One Wednesday morning, room 17 went bug hunting. We went to a creek at the back of the school and found lots of little critters. Aidan gave me heaps of snails to look after, but they kept on escaping. One poor snail fell off onto the ground!

At the end of term 3, I thought I had two weeks of fun, but I wasted it. I stayed home doing nothing but feeling so miserable! My holiday sucked.
One of my worse day were where my big brother sold my games and left me there for dead. That's not all, my mother did nothing about it. She just said don't worry! It felt like I was ripped apart.
It was even worse the next day, I wasn't allowed to watch TV when school starts.This is so NOT FAIR!!
Well anyways, thank goodness!! that nightmare is over, I can go back to school with my friends once......... again.

Here at school we are writing about kiwis. I chose the Good Night Kiwi because it is one of my favorite programs, and it is who I am. Some of us have been deciding what kind of kiwi, we are going to draw. The Good Night Kiwi is the best TV show on air, I think Kiwis are cool!

We have been learning about pirates who went plundering in ancient times.These pirates were from Europe and were poor, miserable, and unemployed. They became pirates to start PLUNDERING (stealing) goods, BLOOD DIAMONDS, TOBACCO, and SLAVERY.
It was hard work plundering merchant ships(ships that have goods, or trading and selling) because their GOLD MUST be REALLY HEAVY to carry that much gold. I forgot that smaller ships are the fastest! I recon that is pretty sad that they touchier slaves, witch are from Africa?!

This Picture here is Nicholas Young. He was a sailor on Captain Cooks Ship for a look out voyage. Nicholas Young was a surgeons boy and eleven years old when he left his family! On Captain Cooks ship he is a navigator.
Navigating is something you could use to set sail on sea. You must make sure, that you are going the right direction.

Polynesian people touched down on Aotearoa 1000 years ago. Individual people came by canoe, which Maori people used well sailing on the verge of death. Some of the boats had single hulls, without riggers or double hulls. There was plunks slashed together, which were 15 to 25 meters long.
Trained navigators steered under a direct trail of stars by night and sea swells by day. Not many of them managed to cross the dangerous seas of Aotearoa.

One Tree Hill was made by volcanic lava, that was hitting the hot spot. It was making a cone, witch will allow it to cool down and become a erupting volcano .
Lava has created a volcanic eruption, called One Tree Hill, a.k.a. Maungakiekie. It was erupting to 20,000 or 30,000,years, it is also a famous Auckland landmark.
The spectacular view at the top tells you, the dead men at war worked hard. Also you can look at some of the volcanoes in the area of New Zealand.
As you were climbing to the top of the hill, you can look down and see the three craters, that shows you how the side is blown up. The scoria rocks were great for ancient use, and the mouth of the lava is shaped like an horse shoe. Whats more the person who made volcanoes was a man called volcan, and now his name is still remembered for all the maori ancestors.

Being at the Fifa World Cup would be amazing , it is like the finals. When our team had the ball the crowd went wild with rage, in a good way though. Cars went racing to the stadium.
People were not happy to miss out. A terrible tragedy had happened all the tickets were sold out. It was as if it was the end of the world. Sadly people went back home.
New Zealand and Italy face to face, my future is in their hands. One match will change millions of peoples lives, see history be made, that's what I say.
Then Boom! Italy has the ball he's going, he's going.........
MISS, New Zealand has it. Dodging player by player, seems to becoming a good start.
Finely, at last, he's running, he's running ............
GOAL!! New Zealand cheering loud and proud. But it is not over there is only a couple of minutes left Italy at last has the ball, he seems to be focused on it then ...........
GOAL! I don't know how he doe's it, what a great save for Italy.

Inside planet earth is hot liquid rock with piousness gasses. magma inside the vent is expanding, witch means it is not going to burst out hard.
Mount Vesuvius was erupting! A foundation of fire shot upwards and huge black cloud rose up into the sky. The ground shook with the force of the explosion. People staggered, clinging to one another.

Into the umu, goes large plump tuna, that was sent from niue, by plane. The tuna is cut up into big chunks , then wrapped in coconut leaves. Then it is dumped on top of the umu, because it doesn't need so much time to cook.

Justin Bieber, is one of New Zealand best pop musicians in the world. Just as a kid, he already sold his most wanted songs RIGHT NOW!!! As he's been to New Zealand, there was a concert.
When he came, nearly half of the town went crazy about him, security's and cops were leading the fans away. Fans lost their minds, moms were dying to meet him, and dads wanted to be him. Many albums were out on sale

Here is me and a picture of my family portrait that I drew by hand. If you look very closely, you can see a dolphin which is my mother, and also our future because it isn't much detailed. On the ground is me, my two brothers, and my baby sister. Also I drew my Dad in the purple sky, watching over us. What's more, I drew birds flying in the sky. The whole portrait means that I like the beach, because on the ground is the sea, my mother is the dolphin who is swimming, and I drew some birds in the sky to make it more detailed.

Here is one of my volcano art at school, I have been working on. First we painted the background to make it blend the colors in. Then I got some new instructions to make my work more detailed.
Next we add the volcano, draw some smoke, and a little bit of steaming hot lava erupting out of volcano's mouth. After that we finally smuged the pastals with our hands to make it more interesting. It didn't end up good but I tried my best.

Here is one of my best friends, Joe. We were playing a game called octopus down at Tamaki College.
The aim of the game was that we have to get to the other side before the people that are in gets us out. When we are in or get tagged we sit on our bottoms and skittle with our hands. Also we use our octopus legs to get them out and that is me on the left.
