The Last Days Of School...

Wow it is the last days of school and I am so exited. People are moving all of the furniture. My class has not moved yet but that is okay because we get to keep our stuff longer then the other classes. I can not wait for the holidays so I do not have to wake up early.

Well some classes are on free time and the others are playing some games with their class mates and their teachers. My class is having free time because we have neetbooks. I love watching people having fun.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!
MERRY CHRISTMAS!

My reflection

How has having a netbook connected to the internet helped my learning this year?

  • What special thing have you learnt from your teacher this year?
On my netbook I have been using math whizz, xtra maths and our class site this has tort me my - + x % and my decimals.  
  • What significant thing have you learnt all by yourself - maybe online
               I have learnt who to speak proper english.
  • What have you learnt from your friend this year
               My best friend Keis has helped me with my maths whizz. My friend sarah has helped me at literacy work.
  • What have you learnt from someone outside of your classroom this year (ie not teacher or classmate)
  • My Dad and my mom helped me with some of my work
  • How have you helped other kids learn this year
               I have helped some of my classmates with some of my work.
  • How have you grown your key competencies through using digital tools this year
               I do not have to go to the teacher for him to mark my work I can go on the class site and      share it with him.

My edited version of plane crash

One morning at the airport there were 50 people going on a private  jet. They were very rich so they asked for the best pilot they have at that airport . The pilots name was Jess she was the best pilot.The boss of the whole airport was mark. The backup pilot was Kyle he was very jealous of Jess because he never got a trophy.

So Jess and the 50 people headed off to scotland in there fantastic jet. Sooner after they left they almost made it to scotland so the pilot pulled out the landing gear but it was stuck to the side the pilot was panicking so she hit the brakes. Shockingly the  jet started to drop and it crashed in the middle of nowhere.

Luckily the  50 people only has minor injuries and severe burns. Then they looked at the plane and it caught on fire. So they headed off to find some people for help. Then the 50 people all huddled up while the pilot went to find someone for help and one of them said “ I think that the pilot did it on purpose” “yeah” said the other person. After that the pilot came back and said “ sorry there is no one here we are going to have to find our own food and drinks. “And I heard you say  I crashed on purpose but I didn't” The people believed her and off they went.

The next day all of the people could smell pork because the pilot found a pig and killed it.
“Wakey- Wakey rise and shine” said the pilot here is some food for us. When they finished their food they went off to make there own clothes out of leaves and leopard skin and so forth.
The girls had  cheater skin as a top and flax as their skirts with flowers, on the other hand the the boys had pants made out of monkey fur and leopard skin as there tops.
The next morning when they woke up they heard a helicopter coming to rescue them so they climbed up  the ladder and went back to New Zealand to their family and Jess got fired.
