Camp Keswick

Camp Kezwick has been an amazing experience for me throughout the past 4 days in Rotorua. Rotovegas had many fun activities and tourist attractions, this beautiful place had a lot of fresh water lakes to hot mud pools to a very stinky egg smell. We did a lot of walking in bush walks and forest.

Going camp at Rotorua was a fun experience. Because we got to watch a show and do many exciting stuff. Most of the activities we did we had to walk but that was still fun because we saw different view. Probably the most hilarious was the sheep show. It was this man talking and making these funny jokes. He was a funny man. But the best that I would have to say is the luge ride. It was the best of all.

They shifted away from their old house and was searching for a new one. So they stay at a hotel for weeks.  They were desperate for a house. They had a lot of money but just couldn't look for right house.

After sleeping, They woke up feeling excited, ready to go and look for a perfect house. Hoping in the car, then driving off, Jake suddenly heard something whispering. He ask to his sister “hey what do you say”. But She replied “Nothing”. Anixonly Jake was shock and was wondering who whisper at him.

The Three Hairy Apes

Once upon a time there live three apes Cyborg which is the smallest, Kuniunicle which is the middle size and Octshovablair which is the big fat meaty ape. “ Our banana tree has run out of bananas” said Cyborg. Kuniunicle Shouted “ I can see another tree and it’s full of yellow juicy bananananananananas.They needed a plan. They spotted a vine hanging from a solid branch but they have to swing on a vine to get across to the juicy tree. There is one problem it has a t-rex living under it. The t-rex was sleeping and the apes were ready to swing across when they saw the vines, but they woke up the t-rex who tries to eat them. The T-Rex roared- “rah rah rah rah”. Cyborg the anorexic one says “don’t eat me please I’m too little i’ve got no meat wait for the next one”. Kuniunicle is the medium size one that said “don’t eat me wait for the fat one”. Octshovabulair is obese that swang on the vine, then suddenly the vine broke, then Octshovablair squashes the t-rex while his bums clapping and doing a large earthquake fart.They finally all made it to the other side, “Thank the lord that we made it to these juicy bananas” said Kuniunicle. “Are you thinking what i’m thinking” said Cyborg. Octshovablair then replied “Yeah gee let’s twerk it out”. So in celebration and triumph they ate all the juicy bananas while twerking, and they all lived happily ever after. They then formed a dance crew and became back up dancers for Chris Brown.

Shang Haig's Adventure

Climbing the treacherous cliff,  Shang Haig hung on to unsteady rock. Gripping the rock with one hand, his muscles ached and ached as pulled himself up. Shang Haig  was determined to reach the Dojo. Finally he stood on steady ground. He could see the dojo in the distance. Although Shang Haig was fatigued he persevered and kept trudging along until the dojo was right in front of his eyes.  

Staring at the solid hefty door, he nervously knocked. Shang Haig could hear the footsteps of Sensei John. Opening the door sensei did not look happy as sensei mumbled “HUH!” and pointed to his right. Shang Haig was sad because he felt rejected. he thought he needed to meditate to get the sensei respect.  So he meditated day and night. Shang Haig took a peek and sensei was standing in front the doorway and pointed away again and slammed the door.

His head and shoulders drop and Shang Haig once again trudged away.  He turned around with anger clenched his fists and kicked the door open  Shang Haig was prepared fight sensei John. Sensei pointed to his right again and all along he was just pointing at a sign. That said “Use side entrance”. Shang Haig was embarrassed.

Making Ice cream

Equipment + Ingredients
1/2 Cup Milk
1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla
1 Tablespoon Sugar
4 Cups crushed Ice
4 Tablespoons Salt
2 Small size Zip-loc Bags
1 Large size Ziploc Freezer bag
Towel or Warm Gloves

1. We first Mix the milk,Vanilla and sugar together in one of the small size bags. Seal tightly, allowing as
little air to remain in the bag as possible. Too much air left inside may force the bag open during shaking.

2. Place this bag inside the other small size bag, again leaving as little air inside as possible and sealing well. By double-bagging, the risk of salt and ice leaking into the ice-cream is minimized. Put the two bags inside the large size bag and fill the bag with ice, then sprinkle salt on top.

3. Again let all the air escape and seal the bag. Wrap the bag in the towel or put your
gloves on, and shake and massage the bag, making sure the ice surrounds the cream mixture.

4.Five to eight minutes is adequate time for the mixture to freeze into ice-cream.

It tasted yummy,Delicious.

What does the salt do to the ice?

Making Bread with Mother King


Today, we made a tray of very delicious bread. We also had miss kings mum come to teach us how to make the bread. Mixing and pouring, we put together all the ingredients into a big bowl.
After we put together all the things in and mixed it all up it turned into dough we put it on the table. We then kneaded the dough and made it into all shapes and sizes.

On the tray and ready to go into the oven. We waited for at least ten minutes. Waiting patiently, out came the bread. It looked really YUM. I wanted to eat it ASAP as it came out. Quickly power walking to class, I jumped like a wild animal because I really wanted to munch it like a boss.  

Grabbing my bread roll, I cut it in half and I spread the butter all inside. Then I popped it in my mouth and it tasted sweet and delicious. lets hope we can make some more someday. I would just like to say thanks to mother king for getting the ingredients and giving up her time to show us how to make bread. If you would like to make some bread of your own here is the recipe songs are inspring, it has many encourigng lyrics. His new Song had came out and we took a look at it. It had words that I didn’t understand but miss king told us what they meant. Now we know what they mean and we are going to share our information with you.

The lyrics are about him growing up in a very tough and poor community,  he then grew up to be a very rich and wealthy man. To me these lyrics drive me along and helps me to believe my dreams and never give up on them.

The reason we are writing about this is because himself came to our school and donated 100,000 dollars ,yes you read right one hundred thousand dollars towards the manaiakalani trust. is a very genorus and kind hearted man.

Maths 2

This is another Strategies  that I have learn this term. -5+3=8 how did I get that.  You start with negative number and instead of going up number and go backwards. 5- -3=8 Now this is different the negative sign is next to 3 and the subtract sign. You do the opposite.

Maths Strategics

Guess my number
I’m going to teach you a magical mind trick.When solving equations with multiple operations it is important to remember BEDMAS. For example: Think of a number Add 3 then Multiply by 2 take away 5. We need to write it like this, 2(n + 3)-5=y.n is the unknown number y is the result of the calculations.To solve for n n=y-1/2
To find n we need to know y. We subtract 7 from y.

The reason we subtract 1 is because we have multiplied 3 by 2 to make 6, and need to find the difference between the extra that was never multiplied (5) the difference is 1.

Truth and Lies

Once upon a time there was a girl named Shae & she was a terrible liar, however one day everything was about to change...

Everyday she would tell her parents she would go to the swimming pools after school. So her mum would give her money. But instead she went gambling with a fake I.D card.

But one day she told a very huge lie about all of her bullies in her school. She would say that all of them had a gambling problem. But actually it was Shae that did.

Because of that, everyone who was involved in this lie was sent to the deans office, with their parents..., Including Shae.

Surprisingly Shae was expelled from school, and grounded for a whole year.

Without a doubt,  she ran away and went to stay at a mate’s place. She forgot all of her stuff except her clothes

Until finally she thought about changing her life.She said to herself “I think It’s time to apologize” I said.

Ever since, Shae changed her life, she became a better person. She always faced consequences and never spoke lies ever again.

The Moral of the story is to never tell a lies! You should always tell the truth And Never drag anybody into your own personal problems!

Finding Nemo

Underneath the cold blue sea, Dory swam up to Marlin and cheerfully exclaimed  like a happy clown “Hey Mr Grumpy Gills.” Dory was trying to cheer up Marlin “When life gets you down, you know what you gotta do?”.
Sitting grumpily on a rock Marlin replied, “I don’t want to know what you gotta do”.
Dory smiled and tightly grabbed Marlin’s finn, dragging him below the dark blue ocean she started singing a song “Just keep swimming, just keep swimming,  just keep swimming, swimming, swimming What do we do? We swim swim.”
Angry and annoyed Marlin shouted “Dory, No singing”.
”I love to swim. When you want to swim” Dory happily replied. Frustrated and tired Marlin grumbled “See I’m gonna get stuck now with that song now it’s in my head”.
Quickly Dory responded, “ Sorry.”

The Black Hole

During the midnight shift at work, John was drinking his cup of coffee while printing out papers. He felt really bored. Suddenly out of the photocopier came a white sheet with a very dark circle right in the centre. He laid his cup on the paper, and it  suddenly appeared as if the dark hole sucked up the cup . John thought  “What just happened here?”

Nervously, John slowly crept his hand into the mysterious dark hole. Feeling incredibly scared, he quickly pulled his hand back, he tried one more time, it was freaky for him. Quickly he grabbed the white cup. Wow! he thought.

While being amazed, something came up in his head. John had discovered what he could do with the black hole. Now he has the power to do anything. With a suspicious look on his face, he went over to the vending machine. Placing the paper on the wall, he excitedly grabbed a chocolate bar from inside.

Eating and feeling happy, he had the same look again. While eying the office, “hmm shall I go in or what?” said John. The door was locked but luckily he the power. He placed the black hole on the door and unlocked it from the inside. He looked at the safe.
John stuck the black hole on the safe with two small pieces of sticky tape. Grabbing the cash as fast as he could, he counted out 1, 2, 3, 4 and even more still. John was searching for more. He reached his hand in, still trying to get more.
