“OW” have you ever gotten food that looks delicious but tastes the total opus it? Well today my whole class had to eat weetbix with cream on top CREAM! are you kidding me. You have to buddy up with someone or anyone, after that you get a plate with weetbix and cream with a side of apple. your partner is going to be your hands and yes they are going to feed but from behind. My favorite part was when I get to eat from my buddy hands, especially when everyone was laughing at each other. When amethyst was trying to eat from my hand it look like she was going to eat my hand instead. Haha the most funniest part was when Isaac had cream all over his mother and it also look like he had a mustache. Decora look like she didn’t even want to eat any of it. At the end I felt sick and also cheerful because everyone was having fun and I felt sick because of the weetbix and cream with apples. “YUK” just thinking about it makes me want to puke.

Grass to Glass - the last 4 steps.


WALT: Add detail to the beginning of sentences.

As soon as the warm milk comes from the cows it goes straight into a fridge. Before the milk goes into the milk silo it has to be cold so the milk is cooled so the tanker can collect the milk.

There is a machine which separates the cream from the milk because so people don’t like cream in their milk. When the milk goes into a mince the milk and cream are separated.

The milk is heated up to 72 degrees celsius so that bacteria is killed by pasteurisation the milk. After that they put it down to 3 degrees celsius so the milk is still fresh to drink.

 Finally the milk is bottled, ready for you to drink. That completes the journey from grass to glass.

BASKETBALL!!!!

Have you played basketball before? Well room 6 maths have been learning basketball for 7 weeks, the people that teachers us basketball are choice Malik and choice Yaran.


We leaned jump stops, V dribble and the Beef, the Beef stands for balance, eyes on the target, elbow and fire, we also leaned a game called golden child. There are two teams one is a shooting team and the other team has to running, the running team has to get to the other side before the shooting team shoots the basketball in the hoop.When the golden child runs and the shooting team get a basket then the other team loses.
My favourite part in basketball is when we all get to play all kinds of different games and we got to play basketball in teams, the saddest part was when we were playing basketball nobody gave me the basketball except the girls in my team.The funniest part was when we always walked into the hall choice Yaran and choice Malik always tries to see if they can do a dunk.

The Blindfold Games.

Have you ever played the safety pin game before? Well Room 8 literacy played it this morning, I know it sounds boring but it really is fun to play.

This is how you play the safety pin game, first you have to get a bowl of rice then you put 20 safety pins or more in the bowl of rice, you will need more than one person playing with you and a blindfold. The aim of the game is to find all 20 safety pins in one minute, if you get more than the other person you get a prize at the end.

When the whole class was getting ready to play we were excited, as my friend Machelle began to serach though the bowl of rice we were yelling at her and she only got 2 points. It was my turn next and the safety pins felt exactly like the rice, it was so hard to find the safety pins because the rice felt exactly the same.

As I took the blindfold off  I could only see 3 points, but I was happy I got more than zero safety pins, I was yelling at my friends and saying “pick it up,pick it up, pick it up,” and they got more safety pins then me I. One of my friends got 9 safety pins and the other got 14 safety pins but the two boys that got the most was Flynlay and Andrew that got 15 safety pins.

The part that I like the most was when everyone was making a mess with the rice especially when Montel had his turn to find the safety pins.

The Chocolate Game.

Does anyone know what room 8 reading class did today? Well, when I was about to set on the mat Miss Lavakula said that the whole class is going to play a game.

First you have to form a large circle, then you roll the dice and when you get the number six you pick one clothing and five accessories from the middle of the circle.While you are putting on the items and someone rolls a six you have to take everything that you have on take it off.

As the dice came to me I didn’t want to see it.When I rolled it I got a six. The only thing that I put on was a jacket. Then someone said “six, six, six,” I took the jacket off and ran to my space. I didn’t think that I ever disagreed with chocolate before, then I wanted to eat it all of the chocolate I tried to roll a six every time when the dice came around.

Every time I tried to roll a six I always get five’s, two’s and four’s. Whenever someone got a six they made me giggle so hard that my mouth started getting numb. As I stared at the chocolate my tummy rumbled and I was eager to roll a six.

I really enjoyed it because everyone was smiling and having fun, I hope we get to play that game again.

My Holiday Highlight.

Have you seen the movie HOME? In the school holidays I did a few things, but one of the best moments I had was when my family went to watch HOME at the movies. As we arrived I could see a lot of people there, It felt like a whole herd of bull’s when we went into the cinema. I got straight into the snack bag and got the popcorn out and played on mum’s phone waiting for the movie to start.


My favorite part was when the alien named ‘Oh’ said “I put my hand’s in the air like I just do not care” and as he we saying that he was dancing with his hand’s up in the air. The sad part about the movie was when ‘Oh’ ran away to his spaceship, and the girl went to find her mum because the alien’s transported all the humans to Australia.


A week later we went to the movie’s for my dad’s birthday, when we were in line we couldn't decide what movie to watch. My mum wanted to watch ‘Cinderella’ but me and my little sister wanted to watch ‘The Spongebob Movie’ so we decided to watch Spongebob, YEAH!!! It felt like me and Peyton were so lucky.




The day after we watched ‘The Spongebob Movie’ I went to sleep over at my Papa Gordon’s house. When they came and picked me up my Papa asked if I wanted to take my bike, drawing book and my netbook. So he hooked my bike up to his bike rack on the boot of his car, and off we went to the skate park.


Did you know, that the skating bowl looks like the shape of a pear from a bird's eye view?
