Final Flag vote

Room 7's overall Flag vote:Room 7 likes the flag just the way it is. 8 people in room 7 do not like the flag. But 15 of us like the flag so we win. We like the normal flag because it has been around since 1902 and the army has waved in many wars. We vote for the normal flag!!.

Class Vote On Favourite New Zealand Flag

The most favorite flag was the Silver fern with the white red and blue. The least wanted flag was the red peak flag. I think the flag with the silver fern with red white and blue won because... It looked the same as the normal flag

My Edited Piece of Writing

On Saturday I was at my Papa's, Aunt’s, and Uncle’s house getting ready for Halloween. When I saw my Papa he was dressed up in a spooky Zombie he looked so scary. I was dressed up as a purple bat. I was ready for Halloween. Me and my Papa were going around the houses asking for lollies.

Once we went to a different house it was very black and very spooky. My Papa got scared so I told him don’t worry It's just a house full of decorations. There were spiderwebs, bats, and  witch decorations. I knocked on the door and out came a ghost man. The man gave us sweets “trick or treat” I said to them.

Next I went down the road to another house that wasn't as spooky as the last. It only had black spiders and a witch’s broom. I knocked on the door and out came a black witch. She gave us some Chocolates  and Candies.

When we stopped at Kings Road we saw  my friend Zara and her Dad Babu. They were going trick or treating for treats. Me and my Papa were walking with Zara as we asked if  we could  come with them to get treats they said “yes”.

We stopped at the cafe and we had a hot chocolate and a Strawberry Cupcakes. Then we went back down to Coates Crescent  to go to the  other houses for trick or treating.   
We saw another house that was scary. I said “trick or treat” and out came a spider. The man gave us some  lollies and Chocolates . It was fun in Halloween. “Finally time to go home” I said to myself. I said bye to my friend Zara and we both went home to eat all of our goodies.   

On Saturday I was at my Papa's, and Aunts, and Uncles, house getting ready for halloween. When I saw my papa was dressed  up in a spooky zombie I was dressed up as a purple bat.  I was ready for halloween. Me and my Papa were going around the houses asking for lollies .
Once I went to a house that was very black and very spooky my Papa got scared I told him don’t worry It's just a house  full of dickarayshions . There  Were  spiderwebs and bats and witch dickarayshions I knocked on the door and out came a ghost a man and a lady gave us sweets yummy happy trical treat I said to them next I went down to another house that wasn't spooky as it was

Wedges Experiment

Wedges Experiment

To find out which teeth are used for biting and chewing foods.Why do we use certain teeth for biting and chewing.

I think my front teeth will be used to bite the bread. I think you use your back teeth to eat the the banana.

The teeth I used to dig into the orange was my incisors and then to chew was my molers.
I used my incisors and my canines to bite a hole in the bread and use your molars to chew on the bread.

Chopstick Challenge photo story

Chopstick Challenge Reacount

Chopstick Challenge

“Yessss!!!!!” As me and Jacob yell while Caesar picks up the wine gum and puts it into the bowl. Today we did a challenge. The Challenge was called the Chopstick Challenge. The Challenge rules were The was a line that was 1 meter and there were two bowls. The 2 bowls were separated between that one meter. Then we put wine gums in one of the bowls. Next we had the first round starting with Caesar. Caesar rushes to the bowl and picks up his first wine gum and put it into the bow. The next person was me so I got the chopsticks and I ran to the bowl on the other side … and I put into the bowl. Then it was Jacob's turn so he got the chopstick and done it well and there was our third wine gum. We kept on rotating like that until the time was up. We had lots of fun this was the best challenge ever.  

We had round to but with harder sweets to carry those sweets were pebbles. The chopsticks couldn’t pick the up because they were to slippery for the chopsticks. The wine gums were Thicker than the pebbles so they were easy to carry. The pebbles really put up a good game. Some people were really good with chopsticks so they know how to pick up the pebbles and put them in the other bowl. The easiest sweet to pick up was obviously the wine gums because they were not slippery.

There were a lot of sweets when we had to do the pebbles I knew they were hard to pick up but I tried. I took too long and the time ran out because I did not know how to pick up the pebbles. MY friend Joseph and Alex were doing amazing until we got in their way. We only had one pebble at the time and that from Caesar. Our team was really struggling with the pebbles. We were the team with the lowest points so far. We tried our best and we got only one point.

Duffy show Recount

“Hahahahahaha” as I burst into laughter while watching the duffy show roleplay. It was funny there was a girl that hates books. Then she meets Duffy and then Duffy was asking questions as in what do you like she answered “television”. The in one question she answered Harry Potter so they got a Harry Potter book and she read it. Then she became a bookworm and made her finish her homework in no time.

And then in the end we all got to ask questions I wasn’t picked not once. I had a blast watching that roleplay. I was has as happy as a rocket shooting off into space when show took place.The Duffy show was the best because I have never laughed like that in ages. I liked the show the books they read became reality.

I was having the time of my life when I experienced this show. This show was the best show yet well the best duffy show I saw in ages. The results of this was a 9 out of 10. This show was better than the one at my old school. The way they performed was amazing.

My favorite character in this show was Duffy,mrs mundy,Terry the gardening fairy and Siena. The show really inspired me I thought it was going to be boring. My favorite part of the show was when Mrs mundy raps that was so cool. They did a great job at making the kids laugh. They gave us some tips on how to get changed really fast 1 just throw your clothes of or 2 distract the kids if one person takes to long to get changed.

I just want to thank the people who came up with this idea It really made me and all the other kids put a smile on their face. And plus this experience was amazing. The kids really enjoyed it I enjoyed it. This Duffy show really made everyone happy.

Thanks Duffy    

Recount on time out with family and friends


“I got it!!” MY cousin Armani - Jean shouts. One day me and my family went to the beach called mission bay. Before we got there we went to count down to get some treats. The treats we bought was 1 Bottle of Coke,1 Bottle of Sprite,3 Boxes of Shapes and some lollies.

After that we put all of our food on the table and then us kids played on the park. Then we got off the park and played cricket I was batting first. My cousin Keri bowled the ball and I hit it. Next my cousin Armani - Jean bowled the ball and … as soon as I hit the ball I was out my cousin Armani - Jean caught it right away.

We all got a turn then we ate some food and then played on the park again. I went on the swing until we left so did my cousins. Then we went home and I played Xbox because I am a game freak. And then my cousins came over to my place so we played handball. I won most of the games in Handball. Then they left when I ask them to play on the Xbox with me.

Recount Scaffold

Beginning - this includes your hook. Start your recount with an exciting beginning that captures your audience interest levels
“Check” I yell as I get my friend sol in check while playing chess. Sol put up a good match in chess unfortunately I came out as the victor though. Then we went to our trip.

Ensure your recount covers the orientation: When, Where, Who, What, Why and How

Set your recount out in a clear logical order and in paragraphs

Write in the past tense

Use lots of adjectives - (describing words) personal thoughts and feelings

Language Features such as similes, metaphors, onomatopoeia

Use connectives
Sol, me,Youthtown Panmure and Youthtown Pakuranga went to Extreme Entertainment. I had some money so I bought Sol and I a lift +. He enjoyed it alot.I enjoyed it and it was delicious.

He was cool to hang around with. We played heaps of games at Extreme Entertainment. They were so fun and we cheated in one. It said two players but we had 3 - 4 players.

On our way back to Youthtown in panmure someone brought their phone to Youthtown and played the eminem song. Sol was a rapper so he sang along. I called Sol eminem jr because he was that good.

After we got back to Youthtown we played dodgeball. Some kids did craft and some others did cooking. There two sessions in each group. I used both on dodgeball.

Three Step Dodgeball was a good game. When it came to throwing balls don’t get hit by mine and that’s all i’m going to say. I wish I could go to Extreme entertainment again but with my family instead and maybe Sol.

I had a blast at Extreme and look already got a nickname for it. I hope Sol had a blast I wonder if Sol won. On the bottom of the lift + cans there are codes to see if you won 5,000 but I don’t have a phone so I can’t text it 811.   
Sums up how you felt about the experience.

I felt amazing and sad at the same time. I felt amazing because I had great time. I felt sad because I didn't have a phone to text to 811. But I had a great time at Extreme.
