School Uniforms are Unfair
Did you know that the school uniform represents us as a team and did you know that if we had a uniform kids wouldn't be able to make fun of other kids clothing. Also uniforms are very tidy and clean. Not messy at all! I disagree that uniforms are unfair.
Like I said before the uniform represents your school as team. Imagine your at a counties and seeing a field of other kids from different schools wearing no uniform. You wouldn't be able to tell the schools apart. It would be very frustrating trying to find your other team mates. With your uniform on you can tell that here's one school and here's another. It represents us.
Now, all the CCC, Kathmandu and Pumpkin Patch is very expensive, exclusive quality clothing. Some people can't afford this and some can. The kids who can might actually make fun of the ones who don't have it. It wouldn't be very nice if you were the one getting bullied about the clothing you have. But no one could get picked on if you are wearing the same thing.
Finally, my last reason why, is that uniforms are indeed very tidy and clean. If you were to compare mufti with uniform you will see that mufti looks a bit messy and uniform is a bit more professional and polite looking. The uniform is definitely tidy and clean.
So Im sure you now agree with me that the school uniform is fair because it represents us as a team, kids wouldn't be able to make fun of other kids clothing and the uniform is very tidy. Stop whining to your parents about it and think again about the 3 top reasons why uniforms are fair.
This term we are looking at printmaking. This print is ment to look like buildings during the sunset or sunrise and then it reflects on the water side. I think my print turned out really well. Next time I'm going to put a little bit more ink in some places where it didn't show.
Today all the year 6's went to the Ashburton Intermediate. We went into groups and they gave us a tour. I saw a lot of the X- Student Tinwald kids. In our group we looked at all the classes and where all the others sorts of things are like sports shed,toilets and office. Over all I'm a bit nervous and also a bit exited to go.
What's The Pattern?
1. 3,6,9,12... 15,18,21
2. 3,4,6,9,13,18... 24,31,39
3. 5,10,20,40,80... 160,320,640
My Own Pattern
*Coming 3rd in Long Jump with a distance of 3.02
*2nd in both of my Sprint races.
*I had to miss out on discus.I was looking forward to what score I might have gotten.
*The hot weather didn't help when doing the Long Distance Running and Sprints.
*That I got no ones as my score.I got threes!
*On the day of Athletics I did better than my practices
This term we are printmaking. It is of our hand.
1. I was pleased with...my 2nd print that looks darker and bolder.
2. Next time... I'm going to make sure I put a good layer of ink to make it stand out.
3. Since we are printing our real copy on a calendar, I wonder if... A ghost print will come out easy to see- ghost print is when the print has faded a little.
I hope my next print will turn out good.
Here are some book ideas that I found. I hope you can find something here that interests you!
My Life As An Alphabet
This isn't just about me. It's also about the other people in my life - my mother, my father, my dead sister Sky, my penpal Denille, Rich Uncle Brian, Earth-Pig Fish and Douglas Benson From Another Dimension. These are people [with the exception of Earth-Pig Fish, who is a fish] who have shaped me, made me what I am. I cannot recount my life without recounting elements of theirs. This is a big task, but I am confident I am up to it. Introducing Candice Phee: twelve years old, hilariously honest and a little ...odd. But she has a big heart, the very best of intentions and an unwavering determination to ensure everyone is happy. So she sets about trying to 'fix' all the problems of all the people [and pets] in her life. Laugh-out-loud funny and wonderfully touching, My Life as an Alphabet is a delightful novel about an unusual girl who goes to great lengths to bring love and laughter into the lives of everyone she cares about.

My dog doesn't like me
A heart-warming new book from the author of Matty Forever. Eric was given a dog for this eighth birthday - that was nearly a year ago.

Eric has several crazy ideas to make Ugly love him, but Ugly is not swayed. Eric slowly comes to realise that in order to win over Ugly, he has to put in time, effort and most importantly, show him love and affection. A life lesson wrapped up in a beautifully told story that will resonate with kids and parents - and pet lovers.
The Tunnels of Tarcoola
'Come round here!' called David. 'We've found something.' 'I'm showing them.' Andrea pushed him aside. 'It's my cave!' She lowered herself into the hole. Her head disappeared, and a moment later they heard her voice, faint and slightly hollow. 'Come on!' A network of tunnels leading under the park ...a secret exit to an abandoned mansion ...a hidden box containing missing documents ...It's all very mysterious, but it's just a game, right? Wrong. When shadowy figures start watching every move they make, Kitty, David, Andrea and Martin know they've stumbled onto more than a forgotten piece of Balmain's history. They need to find all the answers fast, before someone beats them to it.

Soon Raphael and his friends are running for their lives. Hounded by the police, it takes all their quick-thinking and fast-talking to stay ahead. As the net tightens, they uncover a dead man’s mission to put right a terrible wrong. And it's three street-boys against the world...
Stanley Yelnats' family has a history of bad luck going back generations, so he is not too surprised when a miscarriage of justice sends him to Camp Green Lake Juvenile Detention Centre. Nor is he very surprised when he is told that his daily labour at the camp is to dig a hole, five foot wide by five foot deep, and report anything that he finds in that hole. The warden claims that it is character building, but this is a lie and Stanley must dig up the truth. In this wonderfully inventive, compelling novel that is both serious and funny, Louis Sachar has created a masterpiece that will leave all readers amazed and delighted by the author's narrative flair and brilliantly handled plot.
First published in the United Kingdom in 1985, Jellybean is one of Tessa Duder's best loved children's novels, and tells the beguiling story of a lonely girl, Geraldine, whose unconventional single mother is uncomfortably different from all her schoolmates' mothers. Her mother is a professional musician - but not even something cool like a singer or a a rock star - she plays in the orchestra and occasionally in a jazz band in clubs. Jellybean is often left to her own devices, and feels sad and neglected. When a stranger comes into their life and she finds that he is someone from her mother's past, she begins to wonder if he is her mysteriously absent father. Jellybean also learns what she really wants, and that some things are so important to who you are, you have to make some challenging choices. And the hardest lesson of all is that sometimes you might want to hide away, but what you need to do is take your courage in your hands and be prepared to stand up and be seen.

On Wednesday it was Jump Rope For Heart Day. We had to pass our goals which were consecutive and how many skips in 1minute. My goals and scores were:
Non stop skipping[consecutive]=
I thought I did really well for getting 501 skips but a bit disappointed for getting a low score in the 1miute skipping though. Any it was a great day and I had lots of fun.
