Immersion assembly

Nooo! Back to school. I spotted something strange while I was entering the hall for our Immersion Assembly. It was the first day of school and the staff were dressed up related to the topic for this Term is Mighty Mariners.

The Team that I liked was Team 4 It was Miss Squires,Miss V,Miss,Mr Barks and Miss Barks. Mr Barks looked funny because he had a Long red beard and Miss Barks said they were from “Greenland”. Mr Barks said It’s called Greenland to trick you into coming to Greenland. They said it’s really cold there like ice cold. Miss V was a Polynesian sailor they use a net to catch fish and brought coconuts so if they couldn't find any water they would drink the coconuts.

The next Team that I liked was Team 2 Miss She as a pirate and Miss burne as James Cook. It was funny because Miss She was poking Miss Burne with her pirate sword while Miss Burne was talking.

I liked this Immersion Assembly I hope that next years one will be as good.

A Weekend Experience

On Saturday 26th June, my mum and I went to the Highland Park cinemas to watch Shrek 4 (Forever After). My favourite part of the movie was watching Puss in Boots. I liked it because Puss in Boots is fat and he can’t do flexible things. Plus his boots can’t fit him anymore. I really like that movie because its different to the other Shrek movies.

The next day I went to Rainbows End with one of my best friend’s Matthais and his cousin. It was freezing cold. We went on the Gold Rush, Invader, Power Surge, Log Flume, Roller Coaster and the Motion Master. After we went toilet we made our way to the games arcade. We played heaps of games like a fighting one. You get tickets from some of the games for prizes. Me, Matthais and his cousin got 74 tickets altogether. But we didn’t spend it. Because we chose to go on the rides first.

Just jump in the car and go...

I was suprised. We didn't plan, mum just said "yes". My mum was listening to the radio when she heard one of the radio hosts talking about going to Rotorua. Trying the luge and going up the gondola. I didn't hear that I was too busy playing my PSP. Mum wanted to go to Rotorua to go on the luge again. In the past she came with her friends and they went on the luge. So mum packed our stuff and off we went to Rotorua. When we arrived there, we had to search for a hotel to stay at. The hotel I wanted to stay at was too big so we kept searching and found the Ibis Hotel on Rangiuru Street which was right in the city. My and I unpacked and drove to Skyline Rotorua. The gondola takes you up to the top of Mt Ngongotaha. Before you ride of the luge you have to put a helmet on and wait in line. There are three different tracks you can ride on. I went down the scenic track five times. The other two levels are for intermediate and advanced luge riders. My hands were really sore from holding the handlebars. Here is a video of my short trip.

Dolphins at Beachlands

Mum made me laugh. She told me she wanted to go out, when I asked her “where?” she said “I don’t know”. So we ended up at Beachlands… But before that we went to Manukau Westfield to buy two kites, one for me and one for my mum. We drove to the BP and saw my Grandpa. My mum asked him if he wanted to come but he politely declined. So we said “bye” and made our way to Beachlands. When we got there I hurried to try out my kite. It wasn’t very windy so it didn’t go very far. Mum and I went for a walk and saw Mr and Mrs Barks. While I was playing on the wing I saw dolphins. It was amazing!!
