Farewell 2012, room 13, Tawa intermediate

My time at Tawa Intermediate has been one of the best times in my life. I will never forget the amazing people and amazing friends I have made in this class. I have loved being in this class. We have done so many awesome and fun things in this class that I will never forget.

Some of my highlights have been camp. Camp has taught me how to do so many things and it has just been an awesome time. I have also loved all of the art that we have done. The mosaic and the panels I have definitely got better at art and have become more of a creative person. Also getting in to the top 40 in the outlook for someday movie competition we entered.

My low light has been losing dodge ball. I thought that we were gonna win but we didn't. that was disappointing. I also didn't like the homework or cross country.

I feel scared about next year because I'm going to high school. and I'm really nervous and happy  at the same time to meet new people. I will never forget Tawa intermediate I  will never forget this year and last year. I will Cherish every last moment I have left with with my teacher. and my friends I will miss everyone in room 13 . I will never forget you guys!

My little sister Sienna is one of the most important things in my world. I would do pretty much anything in the world for her. Like go to chipmunks for her 6th birthday party.


It was a horrible rainy Saturday morning. When I walked  in  I thought I was going to go deaf. The crying the screaming and yelling I just could not take  it. As soon as we sat down my sister Sienna saw her friend Sophie and they both sprinted to the slide. It looked so much fun but I  was to old. People took a long time to get here but I did not know why. It was nearly time to go to the party room and eat. But then I realised something bad.

"Oh No"

"What is it" says my Mum

"I  wrote the wrong time on the invitation" I say very worried

"Is that why people are running late?" My mum said.


But it did not matter everyone is here now so everything is fine. Time for lunch!

Getting all the kids was hard since I lost everyone but when I found everyone it was OK. I was a bit jealous of the kids since they had food and I did not I mean what if I wanted some juice? When Charlie the chipmunk came I was kind of scared of him but he was not here for long. We had cake and it was time to play again.

The slide I was standing there eyeing it up it looked so bouncy and so fun. I just could not help it. I just had to got on it.I climbed up it looking out for little kids and then it was my turn.I bounced on it and then
Wosh! I went down really fast. As soon as i got of I was fighting with a little kid about how I was allowed to go on it. But then I was saved by my dad because he wanted me so that was good.

One by one the kids left and I got tired. We could finally go home. 

I had a good time at my sisters birthday I made new 5 year old friends they were all so cute but I just wanted to go home.

How the world started.

Have you ever wondered  of how the world started? I have  thought about it a lot  and it really makes me think.

 I get really confused because people tell me that god created the world but if he did then how did god get here in the first place? Some people tell me that monkeys and apes were here before we were but I still get confused. Sometimes I think that the world just appered out of the blue.
But then a  leaf turnrd into a dinosaur and had baby dinosaurs. Although it makes me think because how did the first ever cave man get here everything is really confusing.

There are some things in life that you just can not work out and maybe this is just one of those things.

Sustainability movie!

Ruby, Renee, Be, Arielle and I have been working on a movie about sustainability to enter for the Outlook For Someday movie contest. We have filmed nearly all of our movie and Ruby is working very hard on editing it, so far it looks great!

 Our movie is about water pollution. Me Renee and Be are news reporters. And Renee who is a fish interviews fish about how they feel about the water pollution and how it  is not good for life under water. Then me and Be say some facts about the water pollution.

Making the movie was really fun but it took a lot  of time and hard work. Our first idea was about something different but that did not really work so we had to do it on something else. We had to do all the storyboarding and planning the fun bit was making the fish for our heads to go through then the filming!

 For our whole movie we had to use the green screen and that was really fun. We thought that we filmed all of it but we had to re film most of our movie because we were not very good fish.
 think that we have a really good chance on winning this and that so far our movie looks really good and it will look even better when it is finished.

Out look for someday movie reflection:
Something that I learned from this project that I did not  know before was some of the Information about water pollution like:  How long different objects  took to degrade when there dumped in water.

I learned how to work a camera.

The part of this project that was most challenging for me was:
The green screen and trying to see what worked with the green screen and what did not.

The part of this  project I found most rewarding was:
When we were the first group to finished our movie.
