Being a year 4

This year being a year 7 was lots of fun because I like playing capture the flag after lunch.
I enjoyed playing handball with my friends outside but only sometimes I win.
I liked learning sports like basketball it was fun because we got to play a game and learn how to step.

I liked creative strand because we made maori patterns we made a big board with designs.
The designs on the border were maori patterns, turtles, flowers, samoan designs.
We also carved a piece of wood and Painted it, after we painted it we put it on the paper and carved it some more.

I liked going tech I didn't really like graphics But I like hard material because we made a necklace. I made a koru It was fun we first had to get a piece of wood then draw a design after that we add the metal called pewter then we had to file it then next we use the sandpaper and then polished it. My favourite one was food because I like to eat we made lots of cup cakes
It was yum.

Action World

On Friday we got to go action world.
Action world is a big place with bounce castles but better.
At first we only had to go on 4 rides like an obstacle course.
We first went on these monkey bars but harder and the bottom was really soft we had to jump over the first 4 then we were done and could go on the big one.

We next went on the crazy ladder we had to claim up a really wobbly ladder to ring the bell.
I didnt make it because it was really hard. The next one we went on was the slide and jump and do flips. I went on the slide, We first had to go on in a bag and go to the top then slide down when I went down I face planted on the soft stuff.

The last obstacle was the rock climbing wall it a little hard but I never made the top.
When we were done he told us some rules then let us had free time .
I went to a place where you wrestle my friend James and I won.
I also went on the balance rope it look scary when I look down I almost made it but I fell down

my maths

There is a bottle of juice on the table that holds 3.5litres. Ana pours out a cup of juice that is .895ml. How much juice is left?

3.5 - .895 = ___

round .895 to 1.0 by adding.105

3. 5 - 1. 0 = 2 . 5
because we took away too much you have to give it back.

2.5 + .105 = 2 . 605

Movie reflection

Last week I made a movie about Nelson Mandela and Michael Jackson. You might wonder why Michael Jackson and Nelson Mandela.We chose them because they had the same message about the blacks and whites together. But Michael Jackson said his part thru music. My group was just a pair, me (Jayden) and Zyrin.. We were trying to compare Michael Jackson and Nelson Mandela together, and see what we got out of it.This was quite tricky. We got a few ideas like from Michael Jackson singing the song the man in mirror.

In our movie I had animations, I had an animation of Zyrin moving his mouth so when he did the voiceover I could try do it in time. But I failed it wasn't in time that much. My graphics were a kind of good because I never traced. The body was good but the face wasn’t. I need to practice drawing faces.
I used to have lots of animation but I forgot to title and I didn’t save it so someone deleted all my work and I had to start again.

Jayden,Lukis,and Billy Martin Luther King

P1:  This week marks the 50th anniversary of the I have a dream speech by Martin Luther King. On August 1963 in Washington DC, underneath the statue of Abraham Lincoln was where he made his remarkable speech. He gave this speech because he was fighting for racial equality so that some day the blacks and whites would live in peace fairly.

P2: Martin Luther King was born on January 15th 1929. He was a lawyer but was also a minister. And he also got stabbed but he managed to recover. Then a few days after  his house got bombed, One day something happened. He got assassinated. He fought for civil rights because there was no peace between white and black.

P3: Back in those days In America it was difficult for the black. because they couldn't sit at the front of the bus or if the was not enough seats for the whites they had to move to the back. Thats why one day Rosa Park confronted the white bus driver saying that she would not go to the back. So what happened was she had to go to jail

P4: In america 1960’s the black people were segregated. Martin luther King was good because he did peaceful demonstrations. Black also boycotted the bus so they lost lots of money.

They all did it until they change the rule of the bus so the blacks could sit anywhere on the bus

movie reflection

The message was about love and explain the song.
The techniques they used were a I pad with a variety of shots including close up and over the shoulder shots. The steadiness was all right but still good. The sound quality was great because they used lots of song. They had good acting that had lots of comedy and getting there at lip sing on time.

The quality was because they didn't have any graphics so they just use the background of there videoing. The flow was good only a couple of times it went bad but it was still good. I think they worked good together and they all did their fair share because they're only allowed 3 people 2 actors and 1 filmier. They also managed to get this movie on time.

This term we were lucky to do some art and movie making I did art because I learnt new thing like a wood print. We have to do wood prints this week its lots of fun. We have to carve a pattern on the piece of wood we get then paint it and put it on the paper. The first color is yellow you have to get a roller then paint it yellow and put it on the paper its looks cool. After the red you have to carve some more pieces out then put dark blue over the yellow then it makes it look even better. Then I got up to color red I had to first carve out some more pieces and color the wood red I rolled the paint on then stuck it on the paper it look amazing.

In the holidays my highlight was watching movies I watch about 7 movies, but my favourite movie was the new Wolverine. I also watch the movie’s karate kid, karate kid 2 and karate kid 3.
My second favourite movie I watched was despicable me 2 it was really funny.

I like watching the movie Despicable Me 2 because it had a little bit of action comedy and adventure. First it was about a big magnet taking a secret lab near the Arctic Circle .
So the secret agent company needs Gru to help them find something that was inside the secret lab. So one of the lady from the secret company named lucy comes and gets Gru. Gru was one of the best Super Villains.

The first thing they did was to be a disguise in a mall finding out who took the Mutagen PX-41
So the first person they went to was a Mexican man Gru new it was so they went to his restaurant. They found nothing there But a cheeky chicken that was chasing them.

Why is Sport important to me?

Sports is important because it keeps you fit by doing lots of exercise. It can help you learn new sports like rugby. You can learn how to tackle, how to step and much more. Sports can be fun and make you famous that's why when I grow up I want to be an All Black. My favourite sport is rugby because I like to tackle people down, bump people off and score tries. One of my favourite rugby players is Julian Savea. He plays for the All blacks and for the Hurricanes.

Sports is important because you can have lots of fun. You can learn basketball moves like a slam dunk and getting a three pointer from behind the line. Basketball is my second favourite sport.  I like shooting hoops with my friends at the courts. Basketball can make you famous if you are playing in America because America has the best teams like Oklahoma City Thunders, my favourite team. My favourite player is Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook who both play for Oklahoma City. Kevin Durant is the second best basketball player in the world.
