Tallest Tower

video
On Friday 6th May we had a competition. Our competition was to make the tallest tower out of paper by using 1 meter of tape, glue and scissors. It was a very challenging competition because we could only use a little bit of every thing. But I think this was going to be cool because we now know more ideas.

My idea was to make a tripod and put the tower in the middle of it. Studamyer and I tried and tried but it was very hard and tricky. The hardest thing was trying to make the tower stand. Mr S gave us a couple of hints about the paper. His hint was if you bend it it will fall. Our paper wasn't very strong so it made it harder to make a tower. The paper was so mushy that it just felt like a yuck squishy pillow.

With a small tiny tripod I rolled and rolled paper together. Our tower started to get bigger and bigger. As soon as the tower got bigger it started to fall down. I thought I had a good idea so I tried it. It was to cut a little bit of paper and wrap it around the bits that were falling. Studamyer and I were testing and restarting all our ideas. But in the end we failed.

Partly-Cloudy Movie Review.


This is a movie we watched called Partly Cloudy. The characters are clouds and Storks. The Movie took place in the beautifull sky. The Storks have jobs, and they need to deliver the babies to there mum and dad. The main part is when the poor stork had to take the vicious babies like crocodiles and sharks. The cloud was furious and angry. The Stork got sad and left. He came back to his cloud with armor. The story ends in a sad way because he still has to diliver the angry babies.

Rugby

On the 13th of june we played rugby. It was a very hard tournament, but in the end we won. It was so cool. We had fun. I brought some money so I bought hot chips. Our first game was against Panmure Bridge. Then Mr S chose the team. He called out our running on team. It was me. I was ready to play and bump people of. I am the Half back for my team, I love my position.

Street Fighter.


Street fighter is a very cool game. I think it is one of the best game in the world. They have very cool characters like Ryu and many more. I think he is the strongest off them all. All of the fighters have awesome moves. They are all strong but Ryu is just to good. Street Fighter made its debut in the arcades in 1987. It was designed by Takashi Nishiyama and Hiroshi Matsumoto. The player took control of martial artist Ryu who competed in a worldwide martial arts tournament.

Camp 2011

On Wednesday excited I was siting with my group, TRUE CREW on the cold breezy hall floor. The year 5 and 6 campers were waiting quietly for our instructions. Then we walked in two lines to the bus and jumped in to head of to ymca pools in panmure to have a swim.



At the hot cooking pools we sat down on the concrete by the water objects watching the year 5,6,7 and 8 camp races in the pool back stroke,Free style and many more Races. After the races we went to get change in the changing room. Then we went to sit down on the grass under the nice breezy tree. Walking down to the pool I jumped into it and then played games.



The next day we went to SKATELAND my favourite activity for camp. Some of the people from True Crew like me went with Matua Heemi in his car to Skateland in Mt Welington in the afternoon to skate. When we got there the rest of the group were still coming while we put our skates on. After putting on our skates we skated to the ring. Just as we skated into the ring the rest of the group came. We were skating for about 10 minutes then played games.

NIKE SHOES

In the weekends I saw these very awesome shoes. They were Nike's air flight and Air forces, that looked cool. I said to myself what shoe should I buy? They all look cool. We went to dress mart. My mum always takes me there because its cheaper. My mum said, "Quick, which ones?" I said give me 10 minutes and I will decide. Time was up and I had to choose. I chose the Nike Air Flights because it had my favorite color on it.

They are the same.

Dom Torreto



Dom Torreto is very cool in all sort of ways. He has heaps off movies. He is a movie star. I think he is the best actor in the world. The best thing I like about him is his voice. His voice is vibrating and he is very bulky. The best bit I like of him is the part in fast five when he pulls the volt with a Dodge. He has very cool cars like Dodge Chargers and many more. He is the best driver in the world. He has heaps of skill with cars.

Mt Wellington.

On Saturday the 21st of may me and my team played Ellerslie Eagles at Thomson park. Our team were losing in the first half but we never gave up. Their coach put all there big boys on all day. There big boys got tired. As we had the ball the reff blowed the whistle and it was half time. We all jogged of and had a team talk. Then we put all our good players on like me. I was prop and my mate Antonio. He bumped all of our players off and passed it out to the wing. "Yay," I said. We finally got a try. At the end we won 24 to 18.
