MOTAT
The Museum of Transport and Technology
I had so much fun
It was good psychology!

Gareth came over
To sleep the night
We watched scary movies
He got a great fright!

Zs's holiday verse

I went to a sleepover at Mitchell’s
And we had fun and games
It was very exciting
And we called each other names
my Holiday

The movie we saw was Karate Kid
It was cool and groovy!
Why didn’t we see it earlier
It was such an exciting movie

We arrived at MOTAT
And played in the Tactile Dome
With gooey corn flour and water
And then it was time to go home

We visited Tauranga
And for a sail at sea
Because it was blowing 50 knots
We went for a cup of tea

At the end of our first term of 2010 we looked at the pluses and minuses for the term...luckily we had more pluses than minuses but camp certainly seemed a BIG PLUS.
While trying to upload these wordles onto our blogsite we had a fire alarm to contend with so this posting has had to sit for the holidays!

Room18 `s TAONGA
(Treasures)
We interviewed a couple of people in our class. We asked if their house was on fire, what Would They Save?
Out of the class we chose 4 people`s treasures. Most people chose their Pets like Guinnea Pigs to Dogs to Rabbits and to Cats. They were all very cute and we enjoyed our writing because lots of them came to visit our class. We hope you enjoy our writing.

A.H I would save my puppies’ because they are part of my family and because they're only babies’ so if they were left in the disaster they would have a short life.
B.V.U decided to save his dog’s collar because his Dalmatian was the closest thing to him. Sadly she died on April 26th 2oo9. B.V.U’s dog had been with him since he was born.
D.H would save his pigs because they are family D.H is very talkative HA!

N.S would save his remote control car because he’s had it for 2 years. He would hate to lose it.

Thanks for reading.

Shelly Park Cricket Game


Shelly Park and Cockle Bay face to face on the cricket field. We flipped a coin to see who bats first. Mr Rolfe flips the coin Craig picks heads, But It Was Elephants Bottom!!! So Cockle Bay picks got to pick out of Bating or Fielding. They chose to field. First up on our side to bat is Craig (Granny) and Richard (Greeny). Craig hits one run. Then Richard did a big swing but no ding and then BANG! The right bail was hit, he’s out! 10 Minutes later. Dane is up and he’s ready and confer dint he is going to hit a 4 or a 6.Then SMACK! Dane hits a 4!!!Campbell Mr Rolfe said your bating. Campbell hit the ball and made two runs. A new bowler is up and Campbell is the first one to face him. He bowls it’s a little off target and then OWW!!!! The hard ball hits my knees! Mr Rolfe called Campbell over and said game over, Shelly Park WON!!!!!

Ginger Beer
Sssss! That’s the sound of the bottle lid opening for the fizzy, sugary ginger beer. This has been made by BM and GL. The ingredients we used were water, sugar, lemons and two bottles to put it in. We first made a ginger bug, we fed it ginger and sugar every day, then we mixed lemon juice and water then heated it up. It turns out to be ready for an explosion rather quickly because of the gas that was building up inside the ginger beer bottle. It was suppose to stay in the bottle for a week but we’re going to have to drink it in two days because it might have exploded if we left it. It tasted very sugary and smelt very gassy.

Harry Potter and the philosopers stone


Once on a very stormy night Lord Voldemort set out on his way to KILL!!! Harry Potter and his family. The Bad news is that his parents got killed. The Good news is that he stayed alive. But Voldemort gave Harry the lightning scar on his fore head. After his family died he had to live with his aunt, uncle and his cousin who hate Harry and he hates them. On Harry`s 11th bithday Hagrid (the game keeper of Hogwarts) told him that he was a wizard so Hagrid took him to go buy his stuff for wizardry school. Everyone at Hogwarts was whispering and asking if that was Harry Potter except Draco Malfoy who hates Harry. When he was getting taught how to fly on a broomstick, Harry didn`t get lessons he just flew up and thats how he got in the Gryfindor Quidich team with the Nimbus Two Thousand!

I think you should read this book because it is very exciting and magical.






Rebel Spy Book review.
Once in outer space in the world of Delbor
There was a spy who was called Valeeta. She was a bad spy who hid in the science building of the city of Glorid.
You have to pick the path to capture Valeeta with Callisto by your side. With a whole book of impossible puzzles and mind blowing science guaranted to be a good read.
I thought it was the best book in the world because it was fascinating and fantastically awesome.

come play basketball


Come play basketball
This year we will hopefully have two school teams. Last year we had three teams so if you’re interested and are a Pod 4 person come to the trials. We will be doing passing and shooting. If you don’t know how to shoot or pass Mr v.U will teach you. After the trials and the teams have been decided we practice on Fridays after school and play against other schools. The games are very breathtaking and hard. See you at the trials by B.v.U

A Great But Not So Great Start

The start of school has not been as great as I would want it to. I have a really cool teacher and I love doing fun things with my class and my friends...but I have an ear infection and a cold. I love going swimming, but it’s sad because I’m not allowed to dive and swim laps, well... I don’t have enough energy to do them. I hope I get better soon because I’m having lots and lots of fun.

Taking your pencil for a walk.

We did our art in an interesting way. Close your eyes. With one finger trace around your eye...over your eyebrow...once again around your eye....over your eyebrow...to the top of your nose ...down your nose...around your nostril and your other nostril...go down to the top of your lip...go down to your jaw...slide up to your ear...go across the top of your forhead...to your other ear..and down to your chin! Do you know what you just did??? Anyone?No?Anyone? OK You just made a potrait of yourself in an interesting way. For the last touch colour in with bright pastels and adding hair is optional. Guess what... the faces don't look like us! You just took your pencil for a walk!

Our Ketes!












“Arrgggg... It’s so hard” we said well we were trying to get the wool through the needle. We were making awesome ketes. There were lots of different colours to choose from. We chose orange and brown... awesome colours! We sewed shells and paua on, and then we made patterns out of the wool. It was great fun. It was very loud when we were drilling holes in the shells, but it was worth it because when we finished our ketes they looked magnificent. Mrs Hensley gun stapled them onto a blue wall and that just made them look better. A kete is a woven flax bag that the Maori used. They put treasures in the bag.

Our blind art


2 weeks ago we did blind art.It was very interesting to see how the picture turned out.Some of us had to do it more than two times to get it right.The first time we opened our eyes everyone started laughing because they looked so funny.Some of them had their eyes coming out of their heads.Once they were publish with pastel we had to draft some words about our blind art.
