I woke up this morning and checked the calendar. It was my birthday! Should I have breakfast, nah. Present time, mum and dads present first, a white merino jersey,I put it on straight away. My brothers present next, I unwrapped it and felt something sticky, fly paper! When my friends came over I got my jersey really dirty so I chucked it in the washing machine. The next morning it was clean but it was minuscule, I forgot I couldn’t put it in the regular wash. I decided I was not going to tell mum because she would start fuming.
This term we red a book called See you in the cosmos and it is about a 11 year old boy called Alex. Alex thinks his dad dies when he was 3 and his mum has something wrong with her so he looks after himself, he also has a 24 year old brother who doesn’t live with him. He loves rockets so he goes to a rocket festival and launches a rocket he made then he travles round the country finding out alot of things that he wanted answers.
It is a book I definitly wouldn’t have read if we hadn’t read it in class but I liked it. The book was cool but it got really confusing at some points and I didn’t understand it.
My favourite character was Alex because he was funny.
People that I think would like to read this are poeple that like reading stories could of happened.

I am Maddie, an explorer. I have an amazing best friend called Maddie. She, like me, has the same name as me and we are both explorers! Me and Maddie were exploring in Wales when we came across what looked like an old abandoned lighthouse. Of Course, as explorers we entered, a big spiral staircase stood before us and again we began to climb. Up and around the staircase seemed to go, a long while after beginning our climb we emerged from the top of the staircase. Someone was already living there in darkness. She said her name was Maggie.
Last night we played hockey and we were winning at half time but at the end we lost 3-5. I played defense most of the time and when I was goalie I got very annoyed when I let a goal in. At 10 minutes left of our game I was about to tackle someone and they hit the ball and it hit me in the stomach and I got winded and a bruise. I went off and someone went to get an ice pack but there was nothing so they brought back a sopping paper towel. Me and my friend couldn’t stop laughing.
My favourite book is Harry Potter and the prisoner of Azkaban. I am up to The Order of the phoenix ( the fifth book) with reading. I have watched all the movies and we are listening to them on audio book and we are up to the last book The deathly hallows. The Prisoner of Azkaban is the third book of the 7 book series, the main character of the book is Harry Potter and he goes to a school that teaches magic. There is a new teacher at the school, Professor Lupin and they find out he is a werewolf. At the start of the year a prisoner broke out and broke into the school. Harry finds out that he is innocent and his godfather. That is my favourite book.
It was Christmas night and we were opening the last of our presents by the now dying fire, when suddenly, darkness enveloped the room. The fire went out instantly. I ran outside where we parked our vehicles and into the garage. I wrenched open the small chest full with dads head torches, I grabbed a few and raced back to the lounge. When I turned them on I saw my family was missing. I turned round hoping they would jump up and turn the lights back on. That never happened. I started to panic, the whole town was gone too.
In the holidays we went to Castle Hill in Athur’s pass, we stayed there for a couple of days with some friends. We went bike riding,( the track said it was a down hill track but half of it was up hill) up to Castle hill( lots of rocks in one place that look castle ruins) and there was a water slide there and the water was freezing so we didn’t do that long. The house we stayed in had a spa so we went in that every night.
When we left we came to Wanaka because all our family was there for my uncles wedding but it was postponed.
When we finally got home we did gardening and played Cricket.

This term I enjoyed playing touch and having Youthtown come to our school.
In class I loved doing art and ( paper lizards, whats in our head, circle art and silhouette art) math and hundreds club, I enjoyed learning what volume was and I got on 4 minutes for hundreds club. I liked doing the explanation writing and poems about the Covid-19 alert levels and what we did in the summer holidays called That Was Summer. I like going to the dam with the whole school and seeing all the things that make the dam work.
I disliked our health unit when we had to talk about all the gross stuff and write a book about it all. Going to the library and not reading but sorting out books. Writing a explanation report about puberty, I found that really hard. I didn’t love learning about treaty of waitangi.
On Thursday we went to benmore dam to learn how the dam generates power. I had so much fun going to the different places and learning how it works and how often they upgrade it. I learned that the lake started off as the waitaki river and that there are 16 people between all 3 dams. My favourite part was seeing the generator working.
