The Blogging War Ends Here...

Good evening, everyone.

I have an important announcement to make.

Earlier today, during the course between 3:00pm and 4:00pm, the Blogging War, which I had begun myself on accident, and had a stressful time being in it with the surprise enemy Patosina, has come to a cautious but civil end.

But it was bittersweet, because wouldn't you know it, the side that won the war was the Grounded Allies (meaning me). A disease had started to spread throughout the campout, so it would have been a miracle, if it had stopped today. I don't know what happened to end the war, but at about 3:37pm, all the gunfire and ear-pounding banging sounds stopped. Legitimately, it took a while for all of it to die down.

It took about three minutes. I stopped and gasped in wonder of what had happened. I walked outside the tent I was in, all alone, and bizarrely, I saw just smoke, everywhere.

I try to fins my base. Phew, there were my allies coming together and forming a crowd near me. What's happening?…

The Handshake...

This little video (which hopefully works) below shows this little handshake that William, great friend and trickster, had created for me and him. It was during a handshake contest against him and Patosina (you know her), and I was the person they used for shaking their hands with multiple movements and such.
Ms Aireen suggested to us to film our handshake and post it on our blogs. So here it is, with master capturing from Brooklyn, we bring to you...
The Handshake.

Forgetting...I was forgetting...about my account on Stanley's netbook...

Yes, so you can see from the title that my day ended in some revenge for Stanley.
So, Stanley and I were having a laugh outside near the lockers. La, la, la, I put his netbook in his bag. Oh, before I continue on with this story, here's a bit of a flashback story that I completely forgot about while putting his netbook in his bag...
Stanley, with kindness, had to go upstairs to begin his GLOSS test. BEGIN, because when the bell rang, he was almost finished. I had no netbook (due to a reason I cannot tell, and if you know the story, seriously, out of respect for me and the netbook itself, do not comment below the story), so I was standing around, colouring. Stanley offers his netbook to me. I log onto my account, and did the stuff I needed to do. I close the netbook, put it in the netbook bag, and put it in Stanley's locker. And I put his netbook bag, with the netbook in it, into his bag. He goes to the bathroom, at least I suspect he is going to the bathroom, and out of insti…

Waiting...I was waiting...for Stanley...

Hi!

There was once a time where I became the most encouraging and supportive friend for ten minutes. Or more, I don't know, all I can say is that it started out great, and ended in a way I never knew existed. It all started when the bell had rang, and I was sitting in the class, waiting for everyone to walk out and get their bags.

It would be hard to get mine knowing how my locker is placed in a bad spot. Buut I still love that spot, so I'll leave it there. I was sitting down, and I saw Stanley. He couldn't go...because he had one question left. It was his GLOSS test, and he saw me, told me to stay and wait for me, and so I did. I don't know why, but I went to sit next to Stanley (not too close).

Oooh, milk for me. I hope it wasn't from Tuesday, because that would result in a bad ending to the story. So, Stanley got one...moving on (hehe), they were starting. Ms Aireen and Stanley, hurrying with the GLOSS Test, while I sit on the side, doing absolutely nothing but …

Farewelling a Friday...

Hi.

Today's been QUITE a mix of emotions. Today was the last day for Ms Macfarlane (otherwise known as Ms Kirsty, Mrs MacFarlane, Mrs Kirsty, Miss Kirsty, or Miss Macfarlane), and to honour her, almost everyone came to school dressed as an animal. Oh, forgot, she was going to work at the Auckland Zoo, her dream job. So, everyone's in their animal onesies and costumes and colourful clothing and such, and I come to school in uniform.

But it's not what you think. At school, where almost EVERYONE was shaming me for not honouring, I got some paper out...got a brown colouring pencil...coloured the paper brown...got some scissors, cut the paper into circles...got some double-sided tape, put it on the back of the paper...sticked it on myself, on my yellow uniform t-shirt...and there!

I was a giraffe!

But anyway, the Student Council had spent a number of days preparing the assembly, some designing the farewell card on behalf of the Kia Manawanui Syndicate. I wrote a poem for Ms Mac…

Riddle Me Wednesday!

Hi, again.

Welcome back to the weekly Riddle Me Wednesday post. Gotta love riddles...get the brain going, but that’s only if you get the answer right. Or maybe that’s not the reason, because it opens your mind up for creativity and...open...stuff...anyway, here’s last week’s riddle: I have many feathers to help me fly. I have a body and head, but I'm not alive. It is your strength which determines how far I go. You can hold me in your hand, but I'm never thrown. What am I?
A person comment in the last post if it was something. Unfortunately, it was incorrect. Ooh! Crike! But at least it was a good guess!
The answer...an arrow. Reading the riddle, I hope you get it...
Now for this week's riddle...
Railroad crossing without any cars. Can you spell that without any R's?
Can you spell that without any R's?
Can you? If you can, comment your answer below! Now from now, I will not reply, because it makes the answer obvious...

Have a Go! That's the name of this FRUSTRATING GAME!

Image
Hi, again.

This is not Whaea Petra, this is Willy. You can obviously tell by the language I use.

About now, uh, Brodie has SUCCESSFULLY FINISHED ONE OF THE QUESTIONS, but that is as good as I can think it can be good.

A little note, he says, this was at the highest difficulty. Level Three.

And he answered the question correctly!!! Yaaayy!!!


Oh, by the way, this was the result last time, when it was frustrating...


It's harsh! I know, right!

Perimetres Game. Or was it Areas, I don't know for sure....

Image
Hi.

This post is written on Whaea Petra's account, but believe me, this is Willy typing this down.

About now, me and Brodie (also known as Equals Ten) completed this presentation from before. I may have blogged about it before. Yeah, I think I blogged it before.

Then we both went onto this game. This game, according to Brodie, was very frustrating. He wasn't wrong. This was because, every time, he kept on getting that one question wrong. Don't get me wrong, I don't mean that when I say he got it wrong, it was a mistake. Wow, this sounds harsh.

But not as harsh as the game! Haha!

Then I played it. He said to me it was on the hardest level, the level being Level Three. SO, we did Level One together.

It was soooooo easy...

Proof? Look below.



In a statement, Brodie said:
That this game is so frustrating, if you get the same question wrong FOUR times, um, it would ask you to go tell the teacher. No, ASK the teacher for help. Um, at the moment, the teacher was busy with test…

Striking Bomb!! | The Blogging War...

Hi.

Earlier today, almost to the end of May, my allies and troops, well, practically my whole army, I suppose, were surrounded by a smoke bomb. It happened between 11am and 12:15pm. Before the whole bombing tragedy occurred, all I can say is that I was in the middle of starting the immigration plan. There were towns and cities nearby that were being bombarded by the war, some even being held against their will to go onto one of the three sides!

I didn't do that, by the way. That's wrong.

So there was a plan to immigrate the people struggling to cope living NEXT to the war. It was too organise other places for them to live, so they can have a better place to live off and prosper.

Then an unexpecting bomb fell into my grounds. It wasn't an ordinary bomb, it was that type of bomb that smelled of something, something fowl and awful. It was so awful, in fact, it caused a bad reaction...spewing.

Eww. And to believe I thought getting into dirt was bad enough. It affected the fiel…

Multiplication In Parts with Larger Numbers (in this case, one digit number x three digit number)

Image
For now I finished one part of a task provided for maths. It was about using a strategy, which I can say proves EXTREMELY helpful now. I had an unfinished equation (for example, 4 x 245), and then I split them into just their own place value, and multiplied it by the one digit number (for example, using the previous example, 4 X 5, 4 X 40, and 4 X 200). I answered those small, mini, equations, added the three answers I got, and there! The answer!

This picture below shows the hard to see, yet easy to work on bookwork I did on this task. It was so cool, but then I realized I was by myself, and the first page was done, I decided to leave it there. Ta-da!

Pink Shirt Day at Tamaki Primary

On Friday, maybe I should say yesterday, was Pink Shirt Day, a day for everyone to celebrate everyone's differences and prevent/stop bullying. Tamaki Primary was involved, and gosh, didn't everyone, especially teachers, become surrounded in pink! I was surprised! That Stanley wore a pink band on his wrist...

A pink band. On his wrist.

And I came to school with a pink shirt and white pants. Like, seriously, I have never worn white pants so white. Oh, no, wait, the Tamaki Primary Movie Festival in 2012. Aah, good times. ANYWAY, in the morning, everyone was walking about, not minding the pink, and I came to school quite early. Isn't that a miracle. I came early.

Skipping to after nine o'clock, the Student Councillors stayed behind while the rest of the school were enjoying a waste management assembly. I bet they had a good time, but at least I developed some ingenuity, you know, the Student Council got Pink Shirt stickers and it ran out, and I didn't know, until the m…

School Values in a Myth - How Kiwi Lost His Wings

Image
Hi, here is a drawing showing you the Tamaki Primary School Values (Rangimarie, Tukumarie, Whanaungatanga, and Manaakitanga) in the myth called, "When Kiwi Lost His Wings". I completed this task with my fellow friend/possible (not PROBABLE) ally, Stanley.

It took a while to work it out, as we were busy with a, uh, special event. Maybe you know about it...

Riddle Me Wednesday!

Welcome back to Riddle Me Wednesday! Where I revive the slow posts of riddles from two years ago, and using the power of my mind, bring the riddles back to life...on my blog! Just remember, these riddles I give to you, the reader, are not my creation. All rights go to the creator/s of the said riddle. Now let’s get on with it! Last week’s riddle: What is once in a minute, twice in a moment, and never in a thousand years?

If you were one of the people that answered in the previous post...the answer was actually 'N' so TAKE THAT!

No, sorry, it was the letter 'M'.

If you got that one right, good on you! And good job if you used your thinking caps, not the internet. Because cheating is not that cool, if you think about it. Moving on from that short, little, note, here’s this week’s riddle!

I have many feathers to help me fly. I have a body and head, but I'm not alive. It is your strength which determines how far I go. You can hold me in your hand, but I'm never thr…

BREAKING!

Aagh!

I mean, hi!

I just got a quick report from the, uh.............

Newsboy? I don't know why there would be a newsboy in the middle of a war but you know, there was a newsboy. He gave the blimmin' wrong news to me!

Gosh, dang it!

It seems Sergeant Stanley wasn't going to give up after all. Apparently, it was a blimmin' JOOOKE.

He says in a statement in the latest article, in the second paragraph:
"I am not giving up. I am still striving to win this war, even though I am a bit low on ammo and the requirements for war and such, that does not mean that I will give in.
"The reason why I am not giving up to Patosina and Willy, is because Jarryd Hayne also never gives up and he inspired me to never give up and strive for my goals. No more comment." Folks, this is why the media are sometimes incorrect, you know. At first you think someone's given up, then next they say themselves they weren't in the first place.

This is why wars bring up SO much drama…

Avenger? | The Blogging War

Hi, there.
After the little bond me and my once-enemy Stanley had, when we were both desperate to get out of Patosina's grip of her bombing of blog posts, Stanley had a shocking announcement...
He was going to give up.
He was giving in.
He had no other command for his troops, who were not aware of their surroundings. You see, on the 13th of Wednesday, twenty minutes after noon, Stanley and his army went on to continue their soon failed campaign. They boarded up Patosina's land boundary, and unfortunately, Patosina's groups and power allies were already ready, and before you know it...
"Too many casualties to handle," as he said. "I giving up." he continued, "It's too hard to catch up to you and Pat. You're at 40 and she's at 42...and I'm all the way back at 32. I'm giving up, Willy.". Stanley was losing hope. But I started this war. I should at least help the first person I battled with...
So...from now, including this post…

Significance of a Myth from My Culture (Samoan)

This presentation is going to tell you about a significant myth in my culture. I'm Samoan, and one myth that brings significance is the Sina and the Eel myth.

I'll try to complete the Slide 6 task (when I have to ask my family about the importance of the myth I chose), but besides that this is what I have so far. I WISH I could do a Movenote Presentation on this, but sadly without a netbook, or a webcam, I can't. Dang it, me.

Tawhirimatea

Image
Hi. This is the DLO Activity where we had to group ourselves into threes, and find information about a Maori God that were chosen from Ms Aireen, or the group themselves. I did this Maori God, Tawhirimatea, with Danisha and Stanley. McKoy tried getting in the way, but in the end, he was back in his original group.

It was hard, because we spent most of the time arguing about McKoy barging in, getting in our group for no reason, then Ms Aireen came to check, and thanks to my quick-thinking of changing words, Wikipedia, and another website, we were sorted!

Done in the library.

Solving a Word Problem using Number Strategies

Hi. <- Seriously I don't know any other way of introducing a post besides that. The presentation below shows Equals Ten's thinking on a word problem, which is also in the presentation. It took a lot of thinking (for me), and a lot of time (for me). In fact, I was SUPPOSED to complete this post a long time ago, but there was something else. There was always something else.


This presentation is dedicated to our still and always beloved friend, Tanisslous. *sniff* *sniff* Why must I *sniff* sniff so much today?! He is a good guy, always knew what the answer was, and would always get in your face...literally, he did that once. And since he is gone, you know...he used to pickpocket me all the time!! You know this one time he actually taught me how to pickpocket...
It ended up badly. The guy I was literally pickpocketing saw me, and I found something QUITE surprising. It's less weirder than the item you're thinking right now. I won't tell.

Reality Strikes Back | 2 Weekly Post - 11th May - 15th May

Onto this week now, and Monday was the trip to the Auckland War Memorial Museum. In the morning, though, it was quite a lucky escape. I was supposed to go to the Breakfast Club. So was Mehi, at least I think she was. Anyway, there had been a fire alarm that was set off, and rumours said that it all started, in the hall...where Breakfast Club usually takes place.

Talk about lucky! I would've been humorously shamed! You know what I mean by humorously shamed, like making an incident, and the person, the butt of a joke. But Mrs Micic was in the hall. Dang it, I should've went there anyway, helped her. Luckily I have a short story for why I didn't go.

I was, uh...helping Brandon and Miss (couldn't decide which title to choose, sorry) Thompson with the patrols. Of course, I wasn't trained, but I did help put out the, uh...the, um...lollipop-sign-stick-orange-black signs, yes. And after, well...I went up to class, not to be late, but early, to get ready for the trip!

And …

Items in the Classroom, in Te Reo Maori and English

Image
Hi again. This post is about our Languages lesson earlier this week. The language we did...Te Reo Maori. We had to gather objects in the classroom, write them in English first, then translate them, with the help of an online Maori Dictionary, into Te Reo Maori. 
It was quite a debate for the words we chose, and we had to choose them carefully, because some words did mean the words we had, but were used in a different subject.
I did this task and DLO with Stanley and Lolo. They did a lot of work, so I deserved to work the weekend off on this. It was worth it!
This was the end result. And more apologies if there are any mistakes or any, um...can I say offensive? I don't know, I-I-I'm not really confident to say that.

Comparing and Contrasting A Myth and a Legend

Image
Hi. This is a comprehension activity between a legend and a myth. Robin Hood and the Potter is the legend, and The Rainbow Crow is the myth. Because T.R.C explains about how the crow came to be, which is like a myth. R.H and the Potter is a legend because it has been exaggerated with the dialogue. Here you go! I did this task with...with...Stanley, I did it with Stanley.

Enjoy the drawing and the completed masterpiece...


Started Great, Ended Sad | 2 Weekly Post - 4th May - 8th May

So on this week it was a pleasure. A pleasure to just start at the beginning of the week, having no such worry whatsoever. Besides a little reading probe test, yes, I was a little worried, but besides that, I thought this was going to be a good week.

Oh, and Patosina received a new ally. Ma'asi. She's a good one, sharp aim, straight to the point. Oh, goodness, and they were extremely close to enemy lines. Oh, goodness, what could I do, aim for Stanley's area or Patosina's. I didn't know, so, without interruption, troops from my side were being tormented. Luckily, though, they got back.

And this language is becoming extremely confusing for me to put you in a blogging war experience.

Let me move onto Tuesday without getting in the way of the war. In the morning, I did some maths, with a maths lesson from Whaea Petra. Of course, in a post I did on this particular day, this was not quite the lesson that I expected. In fact, it was a great one, solving a problem using w…

He May Be Back...

There is a Bike Track at Tamaki Primary School Now...
There's going to be a person to film it...
...But besides that...
...There will be the guy to report it...
...The guy to edit it...
...The guy to showcase it....
Who is that person?

His last name's Burnley.

School Values in a Myth from My Culture

Image
Here is a drawing about the values Rangimarie (Peace), Tukumarie (Tolerance), Whanaungatanga (Building Relationships), and Manaakitanga (Caring). These are the values of Tamaki Primary. In this DLO you will see the school values being incorporated into the Samoan Myth (I'm Samoan, so...), Sina and the Eel. Enjoy!

Finishing "Sum" Maths Problems!! Haha!!

Image
Hi! I forgot to post this post (hehe) last week, because...well, I don't know why it didn't come up, probably because I was busy learning signs! Ha! But back to the subject before I start talking to myself, I played this maths learning game. I forgot the name, but I had to complete sum questions (<- this is one of the best puns I've ever heard...ever).
So this game. Learning game, I mean. I had to make the correct maths equation using the numbers given. For example, like the picture below, the original numbers were 8, 4, and 2. I had to look at the numbers. Of course, it wasn't long until I found out using 4 and 2 (or 2 and 4, but in this case it was 4 and 2) it would make 8.
But with every game there's a catch. At least I think there is. I could choose how many questions I would set out to do in how many minutes. At last I chose a challenge, after doing ten in two minutes. Pfft. I could do it in ONE MINUTE. I failed the 1st time, and you know what...
I failed …

Riddle Me Wednesday!

Hi! Back for another riddle? Once a week? Here’s last week’s riddle; What word can be written forward, backward or upside down, and can still be read from left to right?

The answer...Noon! Or in this case, NOON.
Get it? Because if you get the word ‘NOON’ and turn it upside down, it’s still ‘NOON’ and if you read it backwards, it’s still ‘NOON’, and before you know it, the answer is noon! Now for this week’s riddle...
What is once in a minute, twice in a moment, and never in a thousand years?
HINT: Don't think too hard on this. Read every word very closely.

Seventeen Pictures I Grabbed from the Auckland Museum Trip!

Image
Hi! Just now I finally got into the Kia Manawanui Site (without the computer crashing) and found the pictures from the day we went to the Auckland War Memorial Museum. I forgot one word in the whole thing, dang it. But anyway, check out these pictures!




A Trip to the Auckland Memorial Museum!

Earlier today the Kia Manawanui Syndicate were off to the Auckland War Memorial Museum to learn a bit more about Myths and Legends. It was a great experience filled with discoveries, story-telling, lots of engagement, and of course learning! I've been to the museum before, just for fun, and one time in 2011, and this experience, by far, has been the most amazing, because I learnt so much stuff!

Like during the ancient archaeology lesson that the Year Eights had before lunch, I learnt about this little mummy-like figure, which to my surprise was reeally old. I forgot how old, but I bet it was, like, two-thousand to five-thousand years old? I don't know, but you do know, reader, then give me a comment.

And then there was this mummy that the Year Eights saw after the archaeology lesson. It, according to the description behind it, was a real one. Luckily, it was already passed on. I seriously thought it was alive after how many years! Haha! But yes, the mummy. It was a female, pro…

Sudden Realisations | New Zealand Sign Language Lesson

Image
Hi!

Just today, and since it was the seventh day of the New Zealand Sign Language Week, I decided to go onto the official website...and learn some signs! It was pure easy, once I got used to it! There were signs like "baby"..."work"..."love"..."kiwi"...I almost learnt all seven signs the website showed up with.

Then I went back to the sign learning game I talked a little about before in a previous post. I started off on preparing my character. Boy. Black hair. Brown eyes. For those I learnt the signs as well. Then this family tree showing only my sister, brother, mother, and father. To be honest, I think they got my life well! Get it? Because I have one brother and one sister. Wow.

Onto the next area of signing. Food, I think it was. It was cool. Just like before. The sign for apple, the sign for orange, the sign for water, the sign for milk. I couldn't believe, once again, that the signs for these items would look like...like...oh, I can…

I Shall Not Give In... | The Blogging War

My netbook's gone. I'm unarmed. I can't believe it. My plan to beat the others have gone to custard. Now the resources I have are restricted. Limited, even. What I can do...with my soldiers dying all of a sudden due to an early case of influenza, is just to protect myself. Or maybe, if I'm lucky, hide myself from the attackers.
Their plans are working. Crike!
I can't hide. I've got some troops from the other sides just tormenting the land I own. Well, I don't own it. But you get what I mean. What should I do, with all this chaos just happening as I type this down a secret computer??

Riddle Me More Late...

Ha! Again! Dang! I did it again!

I forgot to find another riddle for the Riddle Me Wednesday posts!

I need a plan...ha, reference to previous post, right there. I think it is. Nevermind, what matters now is the answer to last week's riddle, which was...

What question can you never answer?

The answer is (get it?)...

What's it like to be dead?

I know, pretty...pretty...pretty...weird. But this is to be this week's riddle...

What word can be written forward, backward or upside down, and can still be read from left to right?

Here's a hint: Think of midnight, for example. Middle of the night...

Comment below if you know the answer! It helps!

Friend Needed Poster! | Skills For Adolescence

Image
Hi!

Yesterday (Friday), was another lesson into Skills For Adolescence! Yay! For this task, I had to make a poster about getting a friend. Or, in my drawing, trying to find a friend right now. In Mr H's words, I had to pretend I never had a single friend. Ever. Not one. So this task was actually hard to do, knowing having absolutely no friends whatsoever is not logical. Right?

So this poster is like a wanted-like poster, but in this case, it's a needed-poster. Get it? Need is better than want, because it's more reasonable!

Enjoy!


Oh, goodness me

Everyone.

I have the worst news ever for a blogger like me.

My netbook has been broken, and I am lucky enough to type down this post.

I don't know how it happened, my screen is cracked.

I can't do anything to fix it. I can't even see what I'm actually typing, hence the mistakes. I don't know how to recover from this tragedy. Should upgrade or wait for a fiing job?

"Signing" Stuff! | New Zealand Sign Language Week Lesson

Hi!

On Tuesday, it was said that it was New Zealand Sign Language Week. I didn't know at all! I saw an ad about it but I didn't know it was this week! I feel so...so...I don't know how I feel! I forgot!

But anyway we were learning how to sign our name. By that I mean introduce ourselves (and name) in sign language.

It was a great time. We played this sign master game, where not only do you explore the levels and become a master, but also, learn new signs! I wish I could show you the signing but sadly, my WEBCAM decided not to go on today. What a great start towards 900...

So I can only describe what happened. Stanley, Mehi, and Danisha had no netbooks. I did. So, guess which person had to lend their netbook for the table to see? Me. And I thought I was going to do it by myself. But, you know, sharing is caring! I went onto the site, scrolled down, then up, then down, then realised I was still on the homepage. Back to resources, heh, we clicked on the signs for letters, and…

800...

Hi.

This is my 800 post! Yay!

Now it's past 11 and I need my sleep, so it's probable that this is going to be the shortest milestone post I've ever done.

Just 200 posts away from 1000. I hope I can make it. And in the timeframe of 2 minutes, this is all I wrote for my 800 post. Thank you so, so so, so much for reading and I am really tired so yes, good evening and night to you, and have a great day tomorrow. 'Cause you are awesome...

Milk!

Image
Hi!

If you didn't know, and probably you didn't if you've read my blog, but the school I am in has been offered free milk to help us with our learning. It's so great, it's a different kind of milk! It's lighter! I can't believe it! Lighter! And the best thing of all, I can sometimes have more than one. Possible that's unfair, but I can't resist having another one...or even threee??

So this post is the post where I can introduce once and for all that we get milks delivered to us, and we can enjoy the wonders of milk. Here's a picture of me randomly taken during our milk-drinking...

And it gives facts, too. Did you know that by the age of 13 (like me), you could have adult teeth, like, for all your teeth? You could already have adult teeth at 13! Amazing!

And did you know that it's to build strong bones? Did you know we have-oh, no, nevermind, I forgot the number of bones we have in our body...

But yes, we have milk! Great!

My Pepeha!

Image
Hi!
Sorry for the late post, but this is my Pepeha that I shared with the class quite some time ago. It took a lot of time, and a lot of thinking, to put this together. Especially with the help of Whaea Petra, thank you. So, enjoy reading, and if you want to know the almost-translation, then read the translation below. And I apologize if I get some stuff wrong.

Translation (and apologies if I get it wrong):
Hello, My Dad is Fili My Mum is Maluai I live in Panmure My family is from Samoa My mountain is Wellington My river is Panmure Basin My name is Willy So, Thank you, thank you, thank you all.

Maths! With Great Participation!

Image
Hi!

I know I shouldn't say "Hi!", I know. But don't you feel like I'm talking to you?

Anyway, earlier today there was the normal routine of maths. Oh, maths. How I love it. I get to learn from my mistakes, quickly, and get back to normal in just a jiffy. With lots of help, of course.

My group...I mean, me and Brodie, otherwise known as Equals Ten (Tanisslous apparently wasn't at school today), were being taught by Whaea Petra, with Ten Percent (members including Deandra, Brandon, Cypress, James, and Mehi), and for today we were not being taught about strategies for solving problems. Yep. This went downhill so quickly, didn't it?

No, we, as two groups, and because we had different strategies for answering a question...we were to solve a problem using what we know. That was actually really cool! Haven't been in that kind of situation before, but gosh, it felt good! Such fun!

Up until the point where I did something wrong. At least I think I did. I don…

Second Part of Gilgamesh Activity...

Image
Hi!

This is the SECOND part of the Reading Task for Gilgamesh, a historical figure remaining in history for being the king of Uruk, Iraq, and in the end, I did this drawing all to do with the ingredients in what I think is a myth...

There are some ingredients in the drawing that were supposed to be in there, but the story didn't show much or any in it, so this is all I had.

Enjoy.


My First, True, Christmas.

So, hi, there. Making another post here. Thanks for the idea, Ms Aireen! Hehe, she's my ally, but don't tell the others. But anyway, below this is my recount from last term, in which it was for the writing sample for Term One. Enjoy reading!

And by the way the way how I wrote in this recount is almost different to how I blog. Just pointing that out.

Christmas, 2005. Morning. I woke up, staring at the ceiling. Cold, but still a gentle glow in my body. Standing up onto the wooden floor, I gazed into my brother’s waking eyes. He was just lying there, awake. I walked to the living room to find my parents sitting down with a bunch of people. They were my uncles, aunts, grandparents, and cousins. Because I was a little boy, I didn’t know that at the time, so I thought they were friends. 
We were getting ready for Christmas, and they were all here because it (in 2005) was our new home, and this was our first Christmas. Feeling loved by all the smiles and happiness, I decided to hug e…

The Blogging War Update.

Morning to you!

Uh....um...I don't know what to write right now. Stanley's on the other side. Our troops are failing, but luckily the casualties are about level. I need to make a bigger plan. Now I'm dealing with a crisis here. One of Stanley's men have come forth onto our side. I need to find a way to get rid of him.

He's right here. I need to be subtle. He's resisting! And he just revealed a secret of somesort!

It's truuue. Stanley's in the land on no one. This is my chance to get him down....

BOMB.

SURPRISE ENEMY??? | The Blogging War...

Oh, my goodness, comrades!

We've got ourselves a new enemy!

Her name...Patosina. She was once a supporter of mine, now she's gone out and betrayed me. I can't stand writing this down. Traitor! And to think she said she will beat me and Stanley at our own war?!

This just got interesting...

And she's got more posts...Who WILL survive with the new enemy, surprising the two former comrades in an attempt to win the blogging war?

Find out later on, in the Blogging War updates.

Project Willy? | The 2 Weekly Post (2) - 28th April - May 1st

Tuesday, let's start with Tuesday. Oh, yes...A Day in the Life of a Year Nine. Us Year Eights, along with other Year Eights across other schools in the area, went off to the local Tamaki College to experience what a "normal" college day for a Year Nine would be like.

To be frank, truthful, and honest, it was quite a fun experience. Got to meet old friends there, and made a few acquaintances, but that's alright. More so, if I get the chance, you'll find out what I did that may be regretful in a couple of months...

Let's switch to Wednesday now. What I can say about Wednesday was that I started on making the A Day in the Life of a Year Nine posts, and lost a bit of focus on my project, but luckily I gained focus, thanks to Mehi, who reminded me.

Since Wednesday's a bit forgetful, here's Thursday. Wow, wasn't this a busy day. Mostly Technology. The group were split up into smaller groups, and in those groups, they had to start on a design plan for th…

Call to Action! A Blogging War...

Hi. Sergeant Willy here. This is my slightly-big short and unexplanatory-like video that is telling you to go onto my side of this Blogging War...

A Day in the Life of a Year Nine...Math Mayhem and Laughs

Image
Okay, after going inside, we prepare for maths. Or, like I say in the "About Me" column, mathematics! I love mathematics! So, my group went up the stairs, with me doing a small dance on the floor because it was slippery. Mathematics lesson with Mr Sharma. Sitting down, he explains to everyone that there would soon be a race, but for now we were to play some coordinate games on Mr Sharma's maths site.

So, with Chasity, Cypress, Danielle, Stanley, and myself, we were onto it. Wait, Chasity was just putting her netbook up, and she was doing my internet. Cypress was fine with his internet for some reason. Hmm.

Stanley didn't have one. Apparently. His netbook was dead (meaning its battery was so low it won't turn on).

Onto the first game, hopefully I can find the picture.



This screenshot was from a game in which I, well, mostly Stanley and Cypress, filled a puzzle with puzzle pieces, while thinking of the coordinates. We weren't so good with coordinates.

It was li…
