Thinkboard T2W9

Image
Here is the Thinkboard for this week, which, by the way, is the last week of Term 2! I did most of the work, to be truthful. I worked with Alison and Taylor (but I did most of the work, to be truthful).

That Thursday

It was a Thursday night.

My mum was out shopping, and my dad was cooking. My brother was sitting down, looking into space, my sister was running around in layers of clothing. I was on the computer, chatting to a friend while working.

08:26 PM.

Suddenly the alarm goes off. I turn around on my computer chair. What I saw had me gasping. Smoke was everywhere, but still, my brother and sister were acting normal. "Open the door!" I yell to my sister while trying to grab something. Sorry, Abby... I say in my mind, as I get one of her favourite drawings. Waving it frantically at the alarm, I see my Dad trying to take on the fire in the oven. More smoke comes out. I see the fire, crawling out of the oven. For the first time, I breathe in smoke. I feel dizzy. Abby shows off at the worst time ever. She says words I don't understand, while opening and closing the front door.

"Abby!" I yell at her.

The smoke alarm stops yelling, and I run back to my computer...

Willy? Are yo…

2 Weekly Blogpost

It's that time! Again!

Wow, I can't believe I am still doing this "thing". I actually thought I'd give up on, like, the second post. There is a reason why this is called, "2 Weekly Blogpost", not, "1 Weekly Blogpost". See? Now, moving on...

Last week was great. Bad luck has been coming its way towards me. Me and a certain best friend experience bad things whenever we talk to each other. Sure, it may not happen all the time, but it happens most of the time. Last week, on a Tuesday, our P.E day, we did basketball skills. We went into groups, and guess who I was with? 3 friends, one of them the "certain friend", and that friend accidently threw a basketball at another person's back, and since I am standing at the worst spot, the "obvious" place to throw a ball at someone's head, I get the blame.

After a small, short, UNFAIR chase, I'm caught. I try to explain what went wrong, but it's too late. He is breathing …

500 Blogpost....

Hello.

This is my 500 blogpost. Well, I do not how to explain this, but, I do know one thing...

I got 500 blogposts! Yay!

I know I should be excited, jumping around the room, acting all "Yay! Ahh!", then my parents would give the look they always gave when I acted like that, that "what the?" look. But instead, I am just acting normal, as always when doing a blogpost. Okay, okay, not THAT normal, I feel a little hot inside of me, with my ears almost burning, you know, those cartoons where they have smoke blowing out of their ears, suddenly my ears feel like that.

Anyway, if you just skipped the start, I have 500 blogposts! 500 blogspots. Wow, I wonder what will the next hundred be...

Yeah, i'm probably gonna have a hard time. Starting again from 500, moving all the way to 600. But, i'll get there, trust me. 600, here I come?

Oh, and also, Taylor, if you're reading this, I give you credit for cheering me up throughout these months, just thanks a lot on that Fri…

Friday 13th June 2014

Friday the 13th. Bad luck day. Black Friday. There's many names for this bad day. It does impact most people in this world, including me, but, sometimes, it's the most luckiest day of all.

There is a GOOD example of luck on Friday 13th...
Friday 13th, September 2013:
We made mini cakes, and they were AWESOME. The classes were jealous. Briant's one was so delicious, whereas for mine, it was just a piece of cake with random things on it. Room 5 were making mini houses for our movie "You Are Special", which included me, for you information. While they were filming, we were all having FREE TIME!! Back then, I was in love with Tremulous, until I found out you can die (in the game, of course), and Marcus, who had his netbook taken away, and also Stanley, came to me to play on my netbook. After 5 minutes of explaining and persuading, he finally played as a human, not an alien (big, scary spiders). It was so funny, he kept on dying (probably because the life transporter…

2 Weekly Blogpost (Long)

Oh. My. Blog. These past two weeks have been A-MAZ-ING.

Last week, it was SUCH a great week, though I did forget. But, THIS week, it was mostly rainy, but it was also the best one yet. Monday was my reading test (YES! 13-14 Years!), then Tuesday was the day of a new song I wrote, entirely inspired. It all started with a spelling activity, which then ended up as a singing sensation, and also, a birth of a new group, called The Tamaki Quartet. I searched up the word, "Quartet" and it said:

quartet
kwɔːˈtɛt/
noun
A group of four people playing music or singing together.

I got it by the time I read "four". Pretty cool, honestly. It's like everything's Tamaki today:

- Tamaki Tornadoes
- Tamaki Quartet
- Tamaki Health Centre (kidding about that one, it's EAST Tamaki)
- East Tamaki (kidding AGAIN, but really, East Tamaki does have "Tamaki" in it, am I right?)
- Tamaki Primary School (to be fair, it DOES have Tamaki in it, though it has been here in Ta…

Homework Term Two, Week Six

Here is the homework that me, Chasity, Taylor and Jennifer worked together on. This is where our song, "Remember", came about, though it is the short version.

The Tamaki Quartet - Remember

Here is the song I was talking about! Now you can sing along to the lyrics on the screen! Enjoy!

Remember (Full Version)

Here is the full version of our The Tamaki Quartet's song, "Remember...", in the tune of "September" by Earth, Wind and Fire.

Do you remember,
How to examine a picture?
Describe how we pestered
About that day that would occur...

E-val-u-ate (evaluate)
On the objects that were heavy by weight (by weight)
Never justified its way,(it’s way)
Remember,
How everything changed that day...

Hey, hey, hey,

Ba de ah! You still have the knowledge!
Ba de ah! On that day you went to college!
Ba de ah! That day was really the best...

Ba-do-do, ba-do-do, -compared your evidence,
Ba-do-do, ba-do-do, -estimating the item’s lengths,
Ba-do-do, ba-do-do, -it was the sunniest day!

Sharing my work with you.
Our answers could never be so true,
But still, we weren't so blue,
Remember,
How we were all still hap-pay...

Duh, duh, duh,

If you remember,
How the work was better together!
Being partners and such,
Remember,
The partnership we share today...

Hey, hey, hey,

Homework Term Two, Week Four

Here is the homework I helped with...last week.

the Queen's Birthday

The Queen's Birthday is always on the first Monday of June, which is today!

Happy Birthday Queen Elizabeth the Second, or, if I may not be rude:

Happy Birthday Elizabeth Alexandra Mary Windsor.

May this be a glorious day for you and the Royal Family.

Okay, let's spill it. This isn't really the Majesty the Queen's birthday, it's a holiday (her actual birthday was on April 21st, i've heard), but at least we get a day off from school, work, the morning news, the noon news, the other news people seem not to be watching on the day, school again, and many more.

It is quite a good day today. The sun's shining (finally) after a cloudy and wet morning. At least it is a good day, better than a rainy day.

Last year, I made a small biography on Queen Elizabeth II, and you can find it by clicking here!

Free sport offer for pre-teens
By LAUREN PRIESTLEY

Starting out (Left): Tamaki Primary 7-year-old Edith Smith with Bruce Samu, Matthew Funaki, Simon Tanoai, Sifa Uiloula and Raena Smith who have joined the Tamaki Tornadoes. A bunch of Tamaki youngsters are shooting their way to the top of a new sport. 

A free basketball club, Tamaki Tornadoes, has been set up at the Tamaki Recreation Centre for under-13s living in Glen Innes, Panmure and Pt England. 

And there is more room on the courts. 

The idea is to foster the sport from the gro…

Ahh, great to be back....again...

What a week! I am talking about this week, not last week, why? Because it was test week! So many tests! Writing, Maths, Reading, Spelling, they were extremely hard. Trust me. Just take my word for it.

Also this week, there was another fundraiser for the Year 7 & 8 Camp. Rockstar Dress Up Day. I remember the last time that happened...I looked like a scarecrow, but this time, I looked great, and I think it was the shoes.

Yes, the shoes.

The week before this week, I went to the Church Fundraiser Car Wash, again. This time, I was extremely tired, and hardly did anything, besides from washing cars, eating, drinking, that sort of stuff. Back home I was less "tired and dizzy" than last time, probably because I wasn't near that "car wash smell", and instead, doing the signs. You know what I mean, holding the sign up to cars, yelling, I mean, informing people about the Car Wash (and that it was on their left), and that was easy, eas…
