On Wednesday we made a our theme park with Mrs May. We really enjoyed making the theme park. We had to create a name for our theme park and I named my theme park awesome land. Inside we had to draw who the manager was, how much the food and drinks were, the prices to get in, how much the ride costs, and a map of your park. I really liked creating my own theme park, it was awesome.

For kiwi sport this term we had netball. In our first session we learned how to do a chest pass. We also learnt how to shoot the ball into the hoop. You have to bend your knees and push up to shoot. You also have to pass to your team mate that is not blocked by another player on the other team. Merrin, our teacher, also taught us that if someone on the other team has the ball you have to try and block that person from passing the ball. In the final session we played a real game. We were split into two teams white and black. I was one of the subs that had to wait for Merrin to say that the people that were playing had to swap. I was in the white team. At the end of the match Merrin got out some red bibs out and gave it to the subs then she said "white team off and red team on". After a hard match I think that the red team and the white team had a tie. It was really fun playing netball.

Yesterday room seven went to the museum with room 8 and 5. First we went into a room and sat on a mat. One of the museum people told us a bit about migration and when they left there country they brought their culture over here. The museum people let us feel some tapa. The tapa was very interesting to feel and touch because the a museum person told us that it took a long time to make. After that the museum people let us make our own tapas. We didn't have much time to make the tapas because the bus was late to school. All we had to do was put our paper over a bit of patterned wood and rub with a crayon. When we ran out of time we went down the steps to a big map. For the next activity different museum people asked us some questions. The questions were a bit hard and I couldn't remember all of them. Next the museum people gave us two blocks of wood and a bit of string. The trick was that you had to get the string through both bits of wood. The next bit was to drill a hole through a bit of wood. It was hard to keep the drill straight so it didn't come off the bit of wood. Then we got split into two groups so we can do the challenge. The challenge was to keep the drill on for as long as you could. I was in group two. In the first round Sebastian beat Latham and in the second round Phoenix beat Evelyn. Sadly my group lost 0-2. After that we all of the classes went outside to eat our lunch. After lunch my class split up into our groups. I went with my Dad, Latham, Mere and Ofa from room 8. We walked around for a bit but Mere and Ofa wanted to go to the volcano. In the volcano place there was a big fake volcano. We walked around for a bit but Latham wanted to go to the ancient worlds so that we can see the mummy that was there. My favorite place was the armory because it had rifles, pistols, swords, and knifes. Soon we had to go back to school so we went to the entrance to wait for the other groups. When everybody was back at the entrance we went on the bus to go back to school. I thought this trip was going to be boring but it was really cool.

This is my blog about migration. Migration is when people from a country come to a different country. Most people were pushed out of there country's because of war, crime, and poor living conditions. If I would migrate I would go to I would go to Australia because I have heard that they have cool and fun things in the gold coast.

Scaring my Dad
On Saturday in my small, green and white house my brothers and I decided to scare my Dad. Our mum was out shopping so we couldn't scare her. We decided to scare our dad when he was sitting on the chair in the living room. We crept down the stairs and with each step the stairs creaked like they were groaning under our weight. I almost got snapped by my dad when I nearly slipped on a toy car, but I just managed to not stand on it. The door slowly opened and my brothers and I screamed BOO! My Dad was so scared that he fell of his chair and we fell over laughing. Later my Dad hid behind us and screamed “Got Ya”! After we got scared by my Dad he said “because you scared me and I scared you we are now even so no more scaring ok”. So we promised not to scare my Dad anymore, but next time I think that I will scare my mum instead of my Dad.

Today Duffy theater came to our school. Three people came from the theater to tell us to read, read and read. The people that came from the theater were called Duffy, Rosie and Bingo. Rosie and Duffy were talking about reading books when Duffy said lets sing the Duffy song. After the Duffy song Duffy said my uncle Bingo is coming today. Rosie wanted to give Bingo a book because she was a big fan of Bingo, Bingo is a famous rugby player. When Bingo came to Duffy, Rosie gave him her present. When Rosie said the present was a book Bingo said that he wasn't into books. Duffy thought that his uncle meant that he couldn't read so Duffy said that he will teach his uncle how to read. When Duffy tried to teach his uncle to read his uncle said that he can already read, "how do you think I can read all of the News papers and magazines about me" he said. Then Bingo went to Sydney to play the finals, but on the plane he had to wait four and a half hours he said "what am I going to do in four and a half hours"? So Bingo opened the Rosie's present to him and he read the book that was all about ballerinas. When Bingo played rugby in the finals he danced like a ballerina. Back at his home Duffy said "hey Rosie Bingo read your book because he has knows lots of ballerina moves". Bingo's rugby team won the match because of Bingo and his ballerina moves.
