Hands on homework

Here is my hands on homework can art. I used Art Rage to make it. Hope you like it.


Here is two polygon shapes we made out of Popsicle sticks and clay. We learned this formula. E=V+F-2. E is for edges, V for vertices and F for faces. It really helps to know if you got the edges, vertices and faces correct. For our triangular prism we got 6 corners, 9 edges and 5 faces.
For the pentagonal pyramid there were 6 corners, 10 edges and 6 faces. Here it is.

My Spring Holiday

Dear 4.5
I would like to tell you all details about my spring holiday.

At the beginning of the holidays, my mum enrolled me for holiday Taekwon-do classes. My mum also told Olivia's mum about that. So we went to Taekwon-do together. We have to take classes an hour a day for all weekdays. At our first class we had so much fun. We learned these cool Taekwon-do moves and self defence. At the end of the day we got a gift. The gift was a cool Taekwon-do wristband to remember the first day of Taekwon-do. The rest of the days were really cool too. But our gift was different everyday, all were healthy foods.

On Friday of the first week we went to Rotorua where we used to live before we moved to Palmy.  I missed Taekwon-do class on that day. We left the house in the morning and my dad started to drive. My dad drove us to Rotorua. During the trip we stopped at some places to eat and rest. Before we arrived at Rotorua, we stopped at Taupo lake. We took lots of photos there. We also had our lunch at KFC Taupo. After lunch my dad drove nonstop to Rotorua. We arrived at Rotorua around 2:00Pm.

In Rotorua, we stayed in lake front Novotel hotel. We went to our family friends house for dinner. I had fun playing with my friend Ivan. We played ball, soccer on Playstation, hide and seek. We played this game where we try to hide and someone has to find you and tag you with a ball. I also played on his keyboard. Then we came back to the hotel at 9:00Pm. While my mum was taking a rest at the hotel, my dad and I went to a fun fair in front of the hotel. We went on the Bumper Cars and the Ghost Train. We also went to these mini games. Their was the clown game where you put 5 balls in a clown's mouth and try get a winning number. If you get a winning number you get a prize. I didn't get a winning number but the man who was working at the clown game gave me a prize anyway. I got to choose from a fake key necklace or a Taonga necklace made with a New Zealand Paul shell in a shape of a heart. The answer was pretty obvious. I chose the Paul necklace. There were other games I played but I forgot them.

The next day was a Saturday market day in Rotorua. My family and I skipped breakfast and instead we went to the Saturday market to have our breakfast. We had chicken and lamb barbecue and I also had an ice cream. After that my mum and dad send me to my old BFF Alicia's house. I spent the whole day with Alicia until 8:00Pm when my dad came to pick me up. During the day we played on minecraft on the Xbox. Our friend Mikayla also joined us on the play date. I use to go to Otonga School when I was in Rotorua and I was a yr 1 and 2. (Click here to go to Otonga School website) As I was saying, we also walked Alicia's 2 dogs. Alicia has 9 pets, dogs and cats. We walked her 2 dogs in the woods behind her house. It is really cool that she has the woods in her backyard. It was really cool. We took the short cut. We were walking with her dad and pretending that he was evil. We tried to run away from him. While Alicia's dad was out of sight, we talked about making our own weapons. We were thinking that at home we will make weapons. I will have a healing potion and a dagger, Alicia will have a sword and Mikayla will have a bow and arrow. When we got home we started to create. Since making a healing potion is hard, Alicia and Mikayla helped me. Alicia got an empty jar and I filled it with water. We also putted some coke inside. We poured in some soap, dabs of blue and purple nail polish, some perfume to make it smell good and some m&ms. Then Alicia's dad came with noodles. We all got a bowl of noodles. Me and Mikayla were eating it properly with a fork while Alicia was eating her noodles with her hand and eating it dry. There were these spices and Alicia's dad told me to try one out. I tried the sour cream and onion. In really liked it. Alicia told me to put the sour cream and onion spice in the healing potion. I did. The healing potion was this pinkish reddish colour. After noodles we went into Alicia's room to find more stuff for the healing potion. After that my healing potion was finished. Mikayla and Alicia started to make their weapons. Now that my healing potion was finished I needed to make my dagger. We were thinking of making our weapons out of cardboard but Alicia didn't have any. Instead, me and Alicia made our weapons out of hard paper. Mikayla wanted to make her bow and arrow out of sticks and long leaves.  Alicia made her sword and made one side of the sword clean and the other side filled with blood. I had trouble making my dagger. I didn't even know what a dagger is. Alicia and Mikayla told me that a dagger is like a mini sword. It took me 5 tries to get it right. At least I finally got my own paper dagger. Mikayla couldn't do it. She had big trouble finding what she wanted for her bow and arrow. She couldn't find any sticks or long leaves. We were really happy about making our weapons so me and Alicia jumped on her trampoline. Mikayla finally found a perfect stick and a long leaf. She just pretended that there were arrows. Then my mum and dad came. Alicia's dad told my parents that I am allowed to stay till 8:00Pm. I was really happy. Alicia's dad took us to this horse paddock. We played lots of games there. When we got back Mikayla's  
mum was here. We had to say goodbye to Mikayla. When Mikayla left, me and Alicia played on minecraft on the Xbox. It was fun. Then Alicia's parents took us to the lakefront. We had hotdogs and chips. We fed some to the seagulls, baby geese, a goose, a black swan and baby swans. It was cool. Than we went back home. We went into Alicia's room and I saw some roller skates under Alicia's bed. I decided to wear them and I skated around the hall ways. Then my dad came. He was 5 minutes early. I told him that we still had time. So my dad talked to Alicia's dad for 5 minutes. Then I had to leave. Me and my dad got back to the hotel. Then me and my dad went to the spa and pool. My mum was too lazy to come. It was relaxing.

The next day me and my dad were sleeping happily when my mum woke us up. This was the day we had to leave. But I told my parents that I want to stay for 1 more day. My parents had to pay extra money to stay for another day just because they love me. We had so much fun. We went to Rainbow Springs and Skylines. Right now I am going to tell you about Rainbow Springs. This paragraph might be a bit long so be ready. In Rainbow Springs we first went to the Big Splash. It was awesomely cool. Look at the photo below. Look at our faces. Look at my mum's face. We had lots of fun. Than we went to this bird show. My mum did not like the bird show at all. I thought it was kind of cool. After the bird show, I got to play this game with the bird. What you do is, you give a coin to the bird. Than the bird gets the coin and slips it through the little whole of the money jar. Then we went to the Kiwi Encounter. We went with a guided tour. We learned a lot about the kiwi and the kiwi baby. Did you know that in New Zealand we only have the brown kiwi. After that we browsed around Rainbow Springs. I would love to tell you about the birds I have seen but I don't want to make a long paragraph like the last one. Then we went to Skylines. Skylines was just next door to Rainbow Springs so we walked there. At Skylines we went on the gondola up to Mt. Ngongotaha. Then me and my dad went on the luge for 3 times. What did my mum do? Well, she was so scared to ride the luge and spent the time by chatting with her friend on the phone while waiting for us on the mountain. Then we went to this restaurant in Skyvue restaurant. Skyvue is at the top of Mt. Ngongotaha. Also part of Skylines. In the restaurant, mum and dad had fish and chips while I got ice cream. Then we went to the jelly belly store in Skyvue. The shop was full of different kinds of jelly beans. Look below and you will see a picture of the jelly belly store. See how cool it was. Than we went to take some photos on Mt. Ngongotaha. After that we went back on the gondola to go down the mountain and we went back to Rainbow Springs. This time we went directly to the playground. Then we went back to the hotel. After that we went to the spa and jacuzzi and we called it a day.

The next day was our last day in Rotorua. We checked out from the hotel and went outside to the lake front. I got to blow lots of bubbles. It was fun. Then we went back home to Palmy.

When we went back home, it was the usual routine. I went back to my Taekwon-do class everyday. On the last day of Taekwon-do, we did a photoshoot. We also got a certificate and a gift.

My holiday were ended in a good way because I got to watch Percy Jackson, The sea monster with my mum and dad on Saturday. Guess what, it happended just now.

I am a little bit sad about school holiday ending but I am also happy because I get to meet my friends again.

We are learning how to spell words containing plurals.

Character Description

We are learnng how to write a character description using similes.

My mum could be short for size. She wears high heels most of the time to be tall. Her high heels are like growing elephants.

She has dark twinkling eyes. They twinkle as if it is moonlight. She has a tan type of skin. Her skin is like puffy clouds.

She normally wears dresses to look beautiful. I mostly see her in bright colours like the rainbow. But when she picks me up from school, she would wear a thick jacket and some sneakers. At home she would wear warm comfy clothes.

She has black hair. Her hair shines like diamonds in the reflection of the water.

She would wear make-up and lipstick as red as blood.

She speaks with a cheerful excited voice. She also would sometimes talk like a serious person.

She would act like a business lady late for the job. She is very funny like a hilarious actor.

She would give me a great big laugh. She would give me a chuckle whenever I say something funny. She would give me a puzzled look when I do something wrong. Her smiles are wide as a hippo's belly. But sometime her smiles turn into serious anger issues. She would yell like an disappointed giant chasing you and wanting to eat you. Her smiles are bright like the sun reflecting on your laptop. Her smiles bring joy to everyone around her.

Whenever she picks me up from school she would sit on the playground planks. She would try make a discussion with the people around her. When she goes to a restaurant she would try act fancy like the queen. She would try dress smart and pretty especially in England.

She cooks the best food for the family. Better than my dad. I love my mum and I always will. She is number 1!

Calendar art

We are learning about Kidsedchatnz and how the different twitter symbols work.

Here is a picture of my calendar art. To make it we used Pages. We used the text box and and made it big to fit the page. We chose a colour of our background and coloured our colour in our text boxes.

Then we add a title. The was Kidsedchatnz. Kidsedchatnz is a place in twitter where schools can talk about education. Then we add more text boxes and write some cool stuff about kidsedchatnz. We use cool fonts and different colours to make it stand out. Some people took some to make it perfect. Then we show it to Stephen.

Stephen checks it if it is ready. When your poster is ready its time to print. We get a twitter bird and colour it in light blue. Then we make some symbols. We make the normal symbols that you normally see in twitter. We cut them out and stick them on the twitter bird. Then we showed it to Stephen. Then he gets black paper and stick it behind the poster. There you have it. Thats how you make a kidsedchatnz poster. If you want to find out more click here


Today we are learning about rules. I made my own rules. Try figure it out. If you figured out the answer leave a comment. Hope you like it.

Library Hub Launch

On Monday 5th of August was the RSS Hub Launch. The whole school had to dress up as their favourite book character. I dressed up as Alice in Wonderland. I skipped into the car to school. I felt worried. I took my little cute hair band off. Just in case it's not Book Character Day. In the car I asked my mum "What if the RSS Hub Launch was next week?" My mum replied "Of course not." I entered the class room ant put my normal stuff away. I went outside immediately. I wanted to know what other people were dressed like. Then other people came. They saw with my sky blue and white dress. I was embarrassed. Everybody kept asking me who I am. It hen it was the the parade. It was spectacular. I hope you were there with me.

My holiday at London and Paris

Two weeks before school holidays, I went to London & Paris together with my family. We started our journey by taking Air New Zealand flight from Palmerston to Auckland. We stayed in a hotel in Auckland for one night.

The next morning we took Korean Air Lines from Auckland to South Korea. Gangnam Style! It took 12 hrs to arrive at Incheon, South Korea International Airport. In the plane, me and my dad watched a couple of movies while my mum was sleeping through out the journey. We stayed in a hotel in South Korea for one  night. I thought that the hotel was cool. The room was spacious and the buffet was delicious. For breakfast I ate lots of Korean dumplings. Oh, how yummy!

That afternoon we took Korean Air Lines again from South Korea to London. The flight took about 11 hrs to arrive at London Heathrow airport. We stayed at the hotel near Reagents park in central London. The next day we went shopping to Oxford street. My favourite shop was Hamleys toy store. Hamleys was a huge six story building packed up with different variety of toys everywhere. It is one of the biggest toy stores in the world! Once I entered the I felt excited. The next day was my daddy's admissions ceremony from Royal Collage. On that day I met Michelle, my youngest cousin for the first time. During the president's speech I almost fell asleep. After that my daddy received his membership diploma. Then we had dinner at the Collage.

The next day we went to Disneyland, Paris together with Michelle's family by Eurostar train. The journey took about two hrs. During the journey Michelle was playing on my i-Pad while I was sitting down on the train feeling bored. Finally we arrived at Disneyland! I was so excited to have fun. We stayed in hotel called 'Dream Castle Hotel' The hotel was cool. I felt like that I was really in a Dream castle. We stayed in Disneyland for 4 nights. The first thing we got was a Disneyland balloon. Me and Michelle got one each. The balloon was filled with Helium gas so it can easily fly away. We went on lots of rides and even met Chip & Dale, Donald Duck and even Minnie Mouse. We got lots of toys too. In our  rooms we had one huge bed and a bunk bed. The bathrooms were really nice. 

On the third day we visited the Eiffel Tower. The line was huge and it was so hot. It took forever. But it all payed off when we arrived at the top of the Eiffel Tower. Oh, it was beautiful. The next day we visited around Paris with the tour bus. I took many pictures with my own pink camera. All the buildings in Paris are so huge and grand. Everything was expensive. One glass of fresh fruit smoothie cost 12.5 euro. On our final day at Paris, we went to Disneyland again. We visited Walt Disney park that time. I found so much fun riding the train around the park and experiencing movie effects. At night times there are fireworks. The fireworks looked so cool. There was this thing called the world of colour. It was during the fireworks. I felt so amazed. It was spectacular! 

We went on Eurostar train again and went back to England. We went to this place called Southport. This is where my uncle, my daddy's twin brother lives. We stayed at their house for a couple of nights. Me and Michelle did fun stuff together. On the last day of staying in Southport we had to go to London. We had to say goodbye to Michelle's family. We went to the train station to get on the train to London. The moment we went on the train, Michelle cried because she was going to miss us. My mum also cried because she was going to miss them too. The train started to go.

In London we went on a tour bus and visited around London. We went back to our hotel and stayed there for a few nights.

We went back to New Zealand on 14th of July, but this time we didn't sleep anywhere. And we arrived at Palmerston North on the 16th of July.

I felt really lucky about this trip. I discovered new things and experienced lots of things.

Cross Country Reflection

Today we did cross country. Before the race I felt really nervous. First the year 6s had to start. Then the year 5,4 and 3s. When the year 4s had to start I did not feel that excited. 

Nick was in the starting line ready to start the race. First we did some exercises just to get warmed up. Then Nick held the horn ready to blow it. He said "ready, steady, go." I tried to run as fast as I could.

During the race I felt like I was riding the wind. It felt great. I herd the crowd cheering and feet stomping! I passed a few people while I was running. 

When I was near the end I saw Stephen at the end taking photos. I felt really proud of myself. I am now excited for the real cross country. I hope you feel the same way!


This is an video of me doing the perimeter of my room. Hope you like it.
The video will tell you more information.

My holiday

In the holidays I went to Wellington. Actually, I don't remember what I did in Wellington, because I went there near the beginning of the holidays. When I arrived home I did the usual stuff I always do. I also watched a lot of TV!

On the last Friday of the holidays, my BFF Olivia came over to my house to have a sleepover. Me and Olivia watched the movie Alex vs Alex on my I- Pad. After that we watched some videos on YouTube. The videos were about Minecraft. Next we made an I- movie video about spy's.The title was the BFF SPY'S. Then we went to bed. Olivia asked me to wake her up when I wake up, because she knew that I can wake up early.

So I woke her up at 6:40.
We were  the first ones to wake up. We went to the Living Room and watched Minecraft videos. When my mum woke up she went to have a walk around the block. Then Olivia's mum came to pick her up.

After that a cute cat came to play. She came to our house for two days.

After that my family went to eat. We ate alot! After that we came home with a lovely feeling.
