Webzidazical - Don't Get Caught.

As I stared and watched different acts come on stage , I think I let my nerves get to me. “What if I go some where wrong?.” I mumbled , anxiously awaiting for my mask to arrive from the other room. It was the final night of the production. Named ‘Webzidazical’ and produced by our two talented teachers, Mr Jacobsen. “Hope I perform to the peek of my talent!” I whispered to myself.

Saving up all the practise , I knew that this was a night I would never forget. “Hope we do well!” I exclaimed to my friends. After finishing getting ready , all we had to do now was wait for our time to come. Being finally , handed my mask I was in need for an energy boost. Like chocolate ! “Mrs Lavakula , im CRAVING for chocolate. Could I hand out some of the chocolate fish please?” I said with a smile on my face , so big as if I was a joker. “Sure , why not?.” She replied.

Being held up in Room 8 , it was as dull as a boring birthday party. But except no friends and no family. No music and no food ! We were all just sitting there , with nothing to do but just to watch the performance go on. I mean not that the performance was getting boring but the atmosphere around me. “Mrs Va’afusuanga , there’s nothing to do in here!” I yelled , as if she was deaf. “Then why don’t you find something to do?” She replied and well it was worth a try.

As the time was ticking by quickly , it was nearly time for us to go on. Playing with cards and blasting music from one side of the room to the other , the night had actually turned out quite fun ! “Mrs Va’afusuanga was right!” Spoke my mind.”It WAS worth the try.” But my nerves were still getting to me and It was like I couldn’t stop them. Suddenly it was time. Time to make my mark on stage.

“Boom Clap , Boom Boom Clap Clap!” we all stomped , making our entrance on to the stage. I couldn’t help but notice the audience cheering for us. With different beats and rhythms came on to the stage , I felt like all the weight had finally being taken off of my back. Only seeing scary masks appear on the stage and from the back of the hall , “GO ALA!” I heard my mum scream from the distance. As my nerves started disappearing and the feeling of wanting to continue performing up on the stage , it was time for us to hop of the stage.

With a sign of relief , I thought that was the best performance ever in Pt England history. Jumping up with joy , I knew that I did my best and I knew that I would remember this night forever. “Hopefully I did this school proud!” I said , coming off the stage with a smile on my face.

Multiple Intelligence.

Multiple Intelligance. A website that would tell you which Smart we are. Firstly we had to fill out questions so they could add up all the answers. As you can see I am mostly Kinaesthetic . Kinaesthetic means that you are Body Smart. Meaning your athletic and you move around a lot by doing sports. My weakness is Logical. Meaning 'Number Smart' . I sometimes are unable to add up numbers or either way i'm not that strong at mathematics.

To me I really enjoyed taking this test . I think that I answered the questions truly and the final results were all true.

Questions About Earth

This term we are learning all about outer space. Firstly we had an option, it was to pick a planet and write down 10 questions that we didn't know about them. So here I gathered questions about earth and why do we exactly have earth ? The reason why I decided to pick earth was because I wanted to learn more about the place that we are living in but also why humans are living in a particular planet ?

It's Not About Winning !

“SPLASH!” as I slammed the light, soft sponge into the water all I could hear were my team mates telling me to hurry up. I couldn’t help but try and gather as much water as possible. Just so we could win the challenge! The senior block, home to years 7 and 8’s were all competing by classes to successfully earn the title “VICTORY”. Now I was eager to get that name.

With the scorching hot sun, slowly dieing down, all I could feel was the whistling wind blowing the tips of my hair. “Kaloni, pass it already!” forcing my dried throat to scream. Reluctantly throwing it with all her might, all I could feel was the freezing water hitting the side of my T-shirt. “Hahaha” I chuckled, turning my frown upside down. Then I knew it was pay back time.

“Come on guys, you can do it!” Ieremus yelled, but unfortunately I didn’t listen. Instead I slammed two rugby passes to my friends, hoping that they wouldn’t catch it. And, well they didn’t! Their T-shirts wet from dry and warm, to saturated and cold. “Sorry Tina and Kaloni!” I said, making them think it was an accident. “It’s alright!” they replied.

At the end of the day, our team unfortunately lost. We lost by having too much fun as in mucking around and by playing with the water!But I actually learnt something. I learnt that winning isn’t about everything, it’s all about co-operation (which we never used) and also about being a good sportsman. Which is all about having fun.

Maths Whizz

This term, we have been working on a new site called Maths Whizz. Its a site where we learn new strategies and become branier at maths !

Firstly, we were having to do an assessment to see where we were at. And I was having to work on my mutiplying big numbers using mental strategies. Over the past few weeks I think I have gained more and become more intelligent by using mental strategies ! I hope that I get to keep the work up.
