Cross Country

video
Nervously waiting on the cold hard concrete, I challenged myself to beat my mates at today's cross country. I thought it was going to rain but, as the race started it was only cold and really muddy. I was so tired and dizzy I thought that I was going to have to stop. After I had sprinted for the finish line I felt so proud of my self as I had come fourth.

Magic Number Seven

Seven is a magic number - at least it is for me! Against Marist, last Saturday, I scored seven tries. Straight from kick off I got my first try. At one point a really fast boy from the other team almost got a try, but I caught him and tackled him. It was a great game, and thanks to me, we won!

The Eruption of New York - July 1

video

What did I enjoy about it? I enjoyed making our movie. What could we have done better? Not play around during work time. What part did we do really well? Writing our voice over. What did I learn from doing this? I learnt how to make a volcano and an eruption. What would I change for next time? I would change the colour of the volcano.

Story Sculptures Volcano Report

video
A volcano is an opening in the earth's crust, through which lava, ash and gases flow. The word volcano comes from the Roman god of fire - Vulcan.
A volcano erupts when the pressure inside the earth builds up and needs to escape. Molten rock, in the mantle, heats up. The magma chamber fills up, then the magma pushes up the vent and out of the crater.
There are three main types of the volcano. One is a cinder cone another a shield or a composite. The most dangerous one is composite volcano because it erupts violently with lava and ash. A volcano can be active,dormant (sleeping) or extinct.
A volcanic eruption can be both destructive and beneficial. Falling ash is dangerous to aeroplanes, can cover buildings and make it hard to breathe. Lava flows and lahars destroy everthing in their paths. However, sometimes eruptions can creature new fertile land.
Ash,lava and gas from deep inside the earth can be very destructive and dangerous during a volcano eruption. However if we are careful we can enjoy the benfits of new land and fertile soil.

Favourite Camp Story February

At camp I went to Skateland. It was fun because I was going too fast. Then we had a race and I lost. After that we went to Ten Pin Bowling. First I got a strike and then another strike. At the end Michael had won. After that we went to rock climbing. I went on the biggest wall. It was hard. Then we went in the dark cave. Our shoes glowed on the wall when we climbed up in the cave.It was cool and scary because the cave was getting harder and bigger. Then we went to walk down to Tamaki College. We played touch there before we had to go and have a shower. James, Lorenzo, Max and I were playing touch. We were winning. After that we went to have dinner and it was delicious. Next we had dessert. Then we went to get our blanket to watch Willy Wonka. It was cold outside. Then we went to brush our teeth and we went to sleep. When we went to sleep it was cold. In the morning we had breakfast. It was yum. Then we went to do kayaking I was going too slow and my hand was sore when I was going slow. After that we went to cook damper. It was yum but my one was burnt.
