Going To Sylis' Birthday

Sleeping Over at Sylis house for his birthday

On Saturday the 19th I went over to my friend Sylis’ house because it was his birthday and I had a sleepover at his house. When I got to Sylis’ house we had a game of soccer. The game was very close but in the end I won 13-14. Sylis was very good and he was a big challenge. After the game the sky started to go dark so we went inside and watched TV until dinner was ready. Dinner was curry with rice, meat and vegetables. Dinner was very hot but was really yummy. After dinner when Sylis’ little brother and sister were asleep we watched some movies in his room. The movie that we watched was called Percy Jackson and the lightning thief. Percy Jackson and the lightning thief was about a boy called Percy Jackson. Percy is the son of the sea god and his uncle the god of the air, his uncle thinks that Percy stole the lightning bolt. His uncle Zeus is very angry because his lightning bolt is very powerful. Percy has to get the lightning bolt quickly or the gods will have war with each other. After watching a movie we went into the lounge and Sylis’ got his colouring in pencils and paper. We both had a competition and when we both finished drawing we went to Sylis’ mum and dad so they can pick the winner. In the end Sylis’ mum said it was a tie and she bought us a sundae each from McDonalds. After eating the sundae we watching a rugby game. It was Warriors vs Broncos. The thing that Sylis and I didn't understand was that the Warriors always get lots of tries in the first half but in the second half they don’t get much tries. In the end the Broncos won and Sylis’ and I went to bed angry because the Warriors didn't win. The next day when Sylis’ family were all at his house we had pizza, chips and fizzy drink. When we got our food we were told to go outside to eat so we didn’t make a mess. Sylis’ and I decided to play a game of soccer while we were eating our pizza. As we played Sylis knocked my pizza out of my hand and then he laughed like it was a big joke. Fifteen minutes later Sylis’ mum told us it was time to cut the cake. When I saw the cake it looked delicious because it had white chocolate and M and Ms in it. When everyone said happy birthday and gave Sylis his presents, Sylis’ Auntie cut the cake into equal pieces. The cake was delicious and very yummy. The cake was so nice that I wanted more but there was only enough for one piece each. When Sylis’ family all left I watched Sylis play on his phone. At three o’clock I went home feeling very happy and tired.

My Art Reflection


This term in art room seven did colour mixing. We were focusing to do our art the way Ton Schulten does his.  We had to pick a landscape photo and copy it onto our piece of paper. Next we copied the landscape photo from the piece of paper and we put it on another piece of paper. On the piece of paper we also drew lines in red so if you are painting in the blue every square is a different kind of blue. The landscape that I chose is the beach. It was very hard and we had to make our own colours. The only colours that we used is blue, green, red, yellow, black and white. It took us a long time but in the end I was very proud of myself.     

Term 2 Reflection

This term room 7 have learnt a lot of interesting things. Like going to the Botanical gardens was really cool and fun. For the past nine weeks we have been doing lots of hard work. My favorite activities are Maths, Writing and Topic.

In Maths we have been using math games to help us learn. We use E-ako maths, Xtra maths, study ladder and maths buddy. Maths buddy helped me learn about decimals, E-ako maths helped me with my fractions and XtraMaths helped me with my addition, subtraction and Multiplication.   

For writing we have learnt how to elaborate (add detail), make simple sentences, take risks with our words and make a information report. We use the riskometer to see how many risks we are taking. 

In topic we have learnt that if you destroy a animals habitat the animal might die. We have also learnt that if a animal is endangered the animal  is close to extinction. Extinction means that there is no more of that animal. We have learnt that classification is a group of animals. We split our class into different groups and we each had to research about our animal that we got. The animal that my group and I got was fish. We learnt heaps of things about fish and we now know that fish are cold blooded.

My favorite thing in maths is Xtra math because it is fun to do and I learn lots of things. My favorite thing in writing is making a information report because they are interesting and you learn about animals. My favorite thing in topic is doing a classification about a animal because you can find out things that you did not know before.   

I think that this term has gone really fast and it has been a really awesome term.

The Interactive Drum Show

Wednesday whole school went to the hall for the drum show. There were drums all around the hall and we had enough for one each. There were so many drums that even the teachers got to have a drum. There were two people who were going to teach us how to play the drums there names were Johnny and Lucie. Once everybody sat down Johnny showed us how to play the drum. He told us to say yes I like it very very much and every time you say 'yes I' you have to bang the drum with both hands together. When you say 'like it' you have to bang the drum with one hand and when you say 'very very much' you have to use both hands and bang the drum as fast as you can.
