What: we have just competed in the kauri athletics 
So what: 
I was proud if high jump because I came 4th 
The most challenging one was long distance because i got tired easily 
I want to be able to throw the discus ALOT further 
I was really surprised at long jump because that's my worst one and I didn't do that bad in it 

Now what:
Next time i want to come a place in high jump
How I should try my hardest to come a place

Life long learners

What: to show that learning never stops we have identified what we learnt in the holidays

So what: in the holidays I learnt how to plug my DVD player in because my brother likes to use mine and when's he's finished I'm always clueless of what to do with it and how to make it work again because if I do it wrong my TV makes a annoying buzzing sound but luckily my dad helped me and it's very easy he just told me where to plug it in and what are the exact plugs the yellow, white and red go in.

My haunted house writing

It all started on a dreary Monday at the time 6:00 pm I was going out for a late walk before dinner. While I was walking in the very corner of my eye was a old moldy, disgusting looking house. So I quickly scanned it and the first thing I noticed was a divine looking pile of money and yes money in a life threatening house and YES would it be worth it? Well I think so I have nothing to lose, don't I? 

When I turn the dusty doorknob I feel something's not right… I feel like a creature is only centre metres away from me. I just slowly scan the room while clutching the doorknob. I was terrified and frightened all at the same time. I knew I came here for a reason… so I took a slow step into the house and I heared my left foot stepping on a moldy block of wood slowly creaking…

Then I carried on I told myself to be quick so then I just ran, while I was running I jut blinked for a second and then after I did I saw a Chucky looking baby doll appear in front of me. I was in the faze of fainting so I just quickly ran out while screaming horridly at the same time. 

I decided to NOT go in there ever, ever again so I just decided to keep it simple and throw rocks at the window disappointingly it didn't work. But then I realised it was Monopoly money all that time. I was very, very disappointed also no wonder the five hundred dollar was orange.

My perspective art

What: we have created perspective art that show objects close and far away.

So what: my art is based on a sunset neibourhood with the beautiful sky and the mild sunset and the slowly distant trees.

Lines: I used more straight lines at the bottem and more twisty lines at the top.

Texture: mostly my texture is dark but for colours like my grass and footpath are more light.

Colour: most of my art is realistic but for the houses it's very unlikely to see an orange house.

Shape: the shape of my houses are pretty small compared to my trees but my sun is probably one of the biggest things on my art.

Space: my things are spaced out pretty well but my houses should take up more space.

Now what: I would do my road more darker next time and my colours of my houses would be better if they were more dark.
