Term 3's Assembly !!!

This term is term 3 and our topic is Game On. First up was team 1 and they were all about the Gleason 2014. It was a video about them trying to compete in the Gleason world cup 2014. It was funny because they were assessed by the queen and the queen was hilarious. I liked their performance and the movie they put together. After they were finished it was onto the next team, team 2.

Straight after Mr. Jacobson said “Now it is time for team 2” they stood up and started their awesome act. They were quite the same as team 1 but they were slightly different because they did the Gleason world cup 2014 as well. I liked their one to because they were doing races and pulling the funniest faces. When their performance was finished everyone gave them a round of applause. Then it was time for the next team 3.

Then it just went on and on until it came to the best team, team 5. It was cool because all of our teachers went to different countries.  it is cool and fun. As soon as the movie started the music started and it was just amazing. The best thing of the movie is when Miss. Clark went to U.S.A because she saw Kim Kardashian. I would love to see her in person.

Over all the assembly was awesome it was fun seeing all of the performance’s and act’s. I like the topic it is amazing...... Game On !!!!      

What I Did In The Holidays !?

In the holidays it was not very cool because in the first week I was sick so I had to stay home and watch T.V or read a book so it wasn't fun at all. The only good thing about being sick is that I didn't have to do work and I didn't have to clean or do anything I just sat around in bed watching T.V so it wasn't so bad. So in the first week it was a sick week for me. It wasn't a good way to start the holidays.

Then in the second week I started to clear up and so I got to do my sports and play with my brother and my niece Chante’ and it was a bit fun. So when I started to feel better we went to the Auckland museum. We packed a lunch for afternoon tea so that when we got hungry we had something to eat.

When we finished at the museum we went to the greenhouse and had a look at all of the interesting and weird flowers and plants. it was cool and we saw a lot of big gold fish. I liked the second week because it was better than being stuck at home doing nothing. Then I went to tennis and played some games with my coach and the other players. it was fun.

Our Planets In The Solar System !

This week we have done another quiz and I am going to talk about the positioning of the planets in the solar system. I hope you can learn a lot about earth and where we are. This week I did not do a visual question I did just did a writing down question.

Well we all know that we are part of the solar system and that we are positioned in the universe. Earth was believed to be the centre of the universe. But by the 21st century, through the invention of high powered telescopes, the overall structures of the visible universe has begun to become clearer. Here is the positioning in our solar system. 1st there is the sun then there is Mercury then Venus then there is our planet Earth. After this comes Mars followed by Jupiter Saturn then Uranus. Afterwards there is Neptune and there is a planet called Pluto which they have recategorised as a dwarf planet.
